Given his background in the entertainment business and his massive net worth, Jerry Seinfeld has a unique perch above our rapidly-developing, tech-crazy society.
The “Bee Movie” star is featured on the cover of Wired magazine’s July 2014 issue and in his interview he shares some tips for “how not to be a jerk in the digital age.”
Seinfeld suggests ditching Google Glass for the time being- “Between the in-group tiered rollout and the $ 1,500 price point, Glass is an in-your-face marker of social class – a symbol of self importance that suggest the wearer has too much money and too little fashion sense — and that’s caused a backlash.”
“It’s banned from restaurants, a woman was assaulted for wearing Glass inside a San Francisco dive bar, and a group called Stop the Cyborgs is campaigning for Glass-free zones. So for now, wear Glass only when the technology it will eventually supplant is heavily prevalent. Dive bar? No. Tech conference with 75 percent of the people on a laptop or cellphone? Yes.”
Additionally, Jerry encourages drunken Tinder activity- “Tinder and intoxication are meant for each other. That’s because they tap into the same kind of behavior. ‘When intoxicated, you’re making decisions based on a fragment of understanding,’ says social psychologist Claude Steele. A mere four photos and a tagline forces people to make decisions based on a cursory grasp of the situation. A sober person might balk at those limitations. Let those worrywarts obsess over their OkCupid profiles!”
And when it comes to posting pictures of your children, simmer down! “It’s tempting to saturate your social media feeds with your child’s awesomeness. But what begins as a desire to share your tyke’s first steps can quickly devolve into a hunt for Likes, faves, and comments.”
“At this point you have become a stage mom, with all the attendant’s issues. ‘The child may begin to feel responsible for their parent’s happiness, and that’s quite a burden to carry,’ says Leslie Anderson, a University of Manitoba researcher who has studied child actors. So yes, share some cute pictures. But don’t set your kid on the same path as the cast of Diff’rent Strokes.”
Finally, it’s perfectly acceptable to view R-rated movies on flights- “Coach class isn’t a Puritan church service, and you shouldn’t feel ashamed about watching a video with a little bump-and-grind. Your real concern is noise. ‘The biggest complaint we get about electronic devices, by far, is that they’re too loud,’ says Shawn Kathleen, a veteran flight attendant. We’re pretty good a keeping our eyes to ourselves, but not so much our ears. So while the occasional flash of buttocks is fine, make sure that nothing audible disturbs your neighbors.”
She’s served as an ambassador for UNICEF for years, and Selena Gomez recently traveled to Nepal to raise awareness of the impoverished children.
Now that she’s returned, the “Come and Get It” songstress has shared photos and video footage of her journey in an effort to show fans the dire conditions abroad.
Gomez explained, “This visit to Nepal was extraordinarily powerful — at times, devastating and heartbreaking, but also incredibly inspiring.”
“At first when you witness children living in extreme poverty, you wonder how it is possible that they can be deprived of their basic human needs and rights. Then you talk to these children and you see hope, promise and a bright future.”
Selena concluded, “I’m so proud to serve as a UNICEF Ambassador and be part of a greater movement to help the world’s children.”
Taking a moment to candidly talk about her normally-private personal life, Halle Berry opened up about her growing family during a recent sit-down with “Extra.”
Sharing her joy following the birth of her five-month-old son Maceo, the Oscar-winning actress gushed, “I just feel great because I have another baby. I never thought that at my stage in life another baby — and a baby boy — was coming to me, so yeah, I’m blessed.”
Dishing about how her 5-year-old daughter Nahla is adjusting to having a little brother, Halle shared, “It’s like one of her doll babies came alive. She gets to take care of him, feed him, change his diapers, play with him, dress him up in different clothes like five times a day because she can, so she loves it.”

Hitting her first on-screen interview since her much-talked about Vogue cover, Kim Kardashian made an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Tuesday (March 25).
The 33-year-old reality star looked ravishing as she stepped out of her New York City abode in a see-through lace dress that showed off her black undergarments and made her way to the studio.
While there, Seth asked about the topic that’s on everyone’s minds at the moment, the current issue of Vogue magazine in which Kardashian and her fiancee Kanye West cover.
Talking about keeping the gig hush hush, Kim said, “It was this top secret mission trying to keep out all of my sisters and everyone from this shoot. They were a little suspicious but I just said Kanye was shooting something at my mom’s house and it was really private.”

Her open letter in the New York Times detailing the abuse at the hands of adoptive father Woody Allen drew a lot of attention, but Dylan Farrow has no regrets about her decision to speak out.
In an interview with People, the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and the famed director shares, ” It took all of my strength and all of my emotional fortitude to do what I did this week in the hope that it would put the truth out there. That is my only ammunition. I don’t have money or publicists or limos or fancy apartments in Manhattan. All I have is the truth and that is all I put out there.”
Refuting claims that she wrote it during awards season to sabotage her father and vindicate her mother, the 28-year-old writer responds, “I’ve been hearing that a lot. I’m happy to answer that. My intention in writing that piece was to put the truth on paper from a voice that was not able to speak before.”
Though she knew there’d be backlash, she didn’t expect the “betrayal” of her brother Moses, sobbing, “My brother has broken my heart. Moses divorced himself from the family a long time ago. I always missed him. I loved him and I kept him in my thoughts. These lies – this betrayal – is unfathomable to me coming from a brother I loved and cherished and grew up with.”
Crushed, Dylan continued, “My memories are true. What happened to me as a little girl … is my cross to bear. But I will not see my family dragged down like this. I can’t stay silent when my family needs me.”
Despite their issues, Ms. Farrow insists, “I love my family so much. We are a strong family. We are a loving family. We are a brave family. We are fighters. I love my mother so much.”

Hard at work preparing for her residency in Las Vegas, Britney Spears arrived in style at a dance studio in Sherman Oaks, C.A. this morning (October 24).
Wearing her hair up in a messy bun, the “Work Bitch” singer showed off a pair of aviators, and wore a cream blouse, black skinnies and tan heel boots.
The 31-year-old pop singer is rehearsing for her upcoming two-year stint in Las Vegas, which kicks off on December 27th of this year, however her upcoming performances are rumored to fall short of excellence, due to rumors that Britney will lip-sync her songs.
Denying such accusations, Britney responded on Chicago’s 103.5 KISS FM earlier in October, saying, “I’m definitely going to be singing live. I always sing live. It doesn’t sound so great all the time, but I do my best.”
Her red carpet getup’s appear effortless, but Emma Watson can admit she always puts in extra effort when preparing for the flashing lights.
In the latest issue of Net-A-Porter’s The Edit, the “Harry Potter” beauty opens up about her work with the Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) and also shares her special routine to prevent any public outing woes.
Check out a few highlights from Miss Watson’s interview below. For more, be sure to visit The Edit!
On her career:
“I don’t do anything by halves. I have to go all in. I just want things to be perfect. If I’m going to put my name on it, I want it to be something I love.”
On the Green Carpet Challenge:
“I was like, ‘No one’s doing anything like this!’ It’s so exciting. I’ve always had this huge problem, I would love to wear garments that are ethically sourced, but there aren’t enough options for me to be able to do that realistically. [So when she met Livia Firth] it seemed like [the project] was something I had to do, something I’ve been waiting for.”
On her red carpet dress tests:
“Getting ready for an event can feel like a lot of pressure. You have to consider, ‘Will people see up my skirt? If a flash goes off, can you see through this?’ So I’ll do a test sitting, a testing standing… it’s nerve-wrecking. People really scrutinize. On the red carpet, I’m usually in so much discomfort – my shoes are uncomfortable, I can’t breathe in the dress. I don’t compromise like that in my everyday style.”
On her People Tree collection:
“Though they were tiny collections, they seemed to raise awareness and groundswell of interest.”
