Beyonce Breaks Grammys Record For Female Artiste With Most Nominations

Posted in: ,

With the list of nominations for the 2015 Grammys announced so far, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has scored a win even without winning any of the categories she was nominated for including Best Urban, Best R&B performance and more.

The good news is that all those nominations mean she now has the most Grammy nominations of any female artiste ever. She had previously been tied with country singer Dolly Parton at 46 nominations each, but this new one put her over the edge.

Psy's Gangnam Style Video Breaks YouTube Counter After 2 Billion Views Record

Posted in: , ,

The hit music video by South Korean singer, PSY, for his song, Gangnam Style, was the first music video on YouTube to pass the 1 Billion views mark. And now the video has exceeded and broken YouTube's view counter, after receiving more than 2 Billion views.

This has led YouTube to upgrade its counter to prevent this from happening even in the farthest future. They did not just upgrade the counter to the current world population of about 7 - 8 Billion. The maximum view limit has been increased to 9,223,372,036,854,775,808, or more than nine quintillion.

Meet Larue Drummond - The Woman With The 14-Inch Long Nails

Posted in: , ,

Larue Drummond, 54-year-old mother of four, used to be a chronic nail biter as a child, biting her nails to her cuticles until they bled. But according to Larue all that changed when she met a woman at the super market with long nails, who told her, 'when you look after your nails, they will look after you.'

She stopped biting her nails and began to grow them long. Eight years ago, the big fan of nail art decided to stop cutting her nails entirely and has spent not less than $10,000 since then to maintain them.

Some people are very curious about how Ms Drummond manages everyday tasks with her 14-inch talon and she insists she cooks and does other everyday tasks easily. She said:

‘People stop me wherever I go and ask about my nails. I'm always happy to talk about them.
‘The most frequently asked question is how do I go to the bathroom. I tell them, “the same way as you do. If you know of another way, let me know.”’

Breaking Records - Redbull Stratos and Felix Baumgartner

Posted in: , , , , ,

I'll be lying if I say I'm not excited about the forthcoming jump from the edge of space being sponsored by Red Bull. It is still in my bucket list to go skydiving at least once, but this is extreme! It's been all over the news here and each time I'm like, wow, just wow.
