We know you had a blast this New Year’s, but how did some of our favorite celebs ring in 2011? If you’re Lindsay Lohan, you pull a Gandhi quote out of your butt. Lindsay is apparently turning over a new, mellow leaf. She tweeted: “Today is the first day of the rest of my life. ‘The future depends on what we do in the present.’ -Mahatma Gandhi… One step at a time….” That’s right, Lindz.
After the jump, we’ve got a roundup of some of Twitter’s most, uh, prolific and famous users. Keep reading »
Celebrities change their hair as often as they change their outfits, thanks to the beauty of extensions and on-call hair stylists. And despite knowing better, regular women attempt to keep up with the ADD tresses of famous ladies, while factoring in budgets and physical hair capabilities. But even with their limitations, women all over will still undergo hair transformations 104 times over in a lifetime! Between highlights, bangs, cuts, coloring, and styling, those little trips to the salon turn into a lifetime of hair changes, about three different colors, and at least two hair updates a year. The reasons are numerous: boredom, breakups, trends, and milestones, to name just a few, but media attention regarding the slight changes in a celebrity’s hair undoubtedly affects our decisions too. Just look at how many people set off for a visit to their stylist, a picture of “Rachel Green” in hand, after Jennifer Aniston debuted her shaggy ‘do, and then followed the many stages of Rachel styles. Personally, I’m in a totally different category. I’ve found my go-to hair ‘do and stick with it, only visiting the salon when my hair needs a trim or split ends are driving me crazy, so I can’t imagine I’ll hit the 104 number in my lifetime. Will you? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
We know her as the most level-headed, calm, relatively down-to-earth member of “The Hills,” and now Lo Bosworth is cashing in on her reality TV role to launch her very own advice and lifestyle website! C’mon, are you that shocked? After all, “The Hills” is ending, so each cast member needs to find a way to stay in the limelight. Lo’s M.O. is to join a growing group of celebs who’ve created their own media “empires,” like Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP and Teri Hatcher’s Get Hatched. Aptly named The LoDown, the site will provide a venue for Lo to continue to dish out her sage advice to teenagers and 20-somethings who avidly watch the scripted reality TV show. Given the fact that she’s the only member of “The Hills” who keeps her personal life and “professional” life somewhat separate, I have to admit that I might actually read her advice. Plus, the site’s name is pretty catchy. [Racked] Keep reading »
Behold! The airbrush-free April issue of French Marie Claire. This magazine is hope for womankind, a symbol of the new age of realism and our society’s understanding that our ideal of perfection isn’t achievable in real life. Oh. Wait. It’s not. In fact, everyone in it still looks more or less flawless. After you get through a slew of Photoshopped ad pages to arrive at the actual editorial content, you get a gander at the editors’ version of realistic. Hint: It’s thin and probably 15 years old. A few more images, after the jump! [The Cut] Keep reading »
A buddy of mine recently told me that he and his girlfriend have an arrangement. The deal is this: They both have a list of five celebrities they are allowed to sleep with in the highly unlikely event that such an opportunity presents itself. Oh, but I’m wise to the she-brain. I had to nobly inform my friend that this was not a binding agreement. That it’s just a way that women humor men.
You women think you’re so-o-o-o clever. But are you really? Or is it that men are just real knuckleheads when it comes to believing what we want to be true? It’s not receding! She loves graphic novels. I can bang another woman and she’ll be fine with it. We want to trust you, especially when you give us tacit approval to stick it in another woman, even if she is out of our league. Out of our dimension, really. “It’s best not to fall for this trap,” I told him. “I’ve been there! Dudes 4 eva!” This conclusion ticked my brodawg off a little: It was a real agreement, and for that matter, he had the upper hand. In the right circumstance, he was fairly confident he could rail Megan Fox. That poor deluded bastard. Keep reading »
In her Salon piece, “A Nation of Attention Whores,” Mary Elizabeth Williams asks why everyone in this country seems so starved for fame. I think that very question is on everyone’s mind after the recent “Balloon Boy” incident. As Falcon Heene vomited on national television, you couldn’t help but feel sick about being taken for a [balloon] ride by his fame whore papa. And that’s just one of many examples of how people are doing crazier and crazier things to get their 15 minutes. Others: Meghan McCain’s boobs, Jon and Kate, Susan Boyle, OctoMom, Real Housewives, Perez Hilton—the list goes on and on. Ever since the evolution of reality TV and the internet, it is easier than ever for anyone to get famous for just about anything. No talent, intelligence, or hard work required. But why are we so obsessed with fame? Keep reading »
