Patti Smith Paints Beautiful Word Picture Of Kristen Stewart, Rob Pattinson Starring In A Just Kids Movie

Patti Smith Envisions Kristen Stewart, Rob Pattinson In Just Kids Movie

Most people think of Patti Smith as a punk legend. Based on who she’s imagined playing herself and late photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in a biopic, she would also make an utterly magnificent casting director. “I remember the very first time I saw Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson together, when they were younger, and I thought, ‘Those two kids could have easily played us when they were first starting,’ ” the singer told Entertainment Weekly. “There’s something in his eyes. And Robert [Mapplethorpe] was also a bit shy, and a bit stoic. Kristen has a very special quality. She’s not conventionally beautiful, but very charismatic.” Uh, we don’t know if we would really characterize Kristen as either, but either way we love this casting call. Leather jackets, soulful longing, starving artistry: This is all we want to see Rob and Kristen do, forever. Let’s get these kids back to their roots! And by roots, we mean heaving sighs!

Chris Brown And Courtney Love Show Their Faces At Marina Abramovic Party

From the middle of March til the end of May, performance artist Marina Abramovic spent every day sitting silently at the Museum of Modern Art in NY as part of her The Artist Is Present exhibit, while “visitors were encouraged to sit silently across from the artist for a duration of their choosing, becoming participants in the artwork.” Finally, after days upon days upon days of holding her bladder (Abramovic claims she held in her bodily functions during the eight hour stints) and being stared upon by the curious, the obsessed, the teary-eyed and even the famous (Lou Reed! James Franco! Kim Cattrall!), it was time for Abramovic to hobnob with the cultural elite at a wrap party. Attending alongside that elite were such unexpected celebs as the cosmetically altered Courtney Love and the cosmetically altering Chris Brown—two people we’d hate to be stuck across from for any length of time. If you had to sit face-to-face with either star, which one would it be? Check out the celebs in the gallery below—you won’t belive what Christina Ricci wore—and let us know who you’d pick in our TheFABLife poll).

Vanessa Paradis Hawks Lipstick, Talks Johnny Depp

Vanessa Paradis

Vanessa Paradis has been an internationally famous singer since early adolescence, the 37-year-old knows she’s best known in the US for having two children with long-time partner Johnny Depp—someone she wasn’t hesitant to discuss at a Chanel dinner celebrating Rogue COCO, her new lipstick line, in NY last night. “I love his style, yeah, yeah, yeah!” she exclaimed to People. “I love him, and I don’t have to say I like this and I don’t like that. When you love somebody, you take them as they are. I would not change him.” Yeah, yeah, yeah! But do you really, really like him, Vanessa? As much as you like the quilt tiles on your dress?

“I like him very much in all terms and every sense of the way. He makes me happy. We are many things—we are together and, in a way, one person.” While Captain Jack wasn’t around to literalize her claims, Patti Smith—who joined Depp at Tim Burton’s MOMA party last year—and Kate Bosworth provided support in his stead. Get a closer look in the gallery below.
