In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of Hits and Misses. This week, Angelina Jolie undergoes preventative double mastectomy procedure and Chris Brown is scaring the neighbourhood kids with his terrible art.
HIT: Angelina Jolie undergoes double mastectomy to lower her chances of getting cancer
She’s a heroine on and off screen! After discovering she had an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of developing ovarian cancer, Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing either. In an Op-Ed she wrote for the New York Times she wrote, “I want to encourage every woman, especially if you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, to seek out the information and medical experts who can help you through this aspect of your life, and to make your own informed choices.” Brad Pitt, of course, was beside her every step of the way saying that she is “absolutely heroic.”
MISS: Chris Brown scares the neighborhood kids with his crappy art
He can sing, he can dance, but Chris Brown CANNOT paint. The “celebrity” painted fang-bearing goblins outside of his Hollywood Hills home which are scaring the neighbourhood kids. As such, the “bad boy” has been ordered to take down the images within 30 days or else face a fine. While the $376 (USD) fine probably is chump change to him, do you think he’ll take them down out of respect? “”There are scarier creatures on Harry Potter,” he tweeted. “Get a … life!” So, no.
HIT: Gwyneth Paltrow (tries) to cover her tracks, says she was thrilled to be at the MET Ball
Gwyneth Paltrow said she wasn’t going to MET Gala ever again, but she seems to be in favour of it now?! Can’t follow either? In her latest edition of her life and style newsletter GOOP she wrote: “The Met Ball, at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year’s most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different. The theme was ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ and when the house of Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri asked me to join them, I was thrilled to see what they would create with my right fashion hand, Elizabeth Saltzman.” You can never take back what you say Paltrow, but you get props for trying!
MISS: Angie Miller voted off American Idol
I almost cried as I was watching this. Over the past few years, American Idol has been going through ups and downs, and the whole “Minaj vs Carey” saga has turned away more viewers than brought on. After countless auditions and performances, 19-year-old Angie Miller was eliminated right before Top 2, an achievement as we learned she has 40% hearing loss in her left ear, and 20% in her right. What a star! I think even sadder than her elimination, was the fact that she had to sing “Never Gone” right after she found out.
HIT: One Direction’s Zayn Malik gets a manicure!
For those of you that don’t know (if you’ve been living under a rock), One Direction’s Zayn Malik is dating Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards (aww, how fricken cute!). As Zayn was taking a nap, Perrie took it upon herself to give him a little manicure. Who doesn’t love a well-groomed man? She then tweeted Zayn’s lovely nail art to show the world her hidden manicurist skills (a different coloured nail for almost each finger). Edwards, you hit the nail on the head on this one!
MISS: Ke$ha’s reality show hasn’t been canceled yet…
How is this thing still on TV? Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life follows the singer ‘s personal life as she recorded her Warrior album. Don’t get me wrong, I would be lying if I said I don’t dance and hum her weirdly very catchy tunes. I’m just not looking to spend 21 to 24 minutes a week watching her try to decide which garbage bag to wear next.
