Did Jennifer Lopez have a wardrobe malfunction at the Oscars? by Kate Johns

What's everybody talking about this morning? The Oscar's that's what! When Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez walked out onto the massive stage, they both were looking Curvalicious in their stunningly beautiful white dresses. But, did you notice that Jennifer Lopez's dress was showing a bit too much of her curves?

She had some nipple showing. It was there in plain view. Hello----Jennifer Lopez had a major wardrobe malfunction in front of millions of people.

Her dress was absolutely beautiful! Jennifer and Cameron looked gorgeous in their long, shimmering white Academy Award gowns, but Jennifer was going for shock value once again. Her long beautiful, white dress was stunning, yes. Her breasts were in full view, as her white dress formed a V in front. But the V  slid over just a little too much. My husband and I looked shocked at each other, as my husband yelled, "Wardrobe malfunction!"
He then held his hand up, and tried to move her dress over a smidgen so that Jennifer's nipple was not showing.

Was this an intentional play on J. Lo's part to gain more attention?
Most probably. Jennifer may be a millionaire many times over, but she still wants to shine in the glow of light cast upon her.
She wanted everyone to look at her,even if if that meant showing more cleavage the stunning Cameron Diaz was. Jennifer may be in her 40's, but she's still got it going on.
So, why not slip some nipple in there, to get that attention, thus selling more CD's, cologne, clothing, and gain more worldwide recognition? Besides, Jennifer's looking for husband number four, isn't she?

After that nipple slip up, hardly anyone was looking at Cameron Diaz, we were all looking at Jennifer's wardrobe malfunction! Cameron Diaz who? Copyright 2012, written by Kate Johns, who started her writing career in 2004 creating greeting card greetings.

Thoughts on Whitney Houston's Death by Kate Johns

Every day millions of people die, and many millions are born. Children are starving, nations are fighting, civil unrest is running rampant in many countries across the globe. So, why are we as regular, non-celebrity millionaires so interested, and shedding so many tears over another drug abusing celebrity's death?
We are mourning the loss of 48-year-old Whitney Houston's death. Okay, some people aren't, they aren't, because we regular people feel like we are a part of Whitney's life.
How is that possible, that perhaps a billion people across the world felt they were a part of Whitney Houston's life? None of us lived with Whitney. None of us ever talked to her, met her or saw her in person, except perhaps on stage.
But somehow, someway we felt compelled to be a part of her life.

Well let's see why we regular folks feel like we are a part of her life. Whitney Houston sold in excess of 170 million albums and Cds. in 20 years. Millions of people listened, danced, fell in love, got married, partied, had fun, while listening to Whitney Houston. Millions of people grew up listening to her music. Still millions more grew into young adults, and matured listening to Whitney sing, "I
Wanna Dance with Somebody." My husband and I  played her songs at many weddings we disc jockeyed at. We danced to several of her songs at our wedding.We had a great time dancing to her pop dance songs and slower, soulful, more tender songs at weddings, and parties.

We as a world witnessed Whitney go from glamorous, beautiful songstress, to a drug addled mess during the late nineties and early two thousands. We essentially saw the fall of someone who had come from a non-Hollywood background. She transcended the barrier between black and white. Whitney sang so beautifully, you couldn't help but stop and listen to her songs. You wondered how she produced that radiant, strong sound from her small, lean body.We did the unthinkable. We fell in love with a superstar. We adored her every elegant move. We listened to her dramatic, glorious voice carry every note to a beautiful crescendo.

Then we watched as that same superstar fell from grace. The girl with the amazingly beautiful voice, married bad boy Bobby Brown.Whitney was caught in a trap, she couldn't get out of. Her once lustrous, powerful voice sounded rough, hoarse, coarse, and it looked as though her career was over.
We watched with shock and horror as yet another millionaire superstar sank into a life gone wrong. We saw it happen many other times with Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Marilyn Monroe who died from their excessive lifestyles.

But why do we regular people feel we are a part of superstar's life? The main reason we do is because when a superstar becomes a superstar, her or his lifestyle becomes part of our lives. News stations, media, magazines, the Internet with websites and blogs suddenly cover every possible angle of this celebrity's life. Paparazzi follow celebrities everywhere, stalking them by taking pictures of the person until they feel violated. They have to hire bodyguards, and be happy 24-7 even though they are not. The media follows a  huge celebrity around because they can  make money selling the pictures of major celebrities. Photographers, reporters and bloggers stand to make money by following celebrities every waking move.
A well known celebrity becomes public property. Her every move is exposed to the world. That's why we regular people feel we know all about celebrities. We see them everyday at the checkout aisle.
We read about their problems, and their wealthy lifestyles that we can only dream of.

Why are we so interested in celebrities lives? by Kate Johns

We are bombarded with celebrity news every day. And in reality it is not news at all. Entertainment  Tonight was the first American TV show that covered what happened in celebrities lives before any other TV show appeared on the scene. Now today there are numerous TV shows, showcasing celebrities and all that they do, wear, talk about, how they act, how they look and where they went on vacation. And why do we care?

Well after thinking about this major life threatening dilemma for two minutes, one reason we are so interested in celebrities lives is because there are so many reality TV shows, celebrity shows, news stations, magazines, newspapers, blogs and websites basically throwing celebrity non-news into our faces every waking moment of our lives. Do we really need to know that Kim Kardashian changed her hairstyle? And that she did so, while wearing a red bra, and Tweeted the pictures of her large breasts on Twitter for the world to see.

Another fact of life is that we have so many social networking sites today, that anything a celebrity does can infatuate us into following their every movement. I thought following people was at one time called stalking?

We are so interested in celebrities lives because celebrities are living very public lives today. They are everywhere, and there are so many of them. There aren't just 25 major stars anymore like there were in the 1940's and 1950's, there are literally thousands. And with the advent of popular reality TV shows, people who were never meant to be stars, such as Snooki, are followed and mimicked by younger and older female fans.

We are so interested in celebrities lives because we either openly or secretly want to be pampered millionaires who live lives of excess and beauty. Who wouldn't want to have someone do all of that dull housework for them? Who wouldn't want to vacation in warm, sunny locales , partying the night as well as the day away? It sure beats working for a living, slaving away at a boring job where you make a certain amount an hour, a day or a year. Almost everyone wants to have a better life.

That's why we are so interested in celebrities lives, because they seemingly have it all. It's just like the saying that says, "Money doesn't bring happiness." Okay, then why do so many celebrities look so incredibly happy? Copyright 2012, written by Kate Johns a professional writer since 2004.

Ten Celebrities we love to hate by Kate Johns

Celebrities we love to hate.
After seeing some major celebrities having public meltdowns, or acting like stupid fools in public I thought "I really strongly dislike that woman."
It's strange how you can hate a celebrity so much you feel the need to start a Facebook page about her or him that is not exactly a fan Facebook page.

Ten celebrities we love to hate:

1. Topping celebrities we love to hate has to be Madonna. Madonna is so wealthy she could buy a small country.  But in reality she is so cheap she will not help her homeless brother, or pay for her relatives airfare to come visit her in England. I read her brother Christopher's biography about her, and he dished on what Madonna is really like.

2.Supermodel Gisele Bunchden, aka Mrs. Brady makes more money than her husband by modeling and personally I'd like to know why. She is not pretty, has no major curves. In fact Gisele is rather skinny, and recently she begged for all of Tom Brady's friends and relatives to pray and send good thoughts so he wins the Super bowl, because he needs this win.

3.Love him or hate him, Steven Tyler is here to stay. Since joining the cast of American Idol, Steven Tyler has been everywhere. We adored Aerosmith in the 1970's, but Steven's constant quips about women and bad singing vibes, are too much to handle. I liked Steven better when we saw and heard less from the master front man.

4.Miley Cyrus always struck me as being just a bit too obnoxious for her own good. When she starred in Disney's Hannah Montana I had to leave the room, to get away from her nasal voice. Doesn't it bother anyone that she really can not sing?

5.Naomi Campbell has been modeling for years and she has been beating up her staff of hired helpers for nearly as long. Naomi Supermodel  Campbell was born in 1970, is beautiful outside, but not inside, and is a celebrity that definitely belongs on this celebrities we love to hate list.

6. Would a celebrities we love to hate list be complete if Simon Cowell were not on it? Simon Cowell says what he feels, and feels what he says, and that is what a judge of talent is supposed to do. Many millions of people strongly dislike Simon Cowell. But if that's the case, then why do we watch American Idol?

7. Here's one that might surprise you----Conan O' Brien. I have watched his talk show and found him to be lacking in funny jokes. He just seemed obnoxious, like a little kid, making little kid fart jokes, in a big ugly guy's body. That's why I put him on my celebrities we love to hate list.

8. Demi Moore has made my celebrities we love to hate list because she married a guy 25 years younger than herself, she does drugs and is trying desperately to still look and act young. You're almost 50 Demi, it's time to act your age. Besides the woman admitted on David Letterman's talk show that she uses leaches on her skin to purify her blood. Crazy celebrity alert!!!

9. Is it just me or does Hugh Hefner creep you out? Doesn't anyone think it is gross, creepy, weird  that a man who is about 80 is sleeping with big breasted blondes so that they can become playmates of the year? Yuckkkk!

10. Chelsea Handler. When she first arrived on TV, she was funny. Not anymore. Her routine has become ultra dull. Besides the comedians that appear on her show are funnier than her. Who gave Chelsea Handler this show and why is she a millionaire?

There are more celebrities we love to hate, admit it, but this is only a top ten list. Maybe I'll create another celebrities we love to hate list in a few months including Kate Moss, Ashton Kutcher, and Bob Geldorf.

Is it true that Morgan Freeman will marry his step granddaughter? by Kate Johns

The other day while I was perusing Facebook, I caught an eye catching title of, "Morgan Freeman will marry his step granddaughter." At first I was shocked and horrified that a 74 year old man will even consider marrying someone almost fifty years his junior.
I read the story, which I believe was written on Yahoo Shine. After writing on my friend's Facebook comment section of this story, "Yuck, Gross, and Disgusting," I started looking around the Internet. What I found was that not one single other source, website or blog had any information about acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman marrying his step granddaughter.

I have to say, after reading that story, which was short on any real information, I was all set to run with the story and spread it around the Internet virtually ruining Morgan Freeman's valued reputation.
After looking at ten different websites, including Wikipedia, I have not found any information to go with this step granddaughter story. Morgan Freeman has been married and divorced twice though, and he has starred in many movies.
It was obviously written at least two years ago, because it had Morgan Freeman's age at 72, and his step granddaughter's age at 27. Freeman was born in June of 1937, making him 74 , not 72.

So what I am telling you is that you can't believe everything you read. And you certainly can't believe everything you read on the Internet. With the bogus story coming out saying that rocker Jon Bon Jovi was dead right before Christmas 2011, I'm thinking this is yet another hoax.  scam or spam desperate people are sending around the Internet to drive traffic to their poorly written websites or blogs.

So, as far as I know Morgan Freeman will not marry his step granddaughter, nor has Jon Bon Jovi died. By the way Cher is still alive and doing well, and Paula Abdul will not be back on the X-Factor next season.
