The Lost Girls Are My New Heroes


Jennifer Baggett, Holly Corbet, and Amanda Pressner—aka “The Lost Girls”—were just typical 20-something New York City gals. Until four years ago, they made a life-changing decision to leave their media jobs, apartments, and boyfriends behind to embark on a 60,000 mile, year-long sojourn around the world. Their goal? To venture off the beaten path and make due without the usual creature comforts. In fact, they stuck to a strict budget of $30 a day. “The state of being lost,” Jennifer says, “means that you’re ready to make some kind of change, to do some deeper examination of who you really are as a person and who you’d like to become.” Holly adds, “Travel is one deliberate, rewarding way to get that process started.” Keep reading »

10 Pickup Lines For President Obama

Luann Haley, a single mother and bill collector, is seriously regretting opening her mouth last night. Haley tried to hit on President Obama in Buffalo, saying, “You’re a hottie with a smokin’ little body.” Oh my. That’s really, really embarrassing. Luann claims she was “just trying to be funny.” We hope she learned her lesson. Don’t hit on Obama unless you have a great pickup line in your pocket. [Washington Post]

After the jump, ten pickup lines that may have fared better with our Commander-in-Chief. Keep reading »

The Teachers At Bloomingdale High Ain’t Gonna Take It

I think Bloomingdale High School in Florida may want to consider renaming itself Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. The teachers there found the best ever way to vent about their students, by lip synching to Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” Genius! How many times did I want to break out that tune when I was a teacher? Oh so many. All that’s missing is the big hair and the crazy outfits. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Maybe I Should Try Celibacy

I’m seriously inspired by this article I saw in the New York Post, “No More Sex In The City,” about how celibacy has become “a thing.” It opens with the story of 29-year-old Brooklyn musician Katie Jean Arnold:

After hooking up with a stranger on the L train platform and going back to his place, she woke up at his apartment and decided to leave. On her way out the door, he came up to her, naked, and said the words she’ll never forget: ‘What’s your name?’ It was then that she made her Big Decision. No. More. Sex. Katie plans to keep her chastity belt on from now on … well at least until she achieves her dream of landing a record deal. “Not having sex is like giving up junk food … sex in New York for me had become like the 99-cent package of Ding Dongs on the corner.”

I’m embarrassed to admit that I can totally relate. Oh man, do I love Ding Dongs. Keep reading »

“American Idol” Contestants Stand To Make Big Bucks

Don’t spend a second of your time feeling sorry for those eliminated “American Idol” contestants. Sure, every one of them has some kind of sob story. “I’m singing for my sick grandma.” “My new baby.” “My dead friend.” But don’t let the human interest stories fool you! Yes, they sing for dear ol’ granny and the love of music, but according to an “American Idol” contract someone got their hands on, they also sing to the tune of mega bucks. All of the top 12 contestants are poised to receive a big-time pay day. [PopEater]

Heck, if I were making this much, Simon could call me an untalented bitch and I’d still smile and wave. I hope you’re sitting down. After the jump, the breakdown of “American Idol” payouts. Keep reading »

11 Notorious Celebrity Sex Addicts

It’s almost hard to believe that proud groomzilla Russell Brand was once a raging sex addict. Before his engagement to Katy Perry, Russell compared himself to a “charging locomotive.” In a recent interview, he admitted to having a special entourage to help him pick sex objects du jour. “My selection process was outsourced,” he revealed. “I had a team of experts who took care of finding women for me. They had very specific instructions. It was as if I was talking to a wine steward—’I'm looking for something French, a bit fruity, smells of oak.’” Keep those sex sommeliers away from my cork! Luckily, sex rehab helped him slow his roll, but it was no easy ride. “The majority of people in sex rehab are just disgusting men … pleasuring themselves in dark corners,” said Brand. Not a cute image. [The Sun]

Jamie Foxx: The “American Idol” Dream Mentor


I always forget what a big crush I have on Jamie Foxx. I was all smitten again last night when he came back as an “American Idol” mentor for Movie Week. Yes, he’s mega-hot and multi-talented, but what makes him a great mentor is how much he cares about the success of the contestants. The guy genuinely gives a crap that they connect to the song, the audience, and their artistry. He even got them all shirts that said “Contestant” and “Artist” and challenged them to earn the “Artist” shirt with their performance. Awww. In his mentor session with Casey James, he urged James to look into his eyes and seduce him while singing “Mrs. Robinson.” (Clearly chosen for Kara DioGuardi’s benefit.) Now that’s going the distance! Unfortunately, the best thing about last night’s show was foxy Foxx—the performances were kind of meh with the exception of Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox’s duet of “Falling Slowly” from the movie “Once.” I predict those two will be battling it out for the top spot this season. As far as I’m concerned, Jamie Foxx has already won the top mentor spot. Keep reading »
