Lena Dunham and Odell Beckham Jr.: A Breakdown

Lena Dunham Odell Beckham Gala

Okay, so here is what happened with Lena and Odell – don’t worry, it was confusing to me at first too – but let’s hop right into it.

Someone explained it perfectly on an EW Facebook comment on an article about this situation:

Lena + Odell

So… first thing first. 

Lena made an assumption about Odell Jr., on Twitter and in an interview. Lena stated that she assumed Odell looked at her like she was not his type, not even knowing what Odell’s type was at the time of this comment. I don’t even know Odell’s type. I don’t know anyone who does, famous or not.

Lena proceeded to say; “she thought she was not his type by the standards of shape he likes on women.” They were at a Gala, so Lena was presuming that his type was a model figured woman. In my attempt to try to find a silver lining, assuming that men like model shaped women is that not that weird to assume in general. The weird part comes later on – I know the situation seems very adolescence right about now.

Lena was conspiring up scenarios in her head about what Odell was thinking. Situations and movements that were going on his head, but were they really? That is the question. Lena posted a rampage on Twitter that said in Odell’s head he was thinking she was a “marshmallow.” Lena even went on to say that he was thinking she was a “child or a dog.” What all these tweets conspired up was the fetishizing of African-American men in the community. And from the looks of it, many people agreed with this on Twitter. Not only was Lena fetishizing Odell, she was fetishizing herself.

Lena then went on to say she had an attraction to Odell Jr., which is the okay part of the story. There was no issue with that aspect of the situation. But, to assume that Odell wanted to automatically have sex with her because she was a female is where this situation gets weird. Lena getting “rejected” by this athlete was too much for her to assume in this situation because he had not said one word to her at all. They never had a conversation, so why was Lena making these assumptions on Twitter and in interviews about the apparent situation at hand? The assumption that every guy wants to have sex with a walking human being is false. Not all men are sluts or the male equivalent of that.

I find it a little weird that Lena made a huge public display about the entire situation that never happened. What do you do in that situation? Where was her press team when she was tweeting these tweets? If it was about her “insecurities” all along, then why would she be Tweeting them knowing her huge fan base? Nothing against the insecurities, we all have them, but why go on a tweet spree about a scenario that never really happened?

That begs the question that should celebrities have some supervision on what they Tweet. Because if this was about her “insecurities,” she shouldn’t have been tweeting these thoughts in the first place and simply just stating them to Amy Schumer instead. But, what do I know? I mean the situation started because she told Amy Schumer what happened and they were having a discussion about it. She stated that in an interview, so that could be where it was even derived from.

The thought that these male athletes are on a pedestal is enough, but to assume they have to talk to someone at a Gala is another story. A ton of famous people do not associate themselves with other famous people at Gala’s or get together’s in a public setting. It is simply said, no one has to talk to anyone. If this was the real world, normally people don’t just go and talk to people randomly. They would scroll on their phone to try and pass the time on social media.

That leads to this question: Was she in the right? Was she in the right to tweet these thoughts? (Again, Twitter is about formulating your thoughts and posting them without thinking about it.) Celebs should have this right, because well, they are real people too; but, in these instances, it does lead to the question of supervising of their tweeting. When things like this happen, it makes me think otherwise. And from a personal standpoint, blaming this situation it on her “sense of humor” is a cop-out move. Her sense of humor does not make much sense to explain why she was tweeting what she did.

Odell was a trooper about the entire situation – he stated he did not want any problems with her and that was simply it. I am sure the entire situation was awkward for him since he never actually had a conversation with her. He was technically becoming famous for not saying a word. Which is probably weird on his end. All and all, Lena has a lot to figure out about the Twitter world – people will choose any moment to say something negative, but does that mean she should fall prey to it in the public eye?

What do you think Lena should have done? Was she in the right? Or was she in the wrong? Comment below and let us know what you think!

Kanye & Adidas Collaboration Part 2

yeezy-showAs New York Fashion Week draws to a close some of the best shows are saved for last, or planned during a show. That was the case of 2020 presidential candidate Kanye West when he made the last minute decision to announce his show during Friday’s Givenchy’s fashion show. Not worried if people would show up and excited to get the power of his media prowess to show up.

This is the second season of Yeezus’ collaboration with the usually typical shoe line. The first edition of the collection resulted in a huge hit, especially among the Yeezy Boost 360’s that became a hot commodity. Now, they are not found anywhere (unless you are willing to shell out some good change and bid on eBay).

The collection did not have much of a difla-ar-kanye-west-adidas-yeezy-2-20150916-001-620x420ferent look from the first, a lot more nudes and a lot more the Hunger Games inspired clothing (that is if they ran out of black & color to use). Knowing he didn’t have much knowledge in fashion, the “Blackskin head” took the second shot at the world of fashion and ran with it.

With that he used his star power and any1442432718_kim-kardashian-north-west-anna-wintour-seth-meyers-articlebody who is anybody in music, fashion and entertainment world showed up to support Ye’ in his latest business endeavor, his wife was not far behind the incorrigible Kim Kardashian. The Kardashian-Jen
ner family was there to show full support to their brother, Kylie and Kendall even modeled some of Yeezy’s pieces down the catwalk.

This last minute fashion show did not come without consequences, due to the late timing of the event the “Good Life” crooner caused a time conflict between another fashion designer Naeem Khan who was scheduled at the same time as West’s show.yeezy-michael-stipe-helena-christenson-debbie-harry

It is nothing less to say that Kanye wanted to make a statement in the world of fashion and what better way then inviting all your famous friends? Now thats what I call a good publicist strategy if I ever saw one.

What did you think of Kanye’s second attempt at fashion? Is it a Ye’ or Nay? Let us know using hashtag #glamorouspaper or in the comments below!

Latest in Celebrity Splits: Chad Kroeger & Avril Lavigne

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 6.34.07 PM   Seems like everyday we find out about a latest couple in Tinseltown calling it quits. The latest in breakups comes from Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger and “Sk8ter Boi” singer Avril Lavigne announcing their separation after only two years of marriage.

avril-lavigne-4-300Sparks flew for these two when Kroeger came in to help Lavigne work on her fifth album back in 2012, in between writing sessions the chemistry grew and they started dating. Nickelback frontman became very smitten with “Girlfriend” singer and in the process of writing songs for her album, and some together, he proposed after 6 months of dating. They got married on July 1st, 2013 (also known as Canada Day) in a reconstructed medieval castle on the Mediterranean Sea in the South of France.

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 6.36.33 PMMany believed this was going to be a happy and long marriage for both after Avril divorced Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley. They released a song they recorded together and it seemed that the were on happy ground. Very busy artists they told the press that they had a set of rules they followed when away from each other that they called the keys to a “successful marriage”, one of them being that after 2 weeks of separation either one of them would travel to meet up and spend time together.

It wasn’t long before the rumor wheel got going and 1 year into their marriage there avrilseemed to be trouble brewing in paradise. Lavigne in her own way shutdown those rumors by posting a picture with Kroeger showing off the new ring she got for their one year anniversary and everything got quiet again.

Recently, the songstress was battling Lyme Disease and in the last couple of months opened up about her struggles with the disease. This is why the split seemed even more of a surprise when the split was announced.

Lavigne released a statement declaring their separation stating,

“It is with [a] heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today. Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we’ve created many unforScreen Shot 2015-09-02 at 6.37.05 PMgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support.”

This was the first marriage for Chad and second for Lavigne. Tell us, are you as surprised as we are about the Lavigne and Kroeger split? Let us know using hashtag #glamorouspaper or in the comments below!

The Ashley Madison Hack & its Casualties

ashley-madisonAs we have all been informed there was a hack on a certain matchmaking site, more information continues coming to light as people dig through the massive amounts of data leaked. The fact that this is not your usual matchmaking site makes this data that more interesting. This site was used to encourage married men and women to have an affair.  You heard right, married men and women, who would register on this site to get in contact and have affairs. Various congressmen and other  government officials are only some of the many registered users found on this platform.

The most shocking is that many celebrities were discovered to have had previous accounts in this website at different points throughout the years. Some of the celebrities seemed to be involved in this breach of privacy is Josh Duggar, better known from  TLC show 19 Kids and Counting, who just barely made it out alive when it was revealed that he sexually molested 5 young girls, some who were his own sisters; Sam Radar, a christian YouTube personality who was just caught in a scandal of lying about his wife’s pregnancy and miscarriage all for the sake of catching it on video and hoping to ride on the curtails of his video’s success; and last but not least Jionni Lavalle better known as Snooki’s husband famous from Jersey Shore and its spinoff show Snooki & Jwow.

The revelation that these celebrities have used this website at some point in time has not come without controversy. The fallout of this hack has been dreadful to watch and even worse to experience.

Josh Duggar responded and confirmed to the allegations that he was registered to the 150522094624-02-duggar-family-exlarge-169infidelity website stating that,

I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife

Due to that, he has volunteered himself to a longterm rehab to deal with the issues that seem to be steaming from a hyperactive sex drive.

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 5.40.19 PM
As for Sam Radar, many thought he would never respond or deny the claims made against him although the evidence proved that damning. He just simply replied that he was “abolished from that sin”. 

 

Nicole-Snooki-Polizzi-Wedding-Album-with-Jionni-LaValle-6The most disappointing of these reveals was Jionni, Snooki’s husband and sweetheart. The public had come to love the very involved parent of Lorenzo and Giovanna. This is why the news was disheartening. But with any reality tv marriage, this couple put up a united front and Snooki responded to the claims by denying that her husband was at all involved with the scandal stating,

“So no, my husband didn’t sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn’t need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I’m a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website.” 

Lets hope for the sake of this marriage, this is true. What are your views on the fallout of this scandal? Let us know using the hashtag #glamorouspaper or in the comments below!

Drake, his secret album, diss tracks… & Serena?

If you have paid attention to media headlines in the last couple of months you have been witness to the never ending fascination that is Drake or the native from “the 6”. In the last couple of years after releasing his third album Nothing Was the Same he was able to stay under the radar but in the last couple of months there isn’t a headline that did not involve Drake being in the middle of the media firestorm. With his growing star status that train seems in no way of slowing down.

imagesFrom secretly releasing his mixtape that had album caliber If You Are Reading This its Too late to a feud with Diddy for stealing the instrumental from his hit single “0 to 100” or Meek Mill calling him out for having a ghostwriter (in music industry this is when a rapper has someone write their verses for them which is frowned upon since you are supposed to be raw and real) which led to some very interesting (and one very sad) diss tracks that only helped prove that Drake is a powerful lyricist and knows how to command an audience, giving us a song that has only risen in the charts.
