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.
“It’s a modern day version of Rapunzel. It’s this hot chick that lives in a castle, but oddly enough it’s her pubic hair that she, uh, that she lets out the window. Kind of strange.”
—A word to the wise for Brad Garrett, the “Everybody Loves Raymond” star who does the voice of character Hook Hand Thug in Disney’s new flick, “Tangled.” When one is promoting a Disney movie, it is best not to talk about pubic hair when doing radio interviews. [NY Post] Keep reading »
My little nieces think I’m a nut job: They hand me Cinderella Barbie and tell me we’re going to meet Prince Charming at the ball and I’m, like, “Instead, let’s pretend Barbie is a brain surgeon! Or the first female president!” Lucky for crazy aunts like me, Disney is abstaining from princess flicks for a bit. After “Tangled,” Disney’s newest flick about Rapunzel, the company will focus on non-princess-centric movies, like “Winnie The Pooh” and “Reboot Ralph,” about a video game character who has been left behind with new technology (i.e., “Toy Story” 2.0). Two princess-related movies in development, “The Snow Queen” and “Jack and the Bean Stalk,” have also been killed.
But Disney isn’t swearing off princesses because pretty women who moon after boys all day are sucky role models for little girls. (Ha!) Rather, princess flicks, the company lamented, do not rake in enough dough. Keep reading »
When it comes to cosmetics, how important is the packaging to you? Are you likely to buy something just because it has something distinctive on it? Like, for example, MAC‘s new Disney-themed makeup collection, which features cartoon character designs of some of the empire’s villains like Cruella De Ville, the Evil Queen from Snow White, and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. This is just our opinion, but to us, these products feel a bit like your normal MAC purchases simply re-packaged with new graphics. And we also kind of feel like from afar, pulling out an Evil Queen lip gloss from your purse might look like you’re lacquering up with the souvenir you got from your last Disneyland trip (or the souvenir you stole from your 11-year-old cousin’s makeup box). After all, regular Disney kid makeup (bottom lip gloss images) seem fairly similar, at least in the straightforward packaging and aesthetic. No? [Refinery 29, PartyCity] Keep reading »
“You don’t need to have fancy people friends! Things around your house can be your friends! Don’t just sit on your furniture, talk to it!” That’s one of the awesome messages Belle teaches little girls in Disney‘s “Beauty & The Beast” — at least as interpreted by The Second City Network, a comedy group. After the jump, check out Ariel from “The Little Mermaid”‘s not-so-great advice. Keep reading »
Sometimes, the world just makes perfect sense. Nordstrom is having a sale, Ali picked Roberto on “The Bachelorette,” and some actors are meant to play animated Disney characters. PasteMagazine.com hit these doppelgangers on the head. Angelina Jolie is Vanessa from “The Little Mermaid,” the human temptress that was in actuality evil Ursula; Seth Rogen‘s goofiness makes him the perfect Baloo the Bear from “The Jungle Book”; and RuPaul and the Sea Witch clearly share a hair stylist. We know that some celebrities look like animals, but these fictional character resemblances are just uncanny. How did we never see this before? Check out all the comparisons at Paste Magazine.

I was never the little girl who dreamed of being a princess. While other kids dressed up in pink chiffon and glitter, I fashioned three-piece suits out of garbage bags and pretended to be a lawyer defending my Babar doll in a custody dispute. So when I got the chance to audition to be a Disney Princess at Disney Hong Kong, it wasn’t about channeling some childhood fantasy. I knew I would be faking it. Or so I thought. Keep reading »
