Russell Crowe named ambassador

Russell CroweRussell Crowe has been named an ambassador for Sydney. He’ll be featured in campaigns to promote the Australian city to the U.S. He’s one of three leading Australians who’ve been named ambassadors. The other two are a businessman and a surfing champion. Morris Lemma, premier of Sydney’s state New South Wales, says, “They are international heavyweights who can influence people from industry, business, entertainment and sport. Their public support of Sydney will encourage people to visit and invest in business, tourism, the arts, sport and education. The Sydney ambassadors will be part of a promotional campaign that will appear in the U.S. later this year.”

    If he is an ambassador now does that mean he can throw phones with diplomatic immunity?

    Mel B. has AMAZING legs, but so does Mariah Carey.

    Who cares about their legs? Why do you keep saying that?
    Ok, Nancy, I’m sorry for what I said. I was way too rude, and I do apologize. I’m not normally like that. I still do believe it is Arnold that is causing everybody so much frustration, and I do have my reasons for believing it, but it’s up to you whether you believe it or not. Either way, I hope you accept my apology for the rude stuff I said to you.

    Why do you keep insisting Cate Blanchett is a man???

    What is up with all this foolishness? This article has nothing to do with Mel B., Mariah Carey or Cate Blanchette. Anonymous, why don’t you grow up?
