Holy Insensitivity: Class of 2011 T-shirt Is Totally Inappropriate

Nine high school juniors in Dearborn, MI, who are Arab-American, were suspended for wearing these T-shirts that refer to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Um, where were their parents? Or better yet, what printing company took this job? [Fox News via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Yoko Ono Will Write Her Memoir Before 2015

The thing I remember most about my lame boyfriend from sophomore year of college was his seething hatred of Yoko Ono. According to my ex, the Beatles were the most brilliant band in the world and they only broke up because some hussy brainwashed John Lennon. I just ignored that quirk in his personality at the time. Eventually, though, I realized the Frothing At The Mouth To Blame Yoko For Everything Wrong In The World bandwagon is cuh-razy! (Read Can’t Buy Me Love by Jonathan Gould if you don’t believe me.)

A Kiss Is Just A Kiss … Or An Airport Security Breach

Last Sunday, there was a big post-underpants bomber mess at Newark Airport in New Jersey. The entire place was completely shut down—everyone in the terminal was evacuated and had to be rescanned to enter—because some dude walked the wrong way through security and disappeared into the crowd. So did this man have nefarious intentions? No, in true fairytale form, it turns out all he was after was a kiss. Here’s what happened: TSA agent Ruben Hernandez was keeping watch at the security barrier when an unnamed gentleman said farewell to his lady friend. The lady went off for her flight, and the man tried to follow her. At first, no problem—Hernandez stopped Romeo. But then the agent’s cell phone rang. While Hernandez was distracted, our unnamed suitor slipped unnoticed under the rope to spend some more time snogging his lady love. And panic ensued. All I have to say is, come on! Hasn’t TSA seen a romantic comedy before? (Or that episode of Friends when Janice shows up at the airport to bid Chandler goodbye as he leaves for his originally BS trip to Yemen?) Apparently not. They are currently using video footage and cross-checking it with airplane manifests to try to find the woman in question, hoping that she will lead to the still MIA Romeo. [New York Post]

Would You Tattoo Yourself With Double-C’s?

In our A.D.D.-addled generation, the ability to easily change your look — from your outfit to your hair — is necessary. So although tattoos have gained and maintained their popularity, there’s something stressful about the utter permanence of the design. Karl Lagerfeld has the answer. Remember when we spotted these temporary double-C tattoos on the models at the Chanel spring 2010 show? Well, now they can be yours. Starting in mid-Feb., Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel Temporary Skin Art will go on sale at Chanel.com. For about $78, you’ll get 55 tattoos — a small price to pay considering the cost of a real tattoo or a quilted bag. [Elle UK] Keep reading »

Insane, Ballsy Move: Weatherproof Puts Obama Ad In Times Square

Clothing company Weatherproof just scored quite the plum spokesmodel: Who better to vouch for their spiffy, sporty jackets than President Obama looking handsome and rugged at The Great Wall of China? In fact, he charges much less than Linda Evangelista (actually, he costs zero dollars), and they’re so dang proud they just went ahead and plastered the ad right up in the middle of Times Square, one of the crossroads of the world. Why exactly is this such an extraordinary, awe-inspiring feat? Because Obama had absolutely no say in the move, and therefore Weatherproof clearly has some pretty huge cajones.

So how did this happen exactly? Keep reading »

Do You Put Mascara On Your Lower Lashes?

What are your thoughts on mascara and lower lashes? We know that Amy Adams, above, is a fan of the stand-out makeup move—or maybe it’s just that her makeup artist is, of course. Personally, I’m not a fan—it feels a little too overdone, like my lower lashes are in a look-at-me competition with my upper ones. That and the very small fact that I can never apply it without globs of mascara and clumps (and having to separate my individual lashes one by one with a safety pin—sorry, eyeballs!). But I’ve been working on my technique and have found three tricks that help:

8 Amazing Celebrity Comebacks Coming At You In 2010

2009 was a big year for celebrity comebacks, with Mickey Rourke, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, and Courteney Cox steppin’ back into the proverbial spotlight. But something tells me that 2010 is going to be even better. One comeback that has me extremely giddy: Mayim Bialik, aka “Blossom,” aka the girl who inspired me to wear hats and sew my very own tie skirt. Mayim disappeared off the pop culture radar screen for a while, and headed to UCLA to get a Ph.D. in neuroscience and start a family—she now has two children. Last year, she miraculously reappeared on an episode of “What Not To Wear.” And now, she’s making a run for a full-fledged comeback, with guest-starring spots on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” and “Til Death.” Mayim said, “I am trying to see if the industry would like to see me as an adult actress and not as a teenager … When I do personal appearances at colleges, I have to sort of backtrack and say, ‘In case you didn’t know, I was on after ‘The Fresh Prince’ for five years.’” [NY Post]

Oh, but that is just the beginning. Really. Here other soon-to-be comebacks that we’re very excited about. Keep reading »

More Brits Consider Affairs During Snowstorm

Most folks tend to get cozy under blankets, or a Snuggie, and watch a good movie when they get snowed in, but not some Britons. Instead, they arrange extra-marital affairs. IllicitEncounters.com, a website that connects married people with others seeking affairs, reported yesterday that it had received a record number of new profiles over 24 hours during recent wintry weather. The site said more than 2,567 people signed up in the last six days, and most new members were from areas severely hit by the winter weather, like Hampshire, Berkshire, and the West Country. A spokesperson for the site theorizes that many of the people could have been waiting for a time to join when they weren’t under the watch of coworkers or partners. The site has had to hire temporary personnel to cope with the unexpected jump in members. [Reuters] Keep reading »
