Captain Obvious to the rescue AGAIN.
Federal court has ordered global casual shoe brand Skechers USA Inc. to give 520,000 customers full refunds on their trainer purchases in a $40 million+ class action lawsuit: The company claimed that wearing their $80USD Shape-Ups, $54 Resistance Runner and their $40 ToneUps would actually help you, the gullible customer, to lose weight faster.
The courts considered multiple factors in deciding to approve the settlement and found it provides just compensation to the plaintiffs.
The settlement amount covers more than 70 lawsuits from across the USA. The lawsuits were consolidated in federal court in Louisville. Skechers denied the allegations but said it settled to avoid long litigation.
The CEO of [semi] popular co-ed fave brand Abercrombie & Fitch, Mike Jeffries [pictured] is still REFUSING to add larger sizes of women’s clothing to the stores. They only want “attractive and thin” people wearing their label, and they make no apologies.
When I first saw this story popping around reddit, not gonna lie to you – I thought it was a joke. I haven’t shopped in that store since college, how would I know?
Did some research on the American-retailer and on the news regarding their controversial stance on “acceptable women’s sizing” blah blah blah – come to find out, dude & Co. is serious.
“We go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes] [in our stores], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Good-looking people attract other good-looking people, and we want to market to cool, good-looking people. We don’t market to anyone other than that.” Keep Reading
Those of you who know me know that I LOVE ME SOME BEY. She can (most of the time) do no wrong in my eyes.
She’s beyond GORGEOUS, has a killer curvy body, she’s talented and successful, she has a husband who is equally as successful and supports her and she’s a MOM. I don’t know her personally (and it pisses me off) so from my vantage point it looks like homegirl has got it going ON.
But I have to say I am kind of ‘meh’ over this music/video commercial collabo betwixt Beyonce and H&M (she is the “face” of their summer campaign). It feels…”dated?” For lack of a better description. The song featured is her latest, “Stand on the Sun” which is pretty good – the “commercial/music video” features the usual bod-ay, hip rolling and hair-flipping-ness. The video was directed in the Bahamas by Swedish film and video director, Jonas Akerlund who has been in the music video game for a long, long time. What do you think?
My problem is that I expect too much. Girlfriend is exhausted after putting on that incredible Superbowl half-time show and deserves a little ‘creativity’ break.
What do you think of her dark-haired look? Sound off.
I love the internetz. Why? Because it provides a constant source of “clownery” (one of my favorite new made-up words) every single day.
Rebecca Martinson, president of University of Maryland’s sorority Delta Gamma, resigned today because a profanity-laced rant that she sent off to her sorors or “sisters” for “being ^%%# awkward and %$%$%^ boring” ended up going “viral.”
The lovely email communication ended up crawling around the world the way everything can and does now-a-days.
Read Rebecca’s words of wisdom below. **WARNING**: If cursing like a sailor, horrid truck stop language and derogatory profanity words offend you, I highly suggest you skip to the end: Keep Reading

I had an out of control Christmas/holiday. Had le fam over for din, cooked up a STORM for Christmas Day and had a good time – BOXING DAY, flew over to the East Coast and Connecticut to see my nuclear fam (mom, dad, Michelle, Liz, nephew Logan), to pray for Sandy Hook and then right back WEST to have NYE with the MONSTER. I got caught in a snow storm and almost had to spend the night in Philly, but a kind-hearted US Airways steward hooked me up and got me out of PA in time to open gifts.
Apparently, Keep Reading
