We love seeing celebs without makeup, and this year, People magazine’s “Most Beautiful” issue even featured a bunch of famous ladies sans fards. But it used to be that celebrities would avoid being seen without a full face of makeup. What changed? A fascinating article from New York magazine charts the changing celebrity attitude towards getting caught without their faces made. Stars like Snooki, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have all willingly been shot without makeup, with the idea that they’re somehow subverting the celebrity machine in doing so. Keep reading »
Russell Brand is opening up from his split from Katy Perry after 14 months of marriage — and he’s got a surprisingly positive outlook on the whole divorce.
“I still love her as a human being,” Brand tells Ellen DeGeneres in a new interview airing today. “Sometimes when you’re in a relationship I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything. I was very happy to be married with her. She’ s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.” Click here to watch the interview!
“I love my daughter and I will always love her. Stop being judgmental and critical. Do not close the doors to your loved ones, especially your children. What has taken place in my daughter’s life has opened many opportunities to go in and be with guarded and gated people. God has given us a platform to go in and meet people — and they like us because we are cool. We are not threatening.”
– Keith Hudson, joined by his wife Mary Hudson, addressed their daughter Katy Perry‘s split from husband Russell Brand in front of around 300 worshippers at their Westlake, Ohio, church this week. In the Hudsons’ faith, divorce is a sin, but Mr. Hudson seems to be implying that the sin is outweighed by the opportunity her career afforded them to spread the word of God to otherwise “guarded and gated” people.

That’s what Russell Brand had to say back in October 2010, just days before he wed Katy Perry in an extravagant ceremony in India. Now, of course, it seems like Brand lucked out, at least financially. Last Friday, the comedian filed for divorce from Katy Perry (who didn’t want to file herself and offend her extremely religious parents) and the couples’ assets are up for grabs. Brand apparently stands to make, gulp, an estimated $20 million from the pop star’s fortune because, under California law, the state’s community property clause splits money and property acquired during the union 50/50 when there isn’t a prenup. Someone should have told Katy that rich “California Girls” cover their assets before walking down the aisle. It remains to be seen, of course, how this will actually play out in court and whether Brand will actually go for “his” half of Katy’s fortune. [Hollywood Life]
