Soul Stepper Arin Lawrence Talks That Awesome Rick Owens Fashion Show She Performed In

Rick Owens step dance runway show

We were far from the only ones to be seriously stunned by Rick Owens’ above-and-beyond runway step show — it’s being called “one of the most innovative and exciting fashion shows” of recent recall. New York-based singer-songwriter Arin Lawrence, who performed as part of The Soul Steppers (just one of four groups featured in Owens’ show), regaled her story of the show, from its very germination last spring until last week’s ground-breaking performance, in an exclusive interview with BuzzFeed.

Shawn Carter Snags Vanity Fair Cover, Talks Bed-Stuy, Blue Ivy, And Bey

Jay Z covers the November issue of Vanity Fair

Jigga what? The Brooklyn-born rapper-turned-multimedia mogul, looking characteristically cleaned-up in a stark white suit, will line November newsstands on the cover of Vanity Fair. Jay Z has always given good interview, but a VF cover story is another matter entirely … and if the excerpts from the piece are any indication, Young Hov delivers. The conversation runs the gamut from his years spent slinging drugs as a Bed-Stuy teenager (and the surprising way in which that experience serves to benefit him now), wooing Beyoncé, the Blue Ivy surrogacy rumors, and, perhaps most importantly of all, whether Blue prefers his music or Bey’s. Some quotes from the interview, after the jump! Keep reading »

Watch A Preview Of Lindsay Lohan’s Oprah Interview

Lindsay Lohan has completed rehab and I couldn’t be happier that she is sober and doing well. Nevertheless, between “Chelsea Lately” and “Oprah’s Next Chapter” it all seems a bit fast. Shouldn’t she be taking a break from the spotlight to work on her sobriety? Isn’t it obvious at this point that fame is at least a part of her issues? Oprah asks her if she is an addict, which obviously she is and what it’s like to have her name, Lindsay Lohan, synonymous with “child star gone wrong.” Bummer. Read more at College Candy…

Gasp! A brand new Kate Moss editorial and interview in an American magazine? What have I done to deserve this? (Nothing, obviously. It just happened. They didn’t do it for me.) The O.G. supermodel has been keeping it more low-key than ever as of late, rarely photographed aside from candid shots of her strolling about London with husband Jamie Hince or tumbling out of a club every so often, but with a Playboy cover rumored to be on deck, it seems like Kate may just be getting a little bit better-acquainted with the press these days. The photoshoot is delightful, but as is always the case with Ms. Moss, the quotes are even better. Kate talks body image, her daughter’s fascination with “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “white bums,” after the jump… Keep reading »

In Which Dustin Hoffman Gives Me A Case Of The Cries

Dustin Hoffman talks about playing Tootsie
"If you were born a woman, how would you be different?"

I don’t think about Dustin Hoffman very often, except usually in the framework of his character Tootsie, from the 1982 cross-dressing movie of the same name. In grad school, I actually wrote my master’s thesis on “Tootsie,” sort of: It was called Violence and Desire: The Trans Body On Film, or something like that. (You can get master’s degrees from watching movies — I’m living proof.)

Anyway. Here’s Hoffman in a 2012 interview discussing what it was like to play Tootsie. Hoffman breaks down in tears at the realization that he’d been brainwashed by the media into believing that women who weren’t conventionally attractive had little actual value as people.

“There’s too many interesting women I have not had the experience to know in this life because I have been brainwashed,” he told his wife during filming. It’s a powerful moment of a man realizing how he’s bought into a false value system. I hope it sparks others to consider the same thing. [YouTube]

"Seriously, how are they gonna get enough material?"

Ryan Lochte is gearing up for his new TV show on E!,”What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” (which should really just be called “Swim Bros”). The show is manufactured by Wee Media Giant Ryan Seacrest, who’s made a living exploiting the fameball desires of idiots (see also: Kardashians). Lochte’s been doing lots of media interviews to promote the new series. Except you know who should, like, never talk to the media? Ryan Lochte. He reminds me of that “Bullets Over Broadway” scene with Diane Wiest and John Cusack. “Don’t speak!” says Wiest’s character Helen Sinclair to Cusack’s David Shayne as she covers his mouth with her hand.

Here, Lochte endures an interview with “Good Day Philadelphia” hosts Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle Jones, who cannot contain their laughter at Lochte’s ridiculous answers. Please enjoy Ryan Lochte explaining how bathrooms are arranged. Bless you, Ryan Lochte, for giving us all a much-needed laugh today. [Raw Story]
