Miranda Kerr Does ‘Vogue Italia’ Magazine

In 3D

On Sunday we got our first look at newlywedded Miranda Kerr out and bout with her burgeoning Baby Bump and today we get to see her on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Italian Vogue magazine. Miranda‘s photospread appears to have been shot well before she started showing her bump … and is presented in 3D:

Now, I know that some of y’all are really tired of 3D but I am not … and I LOVE this magazine cover and photospread. If you have a pair of old-fashioned 3D glasses lying around (you know with the red and blue lenses) then you can see this cover in 3D — and it’s pretty cool. After the jump, check out 3 photos from Miranda‘s photospread where she models items from the Fall collections of Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu and others … More »

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Gets Propositioned On The Cover Of ‘Steppin’ Out’ Magazine

Is Snooki ready to marry after 2 weeks of dating?

Former Iraq war veteran and current Gorilla Juicehead Jeff Miranda, who has been romancing MTV‘s Jersey Shore star Nicole Snooki Polizzi for the past couple of weeks, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Steppin’ Out magazine with a headline that asks for her hand in holy matrimony … behold:

They’ve barely been dating two weeks, but Snooki’s new boyfriend is ready to make a commitment. Iraq veteran Jeff Miranda proposed to the Jersey Shore star in what can only be described as a slightly tacky way on the September cover of Steppin’ Out Magazine. He poses down on one knee on the cover asking ‘Will you marry me?’ In the article, Miranda talks about his love for the Snooki – real name Nicole Polizzi – and his desire to share a future with her. ‘I want us to be together forever,’ he says. ‘I could see us having children. I want to pop the question to her. If we got married we would be the best parents around. She’s so loving and puts everyone else before herself. She’ll be a great mother.’ And Miranda is sure that Snooki will agree to spend the rest of her life with him. ‘I think Nicole will be shocked by this cover story and the fact that I’m asking her to marry me on the cover. ‘But once she deals with the shock I think they’ll say yes. I really do. In fact, I know she’ll say yes. And Miranda insists he loves Snooki for who she is, rather than her fame. ‘People think I’m using her for fame. But that’s bullshit. They’re just haters. I didn’t ask for camera’s in my face. It came with the territory.

LMAOOOO! I cannot think of a more perfect way for Snooki to enter the bounds of holy matrimony. We know that she’s been lookin’ for a Gorilla Juicehead and now she’s found one … or two, since she was just spotted making out with some other dude just a few days ago. Irregardless, if Snooki is ever gonna get hitched … I think this is the perfect way for her to do so. Mazel tov!

Lindsay Lohan Does ‘Vanity Fair’ Magazine

"I was irresponsible. And I'm not making excuses"

Back in July we learned that the then still-incarcerated Lindsay Lohan would be appearing on the cover and in the pages of the September issue of Vanity Fair magazine. Today we get our first look at L. Lo‘s coverphoto for VF mag (which has her lookin’ a bit like Grace Kelly) along with some excerpts from her coverstory interview … behold:

Her youth, her absent father and her own poor choice of role models led Lindsay Lohan astray, the actress admits in a revealing interview conducted last month, shortly before she began to serve her jail term and stint in treatment. “I was irresponsible. And I’m not making excuses,” Lohan says … quoting the 24-year-old from a new cover story in Vanity Fair. In what she now considers “scary and sad,” Lohan says part of her problem was that the tabloids were her single news source: “I would look up to those girls … the Britneys and whatever. And I would be like, I want to be like that.” Now, though, her clubbing days are over. “I see where that’s gotten me now,” she says, “and I don’t like it.” Not that she finds her past reputation as a party girl entirely deserved. “If I were the alcoholic everyone says I am,” she says, “then putting a [scram] bracelet on would have ended me up in detox, in the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the things that people say I’m taking and my father says I’m taking – so that says something, because I was fine.” As for drug use, “I’ve never abused prescription drugs. I never have – never in my life. I have no desire to. That’s not who I am,” she says. “I’ve admitted to the things that I’ve done – to, you know, dabbling in certain things and trying things ’cause I was young and curious and thought it was like, okay, ’cause other people were doing it and other people put it in front of me. And I see what happened in my life because of it.” Going to Los Angeles for her career in her late teens, Lohan, a Long Island native, says, “These were my college years … but they were in the public eye. I was irresponsible. I was experimenting. I was doing certain things that people do 10 times more of when they’re in college.” The problem, she surmises, was “I didn’t have any structure. In the beginning, I had structure, and then I lost all the structure in my life. I think a lot of it was because when I was doing my first slew of movies, it was very go-go, and I had a lot of responsibility, and I think just the second I didn’t have [structure] anymore – I was 18, 19 – with a ton of money.” Largely at fault for her rocky foundation, she says, is father Michael Lohan, who was not there for his family. “I think if anyone should be looked at medically it’s him,” says Lindsay. “He has such a big chemical imbalance at this point because of all the things he’s done to himself. … The worst part of it is you turn around and you see your dad crying and normally you’d be, like, happy that your father’s there. But then he has to go and do an interview right after.” Moving ahead, she says, “I want my career back. I know that I’m a damn good actress, and it’s been my passion since I was a child, and I know that when I care about something, I put 100 percent and more into it. … I want the respect that I had when I was doing great movies. And if that takes not going out to a club at night, then so be it. It’s not fun anyway. I don’t care. It’s the same thing every time.”

See, here’s where I have a problem with this VF interview … Lindsay tries to lay out at the start that it was her “irresponsibility” that caused her downward spiral into jail … and then she makes excuses for every single thing in her life. I do not disagree that her parents are to blame for her dangerous behavior but it’s not her father’s fault alone. Her mother’s enabling ways will prove to destroy Lindsay if she let’s them, I believe that wholeheartedly. Her father may have not provided structure early in her life but her mother is the one causing the harm right now, at Lindsay‘s lowest point. I find it HUGELY comical that Lindsay is also blaming her current woes on the experimentation of her “college years”. LMAO!! That girl has never even seen the inside of a college classroom or even touched a college textbook and she’s happy to say, Oh I was just wild during my “college years” … and other people were worse. I’ve never heard anything so moronic in my life. Lindsay Lohan will NEVER get her life back until she stops giving bullshit answers in magazine interviews and STARTS TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER ACTIONS. I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt since this interview was conducted before she went to jail and rehab … I’m hoping and praying she has a bit more perspective, one that makes her realize that her problems are due to her poor choices and her total irresponsibility. I know that is a lot to ask for but, honestly, if Lindsay is going to save her own life … she’s going to have to take 100% responsibility for her own life.

After the jump, check out one of the photos from Lindsay‘s VF photospread which will be published in this issue of the magazine … More »

‘Entertainment Weekly’ Gets The 2010 Pre-Emmy Awards Party Started

Party Time, Excellent

It’s Emmy Weekend and you know what that means … parties, parties, parties! Entertainment Weekly magazine got things going last night by teaming up with Women In Film to host their annual Pre-Emmy Award soiree at the Restaurant at The Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, CA. Many of the folks from True Blood were in attendance last night, including newlyweds Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer who were photographed together for the first time since they hot hitched in Malibu, CA last weekend. Here are a few photos of some of the celebrants at EW‘s par-tay and some deets about the other soirées that took place around town last night:

Celebrities roaming the Entertainment Weekly and Women in Film pre-Emmy party late Friday night seemed to stay in packs. Fellow comedians Kathy Griffin and Bill Maher chatted outside the restaurant at the luxurious Sunset Marquis hotel, while adroit “Parks and Recreation” co-stars Adam Scott and Aubrey Plaza held court on the patio. Seth MacFarlane, nominated for original music and lyrics for “Family Guy,” and Seth Green, nominated in the voice-over category for “Robot Chicken,” kept each other in stitches near the bar. Inside, invitees filled golden goodies bags with free makeup. Other attendees included Craig Robinson from “The Office” and Jason Ritter from the upcoming “The Event.” The men of “Modern Family” reunited Friday night at the Emmys’ performers nominee reception at Wolfgang Puck’s Spectra inside the Pacific Design Center. Emmy nominees Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Fred Willard, along with Nolan Gould, who plays Burrell’s son on the ABC comedy, mingled at the posh cocktail party … On the other side of the party, “Dexter” actor James Remar and other attendees filled their plates with Chinese chicken salad, Shangri La lobster and miso-glazed salmon. Partygoers also feasted outside on the balcony on short ribs and sweet plantains while listening to a jazz band perform such tunes as “I Kissed a Girl” and the theme song from “Frasier.” Nominees in attendance, including “Mad Men” actress Elisabeth Moss and “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston, were presented with certificates by Academy of Television Arts and Sciences chairman John Schaffner, who recalled accidentally stepping on Glenn Close’s gown at a Screen Actors Guild event before he handed the “Damages” star her accolade.

There will be a host of parties going on here in LA tonight on the eve of the 62nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which will air LIVE on NBC tomorrow night at 8PM ET, 5PM PT. It won’t be long now … we will very soon find out if our fave TV shows and actors will walk away with the coveted Emmy trophies. Who are YOU rootin’ for to win?

Britney Spears & Sister Jamie Lynn Are NOT Having A Double Wedding

B.S. Alert

The coverstory of this week’s issue of OK! magazine makes the bold claim that sisters Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears are planning a double wedding in order to marry their respective beaus Jason Trawick and Casey Aldridge … but as cute and completely ridiculous as this story is, it turns out NOT to be true:

It turn[s] out that Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears are not planning a double wedding just like a swirling report has suggested recently. A source close to the “Toxic” singer [makes clear] that “there is no truth” to the rumor, while Jamie’s pal added the story was made up. The double wedding report was first run by OK! Magazine. The mag claimed both Britney and Jamie were excited about idea to “marry their boyfriends, Jason Trawick and Casey Aldridge, in a spectacular double wedding!” The mag further mentioned that Spears sisters would have their kids as “ring bearers and the flower girl” while they walked each other down the aisle. Meanwhile, Jason was reportedly thrilled about the joint-nuptials idea as well. A source said, “Jason said it would be bigger than a royal wedding.” “Britney’s eyes lit up… A Spears-girls double wedding would be a huge attention-getter,” the source further claimed. As for the guests listed for the ceremony, the mag revealed some big names including Oprah Winfrey, U.S. President Barack Obama and Lady GaGa.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I mean … c’mon. I must admit, there are quite a few tabloid magazine stories that have a hint of truth to them even if they are completely fabricated … but this ridiculous b.s. about a double Spears sister wedding is totally laughable. Once you get to the guestlist which reportedly includes Oprah, Obama and Gaga you *have* to know it’s complete fiction. As much as *I* would love the cheeky ridiculous of a double wedding as imagined by OK! magazine, I felt it was my duty to help clear up this outlandish rumor. Hahahahaha … it’s like, OK! wasn’t even trying to make this bologna sound believable. Ah well, better luck next time.

‘POP’ Magazine Releases An Alternate Britney Spears Coverphoto

Princess of 'POP'

Yesterday we got our first look at living legend Britney Spears on the cover of the new issue of the British magazine POP. Today we get to see Britney on an alternate cover for POP magazine, which I understand is available for purchase now!

Normally reserved for the likes of Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn and front row figures firmly approved by the serious fashion set, the winter issue of the vibrantly quirky fashion glossy features Britney as seen through the eyes of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and the lens of Todd Cole. Murakami has developed a reputation as the Japanese Andy Warhol, with his 2D, ‘Superflat’-style works exploring the notion of selling a product and creating exposure for a brand figure. By mass producing merchandise featuring elements of and characters from his creations, classically trained Murakami has crafted an empire that blurs the line between high and low brow art and has helped to redefine the contemporary Japanese art scene. As part of his quest to generate pieces that better reflect the Japanese zeitgeist, he has frequently returned to the theme of the country’s fascination with trying to eerily maintain an aura of innocence when it comes to mainstream pop culture figures. Cuteness/‘kawaii’ is king in Japan and appropriated, anthropomorphised motifs that continually appear in Murakami’s work include vividly coloured mushrooms, teddy bears and staring eyes. Yet in collaborating with Spears, the artist brings consumerism and fetishism crashing together in Technicolor with a parody of the doe eyed, naïve Manga girl. Posing in a Rodarte lace wedding dress, Spears sweetly gazes up at the camera from the front of one cover, mimicking the shot that appeared on her debut album cover. The picture is slightly blurred and over exposed, surrounding the star in a halo of light as she perches amongst dozens of white flowers. There is even a cartoon Starbucks cup (an ever-present fixture in candid pictures of the star) pasted alongside one inset frame. Kitsch? Most definitely. But sickeningly twee? Certainly not. Murakami is not seeking to present Britney as having emerged from the cocoon of her highly publicised conservatorship virginal and reborn. Whilst she appears undeniably beautiful and doll like, the effect is not one of mannequin level perfection; of a polished, airbrushed-within-an-inch-of-its-life editorial. Some have already commented on Spears’ apparent resemblance to a young Courtney Love in the cluttered cover shots, and although the bleached blonde hair may have something to do with it, the faded feminine tones and heavy mascara -rather than fluttering falsie- framed eyes add a kinderwhore-esque grungy edge to the Lolita façade … Overall, bravo to both Dasha Zhukova’s POP and Team Britney. In uniting for this shoot, Britney has not only bagged some fantastic fringe-fashion credibility, but together they’ve unexpectedly managed to fuse style relevancy (the seasons 1990s, grunge and lace trends featuring amongst most wanted designer pieces), artistic merit (as the subject fits perfectly with the artist’s inspirations, providing a new branch of social commentary) and a fresh approach to high end fashion spreads (by tapping into an aesthetic and personality that hasn’t been represented recently in the press).

I LOVE this so much!! I can’t wait to see more. Fortunately, our dear Britney is lookin’ out for us rabid fans. She updated her official Facebook profile with a new photo from this POP magazine photospread. Check it out, after the jump … More »

Elin Nordegren Does ‘People’ Magazine

"I ... feel stronger than I ever have"

On Monday we learned that the marriage between Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren was officially over as the terms of their very public divorce was made final. As you may recall, we learned earlier this year just how horribly Woods treated his wife Nordegren by cheating on her so publicly (and with so many different women) and just a few months later, the couple are no longer married … Tiger is a lot poorer and Elin is a lot richer. Today for the first time since the Tiger Woods Cheating Scandal came to light, Elin Nordegren is telling her side of the story to People magazine. Here is our first look at Elin‘s People mag cover and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:

Her divorce is final and she’s ready to talk. Elin Nordegren breaks her nine-month silence in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine. “I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children,” she says in the magazine’s latest issue, out just days after her split from Tiger Woods was made official. The 30-year-old mother of two, who is studying towards a college degree in psychology, says that despite her husband’s betrayal, “I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself.” In 19 hours over four visits to her Windermere, Fla., rental home, Nordegren shared never-before-seen personal photographs and opened up to PEOPLE about the emotional roller coaster she’s been on, her life as a mother to Sam, 3, and Charlie, 19 months, and her hopes for the future. “My immediate plan is for the kids and me to continue to adjust to our new situation. I am going to keep taking classes, but my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal,” she says. She tells the magazine this was her first – and last – interview, as she intends to remain a private person.

I’m actually very surprised that this interview even exists … not because I know how private a person Elin Nordegren is but because I was certain the terms of her divorce from Tiger Woods would insist that she never speak publicly about what went down between them. It does not surprise me in the least that Elin vows that this will be her first and last public interview about her failed marriage to the infidelitous Tiger Woods. After the jump, check out a couple photos of Elin with her kids Sam Alexis and Charlie Axel near their home in Orlando, FL and read a few more excerpts from her People magazine interview — including her take on what happened on that fateful Thanksgiving night when Tiger got into the car crash that brought all of his cheating to light … More »

Britney Spears Does ‘POP’ Magazine

Brit-'POP' star

Yesterday afternoon, our dear Britney Spears posted a message on her official Twitter profile alerting us to the fact that she will be gracing the cover and the inner pages of the new issue of POP magazine. Today, we get our first look at Britney on the cover of POP magazine as well as a few teases as to what’s in store when the magazine hits newsstands on September 1. Here is Britney‘s manga-inspired POP coverphoto along with the tweet messages she posted yesterday:

So excited for you guys to see my POP Magazine Cover shoot art directed by the brilliant Takashi Murakami – Britney / I just saw the photos for the first time and they are beautiful. Comes out Sept. 1st. Thanks @TakashiPom – Britney

Woot! I love this! Britney doesn’t normally do these kinds of photospreads so I’m very excited to see the full set of photos directed by Murakami. I was very fortunate to be able to see the Murakami exhibit that was housed at the Brooklyn Museum of Art a few years ago and have been a big fan of his for ages. I have no doubt this POP magazine spread will be inventive and fun. After the jump, check out one more photo from Britney‘s POP photospread and read a little blurb that teases what’s to come in the mag … More »

Blake Lively Does ‘Interview’ Magazine

"I'm actually a very shy person"

Gossip Girl and Green Lantern star Blake Lively is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Interview magazine. In her coverstory interview, Blake opens up about her shyness and how she managed to overcome it to become a successful actress. Here is Blake‘s Interview coverphoto and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:

Confident. Poised. Stylish. Glamorous. These are the kinds of words typically used to describe Blake Lively. Not shy. But in fact, it’s true. The Gossip Girl star says she is naturally shy, and it was acting that forced her out of her comfort zone, giving her the confidence – or at least, the illusion of confidence – that’s so critical for someone living in the public eye. “I’m actually a very shy person – that’s a big secret, so don’t tell,” Lively, 23, reveals in a chat with Ben Affleck in September’s Interview magazine. “But being in [acting] classes pushed me to break out of that a little bit. It’s like nature versus nurture: I’m naturally very shy, but I was brought up in a way where I had to get up and get out of that.” Affleck directed and stars with Lively in the upcoming heist thriller The Town. In the Interview piece, he remarks on how comfortable she seemed on set, even while filming a sex scene with him on the very first day of shooting.

This excerpt of Blake‘s interview with Interview continues behind the cut … where you can also check out a few photos from Blake‘s jailhouse/surveillance video-themed photospread shot by Craig Mcdean. Check ‘em out, after the jump … More »
