For those who have not heard of Perez Hilton, he is the king of celebrity gossip, an American blogger, and a television personality. He covers musicians, actors, and celebrities alike and posts his findings on his blog. He is notorious for the tabloid pictures that he features, frequently commenting and doodling on them.
He further elaborates on this picture stating:
"Everyone needs a good foundation in life. Lisa Kudrow needs about a gallon of it on her face.
Though we'll admit she looks much better than some of her former Friends, Lisa walked out in West Hollywood this week looking older than she already is.
And check out her forehead! It looks like a composition notebook - wide ruled!
Can we practice our cursive, please?!"
What do you think about these statements? Would Perez ever criticize a man for having slight wrinkles? Let's think about bell hooks. In Chapter 6 of "Feminism is for Everybody", bell hooks discusses women's beauty within and without. What would she think about Perez's statements? Would you consider this type of media coverage to be a major setback to the overall feminist movement, or just merely celebrity tabloid entertainment?
(For the record, I think Lisa looks great!)
