And he messed with the wrong woman!
The Los Angeles Lakers are looking into an accusation that two players-Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson- verbally harassed a mother and daughter in Los Angeles on Sunday night. You know Nick young as being Iggy Azalea‘s fiance, and while he seemed like a loving supportive dude, I hear this and I’m like, GROSS.
Alexis Jones says a Jeep full of young men pulled up alongside her vehicle while she was with her mom, and began to make “vulgar, sexual gestures” and comments to them. Turns out, Jones isn’t the woman you wanna mess with: she’s the founder of ProtectHer, a nonprofit focused on sexual assault and domestic violence within college and professional sports. Bad luck for Nick and Jordan.
Jones had the wherewithal to record the incident on her phone, and said that her 68-year-old mother was brought to tears by the whole ordeal. Then, she posted an image to instagram on Sunday, where you can clearly see Nick and Jordan:
The caption read: “I pray these pics go viral because THIS is the problem with little boys. Five minutes ago, at the intersection of Melrose and La Bre here in LA, a jeep of four boys pulled up at a red light and started yelling and making the most disgustingly vulgar gestures at my mom and me. I rarely “rant” about things but this is the f%+#ing problem and the reason I’ve now dedicated my life to educating young men about respect, not just for women but for everyone. I’m angry. I’m insulted. I’m hurt. They were laughing hysterically until they realized I was filming them and immediately they panicked like the cowards they are. Thank you to all the real men out there who would never treat a mother and daughter that way… Speaking of, I’d love for this to make it back to their mothers!!! Help me find who these guys are!!! Let’s see the power of social media and hold them accountable. I’d LOVE to have a candid conversation with them about sexual harassment not simply to shame them, but to understand their mentality so we can better educate young men to be respectful in the future.”
Well said, Alexis! The NBA is looking into the matter, and while Nick Young posted a flimsy rebuttal (that he since deleted) I think this is an amazing wake up call to treat everyone with respect and dignity.
What do YOU think about this situation?

Helen Mirren is my feminist dream queen!
Following up on previous comments about sexism in the film industry by Emma Thompson, Helen made a controversial remark, saying that she thinks it’s “sexist” for men to put their arms around their girlfriends, as it suggests ownership over the female.
VERY interesting. She said:
“It annoys me when I see men with an arm slung around their girlfriend’s shoulders. It’s like ownership. Of course, when you’re young, you want the guy to take your hand and look after you.”
The 70-year-old added:
“When I see girls being leaned on, I want to say, ‘Tell him to get his damned arm off your shoulder’.”
Helen, your words impress me. But do I entirely agree? Hard to say. It’s AWFULLY warm in the arms of my hot, hot boyfriend.
What do YOU think of her statement?

Oh, Miley. The lady (used loosely) doth protest too much!
It feels like Miley Cyrus is always talking about dating- and has been in a couple high profile relationships including being engaged to Liam Hemsworth and her past thing with Patrick Schwarzenegger.
But she wants you to know that she’s TOTALLY cool with being alone, y’all!
“It has a lot to do with being a feminist, but I’m finally OK with being alone. I think that’s something we have to talk about more: that you can be alone.”
I want to hear more about this feminism thing, but way to throw your mother under the bus, Miley. She goes on to say:
“There are times in my life where I’ve had boyfriends or girlfriends. And there are times where I just love being with myself and don’t want to give part of myself away to someone else. I think that’s a new freedom for women, especially. I don’t know that my mother would have been able to be 22 and secure in being alone.”
The actress recently hinted at her bisexuality and loves to be outspoken on Le social media, but we’ll see how long this “single and strong” phase lasts!

Kevin Federline‘s brother Christopher is making some pretty serious claims…including that he slept with Britney Spears during her marriage to his brother, and fathered her now-7-year-old son Sean Preston!
This isn’t kid stuff, people!
According to the National Enquirer, Christopher Federline filed for a temporary restraining order against Britney on December 18 in U.S. District Court in Tampa, Florida, claiming The X-Factor judge has stolen from, blackmailed and harassed him. Check out some of this crazy in some clips via Radar.com:
In the papers, Christopher says Britney recently “went to Kevin’s house to pick up Sean Preston and Jayden James, and [his] wallet was on Kevin’s coffee table when Britney opened it up and stole [his] Capital One credit card.”
Christopher claimed in court docs that when he followed up on the alleged theft — which accounted to more than $4,500 in charges — “Britney … laughed at me [and] told me my brother Kevin ruined her life. Britney made fun of me and told me I have a small penis.
“She also blackmailed me and told me if I tell the police that she stole my credit card, that she will tell the world I’m the true father of Sean Preston, not Kevin.
“I do confess I slept with Britney, and I am the true father, but the public does not need to know,” he admitted.
A source told the Enquirer that when Christopher contacted Britney about the credit card, she “just laughed at him,” and “threatened to tell Kevin she and Chris had sex while she was married to Kevin … and tell everyone that.”
Yikes. I’m not saying I trust the Federline family, but geez, these claims seem pretty crazy. Why would Christopher Federline wait so long to file claims? And, do you think Britney Spears did take part in any of this? I guess I’m asking how much YOU believe of this mess, and how much seems like bogus information…
