Open Mike: The Must-See Movies of Paul Thomas Anderson

["Open Mike" is the often off-topic, anything-goes editorial page of TOP. It appears on Wednesdays.] And now for something completely different. I'm wary of movies—there's too much drek and dross out there, too much dirt to move to find the occasional gem. To get around this, I tend to follow threads of some sort—a director I like, an actor, even a writer (who are risky to follow because they usually don't have enough control over the final movie. That's the result of how they're treated, not th...

Kacey Musgraves Is Giving Us Butterflies With Her Cher-Style Long Hair at the ACMs

Kacey Musgraves has been dominating music this year (she won four Grammys for her album Golden Hour), so it's no wonder she's starting to embody a music legend. While attending the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas on April 7, the star looked strangely familiar. Her long, hip-length hair, center part, and doll-eye lashes look eerily like Cher's go-to look in the '70s. The celebs look so similar that it definitely requires a double take. The singer paired her dramatic hair look with r...

Lyle Tuttle, 87, ‘Granddaddy Of Modern American Tattooing’

“Tuttle, who considered himself a social pioneer, was celebrated for pushing tattoos toward mainstream acceptance, especially for women. He left his indelible mark on stars such as Janis Joplin, Joan Baez and Cher (that was his work on her derrière in the ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ video) – along with more hirsute clients, such as Henry Fonda and the Allman Brothers.” – San Francisco Chronicle

What Is The Met Gala’s Camp Theme Exactly?

Update:Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute, further explained the relevance of the 2019 Met Gala's theme to Vogue on Tuesday, calling out its cultural relevance.Camp, Bolton notes, “has become increasingly more mainstream in its pluralities—political camp, queer camp, Pop camp, the conflation of high and low, the idea that there is no such thing as originality.” He continues: “but I think you’ve got to be incredibly sophisticated to understand camp—look at Yv...

The One Thing You Never Noticed About Elizabeth Holmes' Look

Between not one, but two upcoming documentaries, the podcast The Dropout, and Jennifer Lawrence’s next movie, an adaptation of the bestselling book about her rise and fall, the entire world can't stop talking about Elizabeth Holmes.Many questions have been posed about the woman behind the once-famed, now-infamous biotech company Theranos — including why she always wears that turtleneck, why she really talks like that, and her dog Balto's well-being. But just as important to her image as the Ste...

How To Get A Curly Perm Without Looking Like Your Mom's #TBT

Before we were obsessed with lobs, lace-front wigs, and rainbow-colored hair, there were perms. Curly perms, to be precise; the dramatically teased, extra-wavy hair that occupied the heads of your mom, grandma, and celebrities like Cher, and the look of choice for period films like Grease and Flashdance.Given today's trends, you might think that the curly perm is best reserved for your mom's #TBT photos — but it's actually alive and well, and better-looking than ever before. For straight hair t...

As If! These Clueless Lip Glosses Are a MUST For Fans of the Movie

Even though Cher's high-tech closet in Clueless isn't quite available yet, the next best thing is: the Clueless Totally Buggin' Lip Gloss Set ($15). The trio of plaid-adorned glosses are available at pop culture store Boxlunch and are a must-buy for any superfan (we know you go to Clueless trivia every Thursday). The three glosses are decorated just like the film's three main characters - Cher, Dionne, and Tai - and are encased in a packaging that looks like a '90s translucent purse that the g...

The 7 Best Paul Rudd Roles

The 7 Best Paul Rudd Roles Paul Rudd is likable. There is no better single word to describe him. He may not be lauded for range, but only because he likes to shoot comedies so much. As films like Perks of Being a Wallflower show, he is perfectly capable in dramas. But his ability to draw a comedic audience is nearly unmatched. His likeability is almost to the detriment of some of his roles. You may find yourself rooting for even his dumbest and most inconsiderate characters because of th...

Week 13: Selfies, Art and Natural Beauty of LA

Once again on our morning of departure from LA we did a quick about face and change of plans. We wanted to go to Death Valley, but after a few phone calls to reserve an RV campsite we realized it was not the best decision. Everything was booked out as it’s peak season now. Death Valley is not an ideal summer destination. We also learned there are a few road closures thanks to weather destruction. So there is a fair bit of work going on AND gold mining, which meant the chances of us getting accom...

The Voice in the Machine

Electronic sound has been part of American musical life for over a century. As early as 1907, audiences in New York attended concerts featuring the massive early synthesizer, the Telharmonium. Just over two decades later, tens of thousands of listeners heard the theremin in concerts and radio broadcasts, around the same time that thousands of organists began playing the Hammond Organ in churches across the country. Music historians tend to use these three instruments as examples of early technol...

5 Bizarre Red-Carpet Beauty Rituals Celebs Do On The Down-Low

Thanks to a never-ending stream of #BehindTheScenes content on social media, it’s pretty easy to source exactly which shade of lipstick or what styling products were used for just about any red-carpet beauty look at any time.

RuPaul changed nightlife in NYC

Thanks to the internet and social media, most people are familiar with the art of drag. The way we currently know it, however, really only became part of mainstream culture in the last decade. This shift in the landscape is in large part due to the work of RuPaul Charles. Heavily influenced by the way individuals have been conveying gender expression throughout history, RuPaul has helped drag reach never-before-seen heights. In 1992, he released the song “Supermodel (You Better Work),” a dan...

How Infomercials Almost Ruined Cher’s Career

The early 1990s were tough years for Cher. Battling chronic fatigue syndrome and unsure of her next career move, she signed up for some easy dough by appearing in that most maligned of TV contrivances, the infomercial. In a three-part series for Lori Davis hair-care products, the statuesque chanteuse perched on a sofa and marveled...

‘A Star Is Born’ Co-Writer Eric Roth Suggested Lady Gaga Study Cher in ‘Moonstruck’ to Play Ally

Why The Corners Of Your Mouth Crack — & How To Fix It

Just like chapped lips, it's easy to associate the development of dry, crusty patches on the corners of our mouths with exposure to extreme cold and dryness: too many nights in arid Palm Springs, or too many days fighting frostbite in New York. But it turns out that those flaky patches of skin anchoring our smiles aren't just an extension of dry, irritated lips gone rogue — and they're not cold sores, either. Rather, they come courtesy of a condition called angular cheilitis, which can stick ar...

How Kip Berman Gave Tom Petty's 'Full Moon Fever' the Pains of Being Pure at Heart Treatment

None With their dreamy guitars, exhilarating percussion, and infectious lyrics, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart have crafted one of the most memorable discographies in the indie scene. Since their debut in 2009, with their self-titled album which featured the anthemic "Young Adult Friction", they have consistently put out effortlessly great indie pop.
