Lady Gaga’s Vogue Cover Leaks; Russell Brand Talks About Kissing Jennifer Garner

Lady Gaga Vogue CoverLady Gaga's March Vogue cover leaks in the forums. And it's surprisingly great. Shot by Mario Testino, Gaga wears a Haider Ackermann cream gown. This cover marks (I think) the first (and probably the last) appearance of a neon pink bob on the cover of Vogue. [Forums]

In an interview promoting his upcoming film Arthur, Russell Brand rambles incoherently about kissing co-star Jennifer Garner. First he calls her "a fairy princess," and says that her mouth tastes like "a brand of red velvet cake." So far so good (though definitely weird), but Brand follows up the flattering remarks with a smackdown: "She smashes you in the mouth [in] those kissing scenes. If I was Ben Affleck, man I’d be pissed off.” I've spent some time trying to decipher these remarks, and have decided that he's definitely insulting her, and it's confusing because Brand isn't just saying that Garner's a bad kisser, he's saying that she's a disappointing kisser. He's saying that her enchanting "red velvet" mouth doesn't deliver on its own promises. If I were Jennifer Garner, man I'd be pissed off. [HaveUHeard]

Gotta say "yuck" to the new rumors speculating about Chelsea Clinton's divorce. Chelsea's husband Marc Mezvinsky has quit his job and moved to Jackson Hole for six months, while Chelsea plans to remain in New York to complete her graduate degree. Though this is hardly a desirable situation for newlyweds, Chelsea and Marc married only six months ago–leave them alone! And if you need to fill the celebrity gossip void, get yourself a "James Franco" Google Alert. [RightCelebrity]

A couple of days ago, demonstrators in Cairo attacked Anderson Cooper and punched him in the head. Egyptian protesters may be good at ousting a dictatorial regime, but they clearly have a poor grasp of the American media landscape: Anderson Cooper is probably the least punchable of all the cable news anchors and deserves only hugs and kisses.

In related news: apparently making jokes about the Egyptian uprisal is a bigger faux-pas than wearing leggings and UGGs to a fashion show. Kenneth Cole's tweet, "millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online," caused a major scandal. A fake @KennethColePR account and #KennethColeTweets hashtag meme joined media outlets to condemn the gaffe. The outrage drove Cole to post a public apology on Facebook, and we all know nothing says "I'm sorry" like a Facebook note. [MediaBistro]
