Despite Twitter CEO Dick Costolo‘s best efforts to convince us that the company’s all-male, all-white board (and mostly all-male management team) isn’t an issue, this flier appeared in the women’s restroom at the Twitter’s offices in San Francisco today. Engineering Manager Jill Wetzler tweeted, what is most likely an invitation for some kind of Oktoberfest happy hour, with the caption: “Seen on a sign in the @twoffice. In the women’s bathroom no less. Think this is directed at me? #facepalm.” As Alanis Morissette would say, “Isn’t it ironic?” [Business Insider]
We already know teenage pop fandom to be crazy, particularly in the contemporary cases of Beliebers and Directioners, but is it this crazy? Now, full disclaimer: nobody seems to know if this is real, but if it is … there may very well be no hope for the human race. Hardcore Belieber and Twitter enthusiast @cantbeliebit tweeted the following photo and message out to her 190,000-plus followers on Monday: Keep reading »
Birthdays in the Carey-Cannon house sure are a lot of fun. There’s cake, party hats, and sharing your breasts with all of Twitter! In celebration of Nick Cannon’s 33rd birthday today, wifey Mariah tweeted a picture of her black bra-clad breasts underneath an unbuttoned shirt, her face seductively turned off to one side. Sure beats a new set of golf clubs, huh, Nick?
These two are so cute it’s almost nauseating (almost — hey, at least someone in Hollywood is still in love!). But I really feel bad for their twins Monroe and Morroccan when they get older. You know Nick and Mariah are going to be the ones whose kids are constantly going, “Ew, MOM AND DAD, GROSS!” [TooFab]
I haven’t seen “Gravity” yet, but I’m eager to, as I love movies about space and the reviews have, for the most part, been really, really good. But one person wasn’t necessarily so impressed with the accuracy of Alfonso Cuaron’s cinematic vision — renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson tweeted up a storm after seeing the film last night, hilariously pointing out some of the movie’s flaws from a, you know, scientific perspective. See some of my favorites (beware of potential spoilers!) after the jump! Keep reading »
“The Osbournes” pioneered the family-centric reality TV format, and I personally believe that the entire genre should have just quit while it was ahead. The Kardashians are good for whatever it is that they’re good for, but nothing will ever compare to Ozzy’s aimless bumbling, Sharon’s loving shrillness, Kelly and Jack, teenage Jack’s oft-berated Australian nanny Melinda, all those dogs … there will always be a special place in my heart for that show, and the people in it. Jack was one of my first Weird Celebrity Crushes, a condition I suffer from to this day. He hasn’t had it easy the past couple of years — he was diagnosed with MS in 2012, and his wife Lisa miscarried late in her second pregnancy just a couple of months ago — but he obviously still has reason to smile. Jack threw a baby wig and a pair of Ozzy’s signature glasses on his 16-month-old daughter, Pearl, and the results are strategically formulated to KILL ME DEAD. So cute!!! [Twitter]
This week Emmy Rossum tweeted about a really AWKWARD run-in with her gynecologist. The uncomfie part, in my opinion, was not running into the person who has an intimate relationship with her cervix, but not recognizing him. This begs the question: what was she doing last time she got a pap smear that she didn’t remember the man in her vagina? [Huffington Post]
“Sex and the City” is one of the many shows I have a love-hate relationship with. In the beginning it was a groundbreaking show for portraying women in their thirties as single (without judging them to be spinsters), being frank about the fact that women enjoyed sex and for showing each to be independent and successful. Then it sort of became shoe porn and harder to understand why Carrie was obsessed with Big, a guy who seemed pretty indifferent and outright mean to her. Oh, well.
No matter how much hate I have for the show, I have a lot of love for it and will probably always watch the TV series or movie with glee if it is put in front of my face. With great love and admiration comes great parody. The “Sex and the City” 3-quel twitter perfectly captures Carrie’s not-so-clever, on the nose, voice overs in a way only a fan could. You would have had to have watched quite a few seasons to get Bradshaw’s naive, pun-y musings about romance in the big city down so well. Read more on College Candy…
