“The Hunger Games” Jennifer Lawrence seems rather sweet and awesome — and apparently she’s also a pretty good shot. She was asked to go head-to-head against the host of a Spanish television show in archery and fared pretty well for herself. I guess playing Katniss Everdeen really rubbed off on her. [YouTube]

“It’s a strange thing that before you marry that it’s a custom to give a girl a rock. When you’re married, you should get the rock, and when you get engaged, you should get a simple band. It just seems like the engagement is weaker, so it should be the band, and when you get to the wedding, that’s the rock. It should be the reverse with the rings. People break up their engagements all the time, and then the guy loses the rock. It’s not fair to the man. The woman should stick it through to the end to get the rock. Of course, the real prize is the love.”

Leelee Sobieski, at the premiere of “The Five Year Engagement,” on how she’d rearrange the whole marriage ritual if she could. Sobieski is married to the father of her daughter Louisanna, fashion designer Adam Kimmel. Makes sense to me. [NYMag.com]

That’s what the Anti-Defamation League of Philadelphia seems to think. The organization has taken the hipster clothing chain to task for a T-shirt featuring a Star of David design they say is strikingly similar to one that was used to identify Jews by the Nazis during the Holocaust and was embroidered on concentration camp uniforms.

“We find this use of symbolism to be extremely distasteful and offensive, and we are outraged that your company would make this product available to your customers,” said Barry Morrison, the regional director of the ADL in a letter to Urban’s chairman and cheif executive Richard Hayne.  

The Kellog shirt is by Dutch label Wood Wood, and retails for $100. So far, Urban has yet to respond to the ADL’s claims and the shirt is still available on their site. [ONTD]

The Japanese girl group AKB48 is under fire for filming a series of suggestive candy ads that some claim promote homosexuality. The group’s ads for a sugary gummy candy feature the members of the group clad in school girl uniforms passing a piece of the candy between one another using only their mouths. Watchdog groups claim this ad promotes the gay lifestyle and is overly suggestive, despite the fact that none of the girls actually touch lips in the thirty-second spot.

The candy makers are standing behind the ad, and say that it’s one of the most popular commercials they’ve ever run (surprise, surprise). AKB48 is hugely successful in Japan and across Asia; last year they made more than $200 million in sales. The band features more than 60 (!) members and has its own dedicated performance space in Tokyo. [Yahoo]

Hold on to your sparkles, Betsey Johnson, fashion’s original wild child, is primed to get her own reality TV show on the Style Network later this year. Tentatively titled “Betsey + Lulu,” the show will follow Ms. Johnson and her daughter Lulu’s adventures and mishaps. The show is slated to focus on the relationship between mom and daughter, and how “single mother Lulu wants to launch her own fashion label and finally step out from Betsey’s shadow.” Betsey and Lulu have long collaborated — with a teenage Lulu walking in her mom’s shows in the ’90s — so we’re psyched!
