Teen sorta sensation Aaron Carter, perhaps best known as little brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, is now 25 and touring the country on his “After Party” tour. On a stop in Boston, Carter claims he was jumped and beaten by four men, and he posted a couple Instagram photos of himself looking busted to prove it. What sparked the altercation? According to Carter, it was a classic boy band turf war. Seriously. Keep reading »
If you don’t live in Texas, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of House Bill 60 (HB60) and Senate Bill 5 (SB5), a pair of rabid anti-abortion measures that aim to effectively outlaw abortion across the entire state. I’ve followed the HB60/SB5 saga through the articles and Twitter updates of Texas pro-choice activists (and Frisky contributors!) Andrea Grimes, Dan Solomon, and Jessica Luther. These three are part of a group of hundreds of citizen activists who have set up camp at the State Capitol to demand access to reproductive healthcare, and they’ve been working their asses off to stop these bills.

As any air traveler knows, there are few places more disgusting than an airplane bathroom a few hours into a long flight. But an airplane bathroom with no toilet paper on a 10-hour flight? That’s even worse. Passengers on a recent United Airlines (of course) flight from San Francisco to London got to experience that exact little surprise firsthand when the crew forgot to stock up on TP before departing. Faced with the choice of making an unscheduled stop to replenish their supply or arriving in London on time, the flight crew decided to fly on. Passengers were provided with a stack of cocktail napkins to use instead. “If I’m paying for a ticket, that should include the price of toilet paper, I would think,” one passenger told ABC News. Yes, you would think, but I guess when it comes to United, which is ranked dead last in customer satisfaction, you shouldn’t take anything for granted. Might want to pop a roll of TP into your carry-on next time, just in case. [Huffington Post]

This morning I read that Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift went out to dinner together at Chili’s, a revelation which instantly made me like both of them so much more. Just the idea of two hugely famous multimillionaires splitting a sizzling bacon ranch quesadilla in a corner booth and gossiping about Justin Bieber fills me with delight. I’m not sure if it’s residual Chili’s adoration or what, but I’m also really digging this boho outfit Selena was spotted in recently. Is it a little over the top? Sure. Is the sight of her wearing leather boots in LA making my feet sweat profusely? Definitely. It’s a lot of look, but I think she’s pulling it off. Selena, next time I hit up Chili’s, I will raise my El Niño® Margarita to your fearless fashion sense. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
A lot of the people I know who are into pho — which, for the uninitiated, is a Vietnamese noodle soup — are, like, really into pho. They eat it four or five times a week, are constantly on the hunt for the best hole-in-the-wall pho restaurant, and love nothing more than correcting people who pronounce it wrong. I mean, I love me some pho, but I have a hard time keeping up with them. For my pho-obsessed friends, the new pho-flavored cocktail dreamed up by a Philadelphia bartender might be the holy grail of alcoholic beverages. It’s made with gin or vodka, lime juice, a blend of pho broth seasonings (including charred ginger, onions, and star anise), basil, mint, and cilantro, and garnished with pickled bean sprouts and Sriracha sauce. For non-pho fanatics, though, I’m guessing this cocktail will be something of an acquired taste. Which camp are you in? [Neatorama]
