Celebrity Gossip For The Week Of November 16th
Kicking off this week’s celebrity gossip, Modern Family actress Ariel Winter is lashing out at the Internet in the wake of comments made regarding pictures she recently posted in which she is with her two nieces. For some strange reason, the picture of the three of them in bathing suits on a boat was inappropriate in the minds of many of her Instagram followers. The controversy surrounds the fact that in some of the pictures she posted women’s legs had words written on them like “provocative.”
Winter then went on to say that what a female wears does not indicate what she is asking for (i.e. sexual activities.) She said females choose what to wear in order to express themselves and they don’t deserve any negative consequences stemming from what they choose to wear. Winter has also recently slammed the idea of body shaming, saying women should support each other and make each other feel beautiful.
Who knew that an innocent photo with my nieces would turn into this? The height of a girl’s skirt or whatever she is wearing for that matter, does not imply what she is asking for. It sickens me to think at 17 years old, a photo of myself with my nieces is suggesting that I’m “asking for it”. I typically never give power to the mean things people bravely say behind their computer screens on the Internet, but this is for the girls who are constantly bullied whether it be online or at school.. You are not asking for anything because of what you are wearing- you are expressing yourself and don’t you ever think you deserve the negativity as the consequence to what you are wearing- YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Celebrate you and don’t let anyone’s comments allow you to think less of yourself. Us girls have to stick together!!!!!! A photo posted by Ariel Winter (@arielwinter) on
Christina Aguilera recently hosted a party for the Verizon Hopeline Program in West Hollywood. The party was to help raise awareness of the cause of domestic violence. During the party, Aguilera was asked what she thought of the budding romance between Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani (whom she has worked with as a judge on NBC’s The Voice,) and she said that they are good people who deserve happiness.
Though fans seem to love the idea of Blake and Gwen dating, there has been much speculation as to what ended Gwen’s marriage to Gavin Rossdale. A source that knows Gwen and Gavin has stated that the reason they divorced is because Gavin cheated on Gwen with their family nanny. The family reportedly shared an iPad on which the couple’s maid found explicit photos of Gavin and the nanny as well as explicit conversations between them and showed the evidence to Gwen, who traced it back to Gavin’s cell phone. There has been no confirmation as to whether or not this is true.
Even though they are a brand new couple, Blake and Gwen are shooting down rumors that they are already expecting a baby together. Using Twitter, Blake told all of his followers the rumor is untrue. He also quoted Brad Paisley when he said the more the media gets his name out there, the more money he commands in Hollywood.
Still nursing a presumably broken heart, for the first time in years Justin Bieber has chosen to skip attending the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show. The reason he chose to skip it is that the show booked his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez to perform a number. During a recent interview, Bieber also said that over the course of the past year he has gained more confidence. He cited staying out of trouble to avoid making the news as a turning point for him. In another interview he recently gave, Bieber said that the media has always held him to different standards than all other celebrities thanks to the perception of the brand his name represents. He said the media ripped him apart because he started out as a wholesome pop star.
In other Justin Bieber news he has announced that starting in March of 2016 he is embarking on a U.S. tour that will include 58 performances throughout Canada and the United States. The final concert of the tour will take place in July of 2016 at NYC’s Madison Square Garden.
