THIS IS THE ROLL

THE REIGN de Harnaaz Sandhu as Miss Universe 2021 went into agony. The Hindu beauty, whose weight gain made her title falter, is preparing to crown her successor on January 14, 2023 in New Orleans, (Ernest N. Morial Convention Center), the official date -and venue- of the beauty pageant that will celebrate its 71st edition, which, this time, has been clouded by rumors that point to its change of ownership. Moreover, it is assured that the franchise is already negotiated with an important North American consortium and that its sale will be made public in February. In any case, the participating countries (80 in total) were notified that their representatives should be in the aforementioned city of the state of Louisiana, the first days of the new year.
VERY QUIRKY It will be the tenth edition of Miss Grand International 2022, which started in Indonesia, where the Venezuelan Luiseth Materán will seek to repeat the feat of Valentina Figuera, who in 2019 won the crown for the first time. The new staging of this contest, (the fourth in the Grand slam of beauty contests), has had certain restrictions for the organizers, since the religion of the Asian nation (Islamism) prohibits women from showing themselves scantily clad. However, in their first public appearance, the more than 70 candidates paraded in discreet swimsuits and in the next parades, the dresses must adhere to that pattern. Materán has caused an impact in the media covering the event.

AGAIN El Chyno Miranda returns to be a “breeding ground” for speculation about his current state of health. Some international media assure that the Venezuelan artist had a new relapse and that the conditions of the clinic where he is hospitalized are deplorable and also he is not cared for by psychologists and psychiatrists but by “coachs” who have contributed little to his improvement. Argentine journalist Javier Ceriani and his partner Elisa Beristain, hosts of the program “Gossip no like” continue to make delicate statements about Chyno’s situation. They recently stated that the singer tried to escape from the rehabilitation center where he is confined and “was captured a few meters from the place due to his inability to move.” Truth, lie or mere speculation?
THE ROLL by Ricky Martin and his nephew, Dennis Yadiel Sánchez Martin, “it stings and spreads”. Now the 23-year-old claims to have evidence of the alleged sexual assaults that the artist would have committed against him. “The sexual crimes division of the Puerto Rico Police opened an investigation for the evidence that we have presented and everything that has happened, since I was 12 years old,” Sánchez Martin told journalist Alex Rodríguez, from the program “Sit down who can ” (Univisión.) While Martin’s lawyers reject the accusations. “They are grossly offensive and completely unrelated to reality. It’s time for the media to stop giving this individual the oxygen of publicity that he so badly needs.”
LITTLE SURPRISE caused the list of nominees for the Latin Grammy 2022, whose delivery will take place in Las Vegas on November 17. As expected, Bad Bunny has 10 mentions in categories such as two of the main ones: album of the year and recording of the year. The Puerto Rican is joined by another compatriot among the most nominated artists: Rauw Alejandro (8) who, along with Shakira, are nominated in the recording of the year category for the song “Te congratulations.” Christina Aguilera, with her return to Spanish after two decades, shares 7 nominations with Jorge Drexler and Rosalía; while Camilo, the biggest nominee of 2021, appears in six categories. Rosario Flores will receive the award for musical excellence.
