Great news for all you folks who were terrified that you’d have to wait until the spring to read Sarah Palin‘s memoir—HarperCollins has decided to move the release date to November 17. [Happy Birthday, Me! -- Editor] That’s right, pitbull hockey moms, only two months and 18 days until you can read it! The book now also has a title, Going Rogue: An American Life, a nod to what a McCain aide said she was doing during last year’s election. Palin collaborated on the book with World editor Lynn Vincent, and reportedly reeled in $7 million smackeroos for her effort. She said she felt it was important to tell her own story since “there have been so many things written and said through mainstream media that have not been accurate.” Though I think it’d be pretty funny if it turned out to be sci-fi/fantasy with her as the star.

Just when “Circus” and “Womanizer” lost all their appeal, Britney Spears
debuted a brand-new single this morning on the Elvis Duran Show on Z100 at 7 a.m. Because that’s just the time we all want to hear dance music? Anyway, this song is called “3″ and it’s off her greatest hits compilation, “The Singles Collection,” which will be in stores in November. Enjoy, and start speculating what it’s about.

Perhaps you’ve heard the exciting rumors that the team behind the “Real Housewives” franchise has been working on a new all-gay version of the show. Well, apparently, it’s really going to happen … and soon! Casting will start in the next couple weeks and creators hope to begin production in November. The show is tentatively titled “Kept” and will air on the MTV-owned all-gay channel, Logo. It will focus on the lives of wealthy and fabulous gay playboys in Manhattan who love to party it up at the hottest clubs and swankiest parties. If you thought rich housewives could be drama, just wait till you see men who have flatirons and know how to use them. Keep reading »
American Apparel: the store people either love to hate or hate to love. As for us, we go back and forth, at times comically appalled by its hijinks and shenanigans, other times in love with its new fashions. Shopping at American Apparel can feel like a guilty pleasure—you know you’re buying into hipster culture, yet you’re going to be just as happy to purchase the same zip-up hoodie that everyone else has.
Then there’s this, which does make us question the company’s true moral barometer. (Even though the latest scandal involved an ad which looked like teenage porn, the model was 23 — so, there’s no real legal encroachment there.) While the kids line is nothing new, these leg warmer items and the little one wearing them are. Seriously? That girl is practically a toddler and already practicing her Playboy poses.

Love to read Craigslist’s Missed Connections and have a thing for dreamy illustrations? Have I got the blog for you!

A few of my favorites above and after the jump… [MissedConnectionsNY] Keep reading »

Forgetful Franny? Here’s one way to never lose a shopping list or draw a blank again: To-Do Tattoos, temporaries that stick a lined form on your hand so you can fill in details and take them with you. Or, at least, if you’re the type to write crap on your hands anyhow, now you can be more organized about it. The pack of 12 tattoos also comes with a skin-safe, washable pen for you to write your notes with whether it’s groceries, stuff to do at work, or your five-year plan.
Of course, there are a few other places we could think of slapping a to-do list … other than your hands. In case someone else is forgetting some important details. [WorldWideFred.com] Keep reading »
Paging all Madonnaphiles! The Daily Beast has gone through the trouble of rounding up the “9 Sexiest Madonna Videos” of all time. Some of their picks are spot-on — “Like a Virgin,” “Justify My Love,” “Like a Prayer.” But other choices are downright weird — “Ray of Light” never struck me as particularly sexy. The most notably absent sexy Madonna video? “Human Nature.” You’d think being chained to a chair, spanking a dog, and wearing a latex bikini would count for something in a woman’s career.

“I wasn’t nervous because I’d got my body and mind into shape for it. My aim is to become an iconic sex symbol and the Playboy shoot is the first step. I wanted to be toned and curvaceous with a nice butt–I didn’t want to lose weight and look skinny.”
— Heidi Montag speaks to U.K.’s Closer magazine about her plan to become an iconic sex symbol. We believe she got her body in shape, but what do you think she did to get her “mind” in shape for the shoot? In the same interview, Heidi went on to say she wants to supersize her size C breasts to DD cup. It’s all part of her plan to take over the world! [via Closer] Keep reading »
