By Alicia Sparks

bob-dylan-quote

Look, we all know some people become celebrities by accident (no offense), and others have no business being celebrities (in the, you know, “look at you, being all full of talent and class”-sense).

However, some celebrities do have their footing in the soils of success (or, at least, a grasp on what it truly means), and maybe one or two of these quotes could strike a chord with you.

Nearly a year ago, NBA player Jason Collins did something no other male professional athlete for a major American sport had done before: he came out as an openly gay man.

Now, the 35-year-old center has signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets and made history again last night (Sunday, February 23, 2014) by playing in the first NBA game with an openly gay player on the court: the Brooklyn Nets vs. the L.A. Lakers.

(The Nets won, by the way.)

Take Note Ladies: Lauren Conrad Reveals Her Favorite Position

By Alicia Sparks

So, how much do we love Lauren Conrad right now?

I know, I know, I never thought I’d hear myself say that either (not that I have anything against Conrad; I’ve just never had anything for her, either), but her response during a Sway in the Morning interview with former MTV VJ Sway Calloway has taken the Internet by storm — in a damn good way.

(Just so you know, the interview was from October 2012; that it’s resurfaced and gained so much attention now shows you just how awesome was her answer.)

During the interview, former Laguna Beach star Lauren Conrad pulled three questions from a hat. She answered the first two fairly quickly, but when the third piece of paper asked her the age-old “What’s your favorite position?”, the Paper Crown designer and best-selling author clearly was taken aback — for just a hot minute, before answering, “CEO.”

BOOM!

Ladies, Lauren Conrad has shown us whether it’s mother, wife, teacher, counselor, or CEO, your favorite position doesn’t have to be — or outright isn’t — what brings you the most joy and satisfaction in bed.

It’s what brings you the most joy and satisfaction in life.

You can see the full clip over at Us Weekly, but if you want to skip to the good stuff it starts around 6:15.

Whether you’re a fan or not, what’d you think of Conrad’s response?

Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman Dead at 46; Police Suspect Drug Overdose

By Alicia Sparks

Philip Seymour Hoffman

(UPDATE 2/5/14: Four individuals have been arrested in relation to Hoffman’s drug overdose, according to The New York Daily News and CNN. Authorities found more than 350 bags of heroin in three different apartments. (Upon further investigation, 70 bags of heroin were found in Hoffman’s apartment. Currently, police aren’t certain whether those four individuals sold the heroin to Hoffman or if they’re part of a larger drug ring.)

(UPDATE 2/3/14: CNN reports Hoffman failed to pick up his children Sunday, as was scheduled, and law enforcement found Hoffman surrounded by eight empty bags, the type of which generally contain heroin. The bags were labeled “Ace of Spades” and “Ace of Hearts.” Both are known street names for heroin.)

Celebrity Psychings has sad news to report today: actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has died.

The 46-year-old Oscar-winning actor, famous for his roles as Truman Capote in Capote and Lester Bangs in Almost Famous, was found dead in his New York City apartment at noon (February 2, 2014).

At the time of this post, a cause of death is unknown or has not been released; however, police do suspect a drug overdose due to a needle in his arm:

The official cause of death is still unknown at this point, however, the police confirm to “The Insider With Yahoo” that he may have died of a suspected overdose, as he was found with a needle in his arm.

Hearing about Seymour’s death is especially tragic because — less than one year ago — the actor had completed rehab and was on a seemingly strong road to recovery. He’d wrapped up his role in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and, at the time, was working on indie film God’s Pocket.

I’ll update as news becomes available.

In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers go out to Hoffman’s three children Tallulah Hoffman, Cooper Alexander Hoffman, and Willa Hoffman, and his partner Mimi O’Donnell.
