Odds and ends: Bieber Monkey, Littlest Pet Shop

Well one thing KINDA leads to the other, but let's start with the Bieber Monkey... You know the one that was confiscated because Bieber didn't have the legal documentation regarding the Monkey... Justin Bieber has one month to show the Paperwork, or else... The monkey will go to a shelter where they will treat the monkey and nurse it so it can live in monkey society without being a socially awkward capuchin monkey... In any case the Bieber will be fined. Personally I think the Monkey will be a lot better in the shelter. Bieber's hectic lifestyle will harm the monkey... At least he didn't leave the monkey with Lil Twist...

Speaking of pets and stuff; I've been watching a bit TOO MUCH of Littlest Pet Shop... (Full Rant coming soon) They also have a monkey... and a dog that looks like Twilight Sparkle.

That Blythe girl sounds TOO MUCH like Rainbow Dash...

Back on Bieber... Jada Pinkett Smith, defender of the Bieber is now on a crusade against people "dehumanizing" celebrities and that they are being "bullied"... Well, Miss Mommy of the Year, wasn't your 14-year old son, the Underage kid whose entrance to a club in London was forbidden that caused Bieber's "Worst Birthday Ever" crap? What kind of Irresponsible parent let's their kid go to a club OVERSEAS when he's way under the legal age to enter said club?

But I think I'll dissect and Overanalyze Mrs. Pinkett-Smith's post:

Are we bullying our young artists?

How can we ask for our young stars to have a high level of responsibility if we are not demonstrating that same level of responsibility towards them?
This last week, I had to really evaluate the communication in regard to our young artists in the media. I was trying to differentiate cyber-bullying from how we attack and ridicule our young stars through media and social networks. It is as if we have forgotten what it means to be young or even how to behave like good ol' grown folk. Do we feel as though we can say and do what we please without demonstrating any responsibility simply because they are famous? Is it okay to continually attack and criticize a famous 19 year old who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about as he carries the weight of supporting his family as well as providing the paychecks to others who depend on him to work so they can feed their families as well? Does that render being called a cunt by an adult male photographer as you try to return to your hotel after leaving the the hospital? Or what about our nine year old beautiful Oscar nominee who was referred to as a cunt as well? Or what about being a young woman in her early twenties, exploring the intracacies of love and power on the world stage? And should we shame a young woman for displaying a sense of innocence as she navigates through the murky waters of love, heartbreak, and fame? Are these young people not allowed to be young, make mistakes, grow, and eventually transform a million times before our eyes? Are we asking them to defy the laws of nature because of who they are? Why can't we congratulate them for the capacity to work through their challenges on a world stage and still deliver products that keep them on top. We all know how hard it is to keep our head above water, even in the privacy of our own homes let alone on the world stage. Imagine yourself, at their age, with the spotlights, challenges and responsibilities. Most of us would have fallen to the waste side before we could even get to a crashed Ferrari, a controversial romance, several heart breaks, or an Oscar nomination at NINE. We WISH we could have had the capacity to accomplish HALF of what they have accomplished along with ALL these challenges they face. But...maybe THAT'S the problem...we WISH we could have or even...we WISH we could.

Happy Sunday.

OK let's start with her opening Statement:
No, we are not. "Bullying Celebrities" is a ridiculous concept. Oh we're bullies cause we call Justin Bieber or Taylor Switf names? So, with all their busy schedules they check every internet site just to see what John Q. Public says about them? So, saying Bieber Sucks is hurting them? Puh-Lease! I'm pretty sure that Poor Little Justin wipes away his tears as he races his Ferrari, or gropes girls at exotic locations. Now We DEMAND them to have a High level of responsibility for various reasons:

-Their fame is influential to our young ones. Whether they wanted to or not, they became Role Models and they SHOULD act accordingly.

-They are still members of our society and they should behave within the parameters of the Law. Just because they are Celebrities, they should act like they are ABOVE THE LAW.

And here we go: It's not that we're attacking or mocking them because we forgot what is like to be young or because we forgot how to be respectful as adults. When John Q. Public messes up, he learns the consequences of his mistakes and has to deal with some jabs taken at his expense from HIS Social Circle. Since he's John Q. Public and not famous, the circle is pretty small. Justin Bieber chose to stay in the spotlight, therefore EXPANDING his social circle, due to his notoriety/fame. Sadly, THIS is one of the issues that stars have to deal with the price of Fame. Sure, it's nto pretty, but it is what it is.

And here's how I'll twist the argument: Is it OK to act like you're untouchable or above the law, by smuggling a Monkey without the proper papers, groping girls, spitting on people, trying to have 14-year old kids enter a nightclub, or have your "entourage" vandalize other people's property and grope young girls?

Now on the whole calling the little girl a "cunt" I agree with her, THAT was uncalled for.
But the whole Rhianna and Taylor Swift Issues, like with the Bieber, I disagree. How is it OUR Fault that Rhianna dresses very inappropriately, was in an abusive relationship AND Returns with the guy who hits her!? Or Taylor Swift making ALL of her relationships a huge public Spectacle just to break up and write a new single. Is it MY fault that she changes boyfriends as much as she changes her underwear? NO! If she wants to do so, she CAN! The thing is that if she wasn't trying to hog the Spotlight with each relationship and breakup, we wouldn't BE talking about it!

Aside the little girl whose name escapes me at the moment, the other 3 involved in Jada's rant SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS!! Oh wait! We should Congratulate them, according to Mrs. Pinkett-Smith because we are JEALOUS!! Jealous of them! That's why we "attack" these poor celebrities!

The real question is: Why should we give them a Carte Blance?

According to Jada Pinkett-Smith We should congratulate
Justin Bieber for this inappropriate behavior.
