Paris Jackson decided to embrace her fame for the greater good of the world

Michael Jackson's daughter spoke at People's One's to Watch Party about her decision to become a model and actress.

Paris said she initially had other plans for her life:
“I originally wanted to just kind of stay out of the spotlight and become a psychologist or a nurse at a psychiatric ward,”

But she made the decision to enter public life right before her high school graduation:
“I realized it would be a shame to waste the platform I was given,” she says. “Having the ability to go into the acting and fashion world, I just figured why not use that to make my platform bigger. That way, instead of helping the world one by one with patients, I could help the masses.”

She's currently the face of Calvin Klein and is set to make her big-screen debut alongside Amanda Seyfried next year.

Kazuo Ishiguro wins the 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature

The Nobel Prize for Literature has been awarded to British novelist Kazuo Ishiguro, the author of such works as The Remains of the Day (winner of the Booker Prize in 1989) and Never Let Me Go.

He is the 114th Laureate, the eleventh British writer to win, and the fifth Laureate of East Asian descent. This is also, for trivia fans, the first time since 1993 when back-to-back Laureates have written in the same language -- English in both cases. Last year, Bob Dylan won; 1993 was the last of three back-to-back-to-back English-writing Laureates (Nadine Gordimer of South Africa, Derek Walcott of Saint Lucia, and Toni Morrison of the United States).

As somebody with a long-term goal to read all the Laureates, I'd like to thank the Swedish Academy for not only selecting a worthy winner, but a worthy winner I'd already covered, and thus not adding anybody to my to-read list.

King of Pop Justin Bieber's Bad Boy Reputation Has Left Him Virtually Homeless

Biebs just can't catch a break. Despite being the only artist still played on the radio, the Grammy award winning global superstar can't find a home because elderly Beverly Hills homeowners haven't forgiven him for peeing in a mop bucket.

Bustin Jieber has been trying to rent a home in the affluent neighborhood for $10,000 a month, but residents have banded together to blacklist him from the area. The neighbors have heard tell of his old partying ways and his team's legal battles to pay for damages.

Biebs has been living in a hotel since he cannot find a place to call his own. Is it too late now to say sorry? Someone should mail those homeowners a print out of stewie_e's special report proving that he's repented and has been born again.

Brielle threw some words in about how Nene is constantly disrespectful and thinks she is better than everyone else.

  • Fast forward to this past weeks cast trip to Barcelona where Kim was disinvited. Turns around it was all of the girls who didn't want Kim there because she refused to come without Kroy and no one else's husband was coming.

  • They called Kim up during the trip and the topic of her being disinvited came up. Kim hung up the call and then sent Sheree a video which Sheree showed to the group on camera.

  • In this video, taken weeks ago at Nene's white party, Brielle is seen showing roaches crawling all around the bathroom and another room making derogatory and racial remarks about the state of Nene's home.

How Both Br_ndon's from The Killers & Panic! At The Disco Remained Relevant Today

A little background on these two bands: The Killers and Panic! @ The Disco are both from Las Vegas. Lead singer of The Killers, Brandon Flowers, was not a fan of Brendon Urie / Panic! nor Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy (who signed Panic!) in the beginning.

Flowers and his band even went as far as trying to order drinks from Pete Wentz and his band FOB at the MTV Video Music Awards because he thought they were waiters.

Brandon eventually made amends and apologized in 2006 to Brendon and Panic! for suggesting they were piggybacking off the success of Fall Out Boy. Flowers on Panic!: "I don’t even know what their music’s like, or if I would even like it. That made me feel even worse, to think they could have been fans of ours and I hurt their feelings. That’s just stupid.”

13 years later, both bands debuted on the Billboard 200 at no. 1 with their respective fifth albums. The Killers with "Wonderful Wonderful" and Brendon!Panic! @ The Disco with "Death of a Bachelor."
