In the age of selfies, social media and streaming videos, the idea of what makes a celebrity has expanded far beyond the Hollywood icons of the past. Now scientists, technology geeks, designers, writers and YouTube stars achieve fame alongside athletes and entertainers.

Curators at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery have examined how celebrity images are cultivated and how they’ve evolved for the new exhibition “Eye Pop: The Celebrity Gaze,” opening Friday.

The exhibition includes dozens of new paintings, photographs, sculptures and digital portraits by leading artists that the museum acquired in recent years. “Eye Pop” will be on view through July 2016.

Curators narrowed their list to 54 influential figures still living and active in their fields. Images of Brad Pitt, Barbra Streisand, Oprah Winfrey and Katy Perry made the cut, along with the founders of Google, star architect Cesar Pelli and food-to-table pioneer Alice Waters.

George Clooney took to Graham Norton’s red sofa this week to talk up his new sci-fi action film Tomorrowland, and revealed that his acting career may see a hitch in the near future – as his on-going prank feud with Brad Pitt may land him in jail.

“I’m not sure how it started but we have done some terrible things to each other,” he revealed during the interview. “I had some stationery made up with his name on and would then send letters to other actors from Brad Pitt. I sent Meryl Streep a letter from him with a whole stack of dialect coach CDs saying that they may help her for her role in the Iron Lady.”

Claiming that Brad and his victims often don’t realise they’ve been pranked until a year or two down the line, he claimed that his current practical joke may have more serious consequences.

“I’m doing one now that I can’t tell you about but in a year you are going to hear I’ve been arrested – I’m not kidding because I think I’ve crossed the line,” he joked. “It’s exciting. But, I have a wife, she’s a barrister, I’ll be fine!”

In 2011, Brad Pitt – on behalf of his Make it Right Foundation made a promise to the Fort Peck Indian Reservation that his non-profit would build 20 environmentally friendly homes at no cost to the Fort Peck Community.

Though Pitt stated the homes would be free, a reported $600,000 was fronted by Fort Peck tribal leaders and a plethora of problems continued to rear their heads in the face of developing the homes. In addition to sewage and land infrastructure problems, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also weighed in on the project – adding to the series of delays.

With all said, Taylor Royle, Communications Director of the Make it Right Foundation informed ICTMN, that the homes are on their way to finally being completed after several years of frustrating delays.

“Our first 10 homes are currently under construction and should be completed in July. We expect the remaining 10 homes (20 total) to be completed in the fall,” wrote Royle in an email to ICTMN.

Care to Learn was founded in 2008 by Springfield businessman, Doug Pitt, with support from his brother, actor Brad Pitt.

The Pitt brothers had grown up in the region and Doug still lives in the area with his family. Learning of the high incidence of extreme poverty in his own hometown, Doug shared the challenge with family and friends and founded Care to Learn.

Since then, Care to Learn has funded 500,000 individual children’s health, hunger, and hygiene needs.

Now in the St. Charles, Wentzville, and Hazelwood districts in our region, Care to Learn St. Louis is hosting a charity fundraiser. This fun-filled day (for all ages) will have a polo match at the Blue Heron Farm in Defiance.
