The Family Dance Parties Of Kate Hudson’s Childhood Had A Super Awkward Soundtrack

“Our whole family danced our butts off to ['I Want Your Sex'] in the living room. No idea what it meant! We just knew it made us move.”

Kate Hudson shared the “soundtrack of her life” in this month’s InStyle, and the song she cited as the defining jam of her childhood was none other than the kid-friendly George Michael hit, “I Want Your Sex.” The image of Kurt, Goldie and the kids rocking out and singing along to lyrics like, “What’s your definition of dirty, baby?” is cracking me up. Ah, the ignorant bliss of being 8 years-old. [InStyle]

Unlikely Doppelgangers Of The Day: Iggy Azalea & Young Diane Sawyer

Ready for your mid-week mindfuck? Check out this side-by-side of Iggy Azalea and young Diane Sawyer. Twinsies! Is Iggy Diane’s long lost daughter? Is Diane a time-traveling beauty queen rapper? Will Iggy grow up to be an internationally revered news anchor? Who knows, but let’s get one thing straight right now: Iggy wishes she had half Diane’s swagger. [via HeatherMostlyGretel]

My best friend has been on a bit of a homesteading, make-everything-yourself kick lately. Every time I call her and ask what she’s doing, she replies with, “Oh, just whipping up a fresh batch of nut butter!” or “Melting some coconut oil to make my own deodorant. Want me to make some for you?” So when she came to visit a few weeks ago and said, “Let’s make our own makeup,” I was like, “Umm…yes please!” We put on some music, looked up some DIY makeup recipes, and in less than an hour, we’d both mixed up a batch of our very own powder foundation, using ingredients I already had in my kitchen. Now I’m addicted to DIY makeup, and excited to try to make my own blush and bronzer next. Here are 7 reasons why I’d encourage you to give DIY makeup a try:

My favorite thing about country music is the focus on storytelling. Country songs are full of vivid characters and tales of heartbreak and hi-jinks. I think this is why, sometimes when I’m listening to country, I start feeling like a different character myself. The funny thing is, it’s not necessarily the character featured in the song I’m listening to, it’s a character within myself that can only be awakened by a certain combination of lyrics and banjo chords. For example, the other day when my boyfriend Nick got home from work, I said hi and then immediately began railing against “big city fat cats” who don’t understand the values of the REAL America. Nick shook his head and said, “You’ve been listening to ‘Flyover States’ again, haven’t you?” Oops. Guilty. Here is a rundown of my five main country music alter egos and the songs that trigger them… Keep reading »

New Item For Your Bucket List: An Ocean Massage

Floating in a calm ocean is super relaxing. And getting a massage is blissful. But what if you could do both at the SAME TIME?? Now you can, thanks to the One & Only Resort on Australia’s Hayman Island. The resort opens in July, and One & Only’s spa is offering a pretty drool-worthy incentive to book some time there: “Ocean Dreaming Massages,” AKA massages performed on the freakin’ ocean. Here’s the description from the spa website: Keep reading »

Scientists Gone Wild: Chemistry Professor Ejected From Classical Music Concert For Crowd Surfing

It’s happened to the best of us: you’re at a symphony concert, enjoying a rousing piece of classical music, when all of a sudden you are overcome with the urge to ROCK. Such was the case of Dr. David Glowacki, an internationally renowned chemistry professor who attended a symphony performance of Handel’s Messiah at a small theater in Bristol, England. Apparently Glowacki was so moved during the Hallelujah Chorus portion of the evening that he started fist pumping, yelled “Woo!!!” repeatedly, and then attempted to crowd surf. He was promptly ejected from the venue by the concert organizers, who accused him of being “very overexcited.” Glowacki’s response? “Classical music, trying to seem cool and less stuffy, reeks of some sort of fossilised art form undergoing a midlife crisis.” In layman’s terms, I think that translates to something along the lines of, “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT?!” [Metro]

Watch This Wasted Luke Bryan Fan Lose A Wrestling Match … Against Himself

Drunk Luke Bryan Fan
This is a TKO if I've ever seen one.

So, Luke Bryan had a concert in Pittsburgh this past week, and the pre-show tailgate party got a little out of hand. And by “a little out of hand” I mean everyone got craaaaazy wasted, a ton of fights broke out, and the entire area was left so trashed it looked like an F-5 tornado blew through a landfill. The one upside to all this country-fueled insanity? A video of one of those super drunk fans getting into a knock down, drag out fight with the ground. Someone had the brilliant idea to add a WWE voiceover to the footage, and the result is painfully perfect. [The Daily Dot]

Life After Dating: The Beauty Of Doing Your Own Thing

Life After Dating: The Beauty Of Doing Your Own Thing

Here’s a situation most people in long-term relationships have experienced at one time or another:

You really want to do something. Say, a challenging hike that ends at an idyllic waterfall. And you really want your partner to do it with you, because you love spending time with them, don’t want to do it alone, and, hello, idyllic waterfalls are fucking romantic.

But your partner doesn’t want to do it. Their reason could be anything: they’re busy, they’re tired, they hate hiking, they have a phobia of romantic waterfalls — the fact is, they don’t want to do it, and they’re not budging.

I’ve been on both sides of this equation many times. It’s never easy, and whenever nagging enters into the equation (guilty!), it creates a perfect storm for conflict — not to mention resentment on both sides. Finding a balance between quality couple time and independence can be tough, but in this case, I’ve found that there is nothing more empowering and ultimately better for your relationship than learning to do your own thing.

The Pros & Cons Of Different Travel Partners

I believe that traveling is always a good experience (even a terrible vacation will give you stories to tell for years to come), but who you choose to travel with will make a big difference in what kind of experience you have. A cross-country road trip with your three best friends will be very different than a cross-country road trip with your dad, for example. And that dream trip to the Great Wall of China? Should you go it alone or take your boyfriend along? Click through to find out the pros and cons of different travel partners, and please share your own travel partner preferences in the comments!

Guy Pastes Himself Into Britney Spears’ “Work B**ch” Video, Awesomeness Ensues

Guy Inserts Himself Into Britney Spears' "Work Bitch" Video
Go Call The Police! Go Call The Gov'nah!

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new role model, Gal Volinez. Gal decided that Britney Spears’ iconic “Work B**ch” music video could use a little less Britney and a little more … him. So he recreated all of Britney’s trademark writhing and neck-snapping dance moves, showed a little midriff, and pasted his performance right over the top of the video. The result is strangely compelling, and way more erotic than the original. Sorry, Brit. [YouTube]
