How come no woman bagged a Lifetime Achievemant Award...hmmm? What do you guys think about this Award and it's winners? Send me your thoughts.

CLEEVAGE DO'S AND DON'TS


Paula Abdul

Paula is a don't. She looks like she just got out of surgery and has Ace bandages wrapped around her to hold her together so that there's minimal scarring! The dress is pulling so tightly that it's not only pushing her bust down and making it unattractive, but it's also giving her that sort of third boob, that underarm boob, which is not necessary.


Jennifer Hudson

She's a 'do' for sure - she's given herself a sexier silhouette by virtue of that halter, giving her a nice long line. It's attractive because she's younger and her breasts are still perky enough. In 10 years she can't wear that halter dress without the Brooklyn Bridge being underneath her!"


Christina Aguilera

There's just too much distance between her bust, so it leans more towards a don't than a do. But I like the way she looks. This dress looks cute on her, but I wish there was a little more cleavage. The real do here would be to use those silicone cups which would've given her a fuller cup and a little more cleavage in the center.


Fergie

Fergie is a 'do' because she has a dress that's perfectly executed for her bust. It's fabulous and beautiful and that neckline is really pretty on her - it doesn't work on everybody. She's got the right sized chest and that's the biggest you can go with that square neck without looking like Paula Abdul."


LeAnn Rimes

It's not a 'do' and it's not a 'don't' - it's just okay, but it could've been better. She's very safe. I would've encouraged her to use those self-adhesive cookies to give her a fuller bust. They would've helped fill out the gathering in the fabric and given her a more voluptuous silhouette"

FOUR FRENCH NATIONALS SHOT DEAD IN SAUDI ARABIA

Four French nationals, some of them Muslims, were shot dead in Saudi Arabia on Monday February 26th in what appeared to be a militant attack, the state's television said.

It said a group of eight French nationals came under fire near the town of Tabuk in the northwest of the vast desert country as they were heading to the holy city of Mecca for a pilgrimage.

Two of the group died at the scene and two others died later in hospital, the report said. The group include four women and a child but it was not clear if they were among the dead.

I usually don't like reporting sad events but this caught my attention. The killing happened in SAUDI ARABIA, a country which is supposed to be the most peaceful Arab nation in the world. I have a British friend who works in an oil comapny over there, I hope they don't get to him. But does this mean that this country is no longer safe for foreigners? It's a sad world we live in.

May the souls of those departed live in perfect peace. Amen.

EDDIE MURPHY STORMS OUT OF OSCAR AWARD.



Is Eddie Murphy a sore loser? After failing to nab the award for Best Supporting Actor, loosing to Little Miss Sunshine’s Alan Arkin, Murphy tried to brush off the loss, telling reporters, "It's fine. It happens. It's OK."

But clearly it wasn't. The sore looser was visibly upset and shortly after loosing, Murphy, 45, and girlfriend Tracey Edmonds left the show and didn’t return. He didn't bother to stick around and watch his Dreamgirls castmates perform and he also wasn't there to see his co-star, Jennifer Hudson, pick up her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

But really, did Eddie expect to win? For what? His performance in Dreamgirls wasn't spectacular. Maybe he deserved a nomination, barely, but a win? Lai lai. I have absolutely no idea why "The Golden Globes' gave him a win. I'm glad he lost. Sore losers don't deserve to win! By the way Eddie, how do you expect things to go well with you when you dumped your pregnant girlfriend? Get real and take responsiblity for your actions. Looser!!!

DARE ART ALADE IS MARRIED!



Dare Art Alade is married. Beautiful! I've been hearing the gist for a while now but refused to report it until I heard it From the horse's mouth. Nice! He said it himself at the Thisday Award show where he was one of the MC's. Cute! Dare is married. Incredible! What's better than finding someone who completes you? Great feeling! Dare is 25/26 years old? Wow! Couldn't he have waited till he was at least 30? Mind your own business Linda.

Congrats to Dare and his new wife Deola who got hitched on the 17th of February 2007. Happy married life!!!

LEMAR AND DIANA ROSS IN NIGERIA.


Lemar Obika


Diana Ross

How could I have forgotten to tell y'all? Lemar and living legend Diana Ross were in Nigeria just this last weekend. They both performed at the 12th Annual Thisday Awards, which held on the 24th of February, 2007, at the Muson Center, Onikan, Lagos.

I saw it live...hmm...I mean...I saw it live on television. I'd had absolutely no idea that such a thing was about to happen in Nigeria. Had I known, I would have gone to the end of this world to find a pass to that show. Common people, Lemar in Nigeria and I didn't see it live? That's so unfair. And Diana Ross? That's even more painful.

Lemar's performance
Lemar said that was his first time of coming to Nigeria in fifteen years. That's a sad thing to happen. I'm not routing for Lemar anymore. He should come home more often. He churned out most of his popular music and the crowd consisting mostly of the 'elites', couldn't have enough of him.

His performance was beautiful. He sang all his popular songs and there was absolutely no alteration in his voice. You would think he was miming, but my boy wasn't. He performed live. Incredible voice.

Diana Ross's performance
Her band performed for about 5minutes before she came on stage singing her hit song and my all-time favourite Diana Ross song, 'I'm coming out'. The crowd went wild immediately she appeared on stage. She rightfully received a standing ovation. After that, she performed two songs from 'The Supremes' album. She sang songs from her 60's, 70's, 80's album. The people watching her live had a great time, especially the women. They just couldn't stop singing along, dancing and clapping in excitement. It was a beautiful thing to see. Diana would have felt really appreciated and loved.

But something happened that shouldn't have happened. At a point during her performance, a man clad in agbada carrying a bunch of flowers tried to climb the stage to give the flowers to Diana but she stopped him with a hand gesture, and said 'you have no right to come on my stage' then she continued singing. The embarrassed 'big man' disrespectfully threw the flowers on stage beside Diana, who still paid no attention to him. Somebody from her crew came to pick the flowers up. After that particular performance, Diana left the stage. Now, I don't know if she left the stage because of the incident or if she'd been planning to leave after that performance but anyway, she came back on stage and performed 'I will Survive'. I guess somebody backstage must have told her she hadn't performed the particular song Nigerian's love to bits. That was her final performance and she left the stage amidst shouting, clapping and hailing from the crowd.

Did I also tell you that she changed 5 times? And the speed at which she changed was alarming, especially because her clothes were tight fitting/figure hugging. She's been performing for over 45 years now, she must know the tricks of changing outfits fast. Anyway, apart from the flower incident, everything went well. It was her first time in Nigeria, Let's hope she had a good time.

After the two performances, I went to bed. Congrats to everyone who won an award. By the way, does anyone know how I can contact Lemar? He looks like the man I saw in my dream. lol
