Instaglam Slam: Covering Miley Cyrus Comments (0)

Mert-Marcus-Miley-Cyrus-W-nudeThis is not a candid.

For W Magazine's "Social Media" issue, they weren't kidding—they enlisted Ronan Farrow to speak with Miley Cyrus. Miley, unrecognizable on the cover and inside in "instaglam" shots by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, has a lot to say about her station in life:

"You know, I've made my money. If no one buys my album, cool. It's fine...I don't give a shit. I'm not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright-colored T-shirts. You know, it's like, I'm not making any kind of statement. Anyone that hates on you is below you, because they're just jealous of what you have."

Miley also scoffs at the type of porn guys love ("those girls don't exist") and, interestingly, identifies with "Blanche" from A Streetcar Named Desire:

"I'm Blanche to a T, complete psycho."

The issue hits the stands on February 8.

Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron heat up W (August 2012) in the same way a solar flare would heat up an errant space shuttle. Wow.

Boy Culture Turns 6: My Favorite Posts Comments (13)

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.

Here are my favorite 100+ posts out of nearly 11,000. Please take some time to read (or re-read!) a couple and tweet or Facebook any you like.

Kids, This Is NOT All Right Comments (11)

I love Mark Ruffalo enough to tell him I don't want to see him as a Sid & Marty Krofft character meets Stevie Nicks. From here.

ReKlein Comments (13)

Many Madonna outtakes from that most recent Steven Klein W session are here. Some I'd already seen, some I hadn't. The budding couple looks pretty hot in some, a bit ragged in others.

What An End She Has With Jesus? Comments (10)

Madonna's year-long love affair (if you believe Madonna) or showmance (if you believe some of her suspicious fans) with Jesus Luz is reportedly—accent on reportedly—ovah (if you believe the Chicago Sun-Times). He didn't like it, so he didn't put a ring on it, but that's okay—Madonna's more fun as a single lady with various suitors.
