Of all the lady mags, I tend to find the stories in Marie Claire to be the most informative, well-written, and thought-provoking. Celebrity interviews, of course, are a bit of a crapshoot; for every Lady Gaga (who will give amazing, ridiculous quote after amazing, ridiculous quote) there’s a Katie Holmes (who repeats canned answers that were clearly rehearsed over and over with a publicist in advance). Then there are all the celebrities who give interviews somewhere in the middle, sometimes interesting, sometimes not so much, often due to the types of questions posed by the interviewer. (Ask a celeb a boring question, you’ll probably get a boring answer.) For that reason, i wasn’t expecting much when I sat down to read the Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin cover story in the June issue of Marie Claire.
But I certainly didn’t expect six paragraphs devoted to discussing the stars’ weight. Keep reading »

Selena Gomez sure is stirring up some controversy this week. Yesterday, she smooched suspected beau Justin Bieber at the Billboard Music Awards, making tweenage girls everywhere swell with rage. And on Friday, she shot the video for “Love You Like a Love Song” in Malibu which features … pink horses. Selena’s rep says that no animals were harmed in the making of the video, but Pink was still not pleased. She tweeted, “If there are any animal activists around Malibu—at Leo Cabrillo State Beach—there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame.” Personally, I am way more concerned by the fact that her love interest in the video has way too long hair and is wearing fringed pants. Check him out after the jump. Keep reading »
A year ago, my then-boyfriend and I argued about something. I can’t remember anymore what it was about. But I know it made me upset the night we argued and lasted until the next morning, all the way from my commute from New Jersey into New York City. Pent-up with frustration, I needed to do something to make myself feel better. So instead of walking straight to my office, I ducked into an H&M, grabbed skirts, dresses and blouses off the racks without even trying them on, and spent something like $200 or $300 on clothes in less than half an hour.

I live in constant fear that one day I will open a kitchen drawer or a hall closet and every pencil, pen, and bobby pin I’ve ever lost will come tumbling out and I will die, because you guys, I lose a staggering number of writing utensils and bobby pins every day. For example, yesterday I very mindfully placed three new pens and five bobby pins in my purse. Today there are none. While I can’t say for sure that keeping a zippered pencil pouch in my purse would help remedy this problem, at the very least it would be cute.
