Dakota Fanning’s Cosmopolitan cover raised some eyebrows because the “Twilight” actress is 17-years-old and we all know your hymen magically becomes open for business at midnight on your 18th birthday. Presumably, Cosmo‘s ad sales department knew this fact, which is why it sent out a sample mock-up cover to advertisers scrubbed of all the naughty stuff. The sample mock-up cover (at left) received by the NY Observer newspaper promises articles on “Spring Clothes, Hair, Nails” and how to “Feel Close After A Fight.” The actual cover (at right)? Sex! Vaginas! More sex! I guess the articled entitled “Um, Vagina, Are You Okay Down There?” wasn’t deemed advertiser-friendly. I can’t imagine why. [New York Observer] Keep reading »
I know I’m a few days late to the party, but the other night I saw a rerun of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” where she visited Steven Tyler at his Sunapee, New Hampshire home. The interview was chock full of redonkulous moments — like when he takes Oprah to visit the sacred place where he discovered his spirituality and they listen to the stillness. Or the moment he removes his socks to reveal his severely mangled feet. Yes, he is wearing a toe condom. And yes, he continues to play with it casually, while he answers O’s probing questions. These are just the hazards of being a rock star, I suppose — having feet that look like hooves. But this is nothing. The most incredible moment of incredible moments, is when Steven talks about conceiving his four children. “When we made love we cried — and after that we had a kid,” he says. WHATTTTTT? Did I hear him correctly? Steven believes that tears shed during sex signifies the conception of a baby? Please tell me I misunderstood him. Please. Whatever the hell that crazy coot meant, I think it’s safe to say that Oprah’s baaaccckkk.
Model Agyness Deyn may have just gotten her big acting break. Sure, she had a cameo in “Clash of the Titans,” but soon we’re going to get to see more of her on the big screen. A lot more. She’s landed the role of Flo, a “strong-minded stripper” in a remake of the the cult classic “Pusher.” Here is the first pic of Deyn rocking a red nipple tassel and trashy lingerie. It may not be the couture she’s used to, but she’s working it. Deyn is not the first to get on the pole for a role. Click through to see some more actresses who’ve played strippers. [Telegraph UK]
Dear members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences,
My mom says I am many things, among them: smart, hilarious, beautiful, pretty, extremely shed-y, bitchy, loud, psycho, trouble-making, and loving. One adjective she would not use to describe me is “talented.” Don’t worry — she accepts full responsibility for the fact that my sole trick is catching a ball in my mouth. I learned to pin down my soft, squeaky toy and hump it, but my mom says that while it’s funny and adorable, it is not really a talent that wins awards. But that’s why I’m writing — I think dogs should be able to win big awards for their talents, in particular their talents on the big screen. And so, I write to you to urge you to allow Uggie, the dog from “The Artist,” a shot at winning an Oscar at the 2012 Academy Awards. Keep reading »
