If I could go to one Fashion Week event this year, it wouldn’t be the Marc Jacobs show (yawn), or some party thrown by Terry Richardson (blech) — no, I’d want to go to SPIN and Refinery-29′s party tonight at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, sponsored by Virgin Mobile. Why? Oh, Azealia Banks is performing and I love her. Who do I have to talk to about getting an invite? My evening in wide open. While I wait to hear back about my VIP ticket, let’s get to know Azealia, shall we? Keep reading »
What is happening here? No really, WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE? Yes, Janice Dickinson appears to be suffocating porn star James Deen with her silicone lips outside of the Chateau Marmont. But WHY? Are they … dating? Or is this just a publicity stunt? Well, I guess he’s not sleeping with his co-star, Lindsay Lohan. This is almost more disturbing than that Kelly Preston/ John Travolta beard smooch a while back. Click through to see more of this awks make out session. [Photos: Pacific Coast News]
Country star Kellie Pickler (right) shaved off her signature bright blond hair yesterday to show support for her childhood friend Summer Holt Miller, a 36-year-old mother of two who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will begin chemotherapy this week. The two women appeared on “Good Morning America” this morning to discuss Pickler’s buzzed locks and raise breast cancer awareness. “If this compels even one person to change their mentality toward waiting until the age of 40 for their mammogram, then it will be worth it,” said Miller. What a brave and beautiful display of friendship. [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »
“Nobody wants to talk about their weight. For me, I have had to come to a place where I am comfortable with myself. I’m a mom now, and get to be a role model for this beautiful little girl … I feel like everybody can do what I am doing. I’m not a supermodel. My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiancé and herself.”
–Jessica Simpson, pop star, entrepreneur, and new mom to baby Maxwell, responds to USA Today‘s questions about losing her very famous baby weight. Now, don’t get me wrong, the article also contains the usual stats about her Weight Watchers points allotments, and I know she’s being paid ungodly sums of money to lose the weight, but still, I thought this quote was actually really thoughtful and inspiring, even. As someone whose never-had-a-baby body looks a lot like Jessica’s post-baby body, I’ve been very interested to see how the media–and more importantly, Jessica herself–handles her weight loss process. I’d love to hear more about her journey to find a healthy weight under massive pressure, but with her “new body” being unveiled on Katie “Eat A Sandwich” Couric‘s show next week, I’m afraid my hopes aren’t terribly high for a positive and honest conversation about body image and self-esteem.

Only in a perfect world, free of war and strife, could Lindsay Lohan have married Tom Cruise. But she couldn’t keep her sh-t together so we have to content ourselves with what might have been! In the wake of Cruise’s embarrassing expose from Vanity Fair, more tantalizing news is getting uncovered regarding Scientology’s wife auditioning process. One name that’s always been whispered about was Scarlet Johansson. Sources have alleged that Tommy wanted to make it work with Scarlett but she wasn’t having it so he moved on to Katie Holmes. Only, apparently, he made a pit stop at Lindsay Lohan first!
The Huffington Post reports that a source close to Lindsay (meaning Lindsay or Dina Lohan) is saying that the Chateau Marmont-banned actress had a sit down with Tom when he was fixin’ for a wife in 2005 but she was on to his game. Read more …
