Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Paris Hilton gets in the holiday spirit. Unrelated: Her hands look totally crrrraaa-zy.
To her credit, Lady Gaga can claim being one of the era’s loudest fashion influences and her resume does boast innovation (meat dresses, anyone?) and important work in the industry (lookin’ hot for MAC, two years in a row). But does that make her qualified to teach college students about fashion? Apparently, the pop star has appealed to NYC’s Parsons School for Design to become an artist-in-residence. A “source” (whatever that means) says that Gaga wants to “use her famous fashion sense and avant-garde art obsession to launch an academic career,” and that “She would like to teach in the fashion-design programme and wants to incorporate elements of music study, popular culture and media studies.” Keep reading »
Apparently, Carrie Fisher’s hobby is outing closeted gay men. Now that she’s clean she has to do something with her time. In the latest issue of The Advocate, she talks about her gay ex-husband (Bryan Lourd), the gay ghost that haunts her (Gregory Stevens), and her favorite gay movie star. Here’s a hint for who she named for that distinction: John Travolta. Keep reading »
Sometimes you can’t help loving something despite the fact that you know it’s kind of wrong. (Except this scenario makes it all the more desirable. For further reading see: most great works of classic literature.) Take, for example, these Juicy Couture sequined fingerless gloves, or “hand warmers” as they are referred to in the description. Aside from being slightly impractical, they’re also something you don’t really need, and the price isn’t exactly budget-friendly. But sometimes you just know what will make you happy.
I went on a first date with this amazing guy the day before Thanksgiving. We made a great connection and hung out all weekend. We both agreed that it felt right and marveled at how easy it was to spend time with each other, and on Sunday he even called me his girlfriend! Normally, I don’t jump into things like that, but we were so into each other that I threw caution to the wind and went with it. A few days later, he called me and said that something happened to his dad (whom he said he has issues with) and that he was hospitalized in a city two hours south of here. He said he needed to focus all his energy on dealing with that and that he couldn’t be my boyfriend right now, explaining that he didn’t want to be with me at all if he couldn’t be with me 100 percent. He said it would be a few weeks before things got back to normal, and then maybe we could start dating again. I’m an eternal optimist and I want to believe that he still wants to be with me eventually, but I can’t ignore my logical side. I think that if he wanted to talk to me, he would have called me by now. Normally, I would shrug it off and move on already, but I’ve never met anyone with whom I’ve had such a strong connection. I want to be with him, and the things he has said lead me to believe that he feels the same way. What should I do? — Rushed Love Lost
Meet George Mauer. Depending on how you look at it, he’s either got really great friends or a bunch of the worst buddies on earth. His “friends” paid for a billboard in New Orleans that calls him “the New Orleans Lover,” and describes him as both loving philosophy and hating cheap alcohol. Has it really come to this, George?
