PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum
First of all, let me just say that I am SO obsessed with YATNB! I was writing Trent on Facebook today about it, because I cannot get over some of the comments from last week—you all had sooo many great stories about celebrities you’ve met (and how the experience either sucked or rocked), and I’ve just been having a blast reading about your FABULOUS lives. I feel like it also needs to be said that PITNBrs have some of the most bomb ass grammar on the interwebs. So, props to y’all. All day, every day. Today’s topic was partly inspired by an article I’m reading on The Hollywood Reporter: Plastic Surgery Suicide Puts Spotlight on Beverly Hills Patients’ Desperation, Lies and Mental States (I recommend reading it when you get a chance), so click inside for more!
Isn't it time we REALLY acknowledge that alcohol IS a drug?!?!
Okay, sooo. Shia LaBeouf is a hot mess right now, but let me just say that it could easily be a lot deeper than we think. We all know by now that when someone—anyone (celebrities, teens, children, adults)—acts out, it’s because they are going through some stuff. We don’t know what Shia is going through right now, but considering his arrest at Broadway’s Cabaret, it’s safe to say he could use a little help. Right now reports are flying around declaring that the actor absolutely was not on drugs that night. But he was definitely drinking. I think there’s something really problematic about this way of thinking, in which we collectively decide that since he wasn’t high on drugs (he was “just” drunk), there’s really nothing to worry about.

Complete And Total LIE
TMZ posted a story just a short time ago that makes the bold claim that T-Boz wants to “fight” Rihanna and “kick her ass” in the wake of that Twitter beef that the two got into a couple of weeks ago. Along with the story, TMZ provides a video interview with T-Boz … so, I watched the video in full to hear exactly what T-Boz had to say because I had a hard time believing that she would threaten to “kick Rihanna‘s ass“. Sure enough, T-Boz not only NEVER uttered the words “kick her ass” but in the video interview that TMZ provides she never once even hints at getting into a physical fight with Rihanna at all. See, this is how fake rumors get spread around. TMZ is almost always correct in their reporting but this T-Boz vs. Rihanna story is such a complete lie that I’m shocked that it would even get published online. More »
That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
It’s like, you don’t really want to believe that celebrities get special treatment from the courts, but… celebrities clearly get special treatment from the courts. As most of you probably remember, Kanye West went HAM on a paparazzi photographer a little while back and is now “paying for it”… if by “paying for it” I mean doing something he’d probably pay to do anyway… LMAO. This is such a hilarious story, I can’t even believe it’s real. Click inside for more!

REPEAT: This Is A Documentary. As In, A TRUE STORY.
Watching this horrifying trailer, I was reminded of my interview with Natasha Lyonne. I got to chat with her at an Orange Is The New Black press day, and I brought up her 1999 movie But I’m A Cheerleader. One thing she said was that it’s absolutely insane that she made that movie so long ago and we’re still, basically, having the same discussion about homosexuality. She went on a great rant, and I was thinking of it while watching this. So, there’s a Christian behavioral modification program called Escuela Carib that sends unknowing kids to the Dominican Republic to… what? Kidnap the gay out of them? This is a true story. ‘N Sync‘s Lance Bass, and The Real World star Mike C. Manning executive produced Kidnapped For Christ, and you won’t believe what you see. Also great to know this is a billion dollar industry. Jesus, Yeezus, somebody take the wheel.
The documentary won the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at Slamdance Film Festival this year. It premieres on Showtime July 10th.
And this: “We’re in the business of trying to save prodigals.” Dude, this is sooo not what that scripture means. Literally, “prodigal son” means someone who willingly comes home… Grrr…. step up your Bible game before you come at me!
SO … Mariah Carey has selected the song You Don’t Know What To Do as her next single and, as such, has unveiled the cover art for said single. BUT, Mimi wants you to know that she had NOTHING to do with the single cover artwork at all. Why, pray tell, would Mimi want to make this point evidently clear? Well, because the cover art is so freakishly Photoshopped that not even she wants anything to do with it. LOL. Click below to see this horrid creation of scary to see what all the fuss is about.

I'm almost certain that Nori was in attendance
North West turned 1 year old last Sunday on Father’s Day but she had to wait an entire week later to actually celebrate her birthday with family and friends. North‘s family decided that her first birthday party had to be an over-the-top affair because, of course that is what one does for a 1 year old baby who doesn’t understand what the Hell is going on. For North‘s party, her family home was converted into a massive event called Kidchella complete with rides and attractions that she was too little to enjoy as well as the pretty racist cultural appropriation of Native American dress … which, I must say, sounds about right for this particular family.

"I wish I was dead already"
Lana Del Rey, who really isn’t at all interested in feminism so don’t talk to her about it, sat down for a new interview with The Guardian to promote the release of her new album Ultraviolence and she revealed to the interviewer that she wishes she was dead. Those of you familiar with LDR‘s music know that she tends to be a bit dramatic with her lyrics but from what I recall, she never seemed to convey the message that she has a death wish. BUT, that’s the tale she’s sellin’ in this new interview so … take it for what it’s worth. Click below for excerpts from Lana Del Rey‘s gothiest interview ever. More »

"Every time I talk, it is a crack in the matrix."
Earlier this week there were hints that Kanye West was about to release something … new. It was unclear if we were to expect the release of a new song or even the release of a new album but there were suggestions that something was going to be released soon. Today, we learn what that something is. Kanye has released a 30+ minute long spoken word video that features Yeezy delivering advice, aspirations, bon mots, sound bytes about art, himself, life, existence … you name it. Oh yes, there is a HEALTHY dose of egotism in this video so, beware. Here are just a few of the quotes that you will hear in this 34 minute video:
If you’re taught you can’t do anything, you won’t do anything. I was taught I can do anything.
I just want to help. From day one, I just wanted to help.
If you’re a Kanye West fan, you’re not a fan of me you’re a fan of yourself. You will believe in yourself.
I’m just the espresso. I’m just the shot in the morning to get you going.
I’m not a billionaire, I may not be the richest person on the planet, I might not be the most attractive guy, I might not be the most like but I — right now — have the most powerful voice by a mile and I’m going to use that.
The whole sermon, Kanye West’s New Testament, can be heard in full above. I believe that some of these quotes and sound bytes are from speeches that Kanye has delivered and interviews that he gave before but the whole thing has been edited together for this one long-ass sermon. Whether this comes from Kanye or a fan with a lot of time on their hands, this video will deffo feed the soul of any diehard Yeezy fan. Have a listen above and see how much of the 34 minutes you can listen to. Spread the word, y’all, cuz the gospel of Yeezus is here.
