David Bowie, Louis Vuitton? What Is Going ON?

I don’t know what’s going on here, but I like it.

David Bowie, his gorgeous wife Iman and their sweet-as-pie daughter, Lexi have been photographed in Venice, Italy this past weekend, taking in the sights and looking like quite the chic family. Okay. Iman and Lexi have looked chic. David was shown looking like The Thin White Grump…but he’s entitled.

So.  Here we are presented with a very baroque and ornate scene–is it for a music video or is Bowie the new face of Louis Vuitton? (I’m hoping for the latter.) LV has already conjured up Bowie-esque visages with their 2013-14 Fall/Winter line:

Mixing pyramid and oval forms, the new pieces from the Louis Vuitton Ziggy collection for Fall/Winter 2013-2014 play with volume and color in a nod to the graphic motifs inspired by the work of artist Daniel Buren seen on the runway at Louis VuittonSpring/Summer 2013.

The burning coppery pink metal plays with the intense cool black ruthenium, on the Ziggy statement necklace, in a visual tribute to the Ziggy Stardust lightening strike cover of David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane album sleeve. As worn by Andreea Diaconu in the Louis Vuitton campaign.

I suppose we’ll have to wait and see…

Beyonce Pregnant With Second Child?

 

Is Blue Ivy going to be a big sister soon? Honestly. There has been no official statement regarding Beyonce’s pregnancy status, so it could all be a ruse much like Beyonce’s first pregnancy *COUGH SURROGATE COUGH*.  Here’s what we (sort of) know so far:

“…multiple sources are confirming that Beyonce is pregnant with her second child with Jay-Z. Recently the singer told ABC News that she wanted to have more kids, and wished for her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, to experience being a big sister.

 Following the Met Gala, music industry insiders said Beyonce was expecting, but she still made no announcement. After her canceled concert in Belgium, Beyonce wrote an apology note to her fans, which was posted on Facebook, noting that she was feeling better after missing the show and was ready to return to the stage.

I’m not a huge conspiracy theorist…but I am a bit when it comes to Beyonce and Jay-Z and all their media-manipulating shenanigans. (See? I even use words like ruse and shenanigans when posting about the couple. Oh, and Illuminati.) 

What about Bey’s enormous Mrs. Carter Show World Tour Sponsored By Pepsi? Cancelled? Foam bellies of all sizes? YOU tell ME.

Thoughts? Is she? Isn’t she? Let me say this about THAT: I am completely out of shits to give about surrogacy, adoption, water births, mountain cliff births, back yard in the kiddie pool births–do WHATEVER. Just don’t lie about it and say how magical and golden and how windswept your hair was with the final PUSH, because that’s just crap.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this gem from our girl, Wendy Williams from 2011. Watch it all the way through.


Ohforpitysake.

Halle Berry is Pregnant Again

 

 

You know, normally we’d be all “Hey! Congrats on your pregnancy!”, but I can’t really bring myself to say those words given the fact that it’s Halle Berry, I’m struggling.  Her daughter Nahla has seen and heard (ALLEGEDLY?) some awful crap in her little 5-year old life.

Halle’s boyfriend, Olivier Martinez is the baby’s father, who got into a fistfight with Nahla’s father ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry last Thanksgiving Day.  Yeah. Awesome.  Child Protective Services were even involved in that mess.

Listen.  I’m not going to throw stones (is that glass I hear shattering?), but Halle’s made some questionable choices when it comes to the men in her life.  She’s admitted that her mom was an abused wife, and that Halle herself has been allegedly abused by her former boyfriends or husbands. It’s been reported many times that Wesley Snipes beat Halle so badly that she has been living with a busted eardrum since way back in the early 90’s.  Things only went downhill after that episode:

[Halle Berry’s next relationship was with], MLB star, David Justice. Married 1992, separated 1996, divorced 1997. Berry told Parade Magazine that she had severe depression and thoughts of suicide after her divorce from Justice. In spite of the fact that Berry accused Justice of battering and had a string of restraining orders against him related to domestic violence.

Husband number two, R&B singer, Eric Benet. Married 2001, separated 2003, divorced 2005. Benet admitted to at least ten extramarital affairs in the two year marriage, including affairs with two of Berry’s closest friends. According to People Magazine.

Halle then met model Gabriel Aubrey on a photo shoot for Versace in 2005, resulting in the birth of their daughter Nahla in 2008.  The couple split in 2010 after rumors of  Gabriel’s cheating on Halle.  It has not been an easy split, given the custody battle over their daughter, physical altercations and criminal charges involved.

Two days ago, Halle and Olivier (and poor Nahla) were involved in a paparazzi crush at LAX while heading toward their car. We have the video, via latimes.com.

Here’s my question. Why does this keep happening to Halle and her daughter? A crap-load of celebs (more interesting and famous, dare I say, than Halle Berry) somehow manage to get through LAX without a complete clusterfucation blowing up.  I hear-tell that she (read: her people) have been known to alert these gnats with cameras of her whereabouts and to create this kind of mess.  In other words, Ms. Berry is rumored to be quite the attention-seeker…and how can that be healthy for a child?  And now we’ve got another one on the way?

get that Halle spends a little time at battered women’s shelters. I wish she’d take some of the advice she doles out.

I fear this is only going to get worse, my friends.
