Dear Jared Leto,
J-Rod, let’s talk. I’ve followed your career and your cheekbones and your 1000-yard stare ever since you were a flannel-wearing, illiterate teenage wastrel on “My So Called Life.” Your turn as Jordan Catalano — (“Y Kant Jordan Read?,” never forget) — the frustratingly vacant love interest of Angela Chase (remember how darling Claire Danes was before Latisse?) broke a million teenage girl hearts. Which is why I find it especially egregious that you’ve grown up to be the Jared Leto that you are today. The douche-y, guyliner-wearing Jared Leto that fronts MTV2 mainstay band 30 Seconds to Mars and insists on dressing like an utter and complete tool.

Gather round children and I shall share with you the secrets of the world’s laziest cook. That’s me! I come from a short line of lazy chefs. Namely, my mom, whose favorite prepared meal is Fritos and onion dip and my dad who makes a mean cereal and milk. Needless to say, I am self-taught in the kitchen. My cooking limitations became more troublesome after a series of breakups with boyfriends whom I persuaded to cook for me left all alone to fend for myself for every meal. I had no option but to learn how to become a kick ass lazy chef. I usually end up dining out or getting take out — ideal for the eater willing to exert minimal effort. On the rare occasion that I feel moved to cook (I do possess a preternatural feel for building flavor) or I am forced to prepare a meal (like if I just got sex or I’m trying to!), I have a few go-to meals that I can easily prepare using my one pan, three bowls, set of dull steak knives, and the other pathetic contents of my kitchen. Allow yourself to be dazzled by my never-before-seen collection of lazy people recipes. Bon appetit, lazy peeps!
Happy Monday! It’s gloriously sunny out and actually kind of warm — and tomorrow is supposed to be nearly 70 degrees. Oh, global warming, how hard you make it for me to hate you sometimes… Click onward to see what we’re wearing today!
This past weekend, the fashion world mourned the loss of one of its icons, Loulou de la Falaise, the inimitable model and muse to designer Yves St. Laurent and an irrepressible figure in the couture community. We’ve collected images of de la Falaise to show you what St. Laurent and so many others saw in her life and style.
This weekend, America’s most renowned artists … okay, who am I kidding? This weekend, a few of America’s most palatable pop stars, like Selena Gomez and Katy Perry, flew ‘cross the pond to meet up with their Euro brethren at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Lady Gaga shoved her crotch at the crowd, Adam Lambert stood in for my beloved Freddie Mercury during Queen’s performance (I am deeply unhappy about this), and a whole mess of people dressed like fools. There were some sartorial standouts too — click through this slideshow to see the good, the bad, and the WTF on the MTV EMAs red carpet!
In a last ditch effort to make their marriage seem like it was a real thing, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are seeking counseling. Sources say their union is “up in the air” after Kim flew to Minnesota to meet with Kris’ pastor, Joel Johnson. After a four-hour come-to-Jesus session (literally), they admitted that there is a lot wrong with their relationship. How brave of them, but aren’t these the kind of counseling sessions that usually take place before the wedding? Either way, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall, if, in fact, this session actually happened. We won’t be holding our breath for a reconciliation. If Kim and Kris are representative of the rest of celebrity couples who’ve sought counseling, this is just the beginning of the end for them. Or the end of the end, considering they’ve already split.

Last week, in honor of our mission to “Get Bitchin’ In The Kitchen,” I asked you to send me your favorite recipes for a forthcoming slideshow. Well, I got so many recipes that one slideshow just ain’t gonna suffice. Instead, I’m going to post the recipes over the course of the week — and I’m still accepting more, so send ‘em (to firstname.lastname@example.org) if you got ‘em! First up, three yummy pasta recipes from readers Sarah, Allison, and Megan!
This weekend, there was a party in LA! I was not invited! Tons of pretty celebs were there wearing fancy dresses and, again, I was not invited! The party in question was the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art + Film Gala, which was raising money to make film a more important part of the museum’s offerings. (It’s Hollywood, they want film to be the focus of everything, amiright?!) Upon looking at the fancy dresses these famous ladies were wearing, I realize I would have had nothing to wear anyway, so I’m glad I made other plans, i.e. stayed home and made spaghetti and painted my nails. Thank you for not inviting me, fancy Hollywood event planners. I would have felt guilty saying no. Anyway, click through this slideshow to see what Reese Witherspoon, Kate Bosworth, Evan Rachel Wood, Amy Poehler, Kate Hudson, and a whole bunch of other fancy people wore instead.
Sometimes watching a good food movie is just as satisfying as the food itself. Living vicariously through the golden ticket winners in “Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory” has been my favorite dessert substitute since I was a chubby eight-year-old with a restricted sugar intake. “They get to eat all the candy they want!!” I would squeal as the lucky children ate their way through a warehouse of candy. I just couldn’t believe their good fortune. Side note: When is someone going to invent lick-able wall paper? I want it now! Click through to see more food films that satisfy our hunger.
A recent study found that only 7 percent of women love their hair, yet we spend a ton of time grooming it. But wouldn’t life just be easier if we covered up with a hat on the bad hair days? I’m not talking about a knit beanie or baseball cap. I mean a fabulous chapeau — one that will show off your style while also being chic enough to wear indoors! Here are 11 of our favorite, finger-snap-approved hats for bad hair days … or every day, really.
