There’s nary a baby bump to be found in Beyonce’s epic “Countdown” video, but as we can see in this behind-the-scenes video, B was six months pregnant at the time of filming. I love the way she says, “Oh, baby!” over and over. So adorable. Is it weird that I’m so excited she and Jay-Z are spawning? Do I need to get a life? Maybe.
Professionally speaking, I’ve always been a bit on the fence about Katherine Heigl. As a rom-com fan, I am literally incapable of not watching “27 Dresses” when it comes on TV. I liked “Knocked Up,” though I certainly took issue with its abortion avoidance. And “Life As We Know It”? That sappy movie about two hot single people who hate each other who suddenly become guardians to their baby goddaughter and then fall in love? Cried. But “The Ugly Truth,” an abhorrent movie for which Hollywood owes the world a huge apology, and Heigl’s seemingly smug attitude in real life, have made me sort of meh on her as a whole. But thanks to this video from Funny Or Die, I am now a Heigl fan. Now, I happen to like balls – i.e. testicles — but Heigl’s adamant distaste for “crotch plums” made me laugh anyway. [Funny Or Die]
“The last time I cut my hair short, my boyfriend at the time was like, ‘You look so much better with short hair.’ So I cut it off. I know, I know, so stupid! My girlfriend thinks he just didn’t want any guys to look at me. … I attract a difference kind of boy when my hair’s red. I get more quality men—like a more thoughtful, nerdy dude.”
– Kirsten Dunst, who I absolutely loved in the Lars Von Trier film “Melancholia,” tells the January issue of Lucky how boys have influenced and reacted to her changing hair over the years. Hmm, I’ve had my hair a variety of colors but haven’t personally noticed a difference in the guys I’ve attracted. Though I do think I’ve had more luck attracting them period since my hair has been a more natural brown. My blonde period wasn’t very eventual, romance wise. What about you? Have you noticed a difference in the types of guys you attract depending on your hair color or cut? (And click on to see all the great photos of Kirsten in Lucky!) [Lucky Mag]
Cyber Monday. All of the awesome Black Friday deals, without the risk of being trampled, mugged, or pepper-sprayed by your fellow shoppers. Look, as much as I sort of hate these “buy buy buy buy!” pseudo-holidays, the fact remains that Christmas and Hanukkah are just around the corner and there is gifts to purchase, so you might as well save some money doing it. With that in mind, I’ll be updating this list of Cyber Monday deals and links all day, as I find them. I’m looking to add smaller, independent retailers to this list so if you know of a great Etsy shop or another online indie retailer that has a cool deal today, email email@example.com with “Cyber Monday” in the subject line!
