    VVF is in the public domain. So nobody can claim personal knowledge of it. Nobody can say he created the idea of such a social and medical condition. Accordingly, the petitioner cannot, with any sense of conviction, say that her work had been pirated.

    “Behind the Veil” is still a manuscript in someone’s desk drawers. Secondly, the petitioner would have to prove that the defendant copied verbatim or near verbatim sections and pages of the manuscript. This is important also considering that the defendant has claimed her work on this subject had predated the existence of this manuscript.

    The petitioner should just go and find a publisher for her work and allow live and let live to prevail. The petitioner is looking for 100 million Naira damages and others for a work still in her desk drawers. What a way to obstruct intellectual pursuit!

Lauryn Hill’s daughter, Selah, speaks on how mom traumatized her as a child (Video)

Published

on

Veteran singer, Lauryn Hill’s 22-year-old daughter, Selah Marley, whose father is Rohan Marley, son of Bob Marley, has spoken expressly about her relationship with her parents.

Speaking candidly with the public as she went live on Instagram on Monday, the model talked about the “trauma” she endured about having an absent father and a mother who used to discipline her during her childhood.

Selah blamed all that she went through on the absence of her father and her mother’s relationship with her then-partner, Rohan Marley.

“Honestly guys, I’m just hurting. I can’t even front that I’m not,” she said. “I’ve been hurting for so much of my life and so much of my life has been me avoiding how much I’m really hurting just from the circumstances.”

Detailing how her mother used to spank her, Selah said her mom is “an amazing woman” but said “she would spank us to no avail” before giving an example by using a whipping motion with her phone cord.

“She was just very angry. So, so, so, so, so, so angry. She was literally not easy to talk to and then half the time we didn’t live with her. I lived with my grandparents half the time… It’s crazy, I’m playing this trauma back in my head as I speak to you.”

“She would have one of the kids “go get the belt” and when they returned, she would hold their hands up so they were hanging “as she beat us. Literally, just like that.”

“And then the threats, the constant threats… That belt man. That’s that slave sh*t. That was some slavery sh*t. All Black parents were on that sh*t.”

Selah’s father, Rohan Marley, is one of the sons of music legend Bob Marley. He met Lauryn Hill in 1996, and they went on to have five children together until their relationship finally came to an end in 2009.

I have mental issues and it renders me non-functional as a human sometimes, Lady Gaga reveals

Published

on

Pop singer and actress, Lady Gaga has revealed that she has mental health issues.

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, made the revelation about her mental health during a chat with Zane Lowe on Apple Music‘s Beats 1 radio station today Tuesday, August 11.

Lady Gaga, 34, said that she has found olanzapine- a drug used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar people, very helpful.
She said:

 ‘I wrote a song on Chromatica called 911, and it’s about an anti-psychotic that I take and it’s because I can’t always control things that my brain does and I have to take medication to stop the process that occurs.

”I know I have mental issues and I know that they can sometimes render me non-functional as a human.’

How can I use my humanity to focus on something that I believe to be infinitely more important than what I’ve been through? Which is what the medical community has done.

‘It made me think about the helpers of the world and how their mental states are and how they don’t necessarily have the help that they need.

‘When this is all over whatever that means and things get better whatever that means, who will be there to support them’

She continued:

‘I don’t lack self-awareness and I do understand I’m not the only human on the planet that suffers and I think I have it pretty f****** good and I’m grateful for what I have.’

This is not the first time that Gaga is talking about her mental state.

Speaking in January at Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life In Focus Tour in Florida she revealed that she went on medication after being repeatedly raped at the age of 19, leaving her with PTSD.

‘I had a psychotic break, I’ll explain what happened. Here’s my brain, here’s the center.

And then, I was triggered really bad in a court deposition, and this part of the brain where you stay centered and you don’t dissociate, right? It went like this,’ she said, before slamming her hand down.

‘It slammed down.  And my whole body started tingling, I started screaming,’ she said.

Asked by Oprah where she was at, she replied, ‘I was in the hospital.’

“It’s very difficult to describe what it feels like other than that at first, you are completely tingling from head to toe, and then you go numb, but what is essentially happening is the brain goes, ‘That’s enough, I don’t want to think about this anymore, I don’t want to feel this anymore,’ boom,’ she said, slamming her hand down again.

She said:

 ‘I know I have mental issues and I know that they can sometimes render me non-functional as a human’
‘And literally break from reality as we know it,’
 Oprah added.

‘You break from reality as we know it, you have no concept of what’s going on around you,’ she explained.

Gaga said she was evaluated by a psychiatrist, much to her initial annoyance.

”Can you get me a real doctor?” Gaga recalled asking.  ‘He was like, ‘Hey, so nice to meet you.’ And he sat down and I was like, ‘I need medicine, I don’t feel well. I can’t feel… help me.’ And then he just said, ‘I need you to explain to me what happened today.’ And I was so annoyed.

‘But I’m telling you this story because even I, who run Born This Way foundation with my mother, was irritated that they brought a psychiatrist in to help me. That’s how gone I was.’
