I don't care for it. It does nothing for her. I really don't understand the blondification of famous women when they look perfectly lovely with their natural hair colors.
lananans
I agree, she doesn't stand out anymore like she used to. I think it makes her look more frumpy.
sixelacat
I actually like her blonde look. I tend to think of hair as one more accessory to play around with, and since she's always had good style sense I'm not worried she's going blonde to be more appealing to a "mainstream". Of course, I dye my hair different colors all the time, have done since 7th grade. I do like my natural color (medium auburn), but I get bored easily and think it's fun to try different ones. The only one I won't do again is funnily enough blonde, though! I spent one summer as a strawberry blonde, and the experience was somewhat disturbing. I worked at a restaurant, and guys I'd been serving weekly for over a year were suddenly much more friendly. Some even thought I was a "new girl" and hit on me, not realizing I was the same girl who'd been helping them for ages! I had the same experiences with men in shops I frequented at the time. I just found the whole thing creepy, and even though I truly liked the hair color I'd never go back to it.
lananans
I had a similar experience when I dyed my hair red last summer. One of the creepy old man customers in my store had never spoken to me before but after the red hair dye he winked at me and told me that he liked redheads. I am now trying to get my natural colour back (medium brown with natural red tint).

If it makes Lily Allen happy to die her hair then I say let her go for it. If i had sufered a miscarriage and subsequent break up I probably would do something drastic as well.

Okay, I suppose everyone is sick of hearing about this by now...however, I had a thought last night about the whole Miley Cyrus/Annie Leibowitz photo shoot. I'm wondering: was the point Annie brought across in the photo that Miley Cyrus ALREADY IS. a sex symbol? me thinks yes. I mean, let's not kid ourselves. What was the first thought in your head when you first heard the name of this tween popstar? I know my thought was exactly this: "Hannah Montana? is that a porn star? cuz it's definitely a porn star name." Next thought I had of her was when I saw her on the Disney Channel: she puts on a LONG, BLONDE WIG and "turns into" a popstar. Why would you need the blonde wig? Answer: to be sexy. (duh.) Then, have you seen the way she dances during her act? sexy teen. Also, the photo with her dad reeks of (however twisted) sexy. Finally, the fact that the media discusses her "QUOTE UNQUOTE VIRGINITY."

I'm saying, let's not kid ourselves. Did this girl NEED to do a topless photo shoot to be a sex symbol? My answer: No. Already was. And that's the point. Perhaps Annie thought it should be discussed. The photo is what the viewer makes of it. And what is the viewer making of it? Perhaps THAT is an issue that could be at the center of the discussion.

Good point. I just wish people like Bill O'Reilly weren't the ones placing themselves at the center of the discussion. I understand E! News and Entertainment Tonight and shows like that obsessing over Miley Cyrus, but watching people like O'Reilly and Neil Cavuto (not that I watch regularly, but wasn't his show supposed to about business news or something, not teen pop stars?) freak out over it is annoying and a little creepy. Which I guess is part of your point wink.gif

I thought one other possible interpretation was that the photo was about Miley just as Miley, with 'Hannah Montana' and all the insanity that goes with her temporarily stripped away. (My long rant on this subject is here if anyone's interested.)
roseviolet
I found the photo of her sprawled across her dad's lap to be more disturbing than the photo that's getting all of the attention.

Agreed. I tend to ignore all mention of Hannah Montana Little Nepotizz Cyrus, so I hadn't seen this photo until yesterday night when I was browsing a blog. I had to do a double take. It's insane that no one is talking about how fucked up this photo is. The other one? Whatever. But this one screams "Hi, I'm this bad boy's sex kitten." EW.

So Ryan Reynolds seems to dig being engaged. Him & Little Miss Johansson are betrothed.
crazyoldcatlady
ick.

i thought higher of ryan reynolds than that.

he's dead to me now.
knorl05
takin it back:

any busties heard much of kellie everts?
auralpoison
Bodybuilder? Stripper for God? Supposedly had sex with the Governator?
knorl05
that'd be the one. i'm curious, have religious types actually taken her seriously? i cant help but feel what i've seen about her to be some massive joke.
auralpoison
I wondered that too! I knew who she was, but your query inspired me to dig a little. And I gotta say, there are way too many tits on that site for most Christians. Even the matriarchal religion one that has the glamour shots still has *way* too many boobies.

I must admit, her take on things is interesting.

i'm convinced that john mayer puts the voodoo on women. how else to explain his recent romance with jennifer aniston. blink.gif
auralpoison
It's gotta be voodoo. On what planet is he hot? I don't get it. His music isn't very good & he's not that good looking. His celebrity confuses me. And he gets the wimmins. I have never listened to a whole John Mayer song, so maybe that's it. Maybe there is a special note that he hits that drives the celebu-gals wild . . .
whatagirlwants
How do we explain what Nick Cannon is to Mariah Carey....???
sixelacat
He just sings 'em the brown note, aural. Saves them a trip to the pharmacy....he's a diet aid!
gtull1
I'd rather puke than listen to a whole John mayer song!
cstars124
Ok, seriously.

I just saw that picture of Miley Cyrus and her dad. That is gross. That's all I have to say. I don't really have an opinion on John Mayer. :-D
roseviolet
John Mayer doesn't make me puke, but Sixel's mention of the brown note nearly made me spit my drink all over my keyboard. So that's something. Honestly, I hear that John is a pretty funny guy - not the limp piece of milquetoast his music implies - so that probably has something to do with it.

I just saw a photo of Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty kissing. I think I need a tetanus shot now.
pollystyrene
He was hilarious on that Dave Chappell skit he did, totally made fun of himself. When he's doing more bluesy stuff, he's not terrible. He claims that's what he's always intended his music to be...I don't know why he keeps putting out such crap. Oh, duh. Money. rolleyes.gif

Ew, Amy and Pete.
hellotampon
I thought Amy Winehouse was married to that random scumbag guy.
auralpoison
She is married to that sleaze, he's in jail right now. Pete's been out of the pokey a week now. She has to snog some kind of loser.
quietmadness
Looks like Ashlee married Pete Wentz... mellow.gif

--Quiet--
auralpoison
Pete Wentz is a douche.
roseviolet
Read about the wedding earlier today. The article ended with "This is the first marraige for both." Was that really necessary? Now, I'm not a fan of Ashlee & Pete, but I find that sort of thing highly annoying. If my wedding had been announced in the paper, I would have been insulted if the article stated "This is the first marriage for both". It implies that it will not be the last marriage for both. I'm not holding out a hell of a lot of hope for these two, but it's still pretty damn rude, dontcha think?
hellotampon
I think it just means that neither has been married before.
quietmadness
Is it just me, or....does he have "gay" written all over him?? unsure.gif

This is not my favorite youtube video. But, I really love how her voice sounds, and the song (lyrics) itself, it is reminiscent of an emo 80's song, but in a good way. I also respect that she is not objectifying her body or her looks here, when she could have easily done so, and I am sure there was pressure on her to do just that - show some skin, be sexy. Also, respect the commentary on hollywood not being as glamorous as it may seem.
auralpoison
That is quite literally the shittiest Tom Waits cover I have ever heard. It sounds like a bad Sinead O'Connor impression gone monotone.

And Pete Wentz is still a douche.

Tom Waits cover, huh... I didn't know that. In that case, it falls a little flat, I still like it though, but now I am waiting for her to shave her head and go on t.v. and rip up pictures of the pope and the president.
auralpoison
Yeah, all the songs on it but one are Tom Waits covers. That's a *really* HIGH bar for one to set for one's self. Seriously. Madness! And it would be hella cool if she wigged out. America loves a trainwreck!

laugh.gif
I cannot imagine anyone pulling off a Tom Waits cover, does anyone know anybody who has?
It seems that in choosing Tom Waits to cover, she wanted to get away from the sex symbol status, and be taken seriously as singer, similar to Sinead O'connor with the shaved head. Moreover, I like it less now that I realize it's a cover. *logs off to go listen to the original version*
auralpoison
The Ramones version of "I Don't Wanna Grow Up" is pretty good. Bruce does "Jersey Girl". Screamin' Jay does "Heartattack & Vine". They're all pretty decent. Rod Stewart performs "Downtown Train" . . . um, passably. It won't make your ears bleed.
mouse
i know this will totally peg me as the biggest nerd ever, but i heard moxy fruvous' version of "jockey full of bourbon" before i ever heard the original. it's actually...not terrible.

i came in here to ask who else hates katy perry? if you don't know who i'm talking about, for the love of god DO NOT google her. save yourself the pain and fury. i just found out about her tonight and i think she bothers me more than spencer pratt bothers me (YES, i have succumbed to watching the hills in weak moments online and i would LOVE to have a bustie to discuss it with but i'm pretty sure everyone else here has more self-respect than i and therefore wouldn't even be watching, SO...). and spencer pratt bothers me almost as much as george bush does.

bad people doing bad things--bad on so many levels, to themselves and to others--disguised as good. there is not much worse.
auralpoison
WORSE THAN SPENCER PRATT? How is that possible? I trust you, so I ain't looking.

I admit freely that I watch the Hills. I find it be a sort of fascinating absurdist comedy. Like a collision of two clown cars, all sweat, grease paint, & vodka/RedBull, y'know? I don't wanna look, but I HAVE to. There's not much else to do here.
pollystyrene
I don't watch The Hills- I zip past MTV any time what's on looks vaguely reality TV-ish. Pretty much the only thing I watch on there is the True Life documentaries....maybe Pimp My Ride occasionally...anyway, I've always wondered- is The Hills a reality show or fictional, or worse, a trainwrecky hybrid? From the snippets I have seen on The Soup, it's kinda hard to tell, and I mostly try to avert my eyes.
auralpoison
See, that's why I love it! There were rumours that it was scripted, but I can't imagine even a third grader writing that poorly. It's the epitome of bad tv. The trials & tribulations of pretty, pampered, privileged, pinheaded girls in LA. They shop, they have lunch, they club, they occasionally work, they are oblivious to anything outside their little bubble of the world: They *are* the height of ridiculous DRAMA. And it's funny as fuck. The sextape debacle, the barely articulate arguments, Brody "Asshat" Jenner, Spencer's crazy flip/flop sister, the pregnant pauses, Jen Bunney's turd-stirring, Bobby-Justin mocking, etc, etc. I think one of the things that amuses me most is that Lauren/Whitney's LA office is right next door to the old Babeland LA on Melrose. So it's like the Hills + sextoys = YEA!

I also think it reminds me of being that age when you may be old enough to drink, but you're still a teen inside. All of the drama, intrigue, & outright bitchiness of that time. Except all my friends weren't as dumb as the Hills people. Just a couple of them. Kim, Christie, Paige, Amy, Amy, etc. These were *my* Audrinas, Heidis, Laurens, Los, & Whitneys. I learned a lot about what *not* being a feminist is about from those women & I hope they are well wherever they are.

I actually read some diatribe this morning about how Spencer & Heidi are trying to eat our brains. I'd post it, but the guy had a wit that was like a dull rubber spoon. I'd have done a much better job than he. But then I am a verbal ninja. HAH!

ETA, I originally wrote "sexape". I think I may start calling HB that . . .
roseviolet
Mouse, I also heard the Moxy Fruvous version of "Jockey Full of Burbon" first.
Sigh. I miss Moxy Fruvous. Mostly I miss Murray Foster. Yum.
Anyway!

I have never seen The Hills. I have not allowed them to suck me in. Because once you start, you know you can't stop. Just say no to crack, y'all.
auralpoison
But it is such very, very sweet crack & it's cheap & it only takes an hour! And if I get up & leave the room for fifteen minutes, I haven't missed anything! They're still being insipid! I need something mindless once a week. Okay, twice cos I watch the Real World, too.
mouse
aw, murray was my favorite too...i never got the jian obsession. ha. nerds.

AP!! oh, man. yeah, rose, it's definitely a "trainwrecky hybrid". i think that the events are more or less true but they are nudged into place by producers, and DEFINITELY staged. the scenes always contain the girls having these supposedly spontaneous conversations that are all just awkwardly dry leading questions followed by confessional by the other party. i also heard (on NPR!) that most reality show participants are kept sleep-deprived so they're constantly emotionally raw and probably vaguely hallucinating. AWESOME.

i actually feel bad for heidi. she's remarkably spunky for someone who's so easily manipulated--every time she stands up to spencer and he makes his little bitch-face i cheer. of course, i think she's a horribly misguided person who doesn't think of much else other than herself, but considering so is everyone else on the show, i have to admire her moments of sticking up for herself--considering what she's up against. when she painted over spencer's godawful hollywood graffiti mural i almost clapped. and she gave him shit for NOT WORKING AT ALL when he was complaining she worked too much (after he'd pressured her to shadily step on toes and go for the job).

i think lauren basically means well but she's too ignorant of her privilege for it to actually matter. whitney is just BORING and privileged. i kind of love lo because she's funny and doesn't let people get away with stupid shit, but again, too overprivileged. audrina is missing some brain cells but i think she's also not consciously calculating or mean-spirited. i have no respect for any of the guys on the show, even though jason looks vaguely like my ex. stupid, stupid rich people. that's all.


the thing that i love is that it's set IN MY CITY, but it's not my city AT ALL. i've never been to any of the places they go, i'm completely oblivious to that culture. so it's fascinating to watch a scene and be like "hmmmm, i know i was in a 10-mile radius of these happenings, what was *I* doing then?"
auralpoison
For the love of Mike. I thought I'd take Mouse's advice & avoid Katy Perry. But then, like a big dummy, I checked my MySpace. Lo & behold, her video for "I Kissed a Girl" (Not the Sobule song) just dropped. And again, like a big dummy that touches the hot stove . . . I got burned. That shit is awful! "Ur So Gay" is just . . . I cannot even begin to apply my vast vocabulary to describe the suck. Save yourselves the torture.
neurotic.nelly
Oh the horror...
auralpoison
Y'know, I've been meaning to comment on that, N.N. I kept seeing Speed Racer promos & wondered who played Trixie. I looked it up on IMDb & was horrified to see the once svelte Ricci had turned into just another bobble head. WTF? She provided a healthy body image for so long!
neurotic.nelly
i know, the once bodaciously healthy ricci has finally cracked under hollywoods pressure to be "just another bobble head". she is so over.
hellotampon
The woman has an eating disorder. She's even been very open about it. I hardly think that's the same thing as "cracking under pressure to be thin." She can't help it. It's a disease. I doubt she became a "bobblehead" on purpose... you guys sound like it's a deliberate betrayal or something.
lilacwine13
Yikes, I hope Ricci is getting help for her disorder, I wonder if she had a relapse.


I actually googled Katy Perry because I was curious if she really is that bad and wow, she's even worse than I imagined. Awful is the right word to describe her "music."

auralpoison
"Deliberate betrayal". Whatever. This is the Gossip thread. Suck it up.

I am well aware that she had/has an eating disorder. It pisses me off that her eating disorder makes her more marketable. THAT'S FUCKED UP! What kind of message is being sent by endorsing her illness? She needs to take time off to be well, but if she does that she may have no career. Women aren't given the chances men are. Robert Downey Jr PASSED OUT in a strange family's child's bed. Yet he's the star of a Hollywood summer blockbuster. Do you think Christina has the same chance?
neurotic.nelly
i didn't know she had an eating disorder, per se, but i guess it is obvious. well, this makes more sense: ricci's thinformation. she's a thinspriation to proud anorexics everywhere (tongue in cheek). i do hope she gets better though.

"Women aren't given the chances men are. Robert Downey Jr PASSED OUT in a strange family's child's bed. Yet he's the star of a Hollywood summer blockbuster. Do you think Christina has the same chance?"
WOW, this is the world we live in, huh? Damn shame.
