    É certo que Elounor já não existe. Depois das fotografias publicadas do cantor a beijar outra rapariga numa festa da piscina, oficializaram-se os rumores. CONTUDO, ainda não terminaram os boatos sobre o que levou ao fim a da relação. Agendas ocupadas? Tour? Discussões? Qual deles o verdadeiro motivo?

    Depois de um representante do El Tommo ter confirmado o fim da relação há cerca de 3 semanas, agora diz-se que o casal pôs um ponto final na sua história há CINCO semanas por andarem “a discutir imenso” durante a On The Road Again tour.

    Yup – os novos rumores dizem que quando Eleanor voou até Sidney não foi propriamente para ver o seu amorzinho a saltar pelos palcos, mas sim para salvar a relação amorosa do casal. Aparentemente a relação já estava tremida há algum tempo e eles não conseguiam resolver as suas diferenças.

    Em conversa com a revista Heat uma fonte (que diz ser amigo/a de Eleanor) revelou:

Eles já estavam com problemas há algum tempo. A vida em tour sobe-lhe à cabeça. Ele consegue ser muito pouco tolerante e prestes a explodir. Eles têm discutido imenso.

Oprah shares the cover with her young 21-yr-old self which she writes a letter to.

Dear beautiful brown-skinned girl,

I look into your eyes and see the light and hope of myself.

In this photo you are just about to turn 20, posing outside the television station where you were recently hired as a reporter. You’re proud of yourself for getting the job, but uncertain you’ll be able to manage all your college classes before 1 and arrive at the station by 1:30 for a full day’s work. Even so, your biggest concern is how to manage your love life with Bubba. Yes, you are dating someone named Bubba.

On this day you’ve brought him to the station to see where you work, hoping he’ll be proud, too. He seems less than impressed. The truth is, he’s intimidated. You don’t know this, though, because you can see yourself only through his eyes. A lesson you will have to learn again and again: to see yourself with your own eyes, to love yourself from your own heart.

You’ve spent too many days and years trying to please others and be what they wanted you to be. You will have to learn that the wounds of your past—rape, molestation, whippings for “stepping out of place,” and not being allowed to show anger or cry afterward—damaged your self-esteem. Yet through it all, you’ve held on to a belief in God and God’s belief in you.

That will be your single greatest gift: knowing there is a power greater than yourself and trusting that Force to guide you.

The trajectory of your life changed the day you answered the call from Chris Clark, the news director at WLAC-TV. Your response was ignited by the words of your then-favorite Bible verse, Philippians 3:14. “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Knowing there is a “high calling” is what will sustain and fulfill you.

From where I sit now, viewing your journey, there are few regrets. Only months before this picture was taken, you wrote a poem about a “woman becoming.” Even then you understood that success was a process and that moving with the flow of life and not against it would be your greatest achievement.

Love you deeply,

Whatever you fear most has no power - it is your fear that has the power. The thing itself cannot touch you. But if you allow your fear to seep into your mind and overtake your thoughts, it will rob you of your life.
