I thought I could count on Emma Roberts to keep things sleek, chic, and under control, but not so. Coachella would be the perfect opportunity to let your freak flag fly, and Emma seems to have taken up that offer. Girlfriend is looking less than her usual classy self in a bizarre boob tube she might have put through a paper shredder before changing her mind, not to mention those unbuttoned cut-offs. Seriously, I want to know what she was thinking. I can’t help but approximate, in the spirit of Coachella, that drugs may have been involved in the creation of this outfit. Thanks, drugs!
If you haven’t already read the 2005 memoir The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, pick it up or download it ASAP. It is seriously one of the most riveting books I’ve read. In case you don’t trust my taste, it spent over 250 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, so there’s that. But great books don’t always transition seamlessly into great films. Does anyone remember the film version of “Running With Scissors”? No, because it was awful. Which is weird because the book was really compelling. Hearing that Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in the film version of “The Glass Castle” gives us hope for its greatness. Um, yes, please. She would be perfect to play Jeannette Walls. We’ll be staying tuned for casting announcements. [Just Jared]
Carlton Banks was secretly my favorite character on “The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.” Even then I knew he was a dork after my own heart. These days Alfonso Ribeiro is keeping busy hosting dance party flash mobs to the Tom Jones song “It’s Not Unusual,” like this one filmed on the Universal Studios City Walk in Hollywood. Apparently he was trying to break a world record for most people dancing to the same song at the same time around the globe. (It brings pain to my heart that I cannot embed the video on The Frisky, but you can watch it here.) Glad to see you’re still awesome, Carlton Banks.
What have you been up to lately, Will Smith? Another stupid “Men In Black” movie? Feh. [The Sun UK]
I feel sort of sorry for Jack Gleeson. The 19-year-old Irish actor has been tasked with playing “Game of Thrones” villain Joffrey Baratheon, easily the most loathsome character on TV, well, ever. There is absolutely nothing to like about King Joffrey and he’s not even the kind of gleefully evil type you could maybe sort of root for. He’s a sadistic, vile little punk and I cannot wait to find out how he dies, because you know he must perish eventually. (He has to, right? I mean, evil like that cannot be allowed to live!) John DeVore and I have a new saying and that is, “He’s so Joff” which translates to “What a fucking dick.” Anyway, I am usually able to separate an actor from his character, but while I think I could control my desire to pummel Gleeson in the face on behalf of the Starks and those two prostitutes (for starters), I don’t think I could hold back my stink-eye. Really, this is a testament to just how good an actor Gleeson is and I hope he’s rewarded come award season. So what’s his story? Here are five things to know about Jack Gleeson. Keep reading »
Remember Edward Furlong, the adorable Terminator-fighting kid in “T2″? Or maybe you recall him in “Pecker”? Well, these days, he’s not doing so hot. It seems he’s spent the last few years battling a heroin addiction and doing a few stints in jail. Now he looks less like a cute sallow-eyed teen and more like Leo from “Twin Peaks,” no? [ONTD]
I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world … For most of us, “Barbie Girl” was just a catchy pop song in the summer of 1997. But for some truly special individuals women, the Barbie doll lifestyle and the cartoonish femininity it suggests is a dedicated way of life. This here is Valeria Lukyanova, 21, of Russia, a normal-looking, pretty blonde woman … until she pops in blue contact lenses and piles on the makeup, at which point she totally looks like a Barbie doll come alive. Valeria’s wallpapered her Facebook page with pics of herself resembling the Mattel doll and the glassy-eyed vacant look is so severe, some people wonder if she’s even real. Photoshop hoax? “Real girl”? You be the judge. [Daily Mail UK]
After the jump, let’s meet some more real-life human Barbie dolls you might chance upon in the Barbie Dream House.
