Rihanna Spanks Perez Hilton In Her New Video For “S&M”


You don’t have to love S&M to love Rihanna‘s new music video for “S&M,” but it certainly helps! The pop princess’ ode to bondage, dominance and sadomasochism features bondage gear, pink latex, ball gags, and leather switches, and stars gossip blogger Perez Hilton lead around on a leash. (And yes, the fact that Perez Hilton gets a spanking in a video that arouses me is making my head explode.) The costumes, hair and makeup in “S&M” are incredible and it’s by far the sexiest “sexy” music video Rihanna’s ever put out. Obviously, Amelia wants me to get nothing accomplished for the rest of the day, so I’ll just … hit replay … and be .. right … back …. [Vevo via Popdust] Keep reading »

Catherine Hardwicke Was Told She Couldn’t Direct “The Fighter” Because She’s A Woman

“I couldn’t get an interview even though my last movie made $400 million. I was told it had to be directed by a man — am I crazy? []The Fighter‘] is about action, it’s about boxing, so a man has to direct it. … But they let a man direct ‘Sex and the City’ or any girly movie you’ve ever heard of.”

— “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke exposes sexism in Hollywood against female directors and this notion that they can only direct certain types of films. The directorial job on “The Fighter” went to David O. Russell and Hardwicke agreed he did a good job. But it’s complete BS, as she said, that she was told “The Fighter” had to be directed by a man.

Quickies: Kacey Jordan Is A Combination Porn Star/Babysitter

  • Kacey Jordan, porn star pal of Charlie Sheen, claims she aborted a pregnancy a couple of years ago. Guess who the would-be father allegedly was? Kevin Federline, after his divorce from Britney Spears. Yes, the only way this story could get better is if it involves K-Fed. [The Superficial]
  • Kacey Jordan also told “Good Morning America” that Charlie Sheen wanted her to babysit his kids. But Denise Richards will have you know (via Twitter) that no “adult film actresses” would be babysitting her children. [TMZ, TMZ]
  • Denise Richards is also apparently turning down oodles in tell-all money. Good for her! [PopEater]

Today’s Lady News: Wikipedia Is A Dickipedia

  • Less than 15 percent of users who edit Wikipedia’s content are women, which means the encyclopedia’s entries are likely presenting a gender-skewed version of the facts. Get online and start editing, ladies! [New York Times]
  • One hundred mothers staged a “nurse-in” in a Montreal mall after a woman was kicked out of a children’s clothing store (a children’s clothing store!) for breastfeeding her five-month-old baby. [Yahoo Shine]
  • “Pariah,” a flick about a black teen lesbian, got picked up at Sundance. [After Ellen
  • Here's what you can do to stop the "No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act," a scary bill redefining rape that I wrote about this morning. [Feministing]

Women Are More Effective Politicians, Study Says

Women politicians bring home the bacon more to their district, not to mention sponsor, co-sponsor and get enacted more bills than their male counterparts, according to a forthcoming study in the American Journal of Political Science. Univeristy of Chicago professor Christopher Berry and Stanford doctoral candidate Sarah Anzia compared male and female politicians to discover who is more effective. Not who is more popular or who gets more votes, but who can be the most effective lawmaker. Berry and Anzia concluded that because women are far less well-represented than men in all levels of government, perhaps it is only the best-of-the-best who make it and as a result, women get more done. Between 1984 and 2004, women brought an average of $49 million more back to their home districts than their male counterparts did, which held true regardless of geography. Women also sponsored an average of three more bills per Congress, co-sponsored an average of 26 more bills per Congress, and attracted more co-sponsors than their male colleagues. These findings don’t mean that women are better politicians, of course, but it appears to mean that when a woman finally gets elected, it is because she is really good at what she does. Hmph, I wonder if there’s some way this study could explain Sarah Palin? [Newsweek] Keep reading »

PETA Wants To Run Commercial Of Hot Girls Fellating Vegetables During the Super Bowl


You work that carrot, baby! In 2009, PETA was willing to pay millions to run a commercial during the Super Bowl of scantily clad women making out with vegetables. The networks declined to air “Veggie Love” — think of the children! — but now PETA is trying again with an “outtakes” video. Once again they’ve upset the delicate balance between animal rights/objectifying women. But when it comes to PETA, what else is new? Hey, how many meateaters became vegans or vegetarians because a bikini model fellated a stick of celery? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Why Are Politicians Attempting To Redefine Rape?

The “No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act” redefines “real” rape as only that which is “forcible” and has been co-sponsored by 173 mostly Republican legislators and was called a “top priority” by Speaker of the House John Boehner. Likely knowing that fully criminalizing abortion is impossible, politicians are going after the funding of abortions in certain cases of rape and incest. Slipped a roofie and raped while you are unconscious? Raped while you are blackout drunk and unable to consent? Sexually assaulted by your uncle at age 19? If you are poor and need governmental funding to help terminate a pregnancy resulting from this horrific acts, there will be no help for you.

I hope your breakfast is sitting well with you, because you’re about to get queasy if you read on. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Newfound Respect For Chivalry

My freshman year of college, I went on a date with a guy to a fancy restaurant in Manhattan. It was the kind of place with a white tablecloth, where a busboy scraped the crumbs off the table with a comb once your plates were removed and the maitre’d pulled out women’s chairs for them. That’s where I made my big statement: the maitre’d pulled out a chair for me and I walked around to the other chair, pulled it out for myself and sat down. I wasn’t just being rude; I thought I was making a point about how I — and by extension all women — didn’t need to be treated with chivalry. Keep reading »

Portia De Rossi’s Mom Didn’t Want Her To Date Ellen DeGeneres

“My mother would freak out about me dating women. If I called her and said I’d been out on a date, she’d start panicking and saying, ‘What if they found out? What if they found out who you are?’ So I’d say, ‘Mom, relax, I’m not dating Ellen DeGeneres, for God’s sake.’ It was really funny because when I finally called her and said, ‘Mom, guess who I’m dating? Ellen DeGeneres,’ it was that worst case scenario moment for her. I guess it was for me, also, because I had been kind of creeping out of the closet, but I’d never come out in the media and confirmed that I was, in fact, gay. I just lived my life openly and whoever knew, knew. But I’ve since realized that that’s even more damaging, because if people assume that you’re gay but you don’t publicly admit to it, it seems like there really is something to be ashamed of.”

Quickies: Sarah Palin Is “Great Masturbation Material” For Tracy Morgan

  • Tracy Morgan called Sarah Palin “great masturbation material” — a sexist assessment of the telegenic but dimwitted ex-governor, but nevertheless one that holds a grain of truth. So, if his “30 Rock” co-star Tina Fey does a spot-on Sarah Palin impersonation, does that mean Tracy thinks Tina is great masturbation material, too? [The Superficial]
  • Author Terry McMillian recently tweeted that Willow and Jaden Smith were being “pimped” and “exploited” by their parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, and that she saw an “arrogance in their demeanor and behavior.” She then issued an apology, no doubt in response to rabid “Whip My Hair” fans. [ONTD]
