Ugh, let’s do this. I have to admit, it’s incredibly smart of Esquire to release their Brad Pitt cover story piece by piece, spreading out the revelations and quotes throughout the week. Today’s revelations from the Esquire piece do not come from Brad, however. They are from his “longtime makeup artist” Jean Black. Black has apparently been working for Brad for 23 years, and she spends some time in the article praising Brad for keeping his natural look, his wrinkles, her unkemptness. Black told Esquire, “He’s not fighting it.” Then Black seemed to go WAY off-message and she namedMore >
Last week we had so much to cover that I ended up not saying anything about Radar’s last story about LeAnn buying Twitter followers. Radar reported in April that LeAnn seemed to buy 50,000 Twitter followers (or robotic followers, Twitter-bots) to up the number of her “followers” ahead of her album release. Radar then said last week that she bought even more – about 100,000 new Twitter-bots so that she now has more than 560,000. The number jumped by more than 100,000 literally overnight.
And what is she doing for those Twitter-bots? Well, she’s continuing her path to famewhore everyMore >
Here are some photos of Rooney Mara in Dior at the Ain’t Them Bodies Saints premiere. I think this was a premiere just in general, not in competition for the Palme, either that or it’s in competition for Un Certain Regarde. I don’t know. Rooney’s Dior ensemble is a variation on Jennifer Lawrence’s black-and-white premiere dress, did you know that? I think J-Law wore it better. I just don’t get what Rooney is trying to achieve with her fashion. Is she trying to show us that she’s so avant-garde and special that she can wear fug clothing and pull it off? Or does she honestly think sheMore >
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 >
Christina Hendricks covers the June issue of Lucky magazine, and she looks absolutely lovely. Unfortunately for some of you, the magazine has covered up most of her famous assets, so there goes the famous booby appeal. She is showing just a hint of cleavage in one of the shots, but it just isn’t the same, right? I’d bother getting up and arms about such a stereotype, but Christina is the one who’s usually going for boob spillage dresses on the red carpet. It’s her thing, I get it. She’s gorgeous, and here are some interview excerpts about fame, “Mad Men,” and the nefarious nature ofMore >
Lana Del Rey covers the June issue of Canada’s Fashion magazine to promote herself, I guess. Okay, that was probably a little bit harsh. Lana does actually hold a bit of relevance lately since one of her songs, “Young and Beautiful,” appears on The Great Gatsby soundtrack. You can hear the song here, and to me, it pretty much sounds like every other Lana tune. This Fashion spread is very vintage inspired like many other Lana-centric photoshoots, and I have to say that she does have an amazing figure. As far as the mood of her modelling goes in this shoot, I think she’s trying way too hard,More >
Here are some photos of Gerard Butler and Miranda Kerr at the Met Gala on Monday night. They worked the carpet separately, of course. Although I don’t think either of their significant others were at the event. Gerard’s girlfriend, Romanian model/actress/whatever Madalina Ghenea, was not with him (more on that in a moment). And Miranda Kerr seemed to be without Orlando Bloom too. He’s probably in rehearsals for Romeo & Juliet, maybe. And what do we know about Miranda’s behavior when her husband isn’t around? OH RIGHT. So this little Page Six piece was especially interesting:

Beyonce was one of the most photographed women at last night’s Met Gala. Probably because she was the co-chair, I guess. And probably because, from the looks of it, she posed the longest and the hardest on the red carpet. She wanted to make sure every photographer got every angle on her ensemble. Like Kim Kardashian (HA), Beyonce wore Givenchy. And like Kim, everything was very matchy-matchy – matching dress and gloves and boots. I don’t know what’s happened with the house of Givenchy – responsible for many of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic looks – but I honestly wondered, “Huh, is thisMore >
Note: These photos show Justin Bieber performing in Stockholm, Sweden on 4/22 instead of at the Dubai concert discussed in this story.
Justin Bieber’s international tour of terror continues into the glimmering desert oasis known as Dubai. According to a tipster on Reddit, Bieber has raised a real ruckus on the way to his Sunday evening gig by running red lights and speeding up to 150 mph on the highway. The tipster supposedly worked at the venue and uploaded photos of Bieber’s ID tag as well as a truck that was impounding Bieber’s cars, and those details make the story sound pretty legit.More >
