  • Channing Tatum much prefers being a Hollywood leading man to a male stripper, thank you. In the latest issue of OUT magazine, he says stripping kinda sucked. “I never enjoyed the taking-the-clothes-off part,” Tatum said. “You are on a stage with people yelling at you, and you feel you’re a rock star, but you’re nothing – you’re just a guy taking off his clothes, looking like a fool in a stupid outfit.” Yes, but a hot fool. [Just Jared]
  • Chris Brown gave his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, a two-band diamond ring, which she tweeted a pic of herself wearing on her middle finger. I would need a lot more than a diamond ring to date that jerk. [PopCrush]

Missouri Might Let Your Boss Decide If Your Health Insurance Covers Birth Control

  • Missouri’s House of Representatives advanced a so-called “conscience” bill that would allow employers to opt-out of providing health care coverage for birth control, abortion, or sterilization if it is against their personal religious beliefs. Supporters of the bill claim it protects the “religious liberty” of employers, but everyone else says it is an intrusion of an employer’s beliefs into their employees personal lives.

  • The Army may send female soldiers to its elite Ranger School to put them on par with their male counterparts, which would also help them with future promotions. This consideration is the result of the military deciding to open up more jobs for women. [Chicago Tribune]  
  • Pregnant women may not be getting tested for STDs, despite recommendations by medical professionals, a new study finds. Getting tested for STDs is important for moms-to-be because some can be passed along from mama to baby. [Reuters]

Jaden Smith and aliens

“I was at the White House with my family and we were getting a tour. Barack and Michelle and Sasha and Malia and me and Jada and the kids, we’re walking through the White House. The night before, Jaden had said to me, ‘Dad, I gotta ask the president about the aliens.’ And I said, ‘Dude, no. No, it’s not cool. It’s not cool, it’s embarrassing.’ I was, like, ‘Jaden, DO NOT ask the president.’”

Will Smith is completely endearing on BBC Radio 1 describing a visit to the White House with his family. Which I guess is a perk of being a movie star?

But do adolescent boys mind their fathers when it comes to the important matter of the existence of extraterrestrial life? No, they do not. Find out what happened, after the jump.  Keep reading »

Dating Don'ts: Criticism
It's time to put a moratorium on beating yourself up. Read More »

I’ve been thinking a lot about a date I had this weekend. I’m not sure that the guy and I are a right fit for some compatibility reasons, but we did end up having an interesting conversation over coffee on Saturday night. We were discussing the different ways that online dating sucks for girls and for guys. Girls, I was telling him, are inundated with creepy, overly sexual messages from random dudes, including dudes who are way, way, waaaaay too old for us. And this guy was telling me how for dudes, one of the worst things he experiences on a date with a girl is when she is too guarded and gives off a vibe of “I don’t need you.”

The  stereotype may be that women are “too needy,” this guy told me, but the reality of dating strong, successful, accomplished, financially independent women is the exact opposite. “Okay, great, so what role am I supposed to have?” This guy asked me hypothetically. “It’s great if a girl’s got her life together. I think that’s awesome! But I need her to want me to be there because she needs a partner in some way, or else, what’s the point?”  Keep reading »

WTF Are You Wearing, Bill Murray? Oh, Who Cares, You Can Do Anything You Want

Bill Murray's plaid Cannes jacket

Bill Murray upstaged the rest of Cannes doing what he does best: being a lovable old coot who doesn’t give a fuck. I’m sure Anna Wintour is riding her senior editors as we speak figuring out how to get plaid-on-plaid-on-plaid in the next issue of Vogue.  Bill walked the red carpet for Wes Anderson’s new movie “Moonrise Kingdom” and appears to have brought along his own mini-camera to capture the occasion. As you do. Keep reading »
