Celeb Insta Fashion - Genevieve Nnaji Celebrates 4th of July With Friends

Posted in: , ,

Genevieve tagged the picture of her in a simple blue thin-strapped floral gown with black cardigan "#aboutthismoment. #4thOfJuly". She's obviously at home with friends and has little or no make up on.

What I want to know is, who is that mystery man in the picture? Genny, do you want to tell us something?

Meanwhile, her picture is causing some controversy among her fans, some of whom don't think Nigerians should be marking the US Independence day when they don't live in America. Others came to her defense, saying there's nothing wrong with it.

What do you think?

Joan Rivers Says President Obama is Gay, And Michelle Obama a Transgender

Posted in: , ,

I understand about freedom of speech and all that but sometimes lines are crossed, and I think this is one of those times. Either Joan Rivers pleads senility on account of her age or she may be liable for libel!

The TV host of Fashion Police was in New York recently for a bookstore appearance, and was asked some questions about when she had officiated an impromptu gay wedding between two of her fans. The reporter then asked her if she thought the US would ever see a gay president.

Joan Rivers replied: "We already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.”

As she started walking away, 81 year old Rivers added: “You know Michelle is a tranny.”

When asked to confirm what she said, Joan Rivers responded: “A transgender. We all know.”

Nicki Minaj Steps Out on a Bad Hair Day After Rumors of Beef With Iggy Azalea

Posted in: ,

Nicki Minaj was photographed on her way to rehearsal yesterday, and she was looking fairly disheveled and not like her usual fashionable self. The award-winning rapper's hair was a mess and she was wearing old sweats and sneakers and with very little to no make up on.

This is coming just days after Nicki Minaj gave an acceptance speech at the BET Awards on Sunday, that appeared to throw shade at other female rappers, especially Iggy Azalea, an upcoming rapper who was also nominated for the same award.

Nicki said in her speech that when "you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it." Some say this is a pointed dig at Iggy Azalea who's been rumored to work with ghostwriters and who some say is on her way to taking Nicki Minaj's crown as the best female MC.

Dear Little One,

As I write this, I’m sitting in the makeup aisle of our local Target store. A friend recently texted me from a different makeup aisle and told me it felt like one of the most oppressive places in the world. I wanted to find out what he meant.

And now that I’m sitting here, I’m beginning to agree with him. Words have power, and the words on display in this aisle have a deep power. Words and phrases like:

What is Ebola and Why is it So Deadly? Should You Be Worried? What Should You Do?

Posted in: ,

In March, an outbreak of Ebola began with a just a handful of cases in Guinea. As a public health afficionado if not practicioner, I've had my eyes on the reports of the outbreak, but recently Atala has been asking me what I know about the virus and he is becoming worried. So what is Ebola?

The Ebola virus causes viral hemorrhagic fever, and symptons can resemble the flu. The virus is named after the Ebola River in the DRCongo (formerly Zaire), where one of the first outbreaks occurred in 1976. Of Ebola's five sub-types, the Zaire strain is considered the most deadly.

The WHO has said preliminary tests on the Ebola virus in those cases in Guinea in March suggest the outbreak there is the Zaire strain, although that has not been confirmed.

However, as of June 30, at least 759 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia have been infected by Ebola since its symptoms were first observed four months ago. 467 of them have died. That's a 61.5 percent mortality rate.
