Dwayne Johnson’s Daughter Jasmine Compliments His ‘Brown Boobies’ During Swimming Lesson

Kids say the darndest things — just ask Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson!

While spending a quiet weekend at home with his family, the 46-year-old Skyscraper actor got an interesting compliment from his daughter Jasmine Lia, 2, during their swimming lesson.

“Great to recharge the batteries this weekend, back home with all my girls and teaching this lil’ tornado how to swim,” the doting dad wrote alongside a photo of himself and his daughter in the pool.

“Took my shirt off and she said, Daddy I like it your brown boobies.. 😂🤔 Thank you baby, but daddy has pecs, not boobies,” he wrote, adding the humorous hashtag, “#MrBrownBoobs.”

Earlier this month, Johnson opened up about what it was like to watch his longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian give birth to their second child together, 2-month-old daughter Tiana Gia.

“I will say, it was the most amazing experience I’ve ever seen,” Johnson said during a visit to Live with Kelly and Ryan. “I look at Lauren, and women and mothers, in a different light than I ever have before. And it was beautiful.”

“I was encouraging her — holding her hand. And the doctor said, ‘Would you like to come down and watch and help?’ ” Johnson recalled. “I said, ‘Yup, I’m going to come down. Watch. Help.’ ”

“I’m holding legs, everything. And out comes the baby,” he continued, joking, “I know, right? Crazy. ‘Cause you roll the dice. You don’t know how it’s going go to go. A lot of stuff happens.”

The former wrestling star announced Tiana’s arrival in late April with a sweet skin-to-skin photo of the newborn laying on his chest, calling Hashian a “true rockstar” in the post’s caption.

“I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there,” he wrote.

He added: “Word to the wise gentlemen: it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can… holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer — watch your child being born. Its a life-changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman will forever be boundless.”

Gwyneth Paltrow Reflects on Relationship with ex Ben Affleck: ‘He Was Very Much a Lesson’

Gwyneth Paltrow is dishing on a former — and very famous — ex of hers.

The Oscar winner, who’s now engaged to Brad Falchuk, was asked about her relationship to ex Ben Affleck while speaking to Howard Stern on his SiriumXM radio show on Wednesday.

“How did you know not to marry him? You were never in love with him,” Stern asked of Affleck, who Paltrow dated on-and-off from 1997 to 2000.

“It’s interesting, I think there’s certain boyfriends where you are trying to work stuff out, right?” she replied. “Like, you’re trying to heal certain stuff from your childhood and he was very much a lesson in that way”

“I’m not sure exactly what I was trying to heal in that instance, but it was…he was, you know, it was specific,” the 45-year-old continued.

This doesn’t mark the first time the actress has opened up to Stern about the Justice League star. In 2015, she told the comedian on his podcast that Affleck “was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend” at the time.” She said her parents “were OK with the two of us not being together,” although they “appreciated how he’s super intelligent.”

During Wednesday’s chat, Paltrow also let it slip that she and Falchuk aren’t planning on having children together.

“This is his second marriage … Neither of us wants more kids,” the mother of two said.

“We’re on the same team,” Paltrow added.

Paltrow shares son Moses Bruce Anthony, 12, and daughter Apple Blythe Alison, 14, with her consciously uncoupled-from ex-husband Chris Martin. Falchuk shares son Brody and daughter Isabella with ex-wife Suzanne Bukinik, whom he was married to for 10 years before filing for divorce in March 2013.

Why Sharing Your Struggles Actually Makes You Stronger: A Lesson From Terry Crews

I was coming home after dropping off my daughter at school and heard Terry Crews being interviewed on the radio. I knew he was an actor on Brooklyn Nine Nine, (I have never watched but my hubby and son love it). I knew he was a comedian and the cool Old Spice guy. Other than that I didn’t know much about him.The DJ introduced Terry by listing all of the projects Terry is involved with these days. The DJ asked how he had time to be involved with so many projects.

Terry said, “I am going to be completely honest, I used to be addicted to porn. Addiction takes a lot of time.” He explained that now that he’s not addicted to porn, he has time to do productive and fulfilling things. He went on to talk about all of his failures. He said no one had failed more than him, and that is why he succeeds now. Terry said that people are living way to safe and you can’t be scared of being you. Take risks.

He was so authentic and real. He talked about his addiction to porn almost cost him his marriage. All of this at 8:00 0.a.m on a morning radio station! They kept trying to make jokes about porn addiction and he kept being real. He did not let them make light of it, regardless how hard they tried.

One minute into his interview, I wanted to know everything about him.I was not expecting to hear this kind of raw truth during a morning radio show interview, with a comedian of all people. It was so refreshing! I was instantly drawn to him. I felt better about myself. I have been feeling like a bit of a failure lately. Somehow his truth let me know I was going to be OK, because he was.

You don’t hear many celebrities being honest about their failures, daily challenges or addictions. Reality is a bit skewed these days. Facebook and social media have become a place of posting about your kids amazing accomplishments, your perfectly cooked risotto at the hottest restaurant in town or your latest vacation to a tropical island. It focuses on mostly our accomplishments and how great our lives are. Those things are all great, and there is another side of real life that is not always so shiny and glittery.

On the other hand we can have really hard days, most of us struggle with something. Yet we don’t talk about our struggles or challenges. We don’t share our hardships. That would make us weak. That might push people away. We question — would my friends still love me if they new my inner struggles and weaknesses? You generally don’t see people post, “Just got back from marriage counseling, it was a hard but productive session”. You don’t see mom post a picture of her baby screaming it’s head off a with the caption, “Today I hate being a mom”. We don’t tell the mom at the park, “I screamed at my 3 year old today and I scared myself”.

Even though these are realities, people prefer to only show the happy shiny facade.
We are afraid to share our failures. Why? It seems like we feel if we post about our amazing lives people will be drawn to us and like us more. We will feel validated that we are important and people will love us. Ironically I have found the exact opposite to be true. We need to be real, raw, authentic. People want to connect and we all have baggage, struggles, weaknesses.

I have made a conscious decision over the past year to live and share my authentic life, warts, failures and all. Maybe that feels gutsy but the payoff is worth it to me. I am who I am. Sure I can glamorize the good stuff and brush the bad stuff under the rug, but that’s not real life. Ironically, I have found that when I share my hardships with raising a daughter with bipolar disorder, or how I have been in marriage counseling for 1 ½ years, people lean in. They open up to me about their lives.

I am blown away by how many friends/clients I have that also have bipolar disorder and have never told anyone. They talk to me about their original struggles with it and how they are living awesome productive lives now. They tell me not give up and it will get better. They check in on me. If I didn’t share, I would feel so alone, so isolated. I am supported because I share. I am not alone because I share. It is so freeing when you share your truth and your friends and family still love you. You don’t have to feel like a liar or a failure. You can’t fail when you are you.

I encourage everyone to embrace who you are. Learn from Terry Crews. We don’t need to feel guilt or shame from our failures, we need to embrace them, share them and move on from them. Celebrate the good stuff and don’t be afraid to share your struggles. You will be amazed at the doors it opens and the support it brings.

Ashley Graham’s Ted Talk Is A Lesson In Body Acceptance

Ashley Graham, body activist, model, lingerie designer and all-around beautiful human, is taking her message of body love and acceptance on the road.

The co-founder of ALDA (a coalition of plus-size models) participated in a TEDx Talk in Valencia, Spain, on April 25, where she got real with a sold-out audience of 450 people.

Admiring the parts of her body some might consider “flaws” in a mirror (“Thick thighs, you’re so sexy you can’t stop rubbing each other,” she joked), Graham shares her story, from her early days of plus-size modeling to her current status as a five-time magazine cover star and pioneer in the fight toward self love for all women.

ashley graham

Graham acknowledges that she, like so many other women, has dealt with a lack of confidence. “I would go home and look in the mirror and hate what I saw,” she said. But learning to face her insecurities head-on is what allowed her to take back control of her body:

“I felt free, once I realized i was never going to fit the narrow mold that society wanted me to fit in. I was never going to be perfect enough for an industry that defines perfection from the outside in, and that’s okay.”

It certainly is. Check out the moving video above.

Life Lesson: Embrace the Journey

The paths in life are many, but depending on where you live (both figuratively and literally), you may have more specific destinations (goals). This focused view can help, as you try to map out all the ways to get there. But then life happens, and you are thrown off course. When this occurs, can you roll with it or will you stall (struggle)?

This point was driven home on a recent meet-up with an old friend. It was like any other Thursday. Our rendezvous point: Long Beach, California. And if L.A. traffic had anything to say, the stop and go (ups & downs) was just the start.

First, he was held up at work (responsibilities), so we pushed our get-together back, and even though I was en route, something told me (intuition) to flip around and head home instead. I came in for a pit stop and re-fueled with some healthy greens and made my way back out. This time I took Pacific Coast Highway, trusting that my GPS would get me there with ease (expectations). Not quite. Because I wasn’t able to pay full attention while driving, I missed a few signs (obstacles). But the unexpected didn’t stop there. Suddenly, without a clear entry in sight, I noticed that I drove right past the restaurant (challenges). I even pulled over on two occasions to ask the people directing traffic, “How do I get back on track (support)?” Still I was led astray (setbacks).

Finally, I saw a parking structure (blessings) and pulled in to discover it was completely full (false alarms)! On my way out, yet again, I asked the guy how I could find my way, only to not understand a word, due to his thick accent (confusion).

So I took matters into my own hands (control), and decided to follow the orange cones (guideposts), and found myself driving through the sand (surprises)! At least it was alongside a dazzling beach (beauty)! — I was lost in the moment (pun intended).

2015-05-15-1431658481-9551441-orangecones.JPG

Recognizing I was lost, I called my friend (initiative). He was equally surprised and perplexed as to what was going on, so he suggested finding me first (self-discovery) and then we could take it from there (process). He pulled aside and I followed behind him (teachers) as he steered aimlessly around Long Beach (the unknown) in search of familiar surroundings (experiences) and a new connection point (opportunities). However, our often abrupt and sudden turns (risks), required much focus (clarity), with no set roads to follow (uncertainty), and continued adjustments (resilience), until a way was shown (faith).

At last, and boy was I glad I ate first (reflection), we stumbled upon (fortune) a lovely restaurant situated along the beach, with a stunning view, and a quiet place to just be (relaxation) and have a heart to heart (profound connection). I couldn’t have imagined a better outcome (perspective). Truly, only life can orchestrate such an incredible journey (fulfillment)! What an adventure!

2015-05-15-1431658900-9741674-longbeach.JPG

Oh, and it turns out the annual Long Beach Grand Prix was taking place (destiny) and our detours (choices) led us exactly to where we were meant to be!

I leave you with this single question: How do you choose to navigate in your journey of life?

Today’s Lesson

2015-05-07-1431020507-1761518-thinking.jpg

Today, like every other day, is more than likely going to present you with an opportunity to expand your consciousness. You probably will not recognize it immediately as it is happening. For instance, you receive a phone call that delays you or even ruins your plans for the day altogether, or you unexpectedly encounter a stranger who could use some help, or maybe your feelings get terribly hurt by someone close to you… whatever the situation, the question should always be the same: “What am I being taught today? Patience? Surrender? Forgiveness? Gratitude? Self-Worth? Humility? Compassion?” You will undoubtedly find that there are underlying themes in your life that show up in many different forms. Understanding this allows you to be centered in the midst of perceived chaos.

So, will you get today’s lesson, or will you have to repeat it? The key to this is to take a step back and recognize the purpose of the scenario that is occurring right in front of you; awareness is 90 percent of getting beyond it. Let the energy that the situation makes you feel pass through you instead of storing it down deep inside to deal with at a later time, because each time you experience it, there will be more of that energy needing to be released, so it will only get harder. You will feel this energy because it will throw you off balance. Every time a lesson is presented, it is a chance to get rid of negative energy that has been pushed down and internalized and is now stuck inside of you. The Universe throws a pebble, a rock, a stone, a boulder, then the whole mountain at you to get your attention, so the sooner you get the lesson, the better!

If you choose to learn what your consciousness is teaching you — because it really is a choice — and you don’t want to feel like you’re Bill Murray in the movie “Groundhog Day,” then take note of these three ways to gain awareness and remain cool, calm, and centered no matter what happens today:

1) Be the Audience

Our lives are like soap operas, hopefully not that melodramatic, but a lot of the time it feels that way. From day to day, we have little or no idea what the heck is going to transpire; we simply try to cope with things as they come. However, I cannot emphasize strongly enough the importance of NOT getting pulled in — by this, I mean giving your power away to anything or anyone. The moment you do that, the situation you are in has just gained control of your emotions. You are no longer the master of your own life, you are the pawn.

Realize that situations are brought to you and dumped in your lap for a reason; this is not random. Therefore, instead of jumping right in, as usual, head first without looking, observe. Watch it unfold. Who are the players? What are they doing? Have they done this before? Probably. Where do you fit into all of this? Do you need to be a part of it? Is this really about being patient or accepting or possibly something else? What could happen differently this time so that today is the last time this is brought to you? Be an audience member during a performance of the latest “trauma drama,” not one of the actors, and you will be amazed at how much less dramatic your life becomes.

2) Feel the Feeling

We’ve all been embarrassed at some point or another or felt left out or maybe that we just weren’t important or loved. Scenarios that bring up these types of feelings are typically commentaries on our self-worth. Whatever the underlying theme, there is a resistance we have built up in order to avoid the pain. That wall we use to protect ourselves gets higher and wider every time we get hurt. The only way to break down our walls is to recognize that these unpleasant feelings bring to our attention limitations we have placed upon ourselves: “I’m not good enough,” “I don’t deserve to be loved,” I’m stupid.” When you become aware of what is really going on, relax and smile. Take hold of your personal power and do not give it away. You are the master of your thoughts and emotions; they are a choice. You choose them, don’t allow someone else to do it. When you remain in control and don’t fall victim to the same scenario, these hurtful moments will be history.

3) See the Gift

Gifts are not always fun to receive, nor are they always wrapped up in neat little packages; they can be messy and uncomfortable. However, these are the greatest gifts of all because they are life-changers. They may look like nothing you could ever want at the time, but I guarantee you, the amount of positive energy and blessings that those gifts have the power to bring into our lives is boundless if we can just accept them graciously and say, “Thank you.” Recognize that gifts come in all shapes and sizes, but you have to be willing to see their true form. Everything is a gift.

Don’t go through life blindly, living the same day over and over and over again. It is sad that so many people do this until the entire mountain comes crashing down on top of them. Be open to the lesson in this moment and move on. Your life will be so much happier, easier, and fuller because of it.

Art and Money: A Lesson From the Borgias

Periodically we hear the anguished voices of sensitive aesthetes lamenting the deplorable and degraded state of contemporary art. These ascetic sophisticates often blame the prominence of Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, and Takashi Murakami on the corruption produced by the vast, even unprecedented economic power of a few wealthy dealers (Larry Gagosian) and collectors (Steven Cohen) in the market for art.

The proposition that money corrupts art is absurd, and the contention that the link between the two is anything new is simply ignorant. Clement Greenberg long ago observed that advanced art has always been attached to society’s ruling class by an umbilical cord of gold; I have previously written about how strong this tie was in the Renaissance.

But a current exhibition illustrates an even more powerful point. As every admirer of Orson Welles knows, in one of his most famous speeches – as Harry Lime in The Third Man – Welles pointed out that Italy under the Borgias was plagued by warfare, terror, and murder, and produced Leonardo, Michelangelo, and the Renaissance. “Les Borgias et Leur Temps” at Paris’ Musée Maillol forcefully documents what Welles remarked. In this elegant setting, the very faces of the evil dynasty of the Borgias gaze at us as they were seen by the greatest artists in the Western canon. Among its masterpieces, the exhibition includes a magisterial Titian portrait of Pope Alexander VI, a powerful Raphael portrait of Pope Paul III, and a wonderfully delicate Leonardo study of Cesare Borgia.

The power and wealth of the Borgias were potent disinfectants: these images show us honest, sincere, and devout servants of the Church, with no hint of the sadistic and perverted assassins and lechers they were in reality. Our knowledge of the true history of the Borgias allows us to recognize that their evil and corruption were no bar to making their countenances the basis for inspirational and moving works of artistic genius. Not only does money not corrupt art: even blood money doesn’t corrupt art. Nor is this surprising. The Borgias had real power in the market for art: Leonardo, Raphael, and Titian would not have considered declining their commissions, for the consequences of doing this could have been more than merely financial. Larry Gagosian and Steven Cohen can only dream of having power of this kind.

“Les Borgias et Leur Temps” reminds us that today’s market for art is far more competitive, and far more transparent, than in the past. And it demonstrates beyond any doubt that even an extremely high degree of power among its purchasers does not corrupt art. But Orson Welles knew that all along.

Q-Tip Offers Iggy Azalea A Hip Hop History Lesson, T.I. & Azealia Banks Respond

A brewing battle between Iggy Azalea and fellow industry artists has found the Australian-born rapper in hot water, yet again.

Following a series of tweets responding to rapper Azealia Banks candid Hot 97 interview where she expressed her much-publicized issues with Iggy, “hacktavist” group Anonymous threatened to release “snapshots” from an alleged sex tape featuring the chart-topper if she didn’t issue an apology for her comments to Banks.

As if that wasn’t enough, veteran MC-musician Q-Tip took to his personal Twitter account on Saturday to give Iggy, and his more than 700,000 followers, a history lesson on the origins of Hip Hop and its connection to sociopolitical movements. Here’s what he wrote:

“HipHop is a artistic and socio-political movement/culture that sprang from the disparate ghettos of NY in the early 70’s Coming off the heels of the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT and approaching the end of the Vietnam war it was a crossroads 4 America specially for blacks in the US our neighborhoods were PROLIFERATED w/a rush of HEROINE.”

“Our school systems here in NY dungeon traps with light for learning… blk men some of whom didn’t return from tours of duty n the ones who did came w/war baggage (agent orange, addiction, ect..)… these men had families but due to these events and throw into the mix the public emasculation… they proved to be handicapped parents. The surrogate parents? The STREETS… the streets of gangs, crimes, and the hustlers coddled us and swept us up.”

“But! Being a spirited, rhythmic & expressive people music art dance outlined our existence… it proved a way for us to exhault to scream to dance to laugh and find OUR VOICE… we weren’t at the time skilled musicians as kids. We had records, turntables, ideas and INGENUITY being natural chemist we took from whatever was availed to us and we created something mighty and special.”

“We cut breakbeats back n forth we took a hybrid of Jamaican toasting along w/ radio jock rap( hank Spann, Gary Byrd, ect.) and we put our rap down.. it was a neighborhood thing really. Black and Latino Kids were carving out their space and it became infectious… eventually Keith Cowboy coined the phrase hiphop . Yrs later the first rap record was recorded and now we r moving.”

“But during these strides this country still had the monster of racism and racial insensitivity breathing and ruling… believe it or not young black n Latino lives specifically weren’t acknowledged in mainstream American culture unless Of course.. the convo was abt gangs , being criminals or uneducated. And hey! Like I stated early our families were rushed our schools sucked and we were left to put devices to survive… but HIPHOP showed that we had DEPTH, fire, and BRILLANCE… the music was undeniable! It moved from NY N became national and even GLOBAL.”

“Hiphop now was FOR EVERYBODY!! All of those who cld relate to the roots, the spirit, the history, the energy.. It reached YOU… it touched your spirit n took u up. We magnetized you! That’s what BRILLANCE does… now u are fulfilling your dreams … BUT! you have to take into account the HISTORY as you move underneath the banner of hiphop. As I said before… hiphop is fun it’s vile it’s dance it’s traditional it’s light hearted but 1 thing it can never detach itself from is being a SOCIO-Political movement.”

“U may ask why … Well once you are born black your existence I believe is joined with socio-political epitaph and philos based on the tangled and treacherous history SLAVERY alone this is the case it never leaves our conversation… Ever. WeAther in our universities our dinner tables our studios or jail cells… the effects still resononates with us. It hurts… We get emotional and angry and melancholy… did u know president Clinton was the ONLY PRESIDENT to apologize for it? did u know that remnants of slavery exist today thru white privilege? When certain “niceties” r extended your way because of how u look? Isn’t that crazy?”

“I say this 2 say u are a hiphop artist who has the right 2 express herself however she wishes… this is not a chastisement this is not admonishment at ALL this is just one artist reaching to another hoping to spark insight into the field you r in. I say this in the spirit of a hopeful healthy dialogue that maybe one day we can continue… I’ve been on twitter a long time and this will probably be my last series of tweets pretty much but I’m Kool with it as long as I got to share this w u. Zzzzzzz’s up! Peace!”

Following Q-Tip’s 40-plus tweets, Iggy’s label boss, T.I. also decided to jump in to share his thoughts by tweeting a followup response.



And, as expected, Azealia Banks – who has previously had a public feud with T.I. before, too — responded to the rapper’s remarks.

Jasmine Guy On The Big Lesson She Learned After Stardom (VIDEO)

Though most people remember her as Whitley Gilbert, the southern belle on “A Different World,” actress Jasmine Guy has had an incredibly versatile career as an artist. A professional dancer and choreographer, Guy got her start performing in New York at Alvin Ailey. She went on to appear in films like Spike Lee’s “School Daze,” the TV series “Fame,” and released her own self-titled R&B album in 1990.

“I kind of looked at life like graduating from high school. Once you did [one thing], you move to the next level — and that ain’t always the case,” Guy says in her recent interview for Oprah.com’s new web series, “Who Am I.”

“My biggest lesson in my life has been learning how to live in between the gigs,” she says. “I understand my own fragility, and I don’t take that for granted anymore.”

Also in the interview, Guy talks about raising her daughter, Imani, to have her own individuality. “I started to pray, ‘God, please just don’t let me get in the way of who she is supposed to be,'” Guy says.

Now that Imani is a teenager, things have become all the more complicated. “Actually having another woman mind to talk to and relate to — and try to get to clean the bathroom — is a little tricky,” she says.

Guy reunites with the cast of “A Different World” on “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airing Sunday, October 5 at 9 p.m. ET on OWN. Find more “Who Am I” videos on Oprah.com.

Remembering Debbie Ford: Author Shares Major Lesson Learned From Cancer (VIDEO)

When the late Debbie Ford was diagnosed with cancer, she kept it a guarded secret for 11 years. In 2012, the Courage author revealed her diagnosis on an episode of OWN’s “Super Soul Sunday,” telling Oprah that she spent a long time in denial — even after doctors removed a five-pound tumor from her body.

Ford finally came to terms with her diagnosis and began to understand that she knew nothing of true courage until she battled cancer.

“What I would say to anybody facing any life challenge or disease is that that is courage — to choose life, to keep looking at what’s good,” Ford said

For Ford, having a supportive friend made a big difference in her outlook. “Cheryl Richardson used to send me texts every day, ‘Just believe that I believe,'” Ford told Oprah. “I would call her crying, ‘I lost my faith.'”

Even in the darkest moments, Ford found that courage could emerge. “We just have to make it a choice. We have to choose faith even if we don’t feel it,” Ford says. “Or hold on to a friend who has faith.”

“What was your lowest moment?” Oprah asked.

“When I got home from the hospital,” Ford answers. “Still, I didn’t know that they were thinking I was going to die. I thought I was just going to live and have no energy.”

For those who don’t understand what it’s like to live with disease, Ford attempted to explain the feeling. “Empty. It felt so lost, like, ‘Why am I here? Why do I want to be here? What am I doing?'” she said. “It just felt like I didn’t belong anymore.”

By making a conscious choice to fight, Ford found her courage and refused to give up. She found strength in her supportive loved ones, kept a “gratitude journal” to remind herself about the good things in life and made the most of every moment she had.

A year after her interview with Oprah aired, Ford passed away on Feb. 17, 2013 at her home in San Diego, lovingly surrounded by friends and family.

“God never gives us more than we can handle. Everything that comes our way is coming our way so that we can grow and evolve. If we look at it like that and we’re willing to open our hearts and see where we’re shut down, where we’re trying to resist life, then we have a great opportunity to step into who we always wanted to be.”

— Debbie Ford
