Natalie Portman Boycottes Israeli Award Cermony

Published

on

The Jerusalem born Oscar-winning actress refuses to accept this year’s Genesis award at the ceremony that was meant to take place in Palestine in June, leading to the cancellation of the whole event, altogether. The dual Israeli-American passport carrier expressed her “distress” over the horrific abominations carried out by the Israeli army against the Palestinians through her representatives; “recent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her and she does not feel comfortable participating in any public events in Israel.” Portman’s representatives added “she cannot in good conscience move forward with the ceremony”.

The Genesis prize aka the “Jewish Nobel Prize” awards a $1 million grant every year to those who “inspire others through their dedication to the Jewish community and Jewish values.” Portman however, was set to receive $2 million. After the ceremony was cancelled, the foundation stated that it “remains deeply committed to this year’s philanthropic theme of advancing women’s equality” and that it intends to “start announcing our first grants to women’s rights organizations this spring.” adding that it still sees Portman as a “highly accomplished actress, a committed social activist and a wonderful human being.”

That wasn’t the end of it. Israel’s culture minister took to twitter to express her disdain over Portman’s decision “I was sad to hear that Portman fell like a ripe fruit into the hands of BDS supporters” wrote Miri Regev “A Jewish actress, who was born in Israel, is joining those who see the story of the success and magic of the establishment of Israel as ‘a tale of darkness and darkness,” she added, referring to Portman’s 2015 film A Tale of Love and Darkness, which the actress both directed and starred in.

But what could’ve suddenly changed Portman’s mind after all this time? Could it be that she finally paid attention to the inhumanity & savagery that’s been taking place for decades? The actress didn’t explain at first, which lead to people assuming that she was referring to recent massacres happening along the border with Gaza; at least 30 dead Palestinians were left dead after they were shot by the IDF.

However, Portman later then elaborated “My decision not to attend the Genesis Prize ceremony has been mischaracterized by others. Let me speak for myself. I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu.” The actress added “I am not part of the B.D.S. movement and do not endorse it. Like many Israelis and Jews around the world, I can be critical of the leadership in Israel without wanting to boycott the entire nation. Israel, was created exactly 70 years ago as a haven for refugees from the Holocaust. But the mistreatment of those suffering from today’s atrocities is simply not in line with my Jewish values. Because I care about Israel, I must stand up against violence, corruption, inequality, and abuse of power.”

Naguib Sawiris has always surprised us with his generosity, and just a few days ago, he proved it once again! Only to be met with a shocking response.

It all started when a man tweeted asking Sawiris if he would pay the expenses of sending his mother to ‘Hijj’ and Sawiris agreed and replied with the nicest tweet ever!

Shockingly, the man then deleted his tweet and denied Sawiris’ offer because of ‘religious reasons.’ !!

We can’t believe it that till this moment, there are still people with such a closed minded mentality.

What’s heartwarming is that Sawiris is still trying to convince him to take the money and make his mother happy.

We’re used to Sawiris interacting with his followers but that’s just a whole new level.

Our Favorite Star Suffers Nearly Fatal Overdose

Demi Lovato

We have all heard about our favorite celebrities battling eating disorders throughout history, but the worst case of food disorders we’ve witnessed by far is Demi Lovato‘s case.

Demi tells the press that she accidentally fell back into her past eating disorder which led to her nearly fatal overdose. Demi has been battling eating disorders and drug abuse for years. Supposedly, she was getting better and was finding stable grounds, but little did she know that she was getting worse.

The singer of hit song “Confident” made a powerful comeback at the Grammy Awards 2020 with her new album “Anyone“. Her newest album is claimed to be very dear and sentimental to her because, this time, she’s hoping to show her true self and colors in this album. “This is going to be the first album in which I genuinely don’t care about what people think of me,” said Demi.

Demi’s relapse occurred this Friday, which she openly talks about on one of Ashley Graham‘s episode discussing her newfound sense of body positivity. She tells Ashley how she’s extremely tired of running herself to the ground doing workouts 6 times a week as well as following extreme diets that end up wearing her down and stressing her out rather than make her feel good about herself.

Stressing out about your body image specifically is one of the hardest battles a person could overcome. While Demi was said she’s been doing fine, it turns out that is far from true.

Since Demi has been worrying about her body and trying to take care of it, she accidentally overdosed on the 18th of February, leading her quite close to death. She’s been clean and sober for a while now but just couldn’t take the pressure! Documents haven’t stated exactly what drug had she overdosed on, but that doesn’t matter as long as she’s healthy and alive.

It is said that this isn’t the first time Demi had overdosed. One of her very first overdoses was back in 2016 when she was sent to rehab for being diagnosed with both a bipolar disorder and also bulimia. She’d gone to rehab for around 3 months and soon healed after that and went back to her career as if nothing had ever happened.

Demi urges people to understand that she’s neither an alcoholic nor a druggie, she’s just fighting a severe internal battle. She states that once she started breaking and eating again in huge quantities, her other issues like drug abuse came back stronger than ever.

For the time being, Demi Lovato is healthy and well and that’s all that matters to us. She’ll be taking things slow and she’ll do a better job at loving and excepting herself, which is what her new album is trying to shed light on.

Do you think that body imaging and bulimia are serious mental illnesses that need to be addressed in the best way possible, or is this all a way of gaining exposure? I don’t think Demi would joke about such an issue.
