Gaga or Madonna?

BY Laurie in General

Who would you rather hang out with? While I am the last person in the world to have anything good to say about pop music, radio songs, or whatever it is you want to call it, after watching Gag's and Madge goofing around on SNL , I started thinking about the old and the new, and tho I've never been a fan of their music, you've gotta hand it to these ladies for making BIG strides in the business on their own merit. I started compiling my lists of the pros and ... Read More

Carrie Fisher is one of those celebrities that I love in the back of my mind, but who isn't part of my daily life. However, when I saw that she had a one-woman show up at Studio 54, I had to go. 'Wishful Drinking' is a humble and humorous romp through Fisher's various marriages (totally forgot she was married to Paul Simon!) and mental breakdowns that showcases how Princess Leia herself is still crazy after all these years. Most of the people in attendance at ... Read More

Every year I do this to myself...I wait too long to think of a Halloween costume and then I'm scrambling to find bits and pieces to create the perfect ensemble. Last year, a Frenchman was my costume of choice, which included a drawn on mustache, a hat that resembled a beret (who knew black berets sold-out in October?!), striped shirt, and a little red neckerchief. Ah yes, it was a cute choice. But this year? I just don't know. I'm poor so a big-to-do is not going ... Read More
Well, if you're in NYC, anyway.

The Heretics is a documentary that reveals the history of Heresies, a feminist art collective that populated lower Manhattan during the 1970s, just in time to play a pivotal role in the Second Wave of the Women's ...

  If watching Whip It! doesn't make you want to lace up your skates, I honestly don't know what will. By the time I left the theater this weekend I was smiling ear-to-ear and daydreaming about buying a new pair of wheels. Is skating making a comeback? The last time I strapped some wheels on my feet, my friends and I were surprised by the number of people at the rink. Of course, even more startling was having to show ID and get patted down to enter the ... Read More

Usually we don't have anything good to say about traditional lady mags (or for that matter, Fox News), but this month, Glamour's finally on to something -- plus-size models! Plus-size really meaning 'normal-size,' 'healthy-looking,' and 'totally beautiful.' Glamour's November issue, out on Tuesday, will feature a photo shoot with plus-size models Kate Dillon, Crystal Renn, and Lizzie Miller, and in honor of the occasion, Fox News has compiled a slideshow of ...
