Yoga Poses That Are Easy To Memorize

I have been an on/off yoga practitioner for a number of years yet I’ve never been able to remember the majority of the traditional names for the poses, er, asanas. No matter. From now, I’m using this handy chart when referencing my favorite yoga poses in conversation. For example: “You know, I love to do Foot Penis because it really opens up my hip flexors. But seriously, when I want to stretch out my calves, there’s nothing better than a little Prepare Your Anus.” Namaste! [Pleated Jeans] Keep reading »

Marie Claire Devotes Six Paragraphs To Discussing Kate Hudson And Ginnifer Goodwin’s Weight

Of all the lady mags, I tend to find the stories in Marie Claire to be the most informative, well-written, and thought-provoking. Celebrity interviews, of course, are a bit of a crapshoot; for every Lady Gaga (who will give amazing, ridiculous quote after amazing, ridiculous quote) there’s a Katie Holmes (who repeats canned answers that were clearly rehearsed over and over with a publicist in advance). Then there are all the celebrities who give interviews somewhere in the middle, sometimes interesting, sometimes not so much, often due to the types of questions posed by the interviewer. (Ask a celeb a boring question, you’ll probably get a boring answer.) For that reason, i wasn’t expecting much when I sat down to read the Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin cover story in the June issue of Marie Claire.

But I certainly didn’t expect six paragraphs devoted to discussing the stars’ weight. Keep reading »

Britney Spears And Rihanna Pillow Fight At The Billboard Music Awards


Remember when Britney Spears used to perform at award shows as, like, a rule, because she was a huge pop star? Nowadays it seems like she’s trotted out of her holding pen to make random, half-assed appearances during other stars’ award show performances as some sort of “comeback” statement. So, that makes her random, half-assed, minute-long cameo during Rihanna‘s “S&M” performance at last night’s Billboard Music Awards her, what, 8th comeback? I love Britney, don’t get me wrong — I will love her until I’m old and grey and cranky and think even classical music sounds like racket. But seriously, I wish Britney was let off her leash and given the opportunity to stand and perform on her own, not just as a backup dancer in Rihanna’s sort of sad “good girl gone bad” fantasies.

Phew. Rant over. Last night’s big Billboard Music Award winners, after the jump… Keep reading »

Justin Timberlake Does What He Does (Second) Best On “Saturday Night Live”


When “SNL” was done cracking jokes about prison rape, this weekend’s season finale was the highest rated in seven years, thanks, mostly, to the star power of host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga. Listen, I want Justin to give up his acting aspirations and record a new album as much as anyone, but maybe he could get his acting fix by becoming a semi-regular cast member on “SNL”? He’s so good at it! Above, the hi-larious digital short featuring Justin and Andy Samberg’s “Dick in a Box” crooners singing about “3-Way (The Golden Rule),” in which a threesome with two guys “is not gay” so long as there’s a chick (a chola-licious Lady Gaga) in the middle. After the jump, two of my other favorite moments… Keep reading »

Justin Bieber Fans Will Soon All Smell The Same

“Let’s be real, the way a girl smells is very important to a guy! I have such a deep connection with my fans, so creating a fragrance that I personally love is another way I can bring them closer to my world.”

Justin Bieber explains why he created Someday, a fragrance for women, er, girls. If the music at a Justin Bieber concert doesn’t give you a headache, the smell of every single attendee wearing Someday sure will! [ONTD] Keep reading »

Gwen Stefani Kills It At Cannes

Oh God, I am so embarrassed. You’ve caught me drooling. I’ve been starring at this picture of Gwen Stefani at the amfAR gala at Cannes and didn’t even realize I was salivating. She looks so chic — and it’s her own design. Yep, this black halter-neck, mermaid-train gown, with gold belt detail, is from her L.A.M.B. line. Someone needs to be dressing actresses for the Oscars next year! Dang, remember when she used to wear nothing but cut-off white tank tops?

This wasn’t even the first show-stopping number Gwen wore this week in France — after the jump, two more dazzling looks. Keep reading »
