Speaking of things from the ’90s having their comeuppance
, do you remember Hypercolor t-shirts? I absolutely loved them, in theory. In practice, I didn’t like that people took it as license to try to make a hand print on your stomach. I also hated how the fabric always looked a different color around the armpits. Gross! But, I am thoroughly obsessed with this nail polish, In the Mood, that changes colors depending on your body temperature. The polish comes in all sorts of color combinations
—blue and green, pink and purple, yellow and orange. If your nails are long, the polish looks like a super colorful French manicure since your nail bed is much warmer than the tips. Count me in for Guilty, the blue/purple combo. [Glamour

If you thought pole-dancing died when Miley Cyrus got on the pole, you were wrong. The true death knell is Pole Fitness For Jesus, a pole-dancing class for good Christian ladies in the sleepy town of Old Spring Town, Texas. The women in the Pole Fitness For Jesus class strut in high heels and body roll to uplifting Christian music — not because they’re trying to be sexy, mind you, but because they are honoring their body as a temple. “God gives us these bodies and they are suppose to be our temples and we are suppose to take care of them and that’s what we are doing,” explained Crystal Dean, a pole-dancing instructor, who rightfully points out that judging others for pole dancing is not very Christian. In fact, the few students in the free classes, which meets two Sundays a month, attest they feel a “spiritual connection” on the pole. Hey, whatever makes you feel closer to God — as long as you’re not hurting anybody — is fine with this Christian. Just ask yourself: what would Mary Magdalene do? [KTRK] Keep reading »
Perhaps Chris Brown
‘s anger management classes aren’t going so well. This morning, the performer and his newly blonde hair were scheduled for an interview and performance on “Good Morning America.” When Robin Roberts asked him about Rihanna
, he said, “It’s not really a big deal to me now. I think I’m past that in my life. Today is the album, so everybody go get that album.” From there, Chris supposedly stormed off the set and starting screaming in his dressing room so loudly that hair and makeup called security.
And it allegedly got way worse. Keep reading »
This season’s cast of “Dancing with the Stars
” had me totally unenthused
, but I watched the premiere last night anyway, because I care about you that much. And I was pleasantly surprised by the standout dancer of the night—Ralph Macchio of “The Karate Kid.” (No, not Jaden Smith. The original “Karate Kid” kid
.) Ralph was so charming and debonair, adopting the air of a Brat Packer as he and his partner Karina Smirnoff did the Foxtrot and earned the night’s high scRalph Macchioore of 24. The hardest part for Ralph? “I have these orangutan arms, I call them, and the first thing Karina said was, ‘When they are done right, they are done fantastic, and when they are not, they will stick out,’” he said. “So I said to myself, every time I hit, I have to just go and reach … and I did it.” Wax on, wax off indeed.
Also, can we talk about how Ralph is 49? Dude is such a baby face. [EW] Keep reading »
I love Rachel Maddow as much as the next bi-curious liberal with a cable subscription. But still, I can’t compete with this guy. Country musician Marc Black penned “I Love You Rachel Maddow,” an ode to his favorite MSNBC host, her hair, and the way she stands up to Pat Buchanan. Hopefully Maddow is flattered and doesn’t think Marc is a stalker. But even if he is … hey, it’s pretty catchy! [YouTube via After Ellen] Keep reading »
Behold, the trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” The rest of the interwebs is excited about it because Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz seem to have a love/hate flirtation going on as they search for the fountain of youth, even though Johnny has said Jack Sparrow is gay. I am excited about it because … it’s a mermaid movie! A genre that should be much more common. Keep reading »
