The Beastie Boys lost founding member Adam “MCA” Yauch today, but his memory will live on through the band’s nine amazing albums. The Beasties are known for making boastful, but often brilliant raps, laden with smart and sardonic references. Last year, the folks oer at the A.V. Club went through and explained more than 170 Beasties references. We’ve picked out our ten favorite, after the jump. Keep reading »
“I don’t think Adele would deny that she was fat. And I bet she doesn’t. Karl Lagerfeld used to be fat himself, so you gotta think about that. He’s obviously not proud of that fact. I also think that people give him way too much power! He’s just an eccentric designer who makes amazing art but doesn’t always say the coolest shit. …
I doubt, and I hope, and I’m pretty confident, that [Adele] does not think about Karl Lagerfeld, ever. I bet that is the last thing on her mind at night. She’s falling asleep on her 85 Grammys and however many millions of albums she’s sold and however many millions of dollars that she has, and is just probably thinking, like, ‘You know what – all right!’”
– Leave it to Beth Ditto from The Gossip to be the voice of reason on Karl Lagerfeld, aka Uncle Karl, aka that old dude who designs for Chanel and seems to get away with saying all kinds of horrible things like calling Adele “a little too fat” and fashion groupies French-kiss his arse anyway. I co-sign everything she said. [London Evening Standard via Fashionista]
Say it isn’t so! Chris Harrison, “The Bachelor”‘s host and resident wise man, has split from his wife of 18 years, Gwen. As a diehard Bach fan, I’ve always felt affectionately about ol’ Harrison, and have been impressed with his stamina for this whole charade, especially since he clearly knew what it took to make a relationship work. Was I wrong? Remember when Rozlyn Papa, who was booted from Pilot Jake Pavelka’s season because she had some sort of romantic dalliance with a producer, accused Chris of flirting with that producer’s ex-wife? I thought it was total BS at the time … but what if being famous — for seriously delivering the line, “This is the final rose” — has gone to his head? All that being said, I am officially in favor of making Chris Harrison the next “Bachelor.” Why not? He’d be more fun to watch that Ben Flajnik. And he could still host! That’d be funny.

It seems “True Blood”’s Alexander Skarsgård is quite the busy man, dating not one, but THREE different women. Back in April, while promoting his new movie, “Battleship,” he was seen getting busy with his busy costar Rihanna.
The duo ended up at a Geisha Bathhouse and, says a witness, “They were drinking, and before you knew it they were in a corner getting hot and heavy.” Obviously, they are not seeing each other exclusively – at least not if Ashton Kutcher has anything to say about it.
Skarsgård has also recently been linked to Charlize Theron – but all this is while he is also dating Italian skydiver, Roberta Mancino. Read more…
