Johnny Depp: A Pirate With a Yacht that You Can Rent. Savvy?

With a foul/watery name, VAJOLIROJA is Johnny Depp’s yacht.

Apparently the name stems from a mixture of  the names of his two children, his long-time partner and himself.

However, from the looks of the interior, VAJOLIROJA is neither foul nor watery:

Of course the yacht is pirate-themed. Why not? And for roughly 100,000 USD you can rent it. Why not?

…And if you’re a yacht fanatic…or if your yacht is simply settling fitfully somewhere, check out this phenomenal book.

Our Favorite Sweetcheeked-Brazilian Is Back, Boys.

Back in the early 2000’s, walking by a Victoria’s Secret franchise, you would look up and see a buxom, larger-than-life sized woman with wide green eyes and tan Brazilian skin.

Later you’d recognize her as Adriana Lima; and who cared if her face was everywhere- she’s hot.

But have you noticed that she sort of disappeared in the past handful of years?

Well, apparently she had a baby. (That explains it!)

But according to– she’s back!

And today, she’s doing a live photo shoot in NYC with our favorite photographer Russell James.
