Two Of These Entertainers Sold The Most Magazines In 2010 And One Sold The Least

The world is so fixated on what Lady Gaga will do and wear next that she was the newsstand hit in 2010. She can sell a magazine as well as she sells out her concerts. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, Gaga graced the covers of the best-selling Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, and Elle issues in 2010. Rihanna also did well on the newsstands. Her GQ cover was the second-best seller for the men’s mag. But she also had appeal with young women, as her Seventeen cover also sold like hotcakes. Surprisingly, Taylor Swift was an under-performer at the newsstands. Her April Elle cover was the worst-selling issue of the year. Likewise, Taylor’s November Glamour cover was the mag’s second-worst seller, and her July Marie Claire was the third-worst selling issue for the monthly. So what does this say about our culture now? We’re more interested in celebs with a sexy edge as opposed to a wholesome image. [WWD] Keep reading »

Like Liquor? Move Here!

Suppose you’re looking to drown your sorrows at the bottom of a pint glass. Where might be the best place to do that? A survey done by The Daily Beast examined cities based on the number of heavy drinkers and binge drinkers, the number of alcohol-related deaths, and the average number of drinks per person per month. At the top of the list? Milwaukee, WI, followed by Fargo, ND. We suppose this makes sense: Fargo and Milwaukee are cold-weather towns, but they’re followed on the list by San Francisco, CA, Austin, TX and Reno, NV—all party- and tourism-heavy cities. Surprisingly not in the top 40: New York City and Los Angeles. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Courtney Makes Love To The Camera

Courtney Love is a wee bit TwitPic happy today! Among the live performance shots and photos of her asleep on an airplane are a few pics of the wild card singer dressed up to the nines in her best burlesque gear. She’s kooky and a total loose cannon, but it’s moments like these where I wish Courtney was my friend and we could play dress-up in her closet together.

8 Strange Celebrity Addictions

Strange Celebrity Addictions

TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” is everything I could have longed for in a show and more. I am like a kid in a candy store grappling with toilet paper consumers, rock eaters, compulsive nail growers, and even pee drinkers. OK, so the pee drinking episode was really hard to watch. But most of the others … absolutely compelling.  So many odd obsessions, so little time. What are the chances they’ll start airing the show ’round the clock? Maybe they could feature Scarlett Johansson next season. Now that she’s off her strict “Avengers” diet, she’s going buck wild … with buffalo wings. “Oh my good [I am obsessed] with buffalo chicken wings, I am addicted to them … You will have to roll me down the red carpet next time you see me … I can’t stop eating them, I just can’t get enough.” That sounds like the makings of a great “My Strange Addiction” episode. I’m picturing ScarJo making covert excursions to sports bars and eating her wings secretly in the parking lot. Keep on clicking to see other celebs’ strange addictions. [Celebitchy]

Would You Wear: A Faux Birkin Bag?

This feisty little number from Thursday Friday offers women the chance to carry the tres coveted (and expensive!) Hermès Birkin bag at a tiny, tiny fraction of the price. Says Olena Sholomytska, one half of the design duo behind the line, “We ended up with a surreal design that references luxury but is ultimately an anti-status status symbol.” The canvas tote, screen-printed with the Birkin bag likeness, retails for around $35, and can carry anything from groceries to books — or conceal your real Birkin from purse snatchers.
