Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
The Kentucky Derby was this past weekend, and celebs and socialites alike came out in droves to support their favorite horse–or favorite cocktail. A Kentucky-bred horse named Animal Kingdom took top honors at the track, and his name was rather in line with the wild fashions on display at the Derby itself. Check out what the celebs wore — and whose style trotted into last place — after the jump!
Remember that iconic photo of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the White House Situation Room watching the raid in Pakistan which killed Osama bin Laden? (Top photo!) Well, a conservative Hasidic Jewish newspaper in Brooklyn for Hasids completely edited Hillary Clinton and the other woman in the Situation Room out of the photo. (See bottom photo!) They’re gone entirely! It’s a Situation Room full of dudes.
In Hasidic culture, unrelated men and women do not socialize with each other; in some communities, men and women don’t even work alongside each other. Some say Hillary Clinton and counterterrorism analyst Audrey Tomasen were Photoshopped out because the Hasids didn’t want to depict women in positions of authority or because the women mixing with men with whom they are not related is sexually suggestive. (Hillary’s pantsuits are so sexually suggestive.) The newspaper, Der Zeitung, has not commented on to why they erased the women from the pics. But who cares what their reason is? Erasing two women from a moment that will go down in the history books — that they experienced — is sexism, plain and simple.
The world was thoroughly enchanted with Pippa Middleton‘s butt in her white maid-of-honor dress at Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding. And naturally, people want to see more of her … body. Vivid Entertainment has apparently offered Pippa $5 million to shoot a single explicit scene in a porno. Vivid president Steven Hirsh says he was even more enticed by Pippa after seeing the “Girls Gone Wild”-ish photo of her dancing in her bra with an equally drunk, undressed chap. “After seeing photos of you having a great time at a party, I decided to offer you a role in one of our upcoming movies,” Hirsch wrote.
Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd, Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ellie Kempner
When Jon Hamm shirtless is not the best part of the movie, you know it’s a good one.
That’s my summary of “Bridesmaids” in one sentence.
But of course, there’s more to say… Keep reading »
“The Alanis [Morissette] I know is really fun to be around and really thoughtful and sweet. I think there’s a lot of things in Jagged Little Pill that are very deep and fueled by her interactions with a lot of people. At the time we were dating, she was writing a lot of music, and I was a newly divorced, single father with a two-year old son. She was living in Ottawa, Canada and I was living in Los Angeles. It was a tough time for me and a lot of distance for a budding relationship. I’ll always think of her as a really great person. As far as being the so-called subject of ‘You Oughta Know’…I’ll just let the urban legend folks keep spinning on that one.”
— Oh, Uncle Joey, why do you deny “You Oughta Know” is about you? Dave Coulier totally admitted in a 2008 interview with the Calgary Sun the song is about him. Dave told the paper then, “I said, ‘Wow, this girl is angry [when he first heard the song while driving].’ And then I said, ‘Oh man, I think it’s Alanis.’ I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, ‘I think I have really hurt this person.’” Hey, I guess she really was there to remind him of the mess he left when he went away.
