Here is the cover of Kim Kardashian’s forthcoming book, Selfish, out in May 2015. This is the cover photo, and frankly, it’s amazing. I am sure the impending arrival of Kim’s coffee-table book of selfies will cause a lot of people to raise their fists in anger about how we are turning into a society of self-obsessed zombies with the compulsive need to document our lives as if they were important, but I disagree with these haters. If we look at her face and body of work as a study in the uncanny valley, then she is a genius. Her face is a perfect and confusing mix of artifice and reality, and because of that it’s mesmerizing. Besides, she’s just trying to live, like we all are, right? Let Kim do Kim. It’s what she’s good at. [Twitter]
Noted tattoo enthusiast and walking condom-beanie Justin Bieber will finally get the Comedy Central Roast treatment, according to Ryan Seacrest.. The special will tape in March and air at an undetermined time in 2015. I am sure the waiting list for participants is already long (Seth Rogen is surely first in line, given his longtime distaste for the Biebs), but I would like to nominate “Saturday Night Live”‘s Kate McKinnon to basically run the whole thing. I would actually love it if somehow, at the end, McKinnon’s jaw unhinges and she swallows the real Bieber whole, absorbing his life force, and giving her spot-on impression new, brute strength. Watch her spoof his Calvin Klein commercial on SNL above, and wait with bated breath for the roast, which will probably be the best thing you watch in 2015. [Ryan Seacrest]
There I was, enjoying my rainy Sunday afternoon, unshowered (natch), weaving in my rocking chair while watching series two of “The Fall,” when I took a second to click on this Daily Dot article while my Netflix stream buffered. (My wifi connection is sucking hard, Verizon.) Amber Rose just posted a series of asstastic Instagram pics in which she casually poses on a balcony in what is maybe Miami, and she’s wearing just a piece of string that has essentially been wound over and around naughty bits. I should probably stop what I’m doing and post those. I paused and just sat there. Ugh whatever, it’s just Amber Rose’s butt and it’s Sunday and I vowed not to do any work. Fuck it, it can wait. And then I tweeted that very thought, like I was kind of proud of sticking to my guns for putting my psychological need for a work-free Sunday before the possible benefits of blogging about this momentous occasion in celebrity asses. And then my friend Cooper at the Daily Dot, who is still in his twenties and full of youthful enthusiasm and energy and will probably be my boss in some capacity someday, was all, “BUT THE TRAFFIC…” And I felt a stab of guilt for possibly squandering this opportunity to grab some cheap traffic because . So now here I am, posting about these photos (more after the jump) and waiting for my video to buffer even more (because my wifi connection still sucks, Verizon!!). [Daily Dot] Keep reading »
I am so proud to be in a movie that is joyful and thoughtful and depicts a modern and authentic experience of unplanned pregnancy…Gillian Robespierre and Elizabeth Holm, who wrote this movie, assert that even while we’re fighting for our rights we can do so creatively. Activism and creative expression can go together.
Jenny Slate is one of those celebrities that I want to either be BFFs with or wear as a skin suit, it’s kind of hard to tell. I think she’s hilarious and uniquely beautiful and cool and nice-seemingly, and she made one of my favorite movies last year, “Obvious Child.” Last night, Jenny — we’re on a first name basis — won Best Actress in a Comedy at the Critics Choice Awards for her work in the film, which is about how a twentysomething woman handles an unexpected pregnancy. While on stage, Jenny took the opportunity to emphasize that the film is a form of pro-choice activism. Love it. [Jezebel]
