Gaga Gives Cosmo Readers Love Advice

March 17, 2010 Hollywoody, News No Comments

I had a boyfriend who told me I would never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail,” the 24-year-old award-winning pop icon tells readers in Cosmo‘s April issue (we read Cosmo so you don’t have to — see how much we love you guys?).

Gaga did not dump the imbecile on the spot. But she did threaten him: “Someday when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me.”

As Christine Spines notes in the article, most women say dumb things like that to assholes we’re dating.

But Gaga made it happen.

There’s something in that. That something is called dedication. Gaga is entirely devoted to her career.

“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams,” Gaga says. “If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore.”

Tiger’s Out And About

February 7, 2010 Hollywoody, News No Comments

Cheater du jour Tiger Woods has left the sex rehab center in Mississippi and been reunited with his wife and two children, according to RadarOnline.

Wood’s wife, Elin Nordegren, has dropped her divorce lawyer and while she’s still not wearing her wedding band, rumor has it she’s committed to working on her marriage for the sake of their children.

If you recall, the golfer was caught having an affair last year. Since then, 19 women have been romantically linked to him, many of them stepping forward with gory deets about their canoodlings.

Is there life after infidelity? We’ll have to see.

Between Escort and Endorsement

February 3, 2010 Hollywoody, News No Comments

For the past 19 years and much to the distaste of Austria’s polite society, Richard Lugner has paid for celebrity dates to the Vienna Opera Ball. The dates — everyone from Sophia Loren to Paris Hilton to Dita Von Teese — are paid $150,000 to sign autographs at one of his malls, attend the ball with him, ruffle some feathers and generally allow themselves to become profile-boosting tabloid fodder for the 77-year-old billionaire.

This year, Lugner is taking Lindsay Lohan, whose handlers have apparently been making it hell on earth for Lugner’s people. Lohan is not allowed to see a drop of alcohol while she’s out with the businessman, his 20-year-old girlfriend, his 16-year-old daughter and his daughter’s boyfriend.

No funny business is expected from the stars, we’re assured.

Tila Tequila Loves The Ladies

January 30, 2010 Hollywoody, News 1 Comment

Proof positive that you can be a sleazy douchebag even if you’re a cute chick, we present to you Tila Tequila, the Singapore-born MySpace sensation, reality TV favorite and tabloid fodder:

All righty, then. Mind you, we love Tila, but, really?

John Mayer’s Ideal: A Beautiful Mind and A Beautiful Vagina

January 24, 2010 Hollywoody, News No Comments

John Mayer. I didn’t realize what an emo weirdo he was until recently. I went nuts for him immediately, obviously. Forget tall and handsome, I like them dark as my own tangled heart.

So this month, he’s on Rolling Stone, right, positively gushing with overshares.

The 32-year-old musician and former beau to Jennifer Aniston isn’t over their early-2009 break-up.

The entire thing’s left him “too freaked out” to try to go on looking for a partner — not because Aniston’s insane and ruined him for all other women with her neuroses, no, she’s “fucking fantastic.”

He’s the asshole. He ended things because their relationship didn’t “arc over the horizon.”

Ah, to be dumped with such poetry.

But Mayer is having a heard time getting back in the game. He just doesn’t have the energy to convince the women of the unwashed masses that he’s really interested.

“I can’t fathom explaining myself to somebody who can’t believe I’d be interested in them, and they’re going, ‘But you’re John Mayer!’” he said. “I’m going backwards to move forward. I’m too freaked out to meet anybody else. I’ll be happy when I close out this life-partner thing. Think of how much mental capacity I’m using to meet the right person so I can stop giving a fuck about it.”

So essentially, he’s raiding his little black book right now. Sorry, ladies.

“Do you think it’s going to take meeting someone who I admire more than I admire myself?” he asked rhetorically during the interview.

Who might he admire more than he admires himself?

An intellectual equal who also possesses “a beautiful vagina.”

There you have it, ladies. The key to this man’s heart.

Go seduce him on Twitter! Here, you might need this. Yes, I know he’s not a chick. Work with me people.

Brangelina–OVER?! N0WAI.

January 23, 2010 Hollywoody, News No Comments

There is no sex scandal here. It’s just two outrageously sexy people whose movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith holds a delicious little place in our gun-totting hearts here at Sex and the 405.

According to the Times Online, the sexiest couple alive is parting ways. The couple who is unmarried (having said they wouldn’t until gay marriage became legal in the U.S.), have signed papers dealing with the custody of their six children. According to the Herald Sun, the children will live with Jolie.

The Herald Sun gets their info from the Times, which gets their info from the News of the World newspaper.

Brangelina’s people aren’t saying anything other than anything relating to a split is a “private matter.”

Call me a hopeless Angelino, but I’m not buying this until I see it on TMZ.

Lindsay Lohan Sex Tape (NSFW)

January 20, 2010 Hollywoody, News, Sex Tape No Comments

It’s been five days and we have still heard nothing on that story of a supposed Lindsay Lohan sex tape. Needless to say, we’re crushed. As some of you may know, our editor here at Sex and the 405 has a huge thing for redheads, and even though LiLo’s blonde at the moment, after her shoot for Muse mag, we were left quite desperate for this alleged 47-second sex tape which the starlet supposedly made with a money-grubbing waiter looking to score a quick $200,000.

London’s Daily Mirror reports Lohan enjoyed a brief affair with the waiter last year and cites a spy who says the vid is dynamite: “It’s pretty seedy and shows Lindsay engaging in a particular sex act which, obviously should remain behind closed doors.”

I get short and sweet, but 47 seconds? That’s a quickie record.

According to Fleshbot, the footage was offered to Hustler, but they declined.

The 23-year-old Lohan is allegedly “devastated,” though I honestly don’t see how 47 seconds is any more “damaging” to her reputation than the yummy video she shot for Muse.

Come on, Lindsay, you tease, GIVE IT TO US!

What America Said About Adam Lambert

January 9, 2010 Hollywoody No Comments

As you may recall, at the close of the American Music Awards of 2009, former Idol runner up Adam Lambert performed his first single For Your Entertainment, a raunchy tribute to rough sex that contains delicious little jewels such as “It’s alright, you’ll be fine, baby, I’m in control. Take the pain, take the pleasure, I’m the master of both.”

We like that. And we thought his performance was nothing particularly out of the ordinary given that nowadays everyone and his shoe retailer tries to do something really shocking during award shows. From Angelina Jolie sucking face with her brother James Haven at the 2000 Oscars all the way to Madonna kissing Britney Spears, then Christina Aguilera, at the MTV Video Music Awards, shock has become so commonplace at these things as to no longer be all that shocking. (Scroll to the end of the post for the clip.)

But, you know, we’re a little more progressive (and dare we say, rational?) than most people.

The watchdogs at the Parents Television Council were not quite so calm in regard to the performance, which briefly simulated oral sex and involved a kiss between Lambert and a male performer. The group urged viewers to complain to the FCC if they were living in an area where the performance was shown before 10PM local time.

The FCC has received 5,000 complaints just for his performance alone. And now, we can all get a look at what America’s saying thanks to The Smoking Gun:

Speaking in his own defense, Lambert was quickly to point out to Rolling Stone magazine: “Female performers have been doing this for years–pushing the envelope about sexuality–and the minute a man does it, everybody freaks out. We’re in 2009–it’s time to take risks, be a little more brave, time to open people’s eyes and if it offends them, then maybe I’m not for them. My goal was not to piss people off, it was to promote freedom of expression and artistic freedom.”

Katy Perry: If Her Man Fails, There’s Always Girls!

January 8, 2010 Hollywoody, News No Comments

Katy Perry kissed a girl and she liked it–that much we know.

But just in case her fiance Russell Brand isn’t 100 percent clear, she’s gone on record saying she will turn to women if he somehow fails to fulfill her.

Lamest way to ensure fulfillment ever. Though what do I know about these things, I once beat my ex-husband over the head with my vibrator.

Don’t ask.

Gamers Won’t Be Seduced, Will Stare At Random Cleav Instead

That Steam allows the objectification and sexualization of female characters in a variety of its games but refuses to accept a game about actually engaging with women in a more interactive fashion is astonishingly backward.

FetLife Is Not Safe for Users

That the site doesn’t take measures to protect user content and has shown incompetence or negligence in regard to user privacy, all the while prohibiting victims from warning others about predatory behavior creates an environment where it is nearly impossible for members of the community to take care of themselves and one another. By enabling FetLife to continue espousing a code of silence, allowing the spinning self-created security issues as “attacks,” and not pointing out how disingenuous FetLife statements about safety are, we are allowing our community to become a breeding ground for exploitation.

Why You Should Vote No On Prop 35

Should people who benefit (parents, siblings, children, roommates!) from the earnings of “commercial sex acts” (any sexual conduct connected to the giving or receiving of something of value) be charged with human trafficking? Should someone who creates obscene material that is deemed “deviant” be charged as with human trafficking? Should someone who profits from obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should people transporting obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should a person who engages in sex with someone claiming to be above the age of consent or furnishing a fake ID to this effect be charged with human trafficking? What if I told you the sentences for that kind of conviction were eight, 14 or 20 years in prison, a fine not to exceed $500,000, and life as a registered sex offender?

Pretty and Calls Herself a Geek? Attention Whore!

If you are a woman, you might be given a chance to prove yourself in this community. Since there is no standard definition of what a “geek” is and it will vary from one judge to the next anyway, chances of failing are high (cake and grief counseling will be available after the conclusion of the test!). If you somehow manage to succeed, you’ll be tested again and again by anyone who encounters you until you manage to establish yourself like, say, Felicia Day. But even then, you’ll be questioned. As a woman, your whole existence within the geek community will be nothing but a series of tests — if you’re lucky. If you aren’t lucky, you’ll be harassed and threatened and those within the culture will tacitly agree that you deserve it.

Cuddle Chemical? Moral Molecule? Not So Fast

Zak’s original field, it turns out, is economics, a far cry from the hearts and teddy bears we imagine when we consider his nickname. But after performing experiments on generosity, Zak stumbled on the importance of trust in interactions, which led him, rather inevitably, to research about oxytocin. Oxytocin, you might remember, is a hormone that has been linked previously to bonding — between mothers and children primarily, but also between partners. What Zak has done is take the research a step further, arguing in his recent book, The Moral Molecule, that oxytocin plays a role in determining whether we are good or evil.

How to Avoid Pissing off a Stripper

Let’s talk about the strippers. Whether they like to be half-naked or not, whether they enjoy turning you on or not, there’s one thing they all have in common: they’re working. Whether you think that taking one’s clothes off for money is a great choice of career is really beside the point (is it a possibility for you to make $500 per hour at your job without a law degree? Just asking). These women are providing fantasy, yes, but that is their job. And as a patron of the establishment where they work, you need to treat them like you would anyone else who provides a service to you.
