Today’s Lady News: Bristol Palin Makes Bank Preaching Abstinence For The Candies Foundation

  • According to an investigation by Jezebel reporter Irin Carmon, The Candies Foundation paid $252,500 in fees in 2009 to pro-abstinence teen mom Bristol Palin, while only giving $35,000 to actual anti-teen pregnancy initiatives.

  • Vince Neil of Motley Crue has been charged with domestic violence and disorderly conduct for allegedly forcefully poking his ex-girlfriend in the shoulder blade with his finger in March while in Las Vegas.

Bristol Palin’s Abstinence PSA Is Pointless, Insulting & Hypocritical

Britney’s In Between Somebody’s Legs For New Candie’s Ad

Britney Puts Candies On Your “Radar”

Britney Spears first debuted her manufactured makeover in an ad for Candie’s shoes. Standing next to yummy desserts and a pink polo-ed prince charming, Brit-Brit’s “Barbie” look is admittedly better than, well, being bald.

In it, Britney keeps up the Barbie fairytale, eyeing a polo-playing prepster who will hopefully fall for her because of her rockin’ Candie’s shoes. In true Britney style, she follows her man around a mansion singing a Britney exclusive, “Radar.” Is it just me or does the song sound oddly similar to “Womanizer?” [via Jezebel] Keep reading »

Fergie, Seventeen Mag & Candies Talk to Teens

From Juno to Jamie Lynn Spears, teenage pregnancy is making a comeback — LL Cool J style (don’t call it a comeback, it’s been here for years!). Thankfully, Seventeen magazine and the Candies clothing line are stepping up like a big sister to talk to teen girls about the trend. In the February issue, they lure the babies in with a candy themed make-up article, then get down to business, talking about the choices, chances, and responsibilities involved with sexual activity. From tips on handling tough situations to quotes from other girls who have gotten pregnant, Seventeen does a bang-up job with their spread. Bonus points to Fergie for being the poster girl for the new initiative — she knows what to put out. So take a hint from the headlines — if you’ve got a teen queen, you’ve got to school her in the ways of love. Or just make her turn to page 110. [Seventeen Magazine] Keep reading »
