Did Michael Phelps Fart In The Louis Vuitton Bathtub?

Olympic swimmer/world record breaker/real life superhero Michael Phelps now has another title to add to his impressive resume: Louis Vuitton model. The legendary athlete and alleged retiree is starring in the latest round of Louis Vuitton “Core Values” ad campaigns, shot by Annie Leibovitz. One of the photos shows Phelps reclining in a bathtub, wearing goggles and a Speedo, showing off his amazing body and—wait, is that a fart bubble between his legs? OK, OK, so it’s probably just a weird shadow or the outline of a drain or something, but I kind of wish it was a fart, if only because, as my boyfriend put it, “That would make his facial expression so much funnier.” [Fashionista]

“It was weird going from the highest of the high, the biggest point of your life—winning eight gold medals—and then saying, ‘All right, where do I go from here?’ I wasn’t motivated. I did nothing, literally nothing, for a long time. I gained 25 pounds. A friend of mine and I were playing football on the beach in Miami, and somebody got a picture of us and put it all over the place. And he’s like, ‘Bro, you gotta start working out, man. You are fat.’ So I started going through the motions again. I would go back for a week or two and then stop. I’d show up for dry-land practice and then just sneak out the back door so nobody saw me. I was watching ‘Rocky II’ the other day—the one where he’s fighting Apollo for the second time and he’s just going through the motions. It reminded me of how I was … I’m the kind of person who has to go through the learning experiences myself. Somebody could tell me, ‘If you eat this much you’ll be fat,’ and I’d be like, ‘Yeah, okay, let me try it.’ Growing up, my mom taught us to make our own decisions, but also that you have to pay for the consequences of those decisions. I’m thankful for that. I’ll be the first to say I’ve made thousands of mistakes, but I’ve never made the same mistake twice … People make a big deal out of what I eat, but it’s not [12,000 calories a day]. I had a three-egg omelet and three pieces of French toast and coffee this morning. For recovery, I think it’s a big deal to eat within a half-hour after you exercise. Otherwise I just try to put carbs into my system before I swim and then load up on the protein after. I don’t count calories. Whether it’s Sour Patch Kids or Reese’s or a bag of chips, if I feel like eating it, I’m going to eat it.”

Michael Phelps talks about his weight gain and diet in Details. You don’t hear too many men talk food and weight. When they do, I always find it really fascinating. Granted, he is an Olympic athlete, so there is a different kind of attention on his body. It sounds like he was semi-depressed, smoking lots of pot (he kind of references it in the interview) and emotionally eating his share of Sour Patch Kids after Beijing. I don’t know if I would choose Sour Patch Kids, but I get it. I mean, what do you do after you’ve worked your whole life to win Olympic gold medals and then you do? Existential crisis alert. Well, based on this photo spread, I would say he’s back in fighting shape and then some for next month’s games. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
