Arianna Huffington - A host of stars were photographed as they arrived for AOL 2015 NewFront presents AOL Unleash which was haled at the 4 World Trade Center in New York City, United States - Tuesday 28th April 2015
'12 Years a Slave' star Lupita Nyong'o was among the many stunning arrivals outside Carnegie Hall in New York where the 2014 Glamour Women of the Year Awards took place. She was her usual elegant self in an embellished, long-sleeved, white A-line dress with matching stilettos.
Hip hop artist Frank Ocean was photographed as he stood on the red carpet at the TIME 100 Gala held at Jazz inside the Lincoln Center in New York. The event was part of TIME's annual '100 Most Influential People In The World' issue.
This lively and engaging documentary may be set out like an informercial, but it teaches us about the drug trade with a pungent sting in its tail. The emphasis is on how America's War on Drugs has only made things worse, criminalising the wrong people and missing the whole point of the drug issue. It's a strong statement, made with passion, intelligence and a refreshing lack of political correctness.
"If the American Dream broke its promise to you, we have an answer!" This is how the film opens, informing us that the American population is the biggest market for marijuana and cocaine on earth. So keeping them supplied is a job that can't help but earn you a fortune as you climb from being a corner supplier to a local dealer to a kingpin to a cartel boss, all while learning lessons from cops and federal agents. And even working with them. Sure, there are dangers, including violence and prison, but the money you can make is worth the risk.
Obviously, this is deeply sarcastic. Telling stories are recounted on-screen by a wide variety of interviewees including activists like Sarandon and Harrelson, former dealers (Jackson), ex-addicts (Mathers, aka Eminem), cops, lawyers, scholars and even a TV series creator (The Wire's Simon). All of them point out the dangers of drugs as well as the fact that people use them because they feel good.

Socialite Arianna Huffington has been accused of causing irreparable damage to Julie & Julia producer Eric Steel's New York City apartment after renting the pad in 2011.
Steel claims he leased his two-bedroom Chelsea loft to the columnist in May, 2011, but when she vacated the residence in January (13), the walls had been stained, the wood floors scratched and the mattresses bloodied.
The filmmaker also alleges Huffington violated their rental agreement to serve as the sole occupant and damaged his custom dining room table, which was designed by his architect stepfather Charles Gwathmey.

When Stephen Colbert was awarded an 'Honorary Woman' certificate by Arianna Huffington, little did the American public realise just how far that 'joke' might run. Of course, there was a serious message behind the award, as Huffington wished to thank the satirist, in his own little way, for the work that he does in trying to enlighten the American nation about the plight suffered by its lady-folk. After all, women's rights are so much easier to explain when they are explained by men.
When Maxim magazine published its annual 'Hot 100' list, though, it became apparent that Stephen Colbert had been accepted as an honorary woman to an extent that no one initially thought possible. As you scan down the list of the world's most beautiful women - based of course, on an entirely subjective and thoroughly mystical point-scoring system - there, at number 69 (what other number could they possible have chosen) was Mr. Stephen Colbert himself. The 69th hottest woman on the planet. Maxim explained his inclusion on the list by saying "Democracy isn't always pretty: Sometimes it's downright handsome. With a massive write-in vote campaign, the Colbert Nation proved they're not only loyal but also incredibly horny."

Scarlett Johansson insists she will never go on twitter or Facebook because she wants her personal life to remain private and doesn't want to share every detail of her existence with the world.
Scarlett Johansson won't go on twitter because she wants to keep her personal life private.
The 27-year-old actress is determined to keep certain things in her life secret from the public and has made a decision to avoid social media sites to maintain her stance.
Speaking to Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington for Interview magazine, she said: "I don't have a Facebook or a twitter account, and I don't know how I feel about this idea of, `Now, I'm eating dinner, and I want everyone to know that I'm having dinner at this time,' or `I just mailed a letter and dropped off my kids.' That, to me, is a very strange phenomenon. I can't think of anything I'd rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life."

LATEST: George Clooney is fuming about comments attributed to him that appeared on US socialite/politician Arianna Huffington's blog. Clooney agreed to let Huffington use his thoughts and criticisms about America's Democratic party for her HUFFINGTON POST site, but had no idea his comments would be misrepresented. The angry actor says, "What she (Huffington) most certainly did not get my permission to do is to combine only my answers in a blog. "That misleads the reader into thinking that I wrote this piece. These are not my writings. They are answers to questions and there is a huge difference... I stand by my statements but I did not write this blog." In the blog, Clooney says, "The fear of (being) criticised can be paralysing. Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the (Iraq) war. "In 2003, a lot of us were saying, 'Where is the link between SADDAM (HUSSEIN) and (OSAMA) BIN LADEN? What does Iraq have to do with 9/11?' "We have to agree that it's not unpatriotic to hold our leaders accountable and to speak out."
