Cue the Eye Rolls: James Franco Interviews His Feminine Side for i-D

James Franco is an odd fellow who seems to be very interested in womanhood, whether it’s posing in drag or, in this case, just being weird in general. i-D posted an interview with Franco, in which the actor’s male and female personas have a conversation about male privilege in Hollywood and society at large. 

It’s one of those cases where the privileged tries to show they are aware of their privilege by calling themselves out when really the whole thing is one big annoying navel-gazing experience for an audience who can tell that you’re still pretty clueless. While it’s very nice that Franco is thinking about privilege, we think the “female” character he’s created sounds more like a curated selection of Jezebel comments and not someone who has an actual understanding of the issues women and people of color (mentioned only briefly) face. Perhaps someone should give Franco Matt McGorry‘s number. Read on for some choice quotes from the exhausting, masturbatory exchange.

Victoria Beckham continued her duties as UN International Goodwill Ambassador this weekend at the UN HQ, speaking for the Social Good Summit about the importance of continuing the fight against HIV/AIDS. 

Beckham has been very active in trying to raise funds for women and children affected by the disease. Last year, she put her old clothes up for auction at The Outnet with some of the proceeds going to mothers2mothers, a charity dedicated to keeping HIV-infected mothers from spreading the disease to their children.  (more…)

Dolce & Gabbana Models Took Selfies on the Runway

They say art imitates life and so the adage played out on the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2016 runway. Of course, the design duo’s latest collection was bursting at the seams with heavy-handed Italian flare, embellished accessories, printed scarves and enough ornate headgear to shake a stick at. But this season, the models were armed with cell phones (accessorized with predictably ornate covers) and took selfies as they made their way down the catwalk.

We think the Kardashian-Jenners would most certainly approve. Of course, Dolce & Gabbana posted a few of the straight-from-the-runway selfies to its Instagram feed, and they are as adorable as you’d expect. Peep a few of our faves below.

WATCH: Justin Bieber Demands Some R-E-S-P-E-C-T from His Legion of Aussie Fans

Whether you’re pro-Justin Bieber or not, if you saw him walking down the street, chances are you’d probably ask for a photo with him. Maybe it’s for the claim, the LOLs or the double taps, but, unfortunately for you, the Biebs might not be so willing to jump in your selfie if you don’t treat him the way he feels he so deserves.

After arriving in Melbourne yesterday, September 27, the Canadian pop star got snappy on Snapchat, asking for some R-E-S-P-E-C-T with little-to-no Aretha Franklin sass, but soaring levels of princess, delivering a speech with some mumbo jumbo about honouring the “moment”.

“The way you ask or approach me when you want a photo with me is going determine if I take a photo or not. If I’m walking somewhere or arriving somewhere and you guys are asking me to take a photo, if I don’t respond, if I continue to keep walking, the likelihood is that I probably don’t want to take a photo at that moment,” he explained.

Mert and Marcus’ Secret Project for DSECTION Magazine Is Out! (Forum Buzz)

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott have been teasing us for weeks via Instagram about their “upcoming secret project” for an undisclosed publication. Rumors began to swirl on our forums that the shoot was for French Vogue until DSECTION magazine unveiled its fourth anniversary issue using the highly-anticipated shoot. We half expected multi-covers, but the title opted for just one featuring the photographic duo lounging around with Anna Ewers, Natasha Poly, Malgosia Bela, Saskia de Brauw and Irina Shayk.

Yet DSECTION may just as well have given us a blank page to save the publication from embarrassment (including the awkward misspelling of Saskia’s name). “I don’t like the background. The casting is great though, Malgosia looks splendid. Could have done without Mert and Marcus though. But I hate that they wrote SaskYa on the cover,” pointed out anlabe32.

“Terrible. What makes Mert & Marcus think they deserve to be on a magazine cover?” asked arlekindearrabal.

“They all shot separate or what??? This looks so trashy and baaaaaaaaaaad,” thatsfierce slammed.

Sharing the same sentiments was kokobombon: “Were they on the shoot together? Everyone seems copied/pasted on top of each other, it’s a mess of limbs… don’t like this one bit.”

Creative agreed, commenting, “Beyond cheap. They really look copied-pasted. There’s nothing hot or interesting about it. M&M are both desperate fame-lovers. They love to be in front of the lens.”

“This is so badly photographed! I’d be embarrassed if I was them! Mert and Marcus need to realize that they aren’t models. Their pose is so fake. Was it the secret project? Because it is bad!” echoed a disapproving Aizanara.

“This is the secret project they kept hyping up? It’s terrible,” condemned JessRubik.
