Dear Christina Aguilera,
Mariah here. You know me as multi-platinum zillion-selling recording artist Mariah Carey, but you can just call me Mimi. Me and a few of the S&M crew (that’s singing and movies crew, guys!) wanted to reach out to you because we heard you had a new movie coming out, called “Burlesque.”
First: Soooooo sorry about Lady Gaga stealing your whole kooky blonde lady steez — we heard you had to cancel a bunch of dates on your last tour because you just couldn’t get it together. No worries, mama.
But back to “Burlesque.” Keep reading »
Fall in love with Vogue creative director Grace Coddington in “The September Issue”? Lucky us. Some smartypants publisher has convinced Anna Wintour’s right-hand woman to pen a memoir. She’ll share her life as a model in ’60s London and her decades-plus at both British and American Vogue. Grace’s book will be co-written with the former editor-in-chief of Men’s Vogue.
But it’s not all good news in the style section of your local bookstore … Keep reading »
There’s nothing better to do on a lazy summer day than lay in the park and cloud-gaze. It’s an elephant … an ice cream cone … a peen? There’s no mistake. This cumulus looks like c**k. After the jump, some more undeniably wang-like clouds. Ah, the majesty of nature. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Sometimes you don’t even need a group of friends to have a good time. So, put your cell phone away, shut down your laptop, and start doing things for you! In honor of Love Yourself Week, we compiled a list of awesome things you can do by yourself. Here are the 10 best ones! Keep reading »
For the dudes (or the ladies) who can’t find a decent date, why not try a more captive audience … like inmates. Three new online dating sites, Prison Inmates, Cellblockmail, and Meet-An-Inmate allow you to find the prisoner pen pal of your dreams. If things go well, maybe she will call you collect or let you deposit funds into her commissary account. I’m personally a fan of Sandy, the 56-year-old dental hygienist looking for the “Abott to her Costello.” Uh, dare I ask what landed her in the slammer for murder in the second degree? Actually, I’m not sure I want to know. After the jump, the most eligible bachelorettes behind bars. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
We’re just a few weeks away from September, which is terrifying because where the hell did the time go? But also nice because all the hooligans will be back in school and, at least between the hours of 8 and 3 p.m., the streets will be safe. And the movie theaters and malls will be empty and the beaches pristine and quiet. Not that anything cool ever happens before 3 p.m. anyway, but it’s somehow comforting that the kids will be at their desks, filling their little minds with knowledge. This has nothing to do with movies really, except that now you can go to matinees and there won’t be anyone throwing popcorn at the back of your head. Probably. This week, go catch “The Switch,” “Lottery Ticket,” “Piranha 3D,” or “”Nanny McPhee Returns.” Keep reading »
It feels like Ryan Murphy gets just about anything he wants for the ratings juggernaut that is “Glee.” Britney Spears is currently on set, posting about how “GLEEKERIFIC!!!” it is. And for the fall, the show also has guest spots lined up for heavy hitters like John Stamos and Jennifer Lopez. But, on occasion, people do turn the show down. Kings of Leon has just revealed that “Glee” requested to use one of their songs—I’m guessing “Use Somebody.” But the rockers said uh-uh. “We could have sold out so much more,” said bassist Jared Followill. “We turn stuff down constantly.” [EW]
After the jump, more folks who just said no to “Glee.” Keep reading »
We know good comedy when we see it. Like, for instance, a woman who isn’t afraid to make fun of balls. Yeah, there’s no nice way to say it, they’re just … ugly. A few months ago, we told you Whitney Cummings was a comedienne to watch and now she has her own Comedy Central special called “Whitney Cummings: Money Shot.” You can laugh with Whitney tomorrow night as she pontificates at length on important topics such as balls, porn, and “the pump fake.” Done and done.

The Daily Beast brings up a good point today about the phenomenon that is “Eat, Pray, Love.” Writer Danielle Friedman asks, “What’s it like to be the guy whose heartbreak launched a multi-million-dollar feel-good franchise?” She tracked down Michael Cooper, Elizabeth Gilbert’s ex-husband, and discovered that he is now a public interest law scholar at the Georgetown University Law Center. He’s also remarried, to a Canadian diplomat, and has two young sons. However, he wasn’t interested in commenting on the movie, the book, or Elizabeth Gilbert in general.
Which is interesting, because last year he was contracted to write a rebuttal book. Keep reading »
