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 >
AnOther Magazine is standing by its controversial photo of Michelle Williams.
The Oscar winner poses for that publication’s latest issue (on an alternative cover) in what appears to be Native American attire, a look that has inspired many critics to react in horror and describe her costume as “redface.”
But the British magazine refuses to issue an apology, explaining instead via statement to Yahoo News:
“While we recognize the seriousness of this debate, the image in question in no way intends to mimic, trivialize or stereotype any particular ethnic group or culture, as recentMore >
Angry confrontations with members of the paparazzi are nothing new for Alec Baldwin.
But charges of racism most certainly are, which is why the actor spoke out late yesterday and denied allegations that he went off on an African-American New York Post employee with taunts of “coon” and “drug dealer.”
“I don’t think I’ve ever uttered a racial epithet to someone in my lifetime,” Baldwin told The Gothamist.
He explained that the photographed in question “bumped” into him as Baldwin was crossing the street, adding that the action was “deliberate” because they want “to bait you, theyMore >
There were so many high production commercials at last night’s SuperBowl, as there are every year, that it’s hard to pick favorites. (Spoiler: the Ravens won, and there was a partial power outage in the Superdome right in the third quarter that stalled the game for 34 minutes.) Here are some of the commercials which stood out for me, and they weren’t necessarily the ones with celebrities. We’re not covering the trailers here, just the commercials! Kaiser will have some trailers for you coming up. I’m sure I left some good ones out, you can see all the commercials and revisit your favoritesMore >
Some days I think the worst of Kristen Stewart, depending on what “the worst” is for that particular day. I do think she seems unprofessional, affected, sullen, disrespectful and twitchy, and what’s worse is that she can’t back up her bad attitude with actual talent (in my opinion). But even though my opinion of Kristen is pretty low, I will give her credit for some things – I don’t believe she’s some kind of girl-on-girl hater, you know? Like, I think she has female friends and she values those friendships and she doesn’t go around bad-mouthing other women. Maybe she’s super-jealous ofMore >
Of course I knew it was coming. You knew it was coming. Everyone knew it was coming. As soon as the NYPD slapped the cuffs on Lindsay Lohan and she started crack-squawking “Are you kidding me?!” over and over, we all saw the writing on the proverbial crack wall. Lindsay Lohan would not be going gently into that crack night. She would not be admitting her multitude of problems, she would not be throwing herself upon the mercy of a justly vindictive court, she would not show humility in the face of her crack-chickens coming home to roost. No, Lindsay was going to deny, deny, deny.More >
Lindsay Lohan is adamant that she did NOT punch anyone in the face at a club early Thursday morning, but admits she did get into an argument with Tiffany Mitchell.
She also admits calling Mitchell, a fortune teller/psychic, “gypsy.”
According to sources close to Lohan, Tiffany Mitchell approached her inside club Avenue to do a palm reading of some kind, but Lindsay turned her down.
Thse she noticed Tiffany’s friends crowding around her purse.
When Lindsay returned to her table, her friends told her that Tiffany’s friends stole her purse – a super expensive black leatherMore >
This is one of the funniest Lindsay Lohan stories ever. It’s just random enough to be true, too. The woman who was the recipient of Lindsay’s crack-fist is named Tiffany Eve Mitchell, and she is this blonde woman that I referenced yesterday. Tiffany is a “well-know psychic” apparently (LOL) and she said that when Lindsay Lohan walked into the club, she had a “premonition” (LOL). That premonition was not that she was about to get punched in the face by a crackhead, by the way. We still don’t know what the premonition was. But whatever it was, Tiffany felt the need to walk over toMore >
