You guys know I care about you, right? That I hate being the bearer of bad news? Good. Unfortunately, it’s just part of the job sometimes, and today is one of those days. I hope you’re sitting down to read this, because it’s a real doozy. Jaden Smith has quit Twitter, you guys. He didn’t even tell anyone he was going to do it. One day he was there, and the next he was gone. How could this be?!
I mean, I know Joss Whedon deleted his Twitter, too – but that was over White Widow bullshit (and was a pansy move, I have to say – can’t take the criticism?) but Jaden was an absolute hero of the social media site and his absence has touched many. Don’t believe me? Just look:
jaden smith's philosophical twitter account is gone and i'm so upset we'll never see more tweets like this pic.twitter.com/RvAo30PFLg
I mean, look – the kid is nutso. Insane in the membrane. And I loved it! Who knows, maybe he’s just being dramatic and he’ll be back. We used to do that with our Open Diary and Livejournal accounts back in the day all the time.
It was only March when Chris Brown‘s probation – which had been ongoing for the last 5+ years – was finally over… despite the fact that he’d had it revoked yet again just 2 months prior. He’s a free man, and – if you were to listen to him – a reformed one. He’s got a daughter now, after all, and he’s grown a lot. Which is why I’m sure we’re all completely shocked and devastated to learn that he’s yet again a suspect in an assault in Las Vegas over… a basketball game.
The altercation went down at the Palms Casino Resort — according to police … Chris was playing hoops at 3:42 AM and at some point he got into an argument with one of the guys playing — and allegedly punched him. The pickup game was being played in the famous Hardwood Suite … where Chris was staying.
Police responded to the scene, but didn’t talk to Brown when they got there.
Cops say Chris now has 2 options: either sign a citation for misdemeanor battery, and agree to show up in court to face the charge — OR take his chances with the D.A … who would decide whether to press charges.
TMZ broke the story … Brown just settled a lawsuit over another fight during a pickup basketball game in an L.A. gym.
You know, I do truly want to believe that there’s good in everyone, but this scumbag is the exception to the rule. He is absolute walking garbage and clearly has no interest in – or intention of seeking – redemption of any sort. What an asshole.
I just don’t know about this one, guys. I wish I did, but I don’t. Apparently Justin Timberlake has a tequila company called Sauza 901 and for a new video advertising the brand, he decided to dress like a lime. I don’t know if this is genius or terrifying or a combination of both.
I don’t want to ruin too much of this with commentary, because I truly believe it speaks for itself. What it’s saying, I’m… not really sure. But please take 3 minutes and 19 seconds out of your day to enjoy/be perplexed by this. You haven’t lived until you’ve watched Justin Timberlake as a human lime.
The last we heard from Ireland Baldwin, she was having an on-again, off-again relationship with Angel Haze. They later broke up and I guess Ireland was really going through some shit, because the next thing we knew, she went off to rehab to deal with everything. She’s now officially out, though she plans to continue participating in the center’s programs as she works on her recovery.
The 19-year-old model checked out of SOBA Recovery Center in Malibu, California, after three weeks of treatment for emotional trauma but will still participate in the facility’s programs, a source tells PEOPLE
She seems to be back in the swing of things, if her Twitter and Instagram accounts are anything to go by (and are they ever, really?). Hopefully she’s feeling better. Also, Hopefully she and Angel rekindle things because I actually think they were a pretty cute couple. Then again, if Ireland is working on herself right now, it’s probably for the best that she’s not with anyone at all, for the time being.
What do you think of her new, darker hair? I almost didn’t recognize her!
Everyday is a blessing. You don't even know the half.
Have you ever seen a family less aware of the world around them than the Kardashian/Jenner clan? Every single member – save for maybe Bruce, but he stayed with Kris for, like, 25 years, so I question his judgment, as well – lives in the clouds and has no idea how life actually works for most people. That’s the only reason I can imagine that Kylie and Kendall Jenner thought it would be a great idea to try and trademark their names.
It’s all part of the Kardashian’s blitzkrieg campaign. We’ve learned Kylie Jenner has filed an application last month to trademark her first name to “entertainment in the nature of providing information by means of a global computer network in the fields of entertainment, fashion and pop culture.”
Kylie also wants to mark her territory for personal appearances “by a celebrity, actress and model.”
Although someone might theoretically use the name “Kylie” with a different font, K.J.’s lawyers could swoop in and argue it creates confusion among consumers. So Kylie Minogue, move over.
BTW … Kendall has filed an application to trademark her first name for the same purposes.
Guys, I wish I was joking. When I first read this, I thought I had accidentally clicked on The Onion because it’s too ridiculous even for them. At least Kendall has a “job” as a model for now, while she’s the flavour of the month. Kylie does absolutely fuck all besides try to look like Kim and date a grown ass man who’s been with her since before she was legal.
Plus, clearly no one has introduced Kylie to the ORIGINAL and forever queen of the name:
Last night was the annual event we all look forward to more than any other for its sheer ridiculousness: The Met Gala. This year’s theme for the Costume Institute Benefit Gala was ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’, and the results were… mixed. Some people totally got into the obscene gaudiness of it all, as you can tell with our good old friend Sarah Jessica Parker above. She truly embraced the spirit of the Met Gala, so we have to applaud her for that… even if her ensemble is God awful. Worse than Rihanna‘s? That’s debatable.
The fashion was worth examining more closely, either way. It should go without saying that behind the cut, things get SUPER image heavy, so if you’re on a slow connection (does that even exist anymore?), proceed with caution.
Oh, Nick Loeb. So sad, so very, very sad… in every sense, both emotionally and pathetically. After he gave Sofia Vergara an ultimatum to have kids now or split, she walked out on him and he didn’t take it so well – especially since she quickly moved on to serious upgrade, Joe Manganiello. Now he’s boo hoo-ing to anyone who will listen about how badly he wants to keep embryos they’d frozen together WHEN THEY WERE TOGETHER even though he signed a contract admitting that, you know, he can’t do that without her agreement. He’s an asshole, and finally Sofia has spoken about this whole mess publicly for the first time since it all kicked off.
Sofia was on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show on Monday and he asked her how she’s feeling as she’s going through all this BS. Her response was priceless:
“I’m not going through anything. He’s going through it.”
“A child needs a mother and a loving relationship with parents who don’t hate each other. I don’t hate him but obviously he has a problem. A kid needs parents. I wouldn’t want to bring kids to the world where it’s already set against them. It would be so selfish.”
“You sign papers. If it was so serious for him, this issue, which I totally respect because it’s serious. Then you should’ve taken it more seriously at the time. There is a contract. He can’t do anything…. We did it two times. You make the mistake the first time. Two times? And now you want to change your mind?! …You have to follow what you sign!”
“I’m okay. I didn’t do anything wrong. This is a year later.”
Get ‘em, girl! This whole “case” is pretty much non-existent and the most obvious thing ever. Loeb has no case and he needs to see a therapist because he obviously has some serious issues to work through.
