Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor who also became a Nobel Laureate, has died at the age of 87, according to media reports.
Wiesel is best known for his groundbreaking work Night, a book describes the horrors he experienced as a Jewish survivor of the Nazi death camps of the Holocaust during World War II.
After he was liberated from those camps at the end of the war as a young man, he went around the world for the rest of his life — most notable in the United States, France, and Israel — to speak on behalf of victims of hate and persecution.
According to Wiesel's son, the author apparently died at his home in Manhattan. No cause was given.
Wiesel's death is a major event in global politics; even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke after his death (below), releasing a statement:
This is so touching — and you can just see his pain.
Zachary Quinto went on The Late Show with host Stephen Colbert last night, and before they could go in on Star Trek and everything related to the film, they took a moment to remember the late Anton Yelchin.
It seems like we've been waiting FOREVER for more Britney Spears in our life and luckily, not only did the pop star's new album Glory drop today, but James Corden aired his Britney Carpool Karaoke sesh on Thursday night!
Last night, the blonde beauty hopped in the car with Corden and gave us EVERYTHING we could have wanted from old hits to a little dirt about her love life!
Not only did we get AH-Mazing throwbacks like Oops!...I Did It Again and Baby One More Time -- to which James of course dressed up -- but Miz Spears also talked about wanting three more kids, being "done with men," and revealed a naughty alias she uses while on the road. LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out Brit's EPICALLY perfect karaoke sesh (below) and don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for her performance at the VMAs on Sunday!
