Gallery: Katy Perry's Diplomatic Superbowl Outfit From Every Angle

Amid all the fuss about Madonna‘s uninspired halftime performance and M.I.A.‘s “fuck you” to America, it would be easy to forget the terrible outfit Katy Perry wore to perform at the Superbowl’s pre-game show. But that would be a shame, because it’s one of my favorite fashion disasters so far this month! It’s terrible because it looks like a slutty football uniform, and football is a barbaric, life-ruining bloodsport. It’s also terrible because her outfit reps the Giants and the Patriots equally, and fence-sitters are cowards. Click through to see it from every ridiculous angle. More »

The 14 Most Ridiculous Costumes From The Giants vs. Patriots Game (Of Football)

The 14 Most Ridiculous Costumes From The Giants vs. Patriots Game (Of Football)

It’s a well-known fact among people who know me that I hate football. When my boyfriend revealed to me that he needed to watch “the game” while we were away on vacation this past weekend, it was like he’d torn off his human face to reveal himself to be some sort of alien/insect creature, so I promptly inserted my earplugs and started reading a book about masochism.

Would You Wear A Hat With A Stuffed Bird On It?

The Royal Ascot Horse Races are currently in progress, and while I don’t much care for an antiquated sport like horse racing (or any sports besides roller derby, really), the hats people wear to them are really not to be missed. The first photos are already out, and as the Cut reported earlier today, hats with birds on them are popular this year. But not just any birds: ACTUAL DEAD BIRDS. More »

Sex and the Sixties Girl: A Hole In None

 Sex and the Sixties Girl:  A Hole In None

Date Night at Chelsea Piers looks promising when I walk in and spy two 30-something tall men lumbering toward the entrance, golf bags slung over their shoulders, summer tans poking through their sporty – but not gay-looking – outfits. My friend Nicole, who really knows how to play golf and told me about this event, has left me standing near the entrance next to her golf bag while she uses the bathroom. I’m trying to pretend that I don’t feel desperate and sad to be spending a Friday night at an event that’s advertising my single status to the world. More »
