I saw “Rock Of Ages” when it was a tiny Off Broadway show. And then I saw it (a few times) in its bigger Broadway incarnation. I can safely say it was one of the most thoroughly entertaining musicals of all time. And by gosh, now it’s a huge Hollywood movie starring Tom Cruise as aging rock star Stacee Jaxx and Alec Baldwin as kooky club owner Dennis Dupree. Oh, and  Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Malin Ackerman, Paul Giamatti and Mary J. Blige grace the screen. So yeah, just a couple of stars in this flick. For those of you who haven’t seen the play as many times as I have, it’s about a couple of small town kids with big Hollywood dreams. The story is peppered with your favorite ’80s power ballads. I don’t want to give anything away, but get your Aqua Net out, put on your acid-wash jeans and prepare to throw your lighters in the air and sing along. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be event to remember. June 15, party people!

Frisky Q&A: Dan Savage Talks About “Savage U,” And The Prevalence Of Birth Control Use And Slut-Shaming On College Campuses

Tonight at 11 p.m. is the premiere of MTV’s “Savage U,” the half-hour series in which Dan Savage, sex advice columnist and founder of the It Gets Better Project, travels to 12 colleges and universities across the country and talks to young folks about sex and relationships. Given his experience — he’s been doling out straight-forward advice for 20 years — and hilariously honest approach, “Savage U” is sure to have a refreshing, entertaining, and most of all important impact on the way mainstream television addresses sex and dating. I was lucky enough to talk to Dan about the show, what most surprised him about the sex lives of college students, and whether he thinks he’ll still be dishing it out in another 20 years. Check out our Q&A after the jump! Keep reading »

Former Lucky Editor Launches New Blog

We’ve been big fans of Kim France ever since she worked at Sassy magazine and invented this thing called Kim France Pants, which were pants that were to be worn under skirts and such. She worked at Sassy before going on to start Lucky. And then weirdly — just like her former co-conspirator Jane Pratt’s mag Jane before her – Lucky was taken over by Brandon Holley. Now France is back with a new project, titled Girls of a Certain Age, a blog aimed at women in their 30s and 40s. “I’m 48, but I’m an immature 48,” said France. “There are people in this city who work in creative businesses whose interests are still very youth-ish. They like rock music, looking cool, but they are not kids anymore. They don’t, you know, respond to crotch high skirts on a style blog, no matter how cute they look.” Mazel tov! [WWD]

Whoa, we’re getting down to brass tacks here. In one corner, we have Noted Cro-Mag and All Around Conservative H.R. Puff-N-Stuff Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh’s been blathering over the airwaves for years, spewing his particular brand of toxic anti-lady crap. It’s Rush’s completely bombastic misogynistic drivel that’s taken him all the way from the Sweet 16 of our Real March Madness competition down to the Final Four. And what with the drama of Slut/Whoregate 2012, it’s really been a banner year for Ol’ Rush. Even so, does Rush have the stuff to take on what might be one of our most bonafide wackadoodle entries in the competition? I’m talking about Carrie, the cancer-stricken woman who appeared on “My Strange Addiction” to detail how she drinks her own pee in order to stave off the disease. There’s being a jerk and then there’s being absolutely off-the-rails delusional. So, you tell us — which is crazier? Vote now!

Lil’ Kitten Can’t Handle The Vacuum Cleaner

My cats are large, sluggish monsters. But despite their obvious girth and weight, they are absolutely terrified of the vacuum cleaner. They run and hide under the bed anytime it’s turned on. I find that hilarious, especially because my mom likes to tell me how she used to treat our old, skinny cat to vacuum baths. Clearly, this kitten is not having it either. The look of sheer, adorable terror on this cat’s face kind of says it all. [The Stir]

Remixed Toy Ads Tell The Truth About Gendered Marketing

Pink Stinks For Girls' Toys

It’s common knowledge that toys are marketed to boys and girls in hugely different–and often troubling–ways. Media literacy advocate and video artist Jonathan McIntosh has come up with a super effective way to illustrate those differences. It’s called the Gendered Advertising Remixer, and the concept is simple: on one side of the screen is a selection of ads targeting boys, on the other side are ads targeting girls. You drag one ad to the audio box, one to the video box, click “Mashup,” and you’ll watch a sweet, maternal ad for a baby doll accompanied by the explosions and violent rhetoric of a GI Joe commercial (or swap the audio and video for equally confusing results). Some of the remixes are funny, but all of them bring up major questions about our culture’s definitions of gender, how early they are instilled in us, and how harmful they can be. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Remix some ads for yourself! [Gendered Advertising Remixer]
