Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda speaks out on mental health

robin williams zelda williams

Zelda Williams is still coming to terms with her father, Robin Williams‘, suicide. However, she’s still speaking out in the hope of helping others avoid the same fate that her father met and urging people to seek help for depression and other mental illnesses. Here’s what she had to say on World Mental Health Day:

“Mental illness is often misunderstood & misrepresented, but that’s starting to change. Let’s end the stigma. Mental health IS as important as physical health, & whether there are visible signs or not, the suffering is real. It can affect EVERYONE.” 

“Let’s stop the misconceptions & support those who need our help. Healing the whole starts with healing minds. No matter what the misinformed say, you can’t simply CHOOSE to make mental illness go away. It is NOT cowardly to suffer or seek help. Lastly, my dad openly fought depression his whole life, both in general and his own. No matter what anyone says, it is a FIGHT. Fight on.”

Too right. Hopefully others can benefit from Zelda’s speaking out, and hopefully her family can find some kind of peace in this awful situation.

Amanda Bynes says her father molested her, then takes it back

amanda bynes

I honestly have no idea what to make of Amanda Bynes‘ Twitter rant which appeared on her official account yesterday morning. It was a long-winded schpiel in which she made some intense accusations – the main one being that she has been sexually molested and abused by her father for most of her life. It was… disturbing, to say the least:

Whoa – what the hell? These are SERIOUS accusations which need immediate investigation, right? Except a few hours later, Amanda popped back on to Twitter to take it all back.

Uh… WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE? Either she’s more mentally ill than we thought, or… well, she is more mentally ill than we though. The investigation will need to take place, clearly, because she did make those accusations (which her mother, via their lawyer, has vehemently denied) – but anyone who then says something about being microchipped is in need of serious help.

Katy Perry is your Super Bowl XLIX halftime show headliner

No wonder Katy Perry‘s been hanging around the football crowd lately – according to the New York Post, she’s a done deal to be the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show headliner!

Perry’s been rumored as a contender for the coveted Super Bowl slot, along with Coldplay and Rihanna (whose “Run This Town” was unceremoniously axed by CBS Sports as its Thursday Night Football tune when the season opened). The Super Bowl airs Feb. 1 on NBC.

Perry’s certainly been showing enthusiasm for the sport lately — at least at the college level. She appeared on ESPN’s “College GameDay” last weekend in a hot pink-and-black furry jersey, implored Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight, “Call me!” and partied with Ole Miss students.

“A deal is being hammered out for Katy to play the Super Bowl,” said an entertainment insider of the plan.

On ESPN, Perry blasted a reported NFL scheme to ask recording stars to pay the league in exchange for performing on its Super Bowl stage, which last year drew a record-setting 111.5 million viewers. “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl,” Perry sniffed. The NFL said its negotiations with artists are confidential.

Say what you will about Katy Perry, but having seen her live, she does put on a great show, and her shit is so grandiose and over-the-top, it would totally fit in with the occasion.

But hold up, the NFL expects artists to pay THEM to perform? Uh, what world do we live in? Obviously that’s not what’s happening here, though, if she’s agreeing to it.

Amanda Bynes twerks on her bodyguard, strips in public

Another day, another “please get Amanda Bynes out of New York City for the good of us all” story. We already know she’s been spending her spare time shoplifting, but now there’s video of her in the Upper East Side boutique Pookie & Sebastian (you’re so weird with naming things, rich people) and it’s… bizarre, to say the least. In the vid, she strips down to her bra in the middle of the shop AND twerks on her bodyguard.

From the NY Daily News:

Well, that was… interesting. What the hell is wrong with her “friends” and the people who care about her? I know she’s an adult and there’s only so much they can do, but really? Why does it seem like no one’s doing anything at all?!

Nicholas Hoult speaks out on Jennifer Lawrence nude photo leak

It’s pretty obvious that the nude photos hacked from Jennifer Lawrence‘s phone were originally sent to ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. They were together, in a long-distance relationship, for about four years, which is what Jennifer alluded to in her recent interview with Vanity Fair. So what does he think of the whole thing?

Here’s what he said on Good Day New York:

Hoult, who appeared on Good Day New York on Oct. 9 alongside movie director Jake Paltrow, was asked if he would weigh in on the scandal.

While he didn’t confirm nor deny he was the recipient of the photos, Hoult did have something to say.

“It’s shocking that things like that happen in the world. It’s a shame,” said Hoult.

Yes, it is “a shame”. Frankly, he doesn’t seem that bothered – but then, it is his ex-girlfriend, so I don’t think there’s any love lost there (or so one would assume).

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling named their baby…

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, last month, but until now we didn’t know many details, besides the fact that Ryan was apparently a doting father and Eva was just… there. Well, now we seemingly know the name of the baby, since TMZ paid someone to get a hold of the birth certificate.

Gosling and Mendes named their daughter Esmeralda Amada … according to the baby’s birth certificate, obtained by TMZ.

Amada was the name of Eva’s character in “We Own the Night” — and Esmeralda, well … maybe she’s a big fan of the ’96 Disney flick “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

Esmeralda! I mean, it’s a bit Disney, like they say, but it’s unique and I quite like it. What would the nickname for Esmeralda be, though? It’s a bit of a mouthful to say all the time. Esme? No, that’s too close to Twilight territory. I dunno, but I do like it.

However, I also think it’s tacky as shit that TMZ went to the lengths of getting a hold of the birth certificate for the sake of being the first to tell the world their kid’s name. Are birth certificates part of public record? I dunno, but I could have lived without that information.
