Random Celebrity News

Susana Jamaladinova
For some values of "random", "celebrity" and "news". At CBS News, Moscow puts a popular Ukrainian singer on wanted list, accusing her of spreading false information about Russian military

Russia has placed a Ukrainian singer who won the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest on its wanted list, state news agencies reported Monday. The reports said an Interior Ministry database listed singer Susana Jamaladinova as being sought for violating a criminal law.

The independent news site Mediazona, which covers opposition and human rights issues, said Jamaladinova was charged under a law adopted last year that bans spreading so-called fake information about the Russian military and the ongoing fighting in Ukraine.

Jamaladinova, who performs under the stage name Jamala, is of Crimean Tatar descent. Jamala, who performed at the Kennedy Center Honors in December, won the 2016 Eurovision contest with the song "1944," a title that refers to the year the Soviet Union deported Crimean Tatars en masse.

From NYPo, Natalie Portman says children should not be working in Hollywood — after she was ‘sexualized’ in first movie at age 12

Natalie Portman began her long and illustrious film career when she was just 12-years-old — starring in Luc Besson’s “Léon: The Professional.” However, the Oscar-winner, now 42, doesn’t believe that children should be working in Hollywood. “I would not encourage young people to go into this. I don’t mean ever; I mean as children,” Portman told Variety recently.

Portman doesn’t regret starting her own acting career in her pre-teen years because her parents were able to watch over her while she was on set. “I feel it was almost an accident of luck that I was not harmed, also combined with very overprotective, wonderful parents,” the “Thor” actress explained. “You don’t like it when you’re a kid, and you’re grateful for it when you’re an adult,” she added.” I’ve heard too many bad stories to think that any children should be part of it.” “Ultimately, I don’t believe that kids should work,” Portman proclaimed. “I think kids should play and go to school.”

Emily Austin
Great! More work for the "little people"! Also at NYPo, Miss Universe judge hit with death threats after debate against Palestinian activist: ‘You will be killed’

A Miss Universe judge says she received numerous death threats after she sparred with a Palestinian activist on air over the war in Gaza. Emily Austin, who is a Jewish journalist and engages in activism related to Israel, joined “Piers Morgan Uncensored” on October 24 to discuss the ongoing conflict.

The segment quickly devolved when Austin confronted Nerdeen Kiswani, an anti-Israel activist, who cast doubt on intel that claimed an Islamic Jihad’s failed rocket launch was responsible for the al-Ahli Baptist Hospital blast in Gaza City. Austin also asked Kiswani if she condemned 9/11, a topic that angered the Palestinian activist who called the line of questioning “ridiculous.”
Nerdeen Kiswani 
During the back and forth, Kiswani repeatedly turned to Piers Morgan and asked why he was not dealing out the questions instead. Kiswani also called Austin a “genocide denier,” a moniker that she denied and labeled as “child’s play.

Austin suggested that Kiswani had instigated online harassment against her by posting her picture with a red triangle over her head. “I really tried to keep it fact-based, unemotional, like this is what this is. She was yelling. She was talking over me, threatening me on Instagram with, like, a red arrow over my head, telling people how funny it was to put a bounty on my head. That’s not so funny,” Austin told Fox News Digital. According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Kiswani is the leader of Within Our Lifetime-United for Palestine (WOL), a radical New York-based group that routinely expresses support for violence against Israel.
