Transparency is like refined gold, it has to be earned, tested with trust. So, I like people who endeavor to display a transparent spirit as leaders who serve the best interests of all, hence this quote running on this blog: “In my time as Prime Minister I have tried to push for greater transparency, and we are happy to have an independent body overseeing expenses and entitlements for MPs [politicians], says New Zealand’s leader from Wellywood/ Wellington,”John Key 3 News. Information is like water flow. It often doesn’t flow to the right people who need to have it. Knowledge equals power. Africa needs water. What do we do this knowledge?
Transparency is good in any sincere culture but discretion is a part of wisdom too: ‘Do not let the left hand know what the right hand is doing… Be as wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove… A wise man conceals a matter.’
Often people who expect others to be transparent are not themselves–so good men and naturally transparent people–are forced to be wise and manage their own information about themselves, like a cultural taonga of New Zealand belonging to the collective people of Aotearoa New Zealand. Each nation is a knowledge farm of fruitful minds.
Here in America, today - Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has already worked out what her parents do and wants to follow in their footsteps already as a performer turning out a show. “Shi’Bouncy” couldn’t be happier with her baseball bat and military attire as mother Angelina Jolie, sister Zahara and Maddox go to Lee’s Art Store themselves in Manhattan, New York to shop before they imagine and create as artists. Too cute. This family is on the attack today from haters not in Jolie’s league, or, all of her children either. Love it. Maddox Jolie-Pitt has been a star longer than many people claiming to be celebs today. He was born this way. A star.
Jolie’s statement today could be–Our best art, is serving our children, to be informed by their worldview, creating their art. In any culture, isn’t that always the truth.

BRAD PITT, PAX AND MADDOX JOLIE-PITT HIT UP MEGAMIND AT THE FLIX
Movie night out for the Jolie-Pitt lads, was a dad and sons movie date, at Megamind.
Wherever Justin Bieber has been, that’s where celebrity kids all want to be. It must suck when you’re a parent and only what Biebs is doin’ is cool to your kid. The power of a popular teen is key.
Megamind is the flick that asks “can the unlikely hero become the hero of their own story in a super villain vs super hero turned super villain movie.” Sounds like George W’s book tour. The need is the call to return.
Entertainment, celebrity news as voted by you all in Hollywood today. Sweet!

Anakalani Jolie (Angelina Jolie‘s Hawaiian name, her mother made sure she knew as a child), Brad Pitt (Benjamin Button), and their sons Maddox and Pax Jolie-Pitt enjoyed a day at a friend’s beach party in Malibu today. Family fun. Cute.
And speaking of angel flowers, here’s Flower from LACMA’s exhibition today as well–part 3 of the Snow, Moon, Flower calligraphy artwork, in Chinese characters from Japan. The artwork symbolizes both “power” and “delicacy” co-existing side by side.

PARIS: WE ARE MOTHERS OF THE WORLD by ANGELINA JOLIE, NICOLE RICHIE with MADDOX JOLIE-PITT and SPARROW MADDEN
Mad love from Paris today from America’s second and third generation celebrity set of Hollywood families, as Maddox Jolie-Pitt turns up to visit his mom, Angelina Jolie on set of The Tourist, and Sparrow Madden sees the Eiffel Tower for the first time with his mother, Nicole Richie, goddaughter of the late Michael Jackson.
One has to give it to Nicole Richie, that she is astutely aware that the Hollywood star system revolves around the Jolie-Pitt household, who are the current auteurs of the Hollywood star template of this moment.
Richie mobilizes to be near the Jolie-Pitts with her son, (same city, Paris) to make her statement to the world alongwith Angelina’s example–that mothers and their children have a key leadership role in reminding us all, that We Are The World and we can make a marked difference.
Love it from America today via France. Mad (good) celebrity mother love x 2! All we need now if for Madonna and children to gatecrash this hot Jolie-esque, Maddonna and child Hollywood-Parisian party. You know it.
In case we don’t get Nicole’s message, that the Angelina Jolie approach to stardom is the preferred Hollywood model to emulate, here’s another pic of Richie flying a plane of medical supplies last week to those in need, a la Angelina Jolie’s Up In The Air mode of celebrity leadership.

In The Box Seat: Fresh from the Jolie-Pitts cheering and celebrating The Indianapolis Saints onto victory in a private box in Miami last night; Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have announced that they are suing The News of The World for false reporting about their relationship.
The BBC reports: ” a story published on 24 January, the paper said the couple would separate and had agreed the division of assets and custody of their children.
“The couple’s lawyer, Keith Schilling, called the “widely republished” allegations “false and intrusive”.
“He added the paper had failed to meet “reasonable demands” for an apology.
“He said the pair had also asked for a retraction of the allegations, which had subsequently been “widely republished by mainstream news outlets”.
“It is believed that this is the first time, Hollywood’s reigning couple have ever sued a tabloid. Star Magazine must be shaking in their boots right now, who runs fake covers on Brad and Angie every other week. Author Ian Halperin must be hiding too about now, with his false allegations book against the couple; or he could just be staring a gift horse in the mouth instead with this law suit. :) Angie is so kind.
Finally, St John‘s fashion label must be kicking themselves that they didn’t resign Jolie to their label, now that the Saints have won the Super Bowl. An interesting news, sports, legal day today in the US media. Game on!

Dad and son times in America don’t get much more fun than Super Bowl 2010 as Brad Pitt rocks his beanie-wearing/ viking beard mug to the Super Bowl in Miami with son Maddox Jolie-Pitt today.
*nb: these pics are a product placement Super Bowl commercial paid for by a phone company* yep – you know it! Maddox Jolie-Pitt earns his crust too. This commercial is his morning paper run job. :)
Nice ‘producing’ from Poppa Pitt… and go Maddox Jolie-Pitt! He’s the #1 American kid at Super Bowl this year for advertisers (the Beckham’s had the title last year).

Angelina Jolie-Pitt begins her Wanted sequel PR campaign. Jolie was spotted in Brignoles France, with son Maddox Jolie Pitt shopping for a toy hand gun.
The Brignole locals were said to be a wee bit star struck.
“One joy scatters a hundred griefs” is an ancient Chinese proverb. It’s a nice thought today as we bring you 10 hot news posts in Hollywood on Horiwood.Com. Smile, share your joy with others.
Horiwood.Com brings you amusing entertainment news 7 days a week from Hollywood.
This video footage of Angelina Jolie’s mom, French actress, Marcheline Bertrand in 1980 shows a healthy, vibrant and beautiful woman like her famous daughter Angelina Jolie, currently is now. The world was at Bertrand’s feet.
Bertrand sadly died young after a 7 year battle with cancer, in 2007.
With the death too of Farrah Fawcett, we all need to be aware that cancer claims lives, irrespective of class, race or creed. We all need to be mindful that the disease whose only prevention begins at early detection, at this current point in medical science, needs a lot of research.
Bertrand was a selfless soul, who quit acting to raise her two children to Jon Voight. Her life’s message is, that there is no greater role a human being can play, than parenting their children with love. What a powerful legacy Marcheline Bertrand left in the world.
When her granddaughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was born, she said:
“My heart is overflowing with joy with the new arrival of Brad and Angelina’s third child. Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh are deeply loved children. They have very kind and caring parents who love and support each other in every way.”
What great words to leave behind for her family. She’s a bright star, that is still shining. Thanks MB!
At the Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, LA premiere, Kim Kardashian said that she was only there because Megan Fox was in the film. “I have a big girl crush on Megan Fox” Kardashian told E! Entertainment. “I think Megan Fox is hot… and I don’t even have girl crushes, ever!” Nice encouragement from KK towards megan Fox’s rising star in Tinsel Town. Love it! Kardashian knows how to work a red carpet for her own press. Tres smart!
Here in Hollywood, here’s 10 Entertainment & Celebrity News Posts right now, on Horiwood.Com. Enjoy!
Life & Style Magazine, because the Gosselins and their TV shwo are on hiatus, have felt the need to come up with some punk story about Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, the famous twins of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
They say that Angie is hiding the twins from the public eye because the twins are fragile and cannot hold down their food. That’s just stupid. When their arrival and revelation in the world was a $20 million magazine cover, that was donated to refugee’s charity, these two babies don’t appear in public for free!
I remember writing a story for TU MAI magazine, when both babies were born. The story was published in New Zealand. Here it is, the story is called, WHAT’S IN A NAME. Some words are in hori-eze (or the indigenous Maori language of New Zealand, go here, to translate any words). Enjoy!
When you’re busy, you don’t want to do interviews all the time. You just want to live your life and let other people talk about you. This is the case, for the world’s #1 woman, Angelina who graces the cover of July’s Harper’s Bazaar Magazine.
Angelina who turned 34 last Thursday allowed herself to be critiqued by feminist author Naomi Wolf instead. Wolf’s essay studies the fact that “women both identify with her and desire her.”
Highlights of Naomi Wolf’s interview are:
It’s “more than simply a physical response,” Wolf says. Jolie “brings together almost every aspect of female empowerment and liberation.”
Jolie has proved (more…)
Ashlee Simpson is often seen with her son Bronx, while daddy Pete Wentz is nowhere to be seen. The working mom, whose landed a gig on Melrose Place has her hands full these days. Pete, be a little bit more like Brad Pitt and do your share of kid raising bud! Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz needs to read this: BRAD PITT & SONS – FROM NYC’S DUNKIN DONUTS TO NIAGRA FALLS! Bronx is so cute, and looks so sad! Let’s change that picture from Mogli to Mo-glee!!
[source 1, INFDaily.com]Brad Pitt’s been loving playing super dad lately while Angelina films her movie Salt. Here’s Bradley Pitt with his favorite Dunkin’ Donuts coffee in hand, while he takes sons Maddox, 7, and Pax, 5, out for the day Saturday in Long Island, N.Y where the family have taken up temporary residence while Angelina is hard at work.
Below Brad and his parents show his kids Niagra Falls in Canada, one of the wonders of the world. Nice parenting Mr Pitt! Nice to see the grandparents out and about with you, making a family outing of it all. Canada is quite the place to be right now people! It’s a hot spot!
Madonna took her kids Lourdes, Rocco and David Banda to Malawi to present herself as a single mother, wanting to adopt. She’s always casting herself as a victim, who becomes a super hero. lol! Madonna, we all know that ‘mother’ is not your #1 priority… but you sure do give us a giggle!
Girl forgot to take a bread knife with her to feed the family though. I love the Princess Leah twin buns on her head from Star Wars. I wonder which star, she feels like she’s sparring with, her hubby Guy Richie? Yeah, probably!
Notice how Rocco’s hair is cut Mohawk styles, like Angelina Jolie‘s and Brad Pitt‘s son’s Maddox Jolie-Pitt trade mark hair cut. Is Madonna doing an Octo-Mom and aping Angelina too? Shocker! Who would have known?!
Madonna is also in Malawi to build a school.
