Daniel Radcliffe Opens Up About His Struggle With Alcoholism And Why He Was Very Paranoid

Life in the public eye seems soooo fabulous, but when you hear stories like this, you realize it comes with a heavy price.

Daniel Radcliffe has never been shy about talking about his struggles with alcoholism. Things really got out of hand when he was 18, and filming the sixth Harry Potter" movie, "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince".

 

He stopped drinking in August of 2010, which was just before the seventh movie came out.

 

Daniel admits that he used alcohol to deal with some of the PARANOIA that came with fame. He said, "There's an awareness I really struggled with in my late teens, when I was going out to places for the first time where you'd feel . . . WATCHED when you went into a bar.

 

 

"The quickest way of forgetting that you were being watched was to get very drunk. Then . . . you become aware that, 'Oh people are watching more now because now I'm getting very drunk, so I should probably drink more to ignore that more.'"

 

 

He said SOME of that feeling of 'being watched' was in his head . . . but he also admitted that he felt a lot of actual pressure, because people expected him to be happy and friendly all the time, just because he was rich and famous.

 

Burberry Showcases New Fashion Design and Many Are Horrified At Its Imagery 

Whoa. This can’t be real. PLEASE tell me this is photo-shopped. Okay, so unfortunately this noose-style fashion design IS real. Burberry debuted it at London Fashion Week. I’m all for creativity, unique perspectives and designs, but come on!

Did not one person on the design team question this idea or express the potential complications with showcasing a design like this? This could be interpreted as racist symbolism, or it could also be mistaken for glorifying suicide. This is not glamorous. This is not fashion.

Burberry team, you should be ashamed of yourselves — or in the least, you should get a better team. We have impressionable youth. We are living in a racially sensitive time. And let’s not forget our terrible history of lynching.

Blame it on your marine theme. Fine. But you can’t argue it is still insensitive and irresponsible.

Ariana Grande runs music here’s why!

There’s no where you can go and you don’t hear an Ariana Grande song and this is evident by her latest accomplishment. She has become the first artist to hold the numbers 1, 2 and 3 spots on the Billboard Charts simultaneously since the Beatles in 1964! 

"7 Rings" No. 1 again: Grande's "7 Rings" spends a fourth week atop the Hot 100, encompassing its entire run on the chart. "Rings" leads the Streaming Songs chart for a fourth frame, with 63.5 million U.S. streams, up 10 percent, in the week ending Feb. 14, according to Nielsen Music. On Radio Songs, "Rings" rises 10-9, up 23 percent to 61.7 million audience impressions in the week ending Feb. 17, good for the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for a third week.

"Break Up" bows at No. 2: New Thank U, Next single "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" blasts onto the Hot 100 at No. 2 (marking Grande's 13th top 10). It launches at No. 2 on both Streaming Songs (59.2 million) and Digital Song Sales (36,000 sold), while drawing 13.4 million airplay impressions.

"Next" up, at No. 3: Meanwhile, the Thank U, Next title track and lead single rebounds 7-3 on the Hot 100, after spending seven weeks at No. 1, beginning with its Nov. 17 debut at the summit.

T.I is a family man! If you haven’t noticed that by now you should take a look at his reality show “Family Hustle” on TV. He and his family are in the middle of filming a new season of the show and now production has come to a hault. The Rapper’s sister was involved in a bad accident and rushed to ICU. TIP made the decision to hold up on production. 

Kardashians Trademarking Kids’ Names, So Get Ready For The Toys and Fashions Designs

We always kid about the Kardashians capitalizing financially on their children from birth, but maybe the jokes aren't that far off... 

Kim, Khloe and Kylie all filed paperwork to trademark their kids' names.

 

For Kim, that's Saint, North, and Chicago West . . . Khloe has True Thompson . . . and Kylie is mom to Stormi Webster.

 

The girls are filing so they can put the kids' names on various things, including toys, clothing lines, and skin care products.

 

For some reason, Kourtney’s kids, Mason, Penelope, and Reign Disick, weren't included in this chaos. But Kourt's been pumping them out a lot longer than her sisters, so maybe she's already done it.

Now I’m here thinking of what items they could come out with... a fake lip injection toy? Baby booty pads? Okay, maybe not... 

Rapper Lil Xan having a baby

5 Months after splitting with Noah Cyrus, rapper Lil Xan has announced that he is having a baby. The rapper posted the news on his Instagram page that he and girlfriend Annie, who he’s been dating since he entered rehab late last year, are expecting a little one. 

Pink Admits She Once Slashed Hubby’s Tires And Had To Get Stitches! 

Girrrrrrl. WE GET IT! Well, I get the whole “We’ve all had those bad relationships” part, but not the slashing tires part. I’m too much of a scaredy cat to do that.

Pink and hubby Carey Hart used to have a pretty volatile relationship. On Friday's "Ellen", Pink admitted that she once gave herself 13 stitches SLASHING HIS TIRES.

 

"I got clean through the first one . . . [but] those tires [were] thick . . . And the second one, I lost a little steam and I hit the metal part and my hand just went straight down the knife."  (Here's video. The tire story starts at 1:39.)

 

 

She later clarified on Twitter that this happened in 2003 and, "I have not harmed a car in 15 years."

Watch the video! It’s super fun:

 

Please Tell Me Jussie Smollett DID NOT Orchestrate The Chicago Attack!

When this story broke I freaked out. I recall questioning the society we live in and wondering whether or not anyone has any love for one another, which is why I am so horrified at the thought that Jussie could have potentially orchestrated the attack. 

WHY?

To make Trump fans look bad? To try to show the world how hateful people can be? To be a voice for the black community? For the gay community?

Regardless of how this story ends up, this will not change how I react to other victims moving forward. But maaaaaaaan, this will make me think twice. The Chicago police could have been investigating other crimes, but they were too busy with this one... wow. 

__

Last week, police raided the home of two men as potential persons of interest in the alleged attack.

 

One of them was apparently a personal trainer who had worked with Smollett, and the two of them may have also worked on "Empire".

 

"Sources" say Smollett paid the brothers $3,500 to attack him, right down to putting the rope around his neck, throwing some kind of chemical on him, and yelling racial and homophobic slurs at him.  (Bleach was found at their place.)

 

Jussie's attorney is denying he had anything to do with the attack . . ."As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with.

 

"He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying."

Kanye’s Valentine’s Day Gift to Kim Was Kenny G... Legit.  

Yes, Kanye West is crazy, but you know what else he is? A GENIUS. And a legit romantic. Because for Valentine's Day yesterday, he gave Kim the gift of freaking Kenny G.

Not a Kenny G CD.  Not tickets to a Kenny G show. Not a Facetime with Kenny G. He literally GAVE HER Kenny G... in their living room.  

 

Kim walked into her empty living room to find the floor covered with single roses, each in their own vase, and the real, live Kenny G pumping out those sweet, soft jazz melodies of his.

 

Will Smith Was Offered Role in Matrix, but Turned It Down!

Will Smith turned down playing Neo in "The Matrix" . . . but he says it wasn't totally his fault, because the pitch for the movie was CRAZY, and it didn't make ANY sense.

He says they tried to explain to him that thing where he'd jump, then stop in the middle of the jump, and they'd have cameras all around him so the audience could get a 360-degree view of him as he was paused in the air.

 

Will adds, "So I made 'Wild Wild West'." And we all know how THAT turned out.  

Jussie Smollett Opens Up For First Time About Racist and Homophobic Attack 

This situation is still so sad. Why is there so much hate in this world? "Empire" star Jussie Smollett  sat down with Robin Roberts for an interview on "Good Morning America".

 

This is his first interview since he reported being the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in Chicago late last month.

 

Kim Kardashian Doesn’t Smile

Kim Kardashian says the secret to her smooth skin is NOT SMILING. She particularly hates smiling for the paparazzi, because of the way they fat-shamed her during her pregnancies.

Cartoons Making Our Kids Speaking in a British Accent?

This is hysterical! Soooo my daughter Ava, who’s almost three, is speaking with a British Accent. I couldn’t figure out why some words just sounded different. Where did she even get them from? Then it dawned on me after reading an article... PEPPA PIG!

A lot of popular kids cartoons today come from England, including "Thomas and Friends" and "Peppa Pig". And these characters speak with British Accents. So kids are picking up some words from the shows! 

I researched this though for those who are concerned. Psychologists weighed in and they say that your kid will eventually drop it. Until then, though, enjoy them talking about to-mah-toes and zeh-brahs. So great!

Think Drake’s Cutoff Was Really As Accident?

I am not sure how I feel about this. Do I believe them? Because it seemed really coincidental that Drake’s "Grammy" acceptance speech got cut off right after he told the crowd that they don't NEED Grammys to be winners. But the official word is that it WAS a coincidence.

 

 A representative for the show says there was a, "natural pause" in Drake's speech, which led producers to think he was finished. So they went to commercial.

 

He adds that they offered to let Drake go back out and finish his thoughts, but he told them he was happy with what he said and didn't have anything to add. 

Nicki Minaj Went HAM on BET After They Dissed Her

Nicki Minaj went ham on BET after they seriously dissed her in a post-Grammy Tweet. 

They were actually congratulating Cardi B for being the first solo female rapper to win Best Rap Album. But they added, "Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront."

 

When Nicki saw that, she Tweeted that she and Young Money were pulling out of the "BET Awards", and the BET Experience festival in L.A. this summer.

 

If that's true, then the awards and the festival also lose Young Money boss Lil Wayne.

 

BET apologized up and down to Nicki, and said the Tweet was UNAUTHORIZED. They added that they're, "committed to doing everything we can to address the situation." 

Xxxtentacion left out of the Grammys in Memoriam 

Rapper XXXtentacion who was shot dead in June 2108, was rejected from the Grammy’s In Memoriam segment Sunday night. According to a source, representatives for the late rapper requested a number of times that the Recording Academy recognize the artist, whose record “Sad!” was one of the most streamed songs of 2018. We are now finding out the Grammys’ reason for excluding X from their segment paying respects to fallen members of the music family. The rapper’s history of domestic violence cause the show to not include him alongside such acts as AviciI and Mac Miller. 

 

Ariana Grande Doesn’t Show Up To Grammys, Or Does She...

The Grammys went down and I have so many comments and questions. 

Okay, so Childish Gambino and Kacey Musgraves each won four awards, Lady Gaga won three. Cardi B made history becoming first solo woman to win Best Rap Album Grammy. 

Drake was cut off during his acceptance speech after he told the crowd they don't need Grammys to be winners. 

And Ariana Grande didn’t show up! We knew she wasn’t going going to, but there was a sliver of hope for me at least. Then it happened... during the show she DID show up -- on Twitter. When Cardi B won for Best Rap Album for Invasion Of Privacy, beating out the late raper Mac Miller, Ariana’s ex bf, she Tweeted, then deleted several Tweets. She called Miller’s snub “bull**it” and “trash.” She apologized later and explained that she has no hate for Cardi, she just felt that Miller should’ve received it. 

Anyway, overall it was a great show! So happy I was able to take part in it all. 

Demi Lovato Quits Twitter After Being Attacked

Love how we all lose our minds over things like this. I know I do. When I see a celebrity quit social media I seriously spend way too much time digging to find the reason. 

Well, my friends, Demi Lovato quit Twitter and I know why... it was after she got backlash for making fun of 21 SAVAGE, who was arrested by ICE agents over the weekend.

 

She Tweeted, "So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl." And people like Wale responded by saying things like, "Why is somebody's freedom funny? I don't get the joke."

After this exchange, everyone went in to Demi and that’s when she decided to peace out. 

Imagine Knowing Beforehand when Your Spouse is Getting Upset... How Many Arguments Could Be Avoided! 

This is kindaaa amazing! Imagine never arguing again because you’re well aware of when your partner is getting upset. I’d just leave the house! ha! 

Researchers at Texas A&M are working on a new A.I. program that monitors your voice, and can tell you when your spouse is in a BAD MOOD and ready to fight.

 

So if you knew they were in a bad mood, you could address the issue early . . . or just start walking on eggshells to avoid an argument.

 

It works by listening to the pitch and tone of your voice, and how your vocal patterns change throughout the day.

 

 

So far, they've tested it on 34 different couples, and it can detect signs of conflict with 79% accuracy . . . which is probably better than what YOU can do.

 

 

It's not clear how soon they might be able to jam it into your Google Home or Alexa, or how much it'll cost. So it could still be a while before you can actually try it out.

 

 

And obviously there are privacy concerns too. You probably couldn't do it on the sly. Your spouse would have to opt in first. 

 

INSANE.
