Photos of Kim Kardashian‘s baby shower invitation has surfaced. The invitation is in fact a music box.
When the box is opened, it plays a ‘lullaby’ version of rapper Kanye West‘s track ‘Hey Mama’ as a plastic ballerina – which bears a resemblance to Kim K – dances.
The 32-year-old reality star – who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West – is having a lavish bash thrown in her honour on June 2 ahead of her due date in July.

The baby shower is being thrown by Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, sisters Kourtney Kardashian (and) Khloe Kardashian-Odom’ and Shelli Azoff.
Invited guests must RSVP by May 28 – four days before the event. The family have chosen a ‘Garden Chic’ theme for the bash.
I hear kanye isn’t interested in attending the bash because he believes it a ‘girl thing’, but Kim has managed to convince him to attend.

It seems Jennifer Aniston just keeps getting better with age. In this upcoming must-watch movie, We’re The Millers, the 44-year-old actress strips down to just her underwear.
Jennifer, who plays a stripper in the film opposite Jason Sudeikis, looks incredible in the see-through lacy lingerie, showing off her toned tummy and pert bottom as she gyrates her hips while performing a strip tease. She is seen slapping her bottom while performing a strip tease to Mickey Avalon‘s ‘Stroke Me.’
The film, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, is about a pot dealer (Jason) who puts together a fake family as he attempts to smuggle a large shipment of marijuana across the Mexican border into the U.S.
Jennifer plays Jason’s ‘fake’ wife, and her strip tease occurs after the ‘family’ are held hostage by a group of Mexican thugs.
‘”My wife” – she’s just a cheap stripper,’ says Jason’s character to their captors, who reply, ‘Okay, prove it.’ Jennifer’s character meets the challenge, performing a saucy dance while all the males watch with their mouths agape.

Writer Chinua Achebe shunned Nigeria’s corrupt politicians and twice turned down national honours, never fearing to criticize those he felt ruined his country. On Thursday, however, the lawmakers and the country’s elite came to praise him.
Hundreds attended Achebe’s funeral among the rolling hills of his eastern Nigeria home, a service that saw President Goodluck Jonathan literally hold up the writer’s books. The gold plaque on his coffin simply called him the “eagle atop the Iroko tree” in his native Igbo language.
It was a fitting tribute to the respect Achebe carried among the people here and for many others around the world who knew him through his books, which many say is the first African voice heard in modern literature.
“Chinua Achebe gave Africa its confidence,” said Emeka Anyaoku, an Igbo elder.
Click below to read more…
Achebe rose to acclaim with the publication of his 1958 classic novel “Things Fall Apart,” a parable for the collapse of traditional society in Africa on the arrival of colonialists. The journalist’s tense, short sentences recalled Ernest Hemingway, but offered a vision of Igbo culture before British rule ultimately united the regions that now form modern Nigeria.
“Things Fall Apart” has sold more than 8 million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than 50 languages. Though describing himself in writing as a “British-protected child,” Achebe became a forceful critic of Western literature about Africa, especially Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness.” His writings often focused on that split between cultures, serving at times as a bridge for those wanting to understand the those two worlds.
Achebe died in March at the age of 82 in Boston after an illness. Though a 1990 car crash left him paralyzed from the waist down, he continued writing and taught at universities in the United States, earning him the nickname “Prof” throughout Nigeria.
Achebe also could be just as harsh of a critic of Nigeria. When the Igbo lands of the east broke away from Nigeria to become the nation of Biafra, Achebe served as a roaming ambassador for the new nation. However, the war saw 1 million people killed, many through starvation in the waning days of the conflict. His friend, the poet Christopher Okigbo, also died but his family survived bombings and the war’s horrors.
“As we reached the brink of full-blown war it became clear to me that the chaos enveloping all of us in Nigeria was due to the incompetence of the Nigerian ruling class,” Achebe wrote in his recent civil war memoir, “There Was a Country: A Personal History of Biafra.” ”This clique, stunted by ineptitude, distracted by power games and the pursuit of material comforts, was unwilling, if not incapable, of saving our fledging new nation.”
Achebe later twice refused Nigeria’s second-highest award, the Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic, over the lawlessness in his home state of Anambra. A spokesman for President Jonathan later said Achebe’s decision to reject the honor “clearly flies in the face of the reality of Nigeria’s current political situation.” However, the problems raised in Achebe’s polemic 1980s essay “The Trouble With Nigeria” ring true even today in this oil-rich nation beset by extremist violence, rampant poverty and poor governance.
Thursday, even Jonathan held up that essay before mourners at St. Phillip’s Anglican Church, which sits just next to the primary school Achebe attended as a child in Ogidi. Jonathan mentioned how Achebe wrote that Nigeria’s problem “is political leadership” and “tribal sentiments.”
“He was making reference to what was happening in the 1950s and ’60s,” the president said. “Have we changed from that?”
The crowd loudly shouted back: “No!”
Yet Jonathan himself, toward the end of his 12-minute speech, referred to the 2011 elections that cemented him in power as a “significant improvement,” without mentioning the 800 people killed in religious rioting and political violence afterward, nor the allegations of vote rigging. Many expect Jonathan to run for re-election in 2015 and some see his appearance at burials for Igbo leaders as an attempt to sway voters in a crucial powerbase.
Ghanaian President John Mahama also attended the service alongside Jonathan, as well as other politicians and leaders. In a scene reminiscent of Achebe’s own complaints, the elite rushed out of the service and into tinted-glass SUVs. In the wake of their sirens, soldiers and police officers carrying automatic weapons pushed and fought with the surging crowds. Others scuffled over programs in the back of the church during the service.
Everyone, including Jonathan, however, waited for Achebe’s body to be first carried out of the church. Pallbearers later entombed the writer’s casket in a mausoleum next to his home, as traditional dancers and others gathered. Outside, hawkers continued to sell Achebe’s books, a sign that the writer’s influence will continue long after these ceremonies come to an end.
Said Ikechi Nwachukwu Nwosu, the Anglican archbishop who eulogized Achebe: “There are some people who cannot be buried.”

The sister of one of the Woolwich killers, Micheal Adebolajo was seen smiling yesterday as she was escorted from her home and got into a police car.
Blessing Adebolajo, 32, was led from her property yesterday morning just hours after her brother Michael, 28, was filmed ranting with blood on his hands yards from the body of the murdered soldier in Woolwich.
Blessing was carrying a bag full of clothes as she got into an unmarked police vehicle outside her flat in Romford, Essex, at 8.10am. Although she was not under arrest, but it is believed that she was invited by the police for question.
So what is that smile for? This is not the time to smile. Another family is in great grief.
Policemen attached to Ilemba Hausa division in Lagos State have arrested a couple and two others who allegedly specialized in abducting children between ages one and four years and selling them to barren women and motherless homes in the eastern part of the country.
So far, about seven children reportedly stolen from their parents’ homes in Lagos and other parts of the country have been recovered from their new homes in Imo, Anambra and Delta states.
One of the stolen children, Ezeaka Uchenna (4) was picked from his parents’ home, Madu Street, Jakande Ojo, Ajagbadi area of Lagos by one of the suspects, Adaeze Mba, on March 18, 2013 . Click below to read more & watch the video…
Adaeze who packed into same compound with the Ezeakas in January 2013, was said to have gone to purchase tapioca from Uchenna’s mother that fateful day, only to abscond with the child. The couple immediately moved out of the area and allegedly sold the child to a couple in Obosi, Anambra State for N600,000.
However, during investigation, spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Ngozi Braide, while parading the suspects, yesterday, at the Command’s headquarters, Ikeja, said the policemen acting on a tip-off stormed Ikot Ekpene in Akwa Ibom State where the couple were arrested.
“They confessed to have sold the child to one Mrs Benedict at Asaba, Delta State. We proceeded to Asaba where Mrs Benedict was arrested. She made a confessional statement that she buys and sells children to barren women and that she had sold Uchenna to one Mrs Patricia at Obosi in Anambra State.
“Investigation revealed that the couple had earlier stolen Goodluck Amaechi (3) and Promise Amaechi of same parents in Imo State and sold to Mrs Benedict. Mrs Bendict confirmed their statements and we proceeded to Obosi where the children were recovered from one Church of Goodness Motherless Babies Home.”
Adaeze blames devil
Pregnant Adaeze who hails from Mbatolu Local Government Area of Imo State blamed her indulgence on the devil and her husband, disclosing that they have been in the illicit act for five years.
“Please forgive me. I was talked into it by my husband. He asked me to get a child for him that he would pay me N400,000. When I asked what he wanted to do with the children, he assured me it was not for ritual purpose that his boss, Mrs Benedict takes them to motherless babies home.
Our Modus operandi
“Our targets are usually couples with more than three children. What we do is to move into an area, stay for about two to three months to get quainted with the people and immediately we got any child, we would leave the vicinity for another area where we are not known. We usually rent single room apartments without furnishing them.”
Corroborating her claim, her husband, Mba, said he ventured into the act when his sand dredging business was no longer lucrative.
He said: “When I complained to a friend, he introduced me to Mrs Benedict and since I met her, my life never remained the same.”
He said a male child was more expensive than female, disclosing that Madam Benedict paid him her as much as N600,000 for a male child and four N400,000 for female. But for each child brought by his wife, he said he used to make N200,000 gain.
“What we do is immediately we succeed in stealing a child, we send him/her to my boss who in turn sell to motherless babies home and to barren women. I was responsible for my landlord’s missing children. I sold them for N400,000 each in Mbatolu, Imo State.”
How we arrested Benedict —Police
Vanguard gathered that Mrs Benedict was arrested after the policemen who posed as pregnant women called her on phone to inform her that they had a baby boy for sale. But on arriving the designated point in Asaba, Delta State, the suspect who sensed trouble was said to have zoomed off with one of the police women in her car, in a bid to escape but was overpowered.
The suspects, according to Braide, would be charged to court soon.
On her part, the woman whom the couple sold 4-year-old Uchenna to begged the world to forgive her that she opted to buy the child following her inability to give birth to a child of her own.
“ I was married for 21 years without a child to call mine. Someone introduced me to Benedicta and when I told her I needed a child, she requested for N600,000 but I told her I could not afford that amount. She later called me to meet her at the River Niger bridge at Onitcha. On getting there he handed over the child to me. I told her he was too big but she said that was the only one she had.
I changed Uchenna’s name to Amarachi and enrolled him in a school where I pay N50,000 per term”, said the widow who simply gave her name as Patricia.
On her part, 35 year-old Benedicta Ogbonna, who is a mother of four said she was only involved in the act to help barren women. Asked why she did not offer her own children for sale, she kept mute.

Yesterday afternoon, a serving British soldier, was attacked and beheaded with a machete in broad day light at a street in Woolwich, South London by two men in what has been confirmed as a terror attack.
Two black men in a blue Vauxhall car rammed into the soldier on John Wilson Street, then jumped out of their car and started attacking him with meat cleavers. An eye witness said the attackers chopped the soldier to pieces…hacking at his body like it was a piece of meat. Witnesses also claimed that the men shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’, which means God is great in Arabic before attacking. After the attack, the men then waited for about 20 minutes for police to show up and then tried to attack the officers. They were shot by police.

The mother of two, a Cub Scout leader from Cornwall, added:
‘Being a Cub leader I have my first aid so when I saw this guy on the floor I thought it was an accident – then I saw the guy was dead and I could not feel any pulse.
And then when I went up there was this black guy with a revolver and a kitchen knife, he had what looked like butcher’s tools and he had a little axe, to cut the bones, and two large knives, and he said, ‘Move off the body’.
So I thought, ‘OK, I don’t know what is going on here’, and he was covered with blood. I thought I had better start talking to him before he starts attacking somebody else. I thought these people usually have a message so I said, ‘What do you want?’
‘I asked him if he did it and he said yes, and I said, “Why?” And he said because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries, he said he was a British solider and I said, “Really?” And he said, “I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan, they have nothing to do there”.’
Mrs Loyau-Kennett said that the attacker seemed to be ‘in full control of his decisions and ready to do everything he wanted to do’. She added:
‘I said, “Right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose, what would you like to do?” and he said, “I would like to stay and fight”.’

Me, I knew this porting thing will bring wahala…please read how The Sun is reporting it.
No fewer than five million subscribers of the four Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) in the country have ported from one network to the other. Prior to the Mobile Number Portability (MNP) launch, MTN Nigeria had the largest market share of 49 million subscribers, making it the market leader in the telecommunications industry.
On its heel was Globacom with over 25 million subscriber base, while Airtel Nigeria has well over 20 million, and the Etisalat Nigeria has 13 million subscribers. MNP is a service that enables subscribers to retain their mobile phone number when changing from one mobile service provider to another. The initiative was flagged off by the telecommunications regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to boost quality of service.
According to findings, Globacom and Etisalat Nigeria are worst hit by the porting, owing to several reasons ranging from poor quality of service to customers not able to have accessible customer care agents to register their complaints. Daily Sun source, who didn’t want his names in print, hinted that Etisalat is also currently raging, and has written a petition to the Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON) over MTN’s controversial advert on “I don port o”. MTN Nigeria used ‘Saka’, Hafis Oyetoro, a former ‘Face of Etisalat Nigeria’, to pass its MNP message to its teeming customers.
Click below to read more…
“Etisalat has issues that should have been managed before now. I am sure that about a million of its subscribers will have ported. The company will not reveal it and, if the network does not go the extra mile to improve its network, it may experience further depletion. It is not only by wooing subscribers with freebies, there should be a corresponding balance in network improvement,” he declared. He also added that the Second National Operator, Globacom is also experiencing a reduction, which is close to two million because the MNP was just an opportunity for its subscribers to legally move to other networks, saying, “Before now, the network has been poor and nothing significant was done by the company to improve on its network.”
Airtel Nigeria and MTN, according to the source , are also not enjoying the best of times, as their subscriber base have also been down by a million each. However, a stakeholder in the industry, Adebowale Johnson, explained that prior to the MNP introduction, the country has been a multiple network system, where citizens are encouraged to have more than one line by virtue of the poor network being experienced by subscribers. This, he said, is already a lifestyle. He advised that stronger marketing strategies may help the operators not to lose more of its subscribers.
“Like every new thing, people may want to defect to the other network to ascertain whether the network had actually improve or not. Like a Yoruba adage, if a woman has not been married to two husbands, she not know, who is best. “This is what I want to call mass exodus. They may still come back after making their personal decisions. I may not know the exact figures but I know that network operators will be licking their wounds,” he said. Another stakeholder, Obina Obienu, noted that MTN has a wider coverage and that no operator has broken that hold. And that despite the general complaints by subscribers of poor network, most of them have refused to abandon their first line.
“Though, almost everyone has more than one line but there is every indication that the advert may deplete the other’s subscriber base if not well defended. The real business men use MTN network, while most business centres operate from the Globacom platform and Etisalat is more a youth focused network, which have also been captured by MTN,” he added. However, President, Association of Telecommunication Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), Mr. Lanre Ajayi, hinted that it was too early to start making insinuations but that time will tell if truly people may port to MTN.
“I consider that as a creative advertisement, which is just MTN’s strategy. We don’t know other company’s strategies, may be ,we should wait before we start making comparison. But definitely, time will tell,” he assured. Buttressing Ajayi’s point, Ifeanyi Osusueke, a telecoms writer, explained that the advert itself has created different kinds of impression in the minds of people. Maintaining that a number of factors will facilitate porting and not just mere advert campaign.

For ages, the Romantic Lock Ceremony in Paris has been traditionally undertaken by lovers pledging to remain inextricably entwined forever.
But on Tuesday, Kim Kardashian was spotted at the famous Pont l’Archeveche bridge in Paris holding a padlock and about to lock together…the love of her mother…and not Kanye!
On the padlock, Kim wrote her initials alongside those of her mother Kris Jenner and placed it on the bridge. It would have been a touching move, if not that her baby daddy happened to also be in the same city at the time. And Kanye West would have been the appropriate person for Kim to make that vow with. So why wasn’t he there?
Don’t forget that Kim’s mum, Kris Jenner has been alleged to be overly controlling when it came to Kim’s life so that move just made the notion worse.
Click below to read more…
I understand sometime ago, Kim’s sister, Kourtney was keen to make a pledge to the father of her children, Scott Disick, at the same landmark. But Kourtney was left in floods of tears when Scott failed to show up at the bridge to perform the little ceremony. So she ended up writing on a lock with their son Mason, who was then two.
Later Scott realised his mistake, and they visited the bridge together with their son. They then shared a loving kiss as they threw their key into the river Seine after shutting the lock.
Kourtney wrote with a marker on a love lock the simple slogan, ‘Kourtney & Scott’, and when they made a vow with him to love each other forever as the two then threw the master key into the river.
Sweethearts are known to flock to the Paris romantic hotspot with millions visiting each year.
Other padlock tourist spots also include Mount Huang, China, where lovers lock their souls together and then throw the key over the edge of the cliff into the misty valleys below.
In Russia, so many newlywed couples have placed locks on the Luzhkov bridge in downtown Moscow, with authorities installing iron bar structures for them to hang padlocks on.

Emotions ran high, Tuesday, at Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, following startling revelations by suspected members of three syndicates, who specialised in selling human parts to herbalists and persons suspected to be clerics.
The suspects told a bewildered crowd that human heads were sold for N8,000; hands, N4,000 and private parts N10,000.
One of them, Agboola Kolawole, who blamed his indulgence on poverty and inability to pay his children’s school fees, disclosed that he had so far sold four heads of his deceased siblings to a herbalist, who in turn sold to some persons they identified simply as Alhajis.
The Alhajis, as gathered, offered to pay one of the suspects N40,000 to get a live human being, only for the suspect, Sanni Kazeem, to be apprehended during his search for prey.
Click below to read more…
Recovered from one of the arrested herbalists, identified as Ajibade Rafiu (40), who the suspects said they supply with the human parts, was a dried human finger suspected to be that of a lady, and a concoction, which he said was made from ground human head mixed with local gin.
The concoction, according to Rafiu, was to fortify him against spiritual attack.
Their arrest, according to the Command’s spokesperson, Ngozi Braide, followed a tip-off from the officer-in-charge of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja, Abba Kyari, that one of the suspects, Jamiu Adeleke, was at the verge of selling a human hand for N21,000.
The operatives, according to Braide, who paraded the suspects before newsmen, stormed Owode town, Ogun State, where Adeleke was arrested while attempting to sell the human hand to a buyer.
She said: “Adeleke confessed that one Sanni Kazeem sold it to him for N6,000. When Sanni was arrested, he also confessed to the crime, adding that he had supplied two human heads to a dealer named Akinwowo Fatai (30), who was also arrested.
Akinwowo, on his part, confessed to have received the human heads and another four human heads from another supplier, one Agboola Kolawole (40), who was later arrested in the same Owode town.”
Sources of ‘goods’
“Kolawole confessed that he cut the heads of his two late brothers and two late sisters buried in private graves in their compound and sold them for N8,000 each. The final buyer/receiver, one Ajibade Rafiu (30), a herbalist, was also arrested.
“During interrogation, the suppliers said they got their human parts from various grave yards in Ogun State, while the middlemen doubled the prices and sell to the herbalist, who is the end user.
“Sanni Kazeem also confessed that two popular Alhajis in the same Owode town had bought one head from him before and also requested for a live human being for N40,000.”
She added that the first suspect arrested, Adeleke, jumped out of a moving vehicle in his attempt to escape and sustained fatal injuries, which later resulted in his death, adding that effort was still on to arrest others indicted in the business.
‘Am in it for school fees’
One of the suspects, Agboola Kolawole, said: “Yes, I sold my dead siblings parts for N8,000 each. I was tempted to do that because of poverty and inability to pay my children’s school fees.
“Just as I was thinking of how to pay their school fees, a friend approached me and asked why I should be suffering when there was a way out. When I asked how, he said I should go and get some human parts that he would pay me.
“That was how I went to my late brother’s grave at night, exhumed the bodies of two of them and cut off the heads.
“When I took them to the friend, he gave me N16,000 and told me to get him four hands. This time around, I went to my late sisters graves and cut off their hands. I was paid N8,000 for a set of hands.”
‘I was offered N40,000 to get a human being’
Kazeem Sanni said he usually went to cemeteries to exhume dead bodies and cut off the needed parts.
He said: “The cemetery I usually frequent is CMS. I usually go there at night when the guards would have slept.
“I sell skull for N8,000 to Alpha Jamiu (Muslim cleric). So far, I have gone to the cemetery thrice to cut off human parts.
“Two weeks ago, he called to say that his clients needed a human being, promising to pay me N40,000. When I asked him how that was possible, he said he would give me a charm that would hypnotise the victim to facilitate his/her abduction.
“I told him I would think about it. But I never went back to him again because I felt I could not do that.”
However, it was gathered that Alpha Jamiu, the middleman, pays the supplier N8,000 but sells the parts thrice the amount to end users.
The herbalist, Ajibade Rafiu, told journalists that he bought a human head for N8,000, with an intention to prepare a fortification concoction for himself.
He said: “I burnt the human head and later ground it, poured it inside a plastic and added local gin and other roots. I prepared the concoction for myself.
“It is to fortify me against any attack because in this job if you are not fortified people may attempt to throw spiritual arrows at you. But with this, if anybody tries it, it will backfire.”

Nnanna Osondu is a young man with all the appetites of his age mates. But he would rather satisfy his sexual appetite, which he described as “large” with elderly women whom he raped.
Why? “None of these young girls around is ready to befriend me,” he claimed.
Nnanna Osondu of Opi community in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State recently stunned security operatives and other inhabitants of the agrarian community when he revealed his delight in raping women far past menopause.
Click below to read more…
Osondu, said to be in his early 30s, does no serious work for a living. It was reported that he had approached several young women in the community for friendship, but none reciprocated. So, he neither has a wife nor is he courting any one at the moment.
He could not even afford the ‘luxury’ of an hour with a call girl. Still, he wanted to satisfy his sexual urge.
In meeting his desire for sex, Osondu resorted to raping elderly women whom he later claimed were better than many young girls around. But having carnal knowledge of these elderly women, many old enough to be his grandmother, did not come cheap.
Osondu reportedly scouts round the community in the day time, for his prey, and once he gets them, he goes after them at night. Since the alleged rapist could not lure these elderly women with any material item, he reportedly threatened them with a knife he usually concealed in his trousers.
Apart from threatening to kill the elderly women should they refuse him sex, Osondu also carefully selected those women who live alone in their homes.
For months now, Osondu had successfully raped about a dozen elderly women whose age averaged 60 years old. Luck, however, ran out on Osondu Tuesday, last week, when a victim rebuffed his threat to kill her and managed to raise the alarm which drew the attention of passersby. That was around 4:30p.m on a bush path in the community.
It was reported that a day before Osondu planned to carry out his crime against the fair-skinned elderly woman, he had visited the woman pretending to want to buy an item from her.
The woman was reportedly alone at the time Osondu visited her. With the knowledge of the woman going to the market the following day to get some items into her shop, the rapist traced her to the market.
But on her way from the market, he reportedly waylaid the woman at a nearby bush brandishing his knife at the woman, and then asking her for sex. The woman, identity concealed, rebuffed his death threats and started shouting at the top of her voice hoping to attract attention.
The woman soon got help from other villagers returning from the market, who surrounded Osondu and gave him some beating before he was handed over to law enforcement agents. Osondu was later transferred to the Enugu State Criminal Investigations Department where he is reportedly cooperating with the police.
When confronted with the allegation that he was using the women for rituals, Osondu denied the allegation, but claimed that he only ‘used’ the women to satisfy his sexual urge.
“It is not true that I use the women for ritual. The truth is that I have a big appetite for sex and none of these young girls around is ready to befriend me. So I resolve to going for the elderly women,” he said.
Narrating his modus operandi, alleged rapist Osondu continued, “I always get the women in the night or in the bush mostly when they were returning from the market. If anyone wanted to resist me, I only use the knife to threaten them so that they can let me have my way. I never harm them with the knife.
The truth is that young ladies in this town make life difficult for you once you do not have money to spend on them,” he said. Ebere Amaraizu, Enugu State Police Command spokesman, who confirmed the incident, thanked members of the community for apprehending the suspect.
In this cover of Esquire Magazine, American actor, Brad Pitt can be seen looking as hunky as ever in a black top and wrinkled jeans, with aviator sunglasses covering his face. The star’s trademark long golden hair flops around his shoulder as he casually grips a camera in one hand.
In an interview with the new US issue of Esquire magazine, Brad revealed he felt he was wasting his life on drugs during his marriage to Jennifer Aniston. In yet another blow to his ex, he makes it clear that before he met Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004, his life had little meaning. Brad said:

“For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f***ing off.
But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany.”
Brad also spoke to Esquire about his decision to shrink his circle of friends he could spend as much time as possible with Angelina and their six children – Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – and he has never been happier. He admitted:
“I have very few friends. I have a handful of close friends and I have my family and I haven’t known life to be any happier.
I’m making things. I just haven’t known life to be any happier.”
The 49-year-old actor was married to Jennifer Aniston for seven years until 2005. Before then, Brad had dated Gwyneth Paltrow from 1994 to 1997. His other famous exes include Juliette Lewis and Robin Givens.

Apart from making you look like an MTN worker or a bumble bee, there’s everything to love about this combo.
It’s a straight cut, clean lines and bold. What I like about it is that it gives the wearer a serious, yet approachable look.
The look is finished with a pair of bad-ass dark sunglasses, black pumps and a black handbag.
For a deeva who’s as busy as a bee…it’s an exquisite look!
