Vanity Fair’s Annual Young Hollywood Issue Tucks Away Women Of Color, Renders Everyone Else Unrecognizable

Vanity Fair releases its Hollywood issue annually, but this year’s cover is unique in that it is the first of its kind to be shot by famed photog Mario Testino. His technique translates beautifully to the cover, though it’s not immediately apparent that it’s his work. The 11 young actresses featured are dressed impeccably, draped in silky pastels and exuding a sensuous, past-century boudoir air. Ever concerning, though, is the fact that hardly any of the starlets are recognizable. Aside from Rooney Mara, whose angular 1920s bob and sullen features make her easily identifiable, the rest of the girls bear little resemblance to, well, themselves. Keep reading »

“I have never felt truly cherished by a lover. I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man … I say this honestly, and this is my new thing as of the past year: when I fight with someone I’m in a relationship with, I think, ‘What would my fans think if they knew this was happening? How would they feel about my work and about me as a female if they knew I was allowing this to go on?’ And then I get out … I have this effect on people where it starts out good. Then, when I’m in these relationships with people who are also creative, or creative in their own way, what happens is the attraction is initially there and it’s all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me … Perhaps it’s a whose-dick-is-bigger contest. If I go to the piano and write a quick song and play it back, they are angry with how fast and effortless it is. That’s who I am, and I don’t apologize for it. But it’s a hideous place to be in when someone that you love has convinced you that you will never be good enough for anyone. I had a man say to me, ‘You will die alone in a house bigger than you know, with all your money and hit records, and you will die alone.’ … Even though I know it sounds a bit Hallmark, whenever I [was] in that kind of stressful, worthless moment, I would think, ‘I’ll show you.’ … I think what it really is, is that I date creative people. And I think that what intimidates them is not my purse; it’s my mind.”

Lady Gaga opens up about her romantic struggles in the January 2012 issue of Vanity Fair. It sounds like Gaga is going through what I like to call “a dark night of the single soul.” It’s where you realize, much to your dismay, that as a smart, creative, successful woman, finding your match will be epically difficult. This is not just because she’s famous. I would say many single women go through this. And this is not meant to be an insult to men in any way. It’s just that, as Gaga is experiencing, many men are still (perhaps even unconsciously) intimidated by strong women. Especially if they feel they haven’t reached their peak yet. Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Implies That She Should Never Have Gone To Jail

“Unless you’re a killer, I don’t see a reason to stay there. I never hurt anyone but myself.”

Lindsay Lohan looks adorable on the cover of Italian Vanity Fair. Too bad that inside she kind of backtracked on the whole “I accept my punishment and am working hard to move on” stance she’d taken earlier this year. Really, Lindsay, you think only murderers should go to jail? That’s just not how society works. [ONTD]

Gwyneth Paltrow In Nothing But Fishnets And Diamonds

Gwyneth Paltrow looks mighty fine posing in nothing but fishnets and Louis Vuitton jewelry in the new issue of Vanity Fair. She could teach the “America’s Next Top Model” cadre a thing or two about looking innocent and thoroughly sexy at the same time. Smize away, girl. [VF] Keep reading »

Justin Bieber Doesn’t Move Magazines

The editors over at Vanity Fair are scratching their heads now that the sales numbers for their February 2011 issue are in. With Justin Bieber on the cover, they expected it to be a blockbuster issue. But it turned out to be the weakest selling issue of the past 12 years. I repeat, 12 years not months. In fact, an Angelina Jolie issue in 2010 sold almost exactly twice as many copies as Justin’s issue. Apparently, his Teen Vogue and People covers sold pretty poorly, too. [NY Daily News]

So the question has become: is Justin’s star starting to dim? Keep reading »
