Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Stephen Moyer, aka hot vampire Bill Compton on “True Blood,” took a bite outta teeny bopper Robert Pattinson, aka Edward Cullen in “Twilight.” In the June issue of Marie Claire, Stephen said of his fellow vamp-tor, “He’s a p***y! He’s the Slim-Fast, Diet Coke of vampires.” Oh, boys will be boys! But talk is cheap. We’d rather see them fight with some sweet vampire-on-vampire action! That would be H-O-T. Feast your eyes on these sexy actors who have played blood-sucking studs we’d kill for the chance to fang bang.
This summer, Anna Hathaway takes the stage in New York City as Viola in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. You might have thought that if the Hollywood A-lister was to play a Shakespeare role, it would be one that relies on her beauty, like a Juliet. Yet, Hathaway proves that feminine charm can have nothing to do with being sexy—her character, when washed ashore in a shipwreck, disguises herself as a page named Cesario with whom another woman, Olivia, falls in love. Anne told New York magazine that she was stoked on cross-dressing: “I was feeling like I could do more to get into my character,” she explains. “So I decided, What if I walked around New York trying to pass for a boy? What if I had to make people look twice to figure out what I was?” [NY Mag]
Here at The Frisky, we’re all about the boy style lately, so we’re intrigued by the appeal of the gender-bending world Anne will inhabit this season. After the jump, some of our favorite cross-dressing characters and moments in history! Keep reading »
Need just the right card to express your emotions on your cousin’s trip to rehab? Amy Winehouse has your back. The Sun is reporting that Winehouse is coming out with a line of gift wrap and greeting cards using her famous lyrics. (That’s a fake mock up card, to the left. )I guess that just because she’s on permanent vacay down in St. Lucia doesn’t mean her “people” can’t make money off of her—Amy’s publishers are rolling out “Rehab” wrapping paper (the song chorus will be printed continuously) followed by “Back To Black” and “You Know I’m No Good” greetings cards. Her publishers are claiming: “The Amy-branded cards are classy too. ‘You Know I’m No Good’ is best for heartfelt apologies and ‘Back To Black,’ with an appropriate wreath, will be the respectful response to a bereavement.” Now, who the hell will actually buy them? Those with friends currently doing a stint in rehab? [The Sun] Keep reading »
- Michael Jackson’s former wife, Lisa Marie Presley, says she is “very sad and confused with every emotion possible.” [Us Weekly]
- Who will raise Michael’s kids now? Apparently, he wanted Grace, the nanny to take care of them, however his mom Katherine wants them. [PopEater] — We hope this doesn’t turn into an ugly custody battle.
- Beyonce dedicated “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” to Sasha and Malia Obama at her Washington, D.C., concert. [Yahoo] — Does anyone else think this is a little bizarre, considering the girls aren’t even even of dating age yet?
Perez Hilton is not having a great week. He gets punched by the Black Eyed Peas tour manager, whines about it, is laughed at by, oh, just about everyone but Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, gets called out by GLAAD for calling Will.i.am a “f*ggot,” and is generally told to shut his pie hole by nearly the entire blogosphere. And then yesterday, when rumors began to swirl that Michael Jackson was hospitalized after experiencing cardiac arrest, he posted the photo above on his blog, with the following text:
We knew something like this would happen!! Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!! Supposedly, the singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!! His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!
We are dubious!! Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in ‘95 when he “collapsed” at rehearsal! He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!! Either he’s lying or making himself sick, but we’re curious to see if he’s able to go on!!! Get your money back, ticket holders!!!!
Once it was revealed that Jackson was indeed sick — and then had died — Perez took the photo down and deleted all but the first three sentences, as if his “dubious” feelings had never existed. But the internet doesn’t forget! Keep reading »
Bruno, aka Sacha Baron Cohen, was on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” last night and, as expected, he brought the flaming ridiculousness. Clip above! Keep reading »
I don’t usually have luck with vending machines because I’m a rather picky person, but if I were in Germany, I know there are 500 machines that would have me happy to make a purchase. TG-Gold-Super-Markt, a German company, has plans to install vending machines that sell gold as if it were chocolate bars. The machines will be in airports and train stations. The company hopes to capitalize on the increased interest in gold investments since people are wary of investing in other commodities. The machine prices will be 30 cents higher than the market value and will be updated every few minutes. TG-Gold-Super-Mark owner Thomas Geissler said, “German investors have always preferred to hold a lot of personal wealth in gold, for historical reasons. They have twice lost everything. Gold is a good thing to have in your pocket in uncertain times.” [Impact Lab] Keep reading »
I love it when celebs take to Capitol Hill to defend their various charities, organizations and causes. Sure, it’s nice to see them use their celebrity for good causes, but I especially love to check out their forced-looking uber-conservative get-ups! It’s the one venue where Hollywood tones down the cleave and the curves and goes light on the makeup—sometimes rendering stars totally unrecognizable! Just this week Nick Jonas made a pit stop to testify in front of the Senate on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (he was diagnosed with diabetes in 2005), and gotta say, his slim-lapeled, light grey flannel suit was snazy. It’s not always easy to make conservative look fashionable, as some of the next few celebs will prove…
