Sharon Stone Thinks Kim Kardashian Is A “Smart Cookie”

Sharon Stone should probably put down the crack pipe because it’s making her lose her damn mind. Apparently she thinks Kim Kardashian is a “smart cookie,” a title she’s earned by making millions upon millions of dollars by selling herself like a prostitute in every arena that will take her. I mean, uh, successfully releasing several product lines, being on reality TV, etc. (GOD, MAKE IT STOP!) Read more at Evil Beet Gossip…

Amber Heard Is Not “Ashamed” To Be Bisexual

Amber Heard is notoriously private about her personal life — especially when it comes to dating Johnny Depp. Nevertheless, she in no way regrets her decision to come out publicly as bisexual back in 2010.

“I didn’t want to look like I was hiding anything,” Heard tells the September issue of Elle, alluding to her then-relationship with photographer Tasya van Ree. “I’m not, and wasn’t ever, ashamed.” Read more at Celebuzz…

Words of Wisdom from Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland was a groundbreaking editor, fashion legend and inveterate tastemaker. She worked as an editor with Harper’s Bazaar and spent 20 years there before switching over to become the editor of Vogue,  and ended her career as a curator and consultant at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Think of her as Anna Wintour before Anna Wintour.

In her time, Vreeland was basically at the center of the socialite universe — dressed by Chanel and Balenciaga; friends with everyone from Jack Nicholson to Cole Porter to Wallis Simpson and Jackie Kennedy; privy to an audience with the King of England. She traveled extensively, which is where she picked up a lot of her favorite style inspirations including thong sandals (which didn’t exist in the West until she brought them  over from Tunisia) and animal prints. She wasn’t considered conventionally beautiful — in fact, her mother once scathingly told her, “It’s too bad that you have such a beautiful sister and that you are so extremely ugly and so terribly jealous of her.” She also, clearly, had a terrible mother.

Vreeland had a reputation for being tough to work with, but her vision was strong and her influence widespread.  She helped launch the careers of models like Twiggy, Edie Sedgwick and Cher, and photographer Richard Avedon (of whom she misnamed “Aberdeen”).  She was smart––and she got results, transforming Vogue into a high-fashion thinking woman’s magazine.

She was also really witty. You know that common turn of phrase, “_____ is the new ____?” She invented that. Her 1984 memoir DV is filled with witty bon mots, hilarious turns of phrase and moments of genius. After the jump, 22 of our favorite Vreeland quotes. Keep reading »

“I was in complete denial. I tried to drown myself in the toilet. I was in so much pain because of the detox from opiates and benzos. I was sitting in a cell with this girl; I was in protective custody, waiting to go to court. I asked her the one question you’re never supposed to ask somebody when you’re in jail: “What are you in here for?” She ended up telling me this horrific story about how her meth-addicted mom started giving her meth when she was 12. When you use meth for a number of years, you go into psychosis. You become schizophrenic, and that’s what happened to this girl. She had been using for four years, she was 16 at the time, and one day her mom told her, “I need you to save me. And the only way I can be saved is if you go kill the family across the street and wait for the police to show up.” She did—she slaughtered this family in full-on psychosis. One of them survived. The girl was about 22 when I talked to her. She had been fighting this case for five years. After I told her what I was going through, she said, “Remember, this time you can walk into that courtroom with God.” Keep reading »

“Reports that the Staples Center will not be 100% vegetarian on March 1st are playfully untrue. Contractually, all McDonalds vendors shall be closed down, and the only thing burning shall be my heart.”

Morrissey, who loves ruining it for others, is demanding that Los Angeles’ Staples Center venue be meat-free for his March concert. You know, the more we ignore him, the closer he gets … to being a perpetually bratty teen hoping to piss off his conservative parents. Shine on you crazy vegetarian diamond. [BlackBook]

“We started to get a theory that when you don’t go [to the Grammys], that’s when you win. But Nancy [Shevell, McCartney's wife] likes the event, and I do too, because she does. In some ways, it’s better than the Oscars – the Oscars are great and super-important, but the Grammys is like a really cool concert and you get some very good performances. But this is what happens: We went a couple of times and sort of sat there, and graciously accepted defeat. With that moment you look for at the Oscars or the Grammys, when the cameras go to the people who didn’t win, and they’re smiling wonderfully and applauding. ‘And the winner is – John Mayer!’ And you go: [through clenched teeth] ‘Oh, wonderful. How wonderful. What a good singer.’ Secretly you’re thinking, ‘He’s not as good as me though.’ It’s a very human moment.”

– Paul McCartney has a bit of a reputation as a difficult, cranky guy, but hello — he was in the Beatles, he can do whatever he wants. Including diss John Mayer, very publicly, via The New York Times. [NYTimes]
