New York (CNN Business) – The world of online shopping was long immune to inflation until Covid-19 turned everything upside down.

CNN entertainment | ‘My Life as a Rolling Stone’ shines a stadium-worthy spotlight on the Rolling Stones

(CNN) – “The Beatles: Get Back” set a very high bar for musical nostalgia, but “My Life As a Rolling Stone” is no slouch, breaking the four band members into their own dedicated hours, with extensive access to the three surviving members and a who’s who of rock voices serving as the chorus.

Narrated by Sienna Miller, the docuseries — playing on the BBC in the UK and on the Epix pay channel in the US — interviews Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood on camera, while leaving the musicians, managers and others with insight about the band as off-camera voices, keeping the focus squarely on the Stones.  –read more–

Zahara Jolie-Pitt and Angelina Jolie in September in Beverly Hills, California

The news that Zahara Jolie-Pitt will be attending Spelman College in Atlanta is quite a boon to HBCUs.

As the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the teen had her choice of schools. And by choosing one of the best known of the historically Black colleges and universities to matriculate at, she brings a great deal of attention to the liberal arts college.

Her mother proudly announced Jolie-Pitt’s choice on social media, and the excitement for her was palpable.

I get it, as I count several Spelman graduates as good friends. A supportive sisterhood awaits Jolie-Pitt.

Good luck to her and all the incoming freshmen across the nation this semester.
