After her music video went viral in Egypt (and the Arab world), Shyma got attacked from everyone for her video’s sexual content.

“3andy Zoroof” was seen as as provocative and inappropriate. But it wasn’t just the wrath of social media that was out to get the new star: the Syndicate of Musical Professions also banned her from performing ever again.

Shyma posted an apology on her Facebook account, claiming that she “had no idea” that were sexual references on in video and that the production and direction team were to blame. She also apologized to her fans and the Syndicate, promising them that she will only stick to “true art” from now on.

Sir Derek Jacobi is getting married to his long-term partner.

The ‘Murder on the Orient’ express actor has been in a relationship with Richard Clifford for 40 years, and after entering a civil partnership in 2005, they are planning to tie the knot now that same-sex marriage is legal.

Derek said of their plans: “We are doing it because we want to.

“There’s no public reason. We love each other and we want to.

“We’re great friends, we support each other, whatever I’ve lacked he provides and vice versa. We just get on.”

The 79-year-old actor believes the key to his long relationship with Richard is humour.

He said: “A sense of humour is essential. You stay much healthier if you can laugh.

“A sense of end-up and not taking things too seriously, seeing the funny side of things… It’s a great help because it makes one less pompous, it takes the pomposity out of everything.”

The ‘Breaking the Code’ actor has known he was gay from a very young age, but never had any problems accepting his sexuality.

He told Gay Times magazine: “I knew I was different. I knew that as soon as I became a thinking creature.

“That to me was the deck I’d been dealt. That was fine. I accepted it and carried on.

“I didn’t fight against it. I accepted it and took what it offered.”

And Derek remembered feeling “relief” when homosexuality was part decriminalised in 1967.

He recalled: “I suppose like everybody I felt relief. I felt a sense of relaxation, of not having to be wary, a sense of acceptance of being part of the whole, which I hadn’t been before. I knew what I was and who I was.

“All my friends and family knew and that was it, you know.

“I suppose when it became legitimate that I could join the bigger family, that was a great relief and a great comfort.”

AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young has died after a long battle with dementia. He was 64.

“Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young,” the band’s official Facebook page said Saturday.

“Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC. With enormous dedication and commitment he was the driving force behind the band. As a guitarist, songwriter and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavored. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.”

“As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever. Malcolm, job well done,” Angus Young added.

The BBC said Malcolm Young is credited with writing some of the Australian heavy metal group’s most famous songs such as “Back in Black,” “Highway to Hell” and “You Shook Me All Night Long.”

Malcolm Young retired in 2014 after his dementia diagnosis.

How Would You Tan Thor’s Butt?

Chris Hemsworth had an “awkward situation” when producers discussed how best to tan his ass.
The 34-year-old actor – who has five-year-old daughter India, and three-year-old twin sons Sasha and Tristan with spouse Elsa Pataky – was left feeling uncomfortable when he had to strip naked on set while a group of people stood around him and debated the best method to give his butt a bronzed glow.

He said: “There was an awkward situation recently when I had to be naked for filming.

“Before we started shooting, there was a whole group of people standing round discussing the best method of tanning my ass and whether it should be rubbed in or sprayed on.”

Chris has to be very fit for his role in the Marvel Universe as Thor, and he admits it took a very “boring” workout regime because there was no way to get the physique he needed apart from eating right and lifting weights.

He said: “There’s no shortcut to getting the body I had for Thor. It’s all about a strict regime, heavy weightlifting and eating a lot.

“It’s actually pretty boring because it involves doing the same exercise over and over and you have to be in the gym rather than outside. My muscles were pushed to the limit to achieve that look, so I was pretty stiff and sore.

“My regular workout is more versatile, I think that’s the key for mental stimulation and for enjoyment too. I do a lot of boxing, Muai Thai and yoga, then I weave in weightlifting. As long as I’m fit enough to surf, I’m happy.”

To soothe his aching muscles, the Australian actor would get a massage at home, and use the sessions to bond with his kids.

He told Marie Claire magazine: “We usually have someone come to our house and when I’m lying there with my face poking through the hole in the bed, the kids sit underneath and we have a chat. It has to be a painful massage, one of those intense ones that really work out all the knots.”

Kim Kardashian West got through her Paris robbery ordeal with crystals.

The 37-year-old reality star – who suffered a terrifying experience when she was tied up and robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewellery from her Paris apartment in October 2016 – didn’t really “get” the New Age belief that the rocks have healing properties until recently but she has found them to be helpful.

She said: “I kind of got into healing crystals more recently. The last year, when I took about a year off after my whole Paris incident, everyone would come over and bring me healing crystals and I didn’t really get it at first.

“And then I really started to research it and Google it and a friend of mine took me down to this crystal warehouse in Culver City and it was just crystals everywhere and they explained what everything meant to me and it just clicked then for me.”

And the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star admitted the crystals had inspired her new fragrance, Crystal Gardenia, along with her late father Robert Karashian’s favourite scent.

She told ‘Extra’ presenter Mark Wright: “I wanted a bottle that… just looks and feels like a healing crystal, something that would be calming and have good energy for you…

“My dad’s favourite flower was gardenia so he would always have it… I just remember coming home from school and seeing this dish that he had right when you walked in and there was always gardenia flowers just floating in it and I loved when he had those.”

Meanwhile, Kim and her husband Kanye West – who have kids North, four, and Saint, 23 months, together – are preparing for the arrival of their third child via a surrogate and the blonde beauty admitted she hasn’t yet let it sink in how much harder it will be to juggle a larger brood.

She said: “I’m really excited for and scared for a new baby. I have half the people freaking me out saying how hard three is.

“I think you’re not thinking about it as much, especially when you’re in my situation because I’m not carrying the baby, so I think it’s just gonna hit me and I’m think I’m gonna freak the f**k out and be like, ‘Aaahhh, three kids,’ you know?”

Titanic, the Oscar-winning epic starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, is scheduled to return to some U.S. theaters for a week timed to the 20th anniversary of the film’s initial release.

Starting Dec. 1, the movie will be screened in Dolby Vision in 2D and 3D at various AMC theaters.

The blockbuster is a fictional love story set against the backdrop of the 1912 sinking of the luxury liner Titanic. Featuring Celine Dion‘s iconic ballad “My Heart Will Go On,” the film was released Dec. 19, 1997. It was nominated for 14 Oscars and won 11, including Best Picture.

“We mastered a few minutes of Titanic in Dolby Vision and I was stunned. It was like seeing it for the first time. Now that the entire film has been mastered, I’m excited to share it with audiences across the United States,” director James Cameron said in a statement Wednesday. “This is beyond 3D, beyond 70mm, it’s beyond anything you’ve seen before. The image leaps off the screen as bright and vibrant as life itself. This is the way all movies should be seen and without a doubt, Titanic has NEVER looked better.”

Sexual Allegations Cost Harvey Weinstein Honorary University Degree

Harvey Weinstein has been stripped of an honorary degree from the University of Buffalo.

The State University of New York (SUNY) board of trustees voted unanimously – with one abstention – to rescind the accolade granted to the 65-year-old movie mogul in 2000 after he was accused of multiple sexual assaults and harassments.

Kristina M. Johnson, SUNY chancellor, said in a statement: “Mr. Weinstein’s alleged misconduct violates the core principles upon which the university was founded and runs counter to the standards of mutual respect and professionalism that the university expects from all members of its community.

“Had the committee been aware of Mr. Weinstein’s alleged misconduct at the time it initially reviewed his candidacy, it would not have recommended that he be awarded a degree, because the misconduct alleged violates the principles upon which an honorary degree is based.”

Following the vote, officials at the University of Buffalo – which is a State University of New York education establishment – admitted they supported the actions of the SUNY board of trustees.

They said in a statement: “We at UB are collectively offended and disappointed by Mr. Weinstein’s alleged and admitted conduct.

“In seeking this revocation of the SUNY honorary degree, the University at Buffalo is also clearly stating that sexual harassment or sexual misconduct will not be tolerated.”

The Hollywood producer attended the University at Buffalo from 1969 to 1973 and was awarded the SUNY Doctorate of Humane Letters at a special ceremony in September of 2000.

He said at the time: “I’ve received some honors in my life. I’ve been lucky that way. But I can’t tell you how emotional this feels.”

Harvey – who has denied many of the allegations against him – has had his membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revoked, and he was expelled from the Television Academy – which is behind the Emmy Awards – following the allegations.

What’s more, his wife Georgina Chapman – who he has been married to for 10 years – has left him, and he has been fired from his position as co-chairman at The Weinstein Company.
