*Misty Copeland and Tracy Morgan are among Barbara Walter’s list of “Most Fascinating People 2015,” a nod both stars deserve, with Copeland being the first woman of color to be named as the American Ballet Theatre Principal dancer back in June. Morgan survived a tragic car accident last year and has since made a remarkable return.
What’s more, New Line has optioned Copeland’s 2014 autobiography, “Life in Motion”; a documentary about her life, “A Ballerina’s Tale,” was released in October; and the ballerina is collaborating with writer Tracy Oliver to create a drama about aspiring dancers.
Other celebs on Walter’s list include Amy Schumer, UFC fighter Ronda Rousey, Bradley Cooper, Donna Karan, and Bernie Sanders. Previous fascinating people has been Oprah Winfrey, President and First Lady Obama, Tyler Perry, Maya Angelou, and Jay Z, among others.
As Billboard notes, the individual claiming the number #1 spot as ‘most fascinating of them all’ will be unveiled during the program. “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015” airs Dec. 17 on ABC.
Meanwhile, pop singer Ciara didn’t make Barbara’s list this year, but it is quite fascinating that she is said to be fluent in 5 different languages! She posted an Instagram video demonstrating her fluency in Spanish, French, German, Japanese, and Cantonese, check it out below.
“I Truly Appreciate The Different Cultures Of The World,” she captioned the video.
As you know, Ciara has been dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russel Wilson since April, and despite the couple often using the press to help elevate their relationship, Ciara says she isn’t ready to move on to the next level, as she’s content with simply being Wilson’s girlfriend.
“Isn’t that a guy conversation?” Ciara told Entertainment Tonight when asked if wedding bells could be looming for her and Wilson. “You talk to the guy about that stuff, right?”
