I am amazed by the rise of the slogan t-shirt. You know, “Everybody Loves An Italian Girl”, “Barack ‘N’ Roll”, “More Cowbell”, “What Would Jesus Do”…I blame Urban Outfitters. But anyway, the most annoying aspect of this clothing phenomenon is that it’s given people the false impression that it’s okay to wear their stupidity, sexist attitudes, and sexual habits on their chests. After the jump, five t-shirts that are total dealbreakers.

Liv Tyler is going through a breakup and has a new shorter ‘do. Ditto for Anne Hathaway. We always thought that theory was B.S., but guess not. [Mr. Chow restaurant, Beverly Hills, 6/18/08] Keep reading »
All those studies that say sex burns calories thereby making you lose weight may be hooey. A study published this month in Medical Hypotheses suggests that blood levels of the hormone prolactin, which stimulates milk production and fatherly love, rise during sex, especially when there’s an orgasm. In several species, increased levels of prolactin have been linked to weight gain, so if things have been going well in the bedroom lately, it’s quite alright if you’ve been on a couple pounds. That’s called “happy weight.” [NewScientist.com] Keep reading »
Diamonds can be made out of many materials, even your dead dog’s ashes, and now booze-hounds may be able to get bling made from their alcohol of choice: tequila.

Our girl Katy Perry made a guest appearance on soap opera The Young and the Restless last week. On the show, she was photographed for the cover of the new magazine Restless Style, and the cover will be unveiled on the show on June 27. But the magazine sort of exists even though it’s fictional! Like, they really did a photo shoot and there’s an article about her! Anyway, I have been trying to figure out how to wear a really long strand of pearls like what she’s got on (sadly, mine aren’t Chanel), so if you have any style suggestions, please let me know — keep in mind that I’m not a rock star, and the vintage dress with “Like A Virgin” gloves and fishnets probably wouldn’t work on me.
