Kim Kardashian Gets ASS-aulted
Juice Factor: 9/10
Okay, okay. We get it. It’s funny pranking celebs. Ellen does it all the time and well, Ellen knows best. But when you’re full on assaulting celebrities – who are human beings, btw – to the point where they’re frightened for their safety, that’s not cool. Nuh uh, honey. Vitalii Sediuk is the Ukrainian Journalist who’s become known for his ‘out-of-the-box’ reporting. You may know him as the guy who tried to kiss Will Smith (and subsequently got slapped), crawl under America Ferrera’s gown at Cannes, and most recently, grabbed Gigi Hadid after a Milan Fashion Week show and (deservedly) got elbowed. Now, Sediuk is under fire for trying to kiss Kim Kardashian’s ass. And while it’s likely she’s used to a little (hyperbole) ass kissing, having your body violated by a stranger isn’t funny… it’s sexual assault. Luckily, Kim’s badass security team pounced on him immediately. While it’s not clear if he was arrested, we’ve gotta say: shame on you Vitalii Sediuk – we hope you go away for a very long time.
Kylie Jenner’s Phone Number Gets Leaked… By Her Own Brother
Juice Factor: 8/10
Oh brother, where art thou? Obviously not the same side where the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan stand. Earlier this week, Rob Kardashian went loco and threw his youngest sibling, Kylie, under the bus by leaking her digits to the entire Twittersphere. The reason? Apparently, Kylie tried to throw a baby shower for the couple but failed to invite Rob’s baby mama, Blac Chyna. Smells like drama to us. As for Kylie’s phone? Well, apparently it’s been going off the hook with pleas for wire transfers, free Yeezys and mixtape listens. We can’t blame the trolls for trying.
Why Can’t We Just be a Normal Couple? Angelina to Head UN.
Juice Factor: 10/10
The world went mad last week when Brad and Angelina announced their split. Even airlines took advantage of the juicy news, scooping up full newspaper pages to advertise discounted flights to Los Angeles reading: BRAD PITT IS SINGLE. Now that, my friends, is marketing gold. As the days go by, more and more information is being disseminated about the inner issues at the root of their failed marriage. Turns out, Angelina has some lofty plans to become the head of the United Nations and take her children on peace missions to war-torn countries like Syria. Brad says, “Honey, why can’t the kids just play in the backyard?” She answers by blocking his phone number. Classic. We’re not sure who to agree with here and we know there’s more to this story that meets the eye. Whose side are YOU on?
Adam Levine Drops Baby Photo, World Goes Cray
Juice Factor 9/10
Can we just preface this by saying, who names their child a Pantone colour of the year? Singer powerhouse and model wife, Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo’s daughter will have to go through life being called DUSTY ROSE. Like, what were they thinking? Did they go into Benjamin Moore and pick their favourite paint swatch when they were deciding on baby names? Anyway, the baby is still cute AF. Cute as a dusty little rose, or whatever dusty roses are. One thing they are is Instagram-worthy. As the couple leaks the first photographs of the fruit of their loins, the world cannot wait for more.
Blind Item: Mega Media Exec Says Goodbye
Juice Factor: 9/10
One of Toronto’s leading media execs and editor sent a very interesting note to all her contacts last week stating that she would be leaving her position at one of the country’s top publishers to focus on a new venture. One of the most sought-after digital strategists, this news comes at a time when lots of moves are being made in the industry, and everyone is wondering what this leading lady might do next. The email was sent only to a few select contacts but we got wind of it here and just had to share our curiosity. Our eyes have been watching her social media (she’s also the face of many brand campaigns) to see if we can get any hints as to what she’s got up her sleeve.
Alexander Wang Rocks Nordstrom
Juice Factor: 9/10
Hundreds of fans flocked to Nordstrom last Friday evening to catch a glimpse of high-profile fashion designer, the one and only, Alexander Wang. Fans, editors, bloggers, you name it, they were all there flinging themselves at him. Most people wanted a selfie, some even managed to get his autograph. Lots of fame for such a young man! But what you might not know is that only a select few members of Toronto’s fashion scene were handpicked to attend a private, one on one fitting with Alexander himself upstairs in the department store, behind closed doors. We watched on Snapchat and Instagram stories to see who made the cut, green with envy!!!! We’re told we weren’t the only ones who had some serious FOMO, but unlike some people, we didn’t try do anything about it… ‘Nuff said!
