Justin Bieber was returning to the United States yesterday, when he was stopped by customs and brought in for questioning. According to TMZ, it’s all due to his legal problems.
Justin and his entourage were landing at LAX on a flight from Japan yesterday afternoon when Justin was pulled aside for a second search.
Sources close to Bieber tell us U.S. Customs agents are giving JB a secondary customs search … which includes getting grilled about all his open criminal cases — DUI arrest in MIami, egg throwing at his neighbor, etc…
We’re told it’s standard ops for anyone with a record like Bieber’s — and doesn’t mean he’s getting arrested for anything.
Remember, he also got the 3rd degree when he landed in NJ on Super Bowl weekend.
Justin later walked out of the terminal — after more than 3 hours — and was instantly surrounded by tons of photogs, and a few fans.
Justin jumped into a waiting SUV without saying a word.
Wouldn’t it have been amazing to have him deported? Oh, if only.
Apparently Beyonce is the most influential person on the planet! Good grief, really Time?
Time Magazine named the singer #1 out of 100, beating out competitors like Hillary Clinton, Pope Francis and more.
It’s a most momentous occasion for the singer. Her co-luminaries include Hillary Clinton, Kerry Washington, Phoebe Philo, and Donna Tartt — definitely good company. But the accompanying Sheryl Sandberg–penned blurb reveals that Beyoncé has ascended to the rank of fully formed pop-feminist icon.
With the Sandberg endorsement, she’s shed the empowered jilted-lover spokeswoman and diva status that earned her a spot on the 2013 Time 100 issue (as “Diva”). After her year as the hardest-working mom on the world-tour circuit, a Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie sample, a handful of DGAF innuendos about self-love and championing lady parts, an essay about gender equality, and her very own Lean In commercial, the transformation is complete. Beyoncé’s guide to feminism is forthcoming.
Sandberg writes of Bey, “… her answer to the question, What would you do if you weren’t afraid? appears to be ‘Watch me. I’m about to do it.’ Then she adds, ‘You can, too.’”
Inspiring stuff. I am truly inspired, even though I’ve been Beyoncé-watching for some time now, and I still can’t figure out the mechanics of her Power Woman hair whip.
Do you agree with Time’s pick?
Alicia Silverstone knows how to offend women all over the world, I’ll give her that. When I hear women make comments like these below, it makes me want to punch her in the face.
I’ll say this. I had my babies young. Had my firstborn when I was 23, and my second when I was 25. I felt like I knew it all – and at the time – I had no problem telling people what I thought about child-rearing. Fast-forward to now… I know nothing. I knew nothing. Things that worked for me then wouldn’t work for everyone. I think everyone needs to do what’s right for them – and what’s right for their children. Ever parent/child relationship is unique. So preaching what should be done – and shouldn’t be done is a dangerous thing.
Alicia Silverstone has released a book called “The Kind Mama,” and she has plenty of advice for every woman. You won’t believe the garbage she’s spitting out.
“While there has not been a conclusive study of the negative effects of such a rigorous one-size-fits-all, shoot-’em-up schedule, there is increasing anecdotal evidence from doctors who have gotten distressed phone calls from parents claiming their child was ‘never the same’ after receiving a vaccine. And I personally have friends whose babies were drastically affected in this way.”
Tampons destroy your body:
“Your chichi is the most absorbent part of your body. Unfortunately, feminine-care manufacturers aren’t required to tell you what’s in their products, which means that no one’s talking about the potential pesticide residues from non-organic cotton and the ‘fragrances’ containing hormone-upsetting, fertility-knocking phthalates that are snuggling up to your hoo-ha.”
Postpartum depression is only for mean moms:
“Though it’s less common among kind mamas, some women experience the blues after giving birth.”
Use her advice, cause she knows it all:
“[This book can] help prevent or even cure your PMS, insomnia, allergies, breakouts, weight struggles, thyroid condition, lupus, multiple sclerosis—while significantly lowering your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.”
Avoid meat and dairy while you’re pregnant:
“You wouldn’t want to bring your baby into a junk-filled house with a leaky roof and backed-up plumbing, right?”. Otherwise, pregnant women are “tracking toxic sludge through your baby house.”
I consider myself a “kind mama” and I DEFINITELY had postpartum depression with my first child. I find most of her comments offensive – but I know there are a whole lot of women who will agree with her.
I guess to each his own.
UPDATE: Here’s what a “kind mama” looks like:
