Truthfully, I’ve always found it strange that people name their children before meeting them. When it comes to pets, it’s not weird at all to get to know them a bit before imposing an identity on them. You wouldn’t want to call your hamster Peaches when it’s clearly a Crouton! Why don’t we extend that same courtesy to kids?


Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom agree with me. Per People,

“We have yet to decide specifically on her name because, I think, we’ve got options and she’ll tell us,” the singer and American Idol judge, 35, said during a Monday interview on Mix 104.1's Karson & Kennedy. “I’ll look at her and go, ‘Oh yeah yeah, you are her, you are that.’”

Since babies don’t tend to have very strong personalities, I think it’s important for them to wait a good long time before making anything official. Ten years should be sufficient. [People]

Justin Bieber says it’s “factually impossible” to have committed a sexual assault in 2014, because he’s got receipts showing that he was with his then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez. Many, many receipts.

“I don’t normally address things as I have dealt with random accusations my entire career but after talking with my wife and team I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight,” Bieber wrote on Twitter. He made an exception here, because “Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly.”

According to his accuser, Danielle, Bieber forced himself on her in a room at the Four Seasons in Austin on March 9, 2014.


“What this person did not know was that I attended that show with my then gf Selena Gomez,” Bieber wrote. And herewith are the receipts:


In conclusion:

“Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed. However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action.” [Page Six]

When my baby was born few weeks early this year, and I was in ICU and my baby was in Special Care, I was asked several times what her name was. Like, I saw her for 30 seconds before we were both whisked away and I really had no idea what she looked like. I don’t understand picking a name before you look at them. Like, yes to a list of possibilities. With our first we had a list and went with something not on the list at all.
