“All that, I wouldn’t even speak on. It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me.”
Kanye West has a big, meaty profile in GQ and it’s filled with Kanye-isms about art, celebrity, happiness, Kim, North, and some weird tangent where he insists he is not a shark but a “blowfish.” But let’s get real — we wanted to hear Kanye clear up some of the rumors surrounding his wedding. No, he did not give a 45-minute toast to himself. No, there was no ”Gold Toilet Tower.” No, he did not saw up the entire bar apart in front of the Italian construction team who had just built it. But the rumor we really wanted addressed was why Jay and Bey completely bailed on the wedding. And Kanye’s response is pretty much: who cares? [GQ] [Image via GQ]
Not gonna lie, I totally have a thing for Bear Grylls. The adventurer and avid pee drinker (so hydrating!) reminds me of a less angry Christian Bale with a bit of a death wish. NBC agrees with me, which is why they’ve given him his own primetime TV show, called “Running Wild With Bear Grylls” (premiering July 28), and are bringing in the big guns for the first episode in the form of a shirtless Zac Efron. Zac apparently considers himself a “moderate to advanced outdoorsman,” but will he have the guts to rappel down a waterfall? Not sure they prepared him for that on the set of “High School Musical.”
Either there was a sudden casting dust-up and Beyonce is going to be ass up in the Red Room of Pain as Anastasia Steele … or Bey contributed a track to the movie’s soundtrack. Regardless, she must have gotten pizzzzzzaid because last night, Beyonce teased the upcoming “Fifty Shade of Grey” trailer on her Instagram.
If you’re not caught up on “Homeland,” beware that there are spoilers ahead, i.e. in the very next sentence so stop reading now, you’ve been warned. When we last saw “Homeland”‘s Carrie Mathison, the bipolar CIA agent was mourning the death of her beloved tiny-lipped, ginger-haired, terrorist-sympathizing boyfriend Brody, expecting his child and preparing to take a new job as Station Chief in Istanbul. Fans were left wondering how the show would evolve now that it wasn’t going to be Brody-centric, and I’m afraid this teaser trailer for the fourth season doesn’t tell us much. Thankfully, we can take comfort in the knowledge that while Brody is six-feet-under, Saul Berenson and Peter Quinn still have Carrie’s back.
It’s not enough to live in a world with Kate Middleton and Prince William impersonators, or a prematurely-canceled television show devoted to a Prince Harry “doppelganger” trying to trick a bunch of dumb American women into believing he’s the real royal. Now we gotta drag the baby into it, too. Meet Freddie Minnis, an 11-month-old baby boy from Essex in the UK who is a Prince George lookalike. What that means beyond being a publicity stunt for the website which hosted the lookalike contest, I don’t know, but I’m sure Freddie’s mum is relieved she can put this kid to work pronto. Although … they both just look like regular babies to me. [Daily Mail UK] [Left image via Daily Mail UK; right image via Getty]
“I commend him for his courage. This is not normal for him. He’s so graceful and utterly kind and golden. It is amazing. He’s just so beautiful and handsome to me, and I love that his eyeballs are so beautifully captured because those eyes just knock me out every day. He just gets better every year. He’s just like a lost gem in the sand, and he’s just always been there and been brilliant, and now this is just in a different light.”
I love it when celebrities seize an opportunity to glow about their significant others and just run with it. In this case, Jennifer Aniston was at a party celebrating her fiance’s Details cover and shared some details of her own about what makes Justin so special. She really laid it on thick, huh? A golden, graceful, brilliant lost gem in the sand, staring up at her with his beautifully captured eyeballs. Was she high? She sounds high. [WWD]
I remember when “True Blood” first debuted and we got our first glimpse of New Zealander Anna Paquin (then still best known for her Oscar-winning role in “The Piano” years before) as blonde waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Paquin looked so different and not like herself as a blonde, but thanks to her complete embodiment of the role, it didn’t take long before it became hard to imagine her as anything but a towhead. Well, Anna’s apparently been itching for a change, so when “True Blood” finished filming its final season this week, the actress went straight for the bottle. The dye bottle. Paquin posted these photos to social media yesterday, showing off her new purple and blue hair, and I think it looks amazing. Hmm, maybe it’s time I did a little experimenting… [E! Online]
Anna’s new look is daring, sure, but it’s also surprisingly “on trend,” as the lady mags say. Many fashionable celebs have dyed their hair some shade of purple, lilac, lavender or eggplant in the last few years. Maybe purple is the new ombre? Click through for more…
