If you are reading the Internet right now, which you are, you’ve probably heard a bit of hullabaloo surrounding a rap character named Riff Raff. Up until a couple of days ago, I thought Riff Raff was cartoon cat Heathcliff’s pesky nemesis. And I was right! But also wrong, because the Riff Raff people are freaking out about is actually a guy named Jody Christian. Annnnd you might have seen him before, if you are an incurable fan of reality TV.
That’s because Jody Christian was a contestant on “From Gs to Gents,” that weird MTV show where P. Diddy’s butler dude Farnsworth Bentley tried to turn the lives of some hardcore ne’erdowells around. Good luck with that. Keep reading »
Ugh, my Fantasy Dream Boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt is looking like a total tool these days. That’s because, I guess, he’s filming a new movie called “Don Jon’s Addiction.” In it, he plays a dude addicted to porn who falls in love with Scarlett Johannson so it makes sense that he’s overly tanned and bulked up, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino-style. As such, we’re probably going to skip it and watch “Brick” again.
The Cannes Film Festival is where celebs are supposed to bring their A game. Not their A- game, but their A+ game. That’s because they’re not simply on the red carpet at some crappy Hollywood premiere — they’re on the world’s snotty stage! In France! France! And they’re competing against French and Italian starlets in the glamour game, too. As such, these girls have some really intense gown-age in tow — with everything from lacy cut outs, to feathers, to bright colors at their disposal. We survey the successes — and some of the Cannes chaff, after the jump.
Marcella Marino really loved Lady Gaga’s bow hairstyle, so her sweet dad took her to a hair salon and had her hair done up. But officials at Marcella’s school said the bow-tie look violated school policy. According to a note sent to parents, girls were not permitted to wear “braids or beads” in their hair, and requested that girls ribbons or bows be “made of dark colors, maroon/navy blue/black.”
So … maybe Marcella’s bow would have worked had she had dark hair? Marcella, keep in mind, is four. I’m not entirely sure why it’s necessary to instill such a strict beauty code on such young girls. It’s not like she chose to follow some of Gaga’s other fashion trends, like say, her meat dress, or radical platform heels, after all. It’s a hair bow, people. Keep reading »
These two! They’re at Cannes (of course) at the premiere of “The Paperboy,” starring Kidman, McConaughey and a delicate little flower known as Zac Efron. I like to imagine they’re having an “attractive-off” and Kidman is chiding McConaughey for wearing a shirt. Or maybe she’s asking him why he left his bongos at home. What do you think?
Mason jars are the perfect all-purpose summer mug. Great for everything from your morning iced coffee to your evening mixed drink, they look cool while keeping your libations cool, too. And that’s why I’m totally crazy about this “Drinking Situation” mug from In God We Trust, which takes the typical mason jar up a few notches. Complete with a travelin’ safe screw-top and a sipping straw, the Drinking Situation mug will quickly replace virtually every glass you own, not to mention all those pesky to-go cups you’re always picking up that are bad for the environment and don’t look that cute, either.
