When the going gets tough, Karl puts his foot in his mouth. And other snippets …
Beyonce’s miscarriage heartache
“About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time,” she says in one scene. “And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life.
“I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like . . . I was feeling very maternal.
“I flew back to New York to get my check up – and no heartbeat. Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.”
The way she coped was by creating new music.
“I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life. And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”
Karl slags off another icon
Karl Lagerfeld is not impressed with Michelle Obama‘s new bangs. He’s told the French TV show Le Petit Journal: “I don’t understand the change of hair . . . Frankly, the fringe was a bad idea. It’s not good.”
He added that the new hairdo makes America’s First Lady look like a “speakerine” — a news anchor.
If you’ll recall, Karls’ previous kindly remarks towards women include saying Adele was “too fat” and that he didn’t like Princess Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton‘s face “She should only show her back.”
So I suppose Michelle got off lightly.
George Clooney still swoony
George Clooney and a group of friends had a lively dinner at the Grill Royal restaurant in Berlin over the weekend. Worried they might have bothered other diners, he paid the bill for a table of strangers who were seated nearby.
German newspaper Bild reported the diner saying: “They had behaved in a very cultivated manner.” The man also confessed he had no idea who George actually was.
The clueless businessman left his card with George, telling him that he hoped to one day be able to return the favor.
Ashton’s eerie new photo
Ashton Kutcher looks spookily similiar to late Apple honcho Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic jOBSs. He shared this photo of himself split with Jobs on Twitter.
Sadly, while the resemblance might be uncanny, some critics say Ashton’s performance isn’t.
UK Daily Telegraph‘s Sebastian Doggart snipes: “The poverty of [Kutcher’s] skills as a serious actor is on full display. His diction is incoherent. He clumsily signposts every emotion he thinks his character should feel.”
