Congratulations! Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are engaged

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are said to be ‘engaged’ following a three-year on-off romance.

Fan accounts were going wild on Friday after a Facebook account claiming to belong to Katy’s mother shared screenshots of the reported proposal from Valentine’s Day.

In the snaps, which were captioned: ‘look who got engaged last night’, Katy can be seen crying as she stands under a heart-shaped arch, while posing in the actor’s arms.

Another shot shows the pair looking emotional while standing on stage, as Orlando takes to the microphone.

Katy looks incredible wearing a pink Alessandra Rich dress as she cosies up to the handsome star who appears to have presented her with a pink vintage ring.

Her nails were painted pink to match the ring and she had diamantés stuck on one talon.

Clearly in the mood for Valentine’s, she wears giant heart-shaped earrings, with a sparkling heart belt around her waist.

Spokespersons for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are yet to comment so it’s unclear if the engagement is genuine.

In an interview with Paper Magazine just days ago, Katy said: ‘I’m very pragmatic and logistical and I am less fantastical about things… I mean, I was married when I was 25…

‘I’m 34. It was almost 10 years ago. I was like, ‘One person for the rest of my life,’ and I’m not so sure that that idea is for me. I’m just such a different person than I was.’

On her ill-fated marriage to Russell Brand she told W Magazine: ‘I really loved it. It was a new, fun, exciting journey.

‘I like how I am now, and I think all things happen for a reason.’

Katy and Orlando made their first red carpet appearance since reuniting in September 2018.

They broke up in March 2017, issuing a joint statement saying they were ‘taking respectful, loving space at this time.’

The couple couldn’t stay apart for long though and were spotted back together on holiday in Japan in December that year.

They told the world they were officially back on in February 2018.

Congratulations! Oscar award winner Jennifer Lawrence is engaged

Jennifer Lawrence is engaged to Cooke Maroney after eight months of dating.

The Oscar winning actress, 28, confirmed she is to marry the New York art gallery director, 34, on Tuesday after he popped the question with a ‘giant rock’.

The happy news comes after the couple were spotted dining together in New York at Raoul’s, with Jennifer seen showing off a ‘giant rock’ on her finger.

A source who witnessed the scene told PageSix the two and their pals were definitely celebrating something.

The star’s representative later confirmed the engagement to multiple outlets.

The two were introduced by Jennifer’s best friend Laura Simpson and have been dating for eight months.

‘It was a giant rock. They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it,’ said the source.

‘The ring was very noticeable. They were sitting back in a corner. She was wearing a cute black dress with white polka dots.’

Cooke works at New York’s Gladstone Gallery, which represents artists including Lena Dunham’s dad, Carroll Dunham, as well as Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, and Bjork’s ex, Matthew Barney.

He is known on the art party scene and previously worked at the prestigious Gagosian gallery.

While he is now very much part of the New York social scene, Cooke, like his new fianceé grew up in the countryside, spending his childhood on his parent’s farm in Vermont.

Maroney’s father was an art dealer in Manhattan and previously served as the Head of American Paintings at Christie’s before the family decided to move to the country.

While neither Jennifer or Cooke have spoken publicly about their relationship, insiders have gushed about their chemistry, with a source telling People in August: ‘She is smiling like I have never seen her do with any of her previous boyfriends’.

For Jennifer, the romance begun just months after she split from Mother! director Darren Aronofsky, 49, in November 2017 after dating for about a year.

It has been claimed that their age gap caused a problem in their romance, as well as Jennifer admitting they were never able to switch off from talking about work.

Before the director, Jennifer enjoyed a romance with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, beginning in August 2014, just five months after his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow filed for divorce.

The a-list couple dated for four months before they broke up the first time in October of that year before reuniting in December and breaking up again in August 2015.

Jennifer’s longest relationship was with her co-star Nicholas Hoult, enjoying a on/off five year relationship after they met on the set of X-Men First Class in 2010.

The Kentucky-born actress and British star were together for three years before a brief split in 2013, only to reunite both off and onscreen in X-Men: Days of Future Past ahead of their final August 2014 split.

In November 2015, the actress candidly reflected on the relationship, which ended around the same time she wrapped her hit Hunger Games film franchise.

‘I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years and we broke up around the same time I wrapped the movies. Being 24 was this whole year of, “Who am I without these movies? Who am I without this man?”‘ she told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer.

Nicholas welcomed a child with his lingerie model girlfriend Bryana Holly last year.

While many of her past romances have been conducted under the gaze of the world, Jennifer and Cooke have enjoyed their romance away from the public eye, taking low-key trips to Europe and being spotted on dinner dates in Cooke’s home city of  New York.

While they haven’t walked a red carpet together, in September Jennifer took Cooke with her to the New York Film Festival premiere of The Favourite — which stars her ex Nicholas Hoult and her close friend Emma Stone.

Also in attendance was the actress’ other ex Darren Aronofsky.

Jennifer has been open about her journey to finding the one in past interviews, telling Vogue in 2015: ‘I can’t wait to be married.’

‘I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f**k it up,’ before quipping: ‘But I’m also not banking on that.’

The actress, who counts the likes of Adele, Emma Stone and Taylor Swift among her close friends, has firm views when it comes to the details of her big day, telling Vanity Fair in 2016 that she won’t be having bridesmaids when she walks down the aisle.

‘Weddings rock, but I will never be a bridesmaid again,’ she explained. ‘There needs to be a bridesmaids’ union. It’s horrendous. If anyone asks me again, I’m going to say, “No. That part of my life is over. I appreciate the ask.” If I do ever get married, I don’t think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?’

Public PROPOSAL Goes Completely WRONG! Kenyan Lady REFUSES To Accept Her Boyfriend’s Proposal For Calling Her This (VIDEO)

Every woman’s dream is to finally see the love of her life go down on one knee to propose. Anyone watching the couple holds their breathe in anticipation, waiting for the magic words ”Yes I will’.

But have you ever thought; what if she refuses his proposal. Well that is the dilemma facing one dude whose proposal to his love has gone viral.

A Kenyan man was left heartbroken after his long time girlfriend refused to accept his proposal in a public restaurant in Nairobi, which was not only embarrassing but also very hurtful.

From the video, the man is left stranded and speechless after the lady runs out of the fast food joint, as the disappointed crowd looks on in surprise and shock.

The young man decided to go down on one knee as they were eating with his girlfriend and a couple of other friends. The girl was so surprised that she couldn’t hold back her tears, but one thing made her not say ‘yes’ to her hunk boyfriend.

black-women-rejecting-marriage-proposal

Apparently, the guy asked his beautiful woman if she would be his “future ex wife” which got her confused. The couple has been together for 6 years.

The lady then hesitates for a while then takes some time to think about it, as the crowd cheers her on, telling her to say yes, but eventually, she nods her head and says ‘no’ and runs out of the restaurant.

The unlucky man is left there stranded and then gets back on his feet in disbelief, a move even his friends didn’t anticipate. Well, here’s the video of the public proposal which went completely wrong somewhere in the Nairobi CBD.

Maybe this is a lesson to men, you can’t ask the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with if she wants to be your future ex-wife. Who wants to get married to a man who will eventually leave or get in a marriage which you know won’t work in the long run.

 

Hunk Nigerian Singer Banky W Proposes To His On-Screen Lover And Their Love Story Is Out Of This World!

Nigerian R&B Singer, Bankole Wellington aka Banky W, has left the bachelor’s club after he proposed to Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi.

The singer, took to Instagram to express his deep affection for her since they met officially in 2015, where he disclosed that on February 2017, he asked the gorgeous actress to be his wife and she said “Yes”.

His post read in part, “Dear Susu, we crossed paths 2 or 3 times since 2012, but I wasn’t paying enough attention.

banky-w-proposal

“Destiny was staring me right in the face and I was too caught up in my own hustle and paper chase, to know it. In June 2015 however, God brought you my way again, and this time, I really SAW you. I was smitten by your grace, aura, and beauty.

“I asked one or two people about you.. your manager Isioma, who I’d worked with previously, and then I did some research myself. Googled you, stalked your Instagram.. the whole 9 yards, and the more I found out, the more you seemed like a breath of fresh air.”

According to him, he knew pretty early in the process that he wanted to spend forever with her and he had prayed fervently about it while he waited for her to catch up.

The singer also made reference to his music video, Made For You in which he got engaged to Adesua, as well as their roles in hit movie, The Wedding Party describing both experiences as pure coincidence.

“Real life will now imitate art,” he, added.

In a bid to put away any doubts that this is indeed true, Banky said: “The timing of this, may make some people think this is promo for another video, or a movie. It isn’t.”

“Ironically, everyone who has seen us together in art, or in life, always insists that we have amazing chemistry. I guess you can say we have been hiding in plain sight. I fell in love with an Actress. Now my life is a movie,” he added.

The beautiful actress also confirmed this in her post on Instagram, which partly read; “He slid into my DM and sent the funniest message and that was how we became friends.

“At the time, I wasn’t interested in anything but a friendship and he was very respectful of that and so we stayed just friends for about a year and a half. Our friendship opened my eyes to a lot of things. Opened my eyes to the type of man Olubankole is and WHAT A MAN.”

Check out the full posts below.

Dear Susu (part 1) We crossed paths 2 or 3 times since 2012, but I wasn't paying enough attention. Destiny was staring me right in the face and I was too caught up in my own hustle and paper chase, to know it. In June 2015 however, God brought you my way again, and this time, I really SAW you. I was smitten by your grace, aura, and beauty. So smitten infact, that even though I didn't get to say a word to you that day (because you were seated far across the room), I immediately called my best friend @captdemuren and told him I'd found my next girlfriend. LOL. He laughed. I asked one or two people about you.. your manager Isioma, who I'd worked with previously, and then I did some research myself. Googled you, stalked your instagram.. the whole 9 yards, and the more I found out, the more you seemed like a breath of fresh air. Now I personally don't like being "hooked up", so I decided to approach you myself by sliding into your DM a few days later. Introduced myself, made some silly attempts to make you laugh, told you I planned to become your biggest fan, and asked if we could be friends. Thank God you laughed at my silly jokes, and thank God you graciously agreed to become my friend. At the time, I was COMPLETELY lying about only wanting to be friends, by the way.. but I figured it was a safe place to start. Since that DM, I've spoken to you pretty much every single day for almost 2 years. Sometimes, in the morning, at night and in between. We clicked instantly, and you quickly became one of my favourite people on earth, and one of my closest friends. It got to the point where my day wouldn't quite feel right without speaking to you. I needed your friendship. I needed, and still need, the bond we share. It completes me. I knew pretty early in the process that I wanted to spend forever with you. Prayed about it fervently. But it took you FOREVER (okay fine.. maybe a year and a half or so) to see things my way. But I kinda knew all along.. I was just waiting for you to catch up. (To be continued pls read part 2)

Dear Susu (part II) In that time, I got engaged to you in my "made for you" music video… and by pure coincidence, we both got cast to get married in the wedding party movie.. but all the while we were the very best of friends. I guess, in our case, real life will now imitate art. I'm not sure what the future will bring, but I'm completely sure that I am ready to face it with you by my side. I pray that God continues to build me into the kind of man that you deserve. I love you Susu.. I feel safe and at peace with you. You mean the world to me. Thank you for agreeing to be my lover and best friend. Thank you for agreeing to be my wife. PS: The timing of this may make some people think this is promo for another video, or a movie. It isn't. Ironically, everyone who has seen us together in art, or in life, always insists that we have amazing chemistry. I guess you can say we have been hiding in plain sight. I fell in love with an Actress. Now my life is a movie. In February of 2017, I asked Adesua Tolulope Oluwaseun Etomi to be my wife. She said Yes.

A post shared by Banky W. (@bankywellington) on

I went to an event in 2015 and I suppose that was the beginning of something amazing because once banky saw me, he decided that he was going to be my biggest fan. He slid into my DM and sent the funniest message and that was how we became friends. At the time, I wasn’t interested in anything but a friendship and he was very respectful of that and so we stayed just friends for about a year and a half. Our friendship opened my eyes to a lot of things. Opened my eyes to the type of man Olubankole is and WHAT A MAN. WHAT A MIGHTY GOOD MAN. Olubankole, Your Heart is pure and good, to the very core. You are proof that God is real, you are proof that what’s on the inside is greater and so much more powerful than what we see on the outside and you are the evidence of what I hoped for. I bless God for entrusting my heart in your hands because I know it’s safe. You are everything i prayed for and so much more. Thank you for praying with me, fasting with me, always making time for me, laughing with me, and caring more about me than yourself. Thank you for being kind, loving and full of Integrity.
And i’d like to say one more thing. I’m SO SORRY that it took me sooo long to realise that it was you. It has always been you. It couldn’t have been anyone else. In February 2017, you said you couldn’t be without me and asked me to be your wife and I said YES cause I can’t be without you. It will be an absolute pleasure and one of the greatest blessings of my life to walk the path of life with you. Thank you for being who you are.
My goodluck charm, my King, my lover, my bestfriend.
I love you till eternity and beyond.
No, This Is not a movie.
Future Mrs W.

Mariah Carey’s Wedding Plans To Australian Tycoon Allegedly Put On Hold

Mariah Carey has been on cloud nine ever since she got engaged to Australian billionaire James Packer, back in January, but it looks like there is a storm brewing.

Though Mariah previously said she was hoping for a quick wedding, it turns out she may not get her way thanks to some friction with her future mother-in-law.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Mariah and her Australian boo have put their wedding on hold because the singer and Packer’s mother, Ros Packer, can’t see eye-to-eye on the details.

mariah_fiance__1459156801_84111

Mama Packer has reportedly been “putting on a happy face” about the engagement when secretly she’s not thrilled about having an internationally famous diva in the family.

“They are very different women. Ros is a woman raised in the country with very traditional values who has maintained a dignified silence for all the years she and Kerry [James’ dad] were in the spotlight” an insider told the Herald.

But that’s not all: the guest list is also allegedly causing problems. While Mariah is looking for an intimate wedding with only 50 or so guests, the small number means leaving Packer’s closest friends and family off the list.

The current guest list is reportedly mostly made up of “Carey’s Hollywood posse” while James’ sister, Gretel, and his niece and nephews may not make the cut.

Even with all the money, it looks like family issues are inevitable! Hopefully, the in-laws drama doesn’t derail Mimi from her happy ending.

Christmas Day Is The Most Popular Day To Propose

Many men plan engagements on different days of the year, some choose significant days like their birthdays or valentines day so that they don’t forget while others choose random days.

According to Facebook Christmas day is the most popular for proposing followed by New Year’s eve as Valentine’s comes at number four.

The social media site with over a billion members, got the figure by analyzing 2.6 million users and how their relationship statuses changed.

The findings are similar to a recent survey of 10,000 people by experience website Chillisauce.

The website’s poll found that 40 per cent of people believe that the Christmas period is the most popular time for wedding proposals.

The night before Christmas meanwhile topped the list for the best day to surprise a partner with a proposal. 

However, while many appear to agree that Christmas eve is a romantic time to pop the question, 29 per cent of women surveyed said they would prefer to be asked on Valentine’s Day, The Evening Standard reported. 

A further fifth of women would prefer to get engaged on the anniversary of the day they met their other half, according to The Huffington Post.

Here’s Why You Are Not Ready For Marriage

You may have dated someone for the longest time and then decide that you want to marry them. A marriage is different from a relationship and is a lifetime commitment. How do you tell you are ready to marry? There are things that you need to make things work. However if all you have in common with your partner is any of the traits below then think again:

Good sex is all you have in common – As great as sex is, if your relationship isn’t built on a stronger foundation, it will crumble. No matter how much your toes curl and your eyes roll back in your head, there will come a time where you will need more. Make sure you have that “more” before getting married!

Holding on to the past – If you are bringing up the past issues of your relationship every time you get into a disagreement, then it probably means you haven’t gotten over them. It also means you don’t need to get into a marriage while still holding on to unresolved issues. Let it go!

You don’t have a religious or spiritual plan – Spirituality will be crucial in holding your marriage together because it provides the necessary tools along with an effective game plan to make it successful. If you aren’t on the same page spiritually, the foundation will crumble.

No compromise – If you are still very selfish and stubborn and you believe there is only one way and that’s YOUR way then you won’t survive in a marriage. Learn to compromise before the wedding.

Poor communication – You always hear people say that communication is the key to marriage, yet so many times people enter marriage without knowing what good communication really looks like. If you still believe that confrontation, criticism, and conflict is “communication,” then you might want to brush up on those skills first because you WILL need them.

You’re insecure – In a marriage, trust is everything. If you don’t have it, then find it before you say “I DO.”

You aren’t financially stable – to get that way going into a marriage financially strained can be the beginning of the end to a marriage. Financial struggles cause emotional struggles which lead to mental and physical struggles. Get your finances in order and have a plan to succeed with your dollars and cents.

Crossover 101’s Faith Muturi Says Yes After 3 Different Proposals

Are You Wondering Why He Hasn’t Proposed Yet? Here’s Why

You have dated for sometime now and everyone says that it’s time to tie the knot. You also feel that the time has come to cement your relationship with him.

However he doesn’t seem to eager to pop that question and you are left wondering why.

Well here are possible some reasons why he hasn’t asked to marry you yet:

Commitment Phobia – Many men are afraid of moving from bachelorhood. Most men dread the word ‘commitment’. To them, it means being restricted from all the pleasures of life, and an end to their freedom. Making him understand that not much will change after marriage, can be a good way to get him out of the commitment phobia

He is waiting for his parents’ approval – There are men who would not marry unless they get consent from their parents. If he is a family guy, he might not want to go against the wishes of his parents. He might be planning to set up a meeting or something to introduce you to them.

Responsibility scares him – Being responsible for someone else, when he still needs someone to pick up after him scares him. Making him understand that you two are in it together and will work as a team, might calm him down.

He still has feelings for his ex-girlfriend –Has his ex been in the picture over the time you have been dating? Have you noticed him talking about his past girlfriend quite often? That might be what is holding him back. It is thus advised to be cautious.

He has to wait for his elder sibling to be engaged first. This is very common in the African setting, although there are those who would still get married, others will wait until their elder siblings tie the knot.

He wants to achieve a little more in life professionally/financially – Most men settle when they feel that they have achieved a certain goal. He wants to be financially secure before he asks for your hand in marriage, to give you a comfortable and wonderful life. Men love being the providers hence it’s important.

He wants to ask your parents before he pops the question to you – An honorable man will want the blessing of the lady’s parents before marriage. He knows that you will say yes, but getting your parents’ approval first is so gentleman like of him. Yes, consider yourself lucky to have met a guy that we thought no longer exists!

Reason Why You Are Not Ready For An Engagement

You guys have been together for quite some time and you think that he will pop that question or he thinks it’s time to pop that question.

But are you really ready to be engaged and are you ready to put a ring on it? It may seem like the right thing to do at the moment but is it really what you want?

If you find yourself thinking along these lines then an engagement might be the last thing you need.

You are following the masses – Ask yourself if this is what you really want or if it’s what society really wants. With wedding stuff basically being shoved in our faces since we were little girls, it’s easy to get caught up in the fairy-tale ideal. And the fact that half of our friends are married it doesn’t make things easier so you feel like you should bow to the pressure.

You don’t often think about a future with your partner – Kind of an obvious one — if it’s difficult for you to picture a real future with your partner, for whatever reason — marriage (which is permanent, let me remind you) is a not-so-great idea.

You have a general sense of restlessness – If you feel antsy all the time, like you’re stuck in a cage, waiting to be liberated — odds are, taking those vows would be a serious mistake. To be honest, it sounds like you may need to be single for a while.

The idea of “forever” really freaks you out – The word evokes a weird reaction in you whenever someone says it, kind of like you’re having a mini panic attack. Maybe it’s not quite that extreme, but even so . . . if “forever” freaks you out, do. Not. Get. Engaged.

You don’t have total trust in your partner – you still rummage through your partner’s phone every single time he or she jumps in the shower, and you don’t even know why. It could be harmless curiosity, but it’s most likely that you just don’t have enough trust built up to sustain any sort of effective relationship, let alone marriage. (Yeah, the truth kind of hurts sometimes.)

You often imagine a different life for yourself – You visualize what your life would be like without your partner more times than makes you comfortable. Who would you end up with? What would it be like? Would it be better? Pro tip: freeze right there in your tracks. You are, without a doubt, not ready to be married. In fact, you might want to reassess your current relationship, because maybe, just maybe, it’s time to see what else is out there. And there’s no shame in that!

Bride Helps Plan Her Friend’s Engagement During Her Wedding (Video)

What are the chances that a bride would want to share the happiest day in her life with someone else? It’s highly unlikely right?

In a rare occurrence a bride helped one of her friends who happened to be on her line up get engaged.

The wedding ceremony had been completed and as usual the bride was to  throw the bouquet, but she walked straight up handed it over to her friend and then turned her around to meet her boyfriend who was ready with a ring.

The 9 Emotional Stages of Finding Out Your Ex Got Engaged

It’s a normal day at the office, and you’re hard at work scrolling through Facebook feed when suddenly it blindsides you like an anvil in a cartoon: He. Got. Engaged. What? No. Yes. How? When? Why? Of course, you realize that he’s human and planning to marry someone seems to be what humans do at this stage in your life. To be honest, though, a part of you never thought this would actually happen, and you definitely never began to foresee this cocktail of emotions that has you stunned and frozen in your desk chair. Here are nine feelings you can expect to experience when he gets a fiancée.

1. Shock
Before you can begin to process any other emotions, you’re going to have to get past this one. Are you living in some bizarre universe? Is this a prank? Why is your whole body tingling?

2. Jealousy
Yes, he once went eight months without taking the trash out. Sure, he called multiple waitresses “babe” in front of you. Still, you guys had something at one point, and that could have been you getting proposed to on a Jumbotron.

3. Anger
Three words just keep running through your mind: W.T.F. Now he decides he doesn’t have a crippling fear of commitment? Now he’s agreed to shave off that horrendous goatee? Where was this guy four years ago? At the very least, he owes you money back for all the “grown-up” work shoes you bought him.

4. Relief
Once you get past the anger and jealousy that comes with the deep-seated thought that that should have been you, you take a deep breath and realize that could have been you. Oof. Those boring stories. That horrible snoring problem. You really dodged a bullet here.

5. Amusement
You wouldn’t normally laugh at someone else’s misfortune, but the thought of this new girl spending an entire lifetime with him and his collection of figurines is even funnier than the fact that you once dated a grown man who collects dolls.

6. Pity
Really, though, this poor girl doesn’t know what she just got into. A part of you wants to message her and tell her you’re there for her the next time he spends 17 hours in a row playing video games. The other part of you realizes all’s fair in love and horrible life decisions.

7. Dread
This engagement bomb is bad enough, but you quickly realize that this is just the beginning. The next year is going to be a parade of their engagement pictures, gushy statuses about each other, and finally, pictures of the big day. You’d consider hiding his feed, but you like knowing what he’s up to and always wish the best for him. (By “the best” you mean that he’ll gain 20 pounds and get fired.)

8. Nostalgia
It was over the day you threw his suitcase out of your car, but this seals the deal once and for all: You guys are permanently done, son. This is a good thing. There’s no doubt about that. Still, that time you guys rode the Ferris wheel on the boardwalk was pretty cute. And no one can make enchiladas like him. You’ll always have that Phish documentary he made you sit through.

9. Smugness
Let him have a wedding. Let her keep posting close ups of the ring. You are a free woman who’s not tied down by anyone. Maybe you’ll go dancing tonight. Maybe this weekend you’ll take a spontaneous trip to wherever and marry a stranger. Maybe it’s time to step away from his Facebook page.

Lonina planned a surprise engagement to Sharon involving a helicopter ride, Mt. Kenya, Lake Michaelson and the most beautiful engagement story ever.

She says in the blog,   “I wandered off to the shore of the lake, just to soak it all in and live in the moment. Lonina soon joined me and started to play one of our favourite songs on his iPod. Quite frankly, I was so distracted by the scenery that I’m not sure I really paid attention to his cute little speech. It was only until I saw him reach into his pocket that I thought there might be more to this than I realised. Seconds later he was down on one knee, asking if I would marry him… …and I said yes!”

Check out the beautiful photos  it is definitely what romantic movies are made of

Kendrick Lamar proposes to his long term girlfriend Whitney

Kendrick Lamar announced his engagement to his high school sweetheart Whitney Alford following a 10-year romance.

The two-time Grammy winner met his  fiancée at Compton’s Centennial High School .

In January, Lamar  said that Whitney was his ‘best friend’ and ‘somebody I can tell my fears to.’

‘She has always been someone, since day one, who has said something whenever I’m an a**hole, or also if I’m doing something positive – but more so when I’m out of my element,’ Kendrick said during an interview.

‘While you have  people who are actually fronting for your needs and wants, sometimes your needs and wants may not be right for you. The people around you are just trying to keep their jobs.’

And it’s a bit of a creative collaboration with Whitney providing additional vocals on his new tracks Wesley’s Theory and King Kunta.

Introducing the ring cam that captures proposal (video)

If you’re about to pop the question to your partner and want the moment captured on video, then you should buy the Ring Cam.

The American company that made the ring cam has three offers, starting at $99 (about sh 9,300) for a basic three week Ring Cam hire, and going up to $149.99 (about sh 14,000) for their Complete Package which includes a secret photographer for those for whom a video just isn’t enough.

Lady Gaga engaged to actor Taylor Kinney

Lady Gaga is engaged to marry actor Taylor Kinney after he proposed on Valentine’s Day. After Kinney popped the question, the couple celebrated at Gaga’s family’s restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Gaga confirmed the engagement herself via Instagram, sharing a picture of her huge, heart-shaped diamond ring via Instagram. “He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!” she captioned the photo.

Gaga, 28, stepped out on Monday, Feb. 16, and grinned from ear to ear but appeared to not be ready to flash her new engagement ring just yet. Wearing a purple fur coat, the songstress strategically covered her ring finger with her hand and under her coat.

A rare engagement photo-shoot

A couple decided to step away from the normal engagement photo shoots couples have and do something different.

Hunting enthusiast Stevie Beard  and her soon to be husband came up with “The Hunt is Over!” photo idea for their engagement photo shoot.

But she had no idea it would go on to be viewed by 6.4 million people on Facebook, and shared by 162,000 users.

The picture of her future husband hanging upside down, suspended by a tractor, was snapped by photographer Joshua Rainey on the groom’s family’s 150-acre property.

The photographer say “Stevie and Brady came up with the idea and surprised me with it during engagement photos. We worked together to figure out how the image should look and set it up quickly before sunset. It was rather tough to get the shot though, since Brady could only be upside down for a few minutes. Brady tied his own knots and got himself hooked up to the tractor and then his dad lifted him up slowly.”
