Miley Cyrus: Fooling Everyone & Earning Millions of Dollars


Ifrane – Gore, disgusting, raunchy and inappropriate are only few of the words used today to describe who was once called the princess of disney, Miley Cyrus.

Miley went, some might say step by step, other say out of nowhere in becoming a sex-reliant, sex-selling singer with a rock’nd roll style in the way she dresses, the way she sings and even the way she talks and behaves. It could be closer to an animal locked for so long under layers of falseness and suddenly having the full and utmost liberty to do whatever, buy whatever and sing whatever she wants. Realizing she is no longer bound either by law or parents to be that sweet little girl called Hannah Montana. But, Miley may have just won the odds in making it to the other side, that is the adults world. A step many child stars find very hard and very challenging to do, Lindsay Lohan and most recently Amanda Bynes suffered and are suffering from problems in dealing with stardom, fame, stress and the fear, the fear of losing it all or the fear that they will not find a project that will push they’re careers further up. Miley’s latest two videos went well beyond 600 Million views making her latest look-changing more profitable for her and her brand since, well, since her peak back in 2008-2009. Soures confirm to TIWA that Cyrus is now earning as much as $80 Million a year from endorsements alone!! guess all that jumping and twerking is paying off nicely 😉

Miley has succeeded in guaranteeing that her name will never, always, be attached to her Hannah Montana era and although people are sometimes, or most of the times, left with a feeling of disgust, I advice hem to forget the old Miley Cyrus and focus on the new one as a new, emerging artist with a new, different and probably controversial style.

One of the most unticipated series: Intelligence 2013

Ifrane – Just saw the trailer, just saw the actors performances, just saw the comeback (true comeback) of a Lost star, Intelligence seems action-full, funny and dramatic. What more can a blogger asks right.

So lets get one with it! Intelligence is an upcoming American cyber-themed action/adventure television series that is expected to premiere on February 24, 2014 on CBS says my lil friend Wikipedia. My response to that however, was a bit different: WHAT THE F IS WRONG WITH THE PRODUCERS! Waiting till 2014 to let people enjoy this AMAZING series! To put you closure to its, mmm concept, lets just say it mixes between NCIS L.A., Hawaii Five-0 and covered with a taste of Homeland. ITS A MUST WATCH (when it comes out) not to mention it stars the 44 year-old yet still sexy as hell Josh Holloway.

Lets hope Intelligence is as good as it sounds, because we sure damn need new series to feed our addiction 🙂 Incase you are looking for an in-depth article, check Wikipedia 😉 just sayin


Lindsay Lohan

Ifrane – Lindsay Lohan is stepping in (AGAIN) to save her childhood mansion from going into foreclosure and this time, Lilo is BUYING THE HOUSE from mother Dina Lohan.

TIWA has learned that Lindsay Lohan is working with her financial team to provide sufficient funds to buy her childhood mansion from Mother Dina for an estimated $1.1 Million which will enable Dina to save the house and have much-needed cash. Although TIWA can’t independently verify the claims, Lindsay is said to have earned an estimated $4 Million as of this writing in 2013.

Lindsay, who had her fair chair of financial troubles, was paid $2 Million by Oprah to do a docu-series for Lady O’s OWN channel. Lohan will probably be using what is left from that $2 Million paycheck to buy the house.

Harry Styles rumored to be suffering from Eating disorder & Asthma


Ifrane – One Direction’s hunk Harry Styles is known for his soft voice, flamboyant style & tattoos, dating older women (Taylor Swift included) and now, TIWA can report that Styles may be suffering from Asthma.

Sources tell TIWA that Styles not only suffers from a severe eating disorder, but the One D star is also fighting Asthma. TIWA could not independently verify the claims, ybut the source continue that Styles has been trying to hide his anorexia-like symptoms and Asthma attacks from fans since he was skyrocketed to fame by the X Factor.


The Curse Of Chucky: First Fan Review – 2013


Ifrane – So its been months and months of waiting to see the 6th chapter of a story that changed my perception of Horror movies, The Curse Of Chucky.

The first time I saw Chucky was in “Child’s Play 1” and since then, my heart fell in love with Chucky. I never though, even at young age, that chucky was scary. Actually, I though that the character although being a cold-blood killer was funny and laughs-making factor in the movie. In the 6th installment, Chucky is back better than ever and rave reviews are coming, and coming fast. But I thought, a peer-review from me, a young 21-year old college student, would be way better and more closer to the youths than a review by a saggy, sad old 60-year old critic.

Here is my review guys, and its way not as professional as those of famed critics but it showcases what I think about the movie. IT IS A MUST-WATCH! It could even be one of the best horror movies of 2013 and in my eyes, it is the personification of a solid comeback by Chucky. The movie is scary, thrilling and blood-rushing. Although gore and blood-full, it still has a story, a story with a human factor and the viewer is kept waiting to see what will happen next! Chucky is as professional as always (that was supposed to be a joke) and the plot is, or could probably be, one of the most eye-catching plots in the whole series of Chucky. That is without forgeting to mention how professional (seriously this time) the cast is, although I had a hard time recognizing the actors (actually I googled most of them) there should be no doubt that their performance was that of A-listers.

So go ahead, what are you waiting for! The Curse of Chucky is out now on “Video On Demand VOD) and will be available next month on DVD/Blu-Ray and I URGE URGE URGE you all to watch it! 😀

Wafi Abdouss: Becoming The “IT” Guy

Ifrane- When I first came to Al Akhawayn University, I thought that I’m going to study in a Haravrd-like, Beverlyhills-looking university where everything is possible and where vice overshadows righteousness.

So I came in with a really negative view, I mean really negative, and my dream at that time (4 semesters ago) was to become famous. I dunno why, but I just wanted to be known, loved and followed. You can say its a kid’s dream, a superstars syndrome or an odd version of OCD. Becoming the point of attention has been one of my biggest defects, and as of this writing, I still suffer from it because as you might notice, I’m trying yet again to grab the attention of the reader with a sort-of catchy tittle (I guess) and a heart-felt (not really) article or post. So, back to my little story, I decided to start my own reality show in my first semester and you might say, wow, what a nice idea! WRONG! it was the worst, although I had lots of fun recording it and editing it alongside my two best friends, it gained me nothing but sarcasm, laughs and odd-looks. Maybe I was mistaken, or maybe its just not the right place and the right time. No one can deny that my show (if you can call it a show) was a joke as there was no story, no plot, no good or even decent acting HOWEVER, it gained me a certain percentage of fame. People started to recognize me (In a negative way).

By summer 2012, I became a love-to-hate guy, people just wanted to hate me for no obvious reason. Presuming I was this silly, stupid, Not funny, annoying guy which I WASN’T! The big blast came in August 2012 when I group called Gossip Boy (Yes it is similar to GG in concept) was created, people jumped to thinking I was behind it and it soon went VIRAL among the whole university community. And like that, I became one of the most recognizable faces, one of the really most despised faces. I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it at first, especially when girls used to come up to me and ask me not to write about them but when real problems started poring in like heavy rains, friends ignoring me and even unfriending me I started to feal all alone, sad, heartbroken and mad. You know that feeling when someone accuses you of something and no matter what you say or do no one believes you had nothing to do with it? I felt it each day.

The bright side was that I came to know who my real friends are, and who my fake friends are. Gossip Boy made me infamous, but you know what they say, bad publicity is publicity and publicity is a good thing….wanna know how I changed it all? See you in part 2.

P.S. I’m the guy dancing in the video, which also brough me A LOT OF ATTENTION! I had to delete my video but someone copied it before I took it down, guess they though it was funny, I think it was! 😉

Rookie Blue: I want to be a police officer again


Ifrane – Its becoming obvious to me, with each passing day, that Rookie Blue revived the Canadian series world. Well-written, energized, great cliff-hangers and amazing actors.

I’ve never imagined myself as one of those addicted series fanatics, but here I am. Being an avid-series follower means knowing, with time, what to watch and what to skip from the very first episode and I can’t say the same thing about Rookie blue, because from the first time I watched that pilot, I was hooked and couldn’t let it go. The series drives the audience through a journey of a child wanting to become a superhero. Now, aged 21, I want to be a cop again, off course I can’t because cops in Morocco are not paid well, have really bad costumes and worse reputation. But lets avoid sparking any controversies or issues with our police department 🙂

The important thing this article is trying to tell you, is go and watch this series now on ABC or watch it via a website such as Watch Series. I hope you do 😉

Syria: Assad’s Army promised military Intervention from Russia


Ifrane – “This Is Wafi Abdouss Blog” Returns after nearly one month of activity absence. We comeback with an explosive but short article about Syria, because as many might know, the US is preparing to attack yet another Arab country.

Accusing Assad of using chemical weapons, The US and its allies called for military actions against Assad but the pace of “military intervention” soon faded as US allies including its key ally the UK announced they will not take part in any attack against Syria. The US however, is sticking to its position and remains deadlocked to strike Syria. On the other hand, we can exclusively report that sources from within the Syrian government have confirmed that Russia promised to provide strong military support in order to keep rebels from taking advantage of the supposed strike. The source adds that Russia is committed to protect its interests in the Mediterranean sea.

More is coming, more news is being prepared from different categories to make you an addict of this blog 🙂

Fighting off Intrusive Thoughts: Part 1


Saidia – Today I debut my first article about something I’ve been suffering from for the past 2 months… Intrusive Thoughts and a low-level Anxiety Disorder.

Since June 23rd ‘I’ve been plagued with continuous and disturbing thoughts, really disturbing and sickening thoughts, thoughts I can’t tell you at this moment but I urge you to keep your imaginations  as wide as the moon. It all started when I was told that I speak during my sleep and just like everyone else, at first I ignored it, but one night, in late June, the subject found its way back to the peak of my mind from the depths of the darkness laying deep down in my mind. I started telling myself while watching yet another disturbing TV series that I might say something similar to all the bad things said in the series by its characters, or do something they’re doing, and then my mind just went into a storm of questions….endless questions about all sorts of wrong things I can say or do, I asked all the questions, all the wrong questions and all the bad thoughts came into the front and center of my head.

At the end, I found myself with one question: How could I, an open-minded, Muslim, loving, straightforward, HUMAN think of such things? how could I? and then questions took another turn … Am I going to do some of these imaginations? Am I going to act upon these delusions? Am I sick? Whats wrong with me? When I went to sleep, the fear of saying something while sleeping kept me awake, I just couldn’t close my eyes, I was too afraid to dwindle and give in to my tiredness and sleepy eyes. The anxiety ate me like a tiger viciously and vulgarly eating his pray, the pray dies fast but the tiger eats slowly and enjoys his pray’s meet. The same thing was happening to me, anxiety came to me fast and started eating me slowly, seeping through my soul and my heart, taring down everything beautiful about my imagination. Soon, I was alone with my dark side, my raw evil dark side and it got to the point where I though I wasn’t my self anymore or I was talking to someone else inside of me. Afraid of losing my mind, I got out of bed and went to the balcony. The early morning breeze mixed with my wanted desire of sleeping mixed together creating a highway for me leading to a forced, yet needed sleep. And so, I had no choice but to give in, I had no choice but to sleep and so I did and what happened next was shocking even to the devil himself.

This is the first time I open up about my Intrusive Thought Disorder, and after going through it for 2 months, after long nights of anxiety and hour-long searches on the internet to explore it…I decided it was time to tell my story with Intrusive Thought Disorder, but more importantly how to Fight off this vicious cycle of events.

May Ezzedine Shines in Ramadan 2013


Saidia – For the past few years, the Egyptian actress/singer has been panned for participating in one of the worst movies of all times by critics and 4 of her movies were listed in Al Arabiya’s black list.

However, luck maybe changing for the Arab world’s Lindsay Lohan as the actress showed unprecedented acting performances and reincarnation of a character so evil, so malicious and viper-like mentality. Watching her 2013 Ramadan series “Al Shak” was more than amazing, it was more than entertainment it was,, it was believing that the person playing that role isn’t May. she perfected the character of money-loaded Wassila so perfectly that its nearly impossible to recognize sweet little May Ezzedine.

We guess now that her name being on the black list isn’t an issue for the young actress, because now she should always be proud to have starred in “Al Shak”, the most watched and liked (at least on Facebook) during Ramadan of 2013.
