Norah Jones' Father, Sitarist Ravi Shankar, Dead at 92

Famed sitarist Ravi Shankar, the estranged father of singer Norah Jones, has passed away at 92.

Ravi was admitted to Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego, California last week after having difficulty breathing and died on Tuesday (December 11) at approximately 4:30pm PT.

The sitarist was considered to be the driving force of introducing Indian music to the Western World and he forged a relationship with Beatles guitarist George Harrison, which helped him reach global fame.

Ravi continued to give virtuoso performances into his 90s, including one last year at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

We send our condolences out to Ravi‘s family, friends, and loved ones during this difficult time.

Law's Link-Up With Jones

Ray-Ban Wayfarers — is there any other way?

Jude Law and Norah Jones glam up at the premiere of their Wong Kar Wai-directed film My Blueberry Nights at the Cannes Film Festival Opening Night on Wednesday.

Law, 34, and Jones, 28, share quite the lingering on-screen kiss that has some critics in a tizzy. Variety reports, “Of one particularly intimate scene, a kiss between Jones and Jude Law that required multiple takes and different camera setups, [cinematographer Darius] Khondji says he could feel Wong “carving it and molding it like a sculpture.”

Jones on the sexy smooch: “The kiss was the moment that Kar Wai had the most direction about. He was so excited when we did that scene. He knew exactly what he wanted and we shot it for a long time.”

Law added, “He was very clear that this tiny moment in these two people’s lives was also a turning point. It struck me that we tend to make films that are about huge moments, years, in everyone’s lives. But lives change in a moment. It was clear that when we filmed the kiss it was a moment that was going to change their lives.”

Jude Law Kicks Off Cannes Film Festival

Jude Law opens the 60th Cannes Film Festival Wednesday with the New York-California road trip tale directed by Wong Kar Wai. This film will mark the acting debut of Norah Jones. Co-stars Natalie Portman and Rachel Weisz did not make it to the kick-off.

“I remember the first take we did, my voice was really [squeaks] high,” Norah told The Associated Press. “I was just terribly nervous, and Kar-wai came over and patted me on the back and I relaxed a little.”

Kar-Wai was impressed with Norah‘s acting abilities: “We rolled the camera and she cried, and after that I said, ‘well, it’s great,’ and she said, ‘do you want one more?’”

Other pictures include Jude standing on the balcony of Hotel Martinez in Cannes…
