Straight Guys (And A Lesbian) Tell Us If They Find Lady Gaga Attractive

Straight Guys (And A Lesbian) Tell Us If They Find Lady Gaga Attractive

Yesterday, I spent a bit of time pondering the sex appeal of Lady Gaga. Despite her being a thin blonde chick in leotards, I’ve pretty much never heard her discussed as a sex symbol, and most of her fans seem to be gay men and straight women. I’m admittedly 99% straight, but I think she’s got a decent amount of hotness goin’ on, what with her slanted take on gender, her hot little body, and her intense, feral, “I’m a monster…no, I’m a motorcycle! Ride me! Grr!” schtick. Plus, I think her face is pretty in a character-laden, New York theater chick sort of way. (Does that sound mean? I don’t mean it to be!) In an effort to see if anyone wants to strip off her weird clothes and bone her, I asked people who are attracted to women if they think Lady Gaga is hot. Some of the answers were surprising; most were not. I’m starting to think I’m as bad as straight guys at assessing the attractiveness of people of my own gender. More »

Poll: Should the 'Hunger Games' Trilogy Be Split into 4 Films?

The Hunger Games has only just begun filming, but already executives at Lionsgate are saying that they’re confident they can wring four movies out of Suzanne Collins’ trilogy.

This, naturally, has prompted much beard-stroking and “hmmm”-ing from fans. More »

Poll: Would You Turn Your Backyard Into a Tiny Disney Park?

Poll: Would You Turn Your Backyard Into a Tiny Disney Park?

On Monday, June 6, HGTV is premiering a new show called My Yard Goes Disney. It will join the ranks of the many, many home makeover shows out there, but what makes this one unique is that it is the only one that will take people’s yards and transform them into itty bitty version of Disneyland, or World, or Euro, or whatever. That’s right: You, too, can have your very own Disney theme park, conveniently located right in your backyard.

Whoa.

This is what the Bradburn family’s yard looks like post-makeover: More »

Poll: Johnny Depp’s Kids Think Iron Man Is Cooler Than Jack Sparrow

Poll: Johnny Depp's Kids Think Iron Man Is Cooler Than Jack Sparrow

Things I did not know about Johnny Depp:

1) His distinctive sense of style was developed through the careful perfection of the “reach into the closet and wear whatever you grab” technique.
2) He used to use the name “Mr. Stench” as an alias during hotel stays, mostly because he enjoyed hearing the hotel staff say “This is your 6 o’clock wake-up call, Mr. Stench.” (Bonus if it’s in a foreign accent.)
3) He fears dancing.
4) His kids think Iron Man is cooler than Jack Sparrow. More »
