Another one bites the dust

October 16, 2010

After five years together, Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman are calling it a day.  How sad, they seemed a genuinely loved-up couple back in the day.  I guess five years is pretty good going in celeb-land though.

On the subject of couples going down the pan:

Doesn’t seem to be much evidence of smiling, shaving or washing of hair in Twilight paradise. Oh dear.

Car Crash Review: Eclipse

July 4, 2010

The Twilight franchise is like junk food for my head.  It’s like looking at a big, sugary donut and you crave it, so you eat it, but afterwards you feel a bit guilty and sick and think you really shouldn’t eat one again any time soon.  But then of course you do.

The films in particular are a total sugar-crash for my mind.  They seem like a really good idea at first, but by the time I’m halfway through I’m sort of waiting for it to end  and feeling sort of silly for getting so excited over scenes of saccharine teenage love in the first place.

But I went to see Eclipse last night with about 500 other loons who thought it was worth going to see in the middle of the night and actually really enjoyed it and think I probably could watch it again without asking myself “why!?” afterwards.

The Oscars happened and some people wore some clothes

March 9, 2010

Dear reader, give your eyes a long, cool, delicious sip of this:

Oh Cameron.  Oh Cammy, Cammy, Cammy.  Wow.

I actually gasped when I first saw this picture and then looked around the room to see if anyone else was looking over my shoulder, also basking in the feminine sparkliness.  As it happened, no one was, they were all working like I should have been, but still, I basked alone and oohed and ahhed to myself over how gorgeous she looks.

This is, by far my favourite look of the night.

When did teenagers get so “cool”?

What’s happened to teenagers?  When I think of my adolescent years, I think of awful fashion, bad hair, acne and awkwardness.  But for today’s tweens life seems like one big Skins episode, where everyone is lithe, leggy and stylish.

How self-assured does 16-year-old Taylor Momsen look, above, in all of her bleached and stocking-ed glory?  Why couldn’t I look as aloof as Kristen Stewart when I was 18??

Thing is, underneath the fame and glamour that these young girls are enjoying, I do wonder what the cost is.   Taylor particularly concerns me.  I mean, ok, you have great legs love, but, you ARE 16.  How long was her childhood, five minutes?  It’s not just the chemical-coloured hair extensions and lashings of eyeliner that are worrying but the “seen it all, done it all” expression on her face.  I see another Lindsay Lohan in the making here, and it’s sad, but that’s now an unfortunate comparison to make.

Twilight did well at the MTV awards

June 2, 2009

Ok, am I the only one stupidly excited about the New Moon trailer?  I mean, the film will be awful, just like Twilight was, but as I’m a bona fide loony fan of the books, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, I still can’t wait to see it.

First of all, let me point out once again why I love Kristen.

Awkward but totally gorgeous and not afraid to opt for comfort on the red carpet.  I like that she does her own thing.

The film managed to scoop loads of awards, with both Kristen and Rob getting best male and female actor and they also got one for best screen kiss which they pretended to reenact:

Sigh.  Lucky, lucky girl.
