For you Forever 21 fanatics (myself included, I confess), I just wanted to let you know I received an email this afternoon advertising select denim for $9.50!!! An insane steal for sure, even for Forever 21. I don’t typically get my jeans there just because I’m a shorty and their denim is typically too long for me so I don’t have any reviews, but if you know Forever 21, you know you get what you pay for. Anyway, head on over to their website for the deals, the email said for a limited time only!

Saw this Alexander McQueen piece on If It’s Hip, It’s Here last month and I’ve been meaning to post ever since. It’s a clutch with brass knuckles embellished with skulls and shiz as the clasp! I love the attitude of this bag, it totally reminds me of something Rihanna would rock.  I hate bringing purses out at night, the strap is forever falling off my shoulder so I have to hold it up anyway. This you just slip on your knuckles and it’s there all night, also handy if some biddy starts actin’ a fool and you need to throw a few punches.

This beauty can be purchased at Saks for a mere $1595.  Ma, I know you’re reading…how bout this covers my Christmas and b-day gifts for say…the next 30 years or so?


Ok, I know everyone must be getting sick of hearing about the Gosselins, but personally I can’t get enough of the drama, especially anything that has to do with Jon and his incessant need to show the world the twatwaffle he really is. Either he’s the stupidest man on earth or the smartest, because he keeps coming out with new statements/antics that leave the rest of our jaws dropping with a big WTF?!?!?!?!

Anyway, Christmas came early for me the other day when I saw this clip of Nancy Grace ripping Jon a new one on The Insider.

Seriously, this made my day. The only other thing I could ask for is a dream team interrogation panel of Nancy Grace, Judge Judy, Maury, and of course, Project Runway’s Tim Gunn, to rip apart that nasty Ed Hardy shiz.

Kanye West attempted to do damage control via his blog, with an apology to Taylor Swift. For those of you who don’t know already, at last night’s MTV VMA’s, West jumped on stage during the country singer’s acceptance speech, stole her mic, and proceeded to tell the audience that Beyonce had the best video of they year. (see the video in my post from last night.)

Here is what Kanye had to say, in his trademark, obnoxious ALL CAPS:

I’M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD’VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE’S IN THE BLEACHERS! …………………… I’M IN THE WRONG FOR GOING ON STAGE AND TAKING AWAY FROM HER MOMENT!…………….. BEYONCE’S VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE!!!! I’M SORRY TO MY FANS IF I LET YOU GUYS DOWN!!!! I’M SORRY TO MY FRIENDS AT MTV. I WILL APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR 2MRW. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!!!! EVERYBODY WANNA BOOOOO ME BUT I’M A FAN OF REAL POP CULTURE!!! NO DISRESPECT BUT WE WATCHIN’ THE SHOW AT THE CRIB RIGHT NOW CAUSE … WELL YOU KNOW!!!! I’M STILL HAPPY FOR TAYLOR!!!! BOOOYAAAWWWW!!!! YOU ARE VERY VERY TALENTED!!! I GAVE MY AWARDS TO OUTKAST WHEN THEY DESERVED IT OVER ME… THAT’S WHAT IT IS!!!!!!! I’M NOT CRAZY YALL, I’M JUST REAL. SORRY FOR THAT!!! I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR TAYLOR AND I’M SINCERELY SORRY!!! MUCH RESPECT!!!!!

To me, this apology smacks with insincerity. Is he mocking her lyrics? I feel like his PR team made him apologize, he didn’t want to, and this is what he came up with. He feels bad for Taylor? Why, because she won? “I feel really bad for Taylor” is something an outsider should say. He’s a fan of real pop culture? Does that mean Taylor isn’t “real” pop culture? Well Yeezy, I have some news for you…T. Swift’s album Fearless sold 3.7 million copies this year…more than any other album (courtesy of Perez Hilton.) If that’s not pop culture I don’t know what is. I’m still really pissed about this. Kanye’s always had a lot of haters, but I’ve respected the music he’s made. This kind of throws all that out the window. He can do all of the “apologizing” he wants, but he’s still gonna come out looking like a tool.

In other news, after Beyonce (female video candidate for ‘Single Ladies’) won Video of the Year, she invited Taylor Swift onstage for a ‘do over.’ This makes me love B even more than I already did…Clearly she felt bad about Kanye’s disruption and even though it wasn’t her fault, she made it up to T. Swift with class. Yay!

Heartless.

I previously posted that Kanye West is one of my favorite rappers. Even though his public persona has always been cocky and obnoxious, my love and respect for the music he makes always overrode his rampant douchebaggery. However, tonight at MTV’s Video Music Awards, West made possibly the most crazy, over-the-top move that will more than likely cost him a few fans…and gain him quite a number of loud and pissed off haters.

As nineteen-year-old country singer Taylor Swift took the stage to give her acceptance speech for winning best female video (‘You Belong With Me’), Kanye West stormed the stage, stole the mic from Swift and proceeded to say, in less words, that Taylor was undeserving and that Beyonce (up for ‘Single Ladies’) should have won. Here is a video clip…make sure you peep it before it’s taken down:

Ugh. As someone who always supported Kanye, this is such a turn-off. Really? She’s a teenager and a sweetheart, for all that the public can see. And she won an award she deserves. Grow the hell up Kanye.


Happy Sunday.

Happy Sunday everyone! I was so excited today for the first Sunday football day of the year-and my favorite teams all managed to become 1-0 today so I’m a happy camper. I’ve got an insane amount of homework to finish up before Tuesday and a crazy busy week (not to mention my 21st on Wednesday!) but I promise I will do my best to get some posts up. It’s supposed to be absolutely gorgeous here in upstate NY this week, so if the weather is nice by you, get outside and enjoy it! Personally, I’m going to try and be outdoors as much as possible because I know it’s only a matter of time before the endless wind, snow, and slush of winter set in…have a wonderful week loves!

My old roomies Julie, Sarah and I used to dread heading to Wal Mart because let’s face it; although Wal Mart does boast very, very low prices, you can find some pretty unsavory characters there. Little did I know, my local Wal Mart is pretty tame. Julie tipped me off to a website called People of Wal Mart, where visitors can browse and submit crazy “seen at Wal Mart” photos. Now I know it’s wrong to laugh at people who don’t have the means to always dress fashionably, believe me, I get that. But some of this stuff is downright hilarious. Here are some of my favorite photos:

So, a word to the wise people. Think the next time you step out of your house on a quick errand thinking no one will see you so it doesn’t matter how you’re dressed…because clearly you never know.
