Chloe Sevigny, Stylish Even Whilst Skateboarding

Chloe Sevigny (alongside various NYC hipsters) stars and skates in the video for “Any Fun” by Jason Schwartzman’s musical outlet, Coconut Records. You might remember that Chloe used to hang out in New York City’s Washington Square Park with skater kids after lying to her parents about her whereabouts. Well, apparently she learned a few tricks when she was skipping school. Chloe’s no stranger to music videos, either, having starred in Sonic Youth’s “Sugar Kane” video in the ’90s. Since she’s such a trendsetter, maybe we’ll all start wearing Mexican Baja hoodies in a few months. Or not. We still haven’t gotten on her whole socks with sandals bandwagon. Keep reading »

D.C. Isn’t Thrilled About MTV’s “Real World” Filming

Some D.C. folks have not rolled out the welcome mat for “The Real World: D.C.” cast members and the whipped cream/hot tub/fake lesbian make out sessions sure to come. Quite the opposite, in fact! A couple D.C.-ers are grousing daily about their fratty new neighbors on the Anti-Real World D.C. blog.

Explaining their, um, lack of hospitality in a post earlier this week, one writer explained that the blog “was created to serve as a forum for those who care deeply about what goes on in their neighborhoods— whether it be welcoming seven strangers with open arms or telling them to go home.” Keep reading »

Grandma Lee: America’s Own Susan Boyle

Grandma Lee, a contestant on last night’s episode of “America’s Got Talent,” doesn’t sing, dance, or do magic. She simply tells jokes — ones you wouldn’t expect a 75-year-old grandmother to tell. I thought the show was setting her up to bomb, but she really was kind of funny and had great delivery. I didn’t expect sweet and wrinkled Grandma Lee to talk about her daughter losing her virginity. The judges sent her to Vegas to compete some more, and I’ll be curious to hear her next stand-up routine. If singers are more your thing, you should also check out Barbara Padilla’s performance. She’s actually a diva in the real meaning of the word. Keep reading »

How To Really Meet A Woman

Julieanne Smolinski over at Lemondrop had the pleasure of attending a “Pick-Up Artist” seminar, in which poor saps shelled out nearly $3,000 to be educated by Love Systems Inc. (formerly known as the Mystery Method). The advice was pretty pathetic, and I’m about to save some schmucks a lot of money. Keep reading »

Laura Ling Calls Sister Lisa From North Korean Labor Camp

In June, journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee were sentenced to 12 years in a labor camp, after crossing into North Korea while working on a story for Current TV about the sad lives of the country’s female refugees. Hillary Clinton is hustling to try to get the two released, but so far things aren’t going very well. The only good news in the story is that Laura’s sister, Lisa Ling, who you probably remember from “The View,” got a call from her last night. “It was a tremendous relief to hear Laura’s voice. The silence has been just so terrifying and deafening,” Lisa told a radio station this morning. “She was very specific about the message she was communicating and she said, ‘Look, we violated North Korean law and we need our government to help us. We’re sorry about everything that happened, but now we need diplomacy.” Let’s hope it works. [AFP via Yahoo News] Keep reading »

Are You Down With Cosabella’s New Girdle-Thong?

Cosabella, maker of lacy thongs and responsible party for that rampant butt-cleavage trend that helps show them off, has come out with a new type of butt-floss that is decidedly less sexy: The “smooth thong” features a tummy-tucking girdle that comes up to your bellybutton. The first “novelty shapewear thong,” the garment aims to eliminate panty lines and stomach bulges while wearing body-skimming clothes. Apparently, Cosabella is marketing the product to college women as a solution to the Freshman 15. Yeah, we know. Keep reading »

Agyness Deyn: Dim-Witted Or A Publicity Genius?

Today’s New York Times Style section covers the rise and possible bail out of It Girl fashion model Agyness Deyn. Will she pursue acting? Singing? Will she leave modeling altogether? Well, you won’t get any straight (or even vaguely specific) answers from her, not even on the more benign questions. (It seems she’s gone to the Kelly Bensimon school of question answering—talk in circles about unrelated topics and hope the interviewer doesn’t notice!) But, as the NYT reporter suggests, does she actually have nothing going on upstairs, or is it just a way to fend off a line of questioning, remain elusive and thus intriguing to most everyone? You decide. Some Agy gems, after the jump! Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Could You Date A Man Who Didn’t Call Himself A Feminist?

Men only care about sex. All men are violent and abusive. Women are victims. Women aren’t capable alone and need a man’s help.

Sometimes it seems like the erroneous beliefs attributed to feminism are so negative that only LiLo could have worse PR. So, why is it a surprise when the men we fall in love with are skittish about embracing the term?

I don’t recall how it came up over the weekend, but my boyfriend still managed to raise my eyebrows when he said that wouldn’t describe himself as a feminist. Keep reading »

Internet First! Woman Is Charged With Seducing A Female Teen Online

I’ve heard about creepy old men trolling the internet to lure in underage girls, but I’ve never heard about a woman doing this… until now. Sarah Wilson, 21, seduced a 15-year-old girl whom she met in a chat room. Over the course of six months, Wilson comforted the lonely teenager through text messages, emails, and phone calls. When the two decided to meet in London this past January, the teen ditched school for the day. The school called to inform her mom that she was missing and she called the police. The cops spotted her at the Kings Cross station, before she got in contact with her 21-year-old suitor. Then, using the girl’s cell phone, the police were able to target and arrest Wilson.

Juicy Couture Rolls Out Pink Keyboard For Ladies (If You Couldn’t Already Guess)

Juicy Couture has come out with this flexible bubblegum pink keyboard that says, “Computers are for girls, too!” Groan. As if trying in some shallow attempt to prove that women can be fashionistas (hate that word) and smart too, the upper right hand corner advertises the slogan, “Juicy Genius.” This, however, is easily negated by the space bar’s vapid command, “Choose Juicy.”

Hey, if you’re still wearing your Juicy tracksuit circa 2003, here’s at least something you can roll up to put in its pocket, right? [$45, Nordstrom.com] Keep reading »
