Told you I wasn’t done posting about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding! (As much as I thought I wasn’t going to want to, writing about Kimye is actually a lovely reprieve from certain other depressing subjects that I’ve been otherwise engrossed in.)
So! Here’s what we know: Kim wore a custom Givenchy dress for the ceremony and this is the only photo we’ve got of it so far, since the official photos have apparently been exclusively granted to Vogue. (Kanye and daughter North also wore custom Givenchy.) Andrea Bocelli sang Kim down the aisle, John Legend sang that song “All Of Me” at some point, and the couple’s first dance was to Etta James’ “At Last” and Otis Redding’s “These Arms Of Mine” and “Tenderness.” Long first dance, guys. Anyway, then Kanye grabbed the mic and rapped a bit because of course.
Later on, Kanye gave a wedding speech, nay, rant that, according to Us Weekly, went like this: Keep reading »
Here is a photo of Kim Kardashian and fiance Kanye West headed to their rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles, yawn, in Paris. Matching-ish tuxedos with plunging necklines — cute! God, I can’t wait for this spectacle to be OVER. One. More. Day! [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
Welp, another one of our dream celebrity boyfriends is off the market, but I gotta say, I’m stoked to see “one of us” — i.e. a commoner! — has snagged him! Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the dreamy actor/director behind one of my fave movies of the last few years, “Don Jon,” is dating Tasha McCauley, a cofounder of a Silicon Valley robotics company. Um, hi, smarty pants. The two were photographed being all chummy and adorable in LA this week (you can see the photos here), the first time they’ve been spotted together since JGL confessed that he had a secret girlfriend back in September 2013. “‘I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,” he told Howard Stern. “The girl that I’m with, she really doesn’t want to be a part of it and you can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny.” Oops, sorry. Well, for what it’s worth, I think McCauley sounds rad. She speaks English, Arabic, and Spanish, and addition to founding Fellow Robots, a telepresence technology company (whatever the fuck that means), McCauley also founded the 10^9+ Foundation, which encourages students to develop technology that will positively affect the world’s population. Get it, girl. [Daily Mail UK]
I enjoy love stories like this because one of my goals in life — in addition to publishing a book, going to space, and having a baby or two — is to bed a celebrity. Preferably one whose name rhymes with Bryan Tosling. It’s a long shot, but what keeps my hope and fantasy fires stoked are the many male celebs who’ve dated or settled down with a woman who’s significantly less famous than them — or a complete commoner, like yours truly. Besides JGL, here are some other non-famous women who’ve managed to nab a star…
“You get together and you’re two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy. After all these years, we have history – and when you have history with somebody, you’re friends in such a very real, deep way that there’s such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together.”
I absolutely adore Angelina Jolie‘s description of the love between her and fiance Brad Pitt, who’s father to their six children. Angelina also tells ELLE that she’s surprised by the way her life has turned out, saying, “I never thought I’d have children, I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person. Having come from a broken home—you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them.” Oof, that’s something I can definitely relate to. Now … where’s my Brad Pitt? [ELLE via People]
