With Leicester City on the verge of winning the league, a Champions League trophy is the only thing on Man City's mind. Real Madrid's defense will definitely be tested today.

Teenage Tue, 26 Apr 2016 07:50:35 GMT Liam of 1D also interested in R&B? http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/teenage/Liam-of-1D-also-interested-in-R-B What was truly surprising is the fact that they were collaborating with boy band member Liam Payne (of One Direction). Liam has since denied having a single out and has called it 'something he gets up to on a weekend' and a 'one take scratch demo'. In a series of tweets addressing the matter he went on to joke that he needs to guard his projects better (perhaps referring as well to One Direction fans' tendency to leak their albums early).

If you're black step back, if you're brown stick aroun' and if you're white you're alright. That saying has been around for decades - ages even - and unfortunately seems no less true in our country today. In our mostly black population darkskinned people are bleaching their skin and dark-skinned men and women try to marry or enter into romantic relationships with persons with lighter skin than them because that is advancement. And what greater joy than to have a light-skinned, brown, bouncing baby on your hip or to tote around and show off to your friends and family? Teenage Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:59:45 GMT Rihanna's new video keeps you needing more http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/teenage/Rihanna-new-video-keeps-you-needing-more The sequence of events in the video are revealed through flashbacks. At the beginning of the video, Rihanna is seen with a fun walking modestly smearing the glasses of the doors. We then see an exotic club which is juxtaposed with the calm ocean seen at the beginning. Blowing puffs of smoke, Rihanna goes to Harlem, supposedly, masked on a bike, where she collected her barrel. Teenage Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:50:49 GMT Bob Marley Snapchat filter causes outrage http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/teenage/Bob-Marley-snapchat-filter-causes-outrage 4/20 or 4:20, celebrated today, is also called Weed Day or Pot Day and as the name suggests it's all about marijuana. It's not a recognised holiday but with more dialogue surrounding legalising marijuana in more places in the world, it has become something of a popular culture phenomenon in its own right.

Teenage Tue, 19 Apr 2016 10:13:32 GMT 5 takeaways from Euro football this week http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/teenage/5-takeaways-from-Euro-football-this-week-18416 Barcelona moved from being in a position to repeat the treble to looking like they might not win anything. Even if they win the league and Copa del Rey, their season has been tarnished with their streak of bad football. They won't have much to celebrate. I had said previously that Barcelona has been lucky this season. Their luck has obviously ran out. Barcelona was ushered out of the Champions League this week by Atletico Madrid which must have hurt them. Barcelona also suffered their third consecutive defeat this weekend, this time losing to Valencia 1-2. Barcelona hasn't won a La Liga match since their shock defeat in El Clasico and no one is certain why.

Griezmann took Atletico Madrid in front on the aggregate score by scoring a beautiful goal and a penalty, securing a spot in the semi finals. Griezmann played with no fear on a memorable night for Diego Simeone and the home fans.
