Lana Del Rey Did Not Sleep Her Way To Fame

“It’s commentary, like, ‘I know what you think of me,’ and I’m alluding to that. You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.”

Lana Del Rey told Complex magazine that her song “Fucked My Way Up to the Top” is not about what you think. She did not sleep with some dude to land a record deal, thank you very much, and I find it annoying that this question follows her and other ladies through their careers. She seems to be feeling a bit dark and twisty these days, and in her interview, she talks about the pain her fame has caused her and what it means to have her work misinterpreted by the masses. According to her, those gold and platinum records don’t mean so much without supportive friends to share them with. [Complex]

10 Things We’re Shocked The Kardashians Don’t Already Promote, But Should

Following today’s news that the world’s most famous Momager, Kris Jenner, will soon release a Kardashian cookbook, it left us wondering what else the family could possibly monetize? They’ve already created clothing lines, self tanner, fragrances, accessories, lingerie and have been the faces of diet drinks, alcohol, shoes, and even pads for slight bladder leakage. But there are still a few untapped markets left for the Kardashians to bust into. Here are ten products we’re shocked aren’t already Kardashian-sponsored, that totally should be.

Even The US Government Is Playing Kim Kardashian’s Game

Kim Kardashian Game

Last night, the Twitter account for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Water accidentally tweeted that they’d made it to C-List celebrity status in Kim Kardashian’s super-addictive iPhone game. Someone at the EPA must be really hooked. Everyone needs a little downtime to just play games now and then, even if their job is saving the earth, right? The good news is the EPA handled it like champs instead of just pretending it never happened: Keep reading »

Jada Pinkett Smith On #JusticeForJada, Rape Culture, And Her Niece Being Roofied

“My niece was given a date rape drug that weekend. She’s 20-years-old – thank God nothing happened because she was with some responsible guys that took care of her. She was safe because she was with a group of friends that realized – she said, ‘Oh, my god, I can’t feel my … ” and she started losing consciousness. Thank god the people she was with put her in a room, closed the door, and she didn’t come to for three and a half hours. … There is an epidemic going on out here in regards to the treatment of women. We have to figure out how we can empower people in different ways. … I’m not a conventional parent, which I take a lot of pride in. The first thing I had my niece do was sit down with my daughter and a couple of her friends and tell her about that experience. I don’t just sit with Willow and go, ‘hey, this is what Mommy thinks.’ Let me just bring in a little reality to validate what Mommy’s been talking to you about.”

This is Jada Pinkett Smith discussing about #JusticeForJada, the hashtag in support of a 16-year-old girl named Jada, whose sexual assault went viral on the Internet. While speaking at an event on Sunday night and then following up with US Weekly, Pinkett Smith revealed that her niece was roofied the same weekend as Jada’s assault. So the actress asked her niece to sit down with her 13-year-old daughter Willow and talk about the experience — not to scare her, I think, but to open her eyes to rape culture in a very concrete way.

After the jump, Pinkett Smith explained more how she is raising Willow to be confident and assertive:  Keep reading »

Kanye West (Sort Of) Addresses Why Jay-Z & Beyoncé Bailed On His Wedding

“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]
