A History Of Tanning Culture, From Coco Chanel To Snooki

A History of Tanning Culture, From Coco Chanel to Snooki

Summertime. Cue the languid bathers soaking in the blistering summer sun in the park, on the beach and just about everywhere you look. Everyone’s trying to get that summer glow. Unless, of course, you’re me. I’m the girl reapplying her broad spectrum sunscreen and wearing a big floppy sun hat.

I’ve written before about why I don’t tan. Still, though I long ago accepted that my skin would never be described as “sun-kissed” or “bronzed,” the culture of tanning fascinates me. One in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their lives; skin cancer is now the most common form of cancer in the United States. Incidences of melanoma, the deadliest of skin cancers, increased by 800 percent in women and 400 percent in men between 1970 and 2009. Of the seven most common forms of cancer in America, melanoma is the only one whose incidence is increasing, and people who use a tanning bed before the age of 35 increase their risk of melanoma by 87 percent. Tanning has become akin to smoking – people know it puts them at risk for disease, but many just can’t stop. A significant number of those who have reluctantly dragged themselves out of the sun and tanning beds still spray tan. So what gives? Read more on College Candy…

Snooki Talks About Losing Her Baby Weight, Doesn’t Understand What Baby Weight Is

Seriously, how good is Snooki looking these days? I think she’s always been cute, but when she got pregnant, she stopped tanning, and it seems like she’s started using more natural makeup (natural for Snooki, of course), and honestly, I think she’s super hot right now. Unfortunately, Snooki doesn’t agree with me. She just did an interview with In Touch, and she says she’s still got a ways to go:

“I really don’t like how I look,” the “Jersey Shore” star tells In Touch in an exclusive interview. “When you have a baby you get stretch marks, and it’s all loose skin. Everything needs to get back to where it was.” Read more…

10 Untimely Pop Culture Halloween Costumes

I only recently discovered the amazing phenomenon that is “Friday Night Lights,” and more specifically, the glorious perfection that is Connie Briton as Tami Taylor. I told Amelia I wanted to be Tami Taylor for Halloween and hopefully win some kind of costume party prize for Least Timely Pop Culture Reference, but then Amelia threatened to dress up as Amelie and steal my crown. Bitch. Anyway, just in case you’re looking for a costume idea that’s neither current (like these internet obsessions) or cheekily retro, but instead falls awkwardly into the pop culture gulch of the past few years, well, click through for some delightfully outdated ideas…

Snooki May Have Left A Tampon In For Days — What’s The Big Deal?

Snooki’s ex-boyfriend Jeff Miranda is laying some super-gross accusations against her on a popular website. She’s dirty and mean, for starters. But worst of all, and deserving of three exclamation points, is the revelation that Snooki has been known to extend the use of a tampon for an extraordinarily long time.

My ex gf the snookster doesnt believe in showers and likes to wear the same cloth for days. While we were together during the filming of jersey shore season 3, she barely changed her underwear. And left the same tampon in for days!!!

Dude. DUDE!!! I do not believe you!!! At all!!! How would he even know this? Was she in the habit of inviting him to watch every time she changed her feminine hygiene products? No, of course not. He’s just being a jerk and trying to come up with the most ridiculous, made-up slander his filthy, feeble little mind can come up with. But guess what? Been there, done that! I left a tampon in for days!!! and lived. Let me explain. Read more…

Anthony Bourdain Snooki Shore Thing
Fist Pump!

Is there anything more entertaining than when celebrities read from trashy books? “No Reservations” star Anthony Bourdain is no Gilbert Gottfried reading 50 Shades Of Grey but he does bring a certain Jersey-fied panache to Snooki’s novel, A Shore Thing. Oh, God, I just realized she (“her ghostwriter”) is probably going to write a novel about having a baby. [BlackBook Mag]

JWOWW’s Engagement Means The Double Wedding Of Our Dreams May Come True

Word has it that Jenni “JWOWW” Farley of “Jersey Shore” fame is engaged to her long-time boyfriend Roger Matthews. Don’t bust out the champagne just yet though because it’s all hush hush for now, as MTV reportedly wants her to save the big news for filming of season two of “Snooki & JWOWW.”

That’s a little anticlimactic, but congratulations to them if it’s true. Their relationship has been beyond tumultuous, but they truly seem to love each other, so I’m not surprised to see them take this next step, especially with her BFF Snooki settling down with a baby and getting engaged herself. It tends to happen like that with friends — when one jumps on the marriage-and-baby bandwagon, it starts a whole string of events.

And you know what the best possible event that could happen next is? A double wedding of course. Read more …
