One of the perks of being a celebrity is that no matter what you want to do and where you want to go, there is someone willing to drive you in the privacy of an air-conditioned car, without any pesky commoners invading your personal, famous bubble. That is why it is kind of awesome when a celebrity is spotted riding public transportation. How normal! For instance, Jay-Z hopped the R train from his digs in Manhattan’s posh Tribeca ‘hood to Brooklyn this weekend for his last concert at the new Barclays Center. (Certain beyotches named Amelia were in the audience. Madly jealous. Sore subject.) Of course Jay was accompanied by plainclothes cops and his own security team. It’s not like he rides the subway like us normal folks. [MissInfo.tv]
In addition to being better for the environment, public transportation is often more efficient and quicker than fighting traffic. Plus, it’s just kind cool to see celebs “out in the wild,” clutching filthy subway poles and giving the stink eye to rude multi-seat hoggers with the rest of us. Here are a bunch more celebs spotted on public transpo!
On this week’s episode of “What We Missed,” The Frisky staff obsesses over the new TLC show “Extreme Cheapskate,” gets all science-y and shit over the story of a woman who grew a new ear on her forearm, feels sorry for Kim Kardashian (because Kanye West is kind of a bad boyfriend), and laughs at an awesome parody of the “Women Who Rock” trope. Check it out above and weigh in on these stories in the comments!
Got your costume all picked out, but still don’t have any fun Halloween party plans? How about a trip to New York City to hang with Kim Kardashian? One winner (and a guest) will win a trip to the Big Apple for Midori’s Halloween party– and it could be you! (Check out Kim at last year’s Halloween soiree, above.) Enter the contest here before October 15 and, if you’re picked, plan to paint NYC green with Midori on October 27th (the night of the event). Good luck! [Party With Midori]
One summer trend that’s definitely sticking around for fall (and hopefully forever?!) is the stylish high-top sneaker. Embellished with studs, straps, sequins, or a hidden wedge, a pair of edgy kicks can pump up the volume of any outfit. Looking for a little inspiration for how to rock your own sneakers? We found 15 celebs–from Kristen Stewart to Rihanna to Amy Poehler–strutting their stuff in rad high tops. Click through to check out all the different ways they styled ‘em!
Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian hosted Midori’s Makeover Parlour event at Fred Segal in LA and showed up in this gorgeous emerald green velvet body-con dress by Gucci (clearly a nod to the drink’s hue). After all the black and white she’s been wearing, I love seeing Kim in a little color. What do you think of the look? Check out more photos in this gallery…
Are you in the mood to buy some makeup? How about some makeup sold by shapeshifting aliens bearing a vague but bizarre resemblance to the Kardashian sisters? Well, now you can! Or soon, I guess. But seriously, they usually at least do a pretty good approximation of humans. Not this time, my friends. Not this time. [Celebuzz]
