I have something harsh to say and I know I might upset some fan-girls: The Avengers was overrated. Yeah, I said it. Don’t get me wrong, I liked The Avengers. It was a fun popcorn movie. But people went on and on about it like The Avengers was the greatest superhero film ever or something. So, obviously, I haven’t really been following the breathless reporting about the sequel. I know Robert Downey Jr. wants to do a sequel and he wants to get paid – in a HUGE way – for the sequel, because he made a ton of money off of the first one. I know Joss Whedon wants RDJ/Tony Stark back too,More >
Have you been following the breathless reporting about Jennifer Aniston’s new Bel Air home? She bought the place… last year, I think, and as soon as she bought it, she began an extensive (and expense) renovation which has been happening for about a year and a half. “Sources” claim this is her dream home. “Sources” claim this is the home where she and Justin Theroux will live once they are married. “Sources” claim Jennifer demanded to have a nursery put in. The renovation project reportedly has included a huge pool, a Korean spa (?), a retractable roof, a wine cellar and a “specialMore >
The Hangover movies kind of run together in a blur in my head, but I saw both of them and I remember animals figuring prominently in each. There was that capuchin monkey in Hangover II (she has her own wiki page, did you know?) and there were chickens and a tiger in the first movie. Well it turns out there’s a damn giraffe in this one, and this is a spoiler warning, but it’s in trailer so I don’t feel any guilt about revealing it – the giraffe gets beheaded by a thruway overpass. Of course PETA is all up in arms over this, even though the giraffe beheading was all computer generated. AMore >
Here are some new photos that Beyonce just added to her Tumblr. She’s reorganized her Tumblr so you can now see photos and videos from her Mrs. Carter Tour too. Some of the pics that she’s put in the “My Life” area are from her trip to Cuba with Jay-Z last month, the same trip that caused all of that controversy. I like the photos of Beyonce and Jay-Z posing together, just because we rarely get to see those coupled-up, tourist-y photos.
As for Beyonce and her Bump of Secrets, yesterday we discussed whether or not Beyonce was trying to shut down speculation about her womb in the wake ofMore >
Justin Timberlake is currently in Cannes to promote The Coen Brothers’ new movie, Inside Llewyn Davis. As Kaiser offhandedly suggested, JT probably thinks that he’s the star of the film, which is an interesting (and likely accurate) proposition because Pajiba’s Cannes review of the film doesn’t mention Justin Timberlake at all. Ouch.
Make no mistake though, Justin really wants to be an actor even though he’s made his multi-millions from music — record sales and (mostly) touring. Yet after JT made the douche move of retiring his most celebrated single, “Sexy Back,” in 2008, I’ve come toMore >
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber had their big public reunion last night at the Billboard Music Awards, and although they walked the blue carpet seperately, they did sit together and kissed for everyone, which … sucks. I’m firmly in the “showmance reunion” camp for this event because both Justin and Selena performed onstage last night, and I have a feeling that Scooter Braun got together with Selena’s people and encouraged them to make nice. They’ll probably “break up” again next week.
Anyway, Selena wore this semi-futuristic, white Atelier Versace gown with neon details that featured meshMore >
Last week, some older comments by Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries got wide play in an article on Business Insider. In 2006, Jeffries admitted that his stores marketed to a certain demographic and that they didn’t want other people wearing their brand. He said “We go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely.” The Business Insider piece pointed out that A&F does not carry women’s sizes above a large or size 10 althoughMore >
