I just read a New York Times article about fashionistas purposely having chipped nails... Here's a short excerpt.
"PITY the mothers and grandmothers. Visible bra straps, glaringly obvious roots — these are but a few of the grooming no-nos that have become yes-yeses in recent years. Now there is another stylistic tic that would have been unthinkable on a proper lady in your Aunt Beatrice’s day.
Over the last few years — since the era of the skull print scarf, let’s say, or the (metaphorical) rise of the Olsen twins — having streaked, chipped or just plain grotty nail polish no longer suggests drug addiction, manual labor or pure laziness. Like untied high-tops, thread-worn jeans and bedhead, it’s now part of a deliberate look. And chipped polish is not sported solely by nail-biting school students and downtown punkers. It has been spotted uptown, in professional settings and gala parties, behind department store sales counters and even (gasp!) on beauty and fashion industry insiders."
Apparently, before, when nail polish was chipped you absolutely had to run and get it fixed,” said Ji Baek, the owner of Rescue Beauty Lounge and who has noticed the Olsens and Lindsay Lohan with less-than-impeccable polish. Now, clients like hers are “wearing perfectly-tailored clothes, they have $5,000 bags and equally fabulous shoes, but their nails are chipped and they’re saying, ‘I don’t care.’ They don’t want to be too perfect.”
That's just part of the article, but you get the idea! While I appreciate how much easier it is to let a manicure go a few days (trust me, I do), doesn't this just feel like an excuse to be lazy? Yeah, why be TOO PERFECT?
To preface this blog, I've seen "alternative" wedding dances before - and for the most part, if the couple can dance well, then it's great. It's entertaining and fun. A bit non-traditional, but whatever. HOWEVER, when you're just going to jump around AIMLESSLY and lose your breath in the middle of a 6 MINUTE routine (WHY SO LONG??), then you should probably just do the spin and smile. With that being said, watch it and tell me what you think...
Mariah Carey threw out the opening pitch at the Yomiuri Giants vs Rakuten Eagles match at the Tokyo Dome yesterday, and let's just say it was the most impressive display of baseball I've ever seen in my life. Lord knows why she became a singer and not a professional pitcher.
Seriously though, you'd think she would've prepared a little before showing up. It's like instead of practicing throwing balls, she decided to just break both her arms to make sure they wouldn't function correctly. She could've dropped the ball and sort of nudged it with her foot and it would've been just as impressive. And that cloying smile afterwards - like hee,hee KILLS me.
Dior was one of the first international brands to enter China and has won the affection and respect of the consuming public. We absolutely do not support any remark that hurts the Chinese people's feelings. We express our sorrow over the compatriots who lost their lives in the earthquake in Wenchuan, Sichuan, and we extend our sympathy and condolences to the people in the disaster area." Stone has also done her mea culpas. She was quoted by the Beijing News, "In the course of the interview I made inappropriate remarks and for any harm created towards the Chinese people I am extremely sad and apologize."TOO LATE. I guess it doesn't pay to hurt 1 BILLION people's feelings.
HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA... Sorry for all of the videos, but seriously this is AWESOME. I love it. This is just like the old people playing the characters on the Hills re-makes. Except here, for Flex and the City, Heavy replaced Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis with body builders to reenact favorite scenes from th Sex and the City- the EXACT same scene with the SAME dialogue. No soft lighting needed here: Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte are sinewy, sexy and can bench press at least 450 pounds.
More Info (if you're actually interested): This year, to honor Playboy's 55th anniversary, Holly Madison is heading up a search for a very special playmate and thinks it might be YOU!

The top ladies will win a paid trip to Los Angeles and real Playmate test shoot under the guidance of Holly Madison. Submit your video today!
FINALLY, a song by Jessica Simpson that seems OK. Given the HUGE success of her blonde peers (Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, and even Kellie Pickler)in the country foray, Jessica is finally taking a stab at it and "getting back to her roots." That should be read to say her label is TIRED of her TRIED pop attempts and if this doesn't work, she should hope that she invested wisely.
So cute, right? Personalize it with your invitation. $120.... I've got others, but do you really care? If so, e-mail me!

This is the car stereo salesman at Best Buy doing his best to pawn a new car stereo off on some chicks. Here's the deal- The girls just start dancing to some song on one of the radios, and dude decides to show them what he's made of (spoiler: he's made entirely out of awesome dance moves).
Montgomery was consumed by his marathon online chats with Jessi. While at work, he didn't stop talking about her, telling colleagues that he planned to leave his wife and move to West Virginia. In the evening, he would chase his daughters off the computer, planting himself in front of the screen late into the night.At some point, Montgomery's wife, Cindy, discovered some of the items Jessi had sent. "I cannot believe is that you are living out some bizarre fantasy — as father and son," she wrote in a note to her husband. Cindy also wrote a letter to Jessi, enclosing a family photo and explaining that there was no "Tommy," only a 45-year-old man, his fantasies, his wife and two daughters (ages 14 and 16).

This story is so sad. Melissa Barton, a Port St. Lucie, Fla., mother is (rightfully) outraged and considering legal action after her son's kindergarten teacher led his classmates to vote him out of class. Barton says Morningside Elementary teacher Wendy Portillo had her son's classmates say what they didn't like about 5-year-old Alex. She says the teacher then had the students vote, and voted Alex, who is being evaluated for Asperger's syndrome -- an autism spectrum disorder -- out of the class by a 14-2 margin.
Click on the video below to watch the interview, it's terribly sad if it's real.
Sharon Stone gave an interview while on the red carpet at Cannes this weekend in which -- after recounting all of China's atrocities -- she wondered, "All these earthquake and stuff happened and I thought, 'Is that karma?' When you are not nice that bad things happen to you." Sharon went on to say she has come around and no longer thinks the death of over 60,000 people is cosmic payback...because the Tibetan people told her it's ok.

I posted Fergie's "painted on" pants the other day, but had never actually seen the performance or knew that the audience outside The Today Show that morning was apparently an elementary school. Knowing this, I guess Fergie thought it would be a good idea to flail around in those skin tight leather pants and hump the stage. As a special treat for the smaller kids, she also pretended to go down on her guitar player. It's just like an episode of Barney except with way more inappropriate sexual tension. What fun!
Note: Be sure to check out what happens at :28 - :32. Uncomfortable? Oh my, heavens no! And "Sock It To Me"... there must be some kind of filter.
"It's kind of hilarious! I've never fit into an E-cup before," she tells Us. "I look at my husband and go, 'Guess what size this bra is?' And when I tell him, he's just amazed. We keep the tags that prove it, to look back for memory's sake!"
Lesson of the Day: Book now before oil goes up to $150/barrel.

I posted the "informative" PSA by Kim Kardashian a few days ago and needless to say, I wrote it off, because frankly, I can't take Kim Kardashian seriously. However, I came across this PSA featuring Harrison Ford... I would say equally "interesting". Just so I'm clear- does he get his chest waxed to stop deforestation? Who thought of this analogy?? Whatever, I'm still seeing Indiana Jones!

Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty made a YouTube video together that can only be described as "WHAT THE DOUBLE FUCK?!" It's essentially the two of them playing with, no joke, newborn mice and babbling incoherently. Though at one point, Amy uses them to deliver a message to her incarcerated husband Blake and says, "This one's [newborn mouse] got a message from Blake," she says. "Blake, please don't divorce mummy. She loves you ever so. Hang on, my big brother wants to say something."
Taking another mouse from Doherty, she continues: "Yeah, if you divorce her you'll have me to deal with. I'm only a day old. I don't know what I'm doing but I know what love is." If Pete Doherty, drugs and baby mice can't save a marriage, then, shit, I don't know what can. Maybe Amy should try food, I heard food can be quite comforting.
