Viral Videos On YouTube Can Now Earn You Megabucks

It used to be that only Google’s YouTube users who “regularly produce videos that reach a wide audience” were able to make money from ad revenue sales on their videos. But now, Google is explanding its partnership program so those with one-hit wonders can cash in, too. If a video gets enough views, users automatically…

Who Are Men’s Fashion Magazines For Anyway?

While the U.S. version of Men’s Vogue folded a few months ago, it’s apparently still in international production. This photo of a male stripper/dominatrix/all-around stud serves as the cover boy for Japan’s version, but looks like it could just as easily be the cover of (also now defunct) Playgirl. It might make sense that Vogue

Supermodel’s Dog Gets A Modeling Contract. Yes, Her Dog.

You know that modeling contract you always wanted (before you got real, that is)? It just went to Elle Macpherson’s labradoodle. Yup, her dog. Bella, a five-year-old half lab/half poodle, is “Britain’s next top dog model” for the site Dogside.com, where he can be seen modeling products like scarves and coats. Bella Macpherson allegedly ear…

What Would You Put on Display At the Museum Of Broken Relationships?

At this point in my life, I have enough memorabilia from broken relationships to fill an entire museum. As a writer, I tend to heal after a breakup by writing about it—helps me understand what went wrong. But there aren’t always words to express how painful, sad, annoying, or existentially confusing a breakup can be.

“Real Woman” Does Not Look As Good In Topshop As Kate Moss Does

Sigh. I love The Daily Mail so much. You never know what those crazy British birds are gonna do next! Today it’s a “real woman” — cough, intrepid journalist, cough — Claire Coleman modeling clothes from the brand new Kate Moss for Topshop line. Her reasoning: “When I see Kate Moss in a dress, I’m…

Etsy Find Of The Week: Vampire Love Bite Necklace

There’s nothing sexy about sporting a hickey, but a little vampire love bite peeking out from beneath the flip of your long, tousled hair? Um, yes. If you want to give everyone the idea you scored a date with one of the hotties from “True Blood” — and that things went well — this vampire

“New Moon”‘s Voluri Revealed!

Don’t pee yourself, Twilight fans. Check out these just-released posters of Volturi vampires “Jane” (Dakota Fanning looking RAD), “Caius” (Jamie Campbell Bower), and “Alec” (Cameron Bright). This is not saying much, because “Twilight” (the movie) was cheesy as hell (not that I didn’t see it twice), but “New Moon” looks like it might just rule.

Trailer Park: “Taking Woodstock,” “The September Issue,” “My One And Only,” “Fifty Dead Men Walking”

Yes, summer is ending and it’s time to retire the flip-flops. Tragedy. Thankfully, there are several promising movies coming out this week, and they’re a great way to distract yourself from the fact that beach visits and hungover work days will quickly become a ghost of your past. Back to the grind, to the wool…

The PooTrap Embarrasses Dogs, But Makes Owner’s Life Easier

Some folks are too fashionable to clean up after their dogs, even if they use stylish Poupou Royal bags. So we’re sure the PooTrap will be on everyone’s shopping wish list.

Crave: CND’s Colour & Effects Nail Polish (Win It!)

We’re not math whizzes, but we do know that having seven nail polish bottles in our bathroom means we can paint our nails seven different colors.

Beauty Test Drive: Diorshow Iconic Mascara

Generally speaking, I’m happy with my mascara. Fiberwig and I have been through a lot together and it’s remained pretty true, never smudging and leaving me raccoon-eyed when I’m going for smoky-eyed. But every once in a while, you’ve just got to try something new. When I received a bag of Dior goodies to road-test…
