A Vegan Strip Club?

I am a recovered vegan. I gave up all animal by-products for four years in high school, so while I’ve since been converted back to the way of cheese, I do empathize with people who are disciplined enough to keep with it. Case in point, Johnny Diablo, who’s been a vegan for 23 years and opened a vegan restaurant in Portland, Oregon, called Casa Diablo. And, uh, it’s a strip club with a “From Dusk Til Dawn” theme. “Please do not wear fur, feathers, silk, wool, or leather on stage. Thank you, the Animals,” reads a sign in the dressing room.

The Nirvana Baby Is All Grown Up. And Kind Of Hot.


I, like pretty much everyone who was conscious in 1991, remember the first time I heard “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” I was conveniently located in a record store at the time, and quickly grabbed a clerk to ask what the song was. He handed me Nirvana’s Nevermind. My first thought, “Oh, there’s a baby on the cover. And there’s his penis.” I bought it and it naturally became one of my favorites to this day. But who is that little baby chasing the money in the pool? His name is Spencer Elden, and he’s all grown up now—he’s an artist in Los Angeles. In this video, he tells about how the famous cover came to be and what he’s up to now. Luckily, he’s 19, so it’s okay to have a crush on him. Maybe. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Young Hollywood Clamors To Be Cast In “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”

I’m a little tired this week. The last three nights I’ve been up till at least 2 a.m. reading Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, the first book in a three-part crime novel series that has been hailed by critics. It was an incredible page turner, in addition to being very well-written. Larsson died in 2004 and all three books were published, first in his native Swedish and then in English, after his death: Dragon Tattoo in 2005, The Girl Who Played With Fire in 2009, and the third, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest, is due out in the U.S. this month. At the center of all three novels is the incredibly compelling character of Lisbeth Salander and Hollywood actresses are reportedly lining up around the block in hopes of scooping up the part in a much-rumored-about U.S. film adaptation. Having just finished the book last night, I have many thoughts on who could play Lisbeth, a role which I believe could be a complete career maker for a young actress. Keep reading »

Less Than 53 Hours Until Betty White Hosts “SNL”!


I’m really looking forward to my usual stay-in-and-be-a-homebody-loser-routine on Saturday night because Betty White is hosting “Saturday Night Live,” with musical guest Jay-Z. NBC has released a few more promos and if they’re an example of what’s to come, my excuse for not going out is golden. Is there anything more awesome than Betty White throwing up a gang sign?!

Sade Gives A Shout-Out To The “Baby Father” In New Video


Sade has released the video for “Baby Father” just in time for Father’s Day on June 13 20. The song celebrates the unconditional love of a father rather than the usual “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone” theme in songs about dads. I’d watch Sade singing from a dark closet, but the rich vintage-looking quality of the video and the imagery makes “Baby Father” even more special. Keep reading »

“American Idol” Producers Edit Out 2 Minutes Of Lady Gaga’s Performance


On last night’s episode of “American Idol,” Lady Gaga performed a medley of “Bad Romance” and “Alejandro” which clocked in at a whopping six and a half minutes. However, because producers pre-taped Gaga’s appearance — to ensure there were no moments that might be deemed “offensive”? — they were able to lop off over two minutes’ worth of her performance, because lord knows “AI” doesn’t want too much time taken up by someone who can actually sing. No worries, the full performance is, of course, available on YouTube, which you can watch above. (If you really want to dissect the differences, the edited version is after the jump.) I know there are people who think this bitch is overrated, but I think she’s got a mean set of pipes. And what’s not to love about hot-bodied and partially clothed male interpretive dancers?

Frisky Q & A: Songstress Kate Nash Talks Love, OCD, And Bunny Rabbits

If you are reading this and “Foundations” isn’t running through your head right now, you have problems. Kate Nash burst onto the music scene in 2007 with her album Made of Bricks, giving a whimsical alternative to other British songbirds like Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen. Three years and one mental breakdown later, she is back with a new album, My Best Friend Is You, that has a serious retro vibe while letting her scream at the top of her lungs. (Check out her first video, for “Do Wah Doo,” below.) After the jump, Kate talks to The Frisky about her obsession with airports in the ‘50s, her issues with OCD, and why she wishes she could join Bikini Kill. Keep reading »

Is That A Unicorn Horn, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

A good man is as hard to find as a unicorn these days. But this uniboy, who looks like he was magically teleported from the ’80s, is oh-so-real. There’s nothing quite like a man with a rainbow hornhawk, hooves, and pink high tops to make an ordinary night unforgettable. Apparently, unicorn role-play is becoming more mainstream and less mythical. As far as I understand, it’s a subcategory of the Furry Fandom world. In case you don’t know what that is (I only know because Dan Savage taught me)—it’s people who are into humans with animal attributes. Think boytaurs. You learn something new every day. [Erooups]

After the jump, some more super sexy, supernatural unicorns that will put a spell on you. Abracadabra! Keep reading »

We’d Like To Watch “You Again” With Our Mom


It’s too bad “You Again” doesn’t hit theaters until September, because seeing it would make a totally fun mother-daughter outing for Mother’s Day. In the film Kristen Bell stars as Marni, a young woman who seems to have her life together … until she discovers that her brother is marrying her high school arch nemesis. Hilarity ensues, especially when Marni’s mom (Jamie Lee Curtis) gets a visit from her high school rival, the fiancée’s aunt (Sigourney Weaver). Unfortunately for those of us with high school reunions coming up, the movie proves that no matter how fabulous you’ve become, you can’t escape who you used to be, even if you’ve gotten rid of your awkwardness, zits, and glasses.
