High Glitz Or Child Tragedy?

The coffee table book High Glitz would seriously freak out anyone who sat down on my couch. The collection of images shows beauty queen toddlers posing for the child pageant sub-genre called Glitz. These tots get glamour makeup, front teeth veneers, and couture costumes before being photographed. It speaks from an era I hoped didn’t really exist. So, are these beautiful images or child abuse? You’ll have to be the judge. I say somebody needs to take these kids outside to make mud pies. [Lil Sugar]

How Singer/Songwriter Chris Garneau Helped Me Through My Mom’s Battle With Cancer


I vividly remember the best and worst night of my year. As Barack Obama cheered “Yes, We Can,” my mother was absent-mindedly thumbing what we all agreed was a lump on her chest. I took comfort in the fact that she said it hurt—cancer doesn’t hurt. She’ll be fine, I thought. But as we toasted champagne and hugged each other for Obama’s victory, with brows slightly furrowed, I prayed for my mother, my strong and stubborn mother. I didn’t go with her to the doctor—my father did. I probably slept until noon, which was a common occurrence since I’d just driven all my belongings and my cat 1,991 miles from New York City to Santa Fe in three days. I was jobless, tentatively moving to Los Angeles in a few months and had no idea what I was doing with my future. And it turned out that my 58-year-old mother, my best friend and deepest confidant, had breast cancer. Keep reading »

The Wait Is (Almost) Ova For Rihanna’s New Album!

Rihanna‘s Rated R album hits stores in 20 days (yes, I’m counting), and a video for the new song “Wait Your Turn” just came out!

What Do Reality TV Stars Make, Anyway?

After the premiere of VH1′s “Sex Rehab,” I found myself thinking one thing: How much did folks get paid to be on this show, cause I certainly hope it’s a whole heck of a lot. Ask and ye shall receive—a day later, I have my answer. Comedian Artie Lange, a former heroin and cocaine addict, has revealed to the NY Post that he was offered $200K to go on “Celebrity Rehab.” He turned the offer down. “They said it was about me getting better, but if I relapsed, they’re not going to air that?” he said. “My mother knows I’ve done coke, but she’s never seen me do it.” Still, that is a lot of dough we’re talking about. After the jump, let’s see how that compares to what others get for starring in reality shows. [TV.com] Keep reading »

You Wish Yo Kitteh Ate With Chopsticks


OK, the cat doesn’t hold the chopsticks, the owner does, but still! This is, like, the cutest thing I’ve seen since the last time I saw a cute thing on the internet. I like the crazy hair growing out its ears, its eager eating method, and its tiny little begging paws. Apparently, this is some sort of kitty training technique. Watch the cats bang out a spooky tune here! OK, I just went into cute overload. [URL] Keep reading »

“Kate: Her Story” Is Like A Televised Therapy Session

Last night, because “Kate Plus 8″ is in limbo thanks to a certain someone (JON! That’s you!), TLC decided to air a special called “Kate: Her Story,” featuring Kate Gosselin being interviewed by Natalie Morales. Morales failed to ask really important questions—like, “How do you feel about Heidi Montag being you for Halloween?”—and basically just gave Kate a forum to cry and smear her smoky eye makeup. Since you probably couldn’t stomach the idea of watching the whole thing (plus, you were busy watching the World Series), here are the choicest quotes from the hour-long special. Keep reading »

WTF Is Up With Chris Brown’s New Album Cover?

If Chris Brown was hoping for a career comeback after he beat the crap out of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, the hot mess that is the just-revealed art for his upcoming album, Graffiti, is not going to help. Why is he holding a guitar? He doesn’t play! Is he on a spaceship? Is that a moon? Why are his pants so tight? Who are those creatures in the bottom corner? And why is he going to mace them with a can of spray paint? PopEater goes into further detail about the five awesomely ridiculous things about it. Somewhere, Adam Lambert is feeling really great right now. [PopEater] Keep reading »
