Education: Local schools in Jakarta and Punahou School in Honolulu; graduate of Columbia University, NY(majored in political science) and Harvard Law School

Barack Hussein Obama II was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. His father, also named Barack Obama, was born and raised in Kenya where he herded goats with his own father… I guess he wasn’t too creative when naming his son..lol.. Ok, let’s carry on with the story..

Barack’s mother, Ann Dunham, grew up in a small town in Kansas. These two people, from very different backgrounds, probably never dreamed in their earliest years that their destinies will meet at the University of Hawaii which will later lead to the birth of the first African-American President of USA.

As you could have seen, about 15 hours ago some Saudi Arabi hackers attacked our site.  We had to reinstall the whole wordpress platform, upload all the posts and fix the errors caused by this attack. I hope you didn’t get scared as I did, because this is the first time something like this happened to me. I thought, as a lot of you also probably think, that this kind of stuff happens only in movies… Well, guess again…

I was a t work, talking to my colleagues, and one of them asked me to show him my celebrities site we’ve been talking about the other day. So I said sure, and typed the address in my firefox address bar. All of a a sudden, the site appears… but it’ doesn’t look farmiliar at all.. I started reading and immediately it hit me when I saw “You’ve been hacked by..”  This stuff really happens. Here’s the screenshot for those of you who didn’t catch it. Clicking on the image makes it larger.

Celebrity X No. 15

Celebrity X No. 15

I hope that you like our new category called Celebrity Timeline where we present you a life of a celebrity in four pictures. If you are interested, follow this link to the first issue of mentioned category. As soon as possible, when we turn to dedicated server, we will introduce you new exciting categories, as well as standalone galleries of various celebrities for those who keep to that old one “picture is worth a thousand words”.

Today we prepared one of the most popular male singers from one of the Spanish speaking countries. I am not even going to tell you from which country this celebrity is from, because it would be too easy to guess who is today’s Celebrity X. When I say that this singer is from Spanish speaking area, I am sure that you instantly narrowed the choice to few persons. Once young kid, as you can see him on the picture, became famous as a member of one Latin boy band, and later started his solo career in 1991. In over three decades of his singing career, until these days, he has sold more than 55 million albums worldwide. Today he is considered to be a major star in the world of Latin Pop and is considered to have opened the doors for some of his fellow Latin American singers. I don`t want to make it too easy to guess who is our Celebrity X, so now is the time to answer that question, and then to check out if you were right here. And be sure to check the answer by double-clicking on the “+/- Show Answer” link inside the post.

Celebrity Timeline - Jennifer Aniston

Celebrity Timeline - Jennifer Aniston

If you still didn`t hear about our new category, you can follow Celebrity Timeline link to see first issue of mentioned category, presenting Brad Pitt`s life. There you can also read short introduction to the category, and find out what was on our mind when we decided to start Celebrity Timeline.

Unfortunately, in last few days we had some technical difficulties, so we are still struggling with migrating of CelebritiesTAN to the new platform, but I really hope that next week I`ll be able to announce brand new site on our dedicated server with improved look and feel. But until then, check out Jennifer Aniston` Celebrity Timeline, and be patient a little bit more.

Jennifer was born on February 11, 1969 in Sherman Oaks, CA. She spent the first year of her life living in Greece with her family, and later moved to New York City, when her father landed a role on the daytime drama named “Love of Life”. On the first picture you can see how she looked back in that time. Few years later, when she was six, Jennifer began attending the Rudolf Steiner School, a Waldorf educational school that applied the philosophy of integrating artistic and analytic learning to fulfill a child’s unique and untapped destiny. Little Jennifer was inspired to act after seeing the play “Children of A Lesser God” on Broadway. After discovering acting at the age of 11, she joined the Rudolf Steiner School’s drama club. You can see how she looked in school on the second picture, and next picture is taken in 1987. That was the year when she graduated from the Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Music and Performing Arts.

Before I give you some hints about our new Celebrity X issue, I must say that we are almost done with migrating of the site to new WordPress platform. That means that in a week or so, you will be witnesses of totally new and improved design of CelebritiesTAN.com, as well as faster loading of site although some extra features will be added, which will stay secret for now. All existing content and categories will stay unchanged, and you will always be able to reach content about your favorite celebrities again.

Beside that, at the age of 22, she became the youngest actress to receive two Oscar nominations, and at the of age 33, she is now the youngest actor of either sex to receive six nominations. Along impressive award list goes huge list of successful roles, of course. Probably the most famous role in her career was that one in romantic disaster blockbuster from 1997, where she acted with another one great Hollywood celebrity, mentioned in our past issue of Celebrity X. That movie also became at the time the most expensive film ever made, costing approximately a stunning number of US$200 millions.

Celebrity X No. 13

Celebrity X No. 13

Like in the previous Celebrity X issue, today we are presenting you another popular American singer. To be more precise, this celebrity became famous pop and R&B singer and songwriter. She was born in Staten Island, New York, although when her parents divorced, mother took her and her younger sister to their grandmother’s home in Rochester, Pennsylvania, a suburb outside of Pittsburgh. For that reason she has spent the majority of her childhood in Pennsylvania. Celebrity from the picture aspired to be a singer from her very young age. At that time, she was known locally as “the little girl with the big voice”, singing in local talent shows and competitions. According to some sources, her brilliant talent provoked fear in all of her competitors. Whenever competitors heard that they would be up against her in any given competition week, they would immediately withdraw. She was so good that soon her peers became jealous of her and would frequently subject her to ridicule. Jealousy even escalated with acts of vandalism around her house including the slashing of the tires on the family car and similar acts. Eventually, the family relocated to Wexford, another suburb in the Pittsburgh area. At least, this time they tried to keep her talent in secrecy to avoid further inconveniences.

She first appeared on national television in 1990 as a contestant on the Star Search program, and went on to star in Disney Channel’s television series The New Mickey Mouse Club from 1993–1994. I hope that until now you have a clue about the possible name of this celebrity, so it is time to find out who are we talking about this time. Be sure to double-click the “+/- Show Answer” link below this text to reveal the answer!! Continue reading…

Celebrity X No. 11

Celebrity X No. 11

Before moving on to a new Celebrity X issue, I want to apologize because I didn`t publish new posts in the past two days. Last week I announced some brand new categories that are yet to come and other interesting stuff which are scheduled to appear on CelebritiesTAN.com throughout this week. We are considering migrating site to WordPress platform because it is more flexible and gives us much more room to play with some new and exciting features. In that way we could make the site even more interactive and playful so you would have more stuff to enjoy on CelebritiesTAN.com. Because of this transfer we are spending a lot of time researching what is the best way to export data and migrate the design to have better look and feel for you as our number one priority. Given that, please have some patience for the next month or so. We’ll keep you posted about our progress.

Today I prepared a little bit harder Celebrity X issue. This picture is really rare, and there is no way to know who it is, unless you are his loyal fan. But don`t worry, I`ll give you few hints. The person on the picture was born in Los Angeles, but his mother moved from Germany to the U.S. during her childhood, while his father is half of Italian and half German descent. His parents gave him name after one worldwide famous artist, but soon they divorced, when he was just one year old. He firstly appeared in a TV show as a five years old boy. In relatively short period of time he managed to progress into top category of Hollywood superstars, with his extraordinary sense for acting. He has amazing list of roles in numerous blockbusters in his successful acting history, but his claim to fame was role in which he acted as Toby in This Boy’s Life in 1993. I hope this helps you enough to realize who could it be. Continue reading and find out is your answer the right one.
