I’m sitting alone in my apartment on a rainy night. I’m restless, mildly bored, and, yes, I’ll admit it, but please don’t tell anyone … lonely. It’s days like this that I’m sure that there’s no more love in store for me — all of the epically momentous possibilities must have already passed me by. Somehow I blinked and missed them. It’s in moments like this that I allow myself the small indulgence of thinking about Sebastian.
Our story had all of the makings of a great love story. Once upon a time we met one evening in a dark, crowded party. He told me I was beautiful. I was young enough for him to appear larger than life. We kissed on the sidewalk in the rain. I fell hard for him — hard like scrape-me-off-the-floor-with-a-spatula hard. But we were wrong for each other in every way. We were young, immature, and troubled. It ended tragically – Sebastian stood me up on a cold, snowy New Year’s Eve and the two of us never spoke again. I went on with my life. Keep reading »
World-famous supermodel Claudia Schiffer probably couldn’t look bad if she tried, but she’s making some rather, um, bold choices today, no? [London, 9/14/09] Keep reading »
One dude is going to extreme lengths to stop himself from masturbating. Brian “Head” Welch, who used to play guitar is that awful band KoRn (yeah, I said it!) and is already heavily tattooed, has gotten JESUS tattooed across his knuckles so he’s deterred from playing his own instrument. How not metal. He explains:
“The Jesus tattoo on my hand keeps me from masturbating and I haven’t been with a woman since my ex-wife left me almost five years ago. I go to those extremes to be like Christ and it works for me.”
Now I know as well as anyone how hard it can be to get over a bad breakup, but seriously? [Needles And Sins]

Last week everyone was all abuzz about Melanie Oudin, the 17-year-old kicking butt at the U.S. Open. Turns out, we got excited about the wrong underdog. Yesterday, unranked Kim Clijsters sealed the deal on the U.S. Open women’s title. Kim was ranked numero uno in the world a few years back, and won the U.S. Open in 2005. But in 2007, she got hitched, retired from tennis, and popped out a baby. Earlier this year, she was invited to play an exhibition game at Wimbledon’s Centre Court, and had such a blast that she decided to come out of retirement. She went into the U.S. Open not expected to do very well but rocked her first few matches. People started really paying attention to her when she knocked out Venus Williams. Next, she took out Serena in the now-infamous game where Serena exchanged words with a line judge. (By the way, Serena was officially fined $10,500 for the incident over the weekend.) When she pounded Caroline Wozniacki in the finals, Kim became the first mama to win the tournament since 1980. Kim, thanks for showing us that we can do it all. And by “all” I mean raising a baby while perfecting a mean backhand. [CNN] Keep reading »

Maybe it’s that I was drinking—no, chugging—the Fashion’s Night Out Kool-Aid the other night, but, gotta say, getting out and about and shopping felt pretty damn good, though not in a “I’m slapping down my credit card” way. Anyways, I wasn’t the only one who turned up at H&M’s Herald Square store. Miss J. Alexander of “America’s Next Top Model” also attended. But he (or if you ask some of Miss J. superfans, whom I had the pleasure of meeting in the “ANTM” trenches — “she”) had more on her night’s agenda than just riffling through the racks for the perfect, red winter coat. (Though there were loads of people on line for the cash register with armloads of clothes!) Miss J. was giving runway strutting lessons. Man, did people just eat it up. The line to get some catwalking tips was—I kid you not—out the door and down the street. It was madness — sheer lunacy!
So how do you rock your thang down a runway? After the jump, a bunch of tips from the catwalk vet—and a few photos of her doing what she does best. Keep reading »
Some people tuned in to the MTV Video Music Awards for the Michael Jackson
tribute, to see Janet Jackson belt out “Scream.” Others tuned in for Beyoncé
‘s “Single Ladies” dance number or to see Lady Gaga
‘s insane wardrobe choices. But let’s face it: a high proportion of last night’s viewership tuned in to see MTV’s exclusive trailer for “New Moon
,” which premiered halfway through the show. I’ve never been a “Twilight
“-head, but now even I am seriously looking forward to November 20th. Keep reading »
Will Lindsay Lohan ever be able to hold a job? She was just barely hired to be a so-called “style consultant” to designer Emanuel Ungaro, but now rumors are flying that she’s already on the outs. The reasons? Your typical star power stuff—LiLo opted out of a press call with the Wall Street Journal and wouldn’t pose for pictures at the designer’s Fashion’s Night Out event last week.
Such a fate was already in the cards, no? But then again, Ungaro shouldn’t take it personally. Over the weekend, the star was 10 hours late to a photo shoot for her own 6126 leggings line. So you know, when it comes to effing up, LiLo doesn’t play favorites. [Fashionologie.com and OK!] Keep reading »
