Australian jeweler Ann Middleton has unveiled her own costume intricately garnished with over 220 diamonds and pearls, a sparkling ensemble worth AUS$1 million [583,302 Pounds]. Middleton reportedly spent hundreds of hours into creating the world’s most expensive bikini.
The famous jewelry designer has also created pieces for Sir Elton John and President Bill Clinton in the past. This time around, she worked in collaboration with swimwear label Sunseeker to craft the 133-carat piece which will be modeled by Samantha Harris [model in the picture] at the inaugural Gold Coast Fashion Festival in Queensland at the end of November.
Middleton has been creating jewelry for a whooping 39 years and has used almost 100 Australian South Sea pearls in this novel creation.
In her interview with Australian newspaper, The Herald Sun, Middleton said, “Hundreds of hours went into creating the swimsuit and we used as many Australian gems and pearls as possible. I hadn’t done a swimsuit before but when I saw the design, I knew I wanted to create a seemingly simple, perfect, beautiful garment.”
Festival organizer Leanne St George said the beach-inspired showcase will draw attention to the Gold Coast and Queensland: ‘It was a wonderful coup to have Samantha, Ann and Sunseeker come on board with this project. Our lifestyle and fashion is unique. It’s time to take them to the world.”
What do you guys think of this unbelievably expensive piece of art?
Lady Gaga is no stranger to head-spinning and jaw-dropping performances but last night, the Grammy winner lured the king of R&B R. Kelly into partaking in her stage antics. The duo performed her hot new joint, Do What U Want on the Saturday Night Live and reports say it was like a ‘live sex scene’.
According to necholebitchie, there was a lot of ass-slapping, dry humping and straddling going on during their performance and if this isn’t the most awkward performance you may ever see…then nothing may ever happen again!
Reports claims, the performance even got more exotic as Kelz tried to get out of the creepy, pervert box he’s been in over the last years but it also brought back memories of Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s famous MTV VMA performance.
However, they both appeared and remained fully dressed, both are single and Gaga manged to keep her tongue in her mouth.
Yeezuz rap star, Kanye West is now dissing US president Barack Obama for calling him a ‘jackass’. The rapper disclosed in an interview with 107.9FM in Philadelphia yesterday morning that ‘I don’t care about the president; I care about my music bringing joy to people”.
Kanye is slapping a ban on the world’s number two most powerful man questioning what he [president] brings to the world and what is he doing to help the world? As for himself, he is all about his music and the impact it creates to the world. “He should have mentioned my baby mama’s name coz we both are from Chicago” the rapper went on in his recent interview, “I am all about the thoughts and impact not about me being called a jackass,” he added.
However, to move on with what his DONDA fashion line will be doing next, Kanye had to end with this, “I’m not gonna mention him [Obama] no more…I’m pass that. That’s out of my thoughts because it’s like lowering my pride.”
Wow! Seems that ‘jackass’ comment hit Kanye real hard for him to spit flames like that on public radio caring less what the president thinks. Question is, why didn’t he ask ‘jesus’ how to go about this beef in Seattle?
Guys, what do you think: Kanye West beefing Barack Obama?
Kukere’ and ‘Your Waist’ crooner, Iyanya Mbuk is really mad with a fan and if he gets the chance, he may pummel the naughty and mischievous enthusiast to a pulp.
You may wonder why Iyanya, who is known for his calmness and humility, is this mad. Well, the impish admirer, after seeing one of Iyanya’s shirtless and sensual photos on Instagram, displaying his awesome apps, wrote on Twitter that the singer may be gay.
Iyanya did not find this amusing and fired back at the fan.
See the picture that caused the problem.

Ex-girlfriend sues $338m lotto winner for a share of the winnings after he dumped her following jackpot
Just eight months after winning a $338million Powerball jackpot, Pedro Quezada, 45, is being sued by his former live-in girlfriend for a portion of the fortune.
During a press conference last March, Quezada told reporters that he would buy his girlfriend, Ines Sanchez ‘whatever she wants’ with the money. But now his lawyer is arguing that Sanchez doesn’t deserve any of the winnings because the couple, who lived together for 10 years, was never legally married.
Sanchez’s attorneys disagree. They say Quezada purchased the winning lottery ticket with money earned by the couple. In 2006, Quezada and Sanchez jointly opened a bodega in Passaic, New Jersey, which was run by Quezada’s son Casiano. Sanchez and Quezada have a child together as well as children from previous relationships.
Last spring Quezada drew the winning ticket worth $338.3million. It’s the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history. After taxes Quezada received a check for $152million.
On Friday Superior Court Chancery Judge Margaret Mary McVeigh decided not to throw out the lawsuit, but she did deny Sanchez’s request to freeze Quezada’s lottery money until a trial and verdict determines if she is entitled to a portion of the winnings.
According to The Record, the judge explained that while she acknowledged the long term relationship Sanchez and Quezada shared as well as Sanchez’s contributions to the household, she legally she could not restrain Quezada’s assets.
Clifton resident Pedro Quezada,who won millions in the Powerball lottery, appears in Superior Court on Nov. 8, 2013. A judge deniedd Quezada’s former girlfriend Ines Sanchez, whom he lived with for 10 years, request to freeze Quezada’s assets until her fair share can be determined in court.‘That’s what money does to people: It changes positive relationships into bad ones,’ McVeigh said. ‘It doesn’t always enhance a relationship, or bring out people’s better qualities. Her [Sanchez’s] life has been up-ended by this winning ticket…But I am a judge. I don’t create the law. I have to follow it,’ she said.
The Record reported that the judge went on to explain that ‘something inwriting’ was needed.
‘Our Legislature has spoken. It specifically said, ‘For these types of arrangements, relationships, to be upheld there needs to be a writing. You cannot go forward with these types of relationships without something in writing.’
Sanchez has moved out of the recently purchased Clifton, New Jersey home the couple shared and has filed a domestic violence claim against Quezada, The Record reported. Quezada’s attorney declined to comment on that claim.
Sanchez’s attorney says that a large chunk of the lottery winnings is already gone, claiming $57 million has been sent to Quezada’s native Dominican Republic, $5 million was given away, $300,000 was spent on the home in Clifton, and $20 million can’t be located, the newspaper reported.
Powerball is played in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The chance of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is about 1 in 175 million.
