Marteen Estevez dropped his free-spirited “Sriracha” video yesterday, which is full of his spicy, slick, and soulful style. The catchy chorus goes, “Girl you got a body like Sriracha, every time I bring you ‘round the homies wanna watch ya, got it from your mama but that ain’t what she taught ya, that’s why I [...] Marteen Estevez dropped his free-spirited “Sriracha” video yesterday, which is full of his spicy, slick, and soulful style. The catchy chorus goes, “Girl you got a body like Sriracha, every time I bring you ‘round the homies wanna watch ya, got it from your mama but that ain’t what she taught ya, that’s why I call you lil’ ‘racha.” The Barkeley-born singer is emerging as a hyper creative, singing, dancing wunderkind. “My music is a modern take on nineties R&B with a little Bay Area edge,” shares 16-year-old Marteen, who just signed to Warner Bros. Records. “Coming from Northern California, you have a certain mentality. It’s an indescribable attitude.” Click inside to read JustJared.com‘s exclusive interview with Marteen… MARTEEN ESTEVEZ INTERVIEW JJ: Congratulations on Sriracha, the video is amazing! Riding on the hood of the car is such an awesome shot. Did you conceptualize the video? ME: Thanks. Not completely, but I wanted to make sure it represented the Bay Area since that’s where I’m from, and the standing on cars comes from the hyphy movement of the early 2000′s. We shot the whole thing in West Oakland and had a lot of fun. JJ: How did the song come about? Did you write it and who did you work with on the song? ME: The song started kinda as a joke one day when I was eating some fried rice with Sriracha on it in the studio and told my producer JR [Rotem] that we should make a song called Sriracha. I told him I wanted it to have a fun feel and he started playing the piano part that’s in the song. The beginning of the hook came to me right away and I started playing around with it. We knew as soon as I laid down the first couple melodies that it was gonna be dope. We showed it to my homies Marty James and YMTK a couple days later and they helped us finish it. JJ: Do you really love Sriracha as a hot sauce and spicy food in general? What are your favorite spicy foods? ME: I do love Sriracha actually. I don’t put hella of it on stuff, but I like to spice things up a little. I also really like Frank’s hot sauce. I don’t eat a lot of overly spicy foods but I mess with curry and love Thai and Indian food. JJ: Name the top five celebs who have bodies like Sriracha. ME: Well even though I say “body like Sriracha” in the song I’m not actually talking about a perfect body cause that could be different for everyone depending on what you like, but I more mean an attitude and confidence. I would say my top five based on that is Rihanna, Gal Gadot, Zendaya, Ella Mai, and Cardi B. Betty White a lil’ racha too tho. (laughs) JJ: You have a unique sense of style. Who do you look to for fashion inspiration? Are there certain movies, eras or people who have informed your look? ME: Yeah I figured out that I really like clothes from the 80′s and 90′s. My dad jokes that I like grandpa clothes cause I see old people all the time and say how fire their clothes are. (laughs) Fashion is one of our biggest ways to show self-expression and I like to wear things that make me feel happy. JJ: Your new haircut is very polarizing. People either LOVE or HATE your version of the bowl cut. What made you get it done and how long will you be keeping it? ME: Yeah it’s funny cause you’re right, people are like WTF is up with your hair or they really like it and respect me having my own style. I cut it cause I had the same haircut for awhile and wanted to change it up. I wanted to get something that nobody my age really had and started looking at haircuts online to find something different. I ran across this barber from London who made up this cut called the London Fringe which is what inspired my haircut. I like being different so it’s okay if people don’t always get it cause most people are used to everyone being the same. I’ll probably rock it till I’m tired of it and want to try something new. JJ: You grew up in San Francisco’s Bay Area. What’s your ethnic background? What was your childhood like? How does that reflect in your personal style, your music, and your life in general? ME: I’m mixed with Colombian and white, but my family is a rainbow of different races. I went through some things growing up with family members close to me who were struggling with drug addiction and other stuff, but it’s taught me a lot about what I want and don’t want for my life, and helps me make better decisions as I get older. I moved around a lot as a kid too and grew up in seven different cities in the Bay. I’ve lived in the hood, middle class neighborhoods, and a nice neighborhood. I think being able to see different things and perspectives has made me who I am. It gave me an appreciation for different cultures, and gave me understanding for people from all backgrounds. All of this has played a part in my music, my message, and who I am. I definitely want to be a voice for positivity and hope. A lot of kids don’t come from the best backgrounds and they need to know that they can still do anything they dream – like I am. JJ: You recently went to the Teen Choice Awards. Who are some new teen artists you’ve been obsessed with recently? ME: I can’t really think of any teen artist that I’ve been listening to lately, I listen to a lot of just slightly older artists – PnB Rock, Ty Dolla $ign, Calvin Harris, and Amine. JJ: What are some of your favorite restaurants in LA? Where are your favorite hang-out spots in LA? ME: I love BeaBea’s in Burbank…they got the best breakfast. Mama Hong’s in Burbank got the best Pho. SweetGreen got the best salads. Pink Pepper in Hollywood got some bomb Thai, and Portos always smacks on the pastries and Cuban food. I also love Tender Greens, Chick-fil-A, and hella other places. I love food in general. (laughs) As far as hang-out spots, I mostly kick it at friends’ houses, but I love going to Venice Beach. It reminds me of the Bay for some reason. JJ: When can fans expect new music? Any collaborations? Is there an EP or album on the way?​ How soon? ME: I’m dropping a project very soon, but I don’t have an exact date yet. I’m not focused on getting any collabs right now, but we’ll see. They can definitely count on me dropping more music and visuals over the next couple months!.....»»

"Only You And Your Darkness Know Who You Are" — Read Amber Tamblyn"s Open Letter To James Woods!

Now we know what she meant when she said this wasn't over. In case you missed how this feud got started, former movie star and current day conservative crank James Woods blasted the upcoming LGBT movie adaptation of Call Me By Your Name for its depiction of a romance between a 24-year-old and a 17-year-old. After star [...] Now we know what she meant when she said this wasn't over. In case you missed how this feud got started, former movie star and current day conservative crank James Woods blasted the upcoming LGBT movie adaptation of Call Me By Your Name for its depiction of a romance between a 24-year-old and a 17-year-old. After star Armie Hammer called out Woods' hypocrisy -- as he dated a 19-year-old when he was 60 -- Amber Tamblyn revealed the actor had actually hit on her when she was just 16! Even after she told him! Video: See The Call Me By Your Name Trailer After he responded that her story was a lie, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star decided to come guns blazing at the Diggstown actor with an open letter in the pages of Teen Vogue. In the letter she recalls the entire story of Woods' gross approach of her and her friend, and man he does NOT look good. Read the entire letter (below): Dear Mr. Woods, What you are experiencing is called a teachable moment. It is called a gift. It is called a humbling. It is called Jesus, I come to thee. It is called an awakening. It is called a growth edge. It is called hope. The hope being that through this experience, you can change. You can redefine the man who will come after this moment and this man who came before. Since you've now called me a liar, I will now call you a silencer. I see your gaslight and now will raise you a scorched earth. My friend Billy and I were at the Roxy on Sunset Boulevard seeing a band we loved. We decided to go to Mel's diner on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood to get burgers after. I had just gotten my driver's license and very specifically remember my nervousness trying to park in the diner parking lot. Upon leaving the restaurant we were stopped by you and your friend, who both seemed very nice. At one point you suggested we should all go to Las Vegas together. "It's such a great place, have you ever been?" You tried to make it sound innocent. This is something predatory men like to do, I've noticed. Make it sound innocent. Just a dollop of insinuation. Just a hair of persuasion. Just a pinch of suggestion. "It will be so much fun, I promise you. Nothing has to happen, we will just have a good time together." I told you my age, kindly and with no judgment or aggression. I told you my age because I thought you would be immediately horrified and take back your offer. You laughed and said, "Even better. We'll have so much fun, I promise." Here's the thing, Mr. Woods. At that time I was not a public persona. I had done a couple years on a soap opera as an actress, but you wouldn't know me from Adam. I'm sure you've racked your brain trying to remember how you could've possibly hit on the actress Amber Tamblyn at a diner almost two decades ago. You think, it's not possible, there's no way I would've been so stupid as to hit on a 16-year-old known actress. But I wasn't known then, James. I was just a girl. And I'm going to wager that there have been many girls who were just girls or women who were just women who you've done this to because you can get away with it. The saddest part of this story doesn't even concern me but concerns the universal woman's story. The nation's harmful narrative of disbelieving women first, above all else. Asking them to first corroborate or first give proof or first make sure we're not misremembering or first consider the consequences of speaking out or first let men give their side or first just let your sanity come last. So it is with hope, Mr. Woods, that I ask you to go inward now and ask yourself the hard stuff. The ominous unconscious stuff. The archetypal masculinity stuff. The power-play stuff. The perversion persuasion stuff. The secretive stuff. The id's most cherished stuff. Only you and your darkness know who you are. Only you and your actions know what you've done. That means you and only you have the power to change your behavior. Are you and your history with women and girls a part of the problem, Mr. Woods? Go now and look in the mirror and ask yourself if this is true. Go on, I'll wait. But I won't hold my breath. [Image via Joseph Marzullo/FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

George Lucas Says He Sold ‘Star Wars’ To “White Slave Drivers”

Oh boy. It sounds like George Lucas isn’t exactly thrilled with ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ no matter that the film has made over $1 billion in record time. He got honest about why he decided to sell ‘Star Wars’ to Disney and what he thinks of ‘The Force Awakens.’ RELATED: Here are red carpet […] Oh boy. It sounds like George Lucas isn’t exactly thrilled with ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ no matter that the film has made over $1 billion in record time. He got honest about why he decided to sell ‘Star Wars’ to Disney and what he thinks of ‘The Force Awakens.’ RELATED: Here are red carpet pictures from the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ premiere, including a sparkling Lupita Nyong’o, Daisy Ridley, George Lucas and more! George explained how he ended up selling the ‘Star Wars’ franchise (actually all of Lucas Films) to Disney in the first place. I looked at the future, I looked at the fact that I was going to have a baby, I looked at the fact that I was married, and I looked at the fact that I wanted to build a museum, and I looked at the fact that I wanted to make experimental films. So, my life was going on a different track. I noticed the last few movies that I’d made were costing the company a lot of money and I didn’t think that was fair to the people that worked there or the company. So, I made a decision to move ahead on the next Star Wars series and we were starting to do that. “We were working with a writer—it wasn’t quite working out—but I was also…you know, I was also stepping away a little bit and turning things over to Kathy Kennedy.” He was sharing his thoughts about retirement to Disney’s Bob Iger, who told him: ‘If you really want to sell it, we’re very interested.'” That put the sale in motion. I had the story treatments outlined and we were working on scripts. So, I sold it, but I knew when I sold it, I said, ‘I’ve tried to make movies where I step away—Empire and Return of the Jedi—and after about a couple weeks I knew I couldn’t do that. I had to stand over the shoulder of the director, help him, whisper in his ear constantly, ‘No, do this. Do that.’ And be there to help guide it. It was much harder than if I had just directed it myself.” Apparently, however, the idea of George staying involved- or perhaps the ideas he had for the stories- made Disney “a little nervous,” according to the ‘Star Wars’ creator. One of the issues was the first three movies had all kinds of issues. They looked at the stories and they said, ‘We want to make something for that fans.’ I said, ‘All I wanted to do was tell a story of what happened.’ You know, it started here and it went there. It’s all about generations, and it’s about the issues of fathers and sons and grandfathers. It’s a family soap opera. I mean, ultimately. We call it a space opera but people don’t realize it’s actually a soap opera and it’s all about family problems. It’s not about spaceships. They decided they didn’t want to use those stories. They decided they were going to go do their own thing, so I decided, ‘Fine.'” George admitted that Disney wasn’t “that keen to have me involved anyway.” Ouch. So instead he treated the sale like a breakup. At the same time I said, ‘I’m not gonna…If I get in there, I’m just going to cause trouble because they’re not going to do what I want them to do and I don’t have the control do that anymore, and all it would do is muck everything up.’ So I said, ‘OK, I will go my way and let them go their way.’ And it really does come down to a simple rule of life, which is when you break up with somebody, the first rule is no phone calls. The second rule, you don’t go over to their house and drive by to see what they’re doing. The third thing is you don’t show up at their coffee shop or their thing like you’re going to run it. You just say, ‘No! Gone! History! I’m moving forward.’ Because every time you do…something like that, you’re opening the wound again, and it just makes it harder for you. You have to put it behind you, and it’s a very, very hard thing to do. But you have to just cut it all off and say, ‘OK, end of all game. I’ve got to move on.'” Given the creative disagreements, that was probably the best approach for him to take, don’t you think? RELATED: Tie the knot, he will: George Lucas is engaged! George shared his conflicted feelings about selling the ‘Star Wars’ franchise. Everything in your body says, ‘Don’t. You can’t.’ These are my kids. I loved them. I created them. I’m very intimately involved with them.” Yet he did sell them. He said: I sold them to the white slavers that take these things, and…” Oh my. George does sound very conflicted. He also opened up about his thoughts on ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ admitting it wasn’t what he would have done. J.J. Abrams, he’s a good director, a good friend. “They wanted to do a retro movie. I don’t like that. Every movie, I worked very hard to make them different. I made them completely different—different planets, different spaceships to make it new.” I think that’s a fair comment to make about ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’: it does feel very much like ‘Star Wars Espisode IV: A New Hope’ rather than an original movie, per se, although it’s still an incredibly fun film to watch! It is a reboot with the next generation of characters. I’m curious about what George would have done, but I’m a bit fearful, too: I’m one of the people who wasn’t a big fan of the prequels. The idea was interesting, but the stories just didn’t quite work. I can’t imagine what it must be like for George, though, as the creator, watching your story go on without you. Four billion dollar sale or not, it’s gotta be tough. I don’t know if the success of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ makes things better or worse. Photos by FAMEFLYNET.....»»

While many fans were still recovering from Miz Lindsay's decision to send home baby faced Dean, the powerhouse attorney was busy taking her relationships with her final beaus to the next level. How?? By bringing them home to meet her family, of course! Related: BIP's Amanda Stanton Has Found Love Again Now, normally, the bachelorette's family is flown to some exotic location to meet up with the lead and her remaining men. However, the ABC dating competition broke from tradition this time around as Rachel's sister was eight months pregnant at the time of filming and couldn't travel. Thus Peter, Bryan, and Eric packed their bags and flew to Dallas for some quality time with the Lindsays. Unsurprisingly, not EVERYONE made a great impression on Rachel's fam. So let's dig into the hometown visit! As Peter is the frontrunner, it only seemed right that the gap toothed cutie get the first meet and greet with the Lindsays. Peter was VVV eager to spend time with Rachel as he totally dropped the ball in articulating how he feels about her. While shopping for baby gifts for Rachel's sister, Peter gushed to the season 13 lead: "You do mean the world to me. I want you to have so much confidence going into this in us and in me, and know that you're introducing a good person who is here for you. And I am falling in love with you." And he's back in the lead, y'all! The twosome then made their way to Rachel's residence for a hangout with her mom Kathy, her aunt Connie, her uncle Jeff, her sister Constance, and Constance's husband Alex. The Lindsay patriarch was noticeably absent during the family meeting, but he IS a federal judge so he probably opted out of appearing on a trashy reality show. Anywho, Peter's respectful and honest nature won over the Lindsays, especially Kathy. During a chat about Peter's hesitation to propose at the end of all of this, Rachel's mom actually appreciated the businessman's decision to not ask for her blessing. Way to be sincere AF, bb! Eric was next on deck -- and SUPER nervous about meeting Rachel's family. Why?? Well, because it's been six or seven years since the personal trainer has met a girl's family. But before we get into his visit with the Lindsays, let's cut back to the drama at the hotel between Bryan and Peter. Related: Ben Higgins Isn't Ready To Kiss Someone Else! As they're the two frontrunners, it isn't shocking to see that Peter and Bryan have some tension between them. Upon learning that Peter didn't ask Kathy for her blessing to propose to Rachel, Bryan told the Wisconsin native that he'd be doing just that. Peter was rightfully annoyed by this "ballsy" move and candidly told Bryan: "What's awkward is having to sit here with her other boyfriend, knowing that her other boyfriend is home with her family right now. I don't want to be sitting here with you right now, I'm not going to lie." Preach, bro. But, enough of these two, back to Eric... Eric has shocked us all by landing in the final three and, after a rocky start, has become the underdog we're all rooting for. Now, the 29-year-old definitely raised a few eyebrows when he admitted that his longest relationship didn't even hit the year mark. Still, Eric's earnestness seemed to win everyone over and he even snagged Kathy's blessing to propose to Rachel. Awwww. On meeting Eric, momma Lindsay dished: "Today was good. I was pleasantly surprised again at Rachel's choice. I like the fact that Eric appears very honest, and has a desire to get married and raise a family. I can understand why this is going to be a tough decision for her. Eric is still in the game, folks! And for the moment we've been waiting for, Bryan met with the Lindsay clan. We knew the moment Bryan started spitting lines Rachel's protective family would start grilling him. We mean, like we said, the Lindsay patriarch is a FEDERAL JUDGE! Before Bryan was introduced to Rachel's loved ones though, the Miami native met with two of the bachelorette's gal pals. While it may've seemed like Rachel was all about Bryan since day one, the legal expert dished to her friends: "Let's just be real: I thought he was a douchebag. I really did. I was waiting for the charm to [wear] off and he was like: ‘Look, I'm not going to let you mess this up.' " Of course, this comment inspired Bryan to turn up the charm even more. The smooth talking went over well with Rachel's friends, but NOT with the Lindsays. In fact, there was serious tension between the chiropractor and the Lindsay crew from the get go. Kathy even questioned Bryan's loyalties to Rachel after learning about his (seemingly unhealthy) relationship with his mother. Kathy went as far as to force Bryan to admit on camera (TWICE) that he'd pick Rachel's side over his mother's in the instance that the women butted heads. We're sure this gave Bryan's mother a heart attack. The interrogation against Bryan upset Rachel a ton as she told the cameras: "I was very excited to introduce Bryan to my family, but I felt like my excitement wasn't reciprocated by my family. I'm irritated at this point. The energy is totally different than it was the other two days with Peter and Eric." Later, when revealing her love for Bryan to her mother, Kathy shared that she doesn't feel comfortable with this notion. Rachel's sister clearly felt the same way as she questioned Bryan's sincerity. Nonetheless, Bryan came to Dallas to get Rachel's mother's blessing and was NOT leaving the family sit down without it. Reluctantly, Kathy told Bryan: "Because I trust her judgment, you have my blessing to take this initial love. And just build on that." Awkward! After three VERY different visits with the Lindsays, the final suitors were whisked away to La Rioja, Spain. Eric landed the first overnight date and boy did it go over well. Rachel took Eric on helicopter ride around the region even though he hates heights, and it further proved that he'll do anything to win the bachelorette's heart. In typical Bachelorette fashion, the outing ended with some down time and a declaration of love. Related: Rachel Gushes About Her 'Hopeless Romantic' Fiancé! After dancing around the word "love" for awhile, Eric gushed to Rachel: "I don't know if you understand how much you challenge me emotionally, making me feel vulnerable and open — it feels amazing. Everything about this feels right. You embody everything I would want in a wife. Nothing else matters. I'm just here to say that I'm in love with you. I tried to run … but this is it. I'm here. I'm here for you. I'm just a happy man. I've never felt this way about a girl, ever. Rachel Lindsay, I love you." We're not crying, YOU ARE! Rachel rewarded Eric's openness with an invitation to the Fantasy Suite. He said yes, because, duh. Peter had the next overnight date and was taken to a local vineyard for some fun. Yet their date took a serious turn as, later on, Rachel laid into Peter for his reluctance to propose. After sharing that she doesn't believe that getting engaged means they have to rush into marriage, Rachel relayed: "I didn't come this far and put my life on hold and sacrifice everything I had to do this to just have a boyfriend at the end of it — that's not what I want." You tell 'em, girl! Peter wouldn't budge though as he noted that he believes "an engagement is marriage." He added: "I don't want you to give up on what you believe and what you need in your life. We talked about trying to find the common ground — I just don't know what that is with something that is so polar opposite. I don't know how to get through that." *GASP* Understandably, Peter's admission was "absolutely devastating" to Rachel. The reality TV starlet even concluded to the cameras: "I don't know what to do. I was hopeful for what Peter and I could be, and then just like that, I didn't see it. Tonight, for the first time ever, I'm thinking Peter and I might not work out." Will Peter get the boot? Could Eric actually win this thing? We'll just have to wait and see! Don't forget, The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC......»»

Kesha Pens Heartbreaking Letter To Her Younger Self — "There Will Always Be A Rainbow At The End Of The Storm"

Kesha came out to Hollywood with a dollar and a dream — and she's certainly been through the ringer on her journey to fame. Appearing on CBS This Morning, the Praying songstress read a letter she penned to her 18-year-old self about the trials and tribulations ahead of her. The 30-year-old penned: "Dear Kesha, At this very moment [...] Kesha came out to Hollywood with a dollar and a dream -- and she's certainly been through the ringer on her journey to fame. Appearing on CBS This Morning, the Praying songstress read a letter she penned to her 18-year-old self about the trials and tribulations ahead of her. The 30-year-old penned: "Dear Kesha, At this very moment you may be wondering whether it was really a good idea to drop out of high school. I moved to L.A. with nothing but your grandpa's Lincoln Town Car and a demo tape. I've got good news — and I've got bad news — and I know you're a tad impatient, so I'll start with the good news: You made it! And thank God because the best plan B we ever came up with was waitressing, and as you will soon find out, that was not really our forte." Related: Kesha Says Her New Album 'Quite Literally Saved My Life' And here is where the bad news comes in: "The bad news, is you nearly killed yourself on the road to success, fueled by fear of failure, crippling anxiety, and insecurity. You will become severely bulimic and anorexic — and the worse your disease gets the more praise you will get from some people in your industry, and this will really, really mess with your head. But when you are trying to live up to an unrealistic expectation, it's never gonna be good enough no matter what you do." The Woman singer also advised her younger self to skip the comments section on social media altogether in order to "save yourself from anxiety and a few years' worth of therapy": "Don't let people scare and shame you into changing the things about yourself that make you unique and interesting. Those are the qualities that will make your life so magical. That bad girl, ‘I don't give a shit' attitude, that'll work for a while and you will get a dollar sign tattooed on yourself that will last forever, probably. But the truth is, you don't need to put on an act. You can just be Kesha Rose Sebert. And guess what? Apparently that's good enough." The passionate letter concluded: "You must be strong because over time you will gain confidence and people will learn that words and art do matter. One day, you're gonna write a song called ‘Rainbow' and you're gonna be really proud of it because there is light and beauty after the storm no matter how hard things get. you're gonna write this song to remember to make it through and you're gonna remind yourself to love yourself and if you have truth in your heart there will always be a rainbow at the end of the storm." So powerful! Watch Kesha read the emotional message in the video (below)! [Image via CBS.].....»»

10 Tips to Help You Look and Feel Like a Millionaire (Even When You’re Not)

It’s often said that if you want to achieve something; first you need to act like that. It’s the “fake it until you make it” strategy and it’s often a very successful one. So how do you “fake it until you make it” with the millionaire lifestyle when you haven’t got those millions to make the transition easy? Here are 10 tips to help you look and feel like a millionaire, even when you’re not a millionaire: Revamp Your Wardrobe You can’t look like a millionaire without having a good wardrobe but that doesn’t mean spending a ton of money. It means buying fewer clothes but better clothes. A good rule of thumb is to spend 3 times as much as you would at the moment but buy one-third as many clothes. If you learn to buy wardrobes which mix and match well – you can wear the same item more often without dressing identically every day. Start Volunteering Want to hang out with millionaires and learn from them? You’d be amazed at how many wealthy people volunteer and support good causes. Do a little research; where do the movers and shakers hang out when they’re doing good work? Then go and join them. This is an incredibly inexpensive strategy and it will make you feel good to do something great in the community. The efforts you expend will increase your network and expose you to opportunities that you might never have seen otherwise. Show Good Manners Wealthy people have manners. It’s pretty much a staple expectation of those who’ve reached a certain station in life. It’s also good practice to be well-mannered anyway. People will like you more when you show restraint rather than huffing at someone for a minor delay or speaking down to someone because you’re irritated with them. It’s something that business colleagues and clients will appreciate to. Ladies –Ditch The Flat Shoes This is terribly sexist but it’s the way that society works. Elegant, wealthy women do not dress in a frumpy fashion. High heels mold the profile of a woman’s leg to suggest a certain sexuality; flat shoes, on the other hand, suggest that you don’t care about your appearance and that you’ve probably got a house full of cats in your future. The millionaire lifestyle isn’t always comfortable unfortunately – it’s always about putting your best foot forward (literally in this case). Start Collecting Something Rich people collect things; guns, medals, books, records, etc. are all items which can be collected and which draw wealthy, influential people. That doesn’t mean you need a copy of The Gutenberg Bible but events run for collectors often offer things that are much more affordable to those of us without billions in the bank. As you get involved in collecting; you’ll start reading up on the field and you’ll be able to converse with the wealthier collectors without sounding like an idiot – you don’t need a silver plated Colt handgun to know that it’s an interesting and fascinating piece and it’s that knowledge that [...].....»»

Chester Bennington"s Ex-Wife Lashes Out At "Disgusting Delusional Display" After Funeral Organizers Dissed Her Son!

Samantha Bennington is upset, and she is not biting her tongue anymore. The ex-wife of the late Chester Bennington says that she was "disgusted" by the fact she and their 15-year-old son Draven were basically cut out of the Linkin Park singer's funeral services.

The ex-wife of the late Chester Bennington says that she was "disgusted" by the fact she and their 15-year-old son Draven were basically cut out of the Linkin Park singer's funeral services. Related: Linkin Park Announces 'Public Event' In Los Angeles To Honor Chester In a lengthy Facebook post, Samantha calls out specific events such as the fact they weren't allowed to speak, and that there was only one photo of Draven anywhere, and that none of his family was mentioned anywhere in the programs (which she says looked like "a cheap happy hour menu." She also says she and her guests were purposely not included in an "after bowling celebration" following the service. According to Samantha, organizers had no interest in honoring all of Chester's life, only the "12 years" they were a part of. And she has some harsh words for the unnamed persons responsible: "I hope you like capitalizing on his death .. karma is real. I send you back all your energy to you a thousand time folds! Look in the mirror, I hope you like what you see. Business is business but I see Zero Love.." Wow. Though she never says exactly who is responsible, she does mention that Draven was "never treated equally by T," presumably Chester's wife Talenda. You can read the entire angry rant (below): "I have been a lady, I have kept my mouth shut. I hold my head up high but as my head starts to lower I'm not in my own truth. Today I speak & I'm not looking for conflict but I will not sit on my hands any longer. Today Dra is staying home with me. Yesterday was too soon. We have many thoughts & emotions on how everything & everything by all of his "wrecking crew" involved is handling this. We want to speak with the suicide foundation. We want to help others. My son & I have not had an opportunity to speak not even at his funeral ( that only represented his life that he was married to his new wife) no photos but one of him anywhere, it was more like checking into KROQ's Weinie Roast Festival. Dra was never treated equally by T & never wanted to go there because of that. Now because he doesn't want to go into the home where his father's suicide took place, the rumors of me keeping my son from his siblings couldn't be further from the truth! How was that dinner we all met at??? Oh thanks for not honoring the one wish my son had by sharing his prayer with his siblings & throwing the rose quarts into the ocean with him. Thank you for not giving me or my 31 guests any knowledge of we're the "after bowling celebration was" oh & your phone calls hours later wondering were we were lmfao still never mentioned where to go, name of place or address, it was a disgusting delusional display on all people who spoke at the funeral & their characters. Never mentioning a man who grew up from a little boy and loved many things, becoming a rock star was just one thing! We're were photos of him,? why did the program look like a cheap happy hour menu?! I'm so disgusted on so many levels! Their were many friends & family that should have been there but when you turn a funeral into reducing someone's life into only 12 years that's what you get! His parents both were not there (meaning his dad-both parents) mother was there for clarification , & his parents were not mentioned in the program, his siblings were not mentioned, the mothers of his children were not mentioned, even his own children were not listed on the program! There should have been photos of all of us together with our kids & separate. I'm so glad I have all the paper work to back up every judgement etc. especially the judgements that chester did protecting Dra so that our son went there when his dad was home only! Yes, in the end we are completely grateful to that judge. My ex told me & shared a lot with Dra & I. I won't lie to my son for you or anyone. His dad told us both to our face everything when we were out to dinner, at our new home, etc. I'm sure he may of told us all what we would want to hear to get us all off his back. It doesn't matter if I'm ex wife or new wife or ex girlfriend. He choose to be with all of us, have children, & this isn't a blaming game. He is ultimately responsible. However, You all forget the sacrifice my husband & I made financially & keeping peoples positions in place when we we were young and participate making LP even happen. Shame on you!! The truth on every level will come out. We haven't had the opportunity to honor his dad properly for his life time, & the lack of respect & honesty is just disgusting! We do not have a place to go or even any of his ashes!!! You want my son to have some of his things, then give him something you feel is meaningful, do not force him to go into that house he is 15 and even from a year from now I don't think things will change. All our doctors, friends, & family are supporting my son & his choice, this is Draven my son not yours. He would rather not have a jacket from his dad then have you force him to go into that home. Thank you for returning the crystal draven gave him on his birthday this April from Buddha Matrea. Yes, Bali, Healing's, meditation, therapist, yoga & fitness instructors!! We are filling up ourselves with healthiest ways possible. We need all of this especially now. We know why your the way you are & say the things you say. Your afraid the truth will come out. I'm not speaking to just one person. I hope you like capitalizing on his death .. karma is real. I send you back all your energy to you a thousand time folds! Look in the mirror, I hope you like what you see. Business is business but I see Zero Love.. Therapy even on weekends,,, whatever it takes. The frustration is really on so many levels! We know who are friends & family are so if your offended ., good then you read this & it applies!" [Image via Facebook/Ricky Swift/WENN.].....»»

8 Tips to Fend Off The Post-Workout Munchies

A healthy lifestyle involves a healthy diet and a ton of exercise. The trouble is that a workout can lead to serious hunger pangs and if you let yourself; you’ll end up eating more calories than you burned during your workout and that’s going to mean that your exercise routine starts making you fat. Here are our tips to fend off the post-workout munchies to allow you to make the most of your workout: Your Brain Lies To You Post-Workout And So Does Your Calorie Tracker People’s brains are funny things; they may be hugely complex organic computers capable of more than any supercomputer on earth but they’re also often hugely inaccurate. When you work out – your body’s hormone levels drop and in particular the hormones that tell you that you’re full. On top of this; your body’s sugar reserves are plundered during the exercise and that triggers a message to your brain to fetch more sugar. This means that people are often far hungrier following exercise than the exercise justifies. A workout which burns 250 calories can lead to 500 calories worth of consumption. If you can recognize that this isn’t logical – you can start to take steps to prevent yourself from scoffing down every chocolate bar in the cupboard. In particular, you can stop using that calorie tracking tool to make food decisions. Don’t replace the calories on that tracker – make a point of only replacing half or fewer calories. (It’s important to note that calorie trackers are notoriously inaccurate and generally over-estimate the number of calories burned too). Eat Slowly Even When You Feel Famished That post-exercise hunger can make you feel like you haven’t eaten in weeks and that you’re literally starving. Except you’re not literally starving unless you also have a severe eating disorder. Assuming that’s not the case – you need to think about the fact that you’re not starving and eat slowly. When we’re really hungry we tend to wolf food down and because it takes our bodies roughly 20 minutes to let the brain know we’ve eaten properly – that means we pack in far too much food before the signal gets sent out. Slow down, chew more than you would normally (which is also good for digestion) and be prepared to wait a little for the brain to feel satiated again. It’s only going to be a few minutes. Get Proteins and Fats Into The Food Mix And Leave Them Until Last When we’re still hungry even after we’ve eaten well – it’s often because there wasn’t enough fat and protein in the meal that we’ve just had. While carbohydrates (sugars) are important; they’re quickly digested by the body and that makes us hungry again. It’s also worth noting that if you work out in the morning; there’s a lot of evidence which shows a breakfast with fatty content will not just make you feel less hungry but will make you smarter for the day too. (This is to do with fat stimulating the myelin (fatty) [...].....»»

Pink Opens Up About Struggling With Monogamy, Not Having Sex In A YEAR, & Much More In New Interview!

Pink is getting very real while promoting her new album Beautiful Trauma! Chatting with The Guardian, the singer got deep about her personal life, like her marriage to Carey Hart, which she'll have you know is "work!"

Chatting with The Guardian, the singer got deep about her personal life, like her marriage to Carey Hart, which she'll have you know is "work!" The two married in 2006, but split in 2008 only to reconcile in 2009. Related: Pink Says Dr. Luke Is "Not A Good Person" Talking about their relationship, Pink mused about a period when they went without sex for a year: "There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant … he's like a rock. He's a good man. He's a good dad. He's just the kind of dad I thought he'd be and then some. And then I'll look at him and go: I've never liked you. There's nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don't like any of the shit you like. I don't ever wanna see you again. Then two weeks later I'm like, things are going so good, you guys. Then you'll go through times when you haven't had sex in a year. Is this bed death? Is this the end of it? Do I want him? Does he want me? Monogamy is work! But you do the work and it's good again." Wow! And the 38-year-old shared her thoughts on not wanting to put a label on her sexuality, too: "But I think people like Miley [Cyrus] … I feel like people are just less inclined to be labelled now, which I really like. That's where I was always coming from. Just, leave it alone. I just wanna live my life. I don't need you to put me in a box or to figure me out or to figure out what I am. Cos I don't know yet. And I never say never…" The starlet also spoke about how different she is now as a mom: "Other people's parents wouldn't let me come over when I was a kid. I was the shithead. No one wanted their kid anywhere near me. I was the runaway, I was the fuck-up, I was the one that had the mouth, I was always in trouble. And now, moms are like: ‘I love that my daughter loves you.' How the world turns." LOLz! For real. Read on for even more HIGHlights from the momma of two's interview (below): On pop feuds: "I hate [the feuds]. I despise how readily available they are. That's the only thing I'm a little more thoughtful about." On her MTV VMAs Vanguard award speech being an inspiration, and how daughter Willow was unimpressed: "I think it's beautiful, because it was an experience that my daughter and I had, and if it can make somebody else feel better about themselves, then I'm all for it. But it's sad that it resonated with that many people. I hate how much we hate ourselves, and I hate how young it is now. It's hard to watch... [Willow] thinks I'm a total dork." On getting real in her music: "I started to realize that when I am the most uncomfortable and the most vulnerable and saying the most honest, shameful shit, that's what's getting to somebody else. And I'm basically having therapy and somebody else is getting something from it. That's the only thing that was meaningful to me. I didn't care about winning awards or being on the cover of magazines or people liking me. That was never what moved my needle." On grudges, specifically following her falling out with Linda Perry: "I just don't believe in grudges any more. I'm too tired. I have two kids." On the fierce reaction from her song Dear Mr President, which is about George W. Bush: "I was booed on stage. I had everything but tomatoes thrown at me. I stopped in the middle of a show and said, ‘Do you hear that?' and everyone said ‘Yeah.' I was like, ‘That's the sound of powerlessness'. Fuck you! It was really polarizing, but I think ultimately whether people agree with me or not, they can never say that I've been inauthentic. I'm OK with that because that's more important to me. I don't want necessarily to be agreed with, I want to learn." On picking the name of new album: "That's why I named the album Beautiful Trauma, because life is fucking traumatic. There's natural disasters at every turn and there's kids starving and there's [Donald] Trump and there's all kinds of stuff going on, but there's beautiful people in the world that are having a blast and being good to each other and helping others. Because I can be dark, I try to constantly remind myself that there's more good than bad." Thoughts?? [Image via WENN.].....»»
