Watching the trailer for THE FIFTH ESTATE while I was catching a matinee of THE WAY, WAY BACK and bellowing out "Khan!!!!!!" when Benedict Cumberbatch came on the screen is something that amuses me for the day. It's simple, it's easy, it's not full of drama. And it gets random strangers who catch onto the joke to have a little giggle as well.
But apparently what's not so easy to enjoy or understand are all the popstars who have gone to perform for dignitaries in other countries, being paid ridiculously huge amounts of money and then conveniently claiming (after the check's cleared) they had no idea that there were political atrocities that their audience was the perpetrator of. That's a big part of what Jennifer Lopez is talking about in her interview with Cosmopolitan magazine as their October 2013 cover girl.
Lopez was the key attraction at Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov's 56th birthday and now she's backpeddling with the most common comment: "I know that being seen as a role model means taking responsibility for all my actions. I am human, and of course, sometimes I make mistakes." Role model, human, still makes mistakes... no mention in the interview if she gave the money back. Just curious. J-Khan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
