Yes, Folks, These Are Scary Times

It’s fun to look at men’s fashion show photos, if only to look at the models and their taut bodies. But the guys walking at Gareth Pugh, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen didn’t look hot. No, they looked scary. In fact, they looked a lot like zombies. Could this be a pop culture trend in the making? Are zombies going to become the new vampires? One pop culture seems to think so. Or maybe the models are just depressed about the grim state of the economy. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

An Open Letter To Jessica Simpson

Dear Jessica,

The mistake you made wasn’t so much in gaining weight, it was in making such a big to-do of yourself when you were skinny. And those high-waisted jeans weren’t doing you any favors either. But the thing is, plenty of women in Hollywood are your size or bigger and no one’s giving them a hard time about it. Just look at Salma Hayek, Scarlett Johansson, or Christina Hendricks — they’ve all got curves like you and they’re hot! No one’s drawing them as 500 lb. caricatures, so what gives?

Big girl bombshell Beth Ditto has already made us swoon with her songs and her sass, but now she’s going to conquer a business that has typically seemed a little small minded for a lady like her- fashion. Known for her outtasight onstage getups made of metallic spandex and her tasty Tracey Turnblad-esque print dresses, everyone has been taking notice of the lead singer of The Gossips’ bold personal style and sense of self- especially Lisa Marie Peacock.

Jennifer Aniston Takes Her Clothes Off, Just Not For Playboy

In the January issue of GQ, Jennifer posed on the cover wearing nothing but a man’s tie to match her birthday suit. After seeing her cover, Playboy’s head, Hugh Hefner, said , “Is it just me or is Jennifer Aniston getting hotter?…Never seen her in this light before.” Whoa, easy there sparky! But according to a Playboy spokesperson, Hef just had to ask if he could have her for his mag and offered her $4 million plus a bonus for sales that could earn her up to $10 million if she agreed to pose nude! Wow, I can barely get a dude to buy me a drink before we get nekkid. However, All American Aniston doesn’t literally want to be a “Girl Next Door.” So, she turned Hef down, even though she told GQ “Yes” for a heck of a lot less dough. Alas, the cougar has decided to keep her clothes on, this time. But maybe she should reconsider, after all, that’s a whole lot of neck ties, Jen. [Celebrity Smack] Keep reading »

Would You Pay For Love In A Recession?

Banks are foreclosing on houses. Jobs are being outsourced. Popular retail stores are shutting down. Magazines like Domino are folding. Despite the economy being pretty much in the crapper, romance is on the rise. Popular online dating sites like Match.com and eHarmony are seeing a spike in the number of people signing up looking for love; Match.com saw its biggest membership growth in seven years in November, and eHarmony.com registrations increased 20 percent in 2008. Yes, it seems people are dumping their change jars into Coinstar machines and flocking to online dating sites.
