“Hot Toddy” And Other Mixed Drinks That Have Inspired Songs


We’ve come a long way from “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” when it comes to name-dropping alcohol in music. Today’s artists get paid big bucks to sing about certain vodkas, or have a name-brand bottle of booze appear in their videos. But then some alcohol-inspired songs seem to be purely organic, created purely as a true tribute to a particular beverage. One of the most recent examples—a
Jay-Z and Usher‘s collaboration, “Hot Toddy.” What is a Hot Toddy, the uninitiated may ask? It is a mix of whiskey, boiling water, honey, lemon, and cinnamon. Sound like the drink needs all the publicity it can get.

Frisky Rant: Why Are Adults Wearing Silly Bandz?

When I was kid, I was a big trend follower. I got a Furby and carried it in a basket around school and tried to teach it bad words. I threw a fit when I left my Tamagotchi at home during a family trip, and came back to find it sick from being surrounded by its own digital poops for over 48 hours. Basically I was a little bit of a fad whore, riding whatever wave was popular. But once I hit a certain age—I’ll say 13—it stopped and I realized that I spent most of my childhood buying ridiculous plastic contraptions to seem cool, only to have them replaced by something even more hip. But these days, there is an outlier that has managed to be the “it” thing with both kids and adults. Silly Bandz. Keep reading »

A Third Woman Accuses Roman Polanski Of Rape

Former model and Glamour editor Edith Vogelhut has recently come forward to say that she was also raped by Roman Polanski. Vogelhut claims that in 1974, when she was 21 years old, she met the director at an industry party. He took her back for drinks at Jack Nicholson’s home, where Polanski pressured her to take ecstasy. Later in the evening, Vogelhut said he led her into a bedroom where he handcuffed, drugged, and repeatedly sodomized her. “I was humiliated, I had absolutely no one to tell,” she says, explaining why she has kept silent for so long. Vogelhut says it was the confession of the second accuser, actress Charlotte Lewis, that gave her the strength to go to police and talk about the incident publicly. Keep reading »
