Cameron Diaz is fucking nutso. Like, we’re all on the same page with that, right? She’s an absolute basketcase and I love it, but I also know now to take homegirl seriously. This is the person who’s “proud” of Gwyneth Paltrow for cheating and getting divorced and who thinks of her vagina as a present to be opened. Just live in her chaos, man.
That’s why it’s totally in tune with her whole… whatever it is she’s got going on that she has now proclaimed that all women have been sexually attracted to each other at one time or another and basically we’re all a bunch of secret lesbians. Some of us not so secret, wink wink.
“I love women – and I don’t believe in female jealousy. I don’t feel like it’s a good feeling to have. My parents always told me that whatever someone else had – in all areas – it wasn’t mine to be entitled to. That all I can do is the best that I can do – and that what’s most important is whether I can do better at what I’m doing.” She told us.
But has she ever been attracted to a woman? “I think women are beautiful – absolutely beautiful. And I think that all women have been sexually attracted to another woman at some point. It’s natural to have a connectivity and an appreciation for the beauty of other women.”
LOL, okay. I mean, look – I certainly think there are VERY few people that are “100%” straight or gay or any one thing. Sexuality is fluid, blah blah blah. However, I don’t know that this is true. I’m obviously not the one to ask, so go on ladies, speak up. Have you ever been sexual attracted to your own kind? I can certainly see why you would be. Ladies are hot!

Cameron Diaz does NOT seem like friendship material for high strung Gwyneth Paltrow, but apparently they’re pretty close. While many would honour the sacred bonds of friendship by keeping their trap shut when it comes to publicly commenting on one another’s personal life choices, it seems Cameron decided to take the opposite route and offer her thoughts on Gwyneth’s split from husband Chris Martin.
“I think it’s actually a very elevated and conscious [decision] and realized statement — when people like Chris and Gwyneth who really worked hard to be friends and keep the things that are good and work in their relationship, which is being friends and being parents.”
“People go separate ways in other aspects of their life and I think it’s really brave of them to phrase it that way. Leaving as a couple and deciding to stay together as parents and as friends — I think it’s beautiful. I’m so proud of them.”
Cameron actually really cracks me up – this is the same person who thinks you can’t have a relationship without being cheated on or cheating yourself, so of course she’s supportive of this bullshit. She thinks she’s on a whole other plane of human understanding, which… LOL.
As for Gwyn & Chris’s divorce being an “elevated” decision, maybe so. Or maybe they simply couldn’t stand each other anymore and it was literally the only option. People get divorced ALL the time, and there’s no higher level thinking involved. Shit just doesn’t work out sometimes… but I bet Gwyneth subscribes to Cameron’s mode of thinking, anyway – I mean, don’t forget, they called their split announcement “conscious uncoupling”. What kinda bullshit?

Cameron Diaz is the worst thing to happen to the legacy that is 1982′s Annie, but here we are with her as Miss Hannigan. Luckily, we have the adorably talented Quvenzhané Wallis to even things out a bit, and Jamie Foxx (who can go either way – laughably awful or really talented).
I’m not sure what to make of the new Annie trailer, to be honest. Did this movie need to be remade? Most certainly not, but we’ve got it and we’ll have to learn to live with it. I don’t know how I feel about the modernization of it, but it is great to see a black girl in the lead with a black Daddy Warbucks – little girls especially can use any chance they can get to see themselves reflected in the media, so on that point alone, I kinda have to support it.
What do you think of the trailer? Would you see the Annie remake? It’ll be out on December 19th in the US, if so.

Cameron Diaz recently released The Body Book, in which she encouraged women not to permanently remove the hair on their vaginas as it’s there for a reason and helps men feel like they’re opening a present when they go down on you or something. It was all fine and well, though some people – like myself – wondered why she didn’t just say that her personal preference is for a ’70s style bush, but all women should feel empowered enough to do with their pubic hair whatever makes them feel most comfortable.
Turns out, that is what she meant after all – she doesn’t mind what anyone does below the belt, she just wanted to encourage a dialogue that challenges the status quo (which tells women that hairless = better).
“I didn’t say what I prefer, I just said pubic hair has a purpose. You can do what you want with it, I don’t care – you can shave it off every day, wax it off every day, turn it into a bonsai – I don’t care.”
“I just said consider maybe not removing it permanently and forever with laser treatment. Forever is forever and when we make those choices for our body we have to live with them forever.”
If nothing else, it’s good at this book of Cameron’s – though certainly nothing mindblowing in the grand scheme of women’s liberation or anything of the sort (not that it’s aiming to be – is starting a bit of a dialogue. This book is literally getting SO MUCH PRESS, as are the topics she covers within it. I’m sure this is largely due to the fact that she’s Cameron Diaz, of course, but at least she’s putting it to decent use.
Have any of you ladies read this thing yet, or do you plan to?

I mean, look – ladies should feel free to do whatever they want when it comes to pubic hair. The world is your oyster – pun… sorta intended, I suppose – and you certainly don’t have to wax everything off or get fancy shapes going or whatever. However, that’s a personal decision that should remain with you, your sexual partners and perhaps your friends if that’s something you deem suitable for conversation. It doesn’t belong in celebrity “health” book, but Cameron Diaz clearly didn’t get the memo.
From The Body Book (via The Mirror):
“I hear that there’s a big fad these days of young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bits,” Diaz writes.
“Personally, I think permanent laser hair removal sounds like a crazy idea. Forever? I know you may think you’ll be wearing the same style of shoes forever and the same style of jeans forever, but you won’t. The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon, and all fads change, people.”
“Pubic hair also serves as a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be courting your sexiness. Pubes keep the goods private, which can entice a lover to come and take a closer look at what you have to offer. Also, let’s be honest: just like every other part of your body, your labia major is not immune to gravity.”
“Do you really want a hairless vagina for the rest of your life? It’s a personal decision, but I’m just putting it out there: Consider leaving your vagina fully dressed, ladies. Twenty years from now, you will still want to be presenting it to someone special, and it would be nice to let him or her unwrap it like the gift that it is.”
There are so many things wrong with this, I can’t even get started. From the fact that this is in a book that’s been publicly released to the idea that CAMERON DIAZ thinks she knows what’s best for the female body to the awful analogy of “unwrapping” your vagina like a present, to the bullshit idea that “gravity” would make your vagina “less attractive” so your partner so you need to hide it with a patch of hair… girl, no. Add this misguided bullshit to the chapter about her acne and hoo boy, we’re in for it.
On the other hand, it’s hilarious that Cameron went on a rant about this in her “body book”. If this excerpt is anything to go by, I bet it’s hilarious.

Cameron Diaz is currently ruining the remake of Annie but also found time to contribute to a book about health, called The Body Book. In it, she’s very honest about her struggles with her bad acne problem. Here’s what she says about it, plus the solution she found, via Radar:
I mean, I had terrible, terrible, skin. It was embarrassing, and I did everything I could think of to make it go away. I tried to cover it with makeup. I tried to get rid of it with medication: oral, topical, even the harshest prescriptions. Nothing helped for very long.
It was really challenging to cover them up for the cameras. It was awkward and embarrassing and frustrating, and I always felt really bad about myself.
I [used to] eat a cheeseburger with french fries every day. [But once I stopped] a funny thing happened … my skin began to clear up! My acne wasn’t totally gone, but it was significantly better.
Looking back, I realize that I hadn’t needed those prescription drugs, those vials of potions and creams. I hadn’t needed to be angry at my skin or feel bad about myself. I had just needed to LISTEN TO MY BODY. … acne was my body’s alarm system, it was mew ay of telling me [to stop eating fast food].
Okay, see, I always thought that greasy fast food causing acne was a rumor. You know, Gwyneth talk. But hey, if she says this works, then good for her!
Anyone here suffer from acne? What do you do to treat it?
