Study Proves Kids Today Just Want To Be Famous

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a veterinarian. And then a firefighter. Then a marine biologist. Then a screenwriter. But according to a study of 3,000 kids in the U.K., today’s pre-teens have very, very different goals: Twelve percent want to be sports stars; eleven percent want to be pop stars; and 11 percent want to be famous actors. That means that more than a third of kids today want to live the lifestyle of the rich and famous. And while there’s sure to still be a lot of reality TV slots available when they come of age, what’s gonna happen when this fame thing doesn’t pan out for 99 percent of them—are we going to have an entire generation in therapy because the paparazzi isn’t stalking their every move? After the jump, see how today’s kids’ career goals stack up against those of 25 years ago. And chime in on whether you think we’re going to hell in a handbasket or not.

Padma Lakshmi & 9 Other Surprise Celebrity Pregnancies

padma lakshmi 100209 m jpg
If you thought Padma Lakshmi had just put on a few from eating all that gourmet food week after week, guess again. (Ha. Like you could really tell.) The “Top Chef” hostess is busy preparing for her next role—as top mom. Although she’s not spilling the caviar about the identity of the baby daddy (could it be her current boyfriend Manu Nathanan?), she is calling this surprise pregnancy a “miracle.” Why? Padma has struggled with infertility due to endometriosis. [Celebitchy]

Congrats Padma! I wonder if she’ll have to give up hosting the show? Bringing a baby to a Michelin-rated restaurant is kind of poor form. After the jump, 10 more celebrity pregnancies that shocked the pants diapers off us.

Poor Babies: Celebrities Who Tweet From Their Sick Beds!

Tori Spelling has been in and out of the hospital all week, complaining of severe abdominal pain. Apparently, seeking treatment has brought no relief, or even a conclusive diagnosis. I know this because her husband, Dean McDermott, has been keeping me posted 140 alphanumeric characters at a time. Tweeting about going to the hospital seems a surprising way to handle stress when a loved one is ill—at first. When I went back further into Dean’s twitter history I noticed he’d had an unspeakably unpleasant flu virus earlier this month. I noticed because he squawked, I mean tweeted, about his own discomfort more than he tweeted about Tori’s. To be fair, several tweets were concern for the health of his family, as he started his own recovery. There was something familiar, though, about the progression of these sick celebrity tweets. Has it become a celebrity trend to tweet health updates to concerned fans? After the jump, five more cases of celebrities tweeting their sickness. Keep reading »

Over-The-Shoulder Boulder Scarves

Do your boobs hang low, do they wobble to and fro? Can you tie ‘em in a knot, can you tie ‘em in a bow?

We would certainly hope not. (And if they do, we’d advise you to look into a little thing called plastic surgery. Kidding.) Unless, of course, you’re all about flaunting low-slung boobage, then some boob scarves will be right up your alley. Another oddity from the land of Japan, these neck warmers feature nipple-adorned cushions at the ends. Most of the designs come in white with a graphic embellishment that looks like a floral tattoo. There’s also a green scarf with matching neon nipples (for clients with alien-sex fetishes?).

Riiiight … well, if you got it flaunt it? We’re just not sure what would be worse—a man or a woman flaunting this fashion “moment”? (Shiver) [Lost At E Minor]

Would You Pay Over $100 For Cute Mittens?

The first sign of cold, and we’re already eagerly scoping out winter goods. (We know. It can be a problem.) So we were smitten when we came across these Steven Alan mittens—the perfect cute-combo with their fingerless gloves, cozy-looking cashmere, and cool metallic leather. Even the name is rad: Glittens!

But alas, the $128 price tag cast a harsh frostbite over our find. Sure, when it comes to a winter coat, it’s natural to invest some bones … but justifying the idea of gloves as an investment piece? Not so sure.

Would you spring for (or ahem, fall in this case), these “Glittens”? [StevenAlan.com] Keep reading »

Loving “Mad Men”: More Ways to Overdose on 1963

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, it was the time of Don and Betty Draper from “Mad Men.” A stylish time of men in hats and suits and when people dressed up to go to the mall. A time before the hippies ruined everything with peace, love, patchouli, and beards. Here are a few ways to teleport yourself back without the hassle of building a teleporter…

Food Habits, First Dates, And What It Means for Love

There are roughly one million thoughts and worries swarming through our heads on a first date. Is this a good match? Was that story I told funny-weird or just weird? And if the date takes place at a restaurant, the anxiety increases tenfold. Do I have food in my teeth? Did I order too little/too much? However, there’s an upside to having that first outing center on food—it could indicate whether a second date’s in the future. Keep reading »
