Sarah Brightman Returns from Space Training for New Album and Tour: ‘I Needed to Earth Myself’

Sarah Brightman is making an astronomical landing with her fifteenth studio album Hymn.

After spending months in Russia training for a trip to outer space that she postponed in 2015, Brightman, 58, opened up to PEOPLE exclusively about the creation of her newest album and the planning stages of her tour.

“I needed to earth myself,” says the soprano singer. “I said I would like to do an album of songs which are full of light, full of hope. Songs that remind me of when I felt safe and familiar with things in my childhood when I sang in my church.”

“If I don’t use and I don’t convey my feelings through it, I feel depleted,” she added. “I don’t function very well and that’s the beauty of having a gift like a voice. You sort of know what to do. You know what direction to take, you know that you want to communicate through it.”

Brightman, who shot to fame after star-turning roles on Broadway musicals Cats and Phantom of the Opera, linked up with producer Frank Peterson for the album-creating process. What came out of two-and-a-half years of planning and recording was the dynamic, choir-filled album, Hymn, out on Nov. 9.

“ is about looking into the good in things because I do believe that good prevails always,” she said, adding that the word “positivity” would describe her album.

“I did experience huge amounts when I was in the space program that actually how precious everything really is on this beautiful planet and how precious that is,” she added.

Now, the “Time to Say Goodbye” vocalist is ready to take Hymn on the road later this fall for a tour that’s “going to be quite beautiful.”

“I have a lot of energy. I tend to before I go on these tours, I become more energetic,” she says. “You create a power for yourself which will protect you because when you go on tour you’re dealing with the hardship of jet lag and moving around continually.”

The “Angel of Music” singer says her set on tour will be divided into two halves. The first will feature a more retrospective aspect to Brightman’s music, which will look like “somebody who is going to the ballet or the opera.” The second will be a bit more modern and feature most of the songs off Hymn.

“I’m wearing all these amazing runway gowns, which I’ve made a little more theatrical by adding things to them. Stones, crystals, all sorts of stuff,” she says. “I’ve got a big choir behind me. Up really high. I’ve got an orchestra on one side, a band on the other side and myself in the middle.”

Brightman’s album is filled with collaborations with artists like French tenor Vincent Niclo on single “Sogni” and Japanese composer Yoshiki on the emotional “Miracle.”

“ is a really interesting guy and we got along very well,” she said. “It was a very interesting collaboration with Japan’s most famous rockstar writing a beautiful contemporary classical piece.”

Along with the collaborations, Brightman’s album jumps from classical and cinematic music to pop rhythms in a cohesive album threaded by its spiritual nature. The album also takes fans back to one of her most famous classics “Time to Say Goodbye” with Andrea Bocelli, which she recreates in a touching English rendition.

“I wrote the lyrics for it but they were very much inspired from the original Italian lyrics when translated,” she said. “It’s quite a grand song, it’s almost like an opera song, but I wanted to do this in a very intimate way.”

Fans can purchase tickets for “Hymn: Sarah Brightman in Concert” through her website.

Sarah Silverman Remembers Her Mother on Anniversary of Death: ‘I Miss You Mom, You Are a Warrior’

Sarah Silverman shared a touching post on Instagram in honor of her mother on Saturday.

Silverman posted a throwback photo of her mother, Beth Ann O’Hara, who died two years ago at the age of 73. Wearing a red shirt and denim overalls, O’Hara flashed a big smile for the beautiful photo — the same one Silverman shared when her mother died in 2015.

“Two years ago today my mom left her earthly shell. I feel like I’m just beginning to understand her. She had so many struggles and over her years persevered through all of them,” wrote Silverman in the emotional post.

“She was raised in a time when girls were seen and not heard and went to college to find husbands instead of themselves. But she found her voice and she found her immeasurable strength and had great years after allowing herself her full potential. And then her body was the fight and she battled for decades before that took her too. I miss you mom. You are a warrior.”

 

O’Hara was also involved in showbiz — producing and directing 50 plays over the course of 25 years,  New Hampshire Public Radio reported.

In honor of her work, Silverman presented her mom with a lifetime achievement award at the New Hampshire Theater Awards in 2003, the New Hampshire Public Radio also reported.

Before presenting the award, the actress and comedian described her mother as “loving, nurturing” and “colorful.”

“Loving, nurturing, caring, colorful — she used to wear two different color socks, I’m not sure she was aware of that – supportive, honest, strong and with endless creativity and energy. She gives us the feeling that we fill her heart with love and I think it’s because we fill her heart with love. Mom … we feel the same. you fill our hearts, as well,” Silverman said of her mother during the award presentation.

When her mother passed away in 2015, Silverman wrote a beautiful tribute on Twitter.

“Wednesday morning my mom died,” Silverman wrote for the Twitter post. “She was a know-it-all in overalls & two different colored socks. And defiantly, no bra.”

“The woman who, when I was little, gave me detailed directions to a restaurant ladies room then secretly watched as I found my way to it on my own,” she continued. “The woman who went back to college at 42, and skinny dipped in ponds, and told me never to protect myself from a broken heart because it was so very worth the pain to get to experience love.”

Black-ish’s Yara Shahidi: ‘I Got Into Every College I Applied to’

Yara Shahidi hasn’t announced where she’ll be attending college, but she has quite a few options to choose from.

The 17-year-old Black-ish star revealed in an interview with Seventeen on Monday that she only got acceptance letters back — no rejections — from the schools that she applied to.

“I did get all of my college acceptances and I’m keeping them close to the belt as of right now, but I got into every college I applied to,” Shahidi, who plays Zoey on the ABC comedy, shared.

“So that’s really exciting. I found all of that out last week,” she said, and added, “My college plans are all up in the air, but I will choose within the next month.”

Last October, Shahidi told PEOPLE that she plans to defer college for at least a year. “I know when Malia Obama announced , she got a lot of slack, but I feel like what’s interesting is I know so many people that are deferring. It’s more than to just roam around or just sit down and stare at a wall, but it will also give me an opportunity to work,” Shahidi said. “I’ve been working more than half of my life and that’s always been balanced with school and all of the other responsibilities, so to have a year to focus on work and to focus on specified interests will be nice before I pick a career and choose what I want to study and my life path.”

“I think no matter what, I know that I want to go to college. I know that I’m going to defer a year and I’m willing to have a more unorthodox college experience, but at a certain point I want to be on a campus,” she continued.

FROM COINAGE: The True Cost of Famous TV Apartments

The teen actress told the publication that although she has not yet decided on a minor, she definitely wants to focus on two majors.

“I want to study as much as possible and a double major is the solution,” said Shahidi, who plans to double major in African American studies and sociology.

As for what the ABC starlet aspires to be, she lists both Solange Knowles and her TV mom Tracee Ellis Ross as two life role models — for differing reasons.

“There’s so many different people for different reasons. I think when it comes to fashion and just her aura, I like Solange. And then also Tracee is such a great example. She went to Brown, she got her honorary doctorate from Brown, what what,” Shahidi said.

“There are so many people, who have found ways to balance school, life, career — all of it,” she continued. “And what I realized is that even with college, my wonder and desire to study sociology stems from the same desire I have to be an actor just in the understanding of humans and I realize that’s what I’m fascinated in — understanding humans.”

Pennsylvania Man Allegedly Used Homemade Gun to Kill His Ex-Girlfriend: ‘I Will Forever Hate You’

A Pennsylvania man allegedly became “obsessed” with his ex-girlfriend and fatally shot her last year with a homemade air gun, according to multiple reports.

Josef Raszler, 35, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with criminal homicide in the death of 46-year-old Stephanie Roof, PEOPLE confirms. Roof was found dead in the driveway of her home in Lower Macungie Township, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 13, the Morning Call reports.

Police claim Raszler used part of a metal projectile in the handmade gun to kill Roof more than a year after the mother of four broke off their relationship, according to the paper.

He allegedly used Internet tutorials to make the gun.

Raszler’s attorney was not immediately able to provide a comment to the Morning Call, and it was unclear if Raszler has entered a plea or remained in custody. PEOPLE could not immediately reach his lawyer.

Raszler and Roof broke up in the summer of 2015, but Raszler “was angry and not accepting of that breakup,” Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, District Attorney Jim Martin alleged to Lehigh Valley Live.

Officials claim Raszler became fixated on Roof and sent her text messages — which she did not respond to — for months after their breakup.

“I swear it will catch up with you. It happens on his time … not ours,” he allegedly wrote in one message, according to Lehigh Valley Live. “I was a perfectly good person just trying to help and now my soul has holes I can’t mend.”

In October 2015, Raszler allegedly texted Roof, “I will forever hate you.”

He lived directly across the street from Roof and the two began dating in January 2015, Lehigh Valley Live reports.

Roof’s oldest daughter, Tricia Vanderford, told WFMZ that waiting seven months for the arrest was “excruciating” because she had long suspected Raszler to be her mother’s killer.

“Every single day to see him be happy,” she said, “knowing a huge part of our happiness has been gone.”

Alexis Arquette’s Sister Patricia Celebrates the Transgender Pioneer’s Legacy 6 Months After Death: ‘I Wouldn’t Change a Thing’

Alexis Arquette was undoubtedly one of the first transgender activists in Hollywood.

Coming from a family of actors, Alexis was accepted when she came out. Her sister Patricia was concerned about the impact her sister’s revelation would have on her career — though Alexis was not. 

“Alexis was really also very powerful, and strong, and really brave, very brave,” Patricia told PEOPLE while at the Let’s Toast the Extraordinary Achievements of Alexis Arquette pre-GLAAD Media Awards dinner sponsored by Ketel One in Hollywood.

“We had a long conversation when Alexis told me that she was transgender, and I said, ‘Okay. So what do you do about Hollywood? How will you get work? People are not progressive in Hollywood and it could really negatively impact your career. Are you thinking everything through?’ ” the Academy Award Winner recalled.

Patricia affirms that despite the obvious risks, Alexis was confident in her decision to come out in Hollywood.

“Alexis was very brave to make that decision,” her sister continued. “She really wanted to help progress the world and move the world forward.”

Alexis died last September at age 47, but childhood memories of Alexis are still vivid for Patricia.

“Alexis and David both had these beds that sort of look like space pods. They were like these tubes that you could get in,” the 48-year-old recalled. “My mom was making Alexis’ bed and realized that a big chunk of the mattress was missing out of the corner. She said, ‘Alexis what happened to your mattress?’ Alexis said, ‘I need the foam to make a puppet.’ So she pulled out this puppet with this little sparkly dress on it and my mom said, ‘Oh, my god, it’s gorgeous. My kids are so creative.’ “

Patricia was joined at the event by brothers David and Richmond along with her boyfriend Eric White. Not only were they there to remember their sister, but also to honor the many lives that she touched.

“We’ve gotten so many letters. I’ve had letters from people all over the world who said their first experience of a trans person was with Alexis,” Patricia shared in awe of her late sister.  “Watching Alexis in Last Exit to Brooklyn — which was Alexis’ first movie — she played a trans person in the 1950s which was considered really a crossdresser at that time. That’s what people called trans people then.”

Patricia also noted ,”Alexis was incredibly creative our whole lives. I grew up with Alexis putting on makeup, trying on high heels …. Alexis was my best friend when we grew up, so I wouldn’t change one thing about Alexis.”

Wrestler Brie Bella on Hoping for a ‘Natural’ Childbirth: ‘I Know I Can Stand Pain Because of My Career’

Brie Bella is well-versed when it comes to enduring physical stress on her body, but she understands that carrying a child — and giving birth — are a different story.

“Everyone can tell you what pregnancy feels like, but it will still be new to you,” the WWE Divas Champion tells Fit Pregnancy and Baby for its April cover story. “I’m preparing for a natural birth. I hope I can stick with that, but obviously I’m open to medical help if need be.”

Bella, 33, isn’t worried about being uncomfortable, though — and her reason why makes a lot of sense.

“I know I can stand pain because of my career,” says the Total Divas star, who has retired from the ring for the time being to focus on motherhood. “Childbirth is going to be more painful than wrestling, but I know I will survive.”

Bella and husband Daniel Bryan are expecting a daughter this spring, whom they plan to name Birdy Joe. And the story behind her parents’ choice of moniker is a sweet one.

“Joe, her middle name, is after my grandfather — his name was Joseph, and he meant the world to me,” she shares. “Birdy is because my husband and his whole family are B’s. And he married me, a B too, so his one request was that our kids have B names.”

Adds Bella, “I didn’t realize how hard it was to find girl B names, but we both came across Birdy and knew that was it!”

FROM COINAGE: 4 Ways to Work Out Without Killing Your Wallet

 

The secret to getting pregnant for Bella and Bryan (aside from the obvious)? Stop obsessing over it.

“You spend your adult life trying not to get pregnant, so I thought having it happen would be immediate,” she says. “But for a couple of months I’d be late and think I felt signs and then turn out not to be pregnant.”

“Sure enough, when we took one month off from trying and stopped the ovulation tests, it all worked out,” the mama-to-be adds. “I think my body was telling me, ‘It’s time.’

Brie Bella Is Pregnant with Her First Child!

 

Aside from her flexible birth plan, Bella is focusing on what comes after — namely, breastfeeding — and willing herself to allow time for herself and Birdy to find a rhythm.

“I’ve talked to friends; they’ve all had issues with their baby not latching on right away,” she explains. “You concentrate so much on the birthing part that sometimes you forget the important parts that come once the baby arrives.”

“I’ll remind myself to be patient,” she continues. “I feel breastfeeding creates a special bond with your baby. The fact that you can feed your child with your body is the most fascinating thing in the world to me.”

The actress, 19, shared a photo of herself wearing nothing but a few necklaces, bracelets and rings on Thursday. Donning her new midnight blue hair, the star had red lipstick and sparkly eyeshadow on as well.

“I love when you smile baby #vintage #grain #tbt to the other day;),” she captioned her Instagram post.

“It feels good and I always love funky hair colors. I always wanted blue hair, I wanted green hair, purple hair, so it’s just fun to do,” she said. “I dyed it blue, just because I felt like it. My sister dyed hers pink and we just like doing it to be matching and coordinated. It was just fun. Her boyfriend did his color too. It was cool.”

“I’m not completely digging the blond, to be honest,” she said. “But once I get in the sun and I get a little more of a tan, I think it’ll look better. I think I’m just going to keep it for summer … And then for winter, I’m going to go back to my red, my luscious red.”

50 Cent Tried Yoga — but It Wasn’t What He Expected: ‘I Thought I Was Going to Stretch in a Sauna’

Yoga is harder than it looks!

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson got that rude awakening when he took his first yoga class, and finally learned the truth behind the deceptively difficult practice.

“I didn’t know what I thought I was going to do.  You know, you go to yoga. I thought I was going to stretch in a sauna, just stretch and have a good time,” 50 Cent tells Harry Connick Jr. during Thursday’s episode of Harry.

“It started out good and then the ladies started going faster and faster. It was difficult moves for you to put your body in different spaces and I was like, ‘what?’ and I’m looking around to see if other people are having the same experience. I ended up in a class that was a little to advanced for me,” the rapper admits.

50 Cent says he overestimated his fitness ability going in.

“You can’t just step in thinking you can do what they do because you see these hot girls going in the room with the yoga mat,” he says. “You’re like, ‘I can do that, whatever they doing in there.’ No, you can’t.”

50 Cent is no stranger to exercise, though. In 2010, he spent three hours on the treadmill a day and followed a strict liquid diet to drop over 50 lbs. for his role as a football player who is diagnosed with cancer in All Things Fall Apart.

Jourdan Dunn on Her Two Met Gala 2016 Balmain Looks: ‘I Felt Really Good About Myself’

If you thought Jourdan Dunn killed it with her two Met Gala looks—both by Balmain—you’re not the only one. The British model herself agrees with you. “Last night I felt really good about myself,” she told PeopleStyle when we caught up with her on the set of a campaign shoot today. She paired the look with Stuart Weitzman heels and Eva Fehren jewelry.

Dunn fell right in line with the night’s overall trend: Bold silver gowns with a robot-like inspiration, a perfect fit for the Met Gala’s theme of ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.’ Kim Kardashian, Kylie Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Cindy Crawford, Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes joined Dunn in wearing Balmain and, together, they walked the carpet as the #BalmainArmy, a hashtag the fashion house created in the past (and has stuck as a way to describe fans of the brand).

Instagram Photo

For Dunn’s look, she worked directly with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing. “Olivier sent two sketches—one was a short one and one was a long one,” she explained. “I was drawn to the long one, I thought it was amazing. When I had my fitting for it, it all came together.” As soon as her glam squad got a whiff of the direction, they suggested she pair the look with gray, silvery hair. “I thought it was a cool idea,” she said.

Instagram Photo

But despite the fact that she looked calm and collected in all of the photos, she admitted it’s actually a very nerve-wracking experience. “There are people everywhere, like waiting for you to walk out of your hotel and then all the paparazzi,” she said. “ It’s huge. So I was in the car, and I was nervous. But once I got on the red carpet, I just had to own it and feel myself.”

It’s a long way that she’s come from her first gala appearance in 2009 (below, with Karlie Kloss). “I remember when I first attended seven years ago, I felt so out of place and like I shouldn’t really be there,” she said. “Now I feel I do deserve to be here, I’ve worked hard. I like being in that mind frame.”

After the gala concluded, Dunn slipped into a black sequined mini Balmain to head downtown to the Gilded Lily after-party. “The second look is all about being able to move and dance and just feel good,” she said. “With a Balmain dress, sometimes that’s a bit impossible because they’re so structured. But in my fitting, Olivier wanted to make sure I was able to move. It’s all about something fun and be able to move and get down in and look good in.”

But she didn’t change in the car. “Some people do that but I went back to my hotel, chilled, refreshed my makeup and changed really quick and headed out,” she said. (And no, the Army did not travel together.)

So, how can regular people get into the #BalmainArmy? There’s no boot camp, unfortunately, she said. “I don’t know how I became a member,” she added, “but I’m happy to be in the army.”

It is authored by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), an organization in which Dr. King served as the first president.

“I Like Art by Men Better”: Gender by the Numbers at Art Basel Miami Beach

The last time I spoke with Micol Hebron, earlier this year, she was spearheading Gallery Tally, a project for which she and a small army of volunteers count the numbers of men and women artists on the rosters of art galleries. A week and a half ago, Hebron was in Miami for the art fairs, so she took the opportunity to do some more counting. Walking around Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB), she stopped at various booths to tally the gender breakdowns of the artists on view, engaging dealers, directors, and attendants in discussions along the way.
