Why celebrities should never, ever accidentally leave belongings behind: they will surely end up on the internet or up for auction. That’s what’s going on with a pair of Queen Elizabeth‘s underpants—if you can even call them that—that she apparently left on a plane way back in 1968. For some 40 years, they had been in the possession of a Florida man, recently deceased. The old-fashioned panties will be up for auction at the man’s estate sale and are expected to go for as much as $9,000! This apparently happened to Queen Victoria’s underwear, which sold for the same price, reports TMZ.
OK: a) the royal family needs to stop leaving its underwear in easy-to-find places, and b) bloomers? We realize the pair is quite old, but even before the ’60s, people were wearing standard panties as we know them. [TMZ] Keep reading »

Meet Kaylin Ransom, a 22-year-old resident of Ocala, FL. She spends her weeks doing hair and her weekends in Lake County Jail. The aptly named Ransom is under a plea deal for felony battery and child abuse, and whenever she checks into her “weekend home” she has to take a new mug shot. So following in the footsteps of Naomi Campbell, who famously wore haute couture while performing her community service with the New York Department of Sanitation, Ransom gets glam, in her own way, before taking her mug shots. She’s known for her lace-front wigs, extensions, false eyelashes, and photo shoot-worthy makeup. Now, if Ransom had lesser charges, I’d say this was a unique way of giving the system the finger, but charges of battery and child abuse warrant a lot more repentance, in my book, than getting fly for a weekly jail stay.

Jared Leto is a master of the Facebook—he constantly uploads sweet stuff to his page. But apparently, he’s not giving his new blue ‘do enough coverage. So, Jared Leto’s Mint Blue Hair is showing off his awesome style — which, as you’ll notice in the photo to the right, he totally cribbed from “Velvet Goldmine” rocker Brian Slade. Right?! I mean, it can’t be just coincidence that he’s touring England with his band, 30 Seconds To Mars, looking like the glam rock luvah from the British flick. Clearly, Jared is begging for a sequel to be made starring him. Writer/Director Todd Haynes, get on it! Keep reading »
