Trinidad and Tobago born Nicki Minaj is aware of the devastation being experienced following weekend flooding in Trinidad. The “Chun-Li” singer reposted a video initially highlighted by Soca artist, Bunji Garlin on Instagram on Sunday. It has since amassed over 200,000 views with other international celebrities now paying attention.
Bunji Garlin and his wife, Fay Ann Lyons have been using their social media platform to highlight some of the havoc caused as a result of the inclement weather. Many people have been displaced. Reggae artist, Isasha, who lost his brother Million Voice to cancer just a couple weeks ago, was faced with further turmoil when his home at Green Vale, La Horquetta was flooded and his vehicle also caught in the chaos.
On Instagram, Minaj had told fans back in September that she was planning to visit Trinidad and Tobago soon. Whether she will still be making that trip, is unknown. Meanwhile, other big names like DJ Khaled and Busta Rhymes have acknowledged the situation in T&T, Busta calling on Garlin to contact him. Another Trinidad and Tobago born rapper, Trinidad James also sent words of comfort to his fellow citizens on the weekend.
Rainfall continues in the twin island republic today. A number of people have been lending assistance in the aftermath of the floods but at this time, much is needed to bring the nation back to a sense of normalcy.
Urban radio station Boomchampionstt.com is among the entities assisting with relief collection. You may drop off items to render assistance, at their office, which is located at 88-90 Abercromby Street in Port-of-Spain.
As Meghan Breaks Silence on Mental Health, William and Kate Say, “The Work Isn’t Done.”
On the heels of damning allegations made by the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle that she was “silenced” while active within the Monarchy, there is news today that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, have indicated that the work isn’t done on the subject of mental health.
Ironically, in the much publicised interview with Oprah Winfrey, aired on CBS on March 7th, Meghan admitted that while confined to the restrictive protocols of the royal institution, she battled with what could only be coined, ‘mental illness’ having revealed in her interview with Winfrey, “I just didn’t want to be alive anymore.”
Now, just two weeks later, there is news that William and Kate are working to remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues via their Time to Change campaign. In a clip made public on Thursday, William says, “We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences and taken action through Time To Change, helping to challenge the stigma, which surrounds mental health.”
Prince William went on to state, “Over the past 15 years, Time To Change champions have inspired and supported thousands of people across the country, and mental health has now, at last, moved into the mainstream as part of our daily lives.” He reiterated the need to keep talking and taking action, and continue to stand up to the stigma.
His wife, Duchess Catherine, added: “Movements like Time To Change have helped to transform attitudes and encourage more openness about mental health in schools, communities and the workplace. However, the work isn’t done yet and we cannot afford to stop here.”
There has been much public outcry since Markle and Prince Harry publicly set the record straight on all matters related to their royal involvement, following their marriage.
INTERNATIONAL BUZZ: Chrissy Teigen Deletes Twitter Account After ‘Harassment’.
“Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,” Teigen wrote in the farewell message. “But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something.” – Chrissy Teigen
The wife of Grammy Award winning US recording artist, John Legend has abruptly ended her decade-long affinity with social network site, Twitter. She made the announcement via the platform on Wednesday, just before deleting her account, which spoke to some 13.7 million followers.
“For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly deeply bruised,” she tweeted Wednesday.
On Monday, via Twitter, Teigen had announced that she and Kardashians’ momager, Kris Jenner were launching a line of plant-based cleaning products. The announcement came under harsh scrutiny. Teigen responded to the hate, saying, “I really don’t wake up every day trying to make you mad but somehow I manage. and u say I have no talent. that’s something I guess.”
In her final post on Twitter, Teigen wrote, “My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap-back girl but I’m just not. My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!”
