Brad Pitt on Marriage, ‘Moneyball,’ and Misery

Brad Pitt has been mighty chatty lately, what with a lengthy Entertainment Weekly interview in September and now a one-on-one with the Hollywood Reporter. As Pitt faces 50 in less than two years, the Oscar-nominated actor has become more sanguine about opening up--and when he opens up, eye-opening details come pouring out about marriage, "Moneyball," and misery.
Pitt has actually brought up marriage talk with his famous partner of seven years, Angelina Jolie. Pitt dropped hints to Ellen DeGeneres and USA Today in September. "We'd actually like to," he tells the Hollywood Reporter, "and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it 'til everyone can. But I don't think we'll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids ... and it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment."
That so-called "declaration" surfaced in an October 2006 Esquire interview, when he stated, "Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able." Jolie, for her part, admitted in a 2010 Nightline interview that "it'd be hard to say 'No' to the kids. They're not asking." Now they're asking, and Pitt's applying the word "ludicrous" to their marital boycott.

Rihanna Gets Tupac ‘Thug Life’ Tattoo On Hands

Who knew that Rihanna was such a big Tupac Shakur fan?
Rihanna unveiled Wednesday a tattoo of one of the slain rapper's most popular sayings across her fists, "THUG LIFE." Tupac actually had the words tattooed on his abdomen.
The "Good Girl Gone Bad" singer made her Twitter announcement with a quote from the chorus of Meek Mill's song "Tupac Back." "All these b*tches screaming that 2pac back," she wrote on her page on the social networking site.
"I #LOVE my new tattoo!!!," she added. "Can't wait for yall to se it!!! I got it in "Tibetan" this time!!!"
Rihanna's shocking new tattoo prompted Thug Life to become a trending topic on Twitter.
In the picture posted on Lockerz, Rihanna shows off the artwork on her knuckles. Her hair is poufy and curly and she's wearing a John Lennon t-shirt. Rihanna also tweeted a picture with gangsta villain actor Danny Trejo, who she saw in the tattoo parlor.
Thug Life is also the name of a rap group formed by Tupac. The members included Tupac's stepbrother Mopreme Shakur, Rated R, Big Syke, and Macadoshis. Their 1994 album, "Thug Life: Volume 1," included the single "Pour Out A Little Liquor." The album was certified gold.

CONFESSIONS OF A FACEBOOK EMPLOYEE: What It's Really Like Working For Zuckerberg

By Array | Business Insider
Later this year, Facebook is expected to IPO at a valuation close to $100 billion.
More than anyone else, the person responsible for that success is Facebook's 27-year-old cofounder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
What's it like working for him?
We know a lot about what he was like as a boss during Facebook's early days. 
Along with some Harvard friends and a buddy at Stanford, Zuckerberg started working on Facebook in a dorm way back in 2004. Back then, according to personal messages we've viewed and written about in the past, Zuckerberg the boss was cut-throat, comfortable leading others, and sometimes awkward about sharing success.

Does Chewing Gum Make You Smarter?

While chewing gum may not make you look more intelligent, it actually boosts brainpower, new research shows.

People have been chewing gum for about 9,000 years, with ancient Greeks, Mayans and Native Americans popping wads of tree sap or resin in their mouths to freshen their breath.

This enduring habit also sharpens our wits in several surprising ways. Here’s a look at the mental benefits:

Better Mental Performance

A 2011 study published in the journal Appetite tested the effects of chewing gum—either sugar-free or sugar-added—on 159 undergraduate students. Half chomped gum before or throughout taking a battery of difficult mental tests, such as reciting lists of random numbers backwards or solving logic puzzles, and the other half (the control group) didn’t.

Chris Brown Makes His Love For Karrueche Permanent?! (PHOTOS)

We may have been so caught up with Chris Brown's recent vow of interview silence that we forgot to take a look at his artistic expressions: his tattoos.

It seems like the R&B singer has a tattoo of girlfriend Karrueche Tran's face on his arm!

The tattoo is a replica of a photo shoot image of Karrueche with a war-painted face and tousled wet hair slightly covering her face. The tattoo is located on Chris' upper arm near his elbow amidst a sea of other ink jobs.

The tattoo came like a phantom in the night while the media was concentrating on Chris Brown exchanging subliminal tweets with RiRi.

We guess Chris had to tat her face on him to let Karrueche know that it was real!
