Aubrey O’Day Takes On New Order


New Order’s amazing “Bizarre Love Triangle” is one of the most-covered songs of all time. I was down with Frente’s acoustic take on it for that movie “Threesome” forever ago. But I dunno about Aubrey O’Day‘s new version, which throws out the old lyrics and makes it all about how she’s media roadkill. Sample lyric: “Everytime they see us fallin’, they get down on their knees and hate.” Uh, no wonder Diddy kicked her out of Danity Kane? Keep reading »

1971 Reiss Hearts Women Who Rock

London label Reiss is launching 1971, a secondary line of thigh-zippering jeans, shearling jackets, and studded boots inspired by women who rock. With denim names like the “Patti” after Patti Smith, the collection is an amalgam of everything an off-duty Kristen Stewart type would want to wear. Provided, of course, she decided to clean up a smidge. Check out the whole collection here. Keep reading »

Want An Elle Internship? Put “Homeless” On Your Resume!

Maybe sleeping in the doorway is the best way to get your foot in the door? It worked for Bri, a blogger who was living in a Wal-Mart parking lot. A few months back, she auditioned for a reality show for aspiring advice columnists where the winner would receive an internship at Elle with their longtime advice disher, E. Jean. Too bad Bri completely bombed the audition, and, of course, blogged about it. She decided to write her sob story directly to E. Jean. Jean was so moved by her letter that she responded in her monthly column. In it, she offered Bri an internship with her! In the mag, Jean opined, “At the end of the four months, if you don’t have a job and an awesome place to live, I will become your intern.” We’re looking forward to finding out which Bri finds more unpleasant — homelessness or interning at a fashion magazine.

Quick Pic: The Real Giving Tree

This 60-foot tree recently sprouted a weird fruit: an apple bottom. The barked badonkadonk has become quite the tourist attraction Down Under, garnering it the nickname “The Bum Tree.” Ha! [Lismore, New South Wales, Australia, 8/24/09] Keep reading »

Cougars Hit The High Seas!

The only thing cougars love more than the younger men they prey upon is a cruise. Now they can have both because the first-ever Cougar Cruise has arrived! Sponsored by the Singles Travel Company and the Society of Single Professionals, the Cougar Cruise welcomes cougars and their cubs to come aboard from December 4-7. The ship will depart from San Diego, CA and head for the exotic waters of Ensenada, Mexico. Wait … the cruise is only going 70 miles? Well, whatever, the cougs won’t notice; they’ll be so distracted by the scenery on board. The boat has an even bigger mission — fighting discrimination! Keep reading »

Could Ashley Olsen Ever “Quit” Fashion?

Are the Olsens experiencing “fashion fatigue”? Yesterday, we saw how Mary-Kate has been looking more hobo than boho. Now Ashley, the more serious style maven of the two, admits she may be looking to leave the fashion world and her luxury line, The Row. According to HollyScoop.com, Ashley recently stated:

“(In the fashion world) everyone is just really looking out for themselves. I don’t know if I’ll be designing this collection forever. A couple of years from now, I’m sure I’ll want to do something else, and I’m not going to shy away from that. What if I just want to be an artist, or if I want to go back to acting? Which is not in the cards, but what if I wanted to do that?”

Sounds to us like Ashley may just be a bit worn down, and we don’t blame her! (Managing a clothing label, all the other Olsen properties, and heaving around a venti Starbucks latte 24/7 must be exhausting.) But let’s face facts—even if Ashley were to “leave” fashion, she’d have to fall off the face of the earth. Ashley is already too great a style icon to stop influencing trends, even if she stops producing the clothes you can buy to rock those trends. [Wait, do you guys consider Ashley a "style icon"? Personally, I do not, but maybe that's just me? -- Editor] [HollyScoop.com]

Chuck Bass To Kiss A Man In Upcoming “Gossip Girl” Episode

Many of us have long suspected that despite his womanizing ways, Chuck Bass may not actually be interested in the ladies. How many high school guys do you know (besides “NYC Prep” co-star PC) who can pull off a scarf? Well, Chuck at least tries men on for size in the upcoming season. According to EW.com’s Ausiello Files, several insiders have confirmed the cast is currently shooting an episode in which Ed Westwick kisses Neal Bledsoe, who is guest-starring as “Josh Ellis,” NYU’s head of freshman affairs. College is a time for experimentation, after all. [EW] Keep reading »

You’ve Got An STD, Bro? That’s So Cool!

Possibly ruining my appreciation for the noble Swedes and their fine IKEA meatballs, a recent study has found that Swedish men with STDs think their infection is an affirmation of their manliness.

University of Skovde researcher Kina Hammarlund interviewed an unknown group of 16- to 30-year-old men and women for her dissertation and discovered it was only male participants who put on rose-colored glasses, seeing STDs like genital warts or gonorrhea as a rite of passage to manhood. It’s a telling statement about sexuality that men viewed STDs as something positive about their manhood, while women didn’t think it said anything about their womanhood. STDs could imply, even erroneously, that a guy is kind of a stud. But it’s hard to believe anyone would be proud of an STD. Could this study be bulls**t? [The Local via Feministing] Keep reading »

Crave: Normal Watches

Sure to be this generation’s answer to the Swatch, Normal Watches come in an array of candy colors and feature timely graphics and quotes, like “Facebook Ruined My Life,” “I’m So Gay For Marriage,” and the sadly true “When Did Rock ‘N’ Roll Become So F***ing Boring?” We might even have to make an exception on our no bubblegum pink rule so we can don this cool “I Want Candy” watch. Read the “entirely true” story of how the company started and just try to resist. [$17.98, Joe Rockhead via Outblush] Keep reading »
