Lady Gaga’s New Album for 99 Cents? Safe.

via Dish My Dirt

For the fearful, not wanting to jump into a daunting realm of $15 albums, Amazon has a full digital copy of Lady Gaga’s newly released Born This Way for a meager 99 cents. Check out the Daily Deal here. Even if you’ve been a little “meh” on Gaga lately, you have nothing to lose, you cheap bastard.

September’s A Long Way Away

…and a very, very long time to wait for a new episode of Modern Family. Even though it’s only been two days since the finale, we don’t blame you if you’re in MF-withdrawal. Since September’s a long time to wait, hopefully this video of Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Mitchell”) covering Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” will be able to give you a quick fix:

The Google homepage is a Pacman game today in honor of the game’s 30th birthday. Try and beat my high score… but you never will.

Never.

Designers in Front of the Camera

If there’s one thing Project Runway has taught us, it’s that designers aren’t always as attractive as their creations (see: Santino, season 2). But occasionally there comes a designer that could probably walk in their own shows and everyone would just mistake him or her for another model.

And so we have Marc Jacobs, the quiet but gorgeous designer that makes amazing clothing and has an equally as amazing face. For his new fragrance campaign, he’s  oiled up and, um, out there for all to see. But he’s not the first designer to get in on the modeling action. The equally delicious (ugh, I wish I was a gay man) Tom Ford also starred in his own fragrance campaign. Oh my bless-ed eyes!

Then there’s been Kimora Lee Simmons, etc, but do we really need pictures of them? Nah. There’s a difference between the higher art of Jacobs and Ford, and the fame-whoring of Kimora. The higher designers could sell their products without us ever seeing their faces,  but the Kimoras of the world couldn’t sell anything without their faces being plastered all over their products and ads. Here’s to seeing more of Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs’ faces… and whatever else we need to see of theirs in their ads :-).

Yeah, that’s right… a SMILEY FACE. I went there.

Retro-Embarassment

Check out this hilarious video from viral site Everything is Terrible! We love it for two reasons: 1) reminding us why 90’s fashion shouldn’t come back; and 2) making us cringe from embarassment…over the internet.

Thank You For Being a Friend (at Any Age)

Yes, it’s true that Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia, and Rose don’t exactly make most think of fashion and fornication like the names Charlotte, Carrie, Miranda, and Samantha do. However, there’s something about these South Florida retirees that has struck a chord with viewers of almost every age for the past two decades. While the show ran initially on NBC in the 80’s and early 90’s, it has settled into a nice retirement of nearly constant reruns on Lifetime. This “second life” has given the show a whole new generation of viewers. So, when Nylon posted its thoughts on a potential cast for a younger version of  The Golden Girls, it gave me an interesting idea. Since that other foursome of (sometimes) single ladies got a prequel, why can’t the Golden Girls as well?

Imagine this potential episode – “Pussycat” Sophia and her cross-dressing brother Phil pick up high school senior Dorothy from the prom, where Dorothy’s high school sweetheart, Stan, had just knocked her up. While driving Dorothy home, their car accidentally hits Rose, a tourist who is visiting New York from St. Olaf with her eight siblings in search of Bob Hope, who she believes is her biological father. Offering to help Rose find her father out of guilt, Sophia and Dorothy venture into the city to find Bob Hope. However, they instead confuse him with lookalike Curtis Hollinsworth. After a long conversation, Curtis introduces the three ladies to his daughter, Blanche, who lovingly only refers to him as “Big Daddy.” It could work, right? I guess it is a bit of a stretch…

Glee Goes GaGa

While every other show is busy wrapping up its season (or series), Glee still has a few songs to belt out before school’s out for the summer. Of those remaining, next week’s Lady Gaga-themed episode, “Theatricality,” is probably the most hotly anticipated. Revolving around introverted Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), the storyline will focus on self-expression, and culminates in Tina becoming a goth. Yeah. Keep in mind, this is the same show that recently named guest star Jonathan Groff’s character “Jesse” pretty much solely so it could use the song “Jessie’s Girl.” We never said we watched this show for the plot…

Regardless of the questionable storyline, we can’t lie about our excitement to watch “Bad Romance” and “Poker Face” as performed by McKinley High’s finest. You can download those songs from next week (and others from the rest of the season) for free here. I think it’s safe to say that as long as the show keeps up the quality of its musical numbers, Glee’s got a halo around its finger around me.
