New Justin Bieber Album Criticised for Being 'Too Religious'

Justin Bieber’s new album, “Purpose,” has reportedly been rejected in several Middle Eastern countries for being too religious and provocative. CBN News reports the album cover features the pop star shirtless, with a cross tattoo visible on his chest. 
According to TMZ, the album was rejected in Middle Eastern countries and Indonesia, where Islam is the predominant religion. 
Bieber's team is now reportedly creating a new cover to distribute the album in the Middle East. 
Bieber recently spoke out about his Christian faith in a Complex Magazine interview. He said that he wanted to live like Jesus and was tired of hiding his faith. 
The singer said Jesus “created a pretty awesome template of how to love people and how to be gracious and kind. If you believe it, He (died) for our sins.”
"We could take out all of our insecurities, we could take away all of the hurt, all the pain, all the fear, all the trauma. We have the greatest healer of all and His name if Jesus Christ. And He really heals."

While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…

Character

Think of character as having the benefits of a house’s foundation during a huge storm. If the foundation is strong enough, it will stand firm when the waters come. But when it is weak, the house will come down crumbling even at the slightest wind. That’s why it’s important that we develop a good character. It is often said that hard work will take you to the top but character will keep you there.  
 "Many succeed momentarily by what they know  Some succeed temporarily by what they do Few succeed permanently by who they are”
What then is character?  The Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary defines it as “the particular combination of qualities in a person that makes them different form others”. In the simplest terms, character is “who you are”, nothing more nothing less. It is often widely described as who you are when no one else is watching. Your character is what defines you. In other words, your true value can be more than what your degrees, reputation and even your pay check …
