Oooh, this is a good blind item, and NO, I have no facts about who it is, though I have my theories (see above). Via Dorothy Is Dead:
“We’re not even sure why the magazines keep pushing it, but this couple who are said to be romantically involved, are actually nothing but. Sure, they’re having fun playing with the press, but it’s mostly because they are told it would be a good marketing strategy for their career. Everyone around them knows however, that they are just good friends, not lovers. One in all the media buzz is actually rumored to swing the other way. Not Chace Crawford.”
So … guesses? Keep reading »
Dads are super hard to buy for because rarely will they tell you they don’t like something. They’re used to pretending to like really crappy things from when you were a kid. But now that you’re an adult, it’s time you reward Dad for keeping his mouth shut and sparing your feelings all those years. Still baffled? Here are 10 gifts your father will love.
We all troll The Sartorialist for style inspiration and general lusting for items of clothing and shoes that we’ll never be able to afford. But now there’s Planet Awesome Kid, which is basically like a miniature version of everyone’s favorite street style photographs. Julia Samersova, a model agent and casting director, created the site to basically showcase the brilliant style of pint-sized fashion trendsetters. There’s a little boy in gold sneakers, a girl who has a penchant for mixing patterns and a teeny updated version of Danny Zuko from “Grease.” Sure, some of these children were dressed by their parents, but you have to agree that sometimes, kids are just more creative, and sometimes more stylish.

Considering how many teens and adult women throw themselves at Robert Pattinson every day, I bet he was actually more intrigued by this woman, who obviously couldn’t give a hoot about him. [via Tumblr] Keep reading »
Newsweek turned to some unusual candidates to weigh in on the top headline-grabbing sex scandals. Porn star Sasha Grey, former madam Heidi Fleiss, and sex columnist Dan Savage, in addition to Rachel Maddow and Jonathan Ames, throw their two cents in on Mark Sanford’s mistress, Eliot Spitzer’s daliances, and John Edwards’ affair. According to Grey, perverted politicians aren’t the problem, it’s their wives. “Americans act so shocked when they hear about politicians, celebrities, and athletes having affairs,” Grey posits, “but I have to believe that many women who are married to men with power are aware of affairs, and accept it.” Instead, Grey suggests, we should all embrace our freaky side. “Consensual sexual preferences shouldn’t govern our politics, media, or way of life,” she opines. “Ideally, we should all openly have something extra on the side.” If she’s right, 2010 should be a doozy.

Our favorite makeup tutorialist Glowpinkstah is now TV host George Lopez’s favorite guest. She gave an audience member a chola look earlier this week, but that was clearly just a warm up for the main event, which was transforming the whitest white girl celebrity ever into a Latina gangster. Huh. No wonder she’s not calling us back. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Have you seen “Precious” yet? It’s everything the buzz says it’s going to be: Gabby Sidibe plays Precious, who has been raped by her father and had two children by him, and Mo’Nique plays the abusive mother who calls Precious the most vile names and throws a TV set at her head. Incest, physical violence, verbal abuse … it’s a heavy one.
So I’ve been asking myself why I watched the movie in a Jersey City (New Jersey) theater, sitting next to a woman who held her toddler son in her lap the whole time. Just how recently out-of-the-womb was this little chubster? Young and socially unaware enough that when the movie was over, he walked straight over to my Diet Coke and touched it, putting his germy little hands all over my straw. Maybe 3 years old? Possibly only 2? Keep reading »
Rihanna has been in the news a lot over the past year, thanks to the Chris Brown assault back in February and, finally, yesterday’s release of Rated R, her first new album in two years. Some of the lyrics on the record seem to tie these two big events together. Let’s take a look … Keep reading »
