On to the next one

taylor and harry Taylor Swift has a new boyfriend-again. Anyone surprised? I didn’t think so. I’m not writing this to bash her at all, I just have a few things I would like to say about this situation. It’s not the fact that Taylor has a different boyfriend every other week that bothers me (although I do find that a little annoying) it’s who she is actually dating.

Taylor, 22, started dating Conor Kennedy, 18, in May of this year. Recently the two broke it off and now, six months later, she is dating One Direction sensation Harry Styles, who is also 18. I don’t know if it’s just me, but if my relationship with an 18 year old boy barely lasted five months I wouldn’t be too eager to date another 18 year-old two months later. Come on girl, you honestly can’t tell me you don’t know why the first one didn’t work out.

There’s no denying Taylor’s dating choices are a little strange. The guys she dates are either way too old for her or way too young. When Taylor was only 20 she dated Jake Gyllenhaal, who was 29 at the time. In 2009, Taylor was still a teenager when she dated 31-year-old John Mayer who was 12 years older than her.  Taylor Lautner was three years younger than her and Glee star Cory Monteith is eight. Of course these aren’t all of her relationships, but you get the idea.

Taylor, don’t you see the pattern here? Either you’re way older than your boyfriend or way younger and none of your relationships last longer than a year. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with dating a lot of guys, you have to play the field before finding the right one. But when most of your songs are about how bad the relationship was or how heartbroken you were, don’t you think something might be wrong? Taylor said in an interview that not all of her songs are about break ups – but still. They are all about boys.

I guess if Taylor didn’t go through as many guys as she does, she wouldn’t have the career that she does either.


A Little Hope for Hope

Hope Solo It seems as if winning the Gold medal at the summer olympics this year in London has been the only positive thing in Hope Solo’s life recently. The goalie for the U.S. women’s soccer team had plans to marry her boyfriend, Seattle Seahawks player, Jeremy Stevens, on Tuesday, but their plans changed. Instead Stevens spent the day in jail after he was arrested on investigation of Assault 4th Degree Domestic Violence in Kirkland, Wash.

In statement made to hollywood.com, police were called at 3:45 a.m. November 12 to a disturbance call. There was an altercation between some people during a party happening inside the home, as well as use of a shot gun. When police arrived to the scene, they found a 31-year-old female, 32-year-old female and 34-year-old male all suffering physical injuring.

The 31-year-old female was identified as Solo.

Solo also made headlines this past summer when she accused her Dancing With the Stars partner, Makism Chmerkovskiy, of physically abusing her during their practices. In Solo’s autobiography, Solo: A Story Of Hope, she talks about he “manhandled” her by “pushing, whacking her stomach, and bending her arms roughly.” However, there has been controversy over whether or not that was true. Chmerkovskiy of course denied the situation and was truly upset when he found out she was saying this about him.

And then we can’t forget what happened to Solo before the Solo games. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency spoke out to Hope warning her she tested positive for a banned substance. This turned out to be a misconception. Solo replied saying she was “prescribed a certain medication for premenstrual purposes.” She worked with the USADA to make sure they knew she made an honest mistake and that the drug in no way “enhanced her performance” at the Olympics.

But back to Solo’s current situation with her violent boyfriend. Steven’s was released and no charges have been filed – yet. The investigation has been forwarded to Kirkland’s Family Violence Unit Detective for further investigation.

Hopefullythere is some hope for Hope and the negative spotlight will avoid her from now on!

Who are they voting for?

Election is right around the corner and It’s time to pick a side if you haven’t already. The two presidential candidates have been touring the country for months trying to claim everyone’s vote. So who will you be voting for this November? I think that’s a question that everyone wants to know but is too afraid to ask. However, my question has always been who are the celebs voting for? You know, those people who have more money than God and it would make no difference to them if the economy is thriving or failing.

So let’s take a look into politics on the Hollywood side, shall we?

Romney Supporters:

Cindy Crawford:

This gorgeous super-model used to be a fan of Obama back in the 2008 election, but this

time her bets are on Mitt Romney. Crawford appeared in one of Romney’s earlier campaign videos.

Gene Simmons:

Bassist of rock band Kiss decided to become a member of team Romney. Simmons expressed his beliefs in an interview with Big Hollywood:

“Who’s got a chance? Mitt Romney’s got a chance and he’s got the experience,” Simmons said in the Big Hollywood interview. “He’s run successful companies, knows how to make money. I believe Mitt Romney and President Obama are going to have a very good dialogue, and I want to hear that dialogue.”

Donald Trump:

Trump officially announced his support to Romney at the Trump ‘international Hotel on the Las Vegas strip shortly before the Nevada Caucus.

“Mitt is tough, he’s smart, he’s sharp, he’s not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country that we all love,” Trump said. “So, Gov. Romney, go out and get ’em. You can do it.”

Obama Supporters

George Clooney:

Clooney has been a supporter for Obama before he was even president. In an interview in 2006 with ABC’s Kate Snow, Clooney had nothing but good things to say about Obama.

“I must tell you, I’ve never seen anybody in my life in person that was as qualified this young to do what I think we need done,” Clooney said.

Clooney was also on the guest list for a $35,800 per person fundraising dinner in Las Angeles back in March.

Eva Longoria:

Eva has openly stated how she is a strong Obama supporter for a while now. She is one of two Hollywood stars to be among the 35 “ambassadors” for Obama’s re-election campaign. Longoria has spent a lot of money for Obama including a pricey fundraising dinner in September. Prior to that,  Longoria told Jimmy Kimmel that Obama has been “very receptive” to her in her efforts to promote Latino issues.

Stephen Spielberg:

If you have a three-time academey award winning director on your side you’re not doing too shabby. Spielberg has donated more than $150,000 to fundraise for Obama.

Ron Paul Supporters

Vince Vaughn:

Vince is a good friend of Ron Paul. He invited the politician to the premier of his film “Couples Retreat,” Paul’s campaign manager said Vaughn is a long-time supporter of Paul, having endorsed his 2009 book “End the Fed,” as well.

Kelly Clarkson:

The “American Idol” winner hasn’t officially endorsed Ron Paul, but she tweeted about her liking towards him: “I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last Republican nomination, and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican Party in 2012, he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”

This caused some uproar with Clarkson’s fans, due to Paul sending out racist letters. Kelly apologized for offending her fans, but in the end actually voted for Obama!

Michelle Branch:

Michelle Branch seconded Kelly Clarkson’s opinion when she tweeted this:

“@kelly_clarkson I wholeheartedly agree. #RonPaul”

Timberbiel’s after-wedding disaster

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel

It’s official–Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are finally newlyweds. The two got married last week at a romantic resort in beautiful southern Italy. Justin and Jessica celebrated this wonderful occasion in front of family and some celebrity friends which included Andy Samberg, Jimmy Fallon, Timbaland, and Biel’s 7th Heaven co-star Beverly Mitchell.

The wedding itself was full of smiles and happiness, but now the couple is dealing with some not-so-happy aftermath. One of their guests, Justin Huchel, an L.A. real-estate agent and Timberlake’s good friend, made a “gag” video of homeless people on the streets of L.A. congratulating Justin and Jessica on their wedding. Timberlake supposedly wasn’t supposed to know about the video and it was to be played at the reception. However, now Huchel’s lawyer is threatening leagal action against the gossip website Gawker for posting a 20 second clip of the video.

Huchel’s attorner, Michael J. Saltz, sent a cease-and-desist letter to the website threatening it with a lawsuit if they don’t remove the “copyrighted” clip. At first Gawker refused to take it down, but later removed it after a second letter was sent saying it was a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

This video was intended to be a joke and not meant for everyone to see. But once it blew up all over the internet, Justin’s and Jessica’s fans were not very thrilled. A lot of them felt the video was exploiting the homeless and done in poor taste.

One of Timberlake’s followers on twitter had this to say about the situation:

StephBreezy678: “It’s official I am no longer a @timberlake fan!! Unfollowing you right now! Mocking the homeless is wrong! #Pissed.It’s unfortunate that Justin and Jessica just shared such a happy occasion and now they have this situation attached with it. That’s not fair for them especially if Timberlake didn’t know it was happening. People are getting upset with Justin and Jessica for poking fun at the homeless, but that’s not fair if they had nothing to do with it. They can’t help what other people do.

Today, Justin posted a letter on his website apologizing for the video and to anyone who was offended by it. Justin said he had no idea about the video and it was not played at their wedding. This was a very smart move on Justin’s part because although he had nothing to do with the video he is still holding himself accountable. Now hopefully he can regain his fans’ trust back because clearly he did the right thing. Way to go Justin!

J-Biebs pulls PR stunt

"Beauty and A Beat"

Have you heard the latest news about Justin Bieber? If you haven’t, you might want to check where you live because it might be under a rock. In case that is in fact where you live, I’ll fill you in. Last week someone allegedly stole Justin’s laptop and camera while he was performing at a show in Washington. Justin tweeted about it saying:

“sucks when u take personal footage and people don’t respect your privacy.”

“yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen. really sucks. people should respect other’s property.”

“i had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect.”

The alleged thief, with the user name @gexwy, tweeted at Justin admitting to stealing his things and figuring out the password to the computer.

“good job with the password protected @justinbieber. weak.”

“@justinbieber i have them all. read your dms.”

The “thief” also tweeted videos of Justin at a pool party and of him pranking a friend.  Apparently he/she wanted something from Justin and they threatened to post more video footage on October 12th at noon if they didn’t get it. The threatening tweets go as followed:

” @justinbieber i got your stupid dms. i don’t think so. gonna show the world. TOMORROW!”

“TOMORROW. u’ve been warned. should of listened @justinbieber.”

“@justinbieber u have dealt with a lot of rumors for a very long time. as a kid. with the whole world watching. u ready for more?”

“yeah @justinbieber – #NOON”

Justin responded with:

“@gexwy no matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans won’t leave me. screw it. #toostrong.”

The whole next day, October 12, Justin kept tweeting and hash-tagging the word “noon”, along with stories from various news sites about the alleged theft. Then, right at noon just like the “thief” said, he/she posted another video of Justin at the pool party from earlier. The video, however, was actually his new music video with Nicki Minaj “Beauty and A Beat.”

Did Justin really make up a crime to promote his new video? Well, we’re not so sure. Sources are saying that a laptop and camera really did go missing after his show and a police report was filed. Other sources say a police report was never filed.

I guess the world will never know exactly what happened or why, but this is definitely a PR case to put in the books.

K-Stew admits her unhappiness

Kristen Stewart has never been that happy-go-lucky kind of girl. She’s notorious for flipping off the camera (ahem, picture to the right), and it’s like pulling teeth trying to get her to show anything close to a smile in pictures. This is how she’s always been and most have accepted it. Of course, there are going to be haters but Kristen is comfortable in her own skin and that’s wonderful.

Despite how weird some people may think she is, there is no denying Kristen’s on and off camera romance with Robert Pattinson. Kristen m

ust be doing something right if she was able to snatch a heart throb like R-Patts. Notice the past tense, was. This past summer Kristen pulled a less than classy move that I think is safe to say shocked us all. She cheated on Robert with Snow White and The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders — who by the way is married to gorgeous super model Liberty Ross and has two children ages five and seven.

Kristen publicly apologize

d for her affair, but that doesn’t make up for her boyfriend’s broken heart. This scandal of course separated the couple which brings us to present day. Sources have said Pattinson is a complete mess as is Kristen. Kristen recently just stated that she is in fact “a miserable c***.” She said this in an interview for the November issue of Marie Claire UK.

I don’t really understand why she has to use the C-word and why she would even want to refer to herself as that. It doesn’t play a good role on her image using such vulgar language first of all, and that she is admitting to the world she is unhappy. Maybe this is her way of making steps towards happiness by letting out her feelings? Either way, she should have a little more self respect. If Kristen can’t respect

herself how does she expect anyone else to? Then again, maybe she doesn’t. Maybe because she knows she already lost a lot of people’s respect when she cheated with a married man, that she has just given up on herself.

I think her public apology was very brave and definitely the right thing to do. She admitted her mistakes and everyone knew how badly she felt. The media continued to follow her around updating the public on the situation. We heard Kristen was having a very hard time dealing with it as I’m sure anyone going through this would. We knew she was unhappy.

And her statement only confirmed it. I don’t think it was necessary for Kristen to admit to the world how unhappy she actually is. She should b

e handling it internally and if people talk let them talk. Saying what she said only gave people more of a reason to think less of her, especially given her word choice.

It’s hard to say if the Twilight couple will rekindle their old flame . Word on the street is they are working on getting back together but I’ll believe it when I see it. If they can work past this then good for them, but you know what they say- once a cheater always a cheater.

The biggest wipe-out for Shaun White

Shaun Whaite Olympic snowboarder and famous skateboarder, Shaun White, made a little boo-boo last week. While celebrating a special occasion with his friends and family at the Loews Vanderbilt hotel in Nashville, White went a little over-board with the cocktails. Police reported to the hotel around 2 a.m. last Sunday morning when a man who looked like White allegedly pulled the fire alarm causing the guests of the hotel to evacuate. White was also seen destroying one of the hotel’s telephones.

Before the police could arrive, White tried to flee the scene by jumping in the back of a cab. Unfortunately for White, a guest stopped him before he could do so. White then kicked the man in the face and took off running. The guest chased after him and then the two collided when White turned around suddenly. White fell backwards and hit his head on a fence. White was taken to Baptist Hospital where he was treated for his injuries. He was released on Monday morning before being arrested by police.

According to police, White refused to sign misdemeanor citations, ultimately putting himself in jail. White is charged with public intoxication and vandalism. He is scheduled to appear in court October 10.

White is a two-time olympic gold medalist and has no criminal background, until now. He has been the face of many high-end companies in the past, including Oakley Inc., Target, Red Bull, Hewlett Packard and Burton Snowboards, among others. White has managed to keep a good reputation and stay out of the drama spot light throughout his career. Yes, he went a little crazy this time but he apologized right away by posting a statement on his Facebook page:

“I want to apologize for the unwise choices I made over the weekend and for any inconvenience it caused my family, friends, business partners, the hotel and their guests. I was celebrating a happy occasion with a ton of family and friends and got carried away. I’m truly sorry for my poor behavior.”

White apologizing was fabulous PR on his part because he owned up to his mistakes and realized what he did was wrong. White also posted the statement the day after his arrest. He did not waste any time which also scored him major brownie points. The biggest mistake celebrities make is not apologizing right away, or at all. It’s super important to address the situation as soon as possible for the sake of your reputation. It shows that you care and are willing to face the consequences.

It’s human nature to make mistakes and people understand that. White’s fans are still going to respect him, probably more than they already do, because of his public apology. I know it’s hard to admit you’ve done something wrong, so I can only imagine how tough it would be for someone who’s always in the public eye. I bet that took White a lot of courage which really shows us something about his character.

Thanks Shaun, we accept your apology!
