Kate Upton’s Controversial Mercedes Super Bowl Commercial

Categories: celebrities, Kate Upton

I’m not really sure what the big fuss is over Kate Upton’s Super Bowl commercial. This is just the teaser, but it seems pretty tame to me.

Luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz released a teaser of its coming Super Bowl ad that  features the model Kate Upton. The spot is meant to promote the new Mercedes CLA, and entry-level model aimed at younger buyers currently shut out by the sticker-shock-inducing prices of even the least-expensive Benz vehicles.

While Upton supposedly “washes the new Mercedes CLA in slow motion,” she’s mainly eye candy for the TV audience and a group of guys in football jerseys who actually wield the sponges and hoses. At one point she scoops a handful of suds and later tells one of the men that he “missed a spot,” but there’s no manual labor on her part.

Kristen Bell on if she’s having a natural childbirth: “I’ve got nothing to prove”

Pregnant Kristen Bell was on The Ellen Degeneres show today, and the Ellen people sent us some clips. Bell, 32, is pregnant with her first child, with fiance Dax Shephard. I love those two as a couple and hope for the best for them and their baby.

Kristen revealed to Ellen that they knows the sex of the baby but are choosing to keep it a secret. She said she’s due sometime in late Spring, which I would guess to be around May. Ellen wouldn’t take no for an answer on the baby’s sex and she seemed to get some clues from Kristen suggesting that it’s a boy. My favorite part of the interview is when Ellen asked Kristen if she’s considering a natural birth and she’s all “hell no.” This was really funny:

On if she’s going to have a natural childbirth
I’ve got nothing to prove. I feel like when I arrive at the hospital. I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back. And, I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it’s over because I’ve seen the videos and it looks terrifying.

On how she has dopamine-induced high self esteem
I look in the mirror and I think it’s the reverse body dysmorphia because I can understand what my shape is but I see Brooke Shields. And, it doesn’t make a lick of sense but it’s something that the baby’s giving me hormonally makes me feel really giggly and happy.

On if Dax Shepard is excited
He is, yeah. In different ways then I am. He’s just thinking about all the off-roading he’ll have in this tiny partner.

Ellen says “So, it’s a boy?”
Maybe? Do you have to be a boy off road? Absolutely not.

[From The Ellen show, received via email.]

Kristen also shared this adorable picture of Dax practicing for their baby by putting one of their dogs in the Baby Bjorn. She claims the dog got in there willingly.

And she also dressed her dogs up for Halloween like Downton Abbey staffmembers Mrs. O’Brien and Thomas Barrow. I sh*t you not.

Do you remember the last time that Kristen Bell was on Ellen and she started crying when Ellen told her there was a sloth backstage? (Video is here.) That was just a year ago, and Ellen was punking Kristen, there was no sloth, and kind of exploiting her strange obsession with sloths. Last year Kristen told Ellen how Dax hired a sloth to come to her 31st birthday party. She was so freaked out about it, even recounting the story, and explained that she’s one of those people who cries easily.

Anyway Ellen brought a real sloth on stage with Kristen this time! The sloth’s name was Lola, and Kristen said that she’d actually heard that there was a sloth named Lola in LA. She has all the LA sloths’ names memorized apparently. Kristen really kept it together this time, I was surprised. I cry easily too although I can hold it in if I focus. I could see Kristen struggling not to cry. (My kid has a school project to do on Helen Keller and those YouTube newsreel videos really do me in.) Kristen was working hard to seem calm about the sloth but she was probably dying inside.

Here’s the video of Kristen seeing the sloth. She’s also gifted a baby sloth outfit from Ellen and she loves it. This girl is such a trip.

And here’s the rest of Kristen’s interview:

Was Justin Bieber’s sizzurp fueled hour of groupie sex the last straw for Selena?

Justin Bieber

Good morning, everyone! Has your breakfast settled yet? If not, you may want to dispose of it before reading this story. Just giving fair warning here. First up, here’s Justin Bieber’s latest “self portrait” from his Instagram, which I guarantee is much more palatable than what is coming up next. Are you ready? Me neither.

A story in this week’s issue of Star offers up the real reason that Selena Gomez broke up with Justin for real and forever. Via Jezebel, there are truly scandalous details of a late-December “drug and sex romp” between Justin and a 22-year-old girl named Mimi. Apparently, Lil Twist was along for the ride, and all three smoked pot and drank sizzurp before heading to a hotel room where Justin went downtown on this girl “for almost an hour.” Apparently, Justin and this woman did not have sexual intercourse, but still, this is super gross, right? Almost an hour. That will be forever imprinted in your brain. Here are some equally repellant embellishments from Star’s story courtesy of Radar:

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber‘s debauchery-filled evening in Los Angeles — in which, in a stoned haze, he engaged in sexual activity with a 22-year-old nursing student — was the last straw in his 2-year relationship with Selena Gomez, sources tell the new issue of Star.

On December 21, an insider tells the magazine, the 18-year-old pop star joined rapper Lil Twist and nursing student Milyn “Mimi” Jenson around 6 p.m at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons.

“They all went to buy weed at a smoke shop on Olympic Blvd. in Hollywood,” the insider said, “then they got food at McDonald’s and went back to the hotel.”

At the hotel, the group smoked marijuana and drank a chemical concoction known as “sizzurp” throughout the night. From there, they went to the Baby singer’s $6.6 million Calabasas mansion, where Justin opened up about his fondness for tattoos and Xanax, as well as his plans to build a hookah room in the house.

After that, Justin held Mimi’s hand, and showed her the breathtaking view from his backyard. The insider said that Mimi said Justin was really kind, romantic — and stoned — after he’d been “smoking pot all night.”

The group returned to the Four Seasons, where the coupling between Mimi and Justin continued in his bedroom suite. “Justin surprised her by saying, ‘I want to know if you taste good.’ He started kissing her cheek and ear and neck and then her whole body,” the insider said. Then, the Biebs removed Mimi’s clothes and engaged in sexual activity with her.

Justin, who stayed clothed the entire time, ended things quickly after the marathon session, despite Mimi’s hopes he’d take things further. “He seemed out of it, and even though he didn’t ask Mimi to leave, she decided she should go,” the source said, noting that Justin didn’t kiss her on the lips.

Mimi, who had no comment when contacted by Star, “thought Justin was single, and he definitely acted like he was,” the source said.

[From Radar Online]

You know, I believe this story although I’m not sure whether this particular “romp” was what led to Justin and Selena’s ultimate breakup. I think he just did stuff like this all the time on a regular basis, and Selena either never knew about it, or she simply put up with a lot of crap from Justin for no reason at all. They were spotted travelling together around the New Year, and I doubt Lil Twist or Justin fessed up to the lady munching, so I’m guessing that Selena and Justin broke up for other reasons, including the fact that he was a terrible boyfriend.

As for the “sizzurp” angle, I understand that this concoction is a mixture of the Sizzurp cough syrup (active ingredient – codeine) with added Sprite and Jolly Rancher flavoring. Side effects include euphoria and, apparently, the desire to go downtown (for nearly an hour) on randoms. What a winner, this Bieber.

In other Bieber news, a woman who was working out on Tuesday at the gym of a North Carolina Ritz Carlton says that Bieber and her trainer were loudly mocking her workout, and one of them split blue Gatorade into her squeeze water bottle. Justin (of course) denies doing so (he says he was mocking his own workout), but it doesn’t help that the woman unknowingly drank from her bottle before realizing that someone else’s bodily fluids resided within. This kid is so gross.

Is Rihanna Pregnant With Chris Brown’s Baby?

Is Rihanna Pregnant With Chris Brown’s Baby?

photo of rihanna pregnant pictures, photos
A heads-up from one of our readers via ONTD:

A Twitter post by Chris Brown on 19 January captioned “LOL” along with a picture of him wearing a T-shirt with ‘You Are The Father’ on the front has sent the rumour mill into overdrive about whether Chris and RiRi are expecting a baby. OMG!

Just seconds after the tweet, one of Chris’ followers piped up, “Is this subliminal for telling the world that Rihanna is pregnant?” And the plot thickened when RiRi was papped meeting up with Chris late on 18 January after a night out, during which she wasn’t spotted drinking. Mysterious and extremely out of character! (LOL)

Can you imagine if these two had a child? Hell, can you imagine if these two even adopted an animal together? The poor, poor -child/animal. What an awful, deprived life it would live. The thing would never be fed, would always have to be rocked to sleep hearing sad strains of “Umbrella … ella … ella …” This would be a botched job, that’s for damn sure.

Let’s just hope that this photo—a photo that she posted on Instagram just last night—is a true indicator, and the answer to the question in this post’s title would be ‘no’:

Elizabeth Banks: “Celebrities are normally genetically predisposed to being thin people”

Elizabeth Banks: Celebrities are normally genetically predisposed to being thin people | hollywood moms elizabeth banks celebrity quotes

On why regular women should not compare themselves with celebrities:

“I like to believe that if I had carried my own baby, I would have bounced back. But who knows? And by the way, it’s such a horrible — women should not be expected to bounce back … it’s a, I think, a true disservice what’s going on right now with all these celebrity moms … first of all, I just want to remind people that celebrities generally are genetically superior human beings on a certain level anyway … they’re mostly thin, you know, they got trainers, they work out, they’ve got money, they’ve got the ability, you know, and they are normally genetically predisposed to being thin people anyway, so like these women who are holding up, you know, certain people as their benchmark after they’ve had a child, like just go be with your kid for a minute … don’t get to the gym right away. It’s alright. This is not how it’s supposed to be, everybody. Calm down.”

… says Elizabeth, who had 2 children via surrogate.

Angelina Jolie on meeting Brad: ‘I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds’

I’m not sure what all of this is about, but it’s always nice to hear from The Leg of Doom. I’ve missed her! Haven’t you missed her? Angelina Jolie was everywhere a year ago – Brad was nominated for a bunch of awards and she was “the date” plus she was promoting In the Land of Blood and Honey, plus she didn’t mind when the paparazzi got nice shots of her and the kids. And nowadays… there’s such an absence! I miss her. Anyway, Angelina might have given a new interview to Total Film Magazine – I don’t think TF is in the habit of completely making up interviews, but you never know. Angelina talks about directing, her kids, and how she got with Brad. Maybe I’m clinging to this because there’s been such a dearth of quality Jolie-Pitt stories, but I think this interview is pretty good:

Angelina Jolie, she of The Leg, doesn’t let her overwhelming fame go to her head. In an interview with Total Film magazine the 37-year-old stunner opened up about her and fiance Brad Pitt’s lifestyle.

“The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you’re the person who takes them to go poop!” Jolie told interviewer James Mottram.

The Jolie-Pitt clan consists of the two A-listers and their six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne. Despite being known worldwide, Jolie insists ”we have a very normal, very grounded home. And we’re friends, and we have a laugh with our kids.”

How do they deal with the swarms of paparazzi waiting on their every move? “We just explain to our kids that people like to take pictures of people who make movies. And that’s all it is. It’s not anything special about mommy and daddy – we just happen to make movies.”

On that note, Jolie also talked about “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” her film set in the Bosnian War and the first she’s ever directed.

“I didn’t set out to ever become a director or write a script. I was never intending to make a film,” the Academy Award-winning actress told the magazine. “I’ve been traveling for over 10 years to these conflict and post-conflict zones, and thinking about what happens to people when they live inside these situations, and how their humanity is just stripped apart … So I wanted to have a meditation on what this is and how people who are neighbours can turn against each other.”

On fame: “I don’t think [actors need a mystique surrounding their private life]. You know the actor. You’ve seen them at award shows, you’ve seen them at premieres dressed up. So whether they share or not, their cover is already blown.”

On her roles: “I do feel that’s very much what a woman is, that combination [of very strong but also very feminine], and I think interesting roles do have that combination – more complex people have that dual side to their personality.”

On being labeled sexy: “I’m a woman, and anytime you tell a woman that she looks nice, it’s not going to upset her.”

On “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” bringing her and Brad together: “Yes, we do talk about that. We look around at our kids. I’m not somebody that thinks about destiny and fate but I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds.”

[From HuffPo]

“I’m not somebody that thinks about destiny and fate but I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds…” Hunh. That’s an interesting way to say it… their relationship “unfolded”. Discuss! As for the poop quote – that was very un-Angelina, right?

Speaking of unfolding, Star Magazine reports this week that Angelina is pregnant again. Yeah… it’s Star. That being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if they went for one more (or two more). A source tells Star, “Angelina has been talking about having another child for years now… But Brad kept putting his foot down because of their intense schedules and chaotic lifestyle.” So Angelina just went ahead and got knocked up and Brad cried about it and now Angelina is purposefully staying out of the spotlight because she doesn’t want people to know she’s knocked up. The source says, “She had morning sickness and didn’t want to draw attention to herself in public. She’s focusing on the other children right now, trying to prepare them for the new baby.” Angelina and Brad are convinced that she’s expecting a boy, and Shiloh says that they’ll need to name him “John” (because that’s what Shiloh calls herself).

Mad Men Season 6 Premieres April 7, 2013

Mad Men Season 6 Premieres April 7, 2013

Mad Men Season 6 Premiere 2013

The past two seasons of Mad Men have kept us on the edge of our seats as to when the show would premiere, but we finally know the premiere date of Mad Men Season 6.

On April 7, 2013, the season will kick off with a 2-hour premiere episode at 9pm.  The following week the show will return to it’s regularly scheduled time at 10PM. Sadly, Season 7 will be it’s last, so you better enjoy it while you can.

Creator Matt Wiener promises this season will be a pivotal one in the series. he told the Daily Beast: “I came in with my plan for the season. I was like, ‘I want to save that for the last season, I want to save that; I want to wait on that’ and I was pulled aside by Maria and Andre Jacquemetton, my executive producers, who said, ‘Don’t do that. You’ve never done that before. Let’s just use all the story that we have and we’ll deal with it on the other side of it.’ It really helped. Because I don’t want to change, part of it is superstition and part of it is the only way I know how to do it.

“I never had the guarantee of even one more season for the first few seasons I did the show. So I would just use all the story I had. And it’s a much better way to do it. It’s much better for the audience. It’s much more satisfying for us than going through some half-measure and wasting 13 episodes on a set-up. For what? For 13 more? I was told by my trusted co-workers that we should do the show the way we’ve always done it. And I think, as usual, I will probably be painted into a corner by the end of the season.”

Want a refresher of Season 5? Beginning March 3, 2013, fans can set their DVRs to record Season 5 episodes (Sunday mornings, hence the DVR) leading up until Mad Men Season 6′s premiere. And from what Matt Wiener says, you might want to.

“So where is he [Don Draper] going from there? I don’t know. Is he going to try to repair that relationship? Is going to move on from it? I can’t tell you. I would love for people to just watch the last 10 minutes of Season 5 right before Season 6 starts. I think you’ll have a really incredible experience as we get there.”

Can. Not. Wait.
