Quickies!: A Sexy Fake Perfume Ad, More Chris Brown Details, & “Grey’s” Departures

  • This is a little too abstract for us to completely understand, but it includes two of our biggest girl crushes ever, so we thought we’d share. Roman Polanski directed a fake commercial for a fake perfume called Greed. This faux ad is supposedly commenting on the hype that surrounds the launch of new luxury products. Whatever, we want to steal Williams’ Little Black Riding Hood look. [DazedDigital.com]
  • Rihanna’s grandmother said people shouldn’t worry about Rihanna because she’s doing fine and doesn’t have a broken nose. Thanks for the update Nana! [Perez Hilton]
  • The “Got Milk” folks won’t renew Chris Brown’s ad campaign when it expires this week. Similarly, Wrigley’s Doublemint has suspended the ads featuring Brown until the issue is resolved. Oh, and radio stations are already stopping playing Brown’s music. [DListed and Cleveland.com]

    Single People Kick Butt

    Couples always seem to catch a lucky break over Valentine’s Day. They can’t just be happy to have someone to spend the day with. No! That’s not enough for couples; they seem to get all the cool Valentine’s Day promotions as well. For example, many hotels are offering cute weekend getaways, restaurants always have romantic dinner specials, and the most relaxing place in the world, the spa, is offering couples massages and packages. Everywhere I look, it’s “free for couples” this, and “lovers special” that. Ugh! Well, it’s time I take my frustration out on something… Keep reading »

    AIDS Gels May Offer Women Protection

    AIDS researchers are one step closer to finding another method of protection that can help stop the spread of HIV and AIDS among women. Dr. Salim Abdool Karim of the Center for the AIDS Program of Research in South Africa and his colleagues have tested two protective gels, one called PRO 2000 and the other called BufferGel, in trying to find a microbicide (that’s the fancy scientific word for something that reduces the chance that you’ll be infected by a virus or bacteria) that will protect women from HIV/AIDS when their partners aren’t wearing condoms. Among the 3,000 women tested, PRO 2000 reduced the rate of HIV infection by a third. “We do not regard it as a definitive conclusion that PRO 2000 is a microbicide but we certainly view it as very promising,” said Karim at a conference of AIDS experts in Montreal. Unfortunately, his team was unable to find any evidence that BufferGel helped. The study was only designed to determine whether the gels were safe, since other, similar studies revealed that gels and creams like PRO 2000 and BufferGel actually increased the likelihood of infection.

    Blaming The Victim: Can We Stop Looking For Excuses For Chris Brown?

    If one more person sends me a link to a story which says that Rihanna gave Chris Brown herpes and that’s why he allegedly hit and bit her, I will scream. According to no one with any authority, Rihanna “got herpes from a famous rapper and passed it on to her current boyfriend…the R&B singer supposedly just started showing the symptoms and lashed out at his girlfriend as a result.” Who the eff cares if Rihanna DID give Chris Brown herpes that she got from “a famous rapper” (way to get Jay-Z involved, rumor mongers)? Last time I checked, there is NO REASON EVER to assault a woman. Can people quit looking for a reason, any reason, to excuse abuse? If it were true, it would mean that Brown is just a controlling, abusive a-hole. Not every scandal can have a back story. Keep reading »

    Chris Brown’s Family History Of Domestic Violence

    Before last Sunday, Chris Brown seemed like the rags-to-riches poster child. He popped and locked his way into the hearts of American women, and his baby face seemed to reveal a gentle and fun nice guy on the inside. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photo of him scowling or not having fun. But we all know looks are deceiving and a person’s past is much more telling…

    Poll: Have You Had A Presidential Fantasy?

    Book Smart: Oscar Reads “Benjamin Button”

    Anyone can see the movie; only smarties read the book. This year all five nominees for Best Picture are stolen from based on literary sources. We’re giving you a cheat sheet to all of Hollywood’s hippest reads.

    First up is “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” Based on a 1921 F. Scott Fitzgerald story, it snapped up a whopping 13 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Brad Pitt, as a man born old who gets younger each day. Pitt took the “go-ugly” requirement for Oscar Gravitas (see: Charlize Theron, “Monster”) to a new level.

    The original story is 26 pages, so director David Fincher and screenwriter Eric Roth had to add stuff so the movie wouldn’t be, like, 26 minutes. After the jump, a rundown of the movie versus the book… Keep reading »

    Porn Star Runs For Senate?

    If a former actor can be elected Governor of California and a comedian can run for Senator in Minnesota, then why can’t a porn star run for a Senate seat in Louisiana? Stormy Daniels is a female porn star who is rumored to be challenging current Senator David Vitter for Louisiana’s Senate seat in 2010. Vitter made headlines in 2007 for being linked to the DC Madam. Although the GOP forgave Vitter’s indiscretion, the people of Louisiana may not have been so willing to overlook his flaw.

    This year, an ad appeared on Craigslist seeking “a female in some aspect of the adult-entertainment industry” to run against Vitter. Perhaps someone out there wanted a porn star to run against Vitter to remind everyone of Vitter’s link to the scandal? Soon after, a website “drafting” porn actress Stormy Daniels to oppose Vitter popped up. Since then, Stormy seems to have gotten on board with the idea of running for office… Keep reading »
