“Rumor check: went to gay bar in Palm Springs, yes. Had a blast. Danced my face off. Someone there planted a kiss on me? No. I don’t like the story painting gays as unable to control themselves. Found the crowd even more respectful than in a straight club. You know who the most flamboyant crowd is? Straight, drunk girls. They’re like a bunch of little Charles Nelson Reillys.”
— John Mayer, who once made out with blogger Perez Hilton, doing what he can to dispel rumors he had another gay kiss recently. [via US Weekly] Keep reading »
This is interesting: a new study done by Trinity College confirmed that more women than men believe in God. In a survey of Americans who claim to be unaffiliated with any religion, 19 percent of men were nonbelievers while only 12 percent of women were. These stats are particularly ironic because, historically, major religions have not been, err, particularly kind or accommodating to women, not to mention the huge elephant in the room — that many major religions don’t have female leaders. So what gives? Why are the ladies more committed to God in spite of the obvious lack of preferential treatment? Keep reading »
We’ve seen humans as furniture before, but Atelier Van Lieshout‘s latest exhibition of work at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London puts fiberglass figures into some compromising positions. According to a press release, AVL has based sculptural works on the human body since the ’80s.”With a fascination bordering on obsession with the human body, this collection continues to explore new shapes and forms influenced by the human figure with all imperfections and complexities carefully manipulated to create functional sculptures that are at once abstract but also familiar.” Pretty hoity-toity commentary, considering the lamp above looks like a person slobbing a giant knob.

Alright, WTF is going on with this “Balloon Boy” story? For starters, can we stop calling Falcon Heene that, because, remember, he wasn’t actually in the balloon.
Secondly, was this a hoax or not? The family appeared on “Larry King” last night and Falcon seemingly called out his parents for faking the whole incident saying, “You guys said we did this for the show ….” Then this morning, the whole family appeared again
on “Today” and his dad, Richard, said he was appalled that anyone would even suggest
they staged this whole thing for publicity. Meanwhile, poor little Falcon barfed
during the interview and Meredith Vieira and his father ignored
it and continued on with the interview. Someone take the cameras off these people and put that little boy to bed. Keep reading »
Cue chorus of girlish squeals (or, um, not). But don’t these Pupa Kokeshi makeup dolls kind of remind you of your childhood? This brings us back to the days of princess-packaged blush, Polly Pockets, and all the other pretty things (or necessities) you’d carry around in your purse. The palm-sized dolls open up to reveal a range of fun colors to put on your face. Try swiping an eyeshadow in dark purple, pastel lavender, midnight blue, or charcoal.
Here’s our official plea to makeup companies to produce more lighthearted cosmetics! [Spoiled Brat] Keep reading »

Just when you thought that Tyra Banks couldn’t be any more full of s**t, she is. America’s Next Top Egomaniac will embarrass herself and the rest of the country by giving some poor woman a colonic on tomorrow’s episode. Tyra! Nooo! How much do you want to bet that this will somehow become a forum for Tyra to talk about how good-looking her anal cavity is? The worst part of this stunt is that the show is calling this the “first-ever televised colonic.” Well, shut your butt Tyra, because Katie Couric has been there and done that. She showed the entire world her pretty little colon on the “Today” show in 2002. And it wasn’t just because she wanted footage of her “smeyesing” a**hole—she wanted to raise awareness about colon cancer. See the clip of Katie’s colonoscopy after the jump. Tyra … we fart on you.
