This Week in Pop Culture ~ 1/10

PicMonkey CollageHey there!

This week in the lives of the celebrity folk has been of medium importance.

Nothing major-major…but not totally boring.


Let’s start with The Biebs.

Homeboy got caught smoking the ganja.

While I certainly do not approve, it’s really not THAT shocking, is it?

Here are some pics leaked to TMZ

0104-justin-bieber-smoking-2-tmz-3annnd here…

0104-justin-bieber-smoking-1-tmz-3I mean, it does appear that he is drinking beer as well…so at risk of sounding like the totally uncool mom that I am, let’s face the facts…He is breaking rules all over the place here.

Annnd this is on the heels of his “for-real” break-up with Selena Gomez.

Although I am wondering if the crime of underage drinking and marijuana smoking is really the biggest offense here…I mean, One F Jef called and he said he wants his hair style back.


Moving on to another celebrity behaving badly…

Josh Brolin.

130105-brolin-vsml-3p.380;380;7;70;0Guy got arrested for public intoxication on New Year’s Day.

Brolin isn’t a stranger to the mug shot, having been arrested 3 times in the last decade.

He was taken in and held for a a few hours and then released.  Nothing sadder than a grown man spending the night in the drunk tank.

Get it together, man!


Meanwhile there was an announcement made last week by Kim and Kanye.  We all know they are pregnant…but the funny news is they are saying that their baby won’t be allowed to be on camera.  At all.


Let’s all take a moment to collect ourselves.

1357751688_kim-kardashian-lgCertainly they have their right to privacy, especially for their baby, but who believes this?  Really?


In another bit of totally expected news Taylor Swift and harry Styles broke up.

1357666235_taylor-swift-harry-styles-articleCan’t wait to hear the song about it.


Now in a total WTF moment…

1357656174_ryan-gosling-mom-articleNow we all know how much I love me some Gosling.

And I love him even more for bring his Mama to the premier of his latest movie Gangster Squad.

BUT…here’s the weird part…he told E!News, “My mother’s wearing all my girlfriend’s clothes.”

“I’m wearing Eva Mendes,” Donna echoed. “She let me raid her closet.”

Now.  While some of you might think this is very sweet…and really, good on her for being able to fit in Eva Mendes’s clothes… but I just feel a little creepy about this whole situation.

How about splurging on a new dress for your mom?  I mean… Let Eva take her shopping?  Something, anything?

This morning the Oscar nominations were announced!

It’s not a super exciting year, in my opinion, but I guess there is some controversy over the fact that Ben Affleck wasn’t nominated for Best Director for Argo…I haven’t seen it, thoughts?
Also, there is no news surrounding this picture.  It’s just a little gift from me to you…
This weekend in the movies we have…
Gangster Squad
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. ~


And in Nationwide release this weekend, Zero Dark Thirty


The story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man.

For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden.



Oh and also Girls starts it’s second season on Sunday over on HBO.  Do you watch?  I can’t seem to turn away!




Have a great weekend!

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for that picture of Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer. Are there two prettier guys in the world? I think not. These two should’ve been facing off in the Whatta Man final. So. Beautiful.

    Maybe it is a little weird that Ryan Gosling’s mom is wearing his girlfriend’s clothes, but I can’t get past the brown suit he’s wearing in that pic. Is it me, or is that suit REALLY ugly?? He’s such a good looking guy but that suit does him no favors. And the shoes don’t help either…just saying.

    I wish the Kardashians would just GO AWAY. I’m just so tired of them. *sigh* And I don’t believe for one minute that their kid won’t be on camera. WHATEVER.

    Oh, and the Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer picture is so wonderful. ;)

    Ooooh I’m so glad you mentioned that Girls starts this weekend – I didn’t know! I watch HBO Go on my iPad using my Dad’s account (shhhhhhh don’t tell) so I’m not up on the HBO news. Exciting!
