First Look at Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston for Lifetime Biopic

Posted in: , , ,

As a big fan of Whitney Houston, I confess that I'm truly excited for the Whitney Houston biopic! And with this first look at model and actress Yaya DaCosta as the late musician, I must say that I am very impressed.

Yaya has the look down pat but the question some are asking is whether she will be able to portray the mannerisms of the legendary Whitney? We all have to wait and see...

BTW, did Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina really think she could've got the role? She should be happy at the nod to her mom instead of going off on Angela Basset [see here]. Oh well, you can never please some people.

French Montana Shares Picture of Khloe Kardashians Bum on Social Media

Posted in: , ,

Chris Brown made headlines a couple of times last week when he shared photos of his girlfriend Karrueche Tran's backside on Instagram But I think they were trying to make a point about cellulite. Or maybe it was to show how her butt has grown over the years.

Today, Khloe Kardashian's new boyfriend, French Montana, also showed off her behind, not naked though on his social media. Khloe's famous butt is covered in dark brown bum shorts and it looks like she's lying in bed when he took the picture.

French had only one word to explain the photo #asssscap. Does that mean butt pads?

A 16-year-old Texas girl's photo of when she was drugged and raped became a social media meme #jadapose, and now friends and supporters are asking for #JusticeForJada

"There's no point in hiding. Because of the picture everybody has already seen my face and body. But that's not what I am or who I am."
This is certainly not who she is, she is a brave and strong young lady and we #standwithjada to stop rape and rape culture that thinks that rape is funny.

Somali-British teenage twin sisters, sixteen-year-old Salma and Zahra Halane, who aspired to become doctors, are feared to have relocated to Syria to train with the ISIS terror group. 

It is suspected that their elder brother, who quit school to become a jihadist fighter for  ISIS last year, may have been one of their major inspirations for deciding to join the group.

The girls were reputed to have achieved great academic excellence in school, achieving 28 GCSEs between them last summer. These exam results put them in the top 10 per cent of their year class at Whalley Range High School for Girls in Manchester.

Are You Tired of Waiting for Mr or Mrs Right: Take Action - Tomi Sule

Posted in: , ,

We have heard the saying “It is better to be alone than in bad company”; it is great to be married, but I believe it is better to be single than to be in a marriage where you feel trapped and dead on the inside.
A broken relationship is better than a broken home, so if there are signs of an unhappy marriage already showing in your relationship, please have the courage to walk away.

It is better to let go of the’ good’, so the ‘best’ can come. If you aren’t in a relationship, the good thing is that you can make the most of being single by building and preparing yourself to be a great partner and spouse when you do get hitched…

How do you maximise singlehood? What should you do while ‘waiting’ – or looking for Mr or Mrs Right?
