The Celebrities Who Are Cleaning Their Own Homes In Lockdown

During the current coronavirus crisis, sales of cleaning products have doubled as we become more stringent about cleaning. It’s not just the everyday public who have been scrubbing their homes though - lockdown has meant that celebrities all over the world have been doing their own cleaning. Nicole Sherzinger posted pictures of herself mopping the floor, Victoria Beckham has become obsessed with the dishwasher, and even Joan Collins appeared in Hello! polishing the windows. This may not have been out of choice, but we do appreciate seeing them on social media, sharing their cleaning struggles.

Celebrities Utilizing Psychics In All Aspects Of Their Lives

22% of Americans have consulted a psychic or medium, according to You Gov. While they might not be overly popular with the general public, there’s one group of individuals that turn to psychics in their droves: celebrities. George Clooney, Khloe Kardashian, Brad Pitt and Jenny McCarthy are just a few famous faces who have confessed to seeing a psychic. But just how do celebrities benefit from psychics in a way that others don’t?

As its name implies, St. Basil’s Cathedral [wiki] on the Red Square in Moscow, Russia, is named after Saint Basil (who is also known as Basil Fool for Christ). The story goes that in the 1500s, an apprentice shoemaker/serf named Basil stole from the rich to give to the poor. He also went naked, weighed himself with chains, and rebuked Ivan the Terrible for not paying attention in church. Most of the time, admonishing anyone with name “the Terrible” wasn’t such a good idea, but apparently Ivan had a soft spot for the holy fool (as Basil was also known) and ordered a church to be built in his name after Basil died.

St. Basil’s Cathedral, a Russian Orthodox church, sports a series of colorful bulbous domes that taper to a point, aptly named onion domes, that are part of Moscow’s Kremlin skyline (although the church is actually not part of the Kremlin).

Oh, and Ivan the Terrible lived up to his name after he supposedly blinded the architect who built the church so he would not be able to design something as beautiful afterwards.

  1. I hit the cancer sticks for most of my life and quitting was literally impossible. I tried all of the quitting products but none did any good. Then I heard about the smokeless cigarette. The smokeless cigarette. The smokeless cigarette uses a nicotine liquid that holds just nicotine. No smelly smoke at all. They have completely saved my life.
