Michelle Williams has been accused of racism after appearing dressed as a Native American on a magazine cover. The British magazine, AnOther, shows Michelle in long braids, beads and a feather in her hair.
The cover went viral as blogs labelled it ‘offensive’, ‘racist’ and ‘sterotypical’ and demanded an apology.
New York based online magazine Refinery29 slated the cover, stating: ‘We can’t believe how offensive Michelle Williams’ latest cover is.’
‘They added super-long, thick, black extensions and braided them — and darkened her eyebrows,’ they wrote. ‘Then there’s the makeup.
‘The photo is in black-and-white, so you can’t tell for sure if they’ve altered her normally fair skin, but there is some definite contouring around the nose and the cheekbones that not only makes her look nearly unrecognizable, but also appears to mimic the stark relief of facial features often seen in early portraits of Native American women.
‘The same mimicry applies her stoic, unsmiling pose – also a typical trope in that particular genre and period of art history.’
Feminist blog Jezebel was equally incensed.
‘Am I glad that unlike most racist, stereotypical caricatures of American Indians in pop culture today, Michelle is not practically naked? Yes — but just as Blackface is never okay, Redface is never okay. Ever.’
A publicist for the 32-year-old did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
What do you think? Is Michelle’s cover racist?
Lady Gaga, 26, is healing from a recent hip surgery, and she’s doing it in style!
The singer is rolling around in this one-of-a-kind luxury wheelchair, complete with a calf leather seat, a leather canopy, and a 24K gold frame. The chair was designed by luxury brand Mordekai.
Designer Borochov said in a statement that he created the ‘chariot’ in a week and took inspiration from a throne.
‘I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen,’ he explained.
Gaga was pictured reclining in the plush chair in a photo posted online by Terry Richardson.
With her blonde hair curled and dressed in what appeared to be a dressing gown and flat shoes, she was taking a break from her usual eye-catching clothing.
Last month Gaga posted a picture of the chair on Twitter introducing it to her followers as ‘Emma’.
It came after the Bad Romance singer was been forced to cancel all 25 remaining U.S. dates, after suffering a severe injury to her right hip that had been causing her chronic pain.
She thanked her fans for their support.
‘As they wheeled me into surgery today, I thought about all of your pain and perseverance, your unique family situations, school environments, health issues, homelessness, identity struggles – sometimes you are so brave that it terrifies me,’ she wrote.
‘So I thought to myself, I’m alive, I’m living my dream, and this is just a bump in the road. I’m grateful because this is temporary, and for some it is not.’
I mean if you can afford the chair…. why not, right? (Although I’m sure she didn’t pay for it…)
Olivia Wilde lands the April cover of Marie Claire, and inside the magazine, the actress opened up about her first marriage, when she was 19-years-old.
The actress, who split from her Italian prince husband, Tao Ruspoli, believes that getting married so young “stunted” her growth. “I knew the only way I was going to grow the f**k up, was to learn to take care of myself.”
Wilde opens up further about her divorce in Marie Claire’s April cover story.
“I had grown up with Tao; we had just drifted,” she explains. “I felt I had something to prove. If you fall off a horse, you get back up. I am not a quitter. I hung on for as long as possible, until it was more hurtful to stay…I’m so grateful for the pain and the heartbreak. It gave me the courage to leave and brought me to the great love of my life.”
That love, of course, is current fiance Jason Sudeikis.
Wilde tells Marie Claire, upon meeting Sudeikis at the 2011 finale of “Saturday Night Live,” “I was just learning to be by myself. We were both seeing people but were single. He seemed to really see me, see through the bullshit. He said very few words and couldn’t keep eye contact. He was so handsome, and he could dance.”
When the pair had their first date six months later, Wilde recalls, “I thought, ‘He won’t be interested in me; I’m not a contender.’ He was so cool, so funny – I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He’s a brilliant actor with a brain like lightning…I felt like fresh meat at the market…I thought, ‘I’m not beautiful enough or his type.’ I couldn’t wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.! He didn’t kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed.”
Wilde, 29, and Sudeikis, 37, confirmed the news of their engagement in January.
Wilde has never been shy about discussing her connection with her beau. At a Glamour event in October, Wilde announced that she had fallen “blissfully, hopefully, wildly in love,” revealing that she and Sudeikis “have sex like Kenyan marathon runners.”
I think she and Jason make a really cute couple!
Olivia looks gorgeous in these pictures!
