Katy Perry Makes One Hot Alien

Whoa. Katy Perry‘s look in the video for “ET” is even more convincingly alien than we’d originally thought. We won’t get to see the full vid until the 31st, but Katy posted this image—plus the two after the jump—on Facebook to give us a taste of her turquoise contacts, pink veiny forehead, and space-age fingernails. I’m kind of loving it. What do you think? Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: A 2-In-1 Product That Actually Works?

I’m always a little skeptical of 2-in-1 products; shampoos that are also conditioners rarely do either thing well — and leave hair feeling oily and tangled — so I didn’t have high hopes for Philip B’s lavender hair and body shampoo. But it turns out that even though it’s sodium lauryl sulfate- (SLS) free, the shampoo really lathers up nicely as both a body wash and a gentle shampoo. Why should you care if there’s SLS in your shampoos and body washes? SLS has been found to be an irritant to skin and has been known to cause problems for people with skin sensitivity, so it’s good to avoid it if you can. Plus, buying one product instead of two cuts down on environmental waste, and the pleasant and calming lavender scent doesn’t hurt, either. I might just have to learn to love the 2-in-1 thing a little more. [Philip B, $30] Keep reading »

Can Lindsay Join The Ranks Of One Name Wonders?

On Friday, we shared with you the very important news (VIN?) that Lindsay Lohan may soon be dropping her last name so that you can refer to her by one name and one name only: “Lindsay.” Perhaps because they’re so fed up with Michael Lohan’s antics, Dina shared with PopEater, “Lindsay is dropping the Lohan and just going by Lindsay. Me and Ali will be officially changing our last names back to my maiden name, Sullivan.” Apparently, Lindsay has been thinking of making herself into a single name entity for a while now—the thought was apparently sparked by that e-Trade commercial she sued over that referenced “that milkaholic Lindsay.” [PopEater] But can Lindsay make it as a one name wonder? After the jump, others who have done it.

Khloe Kardashian Wants Kris Humphries To Meet The Family

“I don’t think Kris knows what he’s getting into. He hasn’t been around all of us yet. He hasn’t been to my mom’s house with the chaos, so the initiation process will happen this summer—if he lasts. If he can get out of that alive, then he’s good to stay.”

Khloe Kardashian says she doesn’t know how Kim‘s boyfriend, Kris Humphries, will react to meeting the whole Kardashian clan. Hey, at least his first name already begins with a ‘K.’ He should fit right in. [People]

Georgia Police Officer Claims She Was Fired For Being Pregnant

Something is rotten in the state of Georgia: narcotics K-9 officer Ruth Hernandez was fired by the city of Thomsen, Georgia after getting pregnant.

According to WAGT-TV, Ruth Hernandez became pregnant with her second child and told her superiors that she couldn’t perform her duties until November 11 (eight months from now). Obviously if she is pregnant, it is ill-advised for her be in dangerous positions that cops can find themselves in. Fortunately, by federal law, if an employee cannot perform a duty because of a disability — which is how pregnancy is viewed by the law — the employer is supposed to try to find a similar job that he or she can do. For instance, Thomson, Georgia, was hiring for a secretary, which is a desk position, in its fire department. However, Ruth Hernandez says she was never offered the secretarial position. Nor did the city of Thomson offer her a leave. Instead, she was fired by Thomson PD, which said in a statement to WAGT, it was “unable to hold her position vacant for the length of time requested.” Her police car and her K-9 dog have been given to another officer and Ruth is now unemployed.
