Do you think Ashley Benson is a bitch?

ashley benson

If you answered yes to that question, you’re not alone, apparently. If you answered, “Who?” to that question, then you’re only slightly better off than me, who knows she was in that Spring Breakers travesty and is also on Pretty Little Liars, but it sorta ends there. But I digress. We’re here to talk about Ashley Benson‘s bitchiness, and apparently she’s got it in spades – at least according to… anyone who meets her.

From Wonderland:

“Weirdly, I’m shy,” she says. “When people first meet me, they always think that I’m a bitch. I always get called that. Always. Because I don’t talk. I get really nervous in public situations, but once you get to know me, I’m so outgoing, I’m so loud and bombastic. I have the biggest mouth. But [at first] I’m very closed off. I hold in emotions. I don’t like to be vulnerable, ever. But when you’re acting, you get to explore those feelings and those emotions and those moments. Acting is so fun. I love memorising lines and I love doing scenes.”

She sighs. “If I could work and not have anyone know who I am – I know it’s not possible – that would be my goal.”

Don’t you love when people pull the “I’m just here for the art!” lark? Ya, okay. I mean, whatever – maybe she is just a true artiste and fame gets in the way, but somehow I don’t buy it.

Anyhoo, here are some more pics of Ashley looking like a bitch moody and very fashionable from the shoot.

Can anyone tell me if Pretty Little Liars is worth binge watching? I just finished the third season of House of Cards and I’m desperate.

Vince Vaughn and Dave Franco create hilarious stock photos

unfinished business

Vince Vaughn and Dave Franco are about to release a new movie called Unfinished Business, and to promote the film, they joined up with some of the rest of the cast (and Getty Images) to create a hilarious set of stock photos that we’re all free to use however we’d like!

I’m not sure what’s most hilarious about this. Vince Vaughn’s hairpiece, the fact that he seems superimposed into all the images like he wasn’t really there to begin with, or the whole idea for this thing. I guess it’s all pretty great. Getty is licensing these for editorial use over the next three weeks, so let your heart run free!

unfinished business

More images below, but here’s a synopsis of the movie, if that’s your thing:

“What began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every imaginable—and unimaginable—way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit.”

Huh. It’s got potential but it could go either way, really.

Kylie Jenner on how she’s changed: ‘I gained 15 pounds’

kylie jenner

Kylie Jenner looks pretty much nothing like she looked a mere 9 months or so ago. In fact, now she’s just a carbon copy of big sister Kim with the possible butt implants to match. But if you were to ask Kylie how she’s changed during this past year, well, she’s only put on a little bit of weight.

She shared the below photo on Instagram this week with the caption “throwback to when I was 15 pounds skinnier & had a little blonde goin on”. Now, let’s all look at this photo and then back at the photo above. More has changed than her weight (which, btw, I think she looks better for now).

Cameron Diaz wants you to eat a piece of cake

cameron diaz

Cameron Diaz looks great – she’s fit, she seems healthy (you can’t tell this by looking at a person, but given the lifestyle she advocates, it points in that direction) and she’s happy to share her advice with the rest of us in a new interview with Cosmopolitan UK. Cameron’s approach to health and wellness is pretty simple: everything in moderation, basically. Oh, and make sure you exercise.

On exercise:

“You have to just do it. Once you commit and really put in the effort, your body goes, ‘Oh, it’s not OK to be without this.’ People say, ‘My body rejects exercise.’ No, it doesn’t.  Your mind rejects exercise.”

On diet:

“Wellbeing is an equation. Remember, you don’t have to have the whole cake, you can have a piece. Don’t deprive yourself. Have fun. Just be self-aware. If your equation is 80% good, 20% bad most of the time, then a little movement toward the centre isn’t going to affect you much,” she says.

On social media:

“I think social media is a crazy-ass experiment on society. The way people use it to get validation from abunch of strangers is dangerous. What’s the point?”

True! To… well, all of the above? I feel like it’s sorta common sense to be like, “Hey, move your body sometimes instead of being a couch potato, and maybe don’t gorge yourself on an entire cake!” Also, social media is totally bizarre and people definitely get addicted to it. I’m addicted to Instagram but I’m really only there for dog pictures and food pictures, so…

Madonna has some advice for Kanye West

madonna rolling stone

If anyone has been around the musical block a few times, it’s Madonna. While lately she’s lost it a bit, you can’t deny her legendary status and the fact that she kinda knows what she’s talking about in a lot of ways. To that end, she’s got some advice for Kanye West, with whom she’s worked a bit in the studio (when she could actually get him to pay attention to anything) which all boils down to the fact that he needs to chill the hell out.

From Rolling Stone:

“Don’t go to awards shows looking for justice,” she says in interviews for Rolling Stone‘s new cover story. “That’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Just go and have fun. I never got too engaged with who wins awards or not, because I don’t honestly think it’s that important. So that part of him I can’t relate to. Like, what’s the point of fighting for somebody to … like, ‘This person should have got it?’… I think sometimes he takes things too seriously.”

She also offered her thoughts on West as a creative force. “It’s really hard to describe Kanye in one sentence, so I may have to use several,” she says. “He’s a brilliant madman. He can’t help himself. Like, he doesn’t have the same filters other people have. He has to blurt things out – he’s always saying inappropriate stuff. But he also has brilliant ideas, if you can get him to pay attention long enough, working with him in the studio. He would come and go. He would drive me bonkers, because he’s got so many things going on in his life. And this seemed to be the theme of my record, working with people who can’t get off their phone, can’t stop tweeting, can’t focus and finish a song. It drove me crazy. But when they did pay attention, it was brilliant. I was, like, running around with a butterfly net. But I feel like the music business needs him, because everyone’s become so politically correct, so safe. I don’t always agree with the things he says or does – I don’t always like his music, even. But he’s a beautiful mess. I love him.”

Pot calling the kettle black there about the saying inappropriate shit, isn’t it, Madonna? Also, it actually kinda sounds like she doesn’t really like Kanye at all. He’s an ADD-ridden madman who takes himself too seriously and has no filter. Wow, he sure sounds like a barrel of laughs.

Iggy Azalea seriously needs to shut up

iggy azalea

Iggy Azalea can’t seem to go very long without flapping her gums about some bullshit she should really stay quiet about. Her latest nonsense comes courtesy of a Power 106 interview in which so much fuckery spills out of her mouth, I don’t even know where to begin. I’ll just provide the highlights.

On how she has been “unfairly accused” of appropriating culture, but not Eminem:
“I found it to be kind of ironic. It was because I’m white, therefore I’m appropriating culture. But then Eminem won it – who’s white and won it many times – and they didn’t seem to say anything about that.”

Iggy claims her anti-Asian, anti-black, anti-Mexican tweets are photoshopped & fake:
“Having to deal with people photoshopping things that I say, and then other people really thinking that they’re true. Like ‘n-word this’ or ‘I hate every race’. Tweet about me hating asian people, black people – I hate everyone, apparently. That annoyed me. Nobody wants to be called a racist…Nobody wants to feel like they’re Hitler. That was weak. That was lame.”

On her haters:
“You just want an excuse to hate me. Don’t try to say that I’m a racist! …If I did have a penis, I’d stick it at the back of your throat.”

On how she would have rejected the Grammy if she won:
“I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, ‘Fuck this! I don’t want it! Take it! Get away from me!’. I’m glad I didn’t win because people already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more.”

Yeah, OKAY. I’m so sure Iggy Azalea would have refused the Grammy award. HAHAHAHA!! That’s rich. Also rich? The fact that she doesn’t get that Eminem doesn’t get as much shit as her because he actually RESPECTS the culture he’s part of (and, you know, he’s talented, but that’s neither here nor there). Finally, I don’t really need an excuse to hate Iggy. She makes it too easy all on her own.

If you have a high tolerance for bullshit, you can watch the whole interview here:

Jared Leto is giving us major 1994 vibes

jared leto

Jared Leto is some kind of miraculous creature who hasn’t aged since 1994. Could it be plastic surgery? Sure, but somehow I doubt it. He hasn’t changed at all, besides growing his hair long and joining a rock band and… well, no, he hasn’t changed. UNTIL NOW.

Today, Jordan Catalano changed lives everywhere when he decided to cut off his hair and SERIOUSLY return to 1994. Seriously – put the below photo next to one from then and see if you can tell the difference.

…#gone!

Just like old times, eh? I wonder what Lupita thinks.
