“Over the past 50 years Africa’s lion populations have plummeted from over 200,000 individuals back in the 1960’s to fewer than 21,000 today. A shocking number if you consider the size of that continent”

Situated on one of the most exclusive rooftops in New York, South African born artist Conor Mccreedy, Colin Cowie and Mike Eilertson hosted an exclusive launch event for Protecting African Lions (PAL) Foundation with VIP guests and friends. Investors, activists, entrepreneurs, supermodels, artists, philanthropists, actors and many more, all united together to bring awareness to the African Lion, a majestic creature whose population is rapidly decreasing. The mission of this global organization is to raise awareness and to start protecting lions from further decline against poaching, non regulated hunting and many other issues that will allow the lion to thrive in its natural wild habitat. It has established a foundation designed to protect lions and to become a key strategic partner for governmental and other affiliated charity programs such as Ubuntu Educational Fund, The Mara Foundation and many more.

According to a report from E! News, Lindsay Lohan is currently at a private residence with her sober coach, and plans to stay there until her European vacation where she will promote her new film “The Canyons. A letter from Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center states that Lindsay Lohan should have court-ordered therapy, in order to ensure her success with the program, “We feel that it is critical that Ms. Lohan have court ordered therapy, specifically three fifty-minute sessions a week for the next eighteen months,” the letter explains. “This should be done face to face while she is in town, and via skype or phone session is she is out of town. Our entire clinical team is in unanimous agreement that if these sessions are not required by the court and attendance not verified once a month to ensure accountability, it is a set up for almost certain failure.” In addition, LiLo‘s attorney says the actress is “doing amazing” after completing rehab.

Oscar winner Matt Damon was up for the task when asked by director Neill Blomkamp to bulk up for his role in Elysium. “[Neill] was so specific about what he wanted me to look like. He actually had a picture with my face tacked onto this guy with this body, and they literally hired me a trainer and I went to him with the picture,” Damon explained to Variety. “It was four hours a day in the gym — and I’m not 26 anymore, but I got in shape.”

Just weeks after it’s release, Mariah Carey‘s latest summer smash hit song, #Beautiful featuring Miguel has reached platinum status with 1000 000 digital downloads. In anticipation for the release of her upcoming album, tentatively titled “The Art Of Letting Go” due out soon, Carey seemed to have fun with the record, collaborating with a variety of rappers including Young Jeezy. In addition, pleasing her Spanish fans, the songstress even recorded a Spanglish version of the song, called #Hermosa. See iTunes for the available versions of “#Beautiful”.

Taking a leaf out of Justin Bieber‘s book, 20 year old Jonas Brothers singer, Nick Jonas took to Instagram to last Tuesday to post a shirtless selfie of his ripped body with a note attached, “I never do this but… Healthy living and fitness update. Post workout picture. #diabeticinshape #2.0”. In the photo the Jonas Brother, donning his Nike workout shorts, lifts his right arm above his head while staring mesmerizingly into the camera. Guess, if you’re working hard and looking good, you may as well show it off! Check out Nick’s Instagram here.
