Rumors were flying Monday morning as Lil' Kim fans feared the worst — that the Queen Bee herself was dead.
It simply couldn't be. Lil' Kim posted on Twitter Sunday night, a retweet from Kourtney Kardashian offering Kim's famous words: "You wanna bumble with the bee, huh? Throw a hex on the whole family."
- "I haven't been online one morning and Lil Kim died? Oh my goodness," posted Fuzzy Wuzzy.
- "Wait, Lil' Kim died last night?" asked former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
- "First Hitchens, now Lil' Kim — bad week for atheists," wrote Bill Maher.
In other Kim-comparison news, Mother Jones reposted a chart from its May/June issue from 2003, measuring the Korean leader against the former Junior MAFIA member. Looking at 13 points of notoriety, Jong Il was given the edge.
Fair enough . . . The guy did have an armored train, after all.
