It’s been a slow metamorphosis, but I’m finally starting to understand what Katie Holmes is going for.
The super-short haircut? The fedora? The ridiculous pants?
You guys, Katie wants to date Lindsay Lohan.
I can’t believe I didn’t see this before.

Cuban Olympic athlete Angel Matos may be banned from the sport of Tae-Kwon-Do for the rest of his life, after he deliberately kicked a referee in the face after losing a bronze medal fight.
Matos was winning 3-2, with 1:02 left in the second round, when he fell to the mat after being hit by his opponent, Kazakhstanâ€™s Arman Chilmanov.
Matos was sitting there, awaiting medical attention, when he was disqualified for taking too much injury time.
Fighters get one minute, and Matos was disqualified when his time ran out.
Matos angrily questioned the call, pushed a judge, then pushed and kicked referee Chakir Chelbat of Sweden, who will require stitches in his lip. Matos spat on the floor and was escorted out.
The World Taekwondo Federation has recommended he be banned from competing in the sport for life.
HELLS YES! That sort of shit should NOT be tolerated at this level of a sport.

So I’m currently in Port Angeles, Washington, on the Olympic Peninsula. My dad’s in town to do some hiking in the national forest nearby, and I decided to drive out for the weekend and join him since it’s only a couple of hours from Seattle.
In the Port Angeles area, there appears to be a gentleman running for elected office by the name of Hugh Haffner. I know this because his signs are everywhere. He has been the commissioner of the Clallam County Public Utility District #1 since 1994, and he’s running for another six-year term. I can’t imagine there is all that much interest in opposing him — in fact, I didn’t see any other campaign signs for that position — but that didn’t seem to stop Hugh Haffner from putting his campaign signs every 100 feet or so along the main road into town. Which was nice, because every time I saw one, I chuckled. Which was every twenty seconds. So once I got settled into my hotel, I had to look up this Hugh Haffner and see if he was worthy of the near-famous name.
I wonder if the Clallam County public utilities district commissioner gets a mansion. Because I could definitely get invited to a party there. And then I’d be all like, “Yeah, I went to a party at Hugh Haffner’s mansion this weekend, it was awesome,” and I’d totally be telling the truth.
Good luck with your election, Mr. Haffner!

Here’s Paris and a bunch of 11-year-old girls at a private press event to promote Paris Hilton’s new hair extension product with Sally Beauty Supply. The product is called The Bandit, and it appears to be a headband with the hair extension attached. I’m not sure why it’s called The Bandit, but, judging by this photo, it may be because it also steals all your abdominal fat.
If that’s true, I’ll take three.
However, as far as the whole extending of the hair thing goes, I would really like to see what one of these synthetic masterpieces looks like from behind, but I can’t find any photo like that, probably because this shit looks like a blonde helmet from the back. I mean, it seems like you have to have the headband positioned just so on your head for it to look even reasonably natural, which basically means that you can wear this product if and only if you plan to sit very, very still all day.
Do let me know how it goes if you try it.

Madonna — age fifty — kicks off her Sticky & Sweet Tour in the UK.
I know it’s been said a million times before, but this woman is ripped. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a body like that? I’ve been working my ass off in the gym for months and I’m just finally starting to see some definition — and I’m 26! (Granted, my eating habits have been imperfect at best.) Can you imagine trying to create a body like that at fifty???
