Woman Allegedly Punched By NYC Cop

A NYC cop allegedly punched a woman, grabbed her breasts and told her he was going to “treat her like a woman.”

Chrissie Brodigan, 32, tells Gothamist she exited a NYC subway with her pet pug, who was throwing up, when a cop tried to issue her a ticket for not carrying the dog inside a container. She became upset when the cop allegedly said, “If you’re going to act like a woman, I’m going to treat you like a woman.” Brodigan says the officer punched her in the back, leaving her bruised, as well as grabbed her breasts and pinched them. (This photo, pulled from Gothamist, shows her alleged bruises.) Keep reading »

Get Hot Goods (In More Than One Way) For Cheap!

Screw eBay, this morning on the “The Today Show” we learned of an auction site way better (and cheaper) than Meg Whitman’s site. Retired Detective Tom Lane came up with a website to sell off all of the stolen goods police stations seize, calling it PropertyRoom.com. Profits are split with the individual precincts that hand over the goods—and all of the merch has been exhaustively advertised for it’s real owner(s) before being put up for grabs. (And don’t worry, if you recognize an item that’s yours on the website, they’ll get it back to you when you prove it’s yours.) Want a mack truck? How about a diamond engagement ring? Or clothes and bags and bikes? [The Today Show] Keep reading »

Or better yet collect child support from one. It seems she’s collected the sperm of a dozen athletes and is ready to sell off her collection to the highest bidder. Continue reading Keep reading »

Gallery: MANriah And Other Singers Who Like To Cross-Dress

If you were walking past the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan yesterday and happened to see a scruffy looking man in a track suit with oddly feminine features rocking a pointed goatee worthy of Billy Mays, then you just saw Mariah Carey. Yup, the diva shed her skintight dresses and skyscraper stilettos for bushy eyebrows and a grey hoodie while shooting her new music video for the song “Obsessed.” The singer crossed gender lines to play the Eminem-esque male role herself. But don’t worry. Most of the video features Mariah in her usual R&B glamness. [Daily Mail]

MANriah is not the only diva to cross-dress in a music video. Check out these other singers who flipped genders while rocking out.

Quick Pic: How Many Hail Marys Will This Ad Agency Be Saying?

The British Advertising Standards Authority banned this Federici ice cream ad after readers complained about the nun’s “seductive pose.” Yeah, we don’t like thinking about what she was going to do with that spoon, either. Keep reading »

Five Love Lessons From “Gone With The Wind”

Today marks the 73rd anniversary of the publishing of Margaret Mitchell’s epic Civil War novel, Gone With The Wind. I’ve read the book 20 times (that’s 20,960 pages in total, y’all!), watched the movie at least a dozen times, and have gleaned numerous lessons, particularly about relationships, with the turn of every page. I’ll share, after the jump… Keep reading »

5-Year-Old Is Sole Survivor Of A Plane Crash

Yemenia Airways Flight 626 very sadly crashed early this morning in the Indian Ocean. And of the 142 passengers and 11 crewmembers on board, the sole survivor is a 5-year-old boy. The flight was set to land at the Comoros Islands having originated in France, but descended through bad weather and lost contact with air traffic control. In 2007, faults had been reported with this jet and it seems that the 70-mile per hour winds the plane faced on landing got the best of it. Very scarily, this is the second airbus to crash into the ocean this month. On the other hand, there is one very fortunate survivor. [ABC] Keep reading »

The 2010 Met Ball Is Gonna Be Mini

With the Metropolitan Musuem of Art cutting fourteen percent of it’s staff (169 employees, to be exact) and the economy, well, continuing to not do so hot, there’s a big, giant question mark as to next year’s Vogue-sponsored Costume Institute Gala reports Fashion Week Daily. According to two uber-insiders, the 2010 Ball “will be a much less splashy affair–a move the museum is said to welcome. The guest list will consist mostly of trustees and benefactors who purchase full-priced tickets instead of the designers, models and Hollywood types who once sat at their comped tables.” If you ask me, this isn’t such a bad change—in recent years the celeb circus grew to unnecessary proportions. Smaller can be better! [Fashion Week Daily] Keep reading »

Vibe Magazine Folds

The demise of the magazine industry continues. VIBE magazine has folded. This comes just after fellow music magazine Blender went the way of the gun, so this loss was not entirely unexpected with the drop in music buys coupled with a crash in ad sales. VIBE was started by music producer (who worked on Michael Jackson‘s Thriller to name just one) Quincy Jones and catered to specifically to urban music like hip-hop and R&B. The folding of VIBE leaves Teh Source as the only magazine to target hip hop and R&B music. Bummer. As we always like to find the silver lining in things, we’ll take this as an opportunity to post super sexy T.I.’s VIBE cover from last year. [Gawker] Keep reading »
