Okay, you’ve heard about how Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s name has also been associated with ”the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex,” right? (Thank you, Dan Savage). So why, why, why would supposed Rick Santorum supporters create an ad in which mud — suspiciously resembling the aforementioned excrement — is shot at the candidate by a faux-looking Mitt Romney? I mean, the picture on the Spreading Santorum site exactly resembles the mud spatterings portrayed in the ad. Unreal. [Huffington Post]
Will we ever hear the end of Lana del Rey? She’s been suspiciously absent from Fashion Week, and I thought for sure that her “Saturday Night Live” performance would finish the singer off for good, but the past few weeks have proven me wrong: not only has she landed a Vogue UK cover, but there’s reason to believe that LDR may be about to officially hit the scene as a fashion darling. Lana, who’s notedly less “gangster Nancy Sinatra” and more “I went to boarding school in upstate Connecticut” (she actually did) birth name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, will be escorted by this year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion fund winner, Joseph Altuzarra, to the Met Gala. Um, yeah, kind of a big deal. I can’t hate only because I really love the sartorial statements Lana/her team have made in the past — luxe fur coats + glittering gowns + Mulberry bags = my kind of girl. Hey, as long as she leaves her ridiculous diamond tooth cap at home, things will go over just fine. [Fashionista]
When approximately 70 percent of the Man Panelists cited “The Fifth Element” in our recent Valentine’s Day Man Panel, Amelia asked me what the deal was. “I have never even seen that movie,” she said, “but it must be a dude requirement.” Growing up with three brothers, I knew that it is in fact a dude requirement, and this got me thinking about other movies men obsess about. I surveyed my guy friends to flesh out a top 10 list and asked them to explain the appeal of each film. And now, without further ado, here’s our field guide to guy movies…
I’m sorry, did you think the Adele lovefest would end so soon? Of course not! The Grammy-winning singer appeared on “60 Minutes” on Sunday and was in adorable form. Enjoy this highlights reel which features loads of her adorable giggle, her promise that her next record won’t be about breakups, and the statement, “I don’t want to be a skinny minnie with my tits out.”
Whether your bedroom walls were plastered with posters of Kirk Cameron, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, or Scott Baio, having a dreamy crush on your favorite TV character (and the actor who plays him) is standard practice for teenage girls. In fact, most women continue to crush on hot TV characters (sans bedroom posters) well into adulthood. While completely fictional and harmlessly delusional, it’s hard to argue that some of these men are more consistent and reliable in your life (thanks to network television scheduling) than the actual men you date.
However, should your TV crush ever cross into real feelings territory, here are some reminders as to why most of these devilishly handsome, roguish characters would be an absolute nightmare to date in real life. God forbid they came out of the safe confines of your flat screen and into your bedroom, these guys would drive you to drink at the very least, or into a mental institution at the worst. Click through to see which sexy television characters would be most likely to cause you a psychotic episode.
I’m too young to remember Angelina in the age of Billy Bob [Sigh. -- Editor], but of course I’ve heard the legends: the tattoos, the tumultuous relationship, the blood vial necklaces. As if anyone needs to be reminded, before Angelina was an altruistic philanthropist, she was the baddest of bad girls, and Billy Bob Thornton only served to stoke her fire. They divorced in 2002, and while Angelina never mentions her ex to the press, he’s vocal about the fact that he still loves and respects his former love. Interesting it is, then, that Billy Bob has reached out to co-write a film, entitled “And Then We Drove,” that will be something of an interpretation of his relationship with Jolie. The film is set to be an “ethereal” story of a man on a road trip who picks up a “wild woman” and takes her along on his journey. I’m not too worried: Angelina was notoriously wanton, but it seems to me like Billy Bob reveres his ex-wife and would do little to incite her. Angelina was more public with her life and struggles during that time, so I don’t think there’s much we don’t know already know about her past… or is there? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
