Screw It, We’re Wearing Jelly Sandals

We’ve spent years eschewing jelly sandals, turning our backs on the sheer plastic beauties we grew up with. We’re too old for those, we thought, gazing wistfully, but moving on to more grown up footwear. Well, screw it, jellies are back with a vengeance, and I’m leaving leather and other perhaps more legitimate footwear material behind for the molded, vaguely smelly plastic of yore. They give you blisters at first, and the whole time you’re wearing them you’ll intermittently wonder if maybe wearing shoes made entirely of rubber in 100-degree heat isn’t the best idea. But as you and your jellies get to know one another again, you’ll remember why you loved them so much when you were a kid and wonder why you let anyone tell you they’re terrible. Sandals this old school-cute don’t deserve to be vilified like that! ($15, New York & Company) Keep reading »

Kanye And Jared Leto Team Up, Plus The Worst Celebrity Duets Of All Time

Kanye West and Jared Leto wanna rock you like a “Hurricane” with their new duet. For the past decade, Jordan Catalano Jared has fronted emo band, 30 Seconds To Mars. And somehow, he’s managed to wrangle hip-hop legend Kanye for a cameo on their upcoming record. [MTV] — While this combo sounds promising, alas, history has a tendency to repeat itself. We hope their duet won’t join the list of the most infamous flops of all time.

Clearly, just like us, Kanye is a sucker for pretty-boy Leto. He took time out of his busy schedule to pose with his Grace Jones look-a-like girlfriend, Amber Rose, and even sang on Jared’s track sans his beloved Auto-Tune. It must be luv! Leto dished about the bromance to MTV. “My favorite is when [Kanye] sings, as opposed to rapping,” he said. “I told him that—that I really like him as a singer.”

Aw, sounds like they would make beautiful music together, if you know what we mean. But as far as their actual song goes, we have our doubts. Just take a look at these collaborations gone wrong.

“There’s A Condom In My French Fries” And Six Other Very Unhappy Meals.

It was a sad day for a seven-year-old girl in Switzerland. She got more than a prize in her McDonald’s Happy Meal—allegedly, she found a condom in her french fries. Cops are investigating how the condiment got there and if it contained any … special sauce. [MSNBC] — I’ll think I’ll stick to ketchup. This gross mishap reminded us of some other surprises people have found in their food over the years.
