Emma Stone Wins Oscar for La La Land

La La Land was without a doubt one of the main winners of last night’s Oscar Awards ceremony. And Emma Stone, the female star of this movie, was also one of the winners. Emma won the Oscar for her great performance in La La Land and actually this was no surprise.

So, it was widely expected that Emma would get an award at the Academy Awards ceremony. Emma was, naturally, very emotional, and she tearfully accepted the award. Of course, Emma was nominated for Best Actress alongside some powerful names in the industry, including Natalie Portman, Meryl Streep, Ruth Negga and Isabelle Huppert.

In her acceptance speech, Emma thanked all her close ones for their support. “I realize a moment like this is a huge confluence of luck and opportunity and so I want to thank Damien Chazelle for the opportunity to be part of a project that was so special and once in a lifetime,” Emma started her speech.

“I’m so grateful to have been involved in this film and thank you for your faith and your patience and such a wonderful experience, and Ryan Gosling, thank you for making me laugh and for always raising the bar and for being the greatest partner on this crazy adventure,” the beautiful star went on to add. Emma also kept her modesty and said that there are still a lot of things she has to learn.

“I still have a lot of growing and learning and work to do and this guy is a really beautiful symbol to continue on that journey. And I’m so grateful for that,” the talented actress concluded. Well, Emma’s speech was surely an emotional and beautiful moment, and there is no doubt in the fact that the actress deserves all the appreciation for her amazing performance.

The movie itself, La La Land, was much appreciated and won a series of awards at the Oscars. It got the award for cinematography, directing, but also for production design, original song and original score. Ryan Gosling, who starred with Emma in La La Land was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor, but the award finally went to another star, Casey Affleck.

Uber starts investigation following sexual harassment claims

Uber has surely been shaken up by a now popular blog post shared by a former company employee, Susan Fowler. The post has raised a lot of media attention and also a lot of criticism for Uber. The former worker, a company engineer, said that she was sexually harassed by her direct supervisor and that although she reported the misconduct to the human resources department, her complaint was ignored.

After the post became viral, Uber’s CEO Travis Kalanick decided to launch an internal investigation into the allegations. He asked the company’s chief of human resources, Liane Hornsey, to conduct an investigation, saying that the allegations contravene Uber’s standards and vision.

“I have just read Susan Fowler’s blog. What she describes is abhorrent and against everything Uber stands for and believes in,” the statement said. “We seek to make Uber a just workplace for everyone and there can be absolutely no place for this kind of behavior at Uber — and anyone who behaves this way or thinks this is OK will be fired,” it added.

Well, it appears that not only Uber reacted to the post, but some company investors did the same. Mitch and Freada Kapor, who have been investors in the company since 2010, claimed that they have unsuccessfully tried to determine the company to address diversity issues. “We are speaking up now because we are disappointed and frustrated; we feel we have hit a dead end in trying to influence the company quietly from the inside,” the two said in a blog post. “We are disappointed to see that Uber has selected a team of insiders to investigate its destructive culture and make recommendations for change. To us, this decision is yet another example of Uber’s continued unwillingness to be open, transparent and direct.”

Another Uber investor, Chris Sacca, also criticised the company following the worker’s post. The company has not directly responded to this criticism for the moment. It is yet to see what its investigation will find and how Uber will manage and overcome this scandal that seems to evolve.

New Exhibit Diana: Her Fashion Story shows the Princess’ Most Iconic Outfits

Of course, Princess Diana will always remain in the history of the world, as well as in the minds and hearts of all her fans. The star had always impressed with a unique style and a simple elegance. Now, fans will be able to admire her most iconic outfits, during a new exhibit, Diana: Her Fashion Story. The exhibit will be available at the place that has become well-known as Diana’s former home, of course, the Kensington Palace.

In this exhibit that officially starts on February 24 fans will see no less than 25 impressive outfits of the famous princess. And of course, they will also be able to discover the reasoning for some fashion choices that Diana made. “What you see in the exhibition is a real evolution of the princess’s style,” one of the reps for the exhibition said according to People.

“You see that New Romanticism of the early ’80s and all the frills and ruffles that were fashionable at the time, but you see through the course of the display the princess really getting a sense of her own style . . . to this fantastically glamorous, self-confident stylish woman,” the statement added. The same statement explained that initially, Diana had very limited clothing choices.

However, her style had grown and she “learned what would work in a public capacity. She had a great design eye and a real knack for fashion. Although she wanted to focus on her work, she wanted to use fashion to help that.” Of course, the exhibition also includes the famous so-called “Elvis dress” that Diana wore to the British Fashion Awards.

Diana also decided to abandon the practice of wearing gloves all because she wanted to be closer to people. “She abandoned the royal protocol of wearing gloves because she liked to hold hands when visiting people or shake hands and have direct contact. She also stopped wearing hats because she said, ‘You can’t cuddle a child in a hat.'” Diana’s style also changed following her divorce from Prince Charles and this aspect can also be easily noticed at the exhibit.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Moving in Together?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are no longer a married couple, but it seems that there may be place for a reconciliation. According to some new rumors, the two stars might be trying to make things work. So, it has been revealed that Ben actually moved back in with Jennifer.

The news were reported by Radar Online, which indicated that Ben has returned home to his former wife and his children. Ben and Jennifer actually have three children together. The rumors that Ben was moving back home were actually reported at a curious time. The speculation emerged as it is believed that Jennifer was finally going to file the official divorce papers from her estranged husband.

Radar Online shared some photos of the two famous actors at their home in Pacific Palisades. The report indicated that there was also a construction crew there, who was trying to help empty the guesthouse of all the belonging that were there. Most of the things are believed to be Ben’s. The report claimed that the reason why this was happening is actually linked to the stars’ intentions of renovating the guesthouse into a play area for the children, while Ben was moving back in.

A source talking to the celebrity site claimed that this is actually all that Jennifer wanted, as she was never in favour of divorcing her husband. “This is what Jen has been praying for!” the source explained. “She never wanted a divorce, but felt she had no other options. Finally, Ben has sobered up enough to come home. The kids are thrilled Daddy is finally back. The three of them – and Jen – are only hoping that this time it’s for good.”

Previous reports claimed that Jennifer was upset with Ben because he decided to move out. The reports also claimed that despite this, the two stars remain committed parents and their children will remain their priority. Of course, the claims have not been confirmed and actually a confirmation is not expected in the near future. Ben and Jennifer have always remained quite private and avoided addressing such rumors.

Jennifer Lopez talked during this recent interview with Ellen about her songwriting relationship with Drake, but also about the claims that have been made about her personal life when it comes to the aspect of her dating young men. Well, as always, Ellen was very direct and asked J Lo if she spent Valentine’s Day with Drake.

“No, he’s off on tour right now,” Jennifer Lopez said. The famous singer went on to add that “we did a song together.” As imagined, Jennifer could not get away that easily. So, Ellen went on to ask the star about a photo of her and Drake looking quite cozy. In the picture, Jennifer is seen sitting on Drake’s lap. “We were not writing a song right at that moment. We were just hanging out,” Jennifer explained when being asked about the pic.

Of course, the star did not confirm the rumors that she was dating Drake, but put all the focus on her professional collaboration with the rapper. “Actually he sent me a song that he wanted me to be on, and then I got on the song, and yeah, we have a song together,” Jennifer explained. However, there is one thing that Jennifer wanted to address.

The star talked about the claims of her having a preference in dating younger man. “I don’t date young men,” the star said. “It’s not like you have to be younger, it’s not about that. You just meet people and if I go out with them, I go out with them.” Jennifer said that it is all about the person, not the age. “It’s just about the person. It’s about who they are, it has nothing to do with age.”

Samsung’s Vice-Chairman Arrested in Corruption Probe

Samsung is surely dealing with a lot of issues lately. The famous tech company’s Vice-Chairman has been arrested on allegations of participating in a corruption scandal. The arrest came as a surprise. So, authorities accused Lee Jae-yong, the son of Samsung’s ailing chairman, of giving $36 million in bribes to obtain government support for company projects.

Allegedly, the money were paid to President Park Geun-hye and a close friend in order to get support for the company from local authorities. Samsung was willing to obtain approval for a leadership transition and a merger of two Samsung companies.

According to several reports, the case shows that the largest family-run businesses in South Korea are largely politically influenced. Well, the arrest also raised questions of what will happen to Samsung next. Furthermore, some even raised questions of what will happen to South Korea’s economy, considering that the country relies on companies such as Samsung for jobs and taxes.

However, some analysts said that Samsung’s business will actually not be affected at all by this evolution. And without a doubt, this is not the first such scandal for the tech giant. Lee’s father also had to deal with some allegations and he was actually convicted for embezzlement and tax evasion in 2008 and 2009. Lee’s father, Lee Kun-hee, stepped down from the role of chairman after being indicated. Most likely, his son will also resign from his position.

Samsung and Lee Jay-yong denied all the allegations brought forward by prosecutors. The allegations against Samsung first emerged at the end of 2016. In November 2016, South Korean prosecutors decided to raid the offices of Samsung and one of its subsidiaries on concerns of paying bribes to the daughter of a close person to the President Park Guen-hye. Then, the investigation was expanded to the merger of Samsung C&T and Cheil Industries, with authorities seeking evidence to determine if any law was broken in the case. It has suspected that Samsung bribed some officials to get approval for this merger.

Lee Jae-yong was initially questioned in relation to the case and only later prosecutors decided to arrest him.

Boris Becker Talks about Australian Open Final

Boris Becker is surely a famous name when it comes to the world of tennis. The star has just decided to talk about the final of the Australian Open and he definitely had some interesting things to say. The final was a nice moment for all tennis fans as it brought together Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal is an interesting and powerful five sets match.

According to Tennis World USA, Becker claimed that Federer and Nadal’s success at this tournament has actually sent a message to the best tennis players at the moment, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. “Before the start of the Australian Open, everyone had been asking where do they go? After the tournament they have shown that they go to the very top,” Becker explained. “They showed some real drive and sent a message to Djokovic and Murray saying they are coming back. The way Federer played in Melbourne, it goes on to show that there is more to come and that is true for Nadal also.”

Becker also claimed that Nadal could have great chances in winning the upcoming tennis tournament. “He is the favourite to win Roland Garros, it’s clear that he can aspire to everything. It’s good for tennis that Rafa cameback.” Becker also claimed that most likely Nadal will continue to work with Toni and a split will not occur at this point.

Becker praised Federer for his amazing talent and the fact that he managed to achieve the unexpected record of winning 18 Grand Slams. He claimed that despite the huge achievement, Federer actually made everything look so easy and effortless.

“His elegance and classy way of achieving it is something that not many sportspersons will be able to replicate in future. A few months back the question was when will Novak equal and cross Federer’s Grand Slam record but now suddenly the question has changed to whether he can do it,” Becker said.

He also explained that what makes Federer play and be so determined is the fact that he is still managing to win. “The more he wins, the more he will want to play.”

Kanye West Suffered from Amnesia Following his Breakdown

There is no doubt in the fact that Kanye West has been dealing with a lot of issues for quite some time. Of course, the most debated such issue has been linked to the star’s hospitalization last year. Kanye had back then a very public breakdown and required immediate hospitalization.

After spending a few days under treatment, the star was released from hospital and definitely seemed that he was doing much better. Well, now it has been revealed that Kanye actually suffered from amnesia following his mental breakdown. And that may not be all. Kanye is still dealing with these issues, although several months have passed since his hospitalization back in November.

One of the star’s friends claimed that Kanye is still dealing with memory loss. The revelation was actually made on the red carpet by Malik Yusef, a longtime collaborator of the famous rapper. “I’ve been to his house [and] sat down with him for about six, seven hours, just walking through his health and recovery,” Malik explained. “His memory is coming back, which is super good. [He’s] just healing, spending time with his family,” he went on to add.

In a way, Malik also dismissed the rumors indicating that things were going better for Kanye. He explained that the famous musician is not working on new music, although this is something that has been rumored for quite some time. Kanye West has not addressed the rumors about his health until now, so it is yet to find out if he will share any comments in the future.

However, what seems to be certain is that Kanye is keeping a lower profile and the star has also decided to distance himself from Donald Trump, although he previously showed a lot of support for the US President. Meanwhile, it has been reported that Kim has mostly been in charge with Kanye’s schedule and she is actually overseeing everything that he does, to make sure that he will be fine.

A previous report claimed that Kim is acting as his manager and Kanye is doing nothing without her approval.
