“I think it’s important to look good and feel good about yourself, but I got both ways with it. I feel it’s cruel how the world puts so much emphasis on our looks. I was just watching ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ and I see Kim and what she went through when she was pregnant — the tabloids were so mean to her because she was big. At one point on the show she was upset and said something like, ‘I would be lying if I said that the criticism from the paparazzi while I’ve been pregnant hasn’t taken a toll on me.’ And I was like, ‘Bless your heart,’ because I remember that time. First of all you are already emotional and then the paparazzi are taking pictures of you pregnant. That should be the time [in you life] when your body is the most treasured. I loved being pregnant for so many reasons, not to mention the sex is awesome then. But in this business you make a deal with the devil. I’ve learned you kind of have to go with it. What I do calls for me to look good. People expect that. I kind of take it as my job.”
Britney Spears isn’t known for thoughtful commentary on, well, anything, so I was pleasantly surprised to read her criticism of the entertainment industry in the latest issue of InStyle. I would have expected Brit to say something more like “I LOOOOOVE doing 6,000 crunches a day!” But she shows a lot of empathy here for the vicious beauty and weight pressures faced by female celebs. It is, of course, a subject she knows all too well. Even if I understand what women like Britney and Kim get out of their “deal with the devil,” it’s still extremely sad this deal has to exist.

Kim Kardashian is stepping up her Instagram photography game in 2014 with some symbolism. In this photo posted yesterday, captioned, “It was an amazing year!!!,” one can see that Kim is referring to two recent developments of the past year: her baby and her engagement to Kanye West. She probably didn’t mean to draw comparisons between the size of her engagement ring and the size of her human child’s fist, but then again, she probably did. Disappointingly, it looks like Kim was unable to find a fitting symbol for her divorce from Kris Humphries, which also just happened in 2013. Maybe North will grow up to be a basketball player. Wouldn’t that be something?
I know you didn’t expect Kim Kardashian to ski in some boring ass Northface puffer. Please. Isn’t it a bad idea, though, for fur to get wet? Like, if Kim takes a tumble, won’t the wet snow make her fur smell like a wet dog? I’ve never smelled real wet fur, so I don’t know. Someone rich, please explain. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
But is it ugly? Yesterday, Kim and Kanye were photographed doing a little post-holiday shopping, with Kim carrying her Christmas gift from Kanye on her arm. She posted a close-up photo of the classic Hermes Birkin bag to Instagram, which was apparently hand-painted by the artist George Condo. (Condo worked with Yeezy on the visuals for his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy back in 2010.) The painting depicts three monster-faced people having sex with a nude woman. A one of a kind, very special gift indeed … get a closer look after the jump and then discuss! [Photo: Splash News] Keep reading »
As I mentioned in Quickies, the Kardashians had a big ol’ Christmas party, complete with a photo booth that made everyone look like they were made out of wax. At first when I saw this pic of Kim and Kanye, I was like, “Well, they forgot one very important thing — blotting papers.” But upon further inspection, I’ve concluded that patch of shine between Kanye’s eyebrows is not a Christmas tree, but the pyramid representing the Illuminati. Stare at it too long, and you’re under its spell. So be careful.
