Selena Gomez has described the essential factors she looks for dating during her interview in a UK based radio show on Monday. In the show, Jason Derulo asked Selena for tips to ask people out. Initially taken aback by the question, the actor-singer revealed her ideas about her ideal date.

In the interview, Selena stated about her liking towards group situations. Adding to it she put how she prefers people who are related to her as the acquaintance of someone whom she knows. 

Furthermore, the singer stated about the setbacks in her dating life caused by her stardom. The singer also talked about her wish to experience something genuine unaffected by her fame. Adding to it she said that she gets to know people and their intentions within a few minutes.

What does Selena look for in her ideal date?

Selena talked of the characteristics such as the sense of humor, fun-loving nature, etc. that she seeks for in her date. The singer started her preferences for funny, playful and adventurous men over the arrogant and show-off kind of men. She further stated her interest in cool and down to earth people.

However, the singer made it very clear that she does not want to be approached for her identity. Rather she looks forward to someone genuinely interested in her for who she is.

What did Selena answer to the question posed by the rapper Stormzy?

Apart from Jason, Rapper Stormzy also got to ask Selena in the interview. The rapper wanted Selena to answer how she felt to be the celebrity with the highest number of followers on Instagram.

Answering to Stormzy, Selena gently denied the fact that she is the most followed celeb. Furthermore, she stated that such things don’t bother her. 

Is the “Kill em’ with Kindness” singer currently dating?

Selena Gomez had been linked to Nial Horan following a dinner with the former member of the boy band ‘One Direction.’ However, the speculations seemed to be dismissed with Nial stating himself to be single.

All that matters to Selena is that the year was quite successful and she is satisfied with her hard work and persistence.

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

Raj Kapoor trying to convince someone he isn’t a bad person but there’s a twist

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.
