More On Richard Corman's 66 Unearthed Madonna Polaroids — And Buy His Limited New Book! Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.39.27 PM(All images by Richard Corman)

Richard Corman has granted an interview to Vogue, in which he reminisces about the time he took 66 (and there are probably a few others out there) Polaroids of Madonna one day in the early '80s, with an eye toward helping his mother cast her in a film:

“She was wearing white lace leggings under torn jeans . . . a jean jacket with graffiti on the back and the sleeves cut off, with these rubber bangles, more like friendship bracelets, that she would give away to friends. Her makeup was just so brash—these red lips, and she created that mole on the side of her face,” he says. “You’d say now that it was so chic—you walk into Opening Ceremony, Urban Outfitters, and this is what everyone is wearing—but she was a visionary. It was so bohemian and gritty and down-to-earth. She was going to vintage clothing shops. She had great taste—and you can’t teach that. And the dress, I swear she paid $2 for the gown, and it was so exquisite.”

Even more importantly, Corman's next Madonna book is on sale now — only 500 copies of the most limited edition will be available, so act fast and click here.

Megyn Kelly has a new memoir coming out—Settle for More (Harper, November 15)—that's going to be a huge 81I+AY7bHwLbestseller. Huge.

In it, she apparently confirms that FOX News—someone there—colluded with Donald Trump, feeding him questions for the debate. (Remember that when Donna Brazile was shown to have done this with members of the Clinton campaign, she was rightfully excoriated and is about to be banished from the DNC, you'll see.)

On top of that, Kelly alleges that Trump called her up and yelled at her about her proposed first question, threatening her.

Watch her make this claim and also talk about how Roger Ailes allegedly sexually harassed her in this newly released clip from an upcoming Dr. Phil appearance ...

Provides real world tested training curricula intentionally designed in active learning pedagogy. Curricula cover an expansive view of LGBTQIA+ topics including basic fundamentals such as terms and the coming out process plus advanced subjects about transgender, sexuality over the lifespan, bisexuality, safe dating, online safety, and the intersections of faith/religion and multiple identities. Educators and administrators will find this a one stop resource to implement, coordinate, train members, and assess safe zone type programs.

Sounds like an invaluable resource in the ever-changing world in which we live!

Samantha Fox Opens Up About Her Sexuality, Is Still Not In Love With Labels Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-11-02 at 10.54.08 AMFox turned 50 earlier this year. (Video still via Loose Women)

Samantha Fox came out in 2003, when she first acknowledged a long-term relationship with manager/partner Myra Stratton. Stratton died in 2015, and Fox has since begun another serious relationship with a woman.

Now, she's opening up more about her sexuality as she promotes an upcoming memoir.

This week, Fox appeared on the UK show Loose Women and talked about a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, one in which she didn't state that she is a lesbian:

I was a bit scared. People in Britain do know about it, and on Big Brother I talked about it. It was a good chance for me to speak about it in my own words ... Yeah, I kind of, I did sit on the fence a little bit … I said I don’t believe in labels.

She chalked up her past reluctance to ID as a lesbian to career fears, not totally ridiculous since along with being a singer she has always been a pinup girl for men:

For a long time I was a bit scared, because I did feel maybe—I’ve got of male fans, but since being a singer, I've got a lot of  female fans, too—but I was scared that I may lose that fanbase.

She still never said she's a lesbian, but offered:

I would say the fact I was with Myra for 16 years, and now I'm in love again with a woman again, um, I guess I would say I prefer to be with women. That's what I can say now.

Her dislike of labels survives, even if she came across as pretty woman-centric:

I always believe in love—you can't help who you fall in love with. But I can't really see myself ever marrying a guy. I love guys! I work with them all the time, they're in my band, you know, they're in my business.

She said to any women who may have been watching:

Don't be scared about coming out like I was, and worrying about what people think, because love is a great thing and you've gotta live life today.

Pulled In Every Direction: ZAYN Talks About Struggles With Eating Disorder, Anxiety In Memoir Comments (0)

581917841787711243bfe89a(Delacorte Press)

In his self-titled memoir, just out yesterday, pop singer ZAYN (aka Zayn Malik), formerly of One Direction, details his struggles with deep anxiety and what he calls an eating disorder, which directly led to his split with the boy band in 2014.

Z100 reports ZAYN told the AP:

When I look back at the images of myself from around November 2014, before the final tour, I can see how ill I was ... I realized that I wasn't eating as much just down to the amount of work that we were doing ... our schedule was kind of crazy so we were all over the place. It was just more down to losing track of … actually eating and being super busy and getting caught up with other things that 17 or 18-year-olds do, which normally entails them going out, drinking or partying.

In case you're keeping track, this memoir documents the life of a 23-year-old. It's humorous until you realize how much more living 23-year-olds are capable of doing in our world than they were in the past, no?
