Angelina Jolie’s First Instagram Post Is a Letter from a Young Afghan Girl

Angelina Jolie may have officially joined Instagram, but her first post is not what we expected. She used the social media platform to highlight the crisis in Afghanistan by posting a handwritten letter she received from a young Afghan girl. The letter, sent to her from Afghanistan, is one of fear – fear of the people losing their dreams, fear of losing their rights, fear of losing their freedom.

A dedicated humanitarian, Jolie was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador back in 2001, and has since then devoted a significant amount of time creating awareness on the global refugee crisis. In a powerful first post on Instagram, she tells the world why she joined social media after deliberately staying away from it, along with sharing what the letter said.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Are Reportedly Expecting Baby Number Two

When it comes to keeping her pregnancy a secret, Kylie Jenner definitely knows how to do it best. This time around, she may not be able to keep it under wraps for too long. For weeks, TikTok has been flooded with rumors of Jenner expecting her second child with on-again, off-again boyfriend Travis Scott. The reports come after fans suspected she was posting old photos, given her frequent nail art changes, followed by images of Jenner in loose clothing, and a recent photo of her sushi order that didn’t contain raw fish. While sources close to Jenner have confirmed the pregnancy to various entertainment dailies, the star herself hasn’t addressed the rumor.

Scarlett Johansson Welcomes a New Baby Boy

Scarlett Johansson and her husband Colin Jost just welcomed their first baby together on August 18, 2021. The couple kept their pregnancy a secret for as long as they could.

In true Jost style, he announced the birth of their son, Cosmo, on Instagram with a hilarious post. Although this is Jost’s first child, Johansson has a beautiful six-year-old daughter, Rose Dorothy Dauriac, with her ex-husband.

Travis Barker Takes His First Flight since 2008

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, boarded his first flight last week since his plane crash in 2008. 13 years ago, the private jet he was on crashed and killed four people, leaving Barker with third-degree burns on 65 percent of his body. Since then, the drummer has been afraid to fly. Barker spent nearly four months in hospitals, underwent 26 surgeries, and dealt with severe PTSD for years.

In the sweetest Instagram post, Barker shares a photo of himself and girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian outside Kylie Jenner’s private jet captioned, “With you anything is possible,” right before they flew off to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble.

Madame Tussauds Reveals Balqees Fathi as Its First Middle East Wax Figure

As the excitement builds for the opening of Madame Tussauds in Dubai, they have just revealed their first Middle East wax figure. Last week, Emirati-Yemeni music star, Balqees Fathi met her wax figure for the very first time at a special ‘side by side’ unveiling held in partnership with Madame Tussauds at Caesars Palace Dubai. A huge amount of craftsmanship has gone into making Balqees’ incredibly lifelike wax figure, which involved a team of Madame Tussauds’ sculptors traveling to Dubai to document 500 of her precise measurements. In London, they spent three months crafting the figure by hand and even inserting each strand of real hair by hand.

“I feel privileged to be the first Arab artist to stand side by side my wax figure at the iconic ‘Madame Tussauds Dubai’. I am overwhelmed with the incredible likeness that this wax figure holds to my physical appearance and to the impeccable attention to details that captures my personality. I cannot wait for people to visit Madame Tussauds and to finally be able to enjoy this unique experience in the Arab world,”  says the singer. Her figure will be among some of the most renowned celebrities and artists from around the world in the world making this a moment of pride for Fathi.
