TV dads are far from perfect. Sometimes, they’re overbearing, over-protective and a little too nosey. But sometimes, they offer some wicked advice.
Check out this super cut by HooplaHa of some of the greatest advice ever given by TV dads. The dads featured in the compilation are from shows and films from different generations, and even feature cartoon fathers. Yep, even Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin have some wise words to share with their children.
My favourite piece of advice? From John Walton from The Waltons: “Show your woman she’s loved once in a while. A woman will put up with an awful lot if she knows she’s loved.”
Performing at the Emerson Theatre in Hollywood early Thursday morning, the singer ranted to a crowd about how to treat a woman…and of course, the results were not pretty.
In his rant, the 23-year-old said:
“Every guy in this building has said one thing to their female … If you’re not an insecure n—-, and you let her have fun with her friends, I applaud you. But you gotta say that one thing to her, and I made this s–t up. [sings] Don’t make me have to tell you again, that that’s my p—y baby! It is mine, baby, babe, mine. So you better not give it away!”
As horrifying as this sounds, Brown continued with his proclamation with, ”So every person in this motherf—– building, if you got a bad b—h you better say that to her. Cause she might f–k another n—-.”
Yikes! So much for trying to make an effort to gain everyone’s respect again.
Brown, who called the infamous 2009 Grammy’s incident where he beat Rihanna “the deepest regret of my life, the biggest mistake,” is probably the last person on Earth that should be offering advice on how to treat women.
As someone who is “trying” so hard to improve his image, he needs to be really careful with what he says. But alas, none of this is doing anything to help his case.
Oh, and by the way, women can speak for themselves on how to be treated. We don’t need a man telling others how us females want. We are human beings, not objects.

I can’t believe I’m already in my second semester at Suffolk University in Boston. I feel like I just graduated high school last week.
My living situation was crazy in the sense that I live in a suite with four other roommates and when you throw five girls who don’t know each other in one room together, there’s gonna be problems. Girls can be cruel and fight about anything. One of my roommates ended up moving out and another barely ever comes home. But I ended up becoming best friends with my other two roommates so everything worked out in the end.
I’ve learned a lot along the way and I hope some of my experiences can help prospective students, confused about where to go.
1. Figure out whether or not you are a commuting or a dorming type of student.
Dorming and going away to college isn’t for everyone. A lot of people like to commute to school from home because it is usually cheaper than paying for housing and because it also gives you more time to do other things at home like keeping a job.
Personally, I decided to give dorming a try because I was ready to live on my own for a while. And it does have its ups and downs sometimes but I’m loving it.
2. Get in your applications as soon as possible!
When I was applying for college, I got all my applications in really really early. And guess what? I got accepted into all of them. Sending in applications long before the deadline really does help.
3. Pick a school you know you’re gonna LOVE.
If you already know what you want to major in, that’s great! First look at schools that have great programs for your major. And then after that, that’s when you start looking for schools in the location you love, tuition, population, and all that fun stuff.
4. Surround yourself with people who are going to make you happy.
College is a fresh start and an opportunity to meet new people. Don’t become friends with certain people just because you want to be “cool.” Then you’ll just end up trying to impress your “friends” all the time when in reality, you should just be yourself around true friends.
5. Don’t buy your books in advance Read more…
Not only is Amy Poehler smart, lovely, hilarious and charming, she’s also a really AMAZING advice-giver!
In the latest episode of her online series called ”Ask Amy”, Poehler helps a 15-year-old girl named Ann who’s having trouble finding a guy who likes her.
Poehler’s advice? Let go, and love yourself first.
I couldn’t have said it any better.
Amy, YOU ARE A QUEEN. There should be more role models like you.
If you’re having a bad day, this video might give you the perspective you need. BuzzFeedVideo edited together clips of seniors sharing what they’ve learned over the years: don’t be envious, don’t be jealous, forgive people and SMILE. Even though we hear this type of advice all the time, sometimes we have to be reminded because it’s so easy to fall back into a slump.
Yeah, old people really know what’s up.
I can’t really relate to this (since I’m a girl myself), but how does Bruce Jenner do it? He’s basically surrounded by woman in his family 24/7. Not only does he have a daughter from his first marriage, a step-father to Kris’ daughters from her first marriage (Kim, Kourtney and Khloe), and Kendall and Kylie (with Kris), he must have a ton of responsibilities under his belt.
The former Olympian was in studio with Ryan Seacrest the other day, where he was asked (FF to 1:54) what happens when a “new man” enters the family. HINT: Kim + Kanye= Kimye. As soon as Bruce hears the question, he clenches his teeth into a tight smile and it looks as though he doesn’t want to say what he really feels.
Bruce played it safe and said, “I have to back up, I have to accept their decision, and I watch it very closely.”
Everyone gets a squeeze
During a press conference in Asia, a fan asked Justin Bieber for a hug. Since she was quite a distance away, he told everyone to do one big air hug! [ghostofyous]
Have a break, have a BritKat!
Nestle made limited edition BritKat bars. With all the British invasion going on in North America recently, these things would fly off the shelves. I wonder if they end up giving you an accent? [at0mic]
Newest member of royalty
Scott Lord Disick became a part of royalty in an authentic knighting ceremony (after obvi purchasing the title). He said, ”Becoming royal is going to give me the respect I deserve.” Can you take him seriously? [gottalovebeingafangirl]
While a lot of girls are secretly wishing for the One Direction singer to father their babies, Harry Styles has been warned by his father not to get any girls pregnant.
In an interview with British People, Harry’s father Des Styles warned his son to protect himself while dating.
“I said to Harry, ‘Just make sure you don’t get anyone pregnant.’ If that were to happen, it would really screw things up big time. There’s nothing I can do to stop him doing things anyway. From a One Direction aspect, it wouldn’t be great for all sorts of reasons. Still, I don’t think it would bother him too much if he did get a girl pregnant. He would be a responsible parent and just get on with it.”
While it’s a good thing that Harry hasn’t gotten any pregnancy scares yet, I do have to warn him. Even though Justin Bieber didn’t have anything to do with Mariah Yeater, Harry could still be hit by a crazy fan claiming to be the mother of his child!
But on another note, do you think Harry Styles would make a good father?
What better way to receive life advice than from middle aged men?
In Rookie Mag’s “Ask A Grown Man” feature, funny screenwriter and director Judd Apatow provides his wisdom on some of the more pressing questions young women of today may have including gossip, kissing and physical attraction.
He’s slightly awkward, but at the same time it’s ever so endearing.
When he’s asked by a girl whether or not she should change the way she is for a guy, he offers: “You should never change yourself under any circumstances because you know what? You’ll always be you. But you’ll be you acting crazy trying to act like somebody else.”
He then goes on with a jingle about the importance of being oneself (“The most important person in the world is you, it’s you!”) and tells girls to raise the standards because “cool people will like you for who you are.”
You tell em’ Judd.
Seeing that One Direction is probably the biggest boy band on the planet at the moment, it would probably be no surprise that Directioners can get a little bit crazy.
On a recent stop on their tour in Australia, 1D’s Niall Horan told Digital Spy that some girls can react too over the top.
“You can see girls getting too excited and they start crying or worse. In a lot of these countries they don’t get a lot of gigs to go to, so when they get to see their favorite artist, they take full advantage of it.”
He then went on to say, “Obviously the excitement builds up too much for some on the night and they get a bit…crazy. Sometimes I’ve seen some stuff that’s a bit too much!”
Thankfully enough, the Irish lad has some tips for fans waiting outside the venue for hours.
“Sometimes they’ll queue outside a venue for ages for us in the freezing cold. Queuing tips for fans: wrap up and bring food!”
Do you guys think Niall is telling his fans to ease up on the fangirling (or fanboying)?
Honestly, I’m going to the Toronto concert in a couple of days (no shame in that!) and if the fans get a little too crazy and over-the-top, I will not be one happy camper.
Let them live and and enjoy life!
Joss feels Gaga’s wardrobe might overshadow her actual artistic ability.
She tells CYinterview.com, “I know the shock value is good and gets people to watch you, but actually (Gaga) can sing songs and she can play piano and it just feels like (her look) might overshadow what talent she does have.”
Well Joss you might be right, however things look like they are working well for Gaga as is.
Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone, has decided to rear his head in the media again!
It’s been three years since his tell-all book about his sister was released, and the siblings haven’t spoken since. Now that he’s ridden that wave for as long as possible, he’s decided to open up about Madonna’s love of younger men.
“I guess if she continues to date all these much younger guys, it could start to look creepy. But I think that a lot of Madonna’s emotional needs are met by taking care of her children; these boyfriends must really be like a kind of distraction for her. She certainly isn’t following societal values, but then again my sister never has and probably never will either.”
Hmm… we’re not the biggest Madonna fans, but at least we know we can’t tell her who to date!
Maybe you should keep your mouth shut, Chris!
“Like, the best way to get a guy to like you would be to actively ignore him. I was filled with advice! I’d tell my friends things like, Don’t accept that apology! That isn’t sincere! Or He hung out with his ex-girlfriend? Get rid of him. But love is never that simple,” she tells Allure in the magazines latest issue.
“Now I’m finally getting the idea it’s the one thing I don’t need to have a strategy for. I can only write the material I know, which is what happens to me,” she adds.
