''When I was at school and wasn't having a great time or when music wasn't going very well, I would eat... eating would make me feel better, when I felt lonely I would eat. If someone calls me a 'f-----' it's like, 'I am gay and I'm proud to be gay', so there's no issues. But if someone calls you fat, that's something I want to change. That's something I can change so that affects me more."
--Sam Smith explains why he prefers cruel remarks about his sexuality over cruel remarks about his weight.
OK, Sam, or how about this: how about it's not OK on any level for someone to say those things about you? Why do you have to choose which ignorant insult people throw at you? Answer: you most certainly do not. Any kind of insult based on someone's body is unacceptable, just like any kind of insult based on someone's sexual preference is unacceptable. There are not varying degrees of wrong here. They're all terrible.
Just be you, Sam. That's all you need to do. Don't even worry about all those dreadful naysayers. You are fabulous enough, all by yourself.

We all know that the unspeakably disgusting Chris Brown and the glorious Rihanna were once involved with each other before it all ended with a felony assault, and we all know that, despite that, they were later involved with each other again. Their relationship has been nothing but a disappointing whirlwind of disappointment and sadness, and today, we have to face that one more time.
Here's this song they did together called "Put It Up." It was recorded a couple of years back but it was never released ... until now. Well, it wasn't released so much as it was leaked, but regardless of how this song came to us, its horrors are many.
The first line of this song, the very first line, is "baby, ain't no need to be scared of me." It goes on to some really gross sexual stuff, like "I'ma write your name with my tongue on your back" and something about "all the late night Skype sex." But one of the lines from the chorus? "Promise it'll be all right." Really, Chris? You promise?
No more, you guys. Please, no more. We don't need this relationship to have another round, and we don't need any more pesky reminders like this that it happened in the first place. It just needs to be completely over now. For good.

OK, so this wacky, marijuana-themed mess right here featuring Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Joe Jonas: it's pretty terrible, right? And no, it's not some sad artistic attempt by Joe Jonas to become relevant again, and no, it's not the latest art from Miley Cyrus, either. This is actually something that Demi Lovato posted on her Instagram. The very same Demi Lovato that has been clean and sober for a few years now. Kind of weird, right? Here is her reasoning:
In honor of our former escapades, I thought you'd like this to remember your first blaze.. Happy #420
She tagged just Joe, and also used the hashtag #disneyhighclassof09.
It's just that it doesn't seem like a very good idea for someone who takes sobriety so seriously to post something like this. "Happy 420" does not sound like something that would come from a professedly sober person's mouth. This dumb photo seems to be glamorizing something that was part of a very hard time in Demi's life, and sorry, but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Aww, look how sweet, Selena Gomez went down to Mexico and had some water-themed fun! Doesn't that look just delightful? She looks like she's having a lot of fun, and like she's really happy, and how could you not love that? And, you know, sure, she's got that thing going on that a lot of women do when they have on tight, wet clothing, that thing that looks similar to a certain desert animal's appendage. It's completely natural, no shame there. It's probably happened to all of us at one point or another. That doesn't take away from the hotness though, and it doesn't take away from our appreciation of Selena and those photos. Not one little bit.
Love you, girl, and congrats on the happiness!

Taylor Swift is not a national treasure -- she's a universal treasure, for she is so lovely and so special that her greatness cannot be contained in one country, let alone one world. And that is precisely why this video of Taylor accepting the Milestone Award at the American Country Music Awards hurts so good. Well, that, and the fact that the award is presented to her by her mother, Andrea Swift, who Taylor recently revealed is battling cancer. That adds a good bit of pain, too.
So hey, how 'bout them emotions?

"My desire to cheat on Kurt made him suicidal. ... I never, never cheated on him, but I certainly thought about it one time in London."
--Courtney Love, still promoting the heck out of the Kurt Cobain documentary, "Montage of Heck."
We could go on and on about the unfairness of this statement, but here's the condensed version: Courtney Love's pretty much a terrible person. To claim blame for someone's suicide is selfish at best, and self-centered, narcissistic, and delusional at worst -- not to mention extraordinarily insensitive to your child ... the one that your late husband fathered; the one that you self-reportedly drove to suicide.
How must that feel to know that your mother thinks she drove your father to suicide because she didn't want to honor their marriage keep it in her pants?
There's so much wrong with this whole entire circumstance ... much like many other things that come out of Courtney Love's mouth ... and it's a damn shame that poor Kurt isn't around to throw his two cents in. What a God-awful mess.

Christina Aguilera's back ... is bigger than ever.
Xtina appeared for her baby daddy Matt Rutler's recent birthday celebration, and showed off one of her (many) best sides. That side, however, is looking pretty voluptuous as of late, and while Christina's nearly always had a curvy figure, peep this photo ... which was taken just about 8 weeks ago, and girl was just as thin as she is now:
Baby sure has back ... and seemingly more of it these days. Let's just hope that it's more pasta and bread than it is ... well, a more unnatural means of curviness -- because frankly, we're over the world making women (and men) feel like they have to go to extreme measures in order to augment their bodies.

We'd ask how Kylie Jenner grew such a big bum over the last year or so without putting on any noticeable weight anywhere else, but the point is just moot ... and not so pointed -- more like unnaturally robust and round. There're no edges to that thing whatsoever.
Honestly, we're starting to think of this thing as the Lord Voldemort of asses -- we shouldn't talk directly about it, and we shouldn't look right at it, and most of all, we should begin referring to it as "That Which Should Not Be Named." It's like that thing just apparated out of nowhere.
... Come to think of it, maybe instead of "That Which Should Not Be Named," we should start calling Kylie Jenner the "Prisoner of Asskaban" ... because frankly, that thing's beginning to overtake her body.
Check out the gallery below to see before and after pics of Kylie's rounded rump. It's mind-boggling at its best, and ... well, you-know-what at its worst.
