Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Noted redhead Emma Stone appeared at a benefit this weekend a newly bottle blonde, allegedly for her role in “Spider-Man.” Add some 40s and an ankle monitoring bracelet and the Lindsay Lohan transformation (“Lohan-sformation”) will be complete. Stop the madness now, Emma! [12/5/10, Los Angeles] Keep reading »
I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, the last three months of which have been long distance as I had to move for grad school. We only live three hours apart, so we still get to see each other a couple times a month. For most of the last three months, we have been fine — I felt happy, secure, and more fulfilled in a relationship then I ever had been before. However, for the last two or three weeks I just plain feel like I don’t have a boyfriend. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to spend time together recently. Our conversations have not been particularly interesting and I feel like he isn’t putting in a lot of effort. He hardly ever compliments me or returns it when I compliment him, his idea of sympathy is saying “that’s too bad,” and he’s even reticent to return my dirty texts. I feel bad, because he’s not particularly verbally expressive and I feel like I’m being too needy, but I don’t feel content, fulfilled, or even particularly happy right now. I’ve stopped trying because I’m tired of nagging him to be more affectionate and to take initiative. I feel like it would be better if we were actually in the same area code, but moving is not financially possible for him, and there are no graduate programs close to him that I could transfer to. Is there anything I can do or should I just MOA? — Up against a wall
“I guess my life of crime started by stealing cologne [in junior high]. We’d keep [cologne sample bottles] in the locker, in our gym locker at school and we’d sell some from the lockers …”
—James Franco from his interview on “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” I hope he was stealing/selling Drakkar Noir. That was the only dude scent worth wearing in junior high. I suppose James refers to this as his earliest work of “performance art.” [NY Post] Keep reading »
Oxytocin, that amazing hormone that gets you high when you fall in love, may be the miracle cure for mental illness. Researchers have been using the love spray as an experimental treatment for schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, and autism. How does it work? Scientists don’t know exactly, but increased levels of oxytocin in the brain are are associated with social bonding, increased trust, and a general easing of stress and tension in the brain’s stress center. Uh, love potion # 9 is here, friends. Can you imagine what will happen when love spray becomes available to the masses? Bring on Utopia. [Live Science] Keep reading »
Josh Duhamel—aka Mr. Fergie—made a diva of himself last week. As his plane taxied to the runway for takeoff, he refused to turn off his Crackberry. When a flight attendant asked him for a third time and he laughed off the request, the attendant called the gate for assistance and the plane had to return to the gate so Josh could be escorted off. Oopsies. Josh has, of course, apologized for the incident. “I learned that it’s best to always turn them off, not my favorite moment,” he said. “Lesson learned.” [Access Hollywood] On the bright side, Josh is in good company! Read on for a list of other celebrities who had an issue at the airport before they even got off the ground.
