Who, What, When, Where?!: Miscellaneous Celebrity News

SunnyBeBe,

 

Even if what you are claiming could be the case for Miss Spears is true, why on earth should Mr. Spears( who,  by his own testimony, has 'a strained relationship' with his daughter, was accused of physical assault against one of his daughter's minor sons AND almost certainly was a contributing factor to her mental issues due to having raised her if not exploited her from an early age) by the one to hold the reins? What evidence have you found that have   Mr. Spears has done all or any of what you believe should be done on her behalf? If Miss Spears MUST somehow still merit conservatorship all these years after the breakdown (in spite of having resumed becoming a productive citizen), then the court should appoint someone who does NOT have all these conflicts and vested interests! 

The Court can only choose from so many people.   Who else is there?   Her mother?    Who has never indicated she wants the job.   How do we know that all the things Sunny Be said are happening?   Because although we do not know it, there is at least a yearly accounting of funds TO THE COURT.   Which the court reviews, if there are ANY questions, trust me they follow up.    The allegations of abuse were reviewed BY THE COURT in the conservatorship.   They continued it.   The court appoints an attorney to represent Ms. Spears' interest so that its not just her dad appearing in court saying everything is hunky dory.    There were probably mental health evaluations and medical reports.

The courts don't appoint a conservator then walk away never to do anything again.     There have been reviews of the conservatorship, all of which have resulted in continuing the conservatorship.   The court makes NOTHING off the conservatorship so they have no vested interest in continuing it.   (unlike probation where there are fines and fees).    That's how we need its still needed.

Amanda Bynes parents tried for conservator-ship for her a few times before they got one. The last article I read it said that she still had a conservator but her estate one had ended.  From her parents struggles it's not so easy to get one and then keep it. We don't know what is wrong with Britney but I don't doubt that it is serious.

There HAVE been cases where those who had been judged mentally ill and/or insane by the courts actually were NOT and that those who had been appointed their conservators were actually defrauding and otherwise using their positions to take advantage of those deemed 'mentally ill' (and it's not so easy for someone who has been legally tagged that to prove they no longer are- including those who may not have actually ever been).

       I don't claim to know what's going on behind the scenes in the Spears case but IF time tells     that palms were greased and those who were supposed to look out for Miss Spears's interests  did NOT do their duties and have everything reviewed on schedule and thoroughly heard all sides etc., it wouldn't come as a total surprise to me because these things HAVE happened to others in the past! 

   And I will NEVER  be convinced that Mr. Spears is the ideal person to look out for her for reasons I have mentioned (even if Miss Spears actually DOES need a conservator).

What rest of her life? He's more than twice her age; if they don't get divorced she'll probably be a rich widow by her mid-40s and able to date anyone else she wants.

Todd in the Shadows pointed out that one of the saddest movie scenes ever is in the 1991 Madonna documentary Truth or Dare. She and some friends are playing, well, Truth or Dare, Madonna picks truth, and she is asked who the love of her life has been. Madonna's answer?

"My whole life? Sean."

Yeah, it was 3 decades ago, I am fairly positive Madonna has moved on completely, but still, Todd's words exactly: That poor, poor woman.

I don't know about that. Because a few years ago, after her divorce from Guy Ritchie and Sean Penn's breakup with Robin Wright, there was a whole period of them all up in each other's lives, to the point that Madonna's son Rocco was taking humanitarian trips with Sean, without Madonna present. 

And I remember a little after Madonna had Lourdes, an interviewer brought up that quote about Sean and asked her if it was still true and she deflected by saying, "my daughter is the love of my life". Which I'm sure is true but not exactly a denial that she didn't still love Sean. 

Not to mention that she still covers for him regarding how physically volatile their marriage was.

Earlier in this thread, people brought up the rumours that they were reconciling at this time period, as she shocked everybody by performing True Blue, which she almost never does. If it is true, it looks like Madonna came to her senses.

Plus she has a daughter-in-law who's a year older than her. My favorite part of the article is the photo of her with Penn in which she looks like she’s dragging her grumpy father somewhere.

The dude is on his third marriage and legit has committed a shit ton of time and money to on the ground charity work including living for huge chunks of time in helping Haiti’s recovery over years. I think two things his wealth isn’t as crazy as people are imagining and two he is smart enough to lock it down. This wasn’t a surprise wedding to them, they have been dating for four years, it was a “surprise” to the public. 

She is 28 and knows that she lives with a dude who literally can’t get through a 10 minute interview without smoking and spends a good amount of time living in a tent, I am sure she is good with it.

I think she looks  a lot like her mom and her dad!

I wonder if her religion had anything to do with it. She’s a pretty devout Jehovah’s Witness. That combined with her mental health struggles may have burned some bridges.

So, is this a REAL investigation or just a bunch of BS?  Now, Tony, former DJ on Ellen agrees the workplace was toxic. I recall when he left and I thought it was strange.  He hasn't said he left the show due to issues, but, it seemed odd, even then.  He's working now, so, that's good. He has no reason to support those who are protesting the issues alleged against the show.  To me, he has a lot of credibility.  He was on the show for quite a few years.  He and Ellen seemed cordial on air.

And, Katy Perry supporting Ellen........omg.  I really don't want to diss a lady near her due date, but, she needs to back off.  I had to stop watching American Idol due to the horrible, inappropriate, distasteful behavior exhibited by Ms. Perry as a judge on the show.  I used to be a fan.  Her behavior was so bad.....multiple times that I was embarrassed for her.  Her endorsement means nothing, in my eyes.

I don’t know if the allegations are accurate and I’m trying to keep an open mind, but I would appreciate a fair investigation. 
 

Ref. Katy Perry.  This is what I observed of her on AI as a judge.  I used to be a fan. She  repeatedly acted overly attracted to some of the young male contestants, fawning over them, swooning, making suggestive comments, displaying blatant and overt favoritism for these particular young men as if she was a school girl and these were boys her own age.   I was shocked she never seemed to get called out for it. It was unfair to the young men, as well as the other contestants who were not, handsome, young men.  It put the young men she fawned over in a very uncomfortable situation. It went beyond normal behavior.  That was my take on it and it told me that she has zero judgment.

It's like when I told a co-worker in college that our boss inappropriately touched me and he was all "I've never seen him be inappropriate."  Well of course not, you're a dude.  He's not going to grab your ass.

Perfectly said. It’s the definition of privilege. I’ve even seen some like Ashton Kutcher double down about how their also talking about their support people. So clueless. 

It probably won’t happen but I love it if some of the celebrities who had super awkward interviews with Ellen came forward. Ellen has had a ridiculous number of moments where she put her guests in uncomfortable situations.

I hadn't seen any of his movies (well, maybe Fast Times) so I had no affection for him or his work when I heard about the Madonna abuse stories. He's been trash to me ever since regardless of whatever work he does in crisis zones. Also, I know people say he's a good actor but the movies I'm aware of seem very Oscar bait-y (in a bad way) and I'm guessing they haven't aged well.

You see, I think he said that because there is a transgendered teenager among the cast. That's the whole reason behind it, among other things.

That's rich since I distinctly remember all of this nonsense. https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/mario-lopez-says-it-s-dangerous-parents-support-transgender-kids-n1037276

I'm not saying it's right for anyone to act like this but this is pretty much the role that many female judges have played since Paula Abdul. Nicole Scherzinger always does this. Christina Aguilera was kind of like that too (though she had too much ego to really fawn over anyone else). Carrie Ann Inaba is like this all the time. I haven't watched reality singing competitions much in the last few years but they definitely cast for the role of "highly sexed female judge who fawns over the male contestants." Slight benefit of the doubt that this is all an act simply because it has been repeated over and over on so many shows after Paula set the template.

From the stories I've heard she's been rude (or at least doesn't go out of her way to be nice) to certain celebrities off screen. I think it just depends who she likes and feels like making the effort for. Sure, it's easier to treat underlings poorly. But she's not great to all her guests either. If it was just about the staff, I think it would be easier to sweep under the rug.

I think he looked his best in "U turn". His hair was longer and he still looked like Sean Penn but it was a good version. But I agree, there is no looking past what he did to Madonna. His five yearly rants about the Oscars not going to the best people are tiresome too. It's like- are you new here? We all know they're a political joke and have pretty much always been and you're not enlightening us. Also- you tied up your wife and hit her with a bat. Sit the hell down.

Yes and he was definitely not okay with it. 
 

Quote

“I was a tad bit uncomfortable,” Mr. Glaze said by phone this week, after the incident aired on the season premiere. His first kiss was a rite of passage he had been putting off with consideration. “I wanted to save it for my first relationship,” he said. “I wanted it to be special.”

“Would I have done it if she said, ‘Would you kiss me?’ No, I would have said no,” he said. “I know a lot of guys would be like, ‘Heck yeah!’ But for me, I was raised in a conservative family and I was uncomfortable immediately. I wanted my first kiss to be special.”

I remember when she tricked the contestant who had never kissed anyone before into kissing her.  She asked for a kiss on the cheek and then turned her head at the last minute to make it a kiss on the lips.  I thought that was offensive.  If a male judge had done that to a female contestant that they would have been called on it. She stole his first kiss and was so smug about it. The guy was nice about it but when she’s the one in power over whether or not he gets ahead in the competition it makes sense he would feel he had to be good natured about it.

Katy did get called on it.  I remember because I stopped watching American Idol a long time ago and I remember people pointing out how wrong it was. 

But there was also a lot of "yeah...whatever, it's just a kiss and it's KATY PERRY!" surrounding that "not cool."  And I don't think she ever apologized. 

But I think the controversy died down because even though the guy said he hadn't expected it and was a little uncomfortable, he didn't feel harassed or like a victim.

Sometimes, young people don't immediately recognize when a person has taken improper steps.  How old was this guy? I'd have to research to see the ages of the young men that I witnessed her act improperly with, but, they were quite young. Regardless, of who she is, her behavior was over the line, imo.  I'm shocked they kept her on the show. I would think that the other judges were embarrassed too.  I would suspect that it was said to all be in fun and for entertainment purposes.  Which doesn't help the matter at all.

I'm not saying she's been doing anything superstrenuous.  But, she's been keeping up on her social media pretty consistently.  If she were really at death's door, it seems like she wouldn't have bothered.
