HOW WILL TAYLOR SWIFT REACT

VICTIM OF PORNOGRAPHIC DEEPFAKES

ON SOCIAL NETWORKS ?

Last week, singer Taylor Swift was the victim of pornographic deepfakes, ultra-realistic photo and video montages generated by AI and distributed on social networks. This content allegedly comes from a Telegram group specializing in the creation of sexual montages involving women.

One of the images featuring the famous American artist was viewed nearly 50 million times on X, where it remained accessible for almost 24 hours before being removed, sparking outrage among the artist's millions of fans , voted the most listened to in the world in 2023.

This incident prompted “swifties” to mobilize to counter the proliferation of these deepfakes. Fans massively posted the message "PROTECT TAYLOR SWIFT" in capital letters, accompanied by excerpts from the artist's concerts to overwhelm the explicit content. More than 200,000 messages of support were recorded over the weekend, marking a general protest movement against pornographic deepfakes involving women.

Faced with the controversy, X, Elon Musk's network, ended up removing the controversial images, closing the accounts involved in their distribution and blocking all searches linked to the singer's name. “A temporary measure, taken with extreme caution, because we prioritize safety,” according to the platform, which did not specify how long it would last.

Women: the first victims of deepfakes

This decision by the social network comes a few hours after an intervention by the White House on the subject. “We are alarmed by reports of the circulation of these false images,” Karine Jean-Pierre, spokesperson for the American executive branch, told the press.

The White House wants to push Congress to pass federal law against AI-generated porn deepfakes.

For the moment, around ten American states have already taken measures in this direction but no federal law criminalizes the dissemination of deepfakes. The platforms were also ordered to act more quickly to fight against the dissemination of these images.

“A zero tolerance policy”

It could mark awareness against a scourge which targets almost exclusively women.

The widespread use of technology to generate sexual videos without the consent of women, whether famous or anonymous, has become a major issue. According to a survey conducted by cybersecurity company Home Security Heroes, pornographic deepfakes accounted for 98% of global production in this category last year.

Wired magazine reports that as many as 113,000 such videos have been uploaded to porn platforms in the past year. With advances in artificial intelligence, specialized forums now disseminate advice allowing anyone to create content undressing a person of their choice in a few clicks, from a simple photo.

Global icon Taylor Swift, named Time magazine's 2023 Person of the Year, known for influencing the copyright policies of companies such as Apple and exposing Live Nation's questionable copyright practices. he concert industry, could play a decisive role in the fight against Deepfake Porn.

Let's wait for his next speech on this hot topic.

KING CHARLES III WITH CANCER

King Charles III, aged 75, is suffering from a “form of cancer”, Buckingham Palace announced Monday February 5 in a press release. The palace did not specify what cancer it was, only saying it was not prostate cancer. The sovereign was hospitalized for three days in a private London clinic for prostate surgery, then was released on January 29.

“During the king's recent hospital procedure for benign enlargement of the prostate, a separate problem was noted” and “subsequent tests identified a form of cancer,” the palace explained in its statement. According to Buckingham Palace, the king "remains completely positive about his treatment and hopes to return to full public duties as soon as possible."

The king has “chosen to share his diagnosis to avoid speculation and in the hope that it can help the public understand all those around the world affected by cancer”, also specifies Buckingham Palace.

The King of England says he has informed his loved ones, including his youngest son, Harry, who will return to England for a few days to visit his father. In the wake of the press release announcing the cancer of Charles III, the British Prime Minister wished, on his account X, a “speedy and complete recovery” to the sovereign.

King Charles, aged 75, began treatment today and will suspend his public appearances, the Palace said.

During this period, he will continue to fulfill his duties as head of state and receive the famous “red box” containing all official documents. His weekly audiences with the Prime Minister are also maintained. According to Buckingham, it is still too early to know when he will fully resume his public engagements.

His eldest son, the Prince of Wales, William, 41, is expected to replace the king for many of his engagements. Queen Camilla and Princess Anne, aged 76 and 73 respectively, will continue their commitments. However, they will not be able to be supported immediately by Kate, the Princess of Wales having just undergone a serious abdominal operation at the end of January. Buckingham Palace has no plans for her to appear in public in the coming weeks – not until Easter.

A speedy recovery to King Charles III.

THE MYSTERY AROUND HOSPITALIZATION

OF THE PRINCESS OF WALES

For ten days, the question has persisted among the English. Kensington Palace surprised everyone on Wednesday January 17 by announcing the hospitalization of Kate Middleton. According to the official statement, the Princess of Wales was admitted to the London Clinic the day before for “planned abdominal surgery”.

Despite this announcement, the details provided by officials remain rather limited. We only know that “the operation was successful”, and the press release specifies that the wife of Prince William will remain in the hospital “for ten to fourteen days”, with a total absence of royal commitments until at Easter, March 31.

The question on people's minds concerns the mystery surrounding the Princess of Wales. The difference in communication between the hospitalization of Kate Middleton and that of King Charles III is palpable.

Kate Middleton has made it clear that she does not wish to divulge details of her operation, despite the length of her hospital stay being significant, and that she will be refraining from official duties until Easter. The royal family has the right to a certain amount of privacy in medical matters, and Catherine chose to exercise this right.

However, the English are particularly curious, given how invested the princess is in her royal commitments. She is actively involved in numerous charitable works, mainly focused on early childhood. At the same time, she lives a happy marriage with Prince William and enjoys her family life.

It is this combination of elements that fuels the public's curiosity about them.

ALAIN DELON CASE

WHO IS ANOUCHKA’S HUSBAND ?


In the epic saga that pits Anouchka, the formidable sister-in-law, against her brothers-in-law, Julien Dereims finds himself in a battle from which he would prefer to be far away.

While the siblings engage in a media war worthy of Game of Thrones, the estranged members of the Delon clan adopt a policy of silence. Anthony's daughters, Liv and Loup, as well as their mother Sophie Clerico, nevertheless continue their regular visits to Alain Delon in his refuge in Douchy (in the Loiret). For his part, Julien Dereims, Anouchka's husband, is also a master of abstention, avoiding any comment on the burlesque show pitting his wife against his brothers-in-law.

Alain-Fabien Delon spoke about his brother-in-law and his behavior in this family comedy. Discussing Anouchka's whirlwind visits to Douchy, the youngest of the Delons revealed: “She has an entire house on the property, where her husband has never spent a night since the start of this circus. She just makes appearances. » Alain-Fabien added with a dramatic sigh: “Monday morning, she arrived, hung around for five minutes, while her husband waited in the car. The day before yesterday, same scenario, and two days before too.

She comes, says "I love you, daddy", then returns to her Swiss castle. » When he speaks of "Swiss castle", he refers to the fact that Anouchka lives in Switzerland with her husband and their 4-year-old little prince, Lino. The 33-year-old actress is apparently trying by all means to bring her father back to Switzerland, a land where he lived for a long time and was treated after his stroke in 2019.

Although he prefers to stay in the background, Julien Dereims still released a little pearl of humor in a well-felt comment to his brother-in-law Anthony on Instagram, on January 5: “And fortunately you removed the quicklime and the shovel from your trunk!!!! Come on… #shameatoi,” he wrote in the caption of a publication repeating Anthony Delon’s accusations against Anouchka. Since then, Julien Dereims has mysteriously closed his Instagram account to the public.

Speaking of love and comedy, Anouchka and Julien are now celebrating over ten years of romance. The two actors met in 2010 on the benches of the Simon course in Paris. The one who grew up in Cannes then made his debut on the stage with pieces like “Panik” (2012) and “Libres sont les fleurs” (2017). He even shared the stage with his legendary father-in-law Alain Delon and his wife in the play “An Ordinary Day” in 2011.

Julien Dereims has also made cinematic appearances in films such as “Au bout du conte” (2012), with Agnès Jaoui and Jean-Pierre Bacri, “3 Days to Kill” (2014), “Toute resemblance” (2018, under the direction of Michel Denisot), or even “Hi, how are you? » in 2021. On television, he made a brief appearance in the series “Versailles” in 2015.

Julien Dereims built his with Anouchka, their son Lino and their faithful corgi, who accompanies them on their adventures in Switzerland, New York, Turkey, Italy...

CONCERN AROUND KATE MIDDLETON PRINCESS OF WALES

Kate Middleton's state of health is causing concern. The Duchess was admitted to the London Clinic, a private clinic in London, for a successful abdominal procedure on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.
According to the Kensington's announcement on Wednesday, January 17, she will remain in the hospital for at least 10 days and will not will resume its activities only after the Easter holidays.

This news caused general concern even if the Palace assured that the intervention had gone well. However, Prince William's wife's prolonged recovery has sparked speculation in the media. To dispel any rumors, the “Guardian” clarified that the Palace categorically denied any link with cancer, without providing further details. The decision was made to only communicate when significant information was available.

Surrounded by her loved ones, the princess is recovering with the support of William, who canceled his commitments to be by her side. His parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, as well as his brother and sister, Pippa Matthews and James Middleton, will assist him in his recovery at the royal couple's home in Windsor.

In a statement released Wednesday, the Palace relayed the princess's words, expressing its eagerness to return to work and apologizing for canceled engagements.

However, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not bother to send a message, either publicly or in a more personal way, according to the English press. Maybe too busy living their own fairy tale elsewhere

SORDID MEDIA UNPACKING

AROUND THE EXPLOSION OF THE DELON CLAN

FACED WITH THE PATRIARCH’S DECLINING HEALTH

Around the tutelary figure of the father, of the star Alain Delon, his three children, Anthony, 59 years old, Anouchka, 34 years old, and Alain-Fabien, 30 years old, argue. Alain Delon's heirs are fighting over custody of the patriarch in declining health. And this went as far as waging a legal and media war around their father. Gone is the united front of the Delon children against Hiromi Rollin, described as the “lady in waiting” of the monument of French cinema.

From July 2023 Alain-Fabien, Anthony and Anouchka Delon discuss the state of health of their father by SMS. It is notably a question of stopping the treatment of the actor, whose health has deteriorated since his stroke in 2019.

“What I think: immediately stop dad's treatment in order to improve his living conditions and what remains of his health,” pleads Anthony Delon in one of these text messages relayed by the news channel. “I think, to this day, he’s tired of fighting. […] If he decides to give up, nothing and no one can do anything about it,” he says, before ending his message with “We’ll talk later. I kiss you ". And Anthony Delon wishes Alain Delon to return to his home in Douchy (Loiret) “with as much comfort and love as possible to accompany him,” he writes.

A “difficult” decision to be “taken by three”

A proposal to which Anouchka Delon opposed and continues to do so, then as today. The actor’s only daughter responds: “We are not specialists. So, stop (the treatment), why not, but not now,” she writes, still according to the same source. She says she wants, like her brothers, to "keep dad in the best conditions for a while longer", but judges that stopping treatment against medical advice is not "reasonable". And she warns “We have to be aware that if anything happens to him, it will be our fault. I kiss you. »

Since these exchanges last summer, and the outbreak of the affair with Hiromi Rollin, the actor's state of health has continued to fracture the siblings. Anthony and Alain-Fabien want their father to be treated in France. Anouchka wants him to be treated in Switzerland. Alain Delon's Swiss doctor would also have alerted one of the actor's lawyers, lawyer Christophe Aleya, of an "imminent danger of death" in the event of stopping the treatment.

And it was Anthony Delon who set the scene on fire on January 4. In the columns of Paris Match, the actor's eldest son announced that he had filed a complaint against Anouchka Delon on the previous November 7. According to him, his half-sister would have concealed the negative results of cognitive tests carried out in Switzerland on their father. In this story with classic outlines but sordid form, emotional blackmail, repressed resentments, and lack of filial love are mixed. Without forgetting, of course, the money. “Anouchka's anxiety, with her lawyer, is that my father will be redefined as a French citizen.

There would be a huge tax, a huge tax,” explained Anthony Delon on CNews.
The origin of this mutual distrust, of these suppressed unsaid words, and of this fierce competition to win the heart of their sick father, remains enigmatic. Anthony and Alain-Fabien feel like the outcasts of the clan, confronted with their half-sister Anouchka who has always benefited from paternal preference. She had been taken under the protective wing of her father from the age of 12, while they together filmed the television film "The Lion", inspired by the work of Joseph Kessel.

And the great media and legal unpacking gets carried away...

The heirs of Alain Delon are definitely not part of The Race of Lords.

LE CONTE DE FEE MODERNE AU DANEMARK

MARIE DONALDSON DEVIENDRA 

LA NOUVELLE REINE CONSORT

Dans moins de 15 jours, Mary Donaldson deviendra la nouvelle reine consort du Danemark.

Et pourtant on ne pensait pas voir Mary Donaldson devenir reine consort du Danemark si tôt. Mais sa belle-mère, la reine Margrethe II, en a décidé autrement. Alors qu’elle avait toujours dit qu’il faudrait qu’elle tombe de son trône pour le quitter la souveraine, aujourd’hui âgée de 83 ans, a finalement choisi, à la surprise générale, d’abdiquer.

Le soir du réveillon, l'ex-reine Margrethe II a en effet annoncé qu'elle était sur le point d'abdiquer. Et très vite, puisqu’elle a prévu de passer la main à son fils aîné le prince héritier Frederik dès le 14 janvier 2024, jour de ses 52 ans de règne. Ce fut, pour les Danois, un «choc total».

Une Australienne de Tasmanie

Sa rencontre fortuite avec le prince héritier Frederik de Danemark en 2000 a propulsé celle qui était alors Mary Donaldson, actuelle princesse héritière Mary de Danemark et future reine, dans l'une des histoires d'amour de conte de fées les plus magiques du XXIe siècle.En se mariant quatre ans plus tard dans une magnifique robe ivoire du créateur danois Uffe Frank, la jeune princesse, et bientôt première reine australienne, s'est imposée comme une véritable star de la royauté.

Quelles étaient les chances pour qu'une Australienne de Tasmanie, travaillant dans la publicité, devienne reine du Danemark? Elles étaient minces mais c'est pourtant ce qui va arriver à Mary Donaldson, le 14 janvier prochain, quand la reine Margrethe II du Danemark abdiquera en faveur de son fils Frederik. Rien ne prédestinait Mary Donaldson, consultante en communication et en marketing née en 1972 sur l'île située au sud de l'Australie à devenir reine du Danemark.

La rencontre de Frederik, prince du Danemark

Ignorant qu'il était le prince du Danemark, Mary fit la rencontre de Frederik, surnommé alors "le prince fêtard", dans un bar à Sydney lors des Jeux olympiques de 2000. Accompagné de son frère Joachim, de son cousin le prince Nikolaos de Grèce et du Danemark, de la princesse Martha de Norvège, et du prince Felipe, futur roi d'Espagne, le prince dévoila sa véritable identité à Mary après une poignée de main initiale. C'est une demi-heure plus tard, qu'un tiers s'approcha d'elle et déclara : 'Savez-vous qui sont ces gens?' expliqua la princesse lors d'une interview en 2005.

Au fur et à mesure que leur romance se développait, devenant sérieuse, Mary Donaldson déménagea au Danemark en 2001, où elle travailla comme consultante en projets chez Microsoft. À cette époque, leur relation devint publique, attirant l'attention de la presse people locale.

Mary redoubla d'efforts pour s'intégrer dans son nouveau pays. Anglophone, elle suivit des cours intensifs pour maîtriser rapidement la langue d'Andersen. "C'est un véritable voyage. Arriver dans un nouveau pays est toujours un peu étrange d'une certaine manière. Mais j'étais aussi profondément amoureuse", confia-t-elle dans un documentaire en 2022.
La reine Margrethe, également conquise, déclara dans une conférence de presse en juillet 2003 l'apprécier grandement. Frederik et Mary se fiancèrent en 2003 et se marièrent le 14 mai 2004.
Pour épouser le prince Frederik, Mary, presbytérienne, dut se convertir au luthéranisme et renoncer à la nationalité australienne et britannique héritée de ses parents.
"Mary a eu le courage de placer son avenir au Danemark. Montrons-nous toujours dignes de sa confiance", déclara la reine Margrethe lors du mariage de Frederik et Mary, vantant la "force intérieure" de sa nouvelle belle-fille et sa "chaleur calme" inspirant la confiance.

S'adaptant rapidement à son rôle de princesse danoise, Mary s'engagea dans diverses causes, de la culture à l'industrie de la mode, mais aussi dans l'aide humanitaire, le soutien à la recherche, et la lutte contre l'homophobie. En 2006, elle fonda sa propre organisation, la Mary Fonden, luttant contre l'isolement social, le harcèlement et les violences domestiques.

Elue femme de l'année en 2008
Très populaire dans le pays, elle fut élue femme de l'année en 2008 par le magazine féminin "Alt for damerne". En 2022, un nouvel édifice du Rigshospitalet, le plus grand hôpital de Copenhague, dédié à l'accueil des enfants malades, fut baptisé en son honneur "hôpital Mary Elizabeth".

En 2019, Mary accéda à un nouveau statut, celui de chef d'État, lui permettant de remplacer à l'occasion la reine Margrethe. Une fonction qui était réservée auparavant uniquement à Frederik, son frère Joachim, et la sœur de la reine, la princesse Benedict.
"J'assume ce rôle avec sérieux et humilité, mais aussi avec intérêt", confia-t-elle dans le documentaire que lui consacrait la télévision danoise en 2022. Désormais, un nouveau rôle l'attend, celui de reine du Danemark.

Mais un vrai conte de fée moderne pour Mary de Danemark ?

Selon le spécialiste des monarchies européennes Phil Dampier, la décision de l'ancienne souveraine de se retirer viserait à sauver le mariage du nouveau roi Frederik et de la future reine consort, Mary. Des rumeurs d'adultère impliquant le roi et l'actrice mexicaine Genoveva Casanova ont en effet ébranlé l'union royale, et Margrethe II aurait choisi de prendre les choses en main pour redonner une chance à cette relation.
D'après l'expert, la reine aurait toujours considéré Mary comme un atout fantastique pour la famille royale, redoutant les conséquences désastreuses d'un départ de celle-ci. En se retirant, Margrethe II espère maintenant que Frederik et Mary pourront surmonter leurs différends, réconcilier leur couple, et collaborer efficacement en tant que nouveau roi et reine du Danemark.

La reine Margrethe II , "dirigeante habile", dans son  choix de se retirer souhaite également rajeunir l'image de la monarchie bénéficiant d'un soutien public d'environ 80%  pour que le conte de fée de Mary de Danemark continue...

DESPITE THE RELEASE OF ENDGAME

THE UNITED QUARTET AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE

AROUND KING CHARLES III

An imperturbable royal family.
At all costs. Despite the stir caused in the United Kingdom by the recent publication of Omid Scobie's book, "Endgame" ("End of reign" in French), members of the monarchy continue to honor their royal commitments under the lens of photographers .

This Tuesday, December 5, 2023, King Charles III, Queen Camilla, Kate Middleton and Prince William gathered at Buckingham Palace for a diplomatic Christmas reception.

Welcoming more than 500 dignitaries to the palace lounges, they sported their royal attire, with the Princess of Wales opting for a sparkling Jenny Packham dress and her Lover's Knot tiara, demonstrating the solidarity of the clan despite the tumult.

The royal family has been at the heart of the news since the release of journalist Omid Scobie's latest work.

This book caused a real earthquake within the United Kingdom.

By highlighting racism within the monarchy, the author returns in particular to the interview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

During this interview, the couple revealed that the skin color of their son Archie had caused “concerns” within the royal family.

Omid Scobie claims to know the people involved, but refuses to disclose them in his work.

However, the Dutch version of "Endgame" broke the silence, blaming Kate Middleton and Prince Charles, which quickly led to its withdrawal from sale.

This revelation caused a resounding scandal across the Channel

THE SHOCKING MEMORIES OF BRITNEY SPEARS

EXIT FROM HELL

"THE WOMAN IN ME"

We are far from a fairy tale with the release of Britney Spears' bestseller. The one who was the adored icon of young people of the 2000s, overcame a multitude of challenges. Her meteoric rise was followed by three divorces, obsessive media intrusion, periods of depression, a custody battle, and a 13-year conservatorship, finally lifted in 2021.

“Silenced” for thirteen years by her family who had placed her under guardianship, Britney Spears speaks again at the age of 41 in uncompromising memoirs with feminist overtones. La Femme en moi, published by JC Lattès (The Woman in Me by Simon & Schuster in the United States), is released this Tuesday, October 24 in bookstores in around twenty countries. For 300 pages, the singer recounts how this guardianship dictated by her father, with the support of her mother and sister, broke “the woman in her”.

The objective of his book is clear: to regain control of one's own narrative. Written in a frank and without taboo manner, it explores each facet of her life, from her brilliant beginnings to her descent into hell in 2007, including the oppressive guardianship which deprived her of her freedom.

The opportunity for her to finally reveal her truth. From her childhood in the South of the United States to the permanent infantilization she experienced, including her breakup with Justin Timberlake

The very oral style story leaves the reader stunned. “It’s the text of a standing woman,” declares the CEO of JC Lattès editions, Véronique Cardi.

The men in her life are not spared. All, without exception. From her domineering father to her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, via her ex-husband Kevin Federline or even this journalist who asked her about her breasts when she was only 17 years old. Her latest husband, Sam Asghari, probably wouldn't have cut it either, but the story ends just before filing for divorce last August.

Violent family life.

“At home, I was afraid,” writes the singer in the first pages of her book. Britney Spears' odyssey takes root in the South of the United States, in Kentwood, Louisiana, a land where her father revealed his darkest side when he was in the grip of drunkenness. There, she says she felt a divine presence and where family traditions were marked by the wearing of coordinated clothes and mastery of firearms.

At the early age of 10, she found herself on the set of Star Search, a children's TV show. When asked by the host about the presence of a boyfriend in her life, she replies without hesitation: “No, boys are cruel.” The following year, she joined the Mickey Mouse Club, an adventure which brought her into contact with names such as Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake. She also had an affair with the latter.

Her father, Jamie Spears, who controlled all aspects of her personal and professional life for thirteen years, described as an alcoholic and violent, constantly “belittled” her over the years.

It is in this context that she says she started drinking at the age of 13, with her mother. The singer traces the family thread to try to explain the origin of this violence. Like when she returns to her paternal grandmother, Jean. Interned by her grandfather, she committed suicide at the age of 31 on her infant's grave.

Justin Timberlake: the star couple of the 2000s.

But it is truly Justin Timberlake who is at the center of the biggest revelations in the book, and suffice to say that his image comes out a little damaged. She reveals that she had an abortion at 19 while they were in a relationship. His own words reveal the pressure he faced: "If it were up to me, I never would have done this, but for Justin, fatherhood was out of the question." They chose not to see a doctor, fearing being perceived as sexual beings rather than artists.

Britney also admits to keeping this decision a secret from her family, who did not tolerate abortion, and from her fans. The weight of this event continues to haunt her 23 years after the fact.

The singer's story is painful: "I swallowed pills and had horrible cramps. I went to take refuge in the bathroom. Lying on the floor, I screamed and cried for hours , wondering if I was going to die. But they didn't take me to the hospital. Justin took his guitar and sat down next to me."

He was her great love. However, the pop star has never released the details of their separation to the public. This is now done in the book where she explains that she was “devastated” when Justin Timberlake broke up “via text” with her. The release of the video for Justin Timberlake's Cry Me a River, in which we see a woman strangely resembling him cheat on the handsome singer, makes her look like "the slut who broke the heart of the golden boy of American pop" . Britney Spears is silent, taking it in silence while she is thrown out to the media.

The cause ?

She allegedly cheated on her partner. If she admits to having cheated on the singer only once, this was, according to her, commonplace with him. Described by the media as a "slut", she was forced by her father to give an interview to American journalist Diane Sawyer who asked her what she did to Timberlake to cause him "so much pain". “I felt like I had been taken advantage of,” she wrote. “Trapped in front of the whole world.”

And it wasn't the Rolling Stone cover in 2003 that eased the tension. Christina Aguilera poses there, her pelvis pressed to that of Justin Timberlake to announce their joint tour, “the sexiest on earth” according to the magazine. And this, barely a year after Justin and Britney's breakup. "Even though they weren't trying to be cruel, I felt like they were just rubbing salt in the wound. Why was it so easy for everyone to forget that I was a human being - vulnerable enough for these headlines to leave their mark?" writes Britney Spears in her autobiography.

She was really scared of the snake at the MTV Music Awards.

Another notable moment in her life was her performance at the 2001 MTV Music Awards, where she chose to perform on stage with a snake, and not just any snake: a python. She reveals behind the scenes of this performance, pointing out that the snake hissed nearby while she sang. She had to keep her cool because she felt like he “was going to kill [her] if [she] looked at him in the eyes.”

She finally says why she shaved her head.

What about her “party girl” period? She reveals the dark behind the scenes of her overwhelming notoriety.

His memorable kiss with Madonna at the 2003 MTV Awards? It was, she said, her idea. She briefly discusses a brief but intense affair with Colin Farrell, describing it as "two weeks of fire, two weeks of struggle." Their proximity was such that they seemed to be arguing constantly.

The wild evenings with Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, once widely publicized, marked them with the stamp of debauchery and drug addiction.
However, in her book “The Woman in Me”, Britney makes it clear that she has never had a problem with drugs or alcohol.

“I enjoy drinking,” she writes, “but I have always known how to moderate myself.” Adderall, an amphetamine prescribed for attention deficit disorder, was the only substance she admitted to using.

She explains that it made her feel high, but more importantly, it relieved her of her depression. She emphasizes the differences in treatment between male artists and herself. Men “can get high and cheat on their wives at will,” while she was immediately labeled a “bad mother” and “out of control.”

The sexualization and criticism of the bodies of young celebrities.

These difficult days correspond to her custody battle over her children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, amid her divorce from dancer Kevin Federline. The loss of custody plunged her into deep disarray, pushing her to a moment of crisis in 2007 when she shaved her head and brandished an umbrella to protect herself from the paparazzi.

“With a shaved head, everyone was afraid of me, even my mother,” she confides. This radical gesture was also her way of breaking away from the oppressive beauty standards that weighed her down.

Britney talks about the scrutiny she was exposed to from a young age. She says: "I had so much eye contact growing up. Ever since I was a teenager, people looked me up and down, told me what people thought about my body."

She adds that "shaving my head and acting was my way of defending myself."
At just 15 years old, hadn't Britney signed a contract with Jive Records, marking the beginning of her irresistible rise?

Above all, she remembers that on stage, she had to play a sexy star, arousing desire at all costs, while privately remaining a nice girl who didn't make waves.

“I know a lot of people don’t understand why I like to take pictures of myself naked or in new dresses,” the “Toxic” singer wrote. “But I think if they had been photographed by others thousands of times, being featured and posing with the approval of others, they would understand that I get a lot of joy from posing in the way that I personally feel sexy and take my own photos,” continues Britney Spears. It is a strong need to regain control of her life and reclaim her body, which pushes the star to pose naked and to multiply the photographs of herself according to her

Pop culture's obsession with sexualizing and criticizing the bodies of young celebrities appears to us today as toxic and misogynistic. But in the 2000s, this was considered the norm.

Her father's 13 years of guardianship "From now on, Britney Spears is me,"

The episode of her shaved head, far from being trivial, marked a turning point in 2008, placing her under the strict supervision of her father, Jamie Spears. In "The Woman in Me," she writes, "I became a robot. No, even worse, a robot child. I had been infantilized to such an extent that I no longer recognized myself." Jamie Spears was now in charge, making every decision about her, from her medications to her diet to her music career.

Jamie seized control by declaring, "From now on, I'm Britney Spears," as the book relates in a heartbreaking passage. Britney made her return to the stage with the "Circus Tour," generating $130 million in one year. However, she only had access to $2,000 per week. During these thirteen years of total guardianship, Britney was hospitalized several times.

She couldn't choose her food, travel as she pleased, or even remove her IUD.

Why didn't she react sooner ?

“I traded my freedom for the ability to spend time with my children,” she defends. Britney is convinced her own family was plotting against her. “I have been rebellious at times, but I have done nothing to warrant being treated like a criminal.” She sums up this time by saying: "Everything escalated into thirteen years, during which I was a shadow of myself. Today, I think back to the fact that my father and his associates controlled my body and my money for so long, and it makes me sick."

Britney questions: "If I wasn't able to make decisions, why was I considered capable of performing in public ?"

She refers to the 200 shows she gave, under supervision, during her residency in Las Vegas. During her trial in 2021, she pronounced a striking sentence in front of the judge: "Madam [the president], my father and all those involved in this placement under guardianship, who played an important role in punishing me when I I said 'no' [to the tour] - Madam, they should be in prison."

On June 22, 2021, she contacted the police to file a complaint against her father. In November, the court gave him back his freedom: “The man who had terrorized me as a child and dominated me as an adult no longer had control over my life.” Since then, Britney has regained her freedom, whether to dance on Instagram or to finally tell her story.

The woman in her

The current Britney no longer thinks about music. She is looking for herself as a woman. For a long time, she was a little girl prodigy, without ever really reaching adulthood. In one of her most famous songs, "Piece of Me," she sings: "I've been Miss American Dream since I was seventeen / Whether I'm wiggling on stage or moving in the Philippines / They'll still posting pictures of my hips. Do you want a piece of me ?"

The videos she shares, sometimes quirky, arouse our curiosity. One of them shows her dancing with knives. We can say that the interpreter of “Toxic” is no longer afraid of the gaze of others.

Since the end of her guardianship in November 2021, she has shared moments of her life, even the most incongruous ones, playing the card of transparency in the captions of her posts (in mid-August, she said she was “a little shocked” by her divorce, before clarifying to her fans: are not your business"), and does not hesitate to highlight this body that she has reappropriated.

With her book “The Woman in Me,” Britney attempts to put the pieces of her existence back together.

NOBEL PRIZE OF PEACE

THE IRANNIAN ACTIVIST

NARGES MOHAMMADI AWARDED

Arrested several times since 1998, Narges Mohammadi has been sentenced to multiple prison terms and will soon have to appear on new charges. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) denounces incessant “judicial harassment” against him.

Her awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize takes on deep symbolism, especially at this time when the “Woman Life Freedom” movement has been shaking Iran for more than a year.

This protest movement, triggered by the tragic death of Mahsa Amini, a young Iranian Kurd who died in detention following her arrest for a poorly worn veil by the morality police, was violently repressed.

In a recent written interview, Narges Mohammadi claimed that this movement had accelerated the process towards democracy, freedom and equality by weakening the foundations of despotic religious government.

Presentment or chance? Two months before the start of the protests on September 16, 2022, Narges Mohammadi published a text on her Instagram account managed by her family, denouncing the obligation to wear the hijab.

“In this authoritarian regime, women's voices are muffled, women's hair is hidden (…) I, Narges Mohammadi (…) declare that I will not accept the compulsory hijab,” she proclaimed. Two months later, videos showing women burning their hijabs in Iran went viral.

Originally from Zanjan, in the northwest of Iran and born in 1972, Narges Mohammadi studied physics before becoming an engineer.

At the same time, she became involved in journalism with reformist newspapers. In the early 2000s, she joined the Center for Human Rights Defenders (of which she is now vice-president), founded by Iranian lawyer Shirin Ebadi, Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2003. She is an activist actively for the abolition of the death penalty.

“Narges had the possibility of leaving the country, but she always refused (…), she became the voice of the voiceless.

Even in prison, she does not forget her responsibilities and informs about the situation of prisoners,” confides Reza Moini, an Iranian human rights activist based in Paris who knows her well.

The UN responded to this distinction by calling for the release of Narges Mohammadi and all human rights defenders imprisoned in Iran. "

The case of Narges Mohammadi illustrates the enormous risks women take to defend the rights of all Iranians. We demand the release of Narges Mohammadi and all human rights defenders imprisoned in Iran,” the UN Human Rights Office said

HOLLYWOOD TREMBERS BEFORE SUPERSTAR 

TAYLOR SWIFT

Hollywood is shaking under the power of Taylor Swift. While the release date of her concert film, “Taylor Swift: Eras Tour”, is set for October 13, 2023, several other productions have decided to backtrack and postpone their own debuts.

The reason ?

From the first day of ticket pre-sales in AMC cinemas, the phenomenon that is this American star's film has confirmed its astonishing popularity. More than $26 million was generated, surpassing the $16 million previously held by "Spider-Man: No Way Home" in 2021.

For the first weekend of its release, forecasts soar towards more than $70 million in revenue, immediately placing the singer's film among the most anticipated blockbusters of the year.

Faced with this tidal wave, director Jon Gunn deemed it wise to postpone the release of his film, “Ordinary Angels”, with Hilary Swank, also scheduled for October 13, to February 23, 2024.

Jason Blum, the producer of the next film "The Exorcist: Devotion", also initially scheduled for October 13, preferred to move up its date, fearing that Taylor Swift's artistic superpower would obscure his own masterpiece.

He even joked about it on X, formerly Twitter, by making an allusion to one of Taylor Swift's songs, concluding with the hashtag "#TaylorWins."

Taylor Swift's Phenomenal Effect

Taylor Swift is on all fronts. Last July, the 33-year-old American superstar released her 12th album titled "Speak Now (Taylor's Version)", which immediately took first place on the Billboard charts.

With this new achievement, she became the singer with the greatest number of albums ranked at the top of the sales of this famous American ranking since its creation in 1963. Thus, she dethroned Barbra Streisand, another icon of American popular music , who held this title until then.

In October 2022, the release of his tenth album even caused outages on Spotify and Deezer. "The Taylor Swift effect" has even made its way to the president of the New York Fed, who says the 33-year-old artist's tour has boosted the U.S. economy in recent months.

With 147 stadiums filled and nearly a billion in revenue generated, Taylor Swift looks like a true giant who seems to intimidate everything that crosses her path.

DONALD TRUMP BILL GATES JANE FONDA AL CAPONE

THESE MUGSHOTS MADE HISTORY

It is one of those historical sequences that hold the country spellbound.

Donald Trump arrived at an Atlanta prison on Thursday to surrender to authorities in the US state of Georgia, who charged him with attempting to manipulate the 2020 presidential election.

Donald Trump has joined the cohort of American celebrities who have been the subject of a legal cliché, or "mugshot", an image often transformed to their advantage by the accused.

Frowning eyebrows, determined gaze staring straight in the eye: the judicial cliché of Donald Trump has barely begun to circulate in the media that it is already etched in history.

By becoming the first former US president to be criminally charged, he was also the first to be photographed by judicial authorities in a prison in Atlanta, Georgia.

He is now "on file" like any defendant prosecuted, with his detailed physical characteristics: 1m90, 98 kg, Venetian blond hair, number P01135809.

It is mainly in the United States that we find many photos of arrests.

And for good reason, in the country, the "mugshots" are part of the public domain, the Constitution requiring that the judicial process be as open and transparent as possible.

For this reason, photos are not classified as private information.

More importantly, anyone who tries to prevent their dissemination could be subject to legal action.

From Justin Bieber to Bill Gates, via Al Capone or OJ Simpson, this image joins a gallery of historical photographs.

Al Capone
Arrested in 1931, Al Capone, who dominated organized crime in Chicago in the 1920s, was convicted of tax evasion. This photograph taken by the Chicago (Illinois) police captured the notorious American gangster, sentenced to eleven years in prison and incarcerated in Alcatraz.

Jane Fonda
American actress Jane Fonda was arrested at Cleveland, Ohio airport in 1970 for drug trafficking, a charge eventually dropped when tests revealed her suitcase contained only vitamins.

Taking the opportunity, she struck a defiant pose at the police station, fist raised, in support of her activism against the Vietnam War. To this day, Jane Fonda sells clothes and coffee mugs featuring her arrest photo on her website. "I certainly benefited from this arrest," the activist actress told the Los Angeles Times in 2018.

Bill Gates
Aged 22 at the time, the young Bill Gates was arrested in 1977 by the police of Albuquerque (New Mexico) for driving without a license. From this arrest, there remains a famous "mugshot" showing the future Microsoft magnate displaying a broad smile in front of the police lens.

OJ Simpson
One of the most significant court photos in history: In 1994, former American football player OJ Simpson was arrested by Los Angeles police, charged with the murder of his ex-wife and her friend.

A week later, the "mugshot" made the front page of Time magazine with the headline "An American Tragedy." This image still adorns a multitude of merchandise today, from simple t-shirts to electric guitars.

Hugh Grant
In 1995, comedian Hugh Grant was arrested for "sexual exhibition". Caught in Los Angeles with a prostitute in a car, the British actor was in a relationship with Liz Hurley at the time. Accused of sexual exhibition, he was photographed by the police in Los Angeles (California), his embarrassed expression making the rounds of the tabloids.

Justin Bieber
Canadian pop-star Justin Bieber was first arrested in Miami in 2014, driving a Lamborghini convertible, drunk and recklessly driving. A few days later, he was arrested again in Canada for assaulting a limousine driver.

Rudy Giuliani
Former Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani voluntarily surrendered to jail in Georgia last Wednesday before being released on bail. Like Donald Trump, he faces alleged charges of unlawful attempts to reverse the result of the 2020 election won in Georgia by Democratic President Joe Biden. It's a dizzying fall for the former mayor of New York, nicknamed the "mayor of America" ​​after the September 11 attacks.

And this legal cliché which could pass for infamy for a former president of the United States is brandished as a standard by Donald Trump: he immediately posted the photo on his account X (ex-Twitter). With his forensic photo, Donald Trump turns his charges into a cash machine.

BRITNEY SPEARS BREAKS THE SILENCE ON HER DIVORCE WITH SAM ASGHARI

This Wednesday August 16, 2023, the media TMZ revealed that Britney Spears and Sam Asghari, who seemed to have been spinning the perfect love for more than six years, were taking different paths. According to our American colleagues, it was suspicions of infidelity, but also outbursts of anger and violence that would have led the couple to break up;

This Saturday August 19 on Instagram, the one who has recently reconnected with her children has also delivered with an open heart on this separation.

On Janet Jackson's song If, which describes the fantasies of a woman in love with a man who doesn't even know she exists, Britney Spears wanted to reassure her fans this Saturday August 19, 2023 after the announcement of her divorce with Sam Asghari.

“Actually, I’m doing pretty well!” she says.

"As everyone knows, Hesam [full first name of her future ex-husband, Editor's note] and I are no longer together... Six years is a long time to be with someone so I'm a little shocked but... I'm not here to explain why," she begins.

"But," she continues, "I honestly couldn't take the pain anymore!!!

I've been pretending like everything's fine for too long and my Instagram looks perfect, but that's far from reality and I think we all know that."

The day before, Sam Asghari also spoke on Instagram.

"After six years of commitment to each other, my wife and I have decided to end our affair together. We will keep the love and respect that we have for each other and I will wish the best forever“, he had written in story.

The rumor had notably swelled around a possible adultery of the star of the song as well as a tumultuous argument.

The couple, who met in 2016 on the set of the singer's Slumber Party clip, married in May 2022.

This union was the first for Sam Asghari, and the third for the 41-year-old singer.

This one was notably married less than three days in 2004 with a childhood friend, Jason Alexander, who had also tried to embed himself in his marriage with Sam Asghari. He was later convicted of felony trespass and assault.

Hollywood divorce lawyer Laura Wasser is expected to defend the Everytime singer in the case.

Britney Spears and Sam Asghari's divorce comes just a year after they lost their baby. A difficult ordeal which prevented them from having the child they so hoped for.

"It is with our greatest sadness that we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy. It is a devastating moment for any parent", had revealed the star in May 2022 on her Instagram account .

HARRISON FORD GIVE HIS NAME

TO AN AMAZONIAN SNAKE

Unlike Harrison Ford Indiana Jones hates snakes. Remember: in a cult scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the most famous archaeologist must face hundreds of reptiles and on this occasion, even the steadfast adventurer lets out this cry from the heart: "Why do I always have to dealing with snakes ?

Laments the adventurer […] I hate snakes. »

In a nod to the hero of a famous saga, scientists have just named a whole new species of snake after Harrison Ford.Harrison

Every day, the 'Harrison Ford' snake makes its life in Otishi National Park, Peru.

A new species discovered at an altitude of more than 3,000 m bears. Unknown to any experts on this species, the "Harrison Ford" snake was discovered in May 2022 during an expedition led by German-American biologist Edgar Lehr, in the mountain pastures of Otishi National Park at an altitude over 3200m.

The area where this snake was discovered is only accessible by helicopter. A male was spotted basking in a swamp in Otishi National Park last May. It stands out from its congeners by its singular camouflage, sporting yellow to ocher colors, with black spots which make it difficult to spot on the ground. According to the BBC, Tachymenoides harrisonfordi poses no danger to humans. It feeds mainly on frogs and lizards.

“Scientists keep naming bugs after me”

But why did scientists want to name this snake Harrison Ford ?

The actor, himself, claims to "not understand" this practice, he who has already given his name to a Calponia harrisonfordi spider and to a Pheidole harrisonfordi ant.

"Scientists keep naming bugs my name, but they're always the ones that scare kids," he tweeted.

Behind this little touch of humor, the hero of the "Indiana Jones" saga has agreed to give his name to this species, he who is very committed "to the protection of the environment", according to the German-American biologist Edgar Lehr.

The 81-year-old actor is known for his actions for the NGO Conservation International, of which he is vice-president.

The NGO Conservation International, of which the actor is a prominent member of the board of directors, chose to name the species in his honor to salute his efforts in favor of environmental protection, from tropical forests to the seabed.

It is therefore "in homage to his work" that his name was used according to the journal Salamandra which published the scientific study.

The actor took the opportunity to deliver, again, the ecological message that is dear to him: “Seriously, this discovery is a lesson in humility. It's a reminder that there's still so much to learn about our wild world - and that humans are just a small part of an incredibly vast biosphere.

On this planet, all fates are linked, and at this moment, thousands of species are on the verge of oblivion. We have an existential mandate to mend our broken relationship with nature and protect the places that sustain life.

UNFORTUNATELY NO EFFECTIVE TREATMENT AGAINST CELINE DION'S DISEASE

Celine Dion's state of health is still worrying. Celine Dion has also been forced to cancel all her concert dates until April 2024

The singer is suffering from an extremely rare “stiff man syndrome”, a distressing neurological disease. 

The latest news from the singer comes from her sister Claudette, who confided in the Journal de Montréal.

The rare pathology from which Celine Dion suffers does not benefit from effective treatment to date. However, she can console herself with the precious support of her other sister, the indefatigable Linda, who left her home to relocate with her and her three cherubs, the fruit of her union with the late René Angélil, who died in l 2016.

“Linda reveals to me that Céline is investing body and soul in this quest, consulting the most eminent specialists in this enigmatic disease”, confided Claudette Dion. I think she especially needs to rest. When she goes on stage, she always pushes the limits, she always tries to give the best of herself. At some point, your heart and your body sound the alarm. It is important to listen. »

The singer is also working hard to maintain her fitness, so she'll be ready when she starts performing again. No member of her family doubts that she will recover: “We trust her, it is innate in her. We can't find an effective treatment, but it's important to have hope. »

Celine Dion revealed her illness in December 2022 in a video posted on YouTube.

"I've had health problems for a long time and it's not easy for me to deal with them," confided the singer. Recently I was diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called stiff-person syndrome, which affects approximately one in a million people.

We don't know everything about this disease yet, but we now know that it is the cause of the muscle spasms I suffer from."

These painful spasms influence all aspects of Celine Dion's life, including her ability to sing. With this in mind, the diva is forced to cancel all her concerts in order to concentrate her efforts on her recovery.

Courage Celine we love you !

While the Canadian journalist was talking to her about her six children, Robert de Niro hastened to correct the information.

"Seven, actually. I just had a baby," he revealed.

But it was not until Thursday, May 11, 2023 that the Oscar-winning actor decided to lift the veil on this mysterious newborn, during an intervention on the CBS Morning program.

Page Six and other outlets reported that his girlfriend, Tiffany Chen, who had shown a baby bump on private outings in recent weeks, recently gave birth. The couple have known each other since 2015 but would only be together since 2021, three years after the actor's divorce from Grace Hightower.

The child's mother would be Tiffany Cheng, Robert de Niro's supposed companion since 2021. A professional Tai-chi athlete, they met on the set of the film "The New Intern". The 45-year-old was then the martial arts teacher for the feature film team.


De Niro, who is 79, has had six more children with three women over the past 35 years. The eldest is Drena, 51, whom De Niro adopted when he married his mother, Diahnne Abbott, in 1976. De Niro also had Raphael, 46, with Diahnne Abbott.

DONALD TRUMP FOUND GUILTY OF SEXUAL ASSAULT AND DEFAMATION

After a two-week civil trial, a jury of six men and three women found Donald Trump responsible for sexually assaulting and defaming former Elle magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll.

The former president will have to pay $5 million in compensatory and punitive damages for the sexual assault and defamation.

E. Jean Carroll, 79, spoke in a written statement.

"I filed this lawsuit against Donald Trump to clear my name and get my life back. Today, the world finally knows the truth. This victory is not just for me, but for all women who have suffered because 'They weren't believed,' she claimed.

E. Jean Carroll said she was encouraged to break her long silence on the sexual assault by the Harvey Weinstein case and the #metoo movement. In a book published in 2019, E. Jean Carroll accused Donald Trump of raping her in a fitting room at the Bergdorf Goodman store on 5th Avenue in Manhattan in 1996. The former president denied the accusation on Truth Social in 2022, calling the case a " total scam", "a 'hoax' and a 'lie'.

The jury rejected the allegation that Donald Trump raped E. Jean Carroll, that is, he had sex with her without her consent. But he concluded that the property developer had sexually assaulted the journalist.

'A disgrace,' says Trump

Donald Trump, he had made his reaction known immediately after the announcement of the verdict in a message published on Truth Social, his platform.

"I have absolutely no idea who this woman is," he wrote.

This verdict is a disgrace – a continuation of the greatest witch hunt of all time

Later, on Fox News Digital, he added, “We will appeal. We were treated very badly by the judge appointed by [Bill] Clinton. "I have no idea who this woman is."

His lawyer, Joe Tacopina, has also promised to appeal the verdict.

“Strange verdict,” he told reporters.

"It was a rape complaint, it was a rape case all along, and the jury dismissed that complaint and made other findings. We will obviously appeal those other findings."

FOR HEALTH REASON

STROMAE STOPS HIS TOUR

Stromae stops his tour for health reasons. The Belgian singer of 38 years explains having to take time for him in order to go up the slope. If he hoped to get back on stage quickly, his remission time will be longer than he hoped.

For several weeks now, concerns have been hovering over his state of health.

Stromae resigns himself to putting an end to his tour. On social networks, the Belgian star announced on Tuesday that he needed "rest" and completely stopped his "Multitude Tour", already partially stopped and which was to last until December 2023.

"Stromae's state of health does not allow him to ensure his performance", indicated his tour producer, Auguri.

In a message posted on Instagram, he confides to his fans and his community: "I have to resign myself to the fact that my health unfortunately does not allow me to continue to come to meet you for the moment. I share this news with you with a lot of regret and deep sadness, but I have to listen to my limits".

Stromae admits not feeling well for a while now: "A few months ago, I felt a deterioration in my state of health which led me to give up a few first dates in France and then in Europe".

The 38-year-old singer claims to be surrounded by "[his] doctors, [his] family, [his] friends and [his] team". A precious entourage to support him in this umpteenth ordeal and help him through the difficulties he encounters.

The artist was back on stage in the summer of 2022 after a long period of absence caused by depression, accompanied by "suicidal thoughts" which he had sung in his title "Hell".

Before the total cancellation of his tour, Stromae had already announced the cancellation of 15 concerts until the end of May.

"I was hoping to be able to recover quickly to get back on the road and find you as soon as possible" lamented Stromae on his social networks. “Unfortunately, today I have to accept that this time of rest and remission will be longer than I imagined”.

Stromae confides that "this decision is difficult and necessary to be able to get better" and presents his "sincere apologies for these missed appointments that I was waiting for as much as you".

Prince William knelt before his king father in Westminster Abbey to swear allegiance to him.

But according to people magazines, this prince who had a past affair with Rose Hanbury, Marchioness of Cholmondeley, the King's Grand Chamberlain, would be "angry and resentful", and more serious, accused by his brother Harry of being "sold":

And yet when we see him with his lovely Kate and her children...

Alejandra, this is the first name of the young woman, would have been born at the end of the 70s, the beginning of the 80s.

She would be the fruit of one of his extramarital affairs with a woman "a great socialite" known in her youth, from the aristocracy and older than him.

The author of the book also claims that the existence of the young woman was known at the Zarzuela Palace...

Another love disappointment for Sophie Marceau who would have broken with the theater producer Richard Caillat, too invested in his work in Marseille.

It is in tears that Sophie would have asked her lover one last time during a Parisian dinner to commit, in vain.

And the favorite actress of the French would have separated from her agent Elisabeth Tanner.

But here she turns out to be a writer with the release of "Souterraine", a funny book, where childhood memories and tales mingle.

THE CROWN OF KING CHARLES III

As tradition dictates, the monarch wears, among other things, the crown of Saint Edward. This historic gem, which recently left the Tower of London for alterations, was created in 1661.

An exceptional crown.

St Edward's Crown, the centerpiece of the Crown Jewels worn by Elizabeth II at her coronation in 1953, in turn capped her son Charles within days.

More than two kilos of silverware

Traditionally worn by British monarchs at the time of their coronation, this piece was created for King Charles II in 1661, to replace the medieval crown that had been cast down in 1649.

It is not an identical replica of the medieval model, but like the original, the crown of Saint Edward retains its symbolic elements.

Commissioned from the royal goldsmith, Robert Vyner, in 1661, it is designed in solid gold and set with 444 precious stones (ruby, sapphire, amethyst, topaz, etc.), 30 centimeters high and no less than 2.23 kg.

Composed of its purple velvet, which gives it its recognizable hue, and of ermine at its base, it is made up of four pattée crosses, alternating with four fleur-de-lys.

On its upper part, two arches set with pearls support a cruciger orb, above which sits a final cross pattée, also richly decorated. In total, the crown is valued at more than 4 million euros.

An ever-powerful symbolic value

This is not the only crown that Charles III wears on the day of the ceremony, each symbolizing the monarch's authority over an element of his kingdom.

Thus, during the service led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the 74-year-old monarch also wears the imperial ceremonial crown, a piece regularly worn by Elizabeth II, notably on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during her coronation.

A crown that had also sat on his coffin for two days. Moreover, two monarchs since 1661 have replaced the crown of Saint Edward for their coronation, judging it too heavy, Queen Victoria and Edward VII.

Even today, this purple crown is used as a symbol of royal authority in the Commonwealth realms.

Other jewels embodying the British monarchy

The dove scepter

This scepter, made up of a golden stick, adorned with a globe, a cross and a dove at its top, represents the spiritual and pastoral power of the sovereign. It has been used at every coronation since that of Charles II in 1661. 110 centimeters long, it weighs 1,150 grams.

The scepter at the cross

Also used since 1661, the scepter represents the temporal power of the sovereign. It weighs 1170 grams for 92 centimeters long. In 1911 the 530.2 carat Cullinan I diamond was added, so heavy that the scepter had to be reinforced to support its weight.

The royal orb

This 27.5 centimeter globe surmounted by a cross symbolizes the Christian world. It consists of a hollow gold sphere set with precious stones and pearls. A cross set with diamonds, with a sapphire in the center on one side and an emerald on the other, surmounts the globe. During the coronation ceremony, the orb is placed in the right hand of the monarch, before being placed on the altar.

The Dove Cane

Used for all queen consort coronations since 1685, this small ivory scepter surmounted by a dove will be held by Queen Camilla during the ceremony, despite calls not to use it in opposition to the ivory trade. Camilla will also be given a gold scepter surmounted by a cross.

the light bulb

This golden object in the shape of an eagle with outstretched wings contains the oil used during the anointing of the sovereign, considered the most sacred moment of the coronation. The Archbishop of Canterbury pours oil from the eagle's head into a spoon, before anointing the monarch. The figure of the eagle comes from a legend according to which the Virgin Mary appeared to Saint Thomas Becket, and gave him a golden eagle and a vial of oil intended for the anointing of future kings of England.

spurs

These gold spurs, symbolizing chivalry, have been used since the coronation of Richard the Lionheart in 1189. They are attached to the ankles of sovereigns, and in the case of queens simply placed on the altar.

The state dress

This large purple silk and velvet cape is embroidered with the monarch's monogram, ears of wheat and olive branches. Made especially for the coronation, it required 3,500 hours of work by twelve seamstresses from the Royal School of Couture.

King Edward's chair

Commissioned by King Edward I in 1300, this oak throne, over 2 meters high, has been at the center of royal coronations for over seven hundred years. It originally encapsulated the "Stone of Destiny", a block of sandstone symbolizing the Scottish monarchy and brought from Scotland as spoils of war by Edward I.

Briefly stolen by Scottish students during a daring undertaking in 1950, the stone was symbolically returned to Scotland in 1996, in the midst of the rise of independence sentiment. But it is agreed that she will return from Edinburgh Castle to Westminster for the coronations.

The Cross of Wales

Another symbol of the king's spiritual power, this silver cross contains fragments, according to the Vatican, of the cross on which Jesus was crucified, and offered by Pope Francis as a gift to mark the coronation of Charles. These fragments were fashioned into a small cross appearing behind a pink rock crystal. The Cross of Wales will be used at the head of the Coronation Procession, which will lead the newly crowned King from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.

“The coronation will reflect the role of the monarch today and look to the future, while being rooted in the long tradition and pomp of the monarchy,” according to a royal statement.

THE COURSE OF THE CORONATION OF CHARLES III

The coronation of Charles III will take place with all the pomp that characterizes such an event, but with a little more austerity this time, according to the wishes of the new sovereign. It has been 70 years since such an event took place.

The Charles III coronation will take place this Saturday May 6 in London, 70 years after Elizabeth II was crowned on June 2, 1953. Unlike his late mother, who was crowned at the age of 26, King Charles III becomes monarch at age 74.

The celebrations will last three days, until Monday.

Schedules not to be missed

Hours are local.

11.20 King's Parade: The King and Queen proceed from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey for the Coronation.

12.00 Coronation service (estimated duration: 90 minutes). Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby leads the service at Westminster Abbey.

14.00 Coronation Procession: The King and Queen Consort return to Buckingham Palace with other members of the Royal Family.

15.00 Balcony appearance: The King and Queen Consort appear on the balcony at Buckingham Palace with other members of the Royal Family

The royal procession will go to Westminster Abbey.

Westminster Abbey is one of the most important religious sites in the country. The tradition began with William the Conqueror who was anointed king in 1066 in this location, Charles III would become the 40th monarch to be crowned in the abbey.

Some 7,000 troops will take part in the events, which had a major dress rehearsal last weekend. The country may not have seen a military operation of such magnitude for 70 years and everything must work to the millimeter.

Event security

Initially, just under 200 members of the armed forces - mainly from the Sovereign's Escort of the Royal Household Cavalry - will take part in the procession to Westminster Abbey. Soldiers will begin assembling from 10:45 a.m. Central European Time).

A thousand other members of the armed forces will follow the route, but the procession as a whole will be much smaller than that of 1953, which was attended by other royal families and Commonwealth prime ministers.

The procession will descend the Mall to Trafalgar Square, then along Whitehall and Parliament Street before taking Parliament Square and Broad Sanctuary to reach the Great West Gate of Westminster Abbey.

Breaking with tradition, King Charles and Queen Camilla will travel in the Diamond Jubilee State Coach, rather than the older and more cumbersome Golden State Coach, which will only be used for the journey back.

At Westminster Abbey.

The recognition of the king.

The first thing that will happen at the abbey will be recognition from the king. Next to the 700-year-old throne, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will turn to either side of the abbey and proclaim Charles "indisputable king" before asking those gathered to pay their respects and serve. The trumpets will sound at each recognition.

Charles III will then take the oath. He will lay his hand on the Holy Gospel and meet that legal requirement. King Charles could add a few words to acknowledge the many faiths seen in the country.

The king will then sit on the coronation chair where he will be anointed with sacred oil, consecrated in Jerusalem by the Archbishop of Canterbury, as a sign of the grace granted by God to the sovereign. This moment highlights the spiritual role of the sovereign, who is also the head of the Anglican Church. The vial was made for the coronation of Charles II. The coronation spoon is much older, having survived the destruction of the regalia by Oliver Cromwell after the English Civil War. For the coronation, oil was made from olives harvested from the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

Investiture

Will follow the stage of the investiture during which Charles III will receive all the jewels: orbs, swords and rings. Finally, the Archbishop will lay the heavy crown of Saint Edward on his head. This crown will only be worn on this day. The crown owes its name to a much older version made for the Anglo-Saxon king and saint Edward the Confessor. It would have been used at coronations after 1220, until Cromwell had it melted down.

After the investiture, the enthronement .

Charles III will take the throne. The throne was originally created by order of King Edward I of England to guard the Stone of Destiny, which was stolen near Scone (Scotland). The stone, a former symbol of the Scottish monarchy, was returned to Scotland in 1996 but is due to return to London for use in the ceremony. During the coronation, the oak chair is placed in the center of the historical medieval mosaic floor, known as the "Cosmati pavement", in front of and facing the high altar, in order to emphasize the religious character of the ceremony.

At the start of the ceremony, the king will likely wear a military uniform instead of the more traditional baggy trousers and silk stockings worn by the kings who preceded him. The king will also wear the ceremonial robe, which he will remove before receiving the anointing.

The UK is the only European country that continues to use the symbols of royalty, such as the crown, orb and scepters, at coronations. These items symbolize different aspects of the monarch's service and responsibilities.

Coronation of Queen Camilla,

Charles' wife, Queen Camilla, will also be crowned, but in a shorter format and without as much protocol. She won't have to take an oath, but she will be anointed, crowned and enthroned. At the coronation, Camilla will receive the Queen Consort's Rod with the Dove and the Queen Consort's Scepter with the Cross. She will be crowned with Queen Mary's crown, originally made for Queen Mary's coronation with George V. It has been modified to remove some of the protrusions and has been set with diamonds.

At the end of this ceremony, Prince William will kneel before the King as the eldest son of Charles and the next heir to the Crown. This moment will replace the traditional tribute of peers, during which a group of the high nobility took an oath of allegiance in person to the king. In his place, and for the first time in history, the archbishop will invite all Britons to swear allegiance in a loud voice to the monarch and his heirs, a call that has sparked controversy.

The music played during the coronation

The ceremony inside the Abbey will be enlivened by music chosen by the King, with 12 newly commissioned pieces, including one by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Greek Orthodox music in memory of the King's father, the Prince Philip.

Part of the ceremony will be sung in Welsh. The famous Welsh opera singer Sir Bryn Terfel will be among the soloists.

The celebrations will be very varied since there will be music in many corners of the country. The idea is to try to include all kinds of styles so that citizens don't feel disconnected.

Guests at the coronation of Charles III

Among the 2,000 guests will also be the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, as well as the King and Queen of Spain, among other representatives. We are far from the 8,000 people who attended the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

Perhaps the most anticipated guest is Prince Harry, after the controversial publication of his memoir. He will be present without his wife Meghan Markle and their children who will remain in California.

Prince George will be one of the King's Four Pages of Honor. Camilla's four pages will be her three grandchildren and her great-nephew.

Some of the participants in the procession inside the abbey will wear the king's regalia, and most items will be placed on the altar until they are used in the ceremony.

The king on the balcony of honor

The King and Queen will descend from their thrones and will likely enter St Edward's Chapel, where Charles will don the Imperial Crown of State before joining the procession that will exit the Abbey to the sound of the national anthem.

The royal couple will then return to Buckingham Palace by the reverse route from their arrival, this time in the 260-year-old 'Gold State Coach', which has been used for every coronation since that of William IV in 1831.

If you want to take part in the salute that the king and his family will give from the balcony at around 3 p.m. (2 p.m. in London), you will need to plan ahead enough to get to Buckingham Palace. The King will appear and greet all participants. This salute will mark the end of the official coronation day ceremonies.

Celebrations will be held across the country

On Sunday, a coronation concert will take place at Windsor Castle, with a full orchestra accompanied by an eclectic selection of musical stars: from Andrea Bocelli to Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, Take That and classical pianist Lang Lang.

Landmarks across the UK will also be illuminated with projections and drone shows.

The festivities will continue the same day with the Big Lunch, during which neighbors and communities will be encouraged to share meals and have fun in their neighborhood.

To top off the celebrations, on Monday, May 8, declared a public holiday, citizens will be encouraged to participate in "The Big Help Out", an initiative to collaborate with local volunteer work.

MET GALA 2023 DEDICATED TO THE LATE KARL LAGERFELD

A SOMPTUOUS RED CARPET

T he most anticipated red carpet on the fashion calendar has arrived.

Like every first Monday of May, the stars met in New York for the Met Gala 2023.

This year, the Met Gala celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute's exhibition Karl Lagerfeld, A Line of Beauty.

The latter retraces the extraordinary career of the Kaiser.

More than a simple retrospective turned to the past, the exhibition highlights the creative process of Karl Lagerfeld whose virtuoso pencil stroke captured a look, in a few seconds, through the analysis of his sketches, confronted with his creations for the houses he has sublimated, from Chloé to Balmain via Jean Patou. In total, more than 150 pieces are exhibited.

Passed away in February 2019, the legendary couturier who revolutionized Fendi from 1965 and Chanel from 1983 is at the heart of the annual theme

The dress code for the Met Gala 2023 evening was in keeping with the Karl Lagerfeld theme:

A Line of Beauty. Attendees were told the dress code was "in honor of Karl", which opens up a world of possibilities, from wearing one of the many brands the late designer lent his talents to throughout his career. long career - Chanel, Chloé, Fendi and its eponymous lines, among others - until the tribute paid to Lagerfeld's characteristic dark sunglasses.

The festivities were co-chaired by Dua Lipa, Penélope Cruz, Roger Federer, and Michaela Coel. These four influential and inspiring personalities presided over the evening alongside Anna Wintour, honorary president.

he challenge has been taken up... and one of the big winners is undoubtedly Jared Leto.

The musician (30 Seconds to Mars) and actor appeared on the red carpet in a giant white cat costume. A reference to Choupette, Karl Lagerfeld's iconic cat.

A similar choice was made by artist Doja Cat, who also arrived at the party in an outfit reminiscent of Choupette.

In a nod to Karl Lagerfeld's penchant for pearls, the looks of Kim Kardashian and Lizzo at the Met Gala were imbued with them, noted our colleagues from CNN. “I thought to myself: What is more Karl ?

I have always thought of Chanel's emblematic pearls", justified Kim Kardashian, reports the American media.

While most of the men present opted for black or white suits, the new star of the moment, Pedro Pascal, starring in the series The Last of Us, opted for a bright red outfit... with a black shorts.

nother very surprising outfit: that of Lil Nas X, who presented himself entirely painted in silver, with rhinestones and pearls covering his face. 

he choice of artist Janelle Monáe, who also paid tribute to Choupette, also marked the public.

Arriving a little later with A$AP Rocky, Rihanna also caused a sensation.

Rihanna arrived on the red carpet on the arm of her partner, rapper A$AP Rocky, in an impressive immaculate white wedding dress, accompanied in particular by a wraparound coat with a hood on which flowers have been embroidered.

A few minutes after entering, the Bitch Better Have My Money interpreter dropped part of the jacket to reveal the rest of her outfit, thereby emphasizing her rounded belly. The set signed Maison Valentino.

A clothing choice that is undoubtedly not insignificant: at each finale of the Chanel fashion shows, under the artistic direction of Karl Lagerfeld, the wedding dress was a highly anticipated moment.

But the "longest" tribute this night to Karl Lagerfeld was undoubtedly made by Jeremy Pope, with an outfit... bearing the image of the couturier.

JOKE ABOUT JOE BIDEN'S AGE

AT THE CORRESPONDENTS DINNER

The jokes of Daily Show comedian Roy Wood Jr made President Joe Biden laugh at the White House correspondents' gala dinner on Saturday evening, April 29, 2023.

This annual evening, which brings together all of Washington politicians and the media, celebrates in theory the first amendment to the American Constitution defending the freedom of the press. But in practice, we mostly remember the jokes.

Daily Show comedian Roy Wood Jr underlined the age of Mr. Biden who, a candidate for re-election, could remain in office until he is 86 if he wins. By mentioning the demonstrations in France against the pension reform.

Daily Show comedian Roy Wood Jr

“They revolted because they didn't want to work until they were 64. Meanwhile, in the United States, we have an 80-year-old man who begs us to work four more years,” he quipped, provoking a broad smile from the head of state, seated a few meters away.

“'Let me finish the job': it's not a campaign slogan, it's a plea,” continued the comedian. “Say what you want about our president but when he wakes up from [his] nap, the job is done. »

The American president took and replied on Saturday to the humorous spades about his age during the gala dinner of the correspondents of the White House.

"Call me old - I call that seasoned," the president replied. “They say I'm an elder - I say I'm wise. They say I'm not very young anymore – Don Lemon would say I'm a man of first youth”.

Don Lemon, a star CNN anchor, was recently fired by the channel after he sparked controversy when he said Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley, 51, was "no longer young."

Mr. Biden also reserved a spade for Rupert Murdoch, the 92-year-old media mogul and owner of the conservative Fox News channel.

“You might think I don't like Rupert Murdoch. It's not true. How could I not like a man who makes me look like Harry Styles? “joked the American president, in reference to the 29-year-old British star.

The appeal of the correspondents' dinner, which is held in the vast room of the Washington Hilton, had somewhat withered in recent years, between the boycott of Donald Trump and the pandemic.

But this year the event was sold out, with 2,600 guests, including Mr. Biden and his vice-president Kamala Harris. The presence of the two heads of the executive revives a tradition lost since the presidency of Donald Trump.

THE DONBASS GIRL OR THE AMERICAN IMPOSSOR

VOICE OF RUSSIA

For her supporters, the person behind the profile "Donbass Devushka", or "Daughter of Donbass", is a Russian woman from the city of Luhansk.

She spoke with a slight Russian accent. She professed her admiration for Vladimir Putin to the hundreds of thousands of subscribers to her various social media accounts. But Donbass Devushka - literally the girl of Donbass in Russian - actually had no connection with Russia and spoke perfect English.

In reality, she is a 100% “made in the USA” 30-year-old who lives in the Washington region, in the United States, confirmed to be called Sarah Bils, in an interview granted to the Wall Street Journal, Sunday April 16. The famous daily presents her as a key element in the dissemination of “Pentagon leaks” - the famous classified documents of the American intelligence services - on Russian social networks.

Interviews with top pro-Russian bloggers

In the interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sarah Bils confessed to being behind the "Donbass Devushka" character, as well as fundraising and hosting podcasts under that name. She added, however, that the eponymous account was managed by fourteen other people based "all over the world", without indicating their identity. According to her, another moderator of her Telegram channel would have disseminated the classified information, she being aware of the "seriousness" of such documents.

Because “the daughter of Donbass” is not alone in playing pro-Russian propaganda on her social networks. Since 2021, this former soldier has built a "small empire of pro-Russian disinformation", which would occupy about fifteen people from its North American suburbs, says Nafo, a group of pro-Ukrainian activists, who were the first to discover the true identity of Donbass Devushka.

On her YouTube channel, she regularly posts long interviews with all the top pro-Russian bloggers and self-proclaimed independent journalists in the English-speaking world. Personalities like Jackson Hinkle or Eva Bartlett, who are among the top 10 non-Russian "influencers" to support Moscow, according to the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, discuss the "inevitable decline of the West" or even the how the United States is using Ukraine to attack Russia.

On Telegram, Sarah Bils does not hesitate to share more violent content with her community, which is 65,000 strong.

Sarah Bils seems to have become the propaganda mistress of Moscow. His career, however, gave no indication of such a professional specialty. Despite her assertions, the one who pretended to be Donbass Devushka never set foot in Russia and even less in the Donbass.

Before her blogging job, Sarah Bils had been promoted at the end of 2020 to a senior non-commissioned officer rank in aeronautical electronics, recalls the Wall Street Journal, in support of the promotion files published on the Navy website. In November last year, however, the 30-year-old left the army with a lower rank, a significant demotion that cannot be explained at this time. Contacted, neither the navy nor the American Department of Justice wished to answer the questions of the American newspaper.

In the meantime, she had set up a small business selling… fish food. She even participated in podcasts on this theme, which is nevertheless very far from Russophile considerations.

“The antithesis of an America they no longer support”

It was only with the start of the big offensive in February 2022 that Sarah Bils turned into a staunch supporter of the Russian cause. “She built one of the fastest growing English-speaking pro-Putin communities,” said Pekka Kallioniemi, a researcher at the University of Tampere in Finland and a member of the Nafo collective.

Difficult to explain this professional retraining. But she is far from the only one to have chosen to become an influencer in the service of Moscow. “The vast majority of this English-speaking support for Russia comes from the United States or Europe,” says Jeff Hawn, Russia specialist and outside consultant for the New Lines Institute, an American center for geopolitical research.

This is not, however, a sign of Vladimir Putin's growing popularity in the Western world, says this specialist. "In the United States, most of these supporters of Moscow are promoting Russia because it embodies the antithesis of an America they no longer support," says Jeff Hawn.

With these relays in the English-speaking world, Moscow can boast of having popular support. What could be more distant, a priori, from the corridors of the Kremlin than a former soldier reconverted in the sale of fish products in a small American town.

CORONATION OF CHARLES III

WITH HARRY BUT WITHOUT MEGHAN

Preparation for the official coronation of King Charles III on May 6, 2023 is in full swing. An event that has not taken place since 1953 and the enthronement of Queen Elizabeth II, who remained more than seventy years at the head of the British monarchy.

On the program are three days of festivities, a ceremony at Westminster Abbey broadcast on television around the world, friendship lunches, a major concert at Windsor Castle and a call for volunteers.

Even Prince Harry, withdrawn from the British monarchy, will attend the coronation of his father Charles III on May 6, 2023 at Westminster Abbey in London, Buckingham Palace announced.

"The Palace is pleased to confirm that the Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation," the Crown wrote in its statement.

His wife Meghan Markle will not accompany him, on this day which will also mark the fourth birthday of their son.

As with all important events involving the Royal Family, members of the British Crown will gather at Buckingham Palace after the ceremony on Saturday May 6, 2023. A procession will therefore leave from the heart of London to reach the palace, where the Windsors can wave to the crowd from the balcony.

But not everyone will be invited to sit around Charles and Camilla.

Despite the wind of modernity that Charles III wants to blow on the British monarchy, there is no question of making the coronation a family event, it is a state event.

This is the reason why only prominent members of the family who are very active in the Firm will have a place on the balcony.

Prince Harry should therefore not take part in the procession leaving Westminster Abbey at the end of the ceremony, nor appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the traditional salute to the crowd.

Especially since the relations between the neo-Californians and the British royal family have suffered from the very intimate revelations made by the youngest of Charles III and Lady Diana in The Substitute.

KING CHARLES III'S STATE VISIT TO FRANCE POSTPONED DUE TO PROTESTS

The visit of King Charles III to France is postponed "given the announcement of a new national day of action against pension reform", announced the Elysée.

The visit of King Charles III, originally scheduled for Sunday March 26, has been postponed. A press release from the Elysée Palace announces that this decision follows the announcement of a new national day of action against pension reform. “This decision was taken by the French and British governments, after an exchange between the President of the Republic and the King”, indicates the Élysée this Friday, March 24, the day after a large-scale demonstration which upset security. In France. “This state visit will be rescheduled as soon as possible”, indicates the press release which tries to reassure as to the stability of relations between the monarch and the French president. This visit is highly symbolic in particular for King Charles III.

He and the queen consort are due to arrive in Paris on Sunday March 26 for a historic event, a first state visit for the new sovereign and a dinner at the Palace of Versailles. Buckingham Palace feared that social tensions would have an "impact on the logistics" of such a trip, had indicated the Daily Mail. His state visit to Germany, which was to follow that to France, has been maintained, the British Embassy in Paris said.

Speaking this morning on Cnews, Gérald Darmanin had nevertheless affirmed that "we will be ready to welcome the British sovereign in excellent conditions". The Minister of the Interior had announced that a total of 4,000 police and gendarmes were mobilized from Sunday evening in Paris, before detailing the stages of the visit, "in Paris, in the Parisian suburbs and in Bordeaux". Gérald Darmanin had also mentioned a “descent from the Champs-Élysées”. On Monday, the sovereign was to go to the Senate for a speech before French parliamentarians. Gérald Darmanin had finally mentioned the securing of the journeys of the British sovereign and the dinner planned at Versailles, without ever mentioning a possible cancellation.

The dinner party organized with great fanfare for the British monarch and the queen consort at the Palace of Versailles on Monday March 27 turned out to have bad timing. Thursday saw a rebound of demonstrators all over France. Several cities were the scene of violence between demonstrators and police, as well as damage. A mobilization that undoubtedly worried Buckingham Palace.

Cardboard guillotines were seen in particular during the demonstrations which mobilized more than 800,000 people in Paris, according to the CGT, and more than a million people in France.

PAMELA ANDERSON SHOWS UP HER CLAWS

Sex Symbol of the 90s, Pamela Anderson, 55, publishes both a book and a documentary about her less glamorous version of glitter.

For several years, the ex-sex symbol of the nineties has become a bit of a service nerd. She publishes books, campaigns, becomes political. It has just been released on January 31, 2023, indeed, both an uninhibited autobiography Love, Pamela , Ed. Dey Street Books, the French version of which will be released in April, and a punchy documentary (Pamela, a love story, on Netflix) in order "to take control of the narration of the story for the first time".

To deliver her own testimony, the 55-year-old American-Canadian shows herself in a new guise. Exit false eyelashes, smoky eyes, glossy lips and primed look… the Hollywood star agrees to remove her makeup.

Perfectly natural, she opens up like never before, overwhelming with sincerity.

Spotted...at a football game!

Because Pamela, like all true icons, has long been a woman written by and for others, captive body and soul of the imagination and desires of others. A kind of media abduction, almost in the literal sense, which occurs at the end of the 80s, when this Canadian fitness coach attends a football match in Vancouver.

The pretty girl, then 21 years old, suddenly saw her face appear in XXL mode on the giant screen of the stadium and all the TV channels broadcasting the match, spotted in the middle of the crowd by the cameraman responsible for entertaining the spectators. . She was then noticed by the Labatt beer brand.

Quickly coveted by magazines looking for the new playmate that will be snapped up on newsstands, she posed for Playboy in 1989, the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with Hugh Hefner's publication: she would become the most photographed in the magazine's history. For her, this experience is a revelation.

“Doing that first photo shoot gave me that little insight into what it was like to be a sensual woman, she explained to the Sunday Times after the death of the controversial tycoon. My sexuality was mine. possession of my power".

Before adding that he was the only man crossed during his professional career who had really respected her.

"He empowered so many women and broke down walls."

But it is above all her role in Baywatch in Baywatch, which contributes to starifying her, saving lives at all costs, photogenically leaning her double D chest on the victims to be resuscitated.

The hypersexualization of the image of the young Canadian, however, has only just begun and will experience its climax in the mid-1990s, to the point of eventually escaping her. With the sulphurous 1996 film Barb Wire, first. She embodies a mercenary in a black leather bustier, a character born from comic strips and looking like Gothic Lara Croft.

Pamela Anderson is mocked for her acting and reduced to her sometimes naked physical performance, as in other gently erotic TV movies she is shooting at the time. A situation that she experiences in an even more violent way when the famous affair of the sextape breaks out with her husband Tommy Lee, drummer of the group Mötley Crüe.

Terrible childhood trauma

"We were naked all the time and we were filming, we were stupid, but these tapes were not intended for anyone else to see," she told CBS Sunday Morning recently. I still haven't watched them. It was something that bothered me."

Later, another sextape, with her ex Bret Michaels this time, leaked on the Net. The refusal to be confronted with these events has not changed over time.

In Entertainment Weekly, a relative of the actress remained anonymous analyzed:

"In the 90s, Pamela's body was ruled by a judge as public property. There was no doubt the videotape was stolen property, but the court ruled it wasn't. because his body belonged to the world".

"I experienced it as a rape," she recalls in her documentary. The actress, who became the first victim of slut-shaming 2.0, had already experienced the worst several times years before, victim of touching by her babysitter as a child, raped by an adult neighbor when she was 12, then by a gang of seven boys in middle school."

"During these traumatic moments, I was leaving my body and floating in my own world."

It is partly because of all these waking nightmares that Pamela lost confidence in Man and launched herself into the defense of animals, by associating herself in particular with the organization PETA.

"For a long time, I prayed to the whales, with my feet in the ocean, she said in 2014 during the evening marking the creation of the Pamela Anderson Foundation, which campaigns for the defense of animal rights. My only friends until until I have children" (note: two, with Tommy Lee).

Romances and weddings

Still, the Pamela Anderson of the 2000s and then 2010 remains a great lover.

Six marriages in total (one of which lasts twelve days), more or less chaotic passionate relationships, as with the French footballer Adil Rami, whom she leaves accusing him of violence and infidelity. Their tough battles through the media feed the tabloid press. Gone are the days when the blonde let her destiny be dictated.

Above all, Pamela is more than ever a muse: the creator Jacquemus dedicates her, bewitching, in his collection at the end of 2022, Julien Doré invites her in one of his clips. A year ago, she bewitched Broadway by playing Roxie Hart in the famous musical Chicago.

Standing ovation at the key.

THE DESCENT INTO HELL BY PIERRE PALMADE

Following the serious car accident of February 10, 2023, the actor Pierre Palmade was indicted on Friday February 17, 2023 by an investigating judge on the counts of "manslaughter" and "involuntary injuries" resulting in total incapacity of work exceeding three months per driver having used narcotics, all committed in a state of legal recidivism.

Pierre Palmade was already sentenced in 2019 for acquiring drugs. As such, he does not incur 20 years of criminal imprisonment.

No specific memory

In front of the investigators, the comedian admitted to having consumed cocaine and synthetic drugs before taking the wheel. The actor was under the influence of 3-MMC at the time of the accident, a drug often used during “chemsex” practices in which the actor regularly indulged.

"However, he explained that he had no precise memory of the circumstances of the accident," said Jean-Michel Bourlès. The investigation will have to determine why he suddenly and brutally changed lanes to hit the Renault Mégane head-on.

On Sunday February 19, the Paris prosecutor's office also announced that it had opened an investigation into suspicions of possession of pornographic images, following a report from a man posing as one of his acquaintances. The Brigade for the Protection of Minors (BPM) was in charge of the investigation.

After spending nearly 48 hours in police custody, a liberty and detention judge issued house arrest with the wearing of an electronic bracelet.

Pierre Palmade has been sleeping since Friday in the addiction service of the Paul-Brousse hospital in Villejuif (Val-de-Marne). He cannot leave it for the time being and the summons is valid for a period of six months.

The Melun prosecution said it had appealed this decision. A hearing before the investigating chamber of the Paris Court of Appeal will soon have to rule on a possible incarceration.

As for the two passengers who were in his car the evening of the accident, they were both placed under the status of assisted witness. If they are not indicted at this stage, Mohcine E.-A, 33, and Sambou G., 34, are indeed accused of "non-assistance to a person in danger".

Facts

A very serious road accident involved comedian Pierre Palmade on February 10, 2023. The actor was driving his car on the D372, near Villiers-en-Bière (Seine-et-Marne), when he hit an oncoming vehicle. On board, a man, a pregnant woman and a six-year-old child.

Two passengers in the actor's car fled.

The three passengers will be transported to the hospital very seriously injured, the 38-year-old driver is admitted with a vital prognosis and still in a coma.

Her 6-year-old son woke up with a broken jaw that will require several surgeries. As for the driver's sister-in-law, a young woman of 27, she lost the child she was carrying.

She was six and a half months pregnant. Friday, Jean-Michel Bourlès, the public prosecutor of Melun, indicated that the autopsy had not made it possible to establish if this child was born alive. An additional expertise was ordered on this point.

Recognized as a comedian

At the age of 19, he left the bourgeois comfort of Bordeaux – where he was born on March 23, 1968 – to go to Paris. Already, he wrote sketches - Sweet, Salty -, was noticed during the Night of the theater (1987).

His first steps, he took them in 1988 in the FR3 show, La Classe, alongside Michèle Laroque and Muriel Robin, who took him under their wings They became friends and Palmade wrote the following year for Muriel Robin, Cheerleaders hide to die, let her play Tintamarre. His success earned him a nomination for the Molières.

After the decade of the 1980s marked by comedians whose political satires fall under the register of protest buffoonery, Palmade confirms on stage by drawing from everyday life the traits of a comic character and situation. In 1991, he wrote a play for Jacqueline Maillan, Piece mounted.

After many successes in one-man-show (My mother really likes what I do, We know each other?

Come see me on occasion), he triumphs with Michèle Laroque in two shows written with his accomplice Muriel Robin: They love each other (1996) and They loved each other (2001). These shows will be nominated several times for the Molières and the Victoires de la Musique.

He also writes for other artists such as Jean-Marie Bigard, Mimie Mathy and Guy Bedos. He inspires and co-writes in particular all the sketches of Muriel Robin's one-woman-shows. In 1995, he wrote and acted in the play My Sister is a Chic Guy with Dominique Lavanant, and wrote the dialogues for the film Pédale douce (1996).

From 1993 to 2009, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2020 and 2021, he also participated in Les Enfoirés shows.

In 1998, he played the role of the bard Assurancetourix in Asterix and Obelix against Caesar.

In 2001, he released the single J'te flashe, j'te love, written with Jean-Michel Jarre. But, after his show My first goodbyes (2000), his desires are more for comedy: Help, I am 30 years old! (2004), Three Fathers at Home (2004), etc.

Everything seems easy to Pierre Palmade, whose falsely good humor, sometimes grating, is in tune with the times.

At 37, Pierre Palmade decided to “change his life”.

He created a workshop, the Troupe à Palmade, which brought together around thirty talents and thus staged Brice Hillairet and Cédric Cizaire in They play Palmade, on the Point-Virgule stage.

In the meantime, he is writing Fugueuses, a tailor-made comedy for Line Renaud and Muriel Robin and preparing for his return to the Fontaine theater with his troupe in Le Comique, which evokes his unbridled life which will have a sequel with Le Fils du comic. He also finds the time to host on France 3 Made in Palmade, a program that quickly ends for lack of audience.

Homosexuality, chemsex...

Twelve years after his coming out, Pierre Palmade lived his homosexuality badly, to the point of writing during confinement a play on the subject, Assume brothel!, in which he revealed his discomfort.

"The guys I slept with are long gone, leaving me to sort things out on my own. Thanks guys! Can I blame them? I'm not sure."

And tried to assume "I would not like it to become a business. My sexuality does not make my artistic identity, I exist for other things fortunately. It is a question of living this homosexuality well. When we was raised like me, in the 1980s, in a somewhat bourgeois city, it wasn't always easy, but here it is, even if it leaves traces."

In 2020, out of 450,000 targeted controls, one in five was positive for narcotics, mostly young men. This risky behavior is increasingly widespread, despite the strong messages of prevention campaigns.

On the road, one in three fatal accidents in France today is caused by the consumption of narcotics. The most detected substances are cannabis, which alters reflexes, and cocaine, a stimulant.

In 2022, more than 700 people would have died as a result of accidents involving the use of cocaine or cannabis.

Need we remind you that drug trafficking and consumption are prohibited in France ?

REGE-JEAN PAGE

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAN IN THE WORLD

But who is the most handsome man in the world ?

The verdict is in !

If Chris Evans is the sexiest man in the world according to "People", the title of most handsome man in the world has been attributed by science to Regé-Jean Page, 34 years old.

In any case, this is what London plastic surgeon Julian De Silva tells us on Instagram, explaining that the face of the actor, who drew a definitive line in "The Bridgerton Chronicle", is the one that corresponds the most – at 93.65% – the golden ratio of Phi which has measured physical perfection since ancient Greece.

He is closely followed by Chris Hemsworth, Michael B. Jordan (who started directing with Creed III) and Harry Styles.

Dr. Julian De Silva compiled this ranking using the latest computerized mapping techniques.

He explains :

"These brand new computer mapping techniques allow us to solve some of the mysteries of what makes a person physically beautiful and the technology is useful in planning patients' surgery," he said.

"He easily got the top score for his eye spacing and his eye position also scored high, as did his perfectly contoured lips.

The only slightly lower rating he received was for the width and length of his nose."

Perhaps an additional asset for putting on the James Bond tuxedo.

THREE DAYS OF FESTIVITIES FOR THE CORONATION

 OF CHARLES III

The coronation of Charles, 74, will take place eight months after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8 at the age of 96. Buckingham wants to make "this historic event" a moment of celebration, which gives "the opportunity for people to come together".

Buckingham Palace has begun to unveil for the first time the program for the three days of festivities on the occasion of the coronation of King Charles III. The coronation ceremony of Charles III will take place on the morning of May 6, at Westminster Abbey, like the previous coronations of British monarchs for 900 years.

It will, as tradition dictates, be led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, the spiritual leader of the Anglican Church.

“The coronation is a solemn religious service, as well as an occasion for celebration and pageantry,” says Buckingham.

The ceremony "will be forward-looking, while being steeped in tradition and long-standing pageantry." Charles' wife, Camilla, will also be crowned.

Charles III and Camilla will arrive in Westminster from Buckingham Palace in a procession called the 'King's Procession'. After the ceremony, they will return to Buckingham as part of the 'Coronation Procession', for which they will be joined by other members of the Royal Family.

Then the king and queen consort, accompanied by members of the royal family, will appear on the balcony of Buckingham, to greet the crowd.

The next day will be a concert at Windsor Castle, west London, with “international music icons and contemporary stars”.

It will be broadcast on the BBC. Buckingham, however, did not mention the names of the artists who will perform on stage.

Among the audience will be volunteers from charities supported by Charles and Camilla.

A "coronation choir" will also perform a concert, featuring singers from refugee choirs, the public health service, LGBTQ+ and deaf singing groups.

In the evening, iconic locations across the UK will be illuminated.

The population will also be invited on May 7 to participate in the "grand coronation breakfast", neighborhood parties to "celebrate friendship".

"Thousands of events" should take place in the streets, gardens, parks, according to Buckingham.

On Monday, May 8, which will be a public holiday, people will be encouraged to volunteer.

The move aims to "bring people together and create a volunteer movement that will last beyond coronation weekend," the palace said.

But will the royal family be reunited ?

Buckingham did not say in its statement if Harry and his wife Meghan, exiled in California, will be present.

JACKPOT FOR SHAKIRA BY PLAYING WITH

HIS SEPARATION FROM GERARD PIQUE

The singer has been separated from the Spanish footballer for several months. The two former lovers have been squashing each other through the media for months now and it's not the Colombian's last song that is likely to fix things.

On January 12, Shakira released a new song where she violently attacks her ex, Gerard Pique, triggering a huge buzz, which has already brought her a lot of money.

Shakira also collaborated with the Argentinian rapper by singing on her last track where the 45-year-old Colombian delivers, with Shakira Bzrp Music Sessions 53, a real outlet against her former companion, Gerard Piqué.

In the song, she indeed openly attacks the father of her two children, Milan (9 years old) and Sasha (7 years old).

“You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo.

You exchanged a Rolex for a Casio (...) Many hours at the gym, but you should also exercise your brain from time to time, "she says. or "You claim to be a champion , and when I needed you, you gave your worst version […] You left me the mother-in-law for a neighbor, with the press at the door and the debt to the Treasury."

For his part, the footballer responded to the attacks of his ex. The day after the release of this title, Gerard Piqué arrived for a professional meeting in a Twingo, and with a Casio watch on his wrist.

Music is at the top of the most viewed videos on the YouTube platform.

Shakira can smile today. Indeed, according to information from the Spanish channel Telecinco, taken up by Marca media, the economic benefits from the various streaming platforms have already brought in a lot of money for the Colombian.

According to their calculations, she has already received nearly 2.3 million euros for her new song!

These break-up songs paid him a lot of money!

Obviously, the break with Gerard Pique became a source of inspiration for Shakira, who has since released no less than three songs and each one has become a real hit.

But how far will the provocations between Gerard Pique and Shakira go ?

DEATH OF SINGER LISA MARIE PRESLEY

DAUGHTER OF THE ROCK'N'ROLL LEGEND

ELVIS PRESLEY

Singer Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of rock 'n' roll legend Elvis Presley, died Thursday at the age of 54, her family said in a statement. Her mother "Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie," a rep said in a statement, asking to respect the family's privacy. “It is with a heavy heart that I must share devastating news: my dear daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” confirmed her mother Priscilla Presley, in a press release sent to the People site.

The daughter of the "King" was rushed to hospital on Thursday morning, where she was placed in an artificial coma and on life support, after a cardiac arrest, according to the people site TMZ, which relied on anonymous sources. Lisa Marie Presley was "unconscious" when her housekeeper discovered her at her home in the morning in Calabasas, an affluent suburb of Los Angeles, according to the site.

Her ex-husband Danny Keough, who also lives on the property, performed CPR until paramedics arrived and took her to hospital. "She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I know," her mother Priscilla Presley said in a separate statement to People, thanking fans for their "love and prayers."

The announcement of the death of Lisa Marie Presley immediately provoked a wave of saddened reactions from fans and personalities who were friends of the singer. “Our hearts are broken by the sudden and shocking passing of Lisa Marie Presley tonight,” wrote Tom Hanks, actor of the recently released biopic “Elvis”, and his wife Rita Wilson on Instagram. "Lisa my little darling, I'm so sorry. I will miss you but I know I will see you again, ”published John Travolta on the same social network.

"Proud"

The singer was last seen in public on Tuesday, when she attended the Golden Globes ceremony with her mother, where actor Austin Butler received an award for his role in the biopic dedicated to his father, " Elvis".

Austin Butler, whose larger-than-life incarnation of the rock'n'roll legend has been widely acclaimed, had a word with the two women during his onstage speech. "Thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me. Lisa Marie and Priscilla, I love you forever," he said.

Lisa Marie Presley, who said she was "overwhelmed" and "overwhelmed with gratitude", had paid tribute to the film. "I am so proud, and I know my father would have been proud." Very close to her father, who had named his private jet "The Lisa Marie" in her honor, she was only 9 years old when he is dead.

While she followed in his footsteps, releasing three albums during her career, she never achieved the immense success of her father, one of the most famous artists of all time.

Grief

Elvis' only child, Lisa Marie Presley previously controlled Elvis Presley Enterprises, but sold most of its shares to a private equity firm in 2005.

She had, however, retained control of Graceland, the property owned by her father in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was found unconscious in August 1977, before being taken to hospital and his death attributed to a heart attack. Elvis' toxicology reports then revealed elevated drug levels in the rock 'n' roll legend's body.

Lisa Marie Presley also had to fight an addiction to opiates and painkillers, as she revealed in 2019 in a preface to a book on the outbreak of overdoses that has hit the United States for 20 years now.

" I am not perfect. My father was not perfect, no one is perfect,” she wrote. She notably gave birth to actress Riley Keough, who starred in "Mad Max: Fury Road", and had to mourn a son, Benjamin Keough, who killed himself in July 2020, according to sources. American media.

Besides Danny Keough, whom she divorced in 1994, she was also married to Nicolas Cage, Michael Jackson and songwriter Michael Lockwood.

ANDREW TATE THE "KING OF MISOGYNES"

ARRESTED IN ROMANIA

FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND RAPE

Andrew Tate, the self-described " king of toxic masculinity " influencer who came to prominence this week after provoking young activist Greta Thunberg, was arrested in Romania for human trafficking and rape.

His name emerged in his last days due to a skirmish with Greta Thunberg, a Swedish environmental activist. Andrew Tate provoked the young woman on Twitter:

“Please send me your email so I can send you the full list of my car collection and the huge shows of each.”

The response of the interested party was not long in coming: “Yes, please, enlighten me.

The buzz was overwhelming. He could have stopped there but Andrew Tate saw fit to add a layer. The 36-year-old responded to Greta Thunberg with a two-minute video in which we see a pizza delivery box. Fatal error: this pizza would have led the police to him.

And this Thursday, December 29, 2022, it is for another reason that his name ended up in one of the media. The authorities have indeed announced that they have placed the Anglo-American in police custody while he is suspected of human trafficking, rape and of being at the head of a criminal organization. His brother Tristan was also arrested.

Police said they will be detained for 24 hours along with two other Romanian suspects. “The four men appear to have launched a criminal organization with the aim of recruiting, harboring and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content distributed on specialized sites, available in exchange for money,” the prosecutor said.

"They have won a large sum".

Violent and misogynistic

Authorities said they found at least six women who were possibly abused by the suspects. According to the full police statement, taken up by the Romanian media "Adevarul", the victims were recruited after being tricked by the suspects "who made them believe that they were going to start a relationship with them, leaving them to imagine real feelings of love.

They were then taken to and housed in apartment buildings in Ilfov County where they suffered acts of physical violence and mental coercion (through intimidation, constant surveillance, control and invocation of alleged debts). It is added: “With regard to the crime of rape, it was noted that in March 2022, an injured person was forced, twice, by a suspect by the exercise of physical violence and psychological pressure to have sex."

Accusations of extreme gravity that do not date from this week. For years, the masculinist and wealthy entrepreneur has embodied and promoted violence against women, including through rape culture. Last April, the Romanian police had already raided his home, where this former kickboxing champion in the mid-2000s allegedly detained two women against their will.

Tate banned from social media

A candidate for a reality show in 2016, he was removed from the program after the publication of a video in which he was seen hitting a woman. A year later, #MeToo erupts and all-Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein falls under the weight of multiple charges of rape, sexual assault and abuse of power. Andrew Tate, he is illustrated by yet another misogynistic and dangerous remark, affirming that women are responsible for the rapes of which they have been victims.

On Youtube, in a video posted on his channel, he claims that women are "property of men" or gives advice on how to attack them. “You grab it, you slap it, you strangle it and you fuck it”, he says for example.

In an Interview with Fox News last summer, he explained that he had been banned from social networks because the platforms felt threatened by the fact that he affected a large part of the population with his "traditional masculinist ideas", repeating his credo that men suffer in silence and no longer have the right to defend themselves.

According to the BBC, this Anglo-American moved to Romania five years ago to escape prosecution on suspicion of sex crimes.

The influencer who proudly displays his wealth on video explained in one that he chose to move to Romania because Romanian police were less likely to pursue sexual assault allegations.

On The Fellas Podcast, he added that "Western society is degraded and corrupt". His arrest today seems to prove him wrong.

Greta Thunberg reacted to the announcement of her arrest with irony, always with a tweet:

" This is what happens when you don't recycle your pizza boxes ".

BRAD PITT AND INES RAMON HIS NEW GIRLFRIEND CELEBRATE HE'S 59 YEARS

Brad Pitt appeared on the arm of his new companion, this Sunday, December 18, 2022, to blow out his 59 candles.

Hazelnut-colored eyes and luscious lips, Ines de Ramon is director of the jewelry brand Anita Ko Jewelry.

She 32-year-old seems to have fallen in love with the Fight Club star, divorced from Angelina Jolie since 2016.

"They've been dating for a few months," People clarifies. On November 13, the couple was photographed for the first time alongside Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, at a Bono concert at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles.

More than a month later, the two lovebirds make their appearance again getting out of a car, with a relaxed Brad Pitt, wearing a gray top that matches his pants. Beside her, Ines de Ramon donned a beige coat lined with white fur, her hair falling past her shoulders.

The encounter

Back to the beginning of the story. A few months earlier, a source from People revealed that the American actor had "fallen" for the young Ines de Ramon, separated since the beginning of the year from her husband Paul Wesley, star of Vampire Diaries.

Last Thursday, the young woman accompanied her new companion to the evening following the preview of the film Babylon. Brad Pitt would "clearly be very interested in her, given he brought her to her premiere," a fashion industry source close to Ines de Ramon said.

She continued, "Ines said Brad is very nice and they will spend New Year's Eve together."

"It's not serious yet, but he's comfortable and they're having fun together," the source said. Brad Pitt and Ines de Ramon are having a great time together, and their romance isn't official yet.

Brad Pitt, however, seems to have drawn a cross on Emily
Ratajkowski, with whom he was seen a few months ago.

CHARLES III CELEBRATES HIS 74TH YEARS

Seventy four years for the King of England. This Monday, November 14, Charles III is celebrating his birthday with his family and loved ones.

An anniversary that will be special this year since it is the first since he took office as sovereign. Like his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, Charles III will celebrate his birthday twice, with a busy schedule.

Thanks to the decision taken by his ancestor, King George III in 1760, the English sovereign is the only person in the world to have two birthdays in the year. If his real birthday, marking his date of birth, is not celebrated by the rest of the country, he benefits, like his mother before him, from a national holiday to mark his birthday, next June.

This event, named Trooping the Colour, or "Salut aux couleurs" in French, is the official birthday of the British sovereign, and therefore the king's second birthday. Another occasion to celebrate this very special holiday with great pomp.

It is tradition. Like the queen before him, King Charles III will therefore celebrate his birthday twice in order to have a summer date for outdoor festivities.

Of course, festivities still take place on November 14 to properly celebrate the king's 74th birthday. The festivities kicked off at 11 a.m. with a concert by the Household Cavalry Band. At noon, 41 cannons were fired in Green Park in honor of the King. A second 62-gun salute was scheduled for 1 p.m. from the Tower of London.

For the moment, the second date of the birthday of Charles III is not yet known.

LITTLE GUILTY PLEASURES OF CHARLES III

British monarchs enjoy special attention, especially when it comes to the little secrets they try to hide.

With the disappearance of his mother, Prince Charles finally acceded to the British throne. Since his birth, the “trainee” heir has never ceased to be at the heart of everyone's attention. Here are his little guilty pleasures.

The love story between the future heir to the Crown, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles is a perfect example. Curious, His Majesty's subjects were also attentive to their daily habits, idealizing, even fantasizing.

However, as the writer Bertrand Meyer-Stabley revealed in his book Majesté. The reign of Elizabeth II, the habits and gourmet secrets of members of the royal family are not so far from ours.

Thus, the writer affirmed that the queen liked "very sweet coffee with milk, that Prince Philippe liked black coffee with a little sugar, while Charles never drinks coffee".

What about the taste preferences of the new King Charles III. According to this book, the father of princes William and Harry "loves smoked salmon, peach Melba and bread and butter pudding". Dishes much less whimsical than some might imagine.

And to accompany her dishes, Bertrand Meyer-Stabley reveals that the queen preferred champagne and white wines "like Moselle or Sauternes".

His son prefers “white wine, champagne (Bollinger 1975 is his favorite) and Martini”.

ROYALTY ALL ABOUT MEMORIES

OF PRINCE HARRY "THE ALTERNATE"

End of the suspense : we finally know the release of Prince Harry's memoirs, entitled "Spare".

Spare, the long-awaited and dreaded memoir of Prince Harry, will be published early next year, four months before the coronation of King Charles III. It will be released in the UK as well as Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa.

“We are delighted to announce the remarkably personal and emotionally powerful story of Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex,” tweeted publisher Penguin Random House.

Since the announcement of the writing of these memoirs, in July 2021, rumors have been rife about its content: "explosive", with "the effect of a bomb", filled with "shocking revelations"? So far, nothing has leaked.

“As the man I have become”

At the time, Prince Harry issued a statement through his publisher, Penguin Random House, recalls the New York Times: "I write this not as a prince as I was born, but as a man I became ". It announced an "accurate and entirely truthful first-hand account of [his] life" recounting "ups and downs, mistakes, lessons learned", in the hope of "helping to show that no matter where we come, we have more in common than we think”.

The book is described, on the website created for him by the publisher, as an open window on how the prince reacted to the death of his mother, Princess Diana, and how this tragedy affected his life by the following. And to enrich the 400 pages of his book, the husband of Meghan Markle would have asked his friends and ex-girlfriends to testify.

"With its blunt and unflinching honesty, 'Spare' is a landmark work filled with information, revelation, introspection and hard-earned wisdom about love's eternal power over grief," says the editor.

The symbolic title "Spare" or The substitute

Harry and his wife Meghan stunned the monarchy by leaving the royal family with a bang in early 2020 and moving to the United States, California. During a smashing interview in March 2021, the couple accused the royal family of insensitivity and racism.

In addition to the release date, we know the title of the book: Spare. In other words, the "alternate", a reference to Prince Harry's place within the royal family, outside the direct line of succession for the throne. .

We also know the cover of the book, which will be the same regardless of the edition. This is a meaningful photo since it represents Prince Harry as a soldier, reports the media.

The Duke of Sussex is shown in close-up with a “brown t-shirt and leather collar around his neck”. This photo was taken by Ramona Rosales, an American photographer who is not in her first collaboration with the Sussexes since she had already worked with Meghan Markle, 41 years old.

The cover: Private Harry

Prince Harry's attitude and clothes are no coincidence, according to the Daily Telegraph. By representing his profession in the British army as a soldier for nearly 10 years, including two missions in Afghanistan, he presents himself as a strong man, according to the Gala.

Presenting himself as a soldier shows his strength as a man, but above all his strength of character although he no longer has the right to represent the British army following his departure from the royal family. This choice would also be a way of "defying future reprisals from his family, and showing his strength of character", according to our colleagues.

Harry will donate part of the proceeds

Proceeds from the sale of the memoirs will be donated to various charities supported by the Duke of Sussex. “Prince Harry wishes to support certain British charities by donating part of the revenue generated by the sales of the Substitute”, continues the publishing house.

The Duke of Sussex has already donated $1,500,000 to Sentebale, the organization he co-founded with Prince Seeiso in honor of their respective mothers and which helps children and all young people in Lesotho and Botswana affected by AIDS. "Prince Harry will also donate £300,000 to the non-profit organization WellChild, which he has sponsored as a member of the Royal Family for fifteen years," the statement said.

Concerns of the "Firm" and reshuffles

The announcement of the publication of Prince Harry's memoirs aroused a wave of concern, particularly within "La Firme".

Since the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, rumors have swelled that the delay of the book, announced for the end of the year and finally postponed to the beginning of next year, would be due to cuts made in the text. The reason for this postponement would be related to the content since Prince Harry, 38, had a lot to tell and he had a hard time organizing everything.

More aware of the bad timing, the Duke of Sussex would have decided to resume his text after the death of his grandmother. According to a source reported by Page Six magazine, “Harry wants to delete some passages that involve Elizabeth II, out of respect for her. In addition, he wishes to relate his feelings about the death of the queen.

In addition, changes should be made to ensure that nothing is said to damage the image of the bereaved royal family and the new King Charles III, who will be crowned on May 6.

Times journalist Valentine Low, author of the recent book Brokers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown, explained to the American newspaper that "yes, [the release of his book] comes at a delicate moment of transition, yes, people are nervous, yes, it could harm the monarchy.”

TAKING RAKES IT HURT !

BUT FIRST OF ALL, LET'S LEARN LESSONS

We all take a hit in our lives. But instead of moaning about his fate, can't we rather draw positive lessons for later?

There's no point in looking back with bitterness anyway

How not to get ghosted ?

Ah, how unpleasant it is to be ghosted: no more responses to our calls and text messages.

Lourder: what like a vulgar kleenex, in a messy way to make us understand that the relationship is over, that it's dead.

First: do not get hammered in your head. It's dead, it's not coming back.

Second: do not hold a grudge because it is counterproductive and prevents you from moving forward!

Third: ask yourself what was wrong with this relationship so as not to repeat the same mistakes with the next one.

Because artichoke heart or not, we rely on it to meet another handsome boy.

He often came to talk to me when I was with some friends.

He was really nice and funny, and my heart fluttered when I thought of him… a crush, what. I imagined OUF that it was reciprocal, since he spoke to me often.

So when I learned that it was not me who wet his palms and gave him the zizidur, but my best friend, I saw everything red.

For me, it was obviously a great classic: he approached me to try his luck with my best friend ! Horrible ! Monstrous ! I had seen that in a lot of movies and yet I had been fooled, great, twenty out of twenty the human race.

I had been in love with myself. Well, well, it stings on the spot, but nobody can do anything about it, you can't force yourself (well if you can, but it hurts everyone so avoid it).

Myself, sometimes, I put rakes, because I did not have a particular feeling or attraction. Even if I haven't always done it with delicacy and properly (it always makes me so uncomfortable, this kind of situation)

I don't think I'm a bad person though !

A clumsy person, but not a fundamentally bad person.

IN THE ROYAL FAMILY

The death of Queen Elizabeth II brought about changes in the status and titles of members of the royal family.

Credit where credit is due, Prince Charles, Duke of Cornwall and Prince of Wales, became King Charles III.

Even if his coronation will not take place for many months, he very officially becomes the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland but also of the Commonwealth.

This last title is not hereditary but at the Windsor summit on April 20, 2018, the leaders of the Commonwealth countries had acted that on the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the distinction would be passed on to her son Charles. The new sovereign also becomes Duke of Lancaster. Now that Prince Charles is officially King Charles, Camilla will be known as the Queen Consort.

His brother Edward, already Earl of Wessex, could inherit him the title of Duke of Edinburgh, property of Prince Philip until his death in 2021. A royal pact dating from 1999 could suggest this, but the decision is in your hands. of the new British sovereign.

Following Charles in the line of succession to the throne, Charles's eldest son, William, already Duke of Cambridge, also became Duke of Cornwall. He also inherited several Scottish titles: Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and High Steward of Scotland. King Charles III officially named Prince William and Kate Middleton Prince and Princess of Wales, making the Duchess the first to bear that title since the late Princess Diana:

“Today I am proud to name him Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, the country whose title I have had the great privilege of bearing for so much of my life and duty. With Catherine at her side, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will, I am sure, continue to inspire and lead our national debates, helping to put the marginalized in the center of the field where vital help can be given. »

On Instagram, Will and Kate have officially changed their usernames to @princeandprincessofwales. "The Prince and Princess of Wales will approach their roles in the modest and humble way in which they have approached their work before," a royal source told Hello!, adding that Kate "enjoys the history associated with this role, but that 'it's understandable that she wants to look to the future by creating her own path.'

On the side of Harry, the second son of King Charles III – and the late Princess of Wales Lady Diana Spencer – his status is not changing. The prince remains Duke of Sussex, and Earl of Dumbarton, two titles awarded to him by the Queen in 2018 at the time of his marriage to Meghan Markle. In 2021, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that the royal family had decided that their children would not receive HRH (His/Her Royal Highness) titles, nor the security that these titles could have provided by virtue of traditions. On the other hand, their grandfather having become king, Archie, three years old, and Lilibet, one year old, can now be called Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

King Charles also had words for his second son and daughter-in-law during his speech, saying: 

"I also want to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas".

TO THE WHITE HOUSE

Barack and Michelle Obama unveiled their official portraits at the White House on Wednesday.

" Welcome to the house ! By welcoming them, Joe Biden restored, a term later, the custom that all former presidents and their wives are welcomed by their successors at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for this ceremony.

The president, with his wife Jill Biden, recalled at length his eight years serving as vice-president of Barack Obama, recalling the camaraderie that united them.

“We were counting on you. And I'm still counting on you," he said.

"He couldn't have done it without you," he also slipped for Michelle Obama, emphasizing the ties created between the two families.

“You were with me when my son was dying,” the 79-year-old Democrat reminded Barack Obama, who delivered the funeral tribute to Beau Biden, who died of cancer. “You will never realize how much that meant to Jill and me,” Joe Biden said.

The couple then unveiled the paintings, which will now adorn the walls of the White House, and which were made from photographs.

Commissioned by the White House Historical Association, both portraits were painted from photos. Robert McCurdy, who immortalized Barack Obama, explains that he tries to “extend time rather than cut it out like a photograph”. The New York Times reports that the artist is essentially looking for “a more meditative or transcendent moment” than movement. The portrait of Barack Obama shows him standing with his hands in the pockets of a dark suit, a shadow of a smile on his lips, painted in an ultra-realistic way on a white background.

“Presidents are so often airbrushed, they even take on mythical status, especially after you're gone and people forget everything they didn't like about you […] But I want people to remember that Michelle and I, presidents and first ladies are human beings like everyone else. »

On that of Michelle Obama, by Sharon Sprung, the former first lady poses on a sofa in the "Red Room" of the White House, in a light blue evening dress, her gaze straight and a touch of amusement in her expression.

"The little girl that I was, wasn't supposed to live in this house," or have her portrait hanging alongside that of Jacqueline Kennedy, she said.

“What we are looking at […] is the reminder that there is a place for everyone in this country. “, Thus recalled the former First-lady.

Barack and Michelle Obama thus join the gallery of former presidential couples of the United States.

TRUTH OR DISINFORMATION

VLADIMIR PUTIN SICK ?

The state of health of the Russian president has been fueling rumors for many weeks.

According to the weekly Newsweek, a report that was compiled by Washington in late May claims that the Russian president was treated for "advanced stage" cancer before reappearing in the media in April.

The American magazine quotes on condition of anonymity three senior American intelligence officials, "in three different agencies":

one working in the office of the Directorate of National Intelligence (DNI), one in the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and a former Air Force officer.

So far, the leaks have come mainly from British tabloids and not necessarily very reliable ex-spies.

But the latter, even if it emanated from American intelligence, would it not be part of American disinformation?

The quality of this information should therefore be taken with a grain of salt.

At the end of May, Sergei Lavrov, head of diplomacy in Moscow, assured that Vladimir Putin was doing well.

"I do not believe that anyone with all his senses can see in this person (Putin) signs of any illness or ailment", said the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs at the time, underlining the "daily appearances from its leader.

“Everyone feels that their end is near”, believes one of the officials, but another warns that we must not fall into “wishful thinking” (taking our dreams for reality), like the United States were able to do it with Saddam Hussein or Osama Bin Laden.

Will she come ?

This question was on everyone's lips. Queen Elisabeth has been suffering from mobility problems for some time, but her people are eagerly awaiting this popular sovereign who has devoted her entire life to her country.

The 96-year-old sovereign, dressed in a “flashy” sky blue outfit, was accompanied by the Duke of Kent, Colonel of the Scots Guards, one of the elite regiments of the British Royal Guard, who greeted the participants of the annual military parade of the "Hail to the colors".

So decided Elizabeth II.

Around her were crowded Prince Charles, heir to the Crown and his wife Camilla, Prince William, second in line of succession and his wife Kate, Princess Anne, daughter of the Queen, and her husband, as well as the youngest son of Elizabeth II, Edward, and his wife, as well as three cousins ​​of the sovereign. William and Edward's children were also present.

JUDICIARY VICTORY OF JOHNNY DEPP AGAINST AMBER HEARD GUILTY OF DEFAMATION

After six weeks of a trial during which no scabrous details about their toxic relationship were spared, neither the jurors nor the millions of spectators who followed the hearings, broadcast live every day, like episodes of a series , Johnny Depp's lawyers managed to convince the jury. The seven jurors – five men and two women – indeed answered in the affirmative to the question of whether the title and two passages of the tribune, published by the Washington Post in 2018 and signed by Amber Heard, contained remarks defamatory towards Johnny Depp, according to the reading of their decision.

A column published in 2018 in question

The star of the Pirates of the Caribbean saga sued his ex-wife for a forum in which she said she was "a public figure representing domestic violence". Although he is not named, Johnny Depp believed that this media outlet had destroyed his career and his reputation and claimed 50 million dollars.

And to award damages, they also ruled that the author of the declarations had acted out of "real malice". The actress was therefore ordered to pay 15 million dollars in damages to the actor of Pirates of the Caribbean.

However, the jury also awarded Amber Heard $2 million in damages in her own counterclaim, in which she claimed that statements by a controversial lawyer for Johnny Depp - who called the charges violence that she carried against her ex-husband of "hoax" - had harmed her.

"Inexpressible disappointment"

“Devastated”, the star of Aquaman confided his “inexpressible disappointment” just after the verdict. She said she was heartbroken, and it was a step back for women. “The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I am heartbroken that the mountain of evidence is still not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence and sway of my ex-husband, Amber Heard said. I am even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It's a setback. It harkens back to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It pushes back the idea that violence against women should be taken seriously,” she said.

Willingness to appeal

Amber Head wants to appeal the verdict pronounced this Wednesday, May 31, 2022. However, the courts of appeal can only interfere in a verdict if the judge's decisions have seriously undermined the verdict, but it will be difficult to find a fault on this side- there, say specialists relayed by the American press. The other problem is that it is not possible to appeal a finding of fact, such as the finding of the jurors who found that Amber Heard had acted maliciously, that she had lied, that she had defamed.

To be granted an appeal, Heard will therefore have to demonstrate that there were errors in the trial or in the judge's reading of the law.

"Given back his life".

Johnny Depp was absent for the verdict "due to professional commitments made before the trial", according to the ABC television channel, citing sources close to the actor. In a statement to the press, Johnny Depp thanked the jurors for giving him "his life back".

“From the beginning, the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, whatever the outcome. Telling the truth was something I owed to my children and to everyone who supported me unwaveringly. I feel at peace knowing that I have finally accomplished this”.

After all this sordid unpacking on their ex-couple Johnny Depp will he again be able to seduce the spectators and particularly the female public?

Some of his remarks contained in text messages quoted during the trial, in which Johnny Depp notably called his ex-wife a “rotting corpse” and had sworn that she would suffer “total humiliation”, undoubtedly shocked.


Other Hollywood stars, such as Robert Downey Jr for example, have however made a successful comeback after devastating controversies for their careers....

It's an opportunity for the Queen and the entire working royal family, which excludes Harry, Meghan and Prince Andrew, who signed a financial deal to end sexual assault charges, to attend a parade military: the “Trooping colors”. An event that the queen can not miss.

In the evening, more than 2,800 beacons in honor of the Queen will be lit at the Palace and across the UK. This tradition is called the “Platinum Jubilee Beacons”.

Nine bridges spanning the Thames in London will also be illuminated, as will the iconic BT Tower (eleventh tallest skyscraper in London) in the capital, and several English cathedrals. Signals also lit in the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and British Overseas Territories.

The same is true in the 54 Commonwealth capitals on five continents, from the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific to Belize in the Caribbean.

Friday, June 3: high mass

A religious service, to give thanks to Queen Elizabeth II, will be held at Saint Paul's Cathedral this Friday morning. It will be an opportunity to hear the biggest bell in the country ring, for only the ninth time since 1970, its broken mechanism having been repaired in 2021.

Saturday June 4: horse racing and concert

Saturday will be one of the busiest days of the week across the Channel. The Queen is a keen horse racer and she is expected to attend the prestigious Epsom Derby race. The Royal Family are expected at Epsom Racecourse in Surrey from 5.30pm.

In the evening, a big concert will animate Buckingham Palace. 22,000 spectators – including 5,000 key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic – are expected in the courtyard of the Palace to attend the BBC Platinum Party show, broadcast live on the BBC.

On the menu, a 2.5-hour concert with prestigious headliners including Elton John, Diana Ross, Alicia Keys, Nile Rodgers, Craig David and Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. The British representative at Eurovision, Sam Ryder, will also be there.

Sunday June 5: outdoor dining and parade in London

This Sunday will be marked initially by the party in the street. This will begin with a giant “jubilee lunch” in the streets of London. Alfresco dining will be held across the kingdom and millions of Britons are expected.

More than 600 lunches are also planned in Commonwealth countries and the rest of the world, from Canada to Brazil, from New Zealand to Japan and from South Africa to Switzerland.

This platinum jubilee will end with a great festive parade through the streets of London to Buckingham Palace. About 10,000 dancers, actors and musicians will take part in this show, which is supposed to represent the longevity of the reign of Elizabeth II through the upheavals that the country has gone through over the past 70 years.

Then, it will be the British star Ed Sheeran who will close these four days of festivities. He will lead the a cappella performance of the anthem "God save the Queen", in the courtyard of the royal palace.

ROMAN ABRAMOVITCH POISONED IN UKRAINE

ARE WE GOING TO DIE

Roman Abramovich was very scared !.

The Daily Mail reveals that the Russian businessman asked "Are we dying ?" to his team when the first symptoms of poisoning appeared on March 3.

Experts interviewed by the British newspaper believe that the oligarch was poisoned with chloropicrin or very small doses of the Novichok chemical weapon, developed by the Russians.

"The goal was not to kill him." So says Christo Grozev, investigative journalist at Bellingcat, about the recent poisoning of Roman Abramovich.

The Russian oligarch, president of Chelsea FC targeted by European sanctions, has been taking part in peace talks between Ukraine and Russia for several weeks. His role: to mediate between the Russian invader and kyiv, and thus get rid of his pariah status on the international scene.

On March 3, 2022, the oligarch takes part in talks in kyiv. In the hours following the meeting, the businessman feels strange symptoms, also spotted in other members of the Ukrainian delegation. His eyes are red, his hands are pearly and Roman Abramovich ends up going blind for a few hours. “It was a warning,” says Christo Grozev.

“The doses administered were not lethal. It was for the Russian power to warn Roman Abramovich not to take sides with Ukraine. The day after the meeting, Abramovich crossed the Polish border, and still showed symptoms. On March 5, the Russian was hospitalized in Istanbul, Turkey.

On pictures taken in mid-March at Tel Aviv airport in Israel, Roman Abramovich appears very weak. He has completely white hair and looks very skinny.

A representative of the oligarch told the Daily Mail that Roman Abramovich showed symptoms after eating chocolate and drinking water, without giving further details.

The Ukrainian authorities do not confirm the hypothesis of a Russian poisoning attempt.

“There are several theories that are being examined,” it was claimed from the kyiv side. The choice was made, at the time of the poisoning, not to make the situation public in order to protect the victims.

DEPP-HEARD TRIAL WHO IS LYING ?

It is impossible to escape the new legal series of the two terrible children of Hollywood – a trial had already opposed them in London in 2018 –, fully broadcast, live, by the American channel Court TV, as authorized by American law. The best of is repeated in a loop by social networks until the overdose.

Since April 11, the conflict between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard has unleashed passions. While the former filed a $50 million lawsuit against the latter over an article in the Washington Post where she said she was the victim of domestic violence, Amber Heard filed a $100 million countersuit , all leading to an extraordinary trial because of the status of the protagonists, their excesses, and its resonance. The ex-spouses wage a merciless war with sordid revelations.

Amber Heard was still at the helm Tuesday in Fairfax court. And after delivering new prosecution testimony against Johnny Depp, the latter's lawyers proceeded to cross-examination. And it's an understatement to say that she was mistreated… but she didn't flinch.

During this day, Amber Heard was questioned about her alleged injuries. Because if she has repeatedly claimed that Johnny Depp had hit her, especially in the face, she never went to a doctor to have her injuries noted (but she says she has breathing problems because of scars in her nose) . Nor does anyone seem to have ever seen any traces of beatings. In real life, or in a photo… “You should see what it looks like under the makeup“, she replied. If Amber Heard had already admitted having beaten her ex-husband at least once, it was only ever to respond to violence, to defend herself, she continued to support.

Camille Vasquez, one of the actor's lawyers, read a message left by Amber and addressed to Johnny in a "love diary": "I'm sorry, I can go crazy, I'm sorry to have you hurt, like you I can get mean when provoked”.

And when Camille Vasquez claimed that he "isn't the first partner you've assaulted, is he?" “, Ambert Heard denied. What is it about? In 2009, Amber Heard was suspected of punching then-girlfriend Tasya van Ree in the arm at Seattle airport. The police had intervened and Amber had been summoned to court the following day. But no charges were filed. The artist had defended the actress, citing a "minor" and "misinterpreted" incident.

And even today, Amber Heard assures her, “I never assaulted Mr. Depp or anyone with whom I had a romantic relationship, ever. Many times I had to use my body to defend myself, and that included hitting where I could if it allowed me to escape. It meant a swollen face rather than a broken nose. »

The two camps are preparing their weapons without worrying that their increasingly convoluted passes weaken the voice of the victims in general and, beyond that, the MeToo movement. "We ask a victim of domestic violence to be perfect, we scrutinize the smallest corners of his existence, his flaws, his addictions, his sexuality, and we judge him unfit for the status of victim, nuance Yael Mellul, lawyer and specialist in this subject. However, a victim of violence is a person who is doing badly, very badly, often in serious depression, with risky behavior, who may have sunk into alcoholism or drug addiction, on psychotropic drugs. “A definition which, in the end, seems to stick as well to Amber Heard as to Johnny Depp. Worried, the interpreter of Divinidylle, however, has reason to be,

By the end of the trial, in mid-June, the suspense remains at its height.

IN THE UNITED KINGDOM A SPEECH FROM THE THRONE

WITHOUT QUEEN ELIZABETH II

"Historical moment" in the United Kingdom: Prince Charles gave the traditional speech from the throne in Parliament on Tuesday, May 10, in place of his mother Elizabeth II, the queen having given up on the advice of her doctors.

Bringing a new sign of the transition underway for the British monarchy under the effect of the health problems of the nonagenarian sovereign, it was Prince Charles who arrived in Parliament while the anthem “God Save the Queen” sounded. The 73-year-old heir to the crown, in a decorated uniform, then read, on behalf of the Queen, the speech setting out the government's program at the opening of the parliamentary session.

He sat on the throne reserved for the consort, once used by his father Prince Philip, and symbolically smaller than that of the monarch. On her right, the space usually reserved for the sovereign's throne had been left empty. Alongside Charles was also his wife Camilla, 74, as well as his eldest son, Prince William, 39, who was present for the first time. Further proof of a change of generations taking place.

It is only the third time in her 70-year reign that the 96-year-old head of state has missed this solemn appointment of British democracy. Pregnant, she had been absent in 1959 and 1963.

It is also the first time that the Prince of Wales, who has already represented her abroad for several years and is taking a growing place, replaces her. As a symbol, the crown of Elizabeth II was placed on a cushion in front of Prince Charles during the entirety of his speech.

The Queen had long hoped to attend before Buckingham Palace announced on Monday evening that she had "reluctantly decided not to take part in the Speech from the Throne", due to her "episodic mobility problems".

Signs, for the Daily Mail, that the queen “is still really in charge”: “But make no mistake, this is a historic moment for the Crown”.

His absence raises questions about his participation in early June at the platinum jubilee celebrations, marking his 70 years of reign.

ALINA KABAEVA "THE SUPPOSED COMPANION"

BY VLADIMIR PUTIN AFFECTED BY 

INTERNATIONAL SANCTIONS

She is part of a new list of personalities threatened with an EU entry ban and an asset freeze, as part of a sixth package of European sanctions currently under discussion, in response to the war in Ukraine. Alina Kabaeva, gymnastics champion is indeed at the heart of geopolitical news. The one who is nicknamed "the most flexible woman in Russia" has had an affair with the Russian dictator since 2006.

They would even have several children together. The liaison rumors had, however, been publicly brushed aside by Vladimir Putin in April 2008 during a press conference:

"I've always had a bad opinion of brats who plant their erotic fantasies in other people's private lives."

Still, Alina Kabaeva suddenly became very rich, just like her family.

She also became a member of Vladimir Putin's party, before heading the Board of Directors of the largest Russian media group. It is therefore surprising to discover that, in this context of international sanctions, Alina Kabaeva escapes it.

While Putin's ex-wife and Putin's daughters are on the international sanctions list, the young woman was not there. One way, according to Paris Match, to avoid an escalation between Russia and the United States from the start. But still according to the Paris Match survey "she is not only very close to Vladimir Putin, but she is also an essential link in his chain of power, since she is at the head of the Board of Directors of the largest Russian propaganda group »

Brussels therefore offered to sanction former Russian gymnast Alina Kabaeva.

TRIBUTE TO REGINE "QUEEN OF THE NIGHT"

Long queen of Parisian nights, popular singer and businesswoman, Régine, who died on Sunday at the age of 92, was known to the public for songs like "La grande Zoa", "Azzurro", "Les p'tits papers” or “Patchouli Chinchilla”. Big names in French song, such as Charles Aznavour or Barbara, have signed hits for this pragmatic, melancholy and humorous fighter, with a bewitching and slightly scratchy voice.

Other authors and composers wrote for Régine, including Emil Stern, Eddy Marnay, Francis Lai, Jean Cau, Jean-Loup Dabadie, Michel Grisolia, Charles Level, Françoise Sagan, Serge Lama, Romano Musumarra, Françoise Dorin, Didier Barbelivien, Michel Leeb and Patrick Modiano.

In 1967, she received the Pierre-Brive Consecration prize from the Charles-Cros Academy, at the same time as Jacques Dutronc. She lost her father the same year.

Making her film debut in 1962, Régine played or appeared in a few films, notably Le Train (1973), Les Ripoux (1984) and Grosse Fatigue (1993).

Régine was born in Belgium at number 9 rue Bara in Anderlecht, then in the province of Brabant. Her parents, who lived in Argentina for eight years, are Polish Ashkenazi Jews. His younger brother, later known as Maurice Bidermann, a future industrialist in textiles and clothing, was born in the same town in 1932.

The Zylberberg family emigrated to Paris in 1932 after their father Joseph lost the family bakery to poker in Anderlecht. Her mother returned to South America, she and her brother Maurice were then placed in different pensions, then found refuge during the Second World War in various cities such as Lyon and Aix-en-Provence: she was then baptized Catholic. It was in Aix-en-Provence that her passion for singing and her vocation for parties were born.

Little Régine spends whole nights waiting for her father, who plays at the Casino d'Aix-en-Provence, thinking about who she could become. She joins a shelter for the elderly in Lyon, where she falls in love with Claude, the son of the family, nephew of the chief rabbi of Lyon, Bernard Schonberg who, at the time of the marriage proposal, is arrested by the Gestapo and dies assassinated in deportation.

At the Liberation, his father opened a Parisian café, La Lumière de Belleville, then asked him to take care of it. She discovered American balls, jazz, bebop and other dances which became her passion. A friend entrusted him with running a nightclub in the center of Paris, “le Whiskey à gogo”. She sometimes enjoys dancing there with a full glass on her head, but prides herself on never drinking alcohol.

In 1956, she opened her first nightclub, "Chez Régine", in the Latin Quarter. She continues with the "New Jimmy's", in Montparnasse, where we dance frenzied twists. “Time spent sleeping is time wasted,” she said.

Then will follow New York and Monaco, Brazil, Malaysia... Régine will manage a total of twenty clubs frequented in particular by Andy Warhol, Liza Minelli, the Rothschilds or the Kennedys.

She discovered the music hall in the 1960s. After passing through the Olympia in Paris, she sang at Carnegie Hall in New York in 1969, becoming - notably with Edith Piaf - one of the rare French women to have conquered the America. At the same time, with her second husband, businessman Roger Choukroun, who married in 1969, she continued to expand her businesses. In particular, it creates a membership card giving access to all its clubs around the world. Up to 20,000 people paid dearly for this card in the 1980s.

The couple invests in hotels, restaurants, launches clothing lines, perfumes, sponsors luxury cruises... Régine knows how to mobilize "celebrities" for causes that are important to her, such as the fight against drugs, launching the association "SOS Drugs International". In 2008, her "friend", President Nicolas Sarkozy, whom she accompanied on a trip to Israel, elevated her to the rank of officer of the Legion of Honor. Ironically, a search in 1996 caused the closure of the "Palace", a legendary club that she had owned for four years, after the discovery of narcotics. In 2004, she separated from most of her clubs. And divorce her husband.

Two years later, she lost her only son, the journalist Lionel Rotcajg, born from a first marriage. “I am an exhibitionist. But I have always been unhappy with dignity, ”she says, careful not to spread her pain in the public square. In 2009, she had to sell her "Chez Régine" nightclub near the Champs-Élysées, a long-time unmissable meeting place for Parisian golden youth. The one who said she spends a fortune every day then claims to be “ruined”. This does not prevent him from multiplying talk shows and concerts.

At 86, wrapped in her legendary boa, she was still singing in 2016 at the Folies-Bergères "I will survive", a cover of Gloria Gaynor's hit.

JOHNNY DEPP AGAINST AMBER HEARD DOMESTIC ABUSE AND PERSONALITY DISORDER

It has now been two weeks since Johnny Depp and Amber Heard engaged in a new legal standoff in Virginia. Six years after their breakup, the ex-couple continues to tear each other apart over accusations of domestic violence.

The defamation lawsuit between Amber Heard and her ex-husband Johnny Depp continues in the United States, in the state of Virginia. Tuesday, April 26, this time it was the testimony of a psychologist, hired by the actor's lawyers, who drew attention. Shannon Curry, a clinical and forensic psychologist, presented a surprising diagnosis to the bar: according to her, Amber Heard suffered from personality disorders.

The expert indicated that people with the disorders observed in the actress "can react violently", adding that they "often have abusive behavior towards their partners". The clinician reported that in a test she conducted during her analysis, Amber Heard had "grossly exaggerated" any post-traumatic stress symptoms she may have suffered from as a result of alleged domestic abuse.

The actress' lawyers sought to discredit this testimony, arguing that the psychologist had been hired by the opposing party. To which the latter replied: "I report scientific facts regardless of what they tell us."

An actor who has lost everything

During his court testimony last week, Johnny Depp denied ever hitting Amber Heard or any other woman in his life. The star of the films "Pirates of the Caribbean"" has several times indicated that Amber Heard was, on the contrary, the one who, in their couple, gave the blows Married from 2016 to 2018, the former spouses accuse each other of defamation during this trial, very followed and partly retransmitted on the American news channels.

In a column published in 2018 in the "Washington Post", Amber Heard did not mention Johnny Depp by name, but she mentioned the accusations of domestic violence that she had brought against her husband in 2016. Last week the ex-companion of Vanessa Paradis, father of Lily-Rose and Jack (22 and 20 years old), had assured that he had lost "everything" because of these accusations of violence, starting with his role in the saga "Fantastic Beasts". He is claiming $50 million in damages, against which Amber Heard also filed a complaint demanding $100 million in compensation, claiming that Johnny Depp had subjected him to "permanent physical violence and abuse".

Johnny Depp has already lost his defamation lawsuit – highly publicized – against the English tabloid “The Sun”, which accused him of domestic violence, in November 2020.

REVIVRE LA DEMANDE EN MARIAGE DE JENNIFER LOPEZ PAR BEN AFFLECK

Jennifer Lopez aime à se confier sur son histoire d’amour avec Ben Affleck. La star, désormais fiancée pour la deuxième fois avec l’acteur, a raconté dans la dernière newsletter envoyée par son site officiel, comment la demande en mariage de son compagnon s’était déroulée . La chanteuse, qui qualifie leur couple de «deuxième chance donnée à l’amour», après leur rupture au début des années 2000 , explique que «son plus grand rêve est devenu réalité».

«Samedi soir, à l’endroit que je préfère au monde (un bon bain moussant), mon magnifique amour a mis un genou à terre et m’a demandée en mariage. J’étais totalement prise au dépourvu et je l’ai juste regardé dans les yeux en souriant et en pleurant, essayant tant bien que mal de réaliser qu’après 20 ans, cela se produit à nouveau, j’étais réellement sans voix», écrit-t-elle. «Est-ce que c’est un oui ?», lui a demandé Ben Affleck. «J’ai dit OUI, bien sûr que c’est un OUI», a-t-elle répondu.

« Incroyablement heureuse»

L’interprète de «Jenny from the block» continue son récit en expliquant avoir eu le plus grand des sourires et «des larmes coulant sur (son) visage». «Je me sentais incroyablement heureuse». Et alors que la diva de 52 ans est parfois réputée pour ses goûts extravagants, elle reconnaît ici que «ce n'était rien d'extraordinaire, mais c'était la chose la plus romantique que j'aurais pu imaginer... juste un moment de calme un samedi soir à la maison, deux personnes se promettant d'être toujours là l'une pour l'autre». J-Lo estime que son couple est formé par «deux personnes très chanceuses qui ont une deuxième chance pour vivre le véritable amour». Quant à sa bague de fiançailles de couleur verte, elle indique «que cette couleur (lui) a toujours porté chance et continuera à jamais».

Ben Affleck avait demandé sa belle en mariage une première fois en 2002 pour annoncer deux ans plus tard leur rupture. Tous deux ont ensuite respectivement fondé leur famille auprès de Jennifer Garner et de Marc Anthony, avant de se retrouver en 2021.

 Ben Affleck et Jennifer Lopez viennent par ailleurs de s’offrir un nid d'amour à Los Angeles pour 55 millions de dollars.

POURQUOI EMMANUEL MACRON 

PRESIDENT ET CANDIDAT  SE MONTRE-T-IL

EN HOODIE NOIR ET JEAN ?

Emmanuel Macron est apparu sur des photos en tenue décontractée et mal rasé, ce qui est très inhabituel pour le président de la République française.

Pour quels objectifs ?

Le look du président de la République, mal rasé, portant un hoodie noir et un jean, a suscité de nombreux commentaires sur les réseaux sociaux. Les photos, prises dimanche, ont été publiées lundi sur le compte Instagram de sa photographe officielle, Soazig de la Moissonnière. 

Elle y écrit : « Fin de soirée, salon doré, Élysée, Emmanuel Macron lors d’appels internationaux. » D'aucuns crient à la mise en scène lui reprochant notamment de vouloir ressembler au président ukrainien Volodymyr Zelensky, toujours vêtu de simples t-shirts et hoodies, et qui s’attire les commentaires favorables de l’opinion publique du monde entier depuis le début de l’invasion de l’Ukraine par la Russie.

« Mais on ne peut pas comparer, ils ne sont vraiment pas dans la même situation », rappelle Elizabeth Pineau, journaliste politique à l’agence Reuters et autrice du livre Le Vestiaire des politiques.

Un hoodie militaire

Et attention, rien n’a été laissé au hasard. Car le hoodie que porte le président Emmanuel Macron est celui de l’armée française. On y voit le sigle CPA 10, qui est le commando de parachutistes numéro 10, une unité d’élite située sur une base aérienne près d’Orléans.

« Le vêtement n’est pas anodin, c’est celui de l’armée française. Le président est aussi le chef des armées, et nous sommes en temps de guerre. Le vêtement est utilisé comme outil de communication, et on en a ici un bel exemple, car en plus, nous sommes en campagne électorale en France, et Emmanuel Macron est candidat », explique Elizabeth Pineau, journaliste politique.

Emmanuel Macron y apparaît  comme un président qui travaille sept jours sur sept. C’est le week-end, mais on voit qu’il n’a pas eu le temps de se raser, de se coiffer. Il montre qu’il travaille sans relâche, prêt à tout pour régler les conflits et dénouer la crise en Ukraine.

Il y a le président qui travaille jour et nuit, mal rasé, mais aussi il rappelle qu’il a 44 ans, qu’il est jeune et qu’il porte des hoodies confortables comme tout le monde. Mais le sien est militaire parce qu’il est le chef des armées. C’est de la communication politique.

Pour Stéphane Le Duc, le contraste est d’autant plus saisissant qu’Emmanuel Macron a toujours eu une allure très soignée. « Il est toujours impeccable, très élégant, de style classique. Les costumes sombres bien coupés. Il incarne une certaine perception qu’on a de la France d’un point de vue mode. »

Il pense cependant que ces images lui donnent un vrai coup de jeune. « Cette allure sportive le rajeunit. On le voit dans l’action, les dossiers sous le bras, avec un hoodie qui est le vêtement par excellence de la génération Z. Ça casse son image figée et ça lui va bien », pense Stéphane Le Duc.

Elizabeth Pineau remarque qu’entre son entrée en fonction en 2017 et 2022, le visage d’Emmanuel Macron a beaucoup changé. « En début de quinquennat, Emmanuel Macron ne voulait pas paraître trop jeune, car on pouvait ne pas le prendre au sérieux. On l’a vu de très rares fois en tenue plus décontractée, seulement quand il était en vacances.

Depuis cinq ans, il a pris des rides, des cheveux blancs, il est marqué par le poids de la fonction et les nuits blanches, et ça lui sert. », conclut la journaliste Elizabeth Pineau.

MYLENE FARMER  SUBLIME

EN ROBE TRANSPARENTE A 60 ANS

Mylène Farmer a toujours été très discrète sur sa vie privée.

Loin de vouloir se vanter de sa popularité, la chanteuse de 60 ans se confiait récemment sur son statut dans les colonnes du dernier numéro de Gala.

« Il me semble que la célébrité devrait être le reflet de la reconnaissance d’une œuvre, d’une action, par le public.

Pas un culte de la personnalité !.

Aujourd’hui, on confond la popularité et la célébrité.

Je préfère continuer à cheminer pour une reconnaissance de mon travail », déclarait l’interprète du titre « Pourvu qu’elles soient douces ».

Si la compagne de Benoît di Sabatino a accepté de se livrer à nos confrères, celle-ci s’est aussi prêtée au jeu du fameux shooting photo.

Des images qui n’ont pas manqué de faire sensation auprès des fidèles lecteurs du magazine.

Toujours aussi sexy, la jolie rousse s’est affichée dans une sublime robe transparente sous laquelle elle arborait une lingerie noire.

 Des clichés que vous pouvez notamment retrouver sur la page Instagram officielle de Gala.

En outre, Mylène Farmer a aussi joué les femmes fatales en choisissant d’enfiler un corset noir au-dessus d’un blazer et d’une paire de bas résille.

Les journalistes du magazine affirment qu’aucune des photos n’a été retouchée.

« Après notre shooting, nous avons reçu votre sélection de photos. Nous les croyions retouchées, elles ne l’étaient pas. Bluffant » , comme le rapporte Voici.

LE CHANTEUR PHIL COLLINS

TRES AFFAIBLI EN CONCERT

Le mardi 8 mars 2022, c’est appuyé sur une canne que Phil Collins est apparu sur scène à l’occasion d’un concert à Berlin avec son groupe Genesis.

Visiblement très amaigri, le chanteur qui, selon Voici, souffrirait notamment d’une pancréatite, de diabète et de problèmes vertébraux, a été contraint de rester assis durant toute la durée de l’événement.

Des photos saisissantes ont bouleversé les fans du chanteur.

« Mes vertèbres ont écrasé ma moelle épinière »

« On peut dire que je suis en quelque sorte handicapé, ce qui est très frustrant », confiait le chanteur au micro de la BBC en septembre dernier.

Et pour cause, batteur hors pair, l’interprète de Against All Odds est aujourd’hui dans l’incapacité de s’adonner à sa passion. « J’adorerais pouvoir jouer avec mon fils. J’adorerais ça, mais je peux à peine tenir une baguette avec cette main », soufflait-il.

« Mes vertèbres ont écrasé ma moelle épinière (…) Je ne peux même plus tenir les baguettes correctement sans que cela soit douloureux », concluait-il alors, dépité.

MORT DE JEAN-PIERRE PERNAUT ANCIEN PRESENTATEUR DU 13H DE TF1


Il était la voix des régions, le visage des territoires.

Jean-Pierre Pernaut, l'ancien présentateur du 13H de TF1, est mort à l'âge de 71 ans. L'annonce a été faite à l'AFP par Muriel Belgy, l'agente de l'épouse du journaliste, l'ex-Miss France et animatrice télé Nathalie Marquay-Pernaut. « Le père de Tom, Lou, Olivier et Julien est décédé des suites de son cancer du poumon » mercredi après-midi, a-t-elle déclaré.

Le 23 novembre dernier, le présentateur de 71 ans avait annoncé être atteint d'un cancer des poumons, après avoir déjà vaincu un cancer de la prostate. Il était depuis discret sur son état de santé. Il avait seulement indiqué à nos confrères du Parisien « qu'il se reposait comme le lui préconisait son médecin ».

Mi-décembre dernier, le présentateur de 71 ans avait déclaré dans son émission Jean-Pierre & Vous devoir s'éloigner de l'antenne de LCI afin de se reposer. Quelques semaines plus tard, Nathalie Marquay son épouse, avait annoncé sur le plateau de Cyril Hanouna que Jean-Pierre Pernaut avait été victime de quatre mini AVC depuis le début de l'année.

TF1 fait part de son "immense douleur"

Dans la foulée de l'annonce de sa mort, la chaîne TF1 a fait part de son « immense douleur », dans un communiqué. Jean-Pierre Pernaut « a incarné l'édition du journal de 13H de TF1 pendant plus de trente ans, une longévité inégalée, récompensée d'une fidélité sans faille du public. En cela, il faisait partie de la famille de tous les Français », a souligné TF1.

Pendant 33 ans, Jean-Pierre Pernaut s'est en effet imposé comme le roi de l'info de la mi-journée, avec une formule axée sur la proximité. Il avait cependant décidé de se retirer du JT, le 18 décembre 2020, alors qu'il était au plus haut de ses audiences et de sa popularité. Ce dernier journal présenté par « JPP » avait rassemblé plus de 8,1 millions de téléspectateurs, son record d'audience depuis août 2007.

Patrimoine, vie locale et territoires

« La révolution du 13h, c’est qu’on a été les premiers à vouloir faire un journal destiné à ceux qui le regardaient et à créer un réseau très solide de correspondants en régions, et on a pris beaucoup d’avance », disait Jean-Pierre Pernaut.

Artisans, marchés et villages étaient au cœur de son JT. Une patte Pernaut qui lui a permis à de nombreuses reprises d’être considéré comme le présentateur préféré des Français. « Jean-Pierre c’est le numéro 1 », pouvait-on entendre dans la bouche d’une fan, lors d’un reportage pour son dernier JT. Preuve de sa popularité.

Livres, théâtre et sport

La vraie vie, celle des gens qui regardent le JT, Jean-Pierre Pernaut l’a déclinée dans plusieurs livres dans lesquels il parle artisanat, cuisine locale ou des fêtes locales. Dans son dernier ouvrage en date, 33 ans avec vous, il revenait sur son expérience du journalisme.

Écrivain donc, il a également participé à la conception d’une pièce de théâtre, Piège à Matignon qui raconte l’impact des rumeurs propagées sur internet dans la vie d’un homme politique.

Amoureux du sport, de hockey sur gazon et notamment de courses automobiles, il a participé plusieurs fois au Trophée Andros, course de voitures sur glace.

Le septuagénaire était resté actif sur "JPP TV", une plateforme en ligne pour proposer des sujets régionaux créés par TF1, et présenter sur la chaîne d'info LCI une émission hebdomadaire baptisée « Jean-Pierre et vous ».

 Il avait également créé en 2021 un magazine papier, baptisé « Au cœur des régions ».

LA PHOTO OFFICIELLE D' ELISABETH II

POUR LE JUBILE DE PLATINE

Pour célébrer les 70 ans de règne d’Elizabeth II, Buckingham Palace a prévu quatre jours dont deux fériés, avec des événements publics à partir du 2 juin, date anniversaire du couronnement en 1953 à l’abbaye de Westminster.

Mais ce dimanche 6 février 2022, jour J. du 70e anniversaire de son accession au trône britannique, suite au décès dans son sommeil de son père, le roi George VI , Buckingham Palace a dévoilé la photo officielle qui lance l’année du Jubilé de platine de la souveraine. On la découvre très souriante, en plein travail.

Ce cliché, réalisé quelques jours auparavant, le mercredi 2 février, la montre, vêtue d’une robe chinée vert pâle et blanche sur laquelle elle a épinglé deux broches en diamants représentant des feuilles de lierre -un cadeau de sa mère pour ses 21 ans-, dans un salon de son château de Sandringham.

Assise dans un confortable fauteuil, le dos appuyé contre des coussins, elle se trouve devant une table sur laquelle sont posés des papiers extraits de sa «boîte rouge» ouverte à côté.

C’est par ce contenant que, chaque jour, lui sont communiqués les documents d'Etat nécessitant sa signature et la sanction royale, ainsi que d’autres l’informant d’événements au Parlement et de questions d'outre-mer et du Commonwealth, a précisé le Palais. Derrière elle, sur une petite table, un portrait de George VI avec son chien évoque ce père tant aimé auquel elle a succédé

Elle aurait pu s’afficher en «vraie reine» pour l’imaginaire collectif, coiffée de sa couronne ou de l’un de ses somptueux diadèmes. Au faste, la reine Elizabeth II a préféré l’action.

NOUVEAU VOL A MAIN ARMEE D'UN BOULEDOGUE FRANCAIS TOUCHANT STARS ET ANONYMES

Les vols de Bouledogues Français se multiplient et sont de plus en plus violents. Leurs auteurs n’hésitent pas à utiliser des armes à feu pour menacer les propriétaires. C’est ce qui s’est passé le weekend dernier en Californie, dernier fait en date d’une tendance qui touche aussi les célébrités.

De New York à Los Angeles, de Miami à Chicago, les vols visant cette race canine se multiplient aux Etats-Unis.

Petit, donc facile à saisir et à emporter, un bouledogue français se revend des milliers de dollars au marché noir.

Normal, c'est le chien des stars

Leonardo DiCaprio, Reese Witherspoon ou encore Chrissy Teigen figurent parmi la longue liste de propriétaires célèbres. La demande est plus forte que jamais, mais ces chiens ne sont pas assez nombreux, car les portées sont généralement réduites.

La victime la plus célèbre est Lady Gaga. L'an dernier, des hommes armés ont enlevé deux de ses « French bulldogs » n'hésitant pas à ouvrir le feu, blessant l'employé chargé de les promener en mars 2021. La chanteuse a offert une récompense de 500 000 dollars. Finalement Koji et Gustav ont fini par être retrouvés sains et saufs.

Samedi dernier, une jeune femme et sa mère ont été attaquées par un groupe d’individus armés qui ont enlevé leur chien à Castro Valley, ville californienne située à une trentaine de kilomètres de San Francisco. Le canidé en question s’appelle Tito et est un Bouledogue Français, rapportait Newsweek le 16 janvier.

L’agression a eu lieu à 17h30 locales, précise le communiqué du bureau du shérif du comté d’Alameda. 4 ou 5 personnes se trouvaient à bord d’un crossover qui s’est arrêté au niveau des victimes. 3 d’entre eux tenaient des armes à feu. Ils se sont emparés du quadrupède et d’un sac à main contenant un portefeuille et des clés, avant de prendre la fuite.

Ils sont revenus plus tard, durant la nuit, chez cette même famille pour voler une voiture garée devant le domicile. D’après les forces de l’ordre, le véhicule utilisé par les ravisseurs est volé et est impliqué dans plusieurs autres cambriolages à main armée. Le bureau du shérif poursuit son enquête et espère retrouver Tito au plus vite, pour le remettre à ses propriétaires.

C’est devenu un phénomène de plus en plus préoccupant aux Etats-Unis. Le recours à la violence étant un phénomène nouveau et inquiétant .

« Il m'a braqué son pistolet dans la figure »

Plus au nord, à Oakland, une habitante du nomMarieke Bayens a vécu un traumatisme similaire à Oakland, tandis qu'elle promenait Merlyn, que lui avait confié une amie. Elle s’est retrouvée avec un pistolet contre la figure. L'agression s'est produite en pleine rue, le 26 novembre à 18h00. « J'attendais que Merlyn ait terminé de faire ses besoins quand j'ai vu deux personnes s'approcher. D'abord je ne me suis pas méfiée car ils avaient un masque comme tout le monde, mais j'ai remarqué qu'ils portaient des gants gris, j'ai trouvé cela bizarre », relate la jeune femme « En un instant l'un s'est planté devant moi, en me braquant son pistolet dans la figure. Il m'a lancé : 'Donne-moi le chien !' », poursuit-elle. « L'autre avait déjà saisi au sol Merlyn et, comme je ne répondais pas à celui qui tenait l'arme, il m'a arraché la laisse des mains. Ils ont couru à leur voiture et pris la fuite en fonçant dans une rue à contresens ».

Plus récemment, fin décembre, un Bouledogue Français de 8 ans répondant au nom de Luca avait été arraché des bras de Robert Marinelli à quelques pas de Sunset Boulevard. L’homme avait reçu des coups, avant d’être traîné par le véhicule des assaillants

Il y a un an, c’était une Sarah Vorhaus au visage couvert de bleus et de bosses qui relatait le vol brutal de Chloe, sa jeune femelle Bouledogue Français de 5 mois, à San Francisco.

Autorités et experts appellent à la vigilance

Autorités et spécialistes invitent donc les maîtres à se montrer vigilants face à cette vague d’enlèvements. Ils appellent les propriétaires qui n’ont pas fait pucer leurs chiens à le faire, à leur faire porter un collier GPS et à sécuriser les issues du domicile, entre autres précautions.

Ils recommandent également de s’abstenir de publier des photos « facilement géo-localisables » de son animal de compagnie sur les réseaux sociaux.

ACCUSE POUR AGRESSION SEXUELLE

LE PRINCE ANDREW BIENTOT DEVANT LA JUSTICE

Une annonce qui risque de faire des remous à Buckingham...Un juge de New York a validé mercredi la plainte d'une femme américaine contre le prince Andrew pour agressions sexuelles en 2001 quand elle avait 17 ans, malgré une demande de rejet du deuxième fils de la reine d'Angleterre.Dans sa décision, le juge Lewis Kaplan estime que la demande de rejet de cette plainte civile, déposée à l'été 2021 par Virginia Giuffre, l'une des victimes des crimes sexuels du financier américain Jeffrey Epstein, doit être « refusée à tous égards ».

Procès au civil

Le prince, 61 ans, est embarrassé depuis des années par ses liens avec Jeffrey Epstein, mort en prison en 2019, et son ancienne compagne Ghislaine Maxwell.

La défense soutenait le rejet de cette plainte au motif que Virginia Giuffre avait signé en 2009 un accord avec le financier américain pour ne pas le poursuivre, ainsi que « d'autres accusés potentiels » . Un argumentaire refusé par le juge, dans sa décision datée de mardi mais rendue publique mercredi.

Le prince n'est pas poursuivi au pénal dans cette affaire et a toujours vigoureusement rejeté les accusations de Virginia Giuffre. Si tous les recours d'Andrew échouent, un procès au civil pourrait se tenir « entre septembre et décembre » 2022, avait dit à l'automne 2021 le juge Kaplan.

Agressée sexuellement à trois reprises

Âgée de 38 ans, cette femme affirme qu'Andrew l'a agressée sexuellement à trois reprises en 2001 - lorsqu'elle avait 17 ans et s'appelait Virginia Roberts - à Londres, New York et aux îles Vierges américaines. C'est là que résidait un couple d'amis du prince: le multimillionnaire américain Jeffrey Epstein, qui s'est suicidé en prison en 2019, à 66 ans, avant son procès pour crimes sexuels, et la mondaine britannique Ghislaine Maxwell 60 ans, incarcérée à New York depuis 2020 et jugée coupable le 29 décembre de trafic sexuel de mineures au profit d'Epstein entre 1994 et 2004

Une vilaine affaire de mœurs.

L'ADIEU AUX FRERES BOGDANOFF


Les funérailles d’Igor et Grichka Bogdanoff, disparus des suites du Covid-19, avaient lieu ce 10 janvier en l'église de la Madeleine, à Paris. Cyril Hanouna, Luc Ferry, Julien Lepers et d’autres personnalités étaient venus leur rendre un dernier hommage, accompagnés de nombreux anonymes, souvent nostalgiques des années Temps X.

Cet édifice connu a accueilli nombre obsèques, souvent grandioses, d’artistes : Frédéric Chopin le premier en 1849, puis Édith Piaf, Thierry Le Luron, Charles Trenet, Henri Salvador, jusqu’à Johnny Hallyday en 2017.

À 14h45 arrivent la famille et les proches. D’abord l’écrivaine Amélie de Bourbon-Parme, mariée à Igor Bogdanoff de 2009 à 2018, avec lequel elle a eu deux garçons, Alexandre et Constantin, 10 et 7 ans, qui s’agrippent à son bras, apeurés par cet amas de curieux.

La comtesse Ludmilla d'Oultremont, la première épouse d’Igor, et Julie Jardon, sa dernière compagne, sont également présentes.

On aperçoit aussi quelques visages connus : l’animateur Cyril Hanouna, l’essayiste Raphaël Enthoven, le présentateur Julien Lepers, l’ancien acheteur d’Affaire Conclue Pierre-Jean Chalençon…

Le jet-setteur Massimo Gargia, habituellement si volubile, se fait discret. Tout comme l'ancien ministre de l’Éducation nationale, Luc Ferry, l’un des fidèles amis des Bogdanoff

« Dans l’univers, rien n’est impossible », citation chère aux deux frères. Paradoxalement, leur passion pour les sciences ne les avait pas empêchés de se rapprocher de la religion. Les différentes homélies, prononcées par des proches dans un grand silence, font référence à leur carrière :

« Votre disparition est un Big Bang. »

MEME LIBEREE LA BATAILLE CONTINUE

 POUR BRITNEY SPEARS

Britney libérée, Britney vengée ?

 L’année 2021 aura marqué un tournant majeur dans la longue bataille menée par l’interprète de Baby One More Time pour se libérer de la tutelle de son père. Le témoignage-choc de 23 minutes livré par une Britney Spears « déprimée » et « traumatisée » devant le tribunal de Los Angeles en juin dernier a accéléré l’effondrement de sa tutelle, qui a été levée officiellement en novembre.

En Juillet 2021 à la suite du vibrant plaidoyer de la star pop, la société Bessemer Trust quitte la tutelle afin de respecter les vœux de cette dernière. Sam Ingham, avocat nommé par la cour et qui aura représenté Britney Spears pendant sa tutelle, cède sa place à un nouvel avocat, choisi cette fois par la chanteuse, Mathew Rosengart. Celui-ci demande la fin de ce « cauchemar kafkaïen » et finit par l'obtenir. En décembre 2021, Britney Spears retrouve le contrôle de ses finances et de sa fortune, estimée à 60 millions de dollars.

Mais l’histoire n’en restera pas là : le 19 janvier, la question de la gestion des finances de l’artiste qui a vendu 100 millions d’albums en 20 ans de carrière sera à nouveau discutée devant un tribunal de Los Angeles. Restent en effet aujourd’hui des questions majeures sur la gestion des finances de l’artiste par ses tuteurs, soupçonnés d’avoir largement profité de leur statut légal.

« Le cas de Britney Spears met en lumière ce système de tutelle en général, dans lequel les gens qui prennent des décisions sont aussi rémunérés pour leurs services, souligne Samantha Stark. Tant que la tutelle continue, ils font de l’argent. Le cas de Britney est unique parce qu’elle donnait des spectacles et faisait des millions de dollars. C’est un cas unique, mais avec un conflit d’intérêts évident pour les tuteurs. »

«  Je ne crois pas que la fin de la tutelle soit la fin de l’histoire, Britney a répété encore et encore qu’elle voulait poursuivre ceux qui ont profité de sa tutelle. Elle pourrait lancer une enquête ou lancer une poursuite, même si la tutelle est terminée », croit Samantha Stark, jointe à New York en décembre dernier.

Journaliste vidéo pour le New York Times, Samantha Stark a réalisé et produit deux documentaires coups de poing en 2021 sur la tutelle de Britney Spears, Framing Britney Spears et Controlling Britney Spears. Tous deux ont allumé, puis nourri une vague de soutien d’une ampleur inédite en faveur de la chanteuse de Work Bitch et du mouvement #FreeBritney.

À 40 ans, Britney Spears n’est plus l’écolière sexy dont tout le monde remettait en cause la virginité, ni la jeune sex-symbol dénigrée par les tabloïds, ni la femme harcelée par les paparazzis. En 2021, la réhabilitation de l’icône pop fait aussi cheminer bien des femmes de sa génération.

« Au final, notre façon de traiter les célébrités, c’est aussi la façon dont on se traite les uns les autres. C’est pour ça qu’on peut se sentir interpellés par le cas de Britney. », argue avec justesse Samantha Stark.

LES OBSEQUES DES FRERES BOGDANOV

LUNDI 10 JANVER 2022 A LA MADELEINE

Les frères Bogdanov, tous deux décédés du Covid-19, seront honorés lundi en l’église de la Madeleine à Paris.Une messe en hommage à Igor et Grichka Bogdanov sera célébrée lundi à 15H00 en l’église de la Madeleine à Paris, a annoncé mercredi la famille dans un communiqué. « Leur inhumation se déroulera dans la stricte intimité », ajoute le court texte transmis à l'AFP par l’agent des célèbres jumeaux.

Partis à six jours d’écart.

C’est la fin d’une double trajectoire étourdissante tracée par ces descendants de l’aristocratie autrichienne devenus princes du Paf. Révélés par l’émission «Temps X» , les frères baroques et visionnaires s’étaient laissé griser par le vertige de la science. En repensant l’origine de l’Univers, ils avaient gagné la dimension de chercheurs populaires et controversés.

À 72 ans, Igor et Grichka Bogdanov avaient choisi de ne pas être vaccinés contre le Covid-19. Jusqu’au bout, leur rapport au corps et à la médecine a été nimbé d’un certain mystère, une aura d’ovni. Selon Amélie de Bourbon-Parme, ex-épouse d’Igor Bogdanov , « ils sont tombés malades quelques jours avant leur hospitalisation le 15 décembre ».

« Les choses se sont dégradées. C’est le destin. Ils n’ont pas pu être séparés plus longtemps... Ils ont été très entourés à l’hôpital ! Jusqu’au bout, ils se donnaient des nouvelles à quelques chambres d’écart... », a confié mercredi Mme de Bourbon-Parme sur BFMTV. L’ex-épouse d’Igor Bogdanov, avec lequel elle a eu deux enfants, a confirmé que les deux frères n’étaient pas vaccinés.

La phobie des médecins et des médicaments

« Ils n’en faisait pas un sujet politique. Ils n’évangélisaient personne. C’était une décision personnelle liée à leur phobie des médecins et des médicaments. Il y a un lien avec le sujet de la mort qui était tabou pour eux et qui les fascinaient. Ils ne voulaient pas regarder la mort et ne voulaient aucun lien avec elle, préférant l’oublier », a-t-elle expliqué.

« Ils était fascinés par la science et les découvertes. On n’est jamais à une contradiction près... », a estimé Mme de Bourbon-Parme.

ELIZABETH HOLMES EX-STAR DE LA SILICON VALLEY COUPABLE DE FRAUDE ENVERS SES INVESTISSEURS

Une icône de la Silicon Valley est tombée. Elizabeth Holmes a été condamnée lundi soir par le tribunal fédéral de San José (Californie) pour fraude et escroquerie à propos de son projet fou de start-up à l’origine de sa richesse, évaluée à plusieurs milliards de dollars. Après plus de trois mois d’un procès emblématique, Elizabeth Holmes, qui promettait de révolutionner les tests sanguins, a été reconnue coupable de fraude. Une sanction rare dans le monde de la tech

L’ex-star de la Silicon Valley a parlé. Elle a tenté de convaincre les jurés de son innocence et s’est présentée comme victime de violences sexuelles agissant sous l’emprise de Sunny Balwani, son associé avec qui elle a entretenu une relation pendant douze ans, et dont le procès est prévu pour le mois de mars 2022.

Après plusieurs jours de délibérations le jury a enfin rendu son verdict. Après plus de cinquante heures de délibération , les douze jurés réunis au tribunal de San José ont conclu qu'Elizabeth Holmes, la fondatrice de Theranos, a bien cherché à tromper ses investisseurs. Cette décision, très inhabituelle, ne devrait pourtant pas changer la culture de la Silicon Valley, où les entrepreneurs n'hésitent pas à embellir la réalité pour attirer des capitaux.

Une ascension fulgurante

Intitulée Theranos, l’entreprise avait tout, en théorie, pour révolutionner la médecine aux Etats-Unis. Avec une idée simple : à partir de quelques gouttes de sang prélevées, une machine appelée « Edison » pourrait en tirer plusieurs centaines d’analyses à même d’informer le patient sur sa santé. Sa fondatrice clamait que ces équipements étaient capables de réaliser plus de 200 tests sanguins.

Dans un pays où des millions d’Américains renoncent à se faire soigner, le projet a de quoi susciter l'enthousiasme. D’autant qu’Elizabeth Holmes promet que le test sera accessible au plus grand nombre.

Il fascine d’ailleurs autant les investisseurs que le monde politique qui, tous, soutiennent financièrement et médiatiquement le projet et n’hésitent pas à louer les qualités de la jeune entrepreneuse, qui a lancé la start-up en 2003 à tout juste 19 ans. En 2015, Forbes estime la fortune personnelle de la jeune trentenaire à 4,5 milliards de dollars. Joe Biden, alors vice-président des Etats-Unis, la qualifie à l’époque de « visionnaire ».

Les milliards s’accumulent, les contrats sont passés avec des chaînes de pharmacie ou d’épicerie pour installer à l’avenir son futur dispositif révolutionnaire. Tout semble sourire à cette fille d’une assistante parlementaire et d’un ancien directeur, désormais l’égale de Steve Jobs, fondateur d’Apple mort en 2011, son idole avec qui elle partage une passion pour le col roulé noir.

En réalité, ils parvenaient à en effectuer douze seulement, et leurs résultats étaient aléatoires. La supercherie a été dévoilée en 2015, dans un article publié par le « Wall Street Journal ».

Les défauts de son invention cachés

La milliardaire est alors pointée du doigt pour avoir masqué les défauts de sa création imparfaite. Au cours d’un procès de trois mois, une témoin a assuré qu’un test lui indiquait à tort une fausse couche. Un autre a indiqué qu’il avait été diagnostiqué séropositif, ce qui était faux également.

Elle n’a alors pas hésité à adopter le mantra «fake it until you make it» (fait semblant jusqu’à ce qui tu y arrives, ndlr) pendant des années. Et a inventé de toute pièce certains faits, comme l’utilisation de son outil par l’armée américaine en Afghanistan. Une information démentie par Jim Mattis, ancien secrétaire à la Défense de Donald Trump, qui assure que Theranos « n'avait jamais été déployée par les militaires sur le terrain ».

Coupable sur quatre points

Selon les jurés, entre 2010 et 2015, Elizabeth Holmes a œuvré à tromper les investisseurs, qui ont englouti plusieurs centaines de millions de dollars dans sa start-up. Elle a aussi été jugée coupable de trois autres chefs d'accusation portant sur des investissements individuels.

En théorie, chacun d'entre eux peut entraîner une peine maximale de vingt ans de prison maximum, et ces peines s'additionnent. Selon les médias américains, il est cependant peu probable que le juge décide d'imposer des peines aussi lourdes. L'ancienne PDG de Theranos devrait faire appel.

Les jurés, en revanche, ont conclu que la fondatrice de Theranos n'a pas cherché à tromper les patients. Sur les trois autres chefs d'accusation, portant sur des investissements individuels dans la start-up, le jury n'est pas parvenu à trouver un accord unanime. Les procureurs pourraient décider de déclencher un nouveau procès pour trancher ces points en suspens.

Défilé de témoins

Le jury a donc été convaincu par les 29 témoins qui ont raconté les méthodes douteuses employées par la start-up. Entre septembre et décembre, l'accusation a convoqué des patients ayant reçu des résultats de tests sanguins erronés, des investisseurs déçus, d'anciens employés de Theranos et des responsables de compagnies pharmaceutiques. Plusieurs éléments incriminant Elizabeth Holmes ont été montrés, dont des documents qu'elle a reconnu avoir trafiqués.

A la fin du procès, Elizabeth Holmes a choisi de se défendre elle-même . Elle a reconnu avoir fait des erreurs et exprimé des regrets, tout en déclarant qu'elle croyait en la mission de sa start-up et au potentiel de sa technologie. Elle a aussi accusé Ramesh Balwani, son ancien amant et directeur des opérations de sa start-up, de l'avoir manipulée et contrainte à avoir des relations sexuelles. Ce dernier, qui nie toutes ces accusations, sera jugé séparément en février.

Le procès de la Silicon Valley ?

Les verdicts coupables sont rarissimes aux Etats-Unis pour des chefs d'entreprise accusés de fraude. D'autres fondateurs de start-up, dont Adam Neumann, qui a créé l'entreprise de coworking WeWork ou l'ancien PDG d'Uber, Travis Kalanick, ont été poussés vers la sortie par leurs investisseurs, sans être poursuivis en justice pour autant.

Ce verdict est emblématique d'un changement général d'attitude aux Etats-Unis, vis-à-vis des entrepreneurs de la Silicon Valley. Autrefois admirés pour leur audace, ils font désormais l'objet de critiques, voire de tentatives de régulation qui n'ont pas abouti jusqu'à présent. Si la condamnation d'Elisabeth Holmes pourrait faire réfléchir à deux fois des entrepreneurs tentés d'embellir les faits pour attirer des financements, les investisseurs ne paraissent pas du tout concernés et injectent des montants records dans les start-up.

Angela Lee, professeur de capital-risque à l'université de Columbia estime par exemple que «ce verdict ne changera pas les pratiques de l'écosystème». . Pour comprendre, il faut s’intéresser à la culture de la Silicon Valley. Dans ce monde, innover, c’est sortir des sentiers battus pour donner vie à une idée, aussi disruptive soit-elle. Si vous persuadez les investisseurs de vous donner de l’argent, vous pouvez poursuivre des idées folles.

C’est le jeu et les investisseurs le savent. Voilà leur philosophie : ils soutiennent 100 idées en se disant qu’une finira par payer et rapporter de l’argent Egalement à la tête d'un fonds d'amorçage,Angela Lee raconte que le rapport de force est désormais entre les mains des fondateurs qui ont le choix entre des argentiers de moins en moins scrupuleux: «Je ne compte plus le nombre de fois où l'on me propose d'entrer au capital d'une start-up en me disant 'untel nous suit, vous avez cinq jours pour vous décider'. Le process d'évaluation de ces entreprises s'est accéléré.» Du côté des investisseurs, c’est l’effet domino : une entreprise attire des investisseurs et d’autres investisseurs suivent derrière, sans poser les bonnes questions, ils n’en sont pas capables. Rendant encore plus complexe la capacité des investisseurs à démasquer les prochains fraudeurs..

Certains investisseurs sont peut-être plus prudents, mais le paradigme reste le même : des entreprises visent les étoiles, sans expliquer comment elles comptent arriver. Des voix s’élèvent pour davantage de transparence, d’autres sont partisans du secret et du laisser aller. Le système est là pour que Theranos se reproduise…

En 2022 un procès en appel devrait se dérouler et Bad Blood, le livre de John Carreyrou relatant les faits, sera adapté au cinéma avec Jennifer Lawrence dans le rôle d'Elizabeth Holmes.

LA VIE  ROMANESQUE DE GRICHKA BOGDANOFF ET DE SON FRERE  IGOR MORTS DU COVID A 72 ANS



Les jumeaux stars des années 1980 ne sont plus. Igor Bogdanoff vient de mourir à l’âge de 72 ans, annonce son agent ce lundi  4 janvier 2022. Son décès survient six jours seulement après celui de son frère Grichka, hospitalisé comme lui après une contamination au Covid-19. L 'un des deux frères Bogdanoff, Grichka, est mort à l'âge de 72 ans, avait alors annoncé son agent mardi 28 décembre.

Pas vaccinés

Les deux hommes n'étaient pas vaccinés. Invité sur BFMTV ce lundi, l'avocat de Grichka Bogdanoff, Edouard de Lamaze, a affirmé que « oui, oui, bien sûr », Igor Bogdanoff est décédé des suites du Covid-19.

« Dans la paix et l'amour, entouré de ses enfants et de sa famille, Igor Bogdanoff est parti vers la lumière lundi 3 janvier 2022 », ont écrit ses proches dans un message transmis par son agent.

Difficile de dissocier les jumeaux à la trajectoire parfaitement parallèle. Tous deux ont été lancés à la télévision en 1979, après avoir publié en 1976, un livre de vulgarisation scientifique, intitulé Clefs pour la science-fiction. « On a été invité au journal de 13 heures d’Yves Mourousi, sur TF1, et c’est comme ça qu’on a créé Temps X, grâce à notre livre », évoquait Igor Bogdanoff sur le plateau de BFMTV en 2018.

Mais pourquoi donc les frères Bogdanoff ont-ils refusé de se faire vacciner ? Une position militante revendiquée ? Une trop grande confiance dans leur système immunitaire ? Leur ami Luc Ferry, qui les connaissait bien, a avancé un début de réponse dans Le Parisien. « Grichka, comme Igor, n’était pas antivax, il était antivax pour lui-même, affirme l’ancien ministre de l’Éducation nationale, qui passait parfois des vacances avec eux. On en a encore parlé au téléphone il y a moins de trois semaines, quand tout allait bien pour eux. » https://www.lepoint.fr/people/covid-1

«Entouré de l’amour de sa famille et des siens, Grichka Bogdanoff s’est éteint paisiblement, le 28 décembre 2021, pour rejoindre ses étoiles», a écrit sa famille dans un communiqué transmis par son agent. Contactée par cette dernière, la famille n'a pas souhaité revenir sur les causes de son décès.

De source journalistique, Grichka Bogdanoff avait été hospitalisé le 15 décembre dans le service de réanimation de l’hôpital Georges-Pompidou, après avoir contracté le Covid-19. Le même jour, son frère Igor avait été également reçu au sein du même service de cet établissement, pour des raisons identiques. Selon une source proche des deux frères, ils n’étaient pas vaccinés contre le Covid-19.

En avril 2020, soit un peu plus d'un an avant sa disparition, le scientifique avait donné des nouvelles très rassurantes dans les colonnes d'Ici Paris. « On conserve un regard d'enfant, d'émerveillement sur le monde. Nous ne regardons jamais en direction du passé, mais toujours vers l'avenir », avait-il rétorqué lorsque les journalistes lui avaient demandé de faire le bilan de sa vie à 70 ans passés.

Inséparables jumeaux

Avec son frère jumeau Igor, Grichka Bogdanoff avait lancé «Temps X», l'une des premières émissions télévisées de vulgarisation scientifique en France dans les années 1980. Les frères Bogdanoff détonnent dans le paysage audiovisuel français avec des effets spéciaux d’époque et des combinaisons argentées inusables, portées pendant neuf saisons face à de nombreux invités, comme Jacques Attali, Jean-Michel Jarre ou encore Jean-Claude Mézières. Les « Bogda » ont réalisé deux autres émissions scientifiques, pour France 2 – « Rayons X », de 2002 à 2007, puis « A deux pas du futur », entre 2010 et 2011. En réponse aux attaques visant leur légitimité, ils dénoncent une communauté scientifique incapable d’accepter un point de vue atypique et fustigent la cabale médiatique.

Ils parlent du train du futur, d’intelligence artificielle, d’astronomie ou d’OVNIS. Si tout le monde n’est pas fan – le magazine L’Express ironise en 1985 sur « ces clones de cirque qui ont inventé le look sanisette, asexué » –, ils sont toutefois propulsés au rang d’icônes par toute une génération qui admire leur brio de surdoués : « A 11 ans, nous avons passé des tests qui nous ont appris que nous faisons partie des 0,01 % de la population ayant un quotient intellectuel supérieur à 190 », relevait Grichka.

« Le cas est rare mais nous sommes investis de tous les avantages des jumeaux – une résonance physique, intellectuelle et morale –, sans l’inconvénient majeur que l’un installe son gouvernement sur l’autre », ajoutait-il.

Docteurs en physique et en mathématique, écrivains, animateurs de télévision, descendants de l’aristocratie autrichienne, figures de la vulgarisation scientifique pour le grand public et objets de controverses pour les chercheurs… en plus de quarante ans de vie publique, Igor et Grichka Bogdanoff (qui ont remplacé l’orthographe de leur nom en « Bogdanov », en signature de leurs ouvrages dès les années 1990) ont accumulé nombre de succès populaires.

Ils avaient par ailleurs connu un succès constant en librairie, avec la parution de nombreux best-sellers ayant pour sujets le cosmos, la naissance de l'Univers ou encore les innovations technologiques, comme « Le visage de Dieu» (ed. Grasset), «Le Code secret de l'Univers» (ed. Albin Michel), ou encore «3 minutes pour comprendre la grande théorie du Big Bang» (ed. Le Courrier du Livre).

Le 20 novembre dernier, Igor et Grichka Bogdanov étaient apparus publiquement, salle Gaveau à Paris, afin d'animer un débat à l'occasion de la parution du livre «Dieu, la science, les preuves» de Michel-Yves Bolloré et Olivier Bonnassies (éditions Guy Tredaniel).

Pour les deux auteurs, les découvertes scientifiques du XXe siècle et de ces deux dernières décennies, loin d’éloigner l’idée de Dieu, permettent au contraire aujourd’hui d’affirmer que l’Univers a un début absolu – le Big Bang correspondant bien à cette perspective – et une fin prévisible, comme la thermodynamique tend à le prouver.

Une vie romanesque

Nés dans le village de Saint-Lary, dans le Gers, le 29 août 1949, leur père serait un artiste peintre russe d’origine tatare, leur mère la fille naturelle d’une aristocrate autrichienne. Ils sont élevés par des précepteurs, au milieu des 15.000 ouvrages en français, russe, anglais ou allemand de la bibliothèque familiale.

Grichka avait été diagnostiqué Asperger

Grichka Bogdanov avait révélé avoir été diagnostiqué du syndrome d'Asperger. « J'ai été testé officiellement Asperger », avait-il fait savoir, avant de préciser :

« Ça me permet de mieux situer les caractéristiques de mon fonctionnement psychique.

Par exemple, apprendre par cœur les mille premières décimales du nombre pi. »

Par ailleurs, beaucoup de mystère entoure la biographie des célèbres jumeaux, qui ont eu plusieurs fois maille à partir avec la justice. Un procès pour « escroquerie sur personne vulnérable » visant les deux frères doit avoir lieu les 20, 21 et 27 janvier 2022. Ils sont accusés d’avoir spolié un millionnaire bipolaire pour régler leurs déboires financiers et relancer Temps X, l’émission de science-fiction qui les a rendus célèbres.

Ces dernières années, ils avaient surtout défrayé la chronique au travers des moqueries des humoristes à propos de leur visage profondément transformé.

« Nous revendiquons d’avoir une gueule d’extraterrestres », affirmaient-ils en 2010, sans donner d’autres détails. Grichka Bogdanoff était célibataire et n'avait pas d'enfant.

MESSAGE DE NOEL

LE PRINCE PHILIP MANQUE A SA REINE ELISABETH II

Dans son message de Noël, Elizabeth II partage sa peine d’avoir perdu Philip . Elizabeth II a confié samedi que son défunt époux Philip lui « manque » dans un touchant hommage rendu lors de sa traditionnelle allocution de Noël, une fête de nouveau assombrie par la Covid-19. « Bien que ce soit pour beaucoup de gens une période de grand bonheur et de gaieté, Noël peut être difficile pour ceux qui ont perdu des êtres chers. Cette année, je comprends particulièrement pourquoi », a déclaré la souveraine dans ce message, personnel comme rarement, enregistré au château de Windsor.

Elle y apparaît vêtue d’une robe rouge, assise derrière un bureau sur lequel est posée une photographie de Philip et elle se regardant en souriant, prise en 2007 à l’occasion de leurs noces de diamant (60 ans de mariage). Elle porte une broche chrysanthème en saphir qu’elle avait arboré pour sa lune de miel en 1947, bijou qui apparaît aussi sur le cliché de 2007.« Je sais qu’il voudrait que nous profitions de Noël »

La monarque de 95 ans assure avoir « tiré un grand réconfort » des nombreux hommages qu’elle a reçus depuis le décès du duc d’Édimbourg en avril à 99 ans. Évoquant avec tendresse Philip avec laquelle elle a été mariée 73 ans, elle cite « son sens du devoir, sa curiosité intellectuelle et sa capacité à s’amuser de toute situation ». « L’éclat espiègle et interrogateur (de ses yeux) était aussi brillant à la fin que lorsque j’ai posé les yeux sur lui pour la première fois », poursuit-elle. « Bien qu’il me manque, et manque à ma famille, je sais qu’il voudrait que nous profitions de Noël », ajoute la reine, assise auprès d’un grand sapin scintillant, insistant sur la « joie » de la fête « malgré le rire familier qui nous manque ».

2021 aura été une année difficile pour la souveraine nonagénaire, qui après avoir perdu son époux a dû renoncer à la plupart de ses engagements. Ses médecins l’ont mise au repos après une nuit passée à l’hôpital en octobre pour des raisons jamais précisées. Et ces premières fêtes de fin d’année sans Philip, qu’elle avait qualifié de « roc », sont assombries par la résurgence fulgurante des cas de Covid-19 au Royaume-Uni. Après avoir annulé le traditionnel déjeuner qu’elle donne avant les fêtes pour une cinquantaine de membres de sa famille, elle a renoncé à se rendre fêter Noël à Sandringham, dans l’est de l’Angleterre, restant au château de Windsor près de Londres, désormais sa résidence principale.

Son fils aîné, Charles, et son épouse, Camilla, passent Noël à ses côtés, mais pas sa fille, Anne, qui s’isole depuis que son mari a été testé positif au coronavirus. Le prince William, fils aîné de Charles, son épouse Kate et leurs trois enfants passent Noël dans l’est de l’Angleterre. Charles et Camilla se sont rendus samedi matin

« Même si en raison du Covid, nous ne pouvons pas célébrer (Noël) tout à fait comme nous l’aurions souhaité, nous pouvons toujours profiter de nombreuses et joyeuses traditions », comme entonner un chant de Noël ou décorer un sapin, a suggéré Elizabeth II dans son allocution. Évoquant la transmission de traditions et de valeurs, la reine a cité la protection de l’environnement. Elle s’est félicitée que le « travail de pionnier » de Philip ait été « repris » par Charles et William, impliqués dans la conférence sur le climat COP26 en Écosse alors qu’elle-même avait dû annuler sa venue.

La souveraine ne fait, en revanche, aucune mention du prince Harry et de son épouse Meghan, qui ont pris leurs distances avec la famille royale en 2020 et vivent désormais en Californie, même si elle s’est réjouie de la naissance de quatre enfants dans la famille royale en 2021, dont Lilibet, deuxième enfant du couple.

La reine a évoqué les grands rendez-vous de 2022, dont les jeux du Commonwealth l’été prochain, et surtout les célébrations de son jubilé de platine, marquant ses 70 ans de son accession au trône le 6 février 1952.

MALGRE ELLE MARIAH CAREY

 LA REINE DES CHANTS DE NOEL

Chaque année à partir de la fin novembre, Mariah Carey fait son retour à la radio ou dans les haut-parleurs des magasins avec son tube de Noël « All I want for Christmas is you ».

Sorti en 1994, le tube de Noël de Mariah Carey vient de pulvériser un nouveau record. Inédit dans l"histoire de la musique, il s'est placé cette semaine en tête du Billboard 100.

La chanteuse a remercié ses fans sur Instagram : « Les enfants m'ont réveillée avec la bonne nouvelle.

Je suis si reconnaissante, surtout envers les Lambily. Je vous aime tellement ! » Les Lambily sont le nom que donne Mariah Carey à ses fans.

Mais la diva de la pop pense que son titre de reine de Noël n'est plus au goût du jour, voire usurpée, au micro du Zoe Ball Breakfast Festival.

Un titre qu'elle laisse volontiers ... à la Vierge Marie.

« C'est elle la reine de Noël » conclut-elle au micro de la radio britannique.

Cette révélation intervient en pleine promotion de Fall in Love at Christmas. Un nouveau titre taillé pour les fêtes.

La diva sort en effet dans la foulée un nouveau single de... Noël intitulée « Fall in love at Christmas », aux côtés du chanteur RnB Khalid et de l'icône du gospel Kirk Franklin.

Cette nouveauté a été présentée lors du récent show Mariah's Christmas: The Magic Continues diffusé sur Apple TV+ et réalisé par Hamish Hamilton et Roman Coppola. Mariah Carey en est évidemment la vedette, entourée d'invités célèbres.

Elue plus la plus grande pop star de l'année 2014 par le Time, elle a aussi intégré en novembre dernier le célèbre Guiness Book des Records pour avoir vendu près de 17 millions d'exemplaires.

COVID-19 LA REINE ELISABETH II ANNULE

SON TRADITIONNEL REPAS FAMILIAL DE NOEL

La reine Elizabeth II d’Angleterre a annulé un repas en famille prévu avant Noël, a appris la presse britannique ce jeudi 16 décembre auprès du palais de Buckingham.

« Le repas familial d’avant Noël n’aura pas lieu, a confié cette source à Reuters. La décision est une mesure de précaution car cela mettrait en danger les préparatifs de Noël de trop nombreuses personnes s’il avait lieu. »

Les cas de Covid-19 explosent outre-manche

La souveraine de 95 ans, dont les apparitions sont rares depuis sa brève hospitalisation en octobre, comptait réunir une cinquantaine de personnes mardi midi au château de Windsor, désormais sa résidence principale, à l’ouest de Londres. Elle doit ensuite aller passer Noël à Sandringham, dans l’est de l’Angleterre, avec sa famille rapprochée. Cette coutume est un hommage à l'héritage allemand de la monarchie britannique.

Ainsi, chaque année, les membres de la famille arrivent à Sandringham pour les fêtes de fin d'année. Les cadeaux sont disposés sur des tables différentes de façon à ce que chaque invité ait sa propre pile. Après qu'ils ont décoré l'arbre de Noël et pris le thé de l'après-midi, les membres de la famille royale procède à l'échange de cadeaux à 18 heures tapante.

Le tabloïd The Sun rapportait mercredi qu’elle espérait maintenir ce repas auquel elle tient beaucoup, annulé l’an dernier déjà en raison de la pandémie et qui aurait été son premier depuis la mort de son époux Philip en avril.

Les autorités sanitaires britanniques ont recommandé mercredi d’éviter tout rassemblement avant les fêtes de fin d’année, alors que le Royaume-Uni enregistre un nombre record de contaminations par le coronavirus.

La reine hospitalisée en octobre

La reine, qui est âgée de 95 ans, a été hospitalisée en octobre dernier et a annulé ensuite ses engagements officiels pendant plusieurs semaines.

Elle a depuis considérablement réduit ses activités et notamment annulé sa présence à la conférence sur le climat COP26 en Écosse. Elle tient la plupart de ses audiences par visioconférence mais aussi quelques unes en personne comme mercredi avec le sultan d’Oman, qu’elle a reçu à Windsor.

L'état de santé de la souveraine, qui règne depuis près de 70 ans, inquiète depuis qu'elle a été mise au repos par ses médecins le 20 octobre et a passé une nuit à l'hôpital pour des examens « préliminaires » dont la nature n'a jamais été précisée.

DIANE LEYRE SACREE MISS FRANCE 2022

Diane Leyre, Miss Ile-de-France, a été élue Miss France 2022 dans la nuit de samedi 11 à dimanche 12 décembre 2021, à l’issue d’un concours organisé à Caen, retransmis sur TF1. Sa première dauphine est Miss Martinique, et sa deuxième dauphine, Miss Alsace. Elle succède à Amandine Petit (Normandie), qui avait été élue en décembre 2020. Il s’agit de la première Miss francilienne a être élue depuis 1997.

La jeune femme brune de 1 m 77, âgée de 24 ans, a été choisie à 50/50 par les téléspectateurs et par un jury de sept personnalités présidé par l’ancien présentateur du journal télévisé Jean-Pierre Pernaut.

Le jury s’est prononcé à l’issue d’une soirée au cours de laquelle les 29 miss régionales candidates ont présenté une série de chorégraphies sur des airs connus de comédies musicales sous les acclamations du public du Zénith de Caen.

Titulaire d'un Bachelor de business administration, Diane Leyre travaille sur Paris dans une entreprise de promotion immobilière située dans le 7ème arrondissement de la capitale. Trilingue (elle parle aussi bien le français, l'anglais que l'espagnol, ndlr), cette fan de fitness et romans a étudié à Madrid.

La Parisienne  va devoir quitter son emploi pour se consacrer à 100 % à son nouveau statut. Mais pas de quoi l’effrayer : « Je suis prête à devenir ambassadrice de notre beau pays », confiait-elle après son sacre. Diane Leyre a également la fibre entrepreneuriale puisqu’elle a créé pendant la crise du Covid-19 son entreprise, « une marque qui proposait des bandoulières pour les sacs à main, a-t-elle détaillé au Figaro. Cela a super bien marché mais, quand j’ai repris le travail, je ne pouvais pas concilier les deux. »

Sur fond de polémique

L’élection s’est déroulée sur fond de polémique alors que le concours est de plus en plus critiqué, notamment sur la représentation des femmes. L'association Osez le féminisme ! qui accuse le concours de violation du droit du travail, a déposé plainte.

Ce concours est réservé aux femmes célibataires de moins de 25 ans, d’une taille minimale de 1 m 70. Ainsi la ministre de l’égalité entre les femmes et les hommes, Elisabeth Moreno, a déploré vendredi des « règles dépassées (…) qui peuvent être discriminantes ». Mme Moreno a, par exemple, regretté qu’une « femme veuve ou une femme qui est déjà mère ne puisse pas postuler ». Mme Moreno a reçu au ministère Alexia Laroche-Joubert, la présidente de la société Miss France, filiale de la société de production Endemol.

Et elle s’est dite « quasiment certaine » que les règles « vont évoluer ». Mme Laroche-Joubert a ainsi annoncé depuis, lors de la présentation du concours 2022, que les candidates seraient pour la première fois rémunérées pour la finale, mais pas pour les répétitions. La participation de personnes transgenres est « envisageable » et a « fait partie des discussions » avec Mme Laroche-Joubert, a, en outre, assuré Mme Moreno, samedi sur Europe 1. De quoi faire bondir Geneviève de Fontenay, 89 ans, qui a claqué la porte du concours pour « Féministe ».

« En tant que femme j’ai envie de montrer qu’on peut être Miss France et féministe […], s’est défendue la lauréate. Pour moi, le féminisme c’est de décider de faire ce que je veux. » La jeune femme n’a pas hésité à miser sur l’humour pour convaincre le jury et les spectateurs. « Pour un an seulement, adoptez-moi », a-t-elle lancé au public.

Avec les 28 candidates avec qui je suis montée sur scène, on s’est senties plus féministes que jamais de prendre le pouvoir de notre vie, de monter sur scène alors qu’on a entre 18 et 24 ans, de prendre le micro, de tenir des discours », a-t-elle ajouté ce dimanche 12 décembre 2021.

Laissons la parole à Roselyne Bachelot : « J’aime bien le concours de Miss France (…).

C’est un concours amusant, glamour », avait déclaré, vendredi, la ministre de la culture, sur un plateau.

« On a besoin d’un peu de légèreté », et ces jeunes femmes « sont loin d’être des potiches. »

GRAND PRIX DE L'HUMOUR POLITIQUE 2021

A MARLENE SCHIAPPA

« ON NE VA PAS S'INTERDIRE LES PLANS A TROIS »

Marlène Schiappa succède à Édouard Philippe. La ministre déléguée auprès du ministre de l’Intérieur, chargée de la Citoyenneté, a reçu le Grand Prix de l’humour politique 2021, mardi, des mains du jury du prix « Press Club, humour et politique ». Cette récompense est due à une phrase prononcée au micro de Radio J lorsqu’elle défendait son projet de loi visant à lutter contre la polygamie. « On ne va pas s’interdire les plans à trois », avait-elle jugé bon de préciser. On savait Marlène Shappia une femme libérée...

Le Prix du Jury est attribué au candidat souverainiste à la présidentielle Nicolas Dupont-Aignan pour sa déclaration : « Je suis fort chez les gens qui sont à la limite du vote ».

Le Prix du Jeu de « Miot » (en hommage à Jean Miot, créateur du prix) et le Prix Spécial du Jury sont attribués à Jean-Pierre Raffarin, ancien Premier Ministre : « Quand la droite se durcit, elle se rétrécit ».

Cette saillie de Jean-Pierre Raffarin fait partie de la deuxième portée des phrases en lice pour le prix « Press club, humour et politique » 2021.

Le Prix de l’encouragement a été décerné à Audrey Pulvar, adjointe à la maire PS de Paris Anne Hidalgo : « Ce qui se passe avec les votes extrêmes et l’abstention, c’est la traduction concrète des effets du réchauffement climatique ».

Le Prix de la récidive a été adressé à l’ex-président François Hollande : « Michel Barnier a un côté prince charmant pour les maisons de retraite ».

Le Prix Marcel Duchamp a été remis à la ministre de la Culture Roselyne Bachelot : « Comme disait mon grand-père, mieux vaut avoir des gens dans sa tente et qui pissent dehors que l’inverse ».

Emmanuel Macron s’est vu décerner le prix Sigmund Freud, pour sa réponse à une agricultrice lors de sa visite d’une foire en Provence : « La réforme des retraites, on fera cela quand on tombera les masques ».

Le Prix de la révélation de l’année a été attribué à Sandrine Rousseau, candidate à la primaire écologiste : « Je vis avec un homme déconstruit et je suis super heureuse ».

Enfin, le Prix des Internautes a été décerné, ex-æquo, au Premier Ministre Jean Castex - "Moins nous alimentons les polémiques auto portées, mieux nous nous portons - et au sénateur LR de Paris Pierre Charon : "Xavier Bertrand voulait être hypersonique, il est subsonique, il n’a pas passé le mur du son".

Le prix « Press club, humour et politique » avait été remporté en 2019 par Édouard Philippe.

À la question de savoir si tout remontait à Matignon, le Premier ministre de l’époque avait répondu : « Non, seulement les emmerdes. »

THE ARTIST JOSEPHINE BAKER GRANDE RESISTANTE

AT THE PANTHEON

She is the 6th woman to make her entry. Out of 80 people who have made history, Josephine Baker is only the sixth woman to enter the Pantheon. Sophie Berthelot, Marie Curie, Germaine Tillion, Germaine de Gaulle-Anthonioz and Simone Veil preceded her. This date of November 30 was not chosen at random. It coincides with the anniversary date of Joséphine Baker's marriage to Jean Lion. This union, which lasted 14 months, allowed her to become French.

Large Fig of the Resistance

The one who loved singing above all else and was also engaged during World War II.Josephine Baker initially refused to perform in front of the Nazi soldiers. And in September 1939, it was presented to Jacques Abtey, head of the military counter-espionage in Paris.

This one offers a mission to Josephine Baker: to gather information on the enemy troops. For this, she will have to use her popularity as an artist, be invited to embassies and dinners. A perfect role for this tall, elegant and socialite woman. No one can suspect her; elegant and worldly.

At the Château des Milandes, located in the Dordogne, which she rented in 1937, then bought ten years later, Joséphine Baker also organized circles of resistance fighters. Very involved, she was called to help General de Gaulle, a refugee in London.

She then agrees to serve as cover for Jacques Abtey, who must transmit to the information of Free France, on the other side of the Channel therefore, information collected in the occupied zone. He then traveled under the false identity of Jacques Hébert, “artist accompanying Madame Joséphine Baker”. As for the top secret notes, they are hidden in cipher language in the singer's scores. This little stratagem will also be the occasion for a first meeting between Joséphine Baker and the General.

The artist is then sent on a mission to North Africa, to Algiers, Fez, Alexandria, etc. She gives concerts there, but her presence always has another purpose. “It's very convenient to be Josephine Baker. The customs officers do ask me for papers, but they are autographs, ”she jokes, while hiding information notes under her clothes.

In 1957, she was made a Knight of the Legion of Honor.

The coffin, which will not contain the body of the icon of the Roaring Twenties, will be filled with soil from the four symbolic places where Josephine Baker spent part of her life: Saint-Louis, her birthplace in the United States, Paris, her city of heart, the Milandes in the Dordogne where she owned a castle, and Monaco, where she rests near her husband and one of her children.

"You have to have known her to imagine what kindness is" tweeted Line Renaud.

The Head of State will deliver a speech in tribute to this "world-renowned artist, engaged in the Resistance, tireless anti-racist activist" who is "the embodiment of the French spirit".

BRADLEY COOPER AND LADY GAGA

ON THEIR ALLEGED IDYLE DURING

THE SHOOTING AT STAR IS BORN

In November 2019, Lady Gaga had already spoken about the famous rumor that she and Bradley Cooper, on the set of A Star Is Born, had fallen in love.

This speculation had reached new heights when the two actors, accomplices and entwined, performed the hit Shallow at the 2019 Oscars, for which they won the Oscar for best original song.

“We had everything orchestrated and planned. Of course we wanted people to believe we were in love.

And we worked hard on it. We worked for days. “, She had confided in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Four years after playing alongside Lady Gaga, it's the turn of the American actor to put things straight. Bradley Cooper explained that the performance was designed to play out like the central scene of the film, in large part to help him overcome his stress of singing live.

“Just on a personal level, it reduced my anxiety level,” the American Sniper comedian admitted.

“They [the characters Jackson and Ally, note] kind of fall in love in this scene in the movie.

It is this magical moment that happens to them on a stage in front of thousands of people. (...) It would have been so bizarre, if we were each on stools in front of the public ”, he affirmed in the Hollywood Reporter this Wednesday, November 17.

At the time, the actor in a relationship with the model Irina Shay, did not speak.

COLIN POWELL EX-SECRETARY OF STATE

 DEAD OF COVID-19

Colin Powell, the former US Secretary of State, died at the age of 84 from "complications related to Covid-19", his family announced on Monday, October 18.

“We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father and grandfather, and a great American,” they said in a statement.

Born April 5, 1937 in Harlem, Mr. Powell grew up in New York City, where he studied geology. He began his military career in 1958.

First posted to Germany, he was then sent to Vietnam as a military adviser to John F. Kennedy.

He was the first African-American to hold the post of chief of staff for the armed forces, before becoming the chief American diplomat under the presidency of Republican George W. Bush.

"A great servant of the State", according to George W. Bush

George W. Bush hailed the memory of his former foreign minister, saying he was "a great servant of the state".

"Many presidents have relied on the judgment and experience of General Powell," the former president said in a statement. He was highly respected at home and abroad. "

Defender of the Iraq War

He has had his career tarnished by embodying unwavering support for the Iraq war. Defender of the war in Iraq, Mr. Powell had indeed made, on February 5, 2003, before the Security Council of the United Nations (UN), a long speech on the weapons of mass destruction allegedly held by the Iraq; arguments which served to justify the invasion of the country. He later admitted that this performance was a "stain" on his reputation: "It is a stain, because I am the one who made this presentation on behalf of the United States to the world and it will always be part of it. my record. In other interviews, he will affirm that his role was above all to moderate the positions of George W. Bush and the "hawks" who advised the White House.

The former chief of staff of the armed forces has lavished his military expertise on numerous American officials, including four presidents, reinforcing a reputation as a man of honor distant from the political fray.

FINALLY BRITNEY SPEARS CAN RELIVE FREE !

Finally Britney Spears freed from the tutelage of her father !

She will be able to regain control of her life and her body.

A Los Angeles court in fact decided Wednesday to withdraw the guardianship of Britney Spears to her father Jamie, in accordance with the wishes of the singer who had described as "abusive" this measure which she has been asking for the cancellation for several years.

After opposing it, his father finally agreed to comply with his request in early September.

This supervision, set up in 2008 after mental disorders manifested by the star, remains however for the moment in force, but Jamie Spears has until further notice no longer a say in the management of privacy or of his daughter's finances, now in the hands of professionals.

The court is expected to rule on the end of this guardianship measure at a future hearing, likely by the end of the year. Jamie Spears "must be suspended on September 29, 2021 and the wardship must end quickly," wrote Mathew Rosengart, lawyer for Britney Spears, in a petition filed this week.

Judge Penny had set for November 12, 2021, a “short hearing” intended to formally endorse the end of the guardianship.

Now a second is scheduled for December 13, 2021 to look at financial matters and other details.

" Yes ! She exclaims with joy.

The marriage proposal was made at the star's home, according to Brandon Cohen (manager of Sam Asghari) to TMZ on the evening of Sunday, September 12, 2021.

Until then under the tutelage of her father, the 39-year-old singer could not formalize her relationship with her companion Sam Asghari.

But the father has finally officially asked the courts to question the very principle of the guardianship exercised over his daughter.

The two lovebirds first met in 2016, when they performed together in the music video for her hit "Slumber Party" and have lived together for more than five years.

And they have other plans like having a child.

This is what the American star had revealed to the judges during a hearing concerning his guardianship.

Justin Timberlake's ex already has two children from a previous marriage to rapper Kevin Federline..

LA MOSTRA DE VENISE EDITION 2021

RENOUE AVEC LES GRANDES STARS

La Mostra de Venise retrouve à partir de mercredi tout son lustre, après une édition 2020 en demi-teinte à cause de la pandémie, avec ce savant mélange de grosses productions américaines, de cinéma d’auteur et de glamour qui en a fait un tremplin incontournable pour les Oscars.

L’an dernier, le plus ancien des festivals de cinéma avait fait le pari de se maintenir coûte que coûte malgré le Covid, et avait remis son Lion d’Or à l’un des très rares films américains sélectionnés, « Nomadland ».

Mais ni la réalisatrice, Chloé Zhao, ni l’actrice principale, Frances McDormand, n’avaient pu faire le déplacement.

D’ici la cérémonie de clôture le 11 septembre, de nombreuses stars pourraient fouler le tapis rouge, de Kristen Stewart en Lady Diana dans « Spencer » de Pablo Larrain, à Benedict Cumberbatch, en passant par Penelope Cruz et Antonio Banderas.

Des films venant de 59 pays seront projetés sur le Lido, et la course au Lion d’Or s’ouvrira mercredi avec « Madres Paralelas », dernier film de Pedro Almodovar, figure majeure du cinéma européen.

Netflix banni à Cannes mais bien accueilli à Venise

Le jury, présidé par Bong Joon-Ho, réalisateur de « Parasite », Palme d’Or 2019 et Oscar du meilleur film l’année suivante, réunit notamment l’actrice franco-belge Virginie Efira et Chloé Zhao.

Il devra départager 21 films – dont seulement cinq signés de réalisatrices. En cause, le ralentissement de la production, lié à la pandémie, qui aurait davantage impacté les réalisatrices, a plaidé Alberto Barbera, directeur du festival.

Trois films français sont en lice :

« Un autre monde », drame social de Stéphane Brizé, « Illusions perdues », où Xavier Giannoli adapte Balzac, et « L’Evénement », une adaptation d’un roman d’Annie Ernaux sur le thème de l’avortement par Audrey Diwan, une Franco-libanaise pour la première fois en compétition.

Le géant du streaming Netflix, toujours en quête de respectabilité, prétend à un Lion d’Or avec deux films,

« La Main de Dieu » de l’Italien Paolo Sorrentino, et surtout « Le pouvoir du chien » de Jane Campion, Palme d’Or en 1993 avec « La leçon de piano ».

Venise, qui peut se targuer d’une longue histoire qui lui a permis en 78 éditions de voir passer des légendes comme Marlon Brando, Martin Scorsese ou Robert de Niro, est devenue sous la direction d’Alberto Barbera l’une des antichambres des Oscars.

« Joker » de Todd Phillips a ainsi remporté deux Oscars cinq mois après avoir été couronné Lion d’Or en 2019, et « Nomadland » a reçu les statuettes du meilleur film et du meilleur réalisateur à Hollywood après son triomphe à Venise.

L’événement se tiendra aussi hors compétition, où sera présenté «Dune», une nouvelle version du space-opéra mythique à laquelle s’est essayé le Canadien Denis Villeneuve, avec un cortège de stars au générique, de Timothée Chalamet à Oscar Isaac, en passant par la révélation de la série «Euphoria», Zendaya. Ridley Scott («Blade Runner», «Gladiator») occupera aussi l’affiche, avec «Le dernier duel», qui marque la reformation à l’écran et au scénario du duo Matt Damon/Ben Affleck, un quart de siècle après «Will Hunting».

Le palmarès doit être annoncé le 11 septembre, au terme de cette 2e édition depuis le début de la pandémie.

 LE PRINCE WILLIAM ET KATE  DEMENAGERAIENT POUR SE RAPPROCHER DE LA REINE ELISABETH II

Une rentrée avec de nouveaux projets s'annonce-t-elle pour les Cambridge ? Selon le tabloïd britannique, Kate Middleton, le prince William et leurs enfants pourraient en effet déménager prochainement de leur demeure d’Anmer Hall afin de s’installer à Windsor.

Actuellement, le duc et la duchesse de Cambridge partagent leur temps entre deux résidences : leur grand appartement à Kensington Palace, au cœur de la capitale britannique, et leur maison de campagne d'Amner Hall, situé dans le Norfolk où ils passent leur week-end et leurs vacances.

Kate et William avaient également passé le confinement dans cette propriété.

« Anmer Hall avait du sens pendant que William était pilote d'hélicoptère en Est-Anglie et c'était utile pour les fêtes de Noël à Sandringham, mais cela ne fonctionne plus vraiment. C'est un peu trop loin pour les week-ends, mais Windsor est un parfait compromis. Ils envisagent des options dans la région », a expliqué une source au Daily Mail.

S'installer plus proche de la reine, seule depuis la mort du prince Philip, les rapprocherait également du centre de décision de la Couronne. D'autant qu'après avoir passé ses confinements à Windsor, la monarque envisagerait sérieusement de s'installer définitivement au château une fois revenue de ses vacances estivales à Balmoral.

Ce déménagement leur permettrait également d'être plus près de la famille de Kate Middleton : sa mère Carole ainsi que sa sœur, Pippa, vivent en effet à Bucklebury, à seulement 60 kilomètres de Windsor.

Reste désormais à trouver une propriété dans cette nouvelle région.

LE CHANTEUR R. KELLY ACCUSE D'AVOIR SOUDOYE

UN FONCTIONNAIRE POUR EPOUSER

LA CHANTEUSE AALIYAH, ALORS MINEURE

«I believe I Can Fly ». Qu'il est loin le temps où R.Kelly survolait les charts avec son tube créé pour la bande originale de Space Jam en 1998. Depuis 20 ans, Robert Sylvester Kelly, son vrai patronyme, est davantage associé à la rubrique des faits divers.

Les témoignages à charge à l’encontre de R. Kelly se multiplient. Actuellement jugé au tribunal fédéral de Brooklyn pour abus sexuels, l’ancienne gloire déchue du R&B aurait soudoyé un fonctionnaire pour pouvoir épouser la chanteuse Aaliyah, mineure au moment des faits.

Il aurait fait un don de 500 dollars à ce fonctionnaire afin de changer les papiers d’identité de la jeune fille. C’est son ancien manager de tournée, Demetrius Smith, qui l’a affirmé ce vendredi lors de son témoignage livré au troisième jour du procès.

Le chanteur américain aurait décidé de mettre en place ce stratagème après avoir appris la grossesse d’Aaliyah. Âgé de 27 ans à l’époque, R. Kelly (54 ans aujourd’hui) craignait d’être poursuivi par la justice et aurait donc choisi d’épouser la chanteuse tout en modifiant sa date de naissance.

À travers ce mariage, R. Kelly avait une autre idée en tête. Dans le viseur de la justice pour exploitation sexuelle de mineurs, corruption, travaux forcés et enlèvement, le chanteur pensait qu’épouser Aaliyah allait empêcher cette dernière de témoigner contre lui. La jeune fille aurait donc fait partie des victimes de l’artiste.

Son manager, Demetrius Smith, avait pourtant déconseillé à R. Kelly d’épouser la jeune fille. « Elle était trop jeune », a-t-il déclaré devant le tribunal new-yorkais. « Il m’a demandé dans quel camp j’étais », a affirmé l’ancien collaborateur de l’artiste, originaire de Chicago.

Le mariage avait été annulé en 1995 lorsqu'il a été découvert que la jeune fille avait menti sur son âge sur le certificat de mariage. Ses parents avaient dénoncé le « rapt » de leur fille à l'époque. Aaliyah, dont le premier album « Age Ain’t Nothin’But A Number » avait été produit par R. Kelly, est décédée en août 2001 dans un accident d’avion. Elle était âgée de 22 ans.

R.Kelly est connu des services de la justice américaine depuis bien longtemps, les premières accusations contre la star ayant émergé durant les années 90.

Le site américain BuzzFeed avait aussi révélé en juillet 2017 que l'artiste américain serait à la tête d'un « temple sexuel », dans lequel six jeunes femmes, vivant recluses dans ses propriétés de Chicago et d'Atlanta, seraient chargées d'assouvir ses désirs.

MORT DU PERE DU « SUDOKU »

Maki Kaji, l'homme qui a popularisé le Sudoku en lui donnant son nom japonais dans les années 1980, est mort à l'âge de 69 ans, a annoncé sa maison d'édition.

« Kaji-san, connu comme l'homme qui a donné son nom au Sudoku, était aimé par les amateurs de puzzles du monde entier », peut-on lire sur le site de la maison d'éditions Nikoli, qu'il a fondée.

Il est mort le 10 août d'un cancer des voies biliaires, peut-on lire dans le communiqué.

Le concept originel du jeu, le Carré latin, a été inventé au XVIIIème siècle, en Europe, par un mathématicien suisse, Leonhard Euler.

La version moderne, différente en raison de sa subdivision en neuf carrés de neuf cases, a été découverte au début des années 1980 dans un magazine américain par Maki Kaji, qui l'a alors importée au Japon.

Trouver un nouveau puzzle est « comme trouver un trésor », avait déclaré M. Maki à la BBC en 2007.

C'est lui qui lui a donné son nom japonais Sudoku, contraction de la phrase « les chiffres doivent être seuls », dont les deux caractères chinois peuvent être traduits par « nombres solitaires ».

Le jeu s'est répandu de par le monde lorsque Wayne Gould, un juge retraité de Hong-Kong, amateur de jeux de patience, a décidé en 1997, après avoir découvert le Sudoku au Japon, d'écrire un programme informatique générant des grilles de Sudoku.

WHY THE OBAMA'S HAVE SNOBE

HARRY AND MEGHAN ?

Barack Obama's birthday party, given on Saturday August 7, 2021 has caused quite a stir.

And in particular on the absence of the couple Hary and Meghan at the reception.

Many celebrities were present for this party, which took place in the property of the former presidential couple of Martha's Vineyard, in Massachusetts: in particular Steven Spielberg, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, John Legend, Bradley Cooper, Alicia Keys , Tom Hanks or George Clooney.

"In normal times, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should have been at the center of any list drawn up by the Obamas," royal columnist Camilla Tominey assured the Telegraph.

Could the couple have been sacrificed on the altar of the pandemic due to the context of the spread of the Delta variant?

We know that the former US president had to skim his guest list.

But from there to suppress the Duke and Duchess of Sussex !

According to crowned journalist Angela Levin, Meghan Markle "desperately wanted" to participate in this evening, especially since she was born on the same day as Barack Obama, on August 4.

Meghan wanted to validate her entry into the very closed world of progressive celebrities in the United States. Didn't Meghan always publicly support the former president?

And yet neither Barack nor Michelle saw fit to invite the princely couple. According to the author who revealed this information, the "oblivion" of the Obamas is no accident.

First, the Obamas would obviously not have appreciated the attitude of the princely couple who openly attacked the royal family in the interview with Oprah Winfrey.

"It certainly did not go well between a couple who have always put family first, and a couple who so openly criticize members of their own family," said Camilla Tominey. Criticism directed at the royal family clashes with their view of the family.

"If the Obamas had to choose between the two brothers, they would choose William, that's for sure," says the specialist.

In addition, the former president and his wife would not wish to offend Queen Elizabeth A question of image too, Barack and Michelle having been advised not to show off too much with Meghan and Harry, so as not to be involved in their conflict with the British royal family.

Finally the Obamas would have had enough of Harry and Meghan wanting to copy their course at this point. Since the start of their exile in California, the Sussexes have in fact signed contracts with the same communication agency as the Obamas, concluded an agreement with Netflix, just like the Obamas, and Harry will publish his memoirs at Penguin Random House, where the former president had published his.

And ironically, the recent launch of an initiative by Meghan to support the return to work of women after the pandemic would be directly inspired by the concept chosen for Barack Obama's birthday party!

An inspiration that would not have pleased the predecessor of Donald Trump at all in the Oval Office ...

According to journalist Camilla Tominey in The Telegraph, the Sussexes' attempts to "ape everything the Obamas have done" since leaving the royal family would "have endangered their once special relationship." The former presidential couple would have simply snubbed them.

FINALLY A HOPE FOR FREEDOM

FOR BRITNEY SPEARS

Three weeks after the princess of pop's passionate plea, a Los Angeles court on Wednesday authorized Britney Spears to choose her own lawyer to represent her at the next hearings concerning her guardianship, report several American media, such as the New York Times and the Huffington Post.

The popstar also spoke, for the second time, in court, saying she wanted to attack her father for "guardianship abuse," according to CNN and Sky News.

Mathew S. Rosengart new lawyer for the popstar

Samuel Ingham, the lawyer assigned to Britney Spears by a court a few months after the star with the shaved head attacked a paparazzi in 2007, has asked to be removed from his post. The financial management company that was to take joint control of Britney Spears' fortune with her father Jamie did the same. These requests were validated on Wednesday by Judge Brenda Penny, in charge of the case.

The latter also approved the request made by Mathew S. Rosengart, a famous Hollywood lawyer and former federal prosecutor, to represent the popstar. According to a source familiar with the matter at the New York Times, he should adopt a “more aggressive strategy” and “put pressure to end the supervision”.

He announced on Wednesday that he planned to ask a Los Angeles court that the tutelage of the singer, which deprives her of a large part of her autonomy, be withdrawn from her father "as soon as possible". "We will file a request as soon as possible to remove Jamie Spears" from this role, as implored by his daughter, said Mathew S. Rosengart.

The 39-year-old singer was placed under guardianship in 2008, after a highly publicized descent into hell at the time. The conditions are very strict and stipulate that the decisions concerning her are taken in particular by her father Jamie Spears with whom she has long had difficult relations.

"P ***** cruelty"

“I would like to attack my father for guardianship abuse. I want to sue my father today. I want an investigation to be opened about him, ”she said, bursting into tears between several of her sentences.

The Gimme More interpreter then listed all the abuse she suffered, assuring that she was prohibited from taking hair vitamins or drinking coffee. "Ma'am, if it's not abuse, it's just fucking cruelty," she said, in tears, to Judge Brenda Penny, before s' excuse "for his language". “But it's the truth,” she added. “I thought they wanted to kill me (...). If it's not being abused, I don't know what it takes, ”she continued, despairing of the“ fucking cruelty ”of this procedure.

The Mississippi native explained that she wanted the guardianship to stop without having to pass a medical exam. However, she explained that her priority was to oust her father from his role by allowing Jodi Montgomery, her co-tutor, to stay until the tutorship ends.

The singer has also received massive support in the pop world, from her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, to Christina Aguilera or Madonna. The #FreeBritney movement has seen a resurgence in popularity with the release of the documentary Framing Britney Spears, which traces the life of the icon. Will Britney Spears ever regain control of her personal and professional life?

The fight is not over, but Britney Spears welcomed the decision. "We are moving guys ... we are moving," greeted the star on social networks, filming himself doing the wheel on a lawn, as a celebration.

BRITNEY SPEARS FORCED TO STAY

UNDER THE TUTORSHIP OF HIS FATHER

California judge Brenda Penny rejected Britney Spears' request to remove her father Jamie Spears from the cotutelle, which he exercises with a professional tutor, set up in 2008 following his psychological disorders, depriving her of a great deal of care. part of its autonomy, especially financial, report this Thursday the American media. At least for the moment.

A moving testimony

A little over a week ago, Britney Spears broke the silence as she spoke in court to explain to the world how the tutelage she has been under for thirteen years was a nightmare.

Trapped, the star explained in fact that she could not make any decision, neither professional nor personal.

She therefore wished that this would stop, and that her father was no longer her legal guardian. To do this, Britney Spears proposed that a wealth management company take charge of its supervision.

"I just want to take back control of my life, it's been thirteen years and that's enough", launched the pop star who spoke, at her express request, during a hearing conducted via the Internet. "I really think that this guardianship is abusive, ”she said.

"I told the world that I am happy and that I am doing well" but "I am traumatized", added the artist of 39 years. “I'm not happy, I can't sleep. I'm so angry, ”she insisted, ensuring“ cry every day ”.

"I want to be able to get married and have a child"

"I want to be able to get married and have a (third) child", she continued, assuring that she had not been authorized to have her IUD removed, implying that it was to force her to continue. to work.

Her guardianship covers both the management of her wealth and her career, which her father, Jamie Spears, and a financial institution now co-manage, but also her personal life, under the control of a professional guardian, in particular responsible for liaising between Britney Spears and the doctors who follow her.

Another hard blow

Despite this shocking testimony that moved the whole world, justice decided to leave Britney Spears under the tutelage of her father who, for his part, assured to do everything possible on his daughter and leave her complete freedom regarding her personal life. However, the Bessemer Trust asset management company was to be involved in the management of this supervision. Unfortunately, that won't be the case. Singer Iggy Azalea, who collaborated with the Toxic singer on the track Pretty Girls, in 2015, claimed that she had personally witnessed the actions of her father and the hold he had over the popstar.

"It is basic human decency that at least one person is taken out of one's life whom Britney has identified as abusive."

Not normal

Britney Spears testified clearly during her hearing of the abuse she claims to be a victim of, including an IUD that she is forced to wear to prevent her from becoming pregnant, when she wants to have a child. She also accused her father of making her sign contracts under threat and at the last minute, including to renew her residence in Las Vegas, which was submitted to her as she left the stage. "Jamie Spears is used to having documents signed under duress, it seems, and Britney Spears should not be forced to coexist with this man when she has made it clear that this is having a negative impact on his sanity. This is not normal at all, ”concluded Iggy Azalea.

The next hearing about Britney Spears' guardianship will take place on July 14 and could change everything.

BRITNEY SPEARS TRAUMATISEE BEGINS CALIFORNIAN JUDGE FOR "ABUSIVE" TUTORSHIP

She waited 13 years to speak out !

On Wednesday, singer Britney Spears begged a judge to lift the guardianship that has been imposed on her since 2008 following psychological disorders, and which deprives her of her decision-making power and her autonomy.

Driven by requests to log in from reporters and fans of the #FreeBritney movement, the Los Angeles superior court website, which offered an audio stream of the audience, could not resist.

"I just want to take back control of my life"

"I just want to take back control of my life, it's been thirteen years and that's enough,"

said the pop star, speaking, at her direct request, in an internet hearing.

Her guardianship covers both the management of her wealth and her career, which her father, Jamie Spears, and a financial institution now co-manage, but also her personal life, under the control of a professional guardian, in particular responsible for liaising between Britney Spears and the doctors who follow her.

Britney Spears spoke uninterruptedly for more than twenty minutes, with an extremely fast flow and by chaining the arguments to ask the judge Brenda Penny to lift this judicial measure which does her, according to her, "more harm than good ".

"I really think that this supervision is abusive", she launched. "I told the world that I am happy and that I am doing well" but "I am traumatized," added the 39-year-old artist. “I'm not happy, I can't sleep. I'm so angry, ”she insisted, ensuring“ cry every day ”.

"I want to be able to get married and have a child" "I want to be able to get married and have a (third) child", she continued, assuring that she had not been authorized to have her IUD removed, implying that it was to force her to continue. to work.

Descent into hell

Britney Spears was placed under guardianship in 2008 after a high-profile descent into hell at the time. The conditions of this guardianship are very strict and provide that the decisions concerning her are taken in particular by her father, Jamie Spears, with whom she has had a long difficult relationship.

These arrangements have been hotly contested in recent years, and Britney Spears’s lawyer recently asked the court to replace Jamie Spears with the professional guardian who is currently co-managing her case with her father. The singer criticized the attitude of her family, including her father, on Wednesday. "My family didn't do anything at all," she said. Her court-appointed lawyer, Samuel Ingham, had previously said in court that the singer was "afraid of her father," but this is the first time she has made such outrageous remarks in public. In a brief statement read in court, Jamie Spears said he was "sorry to see her in such pain" and said he loved his daughter "very much".

Although occasionally featured on social media to keep in touch with her fans, the star has so far refrained from publicly discussing her guardianship or difficult relationship with her father. She told the judge on Wednesday that she did not know she had the right to ask for the measure to be lifted.
A long battle However, according to court documents cited by the New York Times, Britney Spears has repeatedly expressed strong opposition to the terms of her trusteeship regime. "She said she felt the guardianship had become an oppressive check against her," a forensic investigator in charge of the case wrote in a 2016 report.

According to the report cited by the daily, Britney Spears informed the investigator that she wanted to end this guardianship regime as quickly as possible. "She's 'fed up with taking advantage of her' and says she's the one who works and brings in the money but pays for everyone around her," the document continued.

The New York Times, for example, assures us that under this guardianship the singer must pay not only her own legal fees but also those, quite considerable, of the guardians who contest her claims in court. The #FreeBritney campaign All this controversy has only revived the #freeBritney ("free Britney") campaign orchestrated in the streets and on social networks by some fans, convinced that the singer is kept against her will under supervision and that she is sending appeals using coded on his Instagram account.
Several dozen of them were in court Wednesday to show their support for the idol.

Welcoming Britney Spears' speech, the judge indicated that the latter must now formally request the lifting of her guardianship, and that her appeal would be examined at a later date.

She will also have the right to thank her lawyer who had been imposed on her, and will be able to hire the counsel of her choice. A beginning of freedom....

But what was the Canadian singer doing in the corridors of the Élysée on Monday, June 21 ?

Visiting Paris at the beginning of summer, Justin Bieber was seen in several restaurants in the capital, it seems that the interpreter of Baby and Peaches has managed to play his contacts to invite himself to the Élysée Palace !

According to BFM TV, the singer "himself asked to meet the President of the Republic". Also according to the channel, the interview took place in the afternoon and they discussed issues relating to youth.

A request accepted by the presidential couple, especially since the day was devoted to the Music Festival, and artists like Jean-Michel Jarre were busy in the courtyard.

Justin and Hailey Bieber were therefore treated to a small private visit, followed by a photo in the president's office. They would also have spoken of questions around the theme of youth, without the conclusions of the discussion having been revealed. Justin Bieber shared a photo from the meeting to his 179 million Instagram followers that immediately went viral!

This is not the first time that such a celebrity has been received at 55, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. We remember Rihanna, in July 2017, greeted by Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte about the financing of the Global Partnership for Education, a humanitarian fund for which the singer from Barbados is the ambassador.

THE BISEXUALITY OF PARIS JACKSON

NOT ACCEPTED BY HER FAMILY

Paris Jackson lifted the veil on his private life on Jada Pinkett Smith's podcast “Red Table Talk”.

While she unveiled new details about her childhood last April, against Naomi Campbell, the daughter of Michael Jackson will speak again this Wednesday, June 16, 2021, in the show of Jada Pinkett Smith "Red Table Talk".

For the occasion, it is Will Smith's daughter, Willow Smith, who conducted the interview with her friend.

They share many common points:

well-known and exposed parents, their love for music and fashion, and their bisexuality of which they speak openly.

Alone and excluded

On this subject, Paris Jackson revealed that she did not benefit from the support of her family.

Indeed, the Jackson are very religious, close to Jehovah's Witnesses and homosexuality is a taboo subject.

“They don't like to talk about it, it's really not accepted. I got to a point where I respect them, I love them, I respect their beliefs, their religion.

But now that would mean I would expect them to put their culture and religion aside. What people think of me is not my problem ”.

Prince and Blanket Jackson's sister came out as a bisexual teenager.

And if the 23-year-old says she could count on the support of her brothers after her coming out, she nevertheless confides sometimes feeling "excluded". “There are times when it was really difficult. We feel alone. We feel excluded, ”she explains.

A coming out from 14 years old

More than once, Paris Jackson has spoken publicly about her sexuality that she refuses to name. At only 14 years old, the young woman came out by affirming her belonging to the LGBTQ + community. So when a journalist asks her in 2018 if she is bisexual, she answers bluntly:

"That's how you say it, so I guess so, but who needs the label?" "On her Instagram account, the young woman then made a point:

“I have publicly spoken of the LGBT + community as being my own. I talked about my crushes on girls in my interview for Rolling Stone. There are pictures of me kissing girls on the Internet. Why do people today say this is news?

Before continuing:

“And I'm not bisexual. I just love people for who they are. I'm not putting a tag on myself, so please don't put a tag on me. Thank you ! "

Despite this, Michael Jackson's daughter is working for her well-being. She also returned to her suicide attempts. “What do you think caused this emotional spiral”? ”Willow asks her.

" A little bit of everything. Not knowing who I was, being a young girl going through puberty, a lot of things related to my situation. The pressure was tough and I was depressed.

But, years later, I can say that I am very grateful that I did not succeed. Things have improved ”.

Years have passed and the daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe is thriving while remaining true to her personality. “Today I can dress and act the way I want, it doesn't change how I feel inside.

As long as I'm me, I can be more feminine, I can be a tomboy. I can do anything as long as it looks like me, ”she concludes.

WHY KIM KARDASHIAN LEFT KANYE WEST

In the last episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians", broadcast on the American channel EI, Kim Kardashian explained the reasons why she decided to end her marriage to Kanye West.

Indeed last February, the American press announced the separation between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, after seven years of marriage and four children.

The reality TV star is said to have applied for joint custody of her children, and is expected to keep their residence located in Hidden Hills in Los Angeles.

The conversation between the star and her mother Kris Jenner, filmed by the cameras of the show in the final episode which ends 20 seasons of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians", is very illuminating on this subject.

“I didn't think I felt alone.

When I turned 40 this year I was like 'no I don't want a husband who lives in a different state'. "

"These are the times we got along best, and I find that sad.

I want someone who I can watch shows with, someone who wants to play sports with me.

It's the little things that I don't have. "

I have all the great things [...] But I think I'm ready for the smaller experiences, ”she explained to her mother, Kris Jenner.

THE CHAOTIC PRIVATE LIFE OF ELON MUSK

In 2010, Elon Musk said he would rather "stick a fork in his hand than write about his private life".

And yet the boss of Tesla and SpaceX, over the years, has opened up here and there about his childhood, his parents and his relationships.

Elon Musk made some confidences in particular in an in-depth interview in Rolling Stone, published in November 2017 evoking his painful break-up with his ex-girlfriend Amber Heard, or his estranged relationship with his father Errol, calling him a "terrible human being" .

Already from his childhood Elon Musk struggled against loneliness "'When I was a child, there is one thing that I said", he says. 'I never want to be alone.' ".

A student at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada where he met his first wife, Justine Wilson, then at Wharton School, in the United States, the boss of Tesla started working on his first startup and Justine has started working on her first novel after graduation.

She said Elon Musk wooed her by giving her her credit card so she could buy as many books as she wanted.

The couple married in 2000. Then moved to Los Angeles where they had a son named Nevada, who died suddenly after birth and eventually twins and triplets - five sons in total. In 2010, Elon Musk said his children were 'the love of his life'. The couple separated in 2008.

The tech mogul then married actress Talulah Riley in 2010 to divorce two years later. Elon Musk tweeted to Talulah Riley: 'It was four amazing years. I will always love you. You will make someone very happy one day. ' Today he loves Canadian singer Grimes for her 'wild artistic creativity and super intense work ethic'.

On May 4, 2020, Elon Musk announced the birth of their son, whom he and Grimes named 'X Æ A-Xii Musk', apparently pronounced 'X Ash A-12.
