As most of America may know the Good Morning America co-host, Robin Roberts, came out in December via Facebook. She posted a picture on Facebook of her, her ten year girlfriend, Amber Laign, and other family members at her nieces wedding.
According to Huffington Post, Roberts has been getting plenty of negative feedback. People questioned why she chose to keep her ten year relationship under wraps.
She responded with, “News flash: Some people like their anonymity. This is what’s right for me.”
In the interview she went on to say, “Love is love, and I’m grateful to have that. Sometimes there’s a stigma attached to how people view you if you’re living a certain way. But I don’t care- you gotta find what happiness is and what it means for you, and you can’t get caught up in what someone is saying about you on Twitter. You don’t go through a year like I did to not be happy and not make your own choices.”
I commend her for standing up for herself, and not letting these negative comments affect her nor her relationship. I believe even though Roberts works on TV that doesn’t mean that all of her private life should be exposed. It’s her life and she should be able to dictate what she tells the world and what she wants to keep inside her home. Roberts has been very open to the public about being sick, and being gay and I think it benefited a lot of people. I think she is an amazing women and a great role model. Even though there’s always going to be someone to give negative feedback, I think it makes everyone who looks up to her feel great that nothing can bring her happiness down.
The famous hip hop artist, Chris Brown had been spending his days in a residential treatment center, until mid March when he was arrested on the account of him violating his probation. His probation was the result of his assault conviction in 2009 with his ex girlfriend Rihanna. The singer is currently in the Inmate Reception Center at the county jail in Los Angeles. Brown is being held
E news reports that the doctors who examined Chris after checking himself into rehab claims that he suffers from bipolar disorder and post traumatic stress disorder.
Reports say, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self medicating and untreated PTSD.”
I’m not surprised that the star has been arrested. It’s no secret that Chris Brown has been spiraling out of control for quite awhile now. I feel really bad for him and everyone that is affected by his sickness. I lost all respect for the singer back in 2009 when the Rihanna assault went down, but he has so many fans and I hope that he gets the help he needs so he can get back to the Chris Brown all his fans used to love.
According to e news, Kim tweeted, “a dream come true”. Kim and Kanye kept this a secret from everyone, even Kim’s family was surprised. Kim and Kanye recieved mixed emotions from their family, friends and fans. Their family and friends were so shocked and excited for them, but some celebrities felt differently. Not everyone felt that Kim and Kanye deserved to be on the cover of the magazine.
Celebrities such as Sarah Michelle Gellar and Naomi Campbell threw major shade towards Kim, Kanye and the magazine. The stars James Franco and Seth Rogen released a spoof of the cover which went viral. The muppets also did their own parody of the cover.
The editor, Anna Wintour defended it by stating, “the decision was for a good reason”. She went on to explain, “being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it look and influences the way we see it.”
“There’s barely a strand of the modern media that Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master”. -Anna Wintour
There’s no denying that the queen bee has been looking even better in her recent performances. Back in December, Beyonce joined her husband, Jay Z, on a 22 day vegan diet challenge.
You would think that this challenge would be crazy difficult,but no for this couple. In Jay Z’s blog he wrote about why they decided on 22 days. Jay Z states “psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way.”
It’s all about being healthy and feeling good for these two. Beyonce took to Instragram to share a few meals and snacks from her challenge with her 10 million followers. The CEO of 22 days Nutrition, Marco Borges trained Beyonce during her challenge.
According to e news, Marco explains that Beyonce’s transition from this challenge was easy. Her eating habits are still very healthy, and plans on doing another 22 day challenge.
Reading other blog posts about her challenge, I came across a couple bloggers who believe Beyonce and Jay Z only did this for power. I would defintely have to disagree. I strongly believe they did the challenge for personal reasons, but because these two are in the public eye so much, I think this influenced their fans to eat better and to get healthy.
According to e online the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality tv star, Khloe Kardashian Odom stepped out for lunch Monday in New York City with sister Kourtney wearing a floor length faux fur.
The words “F–K yo Fur” were spray painted on the back of her faux fur in bright red. The Kardashian sisters never fail to make a public statement. It was said that Khloe’s makeup artist, Joyce Bonelli, who is also anti fur designed the spray painted piece. The star posted the photo above on her instagram page with the caption, “#FXCKyoFur #FXCKyoATTITUDE I’m fur reaaalllll in New York! #FauxBasicB–ches”.
Knowing Khloe’s past history with PETA, I knew she would only be wearing faux fur, but not everyone believed this. I can see where her fans or even haters took her photo and caption offensively, but she did faux in her caption.
Khloe took to twitter to back her self up stating, “How do people not know FAUX means FAKE?!? Come on people! No I’m NOT with PETA! I stand for kindness. Treat others the way you want to be treated. This includes the ones w/ a voice and the ones wo”.
I commend Khloe for stepping out with such a statement. I’m also anti fur and anti testing on animals, and I hope this has sparked some people to join the movement.
Sometime last week, reports said DMX and George Zimmerman were going head to head in a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather as referee. Once celebs heard about Zimmerman’s idea, many volunteered to go against him. According to enews, the fight was scheduled for March 15.
Rev. Al Sharpton, who is not in favor of this brawl, claims that he is concerned about what this fight might spark. In an interview he states that, “We must be very careful not to glorify or in any way sidestep the implications of making someone whose only claim to fame was killing an unarmed young man named Trayvon Martin into a cultural celebrity or hero.”
In the efforts to cancel the boxing event, a petition has begun on change.org saying that, “This is blatant show of disrespect and nothing positive or righteous would come from this stunt.”
The owner of celebrity boxing, Damon Feldman, announced the fight was canceled via twitter as he tweets, “More to life than money” and “Peoples feelings meant more to me.”
The Trayvon Martin case is definitely a touchy subject for most, and it’s sickening to me to know that George Zimmerman is referred to as a “celebrity”. I personally was planning on tuning in to watch the fight, just to see Zimmerman get beat up, but I do agree with Rev. Al Sharpton, and the statement from change.org.
Nothing good would come from this.
Miley Cyrus’ new image is nothing new to the public, but has she gone too far? According to Huffington Post, the pop star recently posed nude for W magazine.
In her interview with Ronan Farrow, Miley speaks about how she does’t give a s–t about critics. In the interview she doesn’t bring up her posing nude, but her fans didn’t hestiate at all. Her die heart fans love the “new Miley”, but most are turned off by it.
Recently on Instagram, I saw a post of Miley, and it was saying that on Disney Channel Hannah Montana was a charcter that she played, that’s not her life.
I think people get caught up in what they saw on TV, and believe she should still be sweet and innocent. I don’t think Miley should have took nudes pictures for W magazine, because she does have young fans looking up to her, but I do think we forget that she is 21, and she can do whatever she wants.
This morning, like any other morning, I scrolled down my timeline only to see Justin Bieber in an orange jumpsuit. According to www.tmz.com, the Biebs was arrested this morning for a DUI, racing and resisting arrest.
Last night, photos were taken of Justin in Miami at the SET Nightclub. It’s been said he left the nightclub to race lambo’s with Khalil, a rapper from Def Jam Records. The nineteen year old was taken into custody after blowing a .04. In the state Florida under age drinking is prohibited, which makes him automatically eligible for a license suspension.
The police report online states that Bieber was very disrespectful towards the officers. Justin was arrested at four o’clock AM, and was released at 11:36 AM the same morning. Reports say after being released he climbed onto his SUV to wave to his fans.
Is anyone else not surprised?
We’ve all seen it coming. The Biebs has been all over the Internet recently. As I clicked out of my Instagram this morning, all I could think about was his young fans. So many young people look up to him, and yet he’s still spinning out of control.
How do you say Justin needs to change his ways because he is setting a bad example for his fans, without stopping him from living his life?
Everyone is entitled to their fun, but when youre in the limelight 24/7 what is too much?
