What’s going on with the phallic imagery in these Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince posters? Young adult novelist Meg Cabot points out on her blog that there’s something strange, and clearly, um, preferential going on with Ron Weasley’s manly broomstick. Placed side-by-side, you see Ron’s thick and long broom pointing upwards, while Harry’s much smaller wand points down.
“Is this Daniel Radcliffe’s punishment because we’ve all seen him with his clothes off on YouTube?” questions Cabot hilariously. Maybe Warner Bros. execs have some secret plan for turning sidekick Ron into a teen hunk (he must feel pretty lousy, after all, when he’s got not only Daniel to contend with but also co-star Emma Watson, the world’s new It Girl). Cabot sure has a point about Ron’s beefy outfit and powerful stance: “If you were a teenaged girl, who would you rather go out with,” Cabot puts it simply. [MegCabot.com] Keep reading »

Daniel Radcliffe, who starred as the magical teen titan Harry Potter, earlier this week admitted he has neurological disorder, dyspraxia, which affects his coordination. But he can still cast a spell on you! Just check out his pony play spread in the September issue of Vogue. He’s riding horses and they’re all bareback — giddy up! Although the weird fetal/grandpa shot creeps us out, we’ll blame it (like the Miley Cyrus photo controversy) on famous photographer Annie Leibovitz. Sure, he says he stripped down to promote the new Broadway play he’s horsing around in — Equus — but we’ll take any excuse to see this barely legal babe in the buff! [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »
