Everyone Needs A Candy Bra


I’m not exactly sure what to say about this Loco Mama video, except this song is kind of stuck in my head right now. It’s an ode to the candy bra, which Regis Philbin got Kelly Ripa for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Is Jessica Simpson Writing A Dirty Tell-All?

Oh, Jessica Simpson. The word on the street is that Simpson is planning to write a tell-all about her life, from her lovahs to her “love luggage” (her weight issues). Jessica, can’t you join a global cause and put your energy into that? If she’d learned anything from her past relationship snafus, she would know that she needs to find herself and stop defining herself through men. After the jump, the dirty deets on Tony Romo, John Mayer, Dane Cook, and Jude Law (yes, Jude Law) that Jessica is allegedly putting in her book.

“America’s Next Top Shorty” Contestants Announced

Wanna be on top? Well, these girls certainly do. The CW has released the names and photos of the 14 women who’ll be competing in cycle 13 of “America’s Next Top Model.” At this point, the show has gotten pretty formulaic. We know there’ll be a makeover episode where pounds of mascara will be washed away by tears. We know Tyra will demonstrate to the ladies how to smile with their eyes. We know that some fool will be late back to home base after the go-see challenge. But Tyra is shaking things up a bit this season on her super-popular vanity project modeling show. Only women who are between 5’2″ and 5’7″ were allowed to audition. In other words, they’re shorties, which is semi-revolutionary, since the fashion industry usually turns their back on anyone under 5’9″. Another big change? Paulina Porizkova won’t be sitting on the judge’s panel. Perhaps Kate Moss will be her replacement? Keep reading »

Calvin Harris Plays “Humanthesizer” Made Out Of Girls In Bikinis

Calvin Harris is one lucky guy. Or one incredibly weird one. In this video, the Scottish electro-pop musician creates what he calls a “Humanthesizer” to play his new single, “Ready For The Weekend” (his upcoming album drops on the 17th). Using a body paint that conducts electricity, he coated the hands and feet of about a dozen girls in bikinis. It would seem that paint, when in contact with another electrical conductor (like a painted hand or base), activates sounds. Dividing the scantily-clad girls into musical sections — piano, drums, bass, and synthesizer — Harris plays the song by slapping the ladies’ hands. It’s bizarre — and kind of incredible.

The Mouse House Is Too Cheesy For The Diary of Anne Frank Or Any Literature Classic

Disney is teaming up with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet to make a movie out of The Diary of Anne Frank. Seeing the words “Disney” and “Anne Frank” in the same sentence seems a little strange to me. They know this one doesn’t end with the prince and princess living happily ever after, right? Hopefully, Disney is going live-action and not looking to cast Miley Cyrus in the lead. [Variety] It may be too late for Anne Frank, but here are a few other classics we’d advise Disney to stay away from. Keep reading »

Now You Can Blame Your Jealousy On Facebook

I’ve seen some things on Facebook that I wish I hadn’t. Last night, I was cruising my homepage when some pictures of my ex popped up in my newsfeed. We broke up years ago, so I thought to myself, “Why not? You can look. Who cares?” Apparently, I do. When I saw the pics of him and his girlfriend looking madly in love, I became insanely jealous. WTF? I’ve been over this guy for forever, so why was I so upset? Well, blame it on Facebook. According to a new study, the more time one spends on Facebook, the more likely she is to feel jealous toward her romantic partners, leading to more time on Facebook searching for additional information to fuel the jealousy. It’s an escalating cycle that may become addictive. So, I’m restricting my Facebook usage, lest I become like that girl who sent crazy emails to her BF while he was away in Europe. [Eureka Alert]

After the jump, cautionary tales of Facebook-inspired jealousy. Keep reading »

The “Mad Men” Drinking Game

It’s “Mad Men” mania over here at TheFrisky. The only way we could possibly overdose is by playing this drinking game. Round up some friends for the season premiere on Sunday night and see if you can keep up with the characters. If you want to class things up, take a cue from the set’s self-described “Alcohol Department,” which told the New York Times that the painstakingly accurate cocktails imbibed on the show include martinis, rusty nails, Tom Collinses, and vodka gimlets. You can also check out AMC’s 1960s Cocktail Guide. After the jump, the rules. Keep reading »
