Perez Hilton is furiously trying to backpedal and say it was fine for him to post an up-skirt photo of 17-year-old Miley Cyrus because she was wearing panties — but ABC is not having it. The station has pulled a rotating banner ad for “The View” from Perez’s blog. A source told MSNBC’s The Scoop blog, “It has to do with the morality of the issue. Miley is a minor, period. There are ethics involved in running an ad on a site that potentially violated the rights of a minor and that is what the conversation is about about a network level.” Will other advertisers follow ABC’s lead? Should they? [MSNBC] Keep reading »
Civil liberties nightmare or a f**king great idea? Police in Queensland, Australia, now have the authority to fine citizens $100 to $300 for committing the “public nuisance” of cussing in public. Queensland’s head of state, Anna Bligh, said to expect a 20 percent rise in public nuisance complaints, based on trial programs in South Brisbane and Townsville. Why are Aussies so concerned about naughty language? They’re not. Apparently, swear words are just a moneymaker. Bligh said that targeting public pottymouths (along with those who pee in public and other acts of disorderly conduct) could generate the government some major bucks. Watch your mouths, Aussies!

How do we feel about corsets? Burlesque performers, like our girl Dita Von Teese, can wear a corset and look damn hot doing it. But on the other end of the spectrum, there’s those frightening women who mush their organs together inside tight corsets, gunning for a six-inch waist. Chicks like that have got some serious ish.
Somewhere in the middle is Megan Fox in “Jonah Hex,” which looks likes it’s set in the Wild West and calls for her to wear an old-timey corset and bustle. Fox recently spoke with InStyle magazine about how the “Jonah Hex” wardrobe department snapped her into corsets to get her waist down to 18 inches, which “would leave these deep grooves, these deep indents from the boning in the corsets, for the whole next day.” Ew, right?

This is one of those stories that you hope is just something from an episode of “30 Rock,” but then you’re, like, Ugh, these people really exist:
Sarah Burge, 50, owns a swingers’ sex party club and is known as the “Human Barbie” for her $600,000-worth of plastic surgery treatments. She’s also the mother of three daughters. Her eldest, Charlotte, 23, dances burlesque; her middle daughter, Hannah, 16, started getting Botox injections last year; and her 7-year-old, Poppy, wears lip gloss, high heels and makeup, and loves pole dancing.
Yep, she’s 7. Keep reading »
Betty White sex photos?! Sounds like hooey, but who knows what this kinky minx was up to in her younger days. According to the gossip blog ZackTaylor.ca, “industry insiders” have been contacted about purchasing four photographs of 88-year-old White and her late husband, Allen Ludden, a television host, allegedly engaged in “sexual activities.” That could mean anything from a chaste peck on the lips to … well … anything Tila Tequila would do. The photos were allegedly found in a box of memorabilia left behind at the Golden Girl’s old house.
Oh, Betty! We would expect this from that hussy Rue McClanahan but not from you. [ZackTaylor.ca, Showbiz Spy]

Every blog and media outlet in existence has weighed in on Perez Hilton‘s fixin’-for-a-jail-cell tweet that linked to an up-skirt photo of Miley Cyrus. Perez quickly deleted the tweet, so most of us have not actually seen it. But, apparently, Miley wasn’t wearing any underwear while she was exiting a car and … well, you know what happened next.
Miley Cyrus is only a few months shy of turning 18 years old, so everyone is wondering if Perez will be busted for “child porn.” Now, nothing really shocks me anymore, but as deep as my utter cynicism can be penetrated, I’m shocked that so many smart, compassionate people are missing the real story here:
It doesn’t matter if Miley Cyrus is a few months shy of 18 or she’s 100 years old. When a photographer distributed, and Perez then posted, a crotch shot, Miley was violated. Keep reading »
