Documentary on Rose McGowan coming to E!

NEW YORK: Actress and activist Rose McGowan will be the subject of a new documentary TV series.
E! said Tuesday it will air the first part of “Citizen Rose” on Jan. 30, which coincides with the release of her memoir, “Brave.” Four more episodes will air in the spring.
McGowan helped open a national public discussion about sexual harassment and abuse when she accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of raping her. Weinstein has repeatedly denied “allegations of non-consensual sex.”
With the documentary, McGowan said she hopes to “amplify my message of bravery, art, joy and survival” and to “show how we can heal through art even when being hounded by evil.”
She will serve as an executive producer.
When The New York Times revealed in October 2017 that she was part of a settlement involving Weinstein in an alleged sexual harassment case, McGowan declined to comment. “Women fight on,” she wrote afterward. “And to the men out there, stand up. We need you as allies.” According to the Times, Weinstein has reached at least eight settlements with women, including McGowan, who reached a $100,000 settlement with him after an encounter in a hotel room with the executive producer in 1997 during the Sundance Film Festival.
On Oct. 12, 2017, McGowan alleged that Weinstein had raped her and that Amazon Studios dropped her project after she complained. On the same day, McGowan said that Twitter suspended her account for 12 hours after she repeatedly tweeted about Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, including toward her. Twitter explained that McGowan’s account had violated its privacy policy because one of her tweets included a private phone number.

Once again! Ahlam latest appearance on The Voice draws attention

CAIRO: Once again, Ahlam’s latest appearance on The Voice has left the prorgam’s fans divided on social media.
All eyes were on the Emirati star whom, as usual, sparked controversy with her latest haircut and outfit during Saturday’s night show.
Surprisingly, Ahlam Al-Shamsi applied blue ombre tips to the end of her short, wavy black hair styled by Lebanese hairdresser Tony Sawaya. She also wore a black henna tattoo on her forehead and chin in what fans saw as a bold move.
Her causal outfit was by French fashion house Balmain, made of an embroidered black shirt with a long white cardigan on top.
“What do you think of my look tonight?” the singer wrote on Instagram to see her fans’ reactions.
“It’s different, I know,” she added.
Some fans accepted her appearance, commending how elegant and fashionable the icon looked.
Others wrote to her saying she looked better in simpler attire, with some writing harsh, anti-tattoo comments on her page.
