Kim Kardashian taught Sean Borg how to take selfie pics

Hollywood is an exciting place, especially for anyone on the outside wanting in. We experience its glamour through social media and other news platforms, following the lives of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, and numerous other international stars.

So if you get the chance to pose for a selfie with someone as famous as Kim, you’d jump at it. Entertainment personality Sean Borg did just that back in April 2017, when the well-known Brit’ attended the Hollywood premiere of the Christian Bale movie — “The Promise.” Kim was at the event, along with her sister Kourtney.

Sean would often see Kim, 39, at clubs Hollywood such as Hyde and Les Deux, where Kim and Paris Hilton frequented

The former star of U.S. Fox TV news show told the Australian website — Best in AU: “Kim was always very down to earth. So it was a pleasant surprise to run into her at the film premiere that night.”

He said: “I hadn’t seen Kim for years until that night. I met her through Paris Hilton well over a decade ago, and way before she was famous. It was back when I was working on the TV show, TMZ.”

As Sean was walking the press line at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, Kim arrived at the same time.

He continued: “It was mayhem on the press line, the photographers were calling out my name as was I posing for a few pictures, then I heard them shouting out ‘Kim, KIM,’ I turned around, and there she was. Kim recognized me straight away and waved over at me.”

The 52-year-old, said: “I slowed down my pace along the press line so that Kim would catch up with me. I thought to myself, I had to have a selfie her. And why not?!”

“As Kim approached me, she gave me a big grin and said, “Heyyyyy. Everyone was looking in our direction.”

Kim laughed off Sean’s first attempt at taking a selfie with her

Sean then lifted his iPhone and asked the star to pose for a selfie. He said: “She was very relaxed about taking a picture with me and laughed at my first attempt, as it was an awful picture. Kim came out blurred.

“So then Kim gave me a little direction on how to take the second one. She told me to ‘hold it to the side for a better angle, and then slowly spin until I found my best light, she said. It worked! Well, Kim looks great in the picture, but me? — Um, not so much.”

During Sean’s quick, “perfect selfie” lesson, he recalled, Kim showed him how to hold the camera properly. “She told me I had it down, big time! ‘You’re good at this,’ she said.”

Kim did an excellent job teaching Sean the art of selfie-taking on the quick

“Considering we only had a minute’s lesson to take the picture before media and autograph hunters besieged her, I think she did an excellent job in giving me advice.”

“I think I still look horrible in the picture, but Kim looks great. And so she should. She is the Queen of taking selfies, sometimes it can be challenging to take a flattering photo of yourself, so who better to take direction from?” he giggled.

Sean, who recently quit showbiz journalism to work in lifestyle and travel television, has lived in LA after moving from the UK, he arrived in Tinseltown in the mid-90s.

It was rumored recently that Netflix TV chiefs in Mumbai want to meet with Sean to discuss potential travel TV opportunities. Borg, currently known for the Trivago advertisements in Europe, he plans to visit India for business meetings in early 2020.

Malavika Mohanan Shares a Thought-Provoking Post on How People Differentiate Between ‘Beautiful’ and ‘Ugly’

Since the last few days, we have seen how some celebs have come forward and expressed their views on Black Lives Matters. Some of them are even being trolled for speaking about on how every skin colour is beautiful, but they also turned out to be the ones who have promoted fairness creams. South actress Malavika Mohanan has shared a heart-wrenching post on how people differentiate between ‘beautiful’ and ‘ugly’. Malavika has mentioned in her post how ‘fair people are equated as beautiful and dark skinned people are equated as ugly’. From Priyanka Chopra to Disha Patani, This Twitter User Exposes Hypocrisy Of Bollywood Celebs Who Tweeted on #BlackLivesMatter But Have Endorsed Fairness Ads.

It has been ages since this war between the ‘fair’ and the ‘dark’ skinned people has been going on. But it is saddening to see how people, even in the 21st century, judge an individual according to his/her skin colour. There must have been many youngsters who must have heard the dialogue of not to drink tea or coffee, why? It makes the skin dark and hence one should avoid it. Malavika Mohanan has highlighted some similar incident that she came across once. She wrote, “When I was 14 yrs old, one of my closest friends at that point told me that his mother never let him drink tea because she had this weird belief that drinking tea darkened ones’ skin complexion, and when he asked for tea once she told him(referring to me) “If you drink tea, you will become dark like her”.

Malavika Mohanan further mentioned about the ‘discriminatory behaviour against South-Indians and North-East Indians’. About it she wrote, “Dark skinned Indians are jokingly referred to as ‘madrasis’ because for some strange reason these ignorant people think all South Indians are only dark skinned. North-East Indians are almost exclusively only called ‘chinki’, all black people are casually referred to as ‘negros’ and fair people are equated as beautiful and dark skinned people are equated as ugly.” Sai Pallavi Rejects a Fairness Cream Ad Deal Worth 2 Crores and All We Can Say is ‘You Go Girl!’.

Malavika Mohanan’s Post On ‘Casual Racism And Colourism’

When I was 14 yrs old, one of my closest friends at that point told me that his mother never let him drink tea because she had this weird belief that drinking tea darkened ones’ skin complexion, and when he asked for tea once she told him(referring to me) “If you drink tea, you will become dark like her”. He was a fair maharashtrian boy and I was a wheat-ish skinned malayalee girl. The complexion dissimilarity we had had never even occurred to me up until that point. This left me perplexed because it was the first time somebody had made a comment like that with a mean undertone about my skin colour. So much casual racism and colourism exists in our own society. Calling a dark skinned person ‘kala’ is something we see on an everyday basis. The discriminatory behaviour against south-Indians and North-East Indians is also appalling. Dark skinned Indians are jokingly referred to as ‘madrasis’ because for some strange reason these ignorant people think all South Indians are only dark skinned. North-East Indians are almost exclusively only called ‘chinki’, all black people are casually referred to as ‘negros’ and fair people are equated as beautiful and dark skinned people are equated as ugly. While we speak about global racism, we must also become aware about what’s happening around us, in our homes, our friend circles and our society, and do our part in thwarting the obvious as well as the subtle racism and colourism that exists all around us, in our everyday lives. What makes you beautiful is being a good and kind person, and not the colour of your skin. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

There are many who think that anything could be commented on a dark-skinned person, it is right to draw comparison between the fair and the dark, but no, it is not at all right. And Malavika Mohanan has clearly expressed it with this post.

Raj Kapoor Death Anniversary: 10 Songs Of

Raj Kapoor songs (Photo credit: Youtube)

Raj Kapoor, the greatest showman of the millennium, has given us some of the most riveting movies. All his movies served a message. Be it Shree 420 or Awara or Prem Rog or Satyam Shivam Sundaram, he liked his work to speak for itself. He established R K Films at the age of 21 with Aag, his first pairing with Nargis. Rest as they say is history. Rishi Kept Alive Bond of Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor: Saira Banu

Another beautiful aspect of his movies is the songs. As melodious as they were, they were never a hindrance to the plot. In fact, they were neatly placed in the narrative to take the story forward. On his death anniversary today, let’s talk about the songs that are many decades old but still manage to make us laugh, cry, and feel happy.

Awara hoon – Awara

This song simply explains what he really is. A free-thinker, liberated soul who loves himself and the people around.

Jeena isika naam hai – Anari

This song of Raj Kapoor is one of our favourites. Teaching the world how to live life by putting a smile on someone else’s face.

Pyar hua ikraar hua – Shree 420

This film has some of the best songs ever written in the history of Indian cinema but our heart beats for this rain-soaked Raj Kapoor-Nargis romance. This never gets old.

Yeh raat bheegi bheegi – Chori Chori

A much restrained Raj Kapoor in a film where he isn’t eccentric makes it one of his best films and of course his chemistry with Nargis. This song is majestic, although they are complimenting the night.

Sajan re jhoot mat bolo – Tessri Kasam

The lyrics are so poignant that it immediately hits home. That’s life said in just so many minutes.

Dost dost na raha – Sangam

How many times have you used this line on your regular day? Plenty, right! That’s why we said, his songs were unique which were always so spectacular to watch and hear.

Ruk ja o jaanewali – Kanhaiya

Dum deega deega – Chhalia

That’s how Mumbai celebrates the first rains after a heated summer all thanks to Raj Kapoor.

Ek din bik jayaga – Dharam Karam

One of the best songs we have ever heard is this. Raj Kapoor in his inimitable tells you one day we will all die but what will be left behind will be our words. This hits right where it should.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGYjHQbV1KE

Jeena yaha marna yaha – Mera Naam Joker

We doubt if there’s anyone who has not shed a tear or two while watching this song. It does something to your heart.

Do tell us which one is your favourite Raj Kapoor song.

Celebrities are joining the protests

Celebrities are joining the protests

In this episode:

  • From Virgil Abloh to Porsha Williams, stars are using their platforms to get involved in the protests – with mixed results.
  • Kylie Jenner may have blown her billionaire status by spending more than $100 million in real estate and a jet.
  • And back when he was just a young royal, Prince Harry had a secret Facebook account under his alter ego: Spike Wells.

      


Here’s a closer look at some of today’s stories:

Celebs get involved

While some stars, like Real Housewife of Atlanta Porsha Williams, are joining protests on the front lines, others are handling things differently.

Luxury designer Virgil Abloh is being dragged by protesters for being cheap in supporting their cause. Abloh, 39, is the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collection and CEO of the trendy label Off-White.

Abloh posted on his Instagram Stories that he had donated $50 to protesters in need of bail money during the days-long upheaval across the country. In Los Angeles, the RSVP Gallery, which sells his brand, was looted.

“The Miami community ~ I’m crazy inspired. For kids in the streets that need a bail funds [sic] for George Floyd protests,” he wrote in the Story, along with a string of posts about the looting taking place at luxury shops like his. “If it heals your pain, you can have it,” he wrote.

Other celebrities have publicly shared their donation amounts or support for the movement in recent days — Chrissy Teigen upped her original $100,000 donation to a bailout fund to $200,000 after receiving backlash from her followers.

Kylie

Kylie Jenner spent more than $100 million on a huge private jet and multiple monster real estate deals in recent months. Could her spending be part of the reason billionaire status was blown?

On Friday, Forbes published a bombshell report stripping Kylie, 22, of her “youngest-ever self-made billionaire” title, claiming she faked tax returns and used a “web of lies” to boost her net worth.

The magazine said the makeup mogul is now worth less than $900 million after factoring Kylie Cosmetics’ revenue in public filings and the economic effect the coronavirus has had on the beauty industry.

Her lawyer, Michael Kump, countered that the story is “filled with outright lies … Forbes’ accusation that Kylie and her accountants ‘forged tax returns’ is unequivocally false.”

Just call him ‘Spike Wells’

Back in the day, Harry is said to have secretly created a Facebook account under the alter ego “Spike Wells” — a reference to Harry’s onetime nickname Spike.

This was back when he was still dating Chelsy Davy.

The now-deleted account, according to the Mirror, had over 400 friends “including some of the UK’s wealthiest and most glamorous socialites” and listed interest as “all sports.”

The account was active from 2008 to 2012 and listed Wells’ hometown as Maun, Botswana — a favorite of Harry’s. It also featured photos of Prince Harry and his then-girlfriend, Davy as well as one of “three young men in matching Panama hats, one of whom bore an uncanny resemblance to Harry,” the Mirror noted.

Other profile photos included a red-headed child holding his head, captioned: “Oh my God, I’m ginger.”
