Celebrity Lesson #43: Don’t Get A Tattoo Proclaiming Your Love For Someone

Once again, a celeb has taught us an important lesson: don’t get a tattoo with your lover, girlfriend/boyfriend or spouse’s name. Breakups are painful enough. Don’t add tattoo removal on top of it.

An important message from Eva Longoria

Once again, a celeb has taught us an important lesson: don’t get a tattoo with your lover, girlfriend/boyfriend or spouse’s name. Breakups are painful enough. Don’t add tattoo removal on top of it.

I’m an admirer of Eva Longoria, and that fondness grew in her handling of her split from San Antonio Spur player Tony Parker. She handled the situation, an inevitable topic of celebrity interviews, with dignity.

Now, it looks like she’s taking another step towards putting the dissolved marriage behind her. Sources tell E! News that the actress is having the tattoos celebrating the relationship removed. They report that Longoria is undergoing treatments to fully remove permanent ink that include the word “Nine” (Parker’s jersey number) on her neck. She also has ink with her wedding date on her wrist and his initials in an ‘undisclosed location.’

And from most sources I’ve spoken to about tattoo removal – it doesn’t feel great.

Let’s learn a valuable lesson from this, shall we? If you want a tattoo, go crazy. But lovers, names, anything that something is forever might be worth a second thought. I’m all for optimism. But I’m also for pain minimization.

COMMENTARY: Even In Apologizing To Bill Clinton, Justin Bieber Comes Off As Arrogant Jerk

Instead of apologizing to the public about his crude behavior, Justin Bieber bragged on twitter that he spoke to Bill Clinton. The fact that so many young fans encourage his every move – where it’s right or wrong – doesn’t help.

Justin BieberInstead of apologizing to the public about his crude behavior, Justin Bieber bragged on twitter that he spoke to Bill Clinton. The fact that so many young fans encourage his every move – where it’s right or wrong – doesn’t help.

It started when video captured Bieber urinating into a mop bucket in a restaurant’s kitchen. Surrounded by a team of giddy ‘yes-men’ (or rather, boys), the self satisfied Bieber laughs it all off, then grabs spray cleaner and douses a framed photo of former President Bill Clinton with it, screaming “F—- you Bill Clinton!”

The internet erupted with criticism, but Bieber’s ‘Beliebers,’  as he called them, seem to think he can do no wrong, and as long as he is surrounded by the people that think his every move is beyond reproach, Bieber is apparently without remorse. He made sure to tweet video of fans screaming over him in the past 48 hours.

Bieber TweetThat said, he reportedly did later apologize to Clinton via phone. Bieber said so on twitter, tweeting: “@billclinton thanks for taking the time to talk Mr. President. Your words meant alot. #greatguy.”

Clinton didn’t tweet back.

Extra reports that Bieber said he was sorry for disrespecting him. The former President accepted his apology, and according to E!, responded with something like “If that is the worst thing you have ever done, all is well.”

Here’s my problem with all this. Bieber’s tweets never mention that he shouldn’t have done any of it in the first place. Instead, it simply brags that he talked to the #greatguy Bill Clinton. He also makes some time on twitter (he’s getting more traffic due to the controversy) to promote the launch of his fragrance, “The Key,” which launches July 15th. Sure, he apologized to the President, but how about the person who has to dump out and clean out that bucket?  …that mop bucket that will ultimately return to its original purpose – cleaning the floor or a place where everyday people – including some of his fans – will eat?

I do understand that 19-year-olds do stupid things sometimes. (I have a long list myself, although none of them include peeing in a mop bucket in a restaurant.)  I even concede that the restaurant may very well have known that he was going to pee in that bucket so that he wasn’t causing a commotion or being harassed in the restaurant. But his cockiness and apparent self reverence diminishes any level of tolerance I have.

I don’t just blame Bieber himself. He has an entourage. They were there. Is no one sitting down with him to talk about the right (and wrong) way to behave in public? Is his MOTHER talking to him about it? Pattie Mallette, Bieber’s mom,  is currently tweeting and promoting her book “Nowhere But Up.” But ironically, as generations of pop stars have learned, sometimes the trajectory of the flavor of the month is an exhilarating rise, followed by a painful, shockingly sudden descent. In fact, ‘up’ isn’t the only direction available. Let’s hope someone sets Bieber on the right path before he joins the likes of countless teen idols whose names you can’t quite remember.

VIDEO: Hear Magic Johnson Fully Support His Gay Son “A Million Percent”

While the argument over gay marriage is still being highly debated all around the country, there is one man who knows exactly what he believes, and is not afraid to shout it from the rooftops.

magic johnsonWhile the argument over gay marriage is still being highly debated all around the country, there is one man who knows exactly what he believes, and is not afraid to shout it from the rooftops.

In a new sit-down interview with TMZ, NBA legend Magic Johnson opened up about his son, EJ’s, homosexuality after the 20-year-old was seen walking hand-in-hand with his rumored boyfriend last month.

Johnson says that he and his wife, Cookie, figured out the news nearly eight years ago, and while the initial conversation was hard to have because of his son’s young age, they had absolutely nothing but support for the then teen:

“We’ve known for a long time that my son EJ was gay. It’s interesting when you’re his parents…We finally had to sit down and talk about it. I told him, ‘Look, I’m gonna love you regardless, just let me know. Are you, or aren’t you?’ And finally he said, ‘Yes, I am.’ …It was a hard conversation only because he was so young. What do you say to tell him at that age, what do you say to him?…I told him, ‘We are here to support you, man. We are going to love you no matter who you are or what you do. We just want you to love yourself and make sure that you have all the information.’ “

Johnson said that despite only wanting to comfort his son, EJ was extremely nervous about how his father would react, and if anything would change between them:

“He really wanted to make sure I was OK. He wasn’t worried about his mom, he was worried about me. I think he was worried about what would I think. Am I going to change toward him or something like that…I love E.J. so much. That’s my main man. I told him, ‘Nothing has changed.’ He’s just happy that it is out. I’m behind him a million percent.”

With his history of living with HIV, the 53-year-old Johnson closed the interview poignantly saying how much any discrimination of a gay male or female bothers him, and that people need to start accepting so these young kids know they have support wherever they go:

“It bothers me that they’re discriminating against anybody who’s gay. I’ve been in the gay movement for a long time because of HIV and AIDS. I see young men who are black who couldn’t come out, who couldn’t tell their parents, their neighbors. So now, it’s my son…This is the year 2013 – we should stop discriminating against people. And that’s what I’m gonna do with my son. But I’ll also support others. This is gonna be good for a lot of black young people…It’s unfortunate that we have to go through some of this negative stuff. But it’s not gonna change me, it’s not gonna change my son and the way I love him. If people can’t understand it, that’s on them.”

Watch the full interview below, and have massive respect for a man who has no fear, and the single goal of supporting and protecting his family.
