9 Teens Charged After Classmate Commits Suicide

Nine Massachusetts teens were charged today with statutory rape, violation of civil rights, criminal harassment and disturbing a school assembly in conjunction with a bullying incident. Back in January, 15-year-old Phoebe Prince was jumped by a group of male and female students in the school library and hallways. Phoebe was verbally harassed, physically abused, and even raped as she was making her way home from school. Why? The group was angry that she had briefly dated one of the guys and they wanted to teach her a lesson. Shortly after, Phoebe took her own life. What a lesson. Keep reading »

10 Famous Villainesses For Angelina Jolie To Look Up To

villainess g1 jpg
No matter how many children she adopts or humanitarian causes she takes up, the scent of evil bitch clings to Angelina Jolie like a cheap perfume. I don’t care what anyone says, that woman scares the crap out of me. That’s why she’s the perfect actress to play Maleficent, the villainess from Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” who curses princess Aurora. The rumor around Tinsel Town is that Tim Burton is going to be working his dark magic on a version of “Sleeping Beauty” told from the point of view of Maleficent. I can’t think of a better role for Angie to play. And fresh off of an IMAX, 3-D viewing of “Alice In Wonderland,” I can’t wait for another Burton masterpiece. After the jump, 10 other villainesses that Angelina can draw inspiration from. On second thought … she might not need any. [Celebitchy]

Why You Need To Know About “The Diary Of A Teenage Girl”


Combine three of my passions — graphic novels, theater, and teenagers — and you’ve pretty much got my artistic dream come true. Last night, I saw the play The Diary of a Teenage Girl, adapted by Marielle Heller from a graphic novel with the same title by Phoebe Gloeckner. The book uses diary entries, letters, poems, songs, and drawings to tell the very serious story of Minnie, a 15-year-old girl living in San Francisco in the 1970s, who has an affair with her mother’s boyfriend. Even though Gloeckner won’t confirm how much of the story is based in reality (it reads 100 percent autobiographical), she claims that the book, which took her seven years to complete, “almost killed her.” When writer and actress Marielle Heller read the book, The Diary of a Teenage Girl three years ago, she knew it would have an impact onstage.

Meet Auntie Vie, Pamela Anderson’s “DWTS” Inspiration

Pamela Anderson is one of our fave contestants on this season of “Dancing With the Stars.” Why? Of course the world’s most downloaded woman brings an unprecedented trashiness to the stage that makes us giddy, but what really tugs at our heartstrings is her inspiration for competing. Unlike the other contestants, she’s not doing this dancing thingy to get in shape, jump-start a dead career, or make her trashy new fiancé (ahem, Vienna) proud; she’s doing it for her eccentric Aunt. Yup. Keep reading »

14 Couples We’d Like To See Procreate

procreate beyonce and jay jpg
We are all really excited at the possibility that the King and Queen of the Universe may have a little prince or princess on the way to carry on their empire. I feel like I’m part of Greek mythology or something. No doubt that baby Hova will do the House of Dereon proud. This kid is bound to be wealthy … and not just because he or she inherits beaucoup bucks from Mommy B and Daddy J … because it’s genetic. I wonder how baby Carter will make his/her first million? Now that Beyonce and Jay-Z might have a bun in the oven, here are some other couples that we think should get busy gettin’ busy. After the jump, some more couples that we’d like to see procreate.

A Brief, Yet Slightly Disturbing, History Of The Condom

In case you were curious about the evolution of the condom—you know that rubber thingy that people hate to use but have to—here is an illustrated look at its history, by Corinne Marshall and Jordan Monsell. Next time a dude complains about wearing one, just remind him that you could try it the old-fashioned way and have him put his ween in a tortoise’s a** or a pig intestine. He’ll have that thing on in a jiffy. I’m almost picturing the caption for 2020: “Banana Ointment.” [Mad Atoms] Keep reading »

Mamma Mia! An ABBA Reunion?

Are you ready to break out your one-piece, polyester bell-bottom jumpsuit and your dancing queen platforms? There is a chance that the Nordic, disco-tastic foursome, ABBA, may be reuniting. I know, I know—I never really considered it possible to see them live again since they’ve gone on record saying that they would never get back together. They even turned down a $1 billion tour so that their fans could remember them as the young, hot, exuberant Swedes they once were and not the old folks they are now. But with the success of “Mamma Mia!” and a recent induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, they may take a chance on reuniting. Keep reading »

On To Bigger And Better Things? 10 Celebs Who Left Hit TV Shows

I know you are really, really upset—but can you stop crying for a second so we can talk about the fact that Katherine Heigl is finally leaving “Grey’s Anatomy”? Long overdue, as far as I’m concerned. She has been annoying me since day one. How bad can the job really be? Hmmm, let’s see. You get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to show up on set for 12 episodes—then you get half the year off. Yeah, I think I’d quit too.

Her publicist claims she’s out of there because she wants to spend more time with her newly adopted daughter, and that becoming a mother has “changed [her] desire to work full-time.” That’s sounds like sunshine and moonbeams and all, but the truth is that she’s been petitioning to get Dr. Izzie Stevens written off for the last three years. Since her BFF T.R. Knight left, I suspect. At least we can have some fun imagining how they might get rid of her. Drug overdose? Amnesia? Doctors Without Borders? Sex tape? Fun! Anyways, considering her last few movies were ludicrous rom-coms and she has a rep for biting the hand that feeds her, I’m thinking she may not be too popular in Hollywood after this. [E! Online]

After the jump, some other celebs who have left cushy TV jobs for bigger and better things. Let’s see how they fared.

In Case You Need More Reasons To Be Skeptical About Online Dating

OK, folks. Not to be a wet rag, but here’s further proof that online dating can be kind of sketchy even though it’s supposedly a perfectly acceptable way to meet a mate. Check out some of the cold, hard stats about that hot stranger you think you’re sending winky faces to. Hint: they may be lying about stuff. Also, can it be true that “1 of 3 women who meet men online have sex on the first encounter”? That’s just crazy. All the more reason to get excited about non-lame online dating sites like HowAboutWe.com. Just sayin’. [BuzzFeed]

Frisky Q & A: Singer/Songwriter Sally Seltmann Chats About Her New Album

The moment Sally Seltmann started to sing at the Presbyterian Church during SXSW, my ears instantly perked up. Maybe it was the sound of her angelic voice in a dimly lit church or her jaunty, delicate melodies that got me. After hearing her perform songs from her soon-to-be-released album, Heart That’s Beating (due out on April 9), I couldn’t wait to meet her. I sat down with the Aussie—who used to perform under the name New Buffalo and who wrote Feist’s mega-hit “1, 2, 3, 4″—over some French toast at The Old Pecan Street Café. And she was just as lovely and ethereal in person as she sounded in church. Keep reading »
