Taking Names: Beyonce performs at U.N. for World Humanitarian Day
Superstar singer Beyonce has serenaded a different New York City venue: the United Nations.
Beyonce performed her song “I Was Here” on Friday in the U.N.’s General Assembly Hall in honor of World Humanitarian Day, which is Sunday. A music video of the performance will debut the same day.
Beyonce sang in front of hundreds, including Julia Stiles, R&B singer The-Dream and songwriter Diane Warren, who wrote the song.
Miss Warren said in an interview that she initially called Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, and played the song for him over the phone. He quickly called Beyonce, and days later she recorded it. It appears on her album “4,” released last year.
Anderson Cooper hosted, saying with a laugh: “Is this what happens at the U.N. every Friday night?”
Jennifer Aniston engaged to Justin Theroux
After years of breathless anticipation — at least on the part of the tabloids — Jennifer Aniston is finally ready to wed again.
Her representative, Stephen Huvane, confirmed Sunday night that the actress is engaged to her boyfriend of more than a year, Justin Theroux.
“Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage,” Mr. Theroux’s rep said in a statement to People, which first reported the engagement.
Mr. Theroux, 41, and Miss Aniston, 43, have known each other for years, but started dating more than a year ago after working on the comedy “Wanderlust.” Though that film disappeared quickly from movie theaters after its release earlier this year, the relationship clearly proved to have more staying power. The two moved in together and tabloids soon began predicting everything from marriage to babies for the new couple.
Miss Aniston had been a part of such speculation for years, ever since the demise of her marriage to Brad Pitt after a five-year union in 2005. While Mr. Pitt moved on to a long-term relationship with Angelina Jolie, Miss Aniston had high-profile relationships with the likes of John Mayer and Vince Vaughn that didn’t last, leading to the common narrative: When will Jen find someone or have a child?
It’s a theme that irked the former “Friends” actress.
“It’s very narrow-minded, I think. It doesn’t measure the level or my happiness or success in my life and my achievements or any of that,” she told “CBS This Morning” earlier this year. In the same interview, she said she was happier than she’d ever been.
This will be Mr. Theroux’s first marriage. It’s not clear if a wedding date for the couple had been set.
Miss Aniston’s engagement comes four months after Mr. Pitt and Miss Jolie announced their engagement.
