Just As I Said THREE YEARS Ago, Ryan Gosling Doesn’t Want To Be People‘s Sexiest Man Alive

Ryan gosling

Today in “Breaking Celebrity News That I Broke Three Damn Years Ago,” The Wrap is reporting that Ryan Gosling has been approached by People magazine multiple times and offered their annual “Sexiest Man Alive” title, but that he’s had his reps turn it — and the associated magazine cover shoot — down. “The consensus was he’s too serious for it, too artsy,” a source told The Wrap.

I TOLD YOU SO. Keep reading »

Chris Hemsworth Has Been Named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, Nation Asks, “Is That The One Who Dated Miley?”

Chris Hemsworth Has Been Named <i>People</i>'s Sexiest Man Alive, Nation Asks, "Is That The One Who Dated Miley?"

Nope, that’s Liam you’re thinking of. He dated Miley and his movie, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ opens this weekend. But he didn’t win. His older brother Chris, also Australian and, yes, smoking hot, is People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, beating out his younger bro, as well as likely candidates Chris Pratt, Charlie Hunnam and the Susan Lucci of this particular award, Ryan Gosling. Chris, 31, is the star of “Thor” (uh, who actually saw “Thor”?), is married to Elsa Patacky and is a father of three. Though I am relatively meh on his winning this coveted title, I would not kick him out of bed for eating crackers. And hey, he’s sure an improvement over last year’s winner, Adam Levine. So, congrats! [People]

Saturday evening on her Instagram profile, R&B singer Ciara debuted a new hairstyle: waist-skimming loc extensions. The style, a temporary version of the loc-ed hair many Black people of all genders sport, sparked discussion both among fans and style outlets.

One in particular, People magazine’s StyleWatch section, posted a story Tuesday about Ciara’s newest mane and stirred a dialogue about far more than trendy summer hair colors. Associate Style Editor Brittany Talarico noted that Ciara is set to wed fiancé Future in a “very elegant affair,” then said immediately afterward in parentheses that the wedding was “another reason [People thinks] she’ll ditch the dreads.”

While the phrase has since been removed, the undertones of Talarico’s words were not lost on some Black readers. YouTube comedienne, natural hair guru and Upworthy curator Franchesca Ramsey pointed out People’s words on her blog shortly after the article was posted. A Black woman with dreadlocks herself, Ramsey noted that the article suggests Ciara could not possibly want to keep her loc extensions for an “elegant” wedding—meaning the locs extensions themselves cannot be elegant.

People Claims They Won’t Post Paparazzi Photos Of Celebs’ Kids Except When They Feel Like It, Which Is Probably Always

People Claims They Won't Post Paparazzi Photos Of Celebs' Kids Except When They Feel Like It, Which Is Probably Always

Famous parents are finally saying enough is enough when it comes to creepy paparazzi photos of their kids, and People has responded to the request for a change of policy with what is seemingly the most wishy-washy, off-target commentary they could come up with.

The magazine has announced that they will only publish photos of celebrity kids that their parents, in theory, agree to, such as at red carpet events. They claim they will no longer be using paparazzi photos of children, except for occasional “rare exceptions” (read: whenever they feel like it).

Is this response really any better than the magazine just ignoring the issue altogether and shamelessly continuing to fill their pages with Suri Cruise pictures like they always have? Keep reading »

Adam Levine Declared People‘s Sexiest Man Alive

So America’s hottest pretty boy douche, Adam Levine, has been anointed the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. Though I would totally hit it — however, I would prefer that Blake Shelton also be in the room — I really think People could have done better. As a friend put it on Twitter, “I’ve seen compost piles that are sexier than Adam Levine.” Everyone should know by now that the title of this honor should really be People‘s “Sexiest Man Alive (Who Would Agree To Do A Cover Shoot For The Magazine And Isn’t Embarrassed By All This Award Represents)” — why do you think Ryan Gosling’s never won? Because he would never accept. But think of how many others must have passed for People to finally have arrived at Adam. I’m guessing Idris Elba, Justin Timberlake, the Hemsworth brothers, Chris Pine all said no. Richard Simmons, Bruce Jenner, Scott Disick, Harry Styles … they must have said no too. So now we have Adam. The Sexiest Man Alive. Congrats dude! [People] Keep reading »
