    Please EVERYONE knows Hello/Hola! It’s the celebrity magazine of record arount the world. We buy it here in the US instead of People because People looks tacky. The pictures in Hello are big and scrumptious. There’s a saying that when you want a big weddding you say I want an Hola wedding. LOL!!!

    Celine! Here’s a YouTube video simultaneously showing Celine lip syncing “Taking Chances” to the exact track from her CD, on 6 different occasions.. It’s obvious because they all match the CD version of the song. Exactly.

    I wonder whether those celebrities who try to get press by posing with
    Nelson Mandela know why they’re doing it? Aspiring what? I don’t understand the trend. Posing with Nelson mandela gotta be the next best thing after adopting an African baby !! The guy is like a tourist attraction for celebrities visiting S.Africa..

    The kid’s only 7 cut the hair!!!

  • Olivia

    Rene Charles looks just like Celine looked as a child. Except he has light blue eyes. Not sure where those came from.
    Cute kid. But I do wish they would cut his waist length hair so he would look like a BOY.

  • Bimo

    Mandela is always wearing Batik from Indonesia. He loves Batik so much.
