Basically MJ will get on stage and talk about whatever she damn well pleases, and knowing her, it will be completely freaky, fascinating, and funny.    Show & Tell at ... Read More

Vibrator Truck Comes to NYC

BY Lisa in Sexy

These days food trucks are a dime a dozen. But come next weekend, there’ll be a new truck in town, and it has nothing to do with meals on wheels. The Good Vibrations/Trojan truck will be hitting the streets of NYC July 28 – July 30, and while it’s mainly a marketing ploy for Trojan’s line of vibrating products, it’ll also feature some pretty cool stuff, like giveaways, live interviews with sexperts, and handing out “fun” ...

I’m a sucker for a lady with a sweet set of pipes and a singer/songwriter sensibility, which is why I love me some Jolie Holland, and have since I first heard her demo Catalpa when I was a wee baby music writer back in the day. In fact, I had the good fortune to interview her at the time, even though I had no interviewing skills to speak of, and over coffee in her San Francisco apartment, she proceeded to be one of the most gracious, open musicians I’ve ...

Got a roommate horror story?

BY Lisa in General

Ladies, do you want to bitch about your roommate? I want to hear it. We’re working on a story about all the ways living with other girls can go south, so if you’ve had a bad roomie situation (whether it involves significant other overstaying their welcome, weird neuroses about borrowing stuff, chore-splitting disasters), please share your story (I promise not to use your real names). But it’s not only the dirt I want. If you’ve been able to ... Read More

Be a Betty in Betty

BY Lisa in Style File

Betty White’s been everywhere lately, and now she can be on your very own chest thanks to a new limited edition line of T-shirts and hoodies featuring the last Golden Girl standing. Don't worry, she sanctioned the use of her mug and a portion of the proceeds even go to the Morris Animal Foundation of which Ms. White is a trustee. And if you're wondering why this gal has the hoodie strings in her ears, it's cause they're machine-washable earbuds (the input ... Read More
Our writer Alyssa Pinsker got the goods from author Anna Fields about what a rebel deb is, and what it means to be one. “Put simply, like my Momma always says...Every one of us starts off a debutante, then becomes a rebel, but when we finally grow into our own...we’re a little bit of both.” So writes Anna Fields in her new debut memoir, Confessions of a Rebel Debutante (Penguin Group), which will make every girl who didn’t fit in, acted ...

Good Golly Miss Molly

BY Lisa in General

Molly Ringwald has a new book out. It’s called Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family and Finding the Perfect Lipstick and though I haven’t read it the title alone kinda triggers my gag reflex. But she’s Molly Ringwald! Samantha Baker! Claire Standish! I will love her till the day I die so I don’t really care what she’s shilling, if Molly Ringwald is making an appearance, I will be there. Which is exactly what drew me (and ... Read More

Class Actress? Class Act

BY Lisa in Music Stuff

Any band that cites Madonna’s first album as a major influence is gonna get a listen from me. And in the case of the forthcoming EP from Class Actress (it hits ears Feb. 9), another and another and another. After totally falling for the Brooklyn trio’s throwback synthiness and lead singer Elizabeth Harper, who has a voice like buttah, I had to check them out at the Highline Ballroom last night, where they opened for Au Revoir Simone. They took the ... Read More

More! Gift Guide!

BY Lisa in General

Picking things for the holiday gift guide is one of my favorite duties when it comes to working on the Dec/Jan issue. It's so fun to window shop on the Internet and see all the awesome goodies that everyone puts together. Inevitably, I find way more cool stuff than fits on one page, so here are a few extras in case you need some additional gift-giving inspiration (for friends, family, or, of course, yourself!). First up, this Letter Bag from Moop in gunmetal gray. ... Read More
We've been fans of Rachel Trachtenburg since she was but a wee lass, bangin' the drums for her family's band, the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. So it's a little hard to believe that she's turning 16. What's not hard to believe though, is how many awesome people will be helping her celebrate on December 13th at the House of Yes in Brooklyn! With performances by Murray Hill, Care Bears on Fire, and Rachel's new band SUPERCUTE, this is a sweet 16 party you ... Read More
