Rihanna Names ‘Stunning’ Actor She’d Cast In Her Own Biopic: ‘I Want To Be Her’

Rihanna Names ‘Stunning’ Actor She’d Cast In Her Own Biopic: ‘I Want To Be Her’

[ad_1] Rihanna knows exactly who she’d want “to pretend to be me” in a biopic of her life. The Grammy winner appeared visibly touched by the question when asked on the red carpet of her Fenty Hair launch event and presumably realised, like the rest of us, that her rise from pop star to billionaire cosmetics mogul would make for an interesting project. “Taylor Russell,” the We Found Love singer told E! News. “You know why? ’Cause she got, like, a nice forehead.” Rihanna added of the Bones And All star: “She’s, like, fly. And I feel like I want to be her, so I want her to pretend to be me. I want people to see me in that light.” While the biopic in question remains merely hypothetical at this point, Taylor has already proven herself a worthy contender, winning the Marcello Mastroianni Award at the Venice Film Festival for her performance opposite Timothée Chalamet in Bones And All, at the age of 27. Taylor has yet to publicly comment on the shoutout and …

Indian election results in stunning setback to Modi and his BJP party

Indian election results in stunning setback to Modi and his BJP party

[ad_1] NEW DELHI — Indian voters have delivered an unexpected repudiation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership as electoral tallies Tuesday showed his Hindu nationalist party falling short of a majority in Parliament, piercing the aura of invincibility around the most dominant Indian politician in decades. While Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party finished first and is still well positioned to form a government with its allies in the coming days, the BJP’s performance paled in comparison to its showing in 2014, when Modi swept to power on a wave of national anger over corruption, or 2019, when he was buoyed by nationalist sentiment over a border clash with Pakistan. The shock result sparked feverish celebrations among India’s opposition parties and marked a rare setback for an Indian politician who had never failed to secure a majority in state or national elections over a 23-year political career. As prime minister for the past decade, Modi has cultivated an image as a popular strongman and a serial winner, and most political analysts had expected him to easily brush …

AI system can predict the structures of life’s molecules with stunning accuracy – helping to solve one of biology’s biggest problems

AI system can predict the structures of life’s molecules with stunning accuracy – helping to solve one of biology’s biggest problems

[ad_1] AlphaFold 3, unveiled to the world on May 9, is the latest version of an algorithm designed to predict the structures of proteins – vital molecules used by all life – from the “instruction code” in their building blocks. Predicting protein structures and the way they interact with other molecules has been one of the biggest problems in biology. Yet, AI developer Google DeepMind has gone some way to solving it in the last few years. This new version of the AI system features improved function and accuracy over its predecessors. Like the next release in a video-game franchise, structural biologists – and most recently – chemists have been waiting with impatience to see what it can do. DNA is widely understood as the instruction book for a living organism but, inside our cells, proteins are the molecules that actually carry out most of the work. It is proteins that enable our cells to sense the world outside, to integrate information from different signals, to make new molecules within the cell, to decide to …

Watch Tyla Get Carried Up The Met Gala Steps In Her Stunning Dress

Watch Tyla Get Carried Up The Met Gala Steps In Her Stunning Dress

[ad_1] Tyla’s incredible outfit at this year’s Met Gala may have been a stand-out on the night – but it turns out it wasn’t the easiest to get down the red carpet in. On Monday night, the Water singer made her inaugural appearance at the Met Ball, where she took an unusual approach to the night’s “Garden Of Time” theme by dressing as the sands of time, complete with a statement clutch bag that bore resemblance to an old-fashioned egg timer. But while the South African star’s dress certainly made for stunning pictures as she posed for photographers outside the event, it definitely wasn’t one that was designed with stairs in mind. In fact, for Tyla to get anywhere, she needed a few hands on deck – and one viral clip shows that she even needed to be lifted up some steps to get into the event at all. Tyla told Vogue on the red carpet: “We were looking to do something creative, something completely different for my first Met Gala. So when Balmain showed …

Stunning, But ‘Mad Max’ Prequel Is No ‘Fury Road’

Stunning, But ‘Mad Max’ Prequel Is No ‘Fury Road’

[ad_1] The first reactions are here for George Miller’s latest venture into the post-apocalyptic wasteland. The embargo broke for social media reactions to Furiosa, the eagerly anticipated prequel to the 2015 stunner Mad Max: Fury Road. This new entry has Anya Taylor-Joy as Imperator Furiosa (taking over for Charlize Theron) and Chris Hemsworth as a devious warlord in a story that takes place 15 years before the previous film. Early social reactions can sometimes be a bit different (typically more enthusiastic) than official critic reviews, and surely there are many more to come soon. But based on the first batch Monday evening, Furisoa is a visual stunner with “ferocious, wild and unrelenting” action and a story that “spans decades,” with strong performances from the two leads. Those who compare the film to Fury Road, however, did so with a bit of qualification. Furisoa is in “a different gear” and “won’t match Fury Road’s splendor” in a way that “might frustrate” some audiences. One critic said Furiosa felt more like the first two Mad Max films …

“Stunning On Multiple Levels”: DOJ Admits To Evidence Tampering In Trump Classified Docs Case

“Stunning On Multiple Levels”: DOJ Admits To Evidence Tampering In Trump Classified Docs Case

[ad_1] Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team admitted on Friday that key evidence in Trump’s classified documents case was altered or manipulated – leaving two different chronologies; one that was digitally scanned vs. what’s in the actual boxes. Smith also misled the court, after originally telling U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon that the boxes remained “in their original, intact form as seized,” when in a footnote they conceded that they removed classified documents and left placeholder sheets, which prosecutors acknowledged has created an “inconsistent” record – in which some of the documents are no longer in the same order as they appear in digital scans made in the fall of 2022. “The Government acknowledges that this is inconsistent with what Government counsel previously understood and represented to the Court,” the footnote reads, according to Just the News. The finding comes after Cannon ordered a review into whether the FBI may have seized legally privileged records in response to a request from Trump co-defendant Walt Nauta. “Since the boxes were seized and stored, appropriate personnel have had …

These stunning close-up photos offer a window onto the world of bees

[ad_1] A bee from the genus Euglossa, also known as orchid bees Pete Carr Photography FEW insects (or even animals) hold quite as much sway on the planet as bees. As pollinators that flock from flower to flower, crop to crop, they keep the world’s flora and biodiversity thriving. And yet, thanks to a myriad of deadly factors, such as pesticides, habitat destruction and climate change, thousands of species are teetering on the brink. A violet carpenter bee (Xylocopa violacea) Pete Carr/National Museums Liverpool A new exhibition all about these vital creatures, Bees: A story of survival, provides an immersive window on their world, from the intricate anatomy of a single bee to the structure of entire colonies.
