Demi Lovato is great and all, and I’m glad that she can be an inspiration to so many young girls who have suffered from (or are still suffering from) an eating disorder, bipolar disorder and/or self-harming. I gotta say, though – I wish she’d sorta change the record a bit. She’s “opened up” so many times about her struggles, her trip to rehab and subsequent recovery that I feel like I’ve been brainwashed like Zoolander was by Mugatu, except instead of killing the Prime Minister of Malaysia, I’m just… tired of hearing this f-cking story.
Struggling with depression, bipolar disorder and an eating disorder through her pre-teen and teenage years is something that Lovato has been outspoken about. At age 11, she said, she started cutting herself.
“I had been battling with depression for years, and an eating disorder for years, and I had been self-harming, and other things, self-medicating, and I just wasn’t happy anymore, and I needed to, I needed to change my life,” Lovato said. “There were times beforehand where I had had meltdowns, or things like that, and my mom begged me to go into treatment, but I told her I would get better.”
Finally, she realized she needed to get help.
“When I finally didn’t get better, I knew that I was in trouble, and I knew that I couldn’t do it on my own,” she said. “So, whether I liked it or not, if I wanted to continue to live, and have a long career, or just be happy, then I needed to listen to what my management team and my family was saying, and go into treatment.”
Lovato went through two stints in rehab, and while she said it helped, she still battles with her disorders every day. She recently became an honorary chairwoman for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Day, hosted by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to help raise awareness.
“I can’t sit here and say that I am Miss Recovery … that I’ll be that way for the rest of my life,” she said. “You don’t know, and that’s why you have to take it a day at a time.”
I don’t want to reduce the seriousness of what Demi went through (and is still going through – you’re not just miraculously better overnight from these issues) or the work she’s doing now to raise awareness for others, but I sort of feel bad that this is such a central focus of ANY press done about her these days. She’s got a new single out that’s doing fantastic, but I guarantee that any article about her or interview with her you see will talk about her mental health issues, etc.

Mary J Blige was revealed to owe the state of New Jersey $900,000 in back taxes earlier this year, but turns out, the fun doesn’t end there. She’s now been hit with another massive tax bill, this one totaling a mindblowing $3.4 million. Uh oh.
The IRS filed a federal tax lien against the Grammy winner, claiming she failed to pay all her income taxes for the years 2009 ($574,907.30), 2010 ($2,203,743.53) and 2011 ($647,604.60).
Tax bill grand total: $3,426,255.43. Translation: A LOT OF FREAKING MONEY.
Of course, the IRS needs to get in line … the State of NJ says MJB still owes $901,769.65 in back taxes. Blige is being sued for allegedly defaulting on a $2.2 million bank loan and her charity is facing a lawsuit that claims it took out a $250k loan and never paid it back.
Blige’s rep tells us, “Mary has been and is continuing to work with her new team to resolve all these issues as quickly as possible.”
Damn. I freaked out when I realised I owed the government a grand, and they hounded me for that money like there was no tomorrow, so I bet Mary’s in deep shit. I don’t think she’ll be footing anyone else’s bill
for a long time.

In between sexting with Ke$ha and singing some awful (but awfully catchy) songs for screaming throngs of pre-teens, there’s one thing Harry Styles likes to do, and it’s cleaning. He’s so into cleaning, in fact, that he’s starting to drive some of his One Direction bandmates a little insane.
From The Daily Star:
Hazza, 19, is so obsessed with keeping their 30-foot tour bus clean he makes his pals wear slippers so they don’t dirty the floor.
A crew member told us: “Harry loves everything to be neat and tidy. He’s fixated with keeping the tour bus clean.
“He watches to make sure no-one drops food anywhere and asked people to leave their shoes at the door and wear slippers.
“He went to a supermarket and bought a ton of cleaning products as he didn’t think the bus was clean enough.
“Everyone has their own quirky habits, but we all call him Mrs Mop.”
I don’t see how wanting to be clean is a “quirk”. I mean, I used to be messy as hell until I grew up and realised how disgusting and lazy it is not to clean up after yourself and keep your living space tidy. Now I live with a roommate who will cook three meals a day and pile the dishes up for at least two days before she thinks about washing them. NOT COOL, people. Not cool.
You go, Mrs Mop.

Jon Bon Jovi‘s been touring for about eight gazillion years and he’s still raking in the money, so I think he knows a thing or two about hitting the road and keeping fans happy. That’s why, instead of speaking up urging Justin Bieber to stop being an asshole and a waste of space, he’s instead warning Baby Elvis against showing up late for his shows, because people don’t like waiting. Well, okay.
From The London Evening Standard:
Jon Bon Jovi has branded Justin Bieber an “asshole” for emerging on stage two hours late for a concert at the O2 arena.
The 51-year-old rock singer, who has a reputation as one of the hardest-working men in music, claimed the teenage star risks alienating his fans if he continues to disappoint.
Bieber later blamed “technical issues” and claimed he was only 40 minutes late for the show in March.
Jon, speaking to the Standard in Vienna on the latest leg of the band’s Because We Can world tour, said: “Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new.
“They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives — or in that kid’s case, 80 minutes of their lives.
“Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool — you’re an asshole. Go to f***in’ work!”
Well, I guess he did mention him being an asshole, after all. And while this is a definite symptom of asshole-ism, it’s certainly not the only one. That being said, one of my Top 5 pet peeves is sitting around waiting for people who can’t be bothered to show up to shit on time. I managed to get here, why couldn’t you? Take that tardy for the party bullshit elsewhere, ‘cos I’m not having it. I was raised to be five minutes early to shit – the world doesn’t wait for you, you know?
