Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
The Empire State Building, which often changes the colors of its lights at night to reflect holidays, is going to be awash in lavender, pink, and white this weekend in honor of Mariah Carey. If this is true, we are kind of going to hurl. We like Mimi A LOT, but this is ridic. The dang Pope didn’t get any special colors! [Towleroad] Keep reading »
“This is a film we could not have made before, obviously, because the biggest difference that our generation has from our mothers’ is that we just don’t have babies yet. Our mothers by this time in life had one, two, three children, or they were never going to have children. Our mothers look at us now — I’m 36 — and the choices and experiences we have are way different than what they had from 25 to 35…and then we do like really funny fart jokes.” — Amy Poehler on her new film Baby Mama Keep reading »
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has called for a conference to discuss the “racy” photos leaked on the internet of Miley Cyrus flashing a lil’ green bra at a camera when she was 14. “Look, we have so few role models, particularly for little girls in this country,” he said. “She is the main one. I hate to see this. Parents all over the country like this girl because she is clean-cut.” The fact is, we listen to Miley Cyrus (so not embarassed about that) and do think her music has a little sexiness that maybe is odd for 14, but after Britney Spears and her “Hit Me Baby” mini skirts and crop tops, she seems pretty tame. Also, what is the point of a conference headed by Bill O’Reilly? No one would get a word in edgewise on this oh so important topic. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
Anyone who has ever picked up a Playgirl has probably learned their lesson the hard way (no pun intended). The mag is famous for publishing naked pictures they get sent by amateurs in the â€œReal Menâ€ section. While porn superstar Ron Jeremy got his start as one of these snapshots, youâ€™re more likely to see some scary shaved grandpa-parts and silly sex costumes. We always make a point to flip past that page, but daytime talk show host Maury Povich wasnâ€™t afraid to go there. Take a look at these clips from his infamous Playgirl episode special, which features more muscle than a race car, a mother who sent Playgirl pictures of her son, a jealous host, a mullet, and an appreciative granny. It’s classic! [About halfway through this video we think we spotted a flash of buttock, so it's potentially NSFW. That said, this did air at the same time as Sesame Street!]
Some men in the Congo fear that their penises have been stolen or shrunk by sorcerers. (Guys, you were born that way! You can’t blame your small size on a sorcerer!) Reports of penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, where witchcraft remains widespread, and things can get pretty violent as accusations fly. A decade ago, 12 suspected penis snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs, so these days, police arrest suspected victims and sorcerers to prevent violence. “I’m tempted to say it’s one huge joke,” said Jean-Dieudonne Oleko, Kinshasa’s police chief. “But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it’s become tiny or that they’ve become impotent. To that I tell them, ‘How do you know if you haven’t gone home and tried it’.” [Reuters] Keep reading »
1. Chlamydia is really common, but I donâ€™t think anyone I know has told me theyâ€™ve had it. But they must have told someone, because Chlamydia is the most frequently reported STD in the US. In 2006, there were over a million reported cases. Eww. Teenagers and young women are more susceptible to infection because the cervix has not fully matured and gets infections more easily. Careful out there, Hannah Montana! Keep reading »
Sex sells. But does doggy-style make shoppers want cheap, trendy tops? Our gal pal Heather is way into Forever 21, but she did a double take when she saw their mannequins doubled over and sent us a picture. Usually when we pose like this, the lights are out and weâ€™ve had a couple drinks, but apparently thatâ€™s just the look the store in New York Cityâ€™s Union Square is going for. Guess working it from behind is always in style!

High-waisted pants are tricky. They have the potential to make even the Skinniest Minnie look dumpy. But this pair from eco-friendly designer Anna Cohen (her company runs on sustainable practices, from raw materials to end-of-life use) has the ever-so-elongating vertical stripes and an extra long leg that fit down over a pair of high-heels.
