I don’t know what I expected from this global phenomenon, but it wasn’t the endearing mixture of warmth, wit, intelligence and larky self-knowledge that I found. There were comments she made about her work that I have no doubt she has come out with before – goodness knows, in my own small way I’ve...

Justin Bieber? Well at least his name isn’t recognized by spell check… yet anyways.  Why is Bieber so famous?  It’s easy.  He is living the American dream.  We all want success that we don’t deserve and he is getting it.  Once he hits puberty will have to change his tune pun intended because he...
