Super model and actress Hailey Bieber said she is lucky to have a husband like Justin Bieber, refuting rumours of the ace singer not treating her properly. Hailey was speaking at singer Demi Lovato's podcast '4D With Demi Lovato', dailymail.co.uk reported.
Talking about her popstar husband and rumours around their marriage, Hailey said: "I think one of the biggest things is you have to know what the truth is behind everything. You know, there's so many narratives that float around about me, about him, about us together." She addressed the rumours point blank as she said: "There's one big fat narrative that goes around that's like, 'Justin is not nice to her, and that he mistreats her', and I'm just like, it's so far from the truth, and it's the complete and utter opposite."
Hailey went on to set the record straight about Justin, who she married in 2018. She said: "I really am lucky to say I'm with someone who is extremely respectful of me, who makes me feel special every single day. So when I see the opposite of that, I'm just like, 'Huh?' And everybody around who knows us personally would say the same thing." (IANS/ MBI)

Actress and fitness icon Malaika Arora says that it is a misconception that Indian food is loaded with fat. She says: "There is a reason why we term an Indian meal as a well balanced one, because it is complete with nutrients, the goodness of vegetables and the rich flavour of Indian spices." Malaika has recently launched her own food bowl brand called Nude Bowls, the idea behind which is that healthy food can be tasty and wholesome too.
"There is a perception that healthy food is not delicious, or that nutritious food doesn't taste as good and I wanted to break this myth. Nude Bowls promises the goodness of flavours without compromising on taste and indulgence and guarantees transparency of all ingredients without using artificial flavours and colours," she told IANSlife.

Sharing that food is an integral part of self-care for her and "being mindful of what we eat and what we choose to expose our body to is as important as exercising for our holistic well-being", the Bollywood star says that she wanted to share what she consumes daily which are simple and nutritious meals that do not have any undisguised flavours but are also delicious. The actor has curated each dish, keeping in mind that it adds all the required nutrients in a single bowl with easy ingredients from my kitchen.
"The menu comprises of items created with easily available ingredients to offer wholesome meals without missing out on taste and nutrition. In the near future, I will also expand the menu to seasonal favourites and create new concoctions based on the reactions and feedback I receive." Nude Bowls are available to order on EatSure, a food delivery app. "We were able to launch in 200 locations at one go which helped us reach more customers easily and quickly as compared to dine-in," says Malaika when asked if a retail presence could soon be expected of the new brand.

If I am asked to trace out the biggest problem of our country then I would say that the biggest problem of our country is that we dont realise our strength and this allows our enemies and our rivals to take chances. This not only happened in the British era or before, it is still very much in our society and this is always pulling us back. A deeper analysis of the thing will make us realise that this illusive perception of our strength contrarily our weakness is a result of our internal battle - our fighting within ourselves - political or otherwise. The people of other countries have always taken the chance of our internal division making us suffer.
Whether it be natural resources, intellect or skilled workforce - we had it in plenty but it was never fully utilised because we have never been able to stay united and fight for a common goal. We had everything but we always failed to exert our full potential because of our internal differences. Now, I believe that if this internal difference is removed and we can stand united against the odds there is nothing that can stop us from achieving our goal. So, I'd like to see my country to be united as a whole without fighting with each other and moving towards a bright economic future.

There is another problem and that is poverty. This is a problem that really ails me. I cannot believe that in a country that is rich in every possible way there can be any poor people. I would like to live in a country where there will be no poverty. People will have the liberty and the affordability to buy a square meal. This is possible - I know. What we need is proper planning and a mechanism so that our wealth is properly distributed.
Thirdly, being an artist, I would like to live in a country where people can opt for exercising in their own way. There will be no embargo, no restrictions and people will have the freedom to express their artistic capabilities. I would also like to have a government that will give more opportunities to the artists so that they can choose their artistic careers.
