Zoe Saldana is kind of, maybe just a little bit, having a moment. She progressed from a young ballerina yearning for success in 2000′s Center Stage to the prettiest Na’vi in Avatar. Now, she’s taken on a public persona as Bradley Cooper’s latest (rumored) arm candy, not to mention a good samaritan who rushed to the aid of a woman injured in a car crash last week. She also appears to have an uncanny eye for style: she’s evaded many of the fashion pitfalls that many young (and not-so-young) actresses face. Basically, the girl can do no wrong, from the red carpet to the streets of Culver City. Keep reading »
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been dying to know what Megan Fox would look like with bulging, vein-y thigh muscles and an angry neck. theBERRY imagines other stars on ‘roids at the link… [theBERRY]
College, man. You can study just about anything. I know I did. When I was in grad school I wrote papers on 1) black and white cop buddy movies, 2) riot grrl and 3) drag queens on film. Like, really. So there’s that. And now, over at Rutgers University in New Jersey, you can take an entire class on Beyoncé. The class will focus on the continuum between Beyoncé Knowles in regards to black feminism, studying Bey’s lyrics alongside/against historical black female figures like Alice Walker and Sojourner Truth. So…. “Single Ladies” vs. The Color Purple? “Run the World (Girls)” vs. Ain’t I A Woman? “She certainly pushes boundaries,” said Professor Kevin Allread of the class. ”While other artists are simply releasing music, she’s creating a grand narrative around her life, her career, and her persona.” Keep reading »
The 911 call made by Demi Moore’s friends on Monday night has been released. (You can listen here.) A panicked friend says the actress is “convulsing” and “semi-conscious” after “she smoked something, it’s not marijuana, but it’s similar to … it’s similar to incense and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort.” The friends hand the phone around to each other — and at one point, if I’m not mistaken, two people address “Ru,” possibly referring to her daughter Rumer — as they urge the dispatcher to send paramedics immediately because she’s “burning up” and breathing “shakily.” Keep reading »
I’m not saying Rihanna’s got bad style, but she’s certainly had her fair share of total, uh, fashion mistakes. So it’s interesting that she’s decided to enter the realm of reality fashion television with a new British design competition show. Then again, the new, as-yet-unnamed show is focused on creating outlandish and extreme outfits for pop stars and celebrities. And considering how much Rihanna likes touching her crotch, and wearing practically nothing (or skimpy outfits seemingly made of fake nails and Chicklets), she probably knows a thing or two about designing wild clothes.
Sadly, Rihanna won’t be hosting the show, but she is set to play a heavy role in casting and producing, and will make several appearances throughout the season. Brit singer Nicola Roberts of the band Girls Aloud is set to host. And the contest winner? Well, they get to design an outfit for Ms. Rihanna herself to wear during a Hyde Park concert in London next summer. [NYMag.com]
