Lauren Greenfield Tackles Fashion Week

You may recognize documentary filmmaker and photographer Lauren Greenfield’s work from Girl Culture, her photographic series that exposed what it’s like to grow up female in America, or “Thin,” her documentary on young women battling eating disorders. Now, Greenfield has taken on Fashion Week as her latest subject, seemingly using Fashion Weeks around the world as a way to examine our culture’s beauty obsession. A mix of snapshots and video footage, “Fashion Week” captures the awkward moments behind the scenes and on the runway as young women parade, and sometimes fall, in front of stony-faced onlookers, revealing the strange contradiction that is our worship of all things fashion.

I Need A Jockstrap Maid, Stat

This morning, I woke up, and I thought, what do I need out of life? And then I got on the internet, and, lo’ and behold, there it was. I need a jockstrap maid, IMMEDIATELY. Honestly, my place could use a cleaning, and I can’t imagine a better candidate to do it than some hot dude wandering around in what amounts to a padded thong. Thankfully, the Jock Strap Maid service offers lazy women like me in 40 cities across the country the opportunity to have a scantily clad hottie scrub their floor while wearing next to nada. According to jockstrap-wearing maid Nate, who needed to make some extra cash when the real estate market went south, he cleans in his underwear at home, so why not make money dusting and mopping? I, for one, am all for it. [Advocate] Keep reading »

Look Again! It’s A Hilarious Commercial For Old Spice! Now Back At Me!

Last night, while watching “Lost” (ZOMGbestepisodeever!!!), I caught this commercial for Old Spice and just about died. It’s over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek sexism and it’s hyssssterically pulled off. “I’m on a horse!” I seriously could watch this ad over and over and over and not get tired of it. “It’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love! Look again! The tickets are now diamonds!” Bwaaaaahahahahaha!!! OK. I’m done. For now. Keep reading »

Although I’m glad no one videotaped me going crazy on candy, this bunny sure makes stuffing your face look adorable.Yum-yum, gimme some — with a side of cuteness overload! Keep reading »

It’s Tuesday, so you now what that means: It’s time to check out what’s fresh off the presses this week. If you’re feeling the winter blues and need someone to reason with you, well, then this week is your Album Drop! There’s so much folk flowing it’s like Garrison Keillor curated the new releases.

Plus, the grand ole return of British pop existentialists, Field Music, and rap supah stars Freeway & Jake One have got their mind on the money. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump!

Would Ali Consider Being The Next “Bachelorette”?

On last night’s episode of “The Bachelor,” Ali Fedotowsky, who tearfully left the show last week because she was going to get fired from her job at Facebook if she didn’t go back to work, called to tell Jake Pavelka she made a mistake. However, in the 10 seconds (OK, few weeks, probably) that has passed since she bid him adieu, Jake had “fallen in love” with the three remaining women and didn’t think it was a “good idea” to let Ali come back for a second shot. Ali shed even more tears as she declared that leaving was the biggest mistake she’d ever made, and, I believe, her “performance” likely earned her the title of the next “Bachelorette.” While nothing is confirmed, Ali paid a visit to “The Ellen Show” and hinted she might be interested.

New (Fake) Law Would Ban Marriages Between People Who Don’t Love Each Other

You know what has never made sense to me? That gay people who love each other can’t get married, but two straight people who detest each other can. I mean, if anything should be banned, it’s marriage between two dolts who can’t stand each other, right? This news spoof from The Onion hilariously imagines how people would react if such a law were proposed. Keep reading »

Oprah Awkwardly Attacks Drew Brees’ Face

Oh, Oprah. Last week she invited New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees on her show. If you’ve seen him at least once sans helmet, you know that he has a birthmark by his eye. Oprah, apparently had no idea. Watch above as she says, “Who just kissed you? There’s a big old smudge right there,” and then tries to wipe it off. Awk-ward. Keep reading »

Rompers And More: Behind The Scenes At Tina Fey’s Vogue Shoot

How can anyone not love Tina Fey? She’s got the whole package: brains, beauty, talent, fame, fortune, an ability to remain sexy even while singing about ham. Just when you thought you couldn’t squeeze an ounce more of love into your heart, here comes this quick video of the comedic actress at her Vogue cover shoot. The statements in her interview might just influence the next direction of fashion: “Yeah, I’m almost 40 and I wore a romper today.” Power outfit? “Big shoulder pads, deep v-neck, hot pants, and roller skates.” No, but in all seriousness, Fey never fails to impress as you watch how professionally she poses for photographer Mario Testino, and how beautiful she looks in Prada.

Why You Should Be Listening To Ebony Bones

Now that Erykah Badu is collaborating with Mr. I’ve-Got-Nothing-Important-To-Say Lil Wayne in a cheap attempt to score profits and younger, less critical fans, I’m looking for another funky singer who isn’t afraid to bring the crazy. I was a little late “discovering” Londoner Ebony Bones, aka Ebony Thomas, as the Afro-Punk songstress has already played at SXSW, CMJ, and the last Jelly NYC Pool Party in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, not to mention a bunch of other music festivals around the globe. Yet she’s stayed true to her own sound and inspirations despite interest from major recording labels. Her debut album, Bone Idle, was released last year, but still sounds fresh in this copycat musical climate. Bones, who was also the main producer, describes the album as “schizo-sounding” and “like me, a collection of contradictions and subjects close to my heart.” She’s able to weave dance tracks, like “Don’t Fart on My Heart” and “I’m Your Future Ex Wife,” with more politically driven songs like “We Know All About You” into one cohesive project.
