Look Again! It’s A Hilarious Commercial For Old Spice! Now Back At Me!

Last night, while watching “Lost” (ZOMGbestepisodeever!!!), I caught this commercial for Old Spice and just about died. It’s over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek sexism and it’s hyssssterically pulled off. “I’m on a horse!” I seriously could watch this ad over and over and over and not get tired of it. “It’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love! Look again! The tickets are now diamonds!” Bwaaaaahahahahaha!!! OK. I’m done. For now. Keep reading »

Quotable: Jessica Simpson On The Only Thing Standing Between Her And Oscar

“I will never do nudity. I don’t care how dark and intellectual the role could be, you know. I don’t care if I frickin’ could get an Oscar for it, I’m not going to do it. Those accolades mean nothing to me. I don’t think people deserve to see what’s under my clothing. That’s only for my next husband — ha ha ha.”

10 Olympians Who’ve Gotten Naked To “Support Their Sport”

olympians lindseyvonn jpg
Every time the Olympics roll around, some of the toned, horny athletes get nakey for one publication or another. This year, People talked to snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis and alpine skier Lindsey Vonn about taking it off. Jacobellis says, “I get way too many little girls who are crazy about snowboarding coming up to me, asking for autographs and advice, and I want to stay a strong role model for them.” Meanwhile, Vonn was one of the four Olympians who posed for this month’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue (above) and said, “I talked about it with my husband, and I looked at what other athletes had done in the past, I’m trying as best as I can to promote our sport and make it mainstream.” I don’t blame hot-bodied athletes for taking it off—I’d be naked all the time if I looked like some of them—but saying you’re getting naked to make alpine skiing more mainstream is some major BS.

Then again, the original Olympians performed naked, so what’s the big deal now? Plus, Vonn is in pretty good company with a long line of Olympians who’ve shed at least most of their clothes for photo shoots. Here’s a sampling.

The Inspiration For “My Sharona” Pays Tribute To Doug Fieger

Doug Fieger, lead singer of The Knack, passed away on Valentine’s Day, after battling brain and lung cancer for several years. His ex-girlfriend Sharona Alperin, who inspired the #1 hit 1979 song “My Sharona” came to his memorial. She told Entertainment Weekly, “About 70 percent of the people I meet, as soon as I introduce myself as Sharona, they say ‘My Sharona.’ Another 20 percent, you can tell, they’re thinking it in their heads. It’s so funny. I spent the entire weekend with him, with his body [at the services]. It was beautiful to see the people who paid him respect on his death bed—the people who he was the biggest fan of. He was so devoted to rock and roll—a walking encyclopedia … I’m grateful that he’s out of pain.” RIP, Doug. I hope he could tell that his Sharona was there to pay him tribute on a day devoted to love. [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »

Is Mena Suvari Determined To Be The Wackiest Celebrity At Fashion Week?

This weekend there was an article in The New York Times about the celebs who get coveted front row seats during Fashion Week, and how, each season, there’s a short list of seriously desired celebs to have at your show, while the remaining front row seats are divvied out “on a downward slope.” Which is why I suppose it makes sense that Mena Suvari attended oh-so-many shows over the last week. Not to be a total beyotch (and believe me, I was just as annoyed seeing former cast members of “The City” sitting front row, while I was in the nosebleeds), but when was the last time Suvari, um, did something memorable? Speaking of memorable, the actress seemed to be determined to leave an impression, showing up to shows with some of the wackiest hair and fugliest shoes I’ve ever seen. Keep reading »

Would Ali Consider Being The Next “Bachelorette”?

On last night’s episode of “The Bachelor,” Ali Fedotowsky, who tearfully left the show last week because she was going to get fired from her job at Facebook if she didn’t go back to work, called to tell Jake Pavelka she made a mistake. However, in the 10 seconds (OK, few weeks, probably) that has passed since she bid him adieu, Jake had “fallen in love” with the three remaining women and didn’t think it was a “good idea” to let Ali come back for a second shot. Ali shed even more tears as she declared that leaving was the biggest mistake she’d ever made, and, I believe, her “performance” likely earned her the title of the next “Bachelorette.” While nothing is confirmed, Ali paid a visit to “The Ellen Show” and hinted she might be interested.

New (Fake) Law Would Ban Marriages Between People Who Don’t Love Each Other

You know what has never made sense to me? That gay people who love each other can’t get married, but two straight people who detest each other can. I mean, if anything should be banned, it’s marriage between two dolts who can’t stand each other, right? This news spoof from The Onion hilariously imagines how people would react if such a law were proposed. Keep reading »

Marc Jacobs Inspired By Kate Moss — But No Celebs! — For Fall 2010

marc jacobs backstage g1 jpg
Last night, before dashing back to my apartment to liveblog “The Bachelor,” I went backstage at one of the hottest shows of every fashion week — Marc Jacobs. The designer keeps his shows closely guarded and editors, photographers, and bloggers were banned from entering the area where the clothes were, so that any details about his designs wouldn’t hit the interwebs before the actual show. However, the sounds of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” being played during rehearsal and the details gathered from the makeup and nail teams indicated that Jacobs’ latest show would be more sexy and subdued than seasons past.

[FYI, I was crushing on that photographer wearing the hat in the background the whole time I was waiting.]

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The American Boys Of The Winter Olympics

The Winter Olympics are upon us and though I don’t care enough to actually watch the events, I care just enough to imagine the contenders naked. But it’s sometimes hard to see what’s going on under the layers—the goggles, the winter hats, and the frilly spandex figure skating outfits. This is why I’ve developed an ultra-scientific method combining snap judgments and aesthetics to decide who should be shunned, shagged, or married. And this one’s a doozy. Keep reading »
