Elizabeth Taylor is, of course, famous for her acting career, numerous marriages, charity work, and love of diamonds, but she was also known for her classic beauty look. She often highlighted her natural beauty with a dazzling red pout, but her violet eyes always took center stage with the help of bold brows and expertly lined eyes. Now, we might not be able to drape ourselves in sparkly diamonds, like Liz Taylor, but we can surely adopt her makeup tricks as we remember her life and career. Keep reading »
It’s a nice day for a fight wedding. Over the weekend, 28-year-old bride Angela Davito was arrested at her own wedding. Apparently, some uninvited guests showed up at the reception and started dirty dancing with the bride. This pissed off the groom, and a full-out brawl broke out. The police were called and tried to stop the fighting. When they were unsuccessful, they doused the reception in pepper spray. Firefighters came in to treat guests for pepper spray exposure.
Oh, but it got worse. Keep reading »
I’m glad that Yelp has finally recognized the hipsters as a category of people that need to eat. Now you can find out if a restaurant or bar is known for its “hipster” ambience. But you’d better act quickly, as once an establishment earns a “hipster” rating, all the actual hipsters stop going there. Maybe Yelp should make a “used to be hipster” option. I went to Yelp and looked up all of my favorite restaurants. I was delighted to discover that I’ve been dining “hipster” and didn’t even know it. How ironic of me. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Real men may have been pussified by man-hating, hairy-legged feminazis, so it’s a good thing they have XBox 360 games as an outlet for lady-slapping, alien-killing machismo. The much-anticipated Duke Nukem Forever game from Gearbox Software is where enlightened gender relations go to die. The “Be The One Man Army Who Always Gets The Babes” theme encourages dudes to save us poor, helpless females from getting impregnated (i.e. raped) by alien invaders. While saving the little woman from the bad guy is a well-trod theme of video games (and “dick flicks”), Duke Nukem Forever‘s got a lovely domestic violence-y element. According to The Official Xbox Magazine, if the lady “freaks out” while she’s being saved from impending alien rape, Duke can smack her across the face until she “calms down.” You know, slap some sense into the silly bitch!

See that guy pictured with Lady Gaga in a still from her “Born This Way” video? That’s Rick Genest. And unlike Miss Gaga, whose face required two hours of make up to achieve the skeletal look, Mr. Genest’s face really looks like that. Because his face is tattooed that way. As in, permanently. That’s right, Mr. Skeletor over there has a perma-Halloween costume on, and he’s spent three years and $7,000 to make it happen. And I’m apparently not the only one who thinks he’s mega-hot. The Canadian model has been tapped by Thierry Mugler designer — and frequent Gaga collaborator — Nicola Formichetti, as his muse. Formichetti found Genest living on the streets in Montreal, where he was doing odd jobs to pay for his next tattoo, and now he’s walking in Mugler’s menswear shows. And for the record, just because he looks scary, doesn’t mean he isn’t a sweetheart. His mom says, “Within the family he is a very loving boy, he’s very respectful to us.” [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
