Beyonce Holds Champagne Glass To Disprove Pregnancy Rumors?

Posted in: ,

For a long while now as their On the Run Tour wound to a close in the US and moved to Europe, rumors had spread that Beyonce was pregnant with her second child. On the last night in Paris, Jay Z stirred up those speculations after he changed his lyrics to mention a new baby in a song.

Now that the tour is over, it seems the couple want to put the talk to rest. Yesterday pictures of Beyonce made sure she was photographed holding a full champagne glass to celebrate the end of the massively successful tour..

The question remains, is she just holding it in solidarity with those celebrating the toast or did she drink the wine? LOL...

I'm beginning to agree with a friend who think this couple deliberately manipulate the press for their own ends. If that is so, it works for me too :)

#MakeitStop - Lupita And Sesame Street's Elmo Talk About Loving The Skin You're In

Posted in: , ,

Lupita Nyong'o is back in the news again on the issue of her dark skin as she visits Sesame Street and chats with Elmo about the largest organ in the body. Lupita is always gorgeous and her skin is amazing, but I wonder how she feels about being made the unofficial ambassador of black/brown skinned people :)

And I can't help thinking of children who are born or have developed skin conditions that require treatment, how will they feel about all this beautiful skin love? Sometimes it's better to just stick to facts, I think.

Check out the video below...Youtube description;

Elmo is with his good friend, Lupita. They are talking about all the great things about their skin. For example, Elmo's skin just happens to be very ticklish. Lupita's skin happens to be a beautiful brown color. Skin can come in all different shades and colors. Isn't skin just the best? However, ticklish or smooth or black or brown or white or tan, be sure to love the skin you are in. 

Semi-Nude Fashion Show At Church Sanctuary In New York - Is This Right?

Posted in: , ,

This picture of gospel singer, Onlyone Harmony, holding a mic at the Riverside Church in New York appeared on my Facebook timeline with the following question: "is this outfit appropriate for her to be singing in the church?"

A little research showed that Ms. Onlyone Harmony was part of a fashion show that involed a number of people, both men and women, wearing different types of revealing costumes.

According to Zimbio, this is "the Adrian Alicea fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 runway at Riverside Church on September 10, 2014 in New York City."

Still, many Facebook comments are not pacified and wondered why would the church allow it venue to be used in this way, as it shows lack of respect for the church. They also wonder if it is appropriate for a gospel singer to be dressed so even if it is for a fashion show.

What do you think? See more pictures and some of the comments below...

Iggy Azalea Signed Away Rights To Sex Tape Says Ex-Boyfriend

Posted in: , , ,

Ladies be careful when signing anything to do with your body, talent, etc, and please be extra careful when the person making you sign any document or contract is your romantic partner. Go through the document - no matter how long - with a fine tooth comb, and read the fine print carefully. If possible, have a lawyer there!

Iggy Azalea's former boyfriend and manager, Hefe Wine, has been looking for a paying outlet for their sex tape, read here, and is now claiming he would be within his rights to sell that tape. This he says is because she had signed her rights away to him, giving him legal authority to market the tape.

Not the sex tape specifically, but he said Iggy signed a lengthy agreement with him in 2009 which gives him exclusive rights to 'manufacture, sell, distribute and advertise 'any' recording embodying visual images of her.

This was back in 2009, when she was just 18 years old and desperate for her talent to get discovered. Probably thought her wonderful boyfriend had the best intentions for her. Poor girl!

On Women Who Say It is Harder to Find a Good Man in Nigeria - Ali Baba

Posted in: , , ,

“I have a serious matter at hand that I want to share. In fact, I should have shared this long ago, but the primary message from a friend that prompted the matter, was lost in between the series of inbox messages from those strange girls that are looking for romantic friendships on Facebook.

In a nutshell, a lady friend sent me an inbox message on how it’s harder to find a good man in Nigeria. And that the men who are “manageable” (her words, not mine) are so scarce and if you ever get them they are either married to a lady that does not deserve them or just repenting from a bad marriage from one of such women. Or even just lost faith in the whole marriage thing.

I later ran into her at a club. After the usual introductions that have become common place with these social media network of friends… (You are my friend on Twitter, Facebook, Tango, INSTAGRAM… That kind of thing)…. I chatted with her a bit and found out from what she told me, that, many women are now settling for anything in between MR Right, MR Not just ok and MR Nearly right.

Why The Marriages Of Top Nigerian Pastors Fail By Praise Fowowe

Posted in: , , ,

Praise Fowowe, self confessed sex addict turned relationship and sex counselor, wrote this thought provoking article that gives reasons why the marriages of some top pastors, like Pastor Chris Oyakhilome above, have ended in divorce.

1. A man of God is not God, he is a man: Unfortunately, we treat our men of God as if they are spirits who don't live in human body. What do we expect when we saddle them with our numerous issues. Unfortunately, many are not wise to say no to church members whose lives will continue if they drop dead.

Church members have academic, financial, and even marital problems, they go to the pastor as if the man is built to solve every problem and in our quest to prove that we are superstars, we also fail to embrace the use of professionals who are trained in these things because of our hidden fear of respect.

What stops a man of God who knows his marriage is in danger to take a back seat and allow a church member whose marriage is a model take a message on a Sunday that marriage is meant to be discussed? You are not built to solve every problem.

Usher Talks About Marrying Again And Being A Wedding Singer

Posted in: , ,

Usher has been dating his manager and Def Jam label executive Grace Miguel, 47, since after his divorce from Tameka Raymond in 2009 and it looks like the 35 year old singer is thinking about settling down again.

Some weeks ago, Usher had mentioned in an interview that he hoped his ex-wife would stop using his last name if he ever married again.

Now, Usher admits he's getting closer to tying the knot again. In an interview on Extra with Angie Martinez Usher said;

“I’ve been even more excited about the idea of it. It could be the fact that I’ve spent the last year at everybody’s damn wedding, like I’ve become damn near the wedding singer, know what I mean?”

He sure loves his older women. Check out another picture of the cute couple below...

Posted in: ,

Yesterday, we told you about Daniele Watts, an African American actress and her white boyfriend who were arrested for public sex [here]. Danielle has now shared her story saying the officers did not arrest, but handcuffed her. She insists they were clearly racist because she was only showing affection, and they were fully clothed.

Daniele and Brian James, who did not mention that they were having sex, shared their story on Facebook. They said they were just having a nice time when policemen approached them and asked to see their ID cards.

Daniele said she protested because she knew she had done nothing wrong, and that was when they handcuffed her and put her in their squad car. Her boyfriend believes they thought she was a prostitute.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Suspends Pastor For Discussing His Divorce, Calls It Blasphemy?

Posted in: , ,

Blasphemy is supposed to mean speaking out against God, now Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, founder of Christ Embassy, has given it a new meaning.

The pastor who is embroiled in a divorce drama with his estranged wife suspended one of the church pastors in Lagos, Michelle Okojie, for her “subversive activities” - read, discussing the divorce with church members and not being supportive of the sainted pastor Chris.

Citing Bible passages from Romans 16:17-20 and Titus 3:10 wherein Christians were told to “watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles,” the church warned every member of the congregation to stay away from Ms. Okojie.

So from being beloved, a Pastor has been cast into outer darkness from the church. Na wa o... see her pictures during happier days as part of the church below...
