!! OMG, THAIN KYEW-AH!: Study shows more men speaking in girls’ ‘dialect’ !!

So vocal-fry is a major epidemic here in North America. The ladies are apparently using it to sound “more authoritative and sexy” (DON’T LAUGH!), so it’s no surprise that it’s now spread down to the dudes. It’s also a really great way to show others that you’re polite whilst ordering your Eggnog Latte at Starbucks, but without making any eye-contact with that person serving you. That’s icky! An aptly placed “THAIN KYEWWWW” will do just fine, brah.
According to the findings which were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California:

“We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender,” said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of California who led the research. “We believe that uptalk is becoming more prevalent and systematic in its use for the younger generations in Southern California,” she added.
The team recorded and analysed the voices of 23 native Californians aged between 18 and 22. The researchers were therefore not able to infer similar language patters in older Californians.
She added that “uptalk” had negative connotations which made men less likely to admit to using it, but what was clear was that it was spreading.
“It grates on people, some people think it sounds really ditzy or insecure. This does not accurately come across like that to the native speakers.”

Don’t try to blame Clueless. Don’t even try and come for Valley Girl (it’s been 30 years). This is obviously the work of the dark arts, courtesy of the Kardashian coven!

!! OMG, hoe, hoe, hoe, and a bottle of rum and eggnog: The annual ‘Kardashian Kristmas Kard’ has arrived !!

rs_1024x339-131201150409-1024.Kardashian-Christmas-Card-Hi-Res.jl.120113_copy-1.jpg
Hollywood’s biggest pimp has done it again!
The annual Kardashian-Jenner Klan Kristmas Kard has arrived, and of course, Kris Kardashian is perched on the first place that accepts MONEY — the ticket booth. (Naturally, Bruce is locked away in a sealed glass case, terrified, and shoved far right.) Kanye and his spawn seemed to have potentially avoided the glass case and said HELL NO to this mess, as they are nowhere to be found.
David LaChapelle shot the “stunning” family with an abandoned-movie-theatre-meets-circus-freaks-type-vibe, and you can check out all the gorgeously airbrushed and kartoonish kloseups after the jump. Are you and your family doing something kwite similar and kewt for your own Kristmas Kard this year?

!! OMG, losing you for good?: Solange VS Dev Hynes BEEF escalating !!

tumblr_mggti8ZbTL1rhckgdo1_1280.jpg
In terms of the “Twitter beef spectrum”, this is probably the most un-scary of them yet: It looks like there may be big trouble in little Chinatown for the folks behind Losing You, the song you love to drunkenly sing while pointing into your friend’s face at last call!
Dev Hynes of Blood Orange fame is responsible for producing Solange‘s 2012 anthem, which helped to launch Knowles out from being considered just Beyonce‘s kid sister, into a full-blown pop presence. Recently though, there’s been a rift between the two, mainly concerning giving credit where credit is due. Solange sent out a string of tweets back in April about the writing of her album:

Y’all got it all the way wrong. Ive been writing and producing my own voice since 02, nigga … I find it very disappointing when I am presented as the ‘face’ of my music, or a ‘vocal muse’ when I write or co-write every f*cking song … Sexism in the industry ain’t nothing new.

Dev spoke to The FADER recently, and had a couple of things to say about the uneasiness with Solange:

The exact circumstances surrounding their falling out are unclear–and the two still share a manager. Hynes says they never resolved the issue. “We’ve spoken but I don’t know where it’s at,” he says. Hynes says he wrote a good portion of the album entirely himself, especially the songs “Losing You” and “Bad Girls,” which he wrote and recorded versions of before he even knew Solange, with Solange adding mostly structural and vocal changes throughout. But it’s difficult to quantify exactly who contributed what. Within a couple of months, though, Hynes had quit the tour before it was over and returned to New York, and he wasn’t asked to work with Solange on her next album.

Last night, Dev responded to some cryptic tweets that Solange has been posting, which many conveyed as a response to Dev’s recent FADER interview. Find them below. What do you think about the latest Twitter beef? Are you sad that Hynes and Knowles won’t be collabo-ing again anytime soon?

!! OMG, peace, love, unity, respect: Kandi Ravers share their mantra (and other things) !!


“We traded kandi, and then I touched his penis” is our new mantra this week thanks to this video of a bunch of mangled kandi ravers at New York’s Electric Zoo Festival.
That quote is like a refreshing spritz of Evian spray on your face, or maybe even some Vick’s Vapor Rub around your nostrils. Pure poetry in motion.

!! OMG, she’s a pixie: Pamela Anderson reveals new shorter cut on ‘ELLEN’ !!

rs_1024x759-131107061702-1024-ellen-anderson-ellen-jc.jpg
Wow, Pamela Anderson cut off her iconic popcorn-blonde locks! We’re into Pammy‘s new shorter look (decked out in classic Vivienne Westwood on Ellen), and we think she looks supes cute.
It must feel great for her shed that heavy mane after years of whipping it around in nothing but PVC bodysuits while a teamster hoses her down. It shows off her face and makes her look younger and more elegant too! (Ellen is totally digging it — she’s getting Portia vibes from Pam and it’s doing things for her…)
Check out the rest of Pam’s new cut after the jump! What do you think of her new ‘do? Are Pam and Jennifer Lawrence trying to tell us that “Pixies” and “Kate Gosellins” are the new shit?
