I live in Eugene, Oregon with my husband and our sons Riley (7) and Dylan (5). Prior to August 2010 I spent many years as a software marketer, these days I work from home as a freelance writer. I enjoy photography, comic books, R-rated movies, and things that smell like coconut.
Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love's daughter Francis Bean Cobainmade headlines in 2011 when she posed for an absolutely stunning series of photos, and at that time, it looked like she was forging her own path in the wake of her all-too-famous parents. This seemed like a very good thing, considering her father's tragically self-destructive behavior, and her mom's ... um, however you'd describe Love's personal life choices. But even though she sounded mature and well-spoken just a year ago when she decried her estranged mother's social media behavior, Cobain seems to be following in her mom's Twitter footsteps now -- because she just went OFF on a crazy rant against Kendall Jenner.
Yes: that Kendall Jenner. I'm not sure why Cobain is following a Kardashian on Twitter, or why she cares what Jenner has to say, but she started a ridiculous one-sided tweet war against the teen model on Tuesday and came off sounding like a complete douchebag in the process.
I hate to say Brad Pitt can't catch a break, because, well, that's not exactly true. We should probably keep the "so-and-so can't catch a break!" comments for people who get the flu then have their home destroyed by fire then lose their job then get audited. Brad Pitt, in comparison, seems to be doing juuuuuust fine. My point -- I swear I have one -- is that he can't seem to say anything about his life without people deciding he's issuing a not-so-subtle diss against Jennifer Aniston.
Take this recent interview with Esquire, for instance. Basically what Pitt shared is that his life before ten years ago involved doing a lot of drugs and being a slacker, and these days he's totally blissed out with his superawesome family. The media, however, has produced the following headlines from this interview: Brad Pitt: I Was On Drugs During Marriage To Jennifer Aniston, and Brad Pitt Slams Marriage To Jennifer Aniston.
Seriously, what is WITH our national obsession with this ex-couple?
Here's something interesting from the world of popular '90s shows: Jennifer Aniston has finally hinted that a Friends reunion might happen. On Wednesday's episode of Ellen, guest cohost Aniston confessed to Ellen DeGeneres that she misses working with her Friends co-stars, and that the recent sketch she filmed with Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry gave her a nostalgic taste for what it would be like to do a full-blown reunion show.
Could you BE more excited about this news? The best part is that we have video of the sketch, which aired on Ellen, to view in order to get a sneak peek at what a Friends reunion might be like!
And it's ... it's ... um ... okay, remember the episode when Ross played the keyboard and everyone tried to pretend they liked it but they were secretly dying inside? Yeah. That.
If you've been inclined to think of actress January Jones as, let's say, not a particularly warm and friendly person, it's unlikely that her recent New York Times interview will do much to convince you otherwise. The interviewer somewhat predictably compared her to Betty Draper, the "sweet and sullen character" she plays on Mad Men, and says Jones' glamorous demeanor is "as wintry as her name." Jones was also put on the spot to share a particular detail about her personal life that may have endeared her to her detractors -- but she was having none of it. According to January Jones, the identity of the mystery man who fathered her 20-month-old son Xander is none of our business.
Was this the sort of response that will, once and for all, erase Jones' reputation as a stone-cold bitch? Not even a little bit. Is she right? Well, of course she is.
Yesterday X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of Lawrence in her role as Mystique, and she looks predictably fantastic. What's really interesting about the photo, however, is the fact that Lawrence is wearing a completely different Mystique costume this time around -- and even with the fairly detailed picture Singer shared, you can't tell what's fabric and what's flesh.
