Lauren Kelly

**Brad Pitt gave his first interview since his breakup with Angeline Jolie to “GQ Style”, and he’s pretty much saying their split was his fault.

He described it as, “self-inflicted” and said, quote, “I was boozing too much.  It’s just become a problem.  And, I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again. Truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good [I] don’t want to live that way anymore.”

He didn’t say much about Angelina specifically, but he did talk a lot about the importance of family, and his concerns for his kids. “It’s hit me smack in the face with our divorce:  I gotta be more.  I gotta be more for them.  I have to show them.  And I haven’t been great at it.”

**Justin Bieber is performing in Mumbai for the first time next week, and he’s got a super crazy tour rider.

He requests culinary experts to supervise the gourmet food being served to him, which includes five dishes per day that are to be, quote, “renamed after his popular songs.”

Justin wants his room “adorned” with purple carnations, because purple is his favorite color.  And he wants a, quote, “special Indian Yoga Casket containing aromatic essential oils,” along with specific smelling incense sticks.

He also wants a Jacuzzi for his own personal use before he performs, and he needs his dressing room to have a “large, glass-door refrigerator,” packed with water and cream sodas.  Plus one large pack of Swedish Fish.
