“Twilight” star, Robert Pattinson, recorded some songs for the movie’s soundtrack. In fact, his crooning helped the album steadily move up the U.S. album charts. But this time around, he’s turned down the opportunity to contribute his sultry voice to the upcoming movie sequel soundtrack. Why? Pursuing music professionally was never the actor’s intention and he’d rather keep his music career as a backup plan. The Brit is a talented composer, pianist and guitarist, so music may not be a horrible option if he’s never able to score another role after Edward Cullen. But until his 15 minutes of movie fame are up, he’s stepping aside so rock band Paramore can write the title track to the movie’s soundtrack. [I'mNotObsessed.com] Keep reading »
Your dream of walking through Barbie’s Dream House might actually turn into a reality. As we all know, Barbie is turning 50 this year and to celebrate her birthday, Mattel is planning a big party. And none other than “Top Design” judge and interior designer extraordinaire, Jonathan Adler, is leading the party planning committee. He is giving Barbie’s Malibu Dream House a major makeover. Okay, not Barbie’s Dream House, but an actual Malibu beach house. The beach house is getting redesigned to celebrate Barbie’s big 5-0. Adler is designing a Barbie-worthy bedroom, living room and closet for the beach house that will host the doll’s birthday party on March 9. I’m so jealous. Her closet is going to be insanely big to fit all those clothes. And for the inner child inside of all of us, Adler is launching a collection, “Jonathan Adler Loves Barbie,” this fall. The set will include pottery, pillows, a collectible doll and more, and will be available online and in stores. Even at 50, that bitch lives an amazing life. [Moresay.com]

How many times have we all wished we could pee standing up like a man? It would just make life so much easier. If you’re on the highway and really need to go, you won’t need to squat in a shady woodsy area with rodents and insects keeping you company. Well, wish no more! Hot on the heels of products like Whiz Biz and the Shenis is a new female urination device called Go Girl. It allows you to stand up and pee like the fellas — only the fellas don’t have to put a urine soaked doohickey back in their purses afterward. Honestly, instead of always complaining about how much better our lives would be if we could pee like a guy, there are actually benefits to peeing like a girl that we take for granted. After the jump, ten reasons sitting down instead of standing up has its advantages.

We are all a little strapped for time nowadays. It seems there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done. But there’s always time to squeeze in a few errands during lunch. Drop off dry cleaning; run to the bank; pay the cable bill; get liposuction! No seriously. Now you can get the lard sucked out of your thighs while you wait for Subway to finish preparing your six-inch sandwich. Smartlipo is a less invasive form of liposuction that can be done during your lunch break. A tiny instrument, like the size of a pencil point, is used to make the incision. And voila! It starts sucking the fat away from those hard to target areas. The most popular areas Smartlipo is being used on are the abs, love-handles and outer thighs. A woman who had the procedure done said, “It’s better than getting a cavity filled.” Yeah, a sharp object digging into my fleshy stomach — don’t know if that’s better than getting a cavity filled. Actually, they both sound like pretty crappy ways to spend a lunch break. So what are the differences between Smartlipo and regular cosmetic surgery? Keep reading »
So we’ve all heard of celebrating the holidays with traditional food items. Thanksgiving has turkey. Christmas has ham. St. Patty’s Day has beer and, uh, corned beef. Black History Month apparently has collard greens and catfish. Rainbow Grocery Store decided to print the dumbest ad featuring “black people food” in what they consider to be an attempt at celebrating Black History Month. The selection of food is supposed to be what the typical black person eats. So pork hocks and frying chickens are what black people eat on a regular basis? Because I know it’s not in my diet. All they are missing in the ad is grits and chitlins. There’s nothing wrong with eating those food items, but why are such items like seafood and ham considered to be black people food? Do white people have white food? A company rep explains, “This ad was intended to celebrate Black History Month and African American culture by sharing with our customers some of the contributions African Americans have made to the grocery industry.” Mm, ‘kay. Click past the jump to see the full ad! [Gawker]
