Nick Jonas Is Loving His Post Purity Ring Sex Life

“Sex is such an important part of a healthy life, in the sense that it’s such an intrinsic part of who you are. When your sex life is not healthy, you resort to other things as an outlet.”

Nick Jonas, former purity ring enthusiast and talented crotch grabber, is presumably enjoying all the sexytime he wants these days. He “came out” about taking off the ring in September, citing a change in his relationship to his religion, and this quote from the December issue of Attitude magazine has left me assuming he’s a practicing a very, ahem, healthy sex life in his free time. I mean, all that underwear modeling experience couldn’t just go to waste in the bedroom, right? [E!] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Keira Knightley Poses Topless And Unretouched In Interview Magazine

“I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters. That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said: ‘OK, I’m fine doing the topless shot so long as you don’t make them any bigger or retouch.’ Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are. … I think women’s bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame. Our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape.”

Keira Knightley was tired of retouchers Photoshopping her out of the Itty-Bitty Tittie Committee over the years, so when Interview magazine asked her to pose topless, she had one very firm request, she told The Times: No. Changing. Anything. The result isn’t particularly shocking — as a slender woman, she hasn’t had to deal with her overall body shape being altered — but it’s definitely refreshing to see she’s got one breast that’s slightly bigger than the other and little armpit chub, just like me. See the NSFW version (NIPPLESSSS) after the jump! [The Times via TIME; Interview] Keep reading »

Sophia Loren Finally Explains Why She Gave Jayne Mansfield Such Epic Side-Eye

“She came right for my table. She knew everyone was watching. She sat down. And now, she was barely… Listen. Look at the picture. Where are my eyes? I’m staring at her nipples because I am afraid they are about to come onto my plate. In my face you can see the fear. I’m so frightened that everything in her dress is going to blow—BOOM!—and spill all over the table.”

Surely you’ve seen this infamous photo before, of Sophia Loren giving fellow Hollywood actress and glamazon Jayne Mansfield epic side-eye. While I’m sure many have theorized about all the possible reasons for Sophia to be shading Jayne — did she steal her man? claim the designer gown Sophia wanted to wear? steal her parking space?! — Loren told Entertainment Weekly that the truth is actually pretty ridiculous. She was just keeping her eyes peeled for a massive wardrobe malfunction! Apparently, the photo was taken at a party that Paramount had thrown for Loren and Mansfield, who passed away in 1967, was the last to show up. “For me, that was when it got amazing,” she told EW. Indeed. [Entertainment Weekly]

Eva Longoria Talks Workplace Sexism

“People tend to put women in boxes: She’s sexy, she’s ambitious, she’s smart, she’s a mom … but women are complex, and we are always underestimated. Women are all of those things at the same time…There’s a conversation to be had on stages like this or world stages, about gender rules and women’s identity. How can we be all those things? Sheryl Sandberg’s book talks about those things – ‘Women can have it all!’ – and I’ve been told that, but women can’t have it all at the same time…I think traditionally, the sexism in these fields is still prevalent. I did my masters thesis specifically on Latino women in STEM fields, and I found a lot of them were discouraged even to this day from going into these fields. I want to challenge all the women here today to become mentors to young women, and show them the way, and show them your path. Because without mentors, the system does not work.”

The ever wise Eva Longoria is at the Dublin Web Summit conference this week, where she’s been speaking about her philanthropic endeavors, or as she calls it, philanthro-preneurship. She was interviewed by Jemima Khan and expressed her concern for young women succeeding in tech careers. Longoria’s on a mission to open up STEM fields to more talented women, and encourages all of us ladies to help each other get there. The actress also discussed Hollywood’s ageist attitude toward female stars. Longoria feels that one of the biggest reasons for the film biz’s mistreatment of actresses is the lack of women working behind the camera to produce and write and direct (and I happen to agree with her), and she’s involved herself in directing and producing lately to help combat that. It’s such a pleasant surprise to see a celeb using their influence and wealth for good! [Guardian UK] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Taylor Swift: Criticizing Her For Writing About Exes Is Sexist

“My first album came out when I was 16, so I would write about my life as I saw it, as I felt it. And then what happens is as you get more successful, which you’re lucky if that happens, you have more and more people paying attention to what you’re doing and you’ve been doing it the same way your entire career as a songwriter, but all of a sudden the perspective has changed. They use kind of you writing songs about your life as a way to play detective. And for me, I have a really strict personal policy that I never name names, so anybody saying that a song is about a specific person is purely speculating….The most important thing for me is maintaining artistic integrity which means as a songwriter I still continue to write about my life…you’re going to have people who are gonna say, ‘Oh you know, like she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends,’ and I think, frankly, that’s just a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love life and no one raises a red flag there.”

Taylor Swift told Australian radio station 2DayFM how she really feels about all the flack she gets for writing so many songs about ex-boyfriends, and, well, she makes a great point. [Celebuzz] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Jillian Michaels Wishes She’d Been Born Straight

“I’ve been approached about having mutual approval over everything to do a reality show. It’s interesting because we can talk about parenting, relationships, health—all the things that are important to me. But then I think, What if I open up and people attack us just because we’re a gay family? It scares the hell out of me….I don’t know that I am [comfortable talking openly about being gay] now, to be honest with you. The gay thing has always been hard for me. When Heidi and I are out and somebody older asks, ‘Are you sisters?’ I say, ‘We’re friends.’ I guess it comes from thinking that they will be shocked or disturbed. Look, I wish I had some strapping football player husband. It would be such a dream to be ‘normal’ like that, but I’m just not.”

Fitness guru Jillian Michaels came out as bisexual in 2011 and struggles with discrimination just like anyone else. She told Health magazine about the fears that she and her partner Heidi Rhoades face simply for being who they are and their desire to fit in. The couple has two kids together. It’ll be a happy day when her family is considered just as “normal” as any other — or better yet, when society’s obsession with normalcy fades away altogether. Keep reading »
