When Cameron Diaz came out against laser hair removal and waxing pubic hair, I thought she was drawing attention to her new book, The Body Book, and pube talk would disappear in a 24-hour news cycle. She called a lady’s bush “a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be courting your sexiness” and warned laser fans that “all fads change, people.” It seemed like brain junk food — celebrity + sexy body part = pageviews! Instead, she seems to have incited a domino effect.
We’re only three weeks into January and here is most of the press coverage pubic hair has gotten this year. UK’s Guardian declared 2014 “the year of the bush.” Then an American Apparel store mannequin had pubic hair peeking out of her undies. YourTango wrote that pubes are “making a comeback.” The Wire declared “The Pubic Hair Renaissance Is Here.” Dame Magazine quipped “more and more women are letting their gardens grow.” Gaby Hoffmann’s character sprouted an enormous bush on the most recent episode of “Girls.” And now the fashion blog Styleite has an interview with a gynecologist about “the health benefits of bush.”

Your eyes do not deceive you! It is not 1995, but that is Gwen Stefani singing Bush’s hit song “Glycerine” on stage with her husband Gavin Rossdale at KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas this weekend. The two met at the event 17 years ago in 1995 and have basically been together ever since. I saw No Doubt and Bush when they toured together shortly thereafter and I gotta admit, I got mid-’90s nostalgia chills (a special kind of chills, BTW) watching this. Time to listen to Sixteen Stone for the first time in a decade…
There’s no eloquent way to talk about bush, or for those of you who prefer to be anatomically correct, pubic hair. But some terms for ladies’ pubic regions are far more inappropriate than others. For example, a certain Frisky employee who shall remained unnamed, referred to her own bush as a “fur pie.” As in, “I am off to get my fur pie waxed.” I had never heard the term before and I hope never to hear it again. After the jump, a list of unapproved names for a woman’s bush. Keep reading »
Americans aren’t the only ones happy to see former President George W. Bush move out of Washington. Veet, the stinky hair-removal product, has joined waxing salons in using the “Goodbye Bush” concept to their benefit. Lawn landscaping companies really should get in on the action before it’s too late. [AdFreak.com] Keep reading »
Did you know that Bush lead singer, and Gwen Stefani hubby/baby daddy, Gavin Rossdale has a solo career? We didn’t, but now we’re paying attention! The British hottie has a new single, “Love Remains The Same”, and by the looks of the cover art art, ours will. [Oh No They Didn’t!] Keep reading »
