Paris Jackson Announces Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation Ambassadorship at Global Citizen Live!

Paris Jackson is following in her godmother’s footsteps – she is now an ambassador for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (E.T.A.F.), which the late actress founded in 1991 and which funds organizations worldwide that support comprehensive sexual-health education, HIV criminalization reform, and more.

On stage at Global Citizen Live! on Monday (September 19) in New York City, the 19-year-old model and actress stood with Xavier Bettle, the openly gay and married Prime Minister of Luxembourg, to publicly pledge her 100% support to fighting the AIDS pandemic.

“Thirty years ago, almost to the day, our then-president Ronald Reagan would not speak about AIDS publicly while the pandemic was wreaking havoc within the gay community; he wouldn’t even say the word…AIDS,” Paris told the audience (via Vanity Fair). “Elizabeth Taylor was having none of that. She wasn’t going to let this crisis run wild as it directly impacted her friends & loved ones, those the administration considered discardable. Undaunted, she went to DC and spoke as loud as she could. From the Oval Office to testifying in front of Congress, Elizabeth would not be silenced. Her tireless efforts led to Ronald Reagan finally uttering the word AIDS publicly in 1987.”

“Here we are decades later, living under a president who lost the popular vote and has proven himself to have the compassion and empathy of a dead flashlight battery,” Paris continued. “His budget proposes slashing healthcare funding for HIV/AIDS worldwide. So now, here I am hearing my Godmother’s voice, urging me to be heard and not allow all that’s been accomplished, in finding the cure, to fall by the wayside. But listen…I’ve got real news for him. None of us were discardable in 1987, and none of us are discardable now.”

Paris was joined at the event by Annie Lennox, Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Paul Shaffer, Michael Moore and rapper French Montana.

FYI: Paris is wearing L’AGENCE.

Musician Annie Lennox's Daughter Tali Involved in Kayak Capsize, Boyfriend Ian Jones Still Missing

Tali Lennox-Fruchtmann, daughter of musician Annie Lennox, was kayaking in the Hudson River near the Staatsburgh State Historic Site when it capsized on Saturday morning (August 8) in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

According to People, the 22-year-old artist’s photographer/model boyfriend Ian Jones, 32, is currently missing.

Dutchess County Sheriff’s Captain John Watterson told the mag that both the strong current and alcohol may have contributed to the accident, which is under investigation.

“The current in the Hudson River is very strong and we believe the current played a role in the kayak capsizing, and once the two got in the water it was difficult for them to stay together,” he said.

Tali was saved by a passing boat. Meanwhile, more than 50 people helped search for Ian on the first day, as Marine patrol and a dive team continue their search.

Our thoughts are with their family and friends during this difficult time.

Beyonce Called a 'Lite Feminist' by Singer Annie Lennox

Beyonce plays the role of photographer while doing some sight-seeing on Tuesday afternoon (October 7) in Paris, France.

The 33-year-old entertainer made it a family day with her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy (not pictured).

Legendary singer Annie Lennox recently was asked to talk about Beyonce considering herself a feminist.

“I would call that ‘feminist lite.’ L-I-T-E. I’m sorry. It’s tokenistic to me. I mean, I think she’s a phenomenal artist – I just love her performances – but I’d like to sit down (with her). I think I’d like to sit down with quite a few artists and talk to them. I’d like to listen to them; I’d like to hear what they truly think,” Annie told Pride Source.

“I see a lot of it as them taking the word hostage and using it to promote themselves, but I don’t think they necessarily represent wholeheartedly the depths of feminism – no, I don’t,” Annie added. “I think for many it’s very convenient and it looks great and it looks radical, but I have some issues with it. I have issues with it. Of course I do. I think it’s a cheap shot. I think what they do with it is cheap and … yeah. What can I tell you? Sex always sell. And there’s nothing wrong with sex selling, but it depends on your audience. If they’re 7-year-old kids, I have issues with it.”
