Bindi Irwin
is many, many things: she's an intelligent, thoughtful young lady, she's caring and charming, and she's absolutely gorgeous. On top of all of those things, she's also the girl pictured on that magazine cover up there. Weird, right? Because if her name wasn't placed right over her body, we would have had no idea who this person was.

In case you need a refresher, here's what Bindi typically looks like:

And here she is, all made up:

Even with the differences in lighting and makeup, both of those girls are very clearly Bindi, the grown up version of the little girl we saw on "The Crocodile Hunter." But the girl on the magazine cover? Maybe the photographer used a filter to make her look like her own older, slightly edgier cousin, but something is simply not right. There is absolutely nothing whatsoever wrong with Bindi or her face, and it's a damn shame that we can't just assume that a photo taken for the media will actually resemble its subject.

On Friday, Scott Disick finally seemed to make some sort of comment on Kourtney Kardashian and their breakup in the form of an Instagram post, saying that "the grass isn't always greener" while attending a wedding, presumably alone. It was sad, we felt feelings, and we also felt that maybe Scott would begin to address his issues in an attempt to fix his relationship. But then on Saturday, Kourtney shared this photo. And things aren't looking up anymore.

It's a pretty simple photo: Kourtney's with a couple of friends, looking all hot in a swimsuit and cutoffs, and she added the simple caption "boating." On the surface, it looks like it could be just a little update on her life, maybe a chance to show off how great she looks. But if you consider what's been going on in her life, you realize that this probably goes deeper, right? Like maybe Kourtney wanted to post a big ol' middle finger, but figured that this might be more classy.

Well done, Kourtney. You win this round, all the previous rounds, and we're going to go ahead and wager that you'll win all future rounds as well. I mean, with game like this, how could she not?

Christina Applegate once ditched Brad Pitt at the 1989 MTV Movie Awards ... going as his date, but leaving with another dude ... and though she never officially revealed who it was -- not even to Andy Cohen on "WWHL" -- we're going to go out on a limb here and say that we think it was Skid Row musician Sebastian Bach (not to be confused with Johann Sebastian Bach, who'd be way, way too old for her) ... considering the two were rumored to have been linked around that time for a long while now. 

Sebastian Bach was also in attendance at the 1989 MTV Movie Awards, and honestly, who better to leave Brad Pitt for than the musician on the rise who was that year's opener for Motley Crue? It was 1989, for crying out loud ... "Legends of the Fall" sadly wouldn't be a reality for another 5 years. 

GET THEM OPPORTUNITIES, GIRL.

It's too bad we're not comparing brain cells here, because between the two of them, Kim Kardashian and Sofia Vergara have about 3 to spare. Forget DEM BOOBZ AND DAT DOZE AZZEZ, that's a compelling competition.

As it is, however, Sofia Vergara is all concerned about being pitted against ol' Kim for "most beautiful" something or another for some magazine. About it, she says, "Sometimes I look in the mirror and think I look like a drag queen. I'm a woman, but I'm very exaggerated with my boobs, my ass, how I do my makeup, and my accent, of course."  

Sofia, bringing Kim K into the fold, continues, "I'm going up for sexiest ass against Kim Kardashian and she's, like, 10 years younger than me. She should be upset she's up against me. I think I beat her once or twice." Not for nothing, she continues all that ass-kissing (?) by saying, "I've met her at red carpet things and she is just the most beautiful woman anywhere ... so somebody is crazy to put me on these lists.  

So hey. We'll be judicious about all this: it's either the most uninformed statement of all time, or the best burn we've heard in eons. We'd go ahead and commit to one answer or the other, but frankly, we're talking about Sofia Vergara and Kim Kardashian, for crying out loud. Does it really matter?

Praise the Lord and pass the ... never mind: we won't be seeing any terrible photos of the late Kurt Cobain's body after being discovered with a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head ... thanks to a Seattle judge who threw a lawsuit launched by a gore-mongering kook who claims the government helped cover up the "murder" of Kurt Cobain. 

According to the Seattle Times, Richard Lee's request to have the gruesome photos released under the Public Records Act was denied, but on a technicality -- the court claims that Lee never went through the appropriate channels to file the suit, and this is why it was dismissed.

Isn't it a shame that the judicial system has to jump through such hoops to placate people who apparently have a secondary agenda?

Though Richard says that he will file another records request -- and "properly" this time -- it seems unlikely that the case will gain any traction ... nobody needs to see what Kurt Cobain looked like while laying on the floor after being dead for 3 days. Lee's motivation is to "prove" his theory that Cobain never had a shotgun wound ... and that it was actually the government (?) that was instrumental in covering up a conspiracy surrounding the nature of the Nirvana musician's death.  

We're not gonna lie: the circumstances around Cobain's untimely death are strange. They're unsettling and suspicious in certain ways, and they're grudgingly deserving of analysis by those unfortunately obsessed by unwrapping Kurt's final days, but as we said the last time around -- there's no reason to scar people for the rest of their lives just so some sicko can feign "legal" satisfaction. 

Gross.

Warning: the oncoming post contains absolutely no tangible point whatsoever, other than simply celebrating this woman's beauty and grace. If you're looking for some kind of epiphany contained herein -- aside from the very obvious "Caitlyn Jenner is beautiful," which just can't be an epiphany if you have eyes -- sorry ... this one is simply about celebrating someone's beauty and courage. 

The above screenshot comes from "I Am Cait's" most recent episode, and if you haven't been watching, it's OK ... Caitlyn is just a fabulous on camera as she was at the ESPYs, and leading up to the premiere of the series. 

Caitlyn Jenner's doing big things -- as promised -- and she's looking better and better ... and more and more comfortable ... as she does them. 

What a proud time to be alive in the world, y'all.

Hey, remember when Eminem was fat?

Nah, we don't really, either, because he always had that adorable, oddly cherubic face that contrasted so sharply with his invasive lyrics. Nope, we didn't think Em was overweight, we just thought he was going through puberty or the like, but something far more sinister was actually at work behind the scenes: Mathers had eaten so many of his own purple pills -- namely Vicodin and Valium, and unfortunately not the actual purple pill, Nexum -- that he'd worn a hole in his stomach ... and instead of treating the problem, he catered to the symptoms and stuffed that hole full of food. 

In a recent interview with Men's Health, Eminem opens up about his prior drug use -- which was no secret -- but also his battle with weight. 

About the addiction, he says, "In 2007, I overdosed on pills, and I went into the hospital. I was close to 230 pounds. I'm not sure how I got so big, but I have ideas. The coating on the Vicodin and the Valium I'd been taking for years leaves a hole in your stomach, so to avoid a stomachache, I was constantly eating — and eating badly." 

He continued saying that he, like his penchant for pills, had gone overboard with the running after he'd sobered up and lost the weight ... which seems to be par for the course for some when they've got an addict's brain.

Eminem says, "I think I got a little carried away. I became a f--king hamster. Seventeen miles a day on a treadmill. ... I started getting OCD about the calories, making sure I burned 2,000 every day. In the end I got down to about 149 pounds. I ran to the point where I started to get injured. All the constant pounding from the running began to tear up my hip flexors." 

He concluded his MH piece, saying that he eventually learned balance in his workouts, trading knee-busting running for ... well, not as much knee-busting running combined with workouts like P90X, Body Beast, and weight training every single day, day in and day out, and while we're thrilled that he's likely not going to end up dead in a gutter, all overdosed on pharmaceuticals, we're still kind of concerned about the permeating mania he seems to exude over everything in his life. 

The drugs might not get you, friend, and it's nothing short of inspiring how you kicked it and remained true to yourself, but watch out for that stress and high blood pressure ... it's a killer for sure.
