In the September issue of Best Life, “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm, who plays ad exec Don Draper on the show, reveals that before he hit it big in Hollywood, he worked as a set dresser on soft-core porn movies. “It seemed like a wonderful way to spend 12 hours a day, five days a week for $150 a day … nonunion, no benefits. … Hollywood, baby!” he recalls. Nowadays, Hamm’s not alone. More than a few Hollywood players got their start working in the X-rated industry–and they aren’t ashamed to admit it. After the jump, find out who made their mark in Porn Valley. Keep reading »
We’ve seen abstinence-promoting promise rings, bracelets and even sweats. Now, your underwear, specifically your thong, can announce your commitment to abstinence with slogans like, “Earn your right to wear white. Abstain”, “Iron Hymen“, and “Beat It,” complete with a finger-pointing Jesus. Keep reading »
Who can resist the charms of glamour queen Dita Von Teese? Not even stodgy Prince Charles, which is why he introduced himself to the attractive alabaster stranger at a Cartier event. When the Royal asked Ms. Dita what she did, she replied that she was a “dancer.” When Prince Charles unwittingly asked the dancer to do a number at Prince Harry’s upcoming birthday party in September, he had no idea he’d get more show than he bargained for. After the damage, er booking, was done, an aide informed the culturally clueless Prince Charles about Dita’s contributions to the art of striptease and he was mortified. After all, what would his mummy think?! We think under those suits and floral hats, there’s a side to the Queen that likes to get down — or at least appreciate a woman who can. But we’ll have to wait and see if the real tassel-twirling burlesque show will go on at Buckingham Palace. [Daily Star]

Yesterday we were cheering on our flat-chested sisters for refusing to go under the knife, but we didn’t want you to think we were worshipping at the alter of thin either. Like The Music Nerd in yesterday’s “Thoughts From Guys On Our IM”, having a little junk in the trunk, as the rappers would say, is something to celebrate too. Even small-buseted Cameron Diaz recently said, “I want a big bum!” Oh, and speaking of rappers, hip-hop has been, uh, enthusiastically celebrating the rear end since it’s first beat — that’s why we’ve compiled this list of song lyrics about big booty shakin’. But not to be showed up, a few rock bands and a old-timey band leader (below) make an appearance as well.

Shia LaBeouf was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. Now, he’s not the first celeb to be accused of driving while intoxicated. Above, see a handy chart showing how much time stars have served recently after being convicted of driving while drunk or on drugs. Most celebs get probation for their first offense, but since Shia had that incident in Walgreens, the judge might not be so nice. Our bet is that if Shia is convicted and sentenced to jail time, he’ll be on the lower end of the scale and serve approximately 85 minutes. [AP] Keep reading »
