Jennifer Aniston and her BFF/hairstylist Chris McMillan sat down to give a joint interview about Jennifer’s hair to Marie Claire. I hate myself for saying this, but I actually found it interesting. I mean, the interview is just an embedded advertisement for Living Proof, which is the MIT-created haircare line that Jennifer invested in, owns a portion of, and is the face of. But beyond the Living Proof name-drops, Jennifer and Chris gossip about who has good hair, when her hair was the most damaged, if she ever wore weaves and Jennifer’s ideal wedding hair. I accept this for what it is!More >
Kanye West gave an EPIC interview to the New York Times this week. It’s so long and hard and epic (ha), I can’t even properly cull all of the crazy, interesting, noteworthy quotes from the damn thing. So I would suggest that if you’re interested, you should just go here to read the whole thing. Beware – it’s a whole lotta Yeezus. So, let’s get to some of the biggest highlights:
Kanye on how he argues about how great he is: “So I’m going to use my platform to tell people that they’re not being fair. Anytime I’ve had a big thing that’s ever pierced and cut across the Internet, it was a
I really don’t know what’s going on with Katy Perry. I don’t know if she’s really reuniting with John Mayer. I don’t know if Katy is trying to make something happen with Robert Pattinson. I don’t know if she’s trying to juggle both men at the same time. Here is what I currently believe – and this is just my Twihard conspiracy theory, with NO Twihard Proof – I believe that Katy and Sparkles are exploring something. I think they were friends and they’re still friends and Katy is rubbing her glitter-boobs on him and he likes it. I also think that she’s still got some unfinished businessMore >
You may know Sean Parker as the guy who founded Napster, was an early investor in Facebook, and had a cameo in The Italian Job. His role in The Social Network was played by Justin Timberlake. Parker is a tech investor worth $2 billion. Unlike Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who is worth $14 billion, he’s not reticent about flaunting his massive wealth.
Remember Zuckerberg’s quiet backyard wedding with friends and low-key honeymoon in Italy? Zuckerberg’s down-to-earth wedding looks even more admirable compared to the ridiculous blowout that Parker just had. It cost an estimated $9 millionMore >
Ugh, I have no idea what any of this is about. I was tempted to trash this story but it’s the day after a holiday and beggars can’t be choosers. Last week, Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes got into it yet again on their respective Twitter accounts – go here and here for the recap. Basically, Brandi couldn’t get in touch with her sons while they were at their dad’s house, so Brandi tweeted Eddie, and LeAnn responded on Twitter, basically throwing a party because LeAnn felt like Brandi was engaging her. A few days later, Brandi went OFF on Twitter about the incident and LeAnn once againMore >
These are photos of Rob Lowe in character as Liberace’s plastic surgeon, Dr. Startz, in the HBO movie “Behind The Candelabra.” If you haven’t seen it yet you might assume that it’s a comedy, but it’s not. Lowe’s character just stands out amid a sea of campy, kitschy bling and over the top costuming. I can’t do justice describing “Behind the Candelabra.” It’s wonderful and it feels realistic. Overall you get the sense that you’re peering into Liberace’s world as seen through the eyes of his young idealistic lover, deftly played by Matt Damon. It’s a glittering fantasy that only LiberaceMore >
The more I think about this story, the uglier it seems. A few evenings ago, two moderately famous members of the social media generation were self-righteously tapping up a storm on Twitter, and things got hairy. Apparently, 17-year-old Kendall Jenner was acting like a teenager (as should be expected, since she is one) and tweeted that she’d prefer if “things could be easier” in life. In response, 20-year-old Frances Bean Cobain unleashed some fury by sending out several consecutive tweets that labelled Kendall as “a f—ing idiot” and “self-absorbed” because Kendall dared to vague-tweet aboutMore >
Julianne Moore covers the June issue of DuJour magazine, and every time I’m reminded that she’s 52 years old, I go into a bit of shock. Of course, I am notoriously awful at guessing people’s ages, but with Julianne, I honestly don’t see how she’s a year over 40. She looks fantastic, and she has a healthy attitude about aging too. Overall, DuJour’s photoshoot is rather underwhelming, but this particular black-and-white shot is immaculate.
In the interview (titled “The Most Honest Actress in Hollywood”), Julianne lets rip a little bit on how “boring” the topic of aging is. You can tell thatMore >
Here are some photos of Keanu Reeves in Cannes over the weekend (the light grey blazer) and at the Monday photocall for Man of Tai Chi (the dark blazer). I glanced through these photos yesterday and I thought to myself, “Huh, I wonder why he looks so different…?” It’s because Keanu has had a scruffy beard for most of the year! The beard hid whatever is happening to his chin(s). The beard covered up his weight gain, sort of.
So… Keanu gained weight. Which I feel fine about noting since we (as a society) always note when a woman gains weight and my personal motto is “what’s good forMore >
Gwyneth Paltrow has the funniest woe-is-Goop interview in USA Today – you can read the full thing here. After exhausting all of us with tales of her perfect life and after years of doling out helpful Goop advice (“buy $458,003 worth of clothes for Spring!”), after talking about her hairy Goop and after managing to get named “The Most Beautiful Woman” by People Mag, Gwyneth wants all of us to know that she’s just like us. She has flaws! She isn’t perfect! And she doesn’t know why everyone is putting such unreasonable “perfect” labels on her. Some of my favorite quotes:
She’s a lightning
