Slumdog’s Freida Pinto’s sexy photoshoot for Complex Magazine

Hmm one has to wonder what her mum will think of this… and what will the Sri Ram Sena think? Will Amitabh Bachchan blog about it? I for one welcome Freda’s openness to such photos, they aren’t too racy and I particularly like this one. 

Her choice of magazine, however, is not so commendable. Nothing against Complex but couldn’t she have chosen a classier publication? Vanity Fair this is not.

Some excerpts from the interview:

Would you ever do nudity or a sex scene?

I don’t think I’d have an issue [doing a love scene], but it all depends on the director—what kind of work he’s done in the past. In India, I probably wouldn’t do something like that; it’s kind of taboo. It usually gets cut off at the censorship board level, so what’s the point of having shot it?


And her inanely bimboistic responses to some interview questions continue…

What’s the best way for a guy to approach you?

Back in college, if boys did the most stupid thing, like compose a silly song, I’d listen. It could be something really stupid, like a rap for all I care. 

Have you ever used your acting abilities to manipulate men?

Hmm… [Laughs.] If you have it, you gotta use it.



Chris Brown Arrested After Alleged Rihanna Assault

Now I’m not usually a celebrity gossip pundit and I don’t really follow most of it that closely, so much so that I didn’t even know that Chris Brown and Rihanna were dating (I know, I know, shame on me and whatnot) but I accidentally came across this piece of news. According to NY Daily Times:

R&B singer Chris Brown was arrested Sunday night by Los Angeles cops for allegedly beating up a woman, and insiders identified the victim as his superstar girlfriend Rihanna.

Sources said Brown beat sexy singer Rihanna, 20, after they fought in his car following a pre-Grammys party.

“She got out of the car to walk home. He got out to stop her,” said a source. “Things got physical. He hit her, possibly more than once. She had multiple bruises.” [NYDailyNews]

Damn! Who would’ve thought that cute little 16yold kid behind “Run It” was a woman-beater? Really that is horrific and deplorable, hitting a woman is one of the most disgusting things a man (not a real man obviously) could do and I hope Chris Brown rots in jail for it.

It should be noted that he apparently turned himself in complied “politely” with police. Good on him and his $50,000 worth of posted bail. That bastard.
