Crave: Andy Warhol Quote Plates

Eating off of Andy Warhol’s face may not be the most appetizing idea, but we’re wild for these pop-tastic small plates bearing the visage of the eccentric Factory founder and his clever quips, like, “Art is what you can get away with.” For so cheap, we were amazed they aren’t throwaway paper plates!

Why Make Saudi Women’s Waistlines Suffer?

Gotta love that Saudi Arabia. Not only do ladies have to fully cover up, now they have to let their bodies go, too. With religious clerics holding so much sway over the government, Saudi gyms are legally segregated by gender—male gyms get licenses from the government, but there is no authority to grant licenses to women’s fitness hubs. Now, female gyms operating as “beauty salons” (wink, wink) are being shut down. Hey, don’t deprive a woman of her hand weights! [Reuters via Yahoo!]

13 Celebs Who Swore To Stay Virgins

Miley Cyrus photo
She might be dating an underwear model, but Miley Cyrus isn’t getting in his pants. The teen star swears that despite living with 20-year-old BF Justin Gaston, she is a still a virgin. I didn’t realize her vagina was under contract, too — Mickey Mouse runs a tight ship! But perhaps I shouldn’t blame for Disney for trying to do damage control on the wild child, when she might be a dedicated follower of a trend. Here’s the chastity club to which she belongs …

Why Are Weddings Getting Weirder?

Over the weekend, British budget airline easyJet announced that it hopes to soon hold in-flight wedding ceremonies. It’s not official yet, but the airline is looking into whether it can get its pilots authorized to officiate weddings in the air, a feat that may be easier said than done, as Heather Dsenisi, deputy registrar at the Southampton Registry Office, explains: “Officially, British marriages have to be conducted in a licensed building, which has to be a permanent structure that doesn’t move, and the ceremony has to be officiated by a minister of religion or by a registrar employed by a local council.” If easyJet does manage to get the go-ahead and couples start marrying mid-flight, their nuptials will join a growing trend of increasingly weird weddings. In the last year, we’ve seen a candy shop wedding, a Taco Bell wedding, Barbie weddings, and even a Hello Kitty wedding. Are these quirky ceremonies just good fun, or do they mock the sanctity of marriage? Have weddings been reduced to nothing more than an avenue to express creativity? Keep reading »

Awkward Erectile Dysfunction Commercials Might Disappear From TV

Representative Jim Moran has a problem with erectile dysfunction. We’re not sure whether he suffers from ED, but he doesn’t like those TV ads for Viagra and Cialis. Last month, this Virginia democrat introduced a bill that would prohibit any ED ads from airing on broadcast radio and TV between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. because they’re “indecent.” Moran says he has had a number of people tell him they’re tired of having to explain to their young kids what erectile dysfunction is whenever one of the commercials comes on TV. One CNN.com reader commented that the ads don’t just make for uncomfortable conversations with children: “It is not only for the children and young people, but it is also embarrassing for mixed company adults. Not only is it embarrassing, those love scenes of planned sex have made me sick of sex.” Keep reading to watch a sampling of ED ads, then tell us whether they make you squirm. [CNN] Keep reading »

White Jeans, Unzipped

Before you assume you can’t wear white denim, consider these tricks. I’m not a size zero or two — far from it — and blanco jeans don’t look tragic on me.

  • Buy a half size or a full size bigger. When they’re white, tight jeans flatter no one. Avoid the sausage leg look—no one is looking at your size tag. I’m a fan of the J.Crew cropped matchstick jeans with platform heels. [$85, J.Crew]
  • You can go cheap—but try them on first. The cheaper the jean, the thinner the jean. With regular wash, thin is fine—but with white denim you can see everything. No one needs to see cellulite through your jeans. I have an old Gap pair that are super thick and cost me less than $60, and I love Lucky bootlegs. [$99, Lucky Brand]
