Shawna Chyn’s ‘$2-m body’: Entertainer opens up about cosmetic surgery

Dancehall artiste Shawna Chyn is lighting up the world of Instagram with pictures showing off her bodacious new body.

She is the sexy poster girl of what great body contouring surgery can do for your self-esteem, and your marketability.

Body contouring surgery encompasses a number of different body sculpting techniques used by cosmetic surgeons to reshape almost any area of the body. Through body sculpting surgery, patients can effectively eliminate excess fat and skin that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.

Cosmetic surgeons employ a variety of body sculpting techniques to help their patients achieve lean, toned figures, including liposuction, tummy tuck, and body lift surgery.

“I took the fat out of my back, belly, armpit and between my legs and put it in my bottom. I am now a 38 cup in my breasts. After the surgery, I was basically a baby again so I had to have a personal nurse for two weeks,” Chyn told Loop Jamaica reporter Claude Mills.

The entertainer said she had to scrounge hard and budget to be able to ‘squirrel’ away the money to do the multi-million dollar surgery.

“I saved money for a really long time to do this surgery, I put the money in my special wishlist account, and I hid the ATM card so I couldn’t touch it and that’s how I was able to save for my buttlift, tummy tuck and breast enhancement,” she said.

She said she felt motivated to do the surgery as a gift to herself after seeing a close friend’s body laid out on a cold slab.

“That really shook me up and got me moving. Life is short, you got to go after the things you want,” she said.

Chyn actually felt compelled to have the surgery to legitimize her decision to become an artiste, to move from the sidelines as a manager to being the star in front of the camera.

“I did this for me, I have an awesome personality but my confidence was low because I had a chipped tooth, and I had a child so my tummy needed work and my breasts needed work. I just didn’t look like an artiste so I had to fix myself . I did my tooth first and then I did my body,” she explained.

Most people would have been scared to jump on a plane to a foreign country, where they know no one, to tackle a major new Life experience. But Chyn said she was not worried.

“I wasn’t scared about flying to the Dominican Republic to do the operation. It’s not like they were going to knock me out and take out one of my kidneys ,” she said, laughing.

“These guys were real professionals, they checked my vitals, my liver, my cholesterol and then they did the surgery. I woke up the next day as a new person and I stayed there for 14 days while they made sure I was ok.”

Now, the results are there for everyone to see. When she walks into a room, she sucks out all the oxygen with her bodacious new body and her 100 watt smile.

“My confidence is at all time high, my luxury doll body ah mad dem. I get a lot of compliments all the time now, and I can make my awesome personality shine through,” she said.

Final Kartel case management session on Thursday ahead of July 9 appeal

The final case management conference ahead of the July 9 appeal by international dancehall deejay, Adidja Palmer, popularly known as Vybz Kartel, and the three other men who were convicted of murder with him, is set for Thursday of this week.

The session is scheduled as the last exercise before Kartel, along with Shawn Campbell, another entertainer who goes by the stage name, Shawn Storm; and two other co-convicts, Kahira Jones and Andre St John, face the Appeal Court in relation to the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams in August 2011.

The appeal is expected to run for about three weeks.

Reports are that all is already in place for the big day in court on July 9, as the legal groundwork has been done and positioning on the matter between the prosecution and the defence has been established between the two sides.

The four men were convicted of Williams’ murder in March 2014, and were each given life sentences, with the recommended time-frames before eligibility for parole running up to 35 years in the case of Kartel.

Missy Elliot’s new found glow

Greasy, sweet and salty food are always tbe most prefferable option. When it comes to eating healthy,It’s never easy staying on the straight and narrow. Drinking only wated can at times be a bummer. But the benefits of eating healthy outweigh all of that. And being more cognizant of the foods you consume is important when you have to deal with certain health issues.

For Missy Elliott, she has Graves’ disease, and while eating or not eating certain kinds of food alone won’t allow you to avoid symptoms of the illness, it can help you take care of a body that’s already going through a lot.

So the 46-year-old rapper has been drinking nothing but water over the last few months when it comes to liquids, and has also been staying away from bread. According to Missy, the results have been great, as she as make changes the what she intake.

She proudly stated that it’s been 4 months and she have only drank water no other juices or soda & she also mentioned thst she had cut out bread & it was the hardest part for her. She also stated that she have never been awater drinker but this have helped her skin.

She is now planing to moving away from junk food, which will definately be a hard step to take “NOW the other thing if I can only cut out JUNK FOOD, sh-t that’s my weakness,” she said. “But if I can give up those other things I’ll fight that to! Maybe two cupcakes a month.”

This was definately not the first time Elliott has been able to change her diet. Around the time that she put out the Under Construction album in 2002, she lost 70 pounds by changing her habits. She transformed again in 2014, losing 30 pounds by eating healthy and working out to Shaun T’s T25 workout videos. But small changes, as Elliott proves this time around, can go a long way.

Leon Bailey for England? ‘Three Lions’ reportedly eyeing shock call up

Jamaican-born football sensation Leon Bailey may be in line for a shocking call up from England ahead of the World Cup, according to British media.

The 20-year-old, who’s making waves in Europe with his performances for Bayer Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga, reportedly qualifies to represent England by virtue of two grandparents having English passports.

This coupled with Bailey’s refusal to pledge his international future to Jamaica over an ongoing standoff between his adopted father/agent Craig Butler and the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) has created an opening for the English FA to lure the highly rated player to the ‘Three Lions’.

“Football Association bosses are understood to be working hard to convince him to represent England at international level,” reported The Sun newspaper based in the United Kingdom.

“(England coach) Gareth Southgate is believed to have sent scouts to watch him in action for Leverkusen this season… And the Kingston-born player is under consideration to be included in the squad for the final two friendly matches before the World Cup squad is named,” according to the report.

It is also being reported that the FA is hoping that Bailey’s strong friendship with England international Raheem Sterling, who is also Jamaican-born, will help their cause.

Bailey has represented Jamaica at the Under-23 level but has refused to make himself available for the senior team amid the continued disagreement between the JFF and Butler.

Butler has repeatedly indicated that he would not allow any players from his Phoenix Academy club to represent Jamaica if he did not have a role in the process.

Last October, Bailey was prevented from representing Jamaica against Saudia Arabia because Butler had pointed out during a meeting with members of the JFF and head coach Theodore Whitmore, that he wanted other players from his club – Phoenix Academy – to be invited to the team.

The meeting ended without any progress as Whitmore pointed out that he was only interested in inviting Bailey to the team.

Aidonia Working On Debut Album

Amidst a full roster of activities for the season, dancehall troubadour Aidonia is currently immersed in the studio working on material for his upcoming album.

Despite releasing ‘Project Sweat’ two years earlier, for which he received an honourable mention from Billboard Magazine and a top ten debut on the iTunes 100 Albums Chart. The ten-track compilation was presented as an EP and not an album. However, this latest body of work will mark the deejay’s official album debut since his emergence on the scene over a decade ago.

Alluding to the lengthy timeline for the album Aidonia says it’s all about timing and he wanted to deviate from the norm, but still, provide an offering that fans and the wider populous will appreciate musically.

“I want to provide fans with something exceptional that will transcend time and geographic boundaries. I am not a big fan of expendable music, hence I believe as an artiste it is extremely important to take the time and effort to mould each record on the album in the best way I possibly can. If I expect people to buy this it’s only fair that they receive their monies worth.” – Aidonia said.

“I want when someone downloads or puts my album into their player they can listen to the entire compilation from start to end without having to skip a song because it’s perceived as a sub-par effort.” – He added.

With no specific release date set, the ‘Yeah Yeah’ minstrel intimated that an approximate timeline would be for the first quarter of 2018. The compilation will be executively produced by his own 4th Genna Music imprint. When quizzed about possible collaborations a seemingly tight-lipped Aidonia says the album is still in its infancy and he doesn’t  want to divulge too much at this time but hinted at a few surprises.

Meanwhile, dominating the FM airwaves and social scene with tracks like ‘Yeah Yeah’, ‘Fire’ and ‘IG Girls’ the deejay is now gearing up for a series of performances in Freeport and Nassau (the Bahamas) later this month.

Internationally, Aidonia’s summer anthem ‘Yeah Yeah’ was recently added to the ‘B-List’ of BBC 1Xtra’s Playlist where it now enjoys premium daytime rotation among a plethora of international A-listers.
