Ariana Grande sued by Artist for using his Concept in Music Video An artist, Vladimir Kush is suing singer Ariana Grande for using his idea in her music video ‘God is a woman’. In the video released in 2018, the singer can be seen dancing in a silhouette while in a candle flame. According to the artist, the concept was taken from a painting he did 20 years ago about a woman in candlelight which he named ‘The Candle’ and ‘The Candle 2’. Both paintings feature the woman as a wick raising alarm over a cloudy sky… _____________________________________ Link in Bio #lucipost #trending #viral #blog #blogger #nigeria #naija #naijanews #nigerianews #us #arianagrande #painting #vladimirkush

Porsche Fails To Sell At Auction Because Bidders Can’t Understand Auctioneer’s Accent

View this post on Instagram

TONIGHT: THE ANCESTOR . After months of anticipation, the antecedent of Porsche’s historical evolution, the oldest car to wear the iconic P O R S C H E letters, the 1939 #Porsche Type 64, is crossing the #RMMonterey block this evening at the @montereyconferencecenter. . The Type 64 represents the prewar genesis of one of the greatest postwar car marques, the missing link between Volkswagen and the 356 No. 1, and its design signaled traits we’ve seen throughout seven decades of Porsche production in some of the legendary marque’s most sought-after models. . Highly documented, unrestored, and having had just three owners since the Porsche family themselves, the Type 64 is truly an automotive artefact. . Watch Day 3 of #RMMonterey live at the link in our bio beginning at 5:30pm PT.

A Porsche from 1939 for sale at RM Sotheby’s in Monterey Beach, California didn’t sell because of the auctioneer’s Dutch accent. Word has it that bidders didn’t know what numbers he was calling and it didn’t reach it’s estimate of $22 million… ouch!
