Today’s Lady News: California Voters Polled On Female Politicians’ Hair

  • Pollster firm Public Policy Polling actually asked registered California voters whose hair they prefer more, Senator Barbara Boxer or her challenger, Carly Fiorina. Ugh. [Gawker]
  • Riot police in Cambodia beat female sweatshop workers when 3,000 of them went on strike yesterday. At least nine women were injured in the melee. The women work at a factory that creates garments for Gap, Benetton, Adidas, and Puma and claim they are paid less than $2 a day. [Daily Mail UK]
  • Lizz Winstead, co-creator of “The Daily Show,” laid the smackdown on feminist bloggers who have criticized the lack of women on-air at the show. “I get really frustrated when people claim that ‘The Daily Show’ is sexist when I’ve worked with Jon Stewart on four separate projects and he is the least sexist person ever,” Winstead said, “They’re not trying to not hire women, they’re trying to hire the best possible people for the show. You can call it a boy’s club, it’s not. It’s a nerd club.” [Bloggasm]

Russell Brand Is Very Proud Of His Beach Body

This is the man who will be marrying Katy Perry, filming the remake of “Arthur” in New York City. I didn’t expect him to have such a toned physique, did you? That said, I prefer him less impeccably groomed. I like my trouble-making, potty-mouthed Brits a little dirty. [7/28/10] Keep reading »

Get Ready For The New “September Issue”

Vogue isn’t the only magazine that’s ready to let the video cameras into their offices it seems. Apparently W had a bit of “September Issue” jealousy and, in turn, decided to create their own documentary marking the first September issue under brand-new editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi. Given the circumstances — monumental issue, major re-design, and new staff — the film is sure to be full of drama. We’re hoping for the juicy details about what it’s really like to work under a new regime while producing the largest issue of the year. Even though the official focus of the documentary is the creation of the latest issue, if this film is anything like “The September Issue,” we’re counting on the fact that a major personality will steal the show, just like Grace Coddington. So far the release date is set for late October, just in time to peruse the glossy and then prep for all the behind-the-scenes secrets. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Dolce & Gabbana To Outfit Chelsea Soccer Team

Soccer players are so in right now. Though the World Cup definitely deserves the brunt of the credit for that, we have no idea why it took so long for people to obsess over what is essentially an army of incredibly fit, hot men. Now that the world has arrived at the fairly obvious conclusion that ogling soccer bods just makes sense, the Chelsea soccer team has signed a deal to be outfitted exclusively by Dolce & Gabbana when strolling sexily for public appearances. As though we needed yet another reason to stare … [The Independent] Keep reading »

“Hot Toddy” And Other Mixed Drinks That Have Inspired Songs


We’ve come a long way from “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” when it comes to name-dropping alcohol in music. Today’s artists get paid big bucks to sing about certain vodkas, or have a name-brand bottle of booze appear in their videos. But then some alcohol-inspired songs seem to be purely organic, created purely as a true tribute to a particular beverage. One of the most recent examples—a
Jay-Z and Usher‘s collaboration, “Hot Toddy.” What is a Hot Toddy, the uninitiated may ask? It is a mix of whiskey, boiling water, honey, lemon, and cinnamon. Sound like the drink needs all the publicity it can get.

Check out other mixed drinks that artists have honored with ballads. Keep reading »
