TIME has named Bassem Youssef, the Egyptian satirist, to the 2013 TIME 100, the magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Bassem Youssef will be attending the Time 100 gala hosted on April 23,2013 in New York City in the U.S. For the special issue of the magazine, the “Daily Show” host writes: My job is hard. I have to sift through pages of political- and media-themed satirical material from exceptional writers and figure out what amusing face I can make to accompany each jab. Then I must perform them, 22 minutes a day, four days a week, with only our caterer’s spread to sustain me. Bassem Youssef does my job in Egypt. The only real difference between him and me is that he performs his satire in a country still testing the limits of its hard-earned freedom, where those who speak out against the powerful still have much to fear. Yet even under these difficult circumstances, he manages to produce an incredible show: a hilarious blend of mimicry, confusion, outrage and bemusement, highlighting the absurdities and hypocrisies of his country’s rebirth, all wielded with the precision of a scalpel, which, by the way, he should know how to wield because he’s a former heart surgeon. Yeah. And his family is beautiful and he’s a kind and generous friend. I am an American satirist, and Bassem Youssef is my hero. More»

Egypt’s John Stewart Bassem Youssef has announced in his personal account on Twitter that he and his work team of his popular satirical program ‘The Program’ will have a leave. In one of his recent tweets, Youssef said: “The Program’s work team has been continuously working since August, and it’s time to take a break” In another updated tweet, the satirical TV presenter noted that the leave will be for two or three weeks at maximum, adding that more details will be further disclosed later on The Program’s coming episode on Friday. Moreover, the satirist stated in a third recent tweet that the work team has been planning to take such a vacation since the beginning of launching the new season of The Program. Through the two or the three-week vacation, the CBC channel will rerun a value collection of The Program’s previous best episodes, Youssef added. The popular political satirist denied reports that the Egyptian authorities were behind his decision to stop airing his show for a few weeks. More»

Hips swinging, South Korean rapper Psy launched the dance and video of his new song "Gentleman" at a packed Seoul concert on Saturday, with nearly 160,000 tuned in online to see if he could carry off a repeat of his megahit "Gangnam Style". The video for "Gangnam Style" is the most watched ever on YouTube with more than 1.5 billion hits, and its horse-riding dance has been imitated by thousands around the world, from Eton schoolboys, to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. But a recent challenge from the "Harlem Shake" global dance craze upped the ante for "Gentleman", and the 35-year-old Psy has made it clear he was aware of the high expectations. "Of course I feel more burden than before, because lots of people are watching," he told a news conference before the concert. "(Today's show) is a performance of thanks for the 'Gangnam Style' success." The video for "Gentleman", whose refrain is "I'm a mother father gentleman", featured a fast, hip-swinging dance by Psy in his trademark sunglasses and a variety of jackets, from baby blue to hot pink and sparkly white.

Malawi's President Joyce Banda was "incandescent with anger" over a statement labelling US singer Madonna a bully, the BBC has learnt. She was unaware of the harshly-critical statement that was issued by her office following Madonna's recent visit to the country, senior officials have said. The statement accused Madonna of exaggerating her contribution to the country and demanding VIP treatment. Madonna, who was visiting her charity in Malawi, hit back at the criticisms. She described them as lies and said she began her involvement in Malawi seven years ago "with honourable intentions". 'Red carpet' A well-placed source told the BBC that President Banda was "incandescent with anger" when she heard about the statement, and a senior official has confirmed she knew nothing about it. The statement, issued on Wednesday, accused the star of wanting Malawi "to be forever chained to the obligation of gratitude". It claimed Madonna believed the government should have "rolled out a red carpet and blast the 21-gun salute" upon her arrival in Malawi. More»

Actress Halle Berry is pregnant with her second child, her first with fiance Olivier Martinez, representatives for Berry said on Friday. Berry's representatives gave no details, but celebrity news website TMZ, citing sources close to the couple, said Berry was about three months pregnant and is expecting a boy. Berry, 46, has a five-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend, Canadian model Gabriel Aubry. After a long and acrimonious battle for custody, Berry and Aubry finally reached an agreement in November. The Oscar-winning "Monster's Ball" star and French actor Martinez, 47, have been engaged since March 2012. More»

British actor Richard Griffiths, best known for his roles in 'Withnail and I' and the Harry Potter films, has died at the age of 65 after complications following heart surgery, his agent said on Friday. Griffiths spent almost four decades in radio, film, on television and on stage, and received some of his industry's top awards for his role in Alan Bennett's play "The History Boys". The portly actor filled the screen as the lascivious Uncle Monty in the cult 1987 film 'Withnail and I'. But younger fans will remember him for his portrayal of a much crueler avuncular figure - Harry Potter's red-faced and bullying uncle Vernon Dursley. Daniel Radcliffe, who played the boy wizard and performed with Griffiths in the stage play "Equus", said the veteran performer had encouraged and coached him and helped him get over his nerves. More»

Irreverent U.S. cable television series "Girls" and "Louie" on Wednesday headlined the winners of the annual Peabody Awards, the oldest and one of the top honors in broadcasting. The awards recognize excellence in television and radio broadcasting, as well as by webcasters, producing organizations and individuals. HBO's "Girls," which has earned creator and star Lena Dunham, 26, two Golden Globe awards and a slew of Emmy nominations, was lauded by the Peabody panel for its "singular, decidedly unglamorous take on sex and the single girl." Comedian Louis C.K.'s "Louie," a cult hit on FX of unconnected story lines and vignettes about a single father in the entertainment business, was praised as a "milestone of comedic reach and candor." The Peabody panel, which also honors international and local programs, awarded a prize to WVIT-TV, an NBC affiliate in West Hartford, Connecticut, for its coverage of the elementary school mass shootings in December in nearby Newtown.

Animated prehistoric adventure "The Croods," about a family of cave dwellers fighting for survival, claimed the top spot on movie box office charts with $44.7 million from weekend ticket sales in the United States and Canada. The 3-D children's comedy from "Shrek" and "Madagascar" creator Dreamworks Animation added $63.3 million from international markets, the studio said on Sunday, for a global total of $108 million. "Croods" dethroned two-time box office champ "Oz the Great and Powerful," which slipped to third place on domestic charts. The Walt Disney Co prequel to "The Wizard of Oz" earned $22 million during its third weekend, according to studio estimates. In between the two family films, thriller "Olympus Has Fallen," about a White House under terrorist attack, took in $30.5 million at North American (U.S. and Canadian) theaters. More»

Green slime spewed furiously at the Kids Choice Awards on Saturday, where "Twilight Saga" star Kristen Stewart and British boy band One Direction won two awards apiece. Stewart, 22, escaped the slime but plunged her hands into the green goo, saying she "felt like I have finally found my kindergartner self," as she accepted trophies for movie actress and favorite female butt kicker. Organizers said more than 350 million votes were cast online in more than 20 categories, spanning film, television, books, music and sport for the stunt-filled annual award show on youth channel Nickelodeon. Hosted by "Transformers" actor Josh Duhamel, who is married to singer Fergie, the show in Los Angeles featured performances by Pitbull and Christina Aguilera, as well as Ke$ha. More»

Author Stephanie Meyer is hoping her vampire fans will be willing to step into a new world and embrace aliens as the first film of her new book series, "The Host", hits the big screens. Fans of the successful "Twilight Saga" box office franchise have been eagerly anticipating Meyer's next offering on the big screen with "The Host" out in U.S. theaters on March 29. But Meyer, speaking at the film's red carpet premiere in Los Angeles, said the new film may not be what fans of the popular vampire series expect from her. "If (fans) go into it wanting a repeat of "Twilight" they probably will not be thrilled, because it is not. It is a very different kind of story," Meyer told Reuters TV. More»
