Britney Spears, There’s An App For That

Because celebrities haven’t taken over every millimeter of your existence quite yet, some intrepid folks of note are coming to an iPhone near you. That’s right, having your favorite celeb at your fingertips 24/7 is the wave of the future. Last week, Britney Spears joined the trend, launching her very own iPhone app, “It’s Britney!” For the modest cost of $1.99, you can easily get messages, news, photos, and Twitter updates from Brit. There is even a sparkler feature, so when you go to her next show you can hold up your phone instead of a lighter. The best feature though, in my opinion, is the Shake Shake Shake option, which makes your phone yell, “It’s Britney, bitch!” every time you shake your phone. All in all, this sounds like … a big waste of two dollars. [MTV]

Girl Talk: How Jordan Catalano Ruined My Love Life

“Love is when you look into someone’s eyes and suddenly you go all the way inside, to their soul, and you both know instantly. I always imagined I’d fall in love nursing a blind soldier who was wounded in battle. Or maybe while rescuing someone in the middle of a blizzard, seconds before the avalanche hits.”

Angela Chase of “My So Called Life” said lots of words to live by, if you were an awkward, 15-year-old sophomore in high school in 1994. Which I was. And I was especially fond of her deep musings about love or, more specifically, her musings about Jordan Catalano. If Angela could go for Jordan Catalano, then so could I, I thought. Well not him exactly—but an alternative him. Sure, it seemed a tad unrealistic considering that no remotely hot guys went to my high school. And even if they did, they would never look twice at me, the bookish, alternative, theater girl. But still, I believed. Keep reading »

Decode My Dream: My Girlfriend Is On Trial For Murder!

On the night of my 10th anniversary of dating my girlfriend (yes, we are still not married) I had a dream that she killed a man on our weekend getaway. He touched her butt and she got angry and then stabbed him with scissors and pushed him in the river. I was questioned about the murder (I saw it from afar) and at first I started to lie, but then came clean and told the police everything.  She was carted off to jail, I gave her $1000 for attorney’s fees and then we were broken up.  I cried and then I was like, “Well I guess it is time to start new.” It got fuzzy after that but I think another witness came forward and testified that it was self-defense and she was going to get off. I’m not sure what happened next. Weird right? – Dating A Murderer

Women Hate Their Bodies About As Much As Men Love Sex

I think we all know that women’s obsession with body image is a cultural epidemic. I feel like it’s common practice to hear not only myself, but also my friends, saying derogatory things about their bodies—too fat, big butt, hate my nose, my skin, hair. Sadly, I don’t know a woman who isn’t guilty of this heinous offense. In case we wanted to remain in denial about what a problem this is, a new study is giving us a reality check about exactly how often we are not just saying, but thinking, these awful things about ourselves. Thirty-six times a day! That’s 1.5 times an hour and 252 times a week that women are thinking negative thoughts about their appearance. Keep reading »

Football Losses Linked To Uptick In Domestic Violence

We know that dudes, and many ladies, take their football really seriously. And, of course, losing sucks. But did you know it could also be dangerous? A new study shows that episodes of domestic violence are linked to local NFL losses. Yikes. Researchers looked at domestic violence reports from 1995 to 2006 and found that on nights when home teams lost, there was an 8 percent increase in incidents of domestic violence. That statistic nearly doubled when rival teams were playing one another. Obviously, researchers believe that football is not to blame for the incident, but may act as a trigger to anger. The data corresponds with that theory, as most of the violent episodes tended to take place about three hours after the end of a game. I also have to wonder what role alcohol plays in this picture. Either way … these results are awful. Just to be clear, a man should be able to accept his favorite team losing without harming anyone. [Newser] Keep reading »

‘Tweens Behaving Badly


Even if ‘tweens totally terrify you, you must show them some love for what they consistently do well—they bring the mother-effing ruckus. No matter what year, no matter what conditions, no matter what cute boy is involved, ‘tweens are kind of like cockroaches. Nothing on earth can keep them from causing a hysterical scene over the objects of their young affections. This past Friday, 3,000 ‘tweens rioted at a mall in New Jersey on Long Island. Arrests were made and a few were sent to the hospital after lots o’ screaming girls went apes**t—pushing and shoving just a bit too much, possessed with unbridled passion. Who were they getting all hot and bothered about? Teen singing sensation Justin Bieber. Is it bad that I don’t know who he is? Poor Justin had to turn around and leave after security deemed it unsafe for him to enter the building. Check out this video filmed by a ‘tween on the scene. Wait, is that Justin Bieber in the background, butchering “Love Fool,” originally by The Cardigans? Oh my … ‘tweenagers sure are interesting mini-people. After the jump, some more tweentastic moments. Keep reading »

Evangelical Dieting Is Sweeping The Nation

If you think colon cleanses, air diets, and cookie diets are bizarro fads, you haven’t heard anything yet. There’s a new dieting trend based on … well … Jesus. That’s right. If you want to be thin, you should pray your way there on a faith diet. While there have been faith diets around since the ’80s, there seems to be a sudden increase in converts. The idea is to take the principles of Christianity and apply them to eating. Keep reading »

How Jason Segal Met Me


Jason Segal doesn’t know it yet, but he is my intended. We once had a run-in at a New Year’s Eve party, but when he said, “Hello,” I got all tripped up and spilled champagne on myself. Fail. But I keep hope in my heart, and love to watch his movies and pine. Luckily, it looks like my moment has finally come. Last night at a Los Angeles show with band The Swell Season—made up of Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard from the movie “Once”—Jason got up and performed a little ditty he wrote. When he asked for songwriting advice (I think he is trying to break out of the Dracula puppet genre, even though I find it charming), Marketa told him, “Write a song from the heart and include as much personal information as possible.” And that he did, my friends. In a move that I can only call “a miraculous turn of events for me,” he included his digits!!! If you’ll excuse me now, I have a very important phone call to make. I really hope it’s not a fake number. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

The Curse Of The Lifetime Movie?

I’ve developed a theory. Maybe I am just overly paranoid, but there seems to be some kind of curse associated with starring in a Lifetime movie. The pattern is: be in a Lifetime movie and then things go down the tubes. Take, for example, former “American Idol” Fantasia Barrino. I knew that her Lifetime flick “The Fantasia Barrino Story,” in which she starred as … um … herself, would be a stinker, but are you aware of what’s become of her life since then? She’s broke, her $1.3 million mansion is allegedly in foreclosure, she’s dating a married man who works at T-Mobile, and she’s supposedly starring in an unscripted VH-1 reality show with Rudy from “The Cosby Show.” This is very, very bad, people. I’m starting to think this Lifetime curse is legit. [Celebitchy]

You Want What? 10 Outrageous Celebrity Requests

Outrageous Celebrity Requests

If you’re a celebrity, it’s not unusual to request a long list of luxurious items to make you feel right at home in your dressing room. No request is too big or too small (or too ridiculous) to be accommodated. That, and death may come upon the head of the person who says no. Here’s what Britney Spears is allegedly requesting for her new gig as an “X Factor” judge: 12 Snickers bars, six cases of Diet Coke, which must be replenished every week, 10 bags of Doritos a day, 12 vases of magnolia blossoms in her dressing room, 10 pieces of chicken and four pints of potato salad every week. Wait, what about the Cheetos? She needs Cheetos! Sounds like Brit will be having a down-home BBQ back there every night. Click through to see some more outrageous celebrity demands that you won’t believe. Who do these people think they are? [WOW]
