Avril Lavigne might be in rehab

Avril Lavigne has been having a bit of a rough time lately. Her marriage to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger is apparently in trouble and according to some private messages she shared with a fan earlier this month, she’s been experiencing some undisclosed “health issues”:

Huh. Sounds pretty serious, eh? Well, according to some reports, the “health issues” Avril is experiencing are basically the result of partying too hard, and she’s apparently been spending time in rehab to get her shit together… at least according to Star Magazine.

After dropping out of the public eye for more than two months and refusing to answer to concerned love ones, the startling note had everyone wondering what’s wrong with the singer. “The buzz in her inner circle is that she’s been in rehab for depression and substance abuse issues,” a source close to the singer says. “Avril was an emotional wreck over her marital problems, and she turned to partying to deal with the pain.”

Basically, she’s headed for divorce and between her failed marriage and the fact that her career is pretty much over, she’s losing it bigtime.

And now, it appears that partying away her problems has damaged her health. “Avril feels more alone now than ever and just wants to make it through this,” the source adds. “Everyone hopes that if she is indeed with rehab, it serves her well and she learns better coping mechanisms. She’s got a lot of wonderful people in her life; she just needs to swallow her pride and embrace them.”

Huh. Here’s hoping whatever’s going on gets sorted out soon.

Kourtney Kardashian’s new son has a royal name

kourtney kardashian reign aston

Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to her third child with Scott Disick, a little boy, last week, and the world waited with bated breath for the answer to one very simple question: WHAT’S HIS NAME?! We now have an answer to that question, although I must warn you, it is a tad disappointing.

Kourtney revealed her son’s royal name on Instagram, as you do, along with above photo:

“Madly in love with my little Reign Aston Disick.”

Seriously? Reign? I mean, Mason and Penelope are slightly less common, but they were at least not ridiculous. Reign is a female stripper’s stage name – and there’s no shade to that, because it’s an AMAZING stripper name. Obviously the middle name, Aston, is Scott’s doing and probably after the Aston Marton sports car, if I had to guess. I don’t know, guys, this one just seems a wee bit tacky to me.

Elton John and David Furnish are officially married

Elton John and David Furnish have been together for absolutely ages – they’ve actually been civil partners since 2005 – and this weekend, they made things official with a lavish wedding ceremony at home in England.

From BBC News:

The couple have been hosting a ceremony at their Windsor estate in Berkshire with a number of stars in attendance.

David and Victoria Beckham, musician Ed Sheeran and actor David Walliams were among the guests.

The couple’s sons Zachary, who was born in 2010, and Elijah, born last year attended the ceremony.

Cute! It’s nice to see love being celebrated and I’m sure it was a fantastic day. They initially announced their plans to get properly married back in March, and they’ve managed to turn it all around in under a year, which is pretty impressive. Though I suppose with millions of dollars at your disposal, that’s a whole lot easier.

Congrats, in any case!

Mariah Carey “accidentally” caught on tape hitting that high note

mariah carey

Live performances haven’t necessarily been going too well for Mariah Carey lately – she’s been bombing in concert, on live TV, you name it. But just because Mariah’s voice isn’t quite what it used to be doesn’t mean she can’t still sing. In fact, she’s apparently been killing it during a series of New York City concerts this past week and also, oh, she was “accidentally” caught on tape doing vocal exercises and hitting that high as hell note she’s most well known for:


4th show! Chopsticks???

Um vídeo publicado por Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey) em

It’s sad as hell that Mariah, who is an actual diva in every sense of the world, feels desperate enough to prove that she’s still got it that she’ll stage a fake ass “surprise” video. I mean, those acting skills? Stop. Ariana Grande must really have her shook! Ha!


Starting now!!!

Khloe Kardashian is starving herself to lose weight

Khloe Kardashian has always got the short end of the Kardashian/Jenner stick. She’s seen as the “fat” one, the “ugly” one, the one that’s possibly not even really Robert Kardashian’s daughter, she married a crackhead, she may or may not be able to have kids even though she’s the one that wanted them most, yada yada. It’s not right and I feel bad for the girl – especially when you considered that even her own family treats her like shit half the time (you may or may not have seen this/heard about it, but Kim Kardashian – yes, she with the biggest ass on earth – had the nerve to say in last week’s ep of Keeping up with the Kardashians that Khloe needs to lose weight… because her ass is too big).

In any case, apparently all this pressure to slim down has apparently pushed Khloe over the edge and she’s reportedly starving herself now in an effort to get skinny.

A klose family insider have told OK Magazine: “Khloe is beating herself up big time, because she’s tried everything to shed the pounds.” Considering that she lost so much weight this year, and have been rumored to follow Kim’s path in posing for Playboy, how come she’s unhappy?

According to her trainer Gunnar Peterson, Khloe has been doing extra work at the gym to sweat it out. “Khloe is always trying to get better. She’s not obsessed or a crazy lady about it, it’s just about the work,” he said. “Khloe has her head down. She’s got a steady work ethic and there’s no over analysis.”

However, her gym routine doesn’t seem to work since there are rumours that she’s “starving herself” because it’s really hard to lose the weight. Her ultimate goal is to be in the same figure as her ikonik sister Kim. The insider added, “Everyone tells her she looks fantastic and should embrace her curves, but however much she protests, Khloe would give anything to be as slim as her sisters.”

“She hates her thighs and arms especially, and although she’s looked into various plastic surgery procedures she’s conscious these are only a quick fix.”

I mean, this HAS to be bullshit, right? First of all, I bet you Khloe is ALREADY thinner than Kim – I don’t think Kim is fat (and I also don’t think anyone deserves to be criticized or ridiculed even if they are fat), but she’s about 5 feet tall and is definitely not what anyone would call “skinny”. Khloe is about a foot taller with a completely different body structure – and guess what, she’s also ALREADY THIN.

This family’s obsession with this false perfection is sickening and extremely sad.

President Obama called James Franco “James Flacco”

President Obama Holds News Conference Before Hawaii Vacation

Everyone is talking about Sony’s decision to bow to the demands of the Guardians of Peace hackers by not only canceling the release of the Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy The Interview, but to delete every sign of the movie’s existence online, deleting its official website, trailer, etc.

We all have our opinions on the situation, even President Barack Obama. He thinks the whole thing is a bit of a mess. I mean, who gets upset over a movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco? Yeah, you heard me right – Joe Flacco… the Baltimore Ravens quarterback? Yikes. That’s right, Obama confused these two men when discussing the North Korea fiasco:

james franco james flacco

I mean, we all make mistakes, right? At least John Travolta probably feels a little less alone these days…
