Celebrity Scandals: Gossip Center http://gossipcenter.com/site/rss2 en Gossipcenter.com Copyright 2010 Celebrity-Gossip.net - All Rights Reserved Wed, 23 Apr 2014 09:28:33 -0400 Justin Bieber Apologizes for Controversial Yasukini Shrine Visit http://gossipcenter.com/justin-bieber/justin-bieber-apologizes-controversial-yasukini-shrine-visit-1587515 During his Tokyo visit, Justin Bieber stopped at Japan’s notorious Yasukini Shrine, which pays tribute to WWII criminals and is a breeding ground for political debate.

Clearly not keen to the history, the 20-year-old singer tweeted a photo showing him bowing his head in front of the shrine’s entrance with the caption, "Thank you for your blessings.”

The snapshot gained nearly 700,000 likes and multiple retweets before Bieber caught wind of the controversy behind the shrine.

Justin quickly removed the photo and replaced it with the Time cover of his visit, writing, “While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine. I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan.”

The shrine honors Japan’s war dead, including former military leaders from the country’s imperial army who committed mass atrocities across Asia and the Pacific during World War II. It is still a very sensitive subject of conflict for Japanese and Chinese citizens.

Daniel Franzese Comes Out in Letter to his "Mean Girls" Character http://gossipcenter.com/celebrity-news/daniel-franzese-comes-out-letter-his-mean-girls-character-1124181 His role as an openly gay teen in the hit "Mean Girls" brought him much attention, and now Daniel Franzese revealed that he is also gay in an open letter to his character in the film, Damian.

Published on Indiewire, the letter touches on the actor's feelings about playing the role, as well as why he waited so long to come out.

He writes, in part, “You became an iconic character that people looked up to.I wished I’d had you as a role model when I was younger. It might’ve been easier to be gay growing up. You WERE beautiful in every single way and words couldn’t bring you down.”

“There were industry people who had seen me play you in Mean Girls but never seen me read in an audition but still denied me to be seen for ‘masculine’ roles. Damian, you had ruined my life and I was really pissed at you,” he wrote. “I became celibate for a year and a half. I didn’t go to any gay bars, have any flings and I lied to anyone who asked if I was gay. I even brought a girl to the ‘Mean Girls’ premiere and kissed her on the red carpet, making her my unwitting beard.”

On his decision to come out, Daniel wrote “Perhaps this will help someone else. I had to remind myself that my parents named me Daniel because it means ‘God is my judge.’ So, I’m not afraid anymore of Hollywood, the closet or mean girls. Thank you for that, Damian. (And Tina.)”

In a recent interview with the Telegraph, the “Other Woman” star says she could have a child if she wanted to.

She divulged, "I've never said never to anything in life. If I wanted kids, at any point in life, I would have them. But I'm certain that if at any point I wanted a child that child would find its way into my life, whether through adoption, or through being in a relationship with somebody who has a child."

"I can't see the future, but one thing I do know is that I'm not childless. I have a ton of children in my life. I can have a kid any second, if I want. All my friends would be like, 'Sure, come and get them,” she explained.

Going deeper, Cameron continued "It's not like I'm the spinster who didn't have a child. I just didn't do that in life and I'm OK with that. I know the choices I made. I know why I made them. I'm very much a person who lives in the moment. When you come from where I do, there are so many ways my life could have gone."
