Paris Jackson Possible Suicide Attempt Rushed to Hospital

TMZ.











"Paris Jackson left a suicide note and then cut her arm with a meat cleaver ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with an intimate knowledge of the situation tell TMZ ... Michael Jackson's daughter called a suicide hotline and the person on the other end was alarmed enough to call 911.

Our sources say in addition to cutting her right forearm, Paris had taken a large number of Motrin pills.

We're told once Paris was taken by stretcher to an ambulance and then transported to a nearby hospital, she was placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours.

She received "numerous stitches" for the cut.

As for the suicide note ... we do not know what she wrote.

TMZ broke the story ... officials first responded to Paris' home in Calabasas around 1:30 AM Wednesday morning."

Billboard Music Awards Kick-Off Sunday With Prince, Madonna, 
Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, More
















Living music legends Prince and Madonna will be honored at this year's Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 19, at 8:00 ET live on ABC.

"There is nothing small about this Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena airing live on ABC at 8 ET hosted by “30 Rock”’s Tracy Morgan. Just consider for a moment the sheer star power of  those appearing: living legends like Prince and Madonna; pop superstars like Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and Bruno Mars; and the next generation of luminaries like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, the Band Perry and Ed Sheeran, among many others.
Prince, one of the most inspirational and influential musicians of all time, will perform at Sunday’s ceremony and is being honored with Billboard’s prestigious Icon Award. Other performers include Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Miguel, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, the Band Perry, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Akon, Ne-Yo, David Guetta and Icona Pop.
Madonna will be honored with the Top Touring Artist award, an achievement earned by the worldwide success of her MDNA tour which sold out all of its 88 date run and was 2012's top-grossing tour with $305 million. It's the pop icon's latest chart landmark in a career full of them, including records for Hot 100 top 10 singles (38 of her overall 56 Hot 100 hits) and Dance Club Songs No. 1s (43). Her MDNA album bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 -- her eighth trip to the penthouse -- with sales of 359,000.
Bieber, Swift and Mars are also vying for the Milestone Award, a fan-driven honor that one voter will get to present at the show alongside Cee Lo Green.
Swift, fun. and Maroon 5 top the finalists at the 2013 awards, with each included in 11 categories. Rihanna competes in 10 categories, including Top Artist against Swift, Maroon 5, Justin Bieber and One Direction, while a pair of younger artists -- Carly Rae Jepsen and 1D themselves -- are finalists in nine and eight categories, respectively.
Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital singles sales, radio airplay, touring, streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, VEVO, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music. These measurements were tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound.
Stay tuned for more special Billboard Music Award announcements this week."

Nicki Minaj & Randy Jackson Leaving American Idol

Rolling Stone
"Nicki Minaj will follow Randy Jackson and leave American Idol after this season. Us Weekly reports that the rapper will focus on touring, business deals and her next album, and that she had only ever planned to judge a single season of the competition program.
Minaj joined the FOX reality show this season with fellow new judges Keith Urban and Mariah Carey. She has shared a strained relationship with Carey throughout her brief stint, and recently lashed out at the singer on Twitter.
Jackson, who has been with Idol since its debut in 2001, said last week that he's leaving the show after this season. Urban and Carey's fates haven't been announced, though reports indicate they'll depart, too."

The Great Gatsby

I just saw the new movie "The Great Gatsby" today and I really enjoyed it. I think I might have read the book in college even.
I knew about the movie when I first saw the trailer for it last year and it was stated that the movie was supposed to be out around Christmas of 2012. But the movie was not let out because they wanted to revamp it and add some fun music to the soundtrack. They decided to add Jay Z songs to the film and now it was just released.
I thought the movie was done very well. I can't really remember much of the book except that it was a love story. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire really stood out in the film and I enjoyed their acting. The costumes and sets were amazing and very true to the 20's flapper style.
The rap music was out of place in a movie set in the 1920's but it gave it a modern edge.
All in all, it was a very good movie and it makes me tempted to go look for a copy of the book and read it.

Holographic Nails!

My friend Sarah (WildEdgyNails) lent me her new NFU Oh Holographic nail polish and she let me try it out. I really like the idea of Holographic nail polish and I wanted to order the whole set of holos by either NFU Oh or Color Club but I didn't want to shell out around $80 so I never bought any. But maybe I will reconsider it!

This is the silver holo polish

Suspicious package outside Lionel-Groulx metro station


Montreal's morning commuters were faced with delays on Wednesday as police investigated a suspicious package found shortly after 7 a.m. outside the Lionel-Groulx metro station.The metro station was evacuated. Montreal's public transit corporation said the green and orange lines are both running, but not stopping at the station.
On the Ville-Marie expressway, the Atwater exit remained closed at 9:45 a.m.
Investigators used a bomb-disabling robot to inspect the package.
An officer on the scene said it's likely the scare is a false alarm.
Bus lines that normally stop at the Lionel-Groulx station are being rerouted along Delisle Street.
A shuttle bus service has been set up to run along the orange and green lines and stop at the metro stations immediately before and after Lionel-Groulx. Passengers who need to switch between the two lines can use the shuttle service to transfer at Lionel-Groulx station.
Police are on the scene rerouting traffic.
Drivers heading east towards downtown are facing congestion and delays.

PSY, the Korean artist who brought us "Gangnam Style" has come out with his next song called "Gentleman."

Does it compare? Will it become the next big sensation like Gangnam Style? I think it sounds good with a nice beat and it's pretty catchy.

Potential bomb threat shuts down commercial arteries in Pointe Claire

Article

Montreal police confirmed that "a suspicious package" was left at the Esso gas station that sits in the Fairview Pointe Claire parking lot at the corner of St. John's and Brunswick boulevards in Pointe Claire has shut down major traffic arteries, said Montreal Police Service Const. Pierre-Luc Du Sablon.
Du Sablon reported that police were called around 12:30 this afternoon about a suspicious package left on the gas station property and are advising motorists to avoid the area because the risk of potential explosion. A security perimeter has been set up around the area and access to the busy intersection, considered the commercial heart of the West Island, is extremely limited, if not outright cut off.
"The SWAT team is on its way" to the scene, Du Sablon reported.
The suspicious package "could be anything," and has prompted very real fears in the aftermath of yesterday's Boston Marathon bombing incident, which saw two explosions set off near the finish line kill at least two and injure hundreds more.
Keep checking us out for more updates as the situation evolves.

UPDATE 2:25 p.m. Police bomb squad robot is pulling package away from the front of the gas station, thus far still intact, reports CJAD's Dan Delmar. No reports yet on the origin of the package.

My Next Nail Sticker Manicure!

The Sally Hansen nail stickers that I tried recently are marked that they last for about 10 days. I had them on for around 5 days I think and I was pretty impressed. They seemed to hold up pretty well considering what I do for a living with my hands always in water. The nail polish that I had along with it chipped faster than the nail stickers so it was cool to me. I think 5 days was ok because I get bored of my polish quickly anyways!

Now I have tried my next set. These are by Essie and I will see how they hold up against the Sally Hansen nail art. I tried the leopard print ones and painted my nails a taupe color. These ones have a textured feeling to them. The leopard spots protrude and you can feel them. They are thicker than the others but I guess that is probably because of the raised texture. They were easy to put on like the other ones but these ones I had to cut the excess off, whereas the other ones I just slid over the edge of my nail and they cut themselves. We will see how they do!

Nail art stickers!

I got some free samples of nail art stickers in some magazines I received in the mail. I have never tried nail art stickers before and I have never really wanted to try them because I thought they might fall off, especially with my job at a hair salon. My hands are always in water and my nail polish chips quickly as it is! But I got these for free so I thought I might try them... nothing to lose, really. The only annoying thing is that in the free samples they only give you 2 to try!

The first I have tried are by Sally Hansen and they are a hounds tooth pattern. I painted the rest of my nails black to go along with it. I applied them Monday night and I have showered and washed my hair and washed my hands around the house and they haven't budged yet. I will see how they hold up at work!






















I have 4 other samples to try from Essie, I will see if the Essie ones are as good as the Sally Hansen ones.
