So, correct us if we’re wrong, but Sharper Image is a technology brand, right? They deal with all sorts of wizard-like gadgetry, if we’re not mistaken. So why exactly do they have Megan Fox stretched out on a bed with sexily mussed-up sheets in thigh-high stockings for their new campaign? We get that Megan is the sharper image here … but why, guys? It was only only on closer inspection that we realized that she’s holding a tablet in her hand. There’s the link to electronics! It’s totally legit now to have her pose in lingerie for something that is very, very loosely woven to her Transformers role. The tablet’s going to transform into one of Optimus Prime’s dudes! Now, how do we explain the fur throw? Is it faux? Is she trying to send out subliminal messages for PETA? Who knows guys. The Sharper Image guys went deep for this.
We’re not mean and heartless, we swear. We used to believe in pure, innocent, stupidly passionate love. But then Kim Kardashian came along and ruined everything with her questionable dalliance with Kris Humphries. So when we heard that the reality star was hooking up with rapper Kanye West, we put our guard up. But now that the pair are reportedly putting marriage on the table, we’re going on an all-out defensive. Despite just going public one month ago, US Weekly is reporting that the two are seriously considering tying the knot. A source says that their partnership is “very serious,” and that they go to great lengths to be together…or at least be seen together. Kim’s even rumored to accompany Yeezy on his summer tour with Jay-Z. “She wants to be with him as much as possible,” the source explains. “They really know and love each other.”
Yes, the man who brought us “Gold Digger” is considering marrying the woman who less than a year before pulled off one of the most lucrative PR/wedding stunts in history. We’re not going to lie: our first reaction is to tell Kanye to run for his damn life. But perhaps they aren’t so bad together after all. She definitely doesn’t need his money. And at this point she doesn’t need the fame she’d get by hanging out with him. She’s pretty stable on her own. In fact, it could be argued that the couple are pretty evenly matched. The question is; does greed for more dictate Kim’s desire to be with Kanye, or is it actually love? Our cynicism makes us believe the latter, but we’re totally ready to be proved wrong.
It looks like Lady Gaga is back on the road and back on the market! The 26 year-old megastar reportedly split with her boyfriend Taylor Kinney before kicking off her Born This Wall Ball world tour in Hong Kong. Ok, technically they’re just “on a break,” but anyone who’s ever been dumped knows what that really means. “She will be touring nonstop until next year and has found she can’t have relationship at the same time,” a source told US Weekly. ”There’s just no room for anything else. Her work is all-consuming.” We guess long distance relationships aren’t really Momma Monster’s thing. Plus she’s also recording a new album in between her 110 concert dates, so we can’t say we blame her for needing some space.
Lady Gaga met Taylor last September on the set of her “You And I” video, which co-stared the sometimes-Vampire Diaries hunk. But friends say that the couple were never met to go the distance. “Taylor was all about himself, a typical actor, and didn’t completely get Gaga,” the source confirmed. But let’s be real, does anyone really get Gaga? It’s debatable. Perhaps Taylor was just Gaga’s rebound dude after her final split with longtime lover Luc Carl, the man she wrote ‘You And I’ about in the first place? “She loved that she got this guy who everyone thought was hot! But it was never going to last.”
So, yesterday, we kind of ignored Ashton Kutcher’s fake ad for WorldwideLovers.com (actually an for Popchips), because, well, we just didn’t find it all that funny. Maybe interesting to see Ashton’s attempts to look unattractive, but yeah, not funny. And because that made us dismiss it, we kind of missed the bigger controversy, which really blew up by yesterday afternoon: That the Kardashian-loving “Bollywood producer” Raj is a pretty racist stereotype. After several pundits and regular viewers complained of Kutcher’s “brownface,” the snack company removed Raj’s profile video from its Facebook site. But not, interestingly, from the Youtube video featuring all of the characters.
“The new Popchips worldwide dating video and ad campaign featuring four characters was created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone,” said a statement from Popchips given to TheWrap.com. Read more…
When we look at photographs like these, we realize that Kate Upton was probably put on this earth to make the rest of us want to crawl under a rock and sob into our Cheetos. It’ s a very specific kind of karma, but someone’s got to do it. Which is why we can’t understand this. Why would someone as blessed as Kate Upton — don’t kid yourselves guys, God ordained that body — want to hang out with someone as skeezy as Terry Richardson? Wasn’t Cat Daddy enough? We’re still looking at Terry as Quagmire from Family Guy after his very enthusiastic “alright” right after adjusting Upton’s bikini strap in the video. Actually, while we’re asking questions — how does someone like Terry Richardson manages to get someone like Kate Upton to writhe so seductively that Youtube ends up banning their collaborative video? Which is also weird because granted that Kate was wearing the tiniest bikini ever known to mankind, but there was no nudity of any kind.
Which directly leads to our next point. We thought that Kate had paid her dues by posing for Terry in scraps of fabric. But the photographer’s site revealed that the model busting a move for him (and the rest of the world) was just the tip of the iceberg. A new batch of pictures have surfaced on the site of Kate, softly lit and glowing, nearly topless, but not quite. She’s hiding her modesty by crossing her arms over her chest. Not that it still isn’t NSFW, but if there’s anyone worth the risk, it’s Kate. You’re probably heading to the gallery right now to illustrate our point.
FHM HAS SPOKEN! The British mag spent the last year looking critically at every single woman on earth and, after doing so, deemed British celeb Tulisa Contostavlos the Sexiest Woman on Earth. Better luck next year, all other females on the planet! The actress, X Factor judge and singer-songwriter (formerly of the group N-Dubz) is a bonafide It Girl in the U.K., but the question in our mind is…can she cut in America? So, of course, we wanted to see how the new sexiest woman in the world compared to British crossover stars…or wannabe crossovers. So how does Tulisa stack up with others who have tried to make it big across the pond? She already has her own perfume line, which is a good start at least…

Cheryl Cole: Considering how huge Cole is in the U.K., it’s no wonder Simon Cowell kept trying to make her happen here, bringing her on for a judge’s spot on the American version of The X Factor last year…before kicking her off. Seeing how jazzed people seem to be about her new video for “Call My Name,” however, we’re pretty sure Cheryl is in this to win this. Our conclusion: Even if you don’t make the transition the first time, Tulisa, there might always be success further on down the line. Or at least another fragrance.
Jessie J: Even though her leg was broken for what seemed like eons, the Gaga-esque pop star was everywhere in America this past fall, including the VMAs and in our ear holes with “Domino.” Our conclusion: Leg braces? Kind of a hot look. Something to think about, Tuls.
We already gave you a preview of Bobby Brown’s interview with Today’s Matt Lauer, in which the singer attempts to clear his name by dispelling the age-old rumors that he was the cause of Whitney Houston’s addiction. Now we have video of the sitdown, and it’s, of course, even more heartbreaking. In addition to recounting how well she looked the week prior to her death, he tells Lauer that he still asks himself if he could have helped her more.
“Maybe I could have done something different. You know?” he says. “To ensure she had a longer life. But you have to want it.”
Although happily engaged, he had no qualms expressing the love he had for his ex-wife of 14 years. Brown’s perception is that the couple had a great and “beautiful” relationship. “I can honestly say that I loved that woman with everything that I am,” he admitted. “I truly and genuinely love that woman. And I still love her to this day.” He said it’s no secret (not even to his fiancee) how he felt about Whitney. “I was in love with her deeply,” he says of his late ex.
It’s commendable for Brown to take the high road by only having good things to say about Houston. From the outside looking in the couple may have appeared to be a little rough around the edges. But that’s not to say the love they had for each other wasn’t real. Take a look at the couple during the happier times of their marriage.
If there’s one thing we absolutely know about Rihanna, it’s that she doesn’t give a hoot what anyone thinks of her living her life to the fullest. In typical badass Riri form, the pop singer shows off how she relieves stress, posting two Instagram pictures of herself enjoying the “best stress reliever,” which in this glam girl’s world means making it rain on scantily clad dressed strippers. Mocking critics who have condemned her for not behaving like a role model she added the hashtags to the picture of an unknown stripper backing it up on her: “#RoleModelS— #NaviS—.” Read more…
“I haven’t had a drink or ANYTHING since Dec. 30, 2010. You’re a knuckle head. I’ve been like that since birth,” David Arquettetweeted in response to a random woman’s reaction to his Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance last night. But man, you can’t blame that “knuckle head” for thinking the actor was on something! He arrived at the show with bloodshot eyes, laughing through every single answer, much the way a very high person does, or a person who is just naturally hyper and childlike, we suppose. And maybe he was just giddy about the brand-new Wonder Woman tattoo he got just before heading to Kimmel’s studio.
