Here Is The Picture Of Robin Thicke Grabbing Lana Scolaro’s Ass

I heard rumors about how Robin Thicke allegedly grabbed some woman’s ass at the VMAs and I shrugged, as these things can tend to be sensationalized. Maybe his hand was grazing someone’s lower back?

Police Mistake Celebrity Impersonator Photoshoot For Armed Criminal Enterprise

Even though the Port of London Authority only requires artists to register if they plan to be filming, not merely taking photos, the organizers of a celebrity look-a-like photoshoot are saying that, in hindsight, they probably should have. Turns out people jump to conclusions when they see a bunch of black-clad people waving guns around…

The 25 Best Photos From The “TRL” Photobooth

If you spent any time near a television in the late-’90s and early 2000s, then you are familiar with TRL. If this is the case, you are also surely familiar with the TRL photobooth, the last pit stop Britney, or Christina, or Da Brat would make before grabbing the mic and standing next to Carso…

This Linguistic Map Of The U.S. Fails To Take Into Account The Full Range Of “You” Expressions

I’m totally fascinated by the way people talk. Accents, vocabulary and emphasis varies so much, depending on where in the country you live. I lived in the Midwest (land of “pop,” not “soda”) until I was 9, which is probably why my speaking accent is generally pretty flat and indistinct. But I also happened to…

My Side Part, My Self

For the past several months I’ve been more dissatisfied with the way I look than usual. Sorry to say, but I’ve never been particularly good at practicing radical self-love and acceptance, preferring instead to vacillate between mild self-criticism to severe self-loathing. Of late, that’s been of the physical nature — my body issues are well-documented,…

James Deen Debunks The Myth Of “Porn For Women”

“My theory on porn for women is it’s just porn. Why is there porn explicitly only for women? By saying there needs to be porn for women, you’re basically isolating women as a gender, and saying, ‘This is how women should think. This is how their sexuality should be.’ It’s counterproductive (from what I understand)…
