“The fireman routine was in the script, the silhouette dance was in the script, but the one thing I said going into it was, “Guys, please, I’m up for these two classical sword-and-sandal pictures and I’m meeting with directors on them. Please don’t put me in a gladiator outfit, I don’t want to scare them off.” And sure enough, I get to my costume fitting and they’re like, “Oh my God, we’ve got this great gladiator suit!” And I’m like, “Guys, I am not doing the gladiator.” And so the compromise was that we had this great piece of classical music and I thought, Man, what if I was made out of stone and then I broke out of the stone and formed all the famous statues, like The Thinker, and you could paint me marble? It’d be awesome: The statue come to life. And then production came back to me and they were like, “No, you know what? We found these giant ten-foot-high gold statues, so let’s paint you gold.” And I’m like, “That makes no sense at all, but fine.” So the day of shooting, there was a team of five women and it took over an hour and they just covered me, every crevice, in gold. And the costumers gave me this gold lamé thong with a fig leaf on the front, and I just went for it.”

Her 12 Best Looks: Fan BingBing

Fan BingBing is a major star in her native China, where she’s managed to eek out a dual career as both a film star and a pop singer. That means you can find her on multiple red carpets in a month, wearing multiple gorgeous and effervescent gowns.

This month, BingBing’s been granted a profile in Vanity Fair — a sign that her fame is in no way on the wane. In it, she admits to never leaving the house sans fards and having a particular penchant for red lipstick. Us too, lady, us too.

When she was a child, she fell in love with clothes — her mother owned a boutique. And it’s evident in the sartorial choices she makes these days. Check them out after the jump.

You guys know I generally find Katy Perry to dress like the Poor Man’s Gaga — so wacky! So out of control! So over the top! Oh look, there’s whipped cream shooting out of her tits! Oh geez, her entire look is inspired by an ice cream cone she dropped on the pavement when she was in fifth grade!

But this look — a modest (for Katy Perry) dress she wore on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”  — I actually like. Sure, she’s still got an insurmountable situation going on with her hair, but the dress is tops.

And speaking of unlikely things, I actually kind of want to watch her new documentary/concert movie, if only to see the dismantling of her relationship with Russell Brand. I mean, they did make me sit through their awful wedding montage during the Grammys, after all.

Earlier this week, a federal health advisory panel recommended that obese adults receive intensive counseling in order to address the mounting obesity epidemic in America. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force encouraged doctors to identify and aid obese patients by providing counseling, or referring them to a weight loss-oriented program.

Specially targeted: patients with a body mass index of 30 or more — which is currently one in three Americans. Keep reading »

The Worst Bride?

Ladies, maybe we’re all doing something wrong. I say that because after watching this video of this obviously batcrackers woman walking down the aisle while singing Christina Aguilera’s “The Right Man,” I wonder if we are simply not acting crazy enough. I mean, this woman got married, y’all. She found a man who loves her. And she found an entire room full of people who were willing to sit through her serenading her fiance during her wedding and manage to not laugh at her. That’s pretty amazing. So, hmm, maybe she’s out of her mind, but she’s clearly doing something right.
