Where Is Patrick Bateman Now? Oh, Having A Threesome With Rihanna And Chris Brown

Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho, was very busy this weekend … thinking of ideas for a possible sequel to the book. So what is Patrick Bateman up to nowadays? Ellis took to Twitter to share his darkly frantic brainstorm. For starters, Patrick wants to have a threesome with Rihanna and Chris Brown. Disturbed? It gets so much more twisted. Hint: The Kardashian sisters, Kris Humphries, Chris Martin, Lindsay Lohan, David Beckham, Gavin Rossdale, and Katy Perry’s trainer are all involved. And lots and lots of murder. Oh, and if you didn’t figure it out from the original, Patrick Bateman is gay. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. I’m frightened. Social networking and celebrity culture would only make Patrick more psychotic, it seems. If that’s even possible. Click through to see Ellis’ highly disturbing Patrick Batemen musings. [Buzzfeed]

Reminisce About Your Most Madonna Moments

Love her or hate her, it’s nearly impossible not to have an opinion about Madonna. Even though she’s an international icon, I think most women would attest to having had an intimate moment with the Material Girl. The first time I laid eyes on Madge was in her “Lucky Star” video on MTV. I was a six-year-old aspiring performer, so naturally, the first thing I did after seeing it was run to the bathroom and attempt to style my hair like hers, with too much hairspray and a floppy, black bow. And I’m sure I wasn’t the only little girl to do so. Most of us remember being influenced in some way by Madonna’s music, attitude or edgy style. But deeper than her multitude of memorable pop culture moments are the ways in which she has influenced us as women. In the new anthology Madonna & Me, nearly 40 female authors write about how their own Madonna moments changed their lives. This book is sure to be a compelling exploration on topics every woman can relate to from sex to spandex. Keep reading »

What are moms reading in the carpool lane these days? Well, it’s not The Help. It’s a new trilogy called Fifty Shades, it’s notorious for its sex scenes, and it seems like every mother with a blog account is raving about it…

“In case you’re wondering why every suburban housewife from Philadelphia to Connecticut has been sending all her calls straight to voice mail. Fifty. Freaking. Shades.” – Suburbabble

“I am not in the habit of reading erotica, but this trilogy makes it seem okay, even for Westchester county. ” – StaceyKnows

“There is life in this book, outside of the bedroom, and in fact, there are even tons of ‘vanilla moments’ to make the harder stuff go down easier for some of us who might be apprehensive with these kinds of ‘scenes’.” – Maryse.net

Even moms in NYC have caught the Fifty Shades bug. According to The New York Post:

“I found myself explaining what BDSM [bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism] was to some of the moms at Saturday morning basketball,” says power publicist Alison Brod, who hails “Fifty Shades” as “the new kabbalah for female bonding in this city.”

A raunchy book that mothers across the country can’t put down? This was too intriguing to pass up, so on Tuesday night I downloaded the book for myself (lord knows I wasn’t about to read a physical copy on the subway) for $7 on Amazon.com. Keep reading »
