Sinead O’Connor pulls out her appearance on The Late Late Show.

Sinead O’Connor has openly written about her nonexistent intimate life in a bizarre online blog.

 

In a blog post entitled, “Is Sinead About To H**p Her Truck?”, Sinead O’Connor, 44, bemoans her lack of s** life, writing:

“I am in the peak of my se***l prime and way too lovely to be living like a nun. and it’s VERY depressing.”

Sinead O’Connor also claimed the man who runs her site would urge her to “take a cold shower” before revealing intimate details, but “I will of course ignore him.”

The outrageous title of her blog post was taken from a news article Sinead O’Connor said she read about a woman who “married and regularly h***s her truck.”

The Irish star wrote: “I’m beginning to understand her head space”- claiming she is so “desperate for s**”.

Then, Sinead O’Connor continued: “My s**t-uation se***lly/affectionately speaking is so dire that inanimate objects are starting to look good as are inappropriate and/or unavailable men and/or inappropriate and/or unavailable fruits and vegetables.”

“Needless to say what I do for a living makes it hard for me to find men that only want me cuz they like my (legendary) a**e.”

The Irish singer then joked about joining a dating service, requesting no-one younger than 44, no one named Brian or Nigel and stating they “Must be blind enough to think I’m gorgeous.”

The rambling revelations are particularly unusual as Sinead O’Connor came out as a lesbian in 2000, but is writing about her search for a man.

Before she signed off, Sinead O’Connor wrote: “I must end now as I have a hot date with a banana.”

Four days later, Sinead blogged again that she had found a man, saying: “Search called off for now. Suitable man found.

“Filled by an extremely sweet, kind, very respectful, considerate but absolutely FILTHY minded, un-inhibited RUDE s** maniac named John. and no.. I don’t mean John Waters.”

John Waters is her ex-partner and father to her daughter Brigidine.

However she then discovered said John had a pregnant girlfriend and has since reopened the campaign.

Sinead O’Connor has been married three times and has four children.

Beyoncé didn’t let her pregnancy prevent her from bringing the house down with an energetic performance.

The singer cheered on her husband Jay-Z, who performed new single Otis with Kanye West, before taking to the stage herself.

 

Beyoncé took the stage in a purple glittery blazer and black trousers by Dolce & Gabbana and said:

“I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me.”

After she performed Love On Top, which attracted a standing ovation from the audience, Beyoncé ripped open her jacket and proudly rubbed her baby bump.

In the next moment, cameras moved on the audience, where Jay-Z was beaming, as his friend Kanye West jumped up and down, smacking the future father on the back and shaking him.

 

Beyoncé performed two weeks ago at the Roseland Ballroom in New York and covered up her stomach with a special costume that draped lightly across her protruding bump.

“Now I’m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage,” she said.

“I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.”

Beyoncé, who married rapper Jay-Z in 2008, said during an interview she gave two months ago:

“I always said I was going to have a baby at 30. I’m 29 now.”

“But I also said I was going to retire at 30. So I don’t know,’ she said, adding: “I am not retiring, I tell you.”

And she continued: “Only God knows, only God knows.”

MTV Video Music Awards 2011: Adele, biggest winner

 

The 28th Annual MTV Video Music Awards (VMA 2011), held in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre on Sunday August 28, will pay tribute to Amy Winehouse, who died one month ago.

 

Amy Winehouse never appeared on the MTV Video Music Awards during her short but celebrated career, but it was announced as news of a tribute to Amy on this Sunday at MTV VMA 2011.

Amy Winehouse has hit another milestone following her tragic death as second album, Back to Black, has become the best-selling album of the 21st century in UK.

Britain’s Official Chart Company announced the further success of her Grammy-award winning album, which includes the singles “Rehab” and “Love Is a Losing Game”, and said it had overtaken James Blunt’s 2005 debut album, “Back to Bedlam”, to claim the crown.

Tony Bennett, who spent time recording with Amy in March this year, will lead the tribute to Amy Winehouse and introduce never-seen-before footage of their time together at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios.

Amy Winehouse last known recording session was with the 85-year-old crooner. The duo recorded Body and Soul for Bennett’s upcoming album, Duets II, which is released on September 20.

There are also rumors that Amy Winehouse’s parents might attend the show, but MTV’s officials could not confirm their appearance.

Singer Tony Bennett said: “It was a thrill to record with Amy Winehouse.”

 “And when you listen to the recording of Body and Soul, it is a testament to her artistic genius and her brilliance as one of the most honest musicians I have ever known.”

The tribute to Amy Winehouse at VMA 2011 will likely be the rare moment of reverence in a show that is calculated to be as irreverent as possible.

This year, the current queen of sexy daffiness, Katy Perry, is poised to be the belle of MTV’s annual ball: She’s up for a leading 10 moonman trophies, including video of the year for her inspirational “Firework”.

 

Another star set to be celebrated at VMA 2011 is pop star, Britney Spears.

At the age of 29, it is rather unusual for the singer to be presented with a special tribute award, but her fellow pop stars obviously disagree.

Madonna, Britney Spears’ friend will present the award, as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Janet Jackson, will combine their talents to perform a spectacular musical tribute.

Britney Spears will also take to the stage herself to perform recent hits, “Hold It Against Me” and “I Wanna Go”.

It has been reported that the tribute, which is normally given to artists of an older age and longer career, has been arranged to ensure that Britney actually turns up to the event.

An insider speaking to RadarOnline.com said: “Britney’s young to receive an award like this, but the producers know that it will force Britney to come to the show.”

Other talent that has been added to the star-studded line up include Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown, whose star continues to brighten two years after it was tarnished by his attack on Rihanna, and soulful singer, Adele.

Adele is also a top nominee, being the year’s best-selling artist so far with her album “21”. She is nominated for seven awards for “Rolling in the Deep”.

Kanye West also has seven nominations. He is not expected to perform at the VMA 2011.

VMA 2011 show is being held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and broadcast live on MTV from 9 to 11 p.m.

MTV President Stephen Friedman said some VMA 2011 performers from the East Coast arrived in Los Angeles early to avoid the storm and resulting airport disruptions. But he was hopeful viewer disruption would be minimal.

“Our hope is our audience is cuddled up with their family and friends and don’t want to be outside and want to watch the best night in music,” he said.

San Francisco Fashion Week 2011: when beauty meets technology.

 

Australian department store Myer hosted Big is Beautiful fashion launch during Sydney’s Fashion Festival 2011 on Tuesday, hiring plus-size girls to model outfits by various labels.[googlead tip=”vertical_mediu” aliniat=”dreapta”]

 

Sydney Fashion Festival, known as Mercedes-Benz Sydney Fashion Festival (MBFF Sydney), is Sydney’s premier fashion and lifestyle event and is a schedule of fashion events showcasing the contemporary Spring Summer Collections of Australia’s leading designer brands and retailers as these collections land in store.

 

Sydney’s Fashion Festival 2011 official schedule includes the collection shows and Festival Hub activities, which all take place at the Sydney Town Hall from August 23 to August 27.

 

Myer’s “Big is Beautiful” show during Sydney’s Fashion Festival 2011 was presented on Tuesday and used plus-size girls to model outfits by various labels, as the Australian department store claimed in a statement:

“Myer is proud to support Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival, Sydney and invites you to join us for our Big Is Beautiful Fashion Launch. The show will feature the very latest trends in plus size fashion for sizes 16 to 24. It’s fashion designed for real women with a fuller figure. For Spring Summer 2011 Myer is excited to be re-launching Big Is Beautiful and introducing Leona + by Leona Edmiston and both brands will feature in the show. This is an event not to be missed!”

Robyn Lawley – the first ever plus-size model to feature in Vogue Australia – opened the Meyr’s show at Sydney Fashion Festival 2011 in a stunning black assymetric dress.

But while some girls looked healthy modelling sizes 16 to 24, others appeared somewhat overweight.

Some of the media reports claimed that Myer made a big mistake by adopting the slogan “Big is Beautiful” which is encouraging women to remain unhealthy. This could be classed as almost as harmful as promoting the controversial ‘size zero.’

 

The Myer’s fashion launch at Sydney Fashion Festival has sparked an online debate as The Australian journalist Damian Woolbough branded the choice of models “irresponsible.”

[googlead tip=”patrat_mare”]The journalist wrote:

“There is a place for women of all sizes in the fashion media, as seen by the positive response to a plus-size shoot with Lawley in this month’s Vogue Australia, but obese models send just as irresponsible a message about the need for healthy eating and exercise as models with protruding clavicles and ribcages.”

However, the journalist’s post received a series of comments from readers defending Myer’s move.

Tam Fry, from the National Obesity Forum, warned the dangers of seeing skinny models on the runway far outweigh the message that plus-sized girls send, saying:

“Is it ok to be overweight? No.

But if you are big and big boned, people come in all shapes and sizes, it would be monstrously wrong to say the models are just overweight.

If they are running a show which has big girls modelling for big girls, then that would be totally appropriate.

Sending skinny girls down the runway does more damage than you might expect this show to be doing.

If the show Big is Beautiful is for ladies that are size 18 because that is their natural size then I see no problem.”

On the other hand, it seems not everyone bought the idea that big is beautiful.[googlead tip=”lista_medie” aliniat=”stanga”]

Only 64 tickets have been sold for Myer’s show, out of the 500 available.

Edwina McCann, Harper’s Bazaar editor told the Sydney Morning Herald:

“I don’t think the consumer is as obsessed with plus-size as the media is.

I think the consumer is quite happy to accept the fact that a model, like an Olympic swimmer, is usually an exceptional beauty and doesn’t look like the rest of us.”

Gavin DeGraw hospitalized beaten by criminals and hit by car

 

Gavin DeGraw resumed the tour with rockers Maroon 5 and Train on [googlead tip=”vertical_mic” aliniat=”dreapta”]Wednesday, August 24, fifteen days after he was attacked by three men an hit by a car.

On Sunday night (August 7) the singer went out for a drink, then left his friends around four o’clock in the morning. Police said several people assaulted him on the street. They cut his face and broke his nose, then run away. Gavin DeGraw rose up and as he was walking, a cab struck him.

He was admitted at Bellevue Hospital, New York, with concussion, broken nose, black eyes and cuts. Next day the rocker was released from the hospital and wrote on Twitter that he could not clearly remember the incident.

Gavin DeGraw  had to interrupt the summer tour.

Several days later the artist said to VH1: “Instead of checking in from the tour, I’m writing as I recover at home.[…] I can’t wait to get back out on tour and look forward to seeing you on the road sometime soon.”

[googlead tip=”lista_mica” aliniat=”stanga”]On August 23 Gavin DeGraw told People that he was healing fine. He had a swollen face and some fractures in cheekbone, eyes and nose, but two weeks later everything would return to normal, just a mark from stitches on the nose would remain. Almost everything because Gavin said he had a different sensation breathing through his nose and the concussion had caused him memory troubles and dizziness.

“I had a night off, and I met up with some friends at the bar I own with my brother. We had a few drinks. I put my friends in a cab and I walked home because I live pretty close. I remember maybe three guys said something to me and I didn’t appreciate it, and I guess I let them know I didn’t appreciate it. They weren’t exactly on the debate team, so I ended up with a tube down my throat,” Gavin DeGraw said.

He said he had not been drunk, he just had had a few drinks with his friends at the bar he owns[googlead tip=”patrat_mic” aliniat=”dreapta”] with his brother Joey, “The National Underground”, in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Police will analyze the footage of the crossroad (6th Street and First Avenue) where Gavin was beaten and hit by a taxi, but probably it will take a while until the attackers will be found.

Gavin next concerts will take place in Syracuse, Holmdel and Orlando.

In  May  Gavin DeGraw launched “Not Over You” single and another album, “Sweeter”, is scheduled to be released on September this year.

Wednesday’s article claimed Will Smith was left in floods of tears after catching Marc and Jade together in their Hidden Hills mansion in Los Angeles. [googlead tip=”patrat_mare”]

It alleged Will made a surprise visit to the house in early August “under the cover of darkness” and found his wife with Marc.

The report didn’t tell about what he may have witnessed, saying a couple insider told In Touch:

“Will didn’t indicated exactly what he saw.”

InTouch also claimed Jada moved out of the house the next day – while Will fired several staff accusing them of covering things up.

In Touch alleged things have been a long time coming.

Another source revealed there was a visible sexual tension between Jada and Marc on the set of TNT medical drama, Hawthorne.

When Marc Anthony began playing the on-screen lover of his co-star, workers on set noticed the chemistry between them, In Touch reported.

According to a source:

“On set, everyone noticed the insane chemistry them.”

There were also playful exchanges on Twitter between Jada and Marc, saying how much fun they were having working together.

But it was when Marc Anthony split from J.Lo last month that alarms bells started ringing for Will Smith, according to In Touch.

Will Smith, who has been in New York over recent months filming Men In Black III “couldn’t ignore the timing” with the insider relating: “It was just too coincidental.”

Meanwhile a source close to Will and Jada told gossip website TMZ.com that they have decided to go away with their children on a family holiday before deciding what to do, but the prospect of a split in the near future is “definitely a possibility”.

When Carrie Fisher announced last January the deal with Jenny Craig and weight loss goals, she explained:

 

“I’m pretty fearless, but my scale is frightening. So I would go to the doctor and I would stand not facing it. That’s an adult! I have a child. So that’s something I’d like to not do anymore, be frightened of the scale.”

 

During her Today Show appearance, she told Ann Curry:

“I couldn’t leave the house to go bra shopping. I exhausted the alphabet on bra sizes.” [googlead tip=”lista_medie” aliniat=”stanga”]

 

[googlead tip=”patrat_mediu” aliniat=”stanga”] Carrie Fisher had joked about trying on her iconic gold metal bikini she wore as Princess Lea in Return of the Jedi in 1977.

“I want to get back in it and walk around the house like an idiot.”

“You know, answer the doorbell, [and say], <<What, this old thing? I’m just wearing my home style metal bikini>>.”

“I’ll come out with a line of metal bikinis for women over 40.”

But she said women above the age of 50 should not ever go sleeveless.

“I’m still probably not gonna wear a lot of sleeveless things. I lost 50 pounds. The Jenny Craig food is good….It tastes like you’re cheating!”

While Carrie didn’t say anything about her rejuvenated features, she was certainly forthcoming about her decision to lose weight.

Carrie Fisher, who is now a size 8, told the Today Show:

 

“I couldn’t look in the mirror. I saw pictures of myself where I didn’t look like myself.

I thought I was getting old. It turns out [I] was mostly getting fat.”

 

Now, Carrie Fisher, 54, is feeling more confident than ever, and is even ready to find love again.

“I’m putting myself on the market,” she told America’s People during an interview in the latest magazine’s issue.

 

“I’m ready to date again; this is my announcement.”

 

Carrie Fisher relations include Blues Brothers co-star Dan Aykroyd, singer-songwriter Paul Simon and casting agent Bryan Lourd, with whom she has a 19-year-old daughter, Billie.

At one moment in time, Carrie topped the scales at 180 lbs, she has said in the past.

To achieve her actual body, she reduced her intake to 1,500 calories per day.

Her favourite snacks include Skinny Cow Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream and Kozy Shack rice pudding.

Carrie Fisher also embarked on a fitness regime, doing 40-45 minutes of cardio 5 times a week.

“I’m not in love with the treadmill,” Carrie Fisher said.

“We’re in a truce situation. But I really like elliptical because I can read.”

In 2008, Will Smith spoke with Ellen Degeneres about their marriage, which he implied would last forever.

 

“What I found is divorce just can’t be an option,” he said.

“It’s really that simple. And I think that’s the problem with L.A. – there are so many options. So a huge part of the success for [Jada] and I is that we just removed the other options.”

 

Whether it was cause or effect is uncertain, but that dedication certainly coincided with an active sex life, including a romp on the way to the Oscars in 2010.

Last June, speaking to Uptown Magazine, Jada said:

 

“People think that Will and I don’t spend a lot of time together. Too much time, actually, if you ask me. It’s always nice to have a little time apart. Sometimes you need that.”

I feel like I’m floating. It’s like my friends who are in the know, which are not many, and my family members who know, which isn’t all of them, are lifting me up to get through this,” she said.

Some time later, Chely said coming out “didn’t help my career.” Her albums’ sales were down and beside that an article in Tennessean remarked Chely Wright‘s genre has begun to change to Americana.

” Country music would rather an artist be a drunk, they even encourage and endorse that one. You get good money from Jim Beam to put that emblem on the side of your bus. I was on the Crown Royal tour, and I have to say it was one of my favorite tours. They would rather you were a drug addict than be gay. They will forgive you if you beat your wife, lose your kids to state, get six divorces, make a sex tape, get labeled as a tramp — any and all of it is better than being gay.” Said Chely Wright in an Los Angeles Times’ interview (with Geoff Boucher).

A documentary film about Wright’s admitting she is a lesbian, Wish Me Away, was released in June 2011. The film’s title is one of the tracks on her 2010 album, Lifted Off the Ground. The movie, filmed over three years, premiered at the 35th annual Frameline Film Festival in San Francisco. Wish Me Away (WMA) won two awards: Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary Feature at the Los Angeles Film Festival and the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary at the Frameline 35 Festival in San Francisco.

In 2010 Chely was named one of Out magazine’s annual “100 People of the Year” and Metro Source New York Magazine named Chely Wright as one of the “20 people We Love”.

Lenny Kravitz lived in a trailer for the last two years on the Eleuthera Island, [googlead tip=”patrat_mic” aliniat=”dreapta”]  in Bahamas, where he was inspired to create his new album “Black and White America.”

 

Since he was a child, Lenny Kravitz used to change the house place. Therefore, the musician sold his New York house and lives in recreational vehicles, being ready to move wherever and whenever he wants.

Lenny Kravitz, 47, told Female First about his experience living in trailer on the Eleuthera Island, Bahamas, in the last two years. Eleuthera is Lenny’s mother birthplace and he found there the inspiration to create his new tropical album, “Black and White America.”

 

“I live in a trailer on the beach, low key with a dog, a hammock and a jeep I bought when my first album came out. I wake up at night hearing music, I hear it walking down the road in the trees, so it’s conducive to creativity.”

 

[googlead tip=”lista_medie” aliniat=”stanga”]Lenny Kravitz, who recently sold his New York house, finds Eleuthera as being the place where he feels “the most at home” and admits living in a trailer is more comfortable than in a house.

Lenny Kravitz was inspired for his new tropical album Black and White America while he stayed in a trailer on Bahamas beach.

“It is the place I feel the most at home. I’ve been there on and off since I was five and lived there the last two years.”

 

Currently, Lenny’s trailer is parked on the beach in Bahamas.

Lenny Kravitz has a permanent home in Paris, but he chooses to live in the trailer.

 

Lenny Kravitz- whose father is Jewish – said he grew up feeling good with being mixed race, but was shocked by people’s attitudes when he first launched his music career.

Lenny explained:

“I had a very healthy childhood experience of being bi-racial. But when I first came out in the music industry I was always told I wasn’t black enough or white enough and I didn’t fit a box or category. I found that interesting. “

“But I’m not just one thing, and not many of us are.”

Liam Gallagher, former Oasis front-man is suing brother Noel for what he claims are “lies” over the band split in 2009.

 

[googlead tip=”vertical_mediu” aliniat=”dreapta”] Liam Gallagher, who has re-launched his music career as front-man of Beady Eye, has filed a High Court action against Noel Gallagher’s claim that he pulled out of a 2009 headline performance at V festival due to a “hangover”.

He also has been enraged by Noel’s comments made last month at a press conference – when he was promoting his new solo album – about the band’s split in 2009, which was partly due to an argument over whether Liam could advertise his Pretty Green clothing range in the concert programme.

[googlead tip=”lista_mare” aliniat=”dreapta”]Liam Gallagher demands public apology from his guitarist brother after claimed that he cancelled V festival Oasis performance due to hangover.

 

He took the extraordinary action because he said he wanted Oasis fans and festival-goers “to know the truth”.

In a today statement, Liam Gallagher confirmed his legal action against his brother Noel Gallagher and said he was looking for an apology to put the record straight about the festival cancellation.

 

“I have taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made claiming Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover. That is a lie and I want Oasis fans and others who were at V to know the truth.”

“I was gutted when I couldn’t play the gig because I didn’t want to let the fans down.”

 

Liam Gallagher insisted Noel was aware he had laryngitis, which was diagnosed by a doctor.

 

“But the truth is I had laryngitis, which Noel was made fully aware of that morning, diagnosed by a doctor.

Noel also falsely stated the demise of Oasis followed a massive row in which he claimed I demanded to advertise my clothing range Pretty Green in the Oasis tour programme.

The truth is there was no such discussion or row between us.

I am used to being called all sorts of things by Noel and I have in the past said things about him. But what Noel has alleged this time went way beyond rock-and-roll banter and questioned my professionalism.

I tried to resolve this amicably but have been left with no choice but legal action. All I want is an apology.”

 

Noel Gallagher has yet to respond to the suit, although he has expressed regret over Oasis’ split in a recent interview with Absolute Radio.

 

“We could maybe have [just] all gone off and done other things for a few years,” he said.

“It was a hasty decision … If I had my time again I’d have thought about it a bit more and gone back, done the gig, done the next, there was only two gigs left on the tour.”

“If we had simply agreed to a hiatus, Oasis could have returned to the project in a renewed, relaxed – and even nostalgic – way.”

“In my own head the 2015, 20-year anniversary of (What’s the Story) Morning Glory is looming,” he said.

“We could have maybe come back, made a new album and played that album in its entirety and gone and been the greatest thing ever, but there you go.”

 

[googlead tip=”vertical_mare” aliniat=”stangaa”] Noel Gallagher broke up with Oasis following a row moments before a festival in Paris in August 2009.

Noel – who also wrote most of the group’s hits – said the Gallaghers’ rocky relationship worsened after Liam demanded free plugs for his clothes brand in the tour programme, which Noel opposed.

He also said Liam pulled out of an appearance at the V Festival in Chelmsford in 2009. At the time it had been explained as a bout of laryngitis, but Noel said the reason for the no-show was his brother’s “hangover”.

The two brothers have had a long-running public spat ever since they found fame in the mid-1990s.

Cancellation of a major festival appearance due to a hangover rather than a medical condition could potentially lead to contractual issues with the organizers.

The possibility of Oasis reunion now looks exceedingly remote.

Notting Hill Carnival 2011: the Europe’s biggest street show.

 

[googlead tip=”vertical_mare” aliniat=”stanga”] The Notting Hill Carnival 2011 will go ahead, but will be closed early each night because of the heightened fears of trouble after last week’s London riots.

 

The carnival’s organizers said Thursday the event would end in daylight in an effort to minimize the risk of disturbances.

Notting Hill Carnival 2011 organizing committee said in a statement it would continue “to assess the severity of the impact the riots may potentially have on Notting Hill carnival 2011 and to discuss measures that will be put in place to avoid any untoward incidents”.

Police will be out in force at the two-day event over the August bank holiday weekend. It is a showcase for African-Caribbean culture and can attract crowds of one million people.

 

Notting Hill Carnival 2011 organizers have decided the parade of floats will finish by 6:30pm, and the static sound systems by 7:00 pm, earlier than usual.

 

The aim is to finish so that crowds of people have dispersed by the time it gets dark, which is believed by police to be the time when trouble is most likely to occur.

The other reason for the earlier finish is that parents may keep youngsters taking part in the carnival away, fearing an increased chance of trouble.

Notting Hill Carnival 2011 will go ahead despite London riots

Notting Hill Carnival 2011 will go ahead despite London riots

Previously, Scotland Yard had planned to have 5,000 officers on duty during Notting Hill Carnival 2011 but, in the wake of last week’s riots, the number will be more than double.

Because of the widespread nature of the rioting, which saw disorder in 22 out of London’s 32 boroughs, there will also be an increased police presence across the capital.

 

“Notting Hill Carnival is one of London’s most important cultural events and to cancel it would have a negative impact on London’s economy and reputation as a centre for successful major events,” said a spokesman for the organizing committee.

 

“After the recent disturbances in London, concerns about the safety of the event were expressed by residents of Notting Hill, the business community and those involved in producing Carnival bands.”

 

“The Carnival will therefore start at 9am and conclude by 7pm on Sunday 28 and Monday 29 August. Additional police officers and stewards will also be on duty to provide extra cover.”

 

The Met supports the decision to go ahead with the carnival believing that it will be a symbol of the return to normality.

London Metropolitan Police’s acting commissioner, Tim Godwin, testifying before the home affairs committee, said:

 

 “I want it to go ahead.”

 

The number of letters to Kensington and Chelsea council calling for the carnival in west London to be scrapped seems to be roughly the same number as every year.[googlead tip=”lista_mare” aliniat=”dreapta”]

 

The Notting Hill Carnival 2011 bands will take to the roads from around 9am on Sunday 28th August 2011 and the same time on Monday 29th of August 2011. Sunday is Children’s day and Monday is Adults day.

[youtube WzYXuBKyWZc]

The event, which began in 1964 and is now one of the world’s biggest street festivals, has been marred by violence in the past.

In 1976, rioting broke out in Notting Hill at the end of carnival in which 100 police officers and 60 members of the public were injured. In 2000, there were two murders during the carnival.

 

Notting Hill Carnival is London’s most vibrant celebration of diversity, colour and sound.

 

[googlead tip=”patrat_mare”]Held each August Bank Holiday since 1964, Notting Hill Carnival is the largest festival celebration of its kind in Europe. Every year the streets of West London come alive, with the sounds and smells of Europe’s biggest street festival.

At the roots of the Notting Hill Carnival are the Caribbean carnivals of the early 19th century – a particularly strong tradition in Trinidad – which were all about celebrating the abolition of slavery and the slave trade. The very first carnival was an attempt to showcase the steel band musicians who played in the Earls Court of London every Weekend. When the bands paraded through the streets of Notting Hill, they drew black residents out on to the streets, reminding them of the Caribbean homes they had left behind.

Notting Hill Carnival has become an internationally acclaimed event which remains true to its Caribbean roots. Over the last four decades, it’s matured into a melting pot of diverse cultural and musical genres that come together in modern West London streets.

Today it’s Europe’s largest street festival with hundreds of thousands of regular visitors enjoying live Masquerade bands, Soundsystems, street food, dancing and much more too.

Thank you for all of your support during my pregnancy. It means the world to me.”

Jessica Alba gave birth to her second daughter

Jessica spent the week prior the birth promoting “Spy Kids”. She said she has craved watermelon and her daughter has wanted the baby to be a boy, called Sophie. “Spy Kids: All the Time in the World” will be in the theaters on Friday.[googlead tip=”lista_medie” aliniat=”stanga”]

Jessica Alba is known for “Dark Angel” television series. She also played in “Honey”, “Sin City”, “Fantastic Four”, “Into the Blue”, “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” , “Good Luck Chuck”.[googlead tip=”lista_mica” aliniat=”stanga”]

Jessica’s first daughter, Honor Marie, was born in 2008 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. In the same year Jessica Alba married Cash Warren, Michael Warren’s son. She had met Cash while she has been making “Fantastic Four” in 2004.

Several months ago Jessica declared she had used self-hypnosis when she had her first daughter.

“I was freaked my first time going into labour, like, What if I panic? What if I just freak out and am not prepared for it? This just prepares you” she said.

Also she has admitted that her second pregnancy has seemed harder than her first.

“It’s a little harder on the body. My daughter still wants to be picked up and ever since my belly popped she’s really on me.”

About a month ago Jessica Alba confessed she had troubles regaining her figure and she was wondering how Gisele Bundchen has losed the baby weight. Gisele was able to wear a bikini in just several weeks after giving birth.

“I can’t ever get down to the weight I was before I had Honor… My body’s just different. The jeans just sort of zip up differently, and things hang differently. It’s a miracle what happens, but you definitely are different afterward. Unless you’re Gisele,” said Jessica.

 On the other hand, Jessica has found that through pregnancy she had learned another way to view  her own sexuality.

“It wasn’t something I embraced until I had my daughter. I saw how incredible and amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to create a life. There’s a reason why certain areas of the body are desirable because it all leads to reproduction,” Jessica Alba said.

William Zabel, George Soros’ lawyer told the New York Post that the lawsuit is “frivolous and entirely without merit,” and an attempt to extract money from his client.

“This is obviously nothing more than an attempted shakedown targeting a wealthy man,” Michael Vachon, a spokesman for Soros, told the BBC.

 

“Ferreyr has targeted Mr. Soros with a baseless lawsuit.”

Desperate Housewives show brought in huge ratings from the beginning, with an average of more than 20 million viewers at first two seasons. Ratings have slowly declined since its 7th season, which only brought in 1/2 the viewers at about 11 million. Critics have claimed the show “jumped the shark” in its 5th season.

According to Access Hollywood, Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry referring to   the show’s end at the TCA’s Summer Session, said:

“I’ve spoken to over half of [the cast about the end of the show]. It was actually kind of bittersweet and lovely, because the women knew that it was a possibility, but they didn’t know, so there was a touch of shock, but not completely.”

Then, Cherry added,

“I love my cast.” 

Paul Lee referred to the ABC fun drama as “an iconic show” and said

“I just wanted to make sure it had its victory lap.”

 In addition, Marc Cherry said:

“I wanted to go out when the network still saw us as a viable show and a force to contend with. We felt from a creative standpoint that this was the right time. I feel so good about it.”

Talking about the 8th season story line, Cherry highlighted that it will bring things full circle and will be focused on the “roots” of Mary Alice Young.

Mary Alice Young is the woman whose mysterious death was the basis for the first season.

At the end of the session, Cherry said he has “an idea for the last episode” in order to “pay homage” to the multiple cast members who have appeared on the show during the time. Regarding the inclusion of Edie Britt, a character played by Nicollette Sheridan –  who sued him in 2010 for allegedly physically assaulting her while she was on the show – Cherry said,

“I don’t know how I would do that.”
