It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin. In this week’s big records, Jack White reigns with The Dead Weather’s debut record, we make a Discovery with Vampire Weekend/Ra Ra Riot’s side project, Twista rips through more hits, and Sean Kingston has a shorty Fire Burning on the dance floor.

Barbara Walters is having a very educational week. Sexually, we mean. Last week Margaret Cho visited “The View” and gave Barbara a lesson on the G-spot. Then, over the weekend, Barbara saw “Bruno” and learned more than she cared to about anal and giving oral sex. I saw “Bruno” this weekend as well and was shocked to see a man in his, I swear, 90′s, sitting front row and center. I was concerned he would have a heart attack. Anyhoo, check out Babs’ disgust in the clip above. [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Just when you thought he couldn’t get tastier, Robert Pattinson goes and puts on a suit. And man, does he clean up real nice! Of course, we’ll also take him in his usual dirty grunge hotness too. [NYC, 7/13/09] Keep reading »
Urban Outfitters is having a mega sale online right now and there’s tons of cool and cute stuff under $10. We know the economy is in the crapper right now, but occasionally a gal deserves a treat. For the more OCD among us, get crackin’ on your Christmas shopping a lil’ early. I’m sure tie dye leggings and breakfast floss will be the IN stocking stuffers of 2009. Ten under $10, after the jump… Keep reading »
Like every other starlet in the world, Vanessa Hudgens has chosen to go nude in her latest, um, film project, Sucker Punch, where she’ll be stripping down to her skivvies or less. “I’m playing a character named Blondie and it’s set in a brothel in the 1950s, so there’s not a whole lot of clothes,” said Hudgens. Sure, sure. “I think this is my time to really step it up and get to grow up. It will be somewhat different with the content and a few more foul words…” Kudos to the Disney princess for taking the big step to shed her little girl image and stuff. But couldn’t she have found a more original route? So many actresses stripping, so little time. [Metro.co.uk] Keep reading »
Hold that credit card! Double X excerpted a section from the forthcoming book, Cheap: The High Cost of Discount Culture, by Ellen Ruppell Shell, which reveals the scams at outlet malls are lamer than the kids who hang out in the food court all day.
The author visited at an outlet mall in Las Vegas with a prices and branding expert to scope out the “deals.” At a Crescent jewelry store, the ladies examine an $832 diamond-and-white-gold pendent, marked down from $3,329, which the jewelers are eager to give them “a better price on.” But back at home, Shell does a little googling and discovers the pendent’s diamonds can just barely pass as gemstones according to diamond grades. Plus, nearly identical pendents could be found on eBay for only $229!
Yeah, markups pretending to be markdowns suck. And it’s sneaky that stores selling comparatively-cheap wares at inflated prices are shacking up next to the Barney’s Co Op and La Perla so they look fancier. But…that’s business, isn’t it? Keep reading »
Having a little trouble staying a virgin until your wedding night? Do you also have an iPhone? Then download the Purity Ring iPhone app where you can take a pledge to be chaste until marriage and look at a digital picture of a purity ring, instead of wearing one. [Cause that would be, like, totally embarrassing. -- Editor]
According to the Guardian, the iPhone app has pre-recorded pledges for both boys and girls and will only display the ring after the pledge is made. Available at the iTunes store, kiddies. But so you know, further investigation is needed to ascertain whether you can actually count on a digital purity ring when temptation strikes… [Guardian UK] Keep reading »
Meh, probably not much. (But could come in handy at the next family reunion group shot!) Still, every celebrity has a signature, go-to stance they use in order to look slim and tall and hot on the red carpet. Megan Fox has the side-stand, chin down and look-over-the-shoulder move down, even managing to strike it while standing with her costar, above. Most stars are pretty damn obvious when they strike their signature poses (hi, Paris Hilton arm on hip and arched back!), but others are a little more sneaky. Here are a few versions hitting Hollywood red carpets these days…
It turns out some women are having babies for the wrong reasons. I won’t mention any names (cough, Nadya, cough), but according to Women’s Health, the social, psychological, and hormonal benefits of getting preggers are making some women wanna pop ‘em out like there’s no tomorrow. When a woman is rockin’ a baby bump, she gets mucho attention from her friends, family, hubby, and even strangers—which makes gals feel less lonely and is heaven for those attention-starved chicks.
