The Future Of Solar Power Is In Your Hairbrush

You might want to start saving those stray hairs that end up in your hairbrush or shower drain, because they might be worth something. If fact, your mane could potentially power the electricity for your home. The discovery comes from a Nepalese student, who has invented a few way to make solar panels—using human hair instead of silicon as a conductor. As hair is an adequate conductor of electricity, it would significantly lower the price of solar panel production, and make construction of the devices accessible to everyone (well, except for bald people). So far, the experiment has succeeded in re-charging cell phones and batteries.

Would you be able to wrap your mind around using a blow-dryer or curling iron that was powered by exactly the thing its used for? Crazy! [InventorSpot.com]

Caster Semenya Gets A Girly Makeover To Help “Prove” She’s A Woman

Caster Semenya, the runner who was forced to undergo sex-determination testing, appears on the cover of South African magazine You, with her hair down and her makeup done (including dark burgundy nail polish) and wearing a wardrobe that includes a silver sequined top with black leggings and a black dress accessorized with a necklace and piles of gold bangles.

Semenya does look more feminine in the You photos than she did in the other photos we’ve seen of her in her running attire, but why the heck does someone have to be styled in girly clothes to be accepted as a woman? The results of the sex-determination test aren’t in yet, but perhaps Semenya and her PR team are hoping they can convince the world she’s not a man by wearing a dress and lipstick. We, however, know plenty of guys who wear women’s clothes better than we do. [You via Broadsheet] Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Christina Milian Pulls A Britney

  • Christina Milian married rapper The Dream at the same Vegas chapel where Britney Spears married her first husband. [Dlisted] — Truly, Christina’s “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” because her rented dress, shoes, and veil cost only $200. I don’t think I could marry a man that wears his slippers in the street (see photo above).
  • This handy guide will help you keep track of all George Clooney‘s brunette gals … [PopEater] — Until your time comes.
  • Gisele Bundchen still hasn’t verbally confirmed rumors that she’s pregnant even though photos make it quite obvious. [TMZ] — At this point, is confirmation even necessary?

Why Did Page Six Magazine Photoshop The Living Hell Out Of Heidi Klum’s Butt?

The image above is not the offending image. The offending image is after the jump — that’s how wonky it is. So, Heidi Klum is on the cover of this week’s quarterly issue of Page Six Magazine and I don’t know when they did the photo shoot, but Heidi is mega preggers right now, so it must have been forevs ago OR they shot it recently and went to Crazy Town with the retouching. Whatever the case may be, they did a horrendous job. Heidi’s got an enviable “curvy” (for a model) and motherly physique — this hack job gives her what my coworker calls “totes flapjacks.” It ain’t right! Click after the jump to see Heidi’s wonk ass.

OMG! Is Taylor Momsen A Cutter?!

So seriously, if she is, it’s not funny. But Little J was out past her bedtime as usual last night and displayed some suspicious markings on her inner wrist.

But girlfriend is going for a rock ‘n’ roll image and nothing says “punk rock” like “I cut myself to feel.” [NYC, 9/9/09] Keep reading »

Megan Fox Goes Totally ’80s For Wonderland Magazine

For a new spread in Wonderland magazine, Megan Fox goes totally over-the-top ’80s. Shot by Mariano Vivanco, the story is all about the big hair, the big jewelry, and the LBDs cut to shreds, like that shirt you bought that time you went to Jamaica and got your hair corn-rowed for some reason. We like that the looks are Supergirl bold, but we think we may be experiencing a slight overdose of the “Jennifer’s Body” actress. Still, you can watch the pretty cool behind-the-scenes video and check out more images after the jump. (Read our buzzed-about interview with Diablo Cody on Fox here.)
