“Obama Is Gay!” Plus 10 Other Tabloid Lies

ZOMG! Did you hear?! President Obama is GAY! According to The Globe, that is. Tabloids sell amazing lies that millions of people buy. While it would have been doubly empowering for America to not only elect its first African-American, but also its first openly homosexual President, these rumors are just fun fantasies good for a laugh — which we could all use right about now. Guess that’s why The National Enquirer is America’s best selling weekly “newspaper.” Here are our favorite outrageously LOL rag-mag cover stories…

Quickies!: Potentially Offensive Cartoon, Snuggie Pub Crawl, & Conan Says Bye To NYC

    Trend! Celebs Who Twitter

    Thanks to the immediacy of Twitter we can find out all sorts of stuff about celebs that the paparazzi and gossipers can’t. We now know that the First Twitter Celeb Couple, Ashton Kutcher and wife Demi Moore, are really irritated by their neighbor’s early morning construction. And all the details leading up to the birth of Erykah Badu’s second daughter were revealed via her baby daddy’s Twitter. She didn’t go to a hospital, but had a midwife, and she didn’t use any drugs. When she was dilated eight and a half centimeters, she felt the urge to push. That last detail was a little TMI, but in case you want to find out all the gory or mundane aspects of your favorite celebrity, check out our list after the jump. Keep reading »

    The Obamas Are Bringing Sexy Back To Marriage

    I’m a big fan of the old “Thin Man” movies from the 30′s and ’40′s. If you haven’t seen them, they’re about Nick Charles, a wry and debonair detective who enjoys martinis, solving convoluted murder plots, and spending time with his lanky wife Nora. I can take or leave the murder mystery element of the films; what I really love are Nick and Nora as a couple. They have a certain rapport that you don’t see between a man and a woman in too many movies, past or present. Nora isn’t just standing around breathlessly, waiting to be taken care of, nor is she rolling her eyes at Nick’s antics, waiting for him to hurry up and grow up. They tease each other, are interested in each other, seem attracted to each other, and occasionally like to get soused together. Who (apart from teetotalers) wouldn’t like to have this type of relationship with his or her partner? I watched a DVD extra on “The Thin Man” after I bought the box set and a commenter put it perfectly into words: “‘The Thin Man’ made marriage look sexy.’” Keep reading »

    Quickies!: Barack Obama Does Some Of The “Single Ladies” Choreography

  • President Obama “Put A Ring On It” in front of Beyonce. Priceless! [EW.com]
  • Papa Simpson supposedly screwed Nick Lachey out of $500,000 for a fitness video, when he instead arranged for Jessica Simpson to do the video alone for the full price of $1 million. [Perez Hilton] — Gotta love a dad who has your and HIS best interests at heart.
  • Finally, a real use for Crocs — a doggie bed. I guess if Fido is going to chew the hell out of a “shoe” it might as well be his own fugtastic bed. [DListed]

    Five Reasons Why We’d Love An Obama Baby

    By now you’ve heard the totally unsubstantiated rumor that Michelle Obama might be pregnant. The chances of it being true are slim. After all, having just turned 45 years old, Michelle is of the age where it’s very difficult to conceive naturally, and something tells me that she and Barack (Is it disrespectful to be on a — one-sided — first name basis with the President and the First Lady?) aren’t making top secret trips to the fertility clinic. So, knowing this rumor is most likely going to end up being just that — a rumor — we can’t help but feel a little giddy at the thought of an Obama baby. Five reasons why, after the jump… Keep reading »

    Among President Obama’s First Orders: Casual Weekend Attire

    The word “change” is often associated with President Obama, and he certainly got down to business during his first week in office. Not only did he sign an order to shut down the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Obama also issued an informal order calling for a “business casual” dress code on weekends.

    Of course, this is most certainly not his most important act as president so far, but it does say a lot about the man. Former President George W. Bush wouldn’t allow anyone to enter the Oval Office without a coat and tie, even on weekends. Already, Obama has already been photographed without his jacket during the week, and wearing slacks and a sweater for a meeting with his chief economic advisor on the weekend.

    And the weekend dress code isn’t the only difference between the Obama White House and the Bush White House. Obama’s arrives at work at 9am, rather than the crack of dawn, and he has been seen working as late as 10pm. The refrigerators are stocked with his favorite Honest Tea Flavors, Black Forest Berry and Green Dragon, and he wants to get rid of the green and white plates in the Oval Office: “I’m not really a plates kind of guy.” [NY Times] Keep reading »
