It has been eight years since Michael Jackson’s death, and his beloved daughter Paris marked the anniversary of his passing on June 25 with a new tattoo. The 19-year-old model got the word «Applehead» on her left foot — it was a term of endearment that she, her brothers, and those close to Michael would call him — and shared a photo of the ink on Instagram with a touching message: «With every step I take, you lift my foot and guide me forward.»
Paris was just 11 years old when her father died, and she has said that the incident «left her scarred.» In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in March, Paris opened up about being the apple of her father’s eye: «Growing up, I was treated as the favorite because I was the only girl. I was the princess; I was perfect in my dad’s eyes.»
Big Father’s Day smile as I’m leaving the house to go to work and my baby comes running to me saying, «up up» to sit on my shoulders. As busy and complex as my life is, these simple core moments with my ohana will always be my anchor for balance and gratitude. Trying to get her to smile but she’s too fascinated by the «beauty» aka huge circumference of my bald head. #ToFathers 🍻
Dwayne Johnson had his best girls by his side as he celebrated Father’s Day on Sunday. The actor shared two sweet posts on Instagram as he gushed about being a proud dad to 15-year-old Simone, whom he shares with his ex Dany Garcia, and 1-year-old Jasmine, whom he shares with longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian. «As busy and complex as my life is, these simple core moments with my ohana will always be my anchor for balance and gratitude,» he captioned a shot of him with Jasmine propped on his shoulders. While we can’t get over how big his little girl is getting, it’s his lengthy post to his eldest daughter that will really bring a tear to your eye.
Even though it was his special day, he couldn’t help but gush about how inspiring his daughter is. «I’m so proud to call her my daughter and so grateful that my influence as the #1 man in her life (for now) are two fundamental things that can take her and any young girl or boy far in this world . . . hard work and kindness,» he wrote. «She also bad ass with the most razor edge, wicked sense of humor, so you know I’m proud this apple didn’t fall far from the tree.» So cute! We always love seeing Dwayne’s beautiful blended family.
My #1. Had the BEST Father’s Day having my first daughter @simonegjohnson come to set to hang w/ me while I worked. She gave me a Father’s Day card and wrote something far more inspiring than I’m sure she expected it to be. *I’m so proud to call you my dad. I admire how hard you work and are always so kind to everyone. It truly motivates me and I love you so so much. The thing that got me the most was the realization that of all the things I do that could influence my kid, she’s motivated by hard work and kindness. Not fame, not money or flashy things to buy, but hard work and kindness. I’m so proud to call her my daughter and so grateful that my influence as the #1 man in her life (for now;) are two fundamental things that can take her and any young girl or boy far in this world.. hard work and kindness. She also bad ass with the most razor edge, wicked sense of humor, so you know I’m proud this apple didn’t fall far from the tree. My#1 #BestFathersDay #ProudSilverback #HardWorkAndKindness 🤙🏾🦍
And yes by “sweet air kisses of love,” I really mean “butt burp bubble of hate.” Although, it seems like Patti LuPone can’t even be bothered with producing a fart for Trump.
If La LuPone ever had a filter to begin with, I’m sure it broke and flew out of her mouth decades ago when she belted out a high note. Patti isn’t one to hold back her thoughts on anything. Patti was on Show People With Paul Wontorek last month to promote her Broadway show War Paint and she took a moment to shoot out an anti-Trump river of pure fire that was so piping hot I’m surprised it didn’t charbroil Paul’s face and leave him looking like….well, like Trump. Patti called Trump a “fucking ass motherfucking asshole,” “a fucking nut” and “certifiably insane.”
At this past Sunday’s Tonys, Patti gave a CliffsNotes version of that rant.
Patti was asked by a reporter from Variety why Trump should come see War Paint. The show must go on, but it won’t go on with Patti on the stage if Trump is sitting in the audience. Patti won’t perform for him if he goes, and when asked why, she kept it short and simple by saying, “Because I hate the motherfucker, how’s that?”
And now presenting the eloquent, theatrical and superior reboot of “Cash me ousside, how bow dah.”
"Because I hate the Motherfucker, how's that?"

Oh Patti, when Trump signs an executive order making it illegal to be a big meanie to him, I hope I’m sitting next to you on the prison bus headed to the labor camps.
When George Clooney met Amal Alamuddin, their chemistry was obvious to those around them — including George’s parents. His father, Nick, told People that George and Amal met during a dinner gathering in 2013, and both Nick and his wife, Nina, were there. In fact, George’s parents answered the door when Amal arrived, and she made a great first impression.
«She introduced herself to us and we talked,» he said. «She was obviously very charming, gorgeous, and so clearly accomplished, but by the time we had supper that night, it was clear there was a kindness to her and an inclusiveness.»
And as for George’s reaction to Amal, the actor was definitely impressed. He’s talked about that night publicly, saying that she was a friend of a friend who came to visit, and he «chased her for many months» afterward. As George’s dad explained, «By the end of supper, I started looking over at Nina and saying, ‘Look ouuuut, this could be trouble for this young man!'»
George has revealed that he knew «fairly quickly» that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Amal, and according to his parents, sparks flew instantly. «I really think by the time that first [meeting] was over, his and her fates were sealed, both of them,» his father said. «She was so remarkable and he was so remarkable around her.»
Since then, the couple has shared plenty of sweet moments together, most recently welcoming twins Ella and Alexander, a girl and a boy.
I had no idea there were only two Sigma Derby gambling machines left in Vegas
You know the game — it’s the old gambling game where you bet on horses and then the toy horses race around a track on a casino floor. The Las Vegas Review-Journal is out with a fun story about how there are only two of the games left in Vegas — at The D & the MGM Grand. You can still slam quarters into Sigma Derby, slam beers and go nuts like you’re about to hit the Powerball. There’s something about old elements of Vegas that I miss. I miss the dealers and their clickers at Binion’s when you needed a cocktail waitress. That place would get you rocked so fast. Why not bring back a block of old coin slots, like a #tbt for the soon to be Gen Xers who experienced that life on their first Vegas visit. How about we also go back to free drinks at the bar for throwing in a $ 20 and milking that $ 20 for at least 2-3 drinks before cashing out a $ 17.50 ticket and a quick buzz.

WARNING: This is the saddest Open Post since that time I actually made a full-on post out of a 43-second video of a kitten playing with a cigarette. But this is a different kind of sad.
Nearly three years ago, those of us with cold dead insides felt a strange, unnatural feeling called “warmness” as we looked at pictures of Tom Hardy kissing and playing with his dog Woody Woodstock Yamaduki Hardy on the set of Legend in London. Well, fellow dead insiders, prepare to feel emotions again, because Woody is now in heaven. The Tom Hardy fan Tumblr TomHardyDotOrg posted the tears-summoning tribute and obit he wrote for his friend.
Woody was 11 weeks old when Tom saved him from the streets of Peachtree City, GA one night. Tom was in Atlanta to shoot Lawless. Woody quickly went from stray to first-class traveler of the world. Woody traveled everywhere with Tom as he shot movies. Woody Hardy also became a star himself and was #73 on Time’s Most Influential Animals List. A few days ago, Woody went off to the great beyond after dying from polymyositis. He was only 6.
You can read Tom’s full tribute to Woody Hardy here, but below is the part that really tugged and broke the heartstrings I didn’t know I had.
To the bestest friend ever. To me and to a family who loved him beyond words and whom he loved without doubt more than I have ever known. Woody was the bestest of journey companions we ever could dream of having. Our souls intertwined forever.
A friend told me
He was special bro, a shining example of man’s best friend. He burnt very very bright and, those that burn very bright sometimes burn half as long.
Thank you Woody for choosing to find us. We will love you and be with you and you with us forever. Never ever ever forgotten. Your Boy tom xxx I love you beyond words. To the moon and back again and again to infinity and beyond. Run with Max now and the Angels. I will see you when I get there.
With all of me I love you. Always.
Thank you for your love, beautiful boy.
Tom also made this slideshow starring his furry soulmate:
You may want to bookmark that video on your phone. Because the next time you’re drunk dancing at a wedding and Young Hearts Run Free comes on, your relatives may wonder why you suddenly sat down and got sad. Show them that video and their asses should understand.

Usher was among the list of esteemed musicians set to perform at Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester concert on Sunday, an event held to benefit and honor the victims of the bombing that occurred during Ariana’s Manchester show on May 22. Along with Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, and Pharrell Williams, Usher was scheduled to hit the stage between Justin Bieber and Katy Perry, but ended up being a no-show. Manchester native Liam Gallagher performed in his place, and disappointed fans soon took to Twitter to ask, «Usher, where art thou?»
The singer did tweet out a link to the One Love Manchester live stream, but his absence begged a few questions: Was he sick at home? Did his flight get canceled? Was he an actual usher helping guests to their seats? The real reason for his not being there is a lot more understandable. According to an Instagram posted on Monday, Usher said that he missed the concert because one of his sons was having his first day «at Camp Kudzu, one of the few summer camps for kids living with diabetes.» Aww. Read on for some fan reactions, as well as Usher’s explanation.
