All of you have no doubt dreamed of being the 2010 Charmin King or Queen of the Throne. An epic contest will be held in New York City today to determine the winner, who will walk away with a check for $50,000. To win, contestants will face off in a Toilet Tissue Trivia Contest, followed by a physical competition which will test their toilet paper stacking, tossing, and mummy-making capabilities. Even better—we just got word that the winner will be crowned by Jane Lynch, Miss Sue Sylvester of “Glee” herself. We hope she is getting paid a lot for this, though I have a feeling she might just be taking home a lifetime supply of toilet paper. [EW] Keep reading »
John Legend recently opened up his Bowery home to New York magazine. He says he wanted a unique space with plenty of light, not a cookie-cutter box. While John’s 1,350 sq. ft. apartment does have floor-to-ceiling windows, giving his home plenty of light, it also looks a little too styled for my taste. Everything, including John and his model girlfriend Chrissy Telgen, seems to be placed just so. That’s not to say I would mind living in this apartment — it also contains a music room, an entertaining room, walk-in closets, and beautiful views of downtown Manhattan. And to think, a decade ago, John shared an East Village walk-up apartment with two college friends. Check out more photos of John’s apartment after the jump. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
We can’t stop staring at this trompe l’oeil shirt with a motorcycle jacket print on it. It’s kind of confusing … and we’re not sure that’s a good thing. But, better, we suppose, than a faux tuxedo t-shirt, right? Do you think this design is edgy or too far off the edge? [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »
Prince Charles is rumored to have a servant who squirts his toothpaste on his toothbrush. But Prince William and Kate Middleton will forgo such extravagances — for three years at least. The engaged couple will do their own laundry and cook their own meals for the remainder of the prince’s RAF military service, according to a royal source. That’s how long the couple intends to live on weekends in a cottage William rented in the town of Anglesey. “Prince William is not into extravagance and, like any other young officer in the armed forces, that is how he chooses to live his life,” said the source. “He and [Kate] live without domestic staff and they wouldn’t do it any other way. That’s the life they want to lead.” Of course, William and Kate have 24-hour body guards protecting them, but otherwise they live without maids or butlers. At least these kids don’t have any full-time staff; somehow I don’t imagine Prince William scrubbing his own toilet once a week.

Tell me, how many times have you heard this song in your dentist’s office waiting room? This 1990 track from British band Go West appeared on the soundtrack to the hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold movie “Pretty Woman” and became a pop radio staple. And actually, it’s pretty dang good. [Daily Motion
