Touching and rare video of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds singing together has resurfaced online
Tragically, both Carrie and Debbie passed away this week, with the Star Wars actress dying aged 60 following a heart attack on Tuesday, December 26, and her mother Debbie, 84, dying on Wednesday, December 28, after suffering a stroke.
Now, in what is thought to be one of the only videos of the pair singing together in public, a video of them performing a duet on The Oprah WinfreyShow following a joint interview in 2011 has emerged.
The recording sees the mother and daughter duo singing a medley of Al Jolson’s You Made Me Love You and Barbra Streisand’s Happy Days Are Here Again.
The bond between them is evident as they sing, making it a pretty special performance.
I get really passionate about things. At some time in my life, I’ve been obsessed or borderline-obsessed with saltwater aquariums, the baritone euphonium, reading, piano, filming, financial markets, New York City, and photography.
I studied History at the University of Georgia.
During my senior year of college, I took out $3,000 in student loans and bet it on Barack Obama to win the presidency. A friend heard about this bet and got me a job trading bonds on the Chicago Board of Trade. I traded for three years. It went really well for awhile. But then it went really bad.
After I lost my trading job, I decided to move to New York City and take portraits of strangers on the street. Mom wasn’t too happy about that decision, but so far it’s gone pretty well. I’ve taken nearly 5,000 portraits and written 50 stories. And I’ve met some amazing people along the way.
Thanks for visiting Humans of New York.

I try my hardest not to be political. I’ve refused to interview several of your fellow candidates. I didn’t want to risk any personal goodwill by appearing to take sides in a contentious election. I thought: ‘Maybe the timing is not right.’
But I realize now that there is no correct time to oppose violence and prejudice. The time is always now. Because along with millions of Americans, I’ve come to realize that opposing you is no longer a political decision. It is a moral one.
I’ve watched you retweet racist images. I’ve watched you retweet racist lies. I’ve watched you take 48 hours to disavow white supremacy. I’ve watched you joyfully encourage violence, and promise to ‘pay the legal fees’ of those who commit violence on your behalf. I’ve watched you advocate the use of torture and the murder of terrorists’ families. I’ve watched you gleefully tell stories of executing Muslims with bullets dipped in pig blood. I’ve watched you compare refugees to ‘snakes,’ and claim that ‘Islam hates us.’
I am a journalist, Mr. Trump. And over the last two years I have conducted extensive interviews with hundreds of Muslims, chosen at random, on the streets of Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan. I’ve also interviewed hundreds of Syrian and Iraqi refugees across seven different countries.
And I can confirm – the hateful one is you.
Those of us who have been paying attention will not allow you to rebrand yourself. You are not a ‘unifier.’ You are not ‘presidential.’ You are not a ‘victim’ of the very anger that you’ve joyfully inflamed for months. You are a man who has encouraged prejudice and violence in the pursuit of personal power. And though your words will no doubt change over the next few months, you will always remain who you are.
I’ve been looking for a while, trying to decide how to “start my day”.
What to post about: a funny animated short, an inspiring Rumi poem, a music video?
I kept looking and found this interview which Adele seems to have done after the release of her “19” album.
New record? I’m assuming it’s “25“.
I don’t have any other information about this video except what she speaks about.
I admire Adele more and more with each passing day.
I see her as a very talented, young woman who is really down to earth. She has a great sense of humor and pokes fun at herself. She seems to be very modest and hasn’t let her huge success go to her head.
I love Adele. You know that by now.
Hope you enjoy this video and get another view of who Adele really is.
Major earthquake in Nepal ….. Bruce Jenner’s interview in 20/20
April 24, 2015
A 7.8 magnitude quake struck an area between the capital, Kathmandu, and the city of Pokhara, the US Geological Survey said. Tremors were felt across the region, with further loss of life in India, Bangladesh, Tibet and on Mount Everest.
The government has declared a state of emergency in the affected areas.
A national police spokesman told the BBC that 970 people had died in the quake, and that more than 1,700 had been injured. At least 539 people were killed in the Kathmandu valley, he added.
Bruce Jenner sat down with Dianne Sawyer for an exclusice two-hour interview during a special edition of ABC News “20/20” on Friday, April 24, 2015.
Born and raised by underpaid public school teachers in Sanford, Fla., Andy Marlette graduated from the University of Florida and became staff editorial cartoonist at the Pensacola News Journal in 2007.
Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C. Doug’s tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette’s fierce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech. With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle.
Andy’s editorial cartoons have become both hated and adored by daily readers. His work has been awarded by the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors for best editorial cartoons on state issues and former Governor Charlie Crist referred to himself regularly as Marlette’s biggest fan, despite the fact that he was also regularly a target in cartoons.
How The Perfect Book Falls Into Our Lap: An Interview With Author Annie Kagan
After a lifetime of playing the protective, sympathetic younger sister, Annie Kagan discovers her bad-boy brother Billy has died: homeless, in the depths of addiction, possessing a criminal record. Three weeks later, Annie wakes up on her birthday to hear Billy’s voice above her, “Annie! Annie! It’s me! It’s me! It’s Billy!” And so begins Annie and Billy’s extensive after death communications (ADC).
From then on Billy shares in sensory detail his experience of the other side. According to him, it will be slightly different for each soul. Since none of us experience this reality the same, his insight did not surprise me and explained why accounts of the other side often vary. This got me wondering if the beliefs we have while we are alive determine what we will experience in our afterlife.
CHARLIZE THERON CELEBRATES 10 YEARS AS DIOR J’ADORE FACE WITH NEW AD
It has been ten years since actress Charlize Theron’s first advertisement for J’adore by Dior was released. And now this year, the French fashion house will launch a new campaign featuring the blonde beauty with her long legs on display in an airy dress as she overlooks a gold landscape. The video set to be released on September 3rd has been teased by the label on its Youtube page along with an interview with Charlize.
When asked about being the face of the fragrance for a decade, Charlize says, “There’s a natural evolution that happens to all of us, and there was definitely stepping stones in the last ten years for that woman to kind of find her freedom within her confinements that we all have and I think that for me as an actor that was a real joy to be encouraged to be part of that.”
In the advert, which is set to London Grammar’s hauntingly beautiful Nightcall, the enchanting actress delivers the words:
‘A new world, every hope is possible. The future is bright, the future is gold, the future is woman.
The past can be beautiful, a memory, a dream, but it’s no place to live, make your own story, and now it’s the time.
The only way out is to the light. But it’s not heaven, it’s a new world.
The future is gold, J’adore Dior.’
She is FEROCIOUS In New Dior Ad! Just Rips Her Necklace Off And Keeps Moving!
The drama is REAL, folks!!
Charlize Theron has starred in plenty of sultry Dior ads in the past, but this latest fragrance one may just top the cake!
In it, the 39-year-old actress struts her guilded glory down a glistening hall before shedding her metallic heels to ascend a rope through the ceiling.
And not only does she climb the long, golden sash at superhuman speeds (without ever seeming to tire, we might add), she also decides approximately halfway up that her pretty necklace is too heavy or something.
As the principal and most remarkable feature of King Louis XIV of France‘s third building campaign of the Palace of Versailles (1678–1684), construction of the Hall of Mirrors began in 1678. To provide for the Hall of Mirrors as well as the salon de la guerre and the salon de la paix, which connect the grand appartement du roi with the grand appartement de la reine, architect Jules Hardouin Mansart appropriated three rooms from each apartment as well as the terrace that separated the two apartments.
The principal feature of this hall is the seventeen mirror-clad arches that reflect the seventeen arcaded windows that overlook the gardens. Each arch contains twenty-one mirrors with a total complement of 357 used in the decoration of the galerie des glaces.The arches themselves are fixed between marble pilasters whose capitals depict the symbols of France.
These gilded bronze capitals include the fleur-de-lys and the Gallic cockerel or rooster. Many of the other attributes of the Hall of Mirrors were lost to war for financial purposes, such as the silver table pieces and guéridons, which were melted by order of Louis XIV in 1689 to finance the War of the League of Augsburg.
