Not like we haven’t already seen Lindsay Lohan’s whole kit and kaboodle thanks to the paparazzi, bottle service, her refusal to wear panties, and that little Marilyn Monroe-inspired shoot for New York. But Playboy just offered the hottest lesbian in Hollywood $700,000 to pose nude for their magazine. Surprisingly enough, Lohan said “NO!” It’s amazing how love can change a girl. I can’t tell if this decision was brilliant or a bomb, but here’s how other stars have fared after telling Hugh Hefner to bug off, plus fifteen stars who’ve said “Yes” to Hef and have seen their stars sky rocket — and tank.

Last night, The Frisky’s Emily and I celebrated 15 years of Bust magazine in a circus tent packed with crafty, sassy, stylish babes and their gay boyfriends. Performances by booty beat internet icon Leslie Hall (who autographed the concert t-shirt her mom sold me), burlesque style strippers like Peekaboo Pointe, Amy Sedaris, DJ JD Samson from Le Tigre, and drag king lounge act lover Murray Hill are how these girls like to get down! The ladies of Bust are a good time — and not just because they gave away 500 vibrators to the crowd. Since 1993, they’ve also given women’s mags an irresistible edge. In a market flooded with stupid self-help tips and fashion for stick figures, they showcase women who are hip, hot, and, above all, their outrageous selves. The mag is not afraid to support the freaks and geeks that are flying in the face of traditional pre-packaged celebs. They put revolutionary people in print, without discriminating based on looks and marketing machines. They go for vigilantes with vaginas who are shaping our generation of bad ass bitches. Like their favorite women, Bust does what it wants and it really has an eye — they’ve featured cover girls like Amy Poehler, Beth Ditto, Bjork and Charlotte Gainsbourg. So, congratulations Bust! You keep the magazine rack well-rounded. Keep reading »
I hate diets. While Americans spend billions of dollars a year making themselves miserable trying to loose some extra weight, I eat cake, wear bikinis that clearly show my stretch marks, and try to keep a healthy attitude about my appearance. Sure, sometimes my muffin top gets to me, but dieting just seems like a form of self-hatred when it involves eating pre-packaged low-cal food. Yuck!
But just like technology, Japan seems to have one up on us in the dieting category. In an article in fitness magazine, Fytte, Japanese women submitted the top 10 weight loss programs that worked for them. Much to my surprise, they actually sound fun. From #4 — Pelvis Exercises that include hula hooping — to #8 — taking a bath in scented salts for 45 minutes a day — slimming down never sounded so good! Who knows, maybe I’ll finally cave on this dieting stigma and learn to put my tummy to good use with belly dancing. [Calorie Lab]
