Javier Colon is to “The Voice” what Kelly Clarkson was to “American Idol.” On last night’s season finale, Javier beat out Dia Frampton, Vicci Martinez, and the awesome lady baldy Beverly McClellan to become the first winner of our new favorite singing show. He won by a margin of two percent of the vote, clenching a recording contract with Universal Republic Records and a cool $100,000. So who exactly is this guy? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
No, no, no, no, no. The other week, we introduced you to Sammie Spades, the porn star who has been in such hits as “White Bubble Butts #4m” and who, back in the day, was an intern in Hillary Clinton‘s Buffalo office. Sammie was lucky enough to snap a photo of herself with Hill that fateful summer of 2006. But now, the adult film star is leveraging the experience for evil. According to TMZ, Sammie is working on a new XXX spoof in which she’ll get to know her former boss in the Biblical sense. No, like really. Here is a photo of Sammie casting potential Hillary stand-ins for the flick. Keep reading »
It’s not easy being blue. In the new issue Harper’s Bazaar, Smurfette models hot designer accessories, from Marc Jacobs to Louis Vuitton (as seen here). All I have to say is—homegirl looks kinda fly. [Harper’s Bazaar] Keep reading »
Before the Internet took over our lives and blogs and Tumblrs were the common parlance for self-indulgent self-expression, there were fanzines. And I had one. Actually, a few.
It’s hard to imagine a time before the Internet was able to connect people with like-minded obsessions so quickly and easily, but 20 years ago, when dial-up was the only way to get online, blogs weren’t an option. Instead, creative types — social misfits and weirdos, artists and writers — made hand-crafted magazines, called fanzines, relying on scammed photocopies and cut-and-paste aesthetics to express themselves.

It’s Crack A Book Week here at The Frisky, so what better time to start a page-turning series that will keep you occupied for the next few months? A hole was left in our pop culture-loving hearts when HBO’s “Game of Thrones” came to an end a few weeks ago, but the book series that inspired the show — written by George R. R. Martin and endorsed by our own John DeVore — lies in wait, ready to be soaked up along with the hot summer sun. The first four book are available as a boxed set for under $20, a deal we can’t resist. Winter may be a-comin’, but it’s still a long way off — we need Game of Thrones now.
Everything I need to know I learned from a Countess LuAnn de Lesseps music video. Last year, we were taught that “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” And now in her new video for “Chic, C’est La Vie,” LuAnn has the following lessons to share: (a) saying a few French words makes you all the more fabulous, (b) diamonds are like, really important, and (c) every girl needs her besties—this time she has buddies Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon along to help her with the song. But the best part is when LuAnn tries to get philosophical. “Find your dreams within yourself and live with dignity/ Hair done, jewelry on, Oh mirror on the wall/ Beauty, class, and elegance fly within the soul.” Yeah, that almost rhymes.
