Step back, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. There’s a new vocalist with a penchant for over-the-top fashions on the scene. Check out British songstress VV Brown‘s latest video for “Game Over.” Her outfits are as unique as her sound, which she describes as “musical mashed potatoes.” A 5’11″ sometimes model, Brown’s video looks range from spike-shouldered gladiator to hooved pony girl. She even wears a dress with a picture of herself on it. Myself, I’m partial to the Union Jack underpants. Keep reading »
Since taking yourself too seriously should be a crime, I truly appreciate it when people of note take to Funny or Die to completely decimate themselves in mock online dating profiles. This Hailey Glassman Match.com vid seems particularly brave. “I’m looking for someone who’s half Asian, kind of chubs, with hair plugs. Someone who likes Ed Hardy thongs and white chicks who wear their trucker hats to the side,” she says. “About me—I like to party. Get wasted, take cute photos with guns. I can burp the alphabet. I dunno, people say I’d be a great stepmother to eight kids.” But is it just me, or did those burps totally turn your stomach? Keep reading »
First Aubrey O’Day butchered our favorite New Order song, “Bizarre Love Triangle.” Now, she’s defending dictators and mass murderers. For some reason, she appeared on Sean Hannity’s show yesterday, and you won’t even believe what she had to say about Fidel Castro and Adolf Hitler. According to her, they’re both brilliant? Yeah, she never was the sharpest knife in the drawer. Keep reading »
Madonna’s much-anticipated music video for her song “Celebration” is out today and it features her undressing and making out with real-life boy toy Jesus Luz. The dancing boys in the video are pretty fly and Madonna is definitely still freaky-deaky herself. I could have done without the millions of Madge crotch shots, but I’m happy Madonna is sticking to what she’s good at — bangin’ club jams. Keep reading »
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence say they support a second “Bad Boys” sequel but won’t make anything official until they’ve read a script. [Celebitchy] — Please, don’t do that. My ears, eyes, and mind can’t take another craptastic, shoot ‘em up movie.
Kelly Preston was supposed to speak at the annual Women’s Conference, which would have been the first time she addressed the death of her son, Jett Travolta, publicly, but she said in a statement that it was too soon and she’s still in the process of healing. [PopEater]
Lily Allen told Elle UK that men are afraid to date her because their worst traits might end up in a song—like the guy whose crappy bedroom skills are immortalized in the song “Not Fair.” Ah, sucks to be him! “I wish I’d never written ‘Not Fair,’” Allen said. “You know, the thought honestly—really, honestly—never even occurred to me that it would scare men. I thought it might empower women. I thought women would go: ‘Oh God, yes, at last somebody is saying it.’ I didn’t think it would put me in a position where guys would be like, ‘Whoa, no, I’m not sleeping with you in case you write something about it!’” [Showbiz Spy]
Police say someone threw a bomb at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Lincoln, NE, yesterday but missed the building. Instead, the Molotov cocktail hit and burned the pavement. The incident occurred after two days of protests at a clinic in Bellevue, NE, which is about 50 miles away from Lincoln. [Action 3 News]
A Republican candidate for governor in Virginia, Robert McDonnell, wrote in his master’s thesis two decades ago that working women and feminists are “detrimental” to the family and expressed scorn for “co-habitators, homosexuals and fornicators.” He also called the 1972 Supreme Court decision which legalized the use of birth control by unmarried couples “illogical.” On Saturday, McDonnell said his views have changed as he got older. [Washington Post]—As an unmarried, illogical fornicator, I’m still skeptical.
This week’s television forecast is … partly cloudy. There’s the season premiere of “Greek,” the HBO beauty-obsession doc “Youth Knows No Pain,” more drama with the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (duh), and a reprisal of “Glee,” complete with cast and crew commentary. But while there’s lots going on, we’re all kind of looking forward to next week, which will be a veritable television-gasm. So make sure to check back so you don’t miss the biggest week of premieres all year.
At a Victoria’s Secret “Heavenly Enchanted” perfume launch this weekend, Victoria’s Secret model and girlfriend of Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, was temporarily blinded when former “Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars” cast member Melissa Rycroft “accidentally” sprayed perfume in her face. Apparently Melissa felt really bad for handicapping the Australian model. [NY Post]
It’s really hard not to laugh when bad things happen to beautiful people. (Do you think it’s funny when models fall on the runway?) Luckily, YouTube users have made a sport of compiling clips of fashion disasters. Hopefully, Miranda is doing better. But in the meantime, we’ve found some other OMG model moments. Keep reading »
This morning, Rumer Willis stopped by the fourth hour of “Today” — otherwise known as the hour that Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee get drunk and talk to “stars” that aren’t famous enough to be on the show during the first three hours when more than just bloggers and unemployed people watch. Anyway, it seems someone gave Rumer a job — a role in a horror movie called “Sorority Row” (at first I thought it was called “Sorority, No,” which would have been a more appropriate title) and she was on the show this morning to promote it (sporting a pretty weave, I might add). From the looks of the trailer, I’m guessing the flick is going to go straight to DVD, and I can’t imagine anyone was shocked when Rumor admitted she’s never had any formal acting training. Still, Kathie Lee seems sure this is all the beginning of a “terrific career.” And if things don’t take off with the acting, the self-described “Betty Crocker” can always go into the pie-baking business. So, is anyone going to watch her movie? Keep reading »
Earlier this month Chris Brown taped an interview with Larry King that’s set to air this Wednesday. In an exclusive preview, Brown says he “doesn’t remember” hitting Rihanna, that’s not who “I pride myself on being,” and that he’s “in shock.” Uh-huh. Keep reading »
