She’s baaack! Tila Tequila
has left the building and re-emerged as a pop star named Miss Tila. She just released her first EP, Welcome to the Darkside.
And all this time, I thought she just wanted to find love. I had no idea she had her sights set on super-stardom of any kind. Everything she does just seems so genuine. Anyhow, I just finished listening to her first three singles, “Blue Dress,” “Get Me Off,” and “Walking on Thin Ice.” Let’s just say that Miss Tila seems to have discovered a new music genre that I’m going to dub “rip-off-electro-pop-porno-stalker.” Her voice is not that offensive, but the music is just about as all over the map as Tila is. These songs sound like the soundtrack to my weirdest nightmares. And the lyrics? They scare me. “I spread my legs wide open for you baby, so be a man and pump it inside me.” These poetic verses from “Get Me Off” would make Madonna in her “Truth or Dare” days blush. Sadly, I do not see pop super-stardom in Miss Tila’s future. Excuse me. I need to go take a shower now. Listen at your own risk. [AOL

We’ve spent the last year trying to figure out if Joaquin Phoenix has really lost his marbles. Was the star really taking an acting hiatus to be a rapper? Was he really a superhero, or just on some heavy psycho-tropics? I was relieved when I found out that his shenanigans were all a part of a documentary project spearheaded by Casey Affleck. But a recent private screening of the film, “I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix,” only made us more confused. Isn’t this thing too shockingly vulgar and debaucherous to be real?

A new survey reports that women over 35 are popping out more babies than ever before. For the first time, the number of babies being born to women over 35 surpassed the number being born to teens. Go mature mothers! In 2008, one in seven births were to older moms while one in ten were to teens. The survey also found that the more mature mothers were better educated and less likely to be married. Hmmm … I wonder if there is a correlation between those two stats? So why are the older ladies reproducing more? Most likely because of scientific progression in the fertility field. Also, woman are getting married later in life and changing their attitudes about motherhood. Either that or the teens have been watching enough “16 And Pregnant” to scare them senseless. So does this mean that we women are getting smarter about making babies? Maybe not. The one thing that half of all the mothers surveyed had in common was the way they became mothers … it “just happened.” [Newser] Keep reading »

In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re interviewing our moms to find out how their lives changed when we were born and what they learned about love and life as a parent. Today, Ami’s mom.
When I heard we were doing Mother’s Day interviews, I couldn’t wait to interview my mom, Mona. She’s pregnant with me in the picture above. And yup. That’s me as a kid. Cue chorus of oohs and ahhs. It’s a shame you can’t hear Mona answer these questions in her thick Long Island accent, because it’s oh-so charming … especially when she calls me on the phone. On speaker phone, that is. She’s obsessed with it ever since she learned how to use it and refuses to speak on the phone any other way. “Oh, Aim! You’re on speakah phone” is how she begins most phone calls. It’s also too bad that you haven’t had the great pleasure of dining with her. She orders everything “on the side,” à la “When Harry Met Sally,” and sends back three out of every four meals. Sorry, Mom, it’s true! I can almost hear the phone call I’m going to get in five minutes: “Oh, Aim! You’re on speakah phone. Why did you say that?” But seriously, Mona is one of the most colorful characters you’ll ever meet. To know her is to love her. And everyone who meets her loves her. It’s impossible not to. Aside from being a wonderful mother to my younger brother, Adam, and me, she’s also been a surrogate mother to many of her students for more than 30 years. Find out Mona’s thoughts on motherhood, after the jump. Keep reading »
Even though Mohammed’s cameo on “South Park” didn’t go over so well, Comedy Central is prepared to show that it doesn’t discriminate when it comes to offending religious groups. Next on their list? Christians. Mr. Jesus Christ himself is going to be starring in his own series called “JC,” from the producers of “The Office” and “American Dad.” It will show a misanthropic, video game-obsessed Christ trying to escape the shadow of his “powerful but apathetic” father and find his way in New York City. Not the resurrection Christians had in mind, I suspect—I’m guessing that some of JC’s devout disciples may not take kindly to seeing their savior playing “Grand Theft Auto” and eating take-out. But it sounds like a comedic gold mine to me. The execs at Comedy Central say the show is still in the early phases of development, so they are not yet concerned about the reaction to it. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were public stoning and/or crucifixion in store for them. No one said comedy martyrdom was easy. So what do you think about “JC”? Hilarious or blasphemous?

A good man is as hard to find as a unicorn these days. But this uniboy, who looks like he was magically teleported from the ’80s, is oh-so-real. There’s nothing quite like a man with a rainbow hornhawk, hooves, and pink high tops to make an ordinary night unforgettable. Apparently, unicorn role-play is becoming more mainstream and less mythical. As far as I understand, it’s a subcategory of the Furry Fandom world. In case you don’t know what that is (I only know because Dan Savage taught me)—it’s people who are into humans with animal attributes. Think boytaurs. You learn something new every day. [Erooups]
