Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
As the holidays approach, we all start thinking about that favorite moment spent with friends and family, the meal you’re most looking forward to eating, the gifts you are most looking forward to giving (and let’s be honest, receiving), and the traditions that come along with all of it. This year, we want to be a part of your favorite family moment and would love a sneak peek via Flickr or YouTube. Show us how you celebrate the holidays with your family and friends — whether it’s a video of all the cooks in the kitchen, opening holiday gifts, or playing in the snow. And you could win a $1,000 gift giving shopping spree on Nautica.com for your efforts.
“Everybody said, ‘Oh my God, Kanye, I love you so much. I hated you until you said that. But now I see you’re speaking for me. I always thought you were an a**hole but now you said something that represents me.’ But the whole time, whole time I’m thinking in my mind I was thinking that’s not exactly what I wanted to say, I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to say, I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to word it, but I wrote it, I rode it, just as Taylor never came to my defense in any interview, and rode the waves and rode it and rode it, that’s the way I rode the waves of the Bush comment.”
—Kanye West goes on a rant last night while on stage, performing the songs from his new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in New York City. First, he explains that he was a little tough on George W. Bush when he said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” And then, he slams Taylor Swift. It’s time to let both these incidents go, dude. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
Hollywood is remaking “The Great Gatsby” and Carey Mulligan is set to play Daisy Buchanan, the attractive and shallow young woman who is the object of Jay Gatsby’s obsession. We’re truly excited for the 2012 version of “The Great Gatsby” because of its all-star cast, which includes Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role, and the 1920s-style fashions the film will bring back. But since we like to be ahead of the trends, here’s how you can get Daisy’s style right now. Keep reading »
As you may have already heard, today is “Opt Out Day,” in which people intend to protest the TSA naked x-ray machines by refusing to go through them and instead get a pat down. Some have even called for more drastic measures—Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic has come up with the brilliant idea for men to wear kilts, commando-style, through security. At the same time, the Scottish Tartans Authority has issued a warning about hygiene and wearing kilts without underwear. While it’s actually the tradition to go underpants-less with a kilt, the association makes the following plea: “We are saying, please use common sense and decency, as it can be unhygienic and it can be offensive. If you are out and about in a kilt, then remember to show some decorum. If you are hiring a kilt, then wear underwear because some of them are left in a horrible state.” (Eww!) There was no word on whether the well-timed statement was in response to Opt Out Day … or if they’re just having a bit of a cleanliness problem in Scotland at the moment.

Willow Smith has received a huge amount of attention for the look she wore to the American Music Awards. She even landed on our worst dressed list. Many of the negative comments focused on the yellow sleeve thing she wore so proudly. Now we wonder what her reaction would be to the fact that her accessory is a knockoff of a piece by Mother of London. And the designer of Mother of London, Mildred Von Hildegard, is pissed. “I’m disappointed and saddened that this will negatively impact my business. My original design is now recognized in the mass media as someone else’s work, and it’s very hurtful on both a personal and professional levels,” Von Hildegard said to the site Haute Macabre. Stylist Mariel Haenn, who has styled Willow in the past, has even taken to Twitter to defend her name, saying she didn’t style Willow for the AMAs. This is a sad day in fashion, both for Von Hildegard and Haenn, but also for Willow, whose appearance at the AMAs was tarnished not only by that heinous outfit, but also because she’s a knockoff wearer at the age of 9.
