We all loved slap bracelets when we were kids — we played with them (until they were banned), simply because they’re addictively fun. Duh. Now we can be “adults” and have our slap, too, by wearing these slap bracelet watches. The cool rubber is super durable and the watch face can be popped out and put into another color band, which makes one perfect no matter what you’re wearing. And if you buy one for a friend, you can swap out colors with each other! [$17.95, Slap Watch] Keep reading »
There is no greater challenge to female celebrity-dom than the inevitable moment of camel toe exposure. Sure, we may walk around rocking the camel toe in our yoga pants, but there’s not a pack of paparazzi documenting the comings and goings of our labias. You may think you know everything about your favorite celebrity — but can you identify her by her camel toe alone? Find out with our name that celebrity camel toe quiz. Let’s start with this recent, egregious toe-sposure. Here’s your clue: She’s one of the greatest singers of all time who chose the worst pants of all time. Is it:
A) Christina Aguilera?
B) Mariah Carey?
C) Kelly Clarkson?
I like this version of Alanis Morissette’s song “You Oughta Know” much better, thanks to the cross-eyed bear in it. Quick question: was it the bear that she went down on in a theater? I hope not. [BuzzFeed]

Normally, I view ads as things to be fast-forwarded past. But this one for Logitech Revue with Google TV is pretty awesome. It stars Kevin Bacon as … Kevin Bacon’s biggest fan—the president of his fan club who commissioned an oil painting of himself with Sir Bacon. Best line: “His best movie is probably a tie between all of them. ” Keep reading »
I’ve always been shocked by the statistic that 93 percent of American women take their husband’s last name. But there’s one group that’s overly represented in the seven percent who don’t—celebrities. It makes sense because, once you get to the point where you’re famous, your name is a brand. It’s the way people have, and most likely will continue to, see you. Changing it is just confusing. After all, what would we make of Reese Toth? Or Drew Kopelman?
That’s why it comes as sort of surprise that Lily Allen, who has released two albums that went Gold in the U.S. and triple platinum in the UK, has not only legally changed her name following her marriage to Sam Cooper, but professionally as well. Should she ever release a third record (please, Lily, won’t you?), it’ll be under the name Lily Rose Cooper. When your name is integral to your brand as an entertainer, a move like this mid-career seems risky to me. I mean, I really don’t think I’ll be changing my professional name to Amelia Gosling, you know? [Rolling Stone]
Anyway, keep clicking for other stars who changed their names post-marriage.
“Charlie Sheen gets to have his moment in a hotel room with hookers and becomes cool, getting kudos from it. If that was a girl she’d be considered a dirty little slapper [a whore] and pounded out of town. Girls have to be so nice. A girl can’t even say something vaguely confrontational in an interview, it’s all about sweetness. It makes everything so insipid.”
— Ex-”Bond” girl and more recent “Made In Dagenham” star Rosamund Pike does not sound the least bit “insipid” speaking out on Hollywood’s double standards. [Contact Music] Keep reading »
