Pick of the week
Page: prev. | 1 | next
Here's my grab-bag pick of last weeks best celebrity gossip, scandals, arts, entertainment sexiness, & just plain quirky stories and pictures. A weekly round-up for busy pervs! There's pictures—reading optional.
Disclaimer: Any comments I make are purely satirical, totally without foundation, and are likely just surfing on that pop-exploitation riff like "Spring Breakers" too.

This weeks stories & pics
Emma Watson for Fifty Shades of Grey after all, or just hacktivists foolin' with a studio wish list? (gossipcop.com).
"… Anonymous hackers leaked documents from German studio Constantin Film, with one page allegedly saying Watson is attached to star in the highly-anticipated movie."
Still with no director named for the film adaption, casting stuck at the wish list stage, and Watson's repeated trenchant denials it seems hacktivism had to jump the shark at some stage, and I guess this was it.

Dead link. Apologies.
You can catch Nicki's Elle photoshoot here (gotceleb.com).
Lindsay Lohan forgave Justin Bieber for Instagram cheap shot (mirror.co.uk).
Maybe she's just only too aware of what it's like having a bullseye on her back in the public arena, or maybe she remembers being a narky badly behaved teenager herself. Or maybe she's just showing a long-coming streak of latent professionalism by letting her rep diplomatically reply rather than firing back on her Blackberry while peeing pure vodka on the throne at 3 a.m. Maybe with her impending court case she couldn't care less, or is considering a narky 19 year old a better bet for a mentor than Charlie Sheen.
Okay, who's Nicole having a pop at at there? You can read the full article here (independent.co.uk).
Rihanna showed off her nipple piercing for Comic Relief (metro.co.uk) …
And because she doesn't need to do that sort of thing Jessie J had her head shaved for Comic Relief (dailymail.co.uk).
And then spent the next three hours working out at the Y over RiRi's nipple.
Kelly Brook, Keira Knightley and Lily Cole gave Captain Nemo a helluva boner! (celebrity.uk.msn.com).
Adrianne Curry gave more naked tweets.
Kimberley Garner gave Barbados some ass'tastic bikini photoshoot candids (hotcelebuzz.com).

So, okay, the first Spring Breakers reviews are in. How'd it do? (thesuperficial.com).
Los Angeles Times: "In the end, it's the strip club leer that hardens into a catatonic stare, which in its way is commentary enough for a pop-exploitation riff like ‘Spring Breakers.’"
Well, it is a Harmony Korine film, so you knew what to expect, right? No?
The Telegraph’s 2-star take (telegraph.co.uk).
"In some ways, Korine has created a mirage—a film with hugely sellable superficial appeal, but one so determined to undermine these skin-deep expectations it becomes an intentionally abortive spiral into nothing."
The Guardian’s more generous 3-out-of-5 (guardian.co.uk)
"Spring Breakers is Korine’s most technically competent and fluent movie; probably his most commercial, his funniest, perhaps even his least irritating."
Here's Rachel Korine at Spring Breakers Premiere in Los Angeles (hawtcelebs.com).
Arts, tech. & funnies
"Marina Yannakoudakis MEP, the Conservative spokesman on women's rights and in the European Parliament, remained critical of proposals despite the dropping of the ban. ‘This would be a charter for ultra-feminist interference in the way countries choose to run their media systems,’ she said."
Furore over "pornographic" New Zealand tourism logo (telegraph.co.uk, thank you Apakura).
"… an Otaki Community Board member, suggested that the curvy lines could be misinterpreted. ‘I have had feedback from the public that this 'k' image with its bent leg, at the knee, is more than mildly pornographic,' she said."
Na, I just don't see it. But I do think that the UKIP logo is more than mildly reminiscent of our local Pound Shop logo.
Erotic Pompeii goat statue arrives in the British Museum (telegraph.co.uk).
"One of Naples's most prized artworks, a statue of Pan having sex with a goat, will go on show in the British Museum's Pompeii exhibition."
Well, he was half 'n half I guess.
Trivia: The statue, "Pan And The Goat" was kept behind locked doors in the Secret Museum in Naples in the early part of the last century deemed it suitable for viewing by only a select few studious enough to place it in the context of the lingering Victorian attitudes to ancient Greco-Roman culture prevalent at the time.
Bullseye's Jim Bowen was briefly elected Pope (news.uk.msn.com).
"Anyone visiting Bowen's page on Wikipedia will have spotted an update announcing his new role as head of the Catholic church. ‘On 13 March 2013 he was elected by the conclave of cardinals to serve as Pope,’ the text read. ‘He chose the name Francis I.’"
Reckon your password is unique? The Top 25 most common passwords (networkworld.com).
‘letmein’, ‘qwerty’, and yes, ‘Monkey’ are in the top 10 list of passwords; but that's a fuckin' ape so it's no wonder you can't log-in! Anyway, if your's is on there, go change it now.
Don't think anyone would use such weak passwords? I managed to side-step into a part-time lecturer position just out of my teens at an Essex college and during the 4 years I was there you could guarantee to logon to the network with several colleagues passwords of "staff", as many nawty students did, me being one.
“@msleamichele: I was HACKED! Guess @chriscolfer and I should have known better then to make our passwords the names of our cats:)”
And if your favourite model auto posted all over your Instagram is your secret security question you might as well have just left your password “itsasecret” too.
