Newsflash! The New York Times interviewed the next hottest male model—a half-Arab dude from Kentucky named A. J. Abualrub, who was “discovered” by Ford Models last year—about his eating habits. He just landed himself an exclusive contract with Calvin Klein and is walking in all the top designer shows in Milan at the moment. That’s him, above, looking a wee bit hungry. You’d think he’s just blab about the usual, how he’s “naturally skinny,” how he was a total “beanpole” growing up, how he can “eat anything he wants,” but nope, he went with the real, live truth! Abualrub admitted that his normal weight is somewhere around 200 pounds and to drop the runway “necessary” 30 pounds, he’s been only eating “like, maybe twice a day” and it’s been a “challenge to take off the weight.” Refreshing! A model that actually cops to the fact that being that skinny isn’t always about genetics. [NY Times] Keep reading »
Nowhere is the difference between men and women so glaring as when it comes down to the demise of a relationship. Specifically, the unexpected, unwanted, one-sided break-up otherwise known as the dumping.
A dumped dude might get angry. Then again, he might just get depressed and mope quietly in his room. He may go to a strip club or pick up a one-night-stand at a bar. What he won’t do is call up all his buddies and poll them about what they think his ex really meant when she quit returning his calls. Nor will he tearfully declare that said ex must have been either too intimidated by his devastating intellect and/or simply too in love with him.

Shia LaBeouf was on “The Today Show” this morning promoting the “Transformers” sequel and when Meredith Viera trotted out a female fan who was dying to meet him, Shia showed his sweet side. In fact, I might have even seen sparks fly! The best part was when Samantha told Shia she had bought her floral printed skirt just for the occasion, then asked him what kind of girl he likes. His response seemed genuine. “All kinds,” he replied. “What are you doing the rest of the day? My day is boring.” Clip above! Keep reading »

What rhymes with rock? Sock, lock, dock, sure, but you know, there is one hard sounding word in particular that goes with rock even more that roll. And that’s exactly what this article is going to get into— musicians and the instrument in their pants. Here are the most legendary dicks ever associated with sweet jams.
Sure, you’ve got a lot floating around inside your head: the boyfriend, the job, the what-the-hell-am-I-going-to-wear-tomorrow. Now, you can stuff everything into your skull — literally. Belgian designer Natalia Brilli, who toiled under Oliver Theyskens making accessories at Rochas, created this unique line of handbags that are in the shape of human noggins. Like Theyskens, Brilli’s taste leans towards the gothic; hence, the accessories’ macabre affect. Although, she’s brought these cranium clutches up to date in silver, purple, and black. Previously, Brilli’s odd works have included a leather-covered skateboard and a leather-covered watch. These, ah, headbags, though, give her collection a more, well, human touch. Do you love ‘em or hate ‘em? [Pipeline] Keep reading »
Sometimes it feels like that whole “best things in life are free” thing is a crock when all you really want are a pair of YSL cage heels or a mansion in the south of France. Okay, so maybe that’s asking for a lot, but at least fashion retailer Topshop gets your point. This summer, the U.S. newbie is offering up lots of free stuff. Beginning June 20th, New Yorkers can rent out free bikes through the Topshop Bike Rental Program, which we’re sure so many Manhattanites are psyched on not only because bike style is completely in these days, but also because NYC has been hard at work creating real bike lanes (go green!). On June 26th, the store will also host a screening at the Brooklyn Yard of “The Blow Up“, a sixties classic about a mod photographer living in London. The event (with an after party!) will be exclusive as entry can be gained only by finding secret tokens hidden in the Topshop store between June 20-25. Put the pedal to the metal!

We’ve always thought Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” was a masterpiece, and it’s even more of one when performed by an orchestra. After the jump, two more pop songs made elegant with the help of violins, French horns, and bamboo. Keep reading »
The best part of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitting he’s been having an affair – with tax payer dollars, no less! – with a mysterious woman named “Maria”? The fact that some of the love letters he sent her have been released! It is true poetry, peoples. Ahem…
”You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night’s light — but hey, that would be going into sexual details…”
Oh please, do continue!
”In the meantime please sleep soundly knowing that despite the best efforts of my head my heart cries out for you, your voice, your body, the touch of your lips, the touch of your finger tips and an even deeper connection to your soul.”
Yowza! That’s, uh, sexy stuff. But how does it compare to the words exchanged during other famous sex scandals? Let’s take a walk down memory lane… Keep reading »
