Posted in: , ,

36-year old Chris, met Norma now 68, when he was just 18 at a holiday camp and proposed to her shortly after he turned 21. Interestingly, they have been living happily together as a couple in Brighton for 15 years now.

Many have wondered how they do it when people of almost the same age can't even cope with each other. On how they met, Chris recalls;

"I saw her one night and I was going to ask if she wanted a drink with me but I lost my bottle. "Another night I offered her a piggy back and it went from there."

South African President Announce 67 SA Citizens Dead in Collapsed Synagogue Church Building

Posted in: , , , , ,

South African president, Jacob Zuma has announced that 67 SA citizens perished when a Synagogue church building collapsed last week. The building approval for the collapsed SCOAN structure is still missing, and NEMA has said that only about 50 bodies have been recovered so far.

The guest house is under the management of TB Joshua and the Synagogue Church and had collapsed on September 12th while construction was going on to raise it from 3 stories to 5 without approval from the state or local government.

The South Africans who were lodged there were in Nigeria to seek spiritual help from TB Joshua, and while some have been pulled alive from the rubble, it is clear now that more lives than we thought were lost.

Below is the full statement by South African president, Jacob Zuma.

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!
