35I WILL NEVER GET BORED OF CHRIS CROCKER!

Never, never, never, never, never!!

You know why I love Chris Crocker?

Because Chris Crocker is a self-made man.

No one came to his high school and offered him a part in a reality TV show. No, no. He did this all by himself. All by his crazy, dramatic, fame-whoring self. Nobody helped him. And that is what Hollywood is supposed to be made of.

And seriously the photo of him hanging out of a truck window massaging his nipples is probably the hardest I’ve laughed all week. I’d like to say I’ve never done the same thing, but I can at least say I’ve never done the same thing for a professional photographer. Just whoever happened to be on that tour bus passing by.

6Christina Ricci: NOT the Face of Louis Vuitton

Christina Ricci Smoking a Cigarette, Pictures, Photos

Heh. A reporter from Interview magazine made the mistake of asking Christina Ricci how she liked being the face of Louis Vuitton.

Her response?

“Well, I’m not anymore. I was one of four actresses that they used in a campaign once and it was really fun. I liked it. I would like to be the face of Louis Vuitton. I am not, however. You know who is? Scarlett Johansson is the face of Louis Vuitton. Wrong interview.”

Ouch.

This is why it’s nice to be a blogger and not a real reporter. I don’t ever have the opportunity to say really dumb shit like that directly to celebs.

7Foxy Brown is Out of Jail

And I couldn’t possibly care less.

Oh, and her new album’s coming out May 13.

Hey, if you gotta do eight months in jail, you may as well time your jail release with your album release. God works in strange ways, I suppose.

11I Love My New Office

Do you know what they have at the RealNetworks offices?

Like twenty feet from my desk?

Two vending machines, but everything in them is FREE! That’s right, you just press the button, and a soda comes out, and it doesn’t ask you for money first! It’s seriously the most delightful thing ever. It’s like I own a genie. I just go and get another soda every half hour or so, even if I’m not thirsty, just to hear the intoxicating clack-clack-clack of a totally free soda falling out of a vending machine. Amazing.

At my old job, they had free tampons in the women’s restrooms. That was pretty awesome, too. I used to tell my boss they should put that in the recruiting brochures. I thought it was the best perk ever, but that was before I discovered the free vending machines here. Sometimes I’d just grab a whole bunch of tampons and take them home with me. For some free-tampon fun. Nah, I’m kidding. Just for my period.

Anyway.

So today is the birthday of Anna, one of our two amazing designers here at Evil Beet (she’s also my former roommate, one of EB’s very first readers, and one of the coolest chicks I know). Yes, the brilliant artist behind the bikini-beet girl is turning 26 today. So you guys should all email her at annak@rhodehaus.com and wish her a happy birthday and tell her what a talented young woman she is.

7Quotables

“I just wish that he wouldn’t go and talk to the media. It’s not attractive to me, it really upsets me and I wish he would stop. … I love my father. I just don’t know why he’s doing what he’s doing. It’s a weird situation, very odd.”

Lindsay Lohan, on the Billy Bush Show.

Amen, sister!

Maybe this is what it takes to get that man to shut up.

4Homophobia Is Bad, Mmkay?

Here’s Lance Bass’s new PSA, in support of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, which is trying to urge students to stop the bullying, harassment and discrimination occurring in schools, with a day of silence (dayofsilence.org) on April 25.

This year’s event will be held in memory of Lawrence King, a California 8th-grader who was shot and killed February 12 by a classmate because of his sexual orientation and gender expression.

God, how much do you have to hate yourself in order to kill someone just because they’re gay?
