|UK Monarchy: How Relevant?|
the flag-waving and the street parties to celebrate the marriage
of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday, bigger questions
about the relevance of the monarchy to modern Britain lurk like
uninvited guests. Extravagant living in a time of austerity
abrades public sensibilities; unearned privilege is resented,
while snobbery and elitism are seen as dangerously outmoded.

|COL Moamar Qadhafi is a vain man. Like
the other Arab dinosaurs he has his dyed hair, his designer
shades, his spoiled children and his compound full of sycophants.
He doesn´t want, one day, to be dragged from a rat hole

GIRL beauty Blake Lively darkened her
luscious blond locks for her role as
Carol Ferris in this summer´s upcoming
Green Lantern film, and now, the actress
is rocking fiery red tresses for yet
another movie. "It´s red," Blake told
Access Hollywood of her new look at
the Time 100 Gala in Manhattan on Tuesday,
where she was honoured for being named
one of the magazine´s 100 most influential
people of 2011. "I did it for a film
that I´m doing right now called, Hick."
Blake, who looked positively stunning
in a teal-coloured Zuhair Murad floorlength
gown - but who was admittedly also stuck
wearing "awful acrylic(s)" nails due
to her new role!
|Tusshar not afraid
of being typecast |
