Leave it to George Clooney to look charming and dapper while his hands are tied behind his back. The actor was arrested for civil disobedience after protesting the escalating humanitarian crisis in the Sudan at the Sudan Embassy in Washington. I can’t wait to see his mugshot! [Washington Post]
Nicki Minaj has rocked some pretty imaginative looks, none of which I would commit to wearing myself, so this will be a first: I’m kind of loving the long, crazy-voluminous light green hair she’s sporting in the video for her latest song, “Starships.” My Little Pony-inspired hair has been literally everywhere for the past year or so, some interpretations more successful than others, so her neon hue isn’t that much of a departure from what’s on trend. This is such an eye-catching look, I can’t help but picture it on my head. With my pale skin, it would probably send me straight into Beetlejuice territory, but maybe it’s worth a shot… What do you think? Have I lost my mind, or is this something about this verdigris strangely appealing? [Just Jared]
“I think we’ve gotten to the point in our culture where we’re all sex addicts, literally. We have equated happiness in life with as many orgasms as you can possibly pack in, regardless of where it is that you deposit your love interest … It’s just dehumanizing. And I have to honestly say, I think this era of porn is at least partially responsible for it. Where is the anticipation and the personalization? It’s all pre-fab now. You have these images coming at you unannounced and unsolicited. It just gets to be so plastic and phony to me. Maybe men respond to that. But is it really better than an experience with a real life girl that he cares about? It’s an exploitation of the poor male’s libidos. Poor babies, they can’t control themselves … I just imagine them sitting in front of their computers, completely annihilated. They haven’t done anything, they don’t have a job, they barely have ambition anymore. And it makes for laziness and a not very good sex partner. Do they know how to negotiate something that isn’t pre-fab and injected directly into their brain? … I don’t care if I’m becoming one of those old fogies who says, ‘Back in my day we didn’t have to hear about sex all the time.’ Can you imagine? My fantasies were all made up on my own. They’re ruining us with all the explanations and the graphicness. Nobody remembers what it’s like to be left to form your own ideas about what’s erotic and sexual. We’re not allowed any individuality. I thought that was the fun of the whole thing. It’s my fantasy. I didn’t pick it off the Internet somewhere. It’s my fantasy.”
– Raquel Welch shares her thoughts on porn in Men’s Health. There’s a lot to respond to here. I agree with what she’s saying about erotic individuality. But that’s where I stop agreeing with her. We’re all sex addicts? Really? Keep reading »
Okay, so this dress, with just a bunch of side cut outs would have been great. Or just a bunch of weird ruffles on the bottom. Sure, I’d abide. But the combo of the two might just qualify for over-complicating what could be a very pretty garment. Either way, she’s a pretty bangin’ MILF, wouldn’t you say? And we’ll definitely be watching when “Mad Men” returns to AMC on March 25, stupid dress or no.
I know this has been on your mind, but no need to worry, people. I would just like to confirm that Jessica Simpson is moisturizing regularly during her pregnancy. She shared her hydration habits with People just this morning. “My entire body is changing every single day … I make it a point to moisturize as much as possible,” she revealed. Phew. OK. I feel much better now. I was worried that stretch marks were going to destroy her. You may carry on being depressed about the bunny that was squished to death. [People]
