Sinead O’Connor: I Don’t Want to Spend Time with White People Ever Again!

Sinead O’Connor has been a controversial figure for a few decades, now.

She has recently converted to Islam and goes by Shuhada’ Davitt, but that is not the source of his latest controversy

The issue is a tweet in which she says that she never wants to “spend time with white people” ever again.

Sinead O'Connor converts to Islam

“I’m terribly sorry,” Sinead’s tweet begins.

She continues: “What I’m about to say is something so racist I never thought my soul could ever feel it.”

“But truly I never wanna spend time with white people again,” she writes.

That is such a head-scratcher, but she does offer a strange definition of “white people.”

In parentheses, she writes: “(if that’s what non-muslims are called).”

We don’t claim to be experts in theology, but that word would probably be kafir, not “white people.”

“Not for one moment, for any reason,” Sinead makes clear. “They are disgusting.”

Sinead O'Connor tweets about hating white people

Regardless of her religious adherence, Sinead O’Connor is very, very white.

Converting does not change that, and she’s hardly the only white Muslim — which makes her statement so much stranger.

Unfortunately, that was only one tweet of many.

Sinead followed up her controversial tweet:

“Interesting to see if Twitter bans this when it allows people like Trump and Milbank spew the satanic filth upon even my country,” she wrote.

Twitter has not, as of Wednesday afternoon, done anything of the sort to her tweet.

On top of that, the 51-year-old folk singer seemed eager to get into heated religious discourse.

“How come so called christian and jewish theologians,” her question begins.

She interrupts herself to claim: “(the christian theologians being atheists and satanists actually in practice, though they know it not).”

Sinead continues: “never talk about the smashing of their enemies babies heads on rocks which in all over their psalms?”

What she means to ask is why don’t members of other Abrahamic faiths who claim that Islam is violent because of the Qur’an when their own holy books have similar content.

She then promptly answers her own question. 

“BTW if one IS an intelligent theologian and has taken the journey,” she tweets.

“One would know there is no more talk of ancient violence in the Q’ran as the Tanukh, the Bible, or The sodding Mahabarata,” she writes.

The Tanakh (which stands for Torah, Neviim, and Ketuvim) is the holy book of the Jewish people, known as the Old Testament in Christianity.

The Mahabharata is one of the oldest Sanskrit texts of India, and describes the Bharata dynasty.

“And,” she concludes. “Its ALL EQUALLY IRELLEVANT TO OUR TIMES.”

Which makes one wonder why she brought up old-timey scriptural violence in the first place.

So, there are a few obvious things to unpackage.

Her tweet isn’t racist, exactly, it’s just hostile, prejudiced, argumentative, and deeply confused.

She is a white woman, in terms of what that term actually means.

If she’d said that she didn’t want to hang out with non-Muslims ever again, that would be prejudiced and obnoxious.

But remember that she has been making impulsive and sometimes offensive statements for decades.

Just one year ago, Sinead O’Connor recorded a disturbing video in which she shared that she was suicidal.

She probably converted in the hopes that it will bring her peace, but lashed out online because she cannot help herself.

Sinead O’Connor has been an outspoken critic of organized religion for a very long time.

Unfortunately, her confrontational approach is sometimes off-putting, even to those who share her views.

At the end of her Twitter rant, she did at least acknowledge how bizarre her social media messages have been.

“Final word,” she wrote. “If its ‘Crazy’ to care. Then by all means, spank my ass and call me Fruity loops : )”

We hope that she is getting whatever help and support she needs in this time.

Perhaps her newly found religious community can help.

Justin Bieber: I’m Working Less to Spend Time With My Wife!

Justin Bieber has had a rough few weeks. 

The 24-year-old singer has reportedly been struggling in the aftermath of ex Selena Gomez’s breakdown.

By struggling, we mean he’s allegedly been feeling guilty about his relationship with Hailey Baldwin because he thinks Selena still has feelings for him

There’s been a lot of change for Justin of late. 

He got married to Hailey in a top-secret ceremony in September, confirming that two could agree on the fact that they are totally in love. 

However, it sounds like they’ve found something they simply cannot agree on:

Their work commitments. 

According to a new report by PEOPLE, Bieber has scaled back his commitments, noting that “he doesn’t seem ready to record new music yet” because “he just wants to hang out with Hailey.”

It’s not uncommon for newlyweds to want to spend a lot of time with each other. There’s always a honeymoon period, and while it sounds like Justin is still in that phase, it sounds like Hailey is not. 

How very awkward. 

“Hailey actually seems more ready to work than he does,” the report continues, adding that the duo are “not on the same page when it comes to work.”

Yikes. 

We need to remember here that Bieber has been the spotlight ever since 2007 when Scooter Braun happened to click on one of his Youtube videos by accident. 

That seems like a lifetime ago, right?

It’s crazy to think that Bieber may not be as big as he is today if Braun did not click on that video. 

Yes, he has appeared as a featured artist on recent music, but those songs don’t have the same addictive ring to them that the hitmaker’s own music has. 

But what’s really holding Justin back from hitting up the recording studio with his big comeback record? 

“He’s been on the go for a long time, and he’s enjoying a laid-back season of life,” a tipster dished to PEOPLE, adding:

“He is enjoying time with the woman he loves, and doesn’t want anything to get in the way of that.”

With Justin attempting to steer clear of work for the foreseeable future, his wife Hailey is not, and was recently unveiled as the new face of Tommy Hilfiger. 

Way to go, Hailey!

Despite reports that her knack for work is causing some issues in their marriage, Baldwin had only kind words to say about her new husband in October’s issue of Harper’s BAZAAR

“He is incredible,” the 21-year-old told the publication, adding:

“He crushes everything. Every song, every feature. It’s crazy to see what he does. I’m always blown away.”

“Over the past year, I’ve had more attention on me than I’ve ever had in my life. It’s easy to not think about your mental health or your physical health because you keep pushing, pushing, pushing. Before this year, I wasn’t balancing anything,” she continued. 

He wants a break, and everyone’s entitled to that, but Justin’s behavior of late has also been a huge cause for concern. 

There have been multiple occurrences in the last few months that have fans worried about his wellbeing. 

In August, just one month before his wedding, he was spotted shopping shirtless and looking disoriented in Tribeca before being spotted bawling his eyes out on the West Side Highway bike path the same day. 

It remains to be seen whether one working while the other chills out will cause a divide in their relationship, or if their young marriage is strong enough to weather any storm. 

Time will tell, we guess!

What are your thoughts on this?

Steve Bannon Steps Down From Breitbart to Spend More Time With Bottle of Gin

Throughout Donald Trump’s unexpected ascendancy from walking punchline to walking punchline with nuke codes, political strategist and oily sack of potatoes discovered in the back of the cupboard on moving day Steve Bannon was one of the president’s most trusted and influential advisers.

Of course, Trump aides have proven to have roughly the same shelf life as Defense Against the Dark Arts teachers at Hogwarts, so it came as no surprise when Bannon was booted from the White House back in August.

What followed, however, was an unexpectedly abrupt downfall befitting a man who once favorably compared himself to Darth Vader and Satan.

Bannon delivered that quote to The Hollywood Reporter’s Michael Wolff, who’s made headlines this week thanks to his controversial book Fire and Fury, which details his experiences inside the Trump White House.

In the most widely-circulated passage, Wolff reveals that Bannon described a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and group of influential Russians as “treasonous.”

Bannon later attempted to walk back his remark, claiming that he only meant to label disgraced campaign manager Manafort as a traitor, not the president’s son.

However, the damage had been done, and Bannon soon found himself atop the Donald’s ever-lengthening sh-t list.

Of course, falling out of favor with the human throbbing forehead vein that occupies the White House means that Bannon has also lost the support of his army of alt-right trolls, and the race to cut ties with the man once dubbed the most powerful figure in American politcs began in earnest this week.

Yesterday, Bannon was unceremoniously axed from his position as head of far-right media outlet Breitbart News.

“Breitbart News has decided to end its relationship with Stephen K. Bannon, therefore he will no longer host on SiriusXM since our programming agreement is with Breitbart News,” reads a statement posted on the company’s flagship website.

Bannon attemptes to downplay the termination and paint it as a mutual decision, but there’s no denying that it’s a socking fall from grace for a man who was frequently referred to as “President Bannon” just a few short months ago.”

“I’m proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time,” Bannon said in response to his dismissal.

The move came as a surprise even to many within Breitbart, who reportedly learned of Bannon’s departure in the company’s Slack chat.

As recently as last month, the company was still publicly praiaing Bannon’s influence on modern conservatism and crediting him with helping to shape the 2016 presidential election via as host of his own satellite radio show.

“As I have said all along, everything I brought to the Trump campaign came directly from the listeners I spoke with every morning on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM’s Patriot channel,” Bannon said at the time.

A spokesperson for Breitbart has confirmed that Bannon will no longer serve as host of the outler’s popular call-in show.

No replacement has been announced, but at press time, the racist blowhard who’s always drinking alone at your local dive bar was still available for the position.

Jenelle Evans & David Eason: Did They Spend Christmas Together?

For several weeks now, rumors about Jenelle Evans and David Eason getting divorced have been circulating non-stop on social media.

Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott: Fighting Over Where to Spend Christmas!

After hearing that Travis Scott can’t deal with Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy hormones and has even turned to Kanye for advice on how to deal with Kylie, it’s not a huge surprise to hear that the expecting couple is fighting.

Especially since they apparently can’t agree on where to spend Christmas (which is in just 10 days). Travis and Kylie haven’t been dating long, so this is in fact their first Christmas while also being their last before the baby’s born.

Will this pair of expecting parents split before they even name their daughter?

Kylie Jenner is pregnant with Travis Scott’s baby, and the news has turned Kylie’s life upside down.

She’s a 20-year-old hottie who’s accustomed to looking a certain way.

Now, she’s apparently so insecure about her radically transformed pregnant body that Kylie just plans to hide out for a while — possibly until the baby’s born.

And perhaps even for a while after.

(Kylie totally deserves a break, since she’s spent a decade as one of the most famous humans on the planet, but it’s sad to hear that she’s doing this because of body image issues)

Kylie’s still been surrounded by her family and her closest, most trusted friends. Anyone else, and she might worry about someone betraying her by snapping photos of her baby bump.

One person who hasn’t been spending as much time with her lately has been Travis Scott. He’s still touring. One imagines that he planned these concerts earlier this year and had zero plans to impregnate his then 19-year-old girlfriend. He might have not even been seeing Kylie yet.

As we mentioned when we discussed Kylie Jenner’s reported misgivings about the pregnancy, Travis Scott is probably going to stay busy with performances, off-and-on, right up until the due date.

While it’s nice for Travis to plan on spending time with his newborn, Kylie wants to see him here and now.

Being there for your child should always be your first priority, but you should also be there for your girlfriend.

HollywoodLife reports that Christmas threatens to tear the couple apart.

According to their source close to the couple:

“The one thing they’re having a little friction over right now is where to spend Christmas day.”

That’s a big decision for any serious couple.

“He wants to be in Houston with his family and he wants her to come with him.”

Travis has reportedly offered to fly Kylie to Houston on a private jet (which is nice, though seriously how else would she get there?)

If Kylie and Travis remain a couple in the long term, they could set up plans to alternate between their respective families on holidays. But this is their first Christmas.

Kylie, whose feelings are doubtless amplified by pregnancy hormones, is broken up about it.

“She’s trying to keep her cool about it, but she will be hurt if he doesn’t spend Christmas with her and the family.”

Kylie lives very, very close to many of her relatives. She’s probably needing to feel near them even more than usual right now.

And Kylie doesn’t want to do Christmas separately.

“They’re not going to have New Year’s together because he has a show in Miami.”

It sounds like she’s accepted that he won’t be with her to ring in 2018, at least.

“So, she’s hoping that she’ll get to have him with her for Christmas.”

It makes sense. Honestly, beyond emotional neediness and craving the familiar, she may just be nervous about traveling and being away from her family at this stage of her pregnancy.

“She feels like it’s only fair.”

Of course, while we don’t have the same inside scoop on Travis’ thoughts, we can imagine how he sees this.

He’s already spending time away from his whole family. Some while touring, some while spending time with Kylie.

Sure, Travis and Kylie went to Houston and we’re sure that they visited Travis’ family then, but we don’t imagine that he sees his family as regularly as Kylie sees hers.

And once their baby’s born, he’ll be spending even less time outside of Calabasas. He might see this as a great time to spend some quality time with his family before the overwhelming duties of being a new parent begin.

That’s a fair point, too.

Javi Marroquin & Briana DeJesus: Did They Spend Thanksgiving Together?

The reports that Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus are dating have been circulating for several weeks now, and the rumored couple isn’t doing much to clear things up.

Last month, Javi said he and Briana are dating, but she refuted that statement in an interview just a few days later.

Shortly thereafter, however, Briana tweeted about wanting to marry Javi, though that comment may have been made in jest.

These two are sending so many mixed signals that our clearest indications of what’s going on between them might come from Javi’s ex-wife, Kailyn Lowry.

Kailyn has expressed her belief that Briana is only dating Javi as a form of revenge, so … we guess that’s evidence that they are romantically involved?

We’re not sure anyone knows what’s going on here, and that includes Javi and Briana.

But one thing is certain–they’re spending a lot of time together while they figure out if they want to be more than “friends with benefits.”

Yesterday, Javi posted the following photo on Instagram:

“No plans are the best plans. Had a good time with you #makingmemories,” he captioned the pic.

Dog filters? Cheesy hashtags? Hanging out without plans?

These two might be hesitant to make it label themselves, but we’re gonna go ahead and make it official on their behalf–Javi and Briana are dating.

Obviously, the apparent seriousness of their relationship has raised a lot of questions:

Have they met each other’s kids? Will we be seeing them all coupled-up on the next season of Teen Mom 2?

And, of course, this time of year, one can’t look at Javi and Briana’s Instagram-documented without wondering if they’re Javiana will be spending the holidays together.

The fact that the selfie above (which has racked up a whopping 75,000 likes in less than 24 hours) was posted over Thanksgiving weekend was not lost on Javi’s followers.

Did they spend the holiday together or just the latter part of the weekend?

Did Briana travel to Delaware to see Javi, or did he hop a plane to Orlando to spend time with her?

Their Instagram pages offer no indication, but based on some recent tweets from Javi, it seems he caught a plane somehwere late last week.

He hasn’t confirmed it on social media, but our guess would be he flew to Florida and spent the entire long weekend–including Thanksgiving Day–with Briana and her family.

If that’s the case, then it’s pretty clear these two are well beyond the “just hooking up” stage.

Of course, Javi’s not the only one moving on, as Kailyn is dating Dominique Potter these days, and the relationship appears to be getting serious.

But that doesn’t mean, of course, that Lowry is happy for her ex.

In fact, we’re guessing she’d prefer to see him posting cozy, couple-y dog filter-photos with just about anyone except Briana.
