Canadian Tennis Star, Genie Bouchard Stays True To Her Word
My source tells me Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are looking for a place together. I guess they’ve been talking to a realtor friend who is quietly looking for properties for them and constantly sending them listings. She’s going to spare no expense. Apparently Selena wants a big backyard where they can host get-togethers with friends, and she’d love a pool so she can go skinny-dipping with Abel.”
If the idea of having sex with one person for the rest of your life strikes you as ridiculous, you're not alone. Here are eight celebrities who've spoken out against monogamy:
1. Scarlett Johansson. The 32-year-old actress, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, made headlines this week for coming out and saying she doesn't believe monogamy is "natural." "I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it's a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing," she told Playboy. "I don't think it's natural to be a monogamous person. I might be skewered for that, but I think it's work. It's a lot of work, and the fact that it is such work for so many people—for everyone—the fact of that proves that it is not a natural thing."
2. Shailene Woodley. In an interview with Elle magazine in 2014, the Divergent star admitted she doesn't believe monogamy is incorporated into our chemical makeup as humans. "I just haven't met anyone where I was like, 'Wow, I could definitely see myself spending a season of my life with you,'" she said. "I don't even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever."
3. Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith. In an interview with Howard Stern in 2015, the actress said she gives her husband all the freedom he wants. "I trust that the man that Will is a man of integrity. He's got all the freedom in the world, and as long as Will can look at himself in the mirror and be OK, I'm good," she said, adding, "You gotta trust who you're with, and at the end of the day, I'm not here to be anybody's watcher. I'm not his watcher. He's a grown man."
4. Ethan Hawke. The actor came out and admitted he doesn't think cheating is a major issue. "People have such a childish view of monogamy and fidelity. 'He's cheated so he's bad, she's cheated so she's bad,' as opposed to a recognition that our species is not monogamous," he explained. "To act all indignant, that your world has been rocked because your lover wasn't faithful to you, is a little bit like acting rocked that your hair went gray."
5. Cameron Diaz. Though she's now married to Benji Madden, in 2014, the actress questioned the idea of monogamy and marriage. "A lot of people chase after it because they've been told, 'This equals happiness.' They chase it, they get it, and they find out, 'Why did I think this was going to make me happy? I'm miserable!'" she told InStyle magazine. "I don't know if anyone is really naturally monogamous. We all have the same instincts as animals. But we live in a society where it's been ingrained in us to do these things."
6. Hugh Hefner. It's no surprise that the Playboy mogul doesn't believe in monogamy, and when talking about the Tiger Woods scandal in 2009, he explained why. "Marriage is just a convenience," he told E! News. "It's very nice for raising kids, but the notion that monogamy lasts forever is a wish!"
7. Emma Thompson. She's been married to Greg Wise for nearly 14 years, but that hasn't stopped the actress from weighing in on the topic of monogamy. In a 2013 interview, she explained, "Monogamy is an odd state, and actually it's an odd state for women. I think that we're locked into certain ideas and certain romantic ideals that have shaped our thinking about relationships for some time." She continued, "And I do sometimes wonder about whether there are alternatives, and about whether our fury and rage and disbelief and horror about infidelity is quite realistic."
8. Tom Ford. The famous designer has been with his partner since, basically, forever and married him in 2014. However, he's always been honest about monogamy. For example, in an interview with Arena, he said "I think that monogamy is artificial. I do not think it's something that comes naturally to us...The relationship I've been in for 18 years—I don't even want to get into this because he's going to read this and I'm going to be in so much s**t!"
During his appearance on Ellen yesterday Adam Levine gushed about his and wife Behati Prinsloo's daughter Dusty Rose. He called his daughter "unbelievable," and gushed that he is so in love with her.
During his visit Adam also reflected on what it was like for him to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last Friday. "That's such a big thing that I didn't even dream of that one," he admitted. "It's so far from the realm of what is possible in my mind. Super crazy, can't believe it's actually there, it's bad**."
Just eight weeks after giving birth to her third child, Katherine Heigl is ready to expand her brood. In fact, she's already broached the subject with her husband Josh Kelley. "I’ve already tried to have this conversation, but it’s so funny--at eight weeks, he's like, 'I'm not talking about this right now!’”
Kesha's long-running court battle with Dr. Luke has taken another ugly turn. Emails between the musician and producer reveal Dr. Luke criticizing her weight and thoughts about lyrics. In one email, Luke writes, "A-list songwriters and producers are reluctant to give Kesha their songs because of her weight,” while another message finds him criticizing her for breaking a juice fast by drinking Diet Coke and eating turkey. Dr. Luke also reportedly told Kesha, “I don’t give a s**t what you want. If you were smart, you would go in and sing it,” after she objected to the lyric “You see us in the club sip sippin bub” in her song “We R Who We R.” The emails come on the heels of court papers filed this week, in which Kesha’s lawyer writes that the musician wants to “be free from her abuser and rebuild her physical, emotional and mental health."
Canada tennis star Genie Bouchard kept her word and went on a blind date with a guy from Missouri last night. During the Super Bowl game Genie tweeted that she knew Atlanta was going to win. A fan named John Goehrke responded to her by writing "if patriots win we go on a date?" and she responded, "Sure." Well we know what happened next, the Patriots won. Genie Tweeted that she would stay true to her word. Genie flew John to New York yesterday and treated him to courtside tickets to a Brooklyn Nets game. Nice!
Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich has revealed that the show’s tribute to George Michael was originally supposed to include performances from Beyoncé, Rihanna and James Corden in addition to Adele. However, according to Adele, “[The family] didn’t want a tribute at first, and they came back and were very specific that it be me.” Ultimately, Adele collaborated with Michael’s representative David Austin on the visuals for the performance.
If you could take a trip and have a celebrity tag along with you, who would you choose?
Hotels.com recently asked 8,400 people what they thought, and of MALE celebrities, Tom Hanks is #1, with 32% of the vote. George Clooney is second, followed by Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman, and Justin Timberlake.
Jennifer Aniston is the most popular choice for a female travel companion . . . she has 29% of the vote. Jennifer Lopez is second, followed by Ellen DeGeneres, Selena Gomez, and Beyoncé.
In the poll, you couldn't just pick anyone . . . there were choices. So that’s why the list is so boring.
The survey also looked at the celebrities we'd LEAST like as a travel companion, and the results have restored my faith in America.
There isn't a full Top Five . . . but Kanye West (38%) and the Kardashians (36%) are the least popular.
During a Tuesday appearance on The Talk, Khloe Kardashian revealed that she loves living in Ohio with her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson. She says everyone in Cleveland is very nice and she even loves the snow. She was born and raised in California so for her snow is super fun – she especially loved having a white Christmas. Mind you she has been warned that the novelty will wear off.
Carlos Santana is backpedaling on the comments he made about Beyoncé. Santana said in a Facebook post, “I would like to clarify a comment that was reported when I was doing an interview for some upcoming shows in Australia & New Zealand. My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammys. My comment about Beyoncé was regretfully taken out of context. I have the utmost respect for her as an artist and a person. She deserves all the accolades that come her way. I wish Beyoncé and her family all the best.”
