So, is it fierce enough for you? Christian Siriano of “Project Runway” fame is continuing his collaboration with Payless Shoes. If you remember, the budget shoe company sponsored Siriano’s spike studded footwear for his fashion show during New York Fashion Week back in February. His runway shoes have inspired his Fall 2009 collection for Payless which will be in stores this August and retail between $30 and $50. Egyptian hieroglyphics are a strong inspiration for the collection which will feature metallic fabrics, chain metal details, and teals and turquoise tones reminiscent of the Nile. Like the designer himself, the shoes sound a bit dramatic — but I think they are actually cute. This teal “Slither” bootie is one of several styles in the range and will retail for $49.99. What do you think? Ferosh or hot tranny mess? Keep reading »
Fifty thousand angry people booed and hissed at a concert in Manchester on Saturday when Lady Gaga, who was supposed to be performing to support the band Take That, decided to skip out. Is there anybody else reading this who has never heard of Take That? Well, regardless, I’m sure most of you have heard of Lady Gaga and with the price of concert tickets these days, I’d be pretty pissed if a big shot like her didn’t show for a…show. [Metro UK] After the jump, some other artists who’ve been MIA at gigs. Keep reading »
I (8/31/84) have a great man (11/6/86) who couldn’t have a leisurely chat to save his life. He’s of the mindset that he will only speak if it’s of dire importance. The days I feel like being the listener are terrible — filled with awkward silences, where I seek solace in chattier friends and make him feel inadequate. The problem is I’m considering moving in with him after two years of long distance. The times we’ve visited each other are great, because actions really do speak louder than words and he never fails to make me feel like a goddess in person. This only partially quells my fears, because he’s made it very clear he wants to marry me. What is marriage without great communication? I’ve never been with the strong, silent type before, and we get in spats over it all the time. This is our only weak point. I know he’s a great man and I want this to work out. Scorpios have physical down pat, but I am barking up the wrong tree expecting him to ravish my body and my mind? – Verbal Virgo Keep reading »
Many of us know cancer patients who are here today and gone within a matter of weeks. The New York Times recently ran a piece with some much needed insight as to why. All the millions of dollars raised at “Walk for the Cure” and “Relays for Life” are deposited into a large pot of grant research money, and one would like to believe that the money is being given to the most advanced, inventive ideas out there that could potentially cure cancer. Unfortunately, the truth is that the dough usually goes to small research projects that are pretty much useless and will have the slightest, if any, impact on finding the cure.

The television pickings are always a touch slim come summer. Surviving without new episodes of “Lost” and “Friday Night Lights” is hard enough, but now we can’t even look forward to new helpings of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Ahhh! But never fear. Yes, there are a few good things on TV this week. Here’s the stuff you don’t want to miss. Keep reading »
Why is it that the one thing you really dislike about your body is always the one thing you can’t do anything about? I have sort of accepted my short legs, or, rather, I have kinda accepted the fact that they are short and sparing a minor miracle, that’s not going to change. Standing somewhat proudly at five feet five inches I fall into the boring average-short category. To my surprise, however, people tend to think I am tall. Maybe it’s the heels, but I think it’s got more to do with attitude and unswerving conviction that I am a tall person trapped in a short persons body. I’ll eventually get over the dark despair in my heart over my inability to try out for America’s Next Top Model, but in the meantime… Keep reading »
I’ve always been a sucker for a guy with a little chest hair. Hell, even a little bit of back hair doesn’t bother me. Despite what The Observer may say, not all women are into girlie men. How else to explain the popularity of Ed Westwick, who rocks his chest hair like a modern day Tom Jones? Or Ryan Reynolds, who emphasized his Entertainment Weekly cover with a downy hair shirt? Keep clicking for photos of other celebs who know real men have hair.
Miss Ellie, a blind 15-year-old Chinese Crested Hairless, won the pedigree class at this year’s World’s Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, CA. She certainly deserved that recognition, but she proves love is blind, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and any other adage that’s appropriate here. Would you adopt an ugly pet?
