How can TOP be voted as the top celebrity with the worst controversy of 2017, or Yoo Ah In be in this list when both of their controversies didn’t hurt others or could have?Kangin who had DUI’s, COULD have hurt or even killed other people. Yoochun’s case was horrible too and included other people too but how is Yoo Ah In’s case evenconsidered a controversy? The man has poor health because of his shoulder and while YES, TOP broke the law, and it was completely wrong, he has mental health problems and should get help, not being put up first on a list where people have done so much worse.

  • Baby: M..M-Ma..
  • Mother: aw are you trying to say Mama?
  • Baby: Marilyn Manson was born Brian Hugh Warner on January 5, 1969 in Canton, Ohio, to Barbara Jo (Wyer) and Hugh Angus Warner. He has German and English ancestry. During his childhood, one of his neighbors molested him several times until the young Brian broke down one day and told his mother what happened. As an only child, he would often get into mischievous activities such as adventure through his grandfather Jack Warner's sex toys, shoot his BB gun with his cousin Chad, and create sex magazines to sell to his classmates. His parents raised him as an Episcopalian, and he attended the religious private Heritage Christian School. It was there that he became fueled with hate towards Christanity. During his tenth grade year, he convinced his parents to let him attend a public school.After he graduated from high school, he and his parents moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida because his father got a better job there. He studied journalism and theater at the local community college called Broward, and being some place new and feeling lonely, he wrote poems and short stories. After being fired from his last job at a record store, he became entertainment journalist for a local magazine. He interviewed several famous musicians including Trent Reznor from the band "Nine Inch Nails". Along with his job and writing, he would also frequently go to rock clubs. He soon decided to create his own band. With musical influences from Ozzy Osbourne and KISS, he recruited other musicians with the same interests and started the band called "Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids". He got the name Marilyn Manson as a combination from the names of the movie star Marilyn Monroe and the psycho killer Charles Manson. The band's name would later officially change to just Mariyn Manson, and most of the original band members would leave and be replaced, too. Manson reunited with Trent Reznor and had his band tour with "Nine Inch Nails". Reznor would also produce Marilyn Manson's first three albums (Portriat of an American Family, AntiChrist Superstar, and Mechanical Animals) and an E.P. (Smells like Children). "Mechanical Animals" is Marilyn Manson's most successful album to date. With the success, Manson became a controversial celebrity, because the anti-Christian message in his songs, and Satanist 'Anton Szandor LaVey' deemed Manson a Reverend for the Church of Satan. Also with fame, Manson started to mingle with other celebrities, and began a romantic relationship with the actress Rose McGowan. They became engaged, but broke off the relationship in 2001.He then fell in love with the burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, and soon became engaged. They had a fairytale, non-denominational wedding in a castle in Ireland. Meanwhile, Manson came out with two more albums (Holy Wood, and the Golden Age of Grotesque), and a best of album (Lest We Forget: The Best Of...). He also dabbled into acting by being in such movies as Jawbreaker (1999), Party Monster (1998) and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004). He continues to make music and act in movies.

January 22nd 1973: Roe v. Wade

On this day in 1973, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade that women have the right to an abortion, thus legalising abortion in the United States. The case was brought to federal court by a Texas woman under the alias of Jane Roe, against Dallas County District Attorney Henry Wade, who represented the state. After a decision was made in the district court, the case was referred up through the court system, eventually reaching the nation’s highest court in 1970. The all-male Supreme Court, led by Warren Burger as Chief Justice, ruled 7-2 that a right to privacy under the 14th Amendment covers a woman’s right to an abortion. The majority opinion was written by Justice Harry Blackmun, with Justices Bryon White and William Rehnquist penning dissents. The Roe decision was issued the same day as a related case called Doe v. Bolton which overturned Georgia’s anti-abortion laws. Roe v. Wade was immediately controversial, sparking celebrations in the pro-choice camp and protests from anti-abortion activists. It is still a divisive issue today, with its supporters arguing the decision forms a vital part of a woman’s right over her own body, and those opposed to abortion calling for the decision’s repeal. The Court’s 1973 decision has since been challenged, and abortion rights have been gradually eroded in subsequent rulings, but the fundamental right to an abortion remains.

WHERE ARE CONFEDERATE MONUMENTS FALLING?

A white nationalist rally that turned violent in Charlottesville, Va. last Saturday brought renewed attention to dozens of Confederate monuments around the country. Many government officials have called to remove statues, markers and other monuments that celebrate controversial Civil War era figures from public grounds. This map from The New York Times (16 August 2017) shows those cities where Confederate monuments have been removed and where there are now proposals to remove them.

Pink and Gray trailer looks intense and dramatic! I know the spotlight is on Yuto Nakajima, since he’s from Johnny’s but take a look at his co-stars - Cannes Best Actor Yuya Yagira and recipient of many local acting awards - Masaki Suda.

The movie is about young people becoming movie stars and celebrities, with much controversy regarding one of the characters reportedly murdered or is it suicide? 

BTW, here is my short guide to celebrity controversies.

-) Was what they did illegal? Or like at least almost illegal as in the sense of “it’s currently being debated that it should be made illegal”? No? Have you considered not giving a shit then?

-) But you think it should be illegal? How about you get on making that a reality first?

-) So it really was illegal? => contact the police/local justice groups/the local representatives to urge on the matter. 

-) Wait, so you are just upset because they behaved in a way that would cause you to end a friendship with somebody because they “disappointed you” on a personal level? They are celebrities, you could not have thought of them as your “friends” in the first place. They are as much your “friends” as the cashier at Walmart. The sooner you stop pretending they are your friends, the better.

Are existing laws perfect? And there are still things being added to (or removed from) the code and that’s a good thing. Still, as a rule of thumb, the current legal code is still often a better representation of “things you should actually care about” than what tumblr morality decides.

Se7en apologizes for military scandal + officially discharged from the army!

On the morning of December 28, singer Se7en was finally released from the army, 10 days after his originally scheduled discharge date. Following his 21-month military service at Pocheon’s 8th Infantry Division located in Gyeonggi Province, the singer greeted his fans and the media at his discharge ceremony on this day.

Se7en’s return to civilian life has received much attention due to a controversy surrounding celebrity soldiers in which he was involved, three months after enlisting. The discharge ceremony was the very first time that the singer stood before reporters in a public setting following the scandal in June of 2013.

In front of the reporters and fans, Se7en started by saying, “Hello, this is sergeant Choi Dong Wook. Thank you for coming despite the cold weather.

The singer then expressed, “I want to thank all of the fans who believed in me and supported me until the end in the midst of such a difficult situation.” He also shared his thankful heart toward his family and friends.

He continued, “I’m sorry for causing disappointment during my military service and I am reflecting over my wrongdoings. I served in the 8th division for a year and a half. After facing a big obstacle, it wasn’t always easy. I am able to be discharged in a healthy condition thanks to the unit executive officers who believed in me until the end. I am thankful to everyone and I will work hard and live diligently day by day from now on. I apologize for having been discharged following a shameful incident. These are all things I will have to carry with me in the future,” bowing his head in apology.

No Regrets Chapter 14 Sneak Peek:

Café Du Monde had been filled to the brim when they’d arrived just after ten o’clock.  The line moved quickly though, and soon enough they were seated outside the famous café enjoying their iced au laits and beignets.  They caught a few amused glances as Fitz, true to form, had moved Olivia’s chair to his side of the small table so they could sit next to each other.  He’d used the excuse that the place was loud and they’d be able to hear each other better.  His arm was slung loosely across the back of her chair as they talked.

“I wouldn’t‘ve minded spending a few more hours locked in our room” Fitz was saying as he absentmindedly stroked her arm. 

“I know” Olivia said teasingly.  “But I want to talk and it’s best that we do it in a public place surrounded by lots and lots of people.” 

“Okay, shoot” Fitz encouraged her.  “What do you want to know?”

Olivia shifted, not sure how to approach the question.  “Well, we’ve talked at length about our families and work and all that, but I never pried about your marriage because it wasn’t any of my business.”  She looked at him shyly.  “I guess I just wonder what happened.  You were married for fifteen years?”

“Almost sixteen” Fitz said helpfully.  He’d known this conversation would come, and he welcomed it, but he also sensed that it would be one of many they would have on the subject and wanted to broach it carefully.

Olivia could see that he was gathering his thoughts, so she dusted a bit of the mountain of powdered sugar off one of the still-warm pockets of fried dough and took a bite.  “Mmmm” she hummed appreciatively, licking stray sugar from her lips.  “Oh, Abby would love these!”

Fitz looked at her beautiful, shining eyes and smiled.  “Abby, the infamous baker?  I’m sure she could make her own” Fitz said thoughtfully. 

“She could” Olivia agreed.  “But I don’t think she’s made any since culinary school.  I think I know what her souvenir will be” she said with a suggestive waggle of her brows.

“Culinary school?”  Fitz frowned.  Didn’t she go to business school with you?”

“Mmhmm.  And when I continued to graduate school, she started at Le Cordon Bleu.  Then she abandoned me for two years cooking in places I was dying to visit while I slaved away eating garbage.”

Fitz chuckled.  He loved how easy it was to talk to her.  Her sense of humor and her tolerance for his teasing endeared her to him even more.  “But she’s been making it up to you.  Those pastries you ate during one of our chats looked amazing, almost too good to eat.”

“Canelés!  My favorite.  I’ve never had any as good as hers” she said with a smile.  “One day you can visit me and help me eat an entire box instead of me finishing them all myself.” 

The mention of Fitz visiting her in New York made his heart drop to his stomach and his expression turned somber.  Olivia felt it too and fell quiet.  Fitz cleared his throat to answer her question about his marriage.

“Mellie and I had known each other for years and had the same mutual friends” he began.  “She was ambitious and driven and those things impressed me about her.  She was always encouraging me, telling me I could be whatever I wanted to be.  When things got hairy between my demanding course load in grad school and my drunkard of a father, she was right there to support me.  When I didn’t have anyone else, she was there.” 

Fitz licked his lips, looking at Olivia to gauge her reaction to his words.  Her expression didn’t seem cautious or hesitant.  She was rapt, taking in everything he had to say.  So he continued.

“Neither of us knew exactly when our friendship became something—more.  I mean, we had been intimate a few times.  We’d become close friends and neither of us was seeing other people so it just happened naturally.  Falling in love seemed inevitable, and we did.  We got married while we were still in school.  When it became clear that I didn’t want to become a surgeon, it’s like something between us shifted.  I still don’t quite know what happened—“

Fitz looked at Olivia ruefully.  “She wouldn’t speak of it again after that, but I knew I’d disappointed her.  Talk of kids, hopes and dreams for the future–the kinds of things people in love talk about—stopped.  We still cared for each other as individuals, but the spark was snuffed out early on and we were both too proud to acknowledge it.”

“But all that time” Olivia said pensively. 

“Pride” Fitz said sadly.  “I felt that I owed something to her for being the only semblance of family I could remember.  I couldn’t humiliate her with a divorce after that.  When people started asking about kids, we’d blame our careers, timing, anything to placate them for a while.  Eventually, they stopped asking.  Two years before we divorced, during one of our worst fights, she finally admitted that she’d never wanted any.”

“Oh” Olivia’s brows rose.  “That had to be shocking for you.  I know how much you want kids.  Three, right?”  She remembered very well how many children he wanted from one of their many late-night conversations, but she saw the pain in his eyes and suddenly wanted to lighten the mood.

He smiled.  “My lucky number.”

The air between them grew heavy as they both fleetingly imagined a future together but neither was ready to voice it aloud.  It just wasn’t the time.

“So, by the time you met me” Olivia prodded gently.

“By the time I met you, I knew my marriage was over.  I thought everything was over quite frankly; my marriage, my career and any hope that all those years had been worth something.  It isn’t a reflection on Mellie.  We both made mistakes.  We should have been more cognizant of what we wanted before we made vows to each other.”

“But what did she want?” Olivia asked, curious.  “What does she do?”

“She’s a defense lawyer.  She wants to make it to the big time.  She idolized Gloria Allred, mostly famous for high-profile stuff like celebrities and really controversial cases.  But there isn’t much in the way of sensationalism in Seattle and she hasn’t had her big break.  I think she must feel a lot like I felt when I was trying to get this project off the ground, but she can’t see the similarities.”

“Do you speak to her?  Now that it’s been some months since the—since you parted ways, I mean” Olivia said cautiously.

“We spoke right after, back in January, for something—maybe closure.  Things were still pretty tense between us, so I let her know I was meeting with someone about my project and that it would be the end of the line for me.  She wished me the best, I reciprocated and we haven’t spoken since.”

“Wow” Olivia said, not sure what to make of what she’d just heard.  “You don’t think we’re jumping into anything too soon?  Maybe you need some time to—“

“I don’t need time, Olivia.”  Fitz looked at her face earnestly.  He could see her gaze wavering, the uncertainty creeping back into her eyes and he wouldn’t stand for it.  “I’ve taken so much time from someone else and so much time was taken from me.  It can’t be returned or exchanged.  I won’t waste anymore of it feeling regret or chasing after meaningless things.  I’ve forgiven myself.  I’ve opened myself up for whatever there is ahead and for me it’s you.  This project meant everything to me until I met you.”

“Do you mean–?” Olivia blushed, not wanting to bring up their hot and hasty union in Chicago but needing to know everything.

“Our encounter almost a year ago was the first step in finding my courage.  So in that way, yes, meeting you got the ball rolling.  And then after I discovered it was you I’d be working with, I couldn’t believe my luck!  There are coincidences and then there is fate” he smiled as his ears reddened. 

“I didn’t know you believed in such things, Doctor Grant” Olivia teased in wonder. 

Fitz’s brow cocked at her use of formality and his gaze burned into hers.  “I don’t think I did” he admitted.  “But then we met again and after that night in your hotel, suddenly the thing that had been consuming my life for so much time seemed almost inconsequential compared to you.  I thought about you all the time.”  His voice deepened, “I think about you all the time.”

Olivia’s breath caught in her throat.  Her lips, her entire mouth, felt dry.  She took a sip of her iced au lait.

“Livvie.”

She felt her face heat so quickly she was sure he could see it burning, and her eyes lowered.  “It’s all so overwhelming, isn’t it?  Sometimes I can’t even breathe.”

He didn’t care that they were seated under a crowded tent or that a few people had already been pretending not to stare at them for their different hues.  In that moment, he only worried about her.  He took her face in his hand to drive it home.  “It gets to me sometimes too, but it just lets me know that I have the capacity to care about someone in a way I’ve never felt before.  The only time I want is right here, right now.  Whatever you give me, for however long.”

Olivia looked at him, unshed tears in her beautiful eyes, and swallowed.  “Just—shut up and kiss me, okay?”

And he did.  Fitz bent to press his lips to hers, gently but firmly.  It only lasted a few seconds, but the seconds were theirs.  It felt like a promise; a promise that there would be infinitely more seconds to share because the time had been reset now that they’d bared all to each other. 

Unnoticed by either of them, Priestess Felicie was about to enter a building across the street when her surprised countenance fell on the couple.  A knowing smile graced her handsome face and she nodded once, seeming to bless the pair before walking into the restaurant.

Getting a paternity test as an unmarried celebrity is as controversial as signing a prenup (in celebrity world). It's not an indication of anything else except covering legalities/celebrities asses and I wish people would realize this.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^

anonymous asked:

Why does our culture treat intelligence like it's something thats not "cool"? I just care about life and people and want to actually contribute something constructive to conversation, it's so painfully alienating!

Cultural dynamics are generally orchestrated to value faith in authority before the self-empowerment that critical thinking yields, as encouraging people to recognize intelligence as salvation would essentially be the beginning of all independence from those seeking to rule over them; the fruit is forbidden because knowledge is a threat to God’s security, metaphorically speaking.

Harness the pain of your isolation in conjunction with your comparatively greater awareness, as motivation to act as the catalyst for change in your environment. Campaign authenticity as an invitation for others to do so; remain persistent and celebrate the inevitable controversy you incur as a testament to your influence, rather than yielding to variations of hive-mind disapproval.

You are in a position of significant discomfort, but you are capable of choosing whether or not it’s the discomfort of transcending oppressive circumstances, or the discomfort of perpetual unfulfillment within them, the pain of growth or the pain of decay; embrace the tribulations of realizing your potential, or guarantee yourself a life of repression, escapism, and eventual self-destruction.
