Waka Flocka Flame: Do y’all actually do any of the stuff y’all talk about in your lyrics?
Tyler the Creator: Well, I don’t rape chicks … I have punched a girl in the eye … Um … What else? I say a lot of s**t and it just depends . . . Sometimes it’s just ’cause s**t is funny.
That’s hip-hop darling Tyler the Creator on how hilarious it is to hit girls. Other gems from his interview with rapper Waka Flocka Flame in this month’s Interview magazine? Tyler explains that the band name Odd Future came from a time that dragons tried to kill him: “Well, we were at a skate park on just a regular skate day, and this dragon just came out of nowhere and tried to attack me, so we killed the dragon. That’s how we got the name.” Sure! More delicious excerpts after the jump: Keep reading »
Who beat Justin Timberlake up? Tell us! Was it you? Was it over a girl? We bet it was over a girl? Oh wait, what? He wasn’t really beat up? This is just a photo from photographer Steven Klein’s Iguatemi Photo Series, which will be shown in Sao Paolo, Brazil, this month? Phew. It wasn’t looking very pretty there for a minute.

When it comes to accessories, I generally live by the more-is-more philosophy — except when it comes to one particular area. I’ve never had my ears pierced, and frankly, I don’t think I ever want to. Weird, right? You’re probably wondering, how do you go 32 years forward into womanhood, become a style editor and not have a close personal encounter with the piercer’s needle? Like many, I was asked by my mom as a little girl if I wanted to get pierced at the local K-Mart, and at eight or nine — whatever age I was at the time — it just didn’t seem like a good idea. Even then, I was too neurotic to believe that having a stranger poke holes in my ears would be a very smart. No thank you, I will do without.

“Only in this country they call it a faux pas. In England they’re like, look how thrifty she’s being, showing the British public that the royals are in a recession as well. I’m sorry, if I had that job I would only wear it once. If I’m going to be the future bloody queen of England I’m gonna wear that dress once, and that’s it, because I’m giving up the rest of my life, all of my privacy — at least I could wear a new dress every day.”
–”Fashion Police” panelist Kelly Osbourne speaking on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” about Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge‘s habit of wearing the same dress twice. What do you think? [NYMag] Keep reading »
Oh hey, it’s Nerd Boy Crush Paul Rudd, on the cover of the newly revamped mimbo magazine Nylon Guys. We guess he’s promoting his new movie “My Idiot Brother,” but who really cares? He’s in top Paul Rudd glasses-and-ruffled-hair form, and that’s all that really matters. Keep reading »

Recognize some of these faces? That’s because they’re past — and current! — contestants from “America’s Next Top Model.” Fierce competitors who strutted their stuff, but didn’t win, and who are back to try once more for the title. But real talk, Tyra, I know you’re the top model that created “Top Model” and all, but why in the hell does this shoot for the new season of “ANTM” look so low budget and hoochie? We’re in the 1000th season already–would it kill you to give this shoot a consistent look and feel, instead of, “whatever props we happen to have lying around the warehouse office that day”? Hmm. We’ll let it slide, because this season promises to be full of mega-good photos and mega-nasty cat fights. Check out the contestants after the jump!
