This past weekend, I watched the classic ’90s movie “Empire Records,” which follows a day in the life of an independent record store and all of its employees (indie records stores, remember those?). Over the course of the film, one girl (Robin Tunney from “The Craft”) tries to commit suicide and shaves her head, another (Renee Zellweger) sleeps with a washed up rock star, and yet another gets into Harvard and falls in love with her best friend (yep, Liv). Also, nobody seems to actually work.

My friends and I were really coveting Liv’s femme take on grunge, so I thought I’d see if I could copy her iconic look. Check it out after the jump.

10 Things I’ve Learned From Watching “Baggage” (Which Is A Real Show On GSN)

This morning, I was delighted to find out that “Baggage,” a show referenced on last night’s episode of “Girls” which I assumed to be fake because it sounds so amazingly ridiculous, is, in fact, A REAL THING. Here’s how the Jerry Springer-hosted show works, according to Wikipedia:

“Baggage” gives three contestants the chance to win the eye of a prospective date. The contestants carry three suitcases onstage, a small, medium, and large one. Each suitcase contains an embarrassing, unique, or weird proposition the contestant may have; for example, bad habits (e.g. “I share a bed with my grandmother”), strange relationship preferences (“My partner must dress up as Santa Claus”), issues with one’s past (“I’m an outlaw in Mexico”), and strange hobbies (“I play video games 30 hours a week”). These cases will represent the “baggage” to which they will confess and defend. The bigger the suitcase, the bigger the secret or “baggage” is. Once the three contestants are pared down to one, the potential dater must admit to a fault of his or her own.

Naturally, I have spent the last three hours watching it on GSN’s YouTube channel and it is as delightfully trashy as Shoshanna and Wikipedia described. Here are 10 things I’ve learned (so far!) from watching it… Keep reading »

File this under really strange ideas for television shows: E! is developing a scripted drama inspired by the book Dorothy and The Wizard of Oz. “Dorothy” (as it’s currently titled) will follow a girl from Kansas City who falls in love with a man and moves with him to Emerald City to work at his Emerald Hotel. And we need another version of “The Wizard of Oz” because … ? An animated film, “Dorothy of Oz,” is on the way, as is Michelle Williams’ and James Franco’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful.” The original “Wizard of Oz” is holding up quite nicely. And “Return to Oz,” the 1985 sequel starring Fairuza Balk, is a classic as far as I’m concerned. So, I think we’re all set on the “Wizard of Oz” front. Obviously, the only way this Wiz TV show can be good is if they cast Kim Kardashian as Dorothy and Kanye West as The Wizard. [EW]

Courtney Stodden Releases New Single “Reality”

Teen bride Courtney Stodden is still trying to be a pop star — and has a new single to prove it. The 17-year-old, who’s married to 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison, released a new song today called ”Reality.”

With lyrics like “the moment our eyes met, my heart skipped a beat” and “I wanna dance tonight, till we lose control,” Stodden lays the sex appeal on thick … through some serious auto-tune. Read more…

“Why do people ask me to lose swear words? Do people ask Eminem to lose swear words? Do they ask Lil Wayne to lose swear words? Nobody stops them and says ‘Would you stop swearing… for the children, please?’ … I don’t want children cursing. I’m very strict on my nieces and my little brother. They have to listen to clean versions of music. Even my music. … Don’t you think it’s strange, though? I used to see Eminem in concert and people were bringing their little brother or whatever. Nobody stops them and says [she adopts a posh English accent], ‘Would you stop swearing, Eminem, for loads of money?’ I don’t get it, I don’t get it.” 

– Nicki Minaj did a great interview with the UK Guardian and talked about lots of feminist-y themes, including the scrutiny she’s put under for being a woman who sings some really “dirty” lyrics. Nicki talks about how she knows those two little girls on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” — Sophia Grace and Rosie — who rap clean versions of her songs have brought her a lot of attention, but that doesn’t make her kids’ singer. I love this woman. [Guardian UK]

Last night’s episode of “Girls” was, I think, the strongest of the series so far, with — SPOILER ALERT! — Hannah (Lena Dunham) both finding out that she has HPV and that her ex-boyfriend is gay. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) was tempted by Jorma Taccone’s artist character, Booth Jonathan, who told her,  “I want you to know, the first time I fuck you, I might scare you a little, because I’m a man, and I know how to do things.” One of my favorite scenes, however, is this one, in which Shoshanna (Zosie Mamet) and Hannah watched a show called “Baggage” on the Game Show Network — make this show a reality GSN! apparently this show IS a reality – and shared their own.
