Leaked Nudes To Become “Art”

jennifer-lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence was one of the celebs caught in the leaked nudes disaster and unfortunately for her and the others (like Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst) the photos aren’t going away anytime soon — in fact, they’re going to be featured as “art”. From E!:

Despite plenty of outrage from the public, Cory Allen Contemporary Art and artist XVALA are proceeding with their upcoming art show, “No Delete,” which will feature provocative images of the A-list stars.

“The artist sees these images as art,” Cory Allen explained to E! News. “[They are] a representation of someone or something that has a different meaning for everyone. Transforming those images to canvas presents them in a different light. It makes them real.”

Last week, CACA announced the leaked images will be life-size, unaltered and printed on canvases. The “art” will be held at a showroom in Saint Petersburg, Fla.

Despite several stars threatening legal action against anyone who posts the photos, Allen says what they’re doing doesn’t deserve legal ramifications.

“Our goal was not to do anything illegal. It was for XVALA to create art; to follow through with his vision for this project and for me to promote it,” Allen explained to E! News. “We have not been contacted by anyone.”

Okay, a few things. First, this reminds me of something Andy Warhol would do, although he’d definitely alter the images with his famous brightly colored silk screening technique. Secondly, I’m all for “art”, but I think this needs to die. What happened to these women was basically a sex crime. Their private photos were leaked, and it doesn’t matter how it happened — what matters is that it happened and it was a terrible invasion of privacy, and it should stop. Thirdly, this seems like a really lame excuse for art. But those are just my opinions.

What do you guys think? Would you see the exhibit? When it comes to art, is anything up for grabs?

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants To Be Jewish

Gwyneth+Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly wants to be one of the chosen people — no, I’m not referring to the Spice Girls — I’m referring to Jews. Apparently, Ms. Paltrow would like to convert to Juadiasm. As a Jew, can I just say, oy! Keep in mind it’s from the Daily Mail, so take it with a little bit of kosher salt. From The Daily Mail:

For years she has followed Kabbalah, which has its roots in the Jewish faith.

Now Gwyneth Paltrow is said to be ‘quietly converting’ to Judaism.

It was reported yesterday that the Hollywood actress, 41, has chosen to embrace the faith more closely following the break-up of her marriage to British singer Chris Martin this year.

The claim was made by the New York Post, which said Miss Paltrow was already raising her daughter Apple, ten, and son Moses, eight, in a Jewish setting after learning about her family history on the US version of the genealogy programme Who Do You Think You Are?.

Miss Paltrow discovered she came from a long line of influential East European rabbis.

Previously she has joked that she was a ‘Jewish princess’ after learning she had 17 generations of rabbis running through her family tree.

Oh she WOULD. She’s also said (via Fashion Times):

Oh my God, if you saw the amount of food that I do. I am the original Jewish mother. I make meals from these new recipes that look, smell and taste like the food I always cooked, but are also super healthy. That is an additional joy.

Girl, that doesn’t sound like ANY Jewish mother I know of. Jewish mothers don’t give a fuck about health content or count calories. They just eat and complain about the calories hours later. Duh.

Anyway, if this is what she wants, I wish her the best. L’chaim!

Alyssa Milano had a baby, too!

Scarlett Johansson might be a bigger star, but Alyssa Milano still counts, and she had a baby, too! Last time we saw Alyssa, she was putting us on to some hot ass snack foods (PASTA CHIPS! I’m still looking for you!) and generally being pretty chill while she grew a human inside her. Now she’s a mommy to another little one, a girl named Elizabella Dylan Bugliari.

From HuffPost Celebrity:

Alyssa Milano and her husband David Bugliari welcomed their second child, daughter Elizabella Dylan Bugliari, on Thursday, Sept. 4, her rep told HuffPost Entertainment. The baby girl was born in Los Angeles, weighing in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces, and is 19 ½ inches long. She joins big brother Milo Thomas, who turned 3 years old last month.

“Mommy and baby are doing wonderfully,” Milano’s rep added in a statement.

Aw, cute. I’m not really sure about the name, but do you, crazy Hollywood people. Babies for everyone!

Claire Danes knows she has an ugly cry

claire danes

Poor Claire Danes. She’s an absolutely phenomenal actress, but she was not blessed with a graceful “cry face”. I don’t know why that’s strange – none of us look particularly beautiful when we’ve been sobbing our eyes out, but for some reason, Claire’s ugly cry has grown into a presence of its own, and she knows all about it.

From Harper’s Bazaar UK:

Danes herself is a little nonplussed by the attention her ‘cry face’ attracts. ‘I’m surprised it’s so surprising,’ she says, before adding: ‘I have my guy, who thinks I’m pretty enough in our life together, so I don’t need to be seducing the audience that way.’ Then she goes on: ‘I think it’s also just my style, what I like in creative work, what I’ve always been attracted to, even as a little girl. I danced as a kid, that’s how I arrived at acting, and I took a class with a woman called Ellen Robbins. It was modern dance, so already a little raw. And I always had an appreciation for the macabre. We would do these improvisations and I remember one time, I was maybe 11 or 12, I was into grotesque movement, and I decided to do a dance where I was just doing a diagonal across stage, doing these weird movements and I landed and I just spat on the floor, like totally pretentious performance art. But it was great. I liked the ugly even as a kid, and I think that has stayed with me now.’

Girl, please – you do not have to justify your crying face! You’re busy being an AMAZING actress – let the haters hate. And to be fair, homegirl has cried exactly the same since she was 14 – we all remember My So-Called Life, right?! Love her.
