Over the weekend, Justin Bieber thrilled a group of teens by showing up to their prom at Chatsworth Charter High in Los Angeles. It’s since been revealed, however, that Justin hadn’t been invited to the event, reportedly “pushed” his way in past security and angered Chatsworth’s dorky-ass school administration.
...The L.A. Unified School District thinks Justin’s surprise dance appearance put students at risk. A district rep tells TMZ, “His entourage pushed past the school’s security to gain access to the dance floor” ... and administrators were worried they wouldn’t be able to control the crowd.
Justin had been recording on the lot — something the school says it was aware of ... however, they were “assured that he would not come out to interfere.”
Bieber’s rep tells us no one tried to stop him when he walked in at the request of a few students he met on the lot. The rep adds, “It’s unfortunate they’re trying to make this a negative thing. It was awesome for all the kids.”
The school does acknowledge the kids had a “once in a lifetime experience” — but adds its main concern was for the safety of the kids and Justin.
Here’s where Justin should give a speech about how prom is for everyone: the jocks, the nerds, the burnouts, and the 21-year-old pop stars who weren’t invited/don’t attend the high school.
The Wire creator David Simon, who probably makes his family call him KING BALTIMORE when ever they’re alone at home, has written a blog post calling for an end to violence and riots in the Maryland city, writing, “The anger and the selfishness and the brutality of those claiming the right to violence in Freddie Gray’s name needs to cease.”
Following his interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce Jenner told Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox that “This is like another gold medal...This is better than a gold medal.” The pair have been in conversation for months with Laverne offering insights to Bruce throughout his transition.
“Bruce’s story is very specific,” Laverne told MSNBC, continuing:
Most trans people don’t have that kind of privilege. At the end of the day, the visibility that I had last year and continue to have, didn’t save Blake Brockington from suicide, didn’t save Leelah Alcorn from suicide, didn’t save the seven trans women who were murdered the first eight weeks of this year. So visibility matters, but structural change and policy change is what needs to happen so the lives of all trans people will be better.”
