EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.
Kim K and Kanye West invited celebs and influencers to reenact some of Kim’s photos where she’s wearing clothes from Kanye’s Yeezy line.
This resulted in Paris Hilton looking frighteningly similar to Kim Kardashian.
And porn actress Lela Star going to McDonald’s drive-thru for an ice cream in the nip.
Loads of people took part, and the photos were retweeted to Kim’s social media during the week. When Diplo heard about the campaign, he couldn’t help but get involved. The results are fairly entertaining.
Kim Kardashian shared her amusement at the photos on Twitter with some laugh emojis, while Paris Hilton wrote “Love this #Twinning”. (Twitter)
Manchester’s Parklife have announced that Liam Gallagher is headlining, so as a result, potato peelers will not be permitted at the festival.
After Noel Gallagher introduced a scissors player to his band, Liam Gallagher decided to take the piss out his brother by inviting his audience members to peel potatoes while he performs on stage.
Apparently, a lot of LG fans were eager to take their potato peelers to Parklife this summer. In fact, there were so many queries about potato peelers that Parklife had to make an announcement.
We’ve been so blown away by this week’s launch and the demand for tickets. But even more blown away at how many people have asked to bring in potato peelers for Liam’s main stage performance! In case you’re wondering – the answer is most definitely no!
Ah well. (NME)
Amy Schumer commented on the accusations made against Aziz Ansari in last month’s Babe.net piece.
A close friend of Ansari, Schumer spoke as a guest on The Katie Couric Podcast this week. She discussed the current conversations about sexual violence about how “men are really confused right now”.
I kind of want to come up with a little bit of a code of conduct for us as women [...] We need to be teaching each other the kind of behaviour that’s acceptable.
If you have a doctor that makes you uncomfortable, or you get a massage, or you have a date with someone and they coerce you in a situation like the Aziz one, I don’t think there’s any sort of criminal charge, but I think that it’s good for everybody to learn that that behaviour’s not acceptable. It’s not a crime, but it’s not cool. And it can still really mess with a woman.
Schumer then added that she identifies with all of the women in these situations. “My mind doesn’t go right to – even if it’s my friend, I don’t go ‘Oh, but he’s a good guy.’ I think, ‘What would it feel like to have been her?’” (Jezebel)
