We are all too familiar with the abusive nature of the sun. It’s like that snake cane Jafar carries around with him that makes you do whatever he wants. It’s alluring and inviting one minute, and just when you think you’re safe and call it quits, you can’t bend your knees without cringing in pain for a week. The first step is admitting you have a problem. Think of this, along with a healthy does of sunscreen, as your support group.

Pakistan, Nigeria, and Kenya are some of the world’s most vehemently anti-gay countries. Coincidentally enough, these countries also have some of the highest Google searches for gay porn. Searches like “shemale sex,” “teen anal sex,” “man fucking man,” “gay sex pics,” and “anal sex pics” have the some of the highest volumes of searches in these countries. Pakistan and Nigeria rank in the top five on Google searches for “gay sex pics”and “anal sex pics” while Kenya ranks number one for these searches. It makes a lot of sense that people in these countries would turn to the Internet for their needs. Since homosexuality is so widely opposed, there are very few openly gay people. That does not, however, mean that there are any fewer gay people. Unable to foster healthy and public homosexual relationships, gay people predominantly restrict their sexuality to Google searches. Additionally, since homosexuality is neither commonplace nor understood, there is also a fascination with it. People tend to be curious about what is forbidden, and apparently gay sex is no exception. [Huffington Post; Google Trends; Pew Global] [Photo of URL search via Shutterstock]
Ovaries. Explode. Okay, maybe not yours, but MINE. So many wonderful things colliding. My second tier dream celebrity boyfriend. His adorable new baby daughter. My favorite hideous hippie beach coverup. I don’t even know what to say. [Instagram]
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Cancel your pity party plans, because now’s the time to rule your world just the way you want. Just don’t get shortsighted, as there are a lot of karmic miracles waiting. If you hesitate too long, these opportunities will past you by and all you’ll be left with will be “what ifs” that will weigh heavily on your mind forever. Not advised! Proceed ahead!
Leo (July 23-August 22): Dedication to your honey is going to pour out of you now, as you’ll need to play nursemaid to some capacity. This could be literally taking care of them or nurturing them in a metaphorical way. Either way, expect your selflessness to go into maximum overdrive, as you just won’t be able to help yourself when you see how vulnerable they can be and how powerful you are. Keep reading »
About a year after I first started working at The Frisky, Jessica was going through a bunch of old papers and somehow unearthed my résumé. I can’t believe they actually let me work here, because my (very brief) summary of education and accomplishments did not look all that unlike this hand-written document by a 20-year-old Jean-Michel Basquiat. Same references and everything, it’s crazy. It is not likely that my inchoate job application will one day sell for $50,000, but hey, you never know. [Complex]
As far as designers go, Karl Lagerfeld is notoriously loyal to his muses — for instance, while most brands will hold on to a spokesmodel for only a few years before ushering in the new guard, Karl has retained Keira Knightley as the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance since 2006. Model monogamy is kind of his thing … so, with that in mind, expect to see Lagerfeld’s feline daughter/wife Choupette landing more magazine editorials than Kate Moss for the foreseeable future. (Okay, maybe not Moss, but you catch my drift.) She made her glossy debut last year in Harper’s Bazaar, followed shortly thereafter by a spread in V alongside Laetitia Casta. The stunning Siamese (we think) even landed the cover of Grazia Daily‘s September fashion issue. Now, the next installment in Choupette’s growing oeuvre is a starring role on the July 2013 cover of Vogue Germany, photographed by Karl himself. She and Linda Evangelista are looking preeeetty cozy — we wonder if there might be some surrogate cat-mom arrangements to be made? If only Linda were so lucky! [Huffington Post]
What it is: The almighty bandanna.
When we wore it: Strong throughout the ’90s.
Why we hate it: The bandana made us all go through somewhat of an identity crisis. I mean, were we badass rappers like Tupac, or dirty rock stars like Axl Rose? And what were we to think when peppy pop stars like Christina started sporting them? Reveal your true identity, bandanna.
Why we love it: Because we COULD be Tupac or Axl Rose or Christina just by the fold of a square piece of fabric. And they were super cheap, and could even function as a shirt when we had no tits (thank you, youth).
Would we wear it now? Who says I’m not wearing one as I write this…
If there’s one good thing that’s come out of the hipster movement, it’s the crop top. They have this effortlessly cool vibe about them, like somehow when we slip one on we’ll magically transform into Alexa Chung or Sienna Miller. But I’ll be the first to admit, crop tops are a tricky bunch. Unless you have abs of steel, don’t get those microscopic ones and pair them with low cut shorts. For everyone else, crops look great with high-waisted pants, shorts and skirts. And as long as there’s no midriff peeking out, you can virtually wear them to any and all occasions. So here’s to you hipsters, thanks for giving back.
This week Tori Spelling tweeted: “O-M-G … My husband @Deanracer just surprised me w/ hottest ‘Tori’ tattoo in an unbelievably intimate spot I’m blown away!”
Of course, she didn’t show us a picture of this intimate tattoo, but based on the other bad “Tori” tattoo on his elbow, we can only guess that Dean got her beloved pet chicken Coco inked on his taint. I’m sure we’ll see a Twitpic or Vine video of it soon enough … whether we want to or not.
Here are some more celebs who got intimate tattoos. [US Weekly]
Amy Adams was spotted wearing this ensemble leaving the Dorchester Hotel in Manhattan on Friday. (Am I the only one who prefers to think that the proper way to pronounce “Dorchester” is “Dorchestah”? Yes? Okay.) I love the way leaving a few buttons undone ratchets up the hotness of this look by a factor of a zillion. But while Adams’ outfit looks relatively simple it’s also pretty expensive. Like, we know for a fact that she’s wearing $450 Alexander McQueen flats. Who has that kind of money to spend on grey ballet flats? (Amy Adams.) Here’s how to get the look for a lot less.
