As the year winds down, we’re handing out accolades to the celebs who impressed us with their spectacular senses of style. We’ve covered the best hair and beauty icons and red carpet looks on the women’s side; now let’s see which celeb men brought their A-game in the wardrobe department, shall we? Click on the gallery to check out our picks for best-dressed guys of the year, in no particular order…
Last year we rewrote some traditional Christmas carols to reflect the awkward reality of modern holiday celebrations. This year we thought we’d give some festive tunes a pop culture twist. Let’s kick things off with three songs to honor the strange twists and turns of three celebrity couples who made headlines this year. Grab some eggnog, do your vocal warm-ups, and join us in a Hollywood holiday serenade… Keep reading »
Last night, a whole mess of iconic musicians got together for the epic “12-12-12″ Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert, which aired on a number of different TV networks and lasted nearly six hours. While the show was definitely lacking in female performers — where were New York City legends like Patti Smith or Bette Midler?! — it was chock full of big name acts like Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys (holdin’ it down for the ladies), Kanye West (wearing a controversial leather skirt), Paul McCartney, the remaining members of Nirvana, Billy Joel, and The Who. I couldn’t clip the whole show, obviously, but here are seven performances that I especially enjoyed!
Kim Kardashian looks classy and put-together, with all errant body parts neatly tucked in and a skin color more closely resembling that of a human being than a leather satchel. Dare I say she even looks… expensive? For a woman worth hundreds of millions who usually looks as if she blew her $20 allowance in the clearance section at Charlotte Russe, then picked up a couple extra accessories and makeup tips from the traveling circus on the way home, this is highly unusual. And good. It’s good. Thanks, Kanye.
We’re so bored of our own text messages. The only people who text us regularly are our mothers. Hi mom! We love you, but blergh. We wonder what kind of sexy text messages celeb couples are exchanging … hmmm. They must me more titillating than ours. Or at least more entertaining.
After Scarlett Johansson debuted her new tattoo, Amelia and I both didn’t get it. We had an in-depth conversation about it, where we came to the realization that the reasons we didn’t like it were: A) it was exactly the kind of tattoo we expected Scarjo to get (the same way we expected her to release a Tom Waits cover album) and B) something about it seemed like she was trying too hard to demonstrate her street cred (the same way her Tom Waits cover album did).
We say this as two tattooed women who both have Chinese character tattoos we’re embarrassed of. I have two other tattoos, which I love because they have deep meaning to me. Maybe “Lucky You” has deep meaning to Scarjo, who knows? That’s not important. What’s important is this: Scarjo and her “Lucky You” tattoo inspired a much longer reverie about other celebrity tattoos we are expecting to see any day now. When they come true, just remember, we called it first.
