This weekend, to celebrate our nation’s birth, we suggest you forgo the colors traditionally associated with the U-S-of-A and put on something a little more lively and firecracker-like. Really, is there anything more American than pyrotechnics?

Quickies!: Jackson Funeral To Be Held At The Staples Center?

  • Michael Jackson’s funeral is reportedly being held at the L.A. Staples Center next Tuesday, July 7 — the same date he signed his will seven years ago. [Starpulse]
  • Director Michael Bay (who is behind the “Transformers” movies) agrees that his star, Megan Fox, says “ridiculous things.” [Starpulse] — Finally, a dude who hates her as much as we do. Okay, maybe he doesn’t hate her.
  • Lady Gaga bares all for V magazine. [V Magazine] — Is the Lady GaGa-licious, or just GaGa-slutty? You be the judge.

Gay Sex No Longer Illegal In New Delhi

The gay pride parade in New Delhi, India may have just ended, but supporters of the gay right’s movement rose that striped flag once again in celebration of the decriminalization of gay sex in the traditionally conservative country. While the New Delhi High Court did not legalize homosexuality, it did grant gay Indians the freedom to make same-sex love. Keep reading »

Love Conquers All In Japan

While most businesses in Japan are crashing, the hotel industry has found a way to “stimulate” the economy. Giving new meaning to the term “love shack,” the country’s love hotels are racking up some serious tail. Chock full of “amenities” like DVD players, karaoke machines, makeup, custom rubbers and hot tubs, love hotels are open to all couples and all fetishes. The veil of sex-shame has fallen in Japan (unlike their neighbors in China), paving the way for this new multi-billion dollar business of love. And they’re getting creative! One hotel has a room with a merry-go-round in it. Not one with a circus fetish, I would much rather stay the night in the Hello Kitty-themed hotel in Osaka. [CNN] Keep reading »

Yet Another Kate Gosselin Project Postponed

Seems like everything Kate Gosselin tries to do these days falls through. The woman is getting divorced, “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ is postponed, the release date for her cookbook/family advice book, Love Is In The Mix: Making Meals Into Memories, was pushed back, and now mama Kate’s new clothing line for kids is “on hold.” Why any clothing company would think that because Kate has a bunch of kids, she has the fashion sense to design clothes for them (come on, look at that hair) is beyond me. And it seems Healthtex clothes may feel the same way… Keep reading »

Hypnotized To Lose Weight

As a true believe in diet and exercise as the way best way to lose weight and keep it off, when I read about people who go to extremes like getting hypnosis to hoax them into believing they had gastric band surgery, I am quite the cynic. Seriously, put down the bacon cheeseburger, buy a treadmill, and walk on the damn thing. But rather than taking the proven route to successfully losing weight, one Daily Mail writer chose to go to Spain to undergo the new weight loss treatment known as the Gastric Mind Band.

Vatican Thinks America Has Naughty Nuns

Nuns across America are not very happy with the Vatican. And since nobody likes an unhappy nun, this story is troublesome for me to report. It seems that nuns have been branching out into the community, not wearing their religious garb, choosing to live independently and are joining new professions like political advocacy and academia. In response to this trend, Cardinal Franc Rode, who oversees all religious orders, launched two investigations of nuns across the United States. He doesn’t like how they’ve “opted for ways to take them outside” the church. Keep reading »

Five Things To Know About Golfer Cheyenne Woods, Besides The Obvious

Sure, Cheyenne Woods is the niece of Tiger Woods, but there’s more to the Wake Forest golfer than that. The 18-year-old, who will turn 19 this month, made her LPGA debut last week but missed the cut by four shots. She’s currently ranked 93rd in the country by Golfweek. Since she was groomed by one of the best golfing coaches, grandfather Earl Woods Sr., she’ll continue to get media attention even after the unsuccessful debut. Learn more about Cheyenne after the jump. Keep reading »
