29Angelina Jolie Says She Gave Up on Breast-Feeding the Twins

OMG, I’m excited for a lot of things about motherhood, but breastfeeding is definitely not one of them. I know it’s important and helps the kid get good nutrients and bond with the mother and stuff, but the thought of an unpredictable mini-person sucking on my nipples kind of makes me feel funny. Hey, do vegans breast-feed? Is Alicia Silverstone going to breast-feed her kids?

Okay, I just did some research, and it appears vegan moms have to breastfeed, because none of the grocery-store baby formulas are truly vegan. So, in some weird way, having your baby drink your breast milk is the only way to truly raise a vegan baby. Okay. So. Then, if I made cheese out of human breast milk, would it be vegan? Someone get Alicia on the phone. I may be onto an enormous untapped market. I mean, I know people have made breast milk cheese (example here, but it’s in French), but have they ever marketed it as vegan? See, mom? That MBA wasn’t for nothing after all.

What the fuck was I even writing this about?

Oh, yeah. Angelina Jolie said breast-feeding the twins sucked, and I believe her.

“It’s very hard,” the actress confessed on Britain’s morning show GMTV. “I stopped at three months, [it was] about as much as I could do.”

The actress, 33, who was in London promoting her film The Changeling with her partner Brad Pitt in tow and their four-month-old twins, Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline, said she even resorted to manuals on the subject.

“There’s this football hold – it’s a lot harder than it looks in the books,” she says in the prerecorded interview at her London hotel on Monday. “I did that a few times. I would take turns. It just takes a long time.”

The mom of six also revealed that it was while filming The Changeling that she became pregnant with the twins: “We decided to start trying in the beginning, and by the end I was.”

Look, if Angelina can’t do it, it is officially impossible. Because we all know that she is better at everything than anyone else.

You know what else is kind of sad? A few years ago, I would have been all like, “Oooh, I want to try to make babies for months and months with Brad Pitt.” But Brad’s lost a lot of his allure since he got with Angelina. He’s become less of Mr. Bradley Pitt and more of Mr. Angelina Jolie. I dunno. I think of him less as a sex symbol now. Not that that’s a bad thing. It’s just something that occurred to me.

7I Am … Sasha Silhouette

Beyonce rocks the Addams Family chic look, as she hosts Gotham magazine’s annual party in NYC.

Wait a minute … what the hell kind of magazine still has the cash to hire Beyonce to host their damn parties? Isn’t every print publication in New York tossing people away like last night’s panties? I swear, Gotham magazine better not lay off a single person this year. They probably paid three people’s annual salaries to get Beyonce there in that ridiculous dress.

7Your Daily Paris

Has Benji dumped her over this shit yet?

An unusually mismatched Paris Hilton does some shopping in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

Perhaps most disturbing, the only thing she has with her name printed all over it is her clutch. GASP! That is way out of character for Paris lately. I hope she’s okay! (Heh.)

29Hangin’ in There!

You know, mad props go out to Frances Bean Cobain for even being alive at this point, let alone appearing on red carpets with some sense of composure. She’s really quite a striking young lady, and I hope her path in life is smoother than either of her parents’.

And for godsake, girl, SMILE!

At the Twilight premiere in LA.

29Alicia Silverstone Wishes to Challenge Me for the Title of Queen Vegan

Listen up, people. I’ve been a vegan for an entire week and a half now. Anybody who’s known me for any length of time will tell you that, after I’ve done something for more than two or three days, I am the undisputed authority in that activity. Which is why I think it’s rather odd that Alicia Silverstone has decided to write a book on veganism when, clearly, if anyone should be writing such a book, it is I.

Rodale Inc. has just proudly announced plans to publish The Kind Diet, due out in fall 2009 by the actress and animal rights advocate. The book explores the connection between what we put in our bodies and what we’re doing to the planet, and how choosing the right foods in the kitchen can help you feeling lighter, sexier, and more alive. The book will include a 3-step diet program and 75 vegan and macrobiotic recipes.

Oh, silly Alicia. I am the one who has been trusted with the position of informing the masses about veganism. Don’t come trotting out here like you’re suddenly relevant and try to usurp my position. I’m not the one who thought Excess Baggage needed to be produced. That’s your baggage, sweetheart. Now run along and make another doomed pilot for FOX and leave the writing to the pros, mmkay?
