I wasn’t so interested in watching the first episode of Jay Leno’s new prime-time show last night, until I heard that Kanye West
was appearing, to talk about the Taylor Swift Debacle of 2009
. And I gotta say, after a lame apology on his website yesterday, Kanye seemed really sincere, at least partly because Jay took a pot shot and asked Kanye what his mom would say. After a long pause, and maybe a moment of almost crying, Kanye said, “I deal with hurt. So many celebrities, they never take the time off and I’ve never the taken the time off—it’s music after music and tour after tour. And I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt. I don’t try to justify it, because I was in the wrong. But I need to, after this, take some time off and analyze how I’m gonna make it through the rest of my life.”
Then this morning, Taylor Swift appeared on “The View.” See her after the jump. Keep reading »
Apparently, Lady Gaga has evolved beyond her penchant for pantslessness. It is no longer enough! Henceforth, all public appearances will be made both pantsless and topless, as evidenced by her completely see-through getup at Marc Jacobs’ after-party last night. Blogger Amy Odell saw Gaga’s nipples with her own two eyes. [The Cut] Keep reading »
knows how to start a season right. Her interview with Whitney Houston yesterday (the second part airs today!) was even better than the season premiere in 2004 when every audience member left with a new car. Rather than interview Whitney in front of an audience, Oprah sat down to chat with her in an empty auditorium, which was a little awkward, but once Whitney started talking, you didn’t notice anymore. “[Bobby] was my drug,” she said. “I didn’t do anything without him. I wasn’t getting high by myself. It was me and him together, and we were partners, and that’s what my high was—him.”
In addition to describing their drug of choice, she also revealed what we all suspected—that there was physical abuse in the relationship. “He slapped me once, but he got hit on the head three times by me,” she said. Her daughter walked in the room just in time to see Bobby on the floor bleeding. And in the clip above, Whitney talked about her mother coming to her house with the police to force her into rehab. “She said, ‘I’m not losing you to the world. I’m not losing you to Satan. I want my daughter back.’ She said, ‘If you move, Bobby, they’re gonna take you down.’ ” Keep reading »
Most of the designers at New York Fashion Week are showing their womenswear collections, but that doesn’t mean they don’t understand the importance of a little eye candy. Many of the designers have sent some hot men down the runways as well, even those designers who are predominantly showing for women. Here are the 10 sexiest male models whom designers found hot enough to bring a little testosterone to the tents.
It being Fashion Week and all, it’s a bit inevitable that we’re thinking about size. As much fun as it is to watch beautiful designs come down the runway, there’s always the underlying thought, Wonder if that would fit me?
And so, we’re getting hung up on how designer sizes are never consistent! You know the dilemma: You pick up a garment to take to the dressing room and find with horror that some designer “expert” has decided to tell you, “Dear Shopper, you are actually a size 1,000 XXXXL.” Why do so many designers size down their clothing? (Seems like a bad marketing tactic.) But then again, there’s always the secret joy of finding labels that make you think you’ve just magically lost 30 pounds.
After the jump, our experiences behind the dressing room door. Share your own experiences in the comments! Keep reading »
