Mindy Kaling Blasts Hollywood Peers

Mindy Kaling at Harvard Law

Mindy Kaling has blasted her Hollywood peers for giving "too much advice."

The Mindy Project creator and star urged a class of new graduates not to listen to tips on diets and parenting from uneducated celebrities while giving a speech at Harvard Law School's commencement ceremony in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Wednesday. "Celebrities give too much advice, and people listen to it too much. In Hollywood, we all think we're these wise advice givers, and most of us have no education whatsoever," the 34-year-old said. "Try to be the kind of people who give advice to celebrities, not the other way around," she added.

Charlotte Church: Miley Cyrus Has Skewed Perspective

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Child Stars, Features,

Katy Perry and Miley CyrusCharlotte Church says that Miley Cyrus has a "skewed perspective."

The 28-year-old singer - who was catapulted to the spotlight as a classical singer before branching into pop music in 2005 - can relate the young "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker, 21, who made headlines last year for a number of provocative performances, and expects she will change her attitude in a few years.

"It's so obvious this young lady has a skewed perspective because of what she's been through. All she knows is to sell and be sold. This sounds patronizing but in a couple of years she'll change her tune. I went through a similar-ish thing, not to the depths she is taking it to. But it's exhibitionism. As a teenager, you're really egocentric. Why would you give a f**k about the rest of society," Charlotte said.

Tori Spelling Will Forgive Dean McDermott

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Divorce, Rumors,

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermottTori Spelling's mother has urged her to try to save her marriage.

The former Beverly Hills 90210 star was "absolutely blindsided" when her husband Dean McDermott, 47, checked into a rehab facility last month to address some personal issues, after he was accused of having affairs with multiple women, but Candy Spelling thinks the 40-year-old actress should stand by him for the sake of their four children, Liam, six, Stella, five, Hattie, two, and 15-month-old Finn.

"Candy certainly is not a big fan of Dean at the moment, because of the hell he has put her daughter through. But she does recognize that he is a great father and he does love Tori. Tori finally confided with her mom, about her ultimate fear that Dean could cheat on her again in the future. It was a very open and honest conversation. At the end of it, Candy told her daughter, 'You will never know unless you try.' Since Dean did decide to get help, Candy thought that he at least deserved a another chance," a source said.

Cliff Richard: Young Pop Stars Need More Support

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Industry News, Pop,

Cliff RichardCliff Richard doesn't think young artists are getting enough support in the music industry.

The 73-year-old singer believes pop stars coming onto the market in their teens and early twenties should be given more help to maintain their success, instead of being dropped by record companies when they fail to achieve a number one: "I don't think the new groups and young singers have the same support system. Today you can have a number one, [but] if your next record's not number one sometimes they won't re-sign. It's because they don't have the same faith in the artists that my producer and manager, Norrie Paramour and Peter Gormley, had."

However, the "Living Doll" hitmaker, who has recently released his 100th album, has praised the emerging new talent and believes even people who don't achieve success from shows such as The X Factor are still going on to achieve global success. "When you think about it, even the losers on The X Factor are good. I mean, they're really good singers these days. When you think of One Direction, five of them, they all lost. None of them won The X Factor and they're the biggest boyband in the world at the moment," he explained.

Robert Pattinson Gets Career Tips from Kristen Stewart

Robert Pattinson and Kristen StewartRobert Pattinson has been asking his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart for career advice.

The actor is still in regular contact with Kristen, despite splitting from his Twilight co-star earlier this year because he was unable to get over her fling with married director Rupert Sanders. Rob, 27, even asked the Snow White and the Huntsman star whether he should take on the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

After being approached by the production company, he asked for advice from the 23-year-old starlet and she told him she thought it would be a "disaster." A source told Yahoo! omg!, "Kristen told him Fifty Shades would be a disaster for him. He's haunted by Twilight and being too identified with that role, taking Fifty Shades... would mean a worse label for the rest of his career. Kristen told him that, creatively, he shouldn't do it, but if it's about fame and money, he should. She told him he had to make the choice between the two, but warned that it would stick with him."

Jon Bon Jovi: Bieber Should Make His Own Mistakes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Child Stars, Meltdowns, Features,

Jon Bon Jovi and Justin BieberJon Bon Jovi thinks that Justin Bieber should be left to make his own mistakes.

The "Livin' On a Prayer" singer knows how hard growing up in the spotlight can be, but doesn't think young stars such as Justin - who has displayed erratic behaviour of late, upsetting his neighbors and being caught smoking marijuana - needs a "lecture" from him.

"Having lived it myself, there's lots I could say to One Direction or Justin Bieber - to any young band at a crossroads, kids who are not even 20 years old and have the whole world looking at them, and are scared because they don't know any better. But you can't give them a lecture. They have to learn it their own way and find their own path. The only thing you can tell young guys like that is that it's going to be OK."

Jon - leader of rockers Bon Jovi, who started their career in 1983 - also says the music industry nearly got too much even for him at one point and he thought about giving it up.
