When we were in high school, our love lives were kind of pathetic, which is why when we were supposed to be paying attention in class, we were actually doodling and daydreaming about the day Jordan Catalano would wizen up and realize that Angela Chase could not only help him learn to read, but also rock his world. You know, on “My So-Called Life”? Harken back to those carefree days of obsessing about fictional romances by daydreaming and doodling with these Teenage Power Couple pencils. Our only qualm with this set — <i>Dawson</i> and Joey? Ugh. Any fan of the “Creek” knows Pacey was way hotter. But that’s another post…
Here’s what you need to know: some people out there think Beyonce’s pregnancy is a fake one and that she’s walking around with a prosthetic bump. Why? I haven’t been able to figure out what the motivation would be. Anyway, those Babyonce naysayers produced this screenshot as evidence. Beyonce appeared on “Sunday Night HD” and as she took a seat, her belly appeared to, well, kind of collapse and fold in half. I don’t know much about pregnancy, but I don’t think baby bumps do that. Personally, I think this whole theory is kind of hilarious and I like to think it’s somehow connected to the Illuminati because HOW FUN! You can see video and more screengrabs at the link. [Dlisted]
Occupy Wall Street got its biggest — if briefest — celeb occupier on Monday when Kanye West showed up at Liberty Square/Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan and pow-wowed with Russell Simmons. Simmons was there showing his support for the movement, and while Kanye has yet to say what he thought of his time among the eclectic community of occupiers, Simmons had this to say:
“It was amazing to see how people loved seeing Kanye West at Occupy Wall Street. His music and his art has always been about the voice and the power of the people. Kanye just wanted to come down and experience the growing movement that has opened the eyes of many around this country and around the world of the struggles of poor people. The energy at Liberty Plaza was electrifying and the momentum to get the money out of politics is growing quickly.”
If Kanye’s interest is genuine, awesome, but I hope reports that he wore a gold grill for the visit are untrue. A Givenchy shirt is one thing, but a gold grill is just so … how should I put this? … one percent. [Global Grind, Village Voice]
Here are 11 other celeb occupiers down at Liberty Square…
Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes, I like to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.
Wednesday nights are what I like to call “date night,” only I’m not going out to dinner and a movie with a handsome fella. No, “Date Night” is when I stay in, make dinner, and watch “America’s Next Top Model,” “Revenge,” and “American Horror Story,” aka the Boob Tube Trifecta. Last Wednesday night, I was feeling especially posh but not especially ravenous (I ate a late lunch), so I found myself going back to a recipe I used to make years ago when I was in a relationship: beef carpaccio.

I didn’t think anything could be better than the “F**k yeah, Ryan Gosling”/”Hey Girl” meme about my boo, but then “F**k Yeah, Feminist Ryan Gosling” came along and appealed to my Betty Friedan-loving, bell hooks-reading side. Check a couple more after the jump and the full site here. Keep reading »
