Sunday, February 28th, 2010

sharon osbourne, wife and manager of ozzy, penned this wonderul article in today’s issue of the scandalsheet, the daily mail on fame. no, it’s not a review of the wretched remake of that fantastic film. but she talks about celebrity. but the best bit of the article is that she freely admits that ozzy osbourne used to love phil collins’s solo album, ‘in the air tonight.’

the end of the metrosexual

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

james cameron is all about setting the tone for hollywood. after the success of titanic, everyone scrambled looking for the next leonardo dicaprio. for 12 years while james cameron was away filming underwater documentaries movie-viewing audiences were mercilessly visually assualted by guys who looked like prepubscent boys (tobey maguire anyone?) and not like men. girlie men who looked like they got their chests waxed daily and visited the facilist once-a-week.

is it any wonder than cameron declined to put the likes of jake gyllenhaal and matt damon in avatar? but it’s kinda sad that he had to venture beyond north america and europe to the otherside of the planet (you know the place that’s summer in winter) to find a man like sam worhtington –you know, a guy who looks like a man and not like david beckham.

vanity fair goes on the defensive with lily white button nose issue

Monday, February 8th, 2010

you’d think they were describing rudolph in vanity fair’s new (white) hollywood issue that hit the stands just in time for black history month. from yahoo to a blog called momlogic, vanity fair looks like it’s gone on the defensive. momilogic includes an editor’s note on the blog: ‘Editor’s note: A rep for the magazine issued a statement saying, “Deciding who will appear on the Hollywood Issue cover — and within the issue itself — is a long process, and one we take seriously. For the young actresses on the cover, both films coming out this year and past work were taken into consideration, as were schedules and availability, since we had to shoot all nine actresses in a single day.’

one could argue that since black and latino and asian actresses are rarely used in hollywood movies, that most probably would’ve had plenty of time in their schedule to appear in the fotoshoot. we just feel sorry for anna kendrick that she was included on the otherside of the fold. we think vanity fair should’ve switched her spot with kristen stewart’s.
