Janet Jackson Makes First Public Appearance At BET Awards

This video gave me the mega Monday sadsies. Last night, just a few days after her brother’s death, Janet Jackson stepped out to give thanks to his fans at the BET Awards. For a minute, she was able to keep her composure. “To you, Michael is an icon. To us, Michael is family,” she said. “And he will forever live in all of our hearts. On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love. Thank you for all of your support. We miss him so much.” Then her voice got shaky. Although a few days have passed, his death is still evoking sadness of epic proportions. [CNN] Keep reading »

Why I Hated His Strip-Club Bachelor Party

Being the modern, liberated, well-educated woman that I am, I never thought I would mind the man in my life going to a strip club. Years ago, I would even occassionally join my guy friends for an evening at a gentlemen’s club. It meant free cocktails all night, and have you ever seen the ladies’ room at a strip club? The restrooms are girly bonanzas that range between the cosmetics aisle at a drug store to a miniature Sephora. Plus, strippers on their bathroom breaks have the best gossip. “Desperate Housewives”? “Days of Our Lives”? Child’s play in comparison. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Michael Jackson Wasn’t The Biological Father Of Prince And Paris

  • Debbie Rowe, Michael Jackson’s ex-wife, said children Prince Michael and Paris aren’t Michael’s biological children because the sperm came from a donor. [Dlisted] — Wow, Michael hasn’t been buried or whatever yet, and this woman is already spilling the beans. Well, at least she’s confirmed everyone’s suspicions.
  • Zachary Quinto spent some quality time with a male “pal” over the weekend. [Perez Hilton] — I have no idea whether Zachary is gay, but he and his friend do make a cute couple.
  • Ana Ortiz of “Ugly Betty” welcomed a baby girl, named Paloma Louise Lebenzon, with husband Noah Lebenzon. [E! Online] — I’ve always liked the name Paloma.

Marrying A Much Older Man Made Me A Better Person

Billy Joel and his wife of nearly five years Katie Lee are splitting up. A “friend” of the couple told the New York Daily News that the age difference of 33 years drove the couple apart. I doubt it. Maybe, like so many couples that end up divorced, they just weren’t meant to be. You never hear anyone say “Dick and Jane are the same age—that must have had something to do with their breakup.” I call BS on blaming the age difference when it comes to divorce. Though, admittedly, I’m biased. Older men and younger women? Keep reading »

Bod Mod Trend: The Bagelheads

Bagelheads isn’t a slang term for my people, the Jews, it’s actually a bizarre new beauty trend in Japan. The country that brought you the husband hunting bra and nose stretcher has now spawned a new body modification trend that looks straight out of a delicatessen.

Oh. Hey. Your Accessories Are Freaking Me Out

Wow. These accessories are weird. Central St. Martins design student Anna Schwamborn has created a line of “mourning objects” jewelry that is intended to help grieving survivors after a loved one passes. What’s a fashionista to do in the wake of a death? Why, make jewelry out of the deceased, of course! Shudder. Schwamborn’s awesome resume — she’s worked with Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood — certainly helped her on the path to out-there designs. In this case, the London-based designer uses the hair and cremains of the dearly departed to fashion human-based wearable art. The human ashes are combined with black bone china to make the harder parts of what she calls “post-mortem memorial pieces.” So, um, why would you want to wear bits of a dead someone? “The objects are supposed to be worn close to the body of the mourner,” says Schwamborn, “symbolizing a lasting physical connection between two individuals even after death.” The pieces include a necklace, a rosary, and, fittingly, a “tear catcher.” [Dezeen] Keep reading »

Worship At The Church Of Heidi Montag

Can’t make it to Sunday church services? No worries! Just follow Heidi Montag Pratt on Twitter. The girl’s tweets are consistently of the Biblical variety and I’m pretty sure Jesus personally sanctioned the upcoming Playboy cover girl to be his personal web apostle. Some of her most thunderously preachy tweets, after the jump… Keep reading »
