Dua Lipa Turns Lifestyle Guru And Opens Her Little Black Book Up to the World

Dua Lipa Announces Service95, A Newsletter And A Lifestyle Brand Full Of Curated Recommendations

Dua lipa On Tuesday November 23, announced the early 2022 launch of service95; a global style, culture, and society concierge service created to help the reader make sense of the world and also to extend the brand Dua by sharing her knowledge to everyone who signs up.

Dua Lipa is an English singer, songwriter model and one of the biggest and most well travelled superstars on the planet. 

According the  “Don’t Start Now” hit maker, she has always dream about her forthcoming lifestyle platform for long. Being of service is her mission in life and the whole idea of the service95 platform is sharing information and helping each other.

  She said, “the service promises to share a “witty and considered curation of lists, recommendations, stories, information, thoughts, perspectives and conversations you won’t hear, see, or read anywhere else. Though a lot of my guests have done their fair share of talking, I want to go deeper with them.

She added, “Not only am I probing them about the things I’m most curious about, I’m also treating them like the experts they are.”

Among the other offerings in the free weekly newsletter that she teased were articles from “the world’s most compelling voices alongside savvy social commentary, laugh-out-loud features and left-of-center recommendations that will include late-night gnoshes, little-known hotspots, up-and-coming artists, grassroots activists and the sort of travel tips only an extensively travelled international pop star could offer”.

TICKET FOR DUA LIPA’S UK/EUROPE FUTURE NOSTALGIA TOUR ON SALE TOMORROW FROM 9AM GMT

The project feels like a natural evolution of the singer’s influential Instagram account, where some 75 million followers showed much interest in her every Balenciaga-clad move. The  project was inspired by Dua’s longtime habit of personally curation recommendations and lists and pointing out lesser-known “people, pieces of pop culture, travel destinations, hidden gems and global issues to her closest friends and family”.

“The more we share with each other, the closer we become, the wider our circles grow,” Dua said in the statement, which promised intel on everything from underground galleries in Brazil, to little-known diners in Louisiana and the best manicurists in Lagos. Every issue will feature a personal letter from Dua penned from her latest global destination, with tips on what she’s streaming, seeing, hearing and eating.

“I find huge joy in telling people what I’ve learned about in any given city and love finding connection in our shared experiences,” she said. “Service95 is going to take that idea and bring it to anyone who’s as curious as I am about life.” The first Service95 newsletter is slate to launch in January.

Rockstar Eugene visited Giovani Caleb on the 3FM Drive where he disclosed that he wrote one of the most viral songs in Africa for a popular Nigerian artist.

He kept details of the name of the artist and the title of the song to himself but hinted that it ranks among the top 5 viral songs on TikTok.

Kuami Eugene added that he does not regret writing the song for the Nigerian artist because he was paid handsomely for his work.

The Lynx Entertainment Signee has worked with a number of Nigerian musicians but his recent work was on the viral song with CKay.

Eugene could not confirm or deny if that was the song he wrote, all he could say was CKay owns the rights to the song.

Will Johnny Depp Act Again? A look At Actor’s Scheduled Films As He Returns To The Stand In Amber Heard Trial

Johnny Depp: Captain Jack Sparrow

Johnny Depp is set to take the stand in his ongoing defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.

Depp is suing Heard for $50m (£38.2m). He alleges that Heard implied that he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed about domestic violence.

The article does not mention him by name.

Heard is countersuing for $100m (£80.9m), accusing Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her and describing his lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment”.

Throughout the case, Depp and his legal representatives have referred to the actor’s career being negatively impacted as a result of the claims.

Last month, talent agent Christian Carino testified that he believes Heard’s allegations of abuse cost Depp the job of playing Captain Jack Sparrow in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film, having portrayed the character in five previous films.

In 2020, Depp bowed out of his role as Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise after losing a domestic violence libel case against The Sun.

Meanwhile, some fans have questioned whether the three-time Oscar-nominee will work professionally again.

Though his future presence in Hollywood productions is unconfirmed as of yet, Depp is reported to have at least one acting role in the pipeline.

He is expected to star in the forthcoming French-language film Jeanne du Barry, playing the controversial French king, Louis XV. As reported in Variety earlier this year, the period drama will be directed by Maïwenn, who also stars as the ruler’s mistress, Jeanne Bécu.

Elsewhere, Depp has recently provided the voice of Johnny Puff in the children’s web mini-series, Puffins Impossible.

Plans for the sixth instalment of Pirates of the Caribbean have yet to be confirmed, but according to film producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the door isn’t completely closed for Depp to make a return.

When asked by The Sunday Times earlier this month whether there was a view for him to return as Captain Jack Sparrow, he responded: “Not at this point. The future is yet to be decided.”

Outside of these projects, the actor has also gone viral for his behaviour during the trial proceedings, with actions such as joking about bringing waffles for fansspreading widely across social media platforms.

The dispute between Depp and Heard has prompted reactions from a number of high profile figures. Here’s a rundown of the celebrities who have voiced their support for Heard, while here’s a list of the celebrities who have thrown support behind Depp.

Will Smith Reveals He Saw His Career Collapse Through A Premonition

Will Smith ingested ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic drink, and the visions he had led him to rethink his life.

After his scandal during the Oscar Awards ceremony, where he slapped comedian Chris Rock after he made a joke about the alopecia suffered by his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, actor Will Smith does not stop appearing in the media.

Vetoed for 10 years by the Academy, in addition to the fact that several film studios such as Netflix withdrew the projects in which they had him contemplated, Smith no longer has room to maneuver to try to resume his career, because now it depends on someone to give him a new opportunity.

Mind-blowing experience

Perhaps that is why he is now taking advantage of the spaces he is given to try to change the image of a violent guy who explodes at the slightest provocation without measuring the consequences of his behavior.

Interviewed by David Letterman on the program “My Next Guess Needs No Introduction”, the 53-year-old actor confessed that some time ago he opted to undergo a ritual where after ingesting ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic drink used by Amazonian tribes in their ceremonies, he managed to have a disturbing vision that later became a reality.

“I drank it, and it usually takes about 45 minutes for it to hit you. I was sitting there and even though I thought it wouldn’t hit me, all of a sudden I saw my money flying far away, my house flying away and my career going far away,” he said.

Empowered by life

However, it didn’t stop there, as in the midst of his vision he experienced that his daughter Willow would be in danger and was screaming at him asking him to help her, something that so far has not come to pass.

“Then, slowly, I stopped worrying about my money, I just wanted to reach Willow, and I stopped worrying about my house, and I stopped worrying about my career,” she emphasized.
