Vanessa Hudgens’ Bad Ass Neck Tattoo

Vanessa Hudgens got a new tattoo! Of a butterfly! On her neck! Neck tattoos remind me of one thing — getting my bellybutton pierced. When I was 18, I got my navel pierced above a taco shop in San Diego. The place didn’t even have a real piercing bed for me to lay down on, just a folding metal chair. Anyway, the piercer had just gotten his neck tattooed and had a piece of gauze duct-taped over the fresh ink, but blood was still leaking and dribbling down his nape. That’s what I focused on as he drove the needle through my flesh. And that’s what I think about whenever I see a neck tattoo, even one as girly and carefree as Vanessa’s.

Christian Slater And Charlie Sheen Reach Out To Lindsay Lohan

Want to get personal phone call from Christian Slater (yes!) and Charlie Sheen (hell no!)? Lindsay Lohan has a foolproof strategy—get in trouble with the law and then go to rehab. (Relax, people, that is a joke.) Both Christian and Charlie have apparently reached out to Lindsay. Christian tells Details magazine:

“Look, I could spend a lot of time kicking the s**t out of myself for the choices I made. I was dealing with alcoholism and addiction, and there was a lot to take on without much life experience. Addiction is not pretty, and you don’t fully understand it unless you’re dealing with it head-on. That’s why when I see other kids struggling, I will sometimes reach out to them—a call or an e-mail. … Sure, of course [I reached out to LiLo]. I appreciated the people who reached out to me. It’s a brutal position to be in. You feel alone and confused over where your life went and how you got yourself in this situation.”

Charlie had some thoughts for her, too. Keep reading »

She has declined to comment. I personally don’t really care whether they are implants or prosthetics, I just want to know WHY. There’s usually a method to Gaga’s madness, but she hasn’t revealed her master plan yet. After the jump, some theories about what’s up with Lady Gaga’s horns. Add yours in the comments.

Mom Wants Mentally Challenged Daughter Sterilized

Here’s a sticky wicket for you: the mother of a 21-year-old mentally challenged woman in Britain is asking a court for permission to sterilize her daughter so she will not continue getting pregnant. The daughter, who is referred to in court as P to protect her anonymity, already has two young children who are being raised by P’s mother, Mrs. P, who lives with them. However, Mrs. P said she cannot financially support a larger family and that when she took her daughter to a family planning clinic, she refused to get a contraceptive injection (Depo Provera). As Mrs. P described it, if P were to become pregnant again, Mrs. P would put the baby up for adoption. The nature of P’s mental difficulties are not explained by the Guardian, but Mrs. P told the court that P does not seem to understand the gravity of the situation. “I tried to explain that any future babies will go to a new mum and dad,” Mrs. P said. “She doesn’t understand that she won’t ever see them again. She says, ‘I’m the mummy’. She doesn’t understand they will get a new mum.”

Mrs. P continued, “I want the best for my daughter. We are supporting and helping her, bringing up her children and keeping them together as family unit. Obviously we can’t carry on supporting more and more children. She doesn’t see anything wrong in her behavior.” The judge handling the case, however, said that expert evidence was not available to make a judgment and he declined to rule on an “extremely serious and important” issue without it.

Why Don’t Men Settle Down?

Last week, Jennifer Doll offered a familiar lament in the pages of the Village Voice: “Dear Single Women of NYC: It’s Not Them, It’s You.” Though her focus is on New York, Doll could have been describing almost any large American city in which the number of single, straight, employed, and emotionally competent men is apparently dwarfed by the number of women who want to meet them.

The “man shortage” is a perennial go-to for articles aimed at women readers; these pieces differ mainly in the degree to which they blame the crisis on women’s ambition, pickiness, or sexual aggressiveness. Keep reading »
