“A princess should be sexy. She is young, she is beautiful – I would like to create something special for her, but nothing too bold. I would like to prove to the world that Roberto Cavalli can dress a princess. Maybe I would use a print, keeping it young, sophisticated and sexy. Just because you are queen or princess it doesn’t mean you can’t be sexy.”
– Cinderella, watch out. If Robert Cavalli was your fairy godmother, that beautiful blue ball gown would have been a cleavage-bearing bandage dress. As if our dear Duchess of Cambridge didn’t have enough to worry about (it’s not like the heir to the royal throne is growing inside her or anything), she now has to be a “sexy,” according to Cavalli.

Yesterday, Lindsay Lohan tweeted out “It’s official. Pregnant” in what was intended to be an April Fools’ Day joke. The only problem? This being Lindsay Lohan, she tweeted it at 12:35 am, a full five minutes after the day was over, prompting concerned fans and media from around the world to collectively gasp in horror. The British press in particular initially reported the story as true, until they realized that Lohan was likely pulling a prank. (Phew!) I’m sure her boyfriend, Avi Snow, of the band City of the Sun, loved that. (Unrelated: Does anybody else pine for the simple days of Lohan’s relationship with Sam Ronson? Because I do.)
To add insult to fake baby injury, Lohan was photographed this week slumped under a table in Brazil. She’s supposed to report for rehab (one where allegedly she’ll be allowed to continue to take Adderall, ha!) this week. [The Independent]
“Acting is secondary—I don’t feel like it’s going to stick around because it’s not something I want to do forever. My art has always been my top priority and I have far more experience in that field than I do in film. It’s hard to explain without sounding like a dick. I’m not that person. I’m really grateful for such enjoyable work, I just don’t feel as though I have any clout as an actor. I haven’t earned it, and I don’t intend to.”

I’ve had a couple false alarms when my period has been poky and I’ve been freaked for a few days that I might be pregnant. So it boggles my mind that there are women on this Earth that do not know they are pregnant until their baby is basically crowning.
Take, for instance, the British soldier who gave birth at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan after not realizing she was pregnant for seven/eight months. The Fiji-born woman, who is being kept anonymous, was deployed to the Afghan frontlines in March as a gunner in the Royal Artillery and gave birth unexpectedly to a five-weeks premature baby earlier this week. The soldier did not realize she was pregnant until she started having terrible stomach cramps, which turned out to be contraction associated with childbirth. Keep reading »
Smoking while pregnant isn’t defensible.
But you know what else isn’t defensible? Pointing a gun at a pregnant woman. Keep reading »
No, that’s not the world’s creepiest ice cube — it’s “Shape Of An Angel,” a 3D ultrasound. An MRI scans your fetus and a tiny replica is printed out in a 3D printer, hovering midair in clear resin and encased in a jewelry box. (Because why not display your 3D fetus to guests inside a jewelry box?) Oh, and the whole thing will set you back $1,230.
Growing life is beautiful, yes, but a tiny plastic fetal token strikes me as raising the fetus to the level of fetish object. I hope this doesn’t take off, because looking at ultrasounds just got that much more uncomfortable! [Geekosystem]
