Yes, you read it correctly. Marilyn Manson is the new face for fashion house Saint Laurent and the campaign is pretty hideous. I like the idea of the edginess but couldn’t they have styled him or done something at all? Anything? (via Instagram)

Ibrahim Langoo, a student in the UK, found what he described as a “wrinkled brain” inside a fried piece KFC chicken at a location in Colchester, Essex. “I threw it down onto my tray immediately,” he said. “It looked like a brain. I suddenly felt grim and really sick. I couldn’t bring myself to pick the lump up so I went to the serving counter to complain. It was about 1pm and pretty hectic in the restaurant and as it was so busy none of the staff helped me.” Langoo took his complaint to the company’s website and KFC responded with an apology and vouchers for free meals. KFC officials also determined that the organ was in fact a kidney, not a piece of brain. A KFC spokesperson described the product as “unsightly,” but stressed that it posed no health risk.

Somebody needs to grab Matthew McConaughey by the scruff of his neck and tell him to JUST STOP IT. Right now. This isn’t healthy. No Academy Award is worth the damage he is doing to his liver with this extreme weight loss. Has he never heard the story of Dustin Hoffman on the set of Marathon Man? How he decided to stay up for three nights so he could look appropriately ravaged for a scene? When he came to the set, his co-star Laurence Olivier asked him why he looked so tired?. Dustin told him he’d stayed up for three days and nights. Olivier paused for a moment, then said ”Dear boy, it’s called ACTING.” Matthew McConaughey could stand to learn that lesson. This isn’t a snuff film. You don’t REALLY HAVE TO DIE for your art. Try ACTING instead. Anyway, here he is looking creepy on the set of the upcoming movie, Dallas Buyers Club. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

The “STD symptoms awareness” cupcake box on sale at Eat Your Heart Out — a pop-up shop at St. Barth’s museum in London – contains cupcakes decorated to look like gonorrhea, syphilis and herpes sores. It’s all part of a rather unconventional public health awareness initiative which includes a series of lectures on the various maladies depicted on the cakes. Other tasty treats available for purchase include toenail fungus cookies and polycystic kidney cakes, yum. Enjoy! (via Animal New York via Towleroad)
Usually people Photoshop themselves to look thinner. Not supermodel Karlie Kloss. She needed some meat put ON HER for the international fashion magazine Numéro. And this isn’t the first time her skeletal frame has caused controversy. According to Celebuzz: A December 2011 photo for Vogue Italia, “featuring Kloss in a bizarre, almost contortionist-like pose, was nixed after some suggested that it had been heavily Photoshopped, while others were actually celebrating it on pro-anorexia websites.” Yeesh.

REALLY, new head writers Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell? REALLY? Your first story for Will since taking over at Days, and you decide that having him bang GABI is the way to set the tone for your new regime? You’re going to walk back on all the progress the character has made and all the kudos the storyline received and all the respect the show has gotten from the gay community by suddenly making him, what? Bisexual now? Is it too MUCH for you to write for a gay character and have him, you know, BE GAY? As Soap Opera Confidential puts it: “Has gay soap opera storytelling really stayed on pause since flip-flopping Steven Carrington on Dynasty 30 years ago?” Even poor Chandler Massey (who plays Will) struggles to explain this travesty: “Will is battling self-esteem issues,” Massey offers. “So when you get two people who have some sort of romantic history in a room together, and both are feeling insecure about themselves, they seek any comfort they can find.” Which is twaddle. Pure twaddle. Gay men don’t suddenly get an urge for snatch when they are feeling down in the dumps. Says SOC: “I don’t see clearly established heterosexual Bo (Peter Reckell) deciding to go snog Abe’s (James Reynolds) log when he’s feeling a bit blue. So why is it that gay soap characters always want some hetero lovin’ when they break a nail?” YUCK! YUCK! YUCK! This is the worst idea since Austin and Greta were trapped in the virtual Garden of Eden! If they want to shake things up they should have Will and EJ fall into bed. But this. THIS. This is unacceptable. Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell, you dishonor the gay community. A pox on you both.
