Photos: This Couple Dressed Up As Shrek & Princess Fiona For Their Wedding

Green with envy? A couple dressed as Shrek and Princess Fiona for their wedding in Dudley, West Midlands
 
While most brides dream of throwing a white wedding which will make other women green with envy,  this 44 years old bride painted herself and her husband-to-be green for their fairy-tale wedding based on the film Shrek.
 
Amanda, 44, and Nathan Gibbs, 39, wedded today after eight years together.
They had lost a number of friends to cancer, so the couple decided to wed dressed as Shrek and Fiona and use the day to raise money for charity.

Instead of wedding gifts, the couple asked their guests to donate money to Cancer Research.
Guests also came dressed up for the themed celebrations - dressing up as the Gingerbread Man, Mickey Mouse and Jack Sparrow from Pirates Of The Caribbean.

Here's Why A Young Man Like Me Is Bald - Ik Ogbonna

Model and Nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna, talked about his style, bald head and homosexuality with Ademola Olonilua of Punch in a new interview.
Excerpts:

What is your fashion weakness?

My fashion weakness is the fact that I could be regarded as metro sexual in looks especially because I am not confident in wearing anything that’s not fitted. I feel lost in clothes that are not cut to fit my body. Apart from that I don’t think I have any weakness.
I am a 6 feet tall, bald headed man sometimes the kind of shorts I would love to rock won’t go well with my height and sometimes I wish to play with my hair but I am bald. Finally, we all know I have a crush on Genevieve Nnaji so whenever she’s around I lose my guards, just joking.

How come a young man like you is bald? 

Nature, hereditary traits, I am bald thanks to my Dad and I am proud of it. The only challenge I face is how to maintain it.

What is that fashion item you cannot leave home without?

My face, I always have to carry it whereever I go. I think it should be my perfume. A man must always smell good.

It is common knowledge that homosexuality thrives in the modelling world worldwide, have you ever had such encounter?

It thrives in every sphere of our society - politics, modelling, acting, music, soccer, education. The truth is it can’t be restricted to one institution.
As stated earlier, my metro sexual look has put me in a zone where I am approached by both sexes but I am straight and I do not compromise.


'Chidinma Ekhile Wept Profusely Over Her Alleged SxTape News - Rapper Illbliss

Nigerian rapper Tobechukwu  Melvin Ejiofor aka Illbliss in a chat with HipTV revealed that Chidinma's alleged sex tape scandal which went viral weeks back devastated the singer, adding that she cried profusely.
Illbliss recounted how he and his team rallied round the Kedike hit singer and assured her the scandal would be strategically handled. He and Clarence Peter spearhead Capital Hill Music, which is home to Chidinma, Phyno and Da Suspect.
Illbliss said:
‘I got an e-mail from a blogger one morning saying that ‘your artiste Chidinma has a sex tape out, get in touch with us’ and I called her that morning and told her (Chidinma).
All she did was cry her eyes out, saying ‘I’m only a small girl; I’ve not wronged anybody, why will anyone do this to me?’
‘…I told her that we will speak when we want to and it will not be to defend the sex tape issue but to communicate her success. And indeed it worked!'

Court Rules That 9/11 Families Can Now Sue Saudi Arabia For Death Of Their Loved Ones

Families of the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks are celebrating a federal court's ruling that allows relatives of people who died in the 9/11 terror attacks to sue Saudi Arabia.

Most of the hijackers who attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001 were from Saudi Arabia, and the complaint states that much of the funding for the al-Qaeda terrorists came from Saudi Arabia.
An attempt to sue Saudi Arabia in 2002 was blocked by a federal court ruling that said the kingdom had sovereign immunity.
That ruling was reversed Thursday by a three-judge federal panel.

"I'm ecstatic.... For 12 years we've been fighting to expose the people who financed those bastards," said William Doyle, the father of Joseph Doyle, 25, a Cantor-Fitzgerald employee who was killed in the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
"Christmas has come early to the 9/11 families. We're going to have our day in court," he told ABCNews.com.

The ruling struck down an earlier decision that found Saudi Arabia immune from lawsuits. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it's in the "interests of justice" to allow them to proceed.

Families who lost loved ones in the Sept. 11 attacks and insurers who lost billions of dollars covering damaged businesses have alleged Saudi Arabia bankrolled al-Qaeda, knowing the money would be used for terrorism.
The lawsuit, filed a decade ago by the Philadelphia firm Cozen O'Connor, accuses the Saudi government and members of the royal family of serving on charities that financed al-Qaeda operations.

A Reader Needs Your Advice Urgently, Guys



Well I know this might not be as serious to some people as it is to me.
I am a 20year old fair skinned girl (very fair), I am beautiful, no doubt coz I do own a mirror but my self esteem is so low it's almost vanishing.

 Growing up in the north was ok, nothing special ever happened, no place to ever go to until I moved to Lagos and I met a whole new Nigeria.
 Let me go straight to the point. I have dark spots from sunfly and mosquito bites and I have tried
