Nolberto, a singer for the Argentinean band Alkala, was mid-way through his band’s performance at a carnival when he placed his hand on a metal pole and was electrocuted.
Nolberto was singing Yo Por Tu Amor (Me For Your Love) at the Ranchillos music carnival when he was shocked.
When Nolberto touched the pole, smoke instantly rose from his skin and he fell off the stage. The band immediately dropped their instruments and jumped off the stage to help the singer.
“The stage was damp, and when I touched the metal I suffered the shock,” Nolberto explained. “So to stop myself from being shocked I had to throw myself off the stage."
After a few minutes, Nolberto was revived and shockingly returned to the stage to finish his performance.
Nolberto said nothing like this has happened to him on stage before.
A court in Saudi Arabia has sentenced a man to three months in prison and 80 lashes for taking to Twitter to publicly accuse a Kuwaiti singer of adultery.
The Saudi man is reportedly a fan of a rival UAE singer named Ahlam, so in an effort to start rumors about singer Shams, he went on Twitter and accused the entertainer of committing adultery without providing any proof.
Shams filed a lawsuit against the Twitter user for making up the accusations, as well as posting fake pictures of her in compromising situations. Shams won the lawsuit, and now, the Twitter user, who claims he is “the lawyer of Queen Ahlam,” will face the consequences.
Under Sharia Law, anybody who accuses another person of committing adultery without proof will face lashes. Now that the Twitter user has been found guilty, he has been sentenced to 80 public lashes, three months in jail, and a fine of nearly $3,000.
Kelly Clarkson lost 18 pounds doing stuff that doesn’t seem SO crazy…sounds like she’s nipping those New Years Resolutions in the bud!
Says the singer:
“I lost 18 pounds. And I think that happens when you fall in love or date someone. If I’m going to be messing around, I gotta look good. There’s not a fad diet. I was working with a trainer, and she said, ‘You’d be amazed the amount of weight you can drop by halving your portions. I know it sounds crazy, but do it for two weeks and watch what happens.’ I just cut back my portions, I stopped eating late at night, and I work out a little more than I used to, and I literally dropped 18 pounds in a month. I think it happens when you get really busy. But when I’m on my off-time – girl, those 18 might come back.”
Sounds simple enough, and I definitely think keeping busy and a high activity level will drop those unwanted pounds (or at least help). And, Miss Clarkson has a very refreshing stance on fad dieting. She says:
“I’m not willing to do that. I’m willing to work a little bit because I want to be a healthy individual – which I always have been. I’ve put on weight, but that’s just what I’m happy with at that moment.”
I love this talented singer’s stance on her body image! Kelly’s got it all- a hot fiance, a booming career and a great outlook on life! LOVE IT!
