Naomi Campbell: 'We need to start using more black models'

Naomi Campbell has hit out at the fashion industry for not using enough black models.

The 40-year-old supermodel said that although things have improved since she started on the catwalk, black models are still not being used as much as they should be.

She told The London Evening Standard, "We're all aware that we need to introduce more women [of colour].

"But what I've seen recently is that I've seen it go backwards slightly. We need to raise awareness again and need to start using women of colour more."

Directors in Focus: Edgar Wright

“Do you want anything from the shop?”

I doubt there are too many students who are not at least dimly aware of which film that quotation comes from. Though the TV show Spaced brought moderate success, Shaun of the Dead is the film which really catapulted Edgar Wright (and fellow collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) into the public eye in 2004, and the world is certainly a funnier place for it.

Famously tagged as ‘A Romantic Comedy with Zombies,’ Shaun of the Dead shamelessly broke with convention while celebrating past movie greats. Centring on one man’s quest to save his girlfriend (and his Mum) from an endless zombie horde by hiding in a pub, for many it became a classic immediately. For me, there are two things in particular which stand out in the film. One is the genre-defying pure ridiculousness of the concept: a zombie apocalypse in Britain is otherwise unheard of, and Wright heavily plays on British culture for laughs. The other is the film’s sheer depth: it stands up tremendously to multiple viewings as you’re always likely to uncover a buried motif.

A Mash-Up of Edgar Wright’s Films

Edgar Wright has to be one of the top directors of this generation. With a sense and style he can call his own Wright has directed three incredible films: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. But if you don’t know one or any of the three, now is your chance to get acquainted with them. Wright posted a link to a video that includes scenes from all three of his films on his twitter account today. Youtuber Joel Walden mashed up the different scenes from Wright’s movies into one 2:19 minute video. Hit the jump to see it.

Natalie Portman's co-stars talk about her less serious side.

Natalie Portman wants to make you laugh.

While she has done movies that tilt towards the humorous, such as 2004's Garden State, she has yet to appear in a flat-out chucklefest.

That will change in a big way next year when she appears in two comedies — both ribald R-rated romps. First up is No Strings Attached, directed by Ivan Reitman and due Jan. 21. She and Ashton Kutcher are best friends who attempt to have a sex-only relationship.

Oprah & Gayle -- Targeted in Lesbian Sex Tape

Just as soon as the real Oprah wiped away her tears of endearment for her bestest non-lesbianic gal pal Gayle King during a Barbara Walters interview this week ... Hustler had already locked down a couple of O and G not-really-lookalikes for an XXX re-imagining of their friendship.

FYI -- the chick on the left (Misty Stone) is playing Oprah ... and the one on the right (Bella Moretti) is Gayle.

The XXX flick -- entitled "Untrue Hollywood Stories: Oprah" -- is being released in January -- which sucks ... because it would have made one hell of a stocking stuff her.


Strip Club Offers Christina Applegate $10K to Pole Dance Pregnant

Christina Applegate - and her baby bump - worked the pole in a video for Funny or Die.

Christina Applegate's pole dancing video for Funny or Die may have been in jest, but now the pregnant actress has an offer to shake her booty for real – and earn thousands of dollars for it, too.

Applegate, 39, bared her belly and grinded against a pole to Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty" as a character named Roxy Fedaro in a (fake) commercial for a "Prenatal Pole Dancing" DVD.

"Many pregnant women experience these things called hormones because you're a total fat ass and you don't feel sexy anymore," Applegate said in the clip. "But that's why you need something I like to call ‘seducidence.' That's seductive confidence put together."

"Prenatal pole dancing works," she added, "because when men see pregnant women they know she's down for sex."

Josie Duggar Celebrates Her 'Miracle' First Birthday


What a difference a year makes. Last year, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, were devastated when their baby daughter, Josie, was born at only 25-weeks-old via emergency C-section on Dec. 10, weighing a mere 1 lb, 6 oz.

"This baby is so small, I don't think she can survive," Michelle told PEOPLE at the time.

A year later, Josie is celebrating her first birthday, laughing, playing and clapping at a healthy 15 lbs., 12 oz. "She's waving hello and goodbye," says Michelle. "She's saying da-da … Her outlook is so wonderful. It is a miracle."

According to Michelle, Josie is doing well developmentally, though she continues with monitoring and receiving oxygen when she sleeps.

"We call her our little pajama girl because she has to wear a certain kind of snap pajamas for the monitor wires," Michelle says. "She is in 6-month-old clothes now, but we have some 9-month-old ones ready for her to grow into."

Queen of Music Makes Billboard History Again, Like Longest Running #1 in History Is Not Enough

Image and video hosting by TinyPic  

Mariah Carey's new holiday track "Oh Santa!" dashes all the way from No. 12 to No. 1 in just its second week on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, to be refreshed on Thursday (Dec. 9).

The coronation is the quickest by any title since the survey adopted Nielsen BDS-monitored radio airplay data in 1993. In that span, eight previous songs soared to the summit in as little as three chart weeks. (Seven of those songs were holiday-themed, as a majority of adult contemporary stations segue to yuletide fare each holiday season).

Spike TV airs basic bitch over classy Cylon

I hope everyone who watched the VGAs has gotten over the second hand embarrassment (I know I'm still cringing).

Can anyone tell me why we had to sit through Olivia Munn talking about eating wieners and giving men boners, but didn't get to see Tricia Helfer accept her award for Best Human Female Performance? Here's what she has to say about it.

Even with NPH getting screen time, they used the opportunity to make fun of his sexuality and appearing on Broadway. The whole thing seemed a bit impromptu and he looks pissed as he walks off.

Can people stop assuming gamers are homophobic sexists or slutty girls who need attention?
