Adele Hates Paying Taxes As Much As Us Normal Folks

“Trains are always late, most state schools are s**t and I’ve gotta give you like four million quid. Are you having a laugh? When I got my tax bill in from [her first album] 19, I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.”

— Could Adele be any more relatable and down-to-earth? It turns out the hottest singer in the world right now hates paying taxes as much as the rest of us. (Don’t worry, she has an accountant!) It also sounds like Adele is super-generous with all the money she’s earned: she bought two homes in London for herself and her mom and set up trust funds for several cousins who are “young mums.” I love this woman.

What Models Really Look Like — Without Photoshopping

Though we logically know that the images we see in magazines have been airbrushed and retouched beyond recognition, it’s still hard not to compare ourselves to the glossy, fresh and smooth faces and bodies we see. Which is why it’s healthy to take a glance at photographer Scott Trindle’s photos of models in their natural state. From top left, clockwise, Raquel Zimmerman, Natalia Vodianova, Jessica Clarke and Kristy Hume show their brave and makeup-free faces to the world. [Styileite] Keep reading »

Ken Jeong Says Mr. Chow Was Inspired By His Wife’s Battle With Breast Cancer

“There’s a little bit of Joe Pesci in ‘Goodfellas,’ a little bit of Heath Ledger’s Joker in ‘The Dark Knight,’ and everything else is just kind of in my head. Mr. Chow’s voice is a little Vietnamese [like his in-laws], a little Korean, and a lot of mayhem … My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago and I’m happy to say she’s cancer-free. She was going through chemotherapy when I was offered the job for ‘The Hangover’ and I almost turned it down. Tran, my wife, insisted that I do it … I think the reason I played Chow so aggressively and over-the-top in the first movie was, for me, a catharsis. If I had not done that, I would have had a nervous breakdown in real life. Even if ‘The Hangover’ wasn’t a success, it’s the best project I’ve ever been a part of because it got me through the worst period of my life. It saved me.”

—Ken Jeong, who happened to be a full-fledged doctor before getting bit by the acting bug, talks about his iconic role in “The Hangover,” Mr. Chow, and how his wife’s battle with breast cancer inspired his performance. Jeong also shares that, for “The Hangover 2,” which opens this weekend, Tran traveled with him to Thailand. “I was just so happy that Tran was there … I felt like an Asian Rick James.” Amazing. Love him. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Does An Art Film Called “Lindsay Lohan”

The words ‘Lindsay Lohan‘ and ‘art film’ may go together like ‘Anna Nicole Smith’ and ‘Buckingham Palace,’ but try to scrub “I Know Who Killed Me” from your brain for a minute if you can. The house arrest hellion is the star of an two-minute-long art film called “Lindsay Lohan” by Richard Phillips, to be screened eventually by the Gagosian Gallery in L.A. In the meantime, you can watch it online and, uh, enjoy the references to Ingmar Bergman’s “Persona” and Jean-Luc Godard’s “Contempt,” apparently. All I was reminded of, though, was how Lohan is truly quite beautiful. [Los Angeles Times] Keep reading »

Jason Sudeikis Ambushes The MTV Movie Award Nominess

In this video, he stands in for Kristen Stewart‘s hair stylist, threatening to give her a bowl cut.

After the jump, see him pop up as Leighton Meester’s dentist. Happy gas abounds. Keep reading »

Beat The Burn: 5 Tips To Save Your Skin This Memorial Day Weekend

With temperatures expected to reach their highest yet this Memorial Day weekend, you may have plans to soak up the sun. So StyleList tapped Dr. Robin Schaffran, board-certified dermatologist and creator of Dr. Robin for Kids sunscreen, for five simple tips to help you beat the burn.

1. Apply sunscreen liberally 20 minutes before sun exposure. Most people use too little. In fact, according to a study published in the Archives of Dermatology, sunscreen users only apply 50 percent of the recommended amount so they are only receiving 50 percent of the SPF protection. An average adult in a bathing suit requires one ounce (equivalent to two tablespoons or shot glass full) of sunscreen to cover the entire body. For small children, one tablespoon should be used on the entire body. Read more… Keep reading »
