Was Kim K’s Tiny Waist Photoshopped in New Fergie M.I.L.F. $ Video?
Juice Factor: 7/10
Right. There’s so much we can say about the new Fergie comeback song and accompanying video for M.I.L.F. $, but first, let’s talk about Kim K.’s beyond skinny waist with plum-tastic hips. We think the ratio is like 1:1000 and her fans went crazy, accusing her of photoshopping her ass into those skin-tight denim shorts, which she appears in during the last few shots of the video. But Kim, an avid abuser of waist trainers, took to social media to slam all her fans. She writes: “F**k Yo Photoshop #CorsetLife.” Which is the best response, ever. Back to Fergie’s pathetic attempt at becoming relevant, the M.I.L.F. $ video (like, why would you choose that title?) is a sub-par rip of Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood, casting models who are also mothers like Alessandra Ambrosio, mixed with something Rihanna would sing about, complete with the token old-ladies-trying-to-appeal-to-millennials eos lip balm product placement; if it didn’t work for J.Lo… When you see the eos lip balm come out, shit just got real.
From Rome to Rhode Island: T-Swift Hosts Epic Bash for July 4th
Juice Factor: 5/10
Tom and T-Swift are at it again, this time dunking each other’s egos into the warm waters of Rhode Island, surrounded by celebs. TMZ described it as “Drowning in Celebs” – how apropos. What we really hoped they would drown that afternoon? Tom’s nippley-nips. Why is he wearing a wifebeater in the water? Who does that!!!! Tom, you’re supposed to be a celeb AKA you must show the goods at all times for us to indulge in so we can pretend what it’s like to kiss your pec muscles when you flex. Who else was at the party? The usual suspects: Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Blake Lively’s baby bump, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Ruby Rose and Cara Delevingne. IDK, this party looked like the ultimate snooze-fest, just a bunch of celebs jumping around in swamp water. We love this pic that clearly shows Karlie Kloss trying to push Blake Lively into the water. Muahahahaha.
Blind Item: Blogger Sour After Not Being Invited on Press Trip
Juice Factor: 8/10
Looks like a certain financial institution has decided to jump on the blogger train and invite a select few bloggers to an upcoming event this weekend – and they are all being flown out and put up for free. However, sources say that one blogger whose significant other was not asked to join the trip is quite bitter. Sources say this aforementioned bystander has been going around asking everyone if they are going or not and complaining that they should have been allowed to travel with their partner. Perhaps a bit of insecurity, who knows. But we think it’s so lame to ask why you aren’t invited when you’re not invited! Duh, it means you’re not invited! Stay home.
Justin Bieber Doesn’t Own Swim Trunks, Poor Guy.
Juice Factor: 6/10
Not sure if anyone cares about this but Justin Bieber went wakeboarding, according to TMZ, in his Calvin Klein underwear in Miami. Here’s what we think about this unnecessary show of post-comeback pubic hair from underneath his wet white boxer briefs: PLEASE DON’T. Why is it that celebrities think it’s OK to do things like wakeboarding in tighty whities when no other self-respecting human being would even dare do that. Have you seen his butt through the cotton fabric? If we were CK, we’d fire him off the campaign for disparaging buttholes. #MyCalvins? More like #MyAssCrack.
Blind Item: When Martinis and Manicures Don’t Mix
Juice Factor: 7/10
A hip GTA beauty salon with lots of clout, all the glitter, and all the gold shellac is secretly having staff issues – in that there is no staff left! What to do when everyone you hire quits? Or becomes too famous to work for you? Obviously, you overwork those who are left. It’s a no-brainer, people. But even though we would caution those on the inside not to bite the hand that feeds, an unhappy employee is more likely to squeal to the press. When there is no one left to work at your hotspot salon, what do you do? Close or hire new staff? This is the question on everyone’s minds – especially our hopeless employee who has been working overtime. In other news, if you’re an aesthetician, one of the most sought-after salons is hiring. But after reading this, would you really wanna work there?
Conspiracy Theory: Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston Aren’t Together, They Are Just Shooting a Music Video
Juice Factor: 10/10
We give this rumor a 10 out of 10 juice factor because we really really really want it to be true because that would just be the most amazing thing since LEMONADE. So, here’s the theory. Taylor and Tom have hired seemingly paparazzi to follow them around the world while they pretend to be in love, meanwhile, they are really just shooting her next piece of performance art. A recent Buzzfeed article dissects the entire theory bit by bit, from Tom’s “I Heart T.S” t-shirt (barf) and his temporary T-Swift tattoo, to staged shots that strangely resemble famous scenes from The Notebook. Buzzfeed notes that T-Swift is not only coming up on her album release deadline – she’s always released a new album in two-year intervals – and if she releases the single in September, that’s perfect timing for The Emmys and Tom’s nomination for The Night Manager. Whatever it is, true love or publicity stunt, we cannot wait to see how long this relationship will last.
Blind Item: Social Club Crasher
Juice Factor 9/10
One of Toronto’s most eligible media darlings is rumored to be on the outs with one of the city’s most exclusive locales. We don’t know if she is a member or just pretends to be by hanging onto other people’s coattails but one thing is for sure – the club has on numerous occasions asked her to please leave, out the front door. They do things classy! Besides, her only offense is rumoured to have been bringing other unwanted guests with her to this uber-private venue, people who are not welcome one bit. She’s well-known for schmoozing with the top elite in Canadian entertainment and fashion industries but that train may soon end… Choo-Choo!
