Old And Fat Are In During Recessions

Get ready to eat, drink, and age naturally because two new studies show that old and fat are in vogue during times of economic hardship. Well, not exactly “old” but “mature” and not exactly fat but “taller and heavier.” The two studies, one using American movie actresses from 1932 to 1995, the other surveying Playboy Playmates from 1960 to 2000, found that beauty icons tend to be slightly taller, heavier, and more mature-looking with larger waists and less babyish facial features when money is tight. Why? Biologically baby-faced features are associated with neediness and small waists and big hips with fertility, while women with smaller eyes, larger chins and bigger bodies tend to be more independent and stronger emotionally. The theory is that when times get tough, it might be better to shack up with a woman who is a survivor rather than someone who looks hungry. Keep reading »

The Many Grooms Of Elizabeth Taylor

You’d think that after eight marriages to seven men, Dame Elizabeth Taylor would shun the institution altogether. But perhaps not. Us Weekly says that the 78-year-old actress and icon plans to tie the knot again. So who would the lucky groom number nine be? None other than long-time friend/boyfriend, 49-year-old Jason Winters. Elizabeth denies she’s engaged, but can you blame anyone for believing it’s true? After the jump, behold the many grooms of Liz Taylor. No doubt you’ll need to know this someday for trivia.

New Career Suggestions For 8 Sex Scandalitos

new career eliot spitzer jpg
In a recent interview, Eliot Spitzer hinted at the fact that he plans on running for office again. “I’ve never said I would never consider running for office again,” he claimed. So what position might he have his sights set on? New York State Comptroller because, he says, “It’s a great underutilized position in government right now.” Translation: the only job he could have a shot in hell at after all that hooker bizzness. If we could offer our unsolicited advice to Eliot, we would tell him to explore his options. His time in politics is clearly over. I think he’d be better as the new face (and head) of the Hair Club for Men. Imagine Spitzer sitting at a large desk with a full head of hair, beaming at the camera and saying, “Because I’m not just the former governor, I’m also a client.” [Gawker]

Beware! Harry Potter Will Lure Kids Into The Dark Arts


There are always some crazy Christian fundamentalists out there trying to find corruption in, oh, everything. In case you were thinking the Harry Potter series was light, mindless entertainment for young people, think again. Apparently, the consumption of Harry Potter subtly encourages children to adopt a Wiccan lifestyle. I mean, just think of all the hidden dangers within those pages: flowing robes, magic spells, owls, Latin words, lightning bolts and (gasp!) possession. Dark arts, dark arts—I tell you! OK, let’s laugh now. This is hilarious. [Everything Is Terrible] Keep reading »

Taylor Kitsch Just Sunk My Battleship

If you are a devoted fan of “Friday Night Lights” like I am, you probably have a Pavlovian response—either drooling or sweating—when you hear the name Taylor Kitsch, aka Tim Riggins. I’m sorry, but it just shouldn’t be legal for a dude to be that hot. Couple his inherent hotness with the fact that he plays a bad boy football player with a heart of gold and you’ve got the makings of a category five libidinal hurricane. All this time I’ve been thinking I was kind of pervy for thinking a high school boy was so hot. But as it turns out, he is 29! That’s 11 years more than legal. Even though I’m sad that he’s graduating from “FNL” (this is his last season), we haven’t seen the last of his six-pack. He has a few films in the works, but there’s one that sounds like a hit. Word is that Taylor just landed a role as a “wildly spirited” Naval commander in the film adaption of our favorite childhood board game, Battleship. His character, Alex Hopper, will battle the open seas and save the world when aliens invade earth. I hope by “wildly spirited” they mean wet and naked. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Andrew W.K. Was A Teenage Stalker


Singer Andrew W.K. wasn’t always the rock star who got all the chicks. (Wait, is he that now?) Back when he was 17, he was obsessed with a girl who would barely talk to him. He even wrote a song for her, “My Destiny,” which is uber-stalkery. And now, he’s letting us all hear it—take a listen above. “She consumed me with both lust and hatred,” he told The Guardian. “Lust, because I was truly drawn to her beauty and soft skin, and hatred because she rarely spoke to me, wouldn’t look at me much and never gave me a chance to show her my deep affections. I used to call her house just to listen to her say, ‘Hello?’ Then I’d hang up, terrified and shaking with nervous ecstasy.” Whoa, I’m having flashbacks of a dude I dated in high school who told me he would overdose on acid and kill himself if I didn’t go on another date with him. But that’s a story for another time.

Back to Andrew W.K. His stalker swan song is chock-full of amazingly creepy lyrics like, “Called up your number fourteen times to see if you were home, home is where I’ll find you when I find you.” Is it wrong that I think it’s kind of goth-tastic? Keep reading »

The 10 Free Podcasts You Need To Be Listening To

Ever since I got rid of my TV—yes, I really did—I’ve gotten passionate about podcasts. In case you have never ventured into the podcast world, they are basically weekly radio shows you subscribe to that are streamed directly into your iTunes. I find them endlessly fascinating and so much more stimulating than (most) television shows. Plus, they’re more low-maintenance. I can listen while doing other things—like cleaning my apartment or surfing the web. The best part is that most of them are free. After the jump, 10 podcasts that you need to start listening to right away. Keep reading »

Apparently There’s A Class System For Strippers

Nicole Hughes, a former stripper for the Penthouse Executive Club, is suing for “mental anguish, emotional distress, humiliation and loss of reputation” and an undisclosed amount of money after being portrayed on a billboard as a Scores stripper. “I just felt so betrayed. How could they do all that and not tell me?” Hughes says. She claims that she signed a contract saying that she would receive $4 per photo and they would only be used in association with the Penthouse name. Her first mistake was selling her pics for $4—a really bad business decision, but I digress. The club’s management said that they were legally able to do whatever they wanted with the pics. Even though she was allegedly never paid her $4, what upset her most was that she didn’t want to be seen as that kind of stripper. She feels Penthouse has a much more reputable image than Scores. Really? Does this strike anyone else as kind of funny? A stripper is a stripper is a stripper, right? Apparently not. Keep reading »

An Ode To “Kids Incorporated”

I found this clip of Stacy Ferguson (aka Fergie) when she was on “Kids Incorporated,” the show that was only like the most major inspiration of my childhood. I know you remember it, too. The plot was a little bit sketchy—a bunch of kids were in a rock band together and somehow were forced to face important issues each week like violence or drugs. All of this was interspersed with cheesy performances. But it didn’t matter that it made no sense—it was totally genius. Now I’m kind of laughing my ass off at this hee-haw version of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” but at the time that it came out, it provided me weeks of entertainment in front of the mirror with my hairbrush. It was even the first CD I ever purchased. When I was 12, my childhood dream came true when I actually got to audition for “Kids Incorporated.” Naturally I chose to sing “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” I didn’t get the part … that vajazzling b**ch Jennifer Love Hewitt nabbed the role, but I eventually got over it and remained a loyal fan. After the jump a few more of my favorite clips from “Kids Incorporated.” Oh, the memories. [BuzzFeed]
