Hailey Bieber has revealed why she and her husband Justin Bieber often dress like they are on ‘two separate planets’.
The American model, 26, and Canadian singer, 29, who married in 2018, have been heavily trolled online for looking totally different when they step out for an event.
Hailey has now revealed the reason why they do not complement each other while going out for events.
She told GQ Hype when the magazine noted they often look like they are from ‘two separate planets’ when they are out: ‘It’s so funny because I see so many people talk about this.’
Revealing how Justin typically gets ready first, which could partially explain why he has been seen looking ultra-casual compared to her glamorous looks when they attend events, Hailey added: ‘He may want to wear baggy sweats to dinner, and I might want to wear a tiny little dress just because that’s how I’m feeling.
‘We can’t sit there and be like, “So I’m going to wear this and you’re going to wear this.”‘
Last year, Hailey wore a Blumarine blazer dress with thigh-high stockings to pal Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila party, and Justin opted for a hoodie and denim.
Turning to Justin’s viral Crocs look, Hailey’s friend Kelia Moniz told GQ Hype: ‘It wasn’t Justin’s day. It was Hailey’s day. He’s there to support his wife, period. But also, he still looks cool, so you can’t hate the guy.’
Along with their couples’ style, Hailey also spoke with the online magazine about the pregnancy rumors that have swirled around the pair for the last year.
She said: ‘I can’t be bloated one time and not be pregnant?’
Hailey added it was ‘disheartening’ to read people’s comments about her body.
She said: ‘It would be a lie if I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, I don’t give a s***’.
A British male model who flaunted his lavish lifestyle on social media has been jailed for nearly seven years in Peru after being caught trying to fly out of the country with £300,000 worth of cocaine.
Londoner Modou Adams wowed his thousands of social media fans with his trendsetting looks and lavish lifestyle under the self-styled moniker of ‘boywholives’ in a show of excess branded by authorities as a front for his criminal activities.
He has since confessed to being a drug trafficker and now faces the next six years and eight months in a hellhole South American jail.
Modou Adams, 25, was held at Lima’s international airport as he tried to check in for a flight to London via Paris with almost three kilos of cocaine in his suitcase.
He was handed his sentence in a rapid trial 24 hours after his arrest by the same police force that held Michaella McCollum and Melissa Reid, the so-called Peru Two in August 2013.
Modou, a former marketing and public relations intern described online as an ‘experienced’ model, made a very public show of his second fateful trip to the South American country on TikTok and Instagram.
He filmed himself posing as a tourist in Cuco, a favourite cocaine pick-up for drug mules and the city McCollum and Reid visited before their arrests, and posted selfies on the road to Andes Mountains Incan citadel Machu Picchu.
Peru’s Supreme Court confirmed the jail sentence in a statement where it referred to the Brit by his full name of Modou Dodou Adams and described him as a Tiktoker.
Revealing he had been jailed by a court in Lima’s Callao district specialising in punishing crimes where offenders have been arrested while committing an offence or immediately afterwards, it said: ‘Tiktoker Modou Dodou Adams, 25, has been jailed for six years and eight months for having co-ordinated the dispatch of nearly three kilos of cocaine to London.
‘The sentence was delivered in less than 24 hours after the accused man admitted the crime he had been charged with.’
He was arrested on September 30 although confirmation of his incarceration only emerged overnight.
Adams had jetted to Peru for the second time 11 days earlier following a first trip in February, documenting his trip to Cuzco before returning to Lima and checking into a hotel in the upmarket neighbourhood of Miraflores along the Pacific Ocean coastline.
CCTV images taken outside his hotel showed him wearing shorts and a black hoodie and carrying a suitcase into the building which would later be seized by police who intercepted him as he tried to fly back to Europe.
The dramatic moment he was taken into custody by two anti-drugs squad officers as he checked in for his flight was also filmed on cameras at Jorge Chavez International Airport.
One of the officers used a knife to cut through a false bottom of the suitcase where the cocaine was found and held it up as Adams looked on horrified.
The police then proceeded to body-search him.
Anti-drugs prosecutor Lincoln Fuentes said: ‘It wasn’t the first time this British national had come to Peru.
‘The first time he had also taken drugs out of the country, most probably in the same way with a specially-prepared suitcase.
‘In Peru, a kilo of cocaine is around £3,000 but this amount multiplies in Europe by a massive amount.’
He added: ‘Each drug mule is paid £5,200 to £6,000 per drug run as well as getting all their expenses paid including the tourist trips they enjoy to camouflage their real reason for coming here.
‘The objective this man had for coming here was solely to transport drugs back to Britain.’
In a message to other Europeans tempted by the money drug gangs offer to get them to smuggle cocaine out of Peru, he warned: ‘The prison sentences here are very high and it’s simply not worth the risk of putting your freedom in jeopardy.’
Real Housewife of Lagos cast member, model Faith Morey, has dragged her fellow cast member, actress Iyabo Ojo, following the release of episode 4 of the show.
The episode which aired on Friday, Oct. 20th saw a verbal attack on Morrey from Iyabo Ojo and another cast member, Mariam Timmer, over Faith’s relationship with Laura Kanu. The fight was so bad, according to what Faith is telling friends, that the ladies followed her to her room, but that wasn’t shown for viewers to see on the show.
Following the release of the episode and backlash from fans over her behavior, Iyabo Ojo took to her page yesterday, October 21, to explain that her behavior was mostly an act, and she signed up to be the villain of the show.
Morey, this morning, took to Instagram to call BS on Iyabo’s explanation, saying it wasn’t an act and the producers didn’t put her up to it. She said Iyabo acted the way she did because that is who she is and the bullying she endured on the show went on for five months.
Julia Fox has shared more details about her relationship with Kanye West in her upcoming memoir, Down the Drain.
The model, 33, claimed the rapper, whom she briefly dated in early 2022, ‘weaponized’ her against his ex Kim Kardashian.
‘I thought ultimately I’d be helping a precarious situation, but I learned very quickly that I was being weaponized,’ she explained to The Los Angeles Times.
Although she ‘really understood him on a visceral level’ and believed their pairing ‘could be something real,’ Julia said Kanye ultimately didn’t treat her the way she expected.
‘I just felt like his little puppet.’
Julia said she ‘went lightly’ in describing her time with Kanye in the book, even though she didn’t sign an NDA.
‘I’m not signing a f****** NDA just on principle. I never have, and I never will,’ she explained, before adding, ‘Unless it’s a professional opportunity, then sure.”
She also hinted that she may have been blacklisted from projects because of her association with the controversial star, who was dropped by several brands following his anti-Semitic comments.
‘I know for a fact I’ve been up for certain things and couldn’t do it because of dating Kanye. It’s kind of wild.’
Julia also said she never had too much invested in the romance, despite all the attention.
‘It really wasn’t that big of a deal, but other people made it such a big deal.’
After the falling out with Kanye, Julia swore off men for a while, admitting she still doesn’t ‘see the point’ in dating.
‘That romanticized idea of men doesn’t exist anymore.’
For now, the main man is her life is her adorable son Valentino, two, whom she welcomed with her ex-husband, Peter Artemiev.
‘All the validation I could ever get, I get from my son — the love, the intimacy, the closeness. We co-sleep at night. I have all of that. I wouldn’t want anyone to come in and take my attention or time away from my son.’
A Minneapolis police officer has been outed by a driver as an OnlyFans Model who’s been sharing s3x videos online.
The driver who recalled how the female officer pulled him over last week, told FOX9 that after about 10 minutes, the cop started to look familiar and he realized he’s been following her OnlyFans account for a few months.
“You got to go to the VIP and you get to see the videos of her and her, I guess husband, I guess that’s who it is, they do full sex videos.
“I wouldn’t want her to be arresting me and I just saw you and your husband last night for $29.99 have sex on OnlyFans. I just can’t respect you or the precinct that you’re working at.”
The officer, who hasn’t been named, operates an OnlyFans page that offers videos and photos she describes as “solo play” and “amateur porn.” She describes herself as 35, free-spirited and an “overly optimistic creator of sexy content to please others.”
The police department’s policy however forbids off-duty officers from any work that’s “not compatible with police work”, and this includes working at “any establishment that provides adult entertainment in the form of nude, semi-nude or topless exhibitions.”
While she’s not working at a business, but rather operating one from her home, the police brass might see it differently.
Brazilian football legend, Ronaldo has married his model partner, Celina Locks.
The newlyweds got married at a church on Monday afternoon, September 25, in the small village of es Cubells in Ibiza.
Celina, 33, who started dating the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan striker seven years ago, got engaged to him in January during a Caribbean getaway
The model and her new husband, 47, said in matching Instagram posts: ‘Today we brought our families together for an intimate religious celebration and thus marked the beginning of a week of many celebrations.
For the wedding, the bride looked stunning in a slinky ivory dress, which she wore off the shoulder, While Ronaldo looked dapper in a cream linen suit.
The guests included Ronaldo’s former Real Madrid teammate Julio Baptista.
It marked the third time the ex-footballer has walked down the aisle, after previously marrying former footballer Milene.
Ronaldo shares his son Ronald, 23, with his first wife Milene, and daughters Maria Sofia, 14, and Maria Alice, 12, with his second wife Maria.
He revealed he had a vasectomy after he was confirmed as the father of Alexander, now 17, in December 2010 following a fling with waitress Michele Umezu.
Newsweek reported that a new ad for the Braun Series X Hybrid Trimmers features a shirtless transgender man with visible mastectomy scars using the shaving product.
“This is one of hundreds of images on our site showing people using our products—all of which are reflective of the consumers we serve,” Braun, a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble, said in a statement after receiving backlash for this.
Braun went on to claim that the image was two years old.
“We routinely refresh and repurpose our videos and still images showing our products in use across multiple platforms – as we did with the series X materials in 2021,” a Procter & Gamble spokesperson added in another statement.
@Braun why is your marketing dept using a transgender model showing mastectomy scars. You are following the direction of other brands. It’s madness!!! I hope your sales plummet. pic.twitter.com/v6Tm8NtYrn

Others got in on the action as well.
“@Braun Ladies and gents, please show ALL the men in your life this ad. Apparently, Braun thinks a woman with a mastectomy is actually a man. Let’s give them the Bud Light treatment. Please RT #boycottbraun,” one social media user commented, with another adding, “Looks like Braun is telling Bud Light to hold its beer.”
“Braun’s advert for men’s beard trimmer features a trans model with double mastectomy scars,” wrote the British television personality Julia Hartley-Brewer. “I’m sure this celebration of brutal surgery to remove a woman’s healthy breasts will go down fabulously well with Braun’s male customers. Watch their sales.”
The “Bud Light treatment” is a reference to the highly effective boycott of the beer company that has been in place since it teamed up with the transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney for a partnership back in April. Since then, the brand has lost over $400 million, and Beer Business Daily publisher Harry Schuhmacher recently told Fox News that things are only looking more bleak for Bud Light moving forward.
“The Bud Light situation has actually gotten worse,” he said. “You see Bud Light still just stubbornly down around 30% in volume compared to last year, which is where it’s been since May or June. That tells me that this is quasi-permanent, meaning those consumers are just lost forever.”
Sales aside, the Braun ad is reportedly being investigated in the U.K. for violating Advertising Standards Authority guidelines, according to The New York Post.
“Promoting the removal of healthy breast tissue is not only shockingly immoral, but against advertising standards guidance to not glamorize or trivialize cosmetic surgery,” said Maya Forstater, executive director of Sex Matters.
“Braun executives must have been living under a rock if they think this campaign represents ‘inclusivity,’” she added. “The reality is that Braun has now written itself into a history as promoting social contagion and what will become of the most notorious medical scandals.”
“Once again, we find a private corporation willing to glorify irreversible surgery being performed on the healthy breasts of women, in pure pursuit of profit,” added James Esses, co-founder of Thoughtful Therapists, which is a group of psychologists who are worried about the effect of gender ideology.

Bud Light has learned the hard way that “go woke, go broke” is very real indeed, and it seems that Braun is about to learn that lesson as well. Other brands should really take notice of what’s happening to these brands and realize that going woke is simply a bad idea!

UNITED NATIONS & NAIROBI, Sep 08 (IPS) – In a world set on fire by climate change and brutal conflict, millions of children in emergencies and protracted crises need educational support. Children in 48 out of 49 African countries are at high or extremely high risk of the impacts of climate change, particularly in the Central African Republic, Chad, Nigeria, Guinea, Somalia, and Guinea Bissau.
“We have reached catastrophic proportions of 224 million children today in conflict and other humanitarian crises in need of education support. Financial needs for education in emergencies within humanitarian appeals have nearly tripled over the last three years – from US$1.1 billion in 2019 to almost US$3 billion at the end of 2022. In 2022, only 30 percent of education requirements were funded, indicating a widening gap,” Education Cannot Wait (ECW) Executive Director Yasmine Sherif tells IPS.
Released today ahead of this month’s UN General Assembly and SDG Summit in New York, ECW’s ‘With Hope and Courage: 2022 Annual Results Report’ is a deep dive into the challenges, opportunities, key trends, and vast potential that “education for all” offers as nations across the globe race to deliver on the promises outlined in the SDG’s, Paris Agreement and other international accords.
Sherif stresses that as nations worldwide celebrate International Literacy Day – and the power of education to build sustainable and peaceful societies- ECW calls on world leaders to scale up financial support to reach vulnerable children in need, especially those furthest left behind. As more and more children are plunged into humanitarian crises, there is a widening funding gap as the needs have skyrocketed over recent years.
The report sends an urgent appeal for additional financing – featuring the latest trends in education in emergencies. It also shows the fund’s progress with UN and civil society partners in advancing quality education, particularly Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 for vulnerable girls and boys in humanitarian crises worldwide to access inclusive, quality, safe education.
“While the number of out-of-school children in situations of conflict, climate-induced disasters, and as refugees is skyrocketing – funding is not keeping up with the snowballing crisis. But even in these unfortunate circumstances, the report has a positive message. ECW and its global strategic partners have reached 8.8 million children with quality, holistic education since its 2016 inception and more than 4.2 million in 2022 alone. The only reason we have not reached more children is insufficient funding. We have mobilized over $1.5 billion to date, and we need another $670 million to reach 20 million children by the end of our 2023-2026 strategic plan,” she observes.
Sherif emphasizes that the global community must ensure that girls and boys impacted by armed conflicts, climate-induced disasters, and forced displacement are not left behind but rather placed at the forefront for an inclusive and continued quality education. Education is the foundation for sustainable and peaceful societies.
“Our annual report demonstrates that it is possible to deliver safe, inclusive, quality education with proven positive learning outcomes in countries affected by conflict and to refugees. ECW has done it through strategic partnerships with host governments, government donors, the private sector, philanthropic foundations, UN agencies, civil society, local organizations, and other key stakeholders,” she explains.
“Together, we have delivered quality education to 9 million children and adolescents impacted by crises. The systems are in place, including a coordination structure; with more funding, we can reach more girls and boys in humanitarian crises around the world in places such as the Sahel, South Sudan, Yemen, Syria, and Latin America and enable girls to access community-based secondary education in Afghanistan. We have a proven efficient and effective funding model of delivering the promise of education.”
ECW has thus far financed education programmes across 44 countries and crisis settings. Of the 4.2 million children reached in 2022, 21 percent were refugees, and 14 percent were internally displaced. When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down schools across the globe, ECW repositioned its programming and supported distance learning, life-saving access to water and sanitation facilities, and other integrated supports – reaching an additional 32.2 million children.
ECW’s commitment to gender equality and tackling the gender gap in education is bearing fruit. Towards the fund’s goal of 60 percent girls reached in all its investments, girls represent over 50 percent of all children reached in 2022.
In 2022, ECW’s rapid First Emergency Responses to new or escalating crises included a strong focus on the climate crisis through grants for the drought in Eastern Africa and floods in Pakistan and Sudan. ECW also approved new funding in response to the war in Ukraine and renewed violence in the Lake Chad Region and Ethiopia.
“On scaling up funding for education, the report shows funding for education in emergencies was higher than ever before in 2022, and that total available funding has grown by more than 57 percent over just three years – from US$699 million in 2019 to more than US$1.1 billion in 2022,” Sherif explains.
With support from ECW’s key strategic donor partners – including Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as the top-three contributors among 25 in total, and visionary private sector partners like The LEGO Foundation – US$826 million was announced at the ECW High-Level Financing Conference in early 2023.
In addition, collective resource mobilization efforts from all partners and stakeholders at global, regional, and country levels helped unlock an additional US$842 million of funding for education in emergencies and protracted crises, which contributed to alignment with ECW’s Multi-Year Resilience Programmes in 22 countries.
To date, some of ECW’s largest and prospective bilateral and multilateral donors have not yet committed funding for the full 2023–2026 period, and there remains a gap in funding from the private sector, foundations, and philanthropic donors. In the first half of 2023, ECW faces a funding gap of approximately US$670 million to fully finance results under the Strategic Plan 2023–2026, which will reach 20 million children over the next three years.

Barcelona star names Jay Jay Okocha as his dribbling role model.
Barcelona youngster Alejandro Balde has named Jay Jay Okocha as the ideal dribbler in a recent video.
The 19-year-old rose through the ranks at Barcelona and has increased in profile since making his debut in the 2021/22 season, becoming the undisputed starting left-back for the Blaugrana.
Legendary Nigerian midfielder Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha has chosen a side in the long-running debate between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Iwobi is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his uncle Jay-Jay Okocha following his move to Fulham.
What Balde said
The Spain international was asked to build his ideal football team, naming the players whose abilities he thinks are the best in terms of dribbling, defending, positioning, speed, engine, strength, passing, and intelligence.
Despite growing up at a club where one of the most efficient dribblers of all time, Lionel Messi, played, Balde picked Nigerian and African football legend Jay-Jay Okocha as his preferred dribbler for his ideal footballer.
He picked himself for speed, his manager Xavi Hernandez for positioning, Andrea Pirlo for passing, N’golo Kante’s engine, Lionel Messi’s intelligence, Ronald Araujo’s defence, and Clarence Seedorf’s strength.
Jay Jay Okocha, one of the best dribblers of all time
“So good they named him twice,” Jay Jay Okocha is generally regarded as one of the most skilled footballers of all time, and it is easy to see why Balde, who was only about five years old when Okocha retired, rates him highly.
In 1995, the former Bolton midfielder completed an incredible 15 dribbles against Italy at the 1994 World Cup in the USA. This, according to My Nigeria, is the most by a single player in a match since 1966 and remains the record since 1994.
According to reports, Barcelona have reached an agreement with Xavi Hernandez on a contract renewal.
Robert Lewandowski could be issued a lengthy ban after making a statement towards the referee.
The Civil guard have determined that referees in Spain were not impartial during the reign of the referee chief Barcelona were found paying Enrique Negreira.
