Amy Winehouse Dead

Amy Winehouse Dead

It's been reported that pop singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her London flat this afternoon around 4:00pm. The cause is as of yet unexplained by authorities. Winehouse had been spotted alongside goddaughter Dionne Bromfield this week as the teenager took to the stage at the iTunes festival.

The passing will be a sad loss to the pop world and her music has been lauded for a long time for being inspirational to many and she has influenced many others in her wake. The 27 year old had a long history of substance abuse and mental health issues and received much publicity due to these problems. Sources also say that it is allegedly an overdose of drugs and drink which has caused the death. Paramedics were called to her house today but she was dead before they could perform any resuscitation.

So a very tragic end to the life of a young performer and will be very sadly missed by a horde of fans and followers.

bam margera

bam margera

The sad news has emerged that fearless stunt addict Ryan Dunn has passed away aged 34. Reports say his life was claimed in a car crash which happened in Pennsylvania early Monday morning. Dunn appeared in all three Jackass films alongside Bam Margera and Johnny Knoxville and his major claim to fame was shoving a toy car up his rectum in the first Jackass film in 2002.

Police told media that Dunn's 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 was situated "off the road and in the woods" in West Goshen Township. They found Dunn alongside Dunn an unidentified passenger and they both were said to have died around 3 a.m. "as a result of injuries sustained in the accident." It's unknown whether alcohol was involved in the catastrophe but authorities claim "Speed may have been a contributing factor," cops added. Late Sunday, however, Dunn tweeted a pic of himself drinking with pals.

So sad news for friends and family of the actor and taken away at such a young age makes it such a tragedy.

bolivia

bolivia

Reports have emerged from Bolivia where police have discovered a 21 year old son who had been locked in a wooden box for 8 weeks, and put there by his own father. Johan Knelson was made to live in the nine feet by six feet box in the basement for allegedly robbing livestock, his father revealed and he also stated that his son was mentally ill.

"I went out, and when I came back they were angry with me here at home. Some people tied me up and put me in here, eight weeks ago," the 21-year-old told reporters. Knelson had to eat, sleep and go to the toilet inside the box according to reports. "I ate and slept here. I did everything here. I ate and drank water and washed here," he said. Santa Cruz police had to convince the Mennonite father to release his son from the box.

So a harrowing tale from South America and reportedly the family were punishing the son this way as they strictly followed teachings from the bible and shunned technology.

amy winehouse

amy winehouse

Lately Amy Winehouse has been set free from rehab and had been given the all clear to venture out on her European tour but after last night's display in Serbia it seems that the exit from rehab was premature. The singer was booed as she performed or more, TRIED to perform in front of fans in Serbia.

Her display definitely gave the impression that she was under the influence as she hobbled around the stage and slurred her words to the dismay of onlookers. She also appeared a whole hour late which wouldn't have helped the mood of the crowd to begin with. During the show she sat down on one of the speakers ad fixed her shoes as one of her backing singers went to her to try and show support and helped her back to the microphone.

She missed cues, forgot words and tried to perform, oblivious to how bad she was being received by the audience. Not a night to remember!

Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney

The history of The Beatles may have been more extraordinary had they not disbanded but it's something we'll never know but it's come to light from a latest radio interview with Paul McCartney that John lennon was the reason behind the band parting ways for good. McCartney was being interviewed by radio host Geoff Lloyd on Absolute Radio this week.

The Beatles hung up their boots back in 1970 after the recording of "Let It Be" and the famous four played their last concert at Apple Records headquarters in London in 1969. McCartney talking of the event said: “Basically me, George [Harrison] and Ringo [Starr] said ‘Does this have to be final, could we do a couple of gigs or can we think about this tomorrow?’, but John was off with Yoko and he was saying ‘No, no, it’s great, I feel a release’ and all that.” “So that was kind of final,” McCartney added.

So certainly a stark message to anybody still in doubt over reason behind the demise of the band at the turn of the 1970's.

tupac

tupac

A criminal has confessed to authorities that he was the culprit behind the 1994 robbery and shooting of Tupac Shakur that triggered the bloody rivalry that ultimately led to the rapper's murder two years later in 1996. The man's name is Dexter Isaac, who is now serving a life imprisonment for murder and he has claimed to website allhiphop.com that he robbed the rapper outside the Quad Studio in Manhattan in November 1994 on the orders of hip hop management mogul James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond.

He says that Rosemond, the CEO of Czar Entertainment who manages Mike Tyson and Sean Kingston, gave him $2,500 "plus all the jewelry" except for one ring the CEO wanted for his girlfriend. The CEO confessed to authorities last month after a fugitive warrant was issued for his arrest in relation to federal cocaine distribution charges.

So a shocking development in the murder case of Tupac Shakur and with this evidence authorities may be able to come across more in the coming future.

Joss Stone

Joss Stone

It's been reported that two men have been arrested regarding a murder plot revolved around British pop singer Joss Stone. The police have confirmed to BBC news that the two men are now being held in custody near Joss Stone's home in Devon, England.
The men, aged 30 and 33, are held by police as they are in suspicion of a plan to kill and rob the singer.

What prompted the police was a suspicious looking vehicle which was spotted in the Cullompton area and had been held by the law for "possession of offensive weapons and being equipped to steal." After they had been arrested, they were found to be holding swords, forensic-style overalls and drawn up plans of Stone's house and a body bag. Police added that the singer is aware of the arrests, although it is not known if she was home at the time they were made.

So a harrowing unearthed story found by the police and the singer will currently be distressed from the event.

Sean Bean

Sean Bean is used to playing characters whose main instinct is to go into battle, but the actor had to experience a real life battle on Sunday night when he was embroiled in a scrap and was subsequently stabbed in the arm during the fracar which happened at a London bar.

Witnesses told UK paper that the "Lord of the Rings"/"Game of Thrones" actor was with modern, April Summers and smoking outside a bar when a passerby made obscene comments towards her and then Bean in turn, chased the heccler down a street. The perpetrator returned to the scene later that evening, spied Bean and attacked him. It's reported he was punched in the face and then stabbed in the arm with broken glass.

Despite the attack, Bean opted not to go to the hospital and decided that a first aid kit was a suitable enough remedy. He then ordered another drink.

Gene Simmons

Gene Simmons

Gene Simmons is best known for being one of the faces of Kiss but maybe what he is just as well known for is bragging how many women he's bedded in his time (estimating in the region of 4,000). However one woman has had enough of his sexual conquest flaunting and that is the woman he lives with, Actress Shannon Tweed.

The pair made an appearance on the today show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, and Simmons and Tweed were visibly rattled, Tweed fuming and Simmons, who is usually a dab hand at one liners, pretty quiet relatively. It's said the unrest stems from a picture Tweed saw of Simmons with two women on his arm. On Gene's show, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," shown on "Today," she states that she's done and on their appearance on the today show, Tweed was pretty icy toward Simmons and didn't let up.

So it looks like Gene's marriage is on the rocks and his wildman antics have backfired disastrously.

Taylor Momsen

Taylor Momsen

She's stoked up controversy before with her outspoken opinions and punk rock demeanour but she raised the bar another big notch with her latest public appearance at the Download Festival at Donington Park in Leicestershire, with a very racy and shocking outfit.

The teenager donned a very loose-fitting top that exposed her breasts partially but showed consideration for onlookers by planting duct tape on her nipples to keep them covered! It definitely appeared to be a self made top as the sleeves looked to have been removed and the neck slashed. The T-Shirt was originally conceived by the band Sonic Youth and held the slogan "Confusion is Sex. Conquest For Death"

Taylor was at the event to perform with her band and did it before a rain soaked but responsive crowd.

Isla Fisher

Isla Fisher



Celebrity mother and wife of acclaimed comedian Sacha Baron-Cohen turned heads at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic event at Governor’s Island, New York, with a floral frock and orange shoes and a bag to match her fiery orange locks. The ensemble was definitely chosen with her vivid hair colour in mind and the head to toe outfit really complimented it.

The weather at the event was blustery as can be seen in other pictures of the star at the show and the weather has been up and down in recent weeks with it being 100 degrees one day and 60 degrees and raining the next day. The wind on the day was certainly unable to be ignored as you can see her having to withstand it on other photos.

Nevertheless, even in motherhood it goes to show that hollywood stars can still look as good as they ever have.

Jessica Simpson

In Touch, a Hollywood celebrity magazine published weekly, has reported that father of Jessica Simpson, Joe Simpson, is undecided whether he would want his daughter getting married to the former NFL player Eric Johnson.

It had initially been reported that the father of the famous hollywood actress had given his blessing regarding the event but now has had second thoughts because of the dependency it is alleged that the ex football player is placing on Jessica. He is also concerned as she is tending to be taking care of all finances as Eric Johnson is currently unemployed.

So there could be some unrest within the Simpson camp because of this hardship.

ides of march

ides of march

The saying "Beware The Ides Of March" is certainly a very well known one. It stems from William Shakespeare's famous play "Julius Caesar" when a passer by, as the story says, warns Julius Caesar that harm will possibly come his way "no later than the ides of March".

For those no longer privy to Shakespearian English, the "Ides" refers to the 15th of March, and, though it seems as if it were just New Year's last week, that day is a mere handful of hours away, occuring Tuesday. Though clearly the warning was meant for Caesar at the time, it seems as though there is still much to fear currently. Between the nuclear reactors in Japan refusing to cool and posing a huge threat to much of Asia, as well as the general natural disaster(s) in Japan on their own, it seems that it being wary of the Ides of March may still be a good idea.


So as the ides of march approaches tomorrow if you didn't know where the term came from, you do now.

daylight savings time

daylight savings time

Daylight savings time begins tonights which sees an extra hour of sunlight available in the evening which means backyard barbecues and other events that you want to partake in on the evening outside can last a little longer with more daylight to enjoy.

Set clocks ahead an hour before going to bed Saturday night, even though the change doesn't occur officially until 2 a.m. Sunday, local time. And safety experts say this also is a good time to put new batteries in smoke detectors and other warning devices. Some parts of the country don't observe daylight saving time. Those include Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.


So although you will be losing an hour in bed tonight the flipside is that there is an extra hour of daylight tomorrow and from now on on an evening.

nuclear reactor

nuclear reactor

The government of Japan are today scrambling to stamp out fears that there is a possibility of a nuclear meltdown upon there being an explosion inside a building where a power plant's reactor was situated. The country today are coming to terms with the devastation after the earthquake and tsunami which hit the country yesterday.

Government spokesman Yukio Edano said radiation levels were decreasing near the blast site in Fukushima and that the metal container protecting the reactor was not damaged. "We have confirmed that the walls of this building were what exploded, and it was not the reactor's container that exploded," Edano said. Television footage, however, showed large clouds of grey smoke pouring out the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant.
Earlier reports said radiation levels inside the plant surged to 1,000 times more than normal and a small leak was detected.


So chilling news from Japan and all prayers will be made that something very sinister doesn't emerge from this power plant reactor.

japan tsunami

japan tsunami

The most devastating and biggest earthquake to hit the country of Japan since records began 150 years ago, pummeled it's way into the northeast coast of the country today, which has went on to trigger a 32 foot tsunami that has been washing away everything in it's path.

Japanese television showed the vast wall of debris-filled water sweeping away cars, ships and even buildings. The 8.9-magnitude quake's epicenter was 231 miles northeast of Tokyo, the United States Geological Survey reported. But the destruction caused by the natural disaster is expected to spread far beyond Japan. So far, at least 32 people in Japan have been killed, and an unknown number injured, by the 8.9-magnitude quake and tsunami, the Kyodo news agency reported. But the sheer scale of the devastation suggests that the final death toll will be much higher.


So a shocking report from the far east and here's hoping that the disaster starts to ease as time goes on.

Mike Starr, The original bassist for legendary Grunge band Alice In Chains, has died at the age of 44. Police report that his body was located at a house in Salt Lake City, Utah on Tuesday Afternoon. The cause of death is currently unconfirmed but a spokesman from the police dept said: "There is nothing to indicate that this was foul play by another individual."

Starr battled drug addiction for many years, and went public with his substance abuse problems in 2010 when he appeared on Season 3 of VH1's 'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew.' Dr. Drew Pinsky expressed his condolences via Twitter: "Devastating to hear of Mike Starr succumbing to his illness. So very sad. Our prayers are with his family." He left Alice In chains shortly after the release of 1992's "Dirt" and later admitted that he left because of his drug addiction. His fellow band member, singer Layne Staley, died of a drug overdose in 2002.


So a sad end to the musician who will have been remembered with fond recollection by fans of the band.

Machete wielding maniac Charlie Sheen unleashed more scorn on Tuesday by attacking co-star Jon Cryer and his ex bosses in a heated video diatribe. He stared straight into the camera whilst smoking a cigarette and was seemingly reading the messages from cue cards.

"Jon has not called me," the out-of-control actor grumbled to E! Online. "He's a turncoat, a traitor, a troll." He vowed their relationship, like his job on "Two and a Half Men," is kaput - so Cryer shouldn't bother reaching out now."What's there to say? I'll tell him, 'You're a little late. Goodbye, troll,' " Sheen said."When I'm starring in multimillion-dollar films and he's begging me for a supporting role, I'll say: 'You left me out in the cold with all your guilt and stupidity."


So more venomous swiping by the fired star of Two and a Half Men and seemingly a very angry man.

Today sees the Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans to coincide with Fat Tuesday and it sees the Indian tribes group together in suits they have spent a whole year designing and creating. If you miss the Indian showing at the Mardi Gras you can still see them later when the Mardi Gras Indian Orchestra plays the Hi-Ho Lounge.

Out-of towners can enjoy the Rex and Zulu parades by renting stands along the route, and within the bounds of the French Quarter there are bands of revelers on foot. The Krewe of St. Anne marches from the Marigny down Royal Street. It disbands by afternoon, but there's still a magic to the day that can be best sustained by avoiding Bourbon Street. For breaks in the French Quarter, Café Envie, Cafe Beignet and CC's Community Coffeehouse have iced coffee, hot tea and pastries (Carnival carbs).


So plenty to enjoy at the event which will see many visitors and performers in the event which lasts for a while.

charlie sheen fired

Charlie Sheen has been hit with the news that his star role in the hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men" has been ended as he has been fired by his bosses. The actor wanted his bosses to say sorry to him and "lick his feet" but instead he's been shown the door from the programme.

 "After careful consideration, Warner Brothers Television has terminated Charlie Sheen's services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately," the studio said. Sheens reaction to it was: "This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension," Sheen said.


So a somewhat expected reaction from the bosses of the show who have decided that Sheen's reckless attitude can't be tolerated anymore.

fat tuesday

fat tuesday

Fat Tuesday is a celebration for people to live it up, party and unwind as a preparation for Ash Wednesday which takes place the following day where lent begins for many people but ironically a lot of people who celebrate the event don't even partake in any lent when Ash Wednesday arrives.

You will most likely see a slew of celebrities celebrating Fat Tuesday. Check out who has ties to New Orleans and Louisiana, which is the epicenter of Madri Gras celebrating in the United States. Sandra Bullock adopted a baby from New Orleans and bought a home there, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie spend a lot of time at their home in the French Quarter, also Ali Landry (a Cajun and Breaux Bridge native), of course celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse and Ellen DeGeneres (she’s a New Orleans native).


So certainly a very poignant day or many who start lent on Wednesday but also for many who just want an excuse to indulge.

The chant "Shake The Silles Out" is employed by pre school teachers to help calm down children in the group but from research it's been found that it doesn't work and in fact winds them up more.

The video coincided with a profile Couric did of the web comedy giant for "CBS Sunday Morning." In it, she heads over to a Chelsea preschool to tell a group of adorable tots that the home remedies they've been using to get the sillies (and the "crazies") out of their system are useless. "You're living a lie," Couric tells the children. But the tables are turned when Couric tries to shake her own sillies away--and winds up becoming the tallest preschool bully we've ever seen.


So a bizarre report which reveals the truth behind a well known system and done in a shock tactics style by the reporter!

kim kardashian song

kim kardashian song

Kim Kardashian has decided to branch out into the field of pop music and has tried her hand at it with the release of her first single entitled "Jam (Turn It Up)" on Ryan Seacrest's morning radio show. The song showcases a funky club beat to it and it's been reported that proceeds from its sale will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in L.A.

"It's only normal for me to be nervous. I'm human, I never sang before. This was definitely something I don't do, so for me to step outside my comfort zone to do this ... is like a really big deal," she said before Seacrest played the song. The newly minted singer has said she doesn't have plans to turn crooning (er, pretty much talking while music plays) into yet another new career. This was just a fun new experience! I am so glad I went for it! And the proceeds to JAM are being donated to St. Judes Children's hospital," she tweeted.


So a new turn for the reality TV star and whether it becomes a hit in the charts is to be seen.

charlie sheen twitter

charlie sheen twitter

Charlie Sheen has decided to join the world of Twitter on Tuesday offering a new portal into the hectic mind of the sacked sitcom star. He has described himself on his bio as "an unemployed winner" and collected 300,000 followers in the space of a few hours on the network site.

"Winning! Choose your Vice," he wrote in his first and only message to date. Sheen has been so ubiquitous on the talk show circuit in recent days that his former network boss lamented that he wished the actor could have worked as hard to promote himself for an Emmy award. The actor has plenty of time on his hands following the cancellation of his top-rated sitcom "Two and a Half Men." CBS and producer Warner Bros pulled the plug on the show for the rest of the season last week after Sheen launched several expletive-filled rants against the show's creator.



So a new medium to follow the thoughts of star Charlie Sheen and his new moves following his swift exit from his hit show.

Charlie Sheen has reacted to the abrupt cancelling of his hit show by telling his story to every TV show that wants to air his feelings on it. His latest appearance is on "Piers Morgan Tonight" where he was found to be more level headed about the situation than on previous interviews and expressed his feelings eloquently.

As Sheen described it, he was never fully comfortable on the show. "I never cost the production or the show or the studio or the network any money, as far as missing a show or missing a day that was a money day," he said. The bottom line, as far as Sheen is concerned, is that what he did in his personal life never impacted the show. "And [yet] every Friday night it turned into the big executive [meetings] in the corner. Hush-hush dialogue -- whisper dialogue -- about my condition. It was a really hard situation to work in."



So another high profile interview from the star of the "Two and a Half Men" show and one which will get his opinions of the situation across to more people.

christina aguilera arrested

christina aguilera arrested


Pop star Christina Aguilera has been reported to have been arrested with her boyfriend in West Hollywood. She had apparently been pulled up by authorities for being intoxicated and her boyfriend for driving whilst being under the influence at 2:45am early this morning. The vehicle they were riding in was driving erratically and so when the police saw this they were pulled over.

Officers determined Rutler was drunk and arrested him for misdemeanor DUI. Cops say the deputies determined Aguilera was also "extremely intoxicated" ... and since she was unable to care for herself, Aguilera was taken into custody. Aguilera was booked for public intoxication -- and according to the booking sheet, she was listed at 5'2" and 100 lbs. According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, Rutler's bail was set at $5,000.




So an embarrassing situation for the pop star and her boyfriend and heavy price paid for the indiscretion.

charlie sheen today show

charlie sheen today show

Charlie Sheen will be seen on the NBC morning show today discussing his recent trouble with CBS and the bosses of his hit show "Two and a Half Men" who cancelled the program following an on air tirade that Sheen unleashed on his boss. He talked with Jeff Rossen of NBC News and it is to be shown in the first hour of Monday's programme.

ABC previously had claimed the first Sheen interview since "Men"-gate went down last week; it will air excerpts from Sheen's talk with Andrea Canning on Monday's "Good Morning America" and a "20/20" special at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday. NBC has now jumped to the front of the line and can totally call "First!" We're assuming that CBS' "Early Show" is probably not in the running for a Sheen exclusive at this point.

So Sheen will be seen divulging more information on why he launched an attack on his show boss and more thoughts on the incident.

kirk douglas oscars

kirk douglas oscars

Last night veteran actor Kirk Douglas found himself upstaging the actual hosts of the oscars ceremony which were Anne Hathaway and James Franco with an entertaining display that showed up Hathaway and Franco who were the youngest hosts in Oscars history.

After quipping that he wished actresses were as beautiful in his heyday as Hathaway -- to this, she fanned herself and feigned feeling faint -- the "Spartacus" star grabbed the best supporting actress envelope and said, "Now, the most important part..." As the nominees waited awkwardly with bated breath, Douglas responded by stuffing the envelope in his mouth and proceeding to fight over his cane with a strapping young man who was on the stage to help him get around. "I always lose," he said as the taller man finally wrestled the cane away from him.

So an amusing display from the veteran actor who is 94 years old and was able to put a spark into the event with his antics.

chris brown blonde hair

chris brown blonde hair

Chris Brown has sought after a new blonde hairstyle as he is looking to find some more F.A.M.E in the run up to the release of his fourth album which is entitled F.A.M.E. which is set to be released on the 22nd of March. The picture which premiered his new hairstyle was released on Twitter early Sunday Morning.

"Look at me now," he tweeted, along with a photo of his new light-colored hair as he appeared to be deep in conversation during a recent dinner outing. The move comes days after new photos cropped up stemming from the singer's infamous altercation with Rihanna prior to the 2009 Grammys. At the time, a fuzzy image circulated of a black and blue Rihanna, but new photos released on Wednesday showed more detail of the "Only Girl (In the World)" singer's injuries, including cuts lining her mouth.



So possibly a cunning move by the singer who is going for a new image to help gain him more attention and help his material get more exposure.

jon cryer on charlie sheen

Charlie Sheen's co star on "Two and a Half Men", Jon Cryer has spoken out about his reaction to the show getting cancelled and he has said that he is "shocked" about what he heard and he is the first castmember to speak out following this week's sudden turn of events with the show.

Commenting via Twitter, Cryer wrote: “It’s too sad! Sorry guys, that you must hear so bad news! I’m also shocked!” Cryer, who plays Sheen’s brother on the long-running CBS hit, retweeted a follower who commented “Two and a Half Men is axed.”CBS pulled the plug on its top-rated comedy following Sheen’s string of hostile interviews earlier this week bashing Men executive producer Chuck Lorre. Famous comedian Denis Leary tweeted, "Is it just me or is Charlie Sheen starting to sound a lot like Moammar Kaddafi?"




So Jon Cryer, his main co star on the show has given his reaction along with other celebrities, who next will reveal more on the strange outburst from Sheen?

twitter down

twitter down

It seems to be that the Twitter server is down at the moment and users can't access the site. The status site has left a note saying “Currently experiencing elevated error rates — You may experience some problems loading twitter.com and with Twitter clients. We are aware of the problem and are taking action.”

Based on some searches on Google, it does appear that some people are able to post messages — it does look like if you use a third-party client (Seesmic, HooterSuite, TweetDeck) you might still be able to get in. This is the first time for an extended Twitter outage in quite a long time. In the old days of Twitter outages, we would all hop on the bus to Friendfeed but that is no longer an option since many have left that service. If you are a social media ninja, social media rockstar and are really upset or need someone to talk to because of this outage, please call 867-5309.

So it seems a lot of people who use the Twitter site will be disgruntled with the technical fault and will want to know why it occured.

charlie sheen rant

charlie sheen rant

Charlie Sheen has been caught on microphone sticking it to his boss and the penalty for the loose tongue has been harsh and immediate. The show in which he has kept his name famous in recent years, "Two and a Half Men" has been cancelled and he is out of a job.

CBS and Warner Bros. Television, which produces the hit sitcom, shut down the show for the rest of the season. The decision was based on a series of interviews in which Sheen excoriated “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre, first on Alex Jones’ conspiracy-minded radio show, and then to TMZ.com. “I’ve spent, I think, close to the last decade, I don’t know, effortlessly and magically converting [Lorre’s] tin cans into pure gold,” he told Jones. “And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write.” Angry that the show didn’t resume production when he felt ready, Sheen slammed Lorre as a “clown” and referred to him as “Chaim Levine,” a Hebrew variation on his birth name, Charles Levine.

So Sheen has had to pay a heavy price for airing his views as brutal as he did and he will no doubt be regretting it.
