Christina Aguilera‘s mug shot is here from her arrest for public intoxication yesterday with boyfriend Matthew Rutler. All I can think is, Damn, Lindsay Lohan needs to show her how this is done. Lip plumper, Christina, lip plumper! [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
“The stigma [around HIV/AIDS] hasn’t gone away after 30 years, and young people are still getting infected. We can’t get to the young people in this country because it’s very conservative and you can’t get into schools to teach people about sex. We can in Africa, but we can’t seem to over here. With young people, the infection rates rise and until you inform people and make this disease a non-stigmatized thing, you’re never going to have any change and we’re batting our heads against a brick wall. We need to get into schools.”
— Elton John, blabbing about sex education at his Oscars bash this weekend, makes more sense when he talks than the entire religious right and their “abstinence only” nonsense. Bristol Palin, listen to the crazy gay Brit who wears the silly costumes! [Fox 411] Keep reading »

After the jump, meet EscapeHatch, one of our most prolific commenters. Keep reading »
“[I was called "blubber"] between the ages of 8 and 11. Looking back on it, I really wasn’t that heavy. I was just stockier than the other sporty, whippy-looking kids. … You know, I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me — and it was such a backhanded comment — they would say, ‘You’ve got such a beautiful face,’ in the way of, like, ‘Oh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.’”
— Kate Winslet, Oscar winner and great beauty (IMHO), was no stranger to unkind comments, but she has a super-healthy attitude towards her body as an adult. Kate told Glamour she works out to Pilates DVDs, cooks chicken nearly every night and has no plans to get Botox or plastic surgery. How strangely refreshing! [Glamour] Keep reading »
Damn, Europe gets all the good stuff, like a Wii game about spanking and much-anticipated 3D porn. Waaaahhh! Yesterday Penthouse, the
esteemed shameless smut rag, launched a high definition 3D channel, which runs from 11 p.m to 5 a.m. and promises 30 hours of new hardcore and softcore pornography a month. Hustler is expected to launch a 3D adult channel later this month as well … which probably means Charlie Sheen will never leave the house ever again. I never though I would say this, Penthouse and Hustler, but thank you.

It’s Women’s History Month, sisters, but you wouldn’t know it based on one women’s group’s plans. The Network of Enlightened Women, a conservative group, is hosting its annual Gentleman’s Showcase on college campuses during the month of March. The Gentleman’s Showcase seeks to honor young men who “behave like gentlemen” based on a set of criteria — both general and specific — explained on NEW’s web site. Young men have been nominated in the past by women because they carried groceries, shoveled snow, opened doors and other so-called “gentlemanly” behavior. There is no prize, per se, but the accolades of conservative women everywhere!
While I don’t know why NEW has to co-opt Women’s History Month for their Gentleman’s Showcase, nor do I agree that traditional gender roles should be enforced on anyone, I don’t inherently think the idea of positively acknowledging “nice guys” on college campuses is a terrible idea. Keep reading »
A group is offering a scholarship to white men only, according to conservative news web site The Daily Caller. Any male Texas resident who is at least 25 percent Caucasian with a 3.0 GPA and financial need can apply for a $500 scholarship from The Former Majority Association for Equality. The group is concerned that, unlike women, African-Americans or Latinos or Asian/Pacific Islanders or other groups, white men do not have scholarships specifically for them. Keep reading »
Cheese puff celebs like Justin Bieber introduce their own nail polish lines. But Butter London has named their own limited edition nail polish for Kate Middleton, a shimmery purple called No More Waity Katie (her nickname in the press). Supposedly, No More Waity Katie is greige — grey and beige — but that color sure looks like purple to me! I’d like to get my fingers on this polish — and this polish on my fingers — but, hey, Butter, don’t you think $14 is a bit stiff? Not all of us are marrying into royalty, you know.
