Every morning I peruse the daily newspapers and online blogs to see what has been going on in the world while I slept. Sometimes I am waking up refreshed from a good nights sleep, sometimes I am a zombie and every blue moon I am hungover. The morning after a night out is always a bit rough, but my crankiness increases exponentially when I see millions of hot celebs pictured frolicking about NYC the night before. WTF? I was out last night. I was somewhere cool and trendy, so where was Rihana? Where was Robert Pattinson? Gossip Girl is filming everywhere around the city and yet nary a sighting. Apparently every hot celebs is currently filming or partying in NYC, so why haven’t I seen any? Celebs eat at restaurants, walk down the street and shop at boutiques. So why aren’t they doing any of these near me? Keep reading »
Kerry Washington is back in the edgy role of Marybeth, a transgender prostitute with a drug addiction in “Life is Hot in Cracktown.” Based on the book by Buddy Giovinazzo, who also wrote and directed the film, “Cracktown” is a haunting tale of intertwining stories surrounding the crack-cocaine epidemic.
The Bronx, N.Y., native is known as one of the most respected actresses of this generation for her work in films like “Ray,” “The Last King of Scotland” and Spike Lee’s “She Hate Me.” Washington has never been afraid of provocative roles and says, “This film allows us to have a window into a world that we normally wouldn’t pay attention to,” referring to “Cracktown.”
Here, Kerry Washington sounds off on “Cracktown,” playing a transgender woman, homophobia and much more. Continue reading…

Just in time for the 4th of July, Gwyneth Paltrow has voiced her disdain for America…again. This time the GOOP master has Latin lust for Spain, saying, “It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it’s from 500 B.C., it’s incredible.” Yeah sure Gwynnie, Spain’s old, but in terms of years I think it should be quality over quantity. It’s totally fair to judge a country based on how long they hold onto the mullet, which in Spain’s case is at least two decades too long. Keep reading »
Michael Jackson‘s costumes for his upcoming tour look like they would have been a veritable fashion show of MJ classics (not to rub salt in the wound, or anything). Described as an “over the top wardrobe,” costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush worked with Jackson who wanted to take things to a new, higher level. This resulted in a collection that brought back to life Jackson’s golden days with his flashy fingerless glove, military jackets, a Billie Jean jacket adorned with over seven pounds of Swarovski crystals. The highlight of the styles, however, has to be the redesigned “Thriller” jacket outfitted with fiber-optic lights that would flash in time with the music. While the costume designers say that Michael was enthusiastic in his last days—performing routines with huge energy, and eager to get the show started—his measurements show that he was incredibly thin with a 27 3/4-inch waist. Regardless, pictures and memories like these will allow Michael’s show to go on. [People] Keep reading »
Maxi Mounds, who hails from Long Island, NY, holds the Guinness World Record for “World’s Largest Augmented Breasts.” It took four surgeries for Maxi to get to her 61MMM size, according to Spike TV’s “MANswers.” She says she started “dancing” to pay for school but decided she liked being naked more than studying. She also claims that her measurements are 156MMM-26-36, but we’ll go with the more conservative breast measurement because we can’t possibly see how Maxi would be able to stand upright with 156MMM breasts. Maxi gets major attention on the web, TV, and in strip clubs, but she says the one downside to such ginormous boobs is that she can no longer sleep on her stomach. Bummer. Keep reading »
Yesterday we told you about The Gap’s new intern, Kanye West, who joins a long line of celebrities (temporarily) giving up their high-paying day jobs in order to learn something new from the ground up. All of this got me thinking about which celebs we’d like to have intern at The Frisky and what tasks we would give them. After the jump, some of our writers and editors dish on who they’d like to fetch coffee and, uh, other stuff. Keep reading »
Earlier this week, Lady Gaga took time out from pantslessness and boob explosions to volunteer at AIDS charity Body Positive North West in Manchester, England. “I want to make it fashionable to have safe sex,” she said. “You must be safe. You can have sex with hundreds of people with a condom on and get nothing. If you have sex without one, then you could get all sorts of problems.” Hey, if the singer can create a trend out of neglecting to put clothes on the lower half of her body, maybe she can get people to put on condoms.
While she was at the AIDS center, she helped paint the above mural that included her likeness. The hair-bow is accurate, but why is she wearing leggings? [The Advocate] Keep reading »
In April, Brad Pitt taped a commercial with a sumo wrestler, and now it’s out. Brad plays the assistant to a sumo wrestler in this Spike Jonze-directed ad for Japanese SoftBank, a telecommunications company. We think the commercial is probably trying to say, “We’ll support you no matter what, even if we have to do the seemingly impossible, like carry a 300+ pound man when his flip-flop breaks.” Keep reading »
