Katy Perry Classes It Up For Vanity Fair

Katy Perry posed for Annie Liebovitz on the June cover of Vanity Fair and I must admit I’m not used to seeing her in such a “normal” look. Sedate makeup? (For her.) Check. Sedate outfit? (For her.)

Vanity Fair’s 2010 “New Establishment” Is A List Of (Mostly) Rich White Guys

I don’t know how much stock I take in Vanity Fair’s lists of the most powerful and influential people.

Lady Gaga Strikes A Naked Pose On The Cover Of Vanity Fair

Forget no pants! On the cover of the September issue of Vanity Fair, Lady Gaga has forgotten all her clothes altogether. (I think?)

Quotable: Angelina Jolie Talks Future Sex Scenes With Brad

“I’d love to [co-star with Brad again]. We’ve talked about it. We’d have to figure out who’s going to watch the kids, but it’s really about finding the right thing, because we’ve looked.
