  • Justin Timberlake sang Jessica Biel down the aisle when the pair wed in Italy last week. Let me repeat that: he sang her down the aisle. It’s like the “Singing Bride” in reverse! Would you be cool with your groom singing as song to you as you walk down the aisle (assuming he can sing, duh) or do you think this is as weird as The Frisky staff does? [OMG Yahoo]

“Confidence is the important thing with beauty, mostly. It’s really about doing what you believe is beautiful. I feel most beautiful when I have my red lips on and when I have my cat eyeliner on and my hair curled—that’s what I feel good in, even though lots of people will see me with straight hair and no makeup on, and they’ll say I look so much younger. I don’t really care, though. I don’t care if they think I look prettier without the makeup and hair — it’s about what makes you feel good about yourself. I like having makeup on; I like the discipline it requires. For example, I can’t just dive into a cheeseburger; I’ll have some nice grilled chicken … or a salad. Although salad is hard to eat with lipstick on, too. (Laughs) But there’s a discipline involved … you can’t touch your face with your hands as often, which is good, because you won’t get sick as often. It’s like wearing high heels: there’s a ladylike discipline involved with wearing high heels or a corset … or pencil skirts. Suddenly you have to change the way you are in the world, and I think makeup and hair are a little like that.”

– Dita Von Teese gave an epic interview to beauty blog Into The Gloss and I love this quote. Beauty (and fashion!) should be about what you think looks good on yourself and what makes you feel beautiful. Is that being a tomboy? Is that being uber-feminine like Dita? You should not let the multi-million dollar beauty and fashion industries dictate how you should present yourself anymore than you should let religious folks, feminists, or Internet commenters dictate that. Whatever you want to do for you is your choice.

After the jump, Dita gets serious and talks … dun-dun-duhnnnnnnnn … nipple hair: Keep reading »

  • Jessica Simpson’s parents Joe Simpson and Tina Simpson have released a statement regarding their divorce filing, but it makes no mention of the rumors that Joe recently came out as gay to his family and has a 20-year-old boyfriend. “It is an amicable split and there is no third party involved,” says the statement. “Any other related allegations are completely false. The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time.” Personally I don’t care one way or the other if Joe Simpson is gay … but I do wonder what Papa Joe used to preach about homosexuality back when he was a Baptist preacher.

  • Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign says it still supports the Tea Party’s Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who mind-bogglingly said that “God intended” pregnancies that result from rape. Mourdock is running a TV ad featuring Romney; the presidential campaign is apparently A-OK with continuing that endorsement. Keeeeeeep digging yourselves in a hole, boys. The election is ever so close. [AP, Guardian UK]

Rapists will pretty much use any excuse to avoid taking responsibility for their rapes, usually by blaming it on their victim. She was wearing a short skirt. She was passed out drunk. She had flirted with him. A-n-y-thing to avoid responsibility for his own actions. So I should not be surprised that an accused rapist in New York City is blaming his alleged sexual assault and physical attack on a 21-year-old woman on mind-erasing Four Loko drinks. Keep reading »
