Ivor Novello nominee Ghetts: 'What I'm doing now is inspirational'

Ghetts

The Ivor Novello nominee on shoutouts for Kim and Kanye, big-ups for Beyonce, Nipsy Hussle's legacy and the future of grime.

Ghetts has seen a lot of success since bringing "darkness" to grime 16 years ago.
But the 34-year old from east London insists he's not lost that spark of anger mixed with passion that propelled him onto the music scene in 2003 following a stint in prison.
Speaking to Humbsblog UK at the Ivor Novello nominations launch in London, he explained: "My music has always been a reflection of where I'm at in my life.
"I do meet some fans that say to me, 'You've got softer over the years'. And I say to them, 'When you first heard me what did you like about me? The honesty, the truth, the passion?'
"It's the same thing now, if I sounded how I sounded when I was 19 and 20, 21, I'd be lying to you. I can't recreate a reflection of that. The whole point of progress is so I don't sound like that.
"What I'm doing now is inspirational. And you can look back and say 'Wow, he's come a long way from how he first was and how he conducts himself'."
Sitting in the swanky Ivy restaurant in the West End, that teenager from Plaistow has indeed come far.

Louis Tomlinson, Richard

We're just warning you now: Tissues may be needed while you watch this video.

On Wednesday morning, Louis Tomlinson took to Instagram and shared a special new video near and dear to his heart.

"A month or so ago I met an amazing man called Richard. He had a few things he wanted to do so I thought I'd help him out," he shared with his social media followers. "This video feels particularly relevant and powerful to me."

Louis continued, "Richard is a classic example of a fearless man who in light of tragedy still pushes himself to live with as much laughter and happiness as possible."

But don't take his word for it. Watch the video for yourself below to experience the full effect.

While visiting Yorkshire, United Kingdom, Louis met Richard whose wife Pat suffered from Alzheimer's before passing away in December 2016.

"I lost someone around the same time. My mum," Louis shared in the video. "I heard Richard had a bucket list. Things he'd always wanted to do. So I went to see him."

From flying a helicopter and driving a race car, to riding a roller coaster and singing in a packed arena, Louis helped Richard accomplish more than a few items.

And yes, a special friendship was formed in the process.

"It's been a good time with you  Louis," Richard shared with the singer. Louis added, "It's been lovely. No bulls--t. Actually spending real time with you and feeling like we've gotten to know each other. It's been really nice."

After you watch the video—and wipe away your tears—there's one thing you can do to pay it forward.

Louis shared a few charities making an impact on so many people around the world. Whether donating to the Alzheimer's Society, Cancer Research UK or Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, everyone can make a difference.

Well done, Louis! And the song sounds really great too.

Ken Kercheval aka Cliff Barnes attends the 30th Anniversary Reunion of the TV show Dallas at South Fork Ranch on November 8, 2008 in Parker, Texas

Ken Kercheval, who played oil tycoon Cliff Barnes in the TV series Dallas, has died at the age of 83.
Kercheval died on Sunday in his native Indiana, according to his agent Jeff Fisher.
The cause of death is being kept private, he said, although the Hollywood Reporter said he was believed to have died of pneumonia.
Kercheval's character was the rival of Larry Hagman's scheming oil baron JR Ewing on Dallas, which aired from 1978 to 1991.
He was one of only two cast members to remain on the popular TV show through its 14 seasons as well as returning for its revival series between 2012 and 2014.
According to Variety, when Dallas viewers asked him when Cliff was "finally going to get JR" Kercheval always answered: "This Friday night!"
Kercheval also appeared in other series, including The Defenders in the 1960s and ER and Diagnosis Murder in the 1990s and 2000s.

Lil Xan Questions if Girlfriend Annie Smith Was Actually Pregnant in Shocking Interview


Lil Xan, Annie Smith

Lil Xan is opening up about the ongoing drama surrounding his relationship with Annie Smith.

In an interview with No Jumper, the rapper is getting real about his infidelities, reported pregnancy and miscarriage, and his journey to sobriety.

First things first, the artist addresses the salacious rumors surrounding his relationship with Annie Smith. Since the pair started dating late last year, they have gone through their fair share of ups and downs, including the reveal of their pregnancy and wedding plans in February. However, that happy news was quickly dampened by accusations of sharing false sonogram photos. At the time, Annie told E! News that a girl photoshopped the sonogram photo with "another persons name, year, birthday etc, and uploaded them to Google."

Then in April, in an unfortunate series of events, Annie claimed she miscarried their unborn child. "i wish more than anything that i could meet you, hold you and love you," Annie wrote in a post about the miscarriage.

While Lil Xan alluded to the loss on his Instagram, he never addressed the rumors and subsequent miscarriage, until now. In light of the accusations and recent experiences, it appears the 22-year-old is doubting the accuracy of his girlfriend's claims. Some fans think the rapper was in on the alleged fake pregnancy, but he says that even he finds some of her statements "questionable."

"I hope, like, we're supposed to be getting some documentation from Kaiser Permanente, a hospital, but I was like I need the paperwork of the miscarriage that you had. And then because I sent her — this is another suspicious thing — I was like, 'Go down to the hospital because it's on our street and get the paperwork that — same hospital she went to — get the paperwork saying you had a miscarriage,' but she came back saying, 'Oh I have to do this process and s--t'," he explains. "So I was like, it really gets you thinking, you know what I mean? I want to give her the benefit of the doubt."

Lil Xan shares that the whole situation "pisses" him off, because, like his fans, he doesn't know the truth either.

Despite the numerous questions swirling through Lil Xan's mind, he says he still loves Annie, but admits it's "complicated as f--k." The rapper adds, "We in limbo or some s--t."

While he and Annie work through their relationship issues, Lil Xan says he is "holding back" in his interactions with other women, which is contrary to his typical behavior. He confesses that he routinely sleeps with other women, but won't tolerate his girlfriend doing the same. "It's the biggest double standard," he admits.

Khloe Kardashian Shares Heartbreaking Post About a Relationship


Khloe Kardashian, Tristan Thompson, Instagram, 11-17-17

Khloe Kardashian seems to have heartbreak on the brain.

It's been two months since the reality star and her NBA pro ex Tristan Thompson called it quits amid an alleged cheating scandal purportedly involving Jordyn Woods.

While Khloe and Tristan have since gone their separate ways romantically, the famous mom and dad are seemingly committed to co-parenting their 1-year-old daughter True Thompson, as evidenced by her recent birthday party earlier this month, which they both attended.

However, it seems the events of the last few months are weighing on the Good American mogul's mind because she has continued to share cryptic posts to her Instagram account.

On Tuesday, the posts included a heartbreaking one about a relationship, seemingly aimed at Thompson. 

"The saddest thing about our story is that we could have made it work. If you cared about me like I cared about you, you would have fought for me. But you didn't. So its clear, i was right every time that i told you that i loved you more. You always denied it and said you loved me more, but i guess now we know," the post read.

Kardashian also shared another saying that read, "People hate when you show them how it feels to be treated the way they treat you."

However, they were not all on the sad side. One post seemed like a message to supporters. "I want to say thank you to the rare few individuals in my life who have listened without judgment, spoken without prejudice, helped me without entitlement, understood without pretension and loved me without conditions," it read.

Others, like one attributed to Nelson Mandela—"I never lose. I either win or learn,"—were more optimistic.

"A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy," another post encouraged. "The moment you start acting like life is blessing. I assure you it will start to feel like one. Time spent appreciating is time worth living."

Shockingly Evil : Efron as notorious serial killer Ted Bundy


Zac Efron, Lily Collins and director Joe Berlinger at the European premiere

The Sky cinema original production follows the trial of Bundy and his relationship with long-term girlfriend.

Zac Efron has spoken about how he got into the psyche of serial killer Ted Bundy at the premiere of his new film about the notorious US murderer.
The Hollywood star spoke to Sky News on the red carpet for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile alongside his co-star Lily Collins, who plays his long-term girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer (called Liz Kendall in the film).
After maintaining his innocence for years, Bundy finally confessed to the murders of more than 30 women and girls across several states in the 1970s before his execution in 1989. However, it is believed the real number of victims is still unknown and that the real number could be far higher.

For Efron, who is best known for films including the High School Musical series, The Greatest Showman and Hairspray, playing the infamous Bundy was a very different challenge.
"We had a plethora of footage, so much source footage from his different trials," he told Sky News. "There was a lot to go on.

Burna Boy: If anything happens to Bold Pink, I have nothing to do with it


If anything happens to Bold Pink, I have nothing to do with it – Burna Boy

Burna Boy who reacted to a rant by Bold Pink, has stated that if anything happens to her, he had nothing to do with it.

In a video post shared on Instagram, Pink mockingly teased the star act and wondered why he decided to grace the stage of the event after making so much noise on social media, over the size in which his name was written.



According to her, it was inevitable that he would want to attend, because he needed the organizers more than they needed him. She said the performance is no doubt going to be a boost on his resume.

However reacting to the claims made by Bold Pink via Instagram, Burna Boy stated that if anything happens to her he had nothing to do with it.


He wrote; ‘Please o, if anything happens to this person, I had NOTHING to do with it’

The Startling Truth the Meghan Markle Birth Drama Has Revealed About William and Harry


Prince William, Prince Harry, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews Wedding

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's baby hasn't even been born yet, and already it's telling us so much about the nature of the monarchy.

With the Duchess of Sussex's due date fast approaching—or just past, no one really knows—speculation is raging as to the circumstances in which she will actually be delivered of a son or daughter, as the official announcement traditionally states.

But will there even be that exactly worded announcement posted outside the Buckingham Palace gates? Where will the baby be delivered, in London or closer to Harry and Meghan's new residence in Windsor? At a hospital or at home, hearkening back to the way it was always done before Princess Anne and Princess Dianaeschewed the norms of previous generations?

Harry and Meghan have "taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private," a Buckingham Palace spokesman said earlier this month.

Lest anyone needs reminding, when Kate Middleton gave birth to each of her three children, the process unfolded, from the declaration of labor to their first photo op, with military precision. It felt as if there was no room for error and, luckily, the babies obliged.

So that's the royal baby protocol we've been used to for the past six years, and the wait-and-see nature of Meghan's pregnancy—which, in real life, is obviously the more normal of the two scenarios—has driven home not just the differing sensibilities between Kate and Meghan (Kate, unless she really wanted to rock the boat, didn't exactly have too much say in the matter), but just how different Harry and his older brother Prince William's lives are—and have been all along.

The schism that appears to have formed between the two turned into a division of continental proportions this week when it was reported that Harry and Meghan might move to Africa after their baby is born—and the palace didn't deny it. 

"Any future plans for The Duke and Duchess are speculative at this stage," a spokesperson said in response. "No decisions have been taken about future roles. The Duke will continue to [fulfill] his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador."

The fact that this idea is even among life's possibilities for the couple illustrates the divergent paths the Cambridges and Sussexes will continue to take as William and Kate get ever closer to the throne and Harry and Meghan set out on their own.

I wish I had a best friend that can borrow my clothes – Laura Ikeji

Fashion entrepreneur, Laura Ikeji has flaunted her closet on social media with a wish that she had a best friend who would share the items she’s got with.

According to her, if she were to do such with a friend, it would be someone she can trust to the point that the person can come to her house and pick any item even when she’s away.

She wrote:

“Sometime I wish I had a best friend that can come borrow my wigs, clothes, bags, shoes, someone that can come to my house without me being around, someone I could trust enough to travel with me and my family, (Not a staff or someone who works with me), someone who loved fashion like me, or maybe if my husband had a younger sister she could share my stuff with me or maybe”.

She also revealed that the best friend she has is the type that is not concerned about fashion.

“My best friend @misszaynab doesn’t care about all these, this girl hasn’t asked me for a dime in about 15 years that I’ve known her , I love u Yemisi, just sometimes I wished u liked all these fashion and its mess lol. U just no send”, Laura Ikeji added.

John Cena Enjoys Romantic Date With Shay Shariatzadeh: All the Details

John Cena, Nikki Bella

John Cena and Shay Shariatzadeh appear to be going strong.

The WWE star and his rumored new girlfriend were recently spotted on a date at Tower23 Hotel's restaurant in San Diego, Calif. An eyewitness tells E! News that John and Shay were petty "casual" on the date but would "touch each other's legs" affectionately at times. In a photo posted on social media by @krystaallb, John and Shay can be seen chatting as they sit side-by-side and enjoy the scenic view of the restaurant.

The eyewitness also shares with E! News that 42-year-old actor ordered a chili mango margarita on the date, which can also be seen in the social media snap.

This sighting of John and Shay comes about a month after photos emerged of the duo getting cozy on a date night in Vancouver. After the pictures surfaced, John's ex, Nikki Bella, opened up about seeing the photos of her ex moving on.

"When I saw the headline...my stomach went into knots," Nikki shared on The Bellas Podcast in early April. "But then when I opened it up and saw the photo it was weird, I...you know when you get a text or you see a photo or you see your significant other flirt with someone or something, you know how you get those knots in your stomach that hurts? You either want to poop your pants immediately...or you just have the craziest tummy ache, right? So neither of that happened to me when I saw the photos."

The Total Bellas star went on to admit that seeing John smiling in the paparazzi pictures made her feel "happy for him."

"I'm very happy for him," Nikki said. "As long as John is happy, I'm happy, but let me tell you, she breaks his heart, wow...I will Rack Attack her in a heartbeat. Still protective of that man."

Nikki, who has since moved on with Dancing With the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev, shared that all she wants is for her and John to both "be happy."

"John is an amazing man," the 35-year-old star said. "And, you know what? Our timing wasn't right. And, who knows, can timing be right for us in the future? Maybe, maybe not. Are we meant for other people? Maybe."

Gwyneth Paltrow and Dakota Johnson Redefine "Conscious Uncoupling" Without Chris Martin


Derek Blasberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Dakota Johnson

It was 50 shades of friends at what was likely a birthday dinner for Derek Blasberg that featured Gwyneth Paltrow and Dakota Johnson. There's a chance that Paltrow stopped by after the Avengers: Endgame World Premiere in Los Angeles as she sported the same G. Label little black dress that she wore on the carpet.

Johnson is in a happy relationship with Martin, who also happens to be Paltrow's ex and father of their two kids, Apple Martin, 14, and Moses Martin, 13.

Paltrow and the Coldplay frontman split in 2014 and announced the news in a Goop blog post that was titled "Conscious Uncoupling." The term quickly transformed into a colloquial phrase, which Blasberg referenced in his Instagram post on Tuesday afternoon. He uploaded two pictures of the three of them where they're smiling and laughing at a dinner table with a large glass cup of a fruit dessert in front of them.

"Consciously throupling," he captioned it.

For what it's worth, Paltrow said in 2016 that she would have gone about the separation and "conscious uncoupling" announcement a bit differently.

"It was such a difficult time in my life and I was trying so hard to protect my children and my family, Chris included. We were both fragile. It was really tough. To me it felt like this is a quiet way to do this and it is contained," she said at the time.

But now the Goop founder and the 50 Shades of Grey star have consciously become friends and have a presence in each other's lives.

Johnson and Martin sparked romance rumors in early 2018 with a series of outings and date nights. A source told E! News in May 2018 that they were "very happy" together. Happy enough to get matching infinity tattoos!

Oyemykke to Simi: Yahoo Boys: Keep same strength for politicians


Yahoo Boys: Keep same energy for politicians – Oyemykke to Simi

Oyemykke who once had a face-off with Noble Igwe over ‘Yahoo Boys’ arrested at a nightclub, has advised singer Simi on her fight against internet fraudsters.


The Social media influencer asked Simi if she will keep same strength she used in criticizing internet fraudsters for politicians.
He also stated that most of the Nigerian stars were made from the proceeds of fraud and so they are not in the best position to condemn fraudsters, rather they should face the politicians who are the real fraud stars.
He wrote:
Let’s call a spade what it is, Fraud is bad & should be condemned. But not from a fellow fraud star & that’s my main concern. There’s no need to fight one side of corruption , Nigeria is bad & even 5 year olds are becoming & dreaming about Fraud. Let’s curb it together but it’s very important we start from the TOP .
DO NOT BE VOICELESS WHEN WE ARE FIGHTING POLITICIANS!! KEEP THESAME STRENGTH as you have for these Internet Thieves with the ones that book your shows, with the ones that give endorsements. I say this because I see how Politicians are celebrated everyday when they are the bigger problem of our society. Fight All If We Must Fight & Fight From The Top .
