    Lady Gaga, a longtime supporter of gay rights, says pride weekend is a time to shine a light on equality. 'This weekend is a time for us all to reflect on the importance of tolerance and the importance of bravery and kindness, (and) the importance of us supporting one another,' the pop star said in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday. The pride parade in New York City, Gaga's hometown, kicks off Sunday. The Grammy-winning performer, like Madonna, Cher and others before her, has a strong gay fan base who credits the singer with pushing gay rights to the forefront. Gaga said she's touched to witness the 'beautiful pride that I see so many of friends and the LGBTQ community have.' 'It's a beautiful pride that we all should be in awe of,' she added. Sunday's parade in Manhattan, which starts on Fifth Avenue, ends in the West Village.
  • Opera has been popping up recently at the most unlikely New York places: a revamped garage, a dive bar, a basketball court and even an old aircraft carrier. It's part of a festival with an in-your-face goal — to bring this once grandiose art form to ordinary places where people hang out. The New York Opera Fest 2017 that ends in late June has drawn casual, but curious, spectators, some of whom may never have gone to an expensive production in a plush theater. On Saturday, composer Darius Milhaud's 'The Guilty Mother' will get its U.S. premiere in the onetime garage on Manhattan's West Side — a story rife with adultery and intrigue. The more than 30 festival spectacles included a Brooklyn basketball court that hosted a hip-hop opera called 'Bounce,' with a group of public school kids participating. Children also were invited, free of charge, to Public School 129 in Harlem for a playground performance last week of Donizetti's 'The Elixir of Love.' The kids helped create the production, from designing the costumes to singing in the chorus. Excerpts from Bizet's 'Carmen' were heard in a bar called Freddy's in Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood, under a beer-stained wall. And Mozart melodies floated through a lush community garden on Manhattan's Upper West Side for the composer's 'La Finta Giardiniera,' a free performance in which a noblewoman poses as a simple gardener while caught up in her own romantic twists and turns. In Harlem, the Baylander, a decommissioned aircraft carrier, was the stage for Tom Cipullo's 'Glory Denied,' which dives into the struggles of an American prisoner of war in Vietnam. The festival serves to counter the shrinking audiences for the formal grand opera tradition. Organizers say that experimenting with new ways of presenting it to spectators of all ages has pumped fresh blood into this still great musical theater. The festival, starting in May, brought together a group of small, innovative companies experts say are the cutting-edge future of the classical arts. ____ Online: http://osopera.org
  • Over a million people have visited the relics of Saint Nicholas, one of the Russian Orthodox Church's most revered figures, since they were brought to Moscow last month. A total of 1,021,500 people have paid their respects to the holy remains, according to data published Saturday on an official website for the relics. The queue to see the fragments of the saint's bones on display has regularly extended several kilometers from Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior since the May 23 beginning of public viewings. The huge turnout underlines the important of the Orthodox Church and the defining role religion plays for many Russians a quarter-century after the collapse of the officially atheist Soviet Union. The relics, on loan from Italy, will be moved to St. Petersburg later this month.
  • Celebrating a decade at the creative helm of Dior Homme on Saturday, designer Kris Van Assche held court with Christian Slater, Jamie Bell and Kata Mara at his catwalk collection that paid homage to the iconic Dior suit. Here are some highlights of the spring-summer 2018 menswear collections at Paris Fashion Week. DIOR HOMME It was the suit, but not as we know it. Retracing the origins of Dior Homme without a hint of nostalgia, 41-year-old Belgian designer Van Assche took the house's bread-and-butter two-piece and deconstructed it to produce an edgy, celebratory show. Tailored in black Ottoman, the new double-breasted blazer was cut with an exaggeratedly nipped waist in a retro style. Long sleeveless coats had surreally bulbous hips and tail coats were cut on the bias. 'I've been here for 10 years now and I wanted to play with the DNA of the brand — the black suit and the white shirt. How can we reinvent it?' Van Assche told The Associated Press. In case guests momentarily forget what show they were attending, there were plenty of funky reminders: Silk scarves around the neck with the Dior Homme atelier address (3, Rue Marignan). Long angular-shouldered coats were also fastidiously patterned with micro text that repeated the house's name. Dior Homme defined the collection shown Saturday at Paris Fashion Week as a 'fusion of sport and suit.' Halfway through it was clear why, as the sartorial musings gave way to varsity styles such as silken American baseball jackets with Paris emblazoned on the front, and collegiate V-neck tank tops in flame red that ticked the box for the house's younger clientele. ___ DIOR HOMME FRONT ROW Looking slick in a black Dior Homme suit without a tie, actor Jamie Bell arrived with his actress fiancee Kate Mara at the Grand Palais venue to a flurry of camera flashes. Mara, who wore a white silk gown, joked that their highly-anticipated wedding would be taking place 'today,' since they both looked the part. 'Today. We're appropriately dressed. We'll be walking down this aisle,' Mara told The Associated Press. Although the 34-year-old actress would not disclose who would be designing her wedding dress, Bell was less coy. 'Well, I know who I'm wearing, Am I allowed to say this? Dior of course. They've always been good to me over the years. I'm going to wear a bow tie,' he said. 'And doesn't he look handsome in Dior?' Mara said. Mara's latest movie 'Megan Leavey,' a true life story about a young Marine corporal in Iraq, was released June 9. She said she was 'super honored and proud to be telling Megan Leavey's story because she's definitely a hero of mine. And it's rare that there are movies about females in the military.' ___ BALMAIN IN BLACK AND WHITE Designer Olivier Rousteign's fascination with Faberge eggs, couture and Russian imperial glamour seemed to make a bold return at Saturday's indulgent Balmain collection. The blue-and-gold Faberge egg that Richard Burton once gave to Elizabeth Taylor has been a touchstone for the 31-year-old designer in the past. Here, the iconic ornament — created for the Romanovs from 1885 to 1916, when the company was run by Peter Carl Faberge — seemed to be evoked in black and white. The result was a show of highly structured clothes — for men and women — with dazzling decorations. Embellished cross-over coats conjured up styles of Russian Tatars with belts nipping the waist. A black long-sleeved mini-dress bore thick tectonic plates on the torso and heavy threading that looked like a shell or protection for a warrior. And then black-and-white striped tuxedos, with lines in all directions, seemed to fast forward to the exuberance of the Jazz Age. The show was, predictably, a little over-the-top. ___ UNEXPECTED MR. ROBOT REUNION Fashion brings people together. American actors Christian Slater and Rami Malek — both of hit U.S. television series Mr. Robot — unexpectedly ran into each other during Paris Fashion Week. 'It honestly randomly happened, yeah. I did not know he was going to be here. He didn't know I was going to be here. And we actually bumped into each other on the street yesterday. So incredible,' Slater told the AP. Malek, who joined his co-star on the Dior front row, talked about the upcoming third season of the award-winning techno-thriller show. 'Take all that kind of excitement and frenetic energy of the first season. And all the information you get from the second one. Combine it together and it's a ... wild ride,' Malek said. ___ SACAI'S ASIA, FULL OF COLOR One of Japan's most lucrative fashion houses, Sacai has built a reputation for the avant-garde and quirky. This was on full display in Saturday's color-rich show. This season, Asia was in the air. An oversize tubular cuff that mirrored the sleeve of a kimono was a leitmotif in Sacai's 49-piece display that showcased both men's and women's designs. Asian styles were evoked in the multitudinous use of layers — a thick hybrid poncho in Cerulean blue with tassels, or an oversize coat covered in blurred text that looked like a decorative pattern. Models walked the runway on thick Geisha 'geta' clogs. Bright flashes of citrus yellow — a color that symbolizes courage in Japan — came on a bold silken shoulderless design with a billowing skirt and box pleating. It's a look that only a courageous fashionista could wear. And even the checked suits — normally a Western signature — were rendered here in the Madras fabric pattern. ___ CLASSY HERMES, ALWAYS IN STYLE Hermes has become a byword for simple, unpretentious luxury. With panache, veteran menswear designer Veronique Nichanian proved this again in a classy, masculine show Saturday for spring-summer 2018. Tasteful colors such as ruddy pink, steel, dusty brown, copper and cobalt blue set off the beautifully cut simple silhouettes. High-waisted baggy pants mixed with fitted bombers, or loose luxuriant sweaters rolled up at the sleeves. Metallic red shiny pants and hoodies provided this season's twist. Unlike most Paris fashion shows, the collection produced no far-flung concept, gimmick or muse, simply because none was needed. Nichanian — who's been at the helm of this family-run business for an incredible 29 years — is an expert at letting the clothes do the talking. ___ Thomas Adamson can be followed at Twitter.com/ThomasAdamson_K
  • Britain's famed Glastonbury music festival has embraced an unlikely headline act: Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn, 68, received a rock star welcome from thousands of festival-goers, who chanted his name and held up signs that read 'I love Jeremy Corbyn' as he took to the festival's main stage. Corbyn gave a wide-ranging speech on women's rights, Brexit, global warming and London's Grenfell Tower fire tragedy. Even before his arrival, music fans at the festival were singing 'Oh, Jeremy Corbyn' to the tune of 'Seven Nation Army.' The politician, who is popular with Britain's young voters, was set to introduce U.S. hip hop duo Run The Jewels. Performers at this year's Glastonbury included Katy Perry, Foo Fighters, Radiohead and Ed Sheeran.
  • President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump were among the guests as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (mih-NOO'-shin's) married a Scottish actress. Mnuchin exchanged vows Saturday night with Louise Linton at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington. Mrs. Trump wore a pink blush dress and the president was in a tux. Vice President Mike Pence also attended. The 54-year-old Mnuchin worked for the Goldman Sachs investment firm for nearly two decades before founding a hedge fund. He also ran a company that invested in Hollywood movies and was finance chairman of Trump's presidential campaign. The 36-year-old Linton has appeared in movies and TV shows. Mnuchin also produced movies before joining the government. It's Mnuchin's third marriage and the second for Linton.
  • A magazine writer has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the creators of the new Tupac Shakur biopic, saying that portions of the film are based on his articles about the late rapper. Kevin Powell says in the federal lawsuit filed Friday that 'All Eyez On Me' borrows from articles he wrote and interviews he did with Shakur in the 1990s for Vibe magazine. The lawsuit says, for instance, the film's fictional character Nigel is based on a character Powell wrote about in one of his magazine articles. The suit says the character is based on Jacques 'Haitian Jack' Agnant. 'There are stories with fictional characters and re-worked narratives that are unique to the Original Work that appear in the Infringing Work,' the suit said. 'Rather than contact Plaintiff, Defendants, while fully aware of Plaintiff's copyright in the Original Work, willfully and improperly developed, produced, filmed and released the Infringing Work derived from Plaintiff's Original Work.' Powell is suing Lionsgate, Program Pictures, Morgan Creek Pictures as well as producers and screenwriters of the film. A representative for Lionsgate declined to comment Saturday. Morgan Creek Pictures did not immediately respond to the same email request for comment sent to Lionsgate. Powell's lawyer, Keith White, said his client's 'exclusive and intimate access' to Shakur was the result of trust he'd established over the years. 'The narrative that Kevin developed from many intense and exclusive moments with Tupac should not have been used in any film without Kevin's approval and consultation,' White said in a statement Saturday. 'All Eyez On Me' debuted last weekend at No. 3 with $27.1 million. Critics have panned the movie and Jada Pinkett Smith, a close friend of Shakur's, contradicted several scenes in the film and called her portrayal 'deeply hurtful.' Shakur, one of the most prolific figures in hip-hop, died in 1996 from gunshot wounds.
  • John Legend's work has won Grammys, an Oscar and a Tony, but years before achieving global fame, the Legend-to-be took home another prize: spelling bee champ. A 1989 story in The Springfield News-Sun (http://bit.ly/2sQ6VSD ) proclaimed, 'Product of home teaching wins bee.' The newspaper noted the future R&B singer's sharp attire, his steady gaze and crisp enunciation, saying the 10-year-old Legend 'came to win ... and win he did.' Legend, born John Roger Stephens in Springfield in 1978, credited his mother, Phyllis Stephens, and a tutor with helping him study for the contest. He and his siblings were home schooled. The newspaper says he took a no-nonsense approach, not cracking a smile during the competition until his tutor cried out with joy when he correctly spelled the winning word: 'prejudice.' ___ Information from: Springfield News-Sun, http://www.springfieldnewssun.com
  • Lauren Hutton is going to be this year's honoree at the 20th annual Maine International Film Festival. The 73-year-old actress, model and producer will be awarded the Mid-Life Achievement Award next month in Waterville, Maine. Festival programmer Ken Eisen told the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/2u03TZ6) that Hutton was part of what he described as a golden age of American filmmaking in the 1970s and that she broke the rules for aging by modeling nude at age 61. She'll receive the award July 20 at the Waterville Opera House where her movie 'American Gigolo,' also starring Richard Gere, will be shown. ___ Information from: Morning Sentinel, http://www.onlinesentinel.com/
