I, predictably, love Johnny Depp. But I am not really feeling his casual way with words in the November issue of Vanity Fair. Apparently, in an interview with Nick Tosches, Johnny seeks to show the extent to which he dislikes photo shoots. “Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird, man,” he says. “Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like—you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.” [NY Post]
Johnny apparently didn’t get the message that comparing things that aren’t sexual assault to sexual assault is hugely insensitive and just wrong. How we wished he’d learned from these celebs who did it before him.
You might think a world-famous filmmaker and author would be above petty crime. But you would be wrong! Miranda July, the twee mind behind the film “You And Me And Everyone We Know,” has confessed in this week’s issue of The New Yorker to a sordid history of shoplifting. Her first time stealing was during her freshman year of college when she nabbed a package of Neosporin. The minute a guard apprehended her, she wet her pants. And if you think that an incident of public peeing might have put the woman off from shoplifting, you would be wrong again! July continued to shoplift at the grocery store and even at Goodwill. (Yes, this woman stole from charity. Oof.) If you ever go to one of Miranda July’s book signings, watch your purse. [New Yorker]
Alas, Miranda July isn’t the only celeb with sticky fingers. Here are 10 more female celebs who have (allegedly) given themselves a five finger discount.
Even though I am not a tremendous fan of cooler temperatures, one of my favorite quotes ever is from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers,” Anne-with-an-E says. And so am I. Click on to see what we’re wearing today.
We can all agree that model poses are totally ridiculous. And as if you needed another example of just how stupid they are–here photographer Rion Sabean has taken a series of shots of guys in traditional dude get ups posed in traditional female model poses. Way to subvert the dominant gender paradigm, guys! Check out more in this slideshow… [Rion Sabean]
Fall fashion shows — highlighting Spring 2012 collections — continue on throughout Europe. And as they slowly wind down, we’ve noticed a bunch of designers who are truly pushing the boundaries of what Ready-to-Wear means. European designers like Ann Demeulemeester and Gareth Pugh aren’t staying safely within the confines of traditional sportswear, but instead are pushing their own unique perspective. Take a look at our gallery and check out some of the best more out-there looks.
We’re relieved that beer-flavored vagi-wipes don’t actually exist. Beergina is not something we aspire to. However, there are other real sexy products on the market that leave us, uh, guffawing. Click through to see some of the most ridiculous sex aids money can buy.
Warning: if Rihanna ever calls you the “c-word,” she means no offense! According to RiRi, people in Barbados are a lot more casual about using see-you-next-Tuesday than people elsewhere in the world. “‘Yeah, it’s funny. That word is so offensive to everyone in the world except for Bajans,” she told British Vogue. “You know African-Americans use the n-word to their brothers? Well, that’s the way we use the c-word. When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, ‘Hey, c**t,’ until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never know.” [Metro UK]
Good to know. But Rihanna isn’t the only celeb with a dirty mouth. Here’s nine other celebs just cruising to get their mouths washed out with soap.
The hype surrounding Kanye West’s debut women’s fashion line, DW, was on overdrive this past weekend, as the rapper-turned-designer presented his first collection during Paris Fashion Week. Of course it was a star-studded affair, and fashion heavy-hitters like Anna Wintour, Robin Givhan, and Carine Roitfeld were in attendance. Kanye consulted on the collection with other fashion insiders, including Central Saint Martins professor and British fashion guru Louise Wilson, who taught Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon, and many other famous designers.
Although Kanye put in a lot of work and preparation on DW, it still falls flat … or should I say heavy … to me. Some fashion editors and critics were polite enough to say that he made a valiant first attempt and the line is a work in progress. But others weren’t too shy or awestruck by Mr. West as to basically call DW a knock-off. Keep reading »
The bad news: my beloved brown Tara Jarmon riding boots, which I bought in Paris four years ago and wore into the ground, have been retired. The good news: this means I get to hunt for new boots to replace them! Click onward to see the brown boots in varying heights, heel heights, and styles that I found, some as low as $30 friggin’ bucks. I ain’t lying.
Celebrity sex tapes are so common, we barely even bat an eyelash at our favorite stars getting down on film. Once you’ve seen Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart, and Kari Anne Peniche sitting in a jacuzzi together, you’ve seen them all. But things are a little different if a celebrity has passed on. Are you sitting down? A 1991 video of Tupac receiving oral at a house party full of groupies is about to hit the market. Allegedly he is also rapping along to his own music, dancing, drinking a cocktail, smoking a blunt, and holding down a convo with the dude from Digital Underground all while getting blown. Please, try not to get too excited. [TMZ]
