Brittney Griner To Model Gender-Neutral Nike Clothing

Brittney Griner nikeIn case you were living under a rock on Mars for the past year, Brittney Griner is this incredibly tall awesome woman basketball player who dates other women and wears bow ties. (Check out this ESPN profile of her for more on that.)

She’s the Ronda Rousey of orange leather balls. Or Bill Nye, except instead of teaching science, she’s breaking barriers in sports and changing views on gender roles.

Like Rousey – who convinced MMA president Dana White to allow women in the UFC and is on her way to becoming the sport’s first female millionaire – Griner is very good at what she does and is about to make major bank on her it factor combo of individuality and talent.

CBS Wants to Ruin Any Remaining Shred of Fun at The Grammys

Crazy grammy dresses 2Good thing Lil’ Kim and Trey Parker have no reason to be at The Grammys this year. An email sent by CBS Standards and Practices to attending celebrities lists all the things they’re not allowed to wear.

No-nos includes “thong type costumes,” “sheer see-through clothing” and “brand name products on T-shirts.” One-piece tuxedos and turtlenecks are okay.

Problematic (and favorite) language in the memo, which was reportedly leaked by a low-level staffer, would have to be the redundant references to “female breast nipples” and “buttock crack.”

Urban Outfitters Backlashed For Stereotyping The Irish

 New York congressional district rep. Joe Crowley and nine members of something called “the Congressional Ad Hoc Committee on Irish Affairs” sent the CEO of Urban Outfitters an angry letter after a bunch of semi-humorous St. Patrick’s Day apparel appeared on their website.

The ‘Gap’ To Close Nearly A Quarter Of U.S. Locations


With your favorite video stores (Hollywood Video, Blockbuster) defunct or mostly bankrupt and your favorite record labels of the 90’s obliterated (Arista, Jive, and J Records) you can now count on one iconic clothing store of the 90’s to shut down a large portion of their locations…

Hustler Loves “The Situation,” Abercrombie, Not So Much

Abercrombie & Fitch, the famous clothing line for youths and early 20-somethings issued a statement Tuesday that proposed an offer to pay Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore/ab-flashing fame to stop wearing their clothing, here’s what a spokesperson for Abercrombie said:

“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image.  We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans. We have therefore offered a substantial payment to Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and the producers of MTV’sThe Jersey Shore to have the character wear an alternate brand.  We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently awaiting a response.”

I think referring to themselves as “aspirational” is a bit of a stretch considering they’re the ones that had to stop sending out copies of their A&F quarterly promotional publication due to lawsuits surrounding controversial imagery that included jailbait boobs and young men’s abs! (Not to mention claims of racial discrimination by former employees)

Sinead O’Connor Looks Like Harry Potter’s Fat Cousin

Sinead O’Connor, is a respected artist right? Her cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” was the wispy, teary-eyed anthem of 1990 and beyond. It was also a number one on the US Hot 100 Chart, and Connor herself gained notoriety in 1992 by tearing and burning a picture of the pope during a performance of her song “War,” on Saturday Night Live. She was also the hip, sensitive, bald activist/extremist 90’s singer version of Natalie Portman.

So explain this new look to me, which the Irish singer debuted while she was singing backup for former Bob Marley keyboardist Natty Wailer and Celtic folk singer Damien Dempsey at Bray Summerfest 2011.

The festival takes place south of Dublin, Ireland, and Connor took the stage to support Dempsey and Wailer on August 7th, where she showed of her business lady jacket, mullet-bowl haircut, glasses, multiple-chin, giant hip-hop cross, sheer belly-net and black camel-ball pants.

She’s 44, but really really looks like a rebellious little boy chanting scripture from the Torah at his Bar Mitzvah, attempting to piss off his parents with leftover prop jewelry from a Madonna video.

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
since you took your wand away
I go out every night drinking butterbeer all day
since you took your wand away
since you’ve been gone I hear Moaning Myrtle’s haunts
I can see Snape if I choose
I can eat dinner at Hogsmead restaurants
but nothing can take away this news
cause nothing compares to
nothing compares to you (Hermione)

[Sung by Irish sensation Harry Potter Connor Jr.]
