Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Kanye West is so serious about fashion, he’s put aside music for the summer and has joined the legions of people, like myself, who are interning! While I’m working at The Frisky this summer, Kanye is toiling away at… The Gap? For realz? According to Us Weekly, West has been holed up at The Gap’s New York offices learning the fashion biz from the inside. Hopefully he’s set aside that ego! [The Cut] Kanye is not the first high profile celeb to drop their high-rollin’ lifestyle for bottom of the totem pole status. Keep clicking to read about more celebrity interns…
The Los Angeles County Sheriff is considering expanding a program that distributes condoms in a unit for gay men at Men’s Central Jail. Currently, an outreach worker from nonprofit Center for Health Justice stops by once a week to give one condom per inmate to the 300 men in that unit. Now they’re considering doubling the number of condoms being distributed. Sheriff Department officials say they spend about $2 million annually on HIV/AIDS medication and identify 65 new cases of HIV each month. “Sex in jails is against the law, but there is a public health issue that needs to be considered,” said spokesperson Steve Whitmore.

Did Quincy Jones have a good relationship with Michael Jackson before his death? It seems debatable judging from his interview with Men.Style.com. The legendary music producer, who has been close with Jackson for several decades, sounds eerily unemotional about the icon’s death. During the brief Q&A, Jones says everything from, “He obviously didn’t want to be black,” to “I won’t be going to his funeral.” Is this brutal honesty or brazen disregard? Judge for yourself after reading these excerpts.

Supermodel Karen Mulder, a Victoria’s Secret Angel from the late ’90s, was arrested in Paris yesterday for allegedly threatening to attack her plastic surgeon. WTF?! The Angel-gone-bad was trying to get the female surgeon to reverse a procedure. Karen “began screaming and shouting about the operation and became extremely threatening,” said a detective. “There were repeated calls to the female surgeon who was extremely scared.” We don’t know what kind of botched procedure could made her freak out, but if she got boobs and a stomach like Tara Reid once had, we understand her reaction, but not the violent threats. Karen, sadly, isn’t the only supermodel to exhibit bad behavior, she’s just one of a few to be actually arrested.
Hilary Duff is officially part of the “Gossip Girl” cast and will start appearing in episodes next season, which premieres October 5th. As hipster Vanessa’s new NYU roomate, Olivia Burke, she is looking for a very “authentic” college experience. Personally, I like that she is set to play a character that’s closer to the way she is in real life, rather than just a new kid on the Upper East Side. She was snatched up after NBC passed on casting her in their new show “Barely Legal.” Let’s hope she gets paired up with a love interest we don’t see coming like, oh, Dan Humphrey.

The front page of the latest New York Times Style section is plastered with the faces of sexy vampires. Not that vampires are not the “it” sex symbols of the moment, but whenever the Times writes about something, that thing has inevitably jumped the shark. Not that I think the blood suckers from “Twilight” are going to be disappearing any time soon, but I think vampires have reached their zenith. I wish “True Blood” many more seasons of sex and sucking, but vampire culture is past its prime. The real question is, what is the next supernatural creature millions of girls will lust after? After a thorough and exhausting inventory of the non-human hotties out there, I bring you your next fantasy. Keep reading »
The “Bruno” producers must have had a long chat with J.K. Rowling. How else could they have possibly guarded the secret perils and dangers faced by a not-terribly-bright gay Austrian fashion commentator? Whatever wizardry was conjured for the keeping of secrets, it worked. No one seemed to know anything about the upcoming movie release of “Bruno,” until his memorable entrance and landing at the MTV Movie Awards. Since then we have been getting tidbits here, but, In the greatest surge of “Bruno” knowledge I have so far stumbled upon, here are edited versions of production notes released by Universal Pictures. Read about all the off camera shenanigans after the jump. Keep reading »
“I was just saying about birth control, because I got very scared about it the other day and I felt like God was telling me that this was something just created by the government that is really bad for my body and I was just getting sick…. I researched it, and one of the founding people who invented birth control said it was the worst thing they had ever done, they wished they’d never created it, how it morally corrupted society, it’s just sickening to him…. How it devalues women, how it causes depression, how it can cause cancer, how it sterilizes your body, and what it does to your body, how most women are suicidal sometimes on it, and in fact, in order to even stabilize the population right now, each woman would have to have three children…. The population is decreasing so much that population control is just a myth.”
– Heidi Montag, taking time away from her job as a Twitter evangelist, addressing the subject of birth control on “The Alex Jones Show,” a conservative radio talk show. [The Hollywood Gossip] Keep reading »
Before I got engaged, I used to think a couple’s truest test of compatibility and readiness for marriage was living together. What could be more of a test, I reasoned, than successfully sharing the same space, splitting the bills, and delegating household chores while still enjoying each other’s company and remaining sexually attracted to one another? That’s why, when my boyfriend proposed after nearly a year and a half of co-habitation, I didn’t hesitate in saying ‘yes.’ I’d lived with a boyfriend before — for over three years — and when that relationship eventually became more like brother-sister than boyfriend-girlfriend, I ended things and wondered if it was even possible for me to live with someone and continue loving him in the romantic sense. But then I met Drew and realized it was. Keep reading »
