Oprah Goes Natural: Makeup Free et All While Showing Off Her Wig Collection

The usually glamorous star has been seen wearing some of the less than flattering hairpieces as she films her new movie The Butler.
The Colour Purple star plays Gloria Gaines in the historical drama – the first time she will appear as a character other than herself since 1998′s Beloved.
She has been filming scenes with co-star Lenny Kravitz and Cuba Gooding Jr in New Orleans.
The star-studded film tells the tale of a White House butler who serves eight Presidents over the course of three decades.
 Her hair seems to be on Oprah’s mind recently.
This week saw her grace the cover of her self-titled O magazine, showing  off her natural hair in all of its glory.
In the snap, the 58-year-old proudly models her curly tresses with a big smile.
She also shows off her curves in a dress by Badgley Mischka paired with earrings by Alexis Bittar and a ring by Jordan Alexander.

David Beckham a washing tub for Esquire and thanked his fans on Facebook

David Beckham, Esquire

David Beckham knows what beloved of women.
No chocolate or flowers, but a picture of David Beckham. Doing something.Anything. Until we see it.
So when the British soccer star wanted to thank his fans on Facebook - 20 million of his fans - he gave them exactly what they wanted. And in form, he also posed for the British edition of the magazine Esquire taking a sexy pose.
David Beckham
But first, the Facebook gift. When you are officially loved by 20 million people - equivalent to one third of the UK population, or about three times the number of Londoners - it is customary to give something in return.
Then M. Victoria Beckham has posted a picture on his profile, thanking all his fans. We do not see at all what he wears but is not ashamed to say who cares.
Lets kick.
Beckham is also one of the September issue of Esquire UK. Expect lots of jeans, raglan sleeves, tattoos and looks away.
This David, he does not hesitate to give of himself!

10 Prisoners Qualify For The University After Passing WASSCE

Ten inmates of the Nsawam Maximum Security Prison and the Kumasi Central Prison are to commence their tertiary education after they wrote and passed the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in November/December 2011.
Four of the inmates: two males and two females from the Kumasi Central Prison passed with distinction and qualified for admission to any university in Ghana, while six others have qualified for the polytechnics and the colleges of education.
However, because they cannot attend regular school due to their status as prisoners, the Prisons Service is collaborating with the Centre for National Distance Learning and Open Schooling (CNDLOS), the Commonwealth of Learning and some universities in Ghana to roll out a distance learning programme that will lead to the award of diplomas and degrees in some of the country’s prisons.
The Officer in charge of Inmates Education at the Prisons Headquarters in Accra, Superintendent Afari Mintah, throwing light on the achievements of the 10 inmates, said they had been beneficiaries of the President’s Special Initiative on Distance Learning (PSIDL) which was introduced in some prisons in 2008.
He said prior to 2008, education at the prisons had been informal, with special emphasis on religion as a ‘tool’ to reform them, but the PSIDL (now CNDLOS) afforded the prisons Service an opportunity to kick-start formal education.
“We started with skills acquisition such as catering, hairdressing, carpentry, block-laying and basketry before we introduced junior high school (JHS) education,” Supt Mintah said.
The JHS education, he said, began on a pilot basis with 60 inmates from the Nsawam Medium Security, the Kumasi Central prisons and the Ankaful Main Camp, before it was extended to the Tamale Central and the Wa Central prisons. He added that the educational backgrounds of inmates were evaluated before they were put in the appropriate classrooms.
The inmates, he explained, were taught voluntarily by prison officers and other inmates who had the requisite knowledge in the various subjects.
“Some of the inmates have first degrees, while others have master’s degrees, so they help to teach the classes,” he said.
According to Supt Mintah,
“in 2010, the Prisons Service registered 35 adult prisoners and 20 juveniles from the Senior Correctional Facility for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and they all passed with aggregates between 11 and 24; some of them even gained admission to conventional senior high schools,”.

Beyonce Leaving Jay-Z For D’Banj

I saw this in a magazine, and I thought that it would be funny to share with you all.  Hope you got a good laugh like I did. Some people can really lie sha....lolz

Jay-Z And Beyonce Spend $400,000 For One Month’s Rent!

jay beyonce hireApparently, vacationing on a yacht in St. Tropez wasn’t lavish enough for music power couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Now that they have the adorable 6-month old princess Blue Ivy in tow, they’ve decided to upgrade.
In August, Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Carter will rent a 31,000-square-foot estate in the Hamptons for $400,000, according to the New York Post. The house’s monthly rent is $128,000 higher than the 2010 average sales price of a U.S. home.

The $43.5 million dollar abode comes with ample amenities — rock-climbing wall, recording studio, two-lane bowling alley, virtual golf and skateboard half-pipe.
The 60-foot heated pool is equipped with an underwater stereo system. It also has a gym, spa, combo basketball, racquetball and squash court, and garage that can store eight cars.
The master bedroom suite is 2,800-square-feet, bigger than most homes. And while the 11-acre property is large enough to accommodate guests, the lot includes a separate two-bedroom apartment.
Built by developer Joe Farrell, the Bridgehampton mansion located on Halsey Lane is also known as Sandcastle. A name like Sandcastle is quite fitting for baby Carter.
Jay-Z has been visiting The Hamptons for no less than 10 years. He’s attended parties hosted by the likes of Sean “Diddy” Combs and pals, and celeb couple Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, who own homes in the exclusive section of Long Island, New York.

Beyonce to Direct and Star in Her Own Documentary Movie

Singer-turned-actress (or vice versa) is a very common occurrence in Tinseltown. However, if a singer wants to be a filmmakerdirecting a documentary would probably be a challenge in its own right. Beyonce wants to break into the directing world, and she’s been shopping a documentary film to some of Hollywood’s renowned studios that focuses on her busy life and career.
The Los Angeles Times also reported that Beyonce won’t just be directing. She’ll also be producing and, of course, starring in the production. The documentary will combine concert footage and also behind-the-scenes peeks at Beyonce’s life. She’s currently a mother, a superstar, and a business mogul.
Beyonce previously starred in MTV’s mini-documentary titled “Beyonce: Year of 4,” which tells the story of her return to the studio to record her new album.
