They will call a magazine anything nowadays. How about Wagon or Ass or Debbie Lipshitz? Here’s Kate Beckinsale’s layout from Mean magazine. Is that the actual theme? Because she sounds it. In the accompanying interview, Kate states that she doesn’t understand “how more people don’t drop children out of windows.”
That’s the hottest statement of the year. The sad thing is, she’s probably spot on. When I’m in a restaurant and a kid starts wailing, I have to resist the urge to grab the fire extinguisher and start swinging. Oh, wait. I think her and I talking about two different things.
Kate also says that “babies show up as themselves. I really do believe you can f–k a person up terribly by being a bad parent, but they arrive kind of 80 percent baked, and that 20 percent is crucial, but they do show up with personality.” Which basically translates as Mommy’s going shopping in a ridiculous terrorist outfit because she’s feeling whimsical and needs freedom, so just don’t drink any window cleaner while she’s gone, you tiny adult!
