Lady Gaga: The Barbie Slayer

At a show in Ireland over the weekend, Lady Gaga killed a Barbie. She did it Ozzy Osbourne-style, by sticking it in her mouth and beheading it … and then rubbing it on her leather, studded crotch. Man, we wish we were there to see the execution ourselves! When my Barbies got destroyed as a kid, it was usually through some brother-related microwave hijinx. But Gaga always takes things to the next level!

Old-School Wednesdays: Sonic Youth Give “100 Percent”

Before directing “Where the Wild Things Are,” Spike Jonze was just a skater punk who hung out with the effortlessly cool noise band Sonic Youth.

The song is about the band’s friend, Joe Cole, who was shot and killed in front of his house in 1991. [YouTube] Keep reading »

“Hellcats” Cram Session: Who Are Cheerleading Coaches?

Bust out your pom-poms, ‘cause tonight is “Hellcats” night! Since The Frisky’s own Kate Torgovnick happens to be an expert on college cheerleading—after all, the show is based on her book CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders—every Wednesday we have her sound off on how the show stacks up to reality.

Tonight’s episode of “Hellcats” will involve lots of neon and crimped hair. The squad throws a rocking ’80s costume party to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the squad. During the shindig, Hellcats coach Vanessa sings two classic ’80s tunes—she does an awesome rendition of “We Got the Beat” with Marti and Savannah, before giving us a solo of “Tempted By the Fruit of Another.” Interesting, since while she loves her boyfriend, the (hot!) athletic department doctor, she used to have a thing with football coach Red Raymond.

As the Hellcats mythology goes, Vanessa was a Hellcats squad member 10 years ago. So how realistic is this? Keep reading »

The Ladies Of Election Day: Who Won And Lost

election main jpg
Depending on your political leanings, Election Day yesterday was either a smashing success or reason to stick your head in the oven. I’m particularly interested in women who run for office (although obviously the votes of men in Congress impact women’s lives as well), so I have been watching their races closely. I’ve rounded up 10 races with female candidates, both victories and defeats, including Christine O’Donnell, Kirsten Gillibrand, Meg Whitman, Sharron Angle, and Carly Fiornia. If you’ve seen other interesting articles about the female candidates I left out, please share them with all of us in the comments. And stay tuned tomorrow for a comprehensive roundup of sexist incidents — against both women and men — during the 2010 election. Please email me any incidents you’d like me to include at {encode=”jessica@thefrisky.com” title=”jessica@thefrisky.com”}.
