Stop the presses: this Kate Spade newspaper classified-printed iPad cover is a funky, literary take on the could-be-boring protective shield. Reading the fake classified ads like “Volunteers needed at the zoo” and “Found: spotted chihuahua” will keep you preoccupied when you’re out of a WiFi zone — not that you’d ever let that happen. While $85 might seem a bit steep for what amounts to a piece of plastic, it’s worth it to save your iPad from a klutzy accident, while looking geek-chic. No ink-stained fingers necessary!
“We have our catchphrases about girls ['grenade,' etc.] but the four girls on the show are as wild as the guys. It’s not just one way. It’s not biased or sexist.”
— Oh, Vinny Guadagnino. You might be the smartest (and most emotionally mature!) cast member on “Jersey Shore,” but you’re still a dim bulb. [Celeb Dirty Laundry]

I am not always the biggest fan of Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts here at The Frisky. But I would like to give the senator my sincere respect for opening up to “60 Minutes” about the sexual abuse he suffered as a child from a camp counselor.

A poll on ApprovalPolls.com asks if CBS reporter Lara Logan, who was beaten and sexually assaulted on February 11 while reporting from Tahrir Square in Egypt, is to blame for the attack on her.
Though this poll was probably put up by some random nobody, it’s not at all unheard of that there are people who think Logan is in some way to blame. After all, what was a woman — a blonde! — doing in a dangerous place like Egypt?! PopEater is even reporting that network executives “met to discuss if female journalists belong in the Middle East,” which is hella depressing. (Meanwhile, some commenters discussing the story on sites like Huffington Post explicitly blame CBS.)
I can’t even believe I have to repeat this but it’s worth repeating: the only person to blame for a sexual assault is the person who does the assaulting. Period.

I’ll console myself with the fact Blake Lively has a pair of Louboutins named after her (and I don’t!) with the fact these heels are kinda fugs. Right? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
When he’s not busy discussing abortion, rape, and socialized medicine
with Rolling Stone
, Justin Bieber
is mastering impressions. The Bieb’s impression of Barack Obama
totally blows Fred Armisen
‘s impression of the president on “Saturday Night Live
” out of the water. (Not that that
‘s hard.) Pretty good for a Canadian. [Mediaite

Meet Belinda Heggen, my new hero. During an on-air broadcast about an Australian soccer player and a little urn he received as an honor, Belinda cracked a joke about her co-anchor’s dick size. I love how she says this with a complete straight face — get this woman a raise! [Salon via The Daily What] Keep reading »
Justin Bieber: I really don’t believe in abortion. It’s, like, killing a baby?
Rolling Stone: How about in cases of rape?)
JB: Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.
Oof. “Everything happens for a reason”? Really? I may not care about your opinions on abortion, but the world’s population of 11-year-old girls sure does. Isn’t this heavy stuff for the “Hannah Montana” crowd?
After the jump, Justin also sounded off to Rolling Stone about the American vs. Canadian health care systems. Keep reading »
