She’s at it again! Amanda Bynes has hurled her favorite insult at two more famous faces. Yesterday, she went after both Perez Hilton (who has been writing on his website about her seemingly public meltdown) and Miley Cyrus. I’m not entirely sure why she is pissed at Miley, but I think it has something to do with Amanda finding Liam Hemsworth hot. Really, there seems no rhyme or reason for Amanda calling someone “ugly.” She just can’t think of anything else to say! Here’s a timeline of all those she has hit with the “ugly” stick in 2013…
I was going to start this post about Rihanna by writing, “Stars, they’re just like us! They go to Paris and take tourist-y photos with friends at the Eiffel Tower!” But then it occurred to me that I was not in Paris this weekend, and you probably weren’t either, and more likely you were doing something a little more local, like running errands and catching up on your fave TV shows and maybe, maybe having a cookout with friends. So maybe stars aren’t like us, because jet-setting to Paris for the weekend is a little expensive and we all had to work today, you know? Ugh, sorry, this post turned into kind of a bummer.
Although my waxer tells me BS stories about women who read magazines and talk on the phone while getting their vaginas waxed (who are you!?), I believe most of us find the process appropriately painful. I use numbing spray and Advil and still, I sweat and occasionally tear up. You’ll see no such pansy assery from Rihanna. According to a gossipy employee at Fuzz Wax Bar in Toronto, Rihanna enjoyed her Brazilian waaaayyy too much.The “insider” reports:
“One of our estheticians brought Rihanna the numbing cream but she just laughed. Most women find a Brazilian wax very painful but she just said: ‘No way, I love the pain. It feels good to me.’ … RiRi was escorted to a treatment room with very thin walls and not a scream or squeal was heard. In fact, it sounded like she was enjoying herself. She was singing and humming songs all through the treatment. None of us could stop laughing.”
New urban waxing legend: women who love the pain so much that they sing while getting they’re pubic hair ripped out. Thanks, RiRi! [Dlisted]
So, you guys, this is basically my worst fear EVER: a woman says she got herpes from using a tester tube of lipstick! Starkeema Greenidge of Harlem attended a Rihanna concert earlier this month, where the makeup brand MAC was holding a popup shop and selling Rihanna’s new RiRi Woo lipstick. Like many a woman before her, Greenidge sauntered over to the tester tubes and tried the RiRi Woo lipstick on. An employee even told her to “press her lips together and spread the lipstick around.” And that’s when, according to Greenidge’s lawsuit against MAC, that she got HERPES. Two days after the Rihanna concert, a cold sore appeared on her lip, which her doctor diagnosed as oral herpes. Now she’s suing the company for not using a “fresh or new lipstick tube,” which is “unsanitary and exposing patrons to possible spread of disease.” Well now. Aren’t germs and possible diseases kinda the risk you run by testing communally-used makeup inside a store? MAC is not going to open a fresh lipstick for every single patron because that would be expensive and wasteful. They probably should either disinfect each lipstick or should wipe the top, used part of lipstick off before each new use. But I am a major germophobe and vigilant about wiping lipsticks whenever I test colors. Vigilance! It seems like the best defense of public grossness. Trust no one, Starkeema Greenidge.
