Bruno Mars has announced the dates for his anticipated world tour, “The Moonshine Jungle World Tour.”
The Date for St. Louis is Thursday, August 8 at Scottrade center, with pop artist Ellie Goulding as the opening act.
Actress Gabourey Sidibe is ready to take on one of her most important roles to date as host of AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange, a documentary series highlighting contemporary life, art and pop culture in the African Diaspora. The fifth season of AfroPoP, produced by Black Public Media, premiered Tuesday, January 22 on public television’s WORLD channel, continuing on Tuesdays weekly through February 5, 2013.
Sidibe, who is best known for her Oscar-nominated performance in the film Precious, decided to accept the role of host as an opportunity to learn more about her roots. “I am part African—I am Senegalese. So I looked at it as a chance to get closer to where I am from,” she says.
The actress is hoping that this season, which focuses on human and women’s rights issues, will shatter myths about Africa.
“Growing up I was the African kid in my school. Every time I went back to Africa people thought I was sleeping in a bush and being chased by lions, but it wasn’t that,” she said. “So I hope people can see themselves in this series and I hope it highlights that everyone struggles and celebrates.”
