The last line in the New York Times profile of one of Picasso's heirs, the artist's granddaughter Marina Picasso, is a quote from her: "I respect my grandfather and his stature as an artist. I was his grandchild and his heir, but never the grandchild of his heart." It is the perfect ending to a story filled with precise criticism of a polarizing, and seemingly terrible, character in her life.
Justin Bieber revealed a sneak peek today his August cover of Rolling Stone, which pimps the recently pubertized pop star as "HOT, READY, LEGAL." MTV compares the cover to Justin Timberlake's 2002 cover. But a more unsettling resemblance is to Rolling Stone's cover from exactly eight years ago, the August 2004 cover featuring 18-year-old Lindsay Lohan—similarly hot, ready and legal. And we all know how that ended up.
Have you heard Justin Bieber's new single, "As Long As You Love Me?" If you haven't yet, you will: Again and again until the only way to seperate its syrupy resin from your brain is a partial lobotomy. Justin Bieber fans have launched a stunningly well-orchestrated campaign to make sure Justin Bieber is the only song played on the radio this summer.
During an event celebrating the launch of his new perfume at Macy's in Herald Square in New York, Justin Bieber was attacked by a crazed fan. Trouble in Teenland! The video above apparently shows the attack.
When Justin Bieber got his groundbreaking hair cut, he put a little lock of it in a plastic box and gave it to Ellen. Now she's auctioning it off on her eBay page, with all the proceeds going to some animal welfare charity. The auction has been live for a little under 12 hours, and already it's up to $6,700! Jesus.
Remember how crushed we were when our hero Gottfried Alexander Leopold Graf von Bismarck-Schönhausen, the "reckless and extravagant host of homosexual orgies," died in July? Well, the inquest into his death is at last over! Count von Party Time died the way he lived—absolutely full of cocaine. In fact, the medical examiner said that Count Gottfried von Bismarck's body "had the highest level of cocaine he had ever seen." Well played, sir! You will always live on in our hearts and veins.
