Glorious Kimye!

So, everyone everywhere has heard that our glorious prophet Yeezus and his very own Mary Magdalene have made it official. Yeah, that’s right, we’re getting biblical and it’s actually amazing how right that is, now that I think about it. Kanye has already clarified that he is our messiah, so I think we can all quickly agree on that. But I did some research (i.e., read exactly one Wikipedia article) and there are some stunning comparisons between Kim and Jesus’s groupie, Mary. Jesus cast out seven demons from MM and Kanye has done the same for Kim! To name just a few:

1. De-prostituted!: some scholars think MM may have been the Julia Roberts to Jesus’s Richard Gere. But now, KK will never have to be golden showered on video again because we all know Kanye isn’t interested in that mess (by “that mess,” I mean ladies).

2. Barbie Makeover!: Kanye sashayed right into Kim’s closet and fashion mavened the shit out of it. If you don’t like it you just don’t get it, peasant!

3. Literal exorcism!: some reports say that Kanye hasn’t been feeling Kris and will soon cull Kim from the Kardashian herd. If true, I have no doubt that he will ultimately rid Kim of Zuul for good.

Good for you, Kim Magdalene! You win your second baseball-sized engagement ring and a psychotic despot!

Unrelated post-script: His desperate addition of “E”s in his marry meeeeeee sign will keep me in cringes for the rest of the evening.

Scott Disick as Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman: Blasphemy!

ScottDisick

Guys. Have you watched Kanye’s American Psycho “short film,” (so now he’s a rapper, a poet, a god, and a film producer, if you’re keeping score) starring Scott Disick? If not, please go here and come back with your thoughts ready. You made need to take a slug of your Franzia to get through it.

Painful, right? My face is hurting from cringing so hard. And my brain is hurting from how confused I now feel about Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I have taken it for granted that the show is “acted” and “scripted,” a la the Hills. (Sidenote: Remember how sad you were when you realized the Hills were a lie? I’m still reeling). Recall the paparrazzi shots of Kim and Kris filming reshoots? Holding suspiciously script-like papers?

But seeing Scott’s performance in this, I’m having a hard time reconciling my belief about the veracity (or lack thereof) of the show with this video. Maybe he’s just only talented as acting as himself? I’m not even sure I could convincingly act as myself. Does that mean the Kardashians, et. al, are… gulp… talented? I need to go lay down.

For the Girls Who Have Everything…

Celebrity gift registries – yay or nay? I am against gift registries in general, which means I’m also always the resident curmudgeon at all things bridal. The idea of requesting (demanding?) specific items from one’s guests (and, of course, knowing exactly how much they spent on you if one were inclined to do the math) just totally gives me the icks. Not to mention, the registry is proof of the receiver’s total expectation that the givers will, actually, be giving. For anyone interested in the subject, Rebecca Mead’s excellent book, One Perfect Day: The Selling of the American Wedding, is a great read (American couples registered for $9 BILLION worth of gifts on registries in 2006. $9 BILLION!).

With that said, I’m not sure that I feel any sort of specific ickiness to celebrity registries, though I think there are many who do. On one hand, why should we apply higher standards to celebrities – really, based on experience we should be applying lower standards pretty much across the board. On the other hand, why are the girls who have everything, and the money to buy whatever they don’t, asking for additional things (instead of, perhaps, donations to their favorite charities)? Before writing this post, I presumed that I would have a timely topic: Kim Kardashian, patron saint of brand new Baby Yeezus, was sure to have an outrageous baby registry, right?! See excerpts from her crazy wedding registry here. Alas, it appears from reports that K&K may have actually refused gifts. I guess we have to wait until their wedding. Please, please gossip saints, deliver unto us a gift registry replete with solid gold, diamond-encrusted, Yeezus on a K-shaped cross teething rings!

Instead, we have to appease ourselves with Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s wedding registries for our first celebrity registry look.

According to the Huffington Post, the recently married couple registered at Crate & Barrel and Williams-Sonoma – just like us common folk! Although their total was about 3 times as much as the average wedding registry ($14,500 compared to $5,000), they registered for the same useless crap that the proletarians do.

Have you ever found yourself brushing your pastries, and curse the gods, thinking – IF ONLY I had a 1.5 inch brush?! My 1 inch brush is too, too small, and my 2 inch brush is just too, too big?? Well, no, neither have I. But presumably Goldilocks Cavallari has.

An $80 “firestarter” (um, I feel fancy if I use one of those trigger things instead of a match)? Of course, dahlinks!
