This guy knows everything about bears, and can even hold a baby grizzly bear on his lap. Let’s date, Dave Salmoni; I promise I won’t bite nearly as hard as a BEAR! [Jimmy Kimmel Live] Keep reading »

Scarlett Johansson’s Nude Pics Inspire #ScarlettJohanssoning

Ever since Scarlett Johansson‘s nude pics surfaced the other day, people have been taking part in a strange, sexy and rather risque new hobby. It’s called Scarlett Johanssoning, and it involves doing just what it sounds like: standing butt naked in front of a mirror and taking pictures of yourself. Hey, if we had butts as nice as ScarJo’s, we’d be Scarlett Johanssoning too. Some NSFW SJ-inspired pics after the jump. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

My Boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt Really Knows How To Ride A Bike


Riding a fixed gear (aka no brake) bike in the city is something of a point of pride for many too-cool-for-school city bicyclists. I personally think it’s stupid and asking to die, but whatever. In any case, my famous boyfriend, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, plays a fixed-gear-riding bike messenger in the new movie “Premium Rush,” running from the cops as he tries to deliver a mysterious envelope. Truthfully, this movie looks kind of terrible. But will I see it? I have to support my fake boyfriend, don’t I? [NYMag] Keep reading »

Designers David and Phillip Blond make outrageous, sparkly and flirtatious clothes. Their latest collection is inspired by Playboy (and we’re guessing will have some kinda tie in with the new “Playboy” TV show). Their bunny costumes were so off the charts fabulous they made even me want to try and shake a little bunny butt. Okay, not really, but close! Check out their wild collection after the jump!

A Seal Of A Different Shade Is Shunned

Take a look at that face. How could you not love that face? And yet, this little seal pup was left all by his lonesome, abandoned and blind on a deserted beach in Tyuleniy Island, Russia. He was spotted by photographer Anatoly Strakhov, who noted that his blindness would mean that he’d likely be unable to survive in the wild. Thankfully, the animal was taken in by a local marine life group. Was he shunned because of his rare auburn fur? Sigh. Poor gingers don’t get any respect. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

My Embarrassing Run-In With Tavi Gevinson

Before working at The Frisky, I spent a few years writing for both music magazines and gossip mags. And it was funny, because the people you’d think I’d get nervous to talk to, I didn’t necessarily, while others left me sweaty palmed and dry mouthed. Michel Gondry? We joked around and took a bunch of stupid snapshots. Me and Andrew WK had a life-changingly good chat. And I once took comedians Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and David Wain to a frat party and it was totally fun. But when I had the chance to meet Blake Schwarzenbach from the band Jawbreaker, I ran away from him because i was afraid I was going to say something really stupid.

This is all to say that fandom and idol worship is completely relative and weird and individualistic. And so it was when I spotted tiny, adorable, and completely incredible Tavi Gevinson out front of the Ace Hotel the other day. I love her. I admire her. And I totally fanned out on her.
