How Valentine’s Day Is Celebrated Around The World

You know the drill in America; when you’re little, you hand out perforated cards and hope your crush gives you one of the good ones instead of the obvious “just friends” version. And as adults, the pressure is on to have a special date night and be showered with gifts, or be forced to acknowledge that you are completely and utterly alone in the world. But, just like any other holiday, every country has its own way of celebrating. (Or not celebrating—Valentine’s Day is banned in many countries because of its evil consumerist Western roots.) Here are a few other traditions that might be fun to try. Keep reading »

Tina Fey Defines “Crazy”

“I have a suspicion that the definition of ‘crazy’ in show business is a woman who keeps talking even after no one wants to f**k her anymore.”

Tina Fey, writing in The New Yorker. Yes, The New Yorker! My dream woman writes for The New Yorker! Which is kind of why she’s my dream woman, isn’t it? But seriously, this is so true. Just ask Helen Mirren. [The New Yorker via GQ.tumblr.com] Keep reading »

6 Reasons To Watch The Grammys

It’s mid-February and award season malaise is already hitting us hard. With the Oscars so close on our radars, it’s hard to get too exited about Sunday night’s annual Grammy Awards. Bashing the Grammys is something of a sport—when the nominations were bestowed in December, we noted how ridiculous it is that many classic albums of 2010 wouldn’t be considered because they dropped after the September 30th deadline and that the nominees in the rock/metal/hard rock categories seemed straight out of the ’90s. But still, you should still watch because, well, you should. After the jump, five SIX! reasons not to miss the Grammy Awards. Keep reading »

3 Actors Who’ve Played Cupid On-Screen

Cupid. The nude little guy with the bow and arrows who goes around shooting people and making them fall in love. On Valentine’s Day, he’s everywhere. But interestingly, Hollywood hasn’t given him that much play over the years. I set out today to bring you 10 stars who’d played Cupid on the big or small screen. And only came up with, uh, three. So, after the jump, three dudes who’ve played the god of desire and erotic love. Maybe some producer out there will be inspired to start developing something a little more substantial in this genre.

Jessica Simpson Wants You To Be Pretty (Not Necessarily In Pink) For The Prom

Jessica Simpson never went to the prom. But she wants you, or at least your younger cousin, to look gorgeous at yours. So in addition to her line of shoes, bags, jeans, etc—apparently, her apparel fiefdom is valued at almost $1 billion a year—Jessica is now creating prom dresses for David’s Bridal. As the press release reads, “Inspired by the fabulous designer gowns I’ve worn to red carpet events, my affordable collection is designed to fit and flatter a variety of body types and help girls achieve their own red carpet style for prom.” The dresses cost between $139 and $229, and honestly, look pretty nice. I am thoroughly obsessed with the space age tie dye of the one on the left and am considering purchasing it. Even though I’d be wearing it to my 15-year reunion rather than to an actual prom.

Vanessa Hudgens Says She’s Grown Balls

“After the Oscars we were at Madonna’s party. Quentin Tarantino was there, and I was talking to him for a while, probably after a few drinks, and I told him, ‘We’ve gotta do something together.’ And he was like, ‘I would love to. That would be really great.’ Slowly, I’ve gained balls. I used to be very shy. Nothing has happened with Tarantino yet. But I definitely tried to plant my seed. Hopefully he won’t look back and think, ‘Oh my God. That crazy b****.’”

Vanessa Hudgens talks to Details magazine about coming out of her shell and looking for more adult roles post “High School Musical.” I dunno if I like Vanessa trying to be more of a bad girl. Side note: isn’t this photo terribly awkward? I bet it was freezing out when she shot this because it looks like her bottom lip is chattering. [Details] Keep reading »
