Hollywoods Hottest New Couple.

Action-Packed Actor Michelle Rodriguez and Possibly the most talked about Super Model in the world right now, Cara Delivigne, have come out as a couple.

Yes, 35-year-old Rodriguez and 21-year-old Delevinge have been the subject of speculation for weeks after they were spotted getting up close and personal at several events.

The pair were seen leaving the Prince Concert on Monday, looking slightly wrecked. As well as managing to upstage the NY Knicks courtside by posing for selfies and basically nibbling each others faces off, again Wrecked. A doting Rodriguez told The Mirror:

“It’s going really well. She’s so cool. When we started hanging out I just thought she was awesome, and we have the best time together. She’s hard though. You wouldn’t want to mess with her in a fight.”

Congrats to the pair! Despite the 14-Year age gap, I think they make a kick-ass couple! And it seems like its been an eventful week for the LGBT community after Inception star Ellen Page also came out as a lesbian, but No surprises there Ay? The actor gave a speech at the Human Rights Campaign Foundation “Time to Thrive” conference in Las Vegas. She told the packed venue:

“I’m here today because I am gay… And because maybe I can make a difference to help others have an easier and more hopeful time.”

Break the Internet

Kim Kardashian’s latest cover shoot for Paper Magazine is turning heads…

We’ve been in two minds about the shoot. Our first thoughts (naturally) were Damnnn, look at that Shiny Donkey. And not necessarily in a negative way. In the complimentary way Rappers talk about the female leads in their videos. Or the way a man throws money eagerly to show appreciation of his favorite Pole Dancer.

On one hand, Kim K wants to reassert her sex symbol status and on this occasion has succeeded. Her interviewer described her ‘golden whiskey skin’ as

“..free of wrinkles, crow’s feet, laugh lines, blemishes, freckles, moles, under-eye circles, scars, errant eyebrow hairs or human flaws of any kind. It’s like she comes with a built-in filter of her own”

But then surgery will do that wont it?

And She is 34 and a new mother and is therefore fast running out of time to flaunt her physic. And As younger siblings Kylie and Kendall reach maturity and their fan base continues to grow, her lack of discernible talent is becoming more apparent. Sure, she’s a clothing designer but then who isn’t these days? To sell clothes all you need is a fan base. 

Beyonce, for example, felt the tension when she took a break from music to focus on being a mother. She knew her throne was in jeopardy. So came out with a whole album, as well as accompanying videos, followed by the On the Run tour with her husband (&Child in Tow). Now that’s how you reassert your dominance. 

Rihanna, admittedly lacks vocal credentials but her team continue to bring the hits. And even though her Fashion program never took off, it’s apparent she has keen sense of style. Her photo shoots and outfit choices tred the tightrope of Couture and Soft Porn - And that’s what High Fashion is. So even if you don't necessarily like listening to her, you defiantly enjoy looking at her, with the Mute button on.

However, Kim K has little to fall back on which is why she’s resorted to selling Sex again. Circa 07, She and Ray J know better than anyone how being naked can give that much needed boost to your career (not so much for RayJ of course)

What we don’t understand though, is for a couple trying so hard to be respected, as opposed to the Media Monkeys they are continually portrayed as, why would you risk it all? They fought so hard to get onto the cover of Vogue. This was to the reluctance of Anna Wintour and the Vogue Fan base whose comments included 

“Disgusting! These two are the epitome of VULGARITY. You will never recover from this low …” “RIP Vogue” “Anna Wintour … it’s time to step down …”

so to go Full frontal now just seems to be a step too far. Even desperate? but suffice to say, she achieved the desired result and broke the internet. If only for a few hours.

These controversial Illustrations by Spanish Artist Luis Quiles highlight the absurdities of Modern Culture.

His raw and surreal illustrations portray the uglier symptoms of Western society and features topics including; the force feeding of cheap food to the docile and lethargic masses; The Hyper-sexualised representation of Women in the media; The censorship and consequences of Free-speech; The realities of the relationship between Religion and poverty;The hold Social media has on the emerging generations; The Real victims of war and The Power of brands (and the Endorsement Monkeys they employ) 

Unsurprisingly the images were received with mixed reviews, having been deemed controversial due to their highly graphic nature. But needless to say they are brutally engaging and provide an insightful and powerful social commentary.
