Momtaz: The uncrowned queen of Bangladeshi folk music


momtaz-the-uncrowned-queen-of-bangladeshi-folk-musicThis is the 21-century; under the label of globalisation, westernisation has crept in. One would think that the younger generation is fast losing old values and traditions that also include music. Fortunately, folk music is ingrained in the air and soil of this country and has lost none of its appeal. Today people are not travelling on ox-carts for miles to listen to live performances but Bangladeshi folk songs have found their place in iPods, computer hard drives and MP3 players alongside their global counterparts. And when one considers Bangla folk, the name Momtaz comes to the Read the full story

Making it on her own

Making it on her own


Tête-à-tête with Ankhi Alamgir
making-it-on-her-ownThere was a time when people heard the name Ankhi Alamgir, and immediately associated her with her famous father, actor Alamgir. Ankhi’s mother, Khoshnoor is also a well-known lyricist. Being born into a renowned family has had its ups and downs, admits the accomplished singer Ankhi. But things have changed since then and today Ankhi has carved a niche for herself in the entertainment world. In an interview with The Daily Star, Ankhi talked about the journey to where she stands now.
“I have always been an introvert and like to do things on my own. When I was a child everyone would want to be friends with me because I was ‘Alamgir’s daughter’. So I never had close friends,” Ankhi said. While some of her teachers adored her, others used to pass taunting comments like “Why study? You are Read the full story

Britney Spears’ New Jersey Home


britney-spears-new-jersey-home1Britney Spears is renting an $8 million New Jersey house.
The singer and her sons, three-year-old Sean Preston and Jayden James, two, will live in the mansion in Alpine for a month, with her record label Jive footing the $30,000 bill.
A source told Life and Style Weekly magazine: “Britney wanted a home away from home while she was on tour, especially for the boys – something close to Manhattan. They talked about Long Island, but she wanted something closer that could feel like home for Sean and Jayden.”
Property broker Dennis McCormack described the property as a quiet hideaway in an exclusive neighbourhood.
He said: “It’s very spacious, so there’s lots of room for her kids to run around and play. The colonial-style home has seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and two half baths.
“It has an understated elegance, with high ceilings and lots of bright light.”
It is believed Britney was attracted to Read the full story

What next in life for Emma Watson

What next in life for Emma Watson


Will it be Cambridge, film stardom, fashion or chilling with the £10m already in the bank? We talk to Emma Watson about the life ahead
Camilla Long
Is Emma Watson a bit of a madam? Given 10 years of international superstardom, £10m pocket money, hot and cold running Chanel, the undying hearts of a million billion children, and all by the age of 18, I imagine anyone would be. Certainly, she’s a bit aloof, a bit otherworldly, a bit most-popular-girl-in-school, when she arrives at the studio, two PRs tottering after. “We’ve met before,” I say, as she holds out her tiny princess’s hand. We only met for two seconds, of course, last year at a charity ball. She goes bright red and brushes an imaginary bit of Read the full story

Beyonce Knowles, the next Wonder Woman?

Beyonce Knowles, the next Wonder Woman?


There are pros and cons regarding Beyonce Knowles’ desire to be the next Amazon Superhero, Wonder Woman – a rumor that has spread on the internet.  “I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman? It would be great. And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It’s time for that, right?” she told the Los Angeles Times.
The “Dreamgirls” star also said that she has met with representatives of Warner Bros. and DC Comics to express her interest in a major role in one of the many comic-book adaptations now in the pipeline following the massive success of the “Spider-Man,” “X-Men” and “The Dark Knight,” and “Iron Man” franchises. It’s not clear if anyone will be able to deliver a Wonder Woman project anytime soon.
Ms. Beyonce interest in the role was strengthened earlier this year when she went to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and saw on display Lynda Carter’s iconic costume. “I would definitely have to keep it right for that costume,” she says. “But I love Read the full story

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, known as the world’s raunchiest model, has now been given a new label — world’s sexiest businesswoman.

 

 

Gisele, 27, who rakes in 35 million dollars a year as per the new Forbes list of the top 15 richest supermodels, has “more contracts than any other model on the planet,” according to Forbes.com reports.

The supermodel’s steadiness has earned her a huge reputation in the tough world of modelling and she is the subject of a sexy new spread in Arena magazine, the Daily Telegraph reported.

With topping the models’ earning list for several years, she has been the face of virtually every fashion campaign that matters from Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbanna, Versace, Givenchy, Valentino, Ralph Lauren, and Louis Vuitton.

Gisele, who is known throughout the beauty industry as an astute businesswoman, last year, insisted on being paid in any other currency but the US dollar.
