Quote Of The Day: Lily Allen On Men And Sex

“…men generally are more selfish in bed than women because they know how it’s going to end. We don’t!” — Lily Allen

I Wanna Dress Like: “Carmen Jones”

Carmen Jones” is one of my favorite films because the title character, played by Dorothy Dandridge, has impeccable style and great one-liners. Carmen wore this saucy and sexy outfit for much of the first half of the movie as she rebelled against conventional norms. Her look was rather simple, just a pencil skirt and off-the-shoulder blouse, but her accessories make it much more interesting. Now all you need is the right attitude and walk. Keep reading »

Would America Fall In Love With A Single Mom As “The Bachelorette”?

“The Bachelor” is about to wrap up its 13th season (or the 16th, if you include the four seasons of “The Bachelorette”), but hasn’t really been the subject of water cooler talk for years. It’s been enough of a success for ABC that they’ve kept it around this long, but studio execs finally struck oil again this season, by electing to feature Jason Mesnick as the man 25 women wanted to meet and marry. The show has seen a ratings surge of 37% above its last season (featuring my personal fave, The British Bach), and the network is already getting ready to do a casting call for a 14th season, after the fifth “Bachelorette” airs this summer. But can they recreate the success of this season? Only if they find another sexy single dad! It’s no coincidence that “The Bachelor” is suddenly the show to watch when the man in question is raising an adorable son on his own. After all, women LOVE a hot dad, especially a dad who has to shoulder the burden of parenthood all by his lonesome. All 25 women were eager to become insta-Step Mommies to Mesnick’s son — though most of them seem ill-equipped for the job. So what would happen if ABC tried the same approach with “The Bachelorette,” and found a (hot, always) single mom as its catch? Would 25 would be suitors come running, ready to be Insta-Step Daddies? Somehow I doubt it. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Models, They’re Just Like Us!

Ways in which models are like normal people, as illustrated in this photo: 1) They drink regular Coke. 2) They have iPhones. That is all.

Justin Timberlake, The Most Stylish Man Alive? Not Always!

Justin Timberlake has been anointed the Most Stylish Man In America by GQ magazine. While I think JT has mad fly (yes, I did just type “mad fly”) style now, it was not so long ago that he was a hot mess. Keep clicking for some of Justin’s most, uh, creative and heinous looks.

“Twilight” Sequel News: Madonna Gets In On The Action

The “Twilight” sequel is such a hot project that everyone wants to dance on its set, including Madonna. Ryan Seacrest told “E! News” that Madonna will be involved in the “Twilight” sequel, “New Moon,” in some capacity. Seacrest said Madonna will most likely appear in the film and provide music for the soundtrack. If the “New Moon” soundtrack is anything like the “Twilight” soundtrack, which featured songs by Paramore and Linkin Park, Madonna’s style of music will stick out like a sore thumb. Also, I can’t think of any role in “New Moon” that is appropriate for Madge. She could play one of the Volterra vampires, but then again, they’re supposed to be young, and we all know Madonna has seen more youthful, softer days. Maybe she’ll be a tourist ravaged by the Volterras in Italy? We could possibly be entertained by that scene. Anyway, I think this is a feeble attempt for Madonna to become relevant to a generation that knows little, and couldn’t care less, about the Material Girl. [OhNoTheyDidnt.com] Keep reading »

Celebrate Black History Month With…Ham Hocks?

So we’ve all heard of celebrating the holidays with traditional food items. Thanksgiving has turkey. Christmas has ham. St. Patty’s Day has beer and, uh, corned beef. Black History Month apparently has collard greens and catfish. Rainbow Grocery Store decided to print the dumbest ad featuring “black people food” in what they consider to be an attempt at celebrating Black History Month. The selection of food is supposed to be what the typical black person eats. So pork hocks and frying chickens are what black people eat on a regular basis? Because I know it’s not in my diet. All they are missing in the ad is grits and chitlins. There’s nothing wrong with eating those food items, but why are such items like seafood and ham considered to be black people food? Do white people have white food? A company rep explains, “This ad was intended to celebrate Black History Month and African American culture by sharing with our customers some of the contributions African Americans have made to the grocery industry.” Mm, ‘kay. Click past the jump to see the full ad! [Gawker]

Why An Attractive Voice Means A Good Mate: The Science Of Sex

We often think of a deep baritone voice as a sexy one, but it seems too cliché to think that a romantically-inclined crooner like Barry White would actually look the part. Yet, although most people’s voices don’t seem to strike a chord one way or the other, research has shown that a person’s voice can influence whether others find him alluring or unattractive. But once you connect the face with the voice, does the sound actually correspond to a knockout — or a letdown? Keep reading »

Shia LaBeouf Turns Music Video Director

Shia LaBeouf. He’s not just some kid caught up in a world war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. He’s also a sensitive music video director who likes to shoot on Super 8. Rumspringa, a Los Angeles-based group that cites influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Grandmaster Flash, is one of the 22-year-old actor’s favorite bands. Last summer, he was at one of their gigs the night he ended up getting into the car accident that wrecked his hand, temporarily endangered his role in the “Transformers” sequel, and resulted in his getting his driver’s license suspended for a year. Perhaps to keep himself out of getting into any more trouble, LaBeouf directed Rumspringa’s latest video: “Mind’s Awake.” Interestingly, the song appeared in another video late last year that focused on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Star Couplings: A Heroic Breakup

  • Milo Ventimiglia broke up with his “Heroes” co-star Hayden Panettiere. Apparently, she is too much of a Hollywood party-girl for him. [DListed]
  • Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson really enjoy public arguments. The two had a squabble on the streets of Manhattan early Saturday morning. No word on what the argument was about, but it sounds like Ronson was accusing Lohan of roaming eyes…again. [Perez Hilton]
  • According to a Barbados official, the country will prosecute Chris Brown if the U.S. officials don’t. This is the most ridiculous news I’ve heard today and it’s not even noon. [Media Takeout]
