Singer Adele graces the cover of the October issue of British Vogue. In an interview with Christa D’Souza, she jokes that she is “the face of full-fat Coke” and discusses fashion, her the future of her career and diet fads. She said:

I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs and how it wears them down. And I don’t want that in my life. I have insecurities, of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”

Timeless talent, elegance and beauty--combined with a salty vocabulary.

Vogue UK Editor Alexandra Shulman stated,

“Our cover girl, Adele, has won over the world with her heartbreaking voice and her ability to seem as if she very much herself…(her) very normality, her down-to-earth determination not to compromise herself, has become as much a part of her USP (unique selling point) as, for example, Madonna’s constant, deliberate reinvention.”

During her appearance over the weekend on Jonathan Ross‘ talk show, Adele hinted that she may very well be recording the theme for the next James Bond movie. When asked by Ross when she was going to start recording her next album, Adele let the news slip out.

‘Well, this is actually a theme. Wow, that’s really giving something away.’ The host replied: ‘A theme?’ before humming the signature James Bond music. A blushing Adele replied with, ‘It’s a concept. One song’.

I guess we’ll have to wait for some official news, but I think she is a fantastic candidate for the next Bond theme. I expect a Tina Turner or Shirley Bassey-like theme. Anything is better than that forgettable hack-job Jack White and Alicia Keys did for the last 007 film.

Those ‘GLEE’ Kids (Especially Lea Michele) Ruin a Completely Perfect David Bowie Song for Fashion’s Night Out



Hey guess what?  I do believe that whiny, cry-singing snip Lea Michele may have just squeaked by Paltrow in my own little “I Loathe That Bitch” competition.

Jaaayzus.   Now they’re on sacred ground.  DAVID BOWIE?  Honestly. Oh, I know it’s for Fashion’s Night Out, which is really just a nice way of saying “SPEND YOUR MONEY ON EXPENSIVE CLOTHING, but we’ll donate 40% of the proceeds from these t-shirts to the NYC AIDS Foundation!”.   Whatever, Anna Wintour.

Q: What is Fashion’s Night Out?

A: Fashion’s Night Out is an unprecedented global initiative created in 2009 in a partnership between American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping.

Q: What are the hours of FNO?

A: The official hours are 6 — 11 P.M. on September 8, 2011. Some FNO participants will be hosting events earlier in the day, so be sure to check with your favorite brands to find out what their big plans are.

Q: Is Fashion’s Night Out only happening in NYC?

A: No! Fashion’s Night Out is a global event. Cities all over the U.S. are invited to participate in Fashion’s Night Out.

Q: Is there an official FNO merchandise collection again this year?

A: Yes! Back by popular demand is the official Fashion’s Night Out merchandise collection featuring some fabulous new pieces. To view the collection, click here.

Oh, and I’m calling “Half-Assery” on the measly contribution to the NYC AIDS Foundation.  A lousy 40% of the proceeds from FASHION’S NIGHT OUT MERCHANDISE, does not a true charity-event make.

Here.  Watch for your GOTdamn selves.

Where’s my assistant with the fire extinguisher for my hair? I just can’t with this. At. All.

Can we just please watch the REAL THING now??


I encourage all of you to actively help out the AIDS charities in your own communities.  Educate yourselves, help others.  You don’t need to SHOP for designer clothing to help folks in need.  The Seattle AIDS Alliance is a perfect example of advocacy and empowerment.

Wow.  Tangent, much?  Alla y’all oughta be used to it by now. Oh, and sorry for all the rage about Lea Michele. (Not really.)
