My family is currently going through a health crisis, and in light of that I’ve decided to place Celebrity Psychings on hiatus.
Combining the two topics–celebrities and mental health–isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so it’s always been my goal to do so in the most respectful and educational way possible.
I can’t guarantee either of those while my attention now is primarily focused on my family.
When is it acceptable for a woman to behave toward a man in such a way that is unacceptable for a man to behave toward her?
Is it ever?
I read a piece of of an interview Kim Kardashian gave London’s Sunday Times Style supplement the other day during which new mom Kardashian talks about her weight loss and post-baby fashion choices.
Overall, yawn, right? We’ve heard enough about Kardashian’s closet for a lifetime.
Seems like things are looking up for Jonathan Rhys Meyers!
Thanks to Netflix, The Tudors isn’t exactly long gone; however, the 36-year-old Meyers is filling another swoon-worth role as Alexander Grayson, the lead in NBC’s new fall drama, Dracula.
Aside from Albert Nobbs (written by and starring Glenn Close), we haven’t seen much of Meyers, who’s reportedly struggled with substance abuse and alcohol addiction and entered rehab on several occasions.
Starting October 25, though, we’ll see him every Friday night!
(Unless you’re in the UK, in which case you have to wait until Halloween–which, let’s face it, is way cooler.)
It’s World Mental Health Day 2013, and this year’s theme is “Mental Health and Older Adults.”
Because our celebrity quotes posts are always popular, I thought I’d give the readers what they want!
Only, this time focus specifically on older celebrities* who have a lot of wisdom to share when it comes to getting older, wiser–and better!
Sinead O’Connor has penned an open letter to Miley Cyrus, stating she’s “extremely concerned” for the “Wrecking Ball” singer and reminding her that the music industry doesn’t “doesn’t give a s–t” about her.
The entertainment industry exploded when the 20-year-old former Hannah Montana star sang and “danced” along side Robin Thicke during his summer hit, “Blurred Lines” at the 2013 MTV VMAs.
Though, it’s pretty safe to say there were no “blurred lines” where viewers’ opinions were concerned: you either loved it or haaaaaaaated it.
Dave Matthews of Dave Matthews Band and Grover of Sesame Street learn to express their feelings through song.
I’ve been thinking about how our personal lives play a role in our creative processes lately, and how open we should be about those roles.
Part of it’s kind of a no-brainer, I know. I mean, as a writer, I don’t think there’s one thing I’ve written that didn’t have at least a hint of personal experience and emotion in it — even the folder of documents I jokingly call a work-in-process novel.
But, what about the other part? The part about how open we should be about it?
Especially if it’s blatantly about someone else?
Today (September 10, 2013), the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) is sponsoring World Suicide Prevention Day.
The USC School of Social Work is sponsoring a Suicide Awareness Blog Carnival to commemorate this day of suicide awareness.
I’ve written past suicide-related posts about celebrities as well as suicide warning signs and suicide prevention and awareness, but today I’d like to shine a light on one of the most recent actors to come out about suicide (pun intended).
