Date: October 29, 2010 | Posted By: Stacey
Okay, I’m a bit late to the game, but I just couldn’t let this Sesame Street treat slide. You may have already seen the awesome video below, starring a brown Muppet who really, really loves her hair. Whether it’s twisted, braided, cornrowed, in an afro, up, down, etc., this little girl seriously loves what she’s Continue reading


SPARK starts a movement but Snooki steals the media spotlight

Date: October 27, 2010 | Posted By: Stacey
Once you go Gloria, you never go back. Steinem, that is. I’ve always been aware that our culture seriously and routinely shortchanges females, but heading back to San Francisco from the first annual SPARK Summit (Sexualization Protest: Action, Resistance, Knowledge) in New York City drove the point home like never before. Just the previous night, Continue reading


“Glee” stars get very adult on the cover of GQ

Date: October 22, 2010 | Posted By: Stacey
Great going, Glee. Though Britney Spears made it clear long ago that schoolgirl fetishism is alive and well, I expected more from the stars of Fox’s beloved musical dramedy. In case you haven’t heard (or rather, seen), Glee‘s Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, and Cory Monteith posed provocatively for the issue of GQ on stands now, Continue reading


Perez Hilton says he’ll stop bullying celebrities – do you believe him?

Date: October 15, 2010 | Posted By: Stacey
I generally feel like kicking Perez Hilton in the groin. This is not to say I condone violence or approve of crotchal assault, but let’s face it, the guy has earned a reputation for being a jerk. The number one cesspool of celebrity trash-talk, Perez’s blog often rips stars apart regarding their weight, clothing, relationships, Continue reading

Teri Hatcher shows Oprah what aging looks like, sans Botox

Date: October 6, 2010 | Posted By: Stacey
Teri Hatcher can move her forehead, and that’s awesome. Not only does her un-Botoxed face effectively express a range of emotions, but the actress is also the proud owner of some pretty prominent under-eye circles too. She snaps pictures of herself, sans makeup, sporting a giant grin, to post on Facebook. Before professional stylists get Continue reading


Tracy Anderson prescribes baby food and DNA-defying workouts

Date: September 30, 2010 | Posted By: Stacey
Quit your whining and eat some baby food! Okay, okay, so that’s not exactly what celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson is telling her clientele. But it’s pretty close, according to numerous reports. Perhaps you read one of the various articles recently, claiming Tracy’s famous trainees (Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow are just a few of the names Continue reading


Advertisers want you to eat baby carrots like junk food

Date: September 28, 2010 | Posted By: Stacey
Remember the good ol’ days when baby carrots were just wholesome snacks, packed with nutrients? Consider those days gone. That baby carrot you once knew and loved has copped an attitude. It’s roughed up its image, started hanging with a bad crowd, and I think it might have just given you the finger. Yes, that’s Continue reading


Levi’s ass-inine idea of equality

Date: September 23, 2010 | Posted By: Stacey
ASS. Got your attention, didn’t I? I’m guessing Levi’s was pretty proud of the final tagline for their new Curve ID jeans: “All asses were not created equal.” Nothing makes you do a double-take like the blatant use of “ass” in advertising, right? But I digress. The real story behind the company’s latest ad campaign Continue reading
