Virginity Pledges Don’t Work

The Jonas Brothers may lose their virginity sooner than they had planned — and maybe they’ll make some Jonas Bastard Babies while they’re at it. A recent federal study has discovered that teens who pledge virginity until marriage are just as likely to have premarital sex as those who don’t promise to wait until they’ve got a ring on it. They’re also much more likely to screw without condoms and other forms of birth control. “Taking a pledge doesn’t seem to make any difference at all in any sexual behavior,” said study author Janet E. Rosenbaum of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “But it does seem to make a difference in condom use and other forms of birth control that is quite striking.” In fact, the number of students who reported condom use during sex was about 10 percent lower for those who had taken the pledge.

Is Beyonce A Thief?

One of the ballads on Beyonce’s I Am Sasha Fierce is a track called “Smash Into You.” Well according to PerezHilton.com, “The song originally called ‘Smack Into You’ was written for Jon McLaughlins sophomore album Ok Now by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. Though, the song was later scrapped from the album, Jon did perform the song live on his summer/fall tour. Not letting an amazing song go to waste, it was presented to Beyonce and changed to ‘Smash Into You.’ Thats the part Beyonce must have ‘written’ in order to receive that coveted writing credit because the two versions are practically identical lyrically otherwise.” You can listen to the original above, Beyonce’s version after the jump, and decide for yourself….

Kate And Leo Don’t TiVo “Titantic” Either!

I want to read Richard Yates’ “Revolutionary Road” before I see the film starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, but I hope I can get through it quickly, based on this adorable interview with the pair on “The Today Show” last week. I was never a “Titantic” fan — absolute crap script, for starters (this coming from the woman who watched “Must Love Dogs” and “Two Weeks Notice” back to back last night — but these two did have lovely chemistry.

Publication Of Holocaust Memoir, Loved By Oprah, Canceled

Berkley Books, an imprint of large book publisher, Penguin, has canceled the publication of the Oprah-endorsed Holocaust memoir, “Angel at the Fence,” after allegations of its validity were made by Jewish groups, family, and friends. “Angel at the Fence” was supposed to come out in February, and told the love story of Herman and Rosa Rosenblat — in the memoir, Mr. Rosenblat claimed that his life was saved when young Rosa (then Roma Radzicky, also a prisoner at the concentration camp) threw him apples over a fence to prevent him from starving. Rosenblat said they found each other years later, set up on a blind date. “I wanted to bring happiness to people,” Rosenblat said in a statement issued Saturday through his agent, Andrea Hurst. “I brought hope to a lot of people. My motivation was to make good in this world.”

Though there is no doubt Rosenblat was a Holocaust concentration camp survivor, serious doubts exist that he could have met his wife in the ways he describes in the book. Thus, Jewish groups and scholars worry that such inaccuracies would only encourage Holocaust deniers. Keep reading »

Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen Are Engaged — Maybe?

The New England Patriots quarterback proposed to the supermodel on Christmas Eve — apparently he asked while the pair was flying from New Jersey to Boston on a private jet. Her parents were there for the proposal and, obvi, Gisele said yes. I guess congrats are in order, and, duh, they’re going to have some pretty kids, but they totally bore me. I liked him better when he was with Bridget Moynahan. She had some fire. [DListed]

UPDATE: Um, maybe not? Tom Brady’s father is saying he knows nothing about an engagement and that he’s spoken to Tom himself. [People] Keep reading »

First Look At HBO’s “Grey Gardens” Movie

I’m majorly conflicted about the fact that Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange are starring in an upcoming movie based on the documentary “Grey Gardens,” and remain conflicted after watching this first look clip above. Can the two actresses pull off Big and Little Edie Beale, the aunt and first cousin of Jackie Kennedy? Lange, who has certainly proved her acting chops, is less of a concern than Barrymore, in my opinion, not to mention not knowing if the script is any good. The film supposedly goes back years before the documentary and tells the story off how the Beale’s went from being prominent socialites to reclusive hermits living in a rundown estate in Long Island. The film hits HBO in April of 2009. Keep reading »
