When deciding where to live, there's no shortage of considerations, particularly when it comes to the musical tastes of your neighbors. Before movin...
Codi, my friend that had attended the show with me, had know Mike for his party songs. As we were on our way home, he asked me what other "deep" songs Mike had that I could play for him. That is why we must not stop talking about it.
"Once I decided I would be happy living in my truck, I was free." The man who said this to me never has to work again. He built a company from noth...
Justin Bieber doesn't need his father to be his lap dance pal or pot-smoking buddy. He needs Jeremy Bieber to be a good dad now.
Sometimes the showiness is intentional and is a necessary part of the art itself. But sometimes it completely detracts from the real, raw talent. And isn't it the talent that makes music what it is? Maybe it's never truly existed, but I wish we could find a way back to that simplicity.
I'm wondering if talking about things you don't know anything about is a biological, instinctive human trait, like anger or hunger or sympathy for George Clooney because he just can't seem to find the right woman.
Justin Bieber does not exist in a vacuum; he was not created in a test tube and suddenly unleashed upon us. We made Justin Bieber.
So, when it's all said and done, "The @Pack" is actually the best group of role models thus far. For all the people who want to bash them, Hollywood actually needs more young class acts like these.
Social media has spawned a new breed of ugly citizen who makes outrageous noise because it gets attention -- and attention is the oxygen of the Internet.
I want Sharon Osbourne to be my best friend. This won't happen, of course, but a girl can dream. I don't know her personally, but I've had two interactions with 'The Talk' host. Once, circa 2002, when we both attended a White House Correspondents' Dinner after-party in Washington, D.C. where she was a guest, and I was on duty -- mingling with other high-profile celebrities, Red Carpet style, to get quick quotes for Us Weekly.
If he was actually their boyfriend and they were personally affected by his antics, would these girls stand up for themselves? What is it about Justin Bieber that has hypnotized 49 million girls?
It seems to me that this tendency to excuse libertine excesses by talented people inverts our moral hierarchy, since it basically says that those whom we acclaim as best are excused for acting the worst.
So how are some of Hollywood's "best" able to cope and yet other fall prey to vices which can or have destroyed their reputation, their wealth and most importantly, their health?
Those annoying Buzzfeed, Quizilla and Quizfarm et al quizzes have been clogging my Facebook news feed for months at a rate that now surpasses the petition requests, memes and revolting photos of the disgusting gourmet slop people had for dinner.
This week the White House will respond to the petition to deport Justin Bieber with its 255,000 accumulated signatures. Perhaps the Bieber derivative does something more subversive than its call to action: It dilutes the credibility of this form of activism.
While saddened by the death of a major talent such as Philip Seymour Hoffman, a loss that's heartfelt and spread widely across the world, we are once again reminded of how we really are fixated with the lives -- and deaths! -- of celebrities.
