We were heartbroken to hear of Beastie Boy Adam Yauch’s passing today, after a protracted battle with throat cancer. Yauch, who also went by MCA (and Nathanial Hornblower) was an integral part of the Beasties from their beginnings as an early ’80s hardcore band through their most recent release, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. The band’s outstanding thirty year career earned them a place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last month, though Yauch was too ill to attend the ceremony. We are deeply saddened to learn he lost his fight against cancer, but pleased to learn that heaven just got a little bit more Beastie. Enjoy their amazing Spike Jonze-directed video for “Sabotage” and share your favorite Beastie songs and videos in the comments. [Global Grind] Keep reading »
Jennifer Lopez is nothing if not a master at changing her image and her look all the time. Like in the new video for her track with Wisin & Yandel, titled “Follow the Leader,” Lopez had “Lideres” — Spanish for “leaders” — faux-inked on her chest. She also had an elaborate skull/dragon/Ed Hardy design etched on her back. Of course, the tattoos aren’t real, merely character affectations for the video, but it would be pretty cool if J. Lo really did get a major chest piece done. Check out a shot of the huge back tat after the jump!

Mary Katrantzou is a designer who takes a lot of risks, and they often pay off. But in the case of this bizarre printed frock-cum-apron worn by January Jones at a screening of “La Revolucion Bleue,” well, the risks certainly didn’t pay off. As Coco Chanel once famously pointed out, before you leave the house, it’s always good to remove at least one accessory. This dress is like 47 accessories too many. Next time, January.
I’ve been short all my life — I think I stopped growing at, like, 12 or something, and depending on the day, I will tell you I’m 5’2″ or 5 feet. I really think i’m probably just 5 feet tall, but I lied about it for so long that I’m not sure what the truth is. When you are short, people will readily call you cute, but not pretty or beautiful. When you’re short, it feels harder to be taken seriously. And when you’re short, absolutely nothing ever fits without getting major tailoring.
I wanted to be taller for so long — for sooooo long — until one day I didn’t. Until I realized that there are actually a lot of advantages to being short. Like, sure, you’re always cute, but then again, you’re always considered cute. And there’s never really a dude who’s off-limits because of his height. And you can still shop at Gap Kids if you want.
Anyway, there are tons of fierce short girls out there — women whose small stature doesn’t dictate their large personalities. Check ‘em out.
