True story: I went to grad school in Brighton, England, the place where raves never died. Everywhere you go in Brighton, there are middle-aged people wearing neon yarn hair, a holdover from their days in the rave caves of the ’90s. Often, these rave casualties would tote around their children, and many times I felt pangs of second-hand embarrassment for the tweens whose moms and dads sported fake neon dreadlocks down to their knees. It gave me the douchechills. Willow Smith’s new neon braids remind me of those Brighton folks, but unlike them, her new hairdo is age- and life-appropriate. Whip it, girl. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
“Some of our memories are shared. We don’t know what actually happened to whom. One of us was stung by a bee, but we can’t remember who, because we both felt it.”
– Mary-Kate Olsen on her trippy twin connection to Ashley in Vogue. When their shared brain reads Simone de Beauvoir, does only one of them have to read for the other to absorb it? My money’s on Ashley. She’s the smart one, right? I still always get them confused. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
Back in 1990, Elizabeth Taylor came close to dying from pneumonia. Twenty-one years and many health scares later, it feels so surreal that the iconic actress is actually gone.

Now, we might not be able to drape ourselves in sparkly diamonds, like Liz Taylor, but we can surely adopt her makeup tricks as we remember her life and career. Keep reading »
It’s a nice day for a fight wedding. Over the weekend, 28-year-old bride Angela Davito was arrested at her own wedding. Apparently, some uninvited guests showed up at the reception and started dirty dancing with the bride. This pissed off the groom, and a full-out brawl broke out. The police were called and tried to stop the fighting. When they were unsuccessful, they doused the reception in pepper spray. Firefighters came in to treat guests for pepper spray exposure.

I’m glad that Yelp has finally recognized the hipsters as a category of people that need to eat. Now you can find out if a restaurant or bar is known for its “hipster” ambience. But you’d better act quickly, as once an establishment earns a “hipster” rating, all the actual hipsters stop going there. Maybe Yelp should make a “used to be hipster” option. I went to Yelp and looked up all of my favorite restaurants. I was delighted to discover that I’ve been dining “hipster” and didn’t even know it. How ironic of me. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
