Usher's Naked Selfie Exposes Too Much Despite Attempt to Censor Image

It’s safe to say most celebrities are a little gun-shy when it comes to taking naked selfies.

But Usher didn’t hesitate to strip off and give his Snapchat followers a sneak peek on Thursday as he enjoyed a steam room and shower session.

In the most risque image, which the 37-year-old star captioned ‘blowinoffsteam’, he attempted to cover his modesty with an emoji as he is seen sitting on a ledge in his birthday suit.

Unfortunately the singer chose a graphic that wasn’t quite big enough to cover the area and ended up revealing a little too much.

It may of course have been an intentional and well-executed humble brag.

But what was certainly impressive was Usher’s phone which managed to capture the whole thing despite the wet conditions.

There’s no doubt the singer’s antics were a brilliant advert for the Samsung Galaxy S7.

In pictures and video from inside his shower, the OMG hitmaker sprayed the showerhead directly at his cell phone.

He captioned one of the clips: ‘S7 shower proofed’ clearly impressed with how the gadget held up.

The producer also filmed himself brushing his teeth, holding the phone aloft with his left hand as he scrubbed his pearly whites while wrapped up in a green towel.

Before heading into the bathroom, the R&B star had given fans a tour of his luxurious home.

Meanwhile Usher made an appearance at Coachella over the weekend and paid tribute to Prince as he appeared on stage during Major Lazer and Diplo’s set.

The U Got It Bad singer is currently working on his eighth studio album, FLAWED, which is expected to drop in the next couple of months.

Blade Runner Star Rutger Hauer Has Died Aged 75

Hollywood star Rutger Hauer has died aged 75.

The actor was best known for playing Roy Batty in the 1982 movie Blade Runner and also Sin City, Batman Begins and TV show True Blood.

His agent Steve Kenis confirmed Hauer died on Friday following a short illness. His funeral was held on Wednesday.

Tributes have begun pouring in for the star, with Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro tweeting to say: “RIP the great Rutger Hauer: an intense, deep, genuine and magnetic actor that brought truth, power and beauty to his films.”

KISS musician Gene Simmons wrote: “Sad to hear Rutger Hauer has passed away. He was always a gentleman, kind and compassionate. Sending our condolences and prayers to his family, friends and fans.”

Hauer was born in Breukelen in the Netherlands and did stints in both the merchant navy and army before he became an actor.

He got his big break in 1969, when he became the lead in TV series Floris.

Away from acting, Hauer launched The Rutger Hauer Starfish Foundation, which aimed to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS, especially within children and pregnant women.

Issuing a statement following his death, the foundation said: “The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association announces with infinite sadness that after a very short illness, on Friday, July 19, 2019, Rutger passed away peacefully at his Dutch home.

“He leaves his beloved wife Ineke, after they have been together for fifty years.

“We at Starfish will always cherish the many unforgettable memories we have of Rutger and his dedication to the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association.

“One of Rutger’s last wishes was that Starfish should continue its charity activity and its fight against the AIDS disease, and with Ineke’s precious help, involvement and direction we will follow Rutger’s wish and will do our best to carry on Rutger’s inestimable legacy.”

Freeform defends Halle Bailey’s casting as Ariel in “The Little Mermaid”!

Freeform defends Halle Bailey's casting as Ariel in "The Little Mermaid"!

Just in case you haven’t heard, Halle Bailey is the new Ariel, in an upcoming “The Little Mermaid” movie! She has been receiving messages from fans and other celebrities, congratulating her for landing the role!

Amongst those who congratulated her is Halle Berry, in a tweet she posted, “In case you needed a reminder… Halles get it DONE. Congratulations @chloexhalle on this amazing opportunity, we can’t wait to see what you!” She also added that she was “thrilled” for the 19 year old. However, not everyone was happy about Disney’s decision to cast a black woman for this role.

Some critics went as far as petitioning Disney to recast for this role, and titled their petition #NotMyAriel!  They suggested that Halle should be replaced by a white woman with red hair,  who would resemble the Ariel that they know from the 1989 animated version of The Little Mermaid. Now Freeform, Disney’s cable network, has decided to issue an open letter in response to this.

The letter read, “Yes. The original author of The Little Mermaid was Danish. Ariel…is a mermaid. She lives in an underwater kingdom in international waters and can legit swim wherever she wants (even though that often upsets King Triton, absolute zaddy). But for the sake of argument, let’s say that Ariel, too, is Danish”.

Freeform also added that, “Danish mermaids can be black because Danish *people* can be black. Ariel can sneak up to the surface at any time with her pals Scuttle and the *ahem* Jamaican crab Sebastian (sorry, Flounder!) and keep that bronze base tight. Black Danish people, and this mer-folk, can also *genetically* (!!!) have red hair”! Freeform then went on to remind the critics that Ariel and the story, is only fictional!

Beyoncé is the New Nala! The Lion King Fans Are Not so Impressed!

Are you as much of a fan of both Beyonce and The Lion King as I am? I mean, Beyonce could sing the phone book and I would still think she sounds angelic! And as an African, I am bound to love The Lion King!

If you are at least a fan of either, Beyonce or The Lion King, I’m sure you already know that Beyonce stars as Nala in the latest Lion King movie. Now its trailer is already out, and it is set to hit the cinemas soon! There are also beautiful photos of the “Lion King” cast all over the internet. Have I already told you just how beautiful the photos are? If you would like to see them, check them out here!

Now the problem is that some Twitter users are not so happy with “Queen Bey” as Nala! Honestly, I personally wouldn’t find fault in anything that Beyonce does, but clearly, not everyone shares the same sentiments as myself! One critic claimed that Beyonce is being “too Beyonce”, I don’t even know what that means.

The critic tweeted, “It’s like something is off here, maybe the lions look too real for voice-overs. And I know Nala is Beyonce but it sounds very Beyonce. It’s so distracting…”! Another also posted, “Okay I’m going to be brave and say this but I don’t think I like Beyonce as Nala. I wish she had just done the soundtrack but her voice doesn’t suit Nala. Hope I’m wrong…”!

Another Twitter user suggested that Queen Bey should have tried to change her voice to suit the character, saying her voice is “too distinct for this. It doesn’t even sound like she attempted to change the sound of her voice for the character”.
