We’re sure that Abby Elliott originally had a very lovely, chic, tasteful dress for her upcoming spread in Maxim . But someone must have spilled red wine on or or something, because when the time for the photo shoot came, the SNL heart throb went before the flashbulbs wearing nothing but her skivvies. Not that we’re complaining! In fact, Abby is just the latest comedy star to pose for some glossy (and did we mention uber sexy!?) magazine spreads. Kristen Wiig just recently took it all off for her hot spot in GQ. We guess funny is the new black! Check out the gallery below for more funny people whose hotness is no laughing matter!
Rihanna‘s video for the song “S&M,” has already been banned in 11 countries but the drama surrounding the sexy video doesn’t stop there. Photographer David LaChapelle is suing Rihanna, claiming she “directly derived” some of the images in the video from LaChapelle’s fashion photography. In other words, he got ripped off.
The lawsuit says “the music video is directly derived from and substantially similar to the LaChapelle work,” specifically eight shots in the video, which he claims copy the “composition, total concept, feel, tone, mood, theme, colors, props, settings, decors, wardrobe and lighting” of his previous work. LaChapelle has worked with Rihanna in the past but he had nothing to do with the “S&M” video, it was directed by Melina Matoukas. The Daily Mail has a shot-for-shot comparison to see just how similar the Rihanna video is to the photography—what do you think? We think it’s similar, but not a total rip-off. Although eight instances of similarity might be too many for one video.
A publicity company is hawking a new spray that will allegedly let celebrities strike back at their paparazzi oppressors without any messy legal hassle. Just calmy point your STOParazzi Spray bottle at the offending photographer. Then press the top to shoot some non-toxic gunk onto the camera lens. The company claims it’s hard to remove, but won’t damage the equipment. No one’s been seen using the spray yet, but once Kanye West gets word of this new development in anti-pap technology, some might not leave their limo without it. [via INF Daily]
