Friday Roundup: It Happened This Week On The Frisky

Sadness: we lost another titan of pop culture this week. John Hughes, who wrote/directed “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club,” and “Pretty In Pink” passed away on Thursday at the age of 59. We haven’t been this bummed since, well, Michael and Farrah passed.

We’re going to affect our most Molly Ringwald-esque pout and cry into our beers tonight. But in the meantime, why don’t you catch up on what you missed on The Frisky this week: Keep reading »

Quickies!: Madonna Cancels Upcoming Slovenian Concert Over “Difficulties”

  • Madonna has canceled her upcoming concert in Ljubljana, Slovenia for “unforeseen logistical difficulties.” Slovenian media claims bad ticket sales threw the switch on the concert only 13 days away.

  • Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, is currently working on adapting the story of “Little Red Riding Hood” from the book to a movie, but with a darker gothic twist. [NY Daily News] – Yea, because a wolf trying to eat a little girl isn’t dark enough.
  • Newlyweds Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan both got tattoos saying “side by side” in Balinese during their honeymoon. Even though they both got food poisoning during their trip, they say the tattoo will be a happier souvenir. [Us Magazine] – Yeah, I’d take a tattoo over food poisoning any day.

    Is The Secret To “Mad Men”‘s Success The (Mostly) Female Writing Team?

    After “Gilmore Girls” and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” went off the air, us smart ladies looking for strong female characters flipped through the boob tube channels, alone, confused, and bleating for someone, anyone to come to our rescue. (Sorry, but Liz Lemon on 30 Rock never fails to piss us off for always coming around to see her boss’ point-of-view by the end of the episode.)

    Female leads we could identify with—um, no you, Kate Gosselin, are not what anyone would expect to find on a show about the boozy, womanizing, frat boy culture of a 1960′s Madison Ave ad agency.

    Spotted! The Michelle Obama Clothes Line

    Sure, she knows a thing or two about high-end designers (Jason Wu, anyone?), but that doesn’t mean First Lady Michelle Obama doesn’t wear less pricey ones. Her love of The Gap and J.Crew is well-documented and she recently wore both at the cover shoot for a new magazine, Children’s Health. The makeup artist on set, Susan Heydt, revealed that MObama wore a blue Gap cardigan over a J.Crew skirt. But with as much love as she shows them, when are these designers going to return the favor with a Michelle Obama-inspired collection? Keep reading »
