Micaela Schaefer Dismissed From Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

Micaela Schaefer

Our favorite red carpet attention seeker Micaela Schaefer was thrown out of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin Autumn/Winter 2013 Fashion Tent for apparently being too scantily clad for event organizers. Seriously? Have they not seen her other outifts? Let’s flashback to her outfit in support of Germany for EURO 2012. Now that’s an outfit that would garner getting kicked out. So the photos above are from the night when she was escorted out and below are photos from today where it looks like she toned it down a little and went for a little less slutty look. Micaela, don’t let those haters get you down, keep on keeping the red carpet spicy and minimally clothed! OW!!

South Beach: Candice Swanepoel Hits Walgreens While Walking Her Dog!

Candice Swanepoel walking her dog in South Beach, Florida

I guess Candice Swanepoel is still on vacation as she was spotted cruising around South Beach with her lucky bastard dog. The wildly popular Victoria’s Secret Model was looking very fashionable wearing a bandana and an Iron Maiden tee-shirt as she was seen hitting up a local Walgreens to pick up a few items. Candice needs to learn something from fellow South Beach resident Claudia Romani & run all her errands while wearing a bikini.

In case you missed our last Candice post featuring her dog, here’s the photo…

Here are a couple photos from a new shoot for VSX:

Shanina Shaik Models Bikinis: VS Swim 2013 Catalogue

Shanina Shaik VS Swim 2013

Beautiful Aussie supermodel hottie Shanina Shaik shows off her rockin’ bod in this year’s VS Swim catalogue. Shanina has walked the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the past couple of years so she’s likely due for a push. Since we don’t know much about Shanina (her mother is of Lithuanian heritage, while her father has Pakistani roots), here’s a snippet from her Wiki:

Shaik dislikes talking about her participation in Make Me a Supermodel in interviews. She has expressed that it does not fare well for models to be attached to a reality show, but also stated that she does not regret being on the show, since she met her boyfriend, American model Tyson Beckford, while filming in 2008. She has stated that if she were not modeling, she would study child psychology. [Wiki]

Genlux Magazine and this month’s cover girl Kristin Chenoweth celebrated the opening of the new bar, Riviera, 31 held at The Sofitel in Los Angeles.

After appearing in a couple episodes of FX’s Sons of Anarchy in 2012, look for Ashley to star in Scary Movie 5. Celebrities to appear in the film as themselves include Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Mike Tyson, and Kendra Wilkinson. Look for the film in theaters on April 19th.

A quick look at the headlines around the NBA

Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

The playoffs in the NFL are at it’s apex but I still try to keep up with what’s going with the NBA so i’m trying to run through the main topics at least once a week. My Mavs are having a bad season but recent success has me believing that they can contend for a playoff spot even though that’s still further out. Let’s take a look at what’s going on right now.

Out in the east coast the Miami Heat have been struggling amid lots of controversy, particularly the playing time/shot selection for Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The Heat (4-6 in the last 10 game) have caught the attention of my fans because of their inability to find offensive rhythm when it matters most. It’s known that everything goes through LeBron primarily but how much should Wade and Bosh complain that they aren’t getting their looks/playing time? It’s a very long basketball season so every team has their ups and downs but many fans are wondering whether or not it’s a bigger problem. Miami still hasn’t given up the top spot in the east (Knicks have slipped a little) and the Heat won’t be judged until the postseason so don’t hit panic button on them just yet.

Panic button has definitely been hit out in Los Angeles where Bryan’s Lakers have been struggling to find exactly what their team is capable of doing. Last night the Lakers finally looked like the team they were supposed to be from the start against the Bucks but these last two victories have been against bad teams. Key stretch coming up for the Lakers as they face a few of the top teams in league. What i’m looking at is how the team will perform once Pau Gasol, who has been a ghost, comes back into the line up. Gasol seems to be a terrible fit for the D’antoni system so many people are wondering whether or not he’ll be traded before the deadline is up towards the end of next month.

Like I mentioned previously, the eastern conference has looked tighter at the top with the Heat and Knicks struggling a bit as of late. The Pacers and Nets (quietly 9-1 under their new coach) have inched their way to the top of the standings and even the Rose-less Bulls are within range. The race can only get better as the season goes on. Out west it’s all Thunder and Clippers (dealing with the Paul injury very well) fighting for the top spot and the best overall record in the league. I can see the Spurs making a push to contend for the top spot but right now Durant is too good so my money is on the Thunder.

BREAKING!! Alessandra Ambrosio Picks Up Anja At School!

 Alessandra Ambrosio Picking Anja Up From School

Looks like somebody had a rough day at school! These were snapped yesterday afternoon as Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio was seen picking up a very tired-looking Anja from her school in Santa Monica.

Believe it or not, but earlier in the day, the Brazilian bombshell was seen rocking a pair of Victoria’s Secret’s trademark angel wings during lingerie photo shoot at a Miami Beach mansion. I guess she flew back home later in the day just in time to pick up Anja! Now, that’s what I call a working mom!!

Brazilian beauty Alessandra Ambrosio rocks her Victoria's Secret Angel wings and revealing lingerie, for a photo shoot at a Miami Beach mansion. Ambrosio, an Angel for the lingerie company since 2004, recently wore the coveted 'Fantasy Bra' for the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Heath Ledger’s Parents: “We Miss Him Everyday.”

“It has been an extremely difficult five years, as not a day goes by when we don’t feel the immense loss of Heath.”[HP]

Five years after his death, the parents of Heath Ledger are giving their first interview on life without their son to Australia’s New Idea magazine. His parents Sally and Kim tell the magazine that the loss of Ledger has expectedly left an indelible void in their lives. “It has been an extremely difficult five years, as not a day goes by when we don’t feel the immense loss of Heath.”

Before he died, however, he was father to then toddler Matilda, now aged 7, with whom the couple maintains a close personal relationship. “Matilda is indeed very much like her dad – she has long limbs and similar features,” Sally said. “However, she also possesses the beauty of her mamma – lucky girl.”

Megan Fox: “I Feel Powerless, Devalued.”

“I wasn’t anything. I was an image. I was a picture. I was a pose.” [HP]

Megan Fox doesn’t want to be objectified as a sex symbol anymore because it makes her feel “powerless” and “devalued.” But she’s on the cover of the new Esquire . . . posing as an objectified sex symbol. Um, okay.

Fox reveals to the magazine that being a mother hasn’t changed the fact that she feels bullied. Yes, bullied. Here’s what she says:

“I don’t think people understand. They all think we should shut the f–k up and stop complaining because you live in a big house or you drive a Bentley. So your life must be so great. What people don’t realize is that fame, whatever your worst experience in high school, when you were being bullied by those ten kids in high school, fame is that, but on a global scale, where you’re being bullied by millions of people constantly.”

What say you? Does she have the right to be complaining about people online and in the media?

Jennifer Lawrence Praises Meryl, Slams LiLo

“Hey idiots, it’s a quote from a movie, and it’s Meryl Streep.”[HP]

Relax, Hunger Games fans. This controversy won’t ruin your Lady Beloved of the Slinging Arrows fortunes in showbiz. As for Lindsay Lohan, well, that’s another story.

When Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress at the Golden Globes a few nights ago she declared her pride by noting, “I beat Meryl!” She was, of course, referring to the Greatest Living American Actor (sorry, Daniel Day Lewis, you’re British).

While most viewers still in possession of their faculties understood Lawrence’s comment as praise, a few others (like Lindsay Lohan) thought she meant it as victory over Meryl Streep.

To clarify, Lawrence told David Letterman while on his couch last night that she was quoting The First Wives Club: “It was a quote from First Wives’ Club. Bette Midler was talking about a globe, I can’t believe nobody’s ever done it before. She said, ‘Look what it says: I Beat Meryl.’ It was so perfect, and I said it, and I had no idea Lindsay Lohan was going to take it to the Twitterverse — is that what it’s called? I’m not on Twitter. But Twitter is very upset.”

She then extrapolated on her idolatry of Meryl Streep, saying “One time someone was introducing me to Bill Maher, and I saw Meryl Streep walk into the room, and I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher’s face and said, ‘Not now, Bill!,’ and I just stared at Meryl Streep.”

It’s a common fantasy, J.Law. Trust us.

LUV: Film Review

85841_gal
Visit the film’s official website!

I remember after the release of Precious and I watched with somewhat bemused shock at the bevy of criticism levied upon the film by African American film critics and social commentators who slammed the film for glorifying every oppressive and ugly ‘trope of blackness’ (their words, not mine). Since I am not African American, I could only appreciate from a distance what some vocal critics were decrying as the upholding of ghetto stereotypes.

That was in mid 2009 – a few months after the nation had elected its first African American president. Four years later we have reelected the same president and are confronted with the challenge of redefining “tropes of blackness”. Does the ascendance of Obama mean that little black boys everywhere now know they can grow up to be more than basketball layers or rappers? Or that society now expects much, much more from them?

That is a loaded and difficult question, and it gets a little bit of redeeming lip service in the new film LUV which stars the rapper Common and newcomer Michael Rainey as his nephew. Common plays an ex-con named Vincent who takes it upon himself to teach his 11-year-old nephew Woody the ways of the world. More specifically, he directs him on the process of becoming a man.

Vincent wants to make good on his freedom and decides to show his nephew how to be a man by letting him observe the launch of his new business. Unfortunately, things don’t work out and he’s drawn back to pretty crimes, which surprises exactly no one. Turns out, he isn’t quite the man he thought he was.

The movie means well, and for that it gets credit. Regrettably, it’s far too clichéd to do anything other than reinforce the very stereotypes it tries to defy. Which makes me wonder if the real tragedy for Woody and others like him is not the limits of expectations, but the transfer of unresolved burdens from previous generations. Which is kind of what I thought Precious was all about anyway.
