angelina jolie captured in remarkable photo visiting syrian refugee children in lebanon

This lady does so much in such limited time.

Angelina Jolie was recently spotted attending the BAFTAs with Brad Pitt, but she hasn't forgotten her responsibilities as a UNHCR Special Envoy.

A week or so after making her rounds at the awards show the starlet flew to Lebanon where she visited a Syrian Refugee Settlement. Angelina spent three days with some of the 3,500 orphaned and displaced children at the camp. The location of the camp is in the eastern Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, and Angelina Jolie called the time she spent there "heart-rending".

The particular photo (above) was taken this past Sunday on February 23rd.

In a statement she said:

Homeland Being Sued???

Filed under: Legal MattersClaire Danes

Homeland Under Fire

The critics, the viewers, the Emmys- everyone loves Homeland!

At least, that's what we thought. It turns out at least one person can't stand Showtime's domestic terrorism thriller starring Claire Danes.

Fady Abboud, Lebanon's minister of tourism, believes the show radically misrepresents Beirut as a horribly dangerous city and a haven for terrorists.

Abboud is even considering legal action against the award-winning drama. He says:

"We are following the case legally. I raised this at the cabinet meeting, and the president asked the minister for justice and the minister of communications to see what can be done."

We certainly don't want to be blase that the man is offended, but it's not meant to be a documentary, it's just a TV show!

If we took American Horror Story seriously, we'd have to believe literally EVERYONE is El Lay is a ghost! When really it's mostly ghouls! LOLz!

But srsly, we hope they can come to some sort of arrangement before lawsuits and threats come into it! We're all adults, let's act like it!

Angelina Jolie Meets Syrian Refugee Children

Angelina Jolie is more than one of the biggest movie stars in the world. She's also a citizen of the world.

As the United Nations' Special Envoy, Angelina traveled to Lebanon on Wednesday. She met with government officials, Syrian refugees, and their nationless children.

The mother of six spoke to several families who, fearful of being killed in the crossfire of a bloody civil war, had left their men behind in order to cross the border from Syria safely. She said:

"I was moved to meet Syrian families in homes where they are welcomed and protected… They lost so much."

Angelina and the U.N.'s High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres praised the Lebanese government for granting asylum to the fleeing Syrians and called on other countries to do the same.

We are so proud of Angie's efforts. And we can only hope that one day the children of Syria grow up knowing only peace.

snoop-dogg-smoking-problem-web.jpgSnoop Dogg probably smokes too much for his own good.

And 2009 blaze-up in Lebanon has cost a promoter some serious coin.

Snoop is facing a lawsuit from Middle East promoter Roger Kalaouz who claims Snoop smoking in Lebanon has cost him a lot of business.

Weed is illegal in Lebanon and Snoop FILMED himself smoking and put it in his That's Tha Homie music video.

Boo! GaGa's Born This Way Gets Banned In Lebanon

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikSad SadLady GaGa

born this way banned in lebanon

Not cool, Lebanon!

Lady GaGa's Born This Way may be the fastest-selling album of the year so far, but that's not stopping the government of Lebanon from banning the album from stores.

According to reports, Lebanon's government chose to ban the album due to its "alleged insults to Christianity" and "its all around 'bad taste.'"

Such a disappointing move! Maybe the folks in Lebanon who want to hear Born This Way can download the album off of iTunes or Amazon. Is it also banned from digital stores???

If so, they COULD always download the songs and get creative with the file names. Just re-title everything from "Lady GaGa - Born This Way" to "Dave Matthews Band - Before These Crowded Streets." Ha!

A classic Dave CD doesn't seem suspicious at all…does it?

What do U think about GaGa's Born This Way being banned in Lebanon?
