Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have a way kewl and modern approach to parenting Willow & Jaden: treat them like adults! They may end up with a completely warped view of reality and might even want to emancipate themselves prior to reaching legal age, but, by golly, won’t you be smiled upon in the parenting community!
We respect our children the way we would respect any other person. Things like cleaning up their room. You would never tell a full-grown adult to clean their room, so we don’t tell our kids to clean their rooms. Actually, we tell our kids ‘you don’t have a room, that’s our room and we are letting you borrow it.’ So the same way you would say to an adult if you let them use car, you say, ‘Yo man, clean my car! Don’t drive around all filthy like that!’ And it’s perfectly reasonable for you to want an adult to clean your car, so we feel it’s perfectly reasonable to ask our kids to clean the rooms that we are letting them use.
Alright, that I can get down with. However, there are going to be times your 14-year-old gives you shit because they don’t feel like doing what you’ve asked them to do and they don’t give you the same respect you give them, and that’s when you have to lay down the law. But Will’s laying it down in a different way: by totally embarrassing Jaden over those emancipation rumours.
Yeah, that was a joke! I made a joke. He is definitely not going anywhere; he is so scared of being out on his own. Willow is probably going to be emancipated before Jaden! I think I was in Tokyo where I made a joke that if he has a day where his movie is bigger than one of mine then there’s no reason for him to live in my house. His 15th birthday is coming up so he can probably be emancipated.
I don’t really get the joke, but whatevs. This whole family is meant to come off as so likeable and together, but there’s something just bizarre of them. You know, besides their massively inflated egos and the weird marriage shit.
I doubt a leak is ever unintentional these days, but let’s play along and say that Ciara‘s new track ‘I’m Out’, which features Nicki Minaj, has hit the internet and we’re all surprised because we weren’t supposed to hear it yet. How do these things happen, gosh darnit? It wasn’t ready yet!!!
The track will appear on Ciara’s upcoming self-titled collection and is the follow up to her first single, ‘Body Party’, which wasn’t all that great. It’s been a long while since Ciara really had a killer track (‘Ride It’ being probably the most recent), and her feud with Rihanna won’t help, but bless her heart, she’s trying.
What do you think of ‘I’m Out’? Forgettable? Possibly a grower? Total snoozefest?
Avril Lavigne has always insisted that she’s just soooo punk rock, despite the fact that she grew up as a Shania Twain fangirl and her version of punk included some Dickies and wearing a tie, but whatevs. Now she’s taken it to a whole other level by teaming up with her longtime palMarilyn Manson for a duet called ‘Bad Girl’, which will feature on her new album. Not only did they make magic in the studio, but Marilyn also convinced her to shave the side of her head and helped her get the job done. Oh, Marilyn – such a troll!
“It was last minute,” Lavigne said of recruiting Manson for the track. “I was sitting there at the board thinking Manson would be perfect on this track, so I texted him, and he’s like, ‘I’ll come over and I’ll hear it.’ So he came at 4 o’clock in the morning. … Yes, it was one of those nights.”
The Manson/Lavigne duo may seem like an unlikely one, but they are actually longtime friends. (Lavigne first met the rocker at one of his concerts when she was 18.) In fact, he is the one responsible for Lavigne’s half-shaved haircut that she sported last year.
“I had wanted to shave the side of my head for quite some time, and I used to put it in a braid there [side of her head] and so it was kind of like shaving it,” Lavigne said “And then one night, it was on my adventure to France. During my adventure when I was living there, we were hanging out backstage and we were with his band having a few drinks and I was like, ‘Let’s shave my head. I’m ready; let’s do this!’ He’s like that, though. He has fun. He wears his makeup; his wardrobe is very visual. I like his style.”
LOL. I dunno what to even say about this, it’s all so LOL to me. It also makes him a hell of a lot less cool in my eyes. And by “cool” I mean a tolerable, pretty innocuous and misunderstood bro who gets off on being a weirdo but isn’t hurting anybody. There’s only one question left: will Marilyn be bridesmaid at Avril’s wedding?
Lindsay Lohan can’t catch a break. They took her freedom and they took her Adderall, and now they want to take what little money she’s got left, too. You see, she’s being sued for $5 million by the company that released her line of leggings, who claim that her “drug-addled image” caused low sales. Uh, you do realise that you signed a deal with LINDSAY LOHAN, right? This wasn’t Taylor Swift’s legging line and Lindsay just showed up the day of the shoot. What the hell is wrong with people?
An apparel manufacturer that partnered with Lohan’s leggings line 6126 is firing back at the actress’ 2013 lawsuit over a licensing dispute, claiming that the embattled star’s tarnished reputation severely hampered the company’s ability to suitably peddle her clothing line to buyers.
In a $5 million breach-of-contract counter claim filed against Lohan Friday in a California U.S. District Court and obtained by E! News, clothing company DNAM alleges that while the starlet’s leggings line initially enjoyed some success at department stores in 2010, buyers eventually began to pull back “because they did not want to be associated with Lohan’s drug addled image.”
The complaint states that in the spring of 2011, buyers canceled appointments and customers canceled orders, noting that “no one would touch the line.” Lohan, who was in rehab at the time, was unable to endorse the brand or provide feedback, the lawsuit alleges.
The company claims that Lohan’s legal troubles and her supposed drug and alcohol addictions devalued the brand, and it its seeking $5 million in damages.
I just… don’t get what’s wrong with people. Newsflash: If you enter a legal agreement to produce and sell Lindsay Lohan’s clothing, you’d better be prepared for people who don’t like Lindsay Lohan not to buy it and for sales to suffer because of it. It’s not like her popularity JUST took a nosedive (and in fact it’s not her popularity that’s waned, it’s her reputation/respectability), so these people need to STFU.
Bill Hader, a very recent Saturday Night Live alum, did an interview with Howard Stern and gave us some tidbits about working on SNL. And thus, the tale of two Justins. From Uproroxx:
Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys. And every time, backstage is a very small constructed place, he had a guy holding a slice of pizza, a guy holding a Diet Coke. You were trying to fight around all these people to get dressed. [Justin] Timberlake, it was just him. He’s a real class act, that guy.
I think we’ve established by now that Justin Bieber is an entitled spoiled brat, but it’s still so very refreshing to hear. I get that people love Justin Timberlake, though I am not one of them. I think he is annoying. BUT I would choose to hang out with him over Bieber any day. Especially because Justin Bieber would force me to surrender my basic rights and my safety if I wanted to party at his house. From the Los Angeles Times:
Justin Bieber may sue guests who visit his home if they violate his non-disclosure agreement. The 19-year-old pop star is asking for $5 million in damages if guests violate a waiver he’s having everyone who visits his Calabasas home sign, according to TMZ, which obtained a copy of the liability waiver and release form.
The document will legally bind anyone who shares the goings-on inside his home to confidentiality. That includes “physical health, or the philosophical, spiritual or other views or characteristics of the Released Parties [Bieber], along with any and all photographs, likeness, tapes, films, videos and other recordings,” which are all deemed confidential.
“Under no circumstances will you divulge the details of you entering and being on the Property or engaging in the Activities by any means or through any media whatsoever, including without limitation, through photographs, video, blogging, texting, ‘Tweeting’ or posting any such information on any social media site,” the waiver said.
There’s also a clause that limits Bieber’s liability for any physical harm that happens on the property, warning visitors of activities that might be “potentially hazardous and you should not participate unless you are medically able and properly trained.” You know, things like “minor injuries to catastrophic injuries, including death.”
Apparently it’s common for celebs to have these waivers, and I completely understand the anti social media part, but I still think this one is excessive and also f-ck Justin Bieber.
