Shaun thanks. The year is only halfway through and already we have a fair share of scandals joining me writ now. Brian and Megan dj what's up girl. Thank you. Dj that is your name. Slur. First of all feels like we have a new celebrity apology every week. You begin with the slurs and whether racial homophobe icky think of Bieber right off the bat. The guy you know using the n-word multiple times when he was 15 years old apologizes now. Given that he was 15 do we acwas 15 do we accept the apology? I think a difference being 15 years old and a racist. I don't think he's a racist. It would be stupid to offend the people who have really made his career happen. I do think he's an idiot though. Yes. I was diagnose stupid things when I was 15 as we all do but almost 100 Percy am 100 percent not making racial sluvrments he doesn't get a pass because he was raised in a different generation. I feel bad I think he will be a good story some day. Jonah hill Alec use the same homophobe ick slur but handled the aftermath very differently. Why did Jonah seem more sincere in his apology. Does he get an acceptance and not Baldwin. I don't think anyone should be using the language anywhere but I think Jonah did seem more sincere at least to me in his apology. He seemed genuinely humiliated and emotional. Alec blamed Anderson cooper and like just say I'm sorry. I'm an idiot and teachable moment and he just I don't think Alec. He has done it a few times. Alec Baldwin technically he called somebody a fat head that Jonah hill did not do amaze to go me about Alec Baldwin a grown man who also has a history of blurting things out that he probably shouldn't and should know better at this point. Not only didn't immediately apologize. Said he didn't say it started blaming like he said other people around him and just took no responsibility. Jonah hill that's how you deliver an apology. If you say something dumb like that take responsibility for it immediately and be heart felt about it and I think he was. Also I had no idea that Jonah hill avenues gay activist that he told the world he was. Moving to the biggest brawl of the year we start with jay-z and Solange in the el vai tovrment it was a butte. Everybody wants to know. Still what the heck was going on in there. I think I was obsessed it was finally a crack in the beyonce jay-z very near. Life seemed so perfect in every wait a minute off crazy sister that like yells at you. I have crazy family members that could be me in ab elevator so I gave it gave them a little real. It was totally fascinating. It really was. Like you said. Humanize them in a very brutal way but them at the worst and also I mean I actually have Solange music for awhile it was pretty cool. This for me is. Just saying that her music is really good. It is. El have itor beyonce like moved her gown. That was her reaction. I would have been trying to stochlt I have to move this met gown. Big priority. Then there's brad Pitt. It was attacked on the red carpet by this Ukraine an pranksters. Lunged at the pachblingt I mean. Yes. Somebody did this to me I think he did the same thing to American. I would have been old school angry at him freaking out and gotten security involved this guy should be in jail and he's crazy. I can't believe that nothing happened after the America event because that was, he tried to get under her dress. That was really upsetting. Yochbility I loved that it took the power of branch lean to get this guy in trouble after crazy history of doing this. What the fan the true fans now it hurts them. People want to say hi and support them and one crazy maniac in Italy or wherever ruin it. Angelina will go across and still sign every autograph and brad probably too but you are right. It puts it in jeopardy. To young Hollywood in rehab. Selena entered Selena entered rehab in January. Zack wept last year. And now maintaining his sobriety with aa hats off to sachblingt he handled it very well and very privately don't you think. Yes. I think they both d.think you look at someone like Selena Gomez I don't even know she mentioned why she went. I don't think we know why she went. Exactly. You look at her and somebody like Justin Bieber sounds like she took responsibility for a problem in her life and fixed immediately and Zack Efron same thing. This shows these are 2 people very serious about the contrary and longevity of them and I say yes. Selena Gomez P.R. Update I have no idea she went to rehab. Gwynneth paltrow several sort out of out of touch reality comment that landed her in hot water this year. Has she become the celebrity I guess people love to hate. Yes I talked about Yes I talked about this more. I hate. Take a mom shot. Do you have like a semblance of reality. Xiring your life to sold that's have gone to Iraq and Afghanistan in a war. Really? Very difficult very difficult to leak someone who has a ton of money and zero awareness and also someone who runs a web site that should be called how to be you by me. Really all she's doing is saying like you are living your life wrong. She's an easy easy punching bag because she says silly things completely out of touch. I do feel like the internet hates her. They hate her. They can't get out of her own wait a minute about regular mom I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as difficult of course there are challenges but not like being on set. Just get into that area is almost like takarea is almost like take me out. Firing range. So rude disrespectful. We are still in recession. I don't know. I didn't know who her P.R. Team is. Higher Selena Gomez tr team because she's doing a good job. Yours is doing terrible one. There's something glamorous about about the depressed millionaire. Very sort of what? What is the problem? She's a dlichlt conscious uncoupling my favorite think ever. Are you consciously I'll consciously couple with my boyfriend I love it. Sounds like a tease. A drink before bed. I remember that. Well we have that. That will live. That is up there with wardrobe malfunction. One of those that we have got for you. Thank you very much.
