Julianne, I’m going to say a prayer for you right now because I know you’re feet are still screaming right now after you wore these too tight shoes last night boo!
The seasoned actress showed up at the Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony Wednesday night with her toes spreading for freedom trapped inside a strappy silver sandal obviously two sizes too small — at least. Looking at the tragic photos of Ms. Moore on the red carpet, I can only assume that one, there is a stylist walking around somewhere unemployed; and two, there’s a podiatrist making a serious house call to put these toes out of misery.
I mean we’ve all maybe forgotten to pack a pair of shoes at some point and had to wear someone else’s that weren’t exactly a perfect fit — but we’re not millionaires with staff on hand to prevent and fix tragic situations like this. I honestly can’t even believe Julianne was able to walk in these heels, let alone smile at cameras in them, but somehow she managed. More importantly though, I want to know what was going through her mind as she did it.
Caption this pic and tell us what you think is going on in Julianne Moore’s head, let alone her feet’s! lol
So, some interesting pics have popped up of Chris Brown having a heck of a good time at club Gotha in Cannes. When I saw the candids on Necole Bitchie, I was like, oooh look at Chris snapping Karrueche’s neck like that. Wait, that’s not Karrueche. Then I saw him feeling up on another dark-haired girl’s behind and was like, Oh, there she is—wait that’s not her either. I figured the raven-haired, bikini clad chic he was grinding with wasn’t her, but after a few more clicks and an extended game of where’s Karrueche I found the R&B singer’s so-called girlfriend chilling by her man’s side smiling in her Herve Leger dress not breaking a sweat and I thought, Hmmm. That’s interesting.
Hitting the club with your girl is nothing knew. Even hitting the strip club with your girl and making it rain on them heauxs is becoming one of hip-hop’s favorite past times but there’s something quite different about looking and not touching when sliding a dollar into a dancer’s g-string, and rubbing down multiple girl’s bodies in front of everyone including your girlfriend of what, two years now? I’m not even going to contextualize this as a C Breezy thing because there’s no telling how much of this bumping and grinding he considered to be part of his image or pleasing the crowd after he gave a performance. My question is, could you have been Karrueche?
The club is such a dangerous breeding ground for relationships. Just about 99.9% of all people recommend that you don’t go to the club searching for a husband. I’ve always been iffy on that rule figuring if I’m a decent human being and I’m there, chances are another decent male counterpart could be there as well. But at the same time, the club’s not exactly a spot where you get chosen for your great personality. It’s an all-night battle of the T&A launched by men hoping to find a quick lay so yeah the likelihood of someone putting a ring on it after you met bent over touching the floor is slim to none. Even more dangerous the heading to the club single though, is a couple stepping out arm-in-arm. To an extent, both men and women are on the prowl for at least some attention from the opposite sex and if you don’t have some clear cut rules about what’s cool and what’s not before you buy that first vodka tonic, you’re night could go like Karrueche’s. You start out fanning your man and grinning by his side then somewhere along the lines you get the pouty face. Since Chris has a shirt on in that last pic it could either be his entrance or exit from the club that’s being captured. Judging by the sweat beads, I’ll say exit.
Looking at these two, I immediately thought back to my college days and how me and a guy I was talking to at the time would get into it nearly every week because we’d go out and dance way too hard with other people and both end up angry with attitudes. We weren’t even officially together, which means neither one of us had a right to be trippin’ like we were, and that’s also why I can’t understand how Karrueche does it. For most people boo’d up, the thrill of the club dies down for a few reasons after you lock it down with one person. If you go by yourself, seeing attractive mates you can’t pursue will be torture—or too tempting to resist which brings on a whole different set of problems. And If you go together, someone is bound to cross the line and turn the fun night out into a long argument on the ride home. I guess Chris and Karrueche don’t have those boundaries. If they did, ol’ boy didn’t just cross the line, he did a drunken back-flip and crunk danced all over it. I already had my doubts about the legitimacy of this relationship and how Karrueche could tolerate all of the non-stop rumors about Rihanna, but if he can get down like this with other women right in front of her, I’m thinking getting down with Ri Ri (if he wanted to) wouldn’t be a big deal. But I’m leaving that mess alone. My question is about him being a n**** in Paris. Would his behavior fly with you if you were his girl?
What are your rules about going to the club with your man?

I’m done trying to fight the Kanye and Kim thing. Not that I was ever leading a crusade against them or anything like that but I’ve come to understand that these two are together, he appears to be happy, as evidence by the fact that they are practically joined at the hip, and he’s already been seduced by the attention whoredom that is the Kardashian empire. That being said, there is one thing I’d like him to consider doing: slow down.
Nose wide open would be an understatement for Ye’s disposition right now. The man hasn’t licked her head in an ad campaign or anything yet, but where he is, she is, where her family goes, he goes, and if he has some place he’s supposed to be away from Kim, he’s likely not there because he’s with her. Not to mention the color coordinating and twit-picing. It’s the classic puppy love stage and anyone who’s been there knows this is also one of the most dangerous phases of a relationship because all you tend to see is roses and sunshine and you overlook all the weeds and the darkness, i.e., the BS. I feel like Ye needs to go back to his lyrics from 2006 when he wrote “Drive Slow.” The chorus was “Drive slow homie. You never know homie, might meet some h*es homie, you need to pump your brakes and drive slow homie.” I’m not going to call Kim a you know what but the last part still stands: he might want to pump his brakes a bit—or a lot.
During Cannes, Ye was supposed to give a surprise performance at Provocateur with Kid Cudi who starred in the 30-minute art film, “Cruel Summer,” the rapper debuted during the festival. But when the show began, Cudi hit the stage, Swizz Beats hit the stage, and in Kanye’s place was fellow G.O.O.D music label mate Big Sean. Where was Ye? At an intimate dinner with Kim. On the surface, it might seem cute for a man to blow off “work” for his girl, but you also blew off marketing for your movie, you also blew off an engagement without giving any of the people you were performing with a heads up, as Swizz kept dropping hints to the audience that Ye was about to hit the stage, and you also blew some of your fans tolerance. I’m pretty sure he could’ve dropped a line or two and still had a nice meal with Kim. It’s a little soon to be putting pleasure before business in this situation.
On top of this news, there are reports that Kanye and Kim have both quietly put their LA homes on the market, but since we know about it, it’s obviously not all that lowkey. The story, according to Life and Style, is that the plan is for Kimye to get a new place together in California—although they’ll only rent since it’s too soon to buy. E! says there’s no truth to this story, but I don’t exactly buy their line that the queen of look-at-me TV is moving because she wants more privacy. I’ll believe that when she stops letting cameras follow her around 24/7 for a living. E! probably just wants to break that news on their “Kardashian” finale which is why they’re in denial mode.
There’s also that pesky little detail of Kim being married. I know people date through divorce all the time but when it comes to a serial monogamist like Kim, Ye better watch out. He apparently already got heart broken by this girl once when she married Kris Humphries. If she gets too bored with him not doing anything with his music career for too long and decides to move on the next one, he’s going to be the one looking like a fool, not her.
We’ve decided Kanye may be dealing with some sort of rejection syndrome which is why he’s so enamored with Kim. He’s been wanting this girl for a long time and now that he’s finally bagged her he’s all googly-eyed and tongue-tied. I also feel like this is a little bit of Ye’s personality because he was all up on Amber like this from day one too. Sometimes that girl looked more like an accessory than a girlfriend on the red carpets and in Louis Vuitton ads the way she followed him around so PDA and getting sprung aren’t exactly new to Kim. But when I think about the rumors that Amber and her brother might have been stealing money right out from Kanye’s nose, I can’t help but think about the craziness he might not be sniffing out with the Kardashian klan. They definitely don’t need his money, but Kris Jenner, who he probably needs to watch out for more than Kim, is going to find some use for that man other than being her daughter’s boyfriend and he better make sure it doesn’t ruin his brand or his earning potential.
A lot of people think Kanye and Kim are two peas in a pod who make a great match. I don’t quite see that yet, but what I do see is a man well beyond smitten who jumped head first into something that’s so much bigger than him. If he doesn’t want to be a pawn in one of the Kardashian’s grand schemes he better slow it down just a tad and open his eyes—and close his nose just a bit. There is one bright spot in all of this that I have to admit though—at least Kim’s off the athletes.
Do you think Kim and Kanye seem to be moving a little fast?

This has been a big week for fashion thanks to all the events going on for Hollywood’s A-listers. And some of our favorites didn’t disappoint as they had jaws dropping and flashbulbs on fire as they hit the scene. Now was it a good jaw drop or a bad one? Let’s look through the following photographs and find out.
This woman is 46 years old? WOW! The stunning singer hit up the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Cap d’Antibes in this flowing Emilio Pucci gown. The halter dress also had a deep v-neck which definitely showcased Jackson’s girls, and a slit that went up her lower thigh to show off those gams. The train was long, as were her locks, and on her feet were futuristic Giuseppe Zanotti wedges that didn’t have a heel. While I’m not feeling her makeup, otherwise, Ms. Jackson looks pretty freaking awesome. Steal! Just let me get in the gym real quick first…
Jennifer Hudson has a great new shape thanks to her work with Weight Watchers and now she’s showing off her more toned curves by wearing some sassy new styles. Here is our version of the figure-flattering look she wore recently at an event in Cannes.
