Kim Kardashian peeved about Cosmo cover; Ashley Judd apologizes for rap rant

kim-kardashian-cosmo.jpg Kim Kardashian was surprised to find herself on the cover of the Turkish edition of Cosmopolitan magazine this month. Apparently the photo was used without her permission. The Armenian-American took to her blog to mildly express her dismay, writing "Cosmopolitan Magazine has a number of international editions all around the world that run in various territories, and when I did this shoot for the international covers I had no idea that Turkey was planning to run my story on their cover THIS month, considering Genocide Remembrance Day is this month." Kardashian also appears on the cover of the Armenian version of the mag, and says she considers that "a huge honor." [ Kim Kardashian]

Ashley Judd is backing off some pretty harsh words she had for rap in her new memoir, "All That is Bitter and Sweet." The actress was called out by several, including The Roots' Questlove, last week when this quote surfaced: "As far as I'm concerned most rap and hip-hop music -- with its rape culture and insanely abusive lyrics and depictions of girls and women as 'ho's -- is the contemporary soundtrack of misogyny." Judd, who perhaps has an NWA album stuck on shuffle, apologized on the Russell Simmons-owned Web site Global Grind, writing, "I have looked closely at the feedback I have received about those two paragraphs, and absolutely see your points. And I fully capitulate to your rightness, and again humbly offer my heartfelt amends for not having been able to see the fault in my writing, and not having anticipated it would be painful for so many." Then she went on to make an ill-advised comment about bluegrass. Oy. [ The FABlife]

"Glee's" Dianna Agron is dating Chris Evans, star of "Captain America: The First Avenger." According to InTouch, the couple has been "casually dating" since meeting at a February pre-Oscar party. Also in February, Agron and "I Am Number Four" co-star Alex Pettyfer split, just weeks after shooting down engagement rumors. [ InTouch]
