Miley’s Little Sis, Noah, Sure Looks Mature This Halloween

Behold 9-year-old Noah Cyrus! Far be it from us to slut-shame a fourth grader, but would it kill ol’ Billy Ray and Tish to insist she be a little girl for just a while longer? It’s not too hard to say, “No, you’re not dressing as a sexy witch with dominatrix boots for Halloween!” Because God knows after pole-dancing at the Teen Choice Awards, Miley‘s childhood is a lost cause.

365 Days In Paris: Two Players In A Three-Person Game

I barely felt anything about breaking up with Mr. Cupid until a few days ago. Being back to my old life was great. No more obligations in the evening. Nights slept in my own (much prettier) bed. No more stressing about whatever next “surprise” Cupid would do, that would scare me into thinking his next one would be proposing marriage.

Yet, while I am totally glad we’re over, I did feel a momentary pang of sadness a few days ago, not so much about him, but about the disappointment in not having something be what you want it to be. Why couldn’t he just be a bit more driven and mature? All the things I want in a Frenchman I think I now see in all the couples who get in my way by making out in the middle of the sidewalk while accordions play and kids in berets skip around with ice cream cones.

I’ve completely abandoned online dating. If anyone asked me two months ago about what the difference between online dating in NYC and in France is, I would have said, “Well, in New York, a lot of people do it. And the stigma has really loosened up. France is where NYC was five years ago, so I’m positive that things will turn around with the handful of dating sites here.” Now if you asked me this question, I’d say, “If a guy in Paris is doing online dating, something is wrong with him.” Sorry. But the selection is weak. Keep reading »

Get Well Soon, Morrissey

Even though he’s celibate and we don’t get that, we at The Frisky are big, huge, enormous fans of Morrissey, the frontman of The Smiths and the swashbuckling-with-a-wink crooner behind nine solo albums. The first time I saw him, after 45 minutes of singing, a crazed fan ran on stage and hugged him. At which point Morrissey said, “Thank security,” walked off stage, and never came back. Yes, it sucked. But not nearly as much as his show Saturday night when, after singing only one song (“This Charming Man,” cause I know you were wondering)—he winced and fell to his knees. His band mates carried him off stage unconscious, and the paramedics were called. Because many people have witnessed antics like I did, they thought this was just his usual theatrics and booed. But when Morrissey didn’t return to the stage and an announcement was made that he was seriously ill and the concert was dunzo, the fans got super concerned. Morrissey was taken to the hospital and stayed there overnight, a “precautionary measure,” as the hospital put it. He was released the next morning and is said to be feeling much better, though he did cancel tonight’s concert, too. Morrissey, we hope you feel 100 percent soon and that this was exhaustion rather than something serious. Heaven knows we’ll be miserable if you’re really sick. Sorry, had to.

Michelle Obama Is Too Cute For Words On “Jay Leno”

How cute is Michelle Obama? She hobnobs with the Queen and the Pope, but via satellite on “The Jay Leno Show” this past Friday night, she owned up to being nervous appearing on live TV. (We think she did fine!) The First Lady plugged a support-the-troops PSA she filmed with Jill Biden and stuck around to impress the nation with her expert “Brady Bunch” knowledge. After the jump, Michelle dishes about first puppy Bo‘s fancy-pants first birthday party

10 Leggings You’ll Love For Fall

We definitely love tights, but sometimes those thin little things just don’t cut it when the wind is howling and we’re wishing for death or a cozy bed, whichever comes first. But since the real world beckons and slinking home to hide in bed is more or less frowned upon, we’ve had to improvise, taking in every little bit of added warmth we can. In the leg region, the best way to one-up tights without actually wearing pants is, of course, leggings. Check out these sweet-ass options. [$40, American Apparel]

RIP: Shiloh Pepin, “Mermaid Girl”


Heartbreaking news: Shiloh Pepin, the 10-year-old girl who was born with a rare condition commonly known as “mermaid syndrome,” passed away this weekend. I first learned about Shiloh by watching a special on Discovery Health about her life and was blown away by her spirit. Her condition, “sirenomelia,” caused her to be born with her legs fused together — she had no colon or genital organs and only one partially working kidney. Still, Shiloh was full of life and never seemed to feel sorry for herself, despite her daily struggles. May she rest in peace. [AP] Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Ivanka Trump Says “I Do!”

  • Ivanka Trump wed Jared Kushner at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ, on Sunday. [Starpulse]
  • Chris Brown is still pining for Rihanna. He posted a video montage of him with her and tweeted: “FOR THE FELLAS: Showing emotion doesn’t make u weak … BEING HONEST MAKES U STRONG.” [The Young, Black, & Fabulous] — He’s not someone I’d take advice from, but, you know, to each his own.
  • Stephen Moyer says he looked to his “True Blood” character when deciding how to propose to Anna Paquin. Apparently, there’s a song Bill Compton listens to about a white, sandy beach, so that’s where it happened. [People] — That idea could have been inspired by anything because it’s not really original. Let’s hope the wedding is more interesting.

Does Shopping Make You Feel Guilty?

The retail industry is getting pretty desperate these days—how many more special events and functions will we see that scream “Oooo! Please, please come shop in our store!” According to the Wall Street Journal, the latest tactic in trying to woo the recessionary customer is to assuage shoppers’ guilt.

In some cases, this goes straight to the point instead of tip-toeing around the you shouldn’t be spending atmosphere. Take, perhaps, the best example out there, Gilt Groupe, a sample sale website (and admitted Frisky obsession) whose name is a play on the word “guilt.” The site’s co-founder, Alexis Maybank, explains that now retailers like her are placing emphasis on battling this new culture of consumer guilt: “It used to be about keeping up with the Joneses, and now it’s about outsaving the Joneses … We need to encourage people to get excited about fashion.” Gilt’s short-timed sales have set off a wave of similar online initiatives, which rev up shoppers and distract them from negative feelings.

Levi Doesn’t Know Whether He’ll Show His Johnston

I know you’re all sitting on the edge of your seats waiting to see whether Levi Johnston, Sarah Palin’s grandbaby-daddy, is gonna go full frontal in his upcoming Playgirl spread, but I have some bad news: you’re going to have to wait a little longer. Levi tells Star magazine he hasn’t yet decided whether he’ll show his johnston or not. “I don’t know. I’m going to decide that on the fly. I want to keep it classy. I don’t want to do something I’ll regret.” Oh, come on, Levi, why start worrying about regret, now? Asked what his ex-fiance and mother of his baby, Bristol Palin, thinks about his Playgirl shoot, Levi replied: “We don’t really talk anymore,” before quickly adding, “except about the baby, my son. That’s about it.” [via NY Daily News]
