Hey! You made it to our ‘About’ page. Welcome.
That’s Nehal (rhymes with Amal, you know that humanitarian superstar married to George?) pictured above. She’s an award-winning news presenter and former red carpet reporter, a chocoholic, an Opraholic, proud mum of 3 and our founder at CelebrityKind News.
She’s interviewed some awesome people over the last decade including Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, The Rock and Matt Damon and loved learning about how they are all giving back to people and communities in need.
Frustrated by the constant lies, gossip and bullying that seem to dominate celebrity news, Nehal decided it was time to change the dialogue. In 2019, she started CelebrityKind, a positive celebrity news site dedicated to the humanitarian work, kindness, fun and achievements of celebrities.
And yeah, we do things a little differently around here…
You’ll notice there are no intrusive paparazzi photos on this site, only ones where celebs have implied consent like at red carpet events. You won’t find any photos of the children of celebrities either (hell yes to Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s #NoKidsPolicy) unless they are public figures themselves and even then, we think about the impact of sharing the photos first. You won’t read stories that body-shame or tear women down or pit people against each other. We don’t do baby/wedding news until the celebrities themselves are ready to share that info (because we believe in privacy and allowing them to share personal stuff on their own terms). And you won’t find any gossip or stories from unnamed mystery sources because playing with people’s lives and mental health for entertainment and clicks just doesn’t sit right with us.
So… what’s left?
Content that recognises celebrities as the humans they are. The stuff that celebrates their hearts and their minds and the ways they are using their influence to create change. The truth, not gossip.
And sure, we’ll throw in the odd story about Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds pranking each other, because celebrity news was always meant to be fun!
Through CelebrityKind, Nehal’s hope is to create pop culture content that inspires us all to be the best version of ourselves, and generate awareness about how the media we click on, respond to and share ultimately shapes the world we live in.
