Pink Invited to Army Ball By Female Soldier
Cultural appropriation does not equal solidarity. You want to support Muslim womens causes around the globe, then go and support the groups working around real initiatives or write a letter to the Prime Minister dont wear a shinny burqa and call it controversial or supportive. At the end of the day , French officials couldnt care less and women are still fined for wearing niqabs and burqas. So, after this rant that I have been holding on to since Ramadan, I am still wondering: When do we realize that controversy for the sake of profit is not really transformative? An Interview with Haldol and Hyacinths author Melody Moezzi Sobia Ali-Faisal I like this critique but I dont completely agree with the criticism of MIA. Although shes not Muslim shes also not white. I think that complicates things a little. Also, considering the niqab is something that is present in her culture (Sri Lanka/South Asia) cultural appropriation might not be whats going on. Sure her money place her in a position of privilege which many (most) Muslim women dont have, but she is still a racialized person. For example, I read somewhere that she is often /usually pulled aside at American customs still, despite being famous.

Pretty, pretty please itd be so amazing to take a fellow girl from Pennsylvania with me. Wehr, who wants to take the 33-year-old singer to her units welcome home ball at Fort Bliss, Texas, in December, is hoping the fact that her hometown of Barnesville, Pa., is near Pinks hometown of Doylestown and that Pinks father is a Vietnam vet, will help sway the singer. I know shes a supporter of our brothers and sisters in arms, past and present, she told the Army Times . Wehr said that although she is gay and has long had a crush on the singer, she extended the invite out of her respect and admiration for Pink. Ive always loved her music and her attitude, because shes truly like no other female artist, Wehr told the publication. Pink is already spoken for. Shes married to motocross racer Carey Hart, and they have a 2-year-old daughter, Willow. Pink is also a vocal supporter of gay rights. She recently tweeted, Fun fact: when you twitter me and say youre a lesbian it really doesnt bother me at all. Its a compliment. Most of my fav ppl are. The singers rep did not respond immediately to ABCNews.coms request for comment.
Think – and Drink – Pink This October at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale
The sunset, served with cocktails at the Hamptons Paddle and Party for Pink, was variously described as rose gold, salmon pink, and very pretty. We guess if one is invited to Richard and Lisa Perrys Hamptons home, even Mother Nature follows suit. Trendsetters also following the colorful direction includedSusan Harrison, Elena Castaneda, Randi Shatz and even Lisa Perry herself, all cloaked in various shades of blushing gowns. Martha Stewart, however, opted to wear a blue tunic and white slacks. But then, any woman who makes her own honey lavender ice cream need take orders from no one. The fundraiser began that morning when about 150 partygoers raced on paddle boards in Sag Harbor. Breast cancer survivor and event co-chair Maria Baum explained that she found great spiritual solace in paddle boarding during her own diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Were not sure that everyone found quite the same amount of solace more than one person described their experience with the phrase, I was really hung over. It may have helped that legendary surfer and founder of stand-up paddle boarding Laird Hamilton was there to balance the boards. I think everyone indirectly or directly is affected by breast cancer, he said. Taking part in todays race means a lot to so many people.
The man has not been named but is said to be in his 40s, of Montenegrin origin. He apparently escaped earlier this year from a Swiss prison. French police said he was arrested at his home in Montpellier, as he tried to escape through a window. His arrest follows a string of major thefts in Cannes, in southern France, but it is not clear if there is a link. The Pink Panthers are an international band of jewel thieves, many of whom hail from the Balkans, who are known for their daring robberies and burglaries. They are thought to have stolen over 250m euros (215m) of precious stones over 10 years. The arrested suspect is a former French legionnaire. He is said to be one of five men who broke out of the Bois-Mermet prison, near Lausanne in Switzerland, in May. At least one other of the escapees was thought to be a member of the Pink Panthers. Another member of the gang escaped from a Swiss prison last month. The Pink Panthers were given their name when police in London made an arrest in 2003, and found a diamond ring hidden in a jar of face cream – a ploy used in the original Pink Panther comedies starring Peter Sellers.
‘Pink Panther’ Jewel Heist Robber Arrested
The 47-year-old, born in Montenegro but with French and Macedonian citizenships, was detained at his home in the southern Montpellier region on Monday, a police source said. The suspect, who had been on the run since escaping from a Swiss prison in May, tried and failed to escape through a window at the time of his arrest, the source said. A former member of the French Foreign Legion, the suspect is wanted in several countries, including under two international arrest warrants issued by Switzerland, where he had been in prison for armed robbery. He and four other prisoners escaped from the Bois-Mermet prison, near Lausanne, on May 14, using weapons and tools passed to them from accomplices on the outside – two have since been recaptured, the other two are still free. The gang emerged from the war in the former Yugoslavia to become the most successful jewel thieves in the world. According to Interpol, they have, since 1999, snatched jewels with a value in excess of 330m (281.5m) in heists that are often executed with breathtaking speed and precision. Among the latest robberies carried out were two in the South of France. A lone gunman walked into the world-famous Carlton Hotel in Cannes and stole diamonds worth nearly 90m from an exhibition. In another raid in the same town, two gunmen held up a luxury shop and left with goods valued at up to 1.3m. The gang gained their nickname with a raid on a London branch of Graff Diamonds in 2003, in which two of them posed as wealthy would-be customers, persuading staff to open doors for them before helping themselves to diamonds worth millions. Although one of the robbers was overpowered at the scene and another later arrested, only a fraction of the diamonds were recovered, one of them hidden in a pot of face cream.
