Iron Maiden singer made
honorary Sarajevo citizen
Bosnia's capital city made heavy metal band Iron Maiden's lead singer, Bruce Dickinson, an honorary citizen Saturday for a concert he performed while Sarajevo was under siege during the 1992-95 war.
Mayor Abdulah Skaka presented the award at a ceremony in Sarajevo City Hall, which was badly damaged during the long Bosnian Serb siege of the city and since restored.
"The arrival of Mr. Dickinson in Sarajevo in 1994 was one of those moments that made us in Sarajevo realize that we will survive, that the city of Sarajevo will survive, that Bosnia-Herzegovina will survive," said Skaka.
Saturday was Sarajevo Day, which marks the city's 1945 liberation during World War II and the start in 1992 of the Bosnian Serb siege that killed more than 11,000 people.
Dickinson, who signed autographs, said that "it's a great honor to be given the honorary citizenship of Sarajevo."
"In a world where things only last for about five seconds on social media ... people are still remembering it. That's really quite something," he told The Associated Press. "This is a brilliant day, a lovely day and it's great to be back."
Kardashian West plans
CBD-themed baby shower
Kim Kardashian West is "high key freaking out" about the arrival of her fourth child and wants nothing more than to Zen out at her baby shower.
Hence, her planned CBD-themed bash, the reality star told E! News.
There will be massages and a tea ceremony with crystals, she said while promoting her new line of sunglasses. The baby, the second boy for Kardashian West and husband Kanye West, is due soon by surrogacy.
And the party theme? CBD is short for cannabidiol, the chemical compound in the cannabis plant. It's known for promoting relaxation and has been embraced in health and beauty products.
