Gossip Girl stars Ed Westwicke and Leighton Meester are turning up the heat for Gossip Girl’s WTF promo campaign.
Most notably, Leighton blacked out her lips in the mode of ta moko (cultural body art) that can be found from ancient Maori Princesses of New Zealand.
Whose the hottest look? Leighton Meester or the real deal, below? You decide.
Who would have thought… that Mr La Bamba (Lou Diamond Phillips) would take the King Of The Jungle crown to win, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in Costa Rica.
Perhaps he can do movies again now? He’s awesome! Lou hangs out in West Hollywood sometimes at La Fiesta Cantina… and he has a penchant for Hollywood blonde babes.
He’s also very funny! And knows and loves horis from New Zealand and has a treamendous respect for Maori culture. Congrats Lou Diamond Phillips!
IN HONOR OF MY MAORI “AUNTY “WHO USED TO FEED US ALL & TEACH US MAORI CULTURE AFTER CHURCH, THE LATE ESME PITMAN… COMES THIS POST TODAY: Esmee Denters is someone I’ve watched on YouTube for over two years. With a bit of help from both Justin Timberlake and Destiny’s Child’s Kelly Rowlands, Esmee Denters is finally on her way, outta Youtube superstardom into Music Industry stardom too. Esmee Denters is like Lady Gaga crossed with Celine Dion. And yes, this kid can sing LIVE! Esmee’s single Get Me Outta here which she recorded with JT is currently #3 on Dutch iTunes downloads. Go Esmee! :) THIS POST IS ALSO DEDICATED TO HANK DONKER & THE ENTIRE DONKER FAMILY OF HANK & THE LATE, OMA T PEACHY (HI TEAM!) and also IN LOVING MEMORY OF THE LATE UNCLE BUNNY PITMAN AND FAMILY TOO.
A blast from the hori past, 1988! Singing their hit, Ngoi Ngoi, no one in Hollywood does a finale like the Patea Maori Club! Hows that for a cultural experience Baby Jake?!
Here you go. This will help. A hori is a nickname for a Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand. The equivalent to he word ‘hori’ is the N word. So being a ‘hori,’ and now living in Hollywood and America, I guess I am sensitive to minorities’ oppression and struggle. I get really excited when I hear things like First Nations Indians get cast in Twilight‘s New Moon, because that shows that America is open to reviving people it once oppressed to ‘get ahead’ faster.
