Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobbi Kristina Shades Angela Bassett, Says She Looks Male?

Posted in: , , ,

Bobbi Kristina is not happy that she isn't being cast to play any role, especially that of her mother  in the upcoming Lifetime movie about Whitney Houston. 

The movie will be directed by well known actress, Angela Basset, who is also a friend to Whitney after they acted together in Waiting To Exhale.

Bobbi Kristina went on Twitter over the weekend to respond to comments said to have been made by Angela Basset on selecting the best actress to play the role of Whitney Houston in the movie.

Angela spoke about the movie which is now in pre-production in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, and said she never thought of selecting Bobbi to play her famous mother because she didn't regard her as an actress.

Lupita's Side Hustle in College Was Braiding Hair For Friends, Watch Her Show Her Skills!

Posted in: , , , ,

Lupita Nyong'o is smart, beyond talented, and all around amazing. But what most of us didn't know was that she loves braiding hair for her friends.

On her recent photoshoot with Vogue [see here], the Oscar-winning actress filmed an intimate hair video where she braided a group of her closest girlfriends' hair—basically giving us a direct view into what it’s really like to be her bestie.

I was expecting to see Chimamanda Adichie there, and though she's not, it's easy to see that the two will be besties in due time.

Lupita explains that she learnt how to braid hair in Kenya intending for it to be her side hustle while in college and graduate school in the US, but while she braided her college friends hair all the time, she didn’t have the heart to charge them after all.

Married at 14, Pregnant at 15, Dead at 21? Child Bride Facing Execution For Killing Abusive Husband

Posted in: , ,

Razieh Ebrahimi was married at 14, had a child at 15, shot her husband at 17 and is now on death row aged just 21.

Charities including Human Rights Watch are fighting to have her sentence repealed and hold it up as an example of brutal capital punishment in Iran and other countries.

 International law prohibits the execution of child offenders but in Iran, girls as young as nine and boys aged 15 or older can be killed for some crimes, including murder.

 Authorities arrested Ebrahimi – called “Maryam” in the local press – four years ago after she shot her husband in the head as he was sleeping and buried his body in the garden, a source told Human Rights Watch.

Magazine Covers - Burn Victim Turia Pitt is Inspirational

Posted in: , ,

Australian Women's Weekly decided to feature burn victim Turia Pitt as the cover girl for its July issue, and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. 

Major women's magazines are typically covered by models, or celebrities. Hollywood actresses, superstar singers or athletes are photographed in the best lights, and then they are photoshopped and airbrushed to perfection.

Turia Pitt is not in any of those professions, but her cover is more inspirational than any I've usually seen. Both on her part, and also on the part of the Magazine editors.

Pitt, who was part of a panel for the mag's annual Women of the Future scholarship awards, was chosen for her inspirational story.

When Did You Learn that #LikeAGirl Was A Bad Thing?

Posted in: , , ,

Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is one of those little underhanded ways society keeps putting girls and women down and somehow, we never really think much about it.

However, it is indeed a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty's really no picnic either, it's easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl's self-confidence.

Sometimes I get scared about being potentially a mom to a little girl that I have to nurture to adulthood with her self-esteem intact when she will keep meeting all these bumps in the road. Remember Ban Bossy?

Watch the video and let's discuss. Do you do stuff like YOURSELF or you do it #LikeAGirl - the way society tells you?

T.I and Tiny Back Together? The Couple Attended BET Awards and Pre-Party Together

Posted in: , ,

Rumors of divorce or at least a break-up have been trailing rapper T.I and his wife Tiny for months now after both had been noted subbing the other on social media. In many cases it has been T.I calling out his wife on pictures she posts on Instagram.

T.I also got into a street fight with Floyd Mayweather in Vegas last month [read here], and then a social media war with fellow rapper Azalea a couple of weeks ago [here].

Now, it seems T.I and Tiny have kissed and made up, and want to put the speculations of divorce to rest.

The couple were photographed sitting together at the BET Awards last night, and were also spotted cuddling up and holding hands at T.I.'s BET pre-show mansion party.

Nigeria Loses 2 - 0 to France And Thus Ends Our World Cup Journey

Posted in: , ,

Captain, Joseph Yobo, scored an own goal during today's World Cup round of 16 soccer match between France and Nigeria. But his mistake at the final minute was just the nail in the coffin.

The Super Eagles had a goal ruled out for offside in the first half after Emmanuel Emenike scored the first goal of the match with a cross from Ahmed Musa. That first half belonged to Nigeria as France started slowly.

However, France finished strongly in the second half with their striker Paul Pogba scoring a late header from a corner kick that broke Nigeria's defence.

Oscar Pistorius Had No Mental Disorder When He Shot Girlfriend Reeva Steemkamp

Posted in: , ,

A panel of psychiatrists has found that Oscar Pistorius did not suffer from any mental illness that impacted his ability to know right from wrong when he fatally shot his girlfriend.

Pistorius, a double-amputee Olympic sprinter, has spent a month as an outpatient at Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital in Pretoria, South Africa, for a mental evaluation that the judge in his murder trial ordered.

The results state that Oscar Pistorius was able to understand the wrongfulness of what he had done, and appeared to remove the possibility that he could be declared not guilty because of a mental disorder. This would have meant that instead of prison for a guilty verdict, he would have been referred to a state psychiatric institute for care.

#HobbyLobby Wins Supreme Court Case Not to Insure Women's Contraception Against Their Faith

Posted in: , , ,

The US Supreme Court has ruled today, 5-4, that the government can't require certain "family owned and small business" employers to provide insurance coverage for methods of birth control and emergency contraception that conflict with their religious beliefs.

In a deeply divisive case pitting advocates of religious liberty against women’s right’s groups, the Supreme Court said today that two for profit corporations with sincerely held religious beliefs do not have to provide a full range of contraceptives at no cost to their employees pursuant to the Affordable Care Act.

In the case Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, the majority opinion was written by Justice Samuel Alito who insists that for purposes of the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, closely held corporations should be regarded as “persons” and have their religious freedoms upheld.

Annie Idibia Chats With Toolz About Husband Tuface, Motherhood, Career and Life

Posted in: , , , ,

Annie Idibia the wife of 2Face Idibia, one of Africa's most decorated and successful artists, is on the hot seat this week, talking to Toolz about motherhood, career and love.

She gives us the juice on their movie-like first meeting, and the friendship and love that has endured through ups and downs. She said she is not fazed by the fact of his superstardom, but that when she wakes up beside him, all she can think of is 'Oh, I really love this boy'.

I like Toolz put her on the spot about why she said yes to 2Face even when had so many other women and children in his life, and her relationship with them all now.

The United States Reveals They Still Have No Idea Where Kidnapped Chibok Girls Are

Posted in: , , , ,

The United States through Pentagon spokesman, Rear Admiral John Kirby, reportedly admitted that US troops in Nigeria have not found out where the abducted Chibok girls are.

“We don’t have any better idea today than we did before about where these girls are, but there’s been no letup of the effort itself,” Kirby said about the search for the over 200 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram.

He also said that the US troops had decreased their surveillance flights in Nigeria, but explained that the overall search levels were unchanged due to international involvement, as there are now more flights by other countries including UK and France.

The report insists the U.S  is unrelenting in efforts to locate and rescue the girls.

Daddy Time - Aliko Dangote and Daughters

Posted in: , , ,

Aliko Dangote is one of Africa’s most popular business men billionaires, but it's amazing how one never hears much about his family. 

Well, I was reading something and was so surprised when I saw this picture of Aliko Dangote with his daughter, Halima. The picture was taken back in May at the Nominee's Gala for the TIME’s most influential 100 people around the world.

Halima is Aliko’s second daughter, and it is reported that Aliko Dangote has only daughters, Zainab, Halima, Fatima and Salma.

Did Prince Harry Just Say Nephew Prince George Looks Like An Ugly Old Man?

Posted in: , , ,

OK, he didn't exactly put it that way. Prince Harry only said his nephew Prince George looks like a young Winston Churchill. It was during a radio interview that Harry was asked about his nephew and he responded;

'He's growing up, he is walking and he has big, chubby cheeks. He looks like a young Winston Churchill'.

Put like that, his comments are not so bad. Still, Winston Churchill was never known to be good looking. I can't help but think that George's mum Kate Middleton might not be so happy about the comparison. Doesn't every mom think their baby is the cutest?

10 Unusual Real Life Marriage Proposals Around The World

Posted in: , ,

In times when the very institution of marriage is under threat, every proposal has a special meaning. It is a testimony to the feeling that there is something stronger than a live-in relationship or a civil partnership that can bring a couple closer. No wonder then that men – and sometimes women too – are willing to go to extraordinary lengths to propose marriage to their beloved.

Here are 10 unusual real life marriage proposals that are sure to serve as inspirations if you are planning to pop the question yourself.

Lip-dub your love
What more romantic way to propose than to lip-sync to the words of a popular pop song? This is exactly what Isaac of Portland Oregon, did as he roped in his family and friends to propose marriage to his girlfriend Amy. One morning in May 2012 Isaac told Amy to meet him at his parent's house. When she arrived he had stationed his brother to sit her on the back of a Honda CRV with some headphones on. And then to the sound of Bruno Mars' 'Marry You', Amy was then serenaded by Isaac as well as his friends and family as her car moved slowly along the street.

Beyonce Lets Her Booty Hang Out During Concert - Or Are They Butt Pads?

Posted in: , ,

Beyonce wore a very racy outfit during the first night of the On The Run concert with Jay-Z in Miami. The bodysuit outfit had the butt cut out and her dancers also wore the same thing.

Now those who are more familiar with Beyonce's booty say she was wearing butt pads and that is not her backside. For me, I have no idea, though I wonder why she didn't just go pantless?

My favorite part of the show are the clips from her wedding, pregnancy, and Baby Blue. [Watch here]

Do you think those are butt pads or the real bootylicious Beyonce? See another picture below...

Kim Kardashian has just revealed the horrible details of how she and baby North West were verbally attacked by a racist passenger in an airplane.

I thought one could escape such things in the first class section. But no.

Kim had written before on her blog [here] that she worried about Nori being subjected to racism, and it seems her fears have come true. Kim was travelling with her mom Kris Jenner and baby Nori, recounted the terrible incident to Khloe, explaining how she was woken by the woman's screaming;

“Mom had the baby, I fell asleep, I woke up to this woman screaming, ‘Kanye West’s baby!’ The woman is screaming at my child ... I jump up.” Kim said in a just-released E! News preview.

Posted in: , , ,

The BET Awards is holding in LA, home of the stars of the US Entertainment industry. So the memo for the ladies tonight seems to be "show some skin".

From cut-outs, sheer fabrics, high slits, short shorts, mini skirts, and plunging necklines, the ladies at the BET Awards Red Carpet let it all hang out.

Ashanti leads the pack in the beautiful white gown that shows off her deep cleavage, and has a knee-high slit.

Zendaya Is No Longer Involved in The Aaliyah Lifetime Movie

Posted in: , , ,

17-year-old Zendaya has backed out of her starring role in the Lifetime movie about late R&B singer Aaliyah, and is "no longer involved" in the project", a rep for the actress has confirmed today. The role may be recast or Lifetime may drop the entire movie.

The news of her departure comes less than two weeks after it was first announced that Zendaya would play the role of Aaliyah in the Lifetime biopic, tentatively titled "Aaliyah: Princess of R&B."

Zendaya had tried to push back to those who felt she should not play the singer, saying she was "black enough" since she had a African American dad. I guess those critics won.

Production was scheduled to begin this summer, and the network hoped for a fall release. But complications, and a new search for the lead, might warrant a push-back for the film.

Maimuna Abdullahi was sold into marriage by her parents for £120 and abused by her new husband, who locked her away and forced hard labour on her.

When she ran home she was beaten, first by her father, then her husband, and was summarily divorced by her husband for daring to flee – and she is still just 14 years old.

She is one of thousands in Nigeria with similar stories – and, shockingly, her husband blames his beaten former bride for her ordeal, saying she was disobedient and over-educated.

Maimuna’s former husband, Mahammadu Saidu, blames her few years of school for her disobedience. A handsome man of 28 who is obviously proud of his ankle-high boots, he does not deny beating his wife.

Adokiye Offering Her Virginity In Place Of Girls Kidnapped By Boko Haram - What Kind of Joke?

Posted in: , , , ,

I shook my head when it was reported that Adokiye Kyrian, a singer, had offered up her virginity if the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram would release the 200+ school girls kidnapped from Chibok back in April. When the news went viral on social media and began to get on foreign magazine, I was like WTH? Adokiye had told Vanguard’s Showtime;

“This is 11 p.m. in the night and do you know what I am thinking about? Those little girls, where they are and what could be happening to them. It is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange. They are between 12 and 15 year old girls for Christ sake. I am older and more experienced. Even if 10 to 12 men have to take me every night, I don’t care. Just release these girls and let them go back to their parents.”

10 Signs Your Boyfriend is Not Ready To Propose Marriage To You

Posted in: , , ,

One of the biggest dating questions which haunt women is whether her boyfriend is ready to commit. She may be sticking around with him for almost a couple of years now, hoping that he will make up his mind and still waiting for the elusive engagement ring.

If you don’t want to waste time waiting for a man who's not ready, learn to pick up ten signs which tell you that he’s not going to propose marriage in a hurry.

He never discusses marriage: This is perhaps the first hint that should start ringing warning bells in your mind. Your boyfriend cannot be caught dead talking about marriage as an institution or even commenting on commercials for wedding products and services. He won’t mention it even if his own brother is getting married and he is going to be the best man. His aversion to the M-word should be indication enough that marriage does not figure anywhere in his near future.

President Goodluck Jonathan Writes on Government Efforts to Find Missing Chibok Girls

Posted in: ,

As if in answer to my question on the deteriorating security situation in Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan has written an article for the Washington Post about the Government’s efforts to find the Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram.

I have had to remain quiet about the continuing efforts by Nigeria’s military, police and investigators to find the girls kidnapped in April from the town of Chibok by the terrorist group Boko Haram. I am deeply concerned, however, that my silence as we work to accomplish the task at hand is being misused by partisan critics to suggest inaction or even weakness.

My silence has been necessary to avoid compromising the details of our investigation. But let me state this unequivocally: My government and our security and intelligence services have spared no resources, have not stopped and will not stop until the girls are returned home and the thugs who took them are brought to justice. On my orders, our forces have aggressively sought these killers in the forests of northern Borno state, where they are based. They are fully committed to defending the integrity of their country.
