You’re going to be seeing a whole heck of a lot more Miss Piggy soon. That’s because she’s got a big role in the newest Muppets movie (out this November). In it, she plays a high-powered editor at French Vogue – and she has the wardrobe to match. In a new spread for InStyle, Miss Piggy was outfitted in the finest garments from designers like Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu and Brian Atwood. “Her humor, flamboyance and joie de vivre inspired me to design a decadent feathered dress that features her most sensational qualities,” said Wu.

With all this political and social upheaval, will no one think of the kitties? They need their kibble and belly rubs, too. [99Purrcent.Tumblr.com]
You wake up in a stupor. You think: Where is my scarf-covered microphone stand? Where are my platform man-boots? My feathered hair? My deep-v jumpsuit and coordinated leather earrings? And then you remember: I’m not Steven Tyler, and your world comes crashing down. But! Oh! Now, at least, you can dress like you’re an aging rock star grasping onto the last vestiges of his former cool! Tyler’s new line — called Andrew Charles — is a collaboration with Andy and Tommy Hilfiger (whaaaaaaat?), and can be found at Macy’s. [ABC News Radio]
Remember how Miranda Kerr and her hot-as-hell baby daddy Orlando Bloom popped out a baby muffin, like, a mere 10 months ago? Well, now she had to go and show off her ridiculous (RIDICULOUS!) post-baby stomach in a series of “DIY” ads for Rag & Bone, shot by Bloom. The concept of a “DIY ad” is really too much for my poor brain to handle, but suffice it to say, Kerr looks like her body is literally allergic to babies. Like she outsourced the baby carrying to some other poor fool. It’s not fair that people can be this attractive, really.
This supercut of “Very Special Episodes” tackling difficult issues runs the gamut from “Saved by the Bell’s” Jesse Spano “I’m so excited” on speed rant, to the “Dinosaurs” does steroids. But my own VSE fave? How about the time Tom Hanks played the alcoholic uncle on “Family Ties” and got drunk on
Michael J. Fox’s hair gel vanilla extract? How much vanilla extract would you really have to swill before getting even the tiniest buzz? Somebody try it and report back. [YouTube]
Fact: baby animals learning to walk look like drunks. Drunks or teenagers on acid. But cuter! Like this baby elephant taking his first baby elephant steps ever! (Extra points for small British child yelling out in the background “It’s a baaaaaaaby!”) [YouTube]
“People have gotten very afraid of women’s non-violent protest. Where no one paid attention before, and saw women as ‘toothless bulldogs,’ today you see the Jenni Williams and Jestina Mukokos of Zimbabwe being arrested as soon as they step out. They haven’t done anything that we did not do. There is [now] this recognition that, hmm, these ‘toothless bulldogs’ have some power and if we don’t stop what they’re doing we’re going to get in trouble. Every time a group of women decide they’re going to protest, the entire government is uneasy. So that’s the first thing. But the second thing is there is a global conversation going on that there is no way that peace can be negotiated, there is no way we can move from conflict to peace without the roles, the ideas, the unique skills and capacities of women.”
– Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee on the political power of women. Gbowee received the Nobel Peace Prize for her work organizing the Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace, in war-torn Liberia. The movement is widely credited with helping bring the country’s longstanding civil war to an end. Watch her harrowing story, “Pray the Devil Back to Hell,” on Tuesday at 10 p.m. on PBS, part of the channel’s 5-part “Women, War and Peace” series.
This may be a controversial and somewhat politically incorrect opinion, but I’ll just say it: Jared Leto has aged to look like a female-to-male transsexual. There is something that happens when a dude is too pretty, and his face refuses to age up and out of that, which makes him seem just kind of strange looking. And that’s the Leto Effect. Just look at him in this Hugo Boss ad for proof.
James Franco, on the other hand, seems to have actually discovered his jawbone. See this new Gucci ad? His face has filled out and gone from rough to smooth since his “Freaks and Geeks” days. Don’t worry, I still think he’d be really annoying to hang out with. But at least he’s not prettier than me. (Gah, I can’t believe I said something nice about James Franco).
Occupy Wall Street. Afghanistan. Iraq. Unemployment. Self-absorbed health editors. The cancellation of “Charlie’s Angels.” Everybody is having a lot of feelings right now, about a lot different things. There’s a crapload of feelings juice being jizzed out all over the place. Are you jizzing feelings juice? Are you getting jizzed on? Keep reading »
Thanks to this video, I’ll be referring to “eyes” as “liquid orbs” from now on.
