Hilary Duff Is Weirded Out By Aaron Carter’s Profession Of Undying Love

  • Remember back in March when Aaron Carter basically announced he was still in love with Hilary Duff even though they haven’t been together since, like, 2003? Yeah, it was kind of awkward (or romantic, I guess, if that’s your kind of thing). Well, Hilary still isn’t so sure how to feel about all that. She told BuzzFeed, “I keep seeing that, that he keeps doing that. I don’t know how I feel. I mean, that was so long ago, and obviously I’m still married, and I have a baby and we kind of just …” she trailed off, and at this point BuzzFeed helpfully suggested “…don’t know each other?” to which Hilary responded, “Yeah, don’t know each other … so … yeah.” Oh Hils, so diplomatic. Bless your heart. [BuzzFeed]

Phil Robertson Of “Duck Dynasty” Says STIs Are A “Penalty” From God For Homosexuality

Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” paid a visit to Family Research Council president Tony Perkins’ radio show yesterday to promote his new book — and to let us know he believes that STIs are God’s punishment for homosexuality and promiscuity. Seriously. I guess he was worried that we’d forgotten about his previous homophobic remarks and felt the need to stir the pot a little more. Robertson believes that political correctness and ”cultural bullies” have destroyed the country. He told Perkins:

“I’ve asked a lot of people, ‘Do you think its a coincidence that all of these debilitating, and — literally that can cause death — diseases follow that kind of conduct.’ God says, one woman, one man and everybody says ‘oh that’s old hat’ … But I’m thinking, well let’s see now. A clean guy — a disease-free guy and a disease-free woman — they marry and they keep their sex between the two of them. They’re not going to get chlamydia, and gonorrhea, and syphilis, and AIDS. It’s safe. Now to me, either it’s the wildest coincidence ever that horrible diseases follow immoral conduct or it’s God saying that there’s a penalty for that kind of conduct.”

Here’s The Real Reason Starbucks Spells Your Name Wrong

Starbucks
"This Isn't Over. It's Never Over."

Why, why must Starbucks insist on butchering the spelling of your name on every grande soy macchiato with an extra espresso shot that you order? Paul Gale knows the answer, and here he answers the greatest question of our time. Prepare to be enlightened. [Mashable]

Here’s Leighton Meester’s New Single

Leighton Meester (or as she’s forever known in my TV-loving heart, Blair Waldorf) is set to release a nine-track album on October 28. She debuted her new song “Heartstrings” yesterday and I’m totally intrigued. Instead of the bubbly, formulaic ditties that lots of actresses-turned-singers fall victim to, Meester’s song has a thoughtful, melancholy vibe to it that I can totally get behind. She’s ventured into music before with Cobra Starships’ “Good Girls Go Bad,” the movie “Country Strong,” and a kick-ass Fleetwood Mac cover, but this is her first album. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the tracks! [Cosmopolitan]

Nev Schulman Was Kicked Out Of College For Punching A Woman And Is Still Being A Creep About It

Nev Schulman Was Kicked Out Of College For Punching A Woman And Is Still Being A Creep About It

It’s recently come to light that Nev Schulman of the documentary-turned-reality show “Catfish” was expelled from Sarah Lawrence College for punching a female student in 2006. Schulman actually shares his side of the story in his new book, In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age, which was released exactly a week before he took to Twitter yesterday to speak out against domestic violence in the aftermath of Ray Rice’s dismissal from the NFL. (Coincidence? Some think not)

In In Real Life, Schulman describes a night at a dance called the Sleaze Ball (“a night of debauchery, drugs and girls dressed primarily in lingerie”) during which, by his account, he was provoked into hitting a female student. Schulman, who was a junior at the time, had been taking pictures of the event when he got into an altercation that’s fueled rumors for years. In the book, he recounts: Keep reading »

Happy Hump Day! Here’s A Micro Pig So Blissed Out By A Belly Rub That She Falls Over

This Pig Has It Made

Good morning! This micro pig is loving her feather duster belly rub so much that she reclines with glee and makes a sound that I can only assume is the piggy version of purring. The lesson I’m going to take from this is that micro pigs are pretty much equally adorable, equally cuddly versions of cats. [Laughing Squid]
