Hazing: It’s not just for Chuck Bass at the Skull & Bones Society anymore! High school girls in New Jersey are now pretending they’re badasses by putting younger girls on a nasty “slut list.” The New York Times reported that catty seniors at Millburn High School in wealthy Millburn, New Jersey have circulated a “slut list” on which they scribble dozens of names of “pretty and popular” incoming freshman with “crass descriptions” on loose-leaf paper. The school principal, Dr. William Miron, said the tradition has taken place for over a decade, but this year hundreds of copies of the “slut list” written up by sports team members apparently made the rounds in the hallways. Why is the Times calling this “hazing”? This sounds like full-on bullying to me. Keep reading »

Chris Andersen’s biography of the Obamas, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, comes out today, and in it he dishes on a lot more than the first couple’s date night. According to Andersen, women are constantly rubbing up against Barack, slipping him their digits, and whispering suggestive comments in his ear. “On more than one occasion, Barack tried not to look startled when some random woman in the crowd would grasp him firmly by the derriere — and sometimes try to hold on,” writes Andersen. After one rally on the campaign trail, Barack supposedly said, “Jesus, I wish they’d stop grabbing my ass.” Keep reading »
In this striking set from the October issue of Vogue UK, Mario Testino rounds up Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Lily Donaldson for an homage to the history of fashion across the pond. The ladies model Vivienne Westwood and the Union Jack alongside the Queen’s guardsmen. The Sid-and-Nancy look could beat up the Twiggy look any day of the week. After the jump, a few more shots from the land of bangers and mash. Keep reading »
It’s the first day of fall (at 5:18 p.m. to be exact), which means it’s jacket time. But much to our dismay, we’ve noticed that most of the jackets we’re seeing on the street lately are full-on winter weight rather than the ideal fall weight. Most people, you see, have a gaping hole in their wardrobes when it comes to fall jackets. We can sympathize.
A fun trench like the one above is perfect all through October and probably even parts of November. Your down-filled North Face is not! [$128, Latte by Coffee Shop, Nordstrom]
Checking out those crazy shoes? Now just look up a bit, a bit more … ahh! The offender! Hippie hair on model legs! Normally, we’d shrug and say your choice (maybe not the wisest one for your profession) to those who prefer to grow it rather than mow it, but this was spotted at the Proenza Schouler runway show at New York Fashion Week, where the freshly-waxed legs of models shine like the top of the Chrysler Building. On purpose or laziness? Yesterday we discussed the all-bare bikini area trend, so maybe the opposite is now going for legs. It’s so hard to keep up.
We’re not sure—this insider-y snap was the only evidence we could find. Many of the other Proenza Schouler models sported tights. However, the collection did happen to have quite a few feather and fringe details. Artistic compatibility? [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »
Kim Zolciak‘s song “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party,” which was recorded during an episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” has been removed from iTunes because producer Don Vito still owns the copyright to the song and hasn’t been paid yet for Kim’s studio time. The song was number three on iTunes for four days last week, according to a source who spoke with E! Online. Kim’s rep had no comment, but Don Vito (he doesn’t have one of those first names that sounds right without the last name) only had pleasant things to say about Kim (unlike that other producer Dallas Austin): “I think [Kim] is a good person and it was fun working in the studio with her. We made a great record and I look forward to working with her on the album again.” [E! Online] Keep reading »
Most guys look at Cosmopolitan magazine the same way that women tend to look at Maxim — as a ridiculous, over-the-top, hyperbole-filled look at sex that has no bearing on actual real-life relationships.
Yet, men still read Maxim (or look at it and grunt), and women still revel in Cosmo‘s softcore porn-filled pages. But while many of Cosmo‘s columns are relatively harmless, the “Things to Try In Bed” features are occasionally so far off track that they threaten to ruin relationships and mental health.
From a guy’s perspective, here’s a look at a few of Cosmo‘s most insane, useless sexual tips and why you should never try them, after the jump. Keep reading »
Speaking of politician butts, did you ever want to see Tom Delay shake his? Well, your dreams have finally come true. On last night’s premiere of “Dancing with the Stars,” the men of the competition showed their moves. Aaron Carter was clearly the best, but we think that’s cheating since he’s under the age of 50 and has a boy band background. UFC fighter Chuck Lidell took the award for Awkwardest Expression Whilst Salsaing. But it was Delay who stole our hearts with his performance of “Wild Thing,” thanks to his lip syncing, knee sliding, and just generally making everything groovy. Check it out, above. Tonight, the women perform. Go Melissa Joan Hart! Keep reading »
So, Khloe Kardashian is getting married this Sunday to brand-new boyfriend/fiancé Lamar Odom. Raise your hand if you think she’s knocked up. Everyone? That’s what I thought. If Khloe is with child, she is following in the grand footsteps of big sis Kourtney, who found out she was pregnant earlier this summer and is now engaged to the baby’s father. Is it just me, or is this totes retro? Accidental pregnancy? A super speedy marriage is the answer to all your problems! Khloe and Kourtney would hardly be alone. Ashlee Simpson married Pete Wentz then disclosed that she was pregnant with his child. So did Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, as well as Christina Milian and The Dream. I gotta say, and maybe this is because I’m not much of a traditionalist, but if I found out I was pregs and was going to keep the baby, I wouldn’t necessarily rush to the altar, even if I was in love with the father. What about you? Keep reading »
