Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Hospital recently had a big successful operation happen!
Surgeons at the Cape Town school and hospital in South Africa performed a nine hour operation for a penis transplant on a 21-year-old man who lost his penis to amputation after having it circumcised.
When the operation was complete, medical professionals thought it would take two years for the man to regain all of his penis functions, but actually it only took

Rihanna is showing off her wild side - no not THAT one - in South Africa, and girlfriend is showing her fangs!
Okay, not really, but she sure knows how to intimidate a penguin, doesn't she??
After squaring off with a lion cub, RiRi took in the sights of Cape Town on Tuesday and decided to take a family trip to the Two Oceans Aquarium where she met her match. Literally! She ran into a penguin who was totally stealing her look (above) and so, naturally, she went face-to-face with the little guy.
After posting the pic, she then moved on to bigger and scarier water guys by

Don't get us wrong!
We adore Charlize Theron; she's an absolute Goddess!!
On the red carpet, the South African beauty is hotter than the sun! And she shines brighter too!
In Cape Town last week, cameras caught her sipping bubbly with her Mama at Cafe Caprice!
We love seeing the talented actress make time for family, but we'd be remiss if we didn't acknowledge her less than glamourous look on this particular afternoon!
Charlize shaved her beautiful blonde locks months ago to

Linkin Park is sending their thoughts and prayers to the family of one dead fan and 19 others that were injured at a concert in Cape Town, South Africa on Wednesday.
Strong winds blew over a billboard, erected by a sponsor outside the stadium, before the show began.
It wasn't until after their performance that the band had learned of the tragedy. Even though they "had no relationship with the sponsor or the entity responsible" for the accident, it sounds like they feel pretty bad.
Check out the band's response … AFTER THE JUMP!!!

So much for the Rockies!
Sources close to Cheryl Cole are reporting that she IS on vacation with friend Derek Hough, but the two are actually spending time in Cape Town, South Africa - after the Dancing With The Stars cast member made sure there was no way she could contract anything like malaria there!
The insider explains:
“He wanted to make sure Cheryl had a good start to 2011 after her worst year ever. Then he just told her to pack a bag as he’d organized a holiday for them. Friends warned about going back to Africa so soon afterwards. But Derek did his homework and found Cape Town to be a malaria-free region. Cheryl can relax and be pampered which is what she wanted.”
We're glad to hear that she is getting the rest that she deserves after such a tough year!
Here's looking forward in 2011, bb! Enjoy your vacay!

This morning, Khloe and Kim Kardashian arrived at the Ellerman House in Cape Town, South Africa.
Say what?! South Africa? What are they doing there?!
Going global, what else?
Always the entrepreneurs, we hear the ladies ventured to the country to
hock sell a new flavor of one of the country's most popular libations, Brutal Fruits.
Busy, busy, busy. Looks like the flight might have been a little rough on them too. They don't seem their usual chipper selves to us!
