Dudes, don’t take any cues from Drew Olanoff. The Twitter user, who apparently is known for starting the Twitter campaign “#blamedrewscancer” after he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, proposed to his girlfriend via Twitter. Sarah Cooley said yes, but we wouldn’t blame her for being pissed that he asked for her hand in marriage in such a public way — and not even in person! [Mashable] Keep reading »
Last night’s episode of “NYC Prep” aimed to bring the viewer “deeper” into the Upper East Side world, or at least that’s how some fancy schmancy producers would term it. What you really saw was how awkward high school really is, even when the people who go there claim to be “mini-adults” and how everyone just has to be in everyone’s business. Yet there were a few moments fairly reflective of teenage problems: PC brings us into a therapy session (weird), Camille’s desperation hangs more and more on her every word, and Kelli’s life is rattled by insecurities.
Read on to get a full rundown of the second episode. Keep reading »
In what must surely be the slowest of news days, the Daily Mail brings us an article today shedding light on the “disturbing” trend of girls kissing girls. Perhaps you’ve heard of this before? According to the article, same-sex kisses among teen girls has practically become a rite of passage ever since that shared kiss between Madonna and Britney Spears at the 2003 MTV Video Awards. “More than anything, the kiss gave the veneer of acceptance to what would previously have been considered unacceptably risque public behavior, and made a particular type of lipstick lesbianism almost fashionable.” Funny, I went to college years before that infamous kiss and girl-on-girl smoochin’ was “an almost fashionable rite of passage” back then.

Taylor Momsen isn’t the only “Gossip Girl” star to be exercising her vocal chords. Leighton Meester (aka Blair Waldorf), has just made her voice known on a new track with Cobra Starfish called “Good Girls Go Bad.” Leighton only sings a few chorus lines, but she’s not bad!

With the proliferation of MySpace and Facebook have come a slew of ridiculous pictures that chicks (usually obnoxious tweens) take so they can post them and show everyone that they are popular and hot. First, there was that one armed picture, usually taken while pouting or with mouth suggestively open. Then there was the peace sign pose, almost always taken with another girl. Bonus points if one or both girl’s tongues were sticking out. Next, came the sexy body picture taken by aiming a camera at your dirty bathroom mirror. When we thought it couldn’t get any worse, faux lesbian pics cropped up everywhere. And now, our worst nightmare has come to pass. The dreaded “boob circle” has hit Facebook photo albums across the globe. [COEDMagazine]

We’ve heard of chicken pox parties, where parents get their healthy kids together with ones who have the pox hoping that they’ll pick up the germies. The idea is, since you can only get chicken pox once, to get it over with so that kids can build up their immune systems and avoid getting chicken pox vaccines. Yeah, we don’t think it’s a good idea, but at least it makes slight logical sense.
However, we just don’t get why some mothers are thinking about throwing swine flu parties. Same idea, different disease—they want to strengthen their children’s immune systems in case a stronger swine flu strain comes around in the fall. But a swine flu party is just outrageous! Doctors are firmly warning against the idea as several people have died from H1N1 in the months it’s been around. So mothers, if you know what’s best, skip the Swine Par-tay. Throw a Dora, Dora, the Explorer shindig instead. [CNN] Keep reading »
