Some dude tattooed Maddox Jolie Pitt onto his right arm. People, if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times – do not read "US Weekly" while under the influence of alcohol. One minute you’re flipping pages and making catty remarks about people’s dresses, the next thing you know you’re pants are off, your house is on fire, someone has taken out a restraining order against you and you’ve got an adopted third-world child tattooed on your forearm. I’ve seen it a million times.

Lesson #84: "Enlisting a Pop Singer to Create a More Positive Image For Scandal-Plagued Client"
Let’s say you’re a publicist. And let’s say your client is the Roman Catholic Church. You should be eating, sleeping and breathing new ways to deflect negative attention from the church’s recent string of sexual abuse scandals. Your goal in life needs to be getting the church as far away from the "child molesters" stigma as possible.
But there’s only so much a sincerely worded, heartfelt press release can do. The Vatican can only make so many official statements condemning the actions of the offending clergy. Sometimes you need to go the extra step. Sometimes you just need a little more. Sometimes…you need to get children’s rights advocate Michael Jackson to record the prayers of the church’s holiest leader.

Some paparazzo is trying to file charges after being attacked while shooting photos at Chris Penn’s funeral.
Showing up at Sean Penn’s brother’s funeral and trying to take paparazzi pics is pretty much like showing up at a Black Panther meeting in Klan Robes. Sorta had it coming, bro. Also, mental note – even though he may look all "indie and sensitive" you DO NOT f*ck with Mark Ruffalo.
