Four Books by Celebrities that you SHOULD Read

Many celebrities have taken time out of there oh-so-busy lives to write books so that the rest of us not-so-famous people can get a peep into their lives. It’s really generous of them and if you’re like me, you love to read these books and learn more about your favorite star’s life. Here, I’ve listed just a few great celebrity books that you should definitely read!

  1. The first to make the list is one of my favorite! “Yes Please” by Amy Poehler is a must read! The star of Parks and Recreation wrote a book that was released in 2014 that will keep you in stitches the entire time. Amy, being a comedian, doesn’t lose her personality throughout the entire book. She gives all of her readers insight on how childhood, teenage, and adult life. It’s inspiring and funny…it’s truly a must read!

  2. Of course if you read “Yes Please,” you need to read Tina Fey’s book “Bossy Pants.” The two books, like the inseparable women who wrote them, go well together. “Bossy Pants,” has the type of humor that we have all come to love from Tina Fey. It has a strong feminist message and keeps the reader very entertained. If you loved Tina on Saturday Night Live, you’ll love “Bossy Pants!”

  3. Another great book by a celebrity is “I Hate Everyone…Starting With Me” by the late Joan Rivers. Joan, luckily for us, took notes on many of the hateful things she saw, did and said throughout her life. She, of course, doesn’t have much of a filter…so when it came to writing a book, she put all of her unfiltered thoughts into it. She appeals to us all by telling the harsher side of many celebrities and even herself.

  4. Ellen DeGeneres has also published several books. Her latest book, “Seriously…I’m Kidding,” might be the funniest yet. The book will seriously have you laughing out loud as you’re trying to quietly read in the local Starbucks. While some of the chapters don’t have a super serious point, Ellen delivers great advice throughout her book and reminds us all to not take life too seriously.

Fashion Police Shake-Up

This year at the Oscars, the Fashion Police were adapting to one major change: it was their first Academy Awards without Joan Rivers, who died in September at the age of 81. The hit show had been off the air since Rivers’ death, and their return to television was anything but smooth.

Giuliana Rancic, a prominent member of Fashion Police, got herself into some trouble when she made a racist comment about former Disney star, Zendaya. Rancic criticized the actress’s dreadlocks by saying, “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil… maybe weed.” The comment immediately did not sit well with the public, particularly Zendaya. She took to twitter to address the issue, tweeting, “There is a fine line between what is funny and disrespectful… I was hit with ignorant slurs and pure disrespect.” The actress went on to say that Rancic’s comment was based off of a stereotype and was incredibly offensive. 

Zendaya took this particularly personally because many of her family members have dreadlocks as well, and she respects them a lot.
