This morning on “Today,” Matt, Meredith, and Al (do they even need last names anymore?) were introducing a segment about kids running around naked during the summertime. Meredith asked, “At what age does it become inappropriate?” and Matt, pausing to think for a sec, responded, “Sixteen?” Eww? Clip of the awkies moment above! Keep reading »
Last night on “So You Think You Can Dance,” Katie Holmes — yes, Mrs. Tom Cruise — performed a dance routine as an homage to Judy Garland and also to promote The Dizzy Feet Foundation, which provides art scholarships to children and teens. The charity is cool, the performance was meh. She looked fabulous and I think she does have a real presence on stage, but her dancing is only OK and her lip-syncing was, uh, off at times. Check it out above. Keep reading »
- Angelina Jolie went to Iraq today for a day trip, visiting displaced families in Baghdad. [CNN] — Angie hoped her trip would bring attention to the issues facing displaced Iraqi families.
- Kendra Wilkinson has been working on a memoir that will hit stores next summer. The book will focus on Wilkinson’s childhood, Playboy years, and newlywed life. [Us Weekly] — Because what else would she have to discuss?
- Some Japanese men are starting a new dating trend: 2-D relationships. These dudes say they’ve fallen in love with their video game avatars, and some carry around picture or doll versions of the animated ladies to keep them company. [Jezebel] — While this form of dating is a great way to avoid rejection, it’s also weird and pathetic.
In a desperate attempt to make World of Warcraft more socially acceptable, the advertisers for this geeky game started using celebs like William Shatner, Mr. T, Ozzy Osbourne, and Vern Troyer to promote it. The weird part is that this strategy has sort of worked. Keep reading »
I’m so glad that President Obama decided to comment on this story, because it got me all riled up. Earlier this week, super-professor Henry Louis Gates lost his keys, and had to break into his own house. A neighbor phoned the police, saying that “two black males” were on the mansion’s porch, trying to get in. When the police arrived to check out the report, Gates was already inside. He showed his ID to prove that it was, in fact, his house. Things got heated from there. The officer kept asking questions, to which Gates responded, “Why? Because I’m a black man in America?” He was arrested for disorderly conduct. Luckily, the charges have been dropped. Yesterday, Obama defended his friend, saying that the officers acted “stupidly.” He even cracks a joke, wondering what would happen if he was caught trying to break into the back door of the White House.

I love going to City Council meetings. No, not because I’m so interested in the politics and voting. I go because the open-mic policy means that there’s always some raving lunatic going on and on about something. Like this young woman in Santa Cruz, California, where Amelia went to school. (Coincidence?) What exactly is she trying to say? She wants healthy pesticides? And people can “make things cars?” And, apparently, she thinks we here on the East Coast are still in the Civil War era — because we have slaves? And the West Coast is for the Union? Also, growing food is free? And you can put things in the freezer, and they last forever? Trust me, just watch. It’s that good. Keep reading »
Okay, so this is never the way I feel when I have my period, regardless of what menstrual product I’m using. But I gotta give Tampax credit for this super cute commercial. Keep reading »
Did you ever think that Britney Spears could save anybody’s life? Not so much, unless we’re talking about deflecting a bullet with a swinging umbrella or walking barefoot in the bathroom and soaking up all the germs so that they don’t invade another’s body. But according to a new BBC documentary called “Britney Spears Saved My Life,” Britney’s been the savior for lots of folks. Keep reading »
Those of you who’ve seen “American Psycho” will remember the prostitute from the famous Patrick-Bateman-going-bats**it-crazy-with-a-chainsaw scene. Poor girl ended up bloodied and dead at the hands of her psychotic john and his amazing chainsaw-throwing precision. And now Lydia Hearst, publishing heiress and wannabe supermodel, is helping us relive those beautiful moments all over again in Miles Fisher’s new cover of the Talking Heads classic “This Must Be the Place.”
In this truly creepy “American Psycho” homage, Fisher plays Patrick Bateman surprisingly well; Hearst looks confused, pouty and quite a lot like the not-so-cute hooker she’s meant to be playing. Oh, and there’s a decent amount of axe-wielding action for The Frisky contingent that gets off on blood. Check out the video after the jump and tell us: cool or creepy? Keep reading »
North Carolina does not like A-holes … or B-holes. Several NC media companies have their panties in a twist over a new Hardee’s ad and are refusing to run the hilarious/suggestive ad which asks whether people prefer the taste of A-holes or B-holes. But get your mind out of the butt-er. (Ha!) I’m talkin’ about doughnut holes. The ad pits regular doughnut holes (A-holes) against Hardee’s new Biscuit holes with icing (B-holes) in a random taste test. The results: “A-holes are too small,” says one man. “I’m just a B-hole kind of guy.” [News & Observer] Keep reading »
