Rose Byrne welcomes newborn

Rose Byrne welcomes newborn

The Sydney-born actress, who welcomed baby Rocco with partner Bobby Cannavale recently, stepped out at a screening of her latest film the Meddler.

I feel just sleep-deprived, and still in the tunnel, Byrne, 36, revealed of her foray into motherhood. It's has been a challenge, the first three months. It's intense. My brain's really fried.

Her husband Cannavale broke the news of the birth of his son on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert confirming Byrne had popped on February 1. Cannavale didn't give out many details except for that the baby was beautiful and was named Rocco.

I had a baby on Monday, yes, the Vinyl star said. You know, I didn't do anything. We (men) don't do anything and I'm so tired. I think I've gained 28 pounds (12kg) since Monday.

I mean, I'm not kidding you. Like, this jacket fit so well, like, last Thursday. But I've been eating so much.

Rocco is Rose's first-born but Bobby has a 20-year-old son named Jake from ex-wife Jenny Lumet.

The doting duo have been dating since 2012, and have since worked together in the 2014's Annie and Adult Beginners as well as 2015's Spy.

The Meddler is a comedy-drama that tells the story of an ageing mother who moves to Los Angeles to be closer to her daughter. There she sparks a relationship with a police officer. Susan Sarandon, J.K. Simmons and Jerrod Carmichael also feature on the film.

Kylie Minogue hairstyle

Kylie Minogue hairstyle

Kylie Minogue travelled 30 years back in time and looked like she had stepped straight out of the 80s when hit the town of London wearing her spiral perm. The 47-year-old superstar appeared with her spiral perm during an outing with her fiance Joshua Sasse, 28. Her hairstyle gave fans a flashback of the perm she sported during her time playing Charlene on Neighbours back in the 80s. Photo is from Queens bday in 2018.

Kylie stepped out with Sasse for dinner at the Wolseley restaurant after performing at a wedding in London.

The pop star wore her bleach blonde hair in tight curls and looked as if she has barely aged a day since she was wearing the same hairstyle 30 years ago.

Along with her wild hair, she wore a chic black top and trousers, as well as a pair of high-heels.

Back in the 80s, Kylie's curly hair became her trademark after she launched her career in Neighbours and then set out to take the world of pop music by storm.

For fans worldwide, it looks like she might have revived her initial look, but the makeover might go unnoticed on her young lover, Sasse, who was born the same month Kylie released her first single, I Should Be So Lucky, in December 1987.

During the romantic dinner, people could spot the sparkling engagement ring which she accepted from Joshua earlier this year.

Kylie met the young actor while filming TV show Galavant in September, and she confirmed the romance two months later.

They announced their engagement in February when they confirmed the nuptials in a newspaper announcement.

The statement read: The engagement is announced between Joshua, son of the late Dominic Sasse and of Mary Heale (nee Macauley), of Herefordshire, and Kylie, eldest daughter of Ronald and Carol Minogue, of Melbourne, Australia.

The singer has previously shrugged off the nearly two decades gap between the couple, telling a radio station in her native Australia: I think the general consensus is, we kind of look right together. So even though on paper it might not look right, it just is right. He is an absolutely brilliant, brilliant guy. And even if I try and act cool and natural, it's written all over my face that I am very happy.

She has also been particularly effusive about the happiness she has found with Sasse, confessing that she had a love in my life, which is just a beautiful thing, and even letting drop that she might want to start a family. If that were to happen that would be incredible.

Gay Comedians Get Married

Gay Comedians Get Married

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Australia since 9 December 2017 but this article looks back when it was not possible.

Since they could not marry their actual loves, comedians Zoe Coombs Marr and Rhys Nicholson, who are both gay, got hitched in a Melbourne ceremony as a protest against Australia's prohibition on same-sex marriage.

The wedding took place as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where Coombs Marr took out the prestigious Barry Award for best show.

The protest was in fact a colourful party with music, dances, mock protesters and an impressive cast of Australian comedians.

But not everything was a party. There were some serious moments as well. For instance, comedian Hannah Gadsby gave a powerful speech, saying the think of the children argument commonly used against same-sex marriage is actually one in favour of gay marriage.

When you say to a person, ‘No. You cannot join in. You do not belong in this community', the end of that sentence is not the end of the story. The ramifications are traumatic to the individual, she said.

Rhys and Zoe are doing this for all of the children. Because at the moment, what we are doing in this country is saying to all of the children that it is OK to exclude a minority. It is OK to be a bully, Gadsby continued.

Through their union, filled with love and disrespect, from both within and without, what Rhys and Zoe would like to say to all children is that being inclusive is just as important as being included.

The ceremony's grand finale features the bride and the groom declining to kiss each other and opting instead for giving a passionate kiss to their same-sex partners.

The idea came to me in a dressing room, she said. I was in drag, dressed as a man, and Rhys was in semi-drag as an androgynous dandy. Rhys said, ‘We look like a really fucked up wedding couple'.

We thought it was pretty funny, and the idea stuck in my head. I thought it was something we could do to assert ourselves in a way that was fun but also quite provocative.

According to Coombs Marr, the event was a massive farce.

It is a farce that we can't get married, that we're still talking about this in 2016, she said. We want to say, come on guys, this is really silly. We can't marry our partners but we can marry each other.

Apart from its goal to protest and to entertain, the ceremony also served as a fundraiser for LGBTI youth charity Minus18. The Melbourne-based group run events - including same-sex and gender diverse formals - and provide resources and support to LGBTI youth.

It's really important that young people are getting the message that their relationships are their own and as valid as anybody else's, said Coombs Marr.

Splendour in the Grass

is an Australian music and arts festival that takes place every year since 2001. Traditionally, the festival is held in Byron Bay, New South Wales, except for two years since its inauguration when it was held in Woodford, Queensland. The 2013 festival was the first to be held at the new North Byron Parklands locations, to much controversy from festival goers and the local community. The buzz recently happened in 20 - 22 JULY 2018.

The festival was created and promoted by the Village Sounds and Secret Service music companies, and began in 2001 as a one-day gathering for festival goers looking for an event in winter as it is a period when there are not that many events of this nature. The festival evolved into a two-day event in 2002.

As well as the latest and top music from Australia and overseas, the festival also features local arts and crafts and cuisine.

Since 2014, the festival holds up to 30,000 and it is considered Australia's largest winter music festival.

Splendour in the Grass was awarded the Faster Louder Festival Award for Favourite Line Up in 2009. Ode: Intimations of Immortality, by English poet William Wordsworth, was the inspiration for the naming of the event.
