Again, Hailey Bieber debunks pregnancy rumours

Published

on

Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey Beiber is fed up with the reoccurring pregnancy speculations on the internet and is letting everyone know that she was just bloated.

Speaking in a recent interview with GQ Hype for their latest cover story, she spoke about the constant rumours, the body-policing on the internet and how it affects her. Bieber expressed how exhausting it is to constantly refute the claims, noting that sometimes she is simply just bloated and people take it out of proportion.

She said, “Recently, everybody was like, ‘Oh my God, she’s pregnant,’ and that’s happened to me multiple times before, there is something that’s disheartening about, damn, I can’t be bloated one time and not be pregnant? It would be a lie if I was like, ‘Oh yeah, I don’t give a sh*t.”

Going on, she noted that she and her husband intend to have children in the future, and when they do they would love to keep it as private as possible. She also added that the internet would be left in the dark until they’re ready.

“It is something that I look forward to. It’s also such a private, intimate thing. It’s something that’s going to come when it comes. And it’s just, honestly, at the end of the day, so hilarious how much people f**king care. Let me do what I want with my body and you guys can do what you want to do with your body and let’s just let it be that. But when there comes a day that that is true, you, you as in the internet, will be the last to know,” she said.

Just in July 2023, the model found herself in a similar situation after Justin posted a picture of them both to his Instagram captioning the post ‘Mum and dad’. After that, the rumours spread with their fans asking if she was pregnant. She then had to clarify that he meant ‘dog mum and dad’.

Analysts caution investors against Davido’s meme coin

Published

Financial analysts have raised concerns over Davido’s newly launched meme coin and warned about the associated risks.

The introduction of the coin into the market has sparked a debate within financial circles.

Experts have highlighted similarities to historical Ponzi schemes, such as MMM, where millions of investors lost substantial amounts of money.

Analysts argued that such coins often capitalise on the popularity of individuals without strong underlying fundamentals or a clear business model.

A financial analyst, Vincent Nwani, stated that if such a coin was allowed to flourish, it would negatively affect the Nigerian financial system.

He said, “To begin with, I’m a huge fan of Davido, his music, and his family, and I will continue to enjoy his tremendous contribution to the Nigerian entertainment industry. Notwithstanding, the recently launched Davido coin is a bit overboard for me because of its semblance to various Ponzi schemes that we have contended with in this economy.”

He noted that Davido’s celebrity status and fan base were the primary drivers of the coin’s value proposition.

“I say this for so many reasons. First, the workings of the coin seem to be conceived on the strength of Davido’s popularity, which he follows with a firm belief that the platform can successfully leverage his brand. If such a coin is allowed to thrive, what it does is that other popular personalities in Nigeria will quickly follow suit, and gross cases of abuse become inevitable. No doubt, this reality has a downside implication for the Nigerian financial system.

“The MMM experience remains so fresh in our minds. Three million Nigerians lost about N18bn to MMM, and this must not be allowed to happen again.”

The Security Exchange Commission has stated that the meme coin did not get regulatory approval and warned capital market operators not to associate with it.

Another financial analyst, Ambrose Omorodion, advised anyone without financial knowledge to avoid investing in cryptocurrency, adding that the SEC would not take the business to court if investors suffered losses.

“In the financial market, we need more products to fall into. However, meme coins are highly risky and I believe that is why the SEC came out to warn people that they are risky.

“Also, since cryptocurrency has emerged in the global space, I can see that people are now venturing into it, but my advice is that if they do not have the financial knowledge, they should not go into it or invest at all. The SEC will not sue the company if investors become victims,” he explained.

Nollywood actress Osas Ighodaro has explained how losing her mother made her become more carefree and less worried about people’s opinions about her.

Speaking on Arise TV, the actress opened up about the shift in her approach to life, which made her more free-spirited.

“I know a transition happened for me because I used to be in my head a lot and I used to worry about what people thought about me a lot. But when I went through the experience of losing my mum in 2020, I realised how much she gave to so many people and she didn’t take care of herself.”

She stressed that losing her mum led her to prioritise her self-expression and self-love over worrying about others’ opinions. Ighodaro stated that changing her mindset also enabled her to enjoy life and what it has to offer and she has been happier since.

The actress explained, “I said ‘Wait a minute? I’m not going to end up like that. I’m going to live my life and I’m going to the the best that I can be and I want to represent her legacy to the best of my abilities. It’s been free since then, I’ve been living life and being happy and enjoying every moment; whether it’s good or bad. You either learn from it or enjoy it and that’s how I live my life.”

“A lot of people come up to me and say ‘I love your dancing,’ and that’s part of the freedom for me. I used to be so self-conscious before but who cares at this point, I am a thespian but I’m also someone who loves life and loves to travel and enjoy herself and dance,” she concluded.

The University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH) has clarified reports claiming Burna Boy settled the medical bills of all its patients.

In early June, the Afrofusion singer visited the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) and its teaching hospital.

Burna Boy was said to have settled the outstanding medical bills of some patients.

Some reports, however, claimed that the singer covered the bills of all the hospital’s patients.

Elabha Meni, the institution’s spokesperson, has now clarified that Burna Boy only selected patients for cash gifts or donations.

Meni said in a statement on Friday that the hospital did not receive any direct payment from Burna Boy on behalf of patients.

“We commend Burna Boy’s kindness in financially assisting select patients in our hospital to offset their bills during his visit on June 11,” Meni said.

“However, contrary to reports stating that all patients’ bills in UPTH were paid during the visit, only selected patients received cash gifts or donations.

“The hospital did not receive direct payments from the musician and his team on behalf of patients to support this worthy course of reducing healthcare costs.”
