    jared, you’re so lucky that you met miley :)
    she’s my role modell

  • Well Well Well

    @Domino: It’s positive because Jared never slams the celebs… unlike the POS Perez. The comments are a different story however…

  • bajan


  • Frida

  • Kirsten

    How prestigious. Congrats Jared and all of your staff! I have been a fan of this blog for almost five years. Now my friends and family also read it. All of your posts are so positive and unbiased. I’m a college journalist and your site is so refreshing. Keep up the great work. We’re all rooting for you!

    Positivity in terms of JJ’s objectiveness – you never see him write anything negative about anyone. Hes mostly objective; Sometimes you can tell when he likes a celeb – but you will never know who he doesnt like. Where as people like perez are so vicious to the ones they dont like and smother you with people they do like.

    The only place on JJ which is negative are the comments section but theres nothing he can do about that. Well he did take away the thumbs up/down button but thats all he can really do lol. Congrats JJ – and keep up the good work :)

  • cheryl

    so proud of you jared!!!
    i’ve always visited your site for ages and i wish you even more success!!!

  • Dubya Bush

    @Domino: That has nothing to do with Jared. It has to do with the trolls on this site. Every site has them. You can’t make people not be assholes no matter how nice your post are.

  • hyoid

    Congrats Jared and thanks for bringing the thumbs back!!!

  • Well Well Well

    @Anita: I totally agree. There are some celebs that jared obviously favors (Brad & Angelina, Zac & Vanessa,etc..) but he is nice to everyone. That’s why I love this site.

  • laverdadduele

  • the_boyfriend

    nice read, congrats.
    i’ve been here since the start, the only complaint i have is you letting illiterate people have multiple accounts to spam the comments, it takes away from discussion which used to be a part of this site.

  • Barbara
