Robert Ackroyd and Katy Perry at Coachella photo
  • Katy Perry is dating Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, claims Life & Style, and was supposedly blabbing about it at Coachella, where she performed. Whew. That’s a relief. Glad to hear she’s not getting back with Russell Brand. [Life & Style]
  • Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel scoped out the Palazzo Margherita in Bernalda, Italy, as a wedding location — it’s the same place filmmaker Sofia Coppola tied to knot to that guy from the band Phoenix! [PopCrush]
  • Check out the most insane overreactions to that horrible new song “Hot Problems.” [Gurl.com]
  • Guess who’s asked basketball player Jeremy Lin out on a date? [The FW]
  • Axl Rose might be dead on Twitter, but not in real life, thankfully. [Celebrity Cafe]

Today’s Lady News: Young Women Want Career & Money Moreso Than Men, Study Claims

Today's Lady News photo
  • Young women ages 18 to 34 want a career and to earn good money moreso than their male counterparts do, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center. The recent study says two-thirds of women prioritize advancing their career, while 15 years ago it was closer to half of all young women who felt that way. Watch out, boys! [Los Angeles Times]
  • Oklahoma’s “fetal personhood” bill, which would have granted personhood status to fertilized eggs, has failed in the state Legislature. “Fetal personhood” bills would criminalize all abortion and IVF treatments. [Reuters]
  • Tennessee’s House of Representatives has advanced an anti-abortion bill that would allow prosecutors to charge someone for harming an embryo — the cells that form into a fetus up to eight weeks after conception. Harming a “viable fetus” — as in, an eight-month’s pregnant woman who is murdered — is already illegal in the state, so this current bill is a clear attack on abortion rights by trying to define an embryo as a “person.” [Think Progress]
  • Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin was on “Fox & Friends” spewing nonsense about, as she put it, “feminist myths about this so-called wage gap.” [Mediaite] Keep reading »

As an incentive for working mothers not to drop out of the workforce, the Insurance Australia Group (IAG) is offering double pay for new moms for their first six weeks back from maternity leave. The double-pay incentive is on top of IAG’s 14 weeks paid maternity leave after giving birth or adopting a child, plus an Australian law that either gives parents up to 18 weeks pay at minimum wage or a $5,800 “baby bonus,” whichever is greater. Color me impressed, Aussies. Keep reading »

Bra Gun Holster? Hmm, I Just Don’t Know About Packing Heat Between My Boobs

gun holster bra photo

A bra gun holster probably makes more sense to ardent NRA fans and gun-owners. Right? I hope so, because as much as I believe in a lady’s right to own a gun, carrying it between her ta-tas sounds like a terrible idea. The $40 Flashbang Bra Gun Holster is a Kydex pouch, molded to fit the special model of gun, and it attaches to the piece of bra fabric between your two cups. The gun doesn’t hide in your boobs; it actually hangs free under them.  Pistol-packing lasses can whip the gun free by merely yanking it — after reaching down the front of their shirt first, of course. I’d be way too afraid I’d shoot myself in the boob, or worse, to pack heat in my bazoombas. I wonder what the NRA’s stance is on reconstructive breast surgery for dopey accidents. [Wired]

One NYC-branch of sex shop Toys In Babeland is (wisely) capitalizing on the new “mommy porn” 50 Shades Of Grey craze with cocktail party classes teaching Kinky Sex 101. The open-to-the-public classes will be free; the first 25 kinkster guests will go home with a Christian Grey-approved goody bag: a paddle, necktie, satin bondage kit, edible spanking powder (?!), and vibrating nipple clamps. (Yes, really.) Private classes are being held for more exclusive folks; the NYC-based blog Gothamist seems to think Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany are attending. Oh, be still, my heart.

It’s silly that  Toys In Babeland have to call this a “50 Shades” class instead of what it is — bondage/dominance/sadomasochism, or BDSM — but I guess too many people think a little kink in the bedroom is freaky. But whatever. I’ve already RSVPed and enlisted two girlfriends to come with. [Gothamist]
