Why Madonna Dated Only Toyboys & The Reasons

Since he first met Madonna 35 years ago, Hollywood writer J. Randy Taraborrelli has always had the inside track on her turbulent private life. Now, as the defiant Queen of Pop is about to turn 60, he has updated his best-selling biography — with the full story of her late-life penchant for toy-boys . . .

By March 2008, Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s seven-year marriage was under strain. She felt he was becoming dull and set in his ways; he thought she, at almost 50, should dress less raunchily and start acting her age.

In particular, the film director felt her continued insistence on doing gruelling and lengthy world tours meant that she couldn’t devote enough time or attention to their children  her 11-year-old daughter Lourdes, from a previous relationship, and their sons Rocco, then seven, and Malawian-born David, two, whom they’d adopted as a baby.

Why Buhari Does Not Keep Friends - Associates

Former associates of the president who spoke to Saturday Vanguard yesterday lamented that the president had over the time developed the habit of not keeping friends and rather sustained the culture of only patronising those who tell him what he wants to hear.

Galadima, erstwhile secretary of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change, CPC and leader of The Buhari Organisation, TBO, the once famed political think-tank for Buhari’s politics fell out with Buhari in the period leading to the formation of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Blackface Accuses Nigerian Celebrities Of Not Doing Enough To Stop Killings In The Country

Popular singer, Blackface, is currently unhappy about the spate of killings around the country. Sadly, his state, Benue, seems to be one of the worst hit by suspected killer herdsmen.

In a chat with Saturday Beats, he said that the killings around the country would have reduced if only Nigerian singers unite with one voice to speak against the menace. “They have killed a lot of people from my village, Agatu, in Benue.

They have also killed people in Makurdi, and other places in Benue; then as they move up north to Adamawa, the trail of dead bodies continues. It does not affect my state alone. Sadly, the musicians are not doing anything about it. Some musicians just claim that they help victims either to gain public praises or for political reasons. Why can’t we come together and think of ways we can stop the killings probably by staging a concert?” he said.
