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 likely photobombed Kim’s ass instead.

This weeks stories & pics
“In addition to Kristen's mystery male companion looking suspiciously like her former flame, the vehicle in question appeared to be a black Acura—the same model as the one owned by Sanders.”
Damn! Lickityclit busted!
Jessica Alba revealed brutal corset regime! (celebrity.uk.msn.com).
“It was brutal; it’s not for everyone. I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it.”
It certainly worked a treat!
Here’s Jessica giving some pokies for Net-A-Porter magazine (hotcelebshome.com).
“Riri posted a photo last night getting her hair done for a photoshoot, with nothing by a towel loosely covering her upper half. And she does certainly appear somewhat ‘fuller’ than her bikini vacation pics from two days before. They [sic] difference does have some claiming ‘boob job’.”
Which VH1 goes on to clearly refute by plotting a timeline. I caught that first in the Yahoo post VH1 attributes as the source, and I’d say that sparked the rumour rather than RiRi’s Instagrams per se, showing again that Yahoo knows only too well the headline SEO value of an ‘oops’ or ‘boob job’ headline.
This is not the first time this rumour has arose. Late last year it was “reported” that RiRi was considering a boob job to please Chris Brown (gossipcop.com, October 2012). It just goes to show that like the 50 Shades role for Emma Watson, a rumour can, and often does linger on, ready to leap up with only the slightest encouragement well after it is squashed.
Here’s a bigger copy of the Instagram piccie in question anyhow, and a couple more posted at the same time which seem to instantly refute the rumour too: 1 | 2 (hotcelebshome.com).
Yep, as you will know if you are a regular reader, I’m pretty keen on that last piccie. Hell, and here’s one of the booty just for luck.
Aside from her boob job, RiRi hit out at long-time rival Ciara on Instagram (mtv.co.uk), suggesting that Ciara allows the media to “play her”.
“She don’t be shame tho? How she let em play her like that everytime?? It’s like, ‘yea I know you’re here to about (insert album title) but we wanna talk about a more relevant topic… Rihanna!!!”
Ouch! Hey, they’ve both had nude piccies leaked; it could time for some more now the fued is back on!
Christina Aguilera gave some boobage at the Time 100 Gala in NYC (imgcelebs.info)…
And made a new friend (onenewspage.us).
“I’m a big fan of yours,” [Girls creator Lena Dunham] tells Christina. “You’re amazing.”
Kanye West had to cover Kim Kardashian’s see-through modesty (dailymail.co.uk) and…
Kris & Kourtney got photobombed in London (celebrity.uk.msn.com).
Hey, that’s just how we que over here.
Gwyneth Paltrow went commando for Iron Man 3 premiere (egotastic.com) …
Wanting you to know that she doesn’t shave down there (kellidaisy.com).
“Well, let’ just say everyone went scrambling for a razor. I work a ’70s vibe. You know what I mean?”
“Miss Paltrow, 40, received a barrage of abuse on Twitter after being awarded the crown by US magazine People, which praised her ‘timeless look’.”
Does anything ever not turn ugly on Twitter?
Gwyneth’s 70s vibe story updated.
Blimey! So that’s where Megan Fox’s negative bipolar Marilyn tattoo jumped to! And speaking of Megan…
Megan Fox “The Sharper Image” photoshoot (hotcelebshome.com).
Updated 6th September 2017.
Duchess wins damages over topless photos (bbc.co.uk).
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been awarded 100,000 euros (£92,000) in damages after a French magazine printed topless pictures of Catherine. A French court ruled the images used by Closer—taken as the couple holidayed in Provence five years ago - had been an invasion of their privacy. The royals will donate the funds to charity, the BBC understands. The judge fined Closer magazine’s editor and owner 45,000 euros—the maximum amount allowed.”
German tabloid Bild having got the royal wind up publishing a picture of Duchess of Cambridge bare bottom too (Pick of the Week, Jun., 2014).
“But one of the Dolls was intent on communicating a different message. Carmit Bachar, ‘the redhead’ from the group’s original line-up, was born with a facial deformity, in the form of a cleft lip and palate.”
What an awesomely brave woman. #Invictus
Carmit is a celebrity ambassador for OperationSmile.org that transforms lives suffering from a cleft lip or cleft palate across the globe. Visit to find out more.

Miley Cyrus’s pins were out & about in Beverley Hills (imgcelebs.info).
Adrianne Curry went for a topless dip on Instagram (hotcelebshome.com).
Arts, tech. & funnies
Porn impacts sexual behavior less than you might think, study suggests (huffingtonpost.com).
“Pornography is not as big and bad a wolf as we thought it was, and maybe we should focus on other factors. It explains a portion of sexual behavior, but it is modest,” Gert Martin Hald, a clinical psychologist at the University of Copenhagen and the study‘s lead author, told HealthDay.
Sex tape App promises to keep your homemade porn safe (thesun.co.uk).
“It says only participating parties will have password access and if one person deletes it, the whole thing is binned forever.”
10 days of beard growth is the key to attracting women, researchers claim (dailymail.co.uk).
“The study revealed women found the same man more attractive with a 10-day heavy beard than clean-shaven.”
It sure made Ke$ha cock-a-hoop! (popcrush.com).
The public will question whether this is art, Turner Prize 2013 judge admits (telegraph.co.uk).
“The public will question whether the Turner Prize shortlist really is art, judges have admitted, as they reveal a stuffed dead dog, a headless drummer and the first ‘live encounter’ on this year’s list.”
Is that not the raison d'être—or at least the selling point—of the Turner Prize, indeed, of conceptual art in general?
“In 2011 [artist Ai Weiwei] was arrested by his country’s communist regime and held for 81 days. They said he was endangering the security of the state. This show gives an account of those days and, in the hands of director James Macdonald, does so with quirky inventiveness.”
Why the internet didn’t freak out about CISPA, the SOPA sequel (news.yahoo.com).
“Unlike SOPA which was widely condemned in the tech community, CISPA has the support of some major tech companies for the bill’s measures meant to help them fight hackers.”
Dutchman arrested in Spamhaus DDoS attack (krebsonsecurity.com).
“A 35-year-old Dutchman thought to be responsible for launching what’s been called ‘the largest publicly announced online attack in the history of the Internet’ was arrested in Barcelona on Thursday by Spanish authorities.”
Google Glass details revealed (digitalartsonline.co.uk) but…
“Google Glass is a headset worn like glasses that has a projector for beaming images into the wearer's right eye, creating an illusion equivalent to viewing ‘a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away’.”
Ubiquitous tech blogger Robert Scoble has already had his say though (tech.uk.msn.com).
“Scoble spent two weeks trying out Google Glass, using them during presentations and passing through airports letting hundreds of people try them on. During this time, Scoble was surprised at how social the gadget was, compared with a mobile phone, with only one man asking him to remove the glasses when speaking to him.”
Yeah, it’s a lovely sounding piece of kit, but it’s a camera too; I don’t think I’d be comfortable chatting away with someone with one on either, much as I’m not if I suspect someone has a webcam on in their home when I’m around. Then again, this is perhaps the uncomfortable nature of the age we live in.
I’m not the only one thinking that; indeed, perhaps as a form of preemptive defence it’s already spawned it’s own meme ahead of its release: Don’t be a Glasshole! (news.yahoo.com).
“Developers will also be unable to use the device’s camera with the screen off, to address concerns that pictures could be taken more secretly.”
