Sean Lennon Recreates Parents’ Legendary Photo

In late 1980, hours before he was shot and killed, John Lennon posed with wife Yoko Ono for legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz. Lennon was naked and curled around his wife. After the Beatles star died, the image became an iconic Rolling Stone cover. Now, nearly 30 years later, their son, Sean Lennon, and his model-girlfriend Kemp Muhl recreated the infamous shot with provocative photographer Terry Richardson for the fall issue of Purple magazine. This time, Sean lies fully clothed as a nude Muhl spoons him. What do you think: beautiful homage or twisted facsimile? [Flavorwire] Keep reading »

Who Was Your Childhood Celebrity Crush?


Of course I thought Johnny Depp was dreamy in “21 Jump Street.” But my childhood crush didn’t turn truly psycho until I saw “Edward Scissorhands.” How did I express my obsession with Johnny? In a totally sane way. I tried to become him. One afternoon when I was home alone, I stole my mom’s manicure kit and taped the different implements to my hands to see what it would feel like to have real scissorhands. Crazy crush behavior or early indicator that I might have goth tendencies in my future? Either way … mortifying.

Inevitably, childhood celeb crushes are only good for one thing: They make you do very embarrassing things. Take, for example, this young lady, Melissa Bell, who may end up in therapy as an adult after she discovers that it might not have been the best idea to read her crush story, “Ashton Kutcher Fan Fiction: The Middle School Dance,” aloud to her school. Poor girl. [BuzzFeed]

Just to make sure that Melissa and I are not alone in our shame, I asked the other ladies at The Frisky to share their most humiliating celebrity crush moments. Some stories you won’t want to miss after the jump. Keep reading »

Young French Women Are Disappearing As Their Families Force Them Into Marriages

Most summer vacations for teenage girls involve getting a job at the local Dairy Queen or tempting skin cancer at the beach. But in France, hundreds of girls disappear each summer when they are sent abroad and forced into marriages with men they’ve never met. Most of the victims are Muslim and of Asian, African, or Middle Eastern descent, so the government has generally considered it a cultural or religious issue. But since other European countries like England have governmental units that track down women who are forced into marriages in their countries of origin, we’re happy that France is just starting to keep up with the times. The French school system is working to set up an alert system for these girls who never return to school in the fall and last year they published a guide to help officials suss out forced marriages. The government is even making efforts to protect girls who want to annul their marriages. [Reuters] Keep reading »

168-Pound 5-Year-Old Is Eating Herself To Death

Suman Khatun weights 168 pounds even though she’s only five years old and three and a half feet tall. Doctors suspect she suffers from a hormone imbalance, like a malfunctioning pituitary gland, but since her family can’t afford to take her to Calcutta for expert treatment, no one knows for sure. Her family earns slightly less than $10 per week, so her appetite could literally eat them out of house and home. In one week, she consumes about 22 pounds of rice, 24 eggs, six liters of milk, and about 11 pounds of potatoes. When Suman, who also has trouble breathing because of her weight, isn’t fed, her mother says she screams, cries, and has even thrown rocks at her family. She’s also been known to sneak out and beg food from neighbors in her village. A local doctor first noticed her problem when she was three months old, but by the time she was two she already weighed 98 pounds. She has gained about 33 pounds every year after that. The doctor can only treat her symptoms, he says, because he doesn’t have the proper diagnostic treatment, but he fears Suman will die if she doesn’t stop over-eating or get medical attention.
