We were more than a little surprised to hear that former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst — he who, at one time, so craved “the nookie” — would be getting his own sitcom. In it, he’ll be starring as a variation on Fred Durst — a meta-Durstian meditation on fame, celebrity and the vagaries of shopping at the Journeys at the Grove Mall when you’re over 35.
But Durst is hardly the only rocker to switch modes from stage antics to canned laughter. Check out our round up of other musicians who’ve made the move to the sitcom world.
Tyra Banks (with the help of Kristin Cavallari‘s butt) may have coined the term “booty tooch” to denote an over-exaggerated arch of the lower back to accentuate the posterior, but it’s hardly a new move. Watch out “America’s Next Top Model” hopefuls, because celebs have been tooching their booties, like, forever, they just didn’t know it had a name. Click through to check out some sexy celebrity booties being tooched.
Anyone else convinced Anna Faris on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend is going to be baller? I, for one, am psyched to see her loopy-loo goofy girl humor go head to head with Kristen Wiig. Maybe if we’re lucky she’ll bring that hottie husband of hers, Chris Pratt, along for the ride, too. [NBC]
NOTE: We had to take the photo in question down (image rights issue) but you can see it here and continue to discuss. Sowwy!
Kim Kardashian isn’t known for covering up, so this photograph of her trying on a burqa in Dubai is … weird … to say the least. There’s at least one other photo of Kim and her mom Kris Jenner walking down a Dubai street while Kris is wearing a veil, which I assume was her trying to be respectful of Muslim customs. (However, Dubai is a very modern city and other women in the photograph, including Kim, aren’t veiled.) Yet I feel sort of uncomfortable about Kim trying on a burqa — I assume “for fun” — when the face-covering veil is forced on women in other parts of the world, like Afghanistan. Maybe I’m overthinking this, though. What do you think? [Celebuzz] Keep reading »
No woman in this day and age is exempt from the overwhelming pressure to be whippet thin. Most popular depictions of females and femininity are marked by protruding clavicles, razor hipbones, and legs like string beans. High fashion models of today are the worst perpetrators with many models bringing skeletons to mind. It’s no wonder that the appearance of these girls leads many people to wonder if they ever eat at all! Epicurean pleasures — my personal favorite — are lost on them. How depressing is that?
And yet a trend of sorts has arisen recently in editorial photoshoot: models enjoying food. Read on for Terry Richardson‘s photos of high fashion models stuffing their faces, followed by a couple candids of models eating food in — gasp! — real situations.
