A terrorist, someone who has caused so much harm to our country, is not my idea of a perfect cover model. I am, of course, referring to the most recent cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
Whether they wanted the attention or not, whether they were doing an article on him or not, he should not have graced the coveted cover of an iconic magazine.
I understand there was a well-written article about the infamous Boston bomber within the magazine’s pages. However, you can put a teaser on the cover without his picture.
For one, it’s way too recent. The Boston bombing was a mere three months ago (April 15). People are still hurting, physically and emotionally.
For another, the picture does appear like he is a rockstar. If they were set on this, they could have used a photo of him in handcuffs, showing him getting what he deserved. Instead, it’s of him looking right at the potential buyer, grungy looking, like many other cover models of the magazine are.
**UPDATE: A reporter at Rolling Stone wrote a column of how they are a hard news outlet, whether people know or not, and that it’s ok if The New York Times did it, but not them. Here’s my rebuttal: those news outlets portrayed him as the news was happening. This has been three months later and I honestly think the public is sick of seeing his image. I think that’s another place where the anger over this lies.
In my opinion, it was in poor taste.
This was a story I felt I needed to address, as it’s prominent at the moment and I have a strong opinion about it.
The lovely Selena Gomez made an appearance on The Late Show host David Letterman’s show Mon. March 18, 2013. The young actress was promoting her upcoming movie, “Spring Breakers”, which she stars in with James Franco, Ashley Benson and fellow Disney alum Vanessa Hudgens.
But, their was a very small part of Letterman and Gomez’s convo that made Letterman himself laugh and give Gomez a fist bump. Gomez gave a little diss to the Biebs about their ended relationship.
Letterman said “Now the last time he (Bieber) was on, he and I got into a conversation and he said something, then I said something, and he said something, then I said something…and I made him cry.”
To which Gomez replied, “well then, that makes two of us.”
Some people said the burn was too harsh. But I disagree.
"The Late Show with David Letterman" is a comedy show and well, she brought comedy.
I don’t think she was trying to be blatantly rude, it was just that perfect come back that you can’t even plan. Besides, it’s been a few months since the Biebs and Gomez split, which makes it OK. If it was right after, then it would have been mean and uncalled for. But, they’ve had time to move on.
I mean, I’m a “Belieber” and I’m supporting her (because I’m not a crazy one).
Here’s the link to the full episode of “The Late Show” where Gomez is a guest star.
In this episode, bachelor Sean Lowe and his three leading ladies made a trip to Thailand.
Catherine, Lindsay and AshLee were the remaining three and this week they had their overnight dates.
My favorite date: Lindsay’s!!! For those who didn’t watch, Lindsay and Sean took a stroll through the market and streets of Thailand, experiencing the culture. It’s just as Lindsay said, if they were dating in real life, this is what a vacation would be like. However, the reason this was my favorite date is because while on the beach they got to feed MONKEYS! That is an awesome experience that I am completely jealous of.
On who went home: I knew AshLee would get sent home. She was way too intense and didn’t seem very fun. Sean wants a best friend, someone he can have fun with, and she didn’t bring that to the table. But Catherine and Lindsay both bring that. She would continuously repeat her feelings for Sean, what else did they even talk about? Also, she was way too confident. In this process, you never know how the bachelor or bachelorette feels, because they can’t really reveal it. She acted like it was her or the highway, when in reality she had no idea what Sean’s relationships were like with Catherine and Lindsay.
What’s next: Lindsay and Catherine are the last two standing! These two girls are both fun, silly and have a great connection with Sean. In the finale, Sean’s family gets to meet both girls and I wonder if they will like one over the other, as they are both very sweet and funny. I can honestly see him picking both girls. Normally I have a favorite by this point, but I like them both! Also what is that note they are showing in the commercials?! Can’t wait to find out! Tune in in two weeks for the finale of this crazy season of The Bachelor.
The Oscars are the grand finale of the awards season. Every star anxiously awaits to see who will come out on top. This year, some of the awards went to the expected, others-a complete surprise.
Awards-Anne Hathaway won for Best Supporting Actress, predictable, as it’s all anyone talked about.
Jennifer Lawrence won for Best Actress in a Leading Role, which was both an expectation and a surprise, as it was a close race between her and “Zero Dark Thirty” actress Jessica Chastain. I would have been happy either way, as I think they are both terrific.
Daniel Day-Lewis winning Best Actor in a Leading Role was also predictable, but well deserved. It is ironic though that they couldn’t find an American to play an American president.
My surprises were “Life of Pi” winning the most Oscars out of anyone, four, including Ang Lee for Best Director. To be honest, when the “Life of Pi” trailers were shown, I had no interest in seeing it and thought it seemed kind of dumb. Looks like I might have to check it out!
Also, “Les Miserables” only won two Oscars (besides Hathaway’s) for Sound Mixing and for Makeup and Hairstyling. Kind of surprising for all the hype surrounding the movie. This just proves the hype isn’t everything. But even though they won only two, they got plenty of face time at the Oscars when almost the whole cast performed live on stage.
Best dressed: SO HARD TO PICK
The stars certainly brought their A-game. There were sooo many best dressed nominees. I’m in love with Stacy Keibler’s dress, as well as Nicole Kidman’s. But my OVERALL best dressed is….

Her whole look flowed perfectly, effortlessly and she was formal and traditional enough for the prestigiousness of the Oscars.
