What’s that you hear? Yeah, that’s the sound of my uterus giving the PS22 kids a standing ovation for their rendition of Jay-Z’s “Run This Town.” The little lead vocalist is astounding, the rap segment (which the chorus wrote) is awesome, and I just love watching all the sassy little girls in the crowd gettin’ DOWN as they belt out Rihanna’s refrain. To find out more about this amazing school chorus (which has recorded with the band Passion Pit!), check out their blog. Keep reading »
Well, sort of. Pamela Anderson strutted down the runway for the A*Muse fashion show hiding her famous face behind Ronald’s scary likeness. [Miami Beach, FL, 10/14/09]
UPDATE: A co-worker said these photos reminded him of an old Japanese McDonald’s ad for the Tomato McGrand. Check it out, after the jump… Keep reading »
If there’s one thing in this world I have to thank Meghan McCain for, it’s “Paranormal Activity.”
I went to see this horror movie last night, after the Daily Beast blogette wrote on her Twitter
“Ohhh my GOD!!!!!! One of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen!!! My adrenalin is still pumping and I think I left nail marks in Ramins arm!!! What the f**k paranormal experience?!? Get ur asses to the theatre to see paranormal activity – haven’t seen a movie that good in a very long time!”
When Meghan McCain tells me to do something, I listen.

Despite expressing dismay that the previous ad — featuring an extremely whittled-down Filippa Hamilton — had made it to print and that it didn’t represent their “image,” it’s not the only example of Ralph Lauren execs being a bit overzealous with Photoshop. Check out this ad from a Ralph Lauren window display in Sydney. Mmm, doesn’t she look hungry and chic? [Photoshop Disasters] Keep reading »
Rihanna joined Twitter this week, just to let fans know that, “The Wait Is Ova.” She followed this up with a second tweet that read, “Nov 23 09,” which is presumably the release date of her newest album since Good Girl Gone Bad came out in 2007. She’s already shot the album cover in a nude bodysuit and white faux fur coat, so we’re wondering if she’s going back to “good” now that she’s ditched the neo goth look? In more Rihanna-related news, Chris Brown‘s please-forgive-me-Rihanna song, “So Cold,” was leaked onto the internet this week and I hate to say it, but it’s a decent song if you can ignore the fact that Chris Brown is a jackass.

Oh look! Just what I didn’t know I needed to wear to tomorrow night’s Ryan Gosling concert (he plays with some band, like I care!). He’ll totally notice me now! [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
It’s Wednesday again, and if you were lucky enough to get Columbus Day off, you probably didn’t even notice that the week is half over. Thankfully, we’re here to remind you that the best ‘bloids hit the newsstands today. Heaven forbid you actually pay for them, so we scooped them up in the wee hours of the morning, read them cover to glossy cover and picked out the most amazing, totally true (yeah, right) tidbits for you.

Here’s a skeevy trend for you. In Hong Kong, teenage girls are going on “compensated dates” after school. Basically, they go out with older men in exchange for money, but they don’t see this as prostitution, because in their minds they’re in control of whether or not sex is involved … even though sex is usually involved. These girls are using the money to buy fancy-schmancy designer goods, which are increasingly a big deal in Asia. Total side note: When I studied in Tokyo, my Japanese friend told me that she wanted the brands that Americans like Britney Spears wore. When I tried to explain that teenage girls can’t often afford the same things as celebrities, she looked legitimately confused.
