Some revelations defy introduction or context:
In a bizarre interview with ABC News, the one American who has spent significant time with North Koran leader Kim Jong Eun — former NBA star Dennis Rodman — said Sunday that he considers the human rights violator his “friend.”
“He’s a good guy to me. He’s my friend,” Rodman said. “I don’t condone what he does, but as a person to person, he’s my friend.”
Sometimes it’s important to look critically at newly elected media-darling members of Congress, and sometimes it’s important to compile an adoring list of some of the best things freshman Illinois Congresswoman and former military helicopther pilot Tammy Duckworth has said. Call it the Jennifer Lawrence treatment if you must, but just about everything this woman says in public merits a gold engraved plaque. More
A weekly celebrity talk show set in my bathtub where I interview magazine photos of famous people with the eyes cut out. No cameras.
Chelsea Handler wearing a plain linen shift and screaming, screaming.
A talk show where every guest is forced to sing as much of “Danny Boy” as they can remember and once they miss a word they have to leave.
A talk show where everyone has to play the old board game Pretty Pretty Princess and talk about why the Tom Bombadil scenes would have been really hard to film for the Lord of the Rings
A celebrity talk show where all the guests and I soak in a big hot tub where the water’s never quite hot enough and talk about the impact Maude had on their careers and personal lives. More
The time has come for Anna Faris to reveal the secrets to her post-baby body to the Body Council; if her answers prove satisfactory to the elders she will be allowed to live and her infant shall be returned to her. If they do not, of course, she will be put out to pasture in the Ingenue Fields and her child will be consecrated at the Temple in the midwinter diet rites. More
No woman’s website can continue for long to exist sanely without referencing classic Hollywood actresses; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream of Crawford and Swanson. The Gloss, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. More
Look, I don’t want to be the person to objectify another person, but I’m watching this video of Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte doing interviews over the years, and I’m wondering if maybe he’s a little better when…well, when he has a chance to prepare before speaking on camera. More
Karlie Kloss, you’re okay by us. The more we hear you talk, the more we like you. More
Coco Austin (a.k.a. Mrs. Ice T) is a hilarious presence in the world. She has a physics-defying body and an adorable sense of humor, and she’s not afraid to show off either of them. She also seems pretty happy! So when Buzzfeed posted two Q+A’s with her, I was listening. Here are some things that I learned. More
The March 2012 issue of BlackBook features a cover story on the untouchable Christina Hendricks, as well as a photo shoot with the somewhat tired theme of “sexy woman frolics moistly in the ocean”…because she’s a sexy siren, get it? But while I might wish magazines would come up with some new ideas, I’m pretty sure Christina Hendricks can do no wrong, so I’m giving this editorial a thumbs up, anyway. Check out all the hott pix, plus some stuff you probably already knew about her (from the accompanying story), after the jump. More
I know people who go to fashion week are always saying things like “my feet are killing me!” and “this job will be the death of me,” but despite what Rachel Zoe would have you believe, nobody has “literally” died there until now. Maybe people will stop saying those things now? More
Angelina Jolie is on the cover of January’s Marie Claire looking as radiant as ever, and there are a whole lot more pretty pictures inside. What does she talk about in the article? Oh, lots of things. Her directorial debut In The Land Of Blood And Honey, social justice, not having very many friends, and wanting to move away from acting. The article is full of interesting stuff; here are eight choice quotes, plus all the photos from the editorial. More
The title says it all. More
They don’t call her Lara Stone for nothing. More
We already know what fashion people think of Fashion Week: they think it is The Greatest. (Or they pretend to be annoyed by it, but secretly think it is The Greatest. Same diff.) But what do regular, non-fashion people think of it? I went to Lincoln Center (and a few other places) and spoke to some people whose occupations take them directly into the line of fire. More
