I Wanna Dance With This Guy


You know what always puts a smile on my face? Someone dancing like nobody is watching. Like this older gentleman (and his lady dance partner) totally getting down to a live band performing “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” I love that he’s actually acting out all of the lyrics. Oh! And the way he just uses all of the dance space possible during the chorus. Even the way he runs his hands over his combover is elegant. You go on with your bad self, mister! [EW] Keep reading »

Woo Hoo! H&M Online Shopping Is Coming Soon

I have a weakness for H&M. But going to the store can be pure hell between the crowds, the thumping music, and the epic fitting room lines. So I’ve always been annoyed that the retailer hasn’t offered online shopping for U.S. costumers—I mean, they have it in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Well, now Americans are being invited to the party. The company tweeted earlier today, “Good morning is an understatement! H&M has decided to have online shopping in the U.S. at the turn of the year 2011/2012.” Nice. Here’s hoping two of our other favorites—Zara and Club Monaco (who sells a few pieces through Shopbop.com)—get the memo and start allowing us to online shop soon. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

The Many, Many Musicians Who’ve Tried Their Hand At Acting

We’ll start things off with Carrie’s fellow Country Stars:

The Good: Tim McGraw was pretty darn convincing as the husband/manager of alcoholic country singer Kelly Canter in “Country Strong.” Though I have to ask: why cast Tim in a movie about country music and not have him sing so much as a single bar? But perhaps the most classic performance by a country star in a movie of all time? Dolly Parton in “Nine to Five.” Pure genius.

The Bad: Reba McEntire in “The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw,” though admittedly I did kind of enjoy her TV series. And Taylor Swift did not impress in the cheesy “Valentine’s Day.” Back to the studio, young one.

Lesson Carrie Should Take: Keep things wholesome, and your audience will love it. I’m thinking her choice of a church youth group leader role is right on target.

Man Has Mannequin Wife On “My Strange Addiction”


Just the other day, I learned more about the unusual sexual practice, agalmatophilia, otherwise known as mannequin love. Then lo and behold, I got to see it in action on this week’s episode of “My Strange Addiction.” Thirty-seven-year-old Davecat let the world see his relationship with his synthetic wife, Sidore. They enjoy having sex and doing erotic photo shoots together. And she never disagrees with him. The therapist gives his astute analysis — Davecat is lonely. Ya think? Oh, and there’s also a severe scab picker featured on the episode. This series just keeps getting more and more enthralling. [ONTD] Keep reading »

8 Ridiculous Celebrity Lawsuits

Katherine Heigl Sues Duane Reade & 8 Other Ridiculous Celeb-Related Lawsuits

Katherine Heigl once had an extremely promising career, starring on “Grey’s Anatomy” and in a number of (shitty) rom-coms, but she hasn’t been able to get a job recently thanks to the terrible reputation she and her manager mom have for their diva-like demands. I don’t think her latest headline-making stunt is going to win her any fans — she’s suing Duane Reade drugstores for six million dollars because they tweeted the above photo. I guess her argument is that they used her image to promote their stores without her permission and without paying her, which isn’t okay because she is “a highly successful television and motion picture actress, producer and celebrity” in “high demand.” RECORD SCRATCH. Have a stadium full of seats, Katie Heigl. Highly successful TV and movie actresses don’t need to sue drug store chains because they tweeted a photo. Also, I’m pretty sure Katherine Heigl isn’t worth six million. Ugh, this lawsuit gives me secondhand embarrassment like whoa. [TMZ]

We like in a litigious country so this is of course not the only totally stupid and ridiculous lawsuit related to a celeb’s name and image. Here are a few more…
