Courtney Love Did A Commercial For Those Weird Electronic Cigarettes

Courtney Love Did A Commercial For Those Weird Electronic Cigarettes

Courtney Love is on a roll lately, endorsement deal-wise. In addition to starring in the new  YSL campaign for expensive clothes based on the cheap clothes she used to wear, she’s also gone and done her first(!) commercial for a product that perfectly encapsulates what the famed Hole frontwoman means to us in 2013: the e-cig.

Judith Anastasia Funnie–or “Judy”–was Doug Funnie’s older sister.

But everything comes together in the end. More »

Angela, Angela, Angela. Everybody cares about Angela. …Or Jordan, but he never really did it for me because I don’t like men “accidentally deep.”* Anyway, why not celebrate Rayanne Graff, who had the most memorable style from My So-Called Life anyway? Sure she was a total mess and had drunken sex with Jordan, but you’d be a wreck too if your mom was a “tarot enthusiast.” And speaking of which, if you can’t afford all the rad 90′s throwback apparel contained herein, just steal some cash from your parents. It’ll be whatever. More »
