Not to put a damper on anyone’s day, but I wanted to touch on the recent controversy surrounding Glee star Heather Morris' and photographer Tyler Shields' new photo shoot. The images show the blonde in a polka-dotted dress surrounded by household appliances, clearly as a Barbie doll figure. That’s not the controversial part. She sports a black eye in the photos as well. Looking through Mr. Shields’ work one can see Morris' photo spread is not the only one that raises eyebrows. The artist has pictures of many well-known public figures in compromising setups.

OK, I know we just posted about U.K. foursome Veronica Falls last month, but I’m crushing so hard on them, I just have to share this new vid for “Bad Feeling” (directed by Philippa Bloomfield), the first single off of their LONG-awaited debut LP. Veronica Falls hits your earholes on September 20, and of course it’s coming out on Slumberland Records, one of the best indie labels out there.

The best thing about these items though? Forty percent of all proceeds from the FNO collection will go to benefit the NYC Aids Fund. Now those are some T-shirts and accessories I can definitely get behind. I'm especially digging the tote with the brown handles.

  Anyone who has practiced yoga knows how powerful it can be. Now there's a new documentary film coming out which explores the yoga phenomenon. The documentary, Yogawoman, is narrated by Annette Bening and it tells the story of women finding power and strength through yoga. It deals with women’s personal experiences of empowerment through yoga, but also with the history of yoga itself.
