5 Celebs with Law Degrees

It’s a cliché that if you don’t know what you want to do with your life, you go to law school. This is a very expensive and stressful avenue for “killing time” and hoping a passion pops up. It’s also why many law school students don’t end up using their degree and instead spend years pursuing a field that’s not a right fit. It’s not easy to be a great lawyer, and clients deserve better than someone who scraped by without having their heart in it.

The good news is that sometimes these law degree holders do go on to find their right match: Being a celebrity. Whether it’s acting, music or being a personality, there are quite a few celebrities with law degrees. Here are some of the most famous attorneys in waiting:

John Grisham

This is one celebrity whose law degree has served him well. Author Grisham tried a slew of different jobs from selling underwear to being a plumber’s apprentice before he became one of the most famous living writers of today. However, he had early pursuits of becoming a tax lawyer, but found it too challenging so switch to trial law which has helped form the basis of his legal thrillers.

Gerard Butler

The beloved actor actually worked as a lawyer in Edinburgh for a couple of years, but was fired at the end of his trainee period. However, Butler has readily agreed that knowing a thing or two about law has helped him deal with his own legal scuffles.

John Cleese

This comedian received his law degree from Cambridge, but he never practiced. Instead, he teamed up with Graham Chapman, his writing partner, and fell in love with comedy. The Monty Python troupe was born, and Cleese never looked back. However, many wonder what his kind of courtroom presence would be like.

Gandhi

World leader Gandhi studied at University College of London, passing the bar in 1981, and then went back to Mumbai to practice. He only discovered later that law wasn’t a good match for him, since he was too reserved to make a solid presence in court. Of course, he went on to find a platform that suited him much better.

Henri Matisse

This famed artist had a father with dreams of an attorney son, and that’s solely what made the French artist go to Paris to study in 1887. Returning to Saint-Quentin, he took a job as a law clerk, but soon after developed appendicitis. While healing, his mother gave him oil paints and that’s how he discovered his talent. He famously said, “From the moment I held that box of colors in my hand, I knew this would be my life.”

Law isn’t for everyone, but fortunately many people find out before it’s too late.

Gerard Butler And John Mayer…

Ricky Martin Returns With World Music-Flavored Single “Adios” On September 23

Ricky Martin will release a new single called “Adios” on September 23. The tantalizing track was penned by Jesse Shatkin (he co-wrote Sia‘s “Chandelier”), Latin rapper Yotuel Romero and Japanese/Spanish flamenco virtuoso Antonio Rayo. That multi-cultural line-up is apparently reflected in the song’s world music-flavored sound.

“Adios” is the first single from Ricky’s 10th studio album, which is set for an early 2015 release. (I guess that means “Come With Me” and “Adrenalina” didn’t make the cut). “We chose [the song] because it represents who I am today,” the heartthrob explains. “The title is a reference to the opening of another cycle.” The 42-year-old’s last LP Musica + Alma + Sexo was released in 2011.

Are you excited for new music from Ricky? Let us know in the comments below.

Aretha Franklin Covers Adele, Whitney Houston & Alicia Keys On New Divas-Themed Concept Album

Aretha Franklin is releasing her 39th studio LP on September 30. Wait… what? The news comes as a surprise because the queen of soul is kind of ‘doing a Beyonce‘ — the album isn’t a total secret but details are heavily guarded. Clive Davis, who is overseeing production for Arista Records, did, however, shed some light on the tantalizing project for Billboard.

For starters, it’s a concept album. Aretha will cover classic songs by fellow divas including Adele, Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand, Alicia Keys, Etta James and Diana Ross. “[The diva's] new album is purely and simply sensational,” Clive says of the unexpected opus. “She’s on fire and vocally in absolutely peak form. What a thrill to see this peerless artist still showing the way, still sending shivers up your spine, still demonstrating that all contemporary music needs right now is the voice.” My iPod is ready.

Do you love the concept? Let us know in the comments below.

Tinashe’s Breakthrough Hit “2 On” Gets A Belated But Enjoyable House Remix: Listen

Tinashe has done everything right since breaking through with irresistible stoner jam “2 On”. Her follow-up (the A$AP Rocky-assisted “Pretend”) is as close to new Janet Jackson music as we’ll get until she launches that long-overdue comeback, while Aquarius buzz track “Feels Like Vegas” is the sexiest bedroom anthem to surface since Beyonce‘s “Dance For You”.

The only thing missing from the rising diva’s oeuvre is a killer uptempo club anthem. I’m sure that will be addressed on her debut LP, but until that drops, check out Sneaker Snobs‘ winning house overhaul of “2 On”. The Chicago DJ ups the BPM and gets a little experimental with autotune (Schoolboy Q sounds like a chipmunk) on the much-appreciated remix. Listen after the jump.

Do you like uptempo Tinashe or do you prefer her slow jams? Let us know in the comments below.

Hilary Duff Opens Up About Recording Ed Sheeran Duet “Tattoo”: “I Was Really Intimidated”

Ed Sheeran has already talked about writing a song for Hilary Duff’s comeback album (he described it as “good” in case you’re wondering) but the former teen queen has been pretty tight-lipped about the whole experience. Well, she finally spilled the tea — revealing the duet’s title (“Tattoo”) and some details about the x singer/songwriter’s creative process.

“He vocally produced it and came in the booth with me,” Hilary told MTV about the much-anticipated collab. “I was really intimidated because, normally, they don’t do that, so I kept looking up and being like, ‘You’re Ed Sheeran and I’m singing the song that you wrote and I want to do right by it’. Happily, it all turned out well.” It was awesome and then he, in like 15 minutes, did all the low stuff and the harmonies and the background.” Can’t wait to hear it.

The Veronicas Get It Just Right With Their Epic “You Ruin Me” Video: Watch The Twisted Ballet Drama

4f03f0b7cd5927dd4d0d980ef5bf9193 The Veronicas Get It Just Right With Their Epic “You Ruin Me” Video: Watch The Twisted Ballet Drama
Black Swans

After years of label limbo, The Veronicas kicked off their long-awaited comeback with tortured ballad “You Ruin Me” last week. The semi-orchestral, hate-drenched break-up anthem is a massive departure from the catchy pop/rock of global hits “Untouched” and “4Ever” but it’s a great reminder of both their songwriting and vocal prowess.

The video arrived today (September 18) and it’s something of a blockbuster. Filmed at Sydney’s State Theatre, Jess and Lisa perform the song on stage while a twisted back story about a jealous ballerinas and a particularly creepy instructor unfolds. It’s weird, twisted and strangely beautiful. Kind of like the song. Get acquainted with The Veronicas 2.0 up top.

Jessie J And Ariana Grande Ditch Nicki Minaj For A Rapless Version Of “Bang Bang”: Listen

This is kind of shady. Jessie J and Ariana Grande have released a rap-free version of (late-)summer smash “Bang Bang”. That, dear friends, means that Nicki Minaj‘s cute verse is no longer with us. It’s not that uncommon for a featured artist to be removed for a remix but the whole appeal of the song is that it brought together three very different divas.

What we’re left with is a migraine-inducing scream-off between the British comeback queen and mini Mariah. Jessie’s powerful pipes win that battle (easily) but Nicki’s absence is palpable. Hopefully, this isn’t an official release and never finds its way to iTunes or the Barbz will revolt. On the bright side, this version gives you a whole new appreciation for the original. Listen after the jump.

Which version do you prefer? Let us know in the comments below.
