NEWS.WORTHY

February 27, 2010

  • The subject of Carly Simon’s much speculated hit “You’re So Vain” is actually about David Geffen?  Turns out, the song is not about any of Simon’s famous exes, but rather her record label boss. Well that’s no fun!
  • French-Canadian sports newscasters said some pretty homophobic comments about Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir. In a press conference, Weir responded in the most kick-ass way possible, stating, “”It wasn’t these two men criticizing my skating, it was them criticizing me as a person, and that was something that really, frankly, pissed me off. Nobody knows me. … I think masculinity is what you believe it to be.”
  • A woman named Angie Jackson live-tweeted her abortion in order to “demystify abortion”. Not surprisingly, she’s been severely criticized and received death threats. You can read an interview with Jackson here.
  • The cover of the new Q Magazine sports Lady Gaga wearing a strap-on. Inside, she’s quoted as saying, “We all know that one of the biggest talking points of the year was that I have a dick, so why not give them what they want?” But wait! The cover is banned in the U.S.!
  • A fertility test for men will soon be available in Europe and is being tested by the FDA in the U.S. The test is the first of its kind to be available over the counter.
  • A Russian chimp with a fondness for cigarettes and alcohol is being sent to rehab.
