We always knew Adele had a set of pipes, but it turns out she’s got dancing feet, too. The pregnant songstress was recently seen at a line-dancing class with some of her friends. Adele apparently picked up the country dance style after traveling throughout the U.S. and liked it so much she brought a line-dancing CD to bring home. That’s pretty ballsy for a seven-months-pregnant woman. But hey, whatever! She’s getting her exercise in. [The Sun UK]
Adele isn’t the only celeb doing something kinda-weird while she’s knocked up. Check out all the preggo celebs in Hollywood who had their pickles and ice cream on speed dial!
When the temperature hits 90 degrees, all the ladies wear shorrrrrt shorrrrrrts.

How much do I love Stevie Nicks? This is a woman who literally shot cocaine up her butt and also sings like an angel. We loved her as part of Fleetwood Mac and we loved her solo. And we especially loved it when she was on “Oprah” not too long ago. Oprah, plagued by all the debaucherous things Stevie had done in the past, couldn’t even deal with asking her anything real, so she was all, “STEVIE! How do you KEEP! Your SKIN! Looking so FRESH!” In Oprah voice, you know.
We are so stoked that Fleetwood Mac is getting the band back together, especially since we were like, five years old the last time they released an album. Plus, Stevie has to die for style, though we’d hardly recommend you copy her look line for line. Come on, do you really want to look like a consumptive rat catcher lady dressed by a flock of whitedoves?
Instead, we suggest you update your Stevie-worshiping look with one of these fine frocks. Keep reading »
Some people are good at relationships. They meet potential partners with effortless ease wherever they go—on the subway, in the elevator at work, on line at the grocery store. They strike up conversations with men in bars, get fixed up by friends, and actually enjoy (ugh!) online dating. The people they encounter are emotionally available and commitment-ready, and they sail smoothly into monogamous relationships as if on command.
And then there are those who are more relationship challenged. Mystified by how to transform a Match.com profile into a boyfriend or how to meet a guy who’s not a total commitmentphobe. You probably feel like you’re trapped in an ’80s movie, forever destined to be on the outside, looking longingly in at all the couples with their hands resting in the back pocket of each other’s acid-washed jeans. How do they do it? you wonder, as you force yourself to “put yourself out there” yet again, gritting your teeth through another brutal bout of online dating.
If the relationship you so desperately desire keeps remaining just out of reach, there may be internal blocks to intimacy standing in your way. Rather than muscling through an endless barrage of bad dates and painful, short-lived relationships, take a time out to identify any deep-seated beliefs and counter-productive patterns that could be holding you back. Click through for barriers that might be sabotaging your relationship efforts—and how to kiss them goodbye.
