Dear Young Women On My Subway Car Yesterday,
I remember high school, a small world in which everyone feels like a character in an epic drama. A place where peers pass judgement and share hearsay as entertainment. Where few consider the appropriateness or repercussions of their conversations. Yesterday, the two of you stood in a New York City subway car and gossiped loudly about a classmate, making the entire subway car uncomfortable, especially as the story was about a teenage girl having sex in a public place. You laughed at her confusion about a possible pregnancy even though a condom was used. You proceeded to tell the intimate details of what she and her partner had done. I won’t share those details because my intention is not to shame the subject of your conversation. And besides, I have no right. Keep reading »
I never realized how much time I spent gossiping until I tried to stop. I’m not a mean-spirited person in the least. The opposite really — I go out of my way to be nice to people. But man, I can kiki (that’s what the drag queens call it) up a storm. As a friend of mine said, “It’s your bread and butter.” But I’m starting to realize that all that butter is clogging my mental arteries and draining my energy.
Last week, I started a program to get my yoga teacher certification. I’ve been practicing since I was 17 and decided it was time to take my knowledge to a higher level. In our first session, the instructors suggested a number of things for the students to strive for, for the duration of our four-month training: daily meditation, contemplating vegetarianism, making a commitment not to lie (even white lies) and doing away with all gossip. Daily meditation I can do, vegetarianism I can’t, not lying … that’s a whole other essay.
I don’t gossip that much, was my knee-jerk reaction, that should be easy. Keep reading »
Will and Jaden Smith appeared on Thai TV show “The Woody Show” to promote their new film, “After Earth.” You can watch the full segment here, but let me give you the big highlight. The host asks Will, “Have you ever kissed your son on Thai television before?” Will replies, “I can kiss my son.” Then he grabs Jaden and kisses him on the mouth. There appeared to have been tongue involved.
Jaden responded to the kissing incident saying, “[That] happens all the time.” I say, to each family their own.
These two aren’t the only famous family members who like to lock lips. Click onward to see other celebrity family members caught kissing. [Hello Beautiful]
When Lady Gaga has a hip replacement, you’d better believe she’s going to roll out of the recovery room in a couture wheelchair. And naturally, Terry Richardson will be waiting there to photograph her in it.
Instead of hobbling around on crutches like most of us would after her recent hip replacement, the singer is recovering in a one-of-a-kind, 24-karat gold apparatus designed by Ken Borochov of luxury brand Mordekai. Her golden wheelchair is complete with a black tufted calf leather seat, a removable leather canopy, padded leg rests and gold-plated brakes. Keep reading »
Remember when Amanda Bynes popped up on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show “All That.” She was the newest edition to the cast and almost immediately out-shined everyone. The “Ask Ashley” segment where she played a hot headed middle-schooler who was more likely to have a violent outburst than offer any real advice was COMEDY GOLD. Amanda was so good that she was the only cast member besides the legendary Kenan and Kel to get her own show. Even when The Amanda Show was over, what could have been the end of any young actress’ career wasn’t over. Amanda scored a sitcom “What I Like About You” that was on for four seasons. She was in that so-bad-it’s-good-movie, “She’s The Man,” and co-starred with Emma Stone in “Easy A.” Read more…
There are some crazy rumors popping up that Beyonce Knowles is actually a mother to Solange and NOT her sister! WTF, right?!?
Could you even imagine that? Firstly, let’s look at the facts, shall we? According to Wikipedia, Beyonce was born on September 4, 1981. Wikipedia also reports that Solange was born on June 24, 1986. So, for Bey to technically be Solange’s mother, she would’ve had to have had her when she was a mere five-years-old. Interesting. Read more …
It’s no secret that Rihanna really loves her strippers and her desire to touch them often gets her in trouble (She was once kicked out of a club)
The “Stay” singer recently hit up a sex club in Toronto where she came dressed to role play and almost got into a fight with another woman.
If you believe the National Enquirer:
RiRi came into the club in a black cat-suit and bondage-style leather policeman’s hat and pretended to arrest several women, frisking them and even copping feels of their chests to satisfy her gay desires. Read more …
