The Great Gatsby failed to impress at the box office this weekend, with Iron Man 3 taking the top spot for its second weekend in theatres. While it may not have been the big ticket winner, it doesn’t mean we’re still not fascinated by director Baz Luhrmann’s 3D adaptation of the American classic. So how can we keep this literature love train going? By turning Daisy Buchanan into a Kardashian, of course.
We should really thank Carey Mulligan (who plays Daisy) for the idea as she told Vogue, ”She’s in her own TV show. She’s like a Kardashian”. So, Daisy Buchanan have what it takes to be a Kardashian? Well, we lay out some simple steps on how she can join the reality show clan.
1. Be best friends with someone famous.
Kim Kardashian first stepped into the limelight just by being one of Paris Hilton’s best friend. In order for Daisy to head into the Kardashian direction, she should be friends with someone who’s also already famous for no good reason. Jordan Baker, another Gatsby gal, would be a prime candidate for a Paris-like figure.
2. Live your life on TV
This is a no brainer. The Kardashian family are all over the media. Mulligan already said that Daisy lives her life like a movie, so this should be natural to her. Rocking the Hollywood sunglasses, and having a camera crew documenting her every move, this will surely get her on the same fame-whoring playing field as the Kardashians.
Whenever the so-called “Kristmas Kard” for the Kardashian family comes out I’m all “And I care because?!” But another other part of me (hidden way down in a dark place) is like “Okay, screw it, show it to me.”
The 2012 card includes a few more members of the family, including Kourtney and Scott’s new baby girl Penelope and Kim Kardashian’s white Persian kitten Mercy. Sadly, the cat died at four months old this December because of stomach problems so the card is somewhat of a memorial.
The card is as light and cheerful as New Years Eve, as they sip on champagne while confetti streams behind them.
Last month, Khloe Kardashian went on Ellen and told her the whole family can never get together for one sitting, which is why they often take their photos separately.
What do you think of the card. Would you rather get this one in the mail or Honey Boo Boo’s holiday card? (See it after the jump.) Read more…
With an old music video of Kris Jenner surfacing, this really takes the cake in the most horrifying things I have ever seen on the internet.
Featuring a younger Kris sporting a bob and singing while driving a car, this video was made for her 30th birthday. Singing the lines “I LOVE MY FRIENDS!” repeatedly throughout, there are also clips of people telling the birthday girl they love her (something tells me she put them up to this).
From her off-key singing to listing her favourite things to do such as Bible Study (who would have thought?!), this video is actually painful to watch.
Thank God Kris didn’t pursue a music career after this. I don’t think our ears could have taken any more.
Olympians are Beliebers too
Meet Dominique Pegg. Not only is she a gymnast on Team Canada, she’s also a fan of her fellow Canadian Justin Bieber. Just before flying out to take part in the competitions, she tweeted a picture to him with her pillow (not creepy at all, trust me). She followed with another tweet, ”I’m a CANADIAN GYMNAST leaving for OLYMPICS TODAY! Can I get I follow pleasee! Cherry on topppp!” Looks like she got more than just a follow because Justin tweeted her special message. Better late than never. AW!
Tom Parker from The Wanted makes me want to be British
I guess being British makes the Olympics a million times more fun (considering it’s taking place in London this year.) Tom Parker from The Wanted tweeted out well wishes to English diver Tom Daley. Bandmate Jay McGuiness also tweeted out this photo of him with Tom, proudly displaying their Olympic spirit through face paint.

Every Tuesday, Vanessa Marciano highlights the very best of Tumblr. This week, we’re not sure what we’re ogling over more, the delicious chocolate-dipped marshmallow treats or the Abercrombie models (yelp).
Shots, Shots, Shots! The Wanted are only getting started
Today marks one year since British bad boys The Wanted released their hit single “Glad You Came,” making girls scream worldwide and wonder if there’s some kind of sexual innuendo behind the lyrics. [homosykesual]
Summer is all about embracing colour, so throw on some rings and you’ll have your perfect accessary for the sun. Just don’t forget your SPF! [coastal-skies]
If only making fake concert tickets were as easy to get away with as using a fake ID (not that I’d know). What’s better than snagging VIP tickets to the show of the summer? [paperocean]
Mason isn’t impressed, is he?
One Direction is complete again
What would the almighty One Direction be without Zayn Malik? The teen heartthrob went home to the UK following the sudden death of his aunt but returned to his band mates earlier this week. Harry Styles was happy to have his friend back and tweeted this photo.
Which Kardashian is this?
Okay, well it’s a half-Kardashian. Even Kendall Jenner, member of Young Hollywood, feels socially withdrawn at times. Jenner used a comforting orange towel to shield her face and imagined she was somewhere less intimidating. You know, because there’s nothing more frightening than a luxurious pool in Los Angeles.
Rihanna shows the goods
Rihanna’s first task of the day was to take this topless photo of herself and share it with the world. As the media tends to do, they dissected the photo and decided that… yes… this was clearly a direct hit at Chris Brown’s model girlfriend Karrueche Tran — a declared arch enemy on Twitter. The swords are drawn. And in case you’re wondering, the photo is accompanied by lyrics from her song “Where Have You Been.”
Kim Kardashian was rushed to the emergency room after badly slicing her foot open on a glass coffee table in her New York hotel, reports E! News.
According to reports, the star of E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” was in the Big Apple to promote her big screen acting debut in next Friday’s spoof “Disaster Movie.”
A source told the entertainment site that there “was so much blood, it looked like a murder scene.”
Kardashian is scheduled to appear on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars”, which premieres Sept 22. No word whether the accident will jeopardize Kardashians appearance on the hit reality show.
Like with many stars before her, it should come as no surprise that Khloe Kardashian barely served her sentence, reports E! News.
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” reality star was sentenced to 30 days behind bars for violating probation on a DUI charge, but was released only four hours and 37 minutes later from the Lynwood’s Century Regional Detention Center.
Her early release is credited to the facility’s vast overcrowding—an issue that resulted in the early release of previous inmate Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan.
Prior to Kardashian being admitted to the correctional facility, a bomb threat was called in.
“It had nothing to do with her,” said Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore. “It was a hoax. They locked down the jail like they do when any other building has this type of activity. They cleared the scene, and the lockdown was removed.”
