Madonna’s Newest Project: Hard Candy Fitness Centers

Madonna‘s arm muscles are still a thing of wonder. So her newest venture sort of almost makes sense. Madonna is opening up a chain of gyms called Hard Candy Fitness Centers, named for her last album, natch. The first gym is opening in Mexico City and branches will also be heading to Russia, Brazil, Argentina, as well as multiple locations in Europe and Asia. What, no US of A? Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Mother Is A Hoarder

The smell of ammonia—a holdover from when the cat was sick—is the first thing I notice, before the dust seeps into my nostrils, making my eyes itch. The door doesn’t fully open, blocked by boxes in the entryway. The piles of craft projects, winter coats, and litter are pushing out from the walls, trying to escape outside. I have to turn sideways to get into the hallway, to the foot-and-a-half kept clear of debris so people can pass to the kitchen or living room. The dining room, with a hanging lamp and large oak table, was long ago lost entirely to the clutter.

There’s too much stuff. It’s disgusting. I hate it here.

But it’s home. Keep reading »

Will The “Choke” Dance Take Off In The U.S.?

A new dance craze called the Choke is sweeping South America. As Clutch magazine points out, the Choke looks an awful lot like the Bump of the ’70s, but it’s more sexually suggestive than simply bumping hips. The dance involves a man dancing behind a willing woman or another man, and pulling her/him towards his crotch or hip to the beat of the music. The Choke is not nearly as sexually offensive and confusing as Daggering, a “dance” that was created in Jamaica a few years ago, nor as skillful, hypnotizing (when done right), or deadly as the Dutty Wine. I found the men doing the Choke together, in the video above, much more interesting than a man and woman. But maybe that’s because two men banging each other’s crotches and behinds is taboo in the heterosexual world? Check out one more video of the Choke after the jump, and let us know if you think this dance will take off in the U.S. [Clutch] Keep reading »

This weekend, Matt Damon and his wife Luciana welcomed another daughter, Stella Zavala Damon, into the world. Damon said, “Our lives are full and wonderful and we’re done having kids… I think that’s about enough to ask of any woman. I don’t want to turn her into Ethel Kennedy.” Luciana also had a daughter from her previous marriage, so it’s five women in the house and only one Matt. Homedude is seriously outnumbered. [CNN]
