Did you take a close look at Lady Gaga‘s groin area at the VMAs, when she appeared all night as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone? According to Us Weekly, if you had, you might have noticed a little somethin’ somethin’ down there. (And no, this isn’t a rehash of the rumor from 2009 that Gaga is a hermaphrodite.) According to the mag, Lady Gaga put on fake sideburns and fake stubble to make herself look more convincing, and also sported a prosthetic penis to help her get into character. While I still think her appearance totally bombed, this makes me slightly more interested.

Groupies aren’t usually seen as a positive force for women—the word has never exactly been associated with feminism. But groupies strike me as women who are owning their desires and getting what they want. There have been quite a few famous groupies over the years, but they still aren’t celebrated. And yet, as the fantasy of “Almost Famous” shows, we are intrigued. Here, a celebration of the most famous rock groupies and how they have evolved from the gypsy hippie girls of the 1960s to the pink haired Tumblr princesses of today.
Kim Kardashian, who hopes to have a second career as a recording artist, never released a video for her song “Jam (Turn It Up).” And judging from this 54-second clip that Perez Hilton leaked, we totally get why. It’s awful. Basically, it’s a slew of pervy shots of Kim’s butt in slow motion as she crawls around in a pair of hot pink vinyl hot pants that are riding up her cheeks. Yes, you can even kinda see her crack. Ironically, this leak comes on the heels of the news that her sex tape will soon be disappearing from the interwebs, thanks to an anonymous client who has bought it. Perhaps this is Kris Humphries’ wedding gift to his new bride? But now what’s he gonna do about this video? [Huffington Post, Chicago Tribune] Keep reading »
The discerning female film viewer has long trained herself to separate rom-coms from reality when it comes to her love life. He’s probably not going to win you over with a grand romantic gesture, he’s probably not going to beat up some loser just to impress you, and he’s probably not going to have Matthew McConaughey’s abs. But that’s why we watch those flicks, isn’t it? It’s like porn for women’s emotions — or at the very least, something light and fluffy to entertain you when you’re lying at home on a Saturday night with cramps.
Romantic comedies about romance will always be made. Hey, something’s got to keep Jennifer Aniston working. However, in recent years, a new breed of romantic comedies has come around: work-comedies. Instead of McConaughey’s abs, we’re lusting after the woman on the big screen with the great hubby, the cute kids, and the important job. Keep reading »
Dear Film Industry,
Hey there! What’s up? I heard a rumor that you are working on a biopic of Patti Smith‘s memoir, Just Kids. Wow! I can’t say I’m surprised. It was a bestseller, winner of a National Book Award, and my favorite book of this year, aside from Freedom, which you will probably make into a movie too. But that’s not what I wanted to say. I wrote to beg of you, please don’t ruin this book by making a slick, star-studded movie. Keep reading »
Last night during “Bachelor Pad,” ABC unveiled the lineup for the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.” While I am shocked and dismayed that Queen Latifah is not among the ranks, I am totally thrilled by who they selected. Here are the women: Kristin Cavallari (of “The Hills’), Ricki Lake (of hello, do I need to explain?), Chynna Phillips (of Wilson Phillips), Nancy Grace (the newscaster), and Elisabetta Canalis (the Italian television star and recent ex of George Clooney). And the men: Ron Artest (the Los Angeles Laker), Carson Kressley (of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”), Robert Kardashian (the younger brother of Kim), and Chaz Bono (the son of Cher and Sonny Bono who used to be a she.) And the two people who it’s a stretch to call stars: JR Martinez (the “All My Children” actor who was burned while serving in Iraq) and Hope Solo (the goalie of the US women’s soccer team. No relation to Han.)
After the jump, 14 predictions on what we think will happen this season. Keep reading »
