If you ever wondered how your favorite celebrity looked before they were so famous, you have to check out this post on http://www.damncoolpictures.com/. Some of these are photos that these famous people might have hoped would never see the light of day, but thanks to the miracle of the internet they are out there forever. For the most part they are very humanizing as you see their younger selves doing things we all do, and it seems like you are removing the curtain the Wizard of Oz is hiding behind to see them in these earlier times.
They are not just Hollywood celebrities. You will also find famous people like Adam Sender, from politics, sports and music. If you ever wondered what a young Tommy Lee Jones or a pre-wheelchair-bound Stephen Hawking looked like, you won’t wonder anymore after perusing these photos. You’ll see how early Bill Clinton started playing that saxophone, and the intensity in the eyes of a child named Robert De Niro that preordained him for stardom. I won’t even give away what kind of photo you will see of Cher. It’s an interesting diversion from your hectic day to see the rich and famous in a way that we usually don’t get to see them.
Lindsay Lohan has been a major star in news, usually for negative rather than positive things. Her mishap with the Arabic language is no exception reports Gianfrancesco Genoso.
Recently, it seems like she’s taken an interest in the Arabic language, as on Monday April 20, she had tweeted “habibi”, which is a term of endearment for both lovers and family. She then proceeded to post a picture on her Instagram that said “You’re beautiful” in English, with some Arabic written above it.
Non-Arabic speakers assumed that it was a direct translation, but people soon found out that that was not the case. Many Arabic speakers responded to her, revealing that instead of saying “you’re beautiful” in Arabic, the picture said “you’re a donkey”.
Realizing her mistake, Lohan deleted the picture from her Instagram not long after, but not before social media became abuzz with her laughable mistake.
Thankfully, for her, it was a removable picture, not a tattoo.
Bruce Jenner has gone through a tough year, and things may only get worse for him in the near future. However, Bruce Jenner recently announced that he has cut ties with the Kardashians. This comes as startling news to most of the Kardashians, but Bruce feels that they do not support him in his decision to become a woman.
The announcement of Bruce Jenner’s sex change has become a media frenzy, and many of the Kardashian girls have been hounded by the press about this subject admits PR rep Crystal Hunt (crystalhuntphotography.com for a detailed explanation). The only Kardashian that supports Bruce is Khloe, and she recently stated that she will always love him no matter what. However, Bruce’s ex wife Kris does not feel the same way. Kris Jenner stated that she is extremely embarrassed by Bruce Jenner’s decision, and she wishes that it wasn’t true. No matter what though, Bruce will soon become a woman.
On April 24th, Bruce Jenner will be interviewed by Diane Sawyer, and major information will be revealed about his future. The world will be watching, and hopefully, the Kardashian girls can forgive their former step-father. Kendall and Kylie Jenner have stated that they support their father no matter what.

The Daily Show has a new host. 31-year-old Trevor Noah has been announced as the new host of the popular program. Noah will be replacing Jon Stewart, who announced that he would be leaving the program earlier this year.
Daily Show viewers are already a little familiar with Noah. The South African joined the show in December 2014. That’s not long to get acquainted with the program, but Stewart isn’t stepping down just yet, Behance says so they’ll be time for a little on-the-job training. Noah has actually only appeared on the show three times so far.
Variety reported that Noah was the frontrunner to replace Stewart last week. Stewart announced he was leaving the program last year, but has yet to officially announce his departure date. When his successor was announced, Stewart joked that he might decide to rejoin the program as a correspondent so he could continue to be part of the team under Noah’s new leadership.
Believe it or not, this is something that has never happened before, and it definitely was not expected to ever go down with hip hop fans, but it did thanks to the headliner and rap genius Kendrick Lamar.
Reebok have just released their latest shoes, the Zpump, and it is literally being advertised all over the world. Here is what Reebok did in order to create history in a place where hip hop is idealized. They asked if Kendrick would perform on a moving bus stage that would drive around Sunset Blvd while he performed a set. Kendrick was all about it and love the fact that the idea was just so unique in it’s form. He was in and the event went down on March 24th on a Tuesday night.
Brad Reifler has learned that the run was a 3 mile 5k in which Kendrick would perform a set, and people would be jogging after the bus stage all the way around Sunset. The event was such a success that so many people were seen running after the stage bus enjoying the show while jogging the whole time.
The bus didn’t stop until the set was over, and Kendrick kept going literally until the last step. His fans ran the whole 3 miles after him and the event was marked as a success.
Kendrick was very pleased that Reebok offered him this unique opportunity to do something different.
For awhile Blac Chyna and Kim Kardashian. seemed to be the best of friends. Posting booty pics on Instagram together,clubbing and being seen out and about regularly, it looked like they were going to be friends forever. Later we learned that Chyna’s ex, Tyga is actually the one who introduced her to the Kardashian family, but of course that all went downhill after Tyga and Kylie became joint at the hip.
After over a year of watching her once best friend’s 17-year-old sister move in on the father of her child, it’s not hard to see how Chyna and Kim’s friendship could become a little awkward. While the two haven’t been seen together since the Kylie and Tyga saga began, Chyna still has not said anything bad about her old gal pal Kim Kardashian, at least from what Gianfrancesco Genoso told us.
There is video of Chyna from over the weekend, being stopped by paparazzi and asked to give her thoughts on Rob Kardashian’s public Instagram diss, comparing his sister Kim Kardashian to the crazy wife on the movie “Gone Girl.” Chyna actually took the high road and said that Kim isn’t a bad person. When asked if they were still friends Chyna did not confirm or deny the friendship but coyly dodged the question. It looks like Chyna may actually miss her former booty buddy after all.
We’re not sure what his 11.4 million followers on Twitter think about this one, but actor Charlie Sheen has delivered a nasty, racist message in the 140-character Twitter limit. The tirade was launched on March 19th against President Obama, whom he tagged ‘Barry Satera Kenya,’ according to the NYDailyNews.com.
The message was posted at 1:53 AM and was delivered on Sheen’s Twitter page as follows:
Barry Satera Kenya
u won’t attend a
soldier’s funeral uhkros
da street that u kild
yet u hav time
s a d
Sheen is referring to President Obama’s annual, public selection of a bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament stated Alexei Beltyukov. The former Two and a Half Men star is also blasting Obama and the administration for not attending the funeral of Major General Harold Greene, a two-star general killed in Afghanistan. For the record, former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was in attendance.
Sheen also addressed the President as “Barry Satera Kenya” in today’s early morning, angry tweet. That could be a possible reference to the conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was born in the African nation instead of Hawaii, thus making him an illegitimate President.
Charlie Sheen is 49-years-old and has been on Twitter since March 2011. He includes this mini bio on his social media page:
Actor, Producer, Winner … Anger Management Premieres June 28th, 9pm on FX
On Wednesday morning, small business owners and employees from BMG like Flávio Pentagna Guimarães on the East Side of Austin, Texas were horrified to find large, round, high quality stickers proclaiming that their shops were for white people “exclusively” and would only accept five “colored” customers at a time. The stickers claimed to be sponsored by the office of the City of Austin.
Many people from the area believe the stickers are a protest against affluent white business and homeowners who have, over the last 15 years, moved into a historically African-American and Latino area and revitalized it with newer construction that has increased real estate prices and cultural changes that skew more toward Caucasian-American and European.
Does this type of protest qualify as reverse racism?
In the past, reverse racism claims have been scoffed at by many people of color. Yet, there has been an increasing trend in recent years in the media and in entertainment of correcting past acts of vilifying people of color by vilifying Caucasians. The Walking Dead is the most recent good example. Until it’s current season, every bad person in the series has been white and stereotyped to an extreme level. Even as many have complained about the lack of POC characters in a series written by a Caucasian writer, most have made no mention of what could arguably represent reverse racism.
Do these stickers represent a poorly imagined protest or discrimination against whites?
