Back, Back, Forth And Forth On Tila

January 22nd, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

Reading through New York Magazine‘s follow-up feature with Tila Tequila discussing her late fiancee Casey Johnson, Internet backlash, and pursuits for the future, I started to think that Tequila might be a little more sound in the mind than we often give her credit for.

All chicks are crazy, but...

Su Her–for Defamasian of Cut Roll Character

June 2nd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

When in the business of blogging (“business,” by the way), one often finds themself face-to-face with a photograph that simultaneously compels and stumps them.

Case in point, Katy Perry’s sushi outfit from Japan’s MTV Video Awards:

Don’t even try to tell me that sushit is fresh

…which is obviously abhorrent. But the question is, why? Is it simply the off-putting element of Perry’s racial drag: her geisha girl kimono, heavy-slanted eyeliner, noir-colored mop? Could it be that I’m simply confused, like Jen, about why the fuck this chick is famous besides kissing a girl (also: who hasn’t?) and magically cloning the impish-smug-pinup facade of quirktress with the mostess, Zooey Deschanel? Do I immediately loathe those rocketing up the career ladder in their young twenties, because it reminds me that I’m now suffering through my criminally miserable late twenties, and soon will be too old to be an Influential Asian American Under 30?


But I think it might just be the sweet shrimp at the crotch.

Smells like…

That just ain’t right. It ain’t.

Thanks, Jasmine!

Rejection and Humiliasian

May 16th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Not everyone shares my love for Vince Vaughn, which is good whether or not he’s puffy ‘n’ old or young ‘n’ Brando-ish, smoking hot or smoking too many ciggie-butts, drinking too many scotches or… being a Republican or… whatever. Doesn’t matter. I love the dude.

Vaughn isn’t known for being all that particular in the female department–all signs seem to point to success if you’ve got a round rump and a couple of Patron shots at your disposal. So I have to admit, I was surprised as everybody else when I read yesterday’s “news” of Vaughn turning down a threesome offer recently at local LA bar.

(I know. I can’t believe people actually put this total ca into print either. But without it, there would be no DISGRASIAN.)

I’m actually quite shocked that any girl would take such a blatant and shameful rejection and make it public, but I suppose minute fame these days is far more important than shame. I can’t say that I would ever relive a romantic dismissal again, certainly out loud, to a friend or a tabloid. I may have too much pride. But that’s just me.

I know everyone’s asking the same question: “VINCE VAUGHN turned down a 3-way? He wouldn’t turn away a 3-eyed cow with a skirt on! Why would he do such a thing? WHY? Is he growing up? Did the girls remind him of Jon Favreau? WHY? WHY? HOW?”

I asked these questions to myself all morning, and then decided: any man that turns down free romps is doing so for a reason. And my theory… is that the girls were actually PETA bikini protestors. Nobody likes a pale, vegan orgy.

Many of the world’s citizens are horrified at the achingly slow trickle of emergency aid being halted on its way to the hundreds of thousands of people left devastated in post-Cyclone Myanmar–a situation complicated by political roadblocks and lack of movement by local government. As helpless as many of us feel, it seems everybody is jumping at the chance to do something to help. The First Lady even felt compelled to speak out this week, criticizing the Burmese government for not properly warning the citizens of the oncoming disaster.*

Other public figures have stepped up to the plate to speak out and try to improve this dire situation, including influential and educated people like actors and reality TV stars.

For example: Kim Kardashian–noted academe and do-gooder–posted an informative piece on her blog yesterday:

The post originally included the PSA Kim and her two sisters (the big one and the midget) filmed pre-Cyclone for’s “Burma: It can’t Wait” campaign. She took the video down at 3pm today, saying that the piece was not yet cleared for distribution. Fortunately, somebody smarter than the Kardashians knew to pull the clip for YouTube:

All I can say is: WOW!

Now this is why it is so very important for celebutards to do their part when the world is in crisis!!

Thank Heaven for the Kardashians, despite their inability to pronounce words off of cue cards, despite their inability to seem any more engaged with existence than corpses on Lithium, despite their ability to really comprehend the vastness of Burma’s “political plight,” despite their rotund asses and pea brains! Thank Heaven for them!

*we do not have an official quote, but we have heard her paraphrased** as saying, “My husband Georgie told me just the other day: ‘Them there’s people aren’t black or nothin’, so we should care about their well bein’! We should tell ‘em when a storm’s a-comin’!'”
