Sometimes we link to your celebrity gossip stories in “Star Couplings” or “Quickies,” but we might not be doing that for awhile, or ever again, thanks to this little post. Yeah, we know that a lot of gossip sites making fun of and ridicule celebrities, but your post about Jennifer Hudson’s sister went way too far. Whoever killed Julia Hudson’s mother, brother, and son — the police have arrested her husband William Balfour — did so because he is a disgusting, depraved human being and not for any reason connected with the way Julia looks. Your headline, “The Hudsons Were Killed Over This Woman????”, not only makes light of a tragic situation, but it also shows a complete lack of understanding of the motivations behind domestic violence. And it’s just really, really effing mean.

In case you missed the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” on CBS last night, the New York Post reports that at least one of the models was “fat.” Yes, fat. The Post was at the taping in Miami last month and knows for a “fact” that model Karolina Kurkova had put on the pounds, at least according to a woman at the show sitting next to reporter Raakhee Mirchandani. “‘She really porked out,’ the woman whispered. “’It’s good she dropped a little bit of weight, but really … ‘” Just how did she drop that “little bit of weight”? Well, for starters, she cut out all carbs and wheat, drank a ton of “green juice,” and exercised three hours a day. Poor thing! All that work and still so … “fat.” Life’s really unfair sometimes! At any rate, it’s too bad all that talk about the economy affecting beauty standards hasn’t had much impact on the fashion industry yet. If we’re going to live in a recession, we should at least have the benefit of big hips being in vogue. [NYPost] Keep reading »
MSNBC’s resident sexpert, Brian Alexander, who writes the site’s “Sexploration” column, sits down for a chat with the lady execs of the adult movie industry and discovers that when it comes to the business of porn, men and women see things differently. “‘There is still this perception that [the porn industry] is all run by men, and not very nice men,’” says Joy King, an adult movie studio exec at Wicked Pictures, one of the industry’s biggest production companies. Other women executives working in the sex trade include Digital Playground’s Samantha Lewis, California Exotic Novelties’ Susan Colvin, and Femme’s Candida Royalle. “Surprisingly,” Alexander reports, “many women who work in the business say they don’t like porn.” So who’s to blame for porn’s low quality? These women say it’s men, of course! “[W]hile more women are calling the shots, they have to respond to a market of primarily male consumers, many of whom find plots simply a waste of time.” Hence, all that fast-forwarding. The women of XXX don’t get much support from anti-porn feminists either, who posit the sex industry exploits women. Adult star Nina Hartley has been called “brainwashed.” What do you think? Is porn just one more business — or the business of exploiting women? Keep reading »
My ex and I shared the same iTunes library and while in some ways it has served me well — so much Led Zeppelin! — it has also caused much, much embarrassment. You know how you can set your IM status message to show what song you’re listening to? Well, it is really no fun when someone out of the blue pings me and says, in a patronizing tone, “Why on earth are you listening to Shinedown?!” That’s why I’m taking the next 29 days to reorganize my iTunes, deleting the music I absolutely DO NOT want representing my taste on IM, creating playlists, and downloading new songs that I can’t wait to listen to on the way to work. I suggest you do the same and while you’re at it, add a bunch of rock star approved tracks by checking out our Get Your Rocks Off playlists from bands like Girl Talk and The Postelles, and singers like Rhett Miller and Craig David.
See all the ways to make the most of the last 31 days of 2008 here. Keep reading »

Now that his ex-wife Britney Spears has opened up about the past few tumultuous years, Kevin Federline is sharing his side of the story exclusively to People. Federline’s definitely had some coaching from his publicist, but he seems genuinely concerned about Britney — because she’s the mother of his children. Highlights after the jump. Keep reading »
