"What's in a name?" is a question that was infamously posed by William Shakespeare. Maybe he didn't understand what star kids were back then! Even while we all enjoy hearing about new babies, we are all much too eager to find out what names our favourite celebrities' partners choose for their offspring. Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh and his wife Hazel Keech just announced the name of their baby son on Instagram, and it is just wonderful.
Yuvraj posted images of the couple and their gorgeous youngster on Father's Day and wrote a touching caption: “Welcome to the world 𝗢𝗿𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗞𝗲𝗲𝗰𝗵 𝗦𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗵 ❤️. Mummy and Daddy love their little “puttar”. Your eyes twinkle with every smile just as your name is written amongst the stars ✨ #HappyFathersDay”
The new mama Hazel Keech also posted a few snaps with baby Orion with the caption: “Happy first Fathers Day to you @yuvisofficial You’ve dreamt of this day since before we even met, now here you are, a burping, bottle feeding, nappy-changing, rocking-baby-to-sleep Papa with all the sleep deprivation and vomit that comes along with the giggles, smiles and joy. You’re a great hands-on dad and I'm proud of the effort you make, always trying your best xx Happy Fathers Day to you too Granddad. I love that Orion gets to see so much of you while you’re patiently waiting for him to be big enough to throw around. Happy Fathers Day to you @yograjofficial Orion waiting to pull your beard and meet the Grandpa with the booming voice. Xx”
The Meaning Behind The Name- Orion
The constellation in the sky that resembles a hunter with a belt made up of the three brightest stars in the sky is called Orion, and its name is of Greek origin. Greek mythology describes Orion as a powerful hunter who Zeus set amid the stars. It refers to a star that is rising in the sky.
Although he may be too young to realise it, Baby Orion is already the brightest star on Instagram. Now, we are only waiting for papa Yuvraj and mom Hazel to grace our feeds with more lovely images!
2022 hasn’t been the most wonderful of years so far. We have lost absolute legends of the Indian entertainment sector. We have lost legendary singers, musicians, dancers and actors in the 6 months since the turn of the year. We take a look at the 5 supremely talented musicians that our country has lost this year.
Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar (Famous Playback Singer) – Died on 6th February 2022 Due To Covid (Aged 92 Years)
Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar died in Mumbai's Breach Candy Hospital on Sunday. She was 92. She was cremated with full state honours at Mumbai's iconic Shivaji Park. Lata Mangeshkar was taken to the intensive care unit on January 8 after testing positive for COVID-19. On Saturday, her condition had deteriorated again and she had to be put on ventilator support. Lata Mangeshkar, a recipient of the Bharat Ratna, Padma Vibhushan, Padma Bhushan and Dadasaheb Phalke Awards, was an icon of Indian cinema, having sung playback for an extensive list of Hindi films; she also sang in several regional languages including Marathi and Bengali.
Bappi Lahiri (Bollywood Film Musician) – Died on 16th February 2022 Due To Covid Related Problem. (Aged 69 Years)
Veteran singer-composer Bappi Lahiri died in a Mumbai hospital due to multiple health issues. He died on the night of 16th February at Mumbai's CritiCare Hospital in Juhu. He was 69. Fondly referred to as Bappi da, he was best known for his hit numbers as was for his fascination for gold. Bappi Lahiri was known as the true blue 'Disco King' of Bollywood of the 80s and 90s, especially for his widely popular songs for films such as Namak Halaal, Disco Dancer and Dance Dance.
Confident of his Elvis-inspired fondness for jewellery, he turned “Bejewelled Bappida” into his signature style and stepped out laden with gold, several chins and folds on the neck, his smile in place. Goodbye, Bappida. It was a pleasure knowing you.
Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma (Santoor Musician) – Died on 10th May 2022 Due To Heart-Related Illness (Aged 84 Years)
Pt. Shivkumar Sharma, veteran santoor maestro, passed away in Mumbai due to cardiac arrest. He was 84. Hailing from Jammu, Pt. Shivkumar, put the multiple-string santoor at the centre stage. He adapted the instrument to play Hindustani music and became its foremost exponent. He was also suffering from renal ailments.
Despite massive success in films, classical music remained Sharma’s focus and he carried the delicate santoor to concerts around the world. “Classical music is not for entertainment. It is to take you on a meditative journey, ye toh mehsoos karne ki cheez hai (This has to be experienced),” he would often say.
For decades, Sharma’s santoor spoke a unique language, one that the world didn’t know before him, one that was sometimes hymnal and on others idyllic, sometimes from a world of deep-rooted classicality and on others allowed one to navigate life’s chaos to be amid transcendental silence — the kind that only his music could generate.
Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu aka. Sidhu Moose Wala (Punjabi Singer, Rapper, And Politician) – Died on 29th May 2022 Due To A Gunshot Wound. (Aged 30 Years.)
Sidhu Moose Wala was an Indian singer, rapper, actor and politician associated with Punjabi music and Punjabi cinema. He started his career as a songwriter for the song "License" by Ninja, and began his singing career on a duet song titled "G Wagon". Following his debut, he collaborated with Brown Boyz for various tracks which were released by Humble Music. Moose Wala admired and was influenced by rapper Tupac Shakur. He started listening to hip-hop music in the 6th grade and learned musical skills from Harvinder Bittu in Ludhiana. According to statements he made while campaigning, he choose "Moose Wala" for his stage name as a tribute to his home village of Moosa.
K.K (Indian playback Singer) – Died on 31st May 2022 due to a heart attack. (Aged 53 Years)
Popular Bollywood singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK, passed away on Tuesday after a concert at Gurudas College, in Kolkata. Kunnath was taken to a private hospital in south Kolkata after falling ill during a live concert as he felt chest congestion.
Friendship and the bittersweet weight of nostalgia were recurring themes in KK's songs - this was perhaps best captured in the soulful Pal (Moment) and Yaaron (Friends). The lyrics, along with the velvety youthfulness of his voice, struck a chord with millennials coming of age in the late 1990s and early 2000s, who would hum along to it at parties and perform it at college festivals.
KK was also the voice behind several iconic romantic songs many of which were produced by music composer Pritam and duo Vishal-Shekhar. His biggest hits included Tadap Tadap Ke, Khuda Jaaney, Tu Hi Meri Shab Hai, Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai and Dus Bahane.
Anyone, regardless of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity, can support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. Deepening your understanding of LGBT-related issues, including basic terms and concepts, can help you support LGBT-identified people. You may have heard of the term “ally” in relation to LGBT issues. Here, we describe some ways to think about what “ally” means and provide helpful tips on how to be one.
What Does “Ally” Mean?
A person who has a genuine, strong concern for the well-being of LGBT people
A person who supports and accepts LGBT people, and advocates for equal rights and fair treatment
A person who confronts challenges that LGBT people experience, and believes that we face these problems in society:
Heterosexism — The assumption that everyone is or should be straight
Biprejudice — Harmful, preconceived ideas about bisexual people
Transprejudice — Harmful, preconceived ideas about transgender people
Heterosexual Privilege — The everyday privileges straight people have in society. For example, the ability to display attraction or affection (e.g., holding hands) to the opposite gender in public without fear of judgment or even violence
Ways to Be an Ally:
Stay Informed: If you don’t know the difference between sex and gender or current LGBT-related news and issues, educate yourself. Ask questions, do research, and don’t be afraid, to be honest about what you don’t know.
Speak Up: There are many reasons why people don’t speak up when they hear something offensive, like “that’s so gay.” It can be awkward, people don’t know what to say, or don’t want to make the situation worse. But, words can hurt. When you speak up, it educates others, lets them know their words are not acceptable and may give others the courage to speak up as well. You can also change how people act in the future. This is powerful.
Be Honest: Speak openly about family members, friends, and colleagues who are LGBT, if they are out and are comfortable with you discussing it with others. People often assume they will offend others or make them uncomfortable if they mention LGBT topics. Also, remember that occasional disagreement is normal and healthy!
Support Equality: Support policies at school, work, or other places that help protect LGBT people from discrimination. Even if the issues seem small, they can have a big impact on people’s lives. If you see or hear of an unfair rule or policy, talk to a peer or trusted adult about your concerns and what you can do to make a change.
Come Out as an Ally: Anyone can be an ally, regardless of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Be proud to support the LGBT community. Remember, being an ally can be joining an LGBT group — or as simple as showing your support online.
Allies are important and welcome supporters of the LGBT community. They can be effective and powerful voices for LGBT equality and can not only help LGBT people feel comfortable coming out but also help others understand the importance of equality and fairness for all people.
Fashion and football have always had a symbiotic relationship. In the 1970s and 1980s, it was the fans, or so-called casuals, who became style pioneers, importing European luxury labels like Stone Island and Fila before anyone else and, in the process, establishing terrace fashion. Then there's fashion, which, as Martine Rose, Liam Hodges, and just about every other designer with half an eye on the outside world have demonstrated, appears to find an eternal source of inspiration in the game.
Even footballers, who have long been anti-Midases of fashion, favouring trucker caps, bootcut jeans, and anything else from the Trafford Centre's terrible taste area, have gotten in on the act. Hector Bellerin, Arsenal's former full-back, is leading the campaign post-Beckham, spending as much time on the front row of Fashion Week as he does in the Emirates dugout.
When it comes to clubs, uniforms, and the official end of football fashion, however, the outcomes have historically been disappointing at best, and downright shocking at worst. Dover Street boys, high-end designers, and streetwear firms can readily repurpose football gear, but because clubs are primarily governed by normie marketing execs and ex-players, we've rarely seen kits and training clothing that match the game's stylistic appeal.
There has been many a flop, deadlock, or catastrophe for every Fiorucci-sponsored Milan gear, every Balenciaga-esque David James jersey, or Wavey Garms-friendly throwback football shirt. People have formed websites dedicated to bad football uniforms, where they can bemoan the iconic Hull City 'tiger' jersey, Coventry's dirt brown number from 1978, and Chelsea's 'broken TV grey and Tango orange' away shirt from the 1994/95 season.
There is still a gap between what people believe is attractive and what teams really do. Despite the large social media announcements, massive sponsorship agreements, and staged deliveries, many modern football uniforms are major disappointments — victims of both overthinking and underthinking. One of the most recent instances is Arsenal's '19/20 'bruised banana' away uniform.
However, there are genuine signs of progress. Men's fashion is dominated by sportswear, and football culture is once again trendy. It's the subject of magazines like Mundial. On stage, Loyle Carner wears football clothing. Drake is always seen wearing these. All of this implies that the flashy suit brigade in charge has begun to delegate some aesthetic power to a younger generation, which in turn looks to high fashion and streetwear for inspiration.
The home kit of Paris Saint-Germain – the gold-standard bearer for stylish football shirts – is one of the great kit triumphs of recent years, one that you'll virtually certainly find in practically any conurbation greater than 500 people on the planet. In recent years, this shirt from a little-loved side in a little-watched league has become something of an iconic piece. It isn't the most beautiful or spectacular song, but its simplicity, as well as its use in music videos by rappers like PNL and MHD, has solidified it as a must-have. It was most recently spotted on 'Alex from Glasto,' who, while being from Somerset, certainly doesn't follow Thomas Tuchel's lads everywhere they go, but finds something in the implications it brings.
It's difficult to pinpoint why that shirt has become so popular (and it's certainly not the team), but it's a model that many clubs and even national teams are emulating: an instantly recognisable, collectable kit that transcends traditional local allegiances in the way that American basketball vests frequently do.
Following the unintended success of its home uniform, PSG has now launched a diffusion line, its own 'X' cooperation with Nike Jordan, who, incidentally, are pioneers in the field of sportswear as streetwear. It's not difficult to picture the components being part of the official PSG outfit in the future.
Juventus, which is also striving for reputation (and a Champions League spot), has struck an unexpected alliance with Palace Skateboards. There was speculation that Palace would design the official uniform, but Adidas swiftly put it to rest by presenting the worst Juventus kit in years. Cristiano Ronaldo may not be wearing Palace just yet, but the relationship demonstrates both Palace and Juventus' ambitions, both in their own industries and in the worldwide market for cool, where a football team can now be as cool as a brand or rapper if they so choose.
Then there's the 2018 Nigeria World Cup kit, which became a genuine hot piece for even casual fans, far more so than any of the more established team's attempts, owing to the fact that it wasn't afraid to be flamboyant, on-trend, and aware of the team's culture. Like the finest Air Jordan sneakers, resellers went wild for it, and it's already been re-released several times.
Not to mention tracksuits and training gear, which were originally solely worn by club physios but are now quite popular in the age of athleisure. Naturally, PSG appears to be in the forefront of this.
Football's artistic possibilities are beginning to expand. We may be a long way from seeing the Versace X Stoke City home kit that we all crave, but clubs are surely looking to the streets and catwalks for inspiration, that can only be a good thing. We could be looking at a new golden era of football kits if it stays exciting and collaborative rather than cliched and cynical. Alternatively, those 'worst kits ever' blogs may still have a few more entries.
What exactly is gilded glamour? People have been trying to decipher the meaning of this year's Met Gala theme since it was revealed. Some people associate the phrase with Edith Wharton's New York, while others associate it with the blingy, streetwise appearance of the early 2000s. Guests at Thursday night's gala were allowed to trace their own path, with plenty of space for interpretation. They did so with joy, as the best dressed celebs at the 2022 Met Gala were spotted in custom designer clothes and historical vintage.
5. Eiza Gonzalez in Michael Kors
Silver sparkles adorned the front of Eiza's Hollywood Golden Age gown, which also had feathers on the sleeves and bottom half, as well as a mermaid finish. The dress was so long that the leggy wonder's shoes were hidden behind it. Her halterneck gown features a twisted ruched waist to define her physique, but the pièce de résistance has to be the optic white scattered crystals and feather detailing.
4. Gigi Hadid in Versace
Gigi Hadid, who looked gorgeous in a red leather corset and matching skin-tight leggings for the event, paired with red knee-high boots, was another model who went for volume. With a big crimson jacket, the model added even more drama to her ensemble. Gigi has walked the red carpet at the Met Gala for the seventh time. In 2015, the model made her Met Gala debut in a gorgeous crimson gown.
3. Tessa Thompson in Carolina Herrera
We adore a large ball gown, and Tessa Thompson's was the biggest at this year's Met Gala. In a big, fluffy pink gown by Carolina Herrera, the actress stole the show, making quite the entrance on those famed steps. The dress designed by Wes Gordon, included 200 meters of gathered tulle and an external corset, which fit the motif well.
2. Lily James in Versace
Lily attended the Met Gala in a custom Atelier Versace gown that encapsulated the Gilded Age's unbridled glamour, excess, and aspirational elegance. A nude tulle illusion, the dress is completely covered in strings of pearls, which are symbolic of monarchy, decadence, and the acquiring of new feminine liberties during the Gilded Age.
1. Blake Lively in Versace
The Met Gala is known for its extravagant fashion, which Blake Lively fully embraced on Monday evening, arriving in one gown and then unwrapping it on the Met's steps to show another underneath. The blue highlights paid homage to the Statue of Liberty, while the golden design represented the Empire State Building, both of which were inspired by New York City's grandeur.
