Terry Richardson Gets His Greasy Mitts All Over America's Favorite Swimsuit Model

I love including weird food links in Pajiba Love because sometimes I think "really?!" and you adventurous eaters reply "really!!!" So, tell me foodies, Sriracha Ice Cream, really!? (Village Voice)

If you stopped watching HBO's "Girls" early on in the season then you missed one of my favorite character arcs of the year: the evolution of Adam. The way, against all odds, I came to care about him shows that James Franco was dead wrong about the portrayal of men on that show. Come for Lena Dunham's use of the word "Svengali," stay for her arcane 90s starlet references. (Vulture)

The Total Recall remake has an odd viral campaign going. Do these posters make you want to go see the movie? Really?! (Super Hero Hype)

Ah, but there's nothing odd about these new "Breaking Bad" images. Strap on the Hazmat suits, it's almost time! (Collider)

Usually I leave the sporting links to Dustin but I think I can safely comment on Eli Manning's favorite sports films. Booooooo. No Breaking Away? Boooooooooo. (Hollywood)

Speaking of excellent television, the Critics Choice Awards got it right this year with much love for both "Community" and Gingers. Basically it was the Pajiba Choice Awards. (WG)

Speaking of Gingers, who makes for a better Ginger Beard, Michael Fassbender or Nicole Kidman? The Film Experience's Nathaniel and I discuss this and other really important matters in one of our Red Carpet Convos. (TFE)

Listen, I know Kate Upton (who I like because she's super cute and funny) gained any and all notoriety by posing in a bikini that was at least four sizes too small, but the new spread shot by Terry Richardson is new levels of ick. I don't know what it is you guys. Possibly the popsicle fellatio? (Celebitchy)

Speaking of disgusting photographers, a member of the paparazzi was attacked this morning by none other than Alec Baldwin. In typical Baldwinian fashion, Alec made matters worse by saying all photographers should be waterboarded. Nice. I'm no fan of the paparazzi, but I'm not sure we should make torture tactics our rallying cry. (Uproxx)

You know where my new "Doctor Who" TARDIS sticker is going? Right under the glowing Apple on the back of my laptop. That way the jock bloggers in the coffee shop will know, at a glance, that I am primo locker stuffing material. (QMx)

Speaking of Apples, the lovely Fiona has released her new album and, folks, it's fantastic. If you haven't seen her new video, check it out. It's super off-the-wall weird and involves a squid hat. You're welcome! (Fiona Apple)

And while we're on the subject of off-beat videos, I cannot wait for the release of Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master. This is the Scientology-ish film where Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a version of L. Ron Hubbard. Allegedly. Worth noting? They spelled Hoffman's name wrong in the teaser. Typos for everyone! (/Film)

For all you Tom Hiddleston fangirls (and boys), look who's going to be playing the British Hugh Hefner in a new biopic! Oh yes. (CinemaBlend)

Finally, I know this video is entirely too political and dry for Pajiba Love, but I can't help myself. Here's how the town of Troy Michigan saved their library.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • _teehee_

    re posters: YES! They have a really sweet "Gamer" vibe.

  • I can't help but see the library video as anything other than a huge middle finger to the odious Tea Party. Brilliant move, Troy, MI. And eff you, Tea Party, for thinking that holding on to your extra $0.25 each month is more valuable than literacy. I was listening to an interview with Kathleen Turner and Norman Lear (yeah, I balked at the combo too) on NPR this morning, and Ms. Turner rightly pointed out that the things that survive from all the ancient civilizations we study are their arts and literature. So take comfort, I guess, in knowing the Tea Party will one day be relegated to the trash compactor of history.

  • MonkeyHateClean

    As an American, I'm supposed to have a favorite swimsuit model? Missed that memo entirely.

  • ,

    I never thought I'd say this, but: There's such a thing as too much boob.

  • John W

    Somewhere Ray Bradbury is smiling about that library story.

  • stardust

    Huh. My future plural wife Resa hasn't commented on the Hiddlesbutt yet. I must get her over here post haste.

  • SaBrina

    I thought "plural wife" meant there were multiple wives named Resis and the plural form of that name is Resa, but that would mean "My plural wife Resa hasn't" should be "My plural wives haven't," which is how I cleverly figured out what you meant.

  • EffYouDisqus

    Godeffing dammit, stop putting up my goddamn picture when I comment as a goddamn guest, Disqus! This is why I'm bothering to re-enter my information every time I comment, so I will be picture-less.

  • hapl0

    Look what I have done to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of flyers.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    The library vid made me cry. No hyperbole. For once irony used for the power of good!

  • Slash

    Love the library story, but gotta say, this is the first I've heard of it, despite the claims that it made international news.

  • So GQ is basically Maxim now, right? They merged into one and just didn't bother telling anyone, didn't they?

  • John G.

    but they're still "gentlemen" right, in the gentleman's quarterly?

  • ERM

    I think Upton looks gorgeous in the white one-piece picture, despite Terry Richards' photography. I don't care for the rest of them, but I am not male, so...

  • Anna James

    That video makes me proud to be a librarian.

  • geofftherobot

    Please stop trying to make ''Girls" happen

  • Jezzer

    At this point I would WELCOME going back to fawning over "Community" and Christina Hendricks.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Thanks for the library video, that was the most uplifting thing I've seen in a long time. Smart and clever people are so cool.

  • John G.

    When I get done with work in 12 hours, Ima watch the shit out of that library vid. Librarians are my heroes.

  • John G.

    How did James Franco become such a douchebag so quickly? Lena nails him perfectly. I picture his Svengali manager doing fat rails of coke of a dirty glass table, watching Jerry Maguire over and over again saying "James, we're gonna make you huge, huge baby. You're gonna be on every talk show, in every indie art short, teaching your own classes, hosting the oscars, and doing tv criticism while you stop washing your hair and grow a beard. Want another line?"

  • Mrs. Julien

    How does Terry Richardson do it? She's a beautiful girl lying on grass and it looks like shag carpet and a basement porn shoot.

  • Bert_McGurt

    You know how some photographers smear Vaseline on the lens to get that "soft focus" look? It's like that, only Terry doesn't use Vaseline.

  • not telling

    He uses a point and shoot camera. He is a complete reprobate, recovering alcoholic (I've seen him at meetings), and a degenerate slimebag who no fashion mag should ever hire again since he so abuses women. That said, I once read a magazine piece on his awful life since childhood that made me feel sorry for him. Sorry I can't say which mag or when.

  • Bill W

    Wow, I wonder what kind of names you'd call him if you didn't feel sorry for him. And nice job outing him--I always thought one of the A's stood for "anonymous."

  • lowercase_ryan

    I agree, he's inexplicably famous, a total perv, and not even that skilled a photographer imo. Someday Satan will come for that soul though and when he does Terry will be Very...sorry.

  • L.O.V.E.

    As one of the members of the population with the extra appendage, I agree with everything you said.

    Oh, you're criticizing him. Nevermind.

    Upon clicking on those pictures at GQ, my computer promptly went sentient and ordered me subscriptions with GQ, Sports Illustrated, Muse, Esquire, and regrettably, Harpers Bazarr.

  • laylaness

    Have you seen Terry Richardson? He makes Humbert Humbert look like the boy next door.

  • fpkillkill

    I had a Sriracha cappucino and you think, "Ewww, Sriracha cappucino, disgusting," but then you think, "Hmph. Sriracha cappucino. OK."

    At first it was really interesting and umami-ish and smooth and rich but as it cooled down it just became nassssssty and you realize that your first reaction was the right one and Sriracha doesn't make everything better.

    That said, I would try the ice cream.

  • BobbFrapples

    I like the way the library changed the conversation. Clever!

  • Guest

    That library vid made my day and my FB wall. Thanks, JR!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    No "Rudy"? No "The Longest Yard"? Oh, Eli.

  • branded_redux

    But either of those over Hoosiers or Caddyshack? That leaves the door open for Bull Durham, Raging Bull, Slap Shot and The Natural.

    Regardless, they're all behind Ladybugs.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Oh, I just rewatched "Bull Durham". That actually is better than either of the two I watched. That's better than a good sports movie - that's just a great movie, period.

  • e

    If only that would work on a national level... maybe it could? I think there's a lot of issues that people actually would be passionate and agree about, but we need them re-framed to actually understand that.

    Also, Richardson may be skeezy, but I cannot deny the power of the boobies...

  • Drake

    People who like libraries are smart and sneaky! Who knew?

  • Anna von Beav

    MOG I need a rainbow parade of Daleks RIGHT GODDAMN NOW.

    I am not even kidding.
