Ufa Morgenshtern rapper, known for his controversial antics, has once again found a way to draw attention to themselves. At a party in honor of the birthday of Yegor Creedwith which the artist not only close friends, and records joint tracks, Morgenstern during the greeting of the birthday boy climbed onto the stage and pulled down his pants, showing everyone present the white boxers, and performed a few of their songs.
However, it is necessary to note that the creed, like the rest of those present, appreciated the trick of Morgenstern, supporting him with loud whistling and applause. But fans of the artist watching on Instagram, suggested that Morgenstern goes through alcohol, and advised him to temper his outrageous.
In the Peru of the late 1980s, plagued by civil war and inflation uncontrolled, Georgina, a woman from the centre of the country, part give birth in a clinic in Lima where he promises free health care. But his baby is removed at birth, and the officials of the dispensary volatilize, leaving her without recourse. After being met with the indifference of the authorities, this young woman without education, driven by her only maternal instinct to contact Pedro Campos, a journalist, who goes to investigate and uncover a vast traffic of children to international adoption.
A quest for truth and justice
For this first film is aesthetically very marked, noticed at Cannes during the directors ‘ Fortnight in 2019, Melina Leon crossed the path of two individuals moving to the margins of society. She is poor and illiterate, he is a homosexual and condemned to satisfy his desires in the underground. This unlikely alliance between the forsaken is going to be born of a quest for truth and justice, the victory, symbolic, turns out the bottom is ridiculous. Inspired by real facts reported by his journalist father, the filmmaker sheds light into this beautiful film is a painful page of his country caught between the atrocities of the shining Path and the bloody repression of the government, in a never-ending cycle of violence.
The first victims of this conflict are the most vulnerable, seems to say the director, in particular poor women, like Georgina, lost in the shuffle of a power that ignored and betrayed by their husbands. In a very graphic black and white, the director encloses his characters in a square format, thus amplifying the feeling of tightness that hugged. Formed in New York, Melina Leon has sought formal inspiration in Europe, in the middle of the side of Bela Tarr or the Russian Andrey Zvyagintsev. An aesthetic bias which does not preclude the strength of this story to unfold and affect us.
“I am the last of the great/You can bury the other. “ The assertion, taken from the song False Prophetcan seem arrogant. Bob Dylan proves yet once again, with his new album, Rough and Rowdy Ways, he hovers above the fray.
At 79 years of age, his 39e studio album demonstrates an appetite to live and create undisturbed. His songs, always impressive, deep, resonate broadly in this double disc more blues than rock, autobiographical.
A tone intimate, but without the melancholy
Rough and Rowdy Ways (” How brutal and ostentatious “), a title which came from country music, is his first album of original songs since Tempest, eight years ago. Meanwhile, Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 2016 “for the creation of new poetic expressions, in the great tradition of the american song “. Equal to itself, it is, solid as a rock, or rather “like a rolling stone” – Like a Rolling Stone – of which the music moves forward without ever freeze.
“I sing songs of experience/I sleep with the life and death in the same bed/I paint landscapes and I paint nudes/I contain multitudes. “ A raspy voice which has gained in sensitivity what it has lost in power, Bob Dylan speaks to those who listen – for some sixty years ! the confession of a man who has a lot lived in I Contain Multitudes. The blues close to the trance, sang close at hand, a melody with a clear, sets the tone, intimate but without the melancholy of the album of the maturity.
Over each song, this inspiration culminates in Crossing the Rubicon, the pace swung between blues and slow and beautiful bass line reminiscent of “Watching the River Flow. Of a phrase, caressing, almost light, the ” Zim ” says : “Three miles from purgatory/A not before the hereafter/I prayed to the cross, I kissed girls and I have crossed the Rubicon. “
From bluesman Jimmy Reed to president Kennedy
In the meantime the great passage, the life illuminates his songs with infectious energy, tinted with humour, burning desires. It offers a waltz is a sweet song lovers My Own Version of You, quoting Shakespeare and the Apocalypse. Unchanged on Goodbye Jimmy Reed, it enlightens riffs harmonica this tribute sensual and tonic, a bluesman from Mississippi, whose style inspired it.
“Many parties/Many that I knew “, sings Bob Dylan, naming these missing persons who are part of his life. Starting with president Kennedy, which he narrates 17 minutes of the assassination in Murder Most Foul, protest song the title drew in Hamlet, of indignation intact. But also his friends the poets of the Beat Generation, “Ginsberg, Corso and Kerouac “, jazz musicians, from Charlie Parker to Stan Getz, or even Marilyn Monroe, the Rolling Stones, Anne Frank and Indiana Jones, the fictional character taking life mysteriously under his pen.
Elvis Presley and Martin Luther King are found in the hymn Mother of the Muses. “Man, I could tell their stories all day ! “, (” I could talk about them all day “), launches Dylan of his voice inimitable laid on choir gospel songs. He finds the same inspiration tinged with mysticism, in Key West, referring to the immortality on ropes meditative.
The death of George Floyd, ” beyond the horror “
This spirituality that underpins his work, with the highlights of the visit were Slow Train Coming and Savedthe singer reaffirms in an interview given on 12 June New York Times, in which he regrets that the gospel, “music of the good news “, become so rare in a dark current. “Good news in the world today, it is a fugitive, treated in out-of-the-law, put to flight. Severely punished, he says to the historian Douglas Brinkley. The gospel, this is exemplary. It can give you the courage, you can lead your life according to his message, or to try in any case. And you can do it with honor and righteousness. “
“Honour and righteousness “, this is what Bob Dylan has always required of his country. At the time of the struggle of Black americans for civil rights, his songs set the tone : George Jackson, Desolation Row, Only a Pawn in Their Game, The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll, Hurricane… All denounce racial hatred. This commitment to a life is confronted today with the murder of George Floyd choked by a white policeman in Minneapolis. “It made me sick to see him thus tortured to death. It was beyond horror “, entrust Bob Dylan at the New York Times. Still to bright in the face of injustice, he thinks to write a song for George Floyd.

It all started with Charles Aznavour. Shortly before his death in 2018, the singer was having a coffee with Emmanuelle Béart. ” He looked at me straight in the eyes, confides the actress, and he told me : You, girls, you may not have inherited the artistic heritage of Guy and nothing to do ! You need to take it back ! Made a tribute album and I’ll sing There is more after” “. “There is a party 4 days before recording “laments Emmanuelle Béart, who with her sister Eve, jewelry designer, and her husband Frédéric, Chaudier, director, has completed the double album outgoing today, waiting for the integral (1).
The Seine goes, the song of farewell Souchon
For Guy Béart, craftsman demanding, mastering the art of beautiful words and melodies both simple and very subtle, many artists who have responded to this, to begin with “ its great buddies “, Voulzy and Souchon. “ Souchon was beautiful ! On the phone to me, he sang all the songs of my father for half an hour “says Emmanuelle Béart.
→ TO READ. Off, Guy Béart is gone…
He wanted to interpret Of the moon, who remembers, but Maxime Le Forestier, also an old friend,” has persuaded him to leave “. Souchon then seizes The Seine goes, moving song of farewell. ” If it is necessary that you partes/So go, my friend/day-where we come from/The start is promised…”.
Over the reunion and recordings, memories come. “ My father was a nuisance, that, everyone has said “, smiled the actress. Christophe, in a last recording before his death on 16 April 2020, does sparkle You (it’s you) ina version simmering and enigmatic.
The younger generationjoined the project, revealing itself to be the heir of Guy Béart. Clara Luciani chooses Song for my oldtitle remained in the shadow. Apple offers Those who are in love, one of the 300 songs of Beart that his daughters didn’t know about. The young singer sketch, almost a capella, this romance, making it vibrate to its agreements to slow of a spiritual dimension unexpected.
Who to replace Aznavour ?
Vincent Delerm resumes with sensitivity, the first successful Béart, Ball at Time. Akhenaten mixes his rap with the voice of Béart in Who am I now Who are we ? Angelique Kidjo swirled The colors of the time. Catherine Ringer (that Beart admired), Brigitte, Carla Bruni, Ismaël Lô, the group Hollydays, Raphael, etc… are the part. With Thomas Dutronc, Julien Clerc or Yaël Naïm (The living water), Emmanuelle Béart sings in a duo, and takes only Never.
Rest There is more after. Which for the ballad immortalized by Juliette Gréco, that wanted to Aznavour ? The grandson of Guy Béart, aged 11, finds the solution :” He sings like Grandpa young ! “, lance-t-il, hearing Vianney radio. “Vianney is a troubadour like my father. There is in him something very reserved, humble and the maturity of an old man. What it does is very touching “.
For Emmanuelle and Eve Béart, who have asked the interpreters “ do more than ask their voices to melodies, to seize, to move the song through their body to see how it sounded, shoving arrangements… “this double album is a way of finding their father. A father very popular of the time when he had hosted the program “Welcome” of the ORTF (1966-1973), receiving home Johnny and Louis Aragon, Duke Ellington, Simon & Garfunkel… But also a hypersensitive to the difficult nature left by the success of his living. “ It was always between sweet nostalgia and wild hope. I was ashamed sometimes of this character an anarchist, if somewhat formatted. It became less and less audible. He was not, but for us, her girls, it was unbearable “says Emmanuelle Béart.
Of the father “ bossy and sharp-edged, very discreet, enigmatic “still the words, the poetry, the songs that her daughters will resound to better understand it. “ Its trajectory was clear that his words remain. His joy was to be sung in schools. “
Hope Babkina only recently discharged from the hospital after a serious illness. The 70-year-old singer was hospitalized with severe pneumonia. And although the tests did not show in her coronavirus, friends of the artist are sure that she became a victim of a pandemic. Nadezhda Georgievna spent several days in a coma, on a ventilator, with a pipe in her throat. After such a procedure, the voice is restored far from immediately – it would seem that there is no time for singing. But Babkina did not break the long tradition and on May 9 sang the song “Victory Day” for fans. She shared the video on Instagram.
– Happy Victory Day, friends! – congratulated the artist subscribers.
The singer’s voice after illness has not yet gained full strength, but her colleagues at the Russian Song Theater came to her aid. Together they sang the famous hit in honor of the Great Victory. In the general sonorous chorus, Nadezhda Georgievna’s voice sounding with a slight hoarse sound is easily guessed.
The artist filmed the video in her house near Moscow, where she wakes up after discharge from the hospital.
“About 80% of the lungs were affected … Everything covered with film and dragged on there: it’s such an infection, it manifests itself very quickly and starts to work,” Babkina told of her illness.
Before discharge, computed tomography showed that Nadezhda Georgievna still affected 40% of the lungs. During rehabilitation, doctors prescribed her a special course of treatment (pills and injections) and breathing exercises. Babkin goes to the nearby Lapino hospital for procedures. By the way, another star patient who underwent coronavirus, Stas, was also treated in it. Mikhailov.
According to doctors, it can take a long time to restore the voice after such a disease: after a coronavirus and mechanical ventilation, it may not be able to listen to the patient for a long time, it sounds dull and hoarse.
– This is due to a change in the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract and cough. A prolonged cough has always been considered one of the risk factors for the formation of voice disturbance, ”saidKP»Phonator Ekaterina Osipenko. – How big the risk is depends on the severity of the patient’s condition, his presence on the ventilator. Patients who underwent tracheotomy – an operation to install a tracheotomy tube for long-term mechanical ventilation, also have a risk of voice changes in the future.
Happy Victory Day, friends! @rpfolk # Nadezhdababkina #Russian song #HymnWinning
Olga Buzova’s next venture provoked a new flood of popular anger. The leading singer angered the Russians with her appearance. But the public has not forgotten the scandalous tricks of the TV star, when she, sitting in a swimsuit at the table, licked a plate with the words “I’m a blockade.”
Olga Buzova on the occasion of May 9, I decided to talk about the feat of my great-grandfathersthan incredibly inspired her fans. However, then she began to publish photos and videos on which posed in a military uniform with bright makeup with a cap on his head. The artist threw a nurse’s handbag over her shoulder, and held a dandelion in her manicured fingers.
Olga Buzova went to the forest for a bright photo
“May 9th is the main, holy date in the life of each of us. This is a day of immense pride in the feat of true heroes who, without sparing life, defended our Motherland! We will forever keep in our hearts the memory of their courage! Thanks to you, we live 75 years under a peaceful sky! Tears of happiness for the Great Victory pour out of my eyes and tears of grief for those who are gone … “, reads the caption to the photo.
Wherein take off gold and platinum bracelets Buzova did not guess. Or did not consider it necessary. She read the poem Wind of War by Stepan Kadashnikov in memory of those killed at the front, and then presented with her boyfriend David Manukyan a cover for the song “Cranes”.
This finally infuriated users of the social network. They began to leave indignant messages, recalling the actress and the recent scandal with the blockade, and the glamorous Mother of God, and embarrassment at Epiphany.
Cranes.Premiere cover, 2020
“They don’t go to make-up in the war!”, “Show-off!”, “What are you doing again?”, “Have you tried any less makeup?”, “Why are you doing carnival on this day?”, “I made up and came to the forest for a photo “,” Cheap masquerade “,” This is called Spanish shame when she does it, but we are all ashamed “,” Very funny, you need to remove the bracelets, “the fans are indignant.
We are for peace … For love … May the war never return again …
Olga never responds to criticism and indignation of fans. Her favorite hate phrase: “The dog barks, and the caravan goes.”
Olga Buzova: from a cleaning lady to a millionaire.Who doesn’t know Buzova? Everyone knows Olya. Some love her, while others hate her. Sometimes it seems that there is simply no one indifferent to the ex-participant of “House-2” …
Nadezhda Babkina on May 9 will certainly perform Victory songs. This time thousands of spectators will not applaud her – we celebrate the main holiday in self-isolation mode. And Nadezhda Georgievna herself is recovering after a serious illness, therefore she saves herself – there will be concerts, but later. But “Victory Day” will certainly sound in the house of the national artist. We tell how Babkina regains her health after being discharged from the hospital.
Recall that Nadezhda Georgievna was hospitalized with pneumonia, for almost a month we were worried about her health. The treatment required the introduction of an artist into a coma, Babkina coped, doctors saved the life of Nadezhda Georgievna – and now she is already at home. The situation was very serious. Nadezhda Babkina told about the course of the disease in Let They Talk, immediately after hospitalization and computed tomography of her lungs, she was transferred to intensive care:
“About 80% of the lungs were affected … Everything covered with film and dragged on: it’s such an infection, it manifests itself very quickly and starts working …” Later, the artist found out that at some point the situation became very serious: “The question was acute at the time the kidneys stopped working. Why? Details did not tell me. Probably it was scary, there were a lot of problems with me … “
Before discharge, CT showed that lung damage, according to the singer, decreased to 40%. Now Nadezhda Georgievna is not in a Moscow apartment, but in her country house in the suburbs. Therefore, she goes to special Lapino hospital for special physiotherapeutic procedures to restore lung function and rehabilitation. At discharge, the artist was prescribed home recovery (for 20 days): pills, injections – the artist tells her colleagues what she can do herself. Doctors ordered Babkin to do breathing exercises.
Nadezhda Georgievna says that the exercises are not easy, they are dizzy after them, but the artist is not lazy: she does it every day, because it’s important for the profession to restore the lungs as soon as possible. “Since we are singing, I have light accordions (squeezed – unclenched),” Babkina communicates with her colleagues and friends over the telephone — her voice is normal.
Nadezhda Babkina walks a lot – she lives in a country house (the singer was taken to the hospital from her Moscow apartment), and she came to rehab for fresh air outside Moscow. The actress is accompanied by a nurse Allochka – now the first assistant to Nadezhda Georgievna. “A beautiful little girl, Allochka, looked after me in the hospital, as though she was young, and hands like sledgehammers — I think all four will fall down. And she dragged me. From the bed to the toilet (I couldn’t walk). And – night is not night, she just lived with me, ”Babkina got used to her nurse. And Allochka went to her house – to help recover.
She goes to physiotherapy with her son, and Assistant Allochka is always nearby at home. Civilian husband Yevgeny Gor also raises spirits – he and his Hope have been 17 years old.
“He protects me, worships!” – the artist praises her Zhenya. There is something to praise – Gore kept the defense of journalists for a month: not a single interview or comment on Babkina’s health until she wrote out. Immediately after Nadezhda’s discharge, Eugene breathed a sigh of relief, and even cut himself off for joy! The precautions for self-isolation in this family are followed very strictly. Now Babkina even before washing her hands washes: he touches his face only with clean hands.

The house has a special lamp that disinfects the air. The device for air disinfection in the rooms of Babkina was presented for an anniversary – even before the illness. Now come in handy! In March, Nadezhda Georgievna celebrated her 70th birthday; she is going to celebrate lavishly in the fall, when they are allowed to hold events. For the anniversary, the singer lost 23 kg in three and a half months: food was delivered to her ready diet. And in the hospital she dropped it again: I didn’t want to eat. Now she eats fully: as she began to recover she suddenly wanted sauerkraut.
Nadezhda Georgievna is not bored at home: the collective of her theater “Russian Song”, like all artists on self-isolation, but Babkina is engaged in current affairs, in touch with her employees. In the hospital, I didn’t communicate with anyone from friends: only with relatives, and when I got better, I watched TV. But now it receives calls and congratulations, we can say that with a second birth. Babkina says that she gave herself the command not to be afraid, to completely trust the doctors as soon as I entered the hospital: “When I looked in my eyes Shapovalenko Tatyana Vladimirov (the chief physician of the Medsi Design Bureau in Otradnoye – approx. Aut.) said that I believe you – my life is in your hands. ”
Recovery will not be quick – this artist understands, does not deny: no one knows yet – what consequences can be after an illness. But now there is more good news: according to the results of the analyzes, the doctors said that the immune system is restored.
Two million for treatment: Nadezhda Babkina will have a month of rehabilitation
The singer was in a private clinic (details)
“Almost 80% of the lungs were affected, there was an operation”: the first interview with Nadezhda Babkina after the illness
The actress told how Moscow doctors saved her (details)
The star of the folk song theater “Golden Ring” Nadezhda Kadysheva invariably delighted admirers of her talent with a well-groomed appearance. Intricate hairstyles, vibrant outfits, catchy makeup – at 60, the singer carefully monitors her stage image. Hope appears from time to time on the covers of glossy magazines, and on the posters of the Golden Ring theater she invariably shines with youth and beauty. What was the surprise of Instagram users when they saw fresh pictures of the artist without photoshop. In the photographs, Kadysheva looks very tired and sharply aged.
Dark circles under the eyes and an extinct look shocked the fans of the Russian folk song and made them worry. On the Web they discuss: is everything all right with the health of Hope, and does it hide some kind of illness? However, perhaps the artist in recent months has overworked – before Russia the pandemic seized, and all concerts were canceled, Kadysheva had a very busy tour schedule. Fans wish her health and hope that the artist will take advantage of the period of self-isolation in order to properly relax.
New photos of Nadezhda Kadysheva surprised her fans.
Instagram users compare Nadezhda Kadysheva with her colleague, singer Nadezhda Babkina. Nadezhda Georgievna is 10 years older than Kadysheva, but she looks much younger. Probably the whole thing is plastic surgery: Babkina does not hide the fact that the surgeon’s scalpel helped wipe her face for several years and extended her youth. She made a circular facelift and blepharoplasty, lifting her eyelids and removing wrinkles around her eyes.
With her husband and colleague in the ensemble “Golden Ring” Alexander Kostyuk Nadezhda Kadysheva has been living for 37 years – they got married in 1983. This is a rare example of family longevity in show business. At couples have an adult son.
The singer looks tired. Perhaps the reason for this is a busy tour schedule.
Doctors more than once saved the singer and literally pulled her out of the next world. At 30 years old her found a breast tumor, for two years she lived between life and death – Hope was sure that she would die from oncology. But during the operation, the diagnosis was not confirmed. The next time doctors saved the artist when she was 49 years old: he almost died of acute tachycardia. Doctors miraculously prevented a heart attack.
Nadezhda Babkina has been at home for 24 hours. The 70-year-old singer was discharged from the hospital, where she spent a month, on the eve of May Day. Nadezhda Georgievna decided to record a video for her fans, first introduced to the public after a serious illness.
Nadezhda Babkina left the hospital on April 30. The queen of Russian song was met by beloved Eugene Gore. Now the singer is at home, in a circle of relatives. All this time, while doctors fought for the artist’s life, the public sent health rays to their favorite. Ordinary Russians, friends of the star, as well as colleagues in show business did not hide that they prayed for Babkin.
The celebrity decided to appear before the public a few hours after discharge. She recorded a video in which she thanked everyone and called on to take care of herself and loved ones. Seems to be, Babkina not yet fully recovered from a serious illness. In the frame, she sits in an armchair. She is wearing a burgundy tracksuit.
“My dears, I am so glad that I can communicate with you and say the most sincere words of gratitude. Yes, I have passed the test. I don’t want to pass this to anyone. But who knows where this infection is and where it is attached to. You don’t have to find out “You just need to clearly follow the rules that were invented for us. My good ones, let’s take care of each other, understand, compassion and sympathy. The test is very difficult and difficult,” the vocalist addressed the subscribers.
The disease has changed Nadezhda Babkina
She noted that was able to get out thanks to folk love and prayers. “A terrible situation. But all the time I heard you call me, speak, support. I sincerely love you all, because my life is connected with you. I’m at home, recovering. I am grateful to the doctors who were always there,” added the artist. At the end of the appeal, she wished all health and sent a kiss.
Fans are very happy that their idol is finally at home. However, they note that the disease hit their pet hard.
“I’ve lost weight somehow. It seems that you’ve gotten very well,” “Do not be sick anymore. We were very worried about you!” , “Love you very much! “,” God, how poor I am, poor thing. Get better, please, “write excited followers.
Recall that Nadezhda Babkina was urgently hospitalized on April 1 in one of the capital’s clinics. The leader of the “Fashion sentence” was taken away from the apartment in the center Moscow in serious condition. Doctors diagnosed her with “bilateral pneumonia.” For a long time, the singer was in intensive care, she was introduced to a medical coma. After the singer regained consciousness, she ate through a special probe and breathed using a tracheostomy tube.
