A Look At MJ’s Costumes For The Tour That Never Was

Michael Jackson‘s costumes for his upcoming tour look like they would have been a veritable fashion show of MJ classics (not to rub salt in the wound, or anything). Described as an “over the top wardrobe,” costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush worked with Jackson who wanted to take things to a new, higher level. This resulted in a collection that brought back to life Jackson’s golden days with his flashy fingerless glove, military jackets, a Billie Jean jacket adorned with over seven pounds of Swarovski crystals. The highlight of the styles, however, has to be the redesigned “Thriller” jacket outfitted with fiber-optic lights that would flash in time with the music. While the costume designers say that Michael was enthusiastic in his last days—performing routines with huge energy, and eager to get the show started—his measurements show that he was incredibly thin with a 27 3/4-inch waist. Regardless, pictures and memories like these will allow Michael’s show to go on. [People] Keep reading »

5 Things We Tell Guys We Don’t Mind, But We Really Do

We all tell little white lies. The world would stop turning and erupt in bloodshed if we said what we really thought all the time. I have been thinking, however, that while I have to constantly change things up with women, I can keep on telling different guys the same altered-truths because their questions never change. Maybe women are more creative with our insecurities or our insecurities are more fluid and likely to change with time. Who knows why, ’tis an unsolved mystery, but until I find my channel my inner Agatha Christie, here are the top five things women tell men they don’t mind, but we really do. Keep reading »

Victoria Beckham Can Get You Arrested

Lebanese national Raffi Nernekian was arrested in Dubai for wearing a Marc Jacobs-designed T-shirt promoting skin cancer awareness with a nude photo of Victoria Beckham. Although all of Posh’s important lady parts were hidden by the “Protect the Skin You’re In” slogan, Nernekian reportedly got into an argument with a local over the shirt. After the argument he left to change his shirt, only to find the police waiting when he returned. He was jailed for a month for “offending public decency.” Although Dubai is a tourist destination even for folks like Paris Hilton (who has recently been searching for a new BFF there), visitors are advised to review the country’s moral and social code before partying it up — or getting dressed.

Your Hair Needs Oribe’s 24K Gold-Inflected Pomade

After Princess Fancypants washes her hair with white truffle oil shampoo and slathers Creme de la Mer between her toes, she sits before her vanity and pouts. Still, something is not right. Shall she polish her skin with Beluga caviar? Clean her ears with the sharpest emerald she can find? No. It is her hair. Her hair simply isn’t right.

Aha! Then she remembers. She opens a small drawer and takes out a bottle of Oribe 24K gold pomade ($49 for 1.7 oz). Its web site says it is “excellent for use on pleasure craft [or] in convertibles” and, wouldn’t you know? That’s exactly where she is headed. At last, she is ready to go.

A 4th Of July Wardrobe That’s Stylishly Patriotic

denim dress 062509 jpg
While you may not think that your Independence Day outfit is all that important, consider this: our forefathers were men who wore powdered wigs, britches and shiny book buckles. That’s right, the original metrosexuals. And if we can’t honor them by looking fine on the 4th, then we’re not fit to be called patriots.

Start your outfit off with a dressy casual base layer like this denim ruffled dress. Accessories, swimsuits and alternates after the jump. [$130, VaVa, Revolve]

Maxi Mounds Wears A 61MMM Bra!

Maxi Mounds, who hails from Long Island, NY, holds the Guinness World Record for “World’s Largest Augmented Breasts.” It took four surgeries for Maxi to get to her 61MMM size, according to Spike TV’s “MANswers.” She says she started “dancing” to pay for school but decided she liked being naked more than studying. She also claims that her measurements are 156MMM-26-36, but we’ll go with the more conservative breast measurement because we can’t possibly see how Maxi would be able to stand upright with 156MMM breasts. Maxi gets major attention on the web, TV, and in strip clubs, but she says the one downside to such ginormous boobs is that she can no longer sleep on her stomach. Bummer. Keep reading »

Celebs We’d Be Happy To Hire — As Interns

Yesterday we told you about The Gap’s new intern, Kanye West, who joins a long line of celebrities (temporarily) giving up their high-paying day jobs in order to learn something new from the ground up. All of this got me thinking about which celebs we’d like to have intern at The Frisky and what tasks we would give them. After the jump, some of our writers and editors dish on who they’d like to fetch coffee and, uh, other stuff. Keep reading »

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Loss Of Confidence

This week I gotta an email from a lady with the subject line “loss of confidence.” Haven’t we all been there?! So, my Frisky friends, let’s show this girl some love and get her back on her feet. Here’s what she had to say about her situation:

“I’m a 22-year-old college student who loves to have sex. However, my 27-year-old boyfriend doesn’t seem interested, not that I blame him. See, he is his grandmother’s caretaker and is required to spend nights at her house, where I’m not allowed to stay the night. I’ve tried to get him to come to my apartment for some alone time, but usually we just spend time at his house, with his grandma. I’m sick of being ignored. I’ve been turned down so many times by him that I’ve given up on ever having sex with him again. When we do have sex, it’s unbelievable and both of us just go nuts. But we haven’t had sex for three months out of our seven month relationship, and when we do, it’s only once a month. I understand him not wanting to have sex in his grandmother’s house, but there are alternatives. I’m at my wit’s end. Help!”

Mapquest Your 4th Of July: Find The Best Events

I’m planning to spend the 4th of July at some friends’ rooftop BBQ in Brooklyn, where, if we’re lucky, we’ll get a view of some fireworks over the Hudson, and if we’re unlucky, we’ll drown our sorrows in lotsa beer. If you haven’t yet figured out what you’re doing tomorrow, Mapquest might be able to help you. Just zoom in to your city, click on their special fireworks icon on the right and see what Independence Day events are going on in your area. It’d be better if they had, like, a “hot guy” icon or “tastiest mini red, white and blue cupcakes” icon, but, whatever, beggars can’t be choosers, I guess. However you decide to celebrate America’s birthday, have a wonderful time and a great holiday weekend! [via Jaunted] Keep reading »
