Prince William Does ‘Hello!’ Magazine

Will the real Prince William please stand up?

Prince William, who just shared a special Valentine’s Day lunch with his ladylove Kate Middleton, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Hello! magazine. His appearance in the mag is due to a set of photographs of Wills that were sold to the highest bidder to raise funds for charity. Hello! paid the most so they get to use the photos. As you can see from Wills‘s Hello! coverphoto, he is rockin’ some seriously black hair … a whole lot of hair, actually:

Could it be a trick of the light? Or is Prince William the first member of the Royal Family to dabble in, dare one say it, a touch of Grecian 2000? A new portrait of the future king, taken only last month, shows him with a good covering of dark hair. It is all the more striking because it was taken just before his royal tour of Australia, where a gust of wind left onlookers in no doubt about his thinning crown. The image is one of several appearing in Hello! this week after they were sold to the celebrity magazine for an undisclosed sum in aid of charity. But while some make it look as if William has dyed his hair, it appears the change of colour may be down to either lighting or computer trickery because in other pictures his familiar dark blond locks are on display. The cover picture, showing the 27-year-old prince with his hands in the pockets of his jeans, smiling cheekily at the camera, was taken by a former drug addict and rough sleeper and is the first official royal portrait to be taken by a non-professional. Jeff Hubbard, 53, was eventually helped by Crisis, the national charity for single homeless people, and now has his own flat in East London. The charity persuaded William to let himself be photographed by Mr Hubbard. A double portrait signed by both men will be displayed at Somerset House in London from March 10 as part of the exhibition A Positive View before being auctioned for the charity. Although the money from the sale of the photos to Hello! will go to Crisis, there will be concern that William is allowing his ‘image rights’ to be used for commercial advantage.

Firstly, I think it’s fantastic that Wills would allow his image to be used to raise funds for charity. Something as simple as posing for a camera will, very likely, net millions of dollars for very needy charities. I can’t think of a better way to use one’s “image”. I’m more concerned, tho, by the misleading headline The Real William because the real William does not have a head of thick, black hair. After the jump, check out a real image of the real William for comparison … More »

Lorenzo Martone Does ‘New York’ Magazine

Plus he bears his 'Butt' again

Last week we learned the Marc Jacobs‘s new husband, Lorenzo Martone, is featured in the new issue of Butt magazine. It turns out that Mr. Martone-Jacobs is also featured in the new issue of New York magazine. In his interview, Martone opens up about life at home and at work … as the first husband of Fashion:

Martone (or Lolo, as his friends call him, like he’s a big puppy) loves to touch people. He has a powerful, and soothing, physical presence. He even smells reassuringly expensive (his cologne is called Poivres à Trois, which, he jokes, translates into “a pepper threesome”). He dresses in a happy, colorful uniform of tight shirts, suspenders, skinny jeans, scrunchy socks, and high-top sneakers, all by labels like Lanvin, Dior, and Marc Jacobs (he says he gets a slightly more than 20 percent-off VIP discount). For the last two years, Martone, who speaks four languages and has an M.B.A. in, of all things, luxury-brand management, has worked as a strategic planner for Chandelier Creative, a fashion and beauty ad agency with clients like Parfums Givenchy, Nars Cosmetics, and threeASFOUR. Tonight he’s wearing a Chanel watch encircled with diamonds, which he got from Jacobs after “I caught him smoking in action in Venice,” he says. Martone hates smoking, and they got in a fight over the fact that Jacobs hadn’t quit like he said he had. “Between the Taurus sign and being Latin, I probably reacted … ” He trails off. “And all I know, we were shopping in Venice and I got this watch as a gift.” Martone wears two rings. One he bought himself, with a matching one for Jacobs—pink gold from Boucheron, “which is Marc’s favorite brand.” He’s had bears engraved on the inside. “We call each other bears because of our facial hair and all that,” he says. “I have an attraction for beards. It’s kind of a fetish.” Jacobs grew one after they started dating. “I’ve molded him in my image,” Martone says, not quite seriously. The other, an infinity ring of emerald-cut diamonds, Jacobs gave to Martone off his own finger after they’d been together for eight months. “It was not an engagement ring, just a gift,” Martone says. Like Elizabeth Bennet, the heroine of his beloved Pride and Prejudice, he has his share of status conflicts over his marriage prospect. But then again, Jane Austen never imagined the blogosphere. Or for that matter, Butt magazine, the arty gay quarterly that Martone posed bare-bottomed for in the spring 2010 issue, discussing their wedding, as well as his personal sexual history.

Ah yes, I knew it wouldn’t take long for Martone‘s Butt to rear it’s proverbial head again. Incidentally, this New York magazine spread also offers another photo from Martone‘s Butt spread. After the jump, check out another look at Martone‘s NSFW bare butt in ButtMore »

Spring has Sprung

‘Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time’ Does ‘Total Film’ Magazine

Ready or not, here it comes

The upcoming new action film (based on a video) Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Total Film magazine. As much as it pains me to admit, I’m quite worried that this film is going to be a disaster once it hits the big screen … but promo for Persia continues unfettered:


As you may recall, my worry about the film came the first time I saw the movie trailer released last November. I’m concerned that Jakey poo will not be able to carry this film on his own … and that accent? OY! But, I’m hoping my worries will be laid to rest when I see the film in theaters later this year. After the jump, check out a few promo photos from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time from this issue of Total Film magazine … More »

Robert Pattinson Does ‘Details’ Magazine

“I really hate vaginas. I’m allergic to vaginas."

Robert Pattinson is featured on the cover and in the pages of the 10 Anniversary Issue of Details magazine which is devoted to the “Remasculation of the American Man” … which is very interesting, considering the quotes R. Pattz gave about his non-affinity for vaginas. HMMM. While Pattinson‘s quotes are sure to garner some attention, I think it’s the accompanying photospread — complete with nekkid ladies — that will get all of the attention. Here is Robert Pattinson‘s Details magazine coverphoto along with his feelings on vaginas … and more:

Rob on the sexy Details photo shoot: “I really hate vaginas. I’m allergic to vaginas. But I can’t say I had no idea, because it was a 12-hour shoot , so you kind of get the picture that these women are going to stay naked after, like, five or six hours…Thank God I was hungover.”

On his dream job of political speech writing: “You’d have two or three minutes to affect someone. Make them hear you…I quite enjoyed doing the press for Twilight because there was a similarity. But you’d better have something to say. I felt a responsibility to be fascinating.”

On his emotional sight: “The only emotional connection of relevance is with my dog. My relationship with my dog, it’s ridiculous.”

Interesting, interesting … yes … so how about those photos, yes? Check out a few photos (one of them very NSFW) from R. Pattz‘s steamy new Details magazine photospread … More »

Lorenzo Martone Does ‘Butt’ Magazine

Marc Jacobs's husband bares his butt in 'Butt'

Lorenzo Martone, the man who made an honest man out of designer Marc Jacobs by marrying him on New Year’s Eve, is featured in the new issue of the very NSFW magazine Butt. In his revealing interview, Martone describes his nuptials to Jacobs and even brags a little bit about his penis size … which is exactly the sort of thing you’d expect to read in a magazine titled Butt:

We got a hold of the BUTT Magazine’s upcoming interview with Jacob’s adorable husbear Lorenzo Martone and he says they were married in St. Barts over New Years even though they previously denied it. Also, Lorenzo says he’s hung! All-gay BUTT [NSFW, unless you work in a gay designer's studio] is known for their sexually explicit interviews with fabulous homosexuals and Martone’s—done by T Magazine’s Horacio Silva—is no different. Aside from Brazil born PR man Martone talking about his first time doing the dirty with a man while backpacking in Belgium, the real revelation is that Jacobs and his groom really were married when everyone thought they were.

“In the end, we just had an intimate wedding at a friend’s house with people who were already on the island. But it was funny to read about it so many times. Then there were the articles about [Marc] going back to his ex-boyfriend [Jason Preston]. He didn’t even see the guy. So you start to get text messages from all over the world, ‘Oh, I’m terribly sorry for you’. I guess that is the downside. But overall it’s very good.”

Now that we’ve heard it from Martone, we guess that their wedding cake really was a wedding cake and not some joke at a party like Jacobs rep tried to pass it off as. From the interview, the pair sounds very much in love, but what drives Martone crazy? Getting ignored backstage and Jacobs’ signature skirts. “He knows I don’t love it,” Martone says of his husbands sartorial choices. “I mean I loved it for a couple of months. I thought, ‘Okay, it was a cute joke. Get over it.’ Be he is in love with them. What can I say? He feels he has found his look and clearly he enjoys the attention that he gets.” As for dick size info, Martone makes a crack about Brazilian tools and Silva replies, “You mean the implication that all Brazilians are hung like Nazis at Nuremberg?” and Martone answers, “I can’t complain. My boyfriend can’t complain.”

At last, the whole wedding thing has been sorted out … Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo Martone are hitched. Also sorted out is the matter of Martone‘s penis size, no complaints … we get it. I can’t say I’m too upset to see Lorenzo‘s bare butt in Butt magazine. I do find it interesting that he chose to spill these deets in the pages of Butt but I’m glad he did. I’m curious to see if there are any other photos from this particular photospread (if, in fact, one exists). Are any of y’all interested in seeing Lorenzo Martone‘s Butt spread*?

*Er, you know what I mean ;)

Lindsay Lohan Does ‘Purple Fashion’ Magazine

All Jesus-like

Lindsay Lohan is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of the French magazine Purple Fashion and, if you can believe it, she is posed like Jesus Christ on the cover of the mag … complete with crown, white robe and outstretched arms. HMMM … do you think it’s possible that L. Lo is trying to court controversy with this particular coverphoto image?

Lindsay Lohan is on the cover of another magazine, this time it’s French fashion magazine Purple. Since it’s supposed to be more of an edgy magazine or something, Terry Richardson shot Lindsay as Jesus with her outstretched arms and a crown of thorns. So shocking! And we mean that, too. It’s pretty shocking that this is the first time in a while Linds didn’t even have to show her boobs for a fashion spread. And Lindsay’s Jesus dress-up fun isn’t all that’s going on in her cluttered life today. There’s also talk that Sam Ronson allegedly abused her, Jessica Alba says Lindsay never hooked up with her husband, Cash Warren, and Linds took to her Twitter to try to convince us she doesn’t use lip injections. In other words, it’s just a normal day for Lindsay.

LOL!! Yeah, I find this neither shocking, inventive, controversial or even inventive. It’s really starting to feel like Lindsay is trying to do anything to get paid attention to. It used to be, back when she was relatively relevant, that any ol’ thing she did was fodder for discussion amongst the masses … these days, pretty much everyone has grown tired and bored with her antics. I highly doubt there is anything Lindsay Lohan can do at this point to shock the public into batting a eyelash enough to care. I think now is the PERFECT time for Lindsay to just go away for a few years … live a quiet life, work on her craft, totally disappear off the face of the planet. If she handles herself right, she could come back triumphant and win back the adoration of her fans. At the rate she continues to go these days, she’s already turning into a has-been … and she ain’t even out of her 20′s yet. The Lindsay Lohan we loved back in Mean Girls is long gone … mebbe this trying-too-hard Lindsay Lohan needs to go away, too.

John Mayer Blabs To ‘Playboy’ Magazine About His Sex Life With Jessica Simpson

UPDATE: Mayer also talks about his "white supremacist dick"

John Mayer, who LOVES to make headlines with the douchey things he likes to reveal in magazine interviews, is at it again in a new interview with Playboy magazine. Among other things, Mayer discusses his “crazy” sex life with former girlfriend Jessica Simpson. While some gentlemen would never dream of kissing and telling, it’s clear that John Mayer has no problem with sexing and selling … out:

UsMagazine.com has an exclusive peek at Playboy’s March issue, where the singer, 32, dishes on everything from his past relationships with Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston to his dream mate. He dubs 29-year-old Simpson (whom he dated from 2006 to 2007) “a drug.” “And drugs aren’t good for you if you do lots of them,” he says, adding, “Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me. Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say,” he continues. “It was like napalm, sexual napalm. Did you ever say, ‘I want to quit my life and just fuckin’ snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to fuck you, I would start selling all my shit just to keep fucking you.’” He didn’t share bedroom details about Aniston, who turns 41 Thursday. But he denied reports that he penned the tune “Heartbreak Warrior” about her. “That woman would never use heartbreak warfare,” he tells Playboy. “That woman was the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person.” He also denied that Twitter obsession led to their split last year. “There was a rumor that I’d been dumped because I was tweeting too much,” he says. “That wasn’t it, but that was a big difference. The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, ‘These are the new rules.’” Oh, and how many women has he bedded since their break-up? “I’m going to say four or five. No more,” he tells Playboy. “But even if I said 12, that’s a reasonable number. So is 15. Here’s the thing: I get less ass now than I did when I was in a local band. Because now I don’t like jumping through hoops.” These days, he says he is hesitant to settle down. “I hate being the heartbreaker. Hate it,” he says. “If I date somebody and it doesn’t work out, it’s another nightmare for me” … Asked about his future, he says, “From now on I’m just going to pretend that people really dig the shit out of me. I’ve been trying to prove to people I’m not a douche bag by not dating, by keeping my name out of Us Weekly. That’s fucked up, man. I’m not dating. I’m not even fucking. So now I’m going to experiment with ‘fuck you.’ In 2010 my goal is to get more mentions in Us Weekly than ever.”

So lemme get this straight … Mayer‘s plan is be even more of an ass than he has been previously? Why am I not surprised. I’m pret-ty sure that Jessica won’t be too happy to hear about all this talk about her sex life hittin’ the media … and I find his quip that Jen hopes things will go back to the way they were pre-1998 very telling. LOL!! If she thinks that, she is really out of touch with reality. In all honesty, I don’t even feel bad for the moronic women who choose to get involved with John Mayer. It’s clear that he loves to brag and sell out his former “loves” … if you are dumb enough to succumb to his “charms”, you totally deserve the treatment he doles out afterward.

UPDATE: Another quote has leaked from Mayer‘s Playboy interview wherein he talks about the kind of women his “dick” likes to enjoy. When asked if Black women throw themselves at him, Mayer responded:

“I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.”

Er, is this supposed to be funny or witty? Do YOU find it funny or witty?

Meet Benjamin Rein Bündchen-Brady

Gisele & Tom's baby boy makes his debut on the cover of 'Quem' magazine

Back in early December we learned that happily marrieds Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady welcomed the birth of their first child together (Tom‘s second overall). It took a few days for news of the baby’s name to be disclosed and even longer for us to get our first look at the little guy. But, at long last, the Brazilian magazine Quem gives us our FIRST LOOK at Benjamin Rein:

A revista QUEM, que chega às bancas na tarde desta terça-feira (9), traz na capa as primeiras imagens de Benjamin, filho da modelo Gisele Bündchen com o marido, Tom Brady. Benjamin nasceu no dia 8 de dezembro de 2009. Desde o nascimento do filho, Gisele tem saído pouco de casa. Em 25 de janeiro, ao voltar do trabalho em uma sessão de fotos para a marca brasileira Colcci, ela carregava a foto do bebê na bolsa, mas recusou-se a mostrá-la na entrevista que deu ao Fantástico, da TV Globo. “Com o tempo vocês conhecem ele”, afirmou. Em 27 de janeiro, uma quarta-feira, ela saiu para dar seu primeiro passeio com Benjamin. QUEM mostra as imagens com exclusividade.

Yeah, I’ve got *no idea* what this article says but I’m guess it says something along the lines of Buy the new copy of Quem magazine to see the exclusive first photos of Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady’s newborn babyboy Benjamin NOW! Tho, in this instance … the picture really is worth a 1,000 words. As far as first baby photos go, this one is really cute. Naturally, the little man is a cutie … and considering how private Gisele and Tom are about everything, we’re very lucky to get this look at Benjamin. He’s really adorable. I hope we’ll be able to see more pics of him soon but I’m not really holding my breath. We should just enjoy this first photo of Benjamin Rein … who knows how long until we get to see another photo of the little guy. He’s cute, right?
