Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their second child!

Well, that didn’t take long. Less than 18 months after giving birth to Prince George, it seems that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their second child. Hurrah!

Here’s what royal officials said in a statement:

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

Here’s hoping this second pregnancy is a little easier for Kate – she had a really hard time and was pretty ill for much of the first time around. Also, I hope it’s a girl – then they’ll have the perfect little family (and they can also avoid another William/Harry situation). Yay!

CeeLo Green Losing Gigs Thanks To Rape Tweets

Cee+Lo+Green

CeeLo Green is in a world of trouble after his stupid, insensitive tweets about rape. Though he deleted his tweets, he can’t delete peoples’ memories, and it’s causing him gigs. TMZ is reporting that the Gretna festival is dropping his ass:

A Louisiana music festival says CeeLo Green no longer fits the concert’s “wholesome family environment” … so he’s been axed from headlining the event.

Organizers for the Gretna Heritage Festival released a statement saying Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will replace him in Sunday night’s lineup. There was no further explanation about why CeeLo was dropped.

I don’t think we need further explanation, I think it’s clear why he was dropped. And that’s not the only gig he’s lost. From Seattle Pi:

TBS announced Wednesday it had decided earlier this summer against renewing Green’s reality show, “The Good Life,” for a second season. The Navy also canceled a Green performance.

I guess they saw him drivin’ ’round town and shouted, “FUCK YOUUUUUUUU.”

I say, good riddance. He should be held accountable for his tweets, and I think it’s great people are taking action.

Bums me out. I used to be a fan. To the extent that anyone can really be a fan of CeeLo Green — I’ve never met a diehard CeeLo fan.

Ain’t that some shit?

Leaked Nudes To Become “Art”

jennifer-lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence was one of the celebs caught in the leaked nudes disaster and unfortunately for her and the others (like Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst) the photos aren’t going away anytime soon — in fact, they’re going to be featured as “art”. From E!:

Despite plenty of outrage from the public, Cory Allen Contemporary Art and artist XVALA are proceeding with their upcoming art show, “No Delete,” which will feature provocative images of the A-list stars.

“The artist sees these images as art,” Cory Allen explained to E! News. “[They are] a representation of someone or something that has a different meaning for everyone. Transforming those images to canvas presents them in a different light. It makes them real.”

Last week, CACA announced the leaked images will be life-size, unaltered and printed on canvases. The “art” will be held at a showroom in Saint Petersburg, Fla.

Despite several stars threatening legal action against anyone who posts the photos, Allen says what they’re doing doesn’t deserve legal ramifications.

“Our goal was not to do anything illegal. It was for XVALA to create art; to follow through with his vision for this project and for me to promote it,” Allen explained to E! News. “We have not been contacted by anyone.”

Okay, a few things. First, this reminds me of something Andy Warhol would do, although he’d definitely alter the images with his famous brightly colored silk screening technique. Secondly, I’m all for “art”, but I think this needs to die. What happened to these women was basically a sex crime. Their private photos were leaked, and it doesn’t matter how it happened — what matters is that it happened and it was a terrible invasion of privacy, and it should stop. Thirdly, this seems like a really lame excuse for art. But those are just my opinions.

What do you guys think? Would you see the exhibit? When it comes to art, is anything up for grabs?

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants To Be Jewish

Gwyneth+Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly wants to be one of the chosen people — no, I’m not referring to the Spice Girls — I’m referring to Jews. Apparently, Ms. Paltrow would like to convert to Juadiasm. As a Jew, can I just say, oy! Keep in mind it’s from the Daily Mail, so take it with a little bit of kosher salt. From The Daily Mail:

For years she has followed Kabbalah, which has its roots in the Jewish faith.

Now Gwyneth Paltrow is said to be ‘quietly converting’ to Judaism.

It was reported yesterday that the Hollywood actress, 41, has chosen to embrace the faith more closely following the break-up of her marriage to British singer Chris Martin this year.

The claim was made by the New York Post, which said Miss Paltrow was already raising her daughter Apple, ten, and son Moses, eight, in a Jewish setting after learning about her family history on the US version of the genealogy programme Who Do You Think You Are?.

Miss Paltrow discovered she came from a long line of influential East European rabbis.

Previously she has joked that she was a ‘Jewish princess’ after learning she had 17 generations of rabbis running through her family tree.

Oh she WOULD. She’s also said (via Fashion Times):

Oh my God, if you saw the amount of food that I do. I am the original Jewish mother. I make meals from these new recipes that look, smell and taste like the food I always cooked, but are also super healthy. That is an additional joy.

Girl, that doesn’t sound like ANY Jewish mother I know of. Jewish mothers don’t give a fuck about health content or count calories. They just eat and complain about the calories hours later. Duh.

Anyway, if this is what she wants, I wish her the best. L’chaim!
