Has Urban Outfitters gone too far?

One Million Moms is condemning Urban Outfitters for a new catalog ad that shows two girls kissing.

The anti-gay group is targeting Urban Outfitters after the clothing retailer displayed a photo of two girls kissing in their latest catalog.

“The April 2012 catalog from Urban Outfitters has begun arriving in home mailboxes the last couple of days,” the group writes on its website. “On page two of this catalog is a picture of two women kissing in a face holding embrace! The ad and catalog are clearly geared toward teenagers.” The alert concludes, “The content is offensive and inappropriate for a teen who is the company’s target customer.”

Earlier this year, One Million Moms, a division of the American Family Association, threatened a JCPenney boycott after the retail chain appointed DeGeneres as its spokesperson.

However, after DeGeneres received massive support from fans and even unlikely advocates including Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, One Million Moms dropped its case and eventually decided to move on to other issues. Still, Monica Cole, director of the “pro-family advocacy” group, told OneNewsNow, “We have heard back from men and women — not just moms — saying they will no longer shop there at JC Penney, as long as Ellen DeGeneres is their spokesperson.”

What do you think – is the ad tastefully done – or over the line?

Brooklyn Decker turns up the heat in this new GQ photo shoot!

Brooklyn Decker is a model, actress, and married to tennis star Andy Roddick. She’s everywhere right now, including the pages of GQ Magazine, looking hotter than ever (in my opinion). In order to promote her new films, ‘Battleship’ and  ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting”, Brooklyn sat down (and lounged around) with GQ in a new interview.

Here are the gorgeous pictures, along with some of the interview. You can see more pictures – and read the full interview here:

On Kristen Wiig.

“I feel like her character is my inner soul,” she explains now. “The ways she acts are my inner thoughts, but I just can’t express them because they’re too nerdy. So if he was calling her crazy, I guess that makes me slightly crazy.”

On supporting Gisele Bundchen, after she was slammed for trashing her husband’s (Tom Brady) teammates:

“I have a top-five list, and Gisele is my number one. So she can do no wrong in my eyes.” Hold on—what kind of list is this, exactly? “Well, everyone has a top-five list of their biggest crushes, you know?” says Decker. “Usually, it’s guys on my list, but Gisele is just so perfect in every way.”

On some of the “favorite” the men in her life:

One guy who didn’t make Decker’s list: Taylor Kitsch, her co-star and love interest in this month’s board-game-to-movie-blockbuster Battleship. Decker talks about the Friday Night Lights actor almost fraternally, labeling his habits (dirty jokes, hockey addiction, general Canadian-ness) as “Kitschisms.” “But you probably shouldn’t quote that—like, make it into an official noun or anything,” she says, “because then it’s going to make his head really big.”

Decker gets bashful only once during the conversation: when she’s pestered for more names in her top five. She finally agrees to share one more, and the reason for her reluctance crystallizes the moment she utters the name Dave Matthews. “Yeah, I know. I know.” She talks through the shocked silence. “I know! I know, I know. My husband is really gonna make fun of me for this.” For once, the men of America are on Andy Roddick’s side.

There’s also a video at the source. :) Enjoy!
