    Amsterdam Is Ridding Itself Of Sin

    Amsterdam, known by many for its drugs and its brothels, is trying to clean up its image. The city council’s finance chief has a vision of people walking through Amsterdam’s China Town and the city’s old ramparts, followed by a cappuccino next to the city’s oldest church. The problem is, there isn’t a place to get a cup of coffee in the city center, because that’s the heart of Amsterdam’s red light district. Over the next 10 years, the number of prostitutes windows will be reduced by half, to about 250, and they will be concentrated on just two streets. The number of coffee shops that sell cannabis will also be halved, to 38. In their place, up-market retail chains and food purveyors. So, if you want to experience a dirtier version of Amsterdam, go now; but if you want to have a cleaner, less gritty trip, wait a few years and the prostitutes will mostly be gone.

    Quickies!: Beyonce Might Not Be Having Babies Quite Yet

  • Beyonce is afraid of childbirth. Maybe she should create another alter ego named, Mama Fearless. [Shine]
  • Lindsay Lohan cozied up to Sean Penn at a private dinner for his film “Milk.” She probably longed for some peen after seeing the film’s love scenes. [Dlisted]
  • Victoria Beckham’s fashion line seems almost identical to the line from her favorite designer, Roland Mouret, who helped her set up her atelier. [Perez Hilton]
  • Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown are trying to prevent Bobby’s tell-all book from coming out. In it he describes how his ex-wife introduced him to cocaine. Now that I know this little tidbit of info, I don’t really need to read the book. [Media Takeout]

    The Last 31 Days of 2008: Read A Book Series

    The entire Frisky office is presently working on the “Twilight” series because we’re trying to escape the holidays (if only for a few hours a week) and we love sexy, beautiful men, even if they’re imaginary. I’m also planning on reading the Sookie Stackhouse books now that the first season of “True Blood” is done. I didn’t want to spoil the TV series for myself, so now that I know the plot of the first book, “Dead Until Dawn,” I can’t wait to actually read it and the rest of the series in preparation for season two. If you’re not interested in these vampire series, then now is the perfect time to reread the Shopaholic series because the movie “Confessions of a Shopaholic” premieres early next year. Other great series’ to consider? All of Augusten Burrough’s memoirs, the “Dexter” book series (on which the TV series is based), and, yeah, Harry Potter.

    See all the ways to make the most of the last 31 days of 2008 here. Keep reading »

    The Oprah/Sarah Palin Interview That May Never Happen

    Oprah Winfrey told “Extra” last week that she had asked Sarah Palin to come on her show after the election, but instead Palin talked to other interviewers, including Matt Lauer and Larry King. Oprah sounded a little bitter — how could anyone say no to her?! Since Oprah may never get her interview, we took the liberty of creating a transcript for the Q&A that probably won’t happen.

    We See Chick Flicks: Cadillac Records

    Starring Adrien Brody, Jeffrey Wright, Gabrielle Union, Columbus Short, Cedric the Entertainer, Mos Def, Beyonce Knowles

    I took myself on a date yesterday to see “Cadillac Records” because I’m a history buff and love a biopic. Plus, I get fashion inspiration by seeing how people dressed in the past. I read very few reviews of the film before watching it because I wanted the movie to speak for itself. I was rather entertained, but, since I’m not a real blues fan or scholar, I didn’t notice the historical inaccuracies. Keep reading »

    Does College Turn Women Into Drunks?

    New York Magazine reports a recent study shows alcohol consumption is up — way, way up — in women. Dr. Richard Grucza, an epidemiologist and professor at Washington University School of Medicine, compared studies conducted in 1991 to 1992 and in 2001 to 2002 to see how same-age groups responded to questions about alcohol consumption a decade later. He discovered that though “the American attraction to alcohol is growing more potent,” the increase in alcohol consumption is primarily in women, and among them there’s an increase in dependence, too. Grucza explains this increase in alcohol consumption began around the middle of the last century, coinciding with Second Wave feminism. “As women ‘immigrated’ into the culture that was once unique to men,” says Grucza, “they picked up a lot of the same mores and attitudes and behaviors and ideas about what is socially acceptable that men had previously held.” And the place where women are picking up these attitudes and behaviors the most? College. Keep reading »
