You wouldn’t think that the folky acoustic guitar rock of Feist would set well with the freestyle hip-hop dance set. And yet! That’s exactly what happened on the streets of Oakland, when the singer performed “Cicadas and Gulls” (off of Metals) to an adoring crowd. Two members of the street dance crew Turf Feinz happened to be there, and decided to add some gorgeous slow motion moves to the festivities. What a mashup! [Pitchfork]
Today, in d-baggery: Long Island man Mark Schimel is running for state Assemblyman. This wouldn’t a big deal, except that Schimel is running against his estranged wife Michelle (pictured), to whom he’s been married for the last 32 years. Michelle’s held the seat for the last three terms, and is running as a Democrat, so Schimel is naturally running against her on the Republican ticket. Keep reading »
French Vogue‘s got the scoop — or rather the two scoops — of Gisele Bunchen’s butt on its latest cover. The topless supermodel poses with a sandy bottom on the June issue, showing off her perfect backside. What was it that Kelis said about her milkshake bringing all the boys to the yard? [Vogue]
Brooklyn Decker wore this mismatch of a Giambattista Valli dress with Blue Nile jewels to the California premiere of her new movie, “What To Expect When You’re Expecting.” And while we’d generally be hard-pressed to find anything wrong with gorgeous Brooklyn, it’s undeniable that the top half of this dress does not go with the bottom half. Not only that, it kind of reminds us of the outfits hacky-sack playing girls would wear in college. But is that a problem? For you, it might not be.
Hmm. Actress Chloe Sevigny, no stranger to transgender characters (see: “Boys Don’t Cry), says she “cried every day” while getting fitted with her prosthetic penis to play a transgender hit man in her new TV series “Hit & Miss.” The show has Sevigny playing Mia, a pre-op transgender hitman, and the character’s genitalia deeply upset the actress. “I cried every day when they put it on. You know, I’m ample-chested and I have this on. I felt very exposed, and it was hard, very hard, having people so close to your personal parts anyway — who you’re not sleeping with — for an hour-and-a-half each day, to put it on,” she admitted to The Daily Telegraph.

Here’s a reason to throw on a Saves The Day record and break out your journal: Emo kids might actually be destroying their eyesight with their stupid haircuts. Doctors in Australia say that asymmetrical haircuts — popular with the emo set — are causing an epidemic of lazy eye. “If a young emo chap has a fringe covering one eye all the time, that eye won’t see a lot of detail,” said Andrew Hogan, of the Optometrists Association of Tasmania in a no doubt adorable Australian accident. “And if it happens from a young age, that eye can become amblyotic.” So the lesson here? Mamas don’t let their babies grow up to be emo kids. And if they do, they’ll possibly have a wonky eye. [The Mercury]
