Hello world—Anthony here bringing you all the latest and greatest news from the entertainment world to get you through the week.
Every week when I sit down to write this column, there are certain celebrities that I try to avoid talking about , Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes just to name a few.
It seems that no matter how hard I try not to mention them every week, these celebs wind up doing something crazy and or questionable, so of course I have to put them in my column.
This week the culprit is Bieber. While Bieber’s behavior this year has been side-eye worthy, it seems that this past week things may have taken a turn for the worst.
While in the Netherlands on the European leg of his tour, Bieber decided to do a little sight seeing and stopped at the Anne Frank House.
Dedicated to the young Holocaust victim, the museum serves as a glimpse into the life she preserved in her diary.
Like most guests, Bieber signed the guest book, but it’s what he wrote in the book that is drawing criticism.
“Truly inspiring to be able to come here, Anne was a great girl,” Bieber wrote. “Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”
I’m pretty sure Anne Frank would have been too busy hiding from Nazis to worry about Justin and his little teenybopper tunes.
Bieber immediately received harsh criticism from the tasteless comment and has yet to issue an apology.
In other music industry related news, everyone’s favorite emotional rapper, Drake, dropped a new single from his forthcoming album.
In “Girls Love Beyoncé,” the rapper samples the Destiny’s Child hit “Say My Name.”
First Drake gets a tattoo of Aaliyah on his back and infamously stole some songs of hers, now he’s sampling someone else’s music yet again. And did I mention there’s a picture of Beyoncé’s face on the single cover?
We can only hope that wheel chair Jimmy will return to the music that we loved him for earlier in his career. Sampling other’s music is cool, but let’s not drag it out for 3 albums.
Moving on to something sadder than Drake on his period, true love got the final nail in the coffin this week when Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne were rumored to have separated after 31 years of marriage.
Rumors quickly started to swirl that Ozzy was back on the bottle and sniffing God knows what again.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Osbourne cleared up several of the rumors surrounding his and Sharon’s marriage.
“For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs,” he said. “However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.”
If Lindsay Lohan is still getting paid to walk around coked up on movie sets and get paid, then surely Ozzy and Sharon’s marriage can survive a little bump like alcohol and drug addiction.
As always tune into Pop Addict next week to catch up with some your favorite celebs in the news. Until next time pop culture enthusiasts.
