The Entertation Index: October 7

October 7, 2010

Sorry, no croissants. Or calories in general.

Fitch, Abercrombie & – Ad agency Shahid & Co. watched A&F’s recent Montauk Panoramic Hotel shoot so closely that the models’ eating, drinking, and workout schedules were monitored around the clock.  So draconian were the rules that male model Florian Van Bael was allegedly fired for eating a croissant at an improper time.  Asked when would be an appropriate time for models to eat, a spokesman for the company reportedly said, “Never.”

Grit, True – I’ve never seen the original, which every older member of my family has told me is a grievous sin.  Well, now I get my own True Grit, directed by the Coen brothers.  What say you now, Gramps?

Hall of Fame, Rock and Roll – Congrats to the 2011 nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which include Alice Cooper, Tom Waits, The Beastie Boys, Neil Diamond and L.L. Cool J.  Among those snubbed again in 2011 were Cyndi Lauper, Devo, The Cure, Peter Gabriel and Duran Duran. Simon Le Bon was reported to be so disheartened by the news that he asked his boss if he could leave Burger King early.  (H/t to C.M.)

Heigl, Katherine – The Life As We Know It actress stopped smoking real cigarettes by using electronic ones, sort of bridging the gap to total smoking cessation.  Charlie Sheen supposedly said something similar about The Fleshlight and prostitutes.

Kardashian, Kourtney – Kim and Khloe’s sister wants another child, but says it may be difficult because post-pregnancy sex can be painful for her and she’s embarrassed to buy lubrication.  In fact, the last lube she used was a few years ago when the Kardashians crammed themselves into America’s televisions.

Usher – The singer and his mother have patched things up, but he wishes she would have attended his wedding three years ago.  It was a personal rift that led to her absence from the ceremony and not, contrary to popular belief, a disagreement over Usher’s wedding-décor decision to have “a bouquet of fresh booties at each table.”
