If there’s anything I’ve learned from trolling Pinterest, flipping through the J. Crew catalogs that stuff my mailbox every week and ogling stylish women on the streets of New York City, it’s that I apparently have no idea how to dress myself. I mean, I learned how to dress myself as a kid – step right leg into pants, step left leg into pants, pull up, button, etc. – but apparently, outside of the basics, I’m doing it all wrong. The way I roll my sleeves is shameful, my belt cinching knowledge is rudimentary at best, and my jean cuffing technique is straight up basic. (No wonder I don’t have a boyfriend!!!) Thank goodness the internet is full of handy tutorials for these rampant styling problems, so that simpletons like myself can get it right.
So, what do we think of Beyonce’s new hair. besides the fact that it’s obviously a wig and no doubt will be gone tomorrow? I am digging the ’50s style of the baby bangs, but I’m distracted by how it looks like her hair is hovering around her head rather than coming out of it. See what I mean? Anyway, speaking of baby bangs, baby Blue Ivy was photographed clutching the gold version of my exact same Eiffel Tower keychain (mine is silver-colored, Blue’s is probably solid gold). Blue Ivy and I (and every other tourist in Paris) have so much in common, aren’t you jealous? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
I really kinda dig Taylor Swift. Her music is fun and sometimes, sadly, reflects my much-older dating woes, she’s smart and sassy, and she definitely has a sense of humor about her own fame. Case in point: when she wore this “No Its Becky” shirt out and about in NYC recently, a reference to an amazing Tumblr post that went viral, in which a photo of Taylor is identified as some random chick named Becky, who used to be happy and popular until she snorted marijuana at a party. And what do ya know, this moment in random pop culture memery is the perfect inspiration for any Swifty in need of a Halloween costume. Just don’t forget to bring Olivia Benson! Read on for details!

TMZ is reporting that Ke$ha is suing her longtime producer Dr. Luke for sexual assault and battery, which she says began at age 18, when he signed her to his label Kemosabe Records, an offshoot of Sony. The singer says that Luke, born Lukasz Gottwald, 41, made her use drugs and sexually assaulted her for years, including one incident in which he gave her “sober pills” and she woke up the next morning in his bed, sore and with no recollection of what happened the night before. The suit also alleges that Luke was verbally abusive to the now 27-year-old, insulting her physical appearance and contributing to her developing an eating disorder. Dr. Luke is largely considered one of the more influential music producers working today. Keep reading »
