Looks more like a promotional stunt than anything else. She’s doing a lot of promotional shit for MTV’s upcoming 2012 Music Awards next weekend & she’s dropping her fourth studio album, Red later this fall on October 22.
As you guys know, the media has a long-running love affair with Taylor Swift, so she can sleep with 10-15 dudes a year, write shit about them in her crappy songs & then turn around and say cute things in interviews. That’s mainly why each night we hope & pray that this chick’s true colors show one of these days so that we can finally taste the feeling of sweet vindication.
These latest photos were snapped earlier this afternoon as Taylor was seen walking around Manhattan wearing short-shorts & carrying her geetaar. So, is this part of some photo shoot or is she trying really hard to look cool & edgy. Plus, wasn’t it really hot in the city today to be rocking a jacket?!?

Cheryl Cole arrived at the BBC Radio 1 Studios in London wearing an arm sling after having been involved in a car accident in L.A. earlier in the week while out with “friend” will.i.am, and by “friend” you know we mean that he’s getting a piece of that whenever she’s in town. In reality the title of the post should read: Hottest “Wearing Arm Sling After Car Accident Involvement Likely Due To Mishap While Performing Freaky Sexual Act”. The two were reportedly starving after having been working all day and were on their way to McDonalds when the accident occurred. From our Bastardly perspective, it simply that they were hungry after hours of tantric sex with some recording on the side. Cheryl’s currently promoting latest single “Under The Sun”.
Matthew McConaughey may have looked perfectly buff and chiseled in this summer’s male stripper hit Magic Mike but he’s certainly working overtime now to look anything but stripper perfect. Check out the latest photo of him snapped just days ago outside of a New York City hotel where he looks almost shockingly gaunt and rail skinny. McConaughey has lost 30 pounds thus far for his upcoming role as Ron Woodroof, a Texas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986, in the upcoming film Dallas Buyer’s Club.
McConaughey recently told Larry King, “I should not look healthy by the time I’m doing (the role). I just kinda dared myself. I haven’t been this light since I was in the ninth grade. I’m kind of looking at it as sort of a cleanse, it’s a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse. I’m drinking a lot of tea, and things like that.”
“Many pundits were merciless with their assessment of the speech…CNN’s Piers Morgan called it “very awkward,” “embarassing,” and “damaging to Mitt Romney.” He added, “He came off like the slightly crazy uncle at the Christmas party who’s had one too many sherries and doesn’t quite get it.”[THR]
Well, kids, looks like grandpa has to go away for a while? Where’s he going? Oh, a nice place for old folks where he can relax all day and sit in the sun, enjoying the distant bark of dogs and the empty space next to him . . . which is apparently occupied by the Leader of the Free World.
If you weren’t aware, legendary Hollywood director and actor Clint Eastwood made an utter fool of himself and the Romney campaign as the featured “surprise” guest at the Republican National Convention when he gave a speech where he debated an invisible Barack Obama seated on a stool next to him. The crowd sort of laughed (uncomfortably) and you could tell that the Romney camp was sweating bullets as the pundits declared the whole thing a “disaster” but no one looked worse for the wear than old Clint himself who, let’s just say it, is getting on in years and seem to have lost the lucidity required of a public figure. Many are blaming the Romney team for tarnishing Eastwood’s image by inviting him to give an overtly political speech that felt more like lunatic ramblings of a man with little to no grip on reality. It was like trying to placate a racist grandparent who suddenly came into contact with your Guatemalan landscaper.
The other theory doing the rounds is that Eastwood (who is openly pro-choice and pro-gay marriage) is really just a liberal in conservative clothing and was planted by Hollywood to make a mockery of the Republicans’ proceedings in Tampa. If this is true, somebody give him the Oscar: NOW.
It’s never a good sign when a movie is deemed so unmarketable that it doesn’t even have its own website. It’s also (and let me be frank here) never a good sign if that movie happens to feature Jessica Biel in the starring role. It’s not that she’s a bad actress, really, it’s just that any movie she features in seems to be either highly mediocre (Valentine’s Day) or so escapist and puerile (Total Recall) that it bombs its opening weekend. To be frank, I’m kind of amazed that she still gets offered parts in films and hasn’t fully transitioned to being Justin Timberlake’s tour manager. Must be those cheek bones that keep getting her work.
Her latest attempt at cinematic glory is called The Tall Man – and no, it has nothing to do with either Conan O’Brien or a random figure from the NBA. It’s a wannabe horror flick that has the very bad fortune of releasing alongside the infinitely superior suspense and horror movie, The Possession, this weekend. The movie tracks the sudden kidnappings in the Pacific Northwest where a “Tall Man” is snatching up young kids and nobody believes that it could be Bigfoot. A local nurse named Julia (Biel) who thinks the stories are hogwash turns a blind eye to the disappearances until her son goes missing. Then she’s forced in to a bizarre and strange parallel universe where children go missing and skulky, oversized figures draw their parents into a web of fanciful nightmares and endless chases in the mind.
There are too many bizarre twists and turns to take the movie seriously, which is a pity for Biel who actually does make a discernible attempt to act and give a credible performance. But even her beauty cannot overtake the sheer weight of the absurdity of the whole thing. The kids aren’t the only ones that end up vanishing – Julia herself is lost in half a dozen plotlines and story twists that are never sufficiently developed, explained, or explored.
Alec Baldwin’s personal yoga instructor-turned personal sex-toy & temporary wife Hilaria Thomas was seen taking her lil’ pooch for a walk in SoHo yesterday afternoon. As you guys know, Hilaria used to live way, way uptown & then relocated to Alec’s sweet spot in lower Manhattan after getting him to pound her from behind during one of their private Yoga sessions. Yes ladies, it’s that fucking easy! If you got the body & personality, take a stab at the endless stream of deep pockets running around a major city near you! OW!
Well, Hong Kong-flavored Angela Yeung Wing, who also goes by the somewhat easier, but slightly fobby nickname Angelababy, is at the 69th Venice Film Festival promoting the martial arts action flick “Tai Chi O.” The film, which is shot back to back with its sequel, Tai Chi Hero, is produced by Jet Li & directed by Stephen Fung. Check the trailer below:
More about 23-year-old hottie Angelababy:
Angela Yeung Wing (born February 28, 1989), popularly known by her stage name Angelababy, is a model and actress from Hong Kong. Her stage name came from the combination of her legal given name “Angela” and her nickname her family gave her “Baby”.
She also starred in the Japanese web drama Tweet Love Story in July 2010. The basis of the drama is audience participation via Twitter; four of the scenes contain a missing line spoken by Angelababy that are later completed from selected viewer tweets with the hash tag #tweetlovestory. [Source]
Wearing a simple white top & short-shorts, “Glee” star Lea Michele was spotted grabbing her weekly groceries at a local Bristol Farms store. I guess when you’re drowning crazy amounts of fame, you can easily delegate monotonous tasks like grocery shopping to hired assistants, so it’s nice to see that Lea Michele dabbles in the everyday tasks that all of us robots take for granted.
And for those of you bastards who missed it the last time, there’s glimmers of life following her stint on “Glee.” Lea’s biggest project for the big screen to date is the upcoming animated feature “Dorothy of Oz,” which hits theaters sometime in 2013. She obviously scored the lead, but she’s accompanied by big doggs like Dan Aykroyd (Scarecrow), James Belushi (Cowardly Lion), Kelsey Grammer (Tin Man), Martin Short (Wicked Jester) and Patrick Stewart (Tugg). It’s a $60 million, so it’ll definitely give Lea some cash to spend while she decides on her next big, non-animated project!
The Iceman is the upcoming film based on the life of mafia hitman Richard Kuklinski. The film makes its debut at the Venice Film Festival and stars Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, James Franco and Ray Liotta. Look for it to also show at the Toronto International Film Festival. No word on official wide release.
These were the ladies who hit the red carpet for a short film screening and cocktail party for Recipe: How To Mend A Broken Heart and Just Three Words held at The W Hotel in Hollywood. Recipe: How To Mend A Broken Heart stars Danielle De Luca and as IMDb writes its tagline is “A woman uses an unusual method to fix her recently broken heart.” In Just Three Words, this film stars college students sharing one thing they’ve learned in college using only three words.
