Oh, Fashion Week. How exciting you are. New York’s look at Spring 2009 started on Friday. After the jump are some of the designers whose newest wares struck our fancy, at least on the runway. We’ll be covering Fashion Week all next week as well, so stayed tuned for some other designers who made our stomachs turn. [Above: Rachel Comey] Keep reading »
Whether Sarah Palin is a politician you already support or don’t support, this video from Current’s Sarah Haskins (Sarah, I am still waiting for you to return that note I sent you, where I asked “Will you be my best friend? Check ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.) is hilarious. Will Palin help McCain seize the P.A.N.T.H.E.R. vote? Guess we’ll find out in November! Keep reading »
I grew up in San Diego, so I’ve spent years hearing people say to me, “Oh my GOD, San Diego is the most beautiful city in the United States” and being, like, “Huh? I guess.” Growing up in a place often makes it hard to appreciate it’s natural beauty so after moving away for college and then to New York for post-University work, I’ve finally realized how good I had it with the endless 70-degree days, incredible beaches, irreplaceable Mexican good, and can’t-beat-it access to Mexico and Central America. And now that I’ve learned my lesson, my mom decided to move east, so my excuse to go to SoCal and visit have dwindled. Here are the spots I think about when I’m California dreamin’, after the jump… Keep reading »
One of the things I like about tennis is how quiet the arena gets when someone good is playing, so that you can hear every somewhat sexual grunt. That’s what I would be paying attention to if I was attending the U.S. Open, going on right now and through this weekend. After the jump, some of the hotties playing this year — a few of whom are already out — and their best stats for those of you who care about, you know, sporting and competition and stuff.

This morning I got an email from a fellow Chris Brown fan. She said:
“I’ve just found my own personal Chris Brown porn, and I thought I’d share it with you. I’MMA HAVE A HEART ATTACK. Also, it’s likely I won’t emerge from my room ever again. It’s also likely that I will never date, never again in my life, because no one will be able to compare. For realsies, this vid is gonna ruin my life and I’d like to request that as an ‘I’m sorry for being so unbearably hot’ gesture, he make a sex video with Rihanna, for us to enjoy. Is that out of line? I’d LOVE that video. LOVE. There, I said it.”
The video that sent her into such a tizzy is above and I must concur. I’m almost embarrassed by how much I enjoy his air humping style.
Carrie Underwood apparently thinks that Jessica Simpson doing magazine interviews about her love life is desperate. A source said: “She laughed at the People cover, because it’s the same one Jess did about John Mayer — same smile, same look, except she’s a little fatter.” Team Underwood! [DListed]
The sudden pregnancy of Bristol Palin is a touchy issue that the media has their paws all over. When John McCain announced that Sarah Palin was his running mate late last week, a firestorm of Internet activity erupted as “skeletons” came crawling out of Palin’s closet. But the biggest bombshell — that 17-year-old Bristol is pregnant — has opened up a much larger debate about whether the families of political candidates are always off-limits.
I feel really bad for Bristol Palin. At 17-years-old she’s having to deal with a very adult situation — pregnancy, marriage, and the responsibility of being a first time parent. And she’s having to do it with very bright studio lights shining on her — some are critical of her and her parents, while others are cheering on her decision to keep her baby and marry the father sooner than she might have otherwise. I cannot imagine how she’s doing it and with such serenity. While I feel badly that Bristol has to deal with these new pressures while the media discusses her every move, I do think the media has every right to do so, but only to a point. I don’t think Sarah Palin’s parenting should be questioned and I don’t think Bristol’s pre-marital sexual behavior should be judged, by anyone. But I do think the contrast between Sarah Palin’s personal life and her political ideologies is wide open for discussion, no matter what side of the fence you sit on. Keep reading »
Oh dear. Some info from Lynne Spears’ tell all has been leaked to the press and rumor has it she reveals that Britney Spears was drinking by age 13, lost her virginity at 14, then started taking drugs at 15. This should really help mend their relationship, don’t you think? [The Sun U.K.]
Holly Montag (that’s Heidi’s sister) went out on the town with Lauren Conrad’s ex, Doug Reinhardt. Doug also briefly dated Spencer Pratt’s sister Stephanie. Why doesn’t The Hills‘ cast just have an orgy and get the fluid swapping over with? [Us Weekly]
Levi Johnston, who totally cleans up nicely, rocked a “Bristol” tattoo on his ring finger at the RNC last night. [Us Weekly]
