Legalize American Apparel!

We knew that American Apparel had very liberal views on immigration reform, but not this liberal. The company is under fire from U.S immigration officials for allegedly hiring about 1,600 employees who are not eligible to work in the United States. An additional 200 employees are said to have “discrepancies in their work records.” Officials are threatening to deport the workers if they are unable to prove legal residence in the U.S. American Apparel’s founder and CEO, Dov Charney, who was born in Canada, said in a statement, “It is the company’s hope — and my personal hope as an immigrant myself — that these employees are able to confirm their work authorization so that they may continue to work at American Apparel.” [Stylist.com]

Hustler Inspired By The Boob Tube

We already told you about “Not The Cosby Show XXX”, “Celebrity Pornhab with Dr. Screw”, “Keeping It Up With The Kard-ASS-ians”, “This Ain’t Star Trek XXX”, and reports on the trend of porn companies like Hustler Video looking to television for inspiration, writing:

The twist now is going the extra mile to invest projects with better production values that actually have scripts and genuinely resemble the source material. There are stories, plots and even sex-free versions to accentuate the parody– however incongruous that might sound — on Blu-ray editions.

Uh, sex free versions? Now what’s the point of THAT? [Variety] Keep reading »

Sophie Hume Sequin Jacket with Detachable Hood, $337 on sale, Pixie Market

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?

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 »
