Over the weekend, The New York Times’ advice column, “Social Q’s,” got a query from a recently dumped girl who just couldn’t seem to cheer up. Writer Philip Galanes pointed out, the proper soundtrack can get you grooving to your own gloom! He singled out Pink’s new anthem about getting back out there after her own divorce, “So What.” He then encouraged the sad soul to sing along at full blast until it became her new mantra: “So, so what/I’m still a rock star/I’ve got my rock moves/And I don’t need you.” Yeah, that’s some solid (as a rock) advice! But Pink isn’t the only one who has weathered the storm after a split. Since misery loves company, here are The Frisky’s picks for beating the blues to get you back in the mood to be your butt-kicking self! Keep reading »

The big 4-0 maybe the new 30, but 50 and up are the new twentysomething! From their way with men to their media coverage, the only hot flashes these ladies suffer from are from the paparazzi! Just check out these celeb sex symbols:
Cher This fierce fashionista may be suiting up as Catwoman at 62! Rumor has it, she is director Christopher Nolan’s first choice to play the purring vixen in the next Batman movie. He wants a vamp that’s adored by younger men — in this case, the younger men may be gay, but hey, she still rocks!
ABC has hired one of the writers from Dawson’s Creek, Maggie Friedman, to recreate the 1987 classic, The Witches of Eastwick, into a new TV pilot. We’re so psyched — and not just because we’ll be saving the movie theater ticket price! Just like the film, the TV adaptation will be loosely based on the John Updike book about three women who were stuck, jilted by their husbands, in the same small New England town. Together they use some womanly wizardry to summon up a man to satisfy them, but he’s (of course) more trouble than he’s worth. Now, the original cast was slammin’: Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer, Susan Sarandon, and Jack Nicholson. But since the teen drama is totally BACK — hello, Gossip Girl and 90210 — which teen TV queens can hold a candle up to the spell they cast today? We here at The Frisky have some suggestions:
- The Devil, originally played by the irresistible Jack Nicholson, has some big sexy shoes to fill. It’s gonna take a guy who’s so seductive, he’s evil. We’re thinking Gossip Girl’s bad boy, Ed Westwick because he can make women do anything — even like plaid short-shorts on a guy. Plus “Westwick does Eastwick” makes a great headline. Come to think of it, “Westwick Falls In Love With The Women Of The Frisky” does have a certain ring to it too…
Simcha was a little bummed that the new Clueless video game doesn’t involve matching outfits, like that way-before-its-time computer program Cher uses in the movie. But you can upload photos of your clothes to sites like Weardrobe to keep track of all your stuff. Personally, I think this seems like a lot of work, but it could be useful when you need help remembering your favorite go-to outfits, like this morning, when I woke up an hour late and couldn’t figure out what to wear. Rather than stand in standing in front of my closet pondering apparel options, I could have visited my virtual closet and picked something that worked in the past. Technology can be so useful.

There’s some stiff competition, but the sluttiest Barbie of all time has just come out: Black Canary. It’s based on the comic book character and conservative Christian groups are pissed because the kids brand doll has been (even more) tricked out in this outfit — a vinyl teddy and knee high boots with fishnets. Does Barbie like it rough? Now, we’re not sure who the market for this S&M Barbie is, but it looks just like Cher from the “If I Could Turn Back Time” video. Patent vinyl is clearly a timeless fashion classic. [Dlisted]

Strange things are going to be happening on Oprah. In an upcoming show, Cher is going to reveal that she had a relationship with Tom Cruise — when he was 23 and she was 39. The Daily Mail reported that Cher told Oprah, “I was crazy about him.” She said he was an awkward young man trying to adjust to life as an up-and-coming actor (Risky Business had just been released): “He said he felt like such a boob in school and nobody talked to him.” Once a boob, always a boob, I guess.

In honor of Australiaâ€™s 30th Gay Mardi Gras, a website tallied votes to make a definitive list of The 50 Gayest Songs of All Timeâ€¦and according to this catalogue, my iTunes makes me a bigger ‘mo than Harvey Fierstein! While dance floor divas Madonna, Gloria Gaynor, The Village People, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, and Cher are all honored with two songs each, George Michael, the leather jacket daddy who got “Too Funky” in a public restroom, his car, and behind some bushes, tops the list with three tracks (including one from his time in 80′s pop duo Wham!). To see if youâ€™re a true friend of Dorothyâ€™sâ€¦or just a drag queen born with a vajayjay, check out the chart toppers here. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
After two episodes of Lipstick Jungle, weâ€™re hooked like the show is made of chocolate. Despite wanting to hate it, weâ€™ve managed to make it through the name “Lipstick Jungle”, some cheesy dialogue, and the showâ€™s “how to look like the stars” Maybelline make-up commercials without puking. But there is still one chunk thatâ€™s too hard to swallow and, sadly, itâ€™s smack dab in the middle of our favorite part here at the Frisky: the sex scenes. Nico, played by blonde beauty Kim Raver, has a hot boy toy, Kirby, played by the six-pack named Robert Buckley. While the man has plenty of sex appeal, the 80â€™s kid inside us has stopped picturing the pink Nintendo Kirby and has gotten stuck on yet another timeless image: Cher. You know her signature top lip lick? She, and her impersonators (like Jack on Will and Grace — check out the clip above!), do it all the timeâ€¦and so does Nico while sheâ€™s having sex! Instantly “Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves” starts playing in our heads — although, perhaps that would be a better show title…. Anyway, we hope this week weâ€™ll get to stay in the moment when Nico and Kirby get down and Nicoâ€™s tongue wonâ€™t get out.
