A saucy catwalk stunt by Bollywood-hearthbrob Akshay Kumar landed him and his wife in the slammer. During Lakme Fashion Week, Kumar, who is brand ambassador for Levi’s “Unbuttoned” collection, attempted to do just that when he paused on the catwalk and asked his wife to unbutton his jeans. It would have been cute, if it wasn’t illegal. According to section 294 of the Indian Penal code this sexy-time stunt violated India’s obscenity laws and is punishable to up to two years in prison.
After the stunt, someone filed a complaint and Kumar’s wife was arrested while Akshay followed by turning himself in to cops. The stunt-loving star apologized to the public and his wife was let out on bail. Sigh, how quickly feeling frisky can lead to being frisked! [Metro.co.uk] Keep reading »
You know that Queen song where they chant “no time for losers” really obnoxiously for, like, five minutes? Well Entertainment Weekly is suggesting the band make time for “American Idol”
loser runner-up Adam Lambert. Since Queen’s lead singer, Paul Rodgers, recently peaced out the band, they need a replacement ASAP. And on the last episode of “Idol,” Kris Allen did a duet of Queen’s “Champions” with Lambert, and his flamboyancy totally reminded us of late Queen singer Freddie Mercury. EW says Adam “has the musical chops and stage presence vital to preserving Queen’s signature sound.” So, should Adam pick up the phone and call Queen, stat? Or should he concentrate on churning out his own tunes? [EW] Keep reading »
Teachers hooking up with their students used to be a rarity — and pretty scandalous. In the last couple years, instances have become commonplace. Now, the practice is going mainstream. Mary Kay Letourneau, the former teacher who was sent to prison for molesting a 12-year-old boy (and then ended up marrying him), is hosting “Hot for Teacher” nights in various clubs and bars around the country. Girl’s gotta make a buck somehow, since she obviously can’t go back to teaching. Her husband, Vili Fualaau, DJs the events. [via Nerve] Keep reading »
Skinny jeans are dangerous! For some wearers of especially tight jeans, nerve compression can occur in the thighs, producing a tingling or numbing sensation. This happened to Parmeeta Ghoman, a 28-year-old San Francisco woman who reported a bizarre tingling sensation in her legs after wearing a pair of the too-tight pants. When she stood up, she couldn’t feel her legs at all and felt like she was floating. The condition, which can be brought on by pressure, say, from super-tight material wrapping around your thighs, is called meralgia paresthetica, or “tingling thigh syndrome.” Wearing high-heels apparently increases the risk of this phenomenon because of how they change your body position.
But don’t get your panties in a bundle just yet—the situation is reversible and not serious. All one has to do is (duh) take off the jeans, ditch the heels, and wear looser pants. This should either come as a relief or fashion death sentence, in which case feel free to sport the skinnies at your own risk. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

I remember how badly I wanted, no needed, an Easy-Bake Oven when I was little. I begged my dad, pleaded with my mom, wept often, and eventually started cooking things in plastic cups on top of lamps in my bedroom cause I’m mad crafty. I got my sweet revenge when that burning plastic smell filled the house. But some girls will do whatever it takes to get what they want, including this woman in China who threw a hissy fit at a car dealership when her guy refused to buy her a car. The event was captured on video and posted on China’s version of YouTube. So far, almost 2 million folks have watched it, and it’s sparked a huge debate about gender. Why? Keep reading »
