Tesco Markets Padded Bras To The Tween Set

Padded bras for pre-teens. You heard right. Because your little sister desperately needs something to go along with her thong — the perfect outfit for when she’s up late at night playing Miss Bimbo. [Telegraph U.K.] Keep reading »

Somewhere Out There, A Male Mouse Is Singing His Heart Out

If you think the mouse squeals you can hear between your walls are gross, just wait until you listen to the ones that are normally (and luckily) inaudible to the human ear. Sure, over hearing a neighbor or roommate having sex can be quite traumatizing, but male mice screech higher than Michael Jackson when they’re getting tail. Researchers at the University of Toronto, have discovered that boy mice actually have feelings and real emotions — it’s in their genes. For example, when a male mouse encounters a female or even simply smells one, it gets so excited that it will chirp in a special way based on its individual genetic make up. Basically, male mice sing sweet ballads to show their softer side — remember Fieval from American Tail? [New Scientist] Keep reading »

Happy Black Day!

Think we have too many lame romantic holidays in the U.S.? Don’t visit South Korea. There, marketers have cooked up even more days to make single people feel bad about themselves. White Day, on March 14, is when men give gifts to women. (Local custom dictates that women give men presents on Valentine’s Day.) Black Day is today, and it’s when singles wear dark colors and commiserate over meals of black food, the favorite being Chinese-style noodles topped with a thick black bean paste sauce. Yum. If Valentine’s Day, White Day, and Black Day aren’t enough for you, there’s Green Day in August, but it hasn’t gotten much traction. Celebrating Green Day involves drinking cheap liquor from green bottles and walking in the woods. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Crave: Celia Birtwell Brings Her Boho Prints To Express

We love Target for coming up with the genius idea of having cool designers do guest collections and we love the fact that every other store in the world is copying the idea. Celia Birtwell, who made really fun bohemian printed dresses and shirts in the ’70s, has done a line for Express and it’s perfect for Spring/Summer. We heart these two dresses, in Mystic Daisy print and Mini Posh Dot print. Not to mention basically everything else in the collection. More photos, after the jump!

Women Dominate Spain’s New Cabinet

Spain has a female Defense Minister for the first time EVER. Not only is Carme Chacon 37 years old and totally cute, but she’s also pregnant (gasp!). Major props to Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero for selecting her and the eight other women who now fill the 17-person cabinet. And shame on the conservative commentator who referred to them as “ZP’s battalion of inexperienced seamstresses.” [The Independent, U.K.] Keep reading »

Just ‘Cause She Dances Go-Go…

I’ve always been a little curious about what being a stripper, I mean dancer, involves, exactly. If you’re at all interested, you should read Ruth Fowler’s account of how she came to New York from the U.K. and began stripping because she wasn’t making enough to survive as a waitress (plus she was in the States illegally and didn’t have many options, job-wise). She wore clear plastic heals, learned that dancers love their dogs, and even dated a guy she met at work — it didn’t work out, though. He didn’t want her to take off her intense stage makeup.

Ladies Love Hot Lesbians

In the past I have said that if I was going to hook up with a woman, she would need to be busty and very womanly because, otherwise, what would be the point? But over the years, the true girl crushes I’ve had (not the “oh my god, isn’t she cool”-girl crushes we write about on The Frisky) have been a lot more masculine than I thought they would be. Like Ellen DeGeneres, who I find very attractive. And the chick who briefly hosted “Queer Eye For The Straight Girl” — I think her name was Honey Labrador or something. Anyway, apparently, I am not alone. The New York Times had an interested article this weekend about how women — from city gals to suburban moms — are totally obsessed with the host of Bravo’s Work Out, Jackie Warner, who’s gay. This makes me happy, mostly because the most mainstream acceptance of lesbianism has been when it’s pornified in Girls Gone Wild videos or at your local bar, where girls make out with each other for the viewing pleasure of men.

It Can Even Happen To Cameron Diaz

Back in the day, at a dance party in my middle school’s gym, a ray of light shined into my dark pubescent heart: the class clown asked me to slow dance. It was an unexpected surprise, as I usually went to school socials just so I could eat lots of M&M’s and Doritos. But a mouthful of Brian was even better than junk food. We goofed around, got in trouble with the teachers for dancing too close, and made out in an empty girls’ bathroom. It was one H-O-T Friday night! When Monday rolled around, I had my friend French braid my hair in PE, I put on some lip gloss, and then I bravely went up to my new boyfriend during lunch. But he pretended he didn’t know why I was even talking to him and made fun of me in front of his friends. WTF?! I was crushed. It’s easy to blame that kind of manipulation on adolescent immaturity. But now we have quite a woman to console — Cameron Diaz. Keep reading »

Breaking News! Ashlee Simpson Pregnant With Her First Emo-Punk Child!

According to Us Weekly, that is. Isn’t it amazing how so many people in Hollywood can’t seem to figure out how to put on a condom properly? Papa Joe must be freaking out.

UPDATE: Pete Wentz is denying that his fiancee is knocked up, saying, “There is a witch hunt for people to be pregnant whenever they get engaged in Hollywood. This is all news to me. I can’t wait for the story about how I’m really in a gay relationship and this is all just a cover. … I mean really, this is crazy. … I mean were engaged, that’s true, and happy about it.” [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »
