Breaking News: I Am Pretty Sure This Is Not A Photo Of Lindsay Lohan’s Nipple

Lindsay Lohan topless

Aw, Internet, you’re so cute sometimes, like when Lindsay Lohan posts a topless photo to Instagram and you start seeing nipples where there are none. Adorable, right? Or is that delusional? Not sure. Blurred lines, there. Keep reading »

Who Will Buy The Insanely Priced Pieces From Jay Z’s Barneys Collection?

Jay Z with pieces from his Barneys collaboration

The seemingly innocuous topic of Jay Z’s limited edition holiday collection in collaboration with Barneys turned rife with controversy in the past few weeks after the upscale NYC department store was accused of two separate racial profiling incidents in the last month alone. Everyone from Jon Stewart to Andre Leon Talley criticized the hip-hop mogul’s decision to go forth with the high-profile partnership, even after he announced that 100 percent of the proceeds from the collection would go to his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation for low-income students.

Hi-Tech “Mood Sweater” Changes Color According To Your Emotions

Mood sweater

A few months ago at my parents’ house I was rifling through a drawer full of tokens of my adolescence (read: a bunch of old stuff my mom has failed to throw away) and happened to discover a mood ring. It was in the shape of a dolphin and I was beside myself with glee. “I’m totally bringing mood rings back,” I declared, to myself, but my style resurgence was short-lived: I got a rash, obviously, which is what always happens to me. (“Is that scabies?,” my boyfriend asked me in alarm last week as I stretched my bare legs across his bed. Nope, I had just shaved that morning, that’s all.) Keep reading »

Julia Roberts Says Jennifer Lawrence Is Too “Cool” To Assume America’s Sweetheart Title

Do You Agree With Julia?

There’s no questioning whether or not everybody loves Jennifer Lawrence, or whether or not she is deserving of this widespread love. She’s beautiful but in a way that seems of this earth, genuinely, unabashedly funny, compassionate, and eschews the starving-starlet mold — essentially, everything the America of 2013 wants out of a female celebrity. But is she America’s Sweetheart, and also who gives a fuck? Julia Roberts, OBVIOUSLY, the O.G. A.S. (no?) who had some thoughts to share regarding whether or not she would extend to Jennifer the invitation to her clurb. Vanity Fair said of Julia’s reaction, “Seriously, this 67-second video should be nominated for its own Oscar for best Live-Action Short. American Studies majors will no doubt be studying it for decades to come.” It’s true. That’s some pretty subtle shade you’ve got there, Julia … [Celebitchy]

Poor Patch The Puppy Has To Go Around Looking Like Adolf Hitler All The Time

Patch the puppy looks just like Hitler

Not cute: Hitler. So cute it should be condemned: Patch, the puppy who bears an irrefutable, if unfortunate, resemblance to the Nazi leader. With his black “mustache” and a large dark area covering the left side of his head, the French bulldog/shih tzu cross could almost be mistaken for the dictator, if he weren’t a member of a different species and also not a war criminal. Regrettably, Patch’s mom/owner Lynda Whitehead reports that none of her family members call him by his real name anymore, instead referring to the innocent pup as “Adolf” or “Hitler.” Noooooo! That said, Patch likely doesn’t have much of a say in the matter … though we imagine, equipped with fully functioning vocal cords, he’d be an extraordinarily charismatic speaker. Keep doing what you’re doing, Patch. Just don’t get any grandiose ideas about racial hegemony. [Telegraph]

Illinois Family Reunites With Beloved Dog Thought Lost In Devastating Tornado

Brace yourselves, fellow animal lovers (dogs over humans any day, am I right?), because this story isn’t about to go down without a tear in the house. Jon Byler Dann, his wife, and their four young children took to their basement for refuge from the deadly storm that annihilated their hometown of Washington, Ill. The Byler Dann family was safe — but one crucial member of the pack was nowhere to be found. Keep reading »

Telling Your Girlfriend You Cheated As A “Prank” Is A Bad Idea Any Way You Swing It

Who Cheated On Who?

“YouTube pranks” is one of my least favorite word combinations in all of the English language lexicon, so I couldn’t tell you why I deigned to watch this one. Roman Atwood is what people here on the Internet are apparently calling an “infamous” “YouTube” “prankster” who pulls “classic” “nasty” “pranks.” Keep reading »

“Holland’s Got Talent” Judge Makes A Few Too Many Cringeworthy Racist Jokes

Poor Xiao!

The first thing I did after watching this video was hit up Google with the question, “is holland racist.” Perhaps not the best-formed inquiry, as far as reading comprehension goes, but a valid question nonetheless. It does, indeed, seem that the Netherlands might have a history of being a little racist, considering hundreds just recently staged a march as a show of support for Black Pete, the charmingly named “Christmas sidekick” of good old significantly less racist Saint Nick. Still, this fails to excuse (along with every other racist, ever) “Holland’s Got Talent” judge and grown man wearing a T-shirt with a leather-sleeved blazer Gordon Heuckeroth, who spewed some unmistakably racist comments in the direction of a Chinese contestant during (what I presume is) this week’s episode.

Armani Mislabels Black Actress Alfre Woodard As Black Actor Idris Elba On Instagram

Armani mislabels actress Alfre Woodard as actor Idris Elba

Do you know this actress’s name? It’s not a big deal if you don’t. I didn’t, until I used Google, which is what you do when you don’t know a famous person’s name and you’re going to write about them on the Internet, right? I can tell you who she isn’t, though, and that’s actor Idris Elba. I am absolutely certain of this. Armani’s social media people, on the other hand? Not so much. Keep reading »

Elle Magazine Promotes “North Korea Chic” As Hot Fall Trend

Elle magazine includes "North Korea Chic" as fashion trend

For the most part, Elle‘s list of “top fashion trends” for this autumn reads like any other: nautical, punk, pastels, Victorian, and Wednesday Addams are all fairly standard fodder for style inspiration. But one of these things is not like the others, and that thing would be “North Korea Chic,” which creative director Joe Zee is attempting to laud as “the next big thing.” Keep reading »
