American Sex Ed Sucks, Says Elton John

“The stigma [around HIV/AIDS] hasn’t gone away after 30 years, and young people are still getting infected. We can’t get to the young people in this country because it’s very conservative and you can’t get into schools to teach people about sex. We can in Africa, but we can’t seem to over here. With young people, the infection rates rise and until you inform people and make this disease a non-stigmatized thing, you’re never going to have any change and we’re batting our heads against a brick wall. We need to get into schools.”

Elton John, blabbing about sex education at his Oscars bash this weekend, makes more sense when he talks than the entire religious right and their “abstinence only” nonsense. Bristol Palin, listen to the crazy gay Brit who wears the silly costumes! [Fox 411] Keep reading »

I Went On A Blind Date With Charlie Sheen

Anna Goldfarb at the blog Shmitten Kitten has an active imagination. This post originally appeared on her blog. Enjoy!

Charlie Sheen is a nutjob so I used his real quotes and imagined we were on a blind date. Enjoy:

Me: Thanks for meeting me here. I’ve heard good things about this place.

Charlie: I’m still alive, which is pretty cool.

Me: Yeah, it is. Janet told me a lot of things about you. Most of it was good. (laughs nervously)

Charlie: I have a 10,000-year-old brain and the boogers of a seven-year-old. Keep reading »

Kate Winslet Was Called “Blubber” As A Kid

“[I was called "blubber"] between the ages of 8 and 11. Looking back on it, I really wasn’t that heavy. I was just stockier than the other sporty, whippy-looking kids. … You know, I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me — and it was such a backhanded comment — they would say, ‘You’ve got such a beautiful face,’ in the way of, like, ‘Oh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.’”

Kate Winslet, Oscar winner and great beauty (IMHO), was no stranger to unkind comments, but she has a super-healthy attitude towards her body as an adult. Kate told Glamour she works out to Pilates DVDs, cooks chicken nearly every night and has no plans to get Botox or plastic surgery. How strangely refreshing! [Glamour] Keep reading »

Penthouse Launches 3D Porn Channel In Europe

Damn, Europe gets all the good stuff, like a Wii game about spanking and much-anticipated 3D porn. Waaaahhh! Yesterday Penthouse, the esteemed shameless smut rag, launched a high definition 3D channel, which runs from 11 p.m to 5 a.m. and promises 30 hours of new hardcore and softcore pornography a month. Hustler is expected to launch a 3D adult channel later this month as well … which probably means Charlie Sheen will never leave the house ever again. I never though I would say this, Penthouse and Hustler, but thank you.

Forget the “price upon request” ball gowns and million dollar borrowed jewels. When Natalie Portman got dressed for Vanity Fair‘s Oscar party, she picked this $49.95 H&M frock rather than a pricey one. Which I personally think is pretty awesome.
