George Clooney: 'Did Too Many Drugs,' Slept With 'Too Many Chicks' to Be a Politician

George Clooney is taking the center of attention today in the entertainment news world...Hollywood actor and activist George Clooney, 49, has been discussed as a possible democratic candidate. However, he made it very clear today that he may not be cut out to work in the political system.
"I didn't live my life in the right way for politics, you know," the actor, 49, stated in The Hollywood Reporter.  "I f----- too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that's the truth." 

Clooney does however feel that politicians should be honest about their pasts and move forward with why they will make the best candidate.

In a quote from PEOPLE, Clooney explained that “a savvy political figure "would start from the beginning by saying, 'I did it all. I drank the bong water. Now let's talk about issues,' "he says."That's gonna be my campaign slogan: 'I drank the bong water.' " 

Clooney also explains that even not in political office he will still stay involved with helping world issues.  

I have a lot of respect for George Clooney. I think he's a talented actor with a good head on his shoulders, and he's done a lot of work to help world causes. I'm not surprised hearing the discussion of whether or not he would be a good democratic candidate because it seems that a lot of celebrities are really trying to get more involved in our government system and almost prove to the world that they have what it takes. I also loved his campaign slogan because he does get the point across. It reminds me of when Obama admitted to smoking tobacco and it causing controversy. My opinion is who cares? Are they going to do a good job with the position? That's where you vote from, not on personal life.

Billy Ray Says ‘Hannah’ Destroyed His Family

No one saw this one coming...Singer/actor Billy Ray Cyrus is blaming daughter Miley’s hit show Hannah Montana for tearing his family apart. He has not spoken to Miley since videos were posted of Miley using the legal substance salvia, and he has been separated from estranged wife Tish since the fall.
“That damn show destroyed my family,” he stated in an interview with GQ magazine. “I’d take it back in a second. For my family to be here and just be everybody okay, safe and sound and happy and normal.”
According to the San Francisco Examiner, Billy Ray never made profit off Hannah Montana.
“For the record, to set it straight, I want to tell you: I’ve never made a dime off of Miley," he said. "You got a lot of people have made percentages off of her. I’m proud to say to this day I’ve never made one commissioned dollar, or dime, off of my daughter.”
Reports from ABC and FOX News both state that Cyrus wishes he could have protected his daughter more, and he wishes he could shelter her from the dangers.
Miley has two movies premiering this year. She has not spoken to her father since the salvia incident.
When I found out this information, honestly I was shocked. I never thought I'd see the day when Miley's dad says the kickoff to her career is what tore her family apart. From the looks of it on Hannah Montana they seem to have the most perfect relationship and lifestyle, he even wrote a song for her. I feel that when Miley sees this in the tabloids and reads next month's GQ interview it can go either one of two ways; she will contact him and try to make amends and clean up here act, or she will continue to do as she does now and not speak to her father.

Lindsay Lohan in Trouble...once again

It's hard to not be intrigued by actress/singer Lindsay Lohan. From her DUIs, to cocaine possession, to being put on suicide watch, you can't help but wonder what she will do next. Within the next few weeks, fresh out of rehab star  may be reappearing in court. This time, being accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store in Venice, California in January. No decisions have been confirmed just yet, but it looks as if Lohan will be charged with a felony, facing up to three years in jail.

Maybe she'll actually face her sentence this time, and not get let out for "good behavior" or some other excuse. 

On January 22nd, the singer/actress was caught on tape wearing the necklace, right before it went missing. It was turned into the Pacific Division police station by a friend of Lohan. Investigation is still being reviewed.

Lohan swears she is innocent, and has quite a few people backing her up.

“We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press,” Attorney Shawn Chapman Holley told TMZ.

Lohan is still on probation from her DUI charge.

The question everyone keeps asking is why is she still doing this? When is she going to learn? Personally, I feel like some time in jail may do her some good-wake her up to reality and help her realize she needs to pull it together to save not only her reputation, but her life. 

 I think Lindsay Lohan is guilty. She has been in trouble with the law before, and there was also an incident with British Elle magazine where $400,000 worth of jewelry was stolen after Lohan used it for a shoot. Although Elle didn’t think it had anything to do with their model, in this case all signs point to Lohan. She was caught on tape wearing the necklace and almost immediately after it went missing, then her friend took it in to the police station, perhaps to help protect her? Since Lohan is still on probation there is a very good possibility it will be back to the cell for her. Maybe she called in a favor? Who wouldn’t do that for a friend?

Personally I think it’s a shame. I used to idolize Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap days and its just depressing to me to see what comes of too many childhood actors, such as Dustin Diamond, River Phoenix, and Danny Bonaduce to name a few.
