On Monday, we covered Katy Perry’s July Vogue cover, which featured a lovely Rodarte dress and a subdued, albeit moderately photoshopped Katy as photographed by Annie Leibovitz. The full spread has now been released, and it’s more of the same — Katy in flowery dresses and largely set in a farm and nature setting. Annie has had a thing for barns in quite a few of her recent celebrity shoots, and I’m instantly reminded of the picture where Daniel Radcliffe was photographed farting sunshine atop a puzzled looking horse. This shoot isn’t bad though, and I’m glad to see a side of Katy that isn’tMore >
Yesterday’s post about Nigella Lawson being choked at a public restaurant by her husband, Charles Saatchi, was the subject of quite a discussion. To briefly recap, the Mirror acquired exclusive, graphic photos of the incident that showed Saatchi gripping his wife’s throat on the patio of a public restaurant while she looked panicked, humilated, and disturbed. Sadly, nobody in the restaurant or on the street came to her aid, and she was left alone by Saatchi at the table and later fled to her car in tears. The incident happened over a week ago, but nobody (except the do-nothing bystanders)More >
This story is rather shocking, and even though Nigella Lawson (a UK-based celebrity chef and host of her own programme, “Nigella Bites”) isn’t that well known stateside, this tale is well worth covering because it’s bringing attention to the issue of domestic violence, which still carries a stigma and is generally only discussed behind closed doors. In a very public setting, however, Nigella was choked by her husband of nearly ten years, Charles Saatchi, during a heated argument. And the Mirror has acquired rather graphic photos that detail the sequence of events.

This story’s title probably sounds a lot worse than the actual text from Enquirer. They claim to have a source who says Robert Downey Jr. is like a little puppy with his overbearing wife, Susan. Once the story gets rolling though, it becomes clear that Susan is only using her wifely influence to keep Robert on the straight and narrow as a recovering drug addict. I believe this story contains a lot of truth. I also think that Robert needs a “pushy” woman in his life to lay down the law and let him know exactly what will happen if he slips up and ends up in some motel with his face in a pileMore >
Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus are getting divorced … again. Actually, they never got divorced a first time, but they were very close. In October 2010, Billy Ray filed papers against Tish (possibly in part because of her alleged affair with Bret Michaels), but then he dropped the divorce by the following March. In the time that passed, Billy Ray managed to deliver guilt-inducing interviews about how “Hannah Montana” destroyed his family (which was a handy method of emotional blackmail; and then of course, Billy Ray totally backtracked on his remarks after he and Tish decided to stay together.
I’ve been wary of jumping on the “Justin Theroux & Jennifer Aniston Probably Won’t Get Married” Bandwagon. Whenever I form a conspiracy theory about JustJen, it either gets shot down immediately or Jen’s super-fans scream at me. Here’s what I believe at this point: I think Justin is in it to win it. I think he’s down with Jennifer’s lifestyle and he likes all of the “upgrades” in his luxury. But I also think that after more than two years together, he’s gotten a deeper understanding of Jennifer’s World, and her world is more neurotic and more boring than he was expecting. I’m notMore >
