Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz Announce Wedding Plans

Swizz Beatz in a very open interview to OK Magazine recently dispelled rumors that the couple is getting married this weekend, but says that it’s coming and coming pretty fast. As for wedding planning, Swizz makes sure that he’s not going to just “show up”, but that he’s going to have a big hand in planning the festivities.

“Yeah, you know, I’m a planner! I like getting into the detail of things. I’m inspired by fashion, I’m inspired by art, I’m inspired by architectural things so [I like] being involved with the wedding. I’m not the person who sits back and goes, okay, well I’ll just show up. I’m actually spearheading certain plans but it’s a nice blend, a nice partnership.”

While this may have some women swooning over how he’s such a “perfect” guy, let’s not lose sight of his wife and kids that he kicked to the curb to be with Alicia. No one is perfect, but let’s not get caught up in romance. I’m happy for them, but it seems a little too quick to be a fairy tale story. We all love happy endings, but one very positive thing is that he’s keeping the kids at bay and doing his best to keep the environment positive around the kids from both women at all times. Congratulations, but slow the train for your own mental health.

Jennifer Aniston’s Bad Rap

jennifer-anistonLet me start off by saying that I love Jennifer Aniston.  She is truly one of the most beautiful women on the planet.  But talk about a woman that has gotten the wrong end of the stick.  If she’s crazy, she hides it very well and with the amount of time this woman is on camera, she would have to do a lot of hiding.  I think what we’re seeing is that her choice in men is based on, heck, I don’t what it’s based on.

I’m sure that I am not alone when I say that I firmly believe without any doubt that Brad Pitt was her soul mate.  Even though Brad and Angelina Jolie had a nice wedding and have been together for years now with enough kids to start a small country, Brad still looks empty and incomplete.  Photos of him just look like he’s struggling to hold on to his sanity and now he’s trapped with a crazy woman.  Every new child they create or purchase has got to make that cash register “ka-ching” sound in his head. A crazy woman holding the threat of alimony and child support payments multiplied by however many kids they have now.   His departure from that relationship would be the end of his career and his wallet.

brad-pitt-save-meSo as for Brad, Jennifer should probably come to the realization that there’s no going back to that playground again, no matter how traumatic it was for her.   He was an idiot and he’s gone.  Jennifer, there’s nothing wrong with you.  You are beautiful and men around the world love you.  Time to move on.  But….

John Mayer, really?  As someone who has actually met John a few times in Georgia at small venues in and about town at shows, it doesn’t fit.  Great musician, but not husband material.  Not yet anyway. He seems to have good intentions, but at the same time he croons about being lonely, he’s doing everything to stay single with no intention of being taken seriously.  Granted you guys look good together and both of you appear to have your guards down when around each other, so that’s good.  But something is missing.

Vince Vaughn?  That could have worked because it’s the same age bracket and you both have the same sense of humor.  But now he’s moved on to some Canadian real estate agent to settle down.  The same thing you wanted from him, but at the time he couldn’t give you.  Guess that was just bad timing.  Which brings us to the current rumor mill.

jennifer-aniston-gerard-butlerJennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler.   I think this may actually work.  The couple is keeping the rumors on the down low, but that may really work.  About the same age bracket, tempers seem about the same, both good looking, and successful.  Yeah, I think that may work.  But here’s the deal.  I’m going to call it and if it DOES work, I want to be invited to the wedding as “that blogger that called it”.   Plus I want to give Jennifer a big celebratory hug.

That’s what the big problem is for me. Jennifer is a smart and beautiful woman who is just getting mixed up with the wrong guys.  I think it’s mostly because of her choosing actors and industry guys.  Maybe Vince has it right to make plans on getting married with a woman that has nothing to do with Hollywood.  It helps you get grounded and have one foot in reality.

The Bradley Cooper thing could have worked also (if it were true). The only thing that’s apparently getting in the way is Jennifer’s force field.  Her guard is up and she has no desire to get hurt again.  The tabloids push her as the jilted lover over and over and with someone different every quarter.   And it’s all unfortunately true for the most part.  You can see it in her eyes.  The look that says, “I kind of like this guy.  He’s nice to me, but I know he’s going to do something stupid and I’m going to get screwed again in front of millions of people.”  Can you blame her?

jennifer_anistonAgain, I’ve always loved Jennifer and she has always been my dream woman and the total package.  It kills me to see her getting involved with these guys that apparently have severe mental issues. Why would any man walk away from Jennifer Aniston?  For those of you that say, “Maybe it’s her.”, you can all die a slow death.  It’s not her.  No I’ve never met her, but it’s not her.  It just can’t be.

As one of many men who support you Jen, we always wish you the best and hope that you really find that right guy that appreciates you.  He’s out there somewhere.  Well, there’s me, but I’m already married with kids.   I would definitely be perfect for you.  My wife would be really ticked though.  I just want to come to the wedding and give you support.   So I’ll be looking for my invitation to watch you be happy.  And also to give myself closure. ; )
