Jason Mraz: I’ve Totally Slept with Men!

Jason Mraz once famously sang “I’m Yours” to anyone who would listen.

In a new interview with Billboard, however, the artist explains why this is a tad bit ironic:

It turns out that, even while dating his wife, Mraz actually was NOT hers.

The dude slept around a lot before settling down — and not even with just one gender, either!

If you recall, the 41-year-old made headlines last month after writing the line “I am bi your side” in a love poem to the LGBTQ community in honor of gay pride month…

… and now we know why.

“Honestly, I didn’t realize it was going to be so telling,” he told the aforementioned publication about his poem, prior to dropping a rather explosive bombshell:

“But I’ve had experiences with men, even while I was dating the woman who became my wife. It was like, ‘Wow, does that mean I am gay?’”

Wait, whatt????

Mraz was sleeping with men while dating his very serious girlfriend and now-wife???

Yes.

And he continued in this interview:

“My wife laid it out for me. She calls it ‘two spirit,’ which is what the Native Americans call someone who can love both man and woman. I really like that.”

Oh, ummm. Okay then. Two spirit sexuality. There you have it, folks.

According to The New York Times, “Two Spirit” was a term coined in the early 1990s at a conference for gay and lesbian Native Americans.

It was used then as an umbrella phrase with no specific description of gender or sexual orientation.

Might that explain why Mraz, as you can see above and below, often holds up two fingers for his fans?

Possible.

Mraz and Christina Carano got married in October of 2015 after four years of dating; they exchanged vows at the time in an intimate outdoor ceremony in Virginia.

The songwriter announced the news on Instagram back then, gushing that he was “the luckiest man in the world.”

“I felt an instant connection to her and have admired her integrity and practices since day one,” Mraz said years ago of Carano.

“She is whole-hearted in every action, is extremely generous, completely drama-free, and has the most intuitive-genius-mind in the kitchen.

“Not to mention her smile absolutely melts me.”

It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the first time Mraz has opened up about his sexuality.

In a 2005 interview with Genre magazine, the singer said he was “bisexually open-minded,” telling the publication:

“I have never been in a sexual relationship with a man. If the right one came along, then sure.”

In this case, he concluded:

“I had a gay friend I was hanging out with just about every day. We were basically best friends. It took me about three months before I realized, ‘Oh my god, we’re dating.’

“Right before I moved to California, he gave me a pretty strong-willed kiss goodbye, which I have never experienced before.

“Unfortunately, he had a little bit more facial hair than I like.”

Kim Kardashian: Kylie is Totally Self-Made! We All Are!

Kim Kardashian may have become rich and famous mostly because she let Ray J stick his penis inside of her while a camera rolled, but the reality star is here to make one thing very clear:

SHE’s the one who let Ray J stick his penis inside of HER.

In other words: Kim deserves all the credit for this savvy marketing move, thank you very much!

The topic of whether Kardashian and her siblings deserve the riches that continue to pour in due to their own actions or their own luck in life is a relevant one at the moment.

Why?

Because Forbes recently featured Kylie Jenner on its cover and declared that the 20-year old businesswoman is on the verge of becoming “the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.”

No, really.

It said this.

See for yourself:

This is actually not the first time that Jenner has been associated with the B-Word as a result of her company, Kylie Cosmetics, but it is the first time a national publication has declared her to be “self-made.”

As you can imagine, quite a few people out there have taken issue with the designation, considering Jenner was born into a mega-wealthy family and would never have been in a position to start her own beauty brand if Kim hadn’t banged Ray J.

It’s circuitous, but it’s true.

Here’s a look at just some of the backlash that has come Kylie’s way:

kyliekritic

With all this as the preamble, it’s time to find out what Kim has said in her sister’s defense and in her family’s defense.

“I really didn’t get it, because she is ‘self-made’ – we are all ‘self-made,'” Kardashian told Refinery29, adding in some anger:

“What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense.”

Basically, yes.

Kylie started on third base in the Majors and Forbes is now making it sound like she crossed home plate after starting in the dugout in Single A ball.

“I know so many people like that [who] haven’t turned out to be as successful as Kylie.”If anything, I’ve seen the complete opposite,” Kim continued, giving Kylie credit for taking “an insecurity of hers and [figuring] out how to make a really successful business off of it.”

That’s actually fair.

Plenty of young men and women born into wealth just sit back lazily and do nothing with their advantages in life.

Kylie, instead, turned her whole lip filler thing into a huge business.

“Me, Kylie, not one [of the siblings] has ever depended on our parents for anything besides advice,” Kim said, making a little less sense now and concluding:

“That’s how I lived my life with my dad [Robert Kardashian]. He never gave me anything. We might have the opportunity, but I’ve seen it go the complete opposite way.

“Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mom.”

This, of course, is when Kardashian loses the thread and the argument.

LOTS of people out there work harder than Kim, her sisters and their mother.

There are single parents out there with three jobs in order to make things work.

Kim made some decent points in this interview, but she has to pump the brakes a little bit.

Yes, Kylie and company do work to earn their money.

But they were also given untold advantages the milisecond they were born and they’d be well-served to recognize those in public moving forward.

Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Totally Cheated on Their Exes With Each Other

If you’ve been anywhere near social media or a millennial in the past two weeks, then you’ve probably caught wind of the fact that Ariana Grande is engaged to Pete Davidson.

Fans have been obsessing over the news, and not only because one of the most famous musical artists in the universe is planning to marry a guy who was previously known to the public only as “that gangly guy from SNL.”

You see, Ariana and Pete’s relationship has been the subject of a great deal of suspicion, largely because these two are moving insanely fast.

Like, “relationship tattoos on the second date” fast.

Now, famous people do wildly impulsive things all the time.

It’s a natural result of rarely having to face any real consequences for their actions.

But Ariana is generally thought to be savvier than most young celebs, and Pete probably still works the Chuckle Hut in Staten Island every Tuesday.

In other words, they don’t seem like the types who would rush into an engagement after less than a month of dating.

(Especially since Ariana’s ring reportedly cost $ 93,000, which means Pete must now work for free as Lorne Michaels’ indentured servant until such time as his debt is repaid.)

So perhaps Pete and Ariana aren’t really rushing into things at all.

Perhaps they’ve been dating for much longer than anyone realizes and they only recently became free to gush about their relationship publicly.

You see, Ariana just broke up with Mac Miller in May, after more than two years of dating.

Around the same time, Pete abruptly ended his longterm relationship with Cazzie David.

As Refinery29 points out, it’s a situation that has fans donning their detective caps in hopes of sorting this timeline out:

Ariana Grande-Pete Davidson Timeline

As you can see, Twitter user Nicole Boyce has been putting in work, and her calendar confirms that Pete and Ari’s romance began under some seriously sketchy circumstances.

It looks as though Ariana dumped Mac, began spending a whole lot of time with Pete, and one week later — to the day, ladies and gentlemen! — Davidson broke up with Cazzie.

Does this mean Grande kicked Miller to the curb so she could devote herself full time to wooing Pete?

Or have these two been low-key hooking up ever since Ariana hosted SNL back in 2016, and Ari was just the first to sack up and kick her significant other to the curb?

Sadly, we probably won’t find out until one of them tells all in an angry post-breakup interview.

We’re not trying to be haters, but c’mon … relationship tattoos are a kiss of death 120 percent of the time.

Corinne Olympios: The Bachelorette Totally Sucks Now! Is It MY Fault?

If you follow The Bachelorette Spoilers, you know the fateful choice that Becca Kufrin will eventually make.

But … is this season as entertaining as those in the past? Notorious Bachelor Villain Corinne Olympios doesn’t think so.

She says that the show kind of sucks now. She also thinks that she knows why.

Speaking on The Michelle Collins Show on SiriusXM radio, Corinne says that she is still watching The Bachelorette.

But … she’s not impressed.

“It’s kind of boring. And I don’t like Jordan.”

Not all Bachelor Villains automatically like each other. They’re not, like, a faction.

Jordan Kimball is a model who is unafraid to use his hotness as a not-so-subtle weapon.

But Corinne says that this season just lacks entertainment value.

“I feel like The Bachelor’s losing steam real quick.”

She’s totally not trying to be mean at all, but she feels like the entire franchise has gone downhill.

“…It just sucks”

Some members of the Bachelor Nation have expressed similar sentiments, but others vehemently disagree.

But, as we said, Corinne means no ill will.

“Sorry. I mean, I love them.”

Just because you love something doesn’t mean that you can’t voice your criticisms of the franchise. That goes for The Bachelorette or for Star Wars.

“I know I love them and it has nothing to do with any one individual person.”

So she’s making it clear that this isn’t an issue with Becca or her suitors — maybe not even Jordan.

“It’s just the show doesn’t seem to be working anymore.”

Corinne gets blunt and admits that, to her, this season has been “kinda boring.”

“Now the drama is just, like, trying too hard.”

She has a guilty suspicion that it might be somehow, and very indirectly, her fault.

“Is it because of the drinking rule? Because …. I hate to call my own self out, but … is it?”

It’s been almost exactly a year since Bachelor in Paradise production was shut down due to a poolside sex romp.

While the investigation concluded that it was all a false alarm, they did put into place a limit to avoid further scares in the future.

“Does that suck that the show was only great because of drinking? … It’s like 1 drink per 2 hours or something. Don’t quote me on that.”

Sorry; we did literally quote her on that. But we did it with context.

For the record, the rule is reportedly that each contestant is only permitted two drinks per hour. That can add up on an empty stomach for some of the smaller contestants, but it should keep things from getting too out-of-control.

And Corinne worries that this is holding back the show from being “great.”

Producers have insisted that the show was never using alcohol as a social lubricant to stir up drama, but … some wonder if alcohol was the franchise’s fuel and that it may now be running on fumes.

“Like, you’re trying too hard to make drama.”

Corinne also opened up on Nick Viall. Remember how she was once head-over-heels for the guy?

She has changed her tune. Hindsight can help you see past someone’s charm.

“He’s just not really that nice. He’s grumpy.”

She does have something much more flattering to say.

“He’s much better looking in person, yeah, I’ll say that.”

You ever look up your crush on social media and they just look … fine? But in person they’re so attractive that you want to weep?

That’s because some folks are more photogenic than others. Sometimes, people who aren’t even a little attractive just have features that happen to look good on camera.

And there can be ludicrously attractive people who come across as “pretty” on camera.

Corinne doesn’t revel in dishing on her ex, but … she does dish on him.

“I am sad to say, unfortunately, that — not just me, a lot of people have said this, that he just seems so miserable in person recently.”

This echoes recent sentiments shared by others.

Alexis Waters doesn’t think that Nick is really even searching for the same thing that so many are.

“I don’t think he really [wants to find love].”

Danielle Lombard doesn’t think that he knows what he wants.

“I think he’s just confused… in general.”

That’s not quite harsh, but it’s not flattering, either.

Corinne is a controversial figure for the Bachelor Nation.

Sadly, with these comments, it seems more unlikely than ever that she’ll ever play the leading lady on The Bachelorette.

Which is a shame, because she is one of the most entertaining television personalities to ever grace any screen.

In fact, some of the folks who agree with her that the franchise is headed downhill might think that she’s just the right injection of fun and chaos that the series needs.

Jacob Roloff: Did He Just Totally Snub His Dad?

Over the past several months, Jacob Roloff has said on many occasions that he’s made up with his family.

The former Little People, Big World star has explained that he was lashing out back when he quit this TLC series; that he has since grown up a lot; and that he’s once again on solid terms with his loved ones.

And, based on photos such as the one below, we have no reason not to believe Jacob.

He’s clearly smitten with his nephew, Jackson, as his Instagram timeline is chock full of photos of himself and the one-year old.

But take a closer look and you’ll notice that there are no new pictures of Jacob and his father anywhere on this page.

We’ve had a hard time tracking down any of Matt Roloff and his youngest son on the former’s Instagram account, too.

This might mean nothing at all, of course.

Or it may be another clue that there’s tension between father and son, perhaps dating back to Jacob’s aforementioned decision to leave the world of reality television behind.

In his new book, “Out to See,” Jacob details how he couldn’t handle how each episode (heck, practically each interaction) was totally fake and scripted.

And now, in a passage excerpted by Radar Online, Jacob discusses at length the influence of “mentor” and “father figure” Mike Detjen.

out2c

“I appreciate Mike’s influence on me a lot,” Jacob writes of someone we admittedly had never heard of prior to this publication.

Having met Mike through his youth soccer team, Jacob says Detjen would often drop him off at practice or at games.

“Some took place hours away, and he would get me reading Popular Mechanics and Popular Science out loud during the long drive,” Jacob says, adding:

“I expanded my mind and learned new words from the writing inside those magazines, and even things I didn’t fully understand helped me later as a writer and reader.”

Roloff goes on to say that Mike was a “major influence on my mental development.”

Sadly, he passed away due to “cardiovascular complications” in 2008.

And Jacob recalls being left heartbroken in his book, writing:

I think I was in fifth grade at the time and I remember every detail of the morning my mom came to my room to tell me that Mike had not made it through his surgery.

I don’t remember the days afterward very well – only that I skipped school for a few days and was likely very foul to anyone around me. I cried often.

This is a sad story and an interesting story, but it may not reveal anything at all about Jacob’s relationship with Matt.

Except, at other points in his memoir, Jacob wrote at length about his siblings and his mother; he barely even mentions his dad.

Jacob doesn’t follow Matt on Instagram, either.

Moreover, as previously reported, Amy Roloff hosted an engagement party for her son after he proposed late last year.

It’s unclear whether Matt bothered to do the same.

We’re speculating here, of course, and it’s worth noting that Jacob shared a throwback photo of his parents this past February.

He cited rumored “rifts” between family members at the time and wrote the following as a caption:

My parents have always been pretty amazing. They both succeeded in life, had a family and provided for and gave their kids all that they wanted, within disciplined reason.

My dad taught me practical, mindful things like chess, how to build a fire, and other sorts of exercises in basic critical thinking to a degree that I still carry the lessons with me today.

He was also a great storyteller, sitting all of us kids by the fire and telling stories of “dark, windy nights.”

My mom, always making sure we knew we were loved, supported all our efforts and hobbies as often as she knew about them, even coaching all of us kids in soccer in our early years.

She also instilled in us a very good sense of manners and respect that I find myself appreciating more and more everyday.

Hmmm… okay. Fine.

Maybe there is no beef between Jacob and Matt.

But what about between Jacob and Audrey, huh?!?!?!?!?

Jason Bateman Apologizes for Totally Disrespecting Jessica Walter

Arrested Development may truly be the funniest show in television history.

But there was nothing funny about Jason Bateman’s behavior during a recent interview with his co-stars.

Talking with the New York Times, the topic of Jeffrey Tambor’s on-set behavior was raised in a discussion that included Tambor himself, Bateman, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett and Alia Shawkat.

(Tambor quit the show Transparent amidst allegations of sexual misconduct and has admitted in the past to at least one tirade aimed at Walter during the filming of Arrested Development.)

“Not to belittle it or excuse it or anything, but in the entertainment industry it is incredibly common to have people who are, in quotes, ‘difficult.’ … And what you learn is context,” Batemn said, in an attempt to defend Tambor.

He continued:

“You learn about character and you learn about work habits, work ethics, and you start to understand. Because it’s a very amorphous process, this sort of [expletive] that we do, you know, making up fake life.

“It’s a weird thing, and it is a breeding ground for atypical behavior and certain people have certain processes.”

This was already a tough start, with Bateman labeling Tambor’s inappropriate remarks to Walter as merely “atypical” and simply a part of the acting process.

But making matters so much worse?

Walter was right next to him!

And he was interrupting her while she was fighting back tears in relation to what transpired with Tambor, according to the Times.

“That doesn’t mean it’s acceptable,” Shawkat jumped and said. “And the point is that things are changing, and people need to respect each other differently.”

Maintaing her composure as best she could, Walter finally got a chance to speak:

“[In] almost 60 years of working, I’ve never had anybody yell at me like that on a set and it’s hard to deal with, but I’m over it now,” she said, acknowledging that Tambor has apologized and she has chosen to let it go.

But Bateman wasn’t finished somehow.

He repeated his sentiment, saying:

“What we do for a living is not normal, and therefore the process is not normal sometimes, and to expect it to be normal is to not understand what happens on set.

“Again, not to excuse it, but to be surprised by people having a wobbly route to their goal, their process – it’s very rarely predictable.”

As you might expect, Bateman has been SLAMMED for these comments; for not just trying to mansplain away Tambor’s behavior…but to do it in front of his victim.

bate backlash

Faced with this very deserved backlash, Bateman issued a mea culpa this morning that reads as follows:

Based on listening to the NYT interview and hearing people’s thoughts online, I realize that I was wrong here.

I sound like I’m condoning yelling at work. I do not. It sounds like I’m excusing Jeffery. I do not. It sounds like I’m insensitive to Jessica. I am not.

In fact, I’m horrified that I wasn’t more aware of how this incident affected her.

I’m incredibly embarrassed and deeply sorry to have done that to Jessica,” Bateman continued via Twitter. “This is a big learning moment for me.

I shouldn’t have tried so hard to mansplain, or fix a fight, or make everything okay.

I should’ve focused more on what the most important part of it all is – there’s never any excuse for abuse, in any form, from any gender. And, the victim’s voice needs to be heard and respected. Period.

I didn’t say that and instead said a bunch of other stuff and not very well. I deeply, and sincerely, apologize.

This is, thankfully, a very good and thorough apology.

But come on, men!

This really isn’t very hard.

We need to do better.

Janet Jackson Just Totally Owned the Billboard Music Awards

Yup. She's still got it, folks.

On Sunday night at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, Janet Jackson was honored with a career achivement tropy.

Prior to accepting the ICON award, however, the legendary artist got up on stage for her first performance in nine years, as well as her first performance ever as a mother.

(Jackson gave birth in early 2017. At the age of 50.)

After being introduced by Bruno Mars, Jackson took to the Las Vegas stage in a sparkling gold sweatshirt dress and shiny gold thigh-high shoes.

She opened her medley of beloved hits with “Nasty,” as her mother Katherine and other family members, including nephew Prince Michael, smiled from the crowd.

Janet then launched into her 1993 song “Throb," reminding everyone of just how long she's been on the scene and just how many hits are in her catalog.

But it wasn't just Jackson's singing and dancing that brought attendees to their feet.

It was her sage and beautiful words afterward.

Upon accepting her well-earned award, Jackson praised the ongoing #MeToo movement, talking at length about this moment in our culture and in society.

“I’m deeply humbled and grateful for this award," she said, adding:

"I believe that for all the challenges… we live a great moment in history. It’s a moment that at long last women have made it clear that we will not be controlled, manipulated or abused.

"I stand with those women and those men.”

The 52-year-old became black woman to receive this distinction at the Billboard Music Awards.

But we can only hope she will not be the last.

Previous winners included Cher, Celine Dion, Prince, Jennifer Lopez and Neil Diamond.

"Our public discourse is loud and harsh," continued Janet.

"My prayer is that weary of such noise, we will turn back to the source of all calmness, that source is God.

"Everything we lack, God has in abundance: compassion, sensitivity, patience and boundless love.

"Again I want to thank all of you for this honor and I thank God for giving me the precious energy that lets me live my life as an artist who every day seeks to expand my capacity to love.”

Watch both Janet's performance AND her speech below.

Just prepare to get up out of your seat and cheer when it's all over…
