“I think I am a feminist in a way. It’s not something I consciously decided I was going to be; perhaps it’s because I grew up in a singing group [Destiny's Child] with other women, and that was so helpful to me. It kept me out of so much trouble and out of bad relationships. My friendships with my girls are just so much a part of me that there are things I am never going to do that would upset that bond. I never want to betray that friendship because I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women. I think we learn a lot from our female friends – female friendship is very, very important. It’s good to support each other, and I do try to put that message in my music.”

Snooki has a pussy(cat) problem! “Jersey Shore”‘s sloppiest drunk has been denied the trademark for her name because a 2003 children’s book, Adventures of Snooky: Under the Sea, already beat her to it. Snooky the cat is also orange and could scratch your eyes out. However, unlike Snooki the human, who searches for Sea Breezes and guidos on the beaches of New Jersey, Snooky is searching for his lost family in the ocean. Aww, that’s sweet!
Anyway, watch your back, U.S. Patent Office. Someone’s totally going to jump up from behind you and rip out all your hair extensions. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Cue the eyeroll. A British celeb style website called MyCelebrityFashion polled men on their girlfriends’ clothes and asked, “What trends make women look promiscuous?” Because you can tell a slut by what she’s wearing, duh.

“Eat Pray Love” opens tonight and chances are there’s a lady in your life who wants to see it. But is it really worth $10 and painful subzero-air conditioning? A lot of people hated the book. A lot of people hate Julia Roberts. But a lot of people loved the book. And a lot of people love Julia Roberts. Decisions, decisions. Lucky for you, we’ve got a flowchart to make the decision process much easier. Keep reading »
“Many women dream of finding Prince Charming … but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly, I’m just glad science has provided a few other options.”
