Here’s one year-end list we’d never want to be on. The Boston Public Health Commission ranked the top 10 worst relationship songs released this year; songs were ranked by the unhealthy messages they sent listeners about relationships and violence against women. At the top of the list? Usher, whose tracks “Lil Freak” and “Hot Tottie” occupied the number one and two spots.
Songs are scored based on their portrayal of relationships, sex, manipulation and disrespect. Songs are ranked by a panel of 100 teens, who, said director Casey Corcoran, “see which ones endorse a healthy or unhealthy relationships.”
Songs were NOT scored based on the reputation of the artists themselves (which is why Usher tops the list and not Chris Brown). Check out the rest of the list after the jump. Keep reading »

I’ve watched my fair share of pornography on the internet and it’s pretty obvious that most of it is made for dudes. Before nudity even occurs, I’m already turned off by the tacky costuming, bad story lines, lack of chemistry, and obviously unwashed stars. I’m a stickler for details. That’s why I’m glad to hear that there’s a lesbian pornographer who actually cares about these things. Jincey Lumpkin (best name ever) went from being a high paid lawyer for the fashion industry to founding Juicy Pink Box, a lesbian porn company. And the Daily Beast is calling her the “Hugh Hefner of Lesbian Porn.” Keep reading »
Awesome future timewaster alert! The just launched blog Bad Sex Ed compiles the best of the worst sex advice people have ever received. It’s only got a few entries so far, but there’s this gem:
My brother told me that I should look deeply into a girl’s eyes while kissing her, that girls were really into that kind of connection. The first time I kissed a girl, she luckily knew better. After a few seconds of staring at her blurry eyelids, I followed suit.
After the jump, read the worst sex advice I ever received — and then share yours in the comments. Keep reading »
Good lord, I love Michelle Williams
and this interview with her on “Nightline” is pretty amazing. She talks about making “Brokeback Mountain,” falling in love with Heath Ledger, and coping with his death. “In a strange way I miss that year [after his death],” she says. “It didn’t seem unlikely to me that he could walk through a door, or could appear behind a bush. In some ways, I am just, I am sad to be moving further and further away from it.”
She also talks about making “Blue Valentine” with Ryan Gosling. Keep reading »
“Your Highness,” the James Franco
, Danny McBride, Natalie Portman
, and Zooey Deschanel
flick that opens this spring, looks like it’s posturing to be the new “Princess Bride.” Judging from the trailer, it also looks like it’s going to fall way short. But that’s not the point. Apparently, the original trailer—which you can see here
—contained cursing and Natalie Portman’s bare backside in a g-string, and thus could only be shown before R-rated movies. And so this second version of the trailer was created. And in addition to cleaning up the language, they’ve added fabric to Natalie’s thong, morphing it into a normal bikini. Fascinating, as CGI nudity
usually goes in the other direction. [EW
