    Well I think it is pretty obvious the fact that most of all has won Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for the pictures of their adopted, and their own biological children, which brings me to a logical conclusion that they adopt children in order to earn more money by means of that, and I find this conclusion of mine shocking, as earning money on behalf of their own children, is a sin that no person in the world should ever do. I feel very disappointed for their family, but from the other side, maybe it is for the better, because even if being used by their tutors, those children for sure would have a better life than the one they were leading in their own country, maybe someday they would be even thankful for those pictures.

    I enjoyed seeing the twins of Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthony they truly look nice, the only thing I do not really understand is why Mark Anthony is absent on the pictures, as I know for sure that this photo shooting they made while being a happy couple, and only a few months later their world collapsed and they made a decision to split with each other, which I consider as a totally insane one, because they really are meant for each other, and the fact that they have two wonderful children together is clearly showing that even more to everyone in the world. So I am wondering why they are the only people in the world who are not able to see this obvious thing?!

    Hmm, I am wondering who was that surprised and could not wait to see the pictures of the Jamie Lynn’s child? After all what is so amazing in the fact that a minor girl gets pregnant in her family’s house while her parents are at home and allowed her to sleep with the boy from high school?! When I read something like this I get so irritated that I cannot stop myself from the desire to punch this kind of parents right in their face for the fact that they are not able to teach their children some important values in life, instead of them they are doing everything they can in order to ruing their kids life while they are being young and so perceptive to the world!
