Taylor Swift’s “Most Cherished Possession” Came From Lena Dunham

634.Taylor.Lena.mh.021113

Taylor Swift turned 25 on December 13 and celebrated with a star-studded pizza party at her apartment. I GUESS MY INVITE GOT LOST IN THE MAIL, TAYLOR. Anyway, she and Lena Dunham are apparently friends, although I don’t see her in this amazing pic from Taylor’s birthday party (though I do spot Jay Z and Beyoncé!):

But I digress. Anyway, in addition to the above photo, Taylor shared another birthday related pic on Instagram: this one of her “new most cherished possession” — a cat necklace Lena Dunham got her. But not just of any cat, of Taylor’s cat, Meredith Grey (named after the Grey’s Anatomy character.) Taylor has two cats, the other is named Olivia Benson, after the Law & Order: SVU character. And here is the cherished possession:

It’s pretty cute. Daily Mail reports that it was designed by Irene Neuwirth.

What would YOU have gotten Taylor Swift for her birthday?

Pippa Middleton And Kim Kardashian Talk About Butts

pippa-middleton-kim-kardashian

Kim Kardashian broke the Internet with her major butt, and Pippa Middleton is a bit confused as to why that happened. She doesn’t understand America’s obsession with butts, and she wrote about it in a column for The Spectator‘s Christmas Special, via E!:

No year is complete without a bottom story, and the ‘Rear of 2014′ award undoubtedly goes to Kim Kardashian, after her posterior exploded all over the internet last month. I must say that mine—though it has enjoyed fleeting fame—is not comparable.

But the Kim butt story did make me pause. What is it with this American booty culture? It seems to me to be a form of obsession. Kim’s aim, apparently, was to break the Internet, but I’m not sure she’s going the right way about it.

(Polite) shots fired! Frankly, Pippa, I don’t get it either. And I doubt Kim’s “business tactics” as well. I don’t think there’s an American out there who doesn’t. We accept her butt the way we accept a crazy old uncle at a family event; we’re not totally thrilled about it, but we know he’s not going away, so we may as well take photos of him and hashtag the hell out of it. I think that metaphor may have gotten away from me there; that’s okay.

Kim has something to say about Pippa’s butt. She told E!:

I love her. She has an amazing booty. She’s beautiful.

That’s kind of Kim. I think she may have overshot it a bit though.

What do you think? Let’s talk butts. Who really has the best butt in Hollywood?

Angelina Jolie Has Chicken Pox, Makes YouTube Video About It

Angelina+Jolie

Dearest Angelina Jolie has come down with a case of the chicken pox, and she wants everybody to know it. So she posted a video on YouTube about it, which seems kind of odd, but since she’s missing a few events, I guess she didn’t want anyone to get alarmed about why she might be absent, so she made it clear in the video.

You can sort of make out some spots on her neck and chest area, and aside from that and looking a little tired, she still looks utterly gorgeous. I mean, of course she does, she’s Angelina Jolie. She can’t not look gorgeous, even if she does act like a “spoiled brat.” If she ever looks un-gorgeous, that’s a sign that the world is ending. Mark my damn words.

Of having the pox, “I just can’t believe it,” she laughs. “But such is life, there it is. And send everyone my love.”

You can see the whole short vid here:

BREAKING NEWS: Amanda Seyfried will eat whatever she wants, thank you

amanda seyfried

Amanda Seyfried may be ~Hollywood slim~ but that doesn’t mean she’s on some crazy crash diet. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. She loves to eat and doesn’t restrict herself if there’s something she sees that belongs in her belly.

From People:

“If I want to eat it, I’m going to eat it. Life is short,” the actress said at the 19th Annual ACRIA Holiday Dinner in New York City on Wednesday night. “[But] I have a steady workout regime.”

So how does Seyfried stay in amazing shape and still eat what she wants? “I’m into ballet. Hot yoga, not Bikram. You sweat, you move and it’s really good for your limbs, joints and muscles.”

Whoa, kewl story. A balanced diet and exercise? Say what? This is groundbreaking stuff!

I actually think that dress is really cute, though. A lot more palatable than this shit.

Taylor Swift and her Bambi legs welcome you.

How’s everybody doing? This week went by lickety-split for me. I can hardly believe it’s time once again to critique and criticize celebrity looks! And why not? Gotta get the aggression out somehow, am I right? Naw, but we like to have fun here.

Anyway, go through the photos and make your pick for who has the BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the week! Hooray! (Hint: Kim Kardashian is gunning for WTF, once again.)

Amy Adams. I mean, it’s not a bad dress, but the whole effect is a little meh for my tastes. A bit drab, no?

Beyoncé really loves herself, eh?

beyonce

Look, no one is denying that Beyoncé is the Queen of Pop. No one can come close to touching what she’s doing right now and she’s brilliant at it. I love her and I will bop her jams from here ’til forever. That being said, don’t you just feel so damn EXHAUSTED about her sometimes? Like, it’s too much, Beyoncé. It’s too much. We know you’re brilliant and we celebrate you for it… but not nearly as much as you seem to want to celebrate yourself.

On that note, Bey has released a retrospective video for the new (re-)release of her self-titled album. In the video, she talks about the woes of being famous and how as a celebrity, no one views you as a human and more boo hoo shit like that. She also claims that no one knows who she is, not even herself, and talks about her mom, her craft, etc. It’s interesting, sure, but I just feel like I need a nap to recuperate after this.

I’m so torn! I love her and this is so well done, but it’s also just so over-the-top like everything else she does most of the time. MY BRAIN IS MELTING. Especially since she spends so much time talking about how amazing our bodies are and how we’re not proud enough of ourselves. Is that why you’re hitting that Photoshop so hard, girl?

Evangeline Lilly doesn’t really know what “feminism” means

evangeline lily

You probably remember Evangeline Lilly as the marginally talented and very attractive actress from Lost or The Hobbit, but oh my, she’s much more than that. She’s also demonstrated herself to be rather ignorant and sorta clueless, so let’s concentrate on that one today.

“Feminism” is a bit of a buzzword lately, one that celebrities totally love to exploit for their own gain or veer away from entirely because hey, equality for all! Evangeline took it to a whole new level, however, when she claimed that she’s not a feminist because… she doesn’t want to be a man?

“I don’t like the idea of playing a one-dimensional character who is just fearless, strong and killer and has instincts and just thrives in dangerous circumstances –- that’s really boring to me and I don’t think it represents what most women feel inside,” the 35-year-old told HuffPost Entertainment before release of “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” “I’m very proud of being a woman, and as a woman, I don’t even like the word feminism because when I hear that word, I associate it with women trying to pretend to be men, and I’m not interested in trying to pretend to be a man. I don’t want to embrace manhood, I want to embrace my womanhood.”

I… um… did she… I mean… WHAT? I’m so confused. WHAT is she on about? Is she serious that she thinks being a feminist means you want to be a man? Wow, I never knew someone (aside from Kim Kardashian) could be so stupid. This is mindblowing.
