Ben Affleck Reveals That He Completed Treatment For Alcohol Addiction

Image result for ben affleck oscars 2017

For many years it has been reported that Ben Affleck has suffered from addiction issues. In 2001 he spend time at a rehab center in Malibu due to drinking and allegedly other drugs, but since then things had been quiet. He opened up about living his life sober and being a father to his children, things like that.

According to reports Ben’s drinking had started back up again this past year and it put even more of a strain between Ben and Jennifer Garner’s relationship. They have since announced that they are going to try again with their marriage, but it did a number on them.

Yesterday Ben wrote a post on his official Facebook page announcing that he completed another rehab stay where he went just after the Oscars to focus on his health and addiction issues.

I know that there are people out there who are rolling their eyes at this post. Simply because Ben is a celebrity and all of that stuff. Everyone hates celebrities right now in case you forgot.

Personally, I think that this is a big step. Talking about addiction is never easy, admitting you are powerless over something is probably one of the hardest things in the world. He didn’t have to share his story but he did and maybe just by this one post, someone can feel as though they aren’t alone in their addiction and get help.

Good for you Ben for coming out and talking about this. I hope that you continue to find happiness that isn’t at the bottom of a bottle.

Tonight is the biggest night in Hollywood! It is Oscar night and it is going to be incredible. Well let’s be real the Oscars can get pretty boring but I have a feeling that Justin will make the night lighten up a bit.

Timberlake will be performing his hit single “Can’t Stop The Feeling” and it looks like he has some fancy footwork to go into his performance.

Just a few hours before the big show and he gave a sneak peak of at least one of his dance moves for tonight!

Zac Efron Is Definitely Singing In ‘The Greatest Showman’ !

So about a week ago I asked the world if we were ready for the new musical coming out sometime next year called ‘The Greatest Showman’. So far all that we know is that both Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron are in it, there will be singing and dancing, and they are currently filming and posting a ton of pictures on social media about the process.

Well let me be clear about something. We are not ready for this musical, do you hear me? In no possible way are we ready because Zac is singing again. Although he did lip sync in the first ‘High School Musical‘ movie, the boy can really sing. He proved it in the other installments of the HSM movies, he sang in ‘Hairspray’, and one time he sang on ‘Ellen‘ with Taylor Swift. So homeboy  can sing.

A movie full of Zac Efron singing and dancing though? There is seriously nothing better than that in my personal opinion. I am barely ready for this movie because I don’t know if my heart can handle it.

Are you excited to hear Zac singing?

Michael Bublé Announces His Son Noah, 3, Has Cancer

There are few things worse than finding out someone that you love has cancer. I personally don’t have children but that is probably the one of the worst things that could ever be brought on a parents.

Today Michael and his wife Lu confirmed that Noah does in fact have cancer on Facebook:
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”

So far Michael has put all touring on hold to be with his family, and we can all only pray for a quick recovery for Noah.

How Perfect Are David Beckham & Victoria Beckham?

Wow 17 years ago to this day this happened. I was lucky to meet someone who has the same drive and wanted the same things in life. We have created 4 beautiful children and I couldn’t wish for a more loving and caring mummy for them. Happy anniversary, I love you ❤️ (credit)

In my opinion, Victoria and David don’t get nearly enough credit for their relationship. They have been dating since the 90’s and are still together. I mean in Hollywood years, this relationship has been together for an entire lifetime. That’s right, 17 years in Hollywood is a lifetime.

I am not sure about the press in England but I know in America, these two don’t get enough credit so I am going to give them a lot of credit!

They are a couple who has been able to get through the ever changing social media with very little chaos. There was once a rumor that David was cheating with their nanny, but other than that? Nothing. No rumors, nothing. Just the two of them being beautiful and in love.

Congrats on 17 years and I hope you two stay together for many, many more to come!

Carrie Underwood Decides To Start Presidency Run

I’d like to announce my candidacy…this is my campaign team…pretty sure we’ve got this in the bag! 👍🎉🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

I think it is rather obviously that this is a joke but I wish it wasn’t a joke. At this point I would vote for Carrie over anyone who is actually in the race to be president.

Also I know that Carrie is classy and most likely would never throw shade but I am hoping that whole got it in the bag saying she added at the end is because she actually would win at this point.

Carrie for president 2016!

Avicii Announces After 2016 He Will No Longer Be Touring

Hello world,

Thank you for letting me fulfil so many of my dreams. I will be forever grateful to have experienced and accomplished all that I have with the help of the team around me and my beloved fans. Thank you to all my peers in the business for building a new movement that took the world by storm and I was lucky enough to be in the middle of it. Thank you to all my partners through the years who believed in what I have created and wanted to amplify my work to a truly global presence.

First and foremost thank you to my brother and partner Ash, its truly been a crazy run and its only been possible through our collaborative efforts, yin and yang, brother to brother manager to artist. I will always appreciate this road with you no matter where it leads from here. I could write so much more but our journey is far from finished.

Thank you to everyone at At Night, a special thanks to everyone who has been a part of the team since day one and without your hard dedicated work I wouldn’t be here. Thank you especially to Carl Vernersson, Filip Holm, Marcus Lindgren, Victor Lee, Panos Ayassotelis and Diana Baron.

Thank you to the teams of Johnny Tenander, Per Sundin, Max Hole, Neil Jacobson and Joakim Johansson in no particular order. Your loyalty and hard work on the label and publishing fronts have allowed me to always feel like we have had someone backing us in your court, and that has given me the musical confidence I’ve needed. Thank you.

Thank you Robb Harker, Malik Adunni, David Brady, Andrew Mckeough, Rob Woo and Felix Alfonzo – you helped introduce touring to me in as much of a functional way possible for a kid my age and my road could have been alot darker if it wasnt for your personal support at such a crucial point. Thank you Semi Baddredine for all your personal support, talks and help in me growing up. I have a weird feeling i could be dead If it wasn’t for you and I will always love and support you.

Thank you to Ciara Davy, Michael “Curly” Jobson and the MJM team, Harry Bird and Charlie Alves for making my touring years amazing during the best of times and durable during the worst. I hope we will find a way to keep on working together.

Thank you to all artists, musicians and songwriters who have helped me develop musically and personally, the list is long but there is no one I’ve worked with where I haven’t learnt something.

A huge thank you to all my friends in the industry. Thank you Jesse Waits at XS for having been such a huge friend to me and a rock in stormy waters. Also huge thanks in no particular order to Jonathan Schwartz, Austin Leeds, Pete Moutso, Dave Grutman, Noah Tepperberg, Jason Strauss, Sean Christie, Carlos Correal, Rob Fernandez, Eddie Dean, Adam Russakoff, Mike Satsky, Trecia Laird, Lisa Pillette, Marcella Barrett, Zoe Stainsby, Joe Bellioti, Yann and Romain Pissenem, John and Paul in Ibiza, Fricko, Sean, Marcus, Awat, Lucas, Ludde, Calle, Johannes, Filip, Levan, Otto, Oliver, my brothers David and Anton, my sister Linda, My parents Anki and Klas. Thank you to all the ones I didn’t include in this moment. There has been too many people to mention in one sitting that had an impact on me in this industry and Im sorry I’m forgetting some of you. But last but not least thank you to every fan who has ever bought a ticket or snuck in, bought a song or downloaded it, commented on posts or hated at them. Its your thoughts and ideas about the music that helped me evolve and I do owe everything I have to you.

My path has been filled with success but it hasn’t come without its bumps. I’ve become an adult while growing as an artist, I’ve come to know myself better and realize that there’s so much I want to do with my life. I have strong interests in different areas but there’s so little time to explore them.

Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the U.S. with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way. It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I’d been struggling with for a while.

My choices and career have never been driven by material things, although I’m grateful for all the opportunities and comforts my success has availed me. I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist.

I will however never let go of music – I will continue to speak to my fans through it, but I’ve decided this 2016 run will be my last tour and last shows. Let’s make them go out with a bang!

One part of me can never say never, I could be back …but I won’t be right back.

Yours forever,

Tim Bergling / Avicii

P.S. I’ve got a new phone so you can text me re all this +46769436383. Please bare with me I might not be super quick to reply. X

Now this is the way to go out. Write up a post, finish off your year of responsibilities then take a break. I mean you have to give Avicii credit where credit is due. I am not a huge fan of the EDM music that has become popular over the past few years but Avicii brought it to America. He is easily one of the most influential EDM artists in the world.

Good for you stepping away before you felt like a sell out and for deciding there is more to life than making money.

Take a well earned break Avicii, thanks for the badass music.

Wentworth Miller Fires Back At Fat-Shaming Meme

Today I found myself the subject of an Internet meme. Not for the first time.

This one, however, stands out from the rest.

In 2010, semi-retired from acting, I was keeping a low-profile for a number of reasons.

First and foremost, I was suicidal.

This is a subject I’ve since written about, spoken about, shared about.

But at the time I suffered in silence. As so many do. The extent of my struggle known to very, very few.

Ashamed and in pain, I considered myself damaged goods. And the voices in my head urged me down the path to self-destruction. Not for the first time.

I’ve struggled with depression since childhood. It’s a battle that’s cost me time, opportunities, relationships, and a thousand sleepless nights.

In 2010, at the lowest point in my adult life, I was looking everywhere for relief/comfort/distraction. And I turned to food. It could have been anything. Drugs. Alcohol. Sex. But eating became the one thing I could look forward to. Count on to get me through. There were stretches when the highlight of my week was a favorite meal and a new episode of TOP CHEF. Sometimes that was enough. Had to be.

And I put on weight. Big f–king deal.

One day, out for a hike in Los Angeles with a friend, we crossed paths with a film crew shooting a reality show. Unbeknownst to me, paparazzi were circling. They took my picture, and the photos were published alongside images of me from another time in my career. “Hunk To Chunk.” “Fit To Flab.” Etc.

My mother has one of those “friends” who’s always the first to bring you bad news. They clipped one of these articles from a popular national magazine and mailed it to her. She called me, concerned.

In 2010, fighting for my mental health, it was the last thing I needed.

Long story short, I survived.

So do those pictures.

I’m glad.

Now, when I see that image of me in my red t-shirt, a rare smile on my face, I am reminded of my struggle. My endurance and my perseverance in the face of all kinds of demons. Some within. Some without.

Like a dandelion up through the pavement, I persist.

Anyway. Still. Despite.

The first time I saw this meme pop up in my social media feed, I have to admit, it hurt to breathe. But as with everything in life, I get to assign meaning. And the meaning I assign to this/my image is Strength. Healing. Forgiveness.

Of myself and others.

If you or someone you know is struggling, help is available. Reach out. Text. Send an email. Pick up the phone. Someone cares. They’re waiting to hear from you. Much love. – W.M. #koalas #inneractivist#prisonbroken

This is important. Everyone is fighting their own struggles whether you can see them or not. It doesn’t matter if you are rich, poor, famous, unknown, everyone has their own battles to face.

Good for Wentworth coming out and fighting back against body shaming, because it happens to men too. Most people think only women get body shamed, but that’s not true at all. Nobody is free of discrimination. It happens to everyone.

Thank you for speaking out on this topic and giving resources to those who need it.

The LAD Bible has since removed the post and published an apology on Facebook

Wentworth Miller,

We posted two pictures of you last night to our Facebook page, but today we want to say we’ve got this very, very wrong. Mental health is no joke or laughing matter.

We certainly didn’t want to cause you pain by reminding you of such a low point in your life. Causing distress and upset to innocent or vulnerable people is simply not acceptable.

TheLADbible continues to cover how prevalent mental health issues are among our audience, as well as the damaging stigma that surrounds such matters.

We applaud your raw honesty and promise to now cover such matters in the responsible manner that our audience expects.

Responding head-on to our post is something we applaud as it will help others through similar challenges in their lives.

Once again, we got this very wrong, and we wanted to say sorry.
