Mandy Moore is a whole new woman these days. Not only is she a newlywed (her husband is musician Ryan Adams), but she has an album coming out May 26. The video for her first single, “I Could Break Your Heart Any Day of The Week,” is out, and after watching it, we’ll be very interested in hear her other new songs. While Mandy was über pop-tastic back in her early days, her last album, Wild Hope, was very folksy and more our speed. Has she gone back to a more “Candy”-like style, or has Ryan had an influence on her sound? I guess we’ll find out when Amanda Leigh hits stores next month. Keep reading »
You can find anything on Craigslist — a housekeeper, a used armoire, a new job. As easy as it is to find goods and services on Craigslist, it’s even easier to set up a fling by perusing the Casual Encounters personal ads, which account for two percent of all postings on the site. Users of Casual Encounters enjoy the ability to be candid and the anonymity, says founder Craig Newmark. For example, one user meets men who answer her ad, takes off her underwear, and gives it to them without saying a word. Even though she has a stalker, she continues to indulge her fetish. But this isn’t the first time complications have arisen through the site. Keep reading »
Joey Tribbiani said his man purse, or “murse,” kept him really organized on this infamous episode of “Friends.” And he was right! A man bag with neat pockets and dividers is much more organizable than a backpack, briefcase, or pocket. Louis Vuitton seems to have considered this when planning its recession strategy. The luxury retailer is offering a collection of chic metallic and logo emblazoned murses that resemble the traditional shapes of luggage but are much smaller than a weekender size. Men need somewhere, besides our handbags, to put their stuff, but man bags often look like a slightly more utilitarian version of a woman’s purse. What do you think?

For girls who love safe sex as much as new lip goo, The Body Shop and MTV have debuted a dragon fruit/shea lip butter to raise money for MTV’s Staying Alive campaign. About $5 from each fruity butter will go towards Staying Alive, which promotes safe sex and teaches HIV/AIDS awareness among young people. Beauty for a worthy cause—we love it!

A poster for the “Gossip Girl”-spinoff “Valley Girls” has been released, and it doesn’t make us at all excited for the show. Instead, it reinforces the poor casting of Brittany Snow as the young Lily van der Woodsen. [Videogum]

While men love it when we blow them, can women get blown, too? I’m talking literally — with smoke. That’s what I’ve been wondering on 4/20 (remember kids, don’t do drugs!). Erowid, the online encyclopedia of drugs, answers this burning question:
I was sitting around with my girlfriend yesterday, smoking marijuana out of a bong. We decided to try an experiment, so I exhaled a bong hit into her vagina and held it closed for a few seconds. When I let go, a significant amount of smoke was forced out. I did this three times, and a few minutes later she reported feeling high. My girlfriend has asthma, which prevents her from smoking up as much as she wants to. If vaginal administration of marijuana smoke is safe, it would allow her to get high without irritating her lungs. Is this safe for the vagina and the rest of the body?

First, he allegedly cheated with a firecrotch. Then, Sarah Jessica Parker went from blond to full-fledged brunette. Yesterday, at the opening of “Mary Stuart,” Matt’s got mutton chops. Is this mid-life/wife crisis headed for split ends? We sure hope SJP doesn’t wash that man right out of her hair. [New York City, 4/19/09]

I scratched my head the first time I saw this Quizno’s commercial for the Toasty Torpedo sandwich. I wasn’t confused by the homoerotica. Hey, sex can sell anything! What was perplexing was that it seemed as though the Quizno’s employee had had sex with the talking oven. As it turns out, I was a little behind the times. People having sex with objects (and I’m not talking sex toys) is nothing new. Keep reading »
