Kanye West makes his debut at New York Fashion Week

Kanye West considers himself a jack – er, a genius – of all trades, so it’s only natural that he would be part of New York Fashion Week, right? Yesterday, Yeezy put on his first runway show for his Yeezy x ADIDAS collaboration, which I think is all about footwear but I couldn’t really tell because I was so distracted by the whole Hunger Games chic situation he had going on.

I mean, look at this bullshit. I’m all about high fashion and I get that art is art, but seriously? Someone call Jennifer Lawrence and tell her to bring her Katniss outfit – she’ll fit right in. Oh, and Kylie Jenner got to be a model, too.

Oh, and he dragged Kim Kardashian and his 18-month-old daughter North with them, and Nori wasn’t too pleased.

Who brings an 18-month-old to a fashion show and sits them in the front row? Who does it? These idiots. Notice Bey and Jay left Blue Ivy with a sitter. Have some dignity – that child wants no part of this fuckery. Even Anna Wintour was moving away.

No thanks to this whole thing.

Uma Thurman’s makeup artist speaks!

uma thurman

After Uma Thurman hit the red carpet the other night, everyone was bugging out over whatever the hell she did or didn’t do to her face. Turns out, it was just a makeup trick, according to her longtime makeup artist Troy Surratt, who felt the need to talk to the press and set the record straight.

From Refinery29:

“We did a much stronger brow and a bold lip for a French sort of feel,” Surratt tells us. “I applied a creamy foundation for all-over glow, and then contoured the hairline and her cheekbones, adding warmth. I applied the lip — my color in Mégalomane mixed with Peccadille — and then we just kept the eyes really, really light.”

The eyes were, of course, the primary source of speculation. Surratt wanted to do something unexpected with them, insisting that nothing lifts the eyes like the perfect brows. “The way I shaded her eyebrows with the pencil, I created an uplifting effect,” he says. “Then, I finished with a shimmering, silky-beige shadow on her lids, and went with no mascara at all…sort of a reaction against all the fake lashes we’ve been seeing on the red carpet.”

Yeah, I have to say, I’m not really a fan of the no mascara look (on anyone, not Uma in particular), but to each her own.

There you have it, anyway. Record set straight. Deal with it.

Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama promote Demi’s new skincare line

demi lovato

I’m not necessarily sure that Demi Lovato is the first person I think of when I think of skincare products, but she does have nice skin and she has lots of teenage fans who don’t really need to worry about hardcore serums and creams and whatnot, so I think her new skincare line, Devonne, will do well for her.

To be honest, I didn’t even know Demi was planning to release a skincare range until I came across the video promo for the line, which is pretty adorable and features her testing the products on a miserable-looking (on purpose! [?]) Wilmer Valderrama.

Apparently Devonne was created by Demi along with chemists she’s known for years and the line only includes 3 products at the moment – a Deep Facial Cleanser, a Hydrating Radiance Mist and a 3-in-1 Moisturizing Primer. The best part of the brand (I looked at the website!) is that apparently a portion of the proceeds go to the Lovato Treatment Scholarship for those struggling with mental illness. That’s a pretty good cause, you have to admit.

I’m not going to use any of this stuff because I’m not 16, but here’s the Devonne website if you know any pre-teens/teens that you want to get into skincare and give a cute little gift to for a birthday or whatever.

Helena Bonham Carter poses naked with a giant tuna for a good cause

Helena Bonham Carter apparently has a major phobia of fish, but that didn’t stop her posing naked with a giant tuna for a good cause. The photo shoot is in support of the Blue Marine Foundation, which aims to create marine preserves to protect endangered species of marine life around the world.

Here’s what Helena had to say about the effort:

‘There is a new movement, spearheaded by the Blue Marine Foundation and others, encouraging the Government to invest in creating marine reserves — fish refuges really — where they are safe from the ravages of industrial-scale fishing and where they can regenerate,’ Helena says.

‘We all have a responsibility to try and return our world to the next generation in the state we inherited it in, not worse.

‘It would be a sad thing if in our dotage we’d be describing a tuna fish to our grandchildren like we do a dodo today.’

Well, that sounds like a pretty good campaign to me – not that I understand how posing nude with a giant tuna between your legs is going to further that cause… but what do I know? Pictures behind the cut – they’re a bit NSFW, obviously, so here ya go…

Charlie Sheen lashes out at the Brian Williams “witch hunt”

brian williams charlie sheen

Brian Williams was suspended from NBC News for 6 months after it was discovered that he’s a liar liar pants on fire, and while most people believe that this was a more than fair punishment and that he was lucky to keep his job, others aren’t so pleased about the news anchor being taken to task. One such person is Charlie Sheen, who feels so passionately about this issue that he actually wrote an email to TMZ to express his outrage.

Dear Mr. Williams, Sorry to bother you during this most surreal, unjust and mercurial moment in your awesome life. First off, THANK YOU, for 24 years of inimitable professionalism and top shelf brilliance, as a stone cold passion driven and (PERFECTLY) fact based journalist.

Secondly, Thank you “squared” for delivering not only the news on a nightly basis, (PERFECTLY) to myself and my family. But for every other person alive, (with a TV) who relied and still do, on your poetic, insightful and NOBLE sacrifices, that made our longest nights shorter, and our shortest nights safer.

You good sir, are a hero in my “Entire Library”

Lastly; you are clearly the victim of a transparent and vile witch hunt! Erroneously “staged” by hooligans, non coms, cowards and oligarchs, who’s only desperate and hideous goal is to discredit the genius that they relied on for almost 3 decades!

Now and forever you are a true Patriot and a Hero of mine until the day i leave this star crossed imperfect Rock we call Earth…

Mr W: respect love hi 5′s and refuge! (if you need it!) I remain humbly and on dangerous standby at your service…. I am; the MaSheen….

Yikes. Good to see Charlie’s still hitting the narcotics so hard. Of everything Brian Williams needs in his life right now, support from a coked-out maniac is prooooobably not one of them. I guess this is the only way he can get press now? Sad.

Also, I don’t think Charlie really has any sense of right or wrong, so it makes sense that he would see someone being punished for his behaviour as a “witch hunt”. This whole thing is so bizarre.

Kanye West is planning a collaboration with Taylor Swift

I don’t know when exactly the switched flipped in Kanye West‘s brain that turned him from an incredibly focused, prolific artist to a raving lunatic, but I’m sick of it, and I think it’s pretty safe to say the rest of the world is, too. After his latest stunt at the Grammys on Sunday, Kanye felt the need to make waves again on Wednesday during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, where he revealed that he’s planning to go into the studio with none other than Taylor Swift.

Would you collaborate with Taylor Swift?

Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in. Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get in the studio and work. I don’t discriminate, I don’t have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album. I that think everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you’re Beyonce, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay Z, whether you’re Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I’d like to be involved with that.

Oh, so now Taylor Swift counts as an artist? Fuck off, Kanye. He’s not a music elitist, but Beyonce is the best artist of all time (besides himself, natch) and Beck doesn’t count? This guy is the worst. What’s even worse is the fact that he clearly lacks self-awareness so severely that he doesn’t even realise the ridiculousness of the crap coming out of his mouth.

Let’s hope this collab never comes to be. I know Taylor has her own issues, but I’d hate to see her lower herself to this bullshit – and it IS bullshit.

Meghan Trainor hasn’t kissed a boy in so long, tee hee!

meghan trainor

Meghan Trainor seems to see herself as a bit of an expert when it comes to boys and life. She knows that guys hate skinny women and really like “all the right junk in all the right places”. She also knows when men are lying – because their lips are moving, LOL!!! However, the truth behind the songs is a bit different – she hasn’t kissed a boy in, like, soooooo long, you guys. Why? She’s been too busy becoming a pop star!!

From Seventeen:

“I knew my life would be complicated if my dreams of becoming a success in music came true. And I knew I’d have to work hard to achieve those dreams, and that they’d have to take a front seat in my life. So even though I went cray in high school, now I haven’t kissed a boy in forever. I keep telling myself that the right guy is going to be worth the wait. When I find the one, it’s going to be like, ‘Damn, that’s why you took so long! ’Cause you’re awesome!’”

Megan also has things to say about self-confidence:

“When I saw photos of myself, I would think, I look awful. There’s a double chin! I never thought I’d be a pop star. I don’t look like Rihanna. [Then] after the video for All About That Bass came out…when I was signing autographs, this girl came up to me bawling and said, ‘You make me feel pretty again. Thank you.’ It really resonated with me that this girl was so gorgeous, and she didn’t even know it. It’s a mental thing. Just recently I was thinking, ‘I’m confident now, and I look good,’ and that’s because I’ve started saying those words out loud more. So now when I see pictures, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, why would I hate myself at all? I look incredible in that picture!’”

I mean, I can’t even say shit about the latter part – women should have more self-confidence for sure. I just can’t get over how boring and bland Meghan Trainor is.
