John Inman dies at age 71. I am not at all surprised to see that he had a long-term partner, Ron Lynch.

It's a sad day for British comedy.

Posted for [livejournal.com profile] dustmeat, who often seems skeptical when I tell her that celebrities and fashion models look ragged out in Real Life, just like us. They just have the magic of Photoshop for all their print work!

Check out the Before picture of my homegirl Gwen here, on this photographer's Flickr account! Then, click through the other pictures, to see how Sharon Stone and Janet Jackson magically lose their wrinkles when hit with the Photoshop stick!

Anyone can be gorgeous if you have the right lighting, a professional makeup artist to spackle you up, and a photographer who is willing to Photoshop the fuck out of your face! It's all so simple! There's a reason regular women like us can't look just like the women in magazines, and that's because Photoshop filters don't work in the real world. ^_^

(And Gwen, I totally love you again for seeing you look real, with tired bags under your eyes. I completely forgive you for sampling "The Lonely Goatherd" from The Sound of Music for your latest single (YouTube link). I'm sorry, but that shit was wack, lady!)

[livejournal.com profile] leborcham posted a link to a blog with photos from the Grammy Awards. Going by the batch of Scarlett Johanssen pictures there (scroll down), it looks like Scarlett lost a bunch of weight. I am fairly bummed out about this, because hey, I liked her as-is, and every time I see a female celebrity start losing weight, it upsets me. Why? Well, because usually, they're not even remotely fat to begin with, but they get obsessed with being skinny. (Witness: Christina Ricci, who was 5 feet tall and 100 pounds and a size 2, and she still worked hard on becoming a skeleton. Or Brittany Murphy, who was so cute and curvy in Clueless, and who now looks emaciated in her current movies, like the one [livejournal.com profile] suarez refers to as My Nanny the Skeleton, which I think is actually called Uptown Girls...)

I know Scarlett was blonde to begin with, but the strange blonding effect that is sweeping Hollywood is getting old as well. What happened to celebrities trying to have their own look? The current thing of "I'll dress slutty and have a lot of blonde hair, regardless of my original ethnic background!" is really boring. It makes everyone look the same. And if I was more awake, I could probably make some pithy remarks about how punching everyone out of the same scrawny, trampy, blonde mold is commodifying women as products, but I can't get more coherent about it yet.

I want girls in Hollywood to stop losing weight like fiends. I want them to eat food and stop emulating fashion models, who live on a diet of cigarettes, methamphetamines and vodka. In old Hollywood, there was room for Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Jean Seberg right next to Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and Jane Russell. Why can't celebrities have more than one shape?

In other things, work continues. Yay.
