Radio Station Goes All “Glee” All the Time

British “Gleeks” are celebrating the creation of an all-”Glee” radio station. Oxford, U.K.’s “New Directions”-themed station only plays songs recorded by the cast of the hit Fox show. That means its musical roster is limited to around 180 tracks — of everything from Journey’s anthemic “Don’t Stop Believing” to Lady Gaga’s poppy “Alejandro.”

While that doesn’t seem like a lot of songs, keep in mind that the average radio station keeps around 150 songs in rotation at any given moment. Station managers are hoping to attract 30-something women with the “Glee”-ful programming. Now if only they could somehow send us Finn through the radio waves … [NY Post] Keep reading »

Will We Ever Get To Read Nadya Suleman’s Autobiography?

I was starting to think that maybe Nadya Suleman was out of our lives forever. I mean, after all, the lady has a lot of diapers to change. But evidently, she is doing okay because she’s had time to pen an autobiography. The problem? No publisher wants to print it. A source says, “[Nadya] is holding out because she is not being offered a lucrative deal, and she feels like her personal story is worth a lot more than anyone is even interested in paying.” The book was supposed to be ghostwritten by Wendy Leigh, but apparently she dropped out of the project and Nadya wrote this one herself. Which means it should be … good? Or at least covered in baby spittle. And, no, apparently she does not reveal the name of her sperm donor in this one. [Radar] Keep reading »

Democratic Women Will Raise Your Taxes AND They’re Ugly

This is pretty terrible: The Republican Party’s website for a state Senate race in Minnesota published this YouTube video of “hot” GOP women like Sarah Palin set to the song “She’s A Lady” and then “ugly” liberal women like Hillary Clinton set to “Who Let The Dogs Out?” Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: M.A.C. Makeup Cancels Controversial Juarez Line

  • This is crazy: After our post about a Juarez, Mexico-inspired makeup line created by the designers Rodarte for M.A.C. blew up, the company has canceled the Rodarte line entirely. In a statement on their Facebook page, M.A.C. said:
    Out of respect for the people of Mexico, the women and girls of Juarez and their families, as well as our MAC Mexican staff and colleagues, MAC has made the decision not to ship the MAC Rodarte limited edition makeup collection. This decision will have no impact on MAC’s commitment to donate all of its projected global profits from this collection to local and international groups that work to improve the lives of the women and girls of Juarez. We are currently conducting due diligence to ensure we donate to organizations with a proven record of directly supporting the women and girls of Juarez.”

    We would have just been satisfied with changing the offensively named products — nail polishes called Juarez and Factory — and donating some proceeds to charities. We’re happy the company will still do the donation thing. But their decision for the entire M.A.C. collaboration comes as a complete surprise. What do y’all think? [NYMag.com]
