Sarah Michelle Gellar Slams Kim Kardashian's Vogue Cover: "I'm Canceling My Vogue Magazine Subscription"



Buffy the Kimye slayer! Sarah Michelle Gellar threw some serious shade at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's first-ever Vogue cover on Friday, March 21, shortly after the Anna Wintour-approved April issue was revealed.
"Well……I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription," Gellar tweeted. "Who is with me???"
While many fans agreed with Gellar, the Crazy One star's comment also elicited a defensive quip from Kardashian's bestie, Jonathan Cheban. "Do u matter?" he said, retweeting Gellar. Cheban, along with Kardashian's closest family and friends, celebrated the couple's fashion bible coup Friday afternoon.
Vogue editor Wintour also defended her controversial choice to place the reality TV star and rapper on the issue's cover in her Editor's Letter.

"As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing

TRAGIC: Mobile policeman kills himself with a rifle in Niger


A policeman attached to the Squadron 12 Police Mobile Force PMF Minna, Niger State reportedly committed suicide by shooting himself with his service rifle.

Corporal Tanko Usman, 30, was said to have parked his motorcycle by the road, walked into an uncompleted building and went on to shoot himself fatally. The incident happened earlier today after he reportedly left his duty post at one of the city’s new generation banks.

An eyewitness who wished not to be named said no one suspected anything sinister when the policemen made his way onto the uncompleted building until the loud bang of gun shot was heard.

“Nobody suspected that something awful was in the offing when the Corporal entered the uncompleted building, infact nobody challenged him, it was the gun shot that attracted us and when we got in we found the

6 signs you married the right guy for you

Black couple travel

There was a time when you asked yourself almost 10 times a day if the guy you were about to marry was ‘The’ One. How else could you be sure that he was the person you wanted to wake up next to every morning? 

Of course, you aren’t regretting it, because taking the plunge with him was the best decision of your life. But just to reassure you, here are some signs that you did marry the right guy after all.

He is the best roommate you’ve ever had:
Are you one of those who cribbed about having nightmarish roommates throughout your college days? Today, you will agree that the guy you married is the best roomie you’ve ever had. That’s probably why you can’t wait to get home after a long day, isn’t it?

He cares for your parents as much as his:
He will check on their health regularly, and sometimes be the son they never had. The guy you married cares about your parents as much as he cares about his own. It’s also him who suggests dining out with your

9 (blatantly) obvious signs it’s time to break up a relationship

black-couple-fighting-16x9

Secrets are sometimes kept in order to spare another person’s feelings. But in a relationship, there are few, if any, things that should be kept secret from someone whom you love. Things like a criminal history, children, marriages, bad credit and illnesses should not be kept from someone you are in a serious relationship with.

1. LYING
One of the most obvious signs it’s time to break up is when your partner is lying to you. Even if he or she has excuses as to why the lie was told, lying is lying and it shouldn’t be tolerated. If your partner lies about little, insignificant things, just imagine what other things he or she could be lying about. The foundation of a good relationship is not and cannot be based off of lies.

2. NO EFFORT
Another legitimate reason to break up is if your partner is no longer putting forth any effort into your relationship. If your relationship feels one-sided and you feel as if you’re the only person caring and making any effort to keep the fire alive, it might be time to move on. All relationships can go through periods where

Move over Kimye, the Kermiggy ‘Vague’ cover version will knock your socks off! (See Photos)

'Dream come true!' Kim Kardashian and Kanye West appear on the cover of April's American VogueIt's Kermiggy! Kermit and Miss Piggy appear on the cover of 'Vague' magazine, spoofing US Vogue's April cover featuring Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

It took them quite a lot to get the coveted Vogue cover but celebrity couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and already getting stiff competition from and equally celebrated couple.
Being the #WorldsMostTalkAboutCouple, as Vogue would want to have us believe, certainly holds nothing compared to Kermit (the frog) and Miss Piggy who are referred to as the #UniverseMostTalkedAboutCouple – can you beat that?!
Nothing else can convince you of their superiority if this sensational Kermiggy Vague cover doesn’t do it for you. Check it out above.

Flaunting her curves in a sequined white wedding dress, Piggy looked radiant in diamonds as her handsome beau, Kermit rested his chin on her shoulder, gazing lovingly ahead… or so it would have read, had the snap

IMMIGRATION RECRUITMENT TRAGEDY: 5 Bodies Released, More People Turn Up Claiming To Be Injured For Automatic Job Placements

 

The Management of National Hospital, Abuja, has released five more bodies of those who died during Nigerian Immigration Service recruitment to their family members.
Only one out of the seven bodies deposited at the National Hospital mortuary on March 14 was earlier claimed after proper identification.
The hospital’s spokesman, Dr Tayo Haastrup, said on Saturday that: “we had earlier released only one body but in the last two days, we have released five more bodies to family members of the deceased.
“We are left with one body and it will be released to the family members after proper identification,’’ Haastrup said.
He said two women were still on admission in the hospital and hoped that they would be discharged soon.
An eyewitness in the hospital disclosed that shortly after a directive of President Goodluck Jonathan to compensate the families of the deceased and the injured, more people had visited the hospital claiming to be

TERRIBLE: Boko Haram's Wish Comes True In Borno

 

Public secondary schools in northeast Borno state have been closed indefinitely following deadly attacks blamed on Boko Haram Islamists, teachers and parents said Saturday.
The closure reportedly affects 85 secondary schools, catering to some 120,000 students across the troubled state, a stronghold of the militant sect waging a five year insurgency in Nigeria.
The murderous group, whose name means “Western education is sinful” in the Hausa language, has vowed to stop children attending school.
“We reported to school on Friday last week (March 14) but to our shock the principal of the school told us he had received orders from the ministry of education to close down the school indefinitely,” teacher Suleiman Gana told AFP.
“He (the principal) told us the decision affects all public secondary schools in the state and was taken as a precautionary measure to safeguard lives of teachers and students from Boko Haram attacks,” Gana said.
A Borno state official confirmed the closure of the schools to AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

EPL: Chelsea Demolish 10-man Arsenal 6-0

 

Arsene Wenger's 1,000th game in charge of Arsenal turned out to be an occasion to forget for the Frenchman as his 10-man team were crushed by Chelsea.
READ MORE:  http://news.naij.com/62559.html

Arsenal were two behind after seven minutes, with first Samuel Eto'o and then Andre Schurrle benefiting from clinical Chelsea counter-attacking.
Eden Hazard's penalty after a Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain handball all but finished the match as a contest.
Oscar scored twice before Mohamed Salah inflicted more pain on Arsenal.
Substitute Salah's strike completed a miserable afternoon for the Gunners, who appeared to have the wrong player sent off when Kieran Gibbs was dismissed following Oxlade-Chamberlain's first-half handball.
It was Jose Mourinho's biggest Premier League victory as Chelsea manager and also the first time in Chelsea's history that they have scored six times against their London rivals.
During a week in which Wenger has received much acclaim for his longevity and success, the Frenchman also prophetically remarked that every defeat left "a scar in your heart that you never forget".

After A Man's Mother Dies, He Does The UNTHINKABLE To His Wife When She Sings "Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead!"


This is all kinds of messed up!
Andrew Salmon, of Truro, Cornwall admitted in court to assaulting his wife Beverley Salmon, and locking her up in a shed back in February.
Wait, WHAT?!
Yup, this Englander’s mother died, and Beverly was pretty happy about her mother-in-law’s passing so she kept singing ‘“ding dong the witch is dead.”
It’s insensitive, but how Mr. Salmon reacted is sociopathic!
Beverly got home and found all of her possessions packed up, to which her hubby said:
“It is my house now. You are not getting in.”
Um, what?!
So, then he locked Beverly in a shed, which she escaped from, only to be punched, pinned to a bed, then

National Conference: North, South on collision course


There are strong indications that delegates from the North at the ongoing National Conference in Abuja are set to shoot down any demand for resource control at the conference.
This may be the first major area of conflict at the conference inaugurated by President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday as delegates from the South- South, South-West and other parts of the country are hell-bent on pushing for fiscal federalism.
Delegates from the South-West, South-South and South-East, in separate interviews with Saturday PUNCH on Wednesday, said that they would press for resource control and   strong federating units, describing them as the bedrock of equity, fairness and good governance in the country.
But their counterparts from the North said the region would oppose any demand  for  fiscal federalism and resource control, saying demanding such could lead to the disintegration of the country.
A northern delegate and former spokesperson for the Arewa Consultative Forum, Mr. Anthony Sani, said the North would not support   the idea of having a weak centre and strong federating units, saying this would

A Woman Claims She Saw Missing Malaysian Plane Sinking, but no one listened to her


An eagle-eyed passenger on a flight across the Indian Ocean may have seen the missing Malaysian airplane sinking into the sea the day it vanished – but nobody took her seriously, she said.
Raja Dalelah Raja Latife, 53, was flying from Saudi Arabia to Malaysia near the Andaman Islands on March 8, when she spotted what she believes was flight MH370 below.
"It looked like an airplane . . . I took a closer look and was shocked to see what looked like the tail and wing of an aircraft on the water," she told the Malaysia's Star Online. "I had seen several shipping liners and islands from my window earlier. Then, I saw the silvery object."
Latife said she quickly reported the sighting to a flight attendant, who closed her window shade and told her to go sleep.
A pilot who wished to remain anonymous later claimed Latife was too high up to recognize objects below with accuracy.
"Along any flight path, especially a long-haul one such as between Jeddah and Kuala Lumpur,

Sitting down for long hours makes your butt bigger - Scientists reveal

 
 
I know many ladies would be happy about this. Want to have a big butt without surgery? All you have to do is sit down for long hours. Scientists at Tel Aviv University have confirmed that sitting really does cause a fat backside.

The more we sit down, the more fat cells in the buttocks expand creating a rounder derriere.
They revealed that 'Cellular expansion' plays a key role in fat production because the pressure on cells causes them to increase in size by 50 per cent.Fat cells exposed to sustained, chronic pressure - such as what happens to the buttocks when you're sitting down - experienced accelerated growth of lipid droplets, which are molecules that carry fats.
'Contrary to muscle and bone tissue, which get mechanically weaker with disuse, fat

Sanusi can’t escape arrest – FG tells Court

Sanusi-Lamido-Sanusi

The case between the Federal Government and the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi Lamido, is heating up as the former has refused to shift its stance.
The F.G, in response to a suit filed by Sanusi, has said that the CBN governor can not succeed in his attempt to restrain the police and  the Department of State Security Service from arresting him.
The government, which is involved in the suit alongside the Inspector General of Police and the Department of State Security, also added that the reliefs Sanusi sought were constitutionally impossible to grant.
The Daily Independent reports:

Sanusi had filed the suit seeking an order restraining the police and officers of the Department of State Security (DSS) from arresting, detaining or otherwise harassing him.
While faulting the suit, the AGF, in an affidavit in support of the preliminary objection, said the reliefs sought by Sanusi were constitutionally not grantable as the Police and the DSS cannot be restricted from carrying out their constitutional and statutory duties of arresting and prosecuting anyone found

Opinion: Nigeria is showing worrying signs of a failed State

jonathan tired

2014, the penultimate year of the general elections, have been greeted with bloodbath in the North-East and North-Central parts of the country. The ever elusive Boko Haram “terrorist” group and its mobile unit, the Fulani militias have claimed hundreds of lives, over 100 of them just yesterday in Katsina State at a time when the president was visiting and it were expected that the state would be under the tightest of security

Nigeria prides herself as being the giant of Africa. Our leaders brainwash themselves with emotive optimism, denying and rationalising away the relevance, significance, or importance of the glaring reality about the declining state of the nation. Wake up compatriots, our beloved country is at the brink of failure. Many have questioned the foundations of our existence in the first place, saying the formation of Nigeria was just an expedient conglomeration of different kingdoms forced under one roof. The experiment is going terribly wrong and with no lessons learnt for 100 years, we are set up for disaster except something drastic and spectacular happens.
When a country cannot defend its sovereignty, provide reasonable public services like power, education, healthcare, guarantee the security of lives and property, conduct free and fair elections, tackle corruption, ensure justice and human rights, ensure economic stability and provide reasonable employment for its youths,

Obesere to Shoot Movie about his Rape Scandal?


Still insisting he is innocent of the rape allegation levelled against him, fuji musician Obesere is right now set to shoot a movie concerning the scandal. According to Obesere’s publicist, Deola Adeoti, Obesere has written a script about the alleged rape and he is currently shopping for artistes who will fit into the characters.
Deola Adeoti told Punch:
“The movie is targeted at unravelling the mystery behind the rape scandal. A whole lot of things have been said about him in the past few weeks, but I think this movie will tell the world the plain truth. Apart from his own experience, Obesere is aware of some men who had been blackmailed with this same scandal and he felt that it was high time he exposed some of these women of evil.”

Wizkid and Tania Omotayo Part Ways

I was a gang leader – Cobhams Asuquo


Visually-impaired ace music composer, producer and singer, Cobhams Asuquo, tells ADEMOLA OLONILUA about his childhood and music career:

As a producer, why are you delving into singing?
I realised that there are many things I can do. I am fortunate to have the gifts of singing and writing just as well as producing. I don’t have any excuse not to explore everything I have the gift and capacity to do and to be. I realised that there is a purpose for having the voice that I have. I have been singing more these days and I am coming to terms more with my voice. I went into music production because I wanted to express music in a certain way and I did not feel like I had the voice to express music. Right now, because I am coming to terms with my own voice, I am able to do that. I am happy to express music in various forms. That is why I am writing and singing now and God knows what I am going to do next.

How do you feel when you are compared with the likes of Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder?
I feel humbled but at the same time, I don’t know if we share anything other than the fact that we are all blind; we sing and we play the piano. Come to think of it, in retrospect, that is enough to share; to be likened

Special Forces Capture Boko Haram Leader, Kill 70 Insurgents


The campaign against insurgents in the North-East intensified with the capture of a top leader of Boko Haram and the killing of about 70 insurgents at the sect’s stronghold in Gwoza Hills, Borno State.
Saturday PUNCH investigations revealed that the leader was arrested on Thursday evening while he was trying to flee the bombarded Gwoza Hills with some black Toyota Land Cruiser sports utility vehicle in his escort.
It was learnt that the Special Forces captured him alive and flew him immediately out of Borno State to Abuja for interrogation in one of the military formations in Abuja.
A source, who confided in our correspondent, said that the arrest of the man suspected to be one of the topmost commanders of the sect  (if not the leader), had triggered anxiety among security agents in Borno State.
Security officials were of the view that the captured Boko Haram leader might be a very key person to the operation of the sect for him to have such a massive and luxurious escort comprising Toyota Land Cruiser

David Guetta and wife Cathy reportedly got a divorce last week, ending their 24 year marriage. According to France's Voici magazine, the couple's relationship was legally ended in a Paris court, but neither the DJ nor the nightclub manager were present at the hearing.
