Throughout Rihanna’s pregnancy, the couple made international headlines multiple times for the eye-catching outfits and wholesome nature. Back in April, Riri told Vogue that “there’s no way “[she’s] going to go shopping in no maternity aisle”, expressing her desire to redefine maternity wear and what is considered ‘decent’ for pregnant women.

Since releasing her Anti album in 2016, Rihanna has yet to release any major music projects, appearing in a number of films and continuing to develop her Fenty Beauty brand. Meanwhile, A$AP has been putting out a number a tracks, recently sharing new song “D.M.B” with Rihanna co-starring in the video.

European Parliament President Roberta Metsola donned a vyshyvanka this Thursday to show support with Ukrainians celebrating Vyshyvanka Day. 

The festival is celebrated every third Thursday of May and seeks to preserve the original folk traditions of creating and wearing ethnic embroidered Ukrainian vyshyvankas. 

The vyshyvankas are believed to have protective powers according to folklore. Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė invited European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, European vice-president Vera Jourova and Metsola to wear a vyshyvanka.

They were asked to wear it as a symbol of EU belief in the power of Ukraine. Metsola accepted the invitation and tweeted out: ‘Ukrainians’ fight for freedom is our fight too.’

If you aren’t excited enough for Stranger Things Season 4, which comes out after what seems to have been forever, it has been revealed that the last episode will be over two hours long. 

And the first instalment of the next season is set to drop in just a matter of days on Friday May 27th. The show’s creators have built up excitement with some exclusive information.

Matt and Ross Duffer revealed that two episodes in the upcoming season will be feature-length. That means two Stranger Things movies in one season. 

It was already known that the new season will be featuring longer episodes and more of them, but the Duffer brothers had not previously revealed just how long they would run for. 7 and 9 are set to be movies in their own right. 

They explained that this new season will be a big one, and given that the characters will be spread out over many locations, they had more plot to work with. 

They also stated that, since season five will be the last one, season 4 will be revealing a lot of vital information for what is to come for when it ends. And if you’ve forgotten what happened in previous seasons, you have around a week to binge them all.

Man acquitted of ecstasy trafficking charges after 18 years

18 year court case of ecstasy trafficker comes to an end
May 19 2022 Share

A 37-year-old man from Paola has just Beene acquitted of trafficking ecstasy when he was 19. The court case has spanned a whopping 18 years, with the judgement handed down on Tuesday. 

Magistrate Elaine Mercieca declared Tyrone Fenech not guilty of charges against him, after his unassisted statements to interrogators were declared inadmissible. Important witnesses did not testify in the proceedings. 

The case took so long due to parallel constitutional and European cases over his unassisted statement. 

Fenech had been arrested along with another person in St Julians after police found two small plastic bags and LM150 in cash in his possession. He was subsequently charged with trafficking the drug in February 2004, as well as possession of ecstasy and cannabis. 

The court observed that the officers who seized the substances never testified, pointing out that the prosecution had closed its evidence before the expert appointed to analyse the substances could testify to his findings. 

The only remaining evidence were mobile phones seized from the accused. However, the prosecution had not summoned witnesses to testify as to who had physically retrieved the devices and in what circumstances.
