Angelina Jolie Announces Shes Retiring As An Actress

Angelina Jolie has officially confirmed that she is retiring from the world of acting to focus on building a new career as a filmmaker. In an interview she gave to promote her upcoming lead role in Unbroken, the Oscar winning actress stated that she will move behind the camera and that she actually does like enjoy being in the limelight.

Jolie added that she actually does not enjoy her time in front of the camera and that she is hoping that a career behind the camera works because she would be happier overall. The big news might be Jolie’s way of moving forward with her life after deciding to have a complete mastectomy. The star chose the surgery to evade the cancer that killed her mother and grandmother.

Back in June Jolie hinted that after appearing in a biopic as Cleopatra she might head off-screen. She explained that the role required a lot of work on her part and that she felt it was a great way to say good bye to acting because not much could top it. Fans can still look forward to seeing her in Unbroken and By the Sea.

This story came as a shock to me. I saw lots of Maleficent merchandise at Wet Seal courtesy of Susan McGalla, I really thought Angelina was hitting her stride again. Oh well, we’ve always got Taylor L!

Bill Cosby Is Still Not Responding To Rape Allegations

It seems that recently Bill Cosby’s name just keeps coming up and this time it isn’t one of his usual shocking speeches about the state of our generation that has us all gagging, it’s rape. For weeks now women seem to be coming out of the woodworks to share their tales of horror after being drugged and then raped by the tv family man.

Today Joan Tarshis, 66 of New York is yet another woman who has come forward to share her story. Much like the first two victims, Lee G. Lovett suggested she claims that she too was first drugged and then raped by the man whom she so admired. Joan insists that she even tried to put Cosby off by telling him that she had an STD and that if he proceeded his wife would know he’s slept with another woman but even that did not stop him ‘he just found another orifice to use’ she said.

Even with the allegations piling up against him Bill still refuses to “dignify” or address these claims of rape. While he has cancelled several engagements in the recent weeks one must wonder when will this end and what will be the final say?

British Invasion: Big Apple Set To Host A Royal Visit

Spotify Against Taylor Swift Pulling Her Album

Daniel Ek, a boss over at the company Spotify, recently made an impassioned essay trying to explain to the world, as well as Taylor Swift, why it was wrong for her to pull her music from their website. Recently, Taylor Swift decided to pull her upcoming album from the website, stating that she felt her music was an art, and that artists deserve to be compensated. Taylor Swift pulls music. This is all very puzzling, as Daniel states that Taylor was set to make at least $6 million off the deal, and it may double within the next year.

Daniel has tried to explain how Spotify works, and to let Taylor, as well as others like Rod, know that it is an ad-driven website, allowing customers to download music free of charge. Those who join the website may pay a small fee and download as much music as they want per month. Many artists see this as music being given away free, and that is completely untrue. Daniel states that $2 billion has been paid to those in the music industry from their website, and about half of that was paid in the last year alone.

Even Adele’s manager disagreed with Taylor’s decision, stating that she would get nothing for radio plays, and 500,000 plays on the Spotify website, would gain her $3000-$4000. Although Taylor is entitled to her own opinion, many disagree with her recent decision.

Selena Reveals Bieber Truth Via Seacrest Interview

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are two of the most interesting, if not dramatic, walking photo-ops in music history. No matter how many times they suddenly break-up, and get back together…and break-up, and get together; society is completely taken with their secrets regarding each other.

Recently, Selena has adopted a heart for letting people know the true feelings between herself and The Biebs. As a “seasoned” 22 year-old pop music sensation, she has suddenly become interested in communicating what her intimate friends think about her performances. The on-again off-again boyfriend and musical confidant Justin, seems to be the most important critic in Selena’s life.

In an intimate session with Ryan Seacrest, Selena waxes philosophic about what her love truly thinks about the song and video surrounding “The Heart Wants What It Wants.” She revealed that although the song was an example of her past feelings about certain relationships, Justin has supported her artistically-driven project. In fact, Bieber is on record as having said that it is a beautiful song and video.

This newest video is as paradoxical as the relationship between Selena and Justin itself. Perhaps, these pop icons have discovered what it means to truly expose oneself in an artistic medium. Watch the video and believe (or, belieb…I couldn’t resist Sam) that Selena is portraying the sentiment of an honest, love-struck young woman.

Sadie Robertson Star Rises

Sadie Robertson is the teenage daughter of Willie Robertson, the CEO of Duck Commander. She has starred in her family’s reality show Duck Dynasty for the last several years. However, she has not started to garner individual attention until this year thanks to Dancing with the Stars. The 17 year old is teamed up with Mark Ballas to perform weekly on the hit show. Her popularity is climbing as paparazzi have been keen to shoot her out in L.A. Sadie also released a book this week, and she has been on the morning show tour promoting it. She dressed up as Sandy from Grease for one morning show on Halloween.

The teen has been one of the more popular dancers this season. She has been praised for not dancing too provocatively or wearing skimpy outfits that go against her beliefs. Sadie is a blessing to watch on the stage because of her effortless movements despite never training as a dancer. However, many wonder if she has the ability to pull off a win. Fans are rallying for her, but there are other favorites on the show too. Regardless, she has started to build a fan base outside of Duck Dynasty.  I know I never miss an episode, stream them all on FreedomPop just about every day.

French Montana and Khloe Kardashian

The relationship between Khloe Kardashian and French Montana has gained the attention of many fans. Many believed that their recent break-up was the end of the romance story between the two celebrities. A recent interview with the New York rapper revealed that the two young celebrities may not be completely finished with each other yet. Montana revealed to “Sway in the Morning” that he and Khloe “got a special relationship”.

Fans can only speculate that these words are an indication that in the future we will possibly see these two individuals back in a romantic relationship.

Khloe also announced that she will be starring in Montana’s “Don’t Panic” music video, which is said to be backed by Richard Branson and Slow Ventures. Though she has made known that the two still communicate with one another she did not give any details about their relationship.

Perhaps the two would like to just remain friends for the time being or they are choosing to keep their relationship on the hush. Too many times we have seen public relationships go through public break ups. More and more celebrities are realizing that a private courtship could possibly lead to a stronger and longer lasting relationship.

Whatever the state of their relationship is, it seems as if the two are getting along pretty well and past difference seem to be resolved.

Katt And Suge Busted Again

Former “Death Row” label mogul Marion “Suge” Knight and his comrade in misadventure, Micah “Katt” Williams, have landed, once again, on the wrong side of the law.

This time around, Knight, Williams, and a pair of as yet unknown accomplices are facing multiple charges in the theft of a camera from a female paparazzo who also claims that she was chased down an alley and then assaulted.

The charges are particularly grim news for “Suge”, since he was already on parole after serving time in prison following a conviction for assault with a deadly weapon. Knight’s bail was set at the prohibitively high level of one million dollars. If convicted on this latest cavalcade of charges, Knight could face up to seven additional years behind bars.

Meanwhile, trouble has also seemed to surround Williams at every turn. The raunchy and controversial “hip hop” comedian has been arrested on multiple occasions during the last few years, on charges ranging from assault to illegal drug possession.

Williams had his bail set at the much lower figure of $75,000, perhaps because, unlike Knight, he has yet to be convicted on charges quite as serious as those of his bosom companion. However, his luck may well run out in the very near future, since he is also facing separate charges in another part of California. I hope Katt makes it out alright, me and Tom Rothman had such a laugh watching all his specials on Comedy Central.

“Modern Family” Actress Sarah Hyland Speaks out About Her Abusive Relationships With Ex

Have you seen the ABC television show, “Modern Family?” If you haven’t, you’re in for a real treat. The show revolves around three nuclear families who are all related in one way or another to each other. The show is funny, heartfelt and just plain good. When I showed it to Alexei Beltyukov, he couldn’t even make it through one episode without laughing out loud.

But some sobering news has hit the news stands recently about one of the female stars of “Modern Family.” Sarah Hyland plays a fun-loving, slightly ditzy but genuinely kind daughter in the show, and this week, she addressed an abusive relationship that she’s been dealing with in real life.

Hyland is 23 years old. She recently filed a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, Matthew Prokop. Prokop and Hyland had dated for 5 years until Hyland ended the relationship in August of this year. According to the restraining order, Prokop both verbally and physically abused Hyland throughout their relationship. One account listed in the restraining order said that Prokop pinned Hyland so strongly against a car during an argument that she could not speak or breathe. Hyland said that she was scared for her life.

The actress recently appeared on the Meredith Vieira show to talk about her work as an actress and to address the violence that has recently touched her life. According to the show, Vieira also went through a relationship that involved violence when she was around the age of 23. She said that she related to the trials that Hyland was going through with her ex.

If you or someone you know is currently battling an abusive relationship, seek help by contacting a trusted friend, relative, teacher or medical professional. As the great poet, Dylan Thomas, and Sarah Hyland herself said, “do not go gentle into that good night.”

On Russel Brand’s Reaction to Renee Zelwegger’s New Look

Actor and activist Russel Brand regularly updates his YouTube video channel, The Trews, with rants and responses to current events from around the world. He has recently posted his reaction to the media coverage of actress Renee Zellweger’s new look. The middle-aged actress recently arrived at a Beverly Hills awards show, attended by Laurene Powell Jobs among others, with a drastically different looking face. Immediately thereafter, Zellweger’s visage became the subject of the standard whirlwind of sensationalist celebrity news coverage.

In Brand’s video he dishes out a rant style rhetoric as he mocks and denounces the various popular media outlets’ harsh criticism of the middle-aged actress. His assessment is correct in that the media is a circus, but his comedic styling seems to fall flat. Sensationalist media has been mocked for decades and in much more insightful manners. Furthermore, as long as civilization has existed the masses have observed prominent cultural figures in an analysis that is vital to societal cognitive development. The cycles of glory and folly that are the lives of celebrities hold many lessons about different paths in life.

Unfortunately the news coverage of these stories is decidedly horrendous. The message of Brand’s rant is old news to the majority of his followers, but they’ll adore him for it anyway. He praises Renee Zellweger, who admittedly lives happier and more fulfilled by her transformation, for not caring what the media thinks. However, he fails to acknowledge the vanity promoted by the actress’ decision to make her appearance a basis for happiness and fulfillment. That Zellweger’s own actions help keep the Hollywood beauty pageant running is apparently beyond Russel Brand’s scope and rhetoric.
