Janice Dickinson Says She Was Raped By Bill Cosby

Janice Dickinson Says She Was Raped By Bill Cosby

Former supermodel Janice Dickinson has come forward as yet another alleged victim of comedian Bill Cosby. Dickinson told “Entertainment Tonight” that she was in rehab in 1982 when Cosby reached out to her and offered to fly her to Lake Tahoe. (The two had initially met to discuss a possible role on “The Cosby Show.”) Dickinson says that after the two had dinner, Cosby gave her a glass of wine and what she thought was a pain pill for her period cramps. Her description of what she next recalls is detailed and sickening:

“The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man. … Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”

Katherine Heigl Would Like Shonda Rhimes’ Approval Back Now, Please

  • Katherine Heigl told Mario Lopez that she’s sorry that her former “Grey’s Anatomy” boss Shonda Rhimes “is left with such a crappy impression of me” and that she watches Rhimes’ other show, “Scandal,” every week. She also said that her reputation for being difficult on set “took some stomaching and having to just go, ‘Okay there’s nothing I can do about this except to sort of prove it wrong,’ you know, and the only way for me to prove it wrong is for people to have a work experience with me that doesn’t speak to that at all.” Go, girl. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt (I think). [Jezebel]

You Like Ugly Guys More When You're On The Pill

Uh oh. A new study from Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (sounds fancy), recently discovered that women who start or stop taking birth control while they’re in a relationship experience a decrease in sexual satisfaction… especially if their boyfriends or husbands are uggos. Looks like meeting the love of your life while taking birth control isn’t as convenient as you thought it would be. Read more on College Candy…

I Want To Go To There: Van Gogh-Inspired Bike Path Lights Up Dutch Town

Bike Path

Artist Daan Roosegaarde paid the ultimate tribute to Vincent Van Gogh by installing a glowing bike path inspired by his “Starry Night” painting. The path sits in the Dutch town of Eindhoven, near Van Gogh’s former home. The area’s scenery served as inspiration for many Van Gogh’s works, and in turn, Roosegaarde’s creation will inspire its current residents. The path runs on solar-powered LED lights and was designed to appeal energy conservancy enthusiasts, art fans, and any citizens would simply benefit from a beautiful destination in their hometown. The path opened on Wednesday and stretches on for about half a mile. The lights within the path charge during the day and gather enough energy to glow for eight hours through the evening.

So, film, video games, music videos, TV shows, and books, but also pop cultural movements; how they fit into and reflect the culture in which they’re made, and what ideas they’re presenting, not just through the messages they explicitly state, but through imagery, editing, theme, and context, as well. In other words, I’ve found a new favorite vlog. Keep reading »
