Gleek Dianna Agron Defends Her GQ Cover

“In the land of Madonna, Britney, Miley, ‘Gossip Girl,’ other public figures and shows that have pushed the envelope and challenged the levels of comfort in their viewers and fans, we are not the first. Now, in perpetuating the type of images that evoke these kind of emotions, I am sorry. If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention. And if your eight-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there? … These aren’t photos I am going to frame and put on my desk, but hey, nor are any of the photos I take for magazines … If you asked me for my dream photo shoot, I’d be in a treehouse, in a wild costume, war-paint and I’d be playing with my pet dragon.”

—Dianna Agron, aka Quinn on “Glee,” responds to folks being up in arms over her risque shots in the November issue of GQ. I hope some magazine is working on that pet dragon concept as we speak. [Fell Down The Rabbit Hole] Keep reading »

“OK!” Magazine Co-Opts Bullying For Stars “Bullied For Their Weight”

The effects of bullying are in the news everywhere lately, from the teen girl, Megan Meier, who killed herself after being harassed on MySpace, to Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi and the spate of copycat suicides that followed him. As crushing as the reports of each new suicide can be, I’m also grateful that the mainstream media is finally paying attention to the issues that lay underneath bullying — like an article about Clementi that made last week’s cover of People magazine. Any conversation about bullying is an opportunity to make people think about their own use of intimidation and the abuse of power.

But I take issue with OK! magazine’s recent cover depicting Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jennifer Hudson under the tag line “Bullied For Their Weight: They’ll Never Call Me Fat Again!” Um, skinny, beautiful, rich women are the two victims you could come up with for a bullying story? And they stuck it to their bullies by going on a juice diet? Yeah, that’s the message we want to send: capitulate to the bullies and you won’t be given crap anymore! If some jerks is calling you a heifer, drop from size 16 to size 4. That’ll show ‘em. Keep reading »

The 10 Juiciest Quotes From Oksana Grigorieva’s First Interview

The audio of Mel Gibson horribly berating his ex, Oksana Grigorieva, has done more than enough damage to his career and has left him with the label of an overall horrible human being. Though Oksana has hardly left the drama unscathed, plenty of unsavory rumors have spread about the Russian singer—including that she is a gold digger, extortionist, liar, and bad mother.

After the jump, the most revealing quotes from the five-page interview. Keep reading »

Alexander Skarsgard Explains How This Rolling Stone Cover Came To Be

“We showed up and we shot very PG-13 with our clothes on for basically the whole day, like six or seven hours. Then towards the end the photographer said, ‘I have this, these shots are beautiful and the magazine is going to be happy with them but I’d like to try something if you guys are game.’ He explained it and it was just one of those things in the moment where we all looked at each other, we’d spent all day with the photographer, we felt comfortable with him, we knew that he was great and the atmosphere was right and we were like, ‘F*** it, let’s do it.’ No one thought that the magazine would go for it.”

Alexander Skarsgard on why he decided to strip down for the infamous naked-and-covered-in-blood “True BloodRolling Stone cover [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
