Kristen Stewart considers herself a pretty staunch feminist, if many of her interviews are anything to go by (which, duh, they are). She constantly calls out the rampant sexism in Hollywood, is vocal about her support for her fellow ladies, etc. But her acceptance for all women draws a line somewhere before plastic surgery, which she compares to “vandalism” on the female body and claims is only undertaken by women who are going insane. Yikes.
“No, never. Never,” she says of plastic surgery. “I am so freaked out by the idea of doing anything. And maybe that’s completely arrogant but I don’t want to change anything about myself. I think the women who do are losing their minds. It’s vandalism.”
Yes, that is completely arrogant to assume that your experience is the experience of every other woman. Can it go too far? Sure – look at the Kardashians, who barely look human anymore. But while I say that, I also realize that it’s their choice. I might not agree with it, but it’s hardly “vandalism” and is not the source of their insanity, just one of the after-effects, I’d say.
KStew does have the tendency to be incredibly hyperbolic and put her foot in her mouth nonstop, so I doubt she was aware of the implications of what she was saying. But I think she maybe needs to think a bit more before she speaks in future.
Unfortunately, there’s no good news to report about Bobbi Kristina‘s health at the moment. The last we heard, Bobby Brown was telling everyone his daughter was “awake”, though he clearly only meant that metaphorically, and then he applied for guardianship over her estate. That title was given to him and Cissy Houston jointly, and it seems necessary since Cissy revealed this weekend that there have been no improvements in her granddaughter’s condition.
“She’s the same, she’s not progressing at all,” Houston told Entertainment Tonight‘s Kevin Frazier on Saturday. “She’s not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I’m ready for her… I have nothing to do with that. That’s His job. It’s His territory, you know? And I understand it.”
Houston will perform Saturday evening at McDonald’s Gospelfest in New Jersey, singing “The Blood that Jesus Shed for Me.” She tells ET that the songs’ lyrics hold special meaning to her today.
“Way back on the cavalry,” she quotes, “The blood that gives me strength from day to day shall never lose its power.”
Well, the whole thing is, you can keep a person on life support for years when they’re still a vegetable. They’re medically alive, but they’re not alive in any other way. Eventually, that difficult decision may have to be made by the family. That’s not for any of us to decide when that is, of course, but this tragedy needs some form of conclusion so they can try to begin and find peace and closure.
Do you ever just wake up in the morning and think, “Man, thank God Snoop Dogg exists in this world.” Just me? WHATEVER! You’re totally missing out. Anyhow, Snoop recently contributed to an HBO project that’s… actually a Game of Thrones mixtape, compiling songs to accompany the series to connect to younger fans, I suppose. It seems unnecessary, but HBO is running with it, and Snoop was actually pretty stoked to be involved. After all, he loves watching the show so he can learn all about history!
“When they asked me to do the track, I was more than honored because I’m truly a fan of the show. I would have done it for free, but they gave me some money on top of it, so I was like, “Fuck it, let’s do it!” I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here. I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now.”
On drawing parallels between ‘Thrones’ and the real world: “That kings still rule and a bitch fucked everything up, in every situation!”
Yikes. To hear Snoop’s song, “Lannisters Anthem” (LOL), press play below:
Courtney Stodden made a sex tape and has been shopping it around for a while, and it seems now the deal is done. She’s signed with Vivid Entertainment, which releases all the big celeb (I should probably put “celeb” in quotation marks) sex tapes, for $1 million… but there’s something a bit strange about this one: she doesn’t want any of the money herself, she wants it to go to charity.
Yes, in the least shocking news since the sun coming up … Stodden is accepting Vivid Entertainment’s offer to distribute her solo sex tape, but says she’s only doing it because she got screwed — and not on camera.
Stodden tells TMZ one of her best friends stole the tape and made several copies, and … “made it clear that he will stop at nothing to double-cross me.” Stodden says she’s releasing the video because, “I’ve been painted into a corner.”
Of course, it couldn’t legally be released without her signature, but maybe she was worried about Internet leaks?
Now the twist … Courtney claims she doesn’t want a dime of the $1 million — so she’s donating 100% of her fee to charities. She hasn’t decided which ones yet, but says she’s leaning toward animal rights groups and “children with cancer.”
I mean, obviously charity organizations will take money any way they can get it, but imagining thanking someone for having sex on camera to fund research into stopping childhood cancer or animal abuse? Pretty hilarious, but bless Courtney’s heart, I suppose…
Kim Kardashian released her book of selfies earlier this month – aptly titled Selfish – and people have been LOVING it. Even the high and mighty literary review sites have lavished praise on it, because it’s basically everything you love (and/or love to hate) about Kim. The book includes 448 pages worth of Kim’s selfies from over the years, as well as her profound observations about what was happening in her life when the photos were taken. In one, for instance, she was so inspired by the beauty of Asia that she knew she had to take a selfie. Work the logic of that one out.
Anyhow, this book has been selling like hotcakes, but there’s one small problem: it’s not complete! Kim discovered some unpublished selfies the other day that didn’t make it to the book, and now she wants to release a special edition to get them in, so as not to have her fans miss a single second of her life.
You guys!!!!!! OMG guess what I just found?!?! I'm so pissed u have no idea! I've been looking for this for a year to put in Selfish!!!!!!!
It’s not what it sounds like, obviously. As you probably know, Hugh Jackman has dealt with several bouts of skin cancer, and while he’s doing really well, he’s also vocal about how people need to be super vigilant about taking care of their skin, use sunscreen, stay off tanning beds, etc. And he thinks there’s one celebrity (and fellow Australian) who’s an inspiration in this area: Nicole Kidman. You see, Nicole is ghostly pale, much like myself, and doesn’t give a rat’s ass about having that ~summer glow~. And good for her!
“People like Nicole Kidman have done a great job,” Jackman, 46, tells PEOPLE of his longtime friend and former Australia costar. “Nicole told me when she was a kid she used to be made fun of all the time in Australia because she used to stay in the shade and she had whiter skin. And no one is making fun of her now.”
“I’m really heartened to see in general the idea that to be sexy and beautiful you have to be tan is gone,” he says. “Nicole has the most beautiful skin.”
I wouldn’t necessarily say that no one’s making fun of her – assholes will always and forever exist, especially on the internet – but I get his drift. And it is nice to see that Nicole has refused to bow down to the Hollywood pressure of being tanned to the extreme. Like her, I burn to a crisp if I’m in the sun too long (though I’m not QUITE as Casper-like as she is) and I’ve never felt the need to be any different. I like to call it “Elizabethan beauty”… and hey, saving myself the skin cancer will be worth it. (And yes, I know that using sunscreen doesn’t preclude you from getting skin cancer, nor does sunbathing mean you’ll definitely get it, so relax.)
If your bullshit alarm wasn’t blaring loud enough to wake up the entire neighbourhood after just reading the headline, congratulations: you’ve managed to continue living under a rock. Kylie Jenner posted a video on her Snapchat account this week in which she pretty clearly says that she’s “high as fuck” before biting into some delicious morsels. But since everyone is losing their shit and acting like Kylie smoking weed is the craziest, most scandalous thing they’d ever heard in their lives, she’s since come out and claimed she wasn’t high at all, just hungry!
I did a snapchat saying my chicken was "good as f*ck" eating Popeyes for the 1st time and apparently people think I said high as f*ck
Sure, maybe she WAS saying her chicken was good as fuck, but uh… that doesn’t preclude Kylie from smoking herself. I just don’t buy it. Also, weed is basically like cigs now in terms of outrage factor – so why she feels the need to go on damage control over something so dumb rather than just being like, “Yeah, son, I was BLAZING!”
