It is official. DC “Titans” is welcoming a new member into the family.

Transgender and deaf artist, Chella Man is set to join the cast of “Titans” as Jericho, also known as Joseph Wilson who is the son of the infamous supervillain Deathstroke.

First introduced in 1984’s “Tales of the Teen Titans #43”, the character has the ability to possess any being through eye contact.

Unfortunately, Jericho is deaf and uses sign language to communicate. This unfortunate event was caused due to Deathstroke’s failure of saving Jericho from having his vocal cords damaged by assassins.

Fortunately, unlike his murderous father, Jericho is a softie at heart. While his sexuality wasn’t explored much in the comics, his modern interpretation portrays him as bisexual.

Following DC’s announcement, Chella Man took to Instagram to express his excitement for the role, As a trans, Deaf, Jewish person of colour, I have always reminded myself of the power in my differences.”

“It is a dream come true, now, as I will be able to showcase this power on Titans. HUGE thank you to all who have supported me throughout this process!”

Before landing on this role, Man gained popularity on YouTube for his journey transitioning from a woman to a man. To date, Man has over 214,987 subscribers on the platform.

In addition, Man was signed as a model to IMG, and has openly spoken about issues regarding gender, identity, race, and disability.

Mandapop king Wang Leehom has recently signed on to become the ambassador of  World Vision Malaysia (WVM) where he will be collaborating with the organisation to highlight about the impact of poverty on children and communities in his “Come See My World” campaign.

The 42-year-old singer is no stranger to World Vision and is a Child Sponsor of 20 children from Laos and Sierra Leone. He has visited World Vision’s community transformation projects in various places including China, Laos and Sierra Leone.

“The ability to be happy and how to cultivate that in our children, I think it’s so important for our future,” the award-winning singer said during a press conference at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur.

“The moments when you’re happy in life are so precious. For me, I’m very happy because I know that I’m contributing to society and that feeling of contribution is very important to me.”

“I believed that a lot of people when they’re able to contribute to something bigger than themselves, it can be a great source of happiness,” he added.

This is not the first time the American-born Taiwanese becomes the ambassador of WVM. In 2012, Leehom was named as the 30-Hour Famine Ambassador during WVM’s 15th anniversary, where he set a personal goal to find sponsors for 3,000 children living in impoverished conditions.

World Vision has been around for 70 years and its main aim is to promote human transformation, seek justice for the oppressed and demonstrate the love of God for all peoples regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

Brace yourself, the highly anticipated collaboration between Sportswear company, adidas Running and legendary hit TV show, “Game of Thrones” is coming to Malaysia.

In conjunction with the show’s final season, adidas Running is releasing six limited-edition of Ultraboost.

The upcoming shoes will pay tribute to the noble families and warring factions of the Seven Kingdoms and beyond The Wall. Each of the shoes are carefully designed to reflect the characteristics, colours, and details of the heroes and villains in the show.

For instance, the Lannister Ultraboost features a red Primeknit upper with three gold stripes to mirror the House of Lannister.

Similarly, the Stark boost is dressed according to the theme of House of Stark, while the Targaryen W primeknit upper is designed in white and gold.

Another Targaryen joining the squad, Targaryen Dragon, dropping the heat with its fiery dragon colour.

As for the White Walker footwear, it features a white upper with “Core Black’ and “Grow Blue” layers. The squad is complete with the Night’s Watch sneaker, joining in dressed in black.

In addition, the references for each house can be seen on the shoe’s heel tab. The phrases range from Lannister’s “Hear Me Roar” to the famous Night King’s phrase “Winter Is Here.”

Alberto Uncini Manganelli, General Manager adidas Running, said: “Collaborations with franchises like Game of Thrones are part of our DNA. When brands and television series alike are able to move beyond their primary platform and spill into popular culture, we see inspiration. The project is yet another example of our open source strategy by which we treat our most iconic silhouettes as a canvas upon which we can tell a story.”

Has Avril Lavigne embraced Islam? That was the first thing that came to mind when fans saw the 34-year-old singer wearing hijab (Muslim women wear to cover their modesty).

Relax guys. Lavigne is wearing it out of respect for the culture while she’s in Dubai.

Instagram Photo

The pop star, who recently released her comeback studio album “Head Above Water”, was photographed at Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. She and her team were invited to perform at Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, which is taking place between 14th till 21st March.

Lavigne had previously expressed her excitement to be a part of Special Olympics that seeks to unify the world and not shun those who are less abled. The artist herself had spent years battling against Lyme disease.

You can check out her performance of the new Special Olympics anthem (written by Ryan Tedder and Sir Greg Wells) below. She sang “Right Where I’m Supposed To Be” together with Latin singer Luis Fonsi, Emirati singer Hussain Al Jassmi, Syrian singer Assala Nasri and Egyptian singer Tamer Hosny.

Besides exploring the lavish surroundings of at Emirates Palace, Lavigne and her friends also enjoyed an activity of camel ride down the private beach of the Abu Dhabi hotel.

The singer took to her social media to post about her amazing experience in Dubai. Her message reads:

Moved by the beauty and grace of your culture. Being here for the @specialolympics and performing with @luisfonsi, @tamerhosny, @7sainaljassmi, and @assala_official has been such an amazing experience. Everyone has been so warm and my time here has been magical and epic. Thank you for having me UAE and for your hospitality @emiratespalace.”

February came and left faster than most of us could catch our breath. Whilst infamously being the month of romance thanks to Valentines’ Day, we hope that you have been peppering in showers of flowers, chocolates and declarations of love.

If not, you certainly have been fed well from our favourite K-pop stars! Here are our highlights for comebacks during the month of February 2019.

1. Taemin – “Want”

Starting out strong, we got a visit from our favourite temptress. All adorned in red, Taemin has marched right into our hearts and we’re not complaining. If “Move” was controlled and calm, “Want” is relentless and out for blood. Probably his most risque and seductive comeback yet, Taemin has turned on the sex appeal and it is just overflowing with charm at this point. “Want” is engineered in such a way to snake right up to you, slowly wrapping itself around you then when you realise you’re trapped; it’s too late. The killer chorus is what delivers the final blow; but the mere elegance of it all is what makes it feel like such a classy affair. From the snapping of his hips to the swagger in his walk – ”Want” is further evidence that it’s Taemin’s world; we’re just living in it.

2. Dreamcatcher – “PIRI”

Dreamcatcher has always stood out with their sound of heavy guitar riffs in an industry where saccharine sounds and throbbing bass are the driving force of songs. “PIRI” however, seems to be an interesting marriage of both. With an incorporation of flute, EDM— and of course, metal— we have “PIRI”. Albeit not their strongest single, it does however show growth and experimentation on their end. Dreamcatcher showed how they are not afraid of changing up things up, but still are perfectly capable of keeping it within the theme. Versatile yet original; these girls seem to have more than just a few tricks up their sleeves. With this, let’s hope that it gives Dreamcatcher the big break they deserve!

3. MONSTA X – “Alligator”

After the show stopping “Shoot Out”, the bar was set pretty high for Monsta X. “Alligator” however, does not quite come close to it. While the music video shows that Starship Entertainment finally can blow their budget on our favourite sexy men, the embellishment is almost the only thing remarkable about the single itself. “Alligator” feels like a weak repackage, a mashup of all their previous title tracks churned into one. However that may seem to be the intended effect, especially with rappers Jooheon and I.M complementing each other a la “Dramarama”. Perhaps this was a #throwback moment for Monbebes?

4. LOONA – “Butterfly”

Probably the most talked about girl group on the planet, LOONA is no foreign name in Kpop. With a long awaited comeback, “Butterfly” blew us away. From an absolutely stunning music video, languid choreography, and gorgeous visuals; this comeback seems to be everything fans have wanted. The track itself is rather questionable, but the impressive music video makes it easy to forget. What was most notable about it was the group’s decision to use women of colour, in a way that was not sexualising them but merely showing them as they are; human. “Butterfly” feels very much like a breathtaking art film, but does very little as a song by itself.

5. SF9 – “Enough”

FNC Entertainment’s boy group seems to be slowly garnering attention over time. After their impressive comeback with “Now or Never”, our eyes have been peeled for SF9. We’re glad to announce that they did not disappoint. “Enough” balances the mystery and allure; hitting all the right spots that their previous single didn’t. With a combination of vocals in the chorus to the use of chiptune, the single seems to show that SF9 has finally found their colour and will probably be sticking to it for a while. And so they should— it’s a gorgeous fit on them.

6. G-IDLE – “Senorita”

It’s easy to forget that G-(IDLE) are still just rookie idols in the biz when you factor in how ridiculously well known they are. Despite debuting barely a few months ago, they seem to be CUBE Entertainment’s driving force at the moment. With the enchanting “Hann”, the girls seem to be trying out as many concepts as possible during this experimental phase. “Senorita” is a curious hand; a Latin inspired track, complete with trumpets…and Soyeon’s jarring rap? The music video itself also is a confusing mix between explosions and an advert for Kaja Beauty, which further baffles us. The track itself seems rather safe for G-(IDLE), but it’s clear that it’s merely a tester for now. The real question is what comes next, now that we’ve seen them play nice.

7. ITZY – “DALLA DALLA”

JYP’s new girl group has finally debuted and they’re all the craze! “DALLA DALLA” sounds like an absolute nightmare on the first listen, but it’s on the second one that you find yourself singing along to the addictive lyrics. Ingeniously manufactured in such a way to capture you, even when you least expect it, ITZY seems to be the perfect successor to their sunbaes, TWICE. Also, we’d be lying if we weren’t absolutely in love with their outfits.

8. ONF – “We Must Love”

Perhaps the most impressive comeback of the month, ONF completely wowed us with the quality of their music video. Creating a dystopian universe that plays with themes of science fiction, the boys of ONF take us on an adventure like no other. “We Must Love” incorporates little elements of a ton of genres; transporting us into a different time altogether. However the most notable one would be use of synthesisers, bringing us back to the old school days of the late 2000s.

9. HA SUNGWOON – “Bird”

Sungwoon stole all our hearts in one way or another; through Produce 101, HOTSHOT or Wanna One. Either way there’s no denying it; the guy is immensely talented. In “Bird”, he sings us a sweet love song. Using pastel colours and relaxing imagery, it feels like a song that was made for the Korean radiowaves. The chill nature of the song ties in well with the adorable factor of it, and once tied up with Sungwoon’s natural ability to hit high notes; we’ve got ourselves a winner.

And there we have it folks! Despite it being a short month, we certainly got served a pretty good meal; but did all of you dig in? February came close but no cigar— let’s hope that March has enough in store for our ravenous appetites. Till then, bon appetit!

Samsung takes it up with a notch with a 4000mAh battery and a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display in both prototypes. This means the batteries can last longer and are charged faster than usual.

This afternoon (Tuesday, 19th March), Soompi reported that “any indication of YG and BigBang (빅뱅) have been completely removed from Seungri’s official profile on Naver”.

Source: BIGBANGmusic

Last week (Wednesday, 13th March), YG Entertainment confirmed that the company had officially sever ties with the 28-year-old K-pop star. This came after Seungri announced on Instagram that he was quitting the entertainment industry amid the sex scandal.

As of today, Seungri’s profile on Naver no longer has any traces of his affiliation with BigBang and YG. Not only were all YG-related information deleted from his profile, the singer’s history with BigBang along with social media links (YouTube, Weibo, Facebook, and Instagram accounts) have been completely removed!

Even BigBang’s profile on Naver has removed Seungri from the line-up. Only the 4 other members – G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, and Daesung – remain. Fans are obviously upset at the company’s decision, saying that despite Seungri’s shortcomings, they shouldn’t wipe out his contributions in the past.

In similar news, Seungri has also been suspected of evidence (in regards to the scandal) from his phone. Commentator Go Sung Kook stated, “From what I’m aware of, (the fact that he deleted the photos) can be verified by the National Scientific, Criminal & Investigation Laboratory. It won’t be difficult for them to find out whose name is on that name tag. They just need to investigate it.”

So what’s the connection you ask? It is believed that the deleted photo of Seungri in police uniform can be linked back to his 2014 car accident (suspected of drunk driving) and Senior Superintendent Yoon, who is rumoured to be the police officer responsible for covering the criminal activity from the chatroom scandal.

After all these months, the jury is still out there on who is the father of Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝)’s newborn son.

As you may know, the 38-year-old actress gave birth to her third child, Marcus Cheung (張禮承), in November last year. However, the identity of the baby daddy has been shrouded in mystery.

So who is the father of Marcus (nicknamed “Little Prince”)? The Hong Kong media have put on their detective hats and came up with a list of suspects. These are men who have been dragged into the paternity puzzle:

  1. Unknown 65-year-old Singaporean F&B Tycoon
  2. 50-year-old Chinese billionaire Sun Donghai
  3. Ex-husband Nicholas Tse
  4. Chinese director and actor Stephen Chow
  5. 29-year-old Taiwanese actor He Menghuai

A source close to Cecilia revealed that the reason the Chinese beauty have refrained on talking about father’s child is because they had already broken up before the baby was born. “The reason why Cecilia only announced the birth of her son but didn’t disclose the identity of the father was because she had already broken up with him,” the insider said.

Meanwhile, Tiffany Chen (陳嵐), who was once close to Cecilia had another opinion. She previously suggested that Cecilia may not even know who the baby daddy actually is. Knowing that both ladies have bad blood, we should just take this with a grain of salt.

When news of her made headlines, Cecilia took to Instagram to post a cryptic message. “If you focus on the beautiful and positive things in life, you’ll attract beautiful and positive things in your life. Conversely, if you insist on focusing on the bad and negative things in life, then you’ll attract more negativity in your life,” she wrote.

The mystery continues…
