Last week, burlesque star Dita Von Teese had me scratching my head at something she said in an interview with Into The Gloss. Dita, who is publishing an offbeat beauty guide soon, was giving tips on how to “sexify” getting ready so it turns on your man. She explained:

“In my book, I’ll have all kinds of things in it that you just don’t do around guys — like how I do my hair if a guy’s watching, how to make the process glamorous, so it doesn’t look crazy. I won’t go around with the hot rollers and all the clips in front of a guy that I’m dating, so, I know how to curl my hair with a curling iron, and use duckbill clips so it looks nice when I’m doing it. … But there are certain things to be discreet about during the seduction process. Men like to watch you get ready, but I kind of tailor things a little bit for when they’re watching.”

I wasn’t entirely sure I could take Dita Von Teese’s word for it. I’ve had boyfriends who have not been able to take their hands off me while I’m trying to get dressed in the morning or putting on makeup and I’ve also had boyfriends who could not have cared less. Some guys might be turned on by the voyeuristic element but I imagine most of them are just terrified at how scary eyelash curlers look. Anyway, I’m sure Dita has a full-on boudoir and anything she does is instantly sexed up by mood lighting and the smell of Agent Provocateur Petale Noir. She’s not exactly the status quo of beauty grooming here.

But I love Dita and I thought she might have a point. So I did what Frisky girls do in this scenario and turned to guys on my IM for the scoop: Keep reading »

Today In UGH: Adam Carolla Joins Fox News

Adam Carolla

The former “Man Show” host Adam Carolla has been all too happy to be a professional douche. That time he said women are not as funny as men? The time he asked, “When did we start giving a shit about [transgender] people?” So … SURPRISE! … now Carolla has joined Fox News as a commentator. He’ll be chumming it up with Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor” and appear on other shows occasionally as well.

The last thing that network needs is another dude who tries to pass off bigotry as “humor.” I understand that Carolla has some opinions that might be considered “liberal,” but I sure as shit do not consider a homophobic sexist qualified to represent me or most other liberals I know. Another reason not to watch this trash (although, in fairness, the only time I watch any Fox News is when my nearly-70-year-old suburban Republican father puts it on when I go visit — so, enjoy Dad!). [NYMag.com] [Photo: Getty]

  • Justin Timberlake has penned an open letter to apologize for a video made by his friends in which they walked around Los Angeles and asked random homeless people (and other random folks) to wish him and Jessica Biel a happy wedding. In the surprisingly-well-written-for-a-pop-star letter, Justin calls the video “distasteful” and “unsavory” and says he had no knowledge of its existence and “absolutely ZERO contribution to it.” He also says the video was not, as reported, shown at his wedding. “It seems that these days, misconception gets around the world before the actual truth even wakes up and gets it’s [sic] pants on,” he writes, before joking (?) that his friends are being sentenced by him to 100 hours of community service as punishment.

Planned Parenthood Files New Lawsuit Against State Of Texas

  • Planned Parenthood in Texas filed a new lawsuit today regarding a federal appeals court decision to not reconsider a ruling that allows TX to exclude PP from its low-income women’s healthcare funding. TX is expressly excluding PP because the organization provides abortions, even though the majority of the care it provides come in the form of cancer screenings, birth control prescriptions, and other basic health care. Our Hitched columnist Andrea Grimes, who lives in Austin, TX, explains it all in depth here. [Reuters]
  • Another young woman tells the story of how she was failed by so-called “support services” when she was raped and impregnated.  She was actually told by someone at an anti-abortion “crisis pregnancy center” that because she and her rapist were both white, the baby would have an easier time being adopted. This, my friends, is why you should never, ever go to a CPC. [Reproductive Health Reality Check]

Courtney Love

Courtney Love is working on a movie or Broadway musical about her relationship with Kurt Cobain set to Nirvana music, according to none other than Britney Spears’ ex-manager Sam Lufti. Lufti is currently suing Spears and her parents for defamation and explained in court yesterday how he’s been keeping busy.  ”[Love and I] are currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on [Love's] life and Kurt Cobain’s,” he explained. Outside the courtroom Lufti clarified the musical/movie is just “an idea,” which I suppose it has to be for now because Love is on bad terms with both her daughter Frances Bean Cobain and Cobain’s ex-bandmates. But hey, if creating a musical that might never get made is keeping Courtney Love busy and off Twitter, I say go on with your bad self.  [Guardian UK] [Photo: Bauer Griffin]
