Evening Quickies: Sydney Spies Defends Her “Artistic” Yearbook Photo

  • Sydney Spies is defending I’m-Too-Sexy-For-My-Yearbook photo as “artistic,” damn it. The 18-year-old high school senior says her pic just expresses her interest — which is modeling — the same way other students pose with a football. She is only allowed to get her pic in the yearbook by paying $300 to publish it as an ad. Sydney and her mom Miki make the case for artistes the world over in this “Today” show clip. Even though I roll my eyes at this whole kerfluffle, I have to admit her yearbook peers are being totally slut-shame-y. [MSNBC]
  • Katy Perry’s parents want her to date Tim Tebow, a noted good Christian boy. Hmm. Between the whipped cream shooting out of her bra and the erotic lollipop-sucking, something tells me he’s not going to want to date her. [Popdust]
  • Ashton Kutcher is still wearing his wedding ring, which he “fiddled with” during an entire press junket while discussing “Two & A Half Men.” Quelle scandale! [Us Weekly]

  • “The Real Housewives of New York”‘s Jill Zarin is reportedly getting her own show on Fox called “The Beverly Jillbillies,” about moving from NYC to L.A. Because moving from one major metropolis to another major metropolis is just like being a hillbilly. [Hollywood Reporter]
  • Essie’s 2012 nail polishes are punchy, pretty and the names are all finance-themed.  [Fashionista]

  • More Katy Perry news: she’s designed a collection of false eyelashes. [Starpulse]
  • Eleven things that are germier than toilet seats. Ugh. Just reading this headline makes me want to Purell. [Mental Floss]
  • If you would like to watch Jack White on “American Pickers” purchasing an elephant head, then by golly you are in luck. [Evil Beet Gossip
