Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Science has confirmed something we’ve known since middle school: Women talk more than men—about three times as much—plus we speak at a much faster rate than guys do. According to this study women spit out 20,000 words a day—that’s 13,000 more than most guys say in any given day. The reason? According to Dr. Luan Brizendine, author of The Female Brain, “Women devote more brain cells to talking than men.” She says we’re built to do this in the womb, while guys are wired differently.
Dr. Brizendine also has some other doozies for the age old Mars-versus-Venus debate. “Women have an eight-lane superhighway for processing emotion, while men have a small country road,” she says. Meanwhile, go figure, the part of the brain she calls the ‘sex processor’ is twice as big as in men as it is in women.
So do these findings mesh with the highly scientific research you’ve done in your life? Or does this sound totally right? Keep reading »
It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin. After the jump, Mandy Moore gets back to basics by embracing her real name. Phoenix rises again. Grizzly Bear proves for once and for all that they’re ladykillers. And Jenny Owen Youngs shows girly music can be the dopest. Keep reading »
While we think some celebs, like Michelle Williams, deserve more privacy in their lives, we’re secretly a little happy the paparazzi snap them as they go about their business so we can see what they wear when they’re not walking a red carpet. Michelle Williams always looks so cute and casually put-together when she runs out for coffee, and we love how her shoes look as though she’s walked 1,000 miles in them. Want similar sneaks? Pick a pair from the 10 after the jump, then wear them every single day this summer, making sure not to avoid puddles or mud. Keep reading »
You either are or love someone who is a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fan. For me, it’s my best friend AJ who once wrote “Buffy” fan-fiction and will never live it down. But in saying you’re a Buffy fan, everyone agrees it means you love the TV show, not the 1992 movie. (Which I argue was amazing purely on the basis of Luke Perry.) Yesterday, it was announced that a second “Buffy” movie is in the works—magical words fans of the show have been waiting to hear since it ended six years ago. But they were chagrined to discover that “Buffy” scribe Joss Whedon is not at all involved in this new project. Instead, the remake will be the brainchild of Fran and Kaz Kuzui, who produced the original movie. Oh, and Sarah Michelle Gellar will not be starring in this new flick. Nor will their be any Angel, Willow, Xander, or Spike in this new slayer universe. [HollywoodReporter] Keep reading »
We’ve already told you, like, three times that Brooke Shields dished to Health Magazine that she regrets waiting until she was 22 to have sex. We’re not done obsessing just yet. With all of the Hollywood hookups, it can seem like a lot of stars lose their V-cards sooner rather than later. But that isn’t always the case. Here’s a look at the celebs who decided to wait.
If you’ve ever watched “Rock of Love,” you’re well aware that dating a rock star is passe. Ditto for athletes—who wants a dude whose bicep measurement is bigger than his IQ? No, there’s a new type of guy to lust after—Washington politicos. The Obama administration is ushering in a new throng of young, brilliant, and (dare we say) extremely hot politicians, and Hollywood’s leading ladies are taking notice. Rashida Jones, of “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” is currently dating President Obama’s chief speechwriter, Jon Favreau. Sure, he may be the one who drunkenly groped a Hillary Clinton cut-out during last year’s primary, but this dude is (a) adorable and (b) has one of the highest ranking jobs in the country even though he’s only 27. The couple made their first appearance at the White House Correspondents Dinner and have since been spotted cuddling at a hip Georgetown bar. [Celebitchy]
Then there’s “Private Practice” star Kate Walsh, who’s been getting cozy with Sean Smith, deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Homeland Security. (You know he’s important because his title is so long.) The two were apparently “phone friends” for months, but recently went public. Sean reportedly sent her flowers the day after the Correspondents Dinner to thank her for being his date. Awww…sweet.
We hope other Hollywood ladies catch on. Here are a few more civil unions we have in mind. Keep reading »
Earlier today, we shared a choice quote from the ever-controversial Brooke Shields, who says that if she had it to do over again, she would have gotten down and dirty with a dude long before the ripe, old age of 22. But Brooke—how do you think peeps who lost it really young feel? Let’s take a look, shall we?
Angelina Jolie says that she has been a horn dog for a long time, and even recalls making out with boys in nursery school. She lost her virginity at 14 to her first BF, but her lover must not have been very satisfying because after the deed, she began cutting him with a knife. We hope Brad is good in the sack cuz we kinda like having him around. [FlyLip.com]
As we watched this video for the fifth time in a row, we tried to get a handle on weather this girl is laughing out of joy or pure embarrassment at the ‘hawk on her head. This neon-rainbow brilliance is the latest gem from Celebrityseaborn, the YouTube Channel that churns out a steady rotation of awesomely weird hair styles.
We’ve been longing to interview the hairstylist and owner of Celebrity Status Salon, where this video and our other favorite-The Eyebrow Weave-were taped, but we haven’t been able to track them down…yet. Our investigative hats are still on as we make several phone calls and scour the web, but in the meantime, enjoy this precious new gem of a video. And remember not to try this at home…. Keep reading »
