As a survivor of domestic violence, this is a subject close to my heart, and it leads me to asks questions like:
- What responsibility does Hollywood have for depicting healthy relationships?
- Do they accurately represent abusive relationships?
You’ve undoubtedly seen the headlines and read the stories, as there are cases upon cases of such violence.
MTV VMA nominees turn up the heat with these five videos that make us feel dirty just for watching.
The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards nominees have been announced! We have chosen the five sexiest videos to be released since the Rihanna S&M video controversy (the racy video is still banned in some countries). These are the videos you dance in your underwear to in the morning and get busy to at night. And we promise to vote for Adele some other time.
Mick Jagger is reportedly not the only guy in Hollywood with a "tiny dodger."
Say what you want about the "motion of the ocean," but when it comes to certain body parts, bigger is usually better. However, having a tiny cock doesn't necessarily doom a man to a lame sex life. In fact, according to TheFrisky.com, one of the world's most swaggering lady-killers, Mick Jagger, has been called out recently by his band-mate Keith Richards for having a "tiny dodger" - (that would be slang for a "small dick," for those of you not fluent in Cockney.)
Surprisingly, Mick isn't the only guy in Hollywood, walking around with a small package. Below are 8 more dashing men who just might embody the idea that less is more...
AskMen's Top 49 Most Influential Men Of 2010 list re-ordered according to "The Dateable Index."
The results are in: John Stewart is The Most Influential Man In The World. Yes, yes. We'd have to agree. But what about the others? According to AskMen's 2010 reader survey results, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Kanye West, Drew Brees, James Franco, Elon Musk Jose Mourinho, and Graydon Carter top out the list of modern manly man in 2010. Their standards? Who has made the biggest impact, and ultimately, shaped what it means to be a man? That's all well and good, but we decided to re-rank the men based on "The Dateable Index," in other words, the top 49 men we are lusting after this year.
But for us, the question is more simple: Who would you rather?
In that sense, YourTango has created "The Datability Index." Here, we've evaluated the eligible (or, um, eligible-in-our-minds) fellows on their pretty faces, their current career power, whether or not they've managed to lock down a lovely woman whom we envy, and how often we see them photographed holding fat, adorable babies. The verdict is the AskMen Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2010, in the appropriate order—who would you do order, obviously.
The Streets brings the love and he brings the breakup pain.
White rappers come and go but mostly they just go. Eminem is the exception that proves the rule on this side of the pond. But 'round merry olde England way there's a guy called Mike Skinner, AKA The Streets, who has Slim Shady's staying power sans some of the neuroses. While he covers the usual white rapper trope of fame, hos, drugs and parental issues (with the bonus of Cockney Rhyming Slang), but he gets a little deeper with version of spoken-word rap. He actually treats relationships seriously and tenderly. He may be the most romantic rapper worth listening (that you've never heard of).
Nick Cannon is furious over lines in Eminem's "Bagpipes From Baghdad."
Eminem's new record, Relapse, has been leaked on the internet. One of the tracks, "Bagpipes From Baghdad," supposedly pokes fun at Mariah Carey. Her husband, Nick Cannon, is not happy about it. On his blog, Nick Cannon has struck back at his wife's ex-boyfriend and vowed revenge. The post has since been removed but we can probably expect the mother of all rap battles to drop this summer.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon held off on the premarital sex.
According to the old gossip train, Mariah Carey made Nick Cannon wait until they were properly wed to have sexual relations. This tactic is best exemplified by "Keep Your Hands To Yourself" by the Georgia Satellites. Clearly, he was OK with it, otherwise he'd just have hit some other little jump off and not sweated it. Weird times with celebs.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon did a prenup to preserve the romance.
Let it never be said that Mariah Carey doesn't know how to take care of business. The pop/ R&B diva put together an impromptu wedding last week but was smart enough to sanctify her marriage to Nick Cannon with a prenup. Well done, Mimi.
After conceiving a child together, Jessica Alba and Cash Warren have gotten engaged. These two have had an up-and-down relationship for years and it really could only have gone this way. Well, they probably have as good or better chance of any other Hollywood couple.
