Wife Shoots Husband In The Head Because She Didn’t Like His Tone of Voice

LAWANDA BROWN

Source: Nassau County Sheriff’s Office / Nassau County Sheriff’s Office

Yes you read that correctly. Men need to watch how they talk to their women or get dealt with.

On Tuesday, May 29 police say a Florida woman shot her spouse for talking to her in what she believed to be in an off-color manner.

Lawanda Brown told authorities the couple ran a consulting business together. That day her husband had asked her to do a Google search. When she communicated her results to him is when his tone reportedly set her off.

“While she was searching for templates, Mrs. Brown stated that she could hear a tone in her husband’s voice that he was unpleased with how she was fulfilling his request,” Sheriff’s Detective Mark Murdock detailed in the arrest report.

From there things got heated but Brown was unsure of the specifics of what followed. “Mrs. Brown said she wasn’t entirely clear on what was going on, ‘It was all a blur,’ and Mr. Brown started walking out the loft,” Murdock wrote.

Her husband Tony Brown was found laying in a pool of blood with a bullet wound to the back of the head. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital. A 38 revolver was found in the bedroom. Lawanda Brown is on $ 500,000 bond.

How to Apply Cologne the Right Way, Because You’re Doing it Wrong

A lot of men tend to treat cologne as an afterthought. It’s that thing you spray on as the punctuation on the end of getting ready for the day or night, right before you grab your keys and walk out the door. But it turns out that this is the worst possible time to apply on your cologne. In fact, you should be spraying it when you’re completely and totally buck naked.

Daz Dillinger’s Dogg Pound 4 Life Movie Hits Snag Because Suge Knight

Daz Dillinger‘s ambitions of making a biopic, Dogg Pound 4 Life, just hit a major snag. Suge Knight and others, including record label eOne, want a piece of the action, but the rapper ain’t trying grease their palms. 

Reports TMZ:

The DPG vet who’s spearheading the movie broke the bad news to us at LAX. The casting and script are humming along, but Daz says the hangup is maybe the most important part — the music!

You can tell Daz is PISSED — he drops a few profanities — because several parties, including Suge, are trying to block him from using his music in the flick. He insists he owns the rights, and he’s ready to fight for them.

“Dogg Pound 4 Life” would pick up where “Straight Outta Compton” left off … focusing on the rise of Death Row Records, which got folded into eOne Music when Suge had to sell.

And you wonder why the Straight Outta Compton biopic took years to go from idea to reality?

The Best Designer Deodorants: Because Breaking a Sweat Can Be Stylish

designer deodorant

When better than fashion month to test-drive designer deodorant? Granted, antiperspirant sticks are not the most glamorous topic of conversation this time of year, but you’d be surprised by how many fashion editors want to hear about them. “Wait, what does that mean?” asks one when I tell her about the weeklong assignment. “Oh, tell me what you find out,” says another.

First of all, it means exactly what it sounds like: deodorant with designer labels. Who knew brands even make them? But they do, as a pretty standard component of their beauty businesses. In this case, we’re talking Donna Karan Cashmere Mist, Acqua di Parma Colonia spray, Valentino Uomo, Carven Le Parfum, and Tom Ford Neroli Portofino—each arriving beautifully packaged and surprisingly gender neutral fragrances. As for whether or not they work, well, I hate to spoil the surprise, but the deodorants function basically as deodorants. I guess that’s the good news. They could leave me stinking up Spring Studios. But they don’t. They all do their job, and so, in the same way there are hundreds of red lipsticks but you swear by only one, partiality in designer deodorant comes down to personal preference.

There are, however, some nuanced differences. Karan’s Cashmere Mist, for instance, is white and chalky and rubs off on my cherry red Creatures of the Wind tank top. When I tell this to a friend who regularly heads to the gym with Cashmere Mist in her bag, she shares that besides genuinely liking its powdery scent, using it makes her feel “like the kind of person who really has her shit together.” So there you go. Tomayto tomahto.

Carven’s version comes in a pale pink bottle and, like the Acqua di Parma, is a spray, which I find a little awkward. I accidentally spritz it into my eye. Once I perfect my aim, its smell is so overtly floral that wonder if I’m just misting perfume under my arms and in an hour, I’ll be scrambling to reapply. But after a 12-hour day and a hot, steamy, jam-packed Alexander Wang after-party, I’m happy to report I’ve yet to sweat through my silk Crippen top.

My favorite is Tom Ford, primarily because I covet the Neroli Portofino scent. It makes me feel a) like one of Ford’s Glamazons and b) like I’m on the Amalfi coast, not waiting for the A train. Luckily, like the others, it too keeps me dry and odor free and, even better, because it’s transparent, it poses no danger to my Dries van Noten blouse.

Of course the big question here is, Yeah but what do they cost? That’s fair. Ford’s version is $ 50. Which is a little much considering I’m used to shelling out less than three bucks for Tom’s of Maine at Trader Joe’s. The others hover around $ 25 to $ 35—still more expensive than my go-to but not nearly as prohibitive as I feared. In fact, when you think about it, it’s about the cost of a fancy tube of lipstick.

Sex, Blood And Rock n' Roll  Immortal Dilemma is the hottest band in the Las Vegas vampire rock scene. They draw insatiable fans from around the globe, thanks to a supernatural attraction called Bloodlust. Tristan craved such an opportunity to fill his empty mortal life, and now he has eternity to earn his place along the legends of rock n roll debauchery.  Callie always feared that Tristan’s excesses would get him into trouble, but she never thought they’d lead him to immortality. To reconnect with him, she must weave her way through a world not only she had no idea existed, but does not welcome her.  Blade turned down a spot in Immortal Dilemma after learning what he must sacrifice for that lifestyle. He finds Callie a refreshing change from the girls in the vampire rock scene. When Callie drags Blade back into the world of Immortal Dilemma, his resistance drives her into the waiting arms of Tristan, who shows her the true meaning of Bloodlust.  But the very things that Callie fights so hard to save are the very things that fight to destroy her.

Rick Ross Sued For $55K Because He Didn’t Tweet Enough

Rick Ross had one job. But since Rozay didn’t tweet about a Super Bowl party that he was hosting enough times, he is being sued for at least $ 55K. 

Reports TMZ:

Conexts is suing Rick for the Jan. 30 event that was scheduled to go down at the Scottsdale Mall Amphitheater. According to the docs, Ricky Rozay agreed to do some heavy duty social media promotion for the party and concert.

The company says he was supposed to do DAILY social postings for 2 weeks leading up to it — but only did ONE post. Conexts says it was crucial for the event’s success for Rick to reach out to his 13 million followers.

Rozay didn’t have a social media manager to handle that?

For its trouble, Context is seeking the $ 55K it paid Ross plus damages. Meanwhile, Ross’ TL on Instagram is looking rather steady.

NEW YORK—According to sources throughout the commercial aviation sector, the nation’s airlines will begin installing awkwardly placed bumps in every airplane seatback this week because it reportedly brings great pleasure to them. “Over the next four to six months, across our entire fleet, we’ll be rolling out seats with an irritating array of lumps and ridges to painfully jab our customers in the back, and we couldn’t be more delighted about it,” said United Airlines CEO Jeff Smisek, speaking on behalf of all international, regional, and low-cost carriers, every one of whom admitted to deriving immense joy from watching their passengers squirm and search in vain for a tolerable position. “Let me make clear that these seats will be incredibly uncomfortable, and there is nothing more gratifying than making the experience of simply sitting during one’s flight an excruciating ordeal.” Smisek noted that for an …

Caitlin Stasey Says A Magazine Pulled Her Interview Because She Wouldn’t Pose Nude

There’s nothing wrong with a woman baring her body on the cover of a magazine, just ask Kim K. or Miley or Olympian Amanda Bingson. But when a woman is told to get naked for a photo shoot and doesn’t want to — and then the magazine pulls her feature — that’s a problem.

Just ask “Neighbours” and “Reign” actress Caitlin Stasey: The native Australian was supposed to grace the cover of Fairfax Media’s magazine Good Weekend, but says the publication dropped her interview once she refused to take her clothes off.

Through a series of tweets, Stasey explained to fans what apparently went down with the Good Weekend photoshoot.

On Friday, Stasey told The Huffington Post that it was not the concept of nudity she rejected, but how the magazine handled the situation. “Nudity is not inherently sexual, it isn’t shameful and doesn’t even need to be powerful,” she said. “But what was asked of me was highly stylized, highly sexualized imagery of me in panties, orchestrated by a man who never asked my permission and then disregarded my request to have the photos they would be taking of me, actually reflect me.”

Stasey added that she was under the impression the feature was “a story about me, about my work, about my world view,” and that she would not allow the magazine or its editors to proceed with “designing my message and using my body as a prop to incite interest and circulation,” she said.

The magazine’s editor, Ben Naparstek, told ABC that he believed Stasey had, in fact, agreed to be naked in the photos. Stasey later shared emails the editor had sent to prove that she actually had not signed off on a nude shoot.

Stasey tweeted a screenshot of an email she says she received from the magazine informing her that “the paper did not want to spend the budget on a photo shoot if the concept that they had envisioned wasn’t going to be used.” 

In recent months, Stasey had been vocal about her frustration with the objectification of women. She founded Herself.com, a website that empowers women to reclaim their bodies by photographing them naked, but in a non-sexualized way.

“While no woman should ever have to justify her desire to stay clothed, it’s imperative that we recognize the distinction between empowerment and objectification,” Stasey told HuffPost. “Empowerment is when the subject is in control of the situation/imagery, and objectification is when the subject is coerced or exploited to fuel someone else’s means.”

Although Stasey was photographed in the nude for her website, she made clear on Twitter that that doesn’t mean she will strip at anyone’s beck and call — and certainly not Good Weekend’s. “The issue isn’t the photography itself but the expectation, the entitlement and those working under the assumption that I’d be comfortable posing naked for a publication purely because I had appeared naked previously,” she said. 

And, for some ~feminist bonus points~ here is the awesome meme that Stasey made — feat. Naparstek, the dude who apparently assumed Stasey would pose nude, even though she says she never agreed to do so.

“While no woman should ever have to justify her desire to stay clothed, it’s imperative that we recognize the distinction between empowerment and objectification,” Stasey told HuffPost. “Empowerment is when the subject is in control of the situation/imagery, and objectification is when the subject is coerced or exploited to fuel someone else’s means.”

Although Stasey was photographed in the nude for her website, she made clear on Twitter that that doesn’t mean she will strip at anyone’s beck and call — and certainly not Good Weekend’s. “The issue isn’t the photography itself but the expectation, the entitlement and those working under the assumption that I’d be comfortable posing naked for a publication purely because I had appeared naked previously,” she said. 

And, for some ~feminist bonus points~ here is the awesome meme that Stasey made — feat. Naparstek, the dude who apparently assumed Stasey would pose nude, even though she says she never agreed to do so.

Woman Rants About Ocean Dangers Because It’s The ‘Shark’s House’

This is a wholesome, God-fearing, shark-fearing, bear-fearing woman.

Veronica “Pooh” Nash Poleate posted this video to her Facebook because she has a dire warning for the people of Earth: Stay out of the ocean. As she explains, the ocean is the “shark’s house” and “he has the right to eat you when you’re in his house.”  

“When chickens come in my house, guess what?” You know how this goes. 

Her advice doesn’t stop at sharks, though. Poleate also insists that you stay out of the woods. “Don’t go fooling around with the bears.”

This women is humanity’s greatest protector. Daily videos would be fine with us. There are other dangers in the world that need her attention.

9 Things You Need To Know About Dating Someone Going Through A Divorce, Because You’ll Likely Have To Interact With Their Ex At Some Point | Bustle

The older we get, the more inevitable it’s going to be we date people who already have a marriage behind their belt.

Andrea Cammelleri’s Parking Ticket Tossed Because Of Missing Comma

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) — An appeals court has agreed with an Ohio woman who said her parking citation should be tossed because the village law was missing a comma.

Andrea Cammelleri (kah-meh-LEHR’-ee) says she shouldn’t have been issued a citation in 2014 based on the wording of the law enacted by the village of West Jefferson.

The law lists several types of vehicles that can’t be parked longer than 24 hours, including a “motor vehicle camper,” with the comma missing between “vehicle” and “camper.”

Cammelleri says her pickup truck did not fit that definition.

The village says the law’s meaning was clear in context, but Judge Robert Hendrickson of the 12th Ohio District Court of Appeals says in last week’s ruling that West Jefferson should amend the law if it wants it read differently.

Because America: Pro-Confederate Flag Rallies Sparked In Southern States

While most sensible Americans were celebrating the bold actions of North Carolina activist Bree Newsome and the take down of the Confederate Flag at the South Carolina Statehouse, others decried the moment. Over the weekend, several pro-Confederate Flag rallies kicked off across the Deep South and don’t look to be letting up anytime soon.

As observed by WIS10 reporter Chad Wills, dozens of individuals decided to gather at the Statehouse in Columbia, S.C. with the flag of the moment in tow while singing the questionable “I Wish I Was In Dixie” song. There was even an intense conversation between a Black man and some of the flag marchers that immediately made that uncomfortable turn into racist dogma when the White individual told the man to “go back where you came from.”

More of the same took place on the capitol steps in Montgomery, Ala. and in several towns across Florida. Because of the intensity of the debate over the flag, the issue isn’t going to go away quietly in the night.

And despite sensible arguments in favor of the flag’s removal from government structures and the like, supporters are clinging to their right to fly the symbol.

In related news, Seven Scribes writer and NWAP podcast co-host Fivefiths tweeted a similar display of Confederate flag pride happened in his hometown of Rocky Mount, N.C. on Saturday (Jun. 27)

Check out some of the images from the pro-Confederate Flag rallies across the South on the following pages.

Cops Fed Dylann Roof Burger King After Arresting Him Because He Was Hungry

Law enforcement being lauded for the apprehension of Dylann Roof need to reflect on militance used on this case versus other national newsmakers.

Shortly after his arrest on the morning of June 18 for the murder of nine innocent Black people in Charleston’s Emanuel AME church, Shelby, North Carolina police officers fed Dylann Roof Burger King because the poor sap hadn’t eaten “in a couple of days.” On the house, of course.

Via Charlotte Observer:

Shelby police Chief Jeff Ledford told the Observer on Friday that authorities found a .45-caliber handgun in Roof’s car.

In Shelby, the FBI handled Roof’s initial questioning, Ledford said. Shelby police’s lone conversation with the mass-murder suspect was about food. Earlier in the day, Roof had bought water and chips at a south Charlotte gas station. Now he was hungry. Police bought him food from a nearby Burger King, Ledford said.

“He was very quiet, very calm. He didn’t talk,” Ledford said. “He sat down here very quietly. He was not problematic.”

Just so we’re clear, a suspected–and obviously guilty–murderer who prompted a statewide manhunt deserved “to have it his way.”

Via Yahoo:

“He had promised us that when something big happened, that we would be contacted and would be asked to be there,” said Strickland Maddox, one of a handful of pastors who answered the chief’s call to action after Roof’s capture.

“Organized chaos,” Ledford later called it. “Because there were so many moving parts.”

Including feeding the unexpected arrestee.

“He hadn’t eaten, they said, in a couple of days,” Maddox told Yahoo News. “They bought him a hamburger. They just sent out for it. I guess one of the police officers went and picked it up.”

Ledford confirmed that this purchase was made.

“He did have something to eat while he was there, and he was secured in cuffs the entire time,” the chief said.

Remember, Freddie Gray got arrested with a switchblade and couldn’t even make it to the police station with his life. Meanwhile, Roof confessed to gunning down people in a church with racist motives and gets his stomach’s whims satisfied, as if the prison wasn’t serving slop later on that day.

10 Things To Remember When You’re Going Through A Breakup, Because Your Brain Is Super Foggy And Now Is Not The Time To Trust Your Own Thoughts | Bustle

I’m not sure there’s a word in the English language that accurately describes the sadness after a breakup. Grief, the feeling reserved most commonly for death, is part of it. So, too, is suffering. Agony, remorse, self-doubt. Breakups are traumatic. They are, of course, heart-breaking. They will make you reevaluate everything you think you know, and force you into new thoughts and experiences that are often incredibly distressing. But there is also a silver lining in every breakup.

Franklin Graham Moves Money Out of Wells Fargo Bank Because Of ‘Moral Decay’

Franklin Graham is calling on Christians everywhere to boycott LGBT-friendly companies after Wells Fargo bank released an ad that clashed with his personal beliefs.

On Friday the prominent evangelist announced that the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), of which he is president and CEO, is moving its accounts from Wells Fargo to another bank due to the bank’s recent ad featuring a lesbian couple.

Graham also posted on Facebook, encouraging Christians to use their spending power to take a stand against LGBT-friendly companies. “Tiffany’s started advertising wedding rings for gay couples. Wells Fargo bank is using a same-sex couple in their advertising. And there are more. But it has dawned on me that we don’t have to do business with them,” the evangelist wrote.

Have you ever asked yourself–how can we fight the tide of moral decay that is being crammed down our throats by big…

Posted by Franklin Graham on Friday, June 5, 2015

“At Wells Fargo, serving every customer is core to our vision and values,” Wells Fargo spokesperson Christina Kolbjornsen told The Charlotte Observer on Monday in response to Graham’s post. “Diversity and inclusion are foundational to who we are as a company. Our advertising content reflects our company’s values and represents the diversity of the communities we serve.”

Religion News Service writer Eliel Cruz noted the irony of Graham making his statement on Facebook, a company that openly supports gay marriage. Facebook is just one of many pro-LGBT companies, the long list of which includes Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Nike and countless others.

Graham has long spoken out against homosexuality and same-sex marriage — and appears to be putting his money where his mouth with this recent announcement.

In a March 2013 interview with Charlotte Observer, the evangelist went on a tirade against same-sex couples adopting, saying, “You can adopt a child into a marriage, but you can also recruit children into your cause. I believe in protecting children, OK? From exploitation, all exploitations.”

Graham is no stranger to forcing beliefs on people, so perhaps he was speaking from experience. But whether he’s planning on abandoning Google and Facebook to promote the anti-gay cause stands to be seen.

Iggy Azalea Cancelled Tour Because She Needs A Mental Break

Speculation has been running rampant about why Iggy Azalea decided to outright cancel her “Great Escape” tour. The Australian and just engaged rapper has issued a statement clarifying why the tour is off and she chalks it up to needing a “mental break,” not low ticket sales. 

The Grand Hustle rapper issued a statement explaining her decision to Seventeen magazine—versus, ya know, a Hip-Hop publication or website.

“I’ve had a different creative change of heart. I want to start totally anew, and if I stayed on my tour, that would mean I wouldn’t even be able to start working on that until after Christmas,” she wrote on Seventeen.

She continued, “On top of that, mentally, to be honest with you, I just feel I deserve a break. I’ve been going non-stop for the past two years, nearly every single day. I’m not in a bad place. I think sometimes when you say you need a mental break, people are like, ‘A mental break? Be sure you don’t have a breakdown because you’re sad.’ No, not necessarily. It’s very emotionally draining to be on all the time and going all the time, planning all the time. It’s a lot, and it’s tough. I need a break from everything to just enjoy what I worked so hard for, and I don’t really feel like I’ve had a chance to do that. I need a break to figure out what I want my sound to progress to, and I need a break to figure out how I want my visuals to progress.”

This is where we point out that Iggy Azalea has a grand total of one album and this is precisely the time to power through since fans are so fickle. No shade, though.

Check out her full statement over at Seventeen.

Ducklings Rescued Using Hooters Fry Basket, Because Of Course

You know what they say about Hooters — great wings.

The breastaurant chain doesn’t serve duck wings, but it services ducklings in distress! A Hooters in Lakeland, Florida was instrumental in rescuing six ducklings trapped in a storm drain on Sunday, Lakeland Fire Department officials told The Huffington Post.

A Hooters manager called Polk County Animal Control and the fire department to report that the little duckies couldn’t get out of a storm drain outside the restaurant. But rescuers had a problem too: The half-dozen, adorable victims were deep below a grate, and kept falling through their would-be saviors’ dog-catching net. The quick-thinking Hooters manager grabbed a fine-mesh basket used for frying and gave it to firefighters, who connected to a pole to catch all six Mallard ducklings.

All of the cuties are safe — and none of them were fried.

The Lakeland Fire Department posted images of the duckling rescue to its Facebook page.

“There is no sign of spring more fruitful and heartwarming than fresh flowers or plucky little yellow ducklings,” the department wrote. “All six ducklings were unharmed and reunited with their mother in a nearby pond shortly after the rescue was complete.”

Man Says Voices In His Head Are Because Microchip Was Implanted In His Body — Not Mental Illness

Nick, 35, says he started being tormented by voices in his head about five years ago. “A friend of mine drugged me … I woke up in a hotel room. I was pretty much left for dead. During that time when I was unconscious, I believe he put a chip in me. I believe there is a chip somewhere in my body. I’m not sure where.”

The first time the voices spoke to him, Nick remembers them calling him a “lowlife,” and they’ve since told him to kill himself, Nick says. “I suspect that hackers are using government satellites to be able to insert voices into my head,” he explains.

He is adamant that he is not mentally ill, though his family believes that may be the cause. “I’d rather have schizophrenia. It wouldn’t hurt near as bad,” says Nick, a husband and father. “If I had my choice between schizophrenia or what I’m going through — electronic harassment — I would choose schizophrenia.”

In the video above, Nick explains what it’s like living with the voices in his head, and that he’s even tried to barter with them by leaving $ 20,000 in his mailbox, telling them to take the money but leave him and his family alone. Can Dr. Phil get to the bottom of Nick’s torment? Watch more from Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil.

Josh Hartnett Lost Out On Another Role Because He Passed On ‘Batman’

Josh Hartnett regrets passing on “Batman,” but not for the reason you may think.

Speaking to HuffPost Live on Wednesday, the actor explained that he’d met with Christopher Nolan while the director was casting for the 2005 installment, but he’d actually hoped to discuss his next film, “The Prestige,” instead.

“[‘Batman’] was not what I was interested in,” Hartnett recalled. “I really wanted to convince him that when he did the ‘The Prestige,’ maybe hire me.”

“And then, of course, as time went on, he ended up hiring the guy who he hired to play ‘Batman’ to play in ‘The Prestige,'” Hartnett continued, referring to Christian Bale.

The experience served as a teachable moment for the “Penny Dreadful” star.

“I realized much later that this is a relationship business,” said Hartnett, adding that he “regret[s] not forming a relationship with a great filmmaker [Christopher Nolan].”

“That was not necessarily where my head was at the time,” he concluded.

Adrien Broner Detained By Police Because Of His Outfit [VIDEO]

Trouble seems to find Adrien Broner, even when he’s innocent. On Thursday night (April 30), the boxer was detained, but not arrested, by Las Vegas Police after a security guard curved him because of his outfit.

TMZ reports:

People in Adrien’s camp tell TMZ Sports … the 3-time world champ and 7 members of his posse went to Tao nightclub in the Venetian and plunked down $ 11k for a table. They say the host took the money and let them in, so they took the escalator up to the club and then things went south.

They say a security guard stopped them and said they had to leave because they weren’t dressed properly, claiming their jeans and shoes were a deal breaker. Adrien got pissed and said it was hip-hop night and Fabolous was performing, so they were not only dressed appropriately but others were wearing the same thing.

The guard wasn’t moved and ordered them to leave. Adrien refused so the guard called the cops.

Police came, cuffed Adrien and took him to a room. His people say police held the boxer for 20 minutes, let him go and then Adrien and his crew left the hotel.

Peep footage of Broner’s arrest below.

John Travolta Says Scientology Is A Target Because It ‘Really Works Well’

During an interview with “Good Morning America” Monday, John Travolta was asked why there is so much intrigue and interest surrounding the Church of Scientology.

“Mostly because it’s not understood,” he responded. “People really need to take time and read a book. You know? That’s my advice. You could read A New Slant on Life, you could read Dianetics. And I think if you really read it, you’ll understand it, but unless you do, you’ll speculate. And I think that’s a mistake to do that.”

The actor attested that L. Ron Hubbard’s religion has worked for him, particularly when coping with the death of his 16-year-old son, Jett, in 2009.

“Sometimes when something really works well it becomes a target,” he continued. “Forty years, for me, I’ve been part — and I’ve loved every minute of it. My family has done so well with it. You know? It’s a beautiful thing for me. I’ve saved lives with it, and saved my own life several times. Through the loss of my son, it helped me every step of the way for two years solid, and here I am talking to you because of it.”

This is the second time Travolta has spoken out following the premiere of HBO’s critical documentary, “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief,” in which he is featured as one of the Church’s biggest celebrity members. Coverage of his and Tom Cruise’s participation in Scientology is juxtaposed alongside former members’ testimonies of alleged mental and physical abuses in the film.

Earlier this month, Travolta told the Tampa Bay Times that he doesn’t care to see “Going Clear” and has no plans to speak out against the Church.

“I haven’t experienced anything that the hearsay has [claimed], so why would I communicate something that wasn’t true for me? It wouldn’t make sense, nor would it for Tom, I imagine,” he said, adding, “So, why would I even approach a negative perspective? That would be a crime to me, personally, to do that.”

John Singleton Drops Out Of The Tupac Biopic Because He Says People Weren’t Respectful Of Tupac’s Legacy

Tupac Shakur’s forthcoming biopic, “Tupac,” has experienced a slight shift as it was announced last week that “Devil In A Blue Dress” director Carl Franklin has been named to replace John Singleton as the film’s director.

According to Variety, the film’s spokesman, Greg Mielcarz, stated Singleton departed from the much-anticipated project -– after exiting in 2012 and returning in 2014 –- due to creative differences. Following the announcement the Academy Award-nominated director took to his Instagram accountto explain why he’s walking away from the developing film for the second time in three years.

Real talk! The reason I am not making this picture is because the people involved aren’t really respectful of the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur. I won’t say much if you want you can read my articles in Hollywood Reporter on authenticity in Black Storytelling … To Pac’s real fans just know I am still planning a movie on Tupac … It doesn’t matter what they do mines will be better… Tupac was much more than a hip hop artist … He was a black man guided by his passions … Of most importance was his love of black people and culture … Something the people involved in this movie know nothing about… Real talk! How you gonna make a movie about a man when you suing his mother to get the rights to tell his story?! They have no true love 4 Pac so this movie will not be made with love! And that’s why my ass isn’t involved ! If Tupac knew what was going on he’d ride on all these fools and take it to the streets… But I won’t do that … I’ll just make my own project. What Yall think about that?!!

A photo posted by JOHN SINGLETON (@realjohnsingleton) on

Singleton worked with the late rapper his 1993 film “Poetic Justice.” During a 2013 interview with Essence, which also commemorated the film’s 20th anniversary, Singleton recalled his fondest memories of Shakur, including his intentions to cast him for the lead role in 2001’s “Baby Boy” which was later fulfilled by actor Tyrese Gibson.

“People always idolize ‘Pac, but he was really just a brilliant yet confused young kid with a lot of fame,” he told Essence. “He had nothing to ground him, no father. He had no one to tell him ‘no’ or ‘just sit down.’ But when you did tell him something, he’d respect you. Right before he passed we just started talking again.”

“I saw him a week an a half before he went to Las Vegas and I told him I’m working on a new movie [Baby Boy, 2001] and I told him that this will be the movie that will get him an Oscar. He said, ‘Anything you want I’m there.’ He was going to be my Robert DeNiro. We were going to grow together. When you see Baby Boy now, his presence and soul are still in that movie.”

Casting for “Tupac” is set to begin in the coming months, with filming beginning later this year.

Because You’re Worth It

Gray hair used to be unfashionable and unforgiving; these days it’s sexy and a signature for many stars.

In case you didn’t get the memo, gray hair is hot. And sexy! Just check out the silver foxes on the red carpet — Diane Keaton, Jamie Lee Curtis and Helen Mirren. You’ll also see fabulous white-haired fashionistas strutting their stuff on Fifth Avenue with a bright splash of red lipstick and a devilish smile. But before you go au natural and kiss your colorist goodbye — or ask your colorist to even out the gray strands with a gray patina that looks au natural, there are some things to keep in mind.

When and why does hair to turn grey?

Hair turns grey because of loss of a pigment called melanin,” says Doris Day, MD, director of Day Dermatology and Aesthetics in Manhattan. “Your hair stops producing the melanin that creates its color. It is mostly due to genes, so if your mother or father had gray hair early, you most likely will too.” Melanin also gives your skin and eyes their color: Dark-skinned and dark-haired people have more melanin than light-skinned people, who may also be blonde due to the lesser amounts of melanin.

For most women, losing melanin can start at any time. Singer Emmy Lou Harris, 68, went gray in her 20s and dyed her hair until she was in her early 40s. When she stopped, her striking white hair, worn below her shoulders, became her trademark.

In the early stages, it’s tempting to dye gray hair to blend in with your natural color, especially if your natural shade is dark. If your hair is light brown or blonde, your stylist may recommend highlights and/or low lights rather than just one tone.

Another option is maintaining a gray or white streak at the temple, where loss of hair color usually starts, and keeping the rest of your hair its original shade. The effect can be dramatic. Think of Susan Sontag or singer Bonnie Raitt.

Brooklyn writer Yona Zeldis McDonough, author of six adult and 24 children’s novels, turned gray in her thirties. “It made me feel old at first,” she says. “Now, I feel it actually makes me seem more youthful.” The transition wasn’t easy. “My kids did not like the gray. Neither did my stylist,” says Zeldis, who wears her salt and pepper hair in a flirty fringed cap that calls to mind Jean Seaberg in Breathless. “If you go gray, you need a really good haircut. I go to Omni Salon in Park Slope.”

At one time, going gray meant going short. Now, anything goes. “Every cut works for gray or white hair,” says Marshall Lin, a stylist at Frederic Fekkai in New York.

If you have more contrast or shadows, then you can get a more layered cut to match your color. If you have less contrast and shadow, a classic, one-length bob style will show off the movement. However, in the end, it is all about your own individual style and personality.

French-born New Yorker Francoise Simon didn’t spot a gray hair on her dark chestnut mane until her mid to late 50s. “I have no misgivings about turning gray,” says Simon, a retired professor of French Literature at Queens College. “It never entered my mind to color my hair. It fits my persona and style. My stylist loves my hair the way it is or at least he pretends to very convincingly,” she says with typical French élan.

“Women with gray hair look authentic,” says jewelry designer Liz Friedman, who is routinely photographed on Fifth Avenue for her iconoclastic fashion sense by Mangue Banzima, founder of QuiStyle.com, a style and beauty blog. Friedman admits to coloring her hair until she was sixty. “I had dark brown hair which started to go gray in my 40s,” she says. “Now, anytime I feel the urge to color it, my stylist refuses to do it.”

Changes in texture

“Gray hair can be more wiry,” says Dr. Day. “It may feel drier because as you age your oil glands do not produce as much sebum.” And here’s the double whammy. When you turn gray, your hair usually becomes thinner. According to Dr. Day, one in three women experiences thinning hair.

The solution? Depending to what extent your hair has thinned, you may want to get an expert cut that makes it look fuller, add extensions or try a medical alternative. The LaserCap, which costs a pricey $ 3,000, uses specific wavelengths to produce very low heat to stimulate follicle growth. But there’s no guarantee it will produce results.

A more common choice is Women’s Rogaine, an over-the-counter product applied directly to the scalp. But a prescription is necessary for a product such as Formula 82M that is twice as strong as Rogaine.

A less traumatic approach is to make the most of what you’ve got. Stylist Marshall Lin recommends Clairol’s Shimmer Lights Shampoo. “It keeps gray and white hair shiny,” says Lin. You’ll also want to keep hair soft and silky by using conditioners. Not just after every shampoo, but a deep conditioner that you leave on for 10 to 20 minutes once a week.

For a glowing finish, try Moroccan Hair Oil or L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Multi-Restorative Dry Oil. Spray-on oils require just a quick spritz and won’t leave a sticky residue on your hands or clothes.

It’s not just what you put on your hair that matters. It’s also what you put in your mouth. “Food rich in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon and dark green vegetables produce sebum, the hair’s natural conditioner, says Dr. Day, who also suggests eating pomegranate, avocado, pumpkin and olive oil.

Makeup to Match

Whether you were a blond, brunette or redhead, when your hair goes gray it’s time to update your cosmetics. You’ll need to step up the brightness of your makeup to avoid looking washed out. When you go gray, eyebrows tend to go rogue. Have them professionally shaped and consult a cosmetician to find the right shade of eyebrow pencil to fill in the gaps. You may want to try one of the lighter shades of Maybelline Brow Drama, a mascara for your brows.

For eye shadow, stick to neutral shades of pearl, gray, taupe or charcoal to complement your hair. Add a bit of lip gloss — yes, lip gloss — on top of your eye shadow for extra oomph.

Along with thinning hair, eyelashes tend to thin out. Use a gray or charcoal eyeliner sparingly on upper and lower lids and finish with mascara on top lashes only. Always use a magnifying mirror when applying eyeliner. The result should be subtle, not obvious. (Cleopatra eyes are strictly for the under-40 set.)

If your eyelashes have all but vanished, try false eyelashes. To avoid the Tammy Faye Baker look, make sure you trim them to a natural length and shape. If you’re unsure how to go about it, ask for a demonstration the next time you’re in Sephora.

You may want to go a shade warmer in your foundation or blush. But keep it soft and natural. Use cream or liquid blush. Perricone MD’s No Blush Blush is a miracle in a bottle. Apply it over your regular moisturizer.

When it comes to your lips, throw that old pencil liner away and apply lipstick straight from the tube. “A red lip is so sexy with gray or white hair,” says Marshall Lin.

We agree!

Should This Woman Get Divorced Because Her Husband Has No Sex Drive?

Below is a comment I received on my website, Divorced Girl Smiling from a woman seeking advice and considering getting divorced because her husband has no sex drive.

I have been married 10 years and I want a divorce. I love my husband so much it hurts to have to tell him I am leaving. We have been fighting for four years now, since my dad died, and even more so for the last year, since my mom died. Mainly it’s because I need more sex and intimacy.

I feel so lost without my parents and I need that human contact and he can’t seem to find it important enough to give it to me. He says he loves me but doesn’t have a sex drive any more.

He is in his mid 40s and healthy. It seems the more I ask about it the more he holds it back from me. I can’t take it any more! We use to make love almost every other day for five years. Then excuses happened all the time. I’m too tired. My hip hurts. Maybe tomorrow. Then that never happens.

I am frustrated and refuse to keep pleasing myself when I am married. If I have to do everything myself, why should I be married?? Help!

When I read something that says “I want a divorce” and “I love my husband so much it hurts” in the same paragraph, my instinct tells me you do not want a divorce. Which is great! People who have checked out of a marriage don’t typically say “I love my husband so much it hurts.”

There are a few things going on here that need addressed, the first being that you are dealing with the death of your parents. That has to be incredibly painful and life altering. I’m so sorry for you. But, I suspect it is playing a huge role in your emotions and wish to divorce. Any therapist will tell you not to make a decision like divorce while you are still mourning the death of a loved one.

Now, about the sex. You really have to find out what the issue is. I do not buy “I have no sex drive.” There is a reason your husband doesn’t want sex. He might feel badly about himself, he might even be depressed. Or, he might be cheating, (I don’t mean to scare you, but it is a possibility).

You need to talk to him. I mean, really talk to him. Ask him in a very nice way. Say this to him: “I love you so much it hurts. You are the love of my life. I want us to be together forever. I don’t want anyone else. I don’t want you to want anyone else. But with that kind of love comes sex, and I want to have sex with you. Often. Like we used to. If you really love me and you want a happy, healthy marriage, let’s please work on this together. I will do whatever it takes, whatever you need. I want you. Forever. Do you?”

The two of you can consider therapy, or he could go to therapy himself. He could also have low testosterone, which is causing his low sex drive, so he could have that checked out with his doctor.

Also, you guys could try spicing things up a bit. Here is part of a comment I received in response to your comment that I thought was great:

What options have you tried so far? Maybe spice things up a little bit… toys, role playing, different times of day, different rooms, or new cities/states, etc. can be a new way of introducing something fun and enjoyable for both of you. Yes, sex can get to a point in a marriage where it is routine and boring, but it doesn’t have to be. There is so much more to a marriage than the bedroom.

In closing, I get so many emails and comments from people considering divorce and their situations are much worse than yours. In other words, yours seems like a marriage worth saving. But the bottom line is, your husband needs to listen to your needs. If he continues to do nothing, you will eventually cheat and/or leave. I truly hope he is smart enough and cares enough to fix it before it gets to that point.

Jackie Pilossoph is the author of her blog, Divorced Girl Smiling, and the comedic divorce novels, Divorced Girl Smiling and Free Gift With Purchase. She also writes feature stories, along with the weekly dating and relationships column, “Love Essentially” for Sun-Times Media local publications. Pilossoph lives in Chicago. Oh, and she’s divorced.

7 Ways to Like Your Body More (Because We’re Tired of the BS)

This post originally appeared on Bustle.

By Rachel Krantz

If there’s one thing that’s become clear to me over the last few years, it’s this: Nearly every woman I meet, work with or assume is perfect probably struggles with her body image. No, we don’t all have eating disorders or even disordered eating habits. But, unfortunately, every woman I’ve ever taken the time to ask has admitted she has an issue with at least one part of her body, face or appearance.

Personally, I came to the disordered eating party a bit late. I had managed to mostly fixate on disliking other parts of myself (see: my personality) until I was 24, when I took a job working the night shift as an editor at a different website. I suddenly found myself under increasing amounts of stress, and (just for extra credit!) in a half-baked relationship with a guy who withheld his affection.

My body understandably freaked out. My stomach felt bloated and tense all the time. When I went to the doctor, she suggested I go gluten-free, which did help somewhat, but created a new problem. Cutting something completely out of your diet can be dangerous, and for me, it led to a cycle of restricting foods that fell into the “bad” category, only to binge on all my “good” foods when I got off work in the middle of the night.

Food became the cause, the reward and the punishment; the funnel through which I attempted to pour control over a job and relationship that left me feeling increasingly disconnected from my body.

Now, just two years later, I view the path to regaining a healthy relationship with my body as one of the most important challenges of my 20s. Therapy, a new job and a new relationship have all been essential ingredients. But the real work? I’ve been teaching myself — deliberately, and in small ways, everyday — to love my body again.

Recovering from an eating disorder, body dysmorphia or any kind of ongoing body image issue is no small task, and professional help should always be sought. But if you’re looking to supplement that help with some small, tangible exercises, I highly recommend using these practices as jumping off points.

Meditate for just 10 minutes a day

2014-07-01-7db78720dd4b01316cb00aa0f90d87b4.gif

For me, meditation has truly changed everything about my relationship with myself. I resisted meditating for a long time, because I thought I was failing at it if my mind wasn’t completely empty. But as I’ve learned more about meditation over the past year, I found out that those thoughts are actually an essential part of the practice. By simply sitting with yourself and focusing on your breath, you are forced to become friends with the voices in your head (and yes, we all have them).

Often, without even realizing it, we have a downright abusive relationship with ourselves. We tend to bark orders, judge and degrade ourselves (sadly, especially as women). By just sitting and attempting to reconnect to the present moment through our breath, we become reacquainted with our our mind and learn to drive it — rather than the other way around.

It’s nearly impossible to hate someone once you truly get to know them. Meditating has helped me foster a kinder relationship with myself, so that when my mind inevitably goes to self-hating places, I actually notice it, because that voice doesn’t sound like the friend I’ve come to know.

To begin, try this exercise: Sit cross-legged and upright. Place one hand on your heart, and the other on a part of your body you tend to fixate on (for me it’s my stomach). Close your eyes and try to cultivate a feeling of love and acceptance — just love and acceptance — for that part of your perfectly imperfect body.

When you feel done, open your eyes, stare softly straight ahead and try to focus on your breath for just five minutes. Don’t alter your breath or get mad at yourself for having inevitable thoughts and feelings come up. Just notice whatever is naturally there. When thoughts arise, note them and then try to come back to your breath.

If intense feelings surface, try to feel where they are in your body. (Where do you feel pain or fear? For me, it’s also in my stomach.) Let whatever feelings you’re having wash over you fully, if only for a moment. Don’t push the uncomfortable away. Instead, let yourself feel whatever it is you’re feeling and then, simply return to your breath.

It’s that simple and that difficult. Do this for five minutes in the morning and five minutes before bed and trust me, interesting things will begin to happen.

Confront your own image

2014-07-01-huffpo22.jpg

When I was feeling my worst, I’d often cast my eyes down when passing my mirror, just to avoid my own image. (Oh, and then I’d beat myself up for being so idiotic, which was super productive.)

One day, when I was really fed up with my mirror-avoidance, I got a crazy idea: What if I made a video of myself on Photobooth and described, to my own face, what I saw? What if I turned the inner mirror monologue out?

Here’s all I did: I turned on Photobooth’s video camera and looked at myself as I was speaking and recording. The result was super weird and kind of cool (who doesn’t like seeing what they actually look like when they talk?), and shockingly, it was also empowering.

I told the camera what I saw and what I did and didn’t like. The results were surprising: What I thought I hated (my stomach) was actually not what I found myself disliking in realtime. Of course, I found plenty of other things to dislike just as strongly, as well as some surprising parts of myself that I found fundamentally OK, even kind of adorable. I realized, once again, that no matter what I “fix” there will always be more parts of myself to change.

By giving voice to my inner critic and making myself basically say it to my own face, a funny thing happened: That critic lost a little of her power. She finally had her chance to say her piece out loud, and though she’s never one to shut up completely, she was able to step aside for the rest of the night.

Be naked more

2014-07-01-241dd390dad00131bfa20eb233c768fb.gif

Oh god, I can just feel my roommates cringing. No, not naked in the kitchen or living room (unless you live alone, in which case hello naked cooking), but in your own bedroom. Since I’ve started sleeping naked, not only do I sleep better (your temperature is better regulated) but I’ve also starting appreciating my body more. When I wake up, I do some naked yoga and stretch in front of the mirror. Laugh all you want, but it’s a great way to greet the day; moving, breathing and confronting my own beautiful, healthy body. I highly recommend it. If you live with a partner, don’t be shy — they will love it too.

Make self-love dates

2014-07-01-a0333cd0dad001316c870aa0f90d87b4.gif

Hey, you’re already naked, right? This is one we women somehow often forget to do, and believe me, it has repercussions. Just think of it this way: Almost every guy out there masturbates regularly. You think the fact that they walk around the world like they own it isn’t connected?

While I’m not much of a morning person, I do believe that making time to connect to your own body in that way (even if you are having sex regularly) is crucial to having a healthy relationship with your body. If you only have orgasms with a partner, you will, on some level, always need to have someone on the outside affirming that you’re sexy and lovable. Masturbating helps you connect with what you want and how damn fine you really are. Make a date with yourself, and if it helps motivate you, consider it exercise — it gets your heart rate up, flexes plenty of muscles and has numerous mental and physical health benefits.

Try a writing exercise

2014-07-01-18939990de080131bfc70eb233c768fb.gif

I’ve found that even if I write for 10 minutes once a week, it can really help me tap into what’s actually going on. If words don’t start pouring out of you right away, try this simple exercise to focus on body image:

First, imagine your inner food critic. She’s the voice that tells you that you shouldn’t have eaten that second piece of cake or that says you look ugly when you’re brushing your teeth or that you would have a partner if you only lost 10 pounds.

Give the pen to her and write out everything she thinks about you and your body. Keep the pen moving for five minutes and don’t edit or stop writing. When you think you’ve run out of nasty things to say to yourself, just keep going until time is up.

When you’re done, hand the pen over to your “inner best friend” and write for five minutes. Your inner best friend is the kindest part of yourself — and not necessarily the voice you should always channel — but she is the other extreme. Keep writing in her voice until time is up.

So, for example, while the food critic might have written “You know you can’t eat that because when you let go you start getting fat,” the sweetheart writes “Eat anything you want! You will still be loved with 15 more pounds.”

Giving voice to both of these extremes may help you meet somewhere in the middle, where your actual opinion lies. Do this exercise with care and some caution, and remember — the critic is just that — a critic.

Don’t make plans on Sunday for a month

2014-07-01-a301ac90dae80131bfaf0eb233c768fb.gif

I got this idea from my friend Natalie, and I liked it so much that I try to do this every weekend now. You’re probably wondering what not making plans has to do with body image. Well, for me, one of the hardest things about recovering a healthy relationship with food has been learning to listen to when I’m hungry again. I found that during my period of restricting and binging I had lost touch with what I really wanted.

Not making plans on Sundays has helped me get back in touch with what I actually want, rather than what I think I should want. When I wake up without plans, I actually ask myself: What do you feel like doing right now? Whereas in the past I would have already formed a list of errands or social obligations for the day, now I just do whatever it is I genuinely feel like doing.

Sometimes it’s sleeping another hour. Sometimes it’s running errands. Sometimes it’s cooking brunch or simply laying in the park all day. I try to follow each urge, moment to moment, and simply act in accordance to what I want to do, without judging myself. It’s incredibly liberating and relaxing, and has not only made my weekends a hell of a lot more fun, but has also helped me communicate with myself on a much more honest level.

View this as a communal struggle

2014-07-01-bf390010dae80131bfb10eb233c768fb.gif

I saved the most important tip for last. Yes, meditating and all of the work you can do on your own is crucial. But one of the most suffocating aspects of struggling with body image is that we all think it’s our own dirty little secret. If you’re anything like me, you probably even feel stupid, guilty or embarrassed of having these “trivial” thoughts to begin with. You may even feel that if you don’t have a full-blown eating disorder you don’t deserve to talk about the ups and downs of your relationship with food and your body.

In fact, you must talk about it — not just for yourself, but also for other women. Talking to your friends about body image, and asking about their own experience, is crucial for destigmatizing what I believe is still very much taboo: Most of us are, on some level, struggling with this.

I’ll never forget one day here last year at Bustle, when we had our first company headshots taken. Looking at the digital images that day, I felt particularly awful about the way I looked. But instead of just keeping it inside, I admitted to my coworkers Meredith and Alex that I was feeling bad — and they chimed in with relief that they had been feeling annoyed about their pictures too. The joy we felt at sharing how we were actually feeling was palpable. So, naturally, we decided to take a whole bunch of flattering selfies on (once again) Photobooth.

I felt not only beautiful, but also empowered: We had taken our own image back.

2014-07-01-7900c0b0ddfe01316cb10aa0f90d87b4.jpg

Talk to your friends about this stuff and you’ll quickly find that they too are probably struggling to figure out what a healthy relationship with their body looks like. After all, things have gotten mighty tangled: Because the language of female perfection has in many ways shifted from “being skinny” to being “healthy,” it can often feel as if we’re the only ones for whom “being healthy” doesn’t actually feel very healthy at all.

Every time we give another woman permission to talk about her experience openly, we reclaim a little power from a society that tells us we should just grin and juice cleanse it.

And that, much like my reflection in the mirror, is a beautiful thing.

Toni Braxton Once Believed God Gave Her Son Autism Because Of Her Past Abortion

In her new memoir, aptly titled “Unbreak My Heart,” singer Toni Braxton opens up about a painful memory from her past.

The 46-year-old Grammy winner wrote about an abortion she had in 2001 and how she once believed God had later punished her for it. “I was suddenly faced with a choice I’d never thought I’d have to make,” Braxton wrote of the procedure. “Amid my major misgivings about abortion, I eventually made the gut-wrenching decision.”

Due to her very religious upbringing — in the memoir the singer says that studying the Bible took precedence over homework when growing up — Braxton began to feel a strong sense of guilt over the abortion. “In my heart, I believed I had taken a life — an action that I thought God might one day punish me for … My initial rage was quickly followed by another strong emotion: guilt,” she wrote. Braxton’s guilt was so heavy that she began to believe that God’s punished her for the procedure by giving her son, Diezel Ky Braxton-Lewis, now 11-years-old, autism. “I believed God’s payback was to give my son autism,” she wrote.

However, the R&B music icon told Us Weekly that she now feels differently about her past. “When my youngest son was diagnosed with autism I feared that I was being punished for my earlier actions. I have since realized that my son is special and learns in a different way.”

I Love My Dog Because He's a Huge Jerk

I was absolutely clueless when my husband and I adopted Bowie. Before he came into our lives, I had no clue what his breed — a puggle — was. What a stupid name, right?

If I had done research, I would find out that a puggle is a ‘designer dog’ (blech) and a combination of breeding a beagle and a pug. Naturally, they get traits from both breeds. They have a beagle’s nose and busybody behavior and a pug’s stubbornness. Great.

My lack of preparation is not necessarily because I was careless. At nine months old, Bowie was going to be shipped back the the Humane Society for a third time. Being suckers, my husband and I refused to let that happen and made the impulse decision that yep, we’re getting a dog now.

We learned about Bowie’s personality pretty quick. When he was younger, he just wouldn’t sit down. He was into everything. The harder it was to get into something, the better for Bowie. While he’s calmed down in his four years, he still never turns down a challenge.

I think the reason why I love Bowie so much is because of his huge personality and independence. He’s always making me laugh and I have yet to find a better cuddler than him. He’s the perfect blend of adorable and attitude.

And then there are the stories. So many Bowie stories. So many that I’ve compiled the top reasons why Bowie is a huge jerk. And I love him for all of them.

2014-05-22-meandbowiebw.jpg

He Humps His Brother Until His Penis Hits the Floor

Bowie humps his brother on a daily basis, but there are times when he humps so hard that his penis gets huge and almost touches the floor. The first time this happened, I freaked out. I had never seen it get that big. I had no idea where the little guy was storing it. It took a while to get back into his body, too. I was so concerned that the next time I took him to the vet, I asked her about it. She just ignored me. I guess this is common in dogs. How would I know, vet!?

He Doesn’t Listen

Bowie knows what “No” means, he just decides to ignore it. He also understands “Drop it!” but just continues to go about his business, chewing a giant hole in the crotch of my underwear. Wait. He does listen, but only when I say “Want to eat?” or “Does Bowie want to go for a run?”

He Eats Poop

Not only does he eat poop, but he especially loves it in the winter when it becomes turdcicles. We’ll look outside to see his head buried in the snow only to come up with with a white face chomping on “snacks.” On special occasions, it will get too cold for him and he’ll bring his snack inside, mid-chew. Gross.

He Harasses Other Dogs

I have the hardest time taking Bowie for walks or runs because as soon as he sees another dog, he goes into psycho-bully mode. He starts barking and yelping so much that it actually sounds like I’m torturing him. He’s like that kid at the mall who screams “You’re hurting me!!” when the parent is pulling on their arm. When this happens to me, we get some pretty dirty looks. People in my neighborhood have even come up to us when he’s behaving and said condescendingly, “Oh. That’s the dog that always barks at my dog.” Yeah. It is. Now move along.

He Outsmarts Me

I never thought I was dumb enough to be outsmarted by a dog. That was until I met Bowie, who is an evil genius. There are dogs who are smart because they are fast learners and listen to commands. And then there’s Bowie, who is too smart for his own good, and my own good. We’ll see him dash under the bed with a sock in his mouth and wonder where he got it from. Oh, it’s from a previously zipped backpack or duffel bag that Bowie learned how to completely unzip. He also knows we can’t fit under the bed very well, so whenever he has something he knows he’s not supposed to, that’s his go-to spot.

He’s Made Grown Men Cry

Two to be exact.

He’s a Beer Snob

We live in West Michigan, where there is basically a microbrewery in everyone’s basement, so we drink craft beer. When we finish the bottle, we let Bowie lick the inside. In the meantime, he’s an impatient little turd, pawing at the bottle and our hands, trying to get at the beer. Except when it’s domestic beer. We learned this when we took him to my dad’s house and pulled some domestic bottles out of the fridge. When my husband was finished with his, he put it up to Bowie, who then sniffed it, let out an exasperated “Pffft!” and turned his head away. We tried it again. Same thing. My dad then brought out a bottle of craft beer and Bowie was suddenly happy.

He Peed on Kids

Our next-door neighbors run an in-house daycare. When it’s nice, they let the kids play outside, where they immediately start feeding Bowie sticks and leaves through the fence. My husband and I have told them multiple times not to do it. I even told them if they did it again, I would walk over and feed them leaves. That worked for about a day. That was until they pissed Bowie off. He was outside one day and the kids were at it again. They fed him sticks first, which he loves. When they ran out of sticks, they switched over to leaves. Bowie wasn’t havin’ these leaves. So what did he do? Only the next logical thing. He lifted his leg toward the fence and started peeing. He peed on the kids. The kids started screaming and running back toward the house yelling, “He’s peeing! He’s peeing!” Those suckers haven’t been to our side of the fence ever since.
