We Can’t All Be Beyoncé

10 May

My friend Krishna, who’s also a talented artist, alerted me to the fact that skewed body image isn’t limited to the West. Indian actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was once deemed the most beautiful woman in the world, is now being called “aunty” – a not-so-subtle (and not-so-kind) jab at someone who’s put on a bit of frump.

Granted, Aishwarya gave birth to a whole human being just last November. But given Beyoncé’s hasty – if unrealistic – post-baby weight loss, expectations for celebrities of this calibre have just increased.

So start starvin’, Aishwarya! That baby doesn’t need you nearly as much as the film industry does.

Eat Christina’s Short Shorts

10 May

The Daily Mail isn’t in the business of giving Christina Aguilera a break. Thankfully, The Scrawn won’t let the Daily Mail’s irresponsible reporting go unnoticed.

Here, the rag proves that it can’t make up its mind when it comes to women’s bodies. What’s the difference between “flaunting your curves” and “making a spectacle of yourself?” Apparently, the mean is Christina.

It’s Audrina’s Birthday!

10 May

But more importantly, how does she look in a bikini? That’s the only question on Us Magazine‘s mind when celebrities age.

You’re almost 30, Audrina. And you know what happens after 30? Not BBQs, I tell you what.
