Anna Wintour pretty much called Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tasteless

Everyone lost their shit when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West appeared on the cover of Vogue earlier this year. The internet wouldn’t stop talking about it, thousands of subscribers threatened to (or actually did) cancel their subscriptions to the fashion magazine and basically we gave Kimye and Vogue EIC Anna Wintour exactly what they wanted: more attention. But what did Anna Wintour REALLY think? How could a woman whose life is dedicated to haute couture allow such a travesty to happen? Well, there’s no accounting for taste, is there?

Here’s what Wintour told CNN journalist Alina Cho at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night (via Fashionista):

“I see the role of Vogue to reflect what’s going on in the culture. The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too. It’s such a long time ago probably no one remembers, but she was a very controversial figure. Now she’s part of the establishment. I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us.”

LOL, well, that solves that, then. So, it’s basically okay to celebrate tasteless people because the public wants what it wants, so even if she doesn’t belong, we have to make her belong to sell copies. Nice! Love the standards Vogue has set there.

Janice Dickinson reveals she was raped by Bill Cosby in the ’80s

janice dickinson

Janice Dickinson has long been a source of entertainment with her zany (some would say “crazy”) personality. She was the highlight of America’s Next Top Model and the show sank when she left. She is, by her own account, the world’s first supermodel and spent the ’80s traveling the world, doing fancy photo shoots and all the other shit you’d expect a supermodel to do. One experience she did have, however, scarred her for life and she’s only now talking out about it in explicit detail: Janice claims that she, too, was raped by Bill Cosby in the 1980s.

Apparently Cosby promised to help Janice’s career in the early ’80s and called her from rehab to come to his home in Lake Tahoe. There, he gave her what she thought was a pain pill with a glass of wine and then proceeded to rape her. Janice detailed the experience in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight:

“The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,” she tells ET. “… Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”

I’ll paste the video of her talking about this (it also includes some video of some of Cosby’s other victims) below, but I find it so interesting how people are like, “Well, if Bill Cosby did this, why didn’t these women come forward sooner?” Uh, a lot of them tried to and were silenced – don’t forget he settled out of court with one, as well. Also, the fact that people are even asking that question sort of answers itself. We live in a culture where women are seen as liars when it comes to sexual assault, much of the time – ESPECIALLY when the perpetrator is a public figure, not to mention one so well-respected and seen as a “family man” like Cosby was (and still is, by many).

Also, anyone who thinks Janice Dickinson can’t be trusted and she’s nuts and jumping on the bandwagon, she first alluded to this assault over a decade ago. She was pressured by Cosby attorneys to take passages out of one of her books that detailed the rape in detail, though apparently if you read through it, it’s still pretty obvious what happened.

The question is, will ANYONE ever bring this asshole to justice? Why aren’t charges being brought against him?

Katherine Heigl wishes Shonda Rhimes liked her

katherine heigl shonda rhimes

Shonda Rhimes has stated pretty bluntly that she doesn’t have time for Katherine Heigl-like bullshit. She’s rude, she’s bitchy, and nobody wants anything to do with it. Katherine herself insist that she’s not rude, but pretty much everyone else she’s ever encountered disagrees with that. Still, Katherine is pretty cut up about Shonda not liking her and wishes she could do something to change it.

Here’s what she told Mario Lopez on Extra:

“The last one with Shonda…it sucks,” Heigl said when asked about Rhimes’ recent Hollywood Reporter interview, in which the Grey’s Anatomy creator said “there are no Heigls” allowed on the set of Scandal and that she doesn’t “put up with bulls–t or nasty people [anymore].”

Heigl, who ticked off Rhimes after removing herself from Emmy consideration in 2008, added: “I am sorry that she feels that way and I wish her nothing but greatness and I have nothing negative to say about [her]. I’m a big fan of her work. I watch Scandal every week and so I’m sorry she’s left with such a crappy impression of me. I wish I could do something to change that. Maybe I will be able to someday.”

Huh. Watch her in action below. I wish we could all stop talking about this – Shonda will never like Katherine, Katherine will always be annoying, yada yada. Let’s all move on.

Want to live in Justin Bieber’s old bedroom?


Justin Bieber grew up in Canada, where he spent a good portion of his time with his grandparents, at their house in Stratford, Ontario. Well, now Memaw and Pepaw are ready to sell up, and they’ve put the house on the market for $276,000 – and they’re marketing it well over the price it’s worth by using Justin’s name and the fact that his old bedroom is in the house!

From TMZ:

Justin’s grandparents are selling their 3-bedroom home in Stratford, Ontario … and one of those bedrooms belonged to young Biebs — who spent about 80% of his childhood at the house.

The house is being marketed as Justin’s former crib.  As for the asking price … it’s pushing it, but grandma and gramps think a rich Belieber will ante up.

Real estate sources say the home has been updated … but Justin’s room has been left intact — it’s decorated the way he liked it … with the logo of his favorite hockey team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, emblazoned on the bedding, curtains and wallpaper.

It’s unfortunate that 12-year-olds don’t have $300k lying around, but I’m sure some grown ass sicko will pony up for this. Doesn’t Justin give his grandparents any money, though? Pushing up the price on the power of their grandson’s name seems sorta gross and plain greedy, but then… I guess that’s a family trait.

Charles Manson is getting married to the owner of his fansite

charles manson afton burton

Talk about a tale of finding love in a hopeless place! Charles Manson, who is now a ripe-old 80 years of age, is getting married to 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton. Burton goes by the name “Star” for some reason and not only is she clearly insane, but she’s also the owner of a Charles Manson fansite and has spent several years trying to exonerate him for the endless crimes he’s committed.

From ABC News:

No date has been set, but a wedding coordinator has been assigned by the prison to handle the nuptials, and the couple has until early February to get married before they would have to reapply.

Manson is imprisoned in California State Prison, Corcoran. His bride-to-be lives nearby and maintains several websites advocating his innocence.

The woman left her Midwestern home at 19 to move closer to Manson, who was convicted in the notorious murders of seven people, including pregnant actress Sharon Tate.

The wedding will likely happen in December, she told the Associated Press.

“Y’all can know that it’s true,” she said. “It’s going to happen.”

“I love him,” she added. “I’m with him. There’s all kinds of things.”

Isn’t that heartwarming? True love does exist! Keep in mind Charles is not eligible for parole until 2027, when he’d be in his mid-90s, and chances are he won’t last that long (nor will he get out when he IS eligible). What is wrong with people?!

Matthew McConaughey brought his family to the Hollywood Walk of Fame

matthew mcconaughey family

Alright, alright, alriiiiiight. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself!) Matthew McConaughey has had a long and illustrious career in Hollywood, and it’s about time he was honoured for it, right? He got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday and adorably decided to bring wife Camila Alves and his three children to the event. Cute family, right?

The kids are 6-year-old Levi, 4-year-old Vida and 2-year-old Livingston and they’re adorable. Also, it looks so warm in California! I had to wear a padded jacket and keep my hands inside the sleeves in the 35F temperatures this morning when I went to get my coffee (still rockin’ that iced, all winter long!) so it’s looking particularly inviting at the moment.

Congrats to Matthew, though – well deserved honour!

Willow and Jaden Smith are absolutely bonkers

willow smith jaden smith

Willow and Jaden Smith, children of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, aged 14 and 16, have actually lost their damn minds. They teamed up for a new interview with The New York Times’ T Magazine that will make every synapse in your brain misfire with its sheer insanity. I can’t even tell you what they talk about in the interview because none of it means anything. I suppose, in essence, they’re discussing life, time, the spiritual world… but even then, that’s a stretch. Without further ado, I’ll just share some excerpts:

I’m curious about your experience of time. Do you feel like life is moving really quickly? Is your music one way to sort of turn it over and reflect on it?

WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.

JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.

WILLOW: Because living.

JADEN: Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.

WILLOW: It’s the action of it.

JADEN: Exactly. Because your mind has a duality to it. So when one thought goes into your mind, it’s not just one thought, it has to bounce off both hemispheres of the brain. When you’re thinking about something happy, you’re thinking about something sad. When you think about an apple, you also think about the opposite of an apple. It’s a tool for understanding mathematics and things with two separate realities. But for creativity: That comes from a place of oneness. That’s not a duality consciousness. And you can’t listen to your mind in those times — it’ll tell you what you think and also what other people think.

I… you… it’s… what? I don’t understand! Maybe that’s the problem, though. I mean, THEY seem to understand. They even have thoughts on babies!

WILLOW: Breathing is meditation; life is a meditation. You have to breathe in order to live, so breathing is how you get in touch with the sacred space of your heart.

JADEN: When babies are born, their soft spots bump: It has, like, a heartbeat in it. That’s because energy is coming through their body, up and down.

WILLOW: Prana energy.

JADEN: It’s prana energy because they still breathe through their stomach. They remember. Babies remember.

WILLOW: When they’re in the stomach, they’re so aware, putting all their bones together, putting all their ligaments together. But they’re shocked by this harsh world.

JADEN: By the chemicals and things, and then slowly…

WILLOW: As they grow up, they start losing.

JADEN: You know, they become just like us.

Welp, I’m out of here. I officially don’t know what in the hell is going on anymore.
