Malaysian actress Janna Nick apologises for mocking K-pop star
Kuala Lumpur — Blinks (fans of BLACKPINK) and netizens were furious when Malaysian actress Janna Nick mocked BLACKPINK member Lisa by naming a character in her telefilm Lisa Blackpig. Janna has since apologised for her action. The actress, whose real name is Nurul Jannah Muner, is the director and producer of Delen, which includes an “attention-seeking” antagonist named after the K-pop singer.
In a virtual press conference on Feb 25, Nick apologised following a backlash against an Instagram post in which the character was introduced. “As the director and producer of the telefilm Delen , I take responsibility and apologise to all who were offended and hurt by the (Instagram) caption,” said the 25-year-old.
But Nick’s lawyer, Ben Syazmin, said his client will be pursuing legal action against those who “slandered” her on social media. The lawyer justified the existence of the Lisa Blackpig character by claiming that she is a “tribute” to BLACKPINK’s Lisa.
“Lisa Blackpig does not represent Lisa from BLACKPINK in any way.
“She is a tribute to Lisa from BLACKPINK as the movie character could never be on the same level as her (BLACKPINK’s Lisa),” said Ben.
Hashtags #JannaNickGoingToJailParty and #JannaNickIsGoingToJail topped Malaysian Twitter trends list on Monday as angry K-pop fans took to social media to slam Nick for mocking Lisa. K-pop fans were also enraged when an old video of Nick laughing at the death of Shinee singer Jonghyun in 2017 also resurfaced amidst the backlash.
According to Malay Mail Online , Nick lodged a report with the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) on Monday against individuals for allegedly defaming her and staining her reputation as an actress.
Born on June 1, 1995, Nurul Jannah binti Muner, known professionally as Janna Nick, is a Malaysian actress and singer. She is known for her roles in television films such as Syurga Nur , Kau Aku Kita , Suami Tanpa Cinta and My Coffee Prince . She began her feature film debut with Kimchi Untuk Awak (2017).
In 2016, Nick began her music career with the release of her debut single, “Mungkin Saja”, followed by her follow-up single, “Akan Bercinta”. /TISG

The secret is out. Billie Eilish confirms for the first time in her new documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry, that she was in a relationship with Brandon Quention Adams. Viewers get the first glimpse of the five-time Grammy winner, 19, and the rapper, 24, together in footage of them backstage at one of her three concerts at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles in November 2018. At the time, she was 16 and he was 22. “Hey, Q,” she exclaims as the two embrace in a long hug. “You look good as hell.” The nearly two-and-a-half-hour film, which is now streaming on Apple TV+, then cuts to a montage of Eilish and Q holding hands while ice skating at her 17th birthday party. “He’s so fine,” she raves while looking at a photo on her iPhone of them cuddling on a couch. “Oh, my gosh.” Q, who performs under the stage name 7:AMP, makes several onscreen appearances in the documentary as the ups and downs of his relationship with the “Bad Guy” singer play out. At one point, ahead of the March 2019 release of her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, Eilish giddily tells her then-boyfriend over the phone, “I love you. I’m in love with you.” But after he admits to drunk driving only days later, she scolds him, “I don’t want you to do that. I feel like you don’t take me seriously when I say that. I just want you safe.” The “Therefore I Am” singer hits a breaking point with Q in April 2019. Although he travels to Indio, California, to support her at her first-ever Coachella performance, she is visibly frustrated when he does not make time to meet up with her afterward. She later tells her parents, Patrick O’Connell and Maggie Baird, that a “self-destructive” Q broke his hand by punching a wall, which worries her father in particular. Not long after, Eilish confirms they broke up, saying, “I just wasn’t happy, and I didn’t want the same things he wanted, and I don’t think that’s fair for him. I don’t think you should be in a relationship super excited about certain things that the other person couldn’t care less about. I don’t think that’s fair to you. I didn’t think that was fair to him. And there was just a lack of effort, I think. I literally was just like, ‘Dude, you don’t even have enough love to love yourself. You can’t love me, dude. And you don’t. You think you do.’” She adds, “I don’t want to fix him. I can’t fix him. I’ve tried.” Scroll down for five things to know about Q.
Pop star Ellie Goulding has revealed she’s eight-months pregnant.An unexpected surprise, the 34-year-old singer and husband Caspar Jopling, 29, weren’t planning on a pandemic pregnancy – it ‘was not the plan,’ she told Vogue. “The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality,” she says, adding that she’s enjoying the way her body has changed. “Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly,…
The best coming-of-age movie of 2021 revolves around an introspective California teen who just happens to be a multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning international superstar. As if Billie Eilish weren’t already a prominent voice of her generation. The documentary is Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, streaming on Apple TV+ on Friday, February 26, and as you may have surmised, it’s an intimate fly-on-the-wall glimpse of the singer attempting to navigate the most extraordinary 12 months of her life. The journey starts with Eilish, 19, in her bedroom with her older brother, Finneas O’Connell, scribbling lyrics in her notebook that would eventually filter into her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? It ends with her collecting five trophies at the 2020 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year. She was 18. In between, Eilish breaks Spotify records, tours the world, meets awestruck A-list fans and records the theme song for the new James Bond movie. She has enough poise to tell screaming iPhone-clad fans during her Coachella set in 2019, “In life, we tend to do things and then we’re always looking forward to the next thing everything is about what’s happening right now … And this is happening right now. So why don’t we be in the moment, yeah?” Almost 20 tracks are featured in all, with many heard in their entirety during performance clips. This documentary is at its most engaging when Eilish is Just Like Us. It’s easy to relate when she makes up silly handshakes with Finneas and practically skips across the front lawn upon getting her driver’s license. Like any angsty 18-year-old, she’s also prone to mood swings, eye-rolling and spats with her parents. The differentiating factor here is that she argues with them about her attitude during a backstage meet-and-greet with record label VIPs. (Thankfully, director R.J. Cutler never cuts from the drama to some music expert sitting in a chair expounding on Eilish’s genius.) These raw moments help justify the film’s extremely generous 140-minute running time. Oh, and to be clear about Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry: There are also revelations galore, from her Justin Bieber crush to her real-life heartbreak. Scroll through for more.
The movies have masterfully exploited viewers’ terror of heights, bats, rats, sharks, spiders, and snakes over the years, and for anyone whose greatest fear is growing old and lapsing into frightened confusion, “The Father” will be their “Jaws.” Not that first-time director Florian Zeller (co-adapting his own play with Christopher Hampton) is making a ghoulish or garish horror show out of a difficult and sensitive subject, far from it. But as…
