Justin Bieber Strips Binds Up & Peter Berg Slams Caitlyn Jenner’s ESPY

caitlyn jenner espy awards stirring speach knocked by peter berg 2015 gossipCaitlyn Jenner took the stage at the 2015 ESPY award to accept the Arthur Ashe Courage award.

Supported by her six biological children (Kylie, Kendall, Brody, Brandon, Casey and Burt Jenner), her mother, and her three stepchildren (Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian), Jenner glowed as she accepted the award honoring her courage during her recent gender transition.

Lastly, she offered her support to other transgender people, especially those who aren’t able to receive the support she has.

Caitlyn later revealed in an interview that she knew Arthur Ash and recalls “[sitting] out in the audience on many occasions, and [thinking] to myself, ‘Boy, What if someday I could make a difference in the world and do what I’m doing? I wonder if I’ll ever get that?’ Tonight was the night.”

Caitlyn’s courage wasn’t the only thing that made waves at the 2015 ESPYs. Her beautiful, white floor-length Atelier Versace gown was also a winner of the night. The long gown featured long sleeves and a deep neckline, with ruching at the waist.

Many are comparing Caitlyn’s gown to the one Angelina Jolie wore at the New York premiere of her 2010 movie Tourist. This isn’t too much of a surprise considering Caitlyn got help from stylist Jen Rade, who also styles Angelina.

Caitlyn joked about her new exploration into the fashion world, saying:

“…I’m putting myself in high pressure situations – competing in the games, raising a family, but I’ve never felt more pressure than I have in my life that I have in the last couple of months. Picking out this outfit – OK girls, I get it. It was exhausting. And next, the Fashion Police. Please be kind on me, I’m new at this.”

So far Caitlyn’s fashion choices have impressed…which I think can partially be due to being surrounded by her fashion maven family. Her style has shown to be classic and elegant.

Don’t worry Caitlyn, I am sure the Fashion Police will be singing your praises!

peter berg slams espn caitlyn jenner 2015 espy awardsThen, of course, there are going to be the naysayers and filmmaker Peter Berg took to his Instagram to put a passive aggressive meme comparing Caitlyn Jenner winning the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to a soldier who lost both his legs. If Berg had done his research, he would have seen that ESPN gives out the Pat Tillman Award for soldiers who have done heroic deeds. Arthur Ashe was a legendary sports figure in the world of tennis who dedicated the rest of his life to raising awareness about AIDS, and the spirit of this award in his name has been more for sports figures dedicating their lives to help others.

“One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs. Guess which man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the ‘Arthur Ashe Courage Award’ by ESPN?” the text read. “Yup,” Berg captioned his post.

Yup.

Gadson, who was in the U.S. Army for 15 years, lost both his legs to a roadside bomb while serving in Operation Iraq Freedom. He’s now a motivational speaker and actor, appearing in Berg’s film “Battleship.” He played in the Army’s football team from 1985 to 1989.

Berg wasn’t the only one chastising ESPN for choosing Caitlyn Jenner. NBC’s Bob Costas was also critical of the decision.

“It strikes me that awarding the Arthur Ashe Award to Caitlyn Jenner is just a crass exploitation play — it’s a tabloid play,” he said on “The Dan Patrick Show” radio program in June. “In the broad world of sports, I’m pretty sure they could’ve found someone — and this is not anything against Caitlyn Jenner — who was much closer actively involved in sports, who would’ve been deserving of what that award represents.”

Both on the cover and an inside spread, Bieber shows his darker side in the magazine.

Shirtless in most shots (surprise, surprise!), Bieber dons black leather pants, a black leather eye mask and bright red fingerless gloves.

Cupping therapy being a form of acupuncture that uses suction to mobilize blood and energy flow around the body. Kind of a weird shot, but I guess it is attention grabbing.

Bieber is once again reunited with Martha Stewart, who roasted him on Comedy Central’s Roast of Justin Bieber. Martha interviews Bieber for the magazine.

Oh, and his drink of choice is 1942 tequila (which retails at $140/bottle).

He also talked about his new music, which is “very personal.” He says it will tell people “where [his] heart is.” He hopes he will be able to teach a lesson through it and ideally inspire others.

In addition, there has been recent speculation of him being in a relationship with Hailey Baldwin (although both Bieber and Baldwin have shut down this claim).

Justin tells Martha that his current love is his little brother, who is staying with him for a week.

“Not a girlfriend at the moment, no” responds Bieber.
