Who said what last week?
“Like everyone else in society, gay people have an enormous amount to offer and Nigeria should embrace them not prosecute them.” -Richard Branson.
“If I had the money today, I’d put it on Neymar. You can’t say that Neymar is Pele as he had won the World Cup by the age of 17. He has the potential to be one of the future great strikers but at the moment there’s a big difference between the Brazilian league and a European league.”
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, admitting that Brazilian star, Neymar, would be his dream signing. The 19-year-old is probably the most demanded player now and is rated at £40million.
“Even though it might not seem like a big deal because I’m a pop singer or whatever, it still hurts to write a cheque. Everybody was laughing because when I signed my tax returns this year I had to get completely wasted. They were just holding me up. It’s unbelievable.”
Pop star, Lady Gaga, revealing that she still finds it hard to pay her taxes.
“@tiwasavage will u date me? no fall my hand o #okbye”
Super producer, Don Jazzy, flirting with Tiwa Savage on Twitter last week.
“To be honest, all it came down to was choosing to live and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life. It could have come back more aggressively next time, so for me it was just more important to get the cancer out. With the double mastectomy I now have less than one per cent chance of getting it back, otherwise it was 20, 30 or 40 per cent chance and for me it wasn’t worth it.”
E! News presenter, Guiliana Rancic, explaining in an interview on The Today Show, that she will have her breast surgically removed after doctors failed to ‘get all the cancer out’ when she underwent a double lumpectomy to remove cancerous growths in both breasts, last month.
“Like everyone else in society, gay people have an enormous amount to offer and Nigeria should embrace them not prosecute them. All of us with influence in Nigeria must do what we can to stop this cruel law. I would urge educated Nigerians all over the world to do what they can to help fight this discrimination.”
