A pseudo-lesbian pop duo, a famed opera singer and a romp through Russian history await viewers as the Sochi Winter Olympics launch Friday with an opening ceremony meant to showcase to the world the ultimate achievement of Vladimir Putin's Russia. In a provocative choice, Russian singers Tatu will perform before the 3,000 athletes march through a stadium on the shores of the Black Sea, one of the many newly built facilities in the most expensive Olympics in history. The women in Tatu put on a lesbian act that is largely seen as an attention-getting gimmick. It contrasts with the very real anger over a Russian law banning gay "propaganda" aimed at minors that is being used to discriminate against gays. Some world leaders and activists have protested the law, and President Barack Obama is skipping the opening ceremony and sending a delegation that includes prominent gay athletes instead.
An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.
For the last time, no, Sacha Baron Cohen will not be rocking you as Freddie Mercury. The 43-year-old prank-loving British actor, best known for onscreen alter egos such as Borat, and Ali G, was in 2010 attached to a biopic about the late Queen frontman, one of the most iconic rock singers of all time, who died at age 45 in 1991. Baron Cohen left the movie project in 2013. On Thursday, the band's manager, Jim Beach, sparked excitement among fans with some curious comments while accepting the Peter Grant award for outstanding achievement in managerial skills at the 2015 Artist and Manager Awards: He said Baron Cohen had returned to the project and would even do more than just star in it. Here's the catch: Beach was totally kidding.
Even the biggest pop stars can have a brain fart! Justin Bieber delivered quite the surprise Saturday night in Miami when he joined Ariana Grande on her Honeymoon Tour to perform a duet of "Love Me Harder." As he sang the parts originally performed by The Weeknd, Bieber accidently messed up a few of the lyrics because he didn't remember them completely. He told Grande while performing inside the American Airlines arena, "So I feel bad, I forgot the words Ariana,I've been trying to memorize them backstage for like an hour!"
A poll showed late on Sunday, British Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives have taken a four point lead over the opposition Labour Party on the eve of the start of official campaigning for a May 7 national election. The poll, by ComRes for ITV News and the Daily Mail newspaper, gave the Conservatives their largest lead in the polling series since September 2010.
Ellen Pao sued the famed, powerful venture capital firm Kleiner, Perkins Caufield & Byers for gender discrimination and retaliation, and lost that years-long public battle on Friday. A jury of six women and six men rejected Pao's claims that Kleiner Perkins discriminated against her because of her gender by failing to promote her and firing her. Pao, a former partner at Kleiner Perkins, sought $16 million in lost wages and punitive damages in a messy case that revealed the inner workings of an exclusive Silicon Valley institution. For many professional women both in and outside of the venture capital world, the suit was emblematic of sexist behaviors that, while often subtle, still haunt the American workplace.
