Nicole Richie’s Second Child

Harlow (so cute!) And Nicole

Nicole and Harlow (so cute!)

Hollywood socialite Nicole Richie has given birth to her second child in Los Angeles.

Richie, 27, and musician partner Joel Madden welcomed a baby boy to join big sister Harlow, 20 months – and their newborn son continues the long-running Hollywood tradition of celebrity offspring being bestowed with offbeat names.

“In the middle of night, the very early hours of September 9, 2009, Sparrow James Midnight Madden was born to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. He weighs 7 lbs. 14 oz. Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes,” a statement on Richie’s official website read.

She was jailed in Los Angeles while pregnant with her daughter Harlow after being charged with driving under the influence. Richie was sentenced to four days, but was released due to overcrowding after just 82 minutes.

Since the birth of her daughter in January 2008, Richie has stayed busy designing a jewellery line, House of Harlow 1960, and recently released a line of maternity fashion in conjunction with US clothing line A Pea in the Pod.

Richie and Madden, 30, have been a couple for two-and-a-half years.

Okay- two things- what does her being jailed have to do with this article? Are they trying to prove something here, like perhaps, she is not a good mother? Or are they just putting in the piece of information for the sake of spicing up something that isn’t scandalous enough for the sake of gossip? I’m not a fan of Nicole Richie or anything, but I think that is slightly unfair that they had to state that and even more wrong because they stated it so vaguely. And again- she was released ‘after just 82 minutes’- for the love of God the woman is pregnant! They make it sound like it was absolutely incredulous to let her go. I mean, they just said that she was pregnant and then they say that she was released due to overcrowding making it sound like it was because she threw a tantrum or something. I’m not saying she was right to be driving intoxicated while she was pregnant- she’s at fault there, definitely.
Is it me or is this article a bit ambiguous?
Leave a comment and let me know what you think about this in general, even if it is just to say how cute Harlow is!

Demi Cutting Herself…Again?

Pictures have been surfacing of Demi Lovato, the sixteen-year-old singer and actress currently touring with American Idol 2008 runner-up David Archuleta, showing her with what appear to be wounds on her wrist similar to cutting scars. Is the starlet harming herself?

This isn’t the first time that Lovato has had to fight these rumors. Following her appearance at Miley Cyrus’s birthday party last fall, pictures showed Lovato with red marks on her wrist that made it look as though she had been self-mutilating. A representative for Lovato said, “Demi was wearing gummy bracelets just prior to her appearance on the red carpet and, because of how tight they were, they left indentations on her wrist.”

Just my personal opinion here so correct me if I’m wrong, but if they really were ‘indentations’ from ‘gummy bracelets’ then wouldn’t they go all the way around the wrist? In the pictures below, it’s hard to believe they are marks from super-tight bracelets. And considering it’s happened more than once I’m going to be bold here and put myself with the people who believe she is cutting herself.Oct 15 Mileys b-day party

Like Miley, Demi is a role model to a lot of young fans and if she really is cutting herself (one thing to understand here is that no one really  knows for sure-there are a lot of ifs here) then it’s best for her to get some help. It’s something many teenagers do to release stress and you don’t have to be an emo to be cutting yourself (that’s such a common stereotype). But let’s keep in mind that a starlet like herself is under a lot of pressure and stress. Just because she’s rich and popular does not mean she has no personal problems in her life. Forget her personal life, but just the pressure of being the most popular in the Disney world is enough to cause depression. Let’s not forget that she is human too and people make mistakes and they have different ways of dealing with them and I’m not trying to say it’s okay for people to harm themselves, I’m just saying that if that’s the way Demi decided to deal with her problems then that’s her choice. I think we can all grant her that much freedom and privacy.
