“Hmm … good relationship advice for me tends to be being honest and knowing yourself. Don’t be an a**hole. That’s my advice. Don’t be mean. Don’t take s**t. Don’t settle.”
—Kristen Stewart gives Twilight scribe Stephanie Meyer her best relationship advice in the new issue of Glamour. I like that Kristen keeps it simple and, honestly, this is pretty sound advice. There have definitely been moments in relationships when I realize I am being a jerk and, yep, those would have been better avoided. [Huffington Post]
Warning: if Rihanna ever calls you the “c-word,” she means no offense! According to RiRi, people in Barbados are a lot more casual about using see-you-next-Tuesday than people elsewhere in the world. “‘Yeah, it’s funny. That word is so offensive to everyone in the world except for Bajans,” she told British Vogue. “You know African-Americans use the n-word to their brothers? Well, that’s the way we use the c-word. When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, ‘Hey, c**t,’ until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never know.” [Metro UK]
Good to know. But Rihanna isn’t the only celeb with a dirty mouth. Here’s nine other celebs just cruising to get their mouths washed out with soap.
“Often people are curious about the fact that I am married to a man but call myself queer. It’s because I have had sex with more than one person, and I had unmarried sex quite a few times, and roughly half the people have been men and the other half have been women, and then there were a few people in between those genders who identified in differing ways, so it’s up to me to define myself, too, and so that would be queer. It’s the most fitting description, short and concise … I would like to call myself bisexual more frequently because there is much invisibility for the ‘B’s in the LGBT community. Gays and lesbians might assume that we are not homosexual enough, and straight people might assume that we are in porn. These are both true and false for me. I am both too homosexual and not homosexual enough, and I have appeared in porn films but not having any kind of sex. I am considering this as a possibility for later in my career. How fantastic to start making hardcore porn at the age of 80.”
—Margaret Cho writes on the Huffington Post all about her sexual identity and attraction to androgyny. I can already hear a call being made to Margaret’s agent, booking her for her first porno in the year 2049. [Huffington Post]
“I think films are kind of catching up in a way to where television has been for a long time. Television is still, in my opinion, the best place for female characters. I’m so down with TV right now. Everything I watch is on TV and I love everything on TV and I think most TV shows are better than movies—there, I said it.”
—Amy Poehler talks at the New Yorker Festival this weekend about how enthused she is about the female characters she’s seeing right now on television. Of course, she is in part talking about her character Leslie Knope on “Parks and Recreation,” who Amy says is her “favorite feminist on TV.” Amy explains that she actually is a lot like Leslie in real life, except that Leslie “loves to go camping, and I do not.” [ONTD]
