Watch This: Carrie Underwood’s Epic Cover Of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”

Carrie Underwood Covers Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You
Daaaaaamn, Girl!

Last night, I went to a benefit concert called, “All For The Hall,” which was put together by Vince Gill and Keith Urban to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame. Reba was there, and Brett Eldredge, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack, Ronnie Milsap, Deana Carter, David Nail, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Brantley Gilbert (who, I’m sorry, gives me intense douche chills). It was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to, and all the performances were killer (except for Brantley’s, mostly because I was distracted by his gratuitous wallet chains), but the best moment happened, as it usually does, when Carrie Underwood walked out on stage. “I will not be doing this song any justice, but I’m doing it anyway,” she said lied, before belting out a shockingly beautiful cover of Dolly Parton’s classic, “I Will Always Love You,” backed by Vince and Keith. I posted on Instagram last night that I was stuck permanently in the swooooon position after witnessing this performance, and it’s true. I woke up still swooning. Caution: watching this video might cause you to swoon uncontrollably too. But man, so worth it. [Popdust]

Watch This: An Infomercial For The Useless Sports Bra Every Big-Boobed Woman Has Already Tried

2 Sports Bras Infomercial
2 Times The Support + 3 Times The Armpit Cleavage!
Found: My New Fave Sports Bra
Moving Comfort Fiona Bra
A cute, comfortable sports bra for DD cups?? Yes, it exists! Read More »

Most women with big boobs have tried it at one point or another: you get fed up with the complete uselessness of your sports bra, so you just put on another one. And sometimes a third. I remember commiserating with the other big-busted girls in the junior high locker room as we all squeezed our boobs into layers and layers of stretchy sports bras. One girl routinely wore FOUR at a time, with a fifth deployed on mile days. My neck and shoulders ache just thinking about it. But hey, desperate times call for desperate measures! This hilarious infomercial imagines the desperate double-bra method as a feasible product, and the women modeling it are understandably unimpressed. [College Humor]

Big News, Big Guys: There’s Finally A Pair Of Slim-Fit Jeans With Room To Accommodate Your Penis & Balls

Slimbs Slim-Fit Jeans
No More Moose-Knuckle!

A couple weeks ago we introduced you to the “anti-thigh gap jeans,” made specifically for those of us who have a little more thigh meat than traditional skinny jeans allow for. Today, we’d like to introduce you to another specialty fit denim innovation, but this one is for men who have a little extra man meat. The jeans are called Slimbs. Their mantra? “Slim fit jeans that aren’t a pain to your manhood.” While that tagline (not to mention the screenshot of their promotional video) might make you laugh, the jeans are far from gimmicky. Slimbs are high quality (each pair even comes with a guaranteed repair service), American-made, ethically manufactured, stylish, and affordable. No wonder they’ve almost doubled their fundraising goal on Kickstarter already. Check out the video above for more info, and let your balls breathe a sigh of relief for the roomier digs they’ll be enjoying soon. [Kickstarter]

Brooke Birmingham, author of the health and fitness blog, “Brooke: Not On A Diet,” was able to lose over 170 pounds without surgery or fad diets. She dropped the weight the good ol’ fashioned way: cutting out processed food, counting calories, and exercising more. The process took her four years of hard work (“I literally worked my ass off,” she says of meeting her goal weight in May of 2013), so she was understandably thrilled when she was contacted by Shape magazine editors who wanted to feature her in their “Success Stories” section. After doing a phone interview and sending over a photo of herself in a bikini for the “after” photo (shown above), Brooke couldn’t wait to see her story in print. But then an editor of Shape emailed her, saying there was a problem: if she wanted to be featured in the magazine, she would need to put a shirt on.

Life After Dating: The Inescapable Logistics Of Love

The Inescapable Logisitics Of Love

“I just assumed that when I met my soulmate and fell in love, all of these annoying day to day things would fall into place.”

I’m on the phone with a friend of mine, who’s a couple years into a relationship that is overflowing with romance. Their pairing has everything: the meet-cute; the deep, spiritual connection; the sizzling sexual chemistry; the stimulating intellectual back and forth; the aligned life goals and values; the mutual belief that the other is the most amazing human to ever grace the Earth.

They’ve committed to a life together, they own a house, they’re very, very happy. There’s just one problem: they can’t for the life of them figure out how to plan their weekends. Her go-with-the-flow attitude clashes with his get-shit-done vibe and all of a sudden their dreamy love connection is imploding into a cranky spat about how long they’re going to spend at Home Depot and who hit the snooze button for the fourth time.

“I know we’re meant to be together,” she says, “so why can’t we figure this out?” Keep reading »

When I saw the headline “Authorities Seize Man’s Electronic Equipment For Blasting Celine Dion,” my first thought was, Well, good! Anyone who insults Celine Dion’s flawless voice or enduring love ballads SHOULD have their stereos confiscated and/or burned in front of them! If they don’t like Celine, they shouldn’t be able to enjoy the privilege of listening to ANY music! 

Because the only time I am in favor of a police state is when it involves defending the honor of Celine Dion.

But alas, my interpretation of the word “blasting” was tragically wrong. This man didn’t have his stereo taken away for insulting Celine Dion, he had his stereo taken away for playing Celine Dion songs loudly, over and over and over… Keep reading »
