After the recent backlash Natalia Germanou received for her extremely altered photo on her latest cover shoot of Hello magazine, Elli Kokkinou spoke out about the unrealistic images women have to compete with.

When she was asked about the topic she said: “We don’t have horns on our foreheads we just have a little bit of cellulite.” The famous ‘Moro Mou Sorry’ singer is confident with her body and she praises her curves without shaming herself or other women for having cellulite.

The Greek artist added that Photoshoped covers is not something just women do. She has seen men that look completely different in real life but no one talks about it.

Elli admits that she is very scared to have any plastic surgery on her face but she is not denying that in the future she might do it. The singer is open about the fact she has tried some Botox injections, but expressed that she felt this procedure wasn’t the best for her image.

Kokkinou wanted a natural result but realised that she looked much older after the procedure since she wasn’t able to move her forehead.

Botox is one of the most famous and inexpensive alterations in the market. The injections are quick and easy that’s why many celebrities are obsessed with it.

Unfortunately the truth is that sometimes these kinds of interventions have an adverse affect, and instead of erasing some small wrinkles end up creating the frozen face effect making it obvious that the person had injections.

«Θέλω να διαβεβαιώσω τον κόσμο του ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΚΟΥ ότι η σημερινή (χθεσινή) απόφαση δεν έχει καμία επίπτωση στην ομάδα μας. Παραμένω Πρόεδρος, μέτοχος και εγγυητής του μέλλοντος του Ολυμπιακού μας”, δήλωσε ο κ. Μαρινάκης στην επίσημη ιστοσελίδα των ερυθρόλευκων.

Πρόσθεσε πως μετά το Διοικητικό Συμβούλιο της Δευτέρας 22/6 θα ανακοινωθούν οι αποφάσεις για τον σχεδιασμό της αγωνιστικής περιόδου 2015-2016, που έχει ήδη σχεδιαστεί και δρομολογηθεί, με σκοπό την κατάκτηση του Πρωταθλήματος και μια σπουδαία πορεία στο Champions League.

Χθες, ο ποινικός ανακριτής επέβαλε επίσης βαρύτατους περιοριστικούς όρους στον κ. Μαρινάκη, που αφορούν την παρουσία του στο Αστυνομικό Τμήμα δύο φορές το μήνα και εγγύηση 200.000 ευρώ, μέχρι στην εκδίκαση της υπόθεσης για “εγκληματική οργάνωση” στο ελληνικό ποδόσφαιρο.

The government has dismissed allegations of an abduction attempt of British children by a gang in Cyprus, noting that all the fuss made by British media over this issue was unnecessary and unsubstantiated.


In a written statement he made in the wake of allegations by the media that a gang attempted to abduct three British children in Protaras, a popular holiday resort, Deputy Government Spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos underlined that Cyprus has been and remains one of the safest tourist destinations all over the world, both for locals and foreigners and their children.

Papadopoulos said that British tourists staying at a hotel in Protaras had filed a complaint with the Police that an unknown man was taking pictures and approached their children. He noted that the police acted quickly and arrested a 19-year-old man of Bulgarian origin.

The man was questioned and his mobile phone was confiscated, however nothing inappropriate was found. The police also conducted investigations at this house, where nothing suspicious or inappropriate was found as regards this case or any related offences, Papadopoulos added.

He noted that moreover the police visited the hotel premises and took statements from the British parents that had filed the complaint as well as from their children, however nothing inappropriate came up.

“Consequently the Cyprus government considers that the fuss made by British media is unnecessary and unsubstantiated,” Papadopoulos added.

Katy Perry In Mykonos

Katy Perry In Mykonos

Hollywood superstar Katy Perry was spotted walking around the party island Mykonos, with her family, sister Angela and her 18-month-old niece.

The famous singer, who recently had a campaign with Moschino, chose to wear Missoni on her stroll. In her 1970’s inspired crochet striped jumpsuit Katy avoided paparazzi’s and almost succeeded in relaxing while being incognito. It seems that her colourful outfit was the right choice since people could hardly recognise her.

The ‘I kissed a girl’ singer paired her jumpsuit with some oversized cat-eye sunglasses and a fedora hat achieving a double win, hiding her face in order to keep her anonymity and also protecting her light skin from the strong Greek sun.

The tight fitting outfit, paired with a matching belt showed off her waist and exaggerated her hourglass figure.

It was reported that Katy kept looking at her phone during her stroll around the narrow streets of Mykonos, but unfortunately for fans, she didn’t update her social media with any snaps from her walk. Perhaps next time the famous singer will follow the lead of other stars like Kate Hudson and post photos of her from her Greek island holiday.

Panos Kiamos has just released a new animated music video for his single, “Apo Asteri Se Asteri”. The song was already very popular on YouTube and so fans have been anticipating the video for almost a month now.

The Greek singer just finished a string of appearances in Athens and is now in Australia promoting his brand new album. His tour is expected to be very successful, since Panos has worked hard this year to create and promote his new album.

Yannis Papadakos, the director, chose a different and unique way to orchestrate his latest music video starting with a close up frame of Panos Kiamos singing and then introducing us to the singer’s animated counterpart.

The drawings are of an altered reality far away on another planet, or star, where the trees are pink and lollipops are growing from the ground and flying is a normal phenomenon.

We love animated Kiamos, but check out the full music video here and see what you think:

The famous actress known for  movies “Almost Famous” and “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days” is currently in Greece.

Skiathos, a small Greek island in the north-west Aegean Sea has attracted many A-listers over the years including The Beatles, Tina Fey and Richard Branson.

The Hollywood celebrity hasn’t stopped updating her Instagram account since she arrived in Skiathos. It is a common ritual nowadays for superstars to be in touch with their fans through social media and Kate is no stranger to that trend.

In her Instagram photos we can see her posing in her summer outfits and showing off her toned figure.

Hudson loves Greece and the Mediterranean weather and she spends almost every summer in Skiathos. In the past we have seen her on the island with her son Ryder but this summer she preferred to have a break from her busy schedule and visit her favourite destination with close friends.

The Greek pop group Vegas performed their latest single “Apopse” last night in the semi-finals of the show ‘The voice’.

Two hours ago Vegas uploaded the new single onto their YouTube channel, making fans wonder when the music video will be available.

Melina, ZeRaw and DJ Airth, the three members of the group, have created multiple hits and dominated the Greek music industry since 2009.

The female singer of the group, who is known for her peculiar style, wore a long see-through white dress with red details, paired with long earrings and black peep-toe ankle-strap heels.

Vegas have been working very hard, reportedly rehearsing day and night as their official Facebook page reports they are now getting prepared for multiple live performances.

The creators and singers of the songs “Mi Stamatas” “Irthe I Stigmi” and “Tus Ponaei” have yet to release the official video for their new song but the fans are expecting it to be spectacular. The group has filmed high budget videos in the past; the video for the song “Akoma” was shot in the United States and included multiple scenes from the streets of New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Palm Beach and Miami.

Vegas’s modern aesthetic combined with their previous work is creating high expectations from the public but for the moment we can only enjoy the audio version of their latest song.

Here is a clip of their performance in last night’s episode of ‘The Voice’:

Talks between Greece and its lenders ended with no breakthrough on Sunday evening in Brussels, with Thursday’s meeting of eurozone finance ministers now being identified as the next opportunity for an agreement to be reached on the measures needed for Athens to unlock another 7.2 billion euros in bailout funds and avoid a potential default.

 Commission sources spoke of “significant gaps” in the discussions, where Greece was represented by Deputy Prime Minister Yiannis Dragasakis, State Minister Nikos Pappas and Alternate Minister for International Economic Relations Euclid Tsakalotos.

 After lengthier talks on Saturday, the Greek officials and the representatives of the country’s creditors met for just 45 minutes on Sunday before it was decided that there was not enough common ground for the negotiations to proceed. Asked by reporters outside the European Commission’s headquarters whether the brevity of Sunday’s meeting was a negative sign, Pappas said: “We’ll see.”

 According to a Commission spokesman, Athens and the institutions have not been able to agree on 2 billion euros worth of permanent measures for each year. He said the aim is to now try to reach a “positive assessment” by the Eurogroup meeting due to take place in Luxembourg on Thursday.

 Earlier, European Commission sources had described the discussions with the Greek delegation, which arrived in Brussels on Friday, as “difficult.”

 Athens, however, had been insisting over the weekend that the proposals it presented in Brussels would cover any fiscal gap and ensure that the primary surplus targets would be met. After the end of Sunday’s talks, Dragasakis issued a statement claiming that the lenders’ representatives were not authorised to discuss anything other than demands for cuts of 1.8 billion euros per year (roughly 1 percent of GDP) to pensions and another 1.8 billion euros per year to be raised from increases or changes in value-added tax.

 “The Greek government’s delegation stands ready for the completion of the negotiations to reach a mutually acceptable agreement,” said Dragasakis.
