I know I’m a few days late to the party, but the other night I saw a rerun of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” where she visited Steven Tyler at his Sunapee, New Hampshire home. The interview was chock full of redonkulous moments — like when he takes Oprah to visit the sacred place where he discovered his spirituality and they listen to the stillness. Or the moment he removes his socks to reveal his severely mangled feet. Yes, he is wearing a toe condom. And yes, he continues to play with it casually, while he answers O’s probing questions. These are just the hazards of being a rock star, I suppose — having feet that look like hooves. But this is nothing. The most incredible moment of incredible moments, is when Steven talks about conceiving his four children. “When we made love we cried — and after that we had a kid,” he says. WHATTTTTT? Did I hear him correctly? Steven believes that tears shed during sex signifies the conception of a baby? Please tell me I misunderstood him. Please. Whatever the hell that crazy coot meant, I think it’s safe to say that Oprah’s baaaccckkk.
You know, sometimes your dad gets gay married late in life, and you definitely are gonna want to be there. This Renault ad — for their stupidly named Twingo car — shows just how you’ll get there. [YouTube]
When I heard yesterday that New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie made a blowjob joke while campaigning for Mitt Romney, I thought it just sounded, at worst, crude. (And embarrassing for Romney’s squeaky-clean Mormon image, although that’s another story.) Christie was rallying for Romney at a campaign stop in Exeter, New Hampshire, when some women started chanting about jobs going down. After a few distracting chants, Christie says, “You know, something may go down tonight but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart.” Keep reading »
If you’re not already a fan of Melissa Harris-Perry, you will be soon: she’s a Tulane University political science professor who appears often on “The Rachel Maddow Show” and just scored her own show on MSNBC. Last night she went head-to-head with another talking head, the inimitable Stephen Colbert, while promoting her new book, Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes and Black Women In America. As was to be expected, Stephen is not too keen on talking about this “race” thing. or stereotypes experienced by black women. I dare you not to snicker a little when he asks, “Of these stereotypes, which one are you?” This is Stephen Colbert and Melissa Harris-Perry at their best. [Colbert Nation]
In this clip from Vogue Italia, the mag imagines what might happen if QVC were to go really, really ridiculously upscale. The video is a companion piece to Vogue Italia’s January cover, shot by Stephen Meisel, and features models Joan Small, Karlie Kloss, Natasha Poly and Caroline Trentin decked in collections from Chanel, Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Versace, among others. This quirky little clip shows that high fashion might (gasp!) actually have a sense of humor. And oh, the clothes are absolutely stunning. [Vogue Italia]
