The Rumor Mill: More Topshops In The New York Area!?

Swirling, unsubstantiated rumor has it that British mega-brand and recent New York immigrant Topshop–yes, the place to whence our collective wages go–will be setting up shop in Brooklyn next year. While we’re all excited for the Brooklynites who’d no longer have to cross the bridge for Topshop’s particular brand of decently-priced designer knockoffs inspired pieces, there are a few other places we’d rather see the chain open. Like, in lots of other cities across the nation. And right next door to our offices. Or, you know, in the same building. Who do we talk to about setting that up? [Papier Blog] Keep reading »

The Michael Jackson Rumor Mill

Michael Jackson is the King of Pop, but he could also be dubbed the King of Crazytown Rumors. With all the hoopla taking place in Los Angeles right now over his memorial service, I thought it would be nice to look back at some of the most “Off The Wall” allegations about the singer. From accusations of him sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber to trying to buy the Elephant Man’s skull, below are five outrageous rumors spread about Jacko that were really wacko.

“Obama Is Gay!” Plus 10 Other Tabloid Lies

ZOMG! Did you hear?! President Obama is GAY! According to The Globe, that is. Tabloids sell amazing lies that millions of people buy. While it would have been doubly empowering for America to not only elect its first African-American, but also its first openly homosexual President, these rumors are just fun fantasies good for a laugh — which we could all use right about now. Guess that’s why The National Enquirer is America’s best selling weekly “newspaper.” Here are our favorite outrageously LOL rag-mag cover stories…

Audrina went on Ellen and said that when she called Lauren to talk to her about it, Lauren hung up on her. She also said Justin hasn’t confirmed or denied that it happened.

    Listen Up, Tabloids: Leave Jennifer Aniston Alone!

    Brangelina just had twins and the magazine covers of OK! and Star are at it again, claiming that Brad’s ex, Jennifer Aniston, is desperate to not be far behind on the procreation bandwagon. While Aniston’s rep denied the rumor today, we still find the story to be pretty messed up. First of all, Jennifer went from being America’s Sweetheart to America’s #1 Cougar in the span of just a few years. And sure, she’s headed straight for the big 4-0, but we didn’t see anyone flinch when 50-something bachelor George Clooney went monogamous with Sarah Larson a few months ago (albeit just for a bit). No one was putting him on the cover of their trash mag claiming he wanted to settle down and spawn. Not every lady’s biological clock is ticking.
