Restorers Discover A Big Old Erect Penis In A Classic 17th Century Painting

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that folks back in olden times (a) had a sense of humor and (b) had dirty minds just as bad as ours. But it’s true. An art restorer at the Louvre was tasked with restoring Nicolas Poussin’s 17th century painting “Hymenaios Disguised as a Woman During an Offering to Priapus,” which shows the god of marriage (Hymenaois) giving a gift to the god of fertility (Priapus). Underneath many layers of paint, she found that … Priapus has an erect penis that’s, well, basically porn-star sized. The restoration team thinks that the peen was probably in the original work and that, years later, another artist covered it up after getting complaints from the Catholic Church. An alternate theory is that, back in the day, artists would paint their subjects nude and then paint clothes on top so as to make them as realistic as possible. Who knows which theory is right, but if you happen to be in Brazil next week, go check out the unveiling of the restored painting at the Museu de Arte de São Paulo.

Shocking: A Stephenie Meyer Clothing Line That Has Nothing To Do With “Twilight”

Inevitable, right? Stephenie Meyer, the Twilight scribe, designed three tee shirts and skateboards, based on her first novel, The Host , for Hobo Skate Company. (Who knew she was a sk8er gurl?) Generally, we’re so over celeb/model/everyone-and-their-dog clothing designers doing their own lines, but at least Meyer is using her fame for good, not evil, by teaming up with a company that’ll donate some of the proceeds to charity. Hobo Skate Company will give a portion of their sales of the $25 tees and $50 boards to the Hobo Foundation (Wait, wtf is up with that name!?–Editor] to support homeless families. Honestly, they’re underwhelming—the three designs are “X-Ray,” “The Cave,” and “Body & Soul.” We think she should stick to writing vampire erotica light, but tweeny Twilight obsessives will probably love anything Meyer does. And, hey, at least it’s not a handbag line. [MTV] Keep reading »

Lily Allen Behind The Scenes, Working It For Chanel (Again)

It’s no-big-whup news that Lily Allen is starring in the new Chanel campaign. In her first foray into Chanel ads, she did the whole Audrey Hepburn thing. But the new 411: We’ve spotted behind-the-scenes photos from the latest installment, courtesy of The Daily Mail. Lily’s posing with Karl (who’s also working it behind the camera) and rocking a seriously layered ‘do. The Mail claims she’s looking sort of nervous, but I’m calling BS on that—Miss Allen is a photo shoot vet, and knows her way around a camera. Check ‘em out… Keep reading »

Eight Celebs Go Undercover!

When you’re a celebrity, staying in the public eye cognito is key. Best way to achieve said results? Disguises. Just ask Joaquin Phoenix. Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint attended the Reading Festival in the U.K. and took a tip from his playbook by showing up in some oh-so-inconspicuous matching helmets and goggles. Of course, no one noticed them at all as they rocked out to the punk band Gallows. After the jump some other great celebrity disguises guaranteed to promote attention anonymity.

New Doc Explores Forks, Washington, The Real Home Of “Twilight”


There are T-minus six months until “New Moon” hits movie theaters, and “Twilight” heads are seriously chomping at the bit. To bide their time, many are heading to the real town of Forks, Washington, where the books and movie supposedly take place. But since that’ll cost you a plane ticket plus $300 for the official tour, we’re excited about this documentary “Twilight in Forks,” which tells the story of this town which famously is the rainiest spot in the United States. The doc takes you inside the real Forks High School, talks to a clerk at a local store who constantly gets mistaken for Bella, heads to La Push beach, and interviews a Quileutes elder about the tribes’ legends. Overall, it’s a look at how this sleepy town has changed since “Twilight” blew up. The doc comes out on DVD on October 15, but go ahead and put it in your Netflix queue. [MTV] Keep reading »

Kate Gosselin Gets A Makeover, Actually Looks Good

We’re officially in shock and awe here. Kate Gosselin, a woman whose very hairdo makes us cringe — and the fact that it’s caught on as a trend inspires us to shout out “why!?” and pump our fists at the heavens — is looking halfway decent in an upcoming issue of People. Shot in LA by Nigel Parry last week, Gosselin did not actually get a new haircut; this look is the result of some rather clever styling involving plenty of hairspray and possibly a clip-on thrown in the mix. Seriously though, she’s almost unrecognizable. As much as anyone in their right mind would probably ditch the old ‘do after seeing this pic, sadly, once you butcher your hair in a Gosselin fashion, it’s probably pretty hard to get back to square one. And you thought your bangs were hard to grow out. [ohnotheydidnt] Keep reading »

First Time For Everything: Swinging

When I first set out to write about swinging for an article about the lifestyle, the last thing I expected was to find myself nodding when a slim, curly-haired brunette asks if she may take off my panties. It’s a windy Friday night and I’m in a cozy, apartment-style swing club in Midtown Manhattan, my short, cherry-red dress folded down to my waist — all in the name of research, of course. The bartender, a curvy blonde, leans over to kiss me. Keep reading »
