We may be a little old to go see Disney movies by ourselves (although not too old to belt out “Part Of Your World” the shower). But we’ll be dragging the nearest seven-year-old to drag to a theater and to see “Brave,” Pixar’s newest computer-animated film with a female protagonist. Lots of Disney flicks star princesses who are sweet, passive, and looking for love; “Brave” stars a spunky gal who is a skilled archer and not content with the life her parents want for her. Princess Merida lives in the Scottish highlands and defies her parents wishes and insists on following her own path in life. Pixar has released a three-minute clip from “Brave” (longer than the teaser trailer they released before) and we have to say we’re digging it! Anyone down for a mass-Frisky reader movie-going trip?

Brenda Song, Disney star and almost-baby-mama for Miley Cyrus’s tattooed bro Trace, must be real jazzed about something, and she wants to share it with the whole friggin’ world. That’s the only logical reason for this absolutely atrocious smiley face poncho. Geez, Ms. Song, try and be considerate – people are going to have to look at you. [World of Wonder]
After battling anorexia, singer/actress Demi Lovato is furious her former boss, the Disney Channel, joked about the eating disorder on a TV show. A character on the program Shake It Up said recently: “I could just eat you up. Well, if I ate.” Lovato responded in an incensed, all-capitals tweet. “I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actresses from the pressures of an eating disorder, and yet still make jokes about that very disease,” she wrote, referring to her own exit from a Disney series. “Eating disorders are not something to joke about,” she added.

You know what little girls don’t have enough of? PRINCESSES. The scarcity of doe-eyes, glass slippers, and pink frilly dresses is truly criminal. But children need not suffer anymore: Disney is introducing a new princess marketed towards two- to seven-year-olds. “Sofia The First,” a red-haired princess in an elegant purple gown, is getting her own TV movie and TV series that will air on both Disney Channel and Disney Junior. But Sofia is noteworthy not just ’cause she is a princess — because she is a girl princess. Up until now, all Disney princesses (like Jasmine, Snow White and Cinderella) have been adult women. Hopefully this means Sofia is concerned with something more important than scoring a ring from Prince Charming? [NY Times] Keep reading »
- Hollywood’s obsession with making any and every movie 3D is totally stupid … except when it comes to beloved films from my childhood. Following the success of “The Lion King” in 3D, Disney will release “Beauty & The Beast” and “The Little Mermaid.” Plus, Pixar will release “Finding Nemo” and “Monster’s Inc.” in 3D. How dope will Ursula the sea witch be in the third dimension?! [The Mary Sue]
- Are you as big a Ryan Gosling fan as Amelia? (Doubtful.) You can win a replica of the scorpion jacket he wears in “Drive”! [BuzzNet]
- Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio are dunzo after five months. Not to be a hater, but I think we can all agree we saw that whirlwind romance coming to an end. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
When most woman read today that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes had been spotted holding hands in Adventure Park at Disneyland, and later snuggling while watching a water show in Tomorrowland, they got very depressed. But since I do not quite understand the Gosling worship, another thought crossed my mind: wow, Ryan sure seems to bring a lot of ladies to Disneyland. What’s up with that?
After a jump, a review of the depths of Ryan’s Disneyland obsession: Keep reading »
I know, you’re thinking — How do I show my insane devotion to Disney’s “The Lion King” in a new and innovative way? Well, makeup artist Katie Alves reached deep and came up with animated film-themed eye makeup. Like these “Lion King” coated peepers. How crazy detailed is that? And how many hours did that poor model have to sit there with her eyes closed while Alves painstakingly painted a full panel? [Fashionista] Keep reading »
Back in the olden days, Disney Studios used to make educational videos for the youngsters using their flair for storytelling. So how might Walt Disney’s genius have explained, say, menstruation to children? Wonder no longer! Above, Disney’s “Story Of Menstruation.” I really wish this was done in more of a trippy, “Fantasia” style, but I am pleased that the uterine lining that is shed during menstruation is described as “velvety.” Also, glad to know that extremely vigorous horseback-riding is not only okay during my monthly visitor, but encouraged.

We’re sure you recognize the face of Mickey Mouse’s famous girlfriend Minnie, but something else is different about her. Has Minnie gone fashionable? Why, yes, as Forever 21 and Disney have teamed up for a special holiday collection featuring the stylish Minnie Muse. Minnie has traded in her chunky pumps and polka dots for strappy YSL-esque platform sandals, a chic red peacoat, and two It-bags. But, of course, her signature, oversized bow is still present. We’ve fallen hard for the Minnie Muse Note Pad, but the rest of the collection shouldn’t be missed either, especially at Forever 21 prices.
