What does one psychic,Nikki, predict about 2011? She says that there may be loom and gloom are bundled up for 2011. She predicted the Chile disaster for 2010, and even predicted trouble for Tiger Woods 2010. So what about in 2011?
PREDICTION: George Clooney will get married.
The once-married dreamboat has claimed he’ll never walk down the aisle again. “But this is the year,” Nikki says. Who’s the lucky gal? “The chances of him marrying [current girlfriend, Italian model Elisabetta Canalis] are about 50/50.”
PREDICTION: The Playboy Mansion will burn down.
Not the mansion! “This will probably be an accident,” Nikki says. The fire could start at a party, she says: “they get pretty crazy!”
PREDICTION: A gold rush will occur in Hawaii.
Think the Klondike was crazy? “Gold mining companies will go big on this one,” Nikki says. People will “absolutely move” there in an effort to cash in on the craze.
PREDICTION: Michelle Obama will have another baby.
Nikki predicts that the President’s daughters Malia and Sasha will get a brand-new sibling—or two! It could be a boy or a girl, but is more likely a set of twins, she says.
PREDICTION: Sarah Palin will get divorced.
Rumours that the former veep nominee and her hubby of many years could be headed for splitsville have been swirling for a while. “This could get a little messy,” Nikki says.
PREDICTION: A giant spider nest and spiders will be found in South America.
Chalk it up to global warming. “There’s always new species being found down there!” she says.
PREDICTION: The first brain transplant will take place.
Nikki previously predicted the first face transplant. 2011 is all about the medical breakthroughs, she says, and the United States or Britain might be the first to perform a brain transplant. “It’s the next step,” she says.
PREDICTION: A huge breakthrough in the cure for Alzheimer’s and dementia.
One of the best breakthroughs for the year will be progress in the fight against these deadly diseases. “This will come from stem cell research,” according to Nikki.
PREDICTION: A horseshoe-shaped UFO will be spotted over Roswell, New Mexico.
“It’s the uncommon shape of the horseshoe that’s interesting here,” Nikki says. “There will be a lot more sightings this year. I feel that there are other planets with life in the universe—something very Avatar!” There will be more UFO sightings, and even possibly news on the alien life front.
PREDICTION: There will be a big scandal involving a Washington politician—and cheating will be involved! “
So who’s the dirty dog? “It could be a senator, or even one of Obama’s people,” according to Nikki.
PREDICTION: Longtime Hollywood power-couple Warren Beatty and Annette Bening will split up.
The twosome have been together for almost two decades, but “they’ve just outgrown each other,” according to Nikki. “It probably has something to do with their children, or perhaps a difference of opinion. It’s a combination of a lot of things.”
PREDICTION: A Hollywood starlet will give birth to a dwarf.
“Sometimes it’s the wildest predictions!” Nikki says with a laugh (she predicted that bird attack for Fabio on a roller coaster!). “I see the cover of People for this one,” she says.
PREDICTION: Lady Gaga will try out acting.
The wonderfully weird chanteuse will try her hand at both dramatic and comedic roles, including a possible turn on Broadway. Nikki says, “I see her taking a role similar to Burlesque,” the surprise smash musical starring Christina Aguilera.
