The Internet has not stopped buzzing ever since Justin Bieber announced that he wants to be a father. The news sent teenage girls all over the world into a frenzy, with each of them hoping to be the lucky one who will “produce” Baby Bieber.
Girls, get a grip.
First of all, yes, Justin wants to be a father but hello, it’s not any time soon! The 17-year-old singer told Women’s Wear Daily that he would like to start a family when he’s in his mid-twenties.
“Well, by 25 or 26, I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family … I want to be a young dad,” he was quoted as saying.
The revelation doesn’t come as a surprise to many as Justin’s parents were also very young when they had him. The apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree … well, unless Justin was an “accident” baby.
The teen sensation also stated clearly that he is not thinking about starting a family soon: “One thing – I’m not looking to get married now,” he said in the interview.
Sharm says: You gotta wait a few more years girls. At least until his voice breaks.
Toasted and roasted
In Charlie Sheen’s altered mind (thanks to years of substance abuse), he is a winner. And guess what? The crazy actor’s proclamation may not be that absurd after all.
In last weekend’s taping of Comedy Central Roast (in which celebrities get to poke fun at each other), Charlie kinda proved that he’s not a loser … a sore loser, at least.
The former highest-paid actor for a TV series was fired from the Two And A Half Men show which re-launched his failing acting career a few years back (and which now stars Ashton Kutcher), and the roasters didn’t let him forget that easily.
They made fun of him mercilessly and the actor just laughed and smiled throughout the teasing.
Comedian Jon Lovitz said, “How much (cocaine) can Charlie Sheen do? Enough to kill two and a half men”, while roast master Seth MacFarlane (the man behind Family Guy) introduced the actor as “a man with a big heart, because it’s been dangerously enlarged by cocaine use”.
Taking all the teasing in stride, Charlie later said in his speech that he understands just how lucky he is to have people who still want him around.
“It was only when the smoke cleared I realised just how lucky I am, because even after all that, I still have a family that loves me,” he said.
Charlie added: “This roast may be over, but I’m Charlie Sheen, and in here (touching his chest) burns an internal fire. I just have to remember to keep it away from a crack pipe.”
Sharm says: Charlie may have lost his mind but it’s good to know that he still has his sense of humour.
Off the market … again
How long did it take for George Clooney to get over Elisabetta Canalis, his gorgeous girlfriend of two years? Well, just over a month, apparently. The couple broke up in July and a few weeks later, rumours surfaced that the actor was already seeing former wrestler Stacey Keibler.
Yeah, George and a former wrestler. Deal with it.
And as if to confirm this news, the couple were seen together at the Toronto International Film Festival at which George debuted two of his movies, The Ides Of March and The Descendants.
While many say that this relationship is not serious – and that Stacey is just a rebound girlfriend – there are others who claim that she may also be the one for George.
Sharm says: Hmph … how can Stacey be the one for George, when that person is right here?
Many celebrities use their Twitter accounts to share their joy, sadness and basically everything about their lives. So did Ashton Kutcher (one of the first few celebrities to get a Twitter account) but one particular tweet from him last Sunday has landed him in hot water.
The actor tweeted: “This (is) without a doubt the greatest day of the year! Hello football my old friend. Let’s us mingle for the next 5 months.”
On a normal day, it would just be another tweet, but unfortunately for Ashton, Sunday marked the10th annivesary of the 9/11 tragedies in which many people lost their lives and loved ones.
Realising his mistake, Ashton then tweeted: “I got mad respect for the people that suffered in 9/11. Pls don’t twist my enthusiasm. … Hindsight … Yeah, that was probably a poorly worded tweet.”
Sharm says: Tsk, tsk. Check your Tweets before you click “Send”, people.
