LOS ANGELES – Dita Von Teese stars as the cover girl of the fall issue of boutique magazine Genlux (which hits selected stands next week), and those present at her recent photo shoot got a little more body than they bargained for.
The high-end, Japanese-themed shots of the burlesque beauty were taken by world-renowned photog Marc Baptise, who is famous for his artful nude books. Dita, we hear, got so caught up in the moment that she decided to bare all when they were done shooting the mag snaps. We're told Von Teese volunteered to take it all off and was "happy to oblige" Baptise in doing so.
But when she’s not going nude or performing on a pole earning $160,000 a party, Marilyn Manson’s ex is busy promoting MAC makeup’s fundraising efforts for people living with HIV/AIDS.
“I especially got into their promotion of teaching women about safe sex and about not being afraid to carry condoms,” Teese told the magazine. “One of the things I tell them is, ‘Most men are just going to be really happy to be there in the first place, so don’t be afraid to insist on safe sex every time.'"
Sarah Larson Spotted With New Mystery Man
George Clooney’s former flame Sarah Larson seems to love her single status — but we’re just not sure how long her lonesomeness will last.
Larson was spotted partying up at storm at new Sin City nightclub Wasted Space at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Wednesday night, accompanied by a new, good-looking guy.
When Larson wasn’t canoodling with her well-built squeeze, she was reportedly table-top dancing in the VIP section with three gal pals well into the wee hours of the morning.
Kim Kardashian Wrestles Carmen Electra, Spoofs 'High School Musical' but Wants to Take Acting Seriously
Kim Kardashian is getting ready to make her big-screen debut alongside Carmen Electra and Vanessa Minnillo in “Disaster Movie."
While the film seems like it would be fantasy for millions of males, it probably isn’t the most appropriate kick-start to Kimmy’s career as an, er, serious actress.
“I had such a good time and the directors made me feel so comfortable,” Kardashian told Pop Tarts. “It was nerve-racking but I did it, and I want to do more acting. I do want to be taken seriously as an actress.”
But before Kimmy K. puts on her rumored “Dancing With the Stars” stilettos, she’s taking time out to frolic in the waves of Cabo, Mexico, in a variety of different bikinis. She’s actually there on a promotional visit for “Disaster Movie." Wish we had her job!
Jon Bon Jovi: Celebrities Don't Do Nothin' for Politicians
Jon Bon Jovi has a firm opinion in the debate about whether celebs who endorse political candidates actually do much to sway public opinion.
"Celebrity endorsements of politicians really don’t mean much. Having campaigned for Al Gore and for John Kerry, I think that the only job that an entertainer may have is to attract media or attract people to a speaking engagement for said politician," Jovi recently told us.
It turns out that “Swing Vote” star Kelsey Grammer also shares the same thoughts when it comes to the impact a celeb has — only he wasn’t quite so willing to share.
“I don’t think celebrities impact people and nor should they,” he said. “I have my political views, but I don’t think it’s important to share.”
