What follows is a not really at all edited email exchange between two members of the Slop Culture crew after listening to Britney's latest. Er. Deal with it?
Ellee: PSSSH, WHO’S RADIOHEAD?
Sharon: Agreed, for the moment, at least. This is a party record and I’m MORE EXCITED ABOUT IT than Radiohead. May the world JUDGE ME.
Don't put me in there.
Samatha Who cares? I do, a little. Christina Applegate is hard not to like, concussed and cuuute in her hospital gown and curls. She wakes from her Sleeping Cutie slumber with pursed lips and retrograde amnesia. “Who are you?” She coos to her estranged parents. And that’s when the premise of the pilot is revealed: nobody gets it! Pooor, amnestic Samantha.
No, it's not the concept for a VH1 fakereality show. It actually happened.
I have been inexplicably devoted to Ashlee ever since she arrived on the scene, riding on Jessica's infamous coatails in her black Chucks and weird tutus. Watching her go from shamed lip-syncher to Gwen wanna-be to Petey's girl friday has brought me endless--seriously, endless--amounts of pleasure.
Next time for sure! Down and Under! What me worry? It's my party. Love you long time. You're the most. Let's not and say we did....
Behold the many covers of W magazine’s Art Issue. I think they’re genius. A real pop-culture punch in your beautiful face, Richard Prince. Of the covers, creator Prince says:
Heidi and the Spices
Meanwhile... the Spice Girl's Greatest Hits album will drop November 14th exclusively at Victoria's Secret stores and official Web site, as well as iTunes. This is not so bizarre as the Spice Girls will be performing at the 2007 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. What will they wear? Not the ugly diamond bra, I hope.
Before (beautiful! boobs!) After (funny looking! bosom!)
What happened? What happened? How can something that costs $4.5 million dollars look so bad? Notice the before picture, circa 2006. Notice model Karolina Kurkova, Victoria’s Secret vet, in her $6.5 million Hearts on Fire Diamond Fantasy Bra, dazzeling.
Bourdain = bleh Donuts = yeh!According to New York Post's Page Six, "Kitchen Confidential" cook Anthony Bourdain had this to say about Rachael Ray and Dunkin' Donuts in the upcoming issue of Outside magazine:
"And she's endorsing Dunkin' Donuts. It's like endorsing crack for kids.""I'm not a very ethical guy.
Old news, new interviews
Of the Radar interview with Spencer Pratt — entitled "Hey, Big Spencer" — I actually found the bit about his grandmother endearing:
But, seriously, doesn't your family feel kind of embarrassed that your general image is "sleazebag"?My grandma, who is 81, was at my birthday dinner last night, and she was saying in her whole life—which has been miserable for the most part—the one thing that has made her happiest is getting to read the tabloids, watch The Hills, and be a part of this weird pop culture phenomenon.
What is real? What is fake? What is life? Or death? Or feeling comatose???? I don't even know anymore!!!!One of these is supposedly the official cover art for Britney Spears' upcoming LP. The other one is something I made in photoshop while I was blacked out.
IT'S THE BLACKOUT CHALLENGE... I mean, if your shitty editorial computer has photoshop, Sharon.
Why, Maxim, pilfer your unsexy picks from the likes of (iconic sexy-city symbol) Sarah Jessica Parker? Who, for being 42, doesn’t look so bad in her skyscraping Manolos. Look at her bend, her abdomen curled like a slender Botticelli. She is petite, she is pliable, she is a couture canvass, with sweeping vintage-frock-inspired smears.
Aw shucks, they are sooo cute together. But this official photo for Stetson's new cologne ad campaign is a touch reminiscent of LifeCall's '87 medical alarm ad campaign, in which Mrs. Fletcher, from her helpless position on the floor, screams: "I've fallen, and I can't get up!" All this, stirs fantasies in my head of Gisele to Brady: "I'm writhing and I can't stop, Brady!"
Drew Carey as dirty as Bob Barker? Joy! Free preview, bitches, of the new era of The Price Is Right. The shenanigans begin Monday.
One wonders: why Tanorexia? Why silicone? Why stomachs shaped like Twix? Why hair gel, pommade, and pokies that look like rumpled candy pumpkins? Why shoulder pads shaped like bat wings? And expressions so dour?
...When Scarlet Johanson looks so archangelic and good in normal looking stuff.
