Justin Combs, Son of Diddy, Gets Football Scholarship

P. Diddy’s son Justin Combs has received a football scholarship to UCLA, according to published reports.

I’m glad things are working out for Diddy, aka Sean Combs. Poor guy hasn’t had much success. Oh wait.

Anyway, good for Justin. The Winnipeg Free Press says that Diddy is proud of his kid (kiddy?), adding, “This is one of the proudest moments of my life. This is everything a father could want for his son, for him to excel at what he loves to do.”

Fair enough. Not having to pay for college is nice too.

Lindsay Lohan a Suspect in Assault Case at Rehab [Blame The Parents?]

I’m not the fan of celebrity news that some folks are, but I admit to having an above average interest in the train-wreck that is Lindsay Lohan. She went to rehab, which is usually a good thing. But according to People.com, Lohan is now a suspect in an assault case.

At what point do you do some kind of major league intervention? Or lock up her parents? Michael Lohan will probably be on any talk show who will have him, talking about his daughter. And Dina. Is she any better? Didn’t she try to turn Lindsay’s younger sister into a star, despite the fact that things were going less than well for her older daughter?

It can’t be JUST the pressures of celebrityhood that turns someone into a kook. Look at Mel Gibson. No, really. Look at him. He’s holding a beaver.

In August it was reported that Mel Gibson’s father thinks the Pope is gay. And then there’s that whole “the Holocaust didn’t happen” thing. We can safely imagine that Mel probably grew up hearing that kind of stuff all the time. (We weren’t there, hence the “probably.”)

Having crazy parents has to be a contributing factor when an adult turns out nutty. Right?
