“True Blood” Recap: Godrick Saves The Day!

Last night’s episode of “True Blood” was mega exciting. In a nutshell: Bill was stuck in a hotel room with his maker Lorena and we were treated to another flashback, though this one was less bloody and sexual. I wonder if, as time goes on, we’ll get to see flashbacks of all the vamps in different time periods. Aren’t you just dying to see what Eric looked like in the ’70s? I know I am!

Could You Ever Get Past Hearing “I Don’t Love You Anymore?”

One of the big bombshells my ex dropped the day he decided he needed a break was, “I don’t know that we’re in love anymore.” I didn’t buy it. I was in love and I was certain he was too. He was confused, he needed space, and I was going to give it to him, despite the fact that for many, his words would have been the final nail in the coffin. So I was fascinated to read Laura Munson’s “Modern Love” column in Sunday’s New York Times about her refusal to fight with her husband when he declared he no longer loved her. Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Christina Hendricks On What Makes “Mad Men” So Sexy

“There’s something in what you don’t see. There’s restraint. I’ve had people say to me, ‘My husband and I watch it and we always have sex afterwards.’ I think it’s really hot that some of the things it’s stirring up in people are very naughty things.”

Music Video: Shakira’s A “She Wolf”

Check out the video for Shakira’s single “She Wolf.” In it, the Colombian singer does some weird yoga poses, dances really bizarrely, beyond her usual belly dancin maneuvers, moves her ass like I ain’t never seen an ass move before, climbs around in a cage, rocks an asymmetrical bodysuit, sports those long nails we told you were going to be a trend, and frollicks with a wolf. It’s odd and totally fierce at the same time. Her new album, Beware The She Wolf, is out soon — are you excited? Keep reading »

This Weekend I … Asked Joseph Gordon-Levitt Out On A Date!

This weekend I watched “60 Seconds with Joseph Gordon-Levitt” on Cinemax On Demand (watch it, after the jump) and learned something great — his Twitter handle. In fairness, a simple Google search would have given me the same info, but I like to think the TV was giving me a sign. A sign that I should ask him out on a date via the awesome power of Twitter. So I did. His reply is still pending. Stay tuned! Keep reading »

Cougars, Pumas, And TWITS: Which Ridiculous Female Stereotype Are You?!

If cougars are women over the age of 40 who “prey” upon younger men, and pumas are women just like them, but a tad younger, than what the heck is a TWIT? According to Australia’s Herald Sun, TWIT stands for Teenage Women In Their Thirties.

Just like men with Peter Pan-syndrome who are not ready to grow up, TWITs are putting serious relationships and parenthood on hold, instead choosing to continue partying and enjoying the freedoms they discovered in their teens.

So, in other words, TWITs are just like pumas, only they’re all about having fun and, like, partying over landing a younger man. Why, why, why so many nicknames for women and the lifestyle choices they make that are not so crazy different from men? [News.com.au] Keep reading »

Jay-Z Does The Beastie Boys Proud

I was already sad that I missed the All Points West music festival in NY this weekend, now I’m devastated. So, the Beastie Boys were supposed to headline, but dropped out at the last minute upon learning Adam Yauch (aka MCA) was battling cancer. Jay-Z stepped in for them, becoming the first rapper to headline a rock music festival and THEN he paid tribute to the trio by covering “No Sleep Til Brooklyn.” Effing awesome. Keep reading »

Amy Winehouse’s Dad Makes A Record. Other Fame-Hungry Celebrity Parents.

It makes sense to me when children follow in their parent’s footsteps, but not so much when it’s the other way around. Amy Winehouse‘s dad, Mitch (pictured at left), is a taxi driver. But he’s started recording an album of Frank Sinatra covers, along with a sprinkling of his own songs. A source at The Sun says, “Mitch has been working on [the album] for a while now. Amy always credits her dad with getting her into singing. He loves music. He has a good voice and wants a go at turning professional.” [Contact Music]

So he thinks fame is hereditary? Here’s a round-up of other parents who’ve grabbed at their kiddie’s coat strings, thinking that because they passed on such incredible genes, they should have a shot at fame, too. Keep reading »
