I honestly don’t know what you people want from Khloe at this point. Clearly it is not juts about this filter, it is related to the Tristan Thompson issue, because I see no reason why anyone would think that the mother of one will automatically release this shiny, sparkly photo of herself and you fans will assume it is all natural. Of course it will be series of filters to it.
Now that the actual photo or video to the video has surfaced, fans are dragging Khloe for using so much filter to receive fans, when they (fans ) are constant users of that same filter. Let us tone down the judgmental lifestyle Abit for crying out loud. This whole Kardashian attack mob squad is getting out of hand though. Rest alittle you guys.
The business boys are at it again. After an author Alex Berenson showed a screenshot evidence that Amazon’s Kindle refused to publish his book, Elon Musk buys over the fight and decides that it actually time to break up Amazon since Monopoly is giving it so much power and authority to make this significant decisions whenever it pleases. we are still waiting on Jeff to respond, but that is highly unlikely as the money man will rather keep securing his bags than have a non beneficial public fight with Elon.

The Ooni of Ife was said to have had such a long sucky day after spending upto 30!minutes in a malfunctioning elevator at Lagos Intercontinental, while his men ran Helter skelter to get help .
No one leaves their homes hoping to be a victim of elevator malfunction. He was aid to have been reasonably calm about it letting his men do the freak out. I’m glad he is fine and safe. But having to spend all that time in a locked elevator with all these people, can be so nerve wracking.
Seems the new year is bringing in some form of desperation and lack of funds in the North part of Nigeria. Though with brokage being a very perculiar part of January, one would think the South will show more desperation than the North, since the North is considered a more content and less money driven side of the country. With Kaduna being a Northern Nigeria state, it was assumed that they will not exhibit such behaviour. But then again, they did.
Today Thursday the train was said to have been attacked at the northern state. As the train headed for Abuja was attacked near Katari village in Kagarto Local Government Area of Kaduna State .The bandits has guns in their possession as they were siad to have really destroyed part of the train.
With the south generating much income of the country, one would think trains and other mode of transport would be directed towards the South. But it was rather taken to the North where they are now being destroyed and attacked. This is what you get.

”And indeed, the twenty-one-year-old Thorne brings a novel cinematic vocabulary to the XXX world, in which she envisions the sparingly depicted sex as an accessory to a grander thesis about connection and volatility that she’s developed across multiple platforms over a course of years.
Regardless of the format, regardless of platform, regardless of medium, a work by Bella Thorne can only ever be that — a work by Bella Thorne, nothing more and nothing less. What she might currently lack in discipline she more than makes up for with sheer creative assurance. She has an eye and she has ideas, and she’s learning how to express them at an angle through the mediating influence of narrative (as opposed to the directness of her unlocked-diary writing, or the bluntness of her songcraft). She’s growing into an identity as a true multimedia artist, all the more captivating for her intimate imperfections. #thelifeofawannabemogul
A 73-year-old woman has given birth to twins girls. It was her first ever pregnancy and childbirth.
By this medical feat, the aged mother is being suspected to be the world’s oldest woman.
According to Asian News International, Erramatti Mangayamma was given in marriage to Yarramatti Rajarama Rao 57 years ago when she was a mere 16-year-old girl.
She was, however, unable to conceive naturally, a situation she said tried her patience and made her feel unwanted.
