Clever Photoshops of Contemporary Magazine Covers Into Classic Artworks

Filipino artist Eisen Bernard knows Tilda Swinton belongs in a work of art — which is why he Photoshopped her into one, along with dozens of other celebrities featured on magazine covers, for his Tumblr Mag + Art. The concept is simple and the execution flawless: highly stylized magazine portraits are blended seamlessly into masterworks from the likes of John Singer Sargent, Jacques-Louis David, and Rene Magritte.

The Starlet Lifestyle Brand Disease: Blake Lively’s Preserve Is No GOOP

Pray consider it, dear reader: did you ever go through an Anthropologie stage? Do you even know what that entails? From someone who’s been there, it is this: walking through the exquisitely laid-out store, you imagine that this is your shabby-chic New York loft, your smelling-of-lavender nightgown and silk robe, your perfect striped shirt, and your perfect, elaborately-embroidered-in-an-exotic-melange-of-colors dress, tailored for your body type. Because the thing about Anthropologie — and any other store worth its brand (The Apple Store, Whole Foods) — is that it’s a promise: by shopping here, you will be fitter, happier, more productive. You’ll be a generally better version of you, because you, failure, should aspire to this level of brilliance. … Read More

The 30 Harshest Actor-on-Actor Insults in History

In the current ultra-managed, publicist-controlled, sound-byte-driven media atmosphere, you don’t get to hear stars really speaking their minds anymore — at least, not about anything fun, like how they really feel about their fellow stars. But occasionally a little something sneaks through the PR wall, both now and back in Hollywood’s golden age, sometimes as whispers, sometimes as gossip, sometimes long after the fact. And thus, we present another, long-overdue installment of our ongoing series (following authors, filmmakers, and musicians) of really famous people really cutting each other… Read More

Celebrity Fad Diets Photographed as Classic Still Life Paintings

Artist Dan Bannino, who we first learned about on Dangerous Minds, highlights the absurdity of celebrity fad diets by photographing them as baroque still lifes that are reminiscent of classic European paintings. Examining popular weight loss plans touted today, and those used by centuries-old celebs, Bannino wanted to portray the diets as “significant, like classic works of arts that are becoming more and more weighty as they grow older.” Opting for high camp rather than crass, Bannino used quilted rolls of pink toilet paper and bright yellow lemons to portray the Master Cleanse — the same diet Beyoncé used to lose weight for her role in Dreamgirls. His ultra leafy photo representing the Cabbage Soup Diet that Bill Clinton used to drop pounds for daughter Chelsea’s wedding reminds us that it is possible to eat greens in an unhealthy way. See more photos capturing ludicrous weight loss fads, below. … Read More

“Non-Feminist” Celebrities Who Owe Their Careers to… Feminism

Once Beyoncé herself puts the actual dictionary definition of a term right in the middle of a hit single, you’d think people would stop being so confused over what that term means. But nope, Patron Saint of YA Adaptations Shailene Woodley felt the need to simultaneously say she’s not a feminist and demonstrate that she’s not 100% clear on what a feminist even is. She’s hardly the first to do so, but ironically, the idea of women’s equality she claims not to subscribe to is what makes her box office success possible in the first place. Here’s a list of other self-identified non-feminists who wouldn’t be where they are today without what, as “***Flawless” tells us, is simply the belief “in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.” Read ‘em and weep. … Read More

Songs for a Conscious Uncoupling: A Playlist for Gwyneth and Chris

Look, breakups are tough. I know this from experience. And I also know that some good tunes can help. I’m not here to rag on Gwyneth Paltrow or Chris Martin for their split, even if I wouldn’t have made an announcement about it on my personal lifestyle website just a few hours before I was scheduled to make an appearance on Glee. But hey, I’m not Gwyneth Paltrow! What I would do, however, is let my emotions out by singing along with some sweet jams — songs that run the gamut from bitter to angry to somber to empowering. Just in case Gwyneth and Chris need a few suggestions (you know, the kind that aren’t songs from the Coldplay catalog or the Country Strong soundtrack), here are 30 tracks that they may find appealing. … Read More

Why Gwyneth Paltrow Will Always Inspire Schadenfreude

When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin broke the news of their “conscious uncoupling” on GOOP yesterday afternoon, the announcement immediately crashed the lifestyle website and sent the average person into peals of laughter. And after that laughter came the feelings like, “Oh, Gwyneth. It’s too bad you’re getting a separation! Why did you announce it on your lifestyle website, using the most hilarious wording possible? What is a ‘conscious uncoupling,’ and is that better than the way that some people head towards severing a relationship, where they’re throwing vases across the room and having to deal with crazy mediators en route to a divorce?” … Read More

It’s Easy to Love Actors Like Gwyneth Paltrow: Just Ignore Their Terrible Personalities

“Gwyneth Paltrow is not the most courteous scooter driver,” went the Vulture headline last week, and skimming it, this reader had one immediate thought: there is not one thing in that headline I care about. I don’t care about scooters; I don’t care about who is and is not good at driving them; and I especially don’t care about how the Oscar-winning actress stacks up in the scooter-courtesy derby. But here’s the real question: why does anybody care? … Read More

10 Celebrities We Wish Would Quit Twitter

Former married couple Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold recently destroyed each other on Twitter over, well, divorced couple stuff. Barr was not happy after Arnold tweeted about giving his old wedding videos to Goodwill, and the resulting feud was not just biting (“I’ve got old wedding videos from several women. Why you think it’s all about YOU? Good lord I feel sorry for Monsanto with you on their asses”), but pretty depressing. It was like listening to your parents fight, and hearing it all through social media made it that much worse. Both of them could probably use a break from Twitter, as well as the following ten celebrities. … Read More
