'If anyone out there has a mother, and she's not perfect, please call her and say you love her anyway'
Get ready to feel the feels. I told myself I wasn’t going to read this, because it’s only 10:30AM, and way too early to start crying. But alas, here I am. Earlier this week Robert Downey Jr. suffered one of the most difficult losses anyone can suffer—and yet, we all pretty much go through it at some point. His mother, Elsie Ann Downey, passed away at age 80, and it sounds like she had a tremendous effect on her son, his life, and many of his decisions. He did something that I know must have taken so much strength to do, and wrote an open letter in tribute to his mom. Click inside for more.

'Spiritually, she'll never leave us.'
Yesterday Amy Winehouse would have celebrated her 31st birthday, and in remembrance of her life and work, a bronze statue in her honor was unveiled in London. Her family, fans and friends were in attendance, including parents Mitch and Barbara. Mitch spoke, saying, “It’s a day of incredibly mixed emotions, ladies and gentlemen. They don’t put statues up to people that are with us anymore, so it kind reinforces the fact that physically, she’s gone. But spiritually, she’ll never leave us.” The statue looks like an honest portrayal of the singer, as many of us remember her; there’s a real sadness there, but a lot of love too.
Rest peacefully, Amy.

Let Freedom Tower Ring
Today is the 13th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center in NYC, the US Pentagon in Washington DC as well as American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 77 and United Airlines Flight 93. Although we are more than a decade removed from that terrible day, I feel that it is still very important to remember the lives lost all those years ago. On every other day of the year, I like to have fun with pop culture and entertainment but on this day, on September 11, I choose to put aside the frivolity and pause in order to remember. As I do each year, I ask that you will take the time that you would normally spend reading our daily blogposts and take the time to read the painfully long list of names listed below. For some of you younger readers, 9/11 may not be a very serious memory at all but it is a day that we must Never Forget. President Obama reminded us in his speech to the country last night that the world is still threatened by extremist terrorists. Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Today is also my mother’s birthday and, as circumstances worked out, I am very lucky to be able to spend the day with her celebrating her birthday. I will remember the events that took place 13 years ago today, I will remember the people that we lost … and I will also celebrate another year that I get to spend with my mother. More »
'you meet someone... and they don't even know that they impacted your life'
Over the past couple of weeks, many celebrities have come forward and shared these amazing stories about experiences they had with Robin Williams. Norm Macdonald tweeted out a great story, and Questlove, and countless others have shared their versions of ‘That one time Robin Williams kinda changed my life.’ Now, new-mom-to-be Mila Kunis is coming forward with hers. I like what she had to say, because it shows how seemingly small words can really stick with you, depending on who’s saying them. Click inside for more.
The two were longtime friends
This Monday the Emmy Awards will air on NBC, and I expect it to be a good show that will have its somber moments. There has been some speculation as to how the Robin Williams tribute might be handled, and it sounds like they have something interesting in the works. From the moment we learned of his death, there has been an outpouring from the entertainment world—I can’t really say I’ve seen anything like it before. Billy Crystal, a longtime friend of the late comedian, will lead the tribute, and I’m really looking forward to hearing what he has to say about Williams as a friend and collaborator.
