Here’s What Doesn’t Add Up About Kim Kardashian’s Outrage Over Nude Photos.

Published

on

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Kim Kardashian’s nude photos on the cover and inside of W Magazine. The mag hit newstands in November, but her personal outrage was saved, natch, for her reality series “Kourtney and Kim Take New York.” But does she also take us for fools?

There is no question that Kardashian has become a master of her domain. She has been incredibly successful at parlaying her initial rounds with nudity (via a sex tape and a spread for Playboy) into widespread popularity. She has played the red carpet and reality shows like a harp. In short, she is not a stupid woman. She knows the marketability of her sex appeal, and has done well in building a brand well beyond a still photograph here and there.

It is this same level of intelligence that brings me pause when I watch her stunned, tearful reaction to the photos in the W spread, which feature her sometimes fully naked, and other times covered in silver paint. She insists that she was assured that her nudity would be covered in letters and artwork.

Well… it was. Not much artwork or words, but some.

What confounds me is this: If, in fact, there would be so much of the body covered… why couldn’t the photos have been done in a bikini? Or even have some of those things you can get to cover her … you know… and a thong to cover the other stuff? (I’m trying to keep it clean here.) I struggle with the idea that a person could be so shocked that a nude spread would be so… nude.

In truth, there is little that can surprise our over-exposed society anymore. And I find nothing wrong with the pictures (except that an eight year old girl at an Airport newstand shouldn’t be able to see them so easily. They’re really not cover-appropriate… but this isn’t the first time or the last that’s going to happen.)

I just want to put it out there that I’m not buying the ‘shock and awe’ routine. And, over a drink or two, I’m convinced she would probably admit, if only with a wink, that it made for good television. And here I am, talking about the moment… so in effect, mission accomplished!

Kim is a gorgeous, savvy woman. Once again, she has drawn us in, and gotten us talking… score one more for team Kardashian!

Watch How This Hasselhoff Deepfake Takes Years Off The Actor!

Published

on

Visual effects artist Chris Ume takes countless images of David Hasselhoff from his past Baywatch days, then creates a younger avator, blending the new, artificial Hof onto the real life Hoff.

The process of this crazy magic? It’s called a Deepfake = combining and superimposing existing images and videos onto a source image or video. The process is incredible, and yet still relatively in its infancy. If things keep progressing this genre as we can only expect they will, it’s not a stretch to imagine that we could someday see an actor actress play a younger version of themselves so convincingly we won’t see how they did it.

Lizzo Is An Icon In The Making – And Here’s Why

Published

on

Mirror, mirror on the wall don’t say it ‘cause we know Lizzo cute. And by cute I mean extremely talented, gorgeous and totally inspiring!

A few months ago I was watching The Ellen Degeneres Show when I witnessed one of the most fun, exciting and awe-inspiring performances I’ve ever seen. Lizzo popped onto the screen in a sparkly, pink getup and began singing what would become her big hit song, “Juice,” – I was immediately hooked (more like obsessed). During this performance she also jammed out on her flute alongside her plus-sized backup dancers and suddenly I knew I had been changed forever. I did some more research on the rapper/singer and found out I had been sleeping on this gem! Lizzo has been doing bad all by her damn self for years, having already released two albums in the past. I am suddenly mad at every single person who neglected to tell me to jump on the Lizzo train sooner! If you’re like me and need a bit of catch up, I’m going to break down exactly why you need to know this icon in the making.

You can throw a stone in any direction and hit a triple threat nowadays. Lizzo’s brings talents we have yet to see in the mainstream music industry.

If singing, rapping and dancing make Lizzo a triple threat, what does flute playing making her?!? A STAR THAT’S WHAT! Lizzo has displayed her abilities as a talented flautist, which is not an instrument you would necessarily think of in conjunction with the rap genre making this talent all the more extraordinary. Lizzo even used her flauting skills to compete (and defeat IMO) with Ron Burgundy. Not Will Ferrell, but Ron Burgundy.

Oh, and she can also twerk while playing the flute. 

As if playing the flute wasn’t impressive enough, Lizzo can also twerk while playing. I really hope some high school kid is deciding to take band just so he/she can flutwerk their way around campus like their fav flautist, Lizzo.

Lizzo uses her platform to inspire and raise up everyone around her.

Lizzo uses her voice for more than just creating fire music, ya know. She uses her platform to defend the belief that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Her Twitter is filled with positivity and strong messages about acceptance.

 

Uhm…she’s straight up gorgeous. 

We cant forget to mention that Lizzo is a straight up beauty queen. She is known to switch up her look but I’ve never seen a bad pic of this queen. To solidify my point, she is now officially the first, plus sized black woman to be featured in Playboy magazine!

Move over Avenger’s, Lizzo has been in a comic book too!

Ok indulge the nerd in me on this one…Lizzo was even featured in a comic book!!! That’s right, she has become so influential that even Marvel comics wanted a piece of the Lizzo-pie. Check out this shout-out in Unstoppable Wasp #4!

 

So now that you have become as obsessed as I have, you are probably wondering how you can get even more Lizzo in your life. Well lucky for you, her new album dropped TODAY! Her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, is available anywhere you listen to music and let me tell you, YOU WILL LOVE IT. The album is varied and showcases all of Lizzo’s incredible range with some songs being upbeat and funky, and others being slowed down and heart wrenching. For a taste of what to expect, click below to listen to the title track of the album. If the new album still doesn’t satisfy the hunger for more Lizzo, she’s also on tour! You can click here for more info on tour dates.

Oh Lizzo…you are most definitely 100% that bitch.
