RIP: Legendary Feminist Punk Singer Poly Styrene Dies


This morning, we were sad to learn of the death of Poly Styrene, the infamous singer of ’70s punk band X-Ray Spex. Styrene — born Marian Joan Elliott-Said — passed away yesterday at the age of 53 after battling an aggressive form of breast cancer. Her vocal stylings as the frontwoman and songwriter for the Spex had a profound effect on punk music and the waves of girl-fronted bands that would follow. Latter day feminist musicians like Sleater Kinney’s Corin Tucker and Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hanna looked to Styrene for inspiration; at the beginning of the Spex’s breakthrough track, “Oh Bondage, Up Yours” (above), Styrene sweetly snarls, “Some people believe little girls should be seen and not heard. Oh bondage, up yours!”, encapsulating, no doubt, her marginalized position as a woman in British society, and in male-dominated punk rock specifically. Styrene’s free spirit was reflected even in her approach to the news of her terminal illness. “You remember that old song ‘Que Sera Sera, Whatever will be, will be, the future’s not ours to see’?” she told a reporter in March. “I’ve always felt that. It’s been a rollercoaster ride, but I wouldn’t change a thing.” As one fan wrote of her passing, “RIP Poly nothing plastic about her…” We couldn’t agree more. [The Guardian] Keep reading »

Behold, The Trailer For Anna Faris’ “What’s Your Number?”

Like may others on the interwebs, I am very excited for Anna Faris‘ upcoming flick, “What’s Your Number?” The movie is sort of like a female version of “High Fidelity,” and appeals to us because it’s about a woman having a hard time on the dating trail. When Anna Faris’ character reads in a magazine that 96 percent of women who’ve had sex with more than 20 guys don’t end up getting married, she freaks because, well, her number is 20. So she decides to go back and see if any of the ones she’s already boned—from Andy Samberg to Chris Pratt (Anna’s real life husband) to Joel McHale—was actually the one. The New Yorker totally spilled the beans on what happens in the end, but we’re still looking forward to it anyway. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Love It Or Leave It: Can A Person Really Change?


Can a person ever really change? Wendy Williams, host of GSN’s “Love Triangle,” is not so sure. I think for the most part, she’s right — that people change temporarily, but eventually return to their old ways. Changing or stopping that’s become a habit — whether it’s lying or cheating or smoking — requires an unwavering determination. How many of us have that kind of undeterred focus about the good things in our lives, let alone the bad things we’re trying to get rid of. That’s why you can’t love someone for who you think they can be, you have to love them for the way they are, because even though they may try and change, the chances of lasting success are slim. (Be sure to watch “Love Triangle” weeknights at 7:00 p.m. EST /6:00 p.m. CST on the Game Show Network.) Keep reading »

Heather Morris’ School Of Dance

Heather Morris, aka Brittany S. Pierce, has quickly become our favorite Gleek thanks to her awesome one-liners and killer dance moves. So when I saw that Esquire had posted a video called “How To Dance With Heather Morris,” I got kind of excited. I was picturing “Darrin’s Dance Groove” from back in the ’90s, thinking I’d get some of Heather’s patented “Single Ladies” dance steps broken down move-by-move. Instead, I got the above video of Heather shaking her groove thang in a skimpy leotard and teased-to-there hair. Hot, sure? But helpful, not so much. I think I’ll skip the humping the floor move for now. Keep reading »

This Woman Is Exercising Her Face


Sweet mother of God, what is this woman doing to her mouth with that tiny little baton-contraption?! (And what’s with the opera?) Further investigation reveals she — her name is “Victoria Looseleaf,” by the way — is demonstrating the Facial Flex Ultra, which is a “proven way to tone and condition the underlying muscles of the face, chin and neck to lift your face without surgery.” Like a Thighmaster for your mouth region, I guess? But if there’s one thing years of watching “The Real Housewives” has taught me it’s that too much smiling — and that’s what this doodad is causing Victoria’s face to do — causes wrinkles that can only be “fixed” by injecting fillers. Therefore, my non-expert opinion is that this is not a product Taylor Armstrong or Jill Zarin would approve of. No way. [Amazon, YouTube] Keep reading »

Male Student Called Out For Wearing High Heels To School


A high school boy in Tampa Bay, Florida, was asked to leave school after he wore high heels to class. No, it wasn’t because other students made fun of him (which yes, they did). It was because the school had a problem with it. As one of the student’s friends explained, “He likes the way they make him feel. They make him feel more confident, and he just likes to wear them.” But, she continued, “The first time he felt shame was when he was called out of school.” School principal Bob Heilmann said he made the decision to have the boy remove his shoes because he was afraid the student would be bullied. “As a principal of a high school, I have to take the paternal side and make sure he’s going to be okay,” he said. “Anytime anyone goes out from, quote, ‘the norm’ or anytime anyone wants to make a statement, you have to be willing to take what comes with it.” What do you think? Should boys be allowed to wear heels to school? [Fox Tampa Bay] Keep reading »
