Published July 5, 2012 by luchidotcom

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has given in and and will now be re-posting those 14, 850 corps members sent to volatile Northern states.

According to Punch, it has directed the affected corps members to report at the NYSC headquarters for redeployment to states considered safe.

“A statement by the Director-General of the NYSC, Brig.-General Nnamdi Okore-Affia, in Abuja on Wednesday, directed corps members posted to Bauchi, Gombe, Plateau, Kano and Kaduna states to immediately report to the NYSC headquarters for redeployment. This came barely 24 hours after an earlier insistence by the NYSC that corps members posted to the affected areas must first report to camp before requests for redeployment could be considered.

“Okore-Affia has also directed all those deployed in Yobe and Borno states to report to new orientation camps in Nasarawa and Benue states respectively.”

Text of statement:

This is to inform all prospective corps members deployed to Yobe and Borno states for the 2012 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course to note the following: “Yobe State prospective corps members will now hold their orientation course at the Nasarawa State NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Keffi, Keffi LGA, and not as stated on their call-up letters. “Borno State prospective corps members will undertake their orientation programme at the Benue State NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp at Wanume, Tarka LGA, and not as stated on their call-up letters. “Date: Thursday 26th July-Thursday 16th August, 2012, as earlier published.

In addition, all 2012 Batch ‘B’ prospective corps members deployed to Bauchi, Gombe, Plateau, Kano and Kaduna states who have collected their call-up letters but are yet to report in camp should immediately report at the NYSC Directorate Headquarters, Abuja for redeployment.

Published July 5, 2012 by luchidotcom

The BET Awards is past but it was Beyonce’s outfit that caught my eye immediately ! She wore an amazing yellow dress from designer Stephane Rolland and Givenchy heels. Beyonce looked stunning she was my best dressed of the night no question.

She wore this beautiful gown with up to there slit and cinched it with a belt.

The only fault here is she kept holding up the down instead of letting it pour red carpet style.

Katie Holmes Files for Divorce from Husband,Tom Cruise

Published June 30, 2012 by luchidotcom

The marriage of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, one of Hollywood’s highest profile relationships and a subject of endless tabloid speculation, is over.

Holmes announced through a lawyer Friday that she had filed for divorce from her movie star husband of five years. The news surprised the entertainment industry, which counts Cruise as one of its most recognizable stars, and apparently the actor himself. Cruise learned Holmes had initiated divorced proceedings in New York while he was working on a film set in Iceland.

“Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out,” his publicist said in a statement.

British Singer,Adele is Pregnant!!

Published June 30, 2012 by luchidotcom

Singing sensation Adele announced Friday (June 29) that she is pregnant with her first child.

The Grammy-winning vocal powerhouse, 24, whose blockbuster album, 21, detailed the tumultuous end to her last relationship, is expecting a child with her boyfriend, 36-year-old Simon Konecki, a former financier and co-founder of the U.K. bottled-water company Life Water.

“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” Adele wrote in a blog post titled “I’ve Got Some News” on her website. “I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx”

The happy news comes after years of troubled romantic relationships, which Adele has famously committed to song. Tracks like “Someone Like You” and the Grammy-winning “Rolling in the Deep” from her blockbuster album 21 dealt deeply and explicitly with her breakup from her last boyfriend.

Konecki also heads Life Water’s charity, Drop4Drop, which brings clean water to developing countries. He has been married before, and after reports circulated earlier this year that he was still married when he and Adele began seeing each other, the singer was forced to address the rumors, writing on her website (via People), “Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years.”

21 has sold 9.3 million copies in the U.S. to date, according to Rolling Stone, making the set the biggest-selling record since Usher’s 2004 album Confessions. With the exception of her well-received performance at this year’s Grammy Awards, Adele has been taking it easy as she continues to recover from surgery related to a vocal cord hemorrhage.

Fashion Battle:Who Wore it Better

Published June 30, 2012 by luchidotcom

The ’90s pantsuit has wormed its way back to our wardrobes with a bang! Gone are the baggy jackets and heavy shoulder pads *shudder* the pantsuit is now making a statement on the red carpet. I knew we had a trend here on our hands when Blake Lively wore a red Micheal Kors pantsuit very similar to Freida Pinto’s Gucci look at the Trishna premiere. While Pinto’s suit was more burnt red, Lively’s was the right shade of fire-engine red.

I’m really torn on who wore it better. On one hand Blake’s look is a departure from her usual formula of either cleavage or legs on display on the red carpet. I love the strappy design of her Christian Louboutin shoes. However, I love how Freida accessorized her suit with that beautiful butterfly brooch. The striped Fendi baguette also adds a nice touch to the ensemble. Ack! I can’t decide.

What do you think?

Bollywood Sweet Hearts,Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor are Getting Married

Published June 28, 2012 by luchidotcom

#Drum roll* Saif and Kareena are finally getting hitched and a wedding date has been set.

There has been so much written about Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor‘s wedding, and after tons of rumors and dates being pushed back, it seems the family has finally settled on a date: October 16th, according to Sharmila Tagore.

It will, apparently, be a low-key wedding – there will possibly be a big reception afterwards for their industry friends, but as of now the wedding is strictly immediate-family-only. And as for a honeymoon… that’ll probably have to wait, because Kareena wants to get right back to her films (she’s shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Ram Leela immediately post Heroine).

Congratulations to the happy couple.
