The Ashton Kutcher promos for “Two and a Half Men” are out. Male nudity is being used to advertise a TV show? Feminism wins! Also, do you think Jon Cryer is making that face because someone’s got a case of crabs? [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »
You guys, the “Jersey Shore” season four trailer is so gross. Does this mean I’m not going to watch it? No. In fact, I’m already planning a “Jersey Shore” season premiere viewing party with soppressata and limoncello shots. You’re only allowed to come if you’ve got a fake tan and something with an Ed Hardy label. But leave your ‘roid rage at the door, please!
After the jump, the five grossest things about the season four “Jersey Shore” season four trailer: Keep reading »
Getting a tattoo as an homage to your favorite celeb is so 2010. The hot new thing to do is recreate that celeb’s rear end in crumpets. Fifteen thousand crumpets and the manpower from 12 dedicated crumpet-ers honored Pippa Middleton, depicted in her bridesmaid’s gown. Artist Laura Hadland used over 100 jars of Marmite and jam in her ode to Pippa’s patoot after the world’s most famous sister-in-law won a Beefeater Grill contest of women whom Brits would most like to “wake up to breakfast with.”
All I can say is … what a waste of food. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
Relax, New Jersey-ites. Though they’ve tried their damnedest, the cast of “Jersey Shore” has not succeeded in making the Garden State look bad. When it comes to their opinions of NJ, a Fairleigh Dickinson University Public Mind poll of 711 adults released today could not find a statistical difference between people who watch “Jersey Shore” and people who don’t: 43 percent who’ve seen the show think NJ is great, while 41 who haven’t seen the show are also fans. See, the American public is not stupid. They know there is more to NJ than just Snooki and The Situation — like Princeton University, Bruce Springsteen, and, um, “The Sopranos.”
Last week I made a joke in the comments section on the post “22 Things We Never Thought We’d Do For A Man, Until We Did” and said I moved to NJ for a dude. That seems to have ruffled some Jersey feathers. I was just kidding. Even though I eventually moved, I am still a big Jersey fan. After the jump, five nice things I have to say about the state of New Jersey: Keep reading »
When a friend introduced me to the author Kate Monro over email, explaining she’d just published a book filled with virginity loss stories, I knew that I would love it, sight unseen. The First Time: True Tales Of Virginity Lost And Found (Including My Own) totally delivered! Monro, who used to work for the band Blur and for Dazed and Confused magazine, began collecting stories on a blog called The Virginity Project. For her first book, Monro collated vignettes from Brits and Americans, from grandpas to high school girls, who all reminisced about their first time with fondness, earnestness and occasional heartbreak. It may have been a long time since any of us has been a virgin, but if the bare humanity on display in The First Time is any indication, we could do well to revisit it.
Kate Monro lives in the UK, so we had to conduct our interview over email — but I’d like to imagine we chatted over cups of Earl Grey and some Tim Tams while staring off into the London fog. Our Q&A, which was edited for length and clarity, begins after the jump. Keep reading »
My new favorite pop star? Italy‘s Gionny Scandal. What an artiste! His new song, “I’m Horny,” features a bevy of barely legal blondes sucking lollipops and being sprayed in the face with whipped cream while they sing a chorus about giving him a blowjob. Everyone’s mamma must be so proud! [Europopped] Keep reading »
A reader tells us this Summer’s Eve douche commercial played before a screening of “Harry Potter” this weekend. And I never before knew that samauri warriors and medieval jousting was all about fighting over a good, clean vagina. What did the fair maidens of yore do to get that Lysol-fresh feeling? (Thanks to commenter mywittyscreenname for the link.) [YouTube] Keep reading »
