How Not To Make An Online Dating Video

In what has to be a comedic interpretation of a “bad” video dating profile, single gal Debbie executes the worst eHarmony profile of all time. There’s a lot to be learned from watching Debbie self-destruct on video. Namely, if you’d like to get a date, don’t cry about cats before you’ve met your suitors in person. Actually, don’t cry about cats in person either. You may want to save that for the third date or oh, NEVER. [Viddler] Keep reading »

You Are Cordially Invited To Jack White And Karen Elson’s Divorce Party

“We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”

— I will never understand why celeb couples feel obligated to release public statements about their breakups. At least Karen Elson and Jack White are (amicably?) going out with a bang. Does a couple get to register for a divorce party, too? [Pitchfork] Keep reading »

Russell Crowe Waxes Philosophic On Circumcision

“Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect … I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats but stop cutting yr babies … I will always stand for the perfection of babies, i will always believe in God, not man’s interpretation of what God requires … last of it, if u feel it is yr right 2 cut things off yr babies please unfollow and f**k off, I’ll take attentive parenting over barbarism.”

Russell Crowe gets Twitter-happy on the issue of circumcision. Tell us how you really feel about it, Russell. Your Jewish friends with the funny hats are dying to know more about your hardcore circumcision beliefs. This morning Russell released a half-assed apology for his foreskin outburst saying, “[I] wasn’t intending offense, certainly wasn’t intending to provide fodder for lazy journalists. I can’t apologize for my heartfelt belief … I have a deep and abiding love for all people of all nationalities, I’m very sorry that I have said things on here that have caused distress … I realize that some will interpret this debate as me mocking the rituals and traditions of others. I am very sorry.” This lazy journalist accepts your apology based on your deep and abiding love for me. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Watch 9-Year-Old Boy “Vogue” His Heart Out In 1991


Only in my wildest dreams would I unearth an old VHS tape from my mom’s storage unit and find evidence of my youthful spunk that is this fantastic. Above, 9-year-old Robert Jeffrey, performing Madonna’s “Vogue” in 1991. Adult Robert Jeffrey explains: “My parents took me to Hampton Beach Casino in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. A business in the casino at the time gave tourists the chance to lip-synch to their favorite pop songs in front of a blue screen background, and I was lucky enough to partake that summer.” And now, thanks to the internet and Robert’s generosity, so are we. TGIF! [Popdust] Keep reading »

My Own Private Britney

The following essay originally appeared on The Fix, an excellent blog about addiction and recovery. It’s lengthy — but amazing! — so we’ve re-posted it in slideshow form. When Britney Spears was shooting the video for her recent single, “Till the World Ends,” her backup dancers were required to sign a non-disclosure agreement that was promptly leaked to the press. Included in the document was the following clause: “Contractor acknowledges that it is essential that [Britney] not be exposed to any alcohol, drugs, or controlled substances.” Ironic, given that the lyrics of the song—“See the sunlight, we ain’t stopping, keep on dancing till the world ends”—sound more like a description of a meth-fueled circuit party than the mantra of a woman whose considers her sobriety paramount. (It is worth noting that the song was co-written by slut-wave princess Ke$ha, who has built her career on a platform of ironic alcoholism.) The song’s apocalyptic delusions aside, the message was clear: If you have any drugs, leave Britney alone.
