The 28-Day Meditation Challenge: Can Focusing On Breathing Change Your Life?

I am the opposite of new-agey. I have only gone to a psychic once, in New Orleans, and tuned out immediately when it was obvious that homegirl had no idea what she was talking about. I have never been very interested in horoscopes, mostly because the attributes ascribed to my sign, Taurus—stubborn, down-to-earth, bullheaded—never seemed particularly embraceable. And neither Madonna‘s biceps nor all my friends who adore it have been able to convince me to try yoga—mostly because my parents are devotees (in fact, my dad quit his job as a stockbroker to teach yoga) and whatever your parents do just isn’t cool. So when Sharon Salzberg, a friend of a friend and a meditation teacher for more than 30 years, asked me to be part of the 28-day meditation challenge outlined in her new book, Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation, for the month of February, I wanted to run. Like, fast. Keep reading »

Check out the story of Emilie and Alan after the jump. Keep reading »

Gwyneth Paltrow Has A Message For Her Haters

“Any time you do anything with any degree of sincerity, people make fun of you. That’s totally fine. I don’t care. I don’t read any of it. My thing with Goop has always been, if you don’t like it, then don’t log onto it. There were a couple of times when I thought, ‘I’m just gonna stop doing it. People are so mean to me. I don’t want to do it.’ But then I was like, ‘Who cares what some lame person out there says?’ I was in Italy once, and this old man came up to me and said, ‘I had the best time in Nashville because of Goop.’ And that is so worth it to me.”

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t care about the haters, really she doesn’t! Look, I’m definitely one of the many people who, I suppose, is “mean” to Gwyneth. I like to think of it as tough criticism and underneath all the snark, there’s some valid criticism that I think it would behoove Paltrow to listen to. So, yes, it’s kind of mean to say that her Goop newsletter makes GP seem like a snotty, out-of-touch twat, but perhaps if I put it in kinder language, she’ll listen. Ahem… Keep reading »

Tracy Morgan caused a big stink last week when he said, “Now let me tell you something about Sarah Palin, man, she’s good masturbation material. The glasses and all that? Great masturbation material.” But he couldn’t control himself Sunday night at the SAG Awards, and he screamed on the red carpet, “Sarah Pain, you’re the hottest MILF in the world!” Turner, which aired the awards show, was quick to a release a statement about Tracy’s outburst. “It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments. We apologize for any embarrassment or offense it may have caused.” [Huffington Post, NY Daily News]

Were Tracy’s comments crude? Sure. But I suspect that Tracy in a weird, kind-of-creepy way is trying to pay Sarah a compliment. And he’s not the first to cross the line. After the jump, more famous folks reveal their celebrity lust objects.
