Lady Gaga vs. Megan Fox vs. Lily Allen (NSFW) (Updated)

I look at four celebrity blogs daily. The Superficial primarily, because it makes me laugh. The blog has made it clear they’re an Obama supporter. Also, their sister site Geekologie is really interesting and funny too. Then, I also look at What Would Tyler Durden Do (WWTDD), I Don’t Like You In That Way (IDLYITW), and Egotistic. Mostly I look at them to see naked and half-naked celebrities. That, and reading all the stupid shit they say. I don’t care much for who is dating who or whatever. Unless it involves Christina Ricci. On a side note, I do have an issue with WWTDD because the blog writer can tend towards racism and gross misogyny. I also look at Go Fug Yourself, because they’re funny and genuinely good blog writers. It’s fun to see celebrities wear crazy, ugly shit.

And, speaking of wearing crazy ugly shit, we have Lady Gaga.

What the fuck is this shit? Why won’t she ever wear pants? Underneath all the crap she wears, she’s only mildly attractive. But, she literally thinks she’s a great sex symbol who is changing what “sexy” means. She also thinks she’s some great artist, despite writing pop-rave that’s no more unique than anything done in the last 17 years. Don’t get me wrong, she does have great legs. But, I think I speak for most men when I say that there is nothing sexy about her ridiculous getups.

Then you have Megan Fox:

The blogosphere and men’s magazines go nuts for Megan Fox, calling her perfection. Nevermind that her boobs are fake, and probably she had a nose job. Admittedly, she can look sexy and is clearly beautiful. But, I feel like she’s beautiful in this superficial, cliche way. And, I feel like I see real, non-famous women who are this attractive all the time. But, because she was in Transformers and has tons of stylists and makeup artists and costume designers, she’s held up on this manufactured pedestal.

And, my point of this blog entry is this:
I’d much rather look at Lily Allen:

Lily Allen is a really cute girl. And, sure she has a bit of a belly, and she has small boobs (I prefer small boobs), but at least she looks like a real person you could talk to. And, she clearly is comfortable with herself. She doesn’t need to look perfect all the time, dragging an army of stylists around with her. She looks like Lily Allen, a unique person. While someone like Megan Fox could be called Raegan Wolf and it wouldn’t matter. I feel like this is the problem with celebrity. Either you make yourself look overly insane and costumed, like Lady Gaga, or like an interchangeable sex symbol like Megan Fox. Either way, it’s not reality. While, Lily Allen looks like reality. I think i’m the only person who seems to care about celebrities looking like real people, but oh well.

As for the NSFWness, here you go

Remember when I said my life is complete?

Little did I know it was still missing something:

Amy Winehouse topless pictures!

She has nice boobs. Put some weight on too, which is nice to see. Maybe if she’s going out and having fun, it means she’s starting to get healthier and will work on a new album. She’s famous for a reason, remember?

Oh, and for the hell of it, Lily Allen topless, if you wish. Personally, one of the many reasons why I love Lily Allen is because she looks real. She’s gorgeous, has a great body, but isn’t 100% in shape and hasn’t had thousands in plastic surgery done. And, she clearly doesn’t give a shit what you think. I talked about this subject back on┬ámy entry about celebrities without makeup.

Finally, something for the ladies: Barack Obama topless! Damn, I feel like less of a man now in so many ways…

Lily Allen covered “Womanizer”

My life is now complete. And I’m only 30. Ugh, I’m 30 = (

The videos keep getting pulled down, so this probably won’t work for long.

12/18/08: Updated with working video.

Someone psychoanalyze this.

Lately the only music I feel like listening to is pop music. There’s the aforementioned Britney Spears. But, I’ve become infatuated with a very successful (outside the US) British girl group called Girls Aloud. They’re five girls put together by a reality competition show in 2002 and largely produced by a production house called Xenomania. They’re like a Spice Girls, except not cheesy so you don’t have to feel quite so guilty about liking them. And they’ve had five successful albums so far.

Here’s a video of them performing a song off their 2008 album on a British competition show called X-Factor.

Yes, that’s Simon Cowell. The middle one in Girls Aloud on stage is Cheryl Cole, maiden name Cheryl Tweedy, whom Lily Allen wrote a song about called Cheryl Tweedy. If you know that song, now you know who Cheryl Tweedy is.

Here’s another live performance from a summer music festival this past summer in England.

Anyway, what the hell is wrong with me? I know someone can psychoanalyze the shit out of this.

As if I needed more reason to love Lily Allen.

She’s ripped apart that talentless idiot Katy Perry, but to Katy Perry’s credit she knows Lily is too awesome to fuck with.

And for the hell of it, Lily Allen’s wonderful video for the first single “The Fear” off her new album coming out in February.

Some random thoughts.

I just realized the two songs I’ve been listening to most lately are “Hug My Soul” by Saint Etienne and “Find My Soul” by Sally Shapiro.

Juno was a good movie and I had no problem with it. Nothing I wanted to change. But, I didn’t feel passionate for it either. But I just watched Enchanted, the Disney movie with Amy Adams, and I adored it.

I’m happy Jon Stewart is giving Obama just as much a hard time as anyone else. I support Obama, but I also support lack of bias.

I would argue Chuck Palahniuk is in some way a (very modern) poet.

I think it’s terrible that people accuse Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Lily Allen, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Mandy Moore, etc of being fat. There’s nothing wrong or unattractive with a girl having a little weight. I wonder how non-famous girls feel reading this shit. There’s a big (no pun intended) difference between a 5′ 6″ girl weighing 150 versus 200.

Lily Allen

There is so much awesomeness in this picture I had to post it. She’s adorable.

The two new songs on Lily’s Myspace page are really good too.

Coachella, or how to overdose on live music.

It would take a long time to tell what kind of experience I’ve had the past 5 days. I’ll say that Los Angeles is fucking disgusting and the highway system is hellish. I’ll also say my opinion on camping has been reversed, I kinda like it now. There are no words for Bjork. Rage Against The Machine is the most powerful band I’ve ever seen. !!! are the most fun you’ll ever have at a show. Lily Allen is adorable (despite forgetting her lyrics). Shaun Ryder (Happy Mondays) put a huge smile on my face. Tilly And The Wall are precious. I’ll list the bands I saw at Coachella. All sets were 45 minutes to over an hour long. Pics will be forthcoming.

Noisettes
Tokyo Police Club
Tilly And The Wall
Arctic Monkeys
Jesus And Mary Chain (guest appearance by Scarlett Johansson)
Interpol
Bjork
Fountains Of Wayne
Regina Spektor
Peter Bjorn & John

My favorite albums of 2006

First, seeing as I had much less in the way of disposible income this year, I was not able to buy all the albums I was interested in. Second, beyond that, no one is ever able to listen to every worthwhile album that comes out in any year. This is just a list of the albums I’d most recommend from this year.

10. Voxtrot – Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, & Wives EP / Raised By Wolves EP / Your Biggest Fan single (add the three together, and it forms one fantastic album)
9. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Show Your Bones
8. Neko Case – Fox Confessor Brings The Flood
7. CSS – Cansei De Ser Sexy
6. Various – The World Is Gone
5. The Pipettes – We Are The Pipettes
4. LCD Soundsystem – 45:33 (iTunes only)
3. Lily Allen – Alright, Still
2. Belle And Sebastian – The Life Pursuit
1. The Knife – Silent Shout

Honourable Mention: The DFA Remixes Chapters 1 & 2 (I can’t choose between them, so they’re not in the top 10)
Best Argument For Sampling As Art: Girl Talk – Night Ripper
Disappointing Second Albums: Kasabian – Empire, Scissor Sisters – Ta-dah!, The Rapture – Pieces Of People We Love
How To Be Consistant: The Fiery Furnaces – Bitter Tea, The Divine Comedy – Victory For The Comic Muse
Love It Or Hate It Single I Love: Gwen Stefani – Wind It Up
Worst Song Ever: Hinder – Lips Of An Angel
(Very) Guilty Pleasure: She Wants Revenge
