  • Emma Watson says when she got her pixie cut, asshole journalists would ask her if she was a lesbian and if this meant she was coming out. Facepalm. [Independent UK]

  • Read the open letter to Whitney Houston that her mom, Cissy Houston, penned for the funeral service this weekend. I’m warning you, it’s a three-tissue read. [Uptown Magazine]

Top 9 Songs About Self-Love

Writing a song about self-love isn’t as easy as it sounds, I imagine. How do you pen a tune about masturbation that doesn’t sound obvious or conjure up disturbing images? The following artists did it right, in no particular order (and check out clips of the songs, after the jump). Keep reading »

Making A Cover Album: All The Cool Kids Are Doing It

There was a time when recording a cover album—with the exception of David Bowie’s Pin Ups—was taken as unequivocal proof that a band’s creative mojo was tapped. Lately, however, the opposite seems to be true. Last summer, Beck formed a musical club dedicated to covering classic albums. Then the Flaming Lips remade Dark Side of the Moon to ring in the new decade. Next, Nada Surf and (two-thirds of) Supergrass released albums crammed full of covers of their favorite songs. And now Mates of State and Cyndi Lauper have both announced that they’ll be releasing cover albums this summer.

So what’s up with the cover craze? After the jump, a detailed look at this new slew of albums. Keep reading »

Going Gaga For MAC

MAC’s spring campaign for Viva Glam is hella tame considering it stars two professional wackadoodles, Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper. But you know what? The tame look suits them both. Sorta. [NYmag.com] Keep reading »

Barbie Goes Back To The ’80s

Barbie collectors, get psyched for December: Mattel is launching their “Ladies of the ’80s” line, complete with mini interpretations of the great Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, and Cyndi Lauper. Joan is dressed in not only leather pants but also hot pink high tops, while Cyndi flashes her fishnets, and Debbie shows off a pink body-conscious strappy dress that could easily be worn today. One thing that would make these dolls even better? They should come with their own personal soundtracks. [Jezebel]

Cyndi Lauper, Bret Michaels, Sharon Osbourne Make For A Rockin’ “Celebrity Apprentice 3″

Donald Trump isn’t so good at keeping secrets. The cast for “Celebrity Apprentice 3″ is supposed to be under wraps, but paparazzi photographers totally caught these famous business wannabees walking down New York’s 15th Street shooting the opening credits. And, uh, I never thought I would say this, but I can’t wait for the premiere. This season’s cast is amazing—like “Dancing with the Stars” caliber. Cyndi Lauper, Rod Blagojevich, Bret Michaels, Sinbad, Sharon Osbourne, chef Curtis Stone and baseball legend Daryl Strawberry—it’s way more surreal than “The Surreal Life.” And we just heard that, until an hour ago, Cyndi and Sharon were waiting tables at the Burger Heaven on 63rd Street, where they’d created the day’s menu. Meanwhile Bret and Curtis were doing the same at the franchise on 53rd, and maybe charging $100 for a platter? Ooh. Ooh. I know what should happen. Maybe Bret and Cyndi will hook up “Rock of Love” style? That’d be really sweet. [NY Post, Midtown Lunch] Keep reading »

Charity Buzz Lets You Buy Time With Celebs, For A Good Cause

Sometimes celebrities are really generous and help save orphans and build houses for poor people and stuff. And many of them are volunteering their time for this website CharityBuzz.com, which auctions off time with celebrities for donations to the celebrity’s charity of choice. We like this idea, because you can hang out with your favorite star without incurring a restraining order! On the website right now: a Daytona/NASCAR weekend with Patrick Dempsey (current bid: $7,250); a visit to the set of “Five Killers” to meet Ashton Kutcher (current bid: $850); and lunch and a tarot card reading with Cyndi Lauper (current bid $6,444). [CharityBuzz]

Sure, it would be an awesome opportunity to put your seduction of McDreamy plan into motion, but we’ve got ten better ideas that we hope Charity Buzz will take to heart. Here’s what we’d like to bid on: Keep reading »
