INT’L BUZZ : Celebs To Wear Orange Flag Pins At Tonight’s Oscars. Here’s WHY…



In the United States, celebs are stepping up and standing strong in solidarity against gun violence at tonight’s Academy Awards. People Magazine says celebs will likely rock orange American flag pins on the red carpet in a bid to raise awareness for the need to do more, when it comes to gun control legislation.

Last month, a teenager opened fire on students at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, killing 17. The orange flag pins are from an advocacy group called,  Everytown for Gun Safety, an organization dedicated to ending gun violence and raising awareness. Many celebrities have voiced their disdain for the spate of gun violence across the United States, over the years. Actress, Gabriel Union remarked, “This does not have to be our collective reality. How many more? How many children must not make it home?,” in the aftermath of the Florida shooting.

Several big names in international entertainment have donated to the effort, among them Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney.

Tonight marks  the 90th Academy Awards event. A record 40 women have received Oscar nominations outside of acting this year, including in traditionally male-dominated categories such as cinematography, directing and film editing. RnB sensational, Mary J Blige is among the nominees for her supporting role in the film, MudBound.

This year, between April 12th and April 21st, Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae, Diplo, Ariana Grande, Khalid, Solange, Kid Cudi, Pusha and Wiz Khalifa will be a part of the musical excitement. Added to that is none other that this amazing Calypso icon of Trinidad and Tobago, Calypso Rose.

Rose’s team took to Instagram to make the announcement, relaying the artiste’s excitement to be a part of the lineup. “I can’t wait to sing, dance and enjoy this time with all of you,” she said. Rose recently unleashed a new single with Trinidad and Tobago’s king of Soca, Machel Montano- a track called, “Young Boy”. It’s the second time, in recent years that the pair have worked together to create music in the carnival season. Separately, Rose, who released an album last year called, “So Calypso,” toured throughout Europe last year, showing the people in that part of the world that she certainly remains a powerful force on the music circuit. We can’t wait to see and hear her in all her glory, at Coachella.

Cardi B and Offset Split Reminds Us All That Love Ain’t What It Used to Be. Here’s How.



Ain’t it strange how two people could be so madly in love with each other in one year and in a matter of months, they’ve completely switched, turned off –  matter of fact, that love has died and there’s no hope of salvaging it? Such is the state of Cardi B and Offset’s relationship, according to the Bronx born rapper.

Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, took to Instagram overnight, where she let out her secret, revealing that she and her hubby of just one year, have been enduring problems in their relationship that could not be worked out. She admitted they had tried. The famous rap couple welcomed their daughter, Kulture, in July this year.

The news has set off a firestorm of comments across social media platforms, many arguing that the couple had rushed into marriage. They secretly wed last year. What this situation draws into focus however, is the fact that marriage and love just isn’t what it used to be.

5  Ways Love Has Changed Over the Years: 

1. Women are less pursued. In the olden days, men with interest would pursue the woman they had their eyes set on. Today, women, being the outspoken and independent creatures they are, are pursuing men even before the men have a chance.


2. Chivalry is dead. Yes it’s cliche, but it’s true. When was the last time a man opened a door for you, lady? Because women have been settling in a sense, for whatever is handed down to them, there’s no denying that men no longer feel they need to work as hard to woo the opposite sex. With the common sentiment that there is now a deficit in men to fulfill the needs of the billions of women world over, men are getting through with their pursuits, faster than the wink of an eye. Are we wrong? 


3. Couples have less time together than they once did. The fact that both men and women are now in the workforce, leaves very little time to truly communicate and understand each other. Relationships today are in most cases, built on physical and material attraction, than emotional. Many people often make the decision to enter common law relationships or get married, without truly understanding the people they’re committing to. 


Cardi B and Offset have lived their lives openly on social media. They’ve been open to criticism and applause alike.

4. Social Media, in recent time, has made intimacy and sexual relations tremendously transparent and crass. While many would agree that today’s world functions more openly than it once did, because of social media, most fail to discuss the effect that this open book method of living, has had on marriages and relationships. Today, everyone knows what everyone is doing, all the time. Privacy is a thing of the past. True love, while beautiful to share and boast about, is difficult to contain and keep alive, with the world viewing and commenting on. Truth is, Cardi B and Offset lived their short relationship in full public view- near naked and all. Did it work out for them? 


5. Women have become overly independent. If a man is told, “I don’t need you. I can do sh*t all by myself,” and worse yet if he sees, you can do it by yourself ladies, chances are, he’ll hold his corner and allow you to do it all by yourself. This leaves room for many consequences in a relationship. The over-independence of many women in today’s society has had a ripple effect on relationships and the way men show love. Once upon a time, men wooed women with expensive jewelry and weekend trips. In today’s world, the Independent woman purchases her own damn jewelry and gets on her private jet to wherever in the world she chooses to go. How’s that working out? Truth is, men need to feel needed. If they aren’t needed, where’s the true love going to come from?
