September 21: What Are We Wearing Today?

What Are We Wearing?
Happy “America’s Next Top Model” Day! It’s Wednesday, which means we’re going to pose like fake models for our “What Are We Wearing” photos. Unforch, I am stuck at home tending to a kitchen plumbing issue and Jessica out sick today with the flu (feel better, Jess!). But the other ladies had their smizes ready, so let’s find out what they’re wearing today…

Let’s Talk About This Leaked Miley Cyrus Lingerie Photo

So, this photo of 18-year-old Miley Cyrus loungin’ and textin’ in nothing but her skivvies and a pair of red pumps suddenly appeared on the internet today and peeps be freakin’. Yeah, you can see her covered crotch, but I personally don’t think it’s really all that scandalous — some of her “costumes” are racier. I do, however, have many questions. Who took this pic? (Liam?) Who is Miley texting? (Billy Ray?) Who leaked the photo? (Miley?) Why does this bedroom look like an old timey whore’s suite above a saloon? Seriously, look at that wallpaper and the drapes and those godforsaken bronze satin sheets. I can smell the dust and whiskey from here. [Crushable] Keep reading »

Pearl Jam Celebrates 20 Years

There are a lot of bands I love and a wealth of genres of music on my iPod, but there is one band that will go down in history as my favorite — Pearl Jam. I discovered the band at 12 and it changed my relationship to music forever — two decades, 10 live shows later, and many discarded flannel shirts later, I am still just as moved by their music as I was back then; I’m just better at containing my hysterical shrieks. This week, the band celebrates their 20th anniversary with the release of “Pearl Jam 20,” a documentary film directed by Cameron Crowe which tells the real story of how the band came to be and how they’ve survived this long. (A week-long run in select theaters starting on Friday and the movie will air on TV in October.) In addition to the film, the band has released a double-disc soundtrack filled with rare demos and live performances, as well as a book documenting their 20 years together. If you are a fan, you need both, trust me. Right now, I am singing along to the demo version of “Nothing As It Seems,” while looking at old photos of Jeff Ament and wondering whether he kept all his ugly hats. As Eddie sings in a tune he recently penned for the occasion, I’m so glad they’ve made it “to when it all got good.”

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Friends Borrow Her Vibrators

“By the time I finished the movie I’d been sent maybe 15 vibrators by different people in London with vibrator stores. It was a pleasant surprise. So I have this incredible collection, and I actually use like one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they’ll take them for six months at a time.”

— Maggie Gyllenhaal, who is starring in the movie “Hysteria,” about the invention of the vibrator, is very generous. But I find it a bit strange that her friends borrow her vibrators and then presumably give them back. Like checking books out at the library. Huh. [Contact Music] Keep reading »

Bullied Teen, Who Once Made An “It Gets Better” Video, Commits Suicide


Heartbreaking news: a teen who once made a video for the “It Gets Better” Project committed suicide yesterday after dealing with ongoing harassment because of his sexual orientation. Jamey Rodemeyer, 14, of Buffalo, NY, had been questioning his sexuality for some time and recently blogged: “I always say how bullied I am, but no one listens. What do I have to do so people will listen to me?” Apparently, Jamey’s family was aware of the harassment he faced from classmates and were working with Williamsville North High School officials as best they could to help him; his mom said he had “issues” for years and that he was seeing a social worker and therapist.
