CAROLA'S BOOBS STEAL THE SHOW, SVT APOLOGIES

Update! Another thing got Swedes talking last night: Carola's boobs when she was giving away an award. This is not the first time her boombs cause headlines; her misfortunate adventures in the 80's in Japan wer explained with her boobs being too big for Japanese market. Ok.... Or was it the song ? Anyways, Carola apologies and says she thinks the dress is stylish and elegant (even her friends said so) and she's a mature woman in her 40s, not a 16-year-old girl and looks like one. The Swedish Oscars, Guldbagge awards were given out last night. Carola was there as a guest star to sing Barbra Streisand's The way we were when honoring the movie stars who passed away during 2012. However, the cameras were too much on Carola, not on the stars showed in photos in the background and that upset many viewers as that part of the show was to celebrate them, not Carola. Oh well...  The producer of the show tells in Aftonbladet the part of the show was made the sam

ESC 2016: MEDIA BRINGS OUT SERGEY LAZAREV'S NUDE PHOTOS

Well, I have been waiting for this. The photos have been online for years. The British rubbish media has made a story of Sergey Lazarev's "fetish porn past". LOL. How funny. Kreml and Putin are apparently very worried and denying their entrant has a lurid past. And trying to get them off internet. Yeah right. LOL. Photos are explicit. Yeah, you can see his bare bum. All in all this is just so funny. And for you enjoyment here are the "porn" pics.    Oh Daily Star,  You are the only one, such a source of joy! I have originally posted this photo already in January 2011

BLOGILKAR'S 2014: THE MOST READ (NAKED) POSTS

Another year has passed and I can't but thank you all who followed me, read me, and in some cases looked at the post photos only. That's the case - I suspect - with the most read post, Serebro 's naked photo must have something to do with it :-) Maybe that's the case also with the second most read one, as surprisingly it's the lyrics of Mikko Pohjola 's UMK 2014 runner up Sängyn reunalla that came along with its tastefully bare video. And yes, also the third one might be helped by the photo, Twin Twin wearing nothing but their socks.... Finally at number 4 we have someone fully dressed up, Valentina Monetta 's honest and bare confessions of her three Eurovision adventures as chatted in San Marino this summer at her house. At number five we have them again, Twin Twin . Naked again. I'm starting to worry about you readers.... or should I worry about my own editorial skills? Number six is quite a surprise, a Greek friend of Alkaios or Iakovos Gogua fr
