The Most Powerful Historical Gossip



We all like to see glimpses into forgotten periods of history, and to imagine for ourselves what it may have been like during certain golden eras of time. Thanks to the magic of photography, we still have images and snapshots of some of the most ionic moments of the past—and through history lessons and memories, there is always so much for us to learn.

But once in a while you see a photo from the past that can truly shock and surprise you—as it just doesn’t make sense in today’s world. Let’s take a look at some of the most amazing photos from the past that you would never see today.

Army Girls, 1932

These military maidens may look all glammed up for a day of fun and frolics by the sea, but they are actually taking part in a pretty worthwhile cause. This photo was taken in 1932 at the Army Relief Fete. This was a special event to raise money for the military and strengthen the U.S. troops.

These girls can be seen as they ready themselves to participate at the event, which was held at the Army, Navy and Marine Corps Country Club in D.C.

The Monkey Trial, 1923

At first glance, this may just look like a silly joke pic where someone has put some headphones on a monkey and got them to sit still. But if you know your history, you will know that 1923 saw an incredibly significant movement and trial regarding both monkeys and humans—or rather, the legality of teaching the theory of evolution rather than creationism in schools.

The famous Scopes “Monkey” Trial saw a teacher taken to court for teaching evolution to his students, and this amazing snap shows a monkey called Jock listening in to the verdict over the radio.

Disposing of Liquor, 1921

When we think of the 1920s, we usually think of flapper girls and fabulous parties, all the glitz and glamor of the roaring twenties. But in reality, a lot of the party scene that took place in this iconic decade was actually secret and behind closed doors—because of the prohibition laws that were in effect throughout the country.

Here we can see New York City Deputy Police Commissioner John A. Leach, who has just conducted a raid in New York City. And you can see that he has found a big barrel of liquor—and has ordered to be poured right in to the sewers. An astonishing sight!

Lake Placid, 1923

Is there anything more classy and glamorous than this picture! Here we can see three fabulous young women taking in a spot of tea atop a beautiful ski table, placed beautifully on top of an idyllic frozen lake.

These days, we’d be slipping about all over the place, before heading off to a cheap and cheerful café round the corner. Just as much fun, but not with the same kind of panache and effortless style that these ladies are so easily pulling off. What a time to be alive.

Albert Einstein, 1939

It’s strange to see any picture of Albert Einstein looking like a regular person, doing regular things. His eccentric looks and demeanor, coupled with his truly legendary abilities and mathematical legacies, make him feel truly like the stuff of mythology rather than a regular guy, let alone a husband and father.

But here he is in 1939, looking like just a regular dad, albeit with a wacky hairdo, as his daughter sits on his lap while they both attend the opening of the Jewish Pavilion in Queens, New York.

Big Bird, 1977

Though the huge markers of history may come and go, and the passage of time is one thing none of us can hope to stop or even slow down, there are some things we can count on to maintain throughout the ages. And one of those things is none other than cultural institution and everlasting television icon—none other than Sesame Street’s Big Bird.

Here he is—or rather, she, as inside the costume is in fact a woman named Carroll Spinney—alongside host Bob McGrath, as they film a special location episode on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai.

Salma Hayek takes a dip in blue bikini while yachting in Mexico with family




Salma Hayek soaked up sun in a striking blue-and-white bikini.

Viva Mexico.

Salma Hayek enjoyed a splash in the sea while vacationing in Los Cabos, Mexico, with billionaire husband François-Henri Pinault and some of their children.

The 56-year-old actress showcased her curves in a striking blue-and-white printed bikini with gold accents and accessorized the look with a duo of necklaces, going makeup-free and letting her hair down for the fun-filled family outing.

Hayek has sent pulses racing all summer with her sexy snaps, whether she’s celebrating National Bikini Day, squeezing in a workout or boating around the world.

As for how she stays looking ageless, the star has said she forgoes Botox injections in favor of meditation and frequency machines to maintain her youthful appearance.

She looked stunning while in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Daughter Valentina joined Hayek and her husband, François-Henri Pinault, with the whole family matching in blue.

The couple had a laugh while rinsing off.

Hayek later slipped a pretty blue cover-up over her swimwear.

Hayek was seen enjoying her day out on a yacht, enjoying a dip and spending time with Pinault, whom she married in 2009.

The fashion mogul matched his wife in blue swim trunks, and Hayek later layered on a crochet-trimmed cover-up in the same shade.

The couple share daughter Valentina Pinault, 16, and the French businessman has three children from previous relationships: daughter Mathilde and son François, both from his marriage to Dorothée Lepère, and son Augustin, whom he shares with with model Linda Evangelista.

It’s been a bikini-filled summer for the movie star.

Instead of Botox, Hayek relies on meditation and frequency machines to stay young.

She also loves working out in her pool.

Evangelista recently joined her fellow OG supermodels Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell on the cover of Vogue’s September issue and shared a behind-the-scenes peek at her sweet relationship with Hayek.

“I was sick at Thanksgiving. And Salma got on the plane with her daughter, came here, and made Thanksgiving dinner,” Evangelista said. “She made a feast — a beautiful, beautiful meal. I had told her that I wasn’t going to have Thanksgiving; I wasn’t feeling well. And she said, ‘Oh yes you are: I am coming.’ And poof, she was here.”

From the kitchen to Los Cabos, it seems Hayek can do it all.

Salma Hayek, 57, reveals the secret to her fit bikini body — and it’s not exercise




Salma Hayek is spilling the secrets behind her fit physique.

The actress, 57, credited practicing meditation over intense exercise as the key to staying youthful in a new interview.

“I really believe it is. People say it’s exercising. I think it’s meditation,” she told “Entertainment Tonight.“

“You have to find your way. For me, exercising is hard,” she admitted. “It’s really, really difficult to have the discipline to do it. But meditation is a walk in the park, because it’s my own form of it.”

Hayek added that she practices the routine “every day” and takes the time to “sit in a moment with yourself.”

The “Frida” star previously gushed about the mindfulness technique on a July episode of Kelly Ripa’s SiriusXM podcast, “Let’s Talk Off Camera.”

Salma Hayek revealed that the secret to her bikini body is meditation — not exercise.

“People say it’s exercising. I think it’s meditation,” Hayek said of maintaining her youthful appearance.

“When I don’t [meditate] for some time, guess what? Not only [does] the face starts to drop and everything starts to drop, [but also] my herniated disc, the problem in my neck, the problem in my hip, my ankles [comes back]. I start breaking down,” she said at the time.

Hayek explained that she has even gotten to the point of her meditation routine where she feels energy “dancing” through her body.

“Sometimes when I’m doing it, people tell me when I come out of the room, ‘Oh my God, you look 20 years old,’” she raved.

The “Frida” star admitted it’s “difficult” for her to consistently exercise.

Hayek recently showed off her meditation success in a bikini pic for her 57th birthday.

The Mexican-American beauty also divulged that she’s never gotten Botox and instead relies on “frequency machines” in addition to her meditation practices.

“The people that do the machines say that the results I get, they don’t get with other people,” she spilled.

Hayek has not been shy in showing off the results of her health and wellness routines and even recently shared a sultry snap in a red bikini for her 57th birthday.

‘Hot girl’ Billie Eilish reveals chest tattoo in rare bikini photo




Billie Eilish’s fans are happier than ever after seeing this sexy snap.

The “Bad Guy” songstress popped up in an Instagram post shared by pal Annabel Zimmer (daughter of famed composer Hans Zimmer) Saturday, soaking up the sun in a boldly printed Miaou bikini top and Versace shades.

Billie Eilish posed for a rare bikini photo on Instagram over the weekend — and showed off her chest tattoo for the very first time.

The rare swimsuit pic also marks the first time Eilish, 21, has shown off her chest tattoo of her surname, which she once swore fans wouldn’t “ever see.”

In 2021, Rolling Stone reported Eilish had her last name inked “in an ornate, gothic font” the day after the 2020 Grammys, where she scooped up five awards including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist.

“I have one here that says ‘Eilish.’ Yes, I love myself,” Eilish explained of the design during her annual Vanity Fair “Same Interview” video later that same year.

The singer, 21, was photographed sunbathing in a Miaou swimsuit top.

While Eilish once lived in baggy looks, she’s since begun embracing more body-conscious styles.

She has several other tattoos, including a few “guardian angel fairies” on her left wrist and hand — from “a little fairy book called ‘Fairyopolis,’” as Eilish told Vanity Fair — and a large dragon winding up her right thigh and hip, which she referred to as a “big boy” in the same video interview.

Although the “Ocean Eyes” hitmaker’s personal style has continued to evolve from baggy clothes to more feminine looks in recent years, she appeared shy about the revealing picture, as she reacted to the post with a see-no-evil monkey emoji.

However, her admirers didn’t hold back while dropping a series of thirsty remarks.

“You’re beautiful, I love you,” one person replied to Eilish’s comment, while another wrote, “my heart stopped cause of you.”

Other comments included, “life as a REAL REAL REALLLYYYY hot girl,” “Missgurl we’re not breathing” and “you look very sexy 🥵.”

Eilish’s bikini bombshell comes weeks after she fired back at the “f—king bozos” who have called her a “sellout” for embracing her femininity.

“I spent the first 5 years of my career getting absolutely OBLITERATED by you fools for being boy-ish and dressing how I did & constantly being told I’d be hotter if I acted like a woman,” she shared via her Instagram Stories in May.

“And now when I feel comfortable enough to wear anything remotely feminine or fitting, I CHANGED and am a sellout.. and ‘what happened to her’ oMg iT’s nOt thE sAmE biLlie she’s just like the rest blah blah.”

She then told followers, “FUN FACT! Did you know that women are multifaceted!!!!!??? Shocking right?? Believe it or not, women can be interested in multiple things.”

The Oscar-winning musician has spoken candidly about her struggles to love and accept her body in the past.

“Going through my teenage years of hating myself and all that stupid s—t, a lot of it came from my anger toward my body, and how mad I was at how much pain it’s caused me, and how much I’ve lost because of things that happened to it,” Eilish told Vogue in January, referencing a hip injury that kept her from pursuing a dance career.

“I felt like my body was gaslighting me for years,” she added. “I had to go through a process of being like, my body is actually me. And it’s not out to get me.”
