“Rude Boy” Robot Squirts On Rihanna’s Face At ECHO Awards

Rihanna performed her latest single, “Rude Boy,” at the ECHO Awards in Berlin last night. And I’m not sure which was worse, her mediocre singing, dancing, and prancing on stage, or the sexual innuendos between her and the two “District 9″ prawn-looking robots. I really expected some great entertainment when I saw her whining in the beginning, but I was just bored. I will give it to her for the realistic animatronic robots that must have cost a pretty penny, though. Keep reading »

10-Minute Hostess Gift: Cookies In A Jar

Lately, my group of friends has gotten really into home entertaining. Call it an effect of the recession if you please, but we’re hosting potlucks, game nights, and movie screenings at out apartments like it’s nobody’s business. This means I regularly pop into corner stores on my way to the host’s house to pick up some cheap flowers, a six-pack, or dessert to contribute to the evening. These offerings aren’t exactly original, so I pulled something out of my mother’s arsenal the other night: cookies in a jar. “Make” oatmeal — or another variety — of cookies by following my video primer. Here’s the recipe I used: Country Oatmeal Cookie In A Jar (I left out the chocolate chips and walnuts). Keep reading for links to other varieties! Keep reading »

This Is The Geekiest (And Cutest) Wedding Invite Ever


A very geeky bride and groom recently made a video game-inspired wedding invitation. To see the deets on the couple’s big day, friends and family have to get through two levels of the game, which looks a lot like Super Mario meets Donkey Kong. Unique wedding invites are pretty sweet. I just hope they sent backups for the less tech-savvy members of the family. Grandma will be none too happy if a big, gray ape keeps her from witnessing the “I dos.” Keep reading »

What Do You Think Of This 8-Year-Old Lady Gaga?


Personally, I’m a little freaked out by this Argentinean 8-year old’s Lady Gaga impression. Granted, it’s pretty good but she just looks too … wrong. Perhaps her parents should wait until she’s at least old enough to drive before covering her face with makeup and putting her scantily clad body up on stage to gyrate and crawl around while singing “Bad Romance” and “Paparazzi.” Obviously, the people on this show don’t agree with me. Maybe I’m being a little too uptight. What do you think? Keep reading »

Men Explain Birth Control!

Blogger Amanda Hess of The Sexist took her video camera around D.C. and asked a bunch of dudes to explain how different types of women-controlled birth control work, including the Pill, the patch, diaphragms, and Nuva-ring. Some guys get an A+ for looking adorable while trying … while others don’t know what the eff they’re talking about. (Like the guy who says the birth control pill is the same thing as emergency contraception. No sex for you until you straighten that one out, bucko!) And an A++ for the guy wearing flannel and glasses who uses the phrase “sexual congress” with a straight face. Whoever he’s schtupping is a lucky woman.

Hey, dudes who read The Frisky, can you do any better? (And no looking up the answers on other web sites and cheating.) [The Sexist] Keep reading »

Why I’m Voting For “American Idol” Contestant Crystal Bowersox

The ladyfolk really redeemed themselves last night on “American Idol.” I was impressed by Lilly Cole’s rendition of “A Change Is Gonna Come.” I was moved by Katelyn Epperly’s crooning version of Coldplay’s “The Scientist.” And I am still a fan of resident oddball, Siobahn Magnus, who devoured Aretha Franklin’s “Freedom.” But there is one contestant I am totally in awe of … Crystal Bowersox. As many of you know, the men and women switched nights this week because Crystal was severely ill in the hospital. They didn’t tell us why, but it sounded very serious. All she said was, “I’m a tough cookie.” Food poisoning? A heart condition? Cancer? Keep reading »

Tonight: “Half The Sky,” NYT Columnist Nicholas Kristof’s Film About Women’s Rights

We haven’t read Half The Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity For Women Worldwide yet because we’re lazy, though we’ve heard glowing reviews about the book by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof and his wife, Sheryl Wu Dunn. Fortunately, tonight is a one-night-only film screening of a special “Half The Sky” event at hundreds of movie theaters in the United States and Canada. (You can find a PDF of all theaters showing the film here.) The film, which plays everywhere at 7:30 p.m. local time, explores major problems facing women worldwide, including sex trafficking, violence against women, and maternal mortality. India.Arie performs music in the film and actress Marisa Tomei will be premiering a short film she co-directed, based on a true story, about a teenager from a small village in Ethiopia who overcomes sexual violence. “Half The Sky” will surely be a heavy film — but then again, this is half the world’s population we’re talking about.

Jessica Simpson Discusses John Mayer And That “Mom Jeans” Fiasco With Oprah


On yesterday’s episode of “Oprah,” Jessica Simpson responded for the first time to John Mayer‘s blabbermouth statement to Playboy — that she’s like crack in the sack. He, for the record, apologized to her in writing (email or text, we wonder) and she has not and doesn’t plan on accepting it. Good for her! After all the rumors about Jessica still pining away for Mayer, it’s nice to see her standing up for herself, but also seeming disinterested in his smarmy ass. Keep reading »
