Today’s Lady News: Sarah Palin Tweets To Obama “No Pussyfooting” On Osama Bin Laden Pic

  • Sarah Palin weighed in on the Osama bin Laden death photo debate on Twitter — because we all care what the former governor of Alaska thinks about it!!! — to tell President Obama, “Show photo as warning to others seeking America’s destruction. No pussy-footing around, no politicking, no drama; it’s part of the mission.” Translation: This was probably the only way Sarah could use the word “pussy” in reference to Obama in a tweet and not get in trouble.

  • An Iowa bill that will ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy — which is when anti-abortion activists say a fetus can feel pain — was basically dead inside a state legislature committee, but a group of politicians used a loophole to send it to the Iowa Senate.

Do Not Want: Gap’s Denim Romper

Listen, Gap, I know you’re calling this a “denim romper” to try to make it seem trendy and fresh, but the truth is, I had the exact same piece of clothing in 4th grade, and back then we called it by its rightful name: “shortalls,” aka jean short overalls. Your version might not have Winnie the Pooh characters embroidered on the front pocket, but that’s the only detectable difference. The jig is up. And honestly, I don’t think the world is ready for shortalls to make a comeback. Keep reading »

Shopping Guide: 7 Almost-Formal Shorts
I’m still not totally on board with the formal shorts thing. No matter the fabric, I feel like shorts are inherently a more casual choice than skirts or trousers. That being said, the formal-ish shorts that are filling the stores right now are adorned with a little something extra — ribbon belts, bows, leather trim, foldover waistbands or embellished hems — that make them seem exponentially more special than a pair of denim cutoffs. After the jump, seven options perfect for Sunday brunches with your girlfriends, wandering around an art museum, or date night with your lover.

Is Julianne Moore A Convincing Sarah Palin? You Betcha!

Is that the pitbull with lipstick or one of the lesbian moms from “The Kids Are Alright”? I can barely tell.

“The Voice” Teams Have Been Picked

Us Frisky ladies are getting pretty into “The Voice,” thanks to the fact that it’s all about the singing and not about image, like “American Idol” can be. For the past two weeks , Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine have been busily assembling their 8-person teams that will battle it out for the next few weeks. The way it worked was simple—a singer belted out a song as the four listened with their backs turned. If a team leader pressed their red button, they’d turn around and that person would be on their team. If more than one of them turned around, the singer could choose the person’s whose team they were most pumped to join. (Duh. Cee-Lo!) If no one pressed their button, the singer was out.

Christina says things got pretty heated when more than one team leader wanted a singer. Keep reading »

The Deets On Katy Perry’s Uber-Religious Childhood

Katy Perry looks gorgeous on the new cover of Vanity Fair. And in the accompanying story, she talks about the thing we find the most interesting about her—the fact that she was raised by two ministers in an extremely evangelical household. It’s now common knowledge that Katy started her career as Katy Hudson, a gospel singer who’d only heard secular music at slumber parties, but in this interview she reveals some new details. “I didn’t have a childhood,” she explains, before divulging that she wasn’t allowed to say “Dirt Devil,” as in the vacuum cleaner, and that the only book her mother would read was the Bible.

After the jump, more details Katy’s shared about her upbringing. Keep reading »
