“Rude Boy” Robot Squirts On Rihanna’s Face At ECHO Awards

Rihanna performed her latest single, “Rude Boy,” at the ECHO Awards in Berlin last night. And I’m not sure which was worse, her mediocre singing, dancing, and prancing on stage, or the sexual innuendos between her and the two “District 9″ prawn-looking robots. I really expected some great entertainment when I saw her whining in the beginning, but I was just bored. I will give it to her for the realistic animatronic robots that must have cost a pretty penny, though. Keep reading »

Wear A Little Piece Of Bling Courtesy Of Your Favorite Dead Celeb

I just discovered this really creepy company called LifeGem that creates diamond jewelry from a lock of hair or the ashes of a deceased loved one, or even a pet, for anywhere between $4,000 and $20,000. I’m not quite sure I understand the process, but they claim to create a jewel molecularly identical to a diamond from the carbon imprint of your deceased. Their motto is “Because love lives on …” Can’t we just stick to an urn? Do I really want to wear Aunt Ida’s remains around my neck?

But this could get interesting in the world of celebrity memorabilia. Evidently, the company is turning a bit of Michael Jackson’s hair, burned in that infamous Pepsi commercial, into a special Michael jewel. Hopefully it will go in a LifeGem encrusted glove? [LifeGem]

After the jump, some more celebrity Life Gem bling that we are looking forward to seeing auctioned off on eBay. Keep reading »

Life & Style Needs To STFU

For f**k’s sake, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt cuts her hair and wears jeans and this tabloid rag calls in the experts to claim the 3-year-old has entered “cross-dresser territory.” She’s a tomboy, there is nothing wrong with that, and she is awesome. Seriously, this kind of tabloid fodder makes me want to crawl into a hole and never come out, it is so evil. From here on out, Life & Style won’t be getting linked to from The Frisky. Cretins.

Did Rihanna Use A Young Leukemia Sufferer As A Publicity Ploy?

Last year, Rihanna brought media attention to Jasmina Amena, a 7-year-old suffering with leukemia. Rihanna visited her young fan several times and called on the public to undergo bone marrow testing in an effort to find a compatible donor for her. But after Jasmina’s death last month, Rihanna seems to have forgotten about the Amenas. Recently, a tweet popped up on the OneForJasmina Twitter:

“It has been a month since Jasmina’s passing. Still not even a card or text message from Rihanna. Did she use my child for a publicity stunt?”

Frisky Rant: Lee Daniels’ NAACP Weight Gaffe Shouldn’t Have Been Deemed Offensive

The big to-do everyone is making over “Precious” director Lee Daniels’ acceptance speech at the 2010 NAACP Image Awards Saturday is unfounded. While accepting the Best Film honors, Daniels said, “No one in Hollywood told me they wanted to see a movie about a 350-pound black girl who had HIV.” After realizing his so-called “blunder” and that his statement could potentially embarrass breakout actress Gabourey Sidibe, Daniels tried to recover, saying: “She’s not 350 pounds … Gabby … But the book says … ” Sidibe sat in the audience shaking her head. Not only is this how author Sapphire described the title character in Push, but this is also a quote Daniels has given numerous times about the difficulties he faced trying to get “Precious” made. I can’t understand how people automatically thought he was referring directly to Sidibe. Perhaps folks were already far too aware of their discomfort with her size, and Daniels’ speech only reminded them of their prejudice, and they felt it politically correct to admonish him for it. However, this film doesn’t tell Sidibe’s story, and Daniels was referring to the character. Did audience members and viewers think Sidibe was HIV-positive too after Daniels’ speech? No, but since weight is such a controversial topic in our culture, the link between Precious and Sidibe was made. Sidibe knows she’s large and has given countless interviews in which she expresses how comfortable she is with her weight and how Hollywood needs to be more accepting, so it’s not a far stretch to argue that she would be comfortable at 350 pounds also. Nevertheless, sources say she was upset by Daniels’ remark. Sidibe has worn her weight like a badge of honor, but maybe she needs a sign that says: “I’m only proud to be 250 pounds” — or whatever the scale actually reads. Keep reading »

The Dalai Lama And Other Unlikely Twitterers

On Monday, the Dalai Lama’s Twitter account was launched and it’s being updated regularly. The Tibetan spiritual leader already has over 6,000 followers. This is a pretty big eff you to China, where Twitter is currently banned. [LA Times]

Quotable: Anthony Hopkins Says We’re Living In A Soulless Age

“You look at fashion magazines and you think, ‘What are we living in?’ You look at the red carpet, Paris Hilton, you know, these people and you think, ‘Is there anything going on up there?’ It’s a mass enslavement and it’s kind of fascism. And it’s the androgyny of it; the androgyny of the human soul. I don’t think people think any more. But maybe I’m just old.”
