Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
For a president who feels so right, there aren’t many more ways to go wrong when it comes to his unfortunate insistence on wearing mom jeans. (Michelle, where are you!?) Because the media keeps blasting his denim, for the sake of keeping the peace in the free world, we’ve picked three alternative styles that we’re sure he could rock. Click through to see how he’d look in sexier jeans.
Madonna’s “Sweet and Sticky” tour has claimed victim #2. While setting up the lighting for Madge’s concert in Marseilles, France, on Thursday, a crane collapsed, killing a 53-year-old French man and a 32-year-old Brit. Madonna has canceled her Sunday concert and sends her deepest condolences to the families. Hopefully the three other people currently hospitalized will have a smooth recovery. [CNN]
Unfortunately, Madonna’s “Sticky” stage situation is not the only concert tragedy to note. The dangerous world of concerts after the jump. Proceed with caution. Keep reading »
It’s always awesome to hear male feminists condemn injustices against women—even more awesome when they’re one of the most powerful men in the world.
Writing in London’s Guardian, arguably the cuddliest ex-president ever, Jimmy Carter, said God would not be happy with how religion is used to sanction violence against women and girls, forced prostitution, and genital mutilation:
This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women’s equal rights across the world for centuries…We need to challenge these self-serving and out-dated attitudes and practices…The truth is that male religious leaders have had — and still have — an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women. They have, for their own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter.
Carter could have taken the wussy way out and been more polite to religious leaders, as not to offend. But he had the chutzpah to say this is not what Jesus would do. Keep reading »
Have you ever seen the Stanley Kubrick movie “Eyes Wide Shut,” starring then-married couple Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman? If so, remember the scene where Cruise’s character goes to that weird mansion and there’s all those masked people having sex and it’s super creepy? Well, that happened for realz in Somerset, England this week, when hundreds of rich people got together for a costume party and it descended into an orgiastic good time. Keep reading »
Mischa Barton is one hot mess. After spending the last few months club-hopping in London and L.A. and living a post-breakup life from indie rock star Luke Pritchard of The Kooks, it seems that all the partying has finally caught up with the 23-year-old actress. On Wednesday, she called police about a yet-to-be-identified health problem and was taken to the hospital. She has still not been released from Ceders-Sinai Medical Center. Which is pretty darn inconvenient because Mischa was expected to be in New York City last night to attend the premiere of her latest movie, “Homecoming.” Sadly, she was unable to make it.

It’s the middle of July and the heat is ON, but sadly, as lovely as summers are, they just don’t have the same kind of magic they did when we were kids, do they? Remember how endless the weeks between mid-June to mid-August used to seem? These days they fly by in a flash and it’s Fall before we’ve even had a chance to collect a single firefly in a jar. After the jump, 10 things I miss most about my summers past. Keep reading »
Everyone’s favorite new shopping mecca (well, for us Americans anyhow), Topshop, has released images from its Autumn/Winter ’09 lookbook. So far, we’re loving the collection that’s pulling some brave styling moves (combining animal and flower prints; pairing bra-tops with blazers for an evening look), as well as bold structures and forms (baggy harem-meets-equestrian pants; multicolored fringe dresses). Overall, the line communicates different style adventures–depending on how you wear them–ranging from updated 80s to Euro-chic. In other words, it’s eclectic. And ya know what, we love it!
We also got a look at designer Emma Cook’s Topshop capsule collection, set to hit U.K stores near the end of the month (…and we hope online for us! Please?).
After the jump, check out more looks and please weigh in: Do you adore or is it too crazy cuckoo? Keep reading »
MTV‘s “16 and Pregnant” was a hot mess last night. Catelynn and Tyler are really sweet, smart, loving, mature kids who want the best for their baby, but their mom and pops are pretty screwed up. Mom is a drunk driver; Tyler’s dad is an ex-con. And, their parents are married. Yeah, Catelynn and Tyler are boyfriend and girlfriend, soon-to-be teen parents—and step-siblings. Wait, is this “Jerry Springer”?
Watch the kids tell their parents their choice is to give their daughter up for adoption because they both want to go to college—and how their parents try to convince them to raise their baby in this bats**t family instead. [MTV] Keep reading »
Why haven’t celebrities like Jennifer Lopez learned that you should never, ever, ever eat a popsicle in public unless you want juvenile bloggers like me to make blow job jokes? [NYC, 7/16/09] Keep reading »
So basically, Kelly Bensimon went on a shopping trip with The Daily Beast for stuff she already owns. (Gold $370 Gryphon shorts? Wore them to a Kim Kardashian party! “Sexy rocker chick” miniskirt from Intermix? It’s already packed for this weekend’s trip to Miami! An “Alaia meets Pocahontas” belt? Just snapped it up!) Seriously, every photo she’s in, Kelly’s pawing a dress or an accessory that’s presently hanging in her closet. So what’s to talk about then? If you ignore the actual “shopping” part of the shopping trip, Kelly offers up some of her usual nuggets of complete and utter nonsense. Gems after the jump! Keep reading »
