Kate Hudson has always been a bit corny, but generally pretty harmless since she never talks about anything worthwhile (sample topics: not being able to afford designer dresses and losing her “rock edge” after having kids). However, she’s apparently decided to throw us a curveball by offering her thoughts on the very serious subject of two of her ex-boyfriends, Lance Armstrong and Alex Rodriguez, getting caught doping.
From InStyle (via Radar Online):
The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star tells InStyle that she was “as shocked as anyone” after Armstrong confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs throughout his cycling career – a career that included seven consecutive Tour de France victories.
Those victories, however, have since been stripped and the cycling superstar forever is banned from competitive cycling. And his former girlfriend isn’t afraid to express her agreement with the Union Cycliste Internationale’s decision.
“I personally think that you make the choices you make and you should reap the consequences,” Hudson told InStyle.
“Lance and Alex are phenomenal athletes who have made some bad choices and let a lot of people down,” she said. “It’s a decision they made for themselves, and they’ve got to loathe it.”
They’ve got to loathe it? What a bizarre thing to say. Frankly, I don’t think this is a topic that anyone needed her thoughts on – or anyone else’s, for that matter. What Armstrong and Rodriguez did has been discussed to the ends of the earth, but guess whose opinion really matters? No one’s, except maybe the athletic organizations that have decided to ban them. What they did was illegal and morally wrong, perhaps, but no one needs fucking Kate Hudson, a public figure, sounding off about it in a major publication. It just seems tacky – especially considering her prior involvement with them. As if she’s so enlightened, anyway.

Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy‘s relationship has been on the rocks lately – so much so that Kate stopped wearing her engagement ring for a while. It was looking for a while like they were headed for divorce, but now it seems like they’re back together… or at least trying to be.
The couple – who got engaged in 2011, and have a son, Bingham, 2½ – had “been on the rocks for some time,” a source close to the actress told PEOPLE in February.
“Kate is not giving up,” the source told PEOPLE.
Well, that’s… good, I guess. To be honest, I don’t think we’ll ever be seeing a wedding between these two. They do have a kid together, however, so hopefully even if things end, they can be civil with each other.

Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy have been engaged since 2011 but have never actually gone through with a wedding. That might’ve been a good decision, since rumours have been flying lately that the pair have broken up. Kate seems to have perpetuated those reports lately by turning up to the Oscars on Sunday night without her engagement ring.
E Online! thinks they have the scoop:
Five days earlier, at BVLGARI’s Decades of Glamour event, Hudson also ditched her diamond sparkler. The ring removal comes amid widespread speculation that her relationship with Matthew Bellamy is on the rocks. “They are OK. They go through their ups and downs like every other couple,” a source told E! News. “It’s true that occasionally they don’t spend as much time together as they would like—work pulls them apart from time to time. But they are working on strengthening their relationship.”
So, are they together or aren’t they? And does anyone actually care? Kate Hudson hasn’t been doing much of anything lately and Muse sucks (unpopular opinion, but deal with it), so I don’t think it’s all eyes on this celebrity couple or anything. They do have a 2-year-old son called Bingham together, so there’s that.

Kate Hudson – unlikely friend to Lea Michele and an actress whose best role will always be Almost Famous in my mind – has revealed something perhaps slightly unexpected for a celebrity: she can’t afford designer dresses. Say whaaaat? I mean, it’s not actually what you think – it’s that she CHOOSES to spend her money more wisely and invest it in her kids rather than on an outfit she’ll wear once for a few hours and never touch again.
From Harper’s Bazaar:
“People think we own all these dresses, but we borrow them! I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition.”
“I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could, but the truth is, things are just so expensive. Before [designer] Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable.”
I kinda find it endearing that she doesn’t waste her money like that and instead decides to put shit towards her kids, like an actual caring parent and not some Hollywood celeb. I do think she could afford to buy some designer stuff, mind, and that she’s probably given stuff semi-often. I mean, you saw how much designer shit even North West got for free when she was born!
