Melissa McCarthy describes horrific wardrobe malfuntion!

If you’re a woman, chances are you’ve tried Spanx one time or another. They tighten you up – make you look a bit thinner – c’mon be honest, you’ve worn them. If you have, you know how “fun” they can be to get on, and even more fun to wear all day! What, with the static cling, the peekaboo moments, and so much more!

Melissa McCarthy, who I adore, stopped by “Ellen” to film a hilarious spoof for what “Bridesmaids 2″ might look like, as well as tell a horrifying story about an experience she had with Spanx.

It’s hilarious -and definitely worth the watch!!

Madonna Teased for Hairy Armpits in High School

Growing up in the Midwest, life wasn’t always easy for the Material Girl.

“The boys in my school would make fun of me,” she reveals in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar. They called her “‘hairy monster.’ You know, things like that,” she recalls. “And then, going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”

The singer says that hanging out in gay clubs as a teen helped her find herself. “Straight men did not find me attractive,” she shares. “I think they were scared of me because I was different.” But that obviously didn’t stop her.

Now a mother four times over, Madonna says she doesn’t like her age associated with her work. “I find whenever someone writes anything about me, my age is right after my name,” she muses. “It’s almost like they’re saying, ‘Here she is, but remember she’s this age, so she’s not that relevant anymore.’ When you put someone’s age down, you’re limiting them.”

Dakota Fanning’s controversial Marc Jacobs ads banned from the UK

Remember these ads? I posted them back in June when they were released by Marc Jacobs. The controversial ads are back in the public eye today, after the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK banned them, saying that while Dakota Fanning is over 16, the ads are overly sexual for a child.

Apparently the ad, which promotes Jacob’s fragrance ‘Oh Lola!’, was the subject of consumer complaints,  reports Telegraph.

The British Advertising Standards Authority has cracked down on the ad, which features a 17-year-old Fanning with an oversized bottle of the fragrance between her legs, after receiving complaints that the company was turning Fanning, a minor, into a sex object. Their statement:

“We noted that the model was holding up the perfume bottle which rested in her lap between her legs and we considered that its position was sexually provocative. We understood the model was 17 years old but we considered she looked under the age of 16. We considered that the length of her dress, her leg and position of the perfume bottle drew attention to her sexuality. Because of that, along with her appearance, we considered the ad could be seen to sexualise a child.”The Guardian reports that Coty, who makes the fragrance, doesn’t have the same problems with the ads, because most readers of the magazines featuring the ads are 25 or older, and that the picture was “similar to many other edgy images in those magazines.” They also stated that the ad doesn’t show any “private body parts or sexual activity,” and defended the ad as “provoking, but not indecent.”

What do you think of the ad? Is it too much? Does it deserve to be banned?
