China’s Fan Bingbing Breaks Silence After Being Fined $70 Million for Tax Evasion

Fan Bingbing, one of China’s most popular actresses, has not been seen since in months — but she has broken her silence to address her massive tax evasion fines.

Fan was fined by Chinese tax authorities, Xinhua first reported. According to Bloomberg, Fan and her companies were fined 884 million yuan, which is equivalent to $ 129 million. Fan is responsible for $ 70 million of the fines.

Fan will not be charged if she pays back the money within a time limit, The Hollywood Reporter said that Xinhua reported. A person from her company, however, is reportedly in custody.

Fan made a statement about her situation on Weibo. She started, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “Recently I have been enduring an unprecedented amount of pain, undergoing deep self-reflection and introspection. I am deeply ashamed and feel guilty for what I have done, and I offer my sincere apologies to everyone.”

The X-Men actress said, “I have come to realize that, as a public figure, I should have observed the law, setting a good example for society and the entertainment industry. I shouldn’t have lost the ability to control myself in the face of economic interests, allowing myself to break the law.”

Fan noted that she committed tax evasion “by taking advantage of ‘yin yang contracts’” and that she accepted the fines.

She continued, “As an actor, I take pride in showcasing our country’s culture on the global stage, and I do my best to be in the forefront of this. I owe my success to the support of my country and the people. Without the great policies of the Party and the state, without the love of the people, there would have been no Fan Bingbing.”

“I failed my country which nurtured me; I failed the society which trusted me; I failed the fans who loved me,” she wrote. “I offer my sincere apology here once again! I beg for everyone’s forgiveness!”

One of the last times Fan was seen in public was at May’s Cannes Film Festival to promote the female spy thriller 355, which costars Jessica ChastainPenelope CruzLupita Nyong’o and Marion Cotillard.

Fan’s disappearance from public life made the news when state-run Chinese paper Securities Daily wrote that she was “under control” and “would accept the legal decision.” The story was then pulled by the outlet.

One rumor, that Fan was seeking asylum in Los Angeles, spread after Hong Kong’s The Apple Daily said that Jackie Chan had advised her to go to an immigration office. Chan’s company labeled the allegation “nonsense,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Mom of S.C. Teacher Killed by Alligator Speaks Out: ‘I Keep Thinking About Her Being Dragged Away’

The mother of a 45-year-old kindergarten teacher from South Carolina who was killed by an alligator while walking her dog on Monday says she’s still struggling to come to terms with her daughter’s death.

“I cannot make any sense of what’s happened. None at all,” Julia Meza said through tears during an interview with Today on Tuesday. “She would never go near an alligator, she would never irritate an alligator.”

Meza’s daughter, Cassandra Cline, was walking with her dog near a lagoon around 9:30 a.m. on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, when an 8-foot alligator attacked the dog.

Cline struggled to save her dog, but was attacked and pulled underwater by the alligator, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.

“I just keep thinking about her being dragged away by that,” Meza said. “I just, I just can’t imagine it.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Hilton Head Island Fire Rescue and Sea Pines Security personnel arrived at the scene and found Cline, a resident of Sea Pines Living, in the water.

David Lucas, of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, told ABC News that Cline was still alive when she was pulled from the water, but died at the scene.

Sam Chapplear, with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, told ABC that Cline had gotten into a tug-of-war with the animal to save her dog before being attacked herself.

The alligator was later found and euthanized, according to the site. The dog survived the incident.

The Beaufort County Coroner, Edward Allen, scheduled an autopsy to be performed at the Medical University of South Carolina to determine Cline’s cause death, according to the sheriff’s office.

Now, Cline’s family and friends are remembering the woman they nicknamed “Sassy.”

“She was a wonderful, giving person,” Meza told Today, noting that her daughter was a kindergarten teacher. “She’s been one for years and she loved her students.”

RELATED: Woman Killed by 8-Foot Alligator While Walking Dog in Gated Golf Community in Hilton Head, S.C.

Sea Pines Living officials wrote in a statement on Facebook that they are “shocked and heartbroken” after hearing the news.

“It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the tragic loss of one of our Sea Pines property owners Cassandra Cline,” they wrote.

“The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement earlier today stating that Ms.Cline was killed by an alligator in a lagoon in the Club Course area of Sea Pines. An alligator—believed responsible for the attack—was located and removed from the scene.”

Girl, 16, Suffers Broken Ribs After Being Pushed Off Bridge in Dramatic Video

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

A 16-year-old girl sustained multiple injuries when she fell dozens of feet from a bridge after being unexpectedly pushed by a friend, and the incident has now sparked a police investigation, PEOPLE confirms.

In footage published by multiple outlets including KATU and Today, Jordan Holgerson is shown standing along a ledge of a bridge at Moulton Falls in Yacolt, Washington. The KATU video shows Jordan telling her group of friends, “No, I won’t go in,” as they pressure her to jump into the river nearly 60 feet below.

Yet, Jordan’s friends continue to press her in the video, and after she declines to jump once again, an unidentified woman is seen shoving Jordan while her back is turned. The push caused her to fall off the bridge.

A few seconds later, the high school student hit the water with a loud smack that can be heard in the video.

“I have five broken ribs, air bubbles in my chest, and I have a punctured lung,” Jordan told KGW8 from PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver, where she is recovering.

RELATEDWoman Drifts for 45 Minutes in Terrifying Parasailing Accident Before Crashing, Breaking 4 Ribs

Sgt. Brent Waddell, a spokesman for the Clark County Sheriff’s Department, tells PEOPLE there is an ongoing investigation into the incident.

Jordan told KGW8 that she likely lost consciousness for a moment before hitting the water.

“In midair, I think I might’ve blacked out,” she said. “I was awake and aware when I hit the water.”

After plunging into the river, Jordan said someone nearby jumped into the water to retrieve her, and she was then transported to the hospital.

The original video of the incident, which was posted to YouTube, was removed after it went viral.

Jordan’s mother, Genelle Holgerson, told the Thoroughbred Daily News that her daughter is still in pain and is “very tired,” and they don’t know how long she will remain in the hospital. But the family feels fortunate Jordan’s injuries weren’t as severe as they easily could have been.

“She is lucky she is not paralyzed or dead,” her mom added to Thoroughbred Daily. “We’re lucky she is going to recover and not have permanent injuries.”

“I’m in a lot of pain without medication,” Jordan told Today in an interview that aired Friday.

Genelle said the family knows the identity of the friend who pushed Jordan, and is calling for her to turn herself in.

“I’m very upset with her,” she told Thoroughbred Daily. “She is an adult, and I’m sure she should have known better,” Genelle told the outlet. “She could have killed my daughter.”

Brad Pitt ‘Was Dreaming About Being a Dad’ Years Before He Met Angelina Jolie: Source

Brad Pitt is feeling better now that he gets to spend more time with his kids.

The actor, 54, is in London now — where ex Angelina Jolie is currently filming Maleficent 2  — to see his children for a second time in recent weeks after a judge presiding over the former couple’s divorce proceedings established a detailed schedule for him to spend time with Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. The kids are currently living in London with Jolie as she films the Disney movie.

And being with the kids is already brightening his mood.

“Having kids was always very special to him. He wanted kids for years before he met Angie,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He was dreaming about being a dad. And he has always been a great dad. Very involved and present. He talks about the kids nonstop now. He brought gifts back to England.”

The court papers obtained by PEOPLE stated, “the children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and that Jolie, 43, could lose full custody of the kids if she doesn’t allow them to grow their relationships with Pitt.

Maddox, 16, their oldest son, isn’t included in the timetable. That’s because, according to the court, Maddox is old enough to decide for himself how much time he wants to spend with his father.

A spokesperson for Jolie called the court paper leak “misleading” and “not in the best interests of the children.”

The new ruling has made a significant impact in Pitt’s life as he was struggling with not knowing when he would have time with the kids.

“Brad has been in the best mood,” the source says. “Although he was away from the kids for a week, it seems just the fact that he now knows when he will see them, makes him very happy. He couldn’t wait to get back to England. Not following a proper custody schedule was very difficult for him. And very sad as well.”

Photographer, 30, Dies After Being Swept Away by Flood Waters While Taking Photos in Storm Drain

Friends of a beloved Philadelphia photographer are mourning the woman’s death after she was fatally swept away in a storm drain during a flash flood last weekend.

Rebecca Bunting, 30, and her boyfriend were inside a sewer by Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia taking photos around 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, when a rush of water came through and dragged them both down the system, police say.

The man was able to pull himself out, but Bunting was swept away. A neighbor told 6 ABC that he heard a man screaming for help Saturday night. He said he ran outside to find Bunting’s boyfriend screaming her name by the water.

A rescue team found her body around 10:45 a.m. on Sunday, trapped under furniture left in Pennypack Creek near Philadelphia’s Holmesburg neighborhood.  In the wake of the death, Bunting’s boyfriend remembered her in a pair of Instagram posts.

“I’m glad I got to make so many memories with her. I love you so much Becca and I’m hurting so bad right now,” he wrote alongside a photo of the two posing together with wide smiles.

“Thinking back on all these memories makes me smile while these tears roll down my face. I will continue to share our memories since we had so many great ones. Please watch over your family and I, we really need it right now my love.”

Police say Bunting and her boyfriend entered the storm drain without permission to take part in “Urban Exploration,” in which they film their experiences while taking photos and footage at often abandoned locations.

“She was always trying to get really cool photos,” Bunting’s friend, Cristen DeDomenico, told 6 ABC. “She’s really talented. She could bring out beauty in any landscape.”

Bunting’s Instagram is filled with artistic photos of empty churches, plane wreckage, abandoned hospitals and other spaces. She amassed more than 15,000 followers on the social media site and often wrote of her love for photography.

“My camera is my tool,” she wrote alongside one Instagram photo of herself holding a camera. “Through it I give reason to everything around me.”

Friends have posted several tributes to Bunting on her Facebook page, and have announced a memorial for the artist scheduled for June 17.

“Words can’t express the heartache I feel in this moment. The world lost a truly amazing person Rebecca Bword Bunting …” one person wrote in a Facebook post. “Our weirdness and love for art quickly combined and you posed for a lot of MySpace worthy photoshoots (like this photo you climbed on a roof for) ha. We would spend days dressing up and taking pictures for fun.”

They continued: “We climbed rocks and “keep out” fences while exploring the places most people wouldn’t go. You always saw beauty in the things people took for granted. I loved having you as a neighbor and friend. You are an amazing soul that made an impact on the world through your work and existence. I’m grateful that I was able to meet such a beautiful person in my lifetime. Rest In Peace”

Prince William Just Revealed What Kate ‘Really’ Thinks About Him Being at a Motorcycle Race Today

Looking for adventure!

Motorcycle enthusiast Prince William flew to the Isle of Man for one of the world’s top races on Wednesday.

William, 35, who still rides a high-powered Ducati (which he recently used to get him to a soccer match with pals!), went to watch the famous festival on the small island between Britain and Ireland. And while the prince couldn’t wait to take in the event, his wife Kate Middleton didn’t share the same excitement.

William confessed Kate may have been a little skeptical of the intentions of his visit. When Laurence Skelly, the Isle of Man government’s minister for enterprise, asked him about her views. William told him, “When I said I was going to the Isle of Man for an official visit she said, ‘Really?’ ”

In the past, Kate has admitted to feeling “terrified” when her husband goes out on his motorcycle. And during a 2015 visit to Scotland, she said: “I’m going to keep George off of it!”

The annual Tourist Trophy (or TT race) is a major fixture in the motorcycling circuit. It began in 1907 and is one of the oldest motorsport events in the world.

As well as seeing a number of races, the prince met officials and support staff, and volunteers involved in the event.

William caught some of the final stages of the TT Supersport Race 2 before heading to a reception in the Government House Tent, where he met race staff and volunteers, civic dignitaries and representatives of local businesses.

He also spent time with the Joey Dunlop Foundation charity, which provides specialist accommodation for visitors to the Isle of Man with a disability.

In addition to his love of motorcycling, William would have flown near the race’s location while patrolling the Irish Sea on missions with the RAF Search and Rescue crews based at Anglesey. He once picked up a stricken sailor from the sea near the island.

The prince recently had the chance to test drive a bike during a visit to the headquarters of Triumph Motorcycles. There, he slipped a reflective jacket on over his blazer and sweater for a quick ride on the Triumph Tiger 1200. He also got to pose on a vintage model.

PEOPLE’s Call to Action: Contact Congress to Ask What Is Being Done to Stop the Epidemic of Gun Violence

On Friday, just as the school day was just getting underway, a gunman opened fire inside Santa Fe High School in Texas, killing 10 and wounding 13.

Eight students and two teachers were killed, leaving their loved ones grieving the loss of “extraordinary” lives.

The suspected shooter, a 17-year-old student, had planned to kill himself after the massacre but lost his nerve and surrendered instead, authorities said.

The attack, which began around 7:30 a.m., came just months after a mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, killed 17 people — and, less than a year before that, a mass shooter at a concert in Las Vegas killed 58. Weeks after the Vegas massacre, a gunman fatally shot 25 people, including a pregnant woman, at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Speaking to reporters on Friday afternoon, surrounded by law enforcement and other politicians, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called it “the worst disaster ever to strike this community.”

“We need to do more than just pray for the victims and their families,” Abbott said. “It’s time in Texas that we take action to step up and make sure this tragedy is never repeated ever again in the history of the state.”

To help you make your voice heard and to let your representatives know you will vote on the issue of sensible gun legislation, PEOPLE is once again releasing its Call to Action.

Here is the contact information for every single voting member of Congress. There are no easy solutions to gun violence, but Washington needs to know that doing nothing is not an option anymore.

Chrissy Teigen Says She’s ‘Over’ Being Pregnant: I ‘Wanna Hold My Boy’

Chrissy Teigen is beyond ready to meet her baby boy.

The 32-year-old model is currently expecting her second child with husband John Legend, but she’s just about had it with the whole pregnancy thing.

“Happy pregnant Chrissy is gone. meet OVER IT Chrissy,” she tweeted on Wednesday night. “Wanna hold my boy let’s do thisssssss.”

A fan commented that it seems as though Teigen has been pregnant for “three years,” and the cookbook author couldn’t agree more. “It feels worse for me because with IVF you know *so* early,” she shared. “I mean I knew I was pregnant at 11 days in. Crazy.”

Since revealing in November that a sibling for Luna Simone was on his way — hilariously captioning the announcement video, “It’s John’s!” — Teigen has been keeping busy, from tweeting about the Met Gala to celebrating Luna’s second birthday.

Last month, Teigen and Legend prepared for their new addition with a star-studded baby shower. Attendees included couples Kim Kardashian West and Kanye WestBrooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick and Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita.

“Opening gifts in front of people makes me want to die. Receiving gifts makes me very uncomfortable because I feel blessed to the max already and I really hate writing thank you cards with my poor penmanship,” Teigen wrote on Instagram.

Continuing, she said, “But people I love trick me with dinner invites and they happen. Thank you to all friends on both coasts, for knowing me exactly. A mellow night of dinner. Cake. And love. That is all I could ever want for a perfect night. ❤❤❤.”

British Toddler at Center of Legal Battle Dies After Being Taken Off Life Support: ‘Heartbroken’

Alfie Evans, the 23-month-old terminally ill British boy at the center of a headline-making legal battle, has died just five days after he was taken off life support, his parents announced.

“Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am,” wrote his mother Kate James, 20, on Facebook early Saturday. “We are heartbroken. Thank you everyone for all your support 💙

His father, 21-year-old Thomas Evans, also wrote on Facebook, “My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30 😥😢😥😢😥 absolutely heartbroken💔😭 I LOVE YOU MY GUY💙💙💙👨‍👦👨‍👦.”

Alfie initially survived in the days after medical staff at Liverpool’s Alder Hey Children’s Hospital cut off his life assistance, Evans said. Alfie continued to live despite being in a “semi-vegetative state” as a result of a mystery degenerative neurological condition, surprising doctors who said further attempts to treat the boy would be futile, according to the BBC. Alfie initially survived on his own for six hours on Monday before doctors provided the child with oxygen and hydration.

“We wish to express our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to Alfie’s family at this extremely distressing time,” Alder Hey Children’s Hospital said in a statement. “All of us feel deeply for Alfie, Kate, Tom and his whole family and our thoughts are with them. This has been a devastating journey for them and we would ask that their privacy and the privacy of staff at Alder Hey is respected.”

The hospital also announced a makeshift memorial for the boy.

“We feel sure people will wish to place tributes to Alfie along with messages of support for Kate and Tom,” Alder Hey Hospital said. “To ensure there is sufficient space for these and to ensure the safety of all those who wish to visit, we have secured a suitable place in Springfield Park situated next to Alder Hey Hospital. This is on the advice of Merseyside Police.”

Evans and James have been in a lengthy battle to keep the ailing toddler on life support. Alfie has been at the hospital since December 2016.

However, a series of court rulings sided with doctors who said there was no hope for the boy, according to the Washington Post. The BBC reported that doctors argued that keeping Alfie on a ventilator would be “futile,” “unkind and inhumane.” Most recently, the European Court of Human Rights rejected the parents’ request to keep doctors at the Liverpool hospital from taking Alfie off of the assistance.

“I faught (sic) hard in court for my son because I know what’s right!!” the grieving father wrote in a Facebook post after the court’s decision. “And look where we are now my son is still ALIVE AFTER OVER 10 horrendous scary heartbreaking hours.”

The human rights court’s decision upheld that of Britain’s Supreme Court, in which justices said it would be pointless to take Alfie to Rome for treatment.

Still, the head of the Vatican’s Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital said the Italian defense ministry had a plane ready and waiting to take Alfie to Italy for treatment if the additional Tuesday hearing grants the family’s appeal, according to the Associated Press.

On Monday, Pope Francis even voiced his support for Alfie.

“Moved by the prayers and immense solidarity shown little Alfie Evans, I renew my appeal that the suffering of his parents may be heard and that their desire to seek new forms of treatment may be granted,” the Pope tweeted.

RELATED VIDEO: Charlie Gard, Terminally Ill British Baby at Center of Legal Battle, Dies

In a fundraiser for Alfie, the family wrote that he was born “healthy and on time” in May 2016. However, the parents soon noticed Alfie was not accomplishing common milestones like lifting his head, maintaining eye contact and eating with his hands, according to the Just Giving fundraising page. Doctors initially believed the boy was simply a “late developer,” but became concerned when he began experiencing spasms and developed an infection.

The situation is similar to that of another London couple, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, whose son, Charlie, died in July after a lengthy court battle to treat the terminally ill 11-month-old baby. Earlier this year, Takesha Thomas and Lanre Haastrup lost their son, Isaiah, after a judge ruled that doctors could stop providing intensive care treatment to the boy who suffered brain damage.

Meghan Markle’s Favorite Ring Before She Got That Ring Is Being Rereleased — and PEOPLE Readers Can Get It First

Meghan Markle‘s go-to bling — that is, before Prince Harry gave her that gorgeous diamond engagement ring featuring a stone from Botswana and two others from Princess Diana’s personal collection — is back.

Back before she was dating Harry, when she was still an actress slash activist with an active Instagram account, Meghan was frequently spotted wearing BaubleBar’s Peacemaker Ring, a gorgeous gold style featuring a leaf-like detail that wraps around two fingers, with a longer vine extending down the center. The branches of the vine also feature small crystals and is “inspired by nature,” according to the company’s website.

The ring has been sold out for a while — until now. For those of you who have been wanting to get your hands on Meghan’s statement-making piece, you’re in luck: On March 1, BaubleBar is releasing the style again in honor of their soon-to-be royal fan — and PEOPLE readers have exclusive access to purchase the ring right now. Even better news? With a price tag of $ 42, this ring will give you the style of a royal on a commoner’s budget.

But if you want to rock this Meghan favorite piece yourself, you’d better hurry: It sold out once, and now that it’s got the royal seal of approval, it’ll undoubtedly sell out again.

Dolly Parton’s New Children’s Album Will Benefit Her Non-Profit: ‘People Relate to Me’ Being Like ‘Mother Goose’

 

Dolly Parton is using her self-proclaimed fairy-tale face (and voice) for a great cause.

The famed singer and actress is set to release her first children’s album, I Believe In You, whose profits will go right back into her non-profit organization Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

“That fact that I love kids and people relate to me looking like a Mother Goose or Cinderella — you know, one of those over-exaggerated cartoon characters — it gets children’s attention, and it keeps me young,” Parton, 71, tells PEOPLE ahead of the album’s release.

“We talk about responsibility, we talk about bullying,” she adds of the album’s themes. “We talk about giving, we talk about friendship, loyalty and all those wonderful little things, and we do it in a fun way. The songs are very uplifting, very singable. Hopefully, people are gonna get a kick out of this, and the kids are gonna love it.”

The 9 to 5 legend launched the Imagination Library in 1995. Over the past 22 years, the organization has provided almost 100 million books to children in an effort to encourage a love of reading. And the story behind her inspiration is a tearjerker.

“I started it in honor of my dad,” Parton explains. “My dad was not able to read and write — he was a country boy with a bunch of kids, and he had to work instead of going to school when he was a little boy, and so he never had the chance to get an education.”

“And it seemed to really bother him a lot and I thought, ‘Well, what can I do for my precious dad?’ ‘Cause he was the greatest daddy in the world and one of the smartest people I’d ever known,” she adds. “So I said, ‘Dad, why don’t we put together a little program where we give children books from the time they’re born, once a month, until they start school?’ ”

“That way, they can learn to read, love books. If you can read, you can kinda self-educate,” Parton adds. “Now we’re all over the world. We’ve given away almost 100 million books, and all the money from this project goes into the Imagination Library to put more books in the hands of more children.”

I Believe In You is available now.

When Olivia Newton-John began to have trouble walking, she never imagined that it was due to a cancer relapse.

The 68-year-old actress told Today that she initially thought her pain was due to sciatica. However, she soon learned she had breast cancer that had metastasized to the sacrum.

“I guess it was a little surprising,” she told Natalie Morales in an interview that aired Thursday morning. “I never would have associated it because in my mind, it was over. I had finished with it.”

However, Newton-John is not letting her diagnosis get her down. Although she admits to having dark moments, she chooses to be positive and look forward with a “glass half full” attitude.

“I don’t read into prognosis and statistics because I think that can really be depressing,” she said. “I’m not going to be one of those statistics, I’m going to be fine.”

The Grease star added, “I will probably deal with this in my life as an ongoing thing. I think you can live with cancer the way you live with other things if you take care of yourself.”

In addition to traditional medical treatments such as chemotherapy, Newton-John credits beating cancer the first time to her overall wellness plan. The cancer treatment center in Melbourne, Australia, which bears her name now offers patients holistic treatments including yoga, massages, art and music therapy to aid in their recovery.

The actress also shared that she’s been treating the pain with medical marijuana her husband John Easterling grows.

“People have this vision from the ’60s of people just sitting around and getting stoned,” she said. “I think that it’s not about that. This plant is a healing plant. I think we need to change the vision of what it is because it helped me greatly and it helps with pain and inflammation.”

Newton-John, who said her cancer battle has taught her that she’s stronger than she knew, calls herself a cancer “thriver.”

“Survivor sounds like someone clinging onto a lifeboat to me,” she said. “A thriver is someone who’s already off the boat and on land.”

Mel B Opens Up on Being a Single Mom Again After Nasty Split from Stephen Belafonte

Melanie “Mel B” Brown says she’s adjusting to life as a single mom again, nearly six months after the nasty split from husband Stephen Belafonte

“My kids are great. 18, 10 and 5,” the America’s Got Talent judge told reporters after a taping of the show. “They’re all doing amazing and they’re all lovely.”

“I just make them all listen to me,” she said. “And they don’t always do.”

Brown added, “I was a single parent for a long time with Phoenix, so I kind of learned that way, and moms always know best.”

Phoenix, 18, is Brown’s daughter from her first marriage, to dancer Jimmy Gulzar. Brown and Gulzar split about a year after Phoenix was born.

The 42-year-old singer admits that there is no one rule when it comes to parenting as a single mom.

“There’s no advice that I could give. Every mother, every parent is different,” she said. “The number one rule is you show your kid lots of love and respect, and you treat your kid how you want them to treat other people.”

RELATED VIDEO: Spice Girl Reunion! Mel B Confirms That She Is In for a 20th Anniversary Tour

Brown filed for divorce from Belafonte in March after 10 years of marriage. In explosive court documents, she accused Belafonte – the father of Brown’s youngest child, Madison – of abuse. Belafonte denied the allegations and was awarded $ 40,000 a month in spousal support by a judge last month.

Brown also joked that she’s “so happy to be single right now” after a group of hunky a capella singers from the Air Force Academy finished their rendition of “Some Nights” on Monday night’s quarterfinal episode of America’s Got Talent.

When she’s not parenting, Brown likes to meditate and work on the art of Reiki, a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation.

“I do a lot of Reiki,” she said. “I listen to a lot of guided meditation, chakras and all that kind of stuff.”

Chris Paul on Five Four Collection and Being a Free Agent

NEW YORK – Chris Paul didn’t seem stressed about being a free agent.
The NBA player, who is currently between teams, was in good spirits on Tuesday night while celebrating the launch of his capsule collection with Five Four, a men’s wear subscription service, at Catch in the Meatpacking District.
“This is sort of my first time being a free agent, and I can see how it can become stressful and taxing and you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. But I’m so fortunate to have the family and support system that I have,” said Paul.
Although Paul has worked with the Jordan brand for the past 10 years, this is the first time he’s partnered with a fashion company. According to Paul, some of that had to do with his contract with the Nike-owned company, but a lot of it had to do with the relationships he built with Andres Izquieta and Dee Murthy, Five Four’s cofounders. Paul first met Izquieta and Murthy when he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers and was intrigued by the Lob City sweatshirts that fans were wearing in the stands, which Five Four used to make.
“It’s been amazing to watch their growth since

The DC Universe Is Being Invaded By Evil Batmen

DC’s upcoming event comic Dark Nights: metal just got a lot bigger, as the company has revealed a series of seven one-shot specials tying into the core mini-series from writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capuulo. Each of these one-shots will star a twisted, evil version of Batman pulled from the “Dark Multiverse” introduced in Metal. And it appears each one is also patterned after one of the core members of the Justice League.

Check out the slideshow before for a look at Jason Fabok’s cover art for each issue and to learn which creative teams will be involved.

Additionally, DC has revealed that several ongoing Rebirth titles will tie into the events of Metal this September. Teen Titans #12 (written by Benjamin Percy and drawn by Mirka Andolfo), Nightwing #29 (written by Tim Seeley and drawn by Paul Pelletier) and Suicide Squad #26 (written by Rob Williams and drawn by Stepjan Sejic) will all participate in a crossover called “Gotham Resistance,” as these characters fight to defend Gotham from an army of villains driven mad by the influence of these seven evil Batmen.

Donald Trump Is Winning At Being The Butt Of Late-Night TV Jokes

The jokes are on President Donald Trump. Literally.

Trump is on course to become the most joked-about president on late-night television in at least the past 25 years, according to a new study.

The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University counted the number of opening monologue Trump-themed zingers delivered by Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah during Trump’s first 100 days in office.

It found they mocked Trump some 1,060 times. When combined with jokes about Trump’s family and administration, the figure soared to 1,530.

Donald Trump is head and shoulders above the competition as the politician late night comedians most love to hate,” the center’s director, S. Robert Lichter, said in a statement Thursday.

According to the tally, the 100-day joke total is already higher than the number of quips made about former presidents Barack Obama (936), George W. Bush (546) and Bill Clinton (440) during each of their first 12 months in office.

Trump is also “on track to easily eclipse” the record 1,717 jokes made about Clinton in 1998 amid the Monica Lewinsky scandal and his impeachment, said the center, which has been analyzing late-night TV joke data since 1992.

Colbert, whose “Late Show” ratings have spiked during Trump’s administration, told 337 jokes about Trump. Noah made 315, Fallon had 231, and Kimmel did 177.

Caitlyn Jenner On Trump, Kendall’s Pepsi Ad, Her Beef With Ellen And Being Catcalled

Caitlyn Jenner is currently in the middle of a massive publicity tour for her new tell-air memoir, The Secrets Of My Life, which hit stores Tuesday.

After catching up with Diane Sawyer on Friday ― almost exactly two years after she came out as transgender on ABC’s “20/20” ― Jenner made stops at “Good Morning America,” Fox News and “Live With Kelly.” And on Tuesday she dropped by HuffPost for an in depth, nearly hour-long interview. 

The 67-year-old Olympian and reality TV star was in high spirits and opened up about a wide range of topics, from President Donald Trump to Kendall’s controversial Pepsi ad to her beef with Ellen DeGeneres, as well as her thoughts on womanhood and being catcalled.

On Trump and reconciling her identity as a Republican with her identity as a member of the transgender community:

“What I’d say to Donald Trump is, “Be true to yourself.” You said during the whole campaign — and actually I did talk to him during the campaign on the phone about transgender issues and the entire LGBT community — and he was nothing but in support. He was great on the phone and I complimented him… I thought we might be OK here. But it turned around for me when the whole Title IX thing went down…”

On Kim Kardashian being the first of her children she told about being trans and what Kim taught her about being a woman:

“Kim is so curious, so openminded. She goes, ‘What the hell is going on with you?’… Eventually, years down the line [after I initially came out to Kim], I decided, OK, I’m finally at a point in my life where my kids are all grown, it’s time for me, I have to live my life authentically, and I told Kim, I said, ‘I’m doing it,’ and her reaction was ‘Well then, girl, you’d better rock it! If you’re going to do this, you can’t go out and let the paparazzi get a picture of you just absolutely disheveled…’”

On Kendall Jenner’s controversial Pepsi ad:

“Honestly I felt very sorry for Kendall. It’s kind of like, sometimes, ‘welcome to the real world.’ We live in a very tough political environment, social environment. You have massive amounts of media looking for a story and obviously some people were looking at that commercial very differently than the way I was looking at it. I get that. And Kendall gets that too. She didn’t mean any malice. She goes, ‘I’m just a model that was hired for a job to go in there and do this…’”

On her feelings about Ellen DeGeneres, after claiming in her memoir that her appearance on the comedian’s show and DeGeneres’ subsequent actions “further alienated [her] from members of the LGBTQ community”:

“I don’t hold a grudge against nobody. Would I do the show again? Ehh… I don’t know. Maybe it’d be good to do the show just to get it out with Ellen. I’d rather do it in private over dinner. I really don’t want to do it publicly. I just was hurt by that — especially because that was at the beginning…”

On womanhood and being catcalled:

“Yesterday we were walking over to Tavern On The Green… and some guy — it was like the construction worker guy — starts yelling at me… he was yelling some rude remark that you’d say to some woman. And I just started laughing because I didn’t grow up like that, as a woman who got all of that stuff. It was just kind of funny. It happens all the time — that’s what women go through. Courtney, my hairstylist, was with me and she goes [dismissively waves] ‘yeah…’ She’s used to that. She’s had all that yelling at but I haven’t. So, yeah, there are a lot of things in life ― of womanhood ― that I did not experience… I’ll always consider myself a trans woman because I missed a lot of stuff. And trans women are good!”

Caitlyn Jenner’s memoir, The Secrets Of My Life, is now available.

Ina Garten On Being Childfree: ‘It’s A Choice And That Was The Choice I Made’

Ina Garten’s life is a delicious one ― and as the “Barefoot Contessa” and cookbook queen, she never felt like she needed to have kids for it to be that way. 

In a visit with Katie Couric for Couric’s podcast on Thursday, Garten opened up about her decision not to have children with her husband Jeffrey. 

“We decided not to have children,” she told Couric. “I really appreciate that other people do, and we will always have friends that have children that we are close to, but it was a choice I made very early. I really felt ― I feel ― that I would have never been able to have the life I’ve had. So it’s a choice and that was the choice I made.”

Never change, Ina.

Trevor Noah Calls Out Ivanka Trump For Being A ‘Liar’

Trevor Noah does not forget. 

The “Daily Show” host called out Ivanka Trump for going back on her word, having claimed she would not take a job in her father’s White House, during his “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That” segment on Thursday.

“Remember how Donald Trump and Ivanka promised they wouldn’t turn the White House into a mom-and-pop store? Yeah?” Noah asked. “No nepotism. Remember that? Well, clearly, they don’t.” 

On Wednesday, the White House announced that Ivanka would be taking an official unpaid role as an assistant to the president, despite insisting just months ago that she was only “going to be a daughter.”

Noah knew it was only a matter of time before President Trump brought daughter Ivanka on board, but for it to happen only two months in? 

“This guy has the patience of a toddler,” Noah said.

Tim Allen Compares Being A Conservative In Hollywood To Living In Nazi Germany

Tim Allen thinks being a conservative in Hollywood is like living in “’30s Germany.”

At least, he said as much during an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on March 17. 

“You’ve gotta be real careful around here,” Allen told Kimmel after the host asked him about attending Donald Trump’s inauguration. “You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes. This is like ‘30s Germany. I don’t know what happened. If you’re not part of the group, you know, ‘What we believe is right!’ I go, ‘Well I might have a problem with that.’ I’m a comedian, I like going on both sides.”

The former “Home Improvement” star’s comments are being met with outrage by New York’s Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, which has demanded the actor apologize. In a statement posted on Facebook on March 19, the organization wrote that Allen’s comments are a “deeply offensive characterization that trivialize the horrors imposed on Jews in Nazi Germany.”

“Tim, have you lost your mind?” Steven Goldstein, the center’s executive director said, per the statement. “No one in Hollywood today is subjecting you or anyone else to what the Nazis imposed on Jews in the 1930s — the world’s most evil program of dehumanization, imprisonment and mass brutality, implemented by an entire national government, as the prelude for the genocide of nearly an entire people.”

He continued, “Sorry, Tim, that’s just not the same as getting turned down for a movie role. It’s time for you to leave your bubble to apologize to the Jewish people and, to be sure, the other peoples also targeted by the Nazis.”

Artist Paints Interracial Couples Just Being, Together

In the early 1990s, painter Kerry James Marshall created a series of paintings depicting black love ― a subject that, despite being glaringly simple, was largely absent from the annals of art history.

In one 1992 painting, “Slow Dance,” a black couple slow dances together in their living room as music notes swirl around them. Marshall immortalizes this romantic moment, exceptional in its ordinariness, magical because it’s mundane. With his paintbrush, Marshall sought to normalize the banal elements of black life that are nearly always overlooked by art, film, and cultural representation. The basic gesture of depicting black couples hanging out was something revolutionary. 

Artist Leslie Barlow had Marshall on the mind when she embarked on her most recent series “Loving” in 2015. The mixed media paintings depict interracial couples based around the Minnesota area, where Barlow lives and works. The series takes its name from the landmark Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia, which celebrated its 50th anniversary this year. 

Fifty years feels wildly short when considering this is how long interracial marriage has been legal in the United States. And still, prejudice regarding interracial couples endured long past the Loving ruling. “I think a lot of people forget that there is this history of discrimination, and it didn’t just disappear when the Supreme Court banned anti-discrimination laws,” Barlow told The Huffington Post. “I wish that was the case, but racism is totally alive and well in this country.”

This inequity is painfully clear, for example, in the history of art, where oil paint has been used to tell certain kids of stories about certain kinds of people for centuries, leaving whole populations unrepresented and seemingly overlooked. “My work is about having agency over the representation of my story and stories like mine,” Barlow said. “It’s a sharing of experiences we don’t often see.” 

Barlow, who is mixed race, began making work that grappled with themes of race and identity while in graduate school. Her earlier work mainly depicted members of her immediate family, but with “Loving,” Barlow hoped to create equally personal works for a larger community.

In particular, she was interested in the local Minneapolis–Saint Paul population, which still lags behind most other U.S. states in terms of race and representation. “The lack of diversity in Minnesota did have an impact on my racial development and ideas of what was ‘normal,’” Barlow said. She resolved to illustrate interracial couples, still largely erased from the cultural archives, hoping the intimate depictions could steer viewers away from binary methods of thinking about race that operate primarily in terms of black and white. 

For the series, Barlow selected couples and families in the local vicinity, most of whom she knew through personal connections. “I wanted the paintings to meet these families where they are,” she said. She began by photographing her subjects in a space they felt comfortable ― whether at home or roaming the neighborhood. She then rendered the photographic images onto un-stretched canvasses or wooden panels, starting with acrylic underpainting and adding layers of oil paint and pastel. 

Barlow also experimented with sewing and collaging fabric onto the works, subtly alluding to the traditions of quilting and tapestry. “The quilt is a coming together of these disparate materials to make something beautiful, whole, uniquely its own thing,” she said. “It ends up being a metaphor for these people coming together to become one family. Quilts also bring up these ideas of domesticity and family, the warmth of that.”

Although the Loving case is the impetus for the series, the paintings themselves depict couples and families ― hanging out, cuddling, drinking a glass of wine ― just being, together. “I want each painting to be unique, but to also have this thing in common of feeling normal,” she said.The artist communicated with all of her subjects beforehand to agree on an environment and activity that represented their daily lives. “The paintings felt mundane in the best of ways. That’s what I want, to normalize these images.” 

Although race and identity have long been ideas central to Barlow’s artistic project, they are especially necessary right now, when racist and anti-immigrant rhetoric are becoming commonplace under President Trump’s administration. “I don’t shy away from my art being political,” Barlow said. “I do believe in the power of images and social change. I think, as an artist, it’s my duty to reflect the world and what’s going on within it. I feel it’s important I continue to push that.”

Leslie Barlow’s “Loving” is on view until March 25, 2017 at Public Functionary in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

14 Truths About Being An Asexual Person

What’s it like to be asexual in a world as sex obsessed as ours? It might help to understand what it means to be asexual first. 

Unlike celibacy ― where people give up sex as a choice ―asexuality is a sexual orientation, according to the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN). Asexual people have the same emotional needs as anyone and are just as capable of being in intimate relationships as other people ― they’re just not interested in sex. And being asexual categorically does not mean you’re lonely.

Below, men and women on the secret-sharing app Whisper talk about what it’s like to be asexual.

Tired of Being Tired? How to Re-Energize and Be Happy

You’re tired. You’re exhausted from the moment you get up in the morning. It feels like you’ve been plowing the field with a fork. You’re working too hard and not getting enough done. This can get a person down, especially during this busy season. Fatigue can trigger sadness and vice versa.

There’s hope! Short of a serious medical issue, there are several reasons for being tired that can be remedied with just a bit of effort. I’ll list them below and then offer seven simple solutions to help you get more energy and a positive outlook; a rejuvenated way to greet the New Year.

Emotions
Anxiety, depression, fear, grief from loss, stress and the feeling of lack control are all factors that may create a bio-chemical reaction (cortisol and other stress hormones) that if unregulated may wear a person down. With a new year you may be reflecting on the past year and come up with self-criticism and regret. Or you may be anxious about the future, your finances and/or your loved ones. Below are some suggestions on how to release some of the emotional weight so that you are not feeling so exhausted from carrying them.

Time does not heal all wounds but gives us the tools to endure them. ~ Singer Patti Smith’s father

Habits

  • Not enough sleep – Adequate sleep is needed to replenish our body and internal systems so that we are refreshed able to think and feel energized to deal with the day. Try to get at least seven hours of sleep and go to bed at about the same time each day.
  • Too much caffeine – feeling tired may trigger you to drink more caffeine and that becomes a cycle where the caffeine keeps you from getting quality sleep which promotes the desire to ingest more caffeine the next day and so forth.
  • Too much alcohol – taxes the body’s filtering systems, liver, kidneys and also changes the way one thinks and acts, all of which can be tiring.
  • Excessive junk food – empty calories makes the body crave for nutrients and also hinders the body’s absorption of the very nutrients that can replenish the body.

How to Re-Energize

  1. One of the most effective ways to feel less tired is to do something new, break out of your routine. Take a class, research a topic you’re interested in, ask for a new work project and/or develop a fresh hobby. Even small changes like walking up the stairs instead of taking the elevator or trying new food/cuisine may help. When monotony or a worry pattern sets in, it oftentimes drains our enthusiasm for life, which results in a feeling of fatigue.
  2. Physical Exercise. The positive endorphins that are created and released in the body from exercise make us feel good and less tired. Endorphins blocks pain receptors and also produce the same positive feelings in the body like morphine. Start or increase your exercise program; do something that is a slight stretch from your current state depending on your current activity level.
  3. Go outside. Being in nature is very healing and it can improve one’s mood. You can combine exercise with being in nature by going for a walk in a park or some other kind of outdoor activity.
  4. Connect with others. Human beings are social animals and we thrive when we have positive social interactions, particularly physical touch. Sharing your concerns with a trusted person may also result in assistance and solutions. Have a meal with others, hike with a friend, make an appointment for a massage, or combine three things that will make you feel better: do an outdoor physical activity with others, your body and moods will thank you for that.
  5. Reassess your priorities. Review the total demands on your time. Perhaps you have very valid reasons for being tired. If you have too much on your plate, decide which ones you can eliminate, delegate or postpone. Just the very act of assessing your commitments may help you relieve some of the tension and stress that comes from having too much to do. Prioritize your tasks based on what is important for you and let go of the ones that are just busy work.
  6. 6. Ask for help. Seek professional and/or spiritual guidance from qualified people if you have an emotional matter that you feel stymied by. Request for assistance to help you get some of your tasks done. If the work is needed, there will be others who can help get it done. Position your appeal as something that is for the common good.
  7. Ask for help from a spiritual source. The power of healing and rejuvenation that may come from a spiritual level has been well documented.

As you move into the New Year, know that you can choose different ways to improve your health and wellbeing. Just by acknowledging the possibility that you can be less tired, you have already started your journey. Here’s to your health, vitality and happiness!

Dallas Cowboys Fan Gets The Best Revenge After Being Dumped By Text

Four months after asking her to marry him, Brenna Clanton’s fiancé broke up with hervia text.

Unfortunately for the fiance, he missed out on an epic Christmas gift from Clanton: Two tickets to see the Dallas Cowboys’ home game against the Detroit Lions the day after Christmas.

Clanton, 30, took her best friend instead and brought a hilarious sign to spread the word about what happened. Here’s a pic posted by Alex McDaniel, an editor at the Oxford Eagle

“My fiance dumped me in a text message,” the Austin, Texas-based hairstylist wrote on the sign. “He should have waited until after Christmas. #nothingincommon” 

Unsurprisingly, the Internet (especially fellow Cowboys fans) loved Clanton’s “win some, lose some” attitude and her snazzy sign:

In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, Clanton explained why she brought the feather boa-lined sign.

Donald Trump Suits, Shirts and Ties, Being Sold at Deep Discounts Online

Get it before it’s gone. With the licenses for the apparel offerings of President-elect Donald Trump no longer active, there aren’t too many goods left in the market.
On the Trump Organization web site Wednesday, the Donald J. Trump Collection suits, dress shirts and neckwear are prominently displayed, along with an assortment of small leather goods, accessories and eyewear.
Clicking on the apparel tabs brings a potential customer to Amazon, where a two-piece windowpane suit is $ 156.74 and a two-button flat-front wool model is $ 114.99. Neckwear — including an extralong model — ranges from $ 59.50 to $ 85 while a Tattersall dress shirt is $ 26.26 and cufflinks are $ 29.95 to $ 40. All of the merchandise is being sold at a sharp discount.
The small leather-goods tab brings a shopper to a Van Heusen store locator page while the eyewear customer is brought to eyeglasses.com.
According to men’s wear sources, the three companies that had held the licenses for these products — PVH for dress shirts and neckwear, Randa for small leather goods and Peerless Clothing for tailored clothing — are no longer producing any merchandise under the Trump name. “When Terry Lundgren said he was done, everybody dumped the product and stopped making it,” said

These Feminist Artists Are Tired Of Being Told To Smile

The night was March 15, 2016. Hillary Clinton had just swept the primaries in Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, thus moving one step closer to becoming the next president of the United States of America; you know, the leader of the most powerful nation in the world.

And yet, despite the epic night in Clinton’s campaign, the main takeaway was: smile. 

Joe Scarborough’s casually misogynist tweet was not shocking or unusual, but just another unsolicited quip expressing what most women already know, that they’re first and foremost recognized as pretty faces — even when they’re about to govern the free world. 

When curator Jenny Mushkin-Goldman caught word of the incident, her first reaction was immediate disbelief. “That that degree of disrespect would be leveled toward, hopefully, our future president — it makes me angry,” she told The Huffington Post. “A man would never be asked to react that way.”

The patronizing nonsense Clinton was forced to endure on the day of her win is something many women face on their daily commutes. “I’ve lived in Manhattan for 15 years,” Mushkin-Goldman said, laughing with exasperation. “Just walking down the street, it’s so commonplace to hear catcalls like that. You’re going about your business, thinking about your day, and suddenly a man you do not know calls out at you to smile.”

The catcall is insidious, in part, because it can be well-intentioned — meant to be playful or complimentary. “They don’t realize how condescending it is,” Mushkin-Goldman said. “I’m not trying to blame individuals; it’s a societal problem. What’s underneath the statement is the idea a woman exists to perform, to entertain — for a man.”

So, as a grand middle finger to Scarborough, Brit Hume, that annoying dude on your walk home, and every man who ever felt the need to comment on a woman’s demeanor or decorum, Mushkin-Goldman organized an art show. It’s called, appropriately enough, “Smile!” The all-woman group show features feminist artists united by their valiant gumption, a refusal to create or perform — or, yes, smile nicely — for anyone other than themselves.

As Mushkin-Goldman put it: “My reaction to all of this is: ‘Yeah, I’ll smile, but, buddy, this is not for you. I smile because I want to smile, because I’m happy with myself.'”

The exhibit will soon take over New York’s Shin Gallery thanks to the enthusiasm of owner Hong Gyu Shin. “He wanted to do an all-female show,” Mushkin-Goldman said, “when I told him this idea he was immediately on board.” 

“Smile!” features six artists who care too much about their work to give a f**k about what you think. One such artist is Rebecca Goyette, who always appears to be having more fun than anyone else. Goyette is known for her feminist brand of absurd pornos, in which traditional tropes and gender roles are eschewed in favor of delicious weirdness, and in this case, lots of lobsters. 

In her short NSFW film “Lobstapus/Lobstapussy,” Goyette takes over an uninhibited Greek island as a hybrid human-lobster sex goddess, where she proceeds to make sweet, strange love to her crew of barnacle boys and girls. “She’s taking the traditional notion of female sexuality and turning it on its head,” Mushkin-Goldman said. “Goyette is putting a woman in charge, following her own desires, having a sexual adventure without shame.”

Goyette brazenly embodies the spirit of sex positivity that runs throughout the show, a frame of mind pioneered over 40 years ago by fellow “Smile!” artist Betty Tompkins. Tompkins is most well known for her “Fuck Paintings,” massive black-and-white reproductions of porn clippings zoomed in on the naughty parts, which she’s been creating since the 1970s.

For “Smile!” Tompkins contributed a series of “Word Paintings,” each image featuring crowdsourced words all too often used to describe women. Beginning in 2002, Tompkins invited women to participate in her project creating “images of women comprised of words.” Some of the final products include “c**t,” “honey,” “c**ksucker,” “slot,” “slut,” “basket case,” “hot tomato” and “amateur Latina p***y.”

Another iconic feminist artist, Deborah Kass, brings text-centric work to the show with her piece “C’Mon Get Happy,” quoting the 1970s “Partridge Family” theme song. The image combines cheery nostalgia with the more serious undertones of promises unfulfilled. “There’s this sense of darkness, a commentary about the failed promises of the 1950s,” Mushkin-Goldman said. “These beliefs that women can have it all, be super powerful business people and also wonder moms, that never came to be.” 

Two artists, Emily Noelle Lambert and Emily Weiskopf, channel a similar force of energy. Mushkin-Goldman describes Lambert’s art as an abstract response to Kass’ image, a sort of “jubilant punch in the sky.” Weiskopf’s “My Mona” is her take on Mona Lisa’s smile, transforming the iconic, coy grin into a geometric landscape of pink, red and fuchsia, the softness of the fleshy hues met with the cool harshness of straight parallel lines. 

One of the darker works in the show is a piece by Hyon Gyon, made specifically for the exhibition. “It is, in a sense, an altar. Basically the pedestal men put women on,” the curator explained. The throne has distinct tiers for first, second and third place, and comes complete with a set of chains, communicating the tension of being simultaneously elevated and restricted, placed on a pedestal with no ostensible mode of escape. 

However even Gyon’s work uses humor as a primarily vehicle for dissent and liberation. “I come from a Jewish background — so humor is essential to survival,” Mushkin-Goldman said. “We remain strong and positive through humor. It is crucial to remaining strong in the face of adversity.”

“Smile!” curated by Jenny Mushkin-Goldman, opens May 4 at Shin Gallery in New York.

On Being Found Unconscious in a Nevada Brothel

Now that it appears, thankfully, that former NBA player and Kardashian in-law, Lamar Odom, is going to be okay, we are free to banter about the preposterous serendipity of being found unconscious in, of all places, a licensed whorehouse tucked away on the remote and barren landscape of the Mojave Desert.

In addition to emitting a genuine sigh of relief at Odom’s recovery, coupled, admittedly, with a raised eyebrow and roll of the eyes at the whole string of indignities that had to accompany such a circumstance, we are also free to speculate as to who among us would pay the greatest “public relations” price for such notoriety.

Let us consider 10 stations in life and rank them accordingly. Here they are in descending order, with the person paying the steepest price listed first, and the person paying, arguably, no price at all (indeed, rising in stature as a result), listed last.

1. CLERGYMAN. It’s no contest. Despite prostitution being legal in parts of Nevada, no one who makes his living communing with God and offering spiritual counseling to the public is going to beat a seedy rap like this. Legal or not, his career is going to take an enormous hit. Unless his book is a bestseller, he’ll probably have to find a real job.

2. POLITICIAN. Ditto for an elected official, even one representing a district in Nevada. It’s bad enough visiting a brothel and paying strangers to have sex with you, but being so recklessly uninhibited that you allow yourself to black out, and have to be scraped off the floor by paramedics will likely render you “unelectable,” even as a Democrat.

3. CEO. It’s not the sex we object to, it’s the manner in which it was obtained. You run a company, you employee hundreds of people, and yet you can’t find a local woman to accommodate you? You have to schlepp all the way out to the desert to get relief? CEO’s should appear confident and resolute. This makes you appear needy.

4. DOCTOR. Not just any doctor. It has to be a cardiologist, neurosurgeon, psychiatrist or orthopedic surgeon, otherwise it won’t resonate. If you’re a podiatrist, proctologist or acne doctor, the obloquy will be minimal, and no one except your patients, fellow MD’s and attending nurses are likely to care.

5. ANCHOR MAN. It’s a job that requires presentation, steadiness, credibility and, dare I say, trust. Sorry, but you relinquish the whole package when you party yourself right into a coma.

6. MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER. You show up in a $ 3,000 suit and a $ 400 haircut, and charge $ 150,000 to address an audience on the topic of “Putting the Entrepreneurial Spirit to Work for You,” and then people read that you dropped $ 75,000 during a visit to a Nevada cathouse called the Love Ranch? You’ll bounce back, but it’s impossible to come away totally unscathed. Maybe lower your quote to $ 100,000.

7. AVANT GARDE ARTIST (poet, painter, sculptor). Fortunately, because people aren’t certain what you do in the first place, you will be given an inordinate amount of slack. If you were a construction worker or fry cook, they’d want to see you hang by your jimmy-whatnots, but given that you’re an existential poet, they’ll keep a respectful distance.

8. PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE. People, especially men, might wonder why you “have to pay for it,” but because you’re a celebrity jock the public will continue to judge you by what you do on the field, diamond or court, not what you do for recreation. Virtuoso athletic performance trumps almost everything.

9. ACTOR. Britain has its royal family, and America has its Hollywood actors. Unless it involves violence directed toward another person, we’re willing to forgive the most atrocious self-destructive behavior. Because we see them as creative geniuses, the normal rules don’t apply. It’s part envy, part admiration, part hero worship. We’re hooked.

10. ROCK STAR. Not only will his career not take a hit, but once word spreads and everyone learns what happened, he will become even more popular, more notorious. Imagine if it were Keith Richards (not now, but when he was younger). His reputation would not only have remained untarnished, it would’ve been sanctified.

Best of luck, Lamar. Seriously. Loved you with the Lakers. Get well, dude.

Justin Bieber Opens Up To Complex Magazine About Being Arrested

Justin Bieber is Complex magazine’s latest cover star.

The 21-year-old, who was photographed by David Black for the mag, opens up about everything from his infamous arrest in Miami to how he deals with all the critics. 

Speaking about that time he urinated in a bucket at a club, the Biebs said, “Honestly, I think the pissing in the bucket wasn’t as big as people made it seem. Just because, dude, think about it. Imagine, you hear that fucking Ozzy Osbourne pisses backstage. Immediately, ‘Oh, he’s a freaking rock star!’ As soon as I do it, ‘He’s being a brat.'” 

He continued, “Dude, what is bratty about pissing in a bucket? I had to go piss — we all have to pee.” He has a point — we all do have to pee, but at least most of us have the decency to do it in a restroom, even if said restroom is on the opposite side of where we are. 

The singer also called out the Miami police (who arrested and charged him for DUI and drag racing last year), saying, “they just wanted press.”

“I never was speeding; I never was drag racing … The cop supposedly wanted to be famous for arresting celebrities, and someone had heard him say that prior to that,” he said. “He was like, ‘Put your hands on the hood!’ I was like, what? I lifted my hands and I was like, ‘What do you mean, what’s going on?’ He was like, “I told you, put your hands on the hood! Now you’re under arrest for resisting arrest!'” 

“I felt it, dude. I was just like, Oh, they’re trying to get me right now at any cost. I went in, and I’m telling you, that 24 hours sucked. It was really cold. That was the worst part.” Poor Biebs.

Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: … TREASURE CHAPTER I THE WISE MAN AND THE FOOt THERE is no justification for the idea that cousins ought to have similar tastes and aspirations any more than that they ought to be alike in form and feature. And yet when people were told that George Harvey and Thomas Ewins were cousins they would generally say: "What! Those two cousins! Well! Who would have thought it!" Certainly the cousins had a few things in common: they had no other near relatives and they lived together, sharing the same joint, the same dish of vegetables, the same pudding, the same loaf, the same domestic et ceteras, provided by Mrs. Bowers. They did not, however, share the same philosophy. They did not often discuss it–as philosophy. But every now and then they raised voices in scorn, each finely overflowing with contempt for the other. They had both had to make their way in life as they had been left fatherless at a tender age, and had sown and reaped for themselves almost from the early teens. Harvey was a printer and for some few years past had managed the business formerly belonging to Edward Gollam, but now the sole property of his sorrowful and not well-to-do widow. When Mr. Gollam died and left his widow with four girls and a printing business, Ewins told his cousin to ask for a partnership, or start printing on his own account. But Mrs. Gollam wondered so pathetically how she "could manage with four girls; if one had been a boy it would have been different, particularly if he had been old enough to step in his father's shoes, but girls . . . and how could she manage a business that she knew nothing of?" And when a woman (or man for that matter) looked pathetically helpless George Harvey was always touched. It was quite true that George Harvey might have made…

Being Calm and Mindful for Your Child

The school year is just starting all over the country; children will be encountering new teachers, higher expectations, peers who may have grown or matured in varying degrees over the summer, and changing alliances among those peers. Your child may face a calm re-entry to the school year, or may be distressed to find himself in very unfamiliar, and unhappy, territory. Your child may look to you for comfort and support; how are you going to handle your role?

While every parent wants his or her child to be happy, successful, and well-liked, we don’t always get our wish. If your child is the one who comes home with a long face and teary eyes, be prepared to offer assistance that will build his skill-set and improve his level of resilience; comfort him, and help him search for what will help him the most. This would NOT mean providing solutions and answers, but helping him discover those solutions and answers on his own.

If your child is upset over a school issue, do not become overemotional about the issue.

  • Stop and think: What else could be true? What might my child have left out of the story (intentionally or unintentionally)? Do not relate this situation to one that involved you when you were young. Realize this is a completely new situation that involves your child, not you.
  • Ask questions. Exactly what happened? What were the responses? What did you say? How did you say it? How do you think it sounded/seemed to the other purple involved? What led up to the situation?
  • Who else was there? Was there someone you could have asked for help about this at the time? Is this a big deal, or just a little something that happened? Is this worth worrying about, or could it be forgotten so tomorrow can be a fresh start?
  • If someone says something about this incident tomorrow, how can your child respond that is neither unkind nor sarcastic to anyone, but treats the situation as no big deal so things don’t have to get out of hand?
  • Is there an adult at school to whom your child could speak about this privately? Is there a teacher, counselor, administrator, or nurse who he trusts to keep a confidence, and give good advice?
  • What can your child try, on his own, to solve this problem? What could be done differently next time? Or, with whom can your child spend his time instead of with that person(s)?
  • Responding calmly to events that involve neither hurt nor intimidation, nor danger of any kind, lets your child know that not every issue needs to be treated like a major catastrophe. Sometimes things just don’t go our way; we can learn to accept this gracefully, and then move on to the next event.

If situations are reoccurring for your child, it may be advisable for you, as the adult, to speak confidentially to a teacher or counselor. Ask if they are aware of the event. Ask if they feel you need to be involved, or how they can help your child move forward. The object is to avoid over-parenting, a pattern that can compromise children’s autonomy, mastery, and personal growth. Rather, help your child grow into a competent, kind, resourceful person who has the resilience to survive the tough times.

Good luck; let me know how it goes.

Being in Love

I want to feel joy for joy’s sake
Not wanting to earn it
Or reach it
Or arrive finally at its door
After working
And seeking
After years of wracking pursuit, falling at the threshold
Begging for mercy and entry and somewhere to rest and sleep in peace.

No.

I want to awaken there
Dancing on the head of that pin
Smiling in my sleep
And rising to a peppy dawn
I want to jump up in inspiration for the new day
I want to take pen to paper
And explode upon the page,
my existence on this planet
At this time, at this place, in this body, with this mind, and countenance, and spirit and soul
With these eyeballs, and ears, and fingers, and taste buds, and ability to experience aromas, exotic and sublime, miraculously breathing in and out, and in and out again.

I want my moments of being alive to be a celebration of the moments I get to be alive
Love the people I get to love
Feel the love of those whose energy, flow, willingness for interbeing, makes me somehow feel loved, too.

I want to bathe in child-like wonder
For innocent experience, naked awareness, clear seeing
Present a truer reality
A realization longstanding
A wisdom
Transcendent of deluded mind, frightened mind, ego mind, hurt-child mind
To original mind, mirror-like
and free
I stand, reflecting awe, embracing mystery, curious, openhearted, immersed in the now and loving the opportunity to be in love with this very life.

This is an excerpt from Essence magazine’s September 2015 cover story “Stepping Up” about American Ballet Theatre ballerina Misty Copeland. The article was written by Julee Wilson, senior fashion editor at The Huffington Post. 

“…One of Copeland’s most endearing qualities, beyond dancing on her toes and making it look easy, is the fact that she’s so unapologetically Black. ‘It’s easy for someone who isn’t Black or other or who has never experienced racism to dismiss what I’m saying…it’s easier for them to say, ‘Why do you focus so much on that? You’re a beautiful dancer.’ But the reason I’m here and I have this voice is because I’m Black.’ Copeland tells me that she has never tried to pretend that ballet doesn’t have a race problem. She recounts times fellow dancers told her that some American Ballet Theatre (ABT) staff members were overheard saying, ‘Misty stands out too much because of her skin color.’ With that said, Copeland’s singular mission is changing the landscape of ballet by promoting Project Plié, an initiative launched in September 2013 by ABT with Copeland on the advisory board to increase racial and ethnic representation at ballet companies around the country. Copeland also mentors several dancers on the rise. At the moment she has more than a dozen mentees (including identical twin brothers Naazir and Shaakir Muhammad, who are currently standout students at the School of ABT). ‘I’m going to continue to be who I am and my experiences as a Black woman have made me who I am. All of a sudden now that I’m in this position, I’m not going to say, ‘I’m just a dancer.’ It’s a huge deal because I’m a Black woman. That’s why it’s a big deal…”

Help Your Child Make Friends By Being Irresistibly Awesome

Are playdates a time for you to kick back and relax while your child is finally, blessedly, occupied? Don’t let yourself off the hook that easily, you slacker. Don’t you know your kid’s popularity and self-esteem are riding entirely on your ability to be the hook that draws friends back to your house as easily as dirt is drawn to your stupid beige carpeting? Anyway, here are some tried and true ways to be That Mom that kids whisper about, and not just because you forgot to take off your whitening strips and talked with a lisp at pickup.

1. Hover.

Every minute that your kid and his friend play on their own is another minute that can’t be spent on papier mache masks of dinosaurs. I mean, he SAID his friend liked dinosaurs. Look, you can use the popsicle sticks to make skull crests. Expert tip: The older the kids are, the more they like papier mache.

2. Reminisce.

You used to play Barbie too! You had the Dream House and you would make Ken pick Barbie up there to take her to prom. Other times, you would make Barbie and Ken into parents and Skipper was their sassy teenage daughter. You think you actually have some photos of you playing Barbie, if everyone wants to join you in the attic with the albums. It’ll just take a sec.

3. Tell funny jokes.

Expert tip: Teenagers secretly like really corny knock knock jokes. Make sure to have at least 50 at your disposal. If they aren’t laughing by joke #10, bring out the ones that involve puns. Oh wait, that’s all of them!

4. Fit in.

If they’re playing dress up, you play dress up. If they’re playing rock band, you play rock band. If they’re giggling about boys they like in school, in the privacy of your daughter’s room, use a cleverly secreted baby monitor to pick up on their conversation, and yell loudly upstairs: “Josh is definitely cuter!” Total bonding moment.

5. Provide snacks.

Endless snacks. Every time they try to leave, give them something else to eat. Preferably filled with sugar and food coloring. Nothing says, “I’m going to drop my kid off here every afternoon” to parents like a kid stuffed with cookies and Pixie Stix an hour before dinner. Bam, you’ve made your kid a best friend.

6. Buy them stuff.

To really make a hit, buy your kid’s friend something really expensive and/or something you already know he’s getting for his birthday from his parents. Don’t worry, he doesn’t look uncomfortable, he looks grateful.

7. The more the merrier.

Host your book club at the same time as your teenage son has a friend over to play video games. When Martha starts crying about her divorce again, as she’s wont to do after too many sangrias, ask your son’s friend if he agrees that a beautiful woman like Martha will meet a new guy in no time, and one that isn’t a narcissistic controlling jerk. Relatedly…

8. Ask them for advice.

Your daughter’s friend has excellent fashion taste. What would she like more than telling you which of your jeans from ten years ago make you look svelte and which make you look dowdy? It’s fun for everyone. Make sure to tell her that the only reason you gained those extra pounds was comfort eating during that rough patch in your marriage a couple years ago. She’s very wise for a 7-year-old.

9. Invite their parents.

When your child’s friend’s mom excitedly confirms, “This is drop off right? So convenient because you live right by Ikea, and — ” make sure to cut her off and invite her for coffee and homemade pie. Don’t be shy to tell her how you found a special recipe on Pinterest for just this occasion and threw out two pies that came out wrong before this one. It’s so cute when moms and their kids are all friends together.

10. Invite them yourself.

If for some reason, you’ve tried all of the above tactics, and your poor, socially inept child has ended up with fewer friends visiting the house rather than more, don’t lose heart. Reach out to your kids’ friends yourself, via social media, text or, even better, handwritten notes. Don’t let your child become friendless on your watch. And your wedding video isn’t going to watch itself!

After Being Denied 73 Years Ago, 92-Year-Old Black Woman Finally Receives Her Library Card

Ninety-two-year-old Pearl Thompson was a student at Shaw University in 1942 when she attempted to check out a book from the Olivia Raney Library in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her school, which is an HBCU, didn’t carry the book she needed for a history class so she visited the local library. According to her daughter, Deborah Thompson, Pearl was denied a library card because she was black, so instead, she was sent to the building’s basement to read the book.

“I expected to go in and get a book,” Pearl told News & Observer.

Seventy-three years later, Pearl returned to Raleigh with her daughter and granddaughter and finally got her library card.

“She was fighting good health but she was determined to make this trip,” Deborah told HuffPost. She said Pearl is currently battling kidney disease and suffers from heart issues — but she wouldn’t let that stop her.

The Olivia Raney Library was the city’s first public library and later became a part of the larger Wake County Public Library system. In the 1960’s, it merged with Richard B. Harrison Library — a library Deborah said Pearl helped to launch — which only served blacks at the time. The Olivia Raney Library, which is now closed, serves as a local history library and the administration at Cameron Village Library, which opened right after Olivia Raney Library closed, held a ceremony in Pearl’s honor last week.

“We all felt that the presentation of Mrs. Thompson’s library card needed to be honored with a ceremony and we also wanted the opportunity to rectify a mistake of the past,” Ann Burlingame, deputy director of Wake County Public Libraries, told The Huffington Post on Tuesday.

After college, Pearl, who has always been an advocate for education, went on to become a teacher in Raleigh for nearly fifty years.

“I was determined that when I became a teacher every child would have an opportunity to learn to read,” Pearl said at the ceremony. “A little boy [had] Down’s syndrome and they said he would never learn to read. And I taught him to read. Even to the point he wrote books himself.”

Thompson moved to Ohio with her husband after 12 years as a teacher in Raleigh, and she now lives in Cincinnati where she taught for 37 years. Decades after her days in college, she said she doesn’t hold a grudge against the library and their poor treatment.

“I don’t hold any kind of hate in my heart, because that doesn’t do it,” she said. “That doesn’t get you there.”
