Katy Perry said goodbye to her cotton candy pink locks in this ad for GHD hair styling products. Instead, she channeled her inner Snow White, holding a poisoned apple. Personally, I love this look and think it’s far superior to either Kristen Stewart or Lily Collins as the fairy tale heroine. I also love the fact that Katy’s version of the tale takes place in art deco era New York City. [Huffington Post]
“My mother said ‘I told you!’ She always thought—I hate this, but I’m being honest! She said, ‘I always knew you were gonna marry a white girl!’ It was a trip because [when Idina] took me home, her dad came out and I was like, ‘Ok, well take off that hood then and let’s see.’ No, I’m just kidding! I said, ‘You tough with the fiery cross in your yard!’ No, I gotta say I was really lucky. I don’t know what they felt on the inside, but I was very fortunate. They’re very loving, accepting. They’re great grandparents. I can’t lie, I had no issues there.”
—Taye Diggs jokes on Sway’s radio show about how he and wife Idina Menzel’s families reacted to their interracial relationship. The couple has a 2-year-old son, and Taye has now written a kid’s book called Chocolate Me, which teaches children to deal with racism and taunting from their classmates. [Hello Beautiful]
Ian Somerhalder, of “The Vampire Diaries” and “Lost,” is obviously one of the hottest guys on planet earth. And I especially love that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Take, for example, this photo shoot he did for Flaunt magazine. It’s so blissfully goofy. Let’s just say, I’d let him rescue me with that lifesaver any day.
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.
“I’m not that good looking. I think I’m a pretty weird-looking guy. Every role I got up until ‘The Notebook’ [in 2004] was the weirdo, freak, psychopath, nerd, outsider character guy. I think things have changed.”
– Ryan Gosling is not nearly as convinced of the legitimacy of his dreamboat status as the rest of the world. Hey, Ryan, we have something in common. I don’t think I’m that good looking either, which means that I’m totally in your league. So, let’s make out. [Chicago Sun-Times]
