Today is Megan Fox media blackout day, so we aren’t going to talk about her at all. Okay, stopping now. But what we do wanna talk about is how the dude websites that made this anti-Megan (err, have to stop talking about her) pact are replacing her with “Golden Girl” Betty White. We are super stoked about this, because Betty is pretty amazing. After the jump, a few reasons why Betty White is the coolest old lady around. Besides my grandma, of course. [Asylum] Keep reading »
Next week, get ready for a day off. Well, not actually a day-off day off, but a day off from incessant coverage of Megan Fox. On August 4th, manly websites across the blogosphere will stop giving the “Transformers” starlet so much attention. Doug Sheckler from 205th.com explains, “She needs to do more to earn our undying praise and affection. For instance, she hasn’t even returned any of my calls this year asking for a date. What’s up with that?”
Seriously, Megan, what is up with that? Can you believe that in the past year alone, her face was plastered to the front of Esquire, Empire, Maxim, GQ, Entertainment Weekly and Elle? If that’s not reason enough to boycott her, check out this video at Asylum on why blogs are choosing to put stories about the toe-thumbed actress on hold. [NY Daily News]
As for the Frisky, we’re totally psyched about this media blackout movement against Fox. In fact, there are a few other “celebrities” we think are deserving of blackout days. Mark your calendars. Keep reading »
Ladies, gentlemen: “Transformers” is not a movie about acting.
I know! It came as a surprise to me, too: I had always believed that “Transformers” aspired to be a sensitive exploration of the human psyche. As it turns out, however, it’s a movie about giant robots fighting each other.
So, no: “Transformers” is many things, but it is not a movie about acting. However, when its star Megan Fox said as much in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, it set off a firestorm of controversy, most of which can be summed up in the title of a post on the blog Zelda Lily (“Feminism in a Bra”): “Megan Fox Is An Ungrateful Bitch.” Keep reading »
“Is she aiding in Africa or sitting in on U.N. conferences? Donating herself to something bigger than Hollywood? I’m not familiar with her work, is she an Oscar contender?”
— Angelina Jolie, reportedly in Life & Style, but who really knows

In a shockingly bad career move (in our humble opinion, at least), Megan Fox has announced she’s turned down an offer to star opposite Daniel Craig in the next Bond film. Really!? The chance to join the prestigious list of female A-listers with the looks and brains to challenge and roll with Bond? (We’ll have to exclude Denise Richards from that list though.) Apparently, she’s just not impressed by the notion and feels the role wouldn’t really add anything to her career. Huh.

Megan Fox hates watching herself in movies so much that before she saw “Transformers 2″ she had to drink champagne, and fast. But she isn’t alone. A lot of celebs can’t stand to see themselves on the big screen. Interestingly, the celebs who tend to shield their eyes are the ones that we go ga-ga for. Check out the hotties who don’t see their own movies, after the jump. Keep reading »
Several tabloids this week did Michael Jackson tribute issues, which is to be expected. But there’s so much other trashy celebrity drama that we need to catch up on! We’ve practically forgotten all about Jon and whatsherface or Rihanna and so-and-so. I never thought I’d say this, but I kinda need more diverse hubbub in my life (no offense MJ), so thank goodness this week hit a few of our favorite drama mongers. Keep reading »
Screenwriter Diablo Cody’s latest endeavor, following “Juno,” is a decidedly more bloody affair. The horror flick, “Jennifer’s Body,” stars Megan Fox (groan), a guyliner-wearing Adam Brody (swoon!), and a typically wholesome Amanda Seyfried, and tells to story of a murderous high school hottie. Jennifer apparently has a thing for killing dudes, so I suppose there’s some sort of a girl power message going on. I’m a Megan Fox hater, but even I might put aside my distaste and see this flick — it looks hilariously awesome. NSFW (language issues) trailer, after the jump! Keep reading »
While we regular women find it hard to keep up with Megan Fox and her hotness, try being her “Transformers” stunt double. Vanity Fair sat down with danger woman Stacey Carino, who was a 5th grade science teacher. After surviving a room full of preteens and jumping between rooftops to avoid explosions, Ms. Carino knows a thing or two about stayin’ in shape. She revealed her secret for getting the perfect body: mountain biking. Stacey swears, “It keeps you strong without looking strong. For stunt girls, you have to have that. You have to be fit without looking fit.”
Note to self: find new, non-metaphorical, mountain to climb and do it with a bike. Then, I will look like Megan Fox. And then, I will pop a wheelie. [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
