The Snooki Ball Will Drop After All

I know I was devastated when I learned that Times Square put the kibosh on Snooki’s 2011 “hamster ball” drop stunt. Yes, MTV had planned to put her in some kind of pink, glittering ball and ring in the New Year by lowering her down into the center of the action. Apparently, the bitches in charge of Times Square’s New Year’s preparations deemed the entire hamster ball apparatus “too impractical.” Ya think? Well, MTV was not ready to give up on the Snooki-drop. “We love our Times Square home and while we’re disappointed there won’t be a Snooki ball drop there, she cannot be denied! So we’re taking a road trip to the place where it all began, Seaside Heights, and droppin’ it all there,” the network said in a statement released on Thursday afternoon. I guess 2011 is going to be a good year after all. Does this make Jersey Shore the new Times Square and Snooki the new Dick Clark? [NY Times] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: “Rosie The Riveter” Model Dies At 86

  • Rosie The Riveter” has died. Geraldine Hoff Doyle, the model for “Rosie,” a WWII factory worker who implored to other ladies “We Can Do It!,” passed away on Sunday at 86. As a 17-year-old in 1942, Geraldine was working as a metal presser at a Michigan factory when she was captured on film by a United Press photographer. Without Geraldine’s knowledge, the image for the photo was drawn by graphic artist J. Howard Miller and used by the labor movement. It later became iconic during the feminist movement during the latter half of the century. Geraldine was apparently not aware of the “Rosie The Riveter” poster until the 1980s when she saw her own face staring back at her within the pages of a magazine. [New York Times]

The Worst Fashion Trends Of 2010

Single? Not sure why? Blame your closet. We haven’t exactly been shy about expressing our fashion preference when it comes to the opposite sex—I recently opined about the horrors of message tees, turtlenecks, and khakis on men, and male dating expert Abraham Lloyd weighed in the horrors of baby doll dresses and jeggings on women (sigh).

Twilight Zone Music News: Kanye Stars In Kim Kardashian’s Video, Kate Moss Records An Album

Seem like that should be the other way around, no? [TMZ]

Also surprising, Kate Moss is making an album too! Keep reading »
