Hello Hope you are having a fab day so far!!! And just so you know ….
DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THIS????
Justin Bieber might be keen in kick starting his career in Hollywood! But his supporters, who have been waiting to watch him act soon, will be annoyed to know that he will not be essaying the role of billionaire Christian Grey in the movie based on “50 Shades of Grey”.
Rumors that Justin was offered the role of Christian took social networking sites by storm, courtesy his statement in an interview with Jonathan Ross. The Canadian singer had claimed that he was offered a role in film adaptation. Unfortunately, many couldn’t pay attention to what he mentioned immediately after he made that comment. For those who are still unaware, the singer refuted the claim and said, “just kidding.”
All I can say is THANK GOD!!!!! Not a good joke at all. Love JB but even thinking about him playing Mr Grey IS NASTY !!!!! #justnotright

It is true I am one of the BIGGEST Madonna fans on the face of the earth……but I was not very happy with her show in Toronto. Yes true I had moments where I was like YES!!!! That is the great and powerful Madonna. There were also moments when I looked at her on stage saying you don’t always have to push the envelope. YOU ARE MADONNA!! And what was with the guns and blood onstage? If that was the first Madonna show you have ever seen you might have been impressed. For me I felt it was a money GRAB!!! The crowd wanted to hear here old school stuff…….you could tell that she did not care what her fans wanted. It was all about Madonna!! Don’t get me wrong I still love at her…….just not impressed with the show. The best part want the LIMO ride with Tara and Lisa and a few other friends.

If the photos are any indication, Emily Maynard could have a hard time picking a potential husband. ABC just released photos of the 25 men vying for her love and affection on the next season of “The Bachelorette” … and they’re a good-looking bunch.
The show has been criticized for not having ethnically diverse casts in the past though — so is this season any exception?
Of the 25 guys, only one is black. There are also four contestants from other countries — including a race car driver from the Netherlands, a mushroom farmer from Colombia and a grain merchant from Brazil.
The show was recently sued by two black men who claimed both “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” blocked contestants of color from starring roles.
At the time, Warner Horizon Television released a statement reading:
“We have had various participants of color throughout the series’ history, and the producers have been consistently – and publicly – vocal about seeking diverse candidates for both programs. As always, we continue to seek out participants of color for both ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette.’”
The new season kicks off May 14.

Nadya Suleman is days away from being homeless the house she owns that has been in and out of foreclosure for more than a year will be sold at an auction Thursday.
The dilemma getting first and last month’s rent together, so Octo has gone naked. She posed for the European magazine, “Closer.” Octo got $10,000 for the shoot, which is what she needs to rent a new place.
Octo is being very up front now about some misgivings about having 14 kids, saying, “I’m doing that (posing nude) because I need to feed my kids. I need to pay the bills. And I’m still very cognizant of the repercussions of my choices.”
MADONNA SAYS DEADMAU5 IS DEADWRONG
Madonna is claiming she was NOT promoting drug use at a concert in Florida despite allegations she used her stage time to glamorize the drug ecstasy.
Deadmau5 one of the most famous DJs in the world had attacked Madonna for asking the crowd at the Ultra Music Festival if anyone has “seen Molly”- Molly is a slang term for the active ingredient in ecstasy.
Now, Madge is lashing back with a pair of mouse ears.
The Material Girl posted a photo of herself in Mickey Mouse gear with the caption, “From one mouse to another I dont support drug use and I never have. I was referring to the song called “Have You Seen Molly” written by my friend Cedric Gervais who I almost worked with on my album.”
Deadmau5 saw the tweet and replied … saying, “Fair enough, I was just voicing my concerns as I usually do. Respect for clearing it up personally regardless, just be a little more aware of what you should represent at EDM events, and I’ll watch my mouth.”
Madge replied … “Communication is always best. You should have called me first, we could have cleared it up ‘privately.’ See you on the road.”
Two people are threatening legal action against the pop star claiming Bieber coaxed millions of people into harassing them over the phone.
In case you’re not one of Bieber’s nearly 19 MILLION followers the singer randomly Tweeted a phone number earlier this month with the caption, “Call me right now.” But the number was missing the final digit leading hordes of teen girls to guess what it might be. The tweet was later deleted, but the damage was done.
As a result, two people in Texas an older woman named Dilcie and a man named Kent claim their phones have been ringing off the hook non-stop and now, they’ve lawyered up to force Bieber to pay for his actions.
word is her clients’ patience “wears thin” after receiving over 1,000 phone calls at all hours of the day and they want compensation for all the problems Justin caused with his “reckless” behavior.
Suggestions from the legal team include: concert tickets for Ms. Fleming’s grandchildren, a Bieber apology, an endorsement for Kent’s upcoming online project and lastly money for any out of pocket expenses.

WOMAN SUES APPLE AFTER WALKING INTO GLASS DOOR
Apple wants to be cool and modern with its nifty glass front doors, says the indignant lawyer for an 83-year-old woman who was foiled by those very doors, “but they have to realize that the elderly generation are their customers, too.” Evelyn Paswall broke her nose after failing to see the door at a Long Island Apple Store and walking right into it. Now she’s suing for $1 million. Apple has to “appreciate the danger that this high-tech modern architecture poses to some people,” her lawyer says. Paswall also wants Apple to put warning marks on the glass doors so that similar situations can be avoided in the future. There were white warning strips on the glass Friday, but they may not have been there in December when the incident occurred: “There were no markings on the glass or they were inadequate,” Paswall’s lawyer says. “My client is an octogenarian. She sees well, but she did not see any glass.”
HAPPY TEENAGERS WILL EARN MORE AS ADULTS
Money may not buy you happiness, but having a happy childhood can make you lots of money. A study has found that children with a sunny disposition go on to earn more as adults, even if their parents were not educated or high earners. And within the same family, it is the happiest siblings who tend to earn the most. It will come as no surprise to self-made billionaire Sir Richard Branson, who has said in the past he was “extremely lucky” to have had such a happy childhood with “wonderful, understanding” parents. The study examined the happiness levels of 90,000 children and young adults in the U.S., and compared the data to their levels of income as adults. Even when other factors were taken into account, the economists carrying out the study found that happiness levels when young clearly determined higher earnings in later life.

When JT and friends showed up at the Atlanta restaurant Cypress Street Pint and Plate last Thursday, he was carded.

But since Justin did have I.D., he received his drink — a Crown and Sprite — right away. He wasn’t insulted either he and his group were one of the last to leave the place.

FALLING ASLEEP IN CLASS COULD HELP YOU LEARN?
It turns out that falling asleep in class may not be such a bad idea after all, as a new study has shown that going to sleep shortly after learning new material is the best way to remember it. According to lead author Jessica Payne, nodding off after learning something new is like ‘telling’ the sleeping brain what to retain. Participants were randomly assigned to study declarative, semantically related or unrelated word pairs at 9am or 9pm, and returned for testing 30 minutes, 12 hours or 24 hours later. At the 12-hour retest, memory overall was superior following a night of sleep compared to a day of wakefulness. At the 24-hour retest, with all subjects having received both a full night of sleep and a full day of wakefulness, subjects’ memories were superior when sleep occurred shortly after learning, rather than following a full day of wakefulness.

MADONNA DEFENDS NEW VIDEO AFTER YOUTUBE RESTRICTION
Madonna has brushed off the controversy surrounding the raunchy video for her latest single “Girl Gone Wild” after YouTube bosses slapped it with a viewing age restriction, insisting: “How could you go wild and not grind?” The singer’s new video includes nudity and a man rubbing his crotch, and bosses at the video sharing site restricted the clip, only making it available for those aged 18 or above. A representative for YouTube told the New York Post, “We review all videos flagged by our users against our community guidelines. In some cases we age restrict flagged material that, while not in violation of those guidelines, contains images that may be unsuitable for younger users.” Madonna’s management have reportedly been asked to re-cut the video so YouTube can screen the video for all of its users, and the singer’s publicist, Liz Rosenberg, insists it’s nothing they haven’t dealt with before. She says, “Some things never change. This is a throwback to when MTV refused to show Justify My Love (in 1990).” Now Madonna herself has addressed the controversy in a new interview with talk show host Jimmy Fallon. In the chat, which aired live on Facebook on Saturday night, she says, “I’m supposed to be a girl gone wild in the video! How could you go wild and not grind? This is the question that people should be asking.”

FACEBOOK LETS YOU DEMOTE FRIENDS
Facebook has unveiled a new tool which lets you demote ‘friends’ to just being ‘acquaintances’. The tool actually suggests friends who might be good candidates based on people who you haven’t messaged or interacted with for a while. Once a friend has been ‘demoted’, you see fewer of their posts in your news feed – but they’ll never know of their new, lower status. The ‘acquaintances’ list has been around since last year – but the new tool makes it easier to demote friends, by suggesting them to you.
