Quickies: Dior’s John Galliano Caught On Tape Saying “I Love Hitler” & A Pregnancy Pact?

A video has been released of suspended Dior designer John Galliano slurring at patrons in a Parisian café with an anti-Semitic rant. Galliano can be heard saying “I love Hitler” and “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed.” He also calls them “ugly.” (It’s unclear if…

R.I. P. Suze Rotolo

I’m walkin’ down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I’m bound, I can’t tell
But goodbye’s too good a word, gal
So I’ll just say fare thee well

Bob Dylan and Suze Rotolo on the cover of the former’s Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan represent the archetype of young, bohemian love. The two of them walking…

Does The Internet Need A Geek Culture Site For Women?

The Mary Sue, a new geek culture blog, just launched a hot second ago, and in one of the very first posts, a staff blogger explains to readers why a geek site “for women” is really necessary. It was an explanation I needed, frankly, because at first blush, I saw an Oscars roundup and a

What’s The Most Inappropriate Time You’ve Dropped The F-Bomb?

Watching Melissa Leo drop the f-bomb during her Oscar acceptance speech made me feel a little bit better about my own f-bomb mishap. Sometimes it just happens at the most inappropriate moments. For me, it was back in my days as a high school teacher. It was 8th grade visitors night and parents and potential…

Frisky Q&A: “Bachelor Pad”‘s David Good On Manhood, Natalie Getz, And Who Brad Womack Should Choose

We watched as season five “Bachelorette” contestant, David Good, got a second chance at love on “Bachelor Pad.” After all the pie-eating, backstabbing, and unitard-wearing was said and done, David walked away the big winner with $125,000 in his pocket and Natalie Getz on his arm. Not too shabby! Since then, David has been busy…

Gross Talk: Do You Pop Your Tonsil Stones?

Yesterday morning, I woke up with a rather painful sore throat. I headed straight for the mirror and open my mouth as wide as I could, peering down my throat in search of swollen glands or major redness. Instead, I saw white bumps on what I assumed to be my tonsils. I headed straight for…

Lady Gaga Debuts Truly Bizarre And Epic Video For “Born This Way”

So. Lady Gaga‘s music video for “Born This Way” is out. It is the rather epic — over seven minutes! — story of a government-owned space territory called G.O.A.T. (no idea what that stands for but I’m sure I could take some acid and figure it out), where, like, a super harmonious group of…

Store Sneakily Advertises On The Backs Of Women’s Legs

I’m not sure what to think of this advertising scheme by Superette, a store in Australia and New Zealand. They put these stamps on park benches and mall seats, with the idea that women in short skirts and shorts would sit and have the ad imprinted on the back of their thighs. Part of me…

Stripping, Spanking, Girls Kissing: It’s A New Wii Game

Sex and video games are two of God’s greatest inventions, so it’s only natural they’d come together. As you can see in this NSFW commercial, WeDare is a silly-looking game in which friends/random geeks strip, spank and kiss at the direction of the Wii. You know, like Truth Or Dare but way more expensive.

20 Morning-After Dealmakers And Dealbreakers

Guys, you may not know this, but the morning after is just about as important as the night before. Many an awesome evening has been ruined by a crappy morning. Spending the night with you and, specifically, how you behave in the morning, tells us a whole lot about what kind of man you are.

The PS22 Chorus Was Cute At The Oscars, But Could’ve Been Amazeballs

Last night’s Oscars ended with a performance by the kids of PS 22 chorus, who we here at The Frisky absolutely adore. What makes this chorus so unique is their unusual song choices. So I don’t know about the selection “Over the Rainbow,” which sounded kind of pre-recorded and was, well, meh. A…

This Year’s Best Oscar Presenters Were Senior Citizens

Last night’s Oscars was billed as “young and hip” thanks to James Franco and Anne Hathway, so it’s interesting that my two favorite presenters of the night were ages 65 and 94. We’ll start with the baby of those two—Helen Mirren. While so many of last night’s presenters were stilted and visibly nervous, Helen appeared…

Come And Get These Sperm Jeans!

One of my biggest fashion pet peeves are what Stacy London and Clinton Kelly of “What Not to Wear” call “fancy jeans.” That’s any pair of jeans that are bedazzled, painted, embellished, or appliqued in any way. I find “fancy jeans” offensive. But these “cum wad pants” take “fancy” to a whole new level. WHO

Natalie Portman Says Being Preggers Grounded Her During Awards Season

“Baby was definitely kicking a lot during the song portion of the show. Little dancer. … With my child, I think I will just thank them. It’s sort of been a protection. It feels like a protection against all the hoopla and the part that keeps you centered where your meaning is and what i…

Girl Talk: Maybe He’s Gay

In a classic episode of “Sex and the City,” Miranda has an epiphany: A guy may “just not be that into” her.

Miranda was thrilled with this revelation. She can now stop being anxiety-ridden over a man’s mixed messages. She can now shrug and say, “Well, he’s just not that into me,” and…

Yep, This Sums Up Last Night’s Oscars Pretty Perfectly

As this was the “young and hip!” Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her Anne Hathaway. [Who
