Sia’s new video is seriously awesome

What could make Sia‘s song “The Girl You Lost to Cocaine” even better than it already is? A hilarious video that has the Australian pixie blonde playing several different characters, including a soccer mom, a hooker, and Strawberry Shortcake. Seriously.


A different kind of Juno, featuring Tegan Quin

The USA has the Grammy’s, and Canada has the Juno Awards. Tegan and Sara’s The Con was nominated for alternative album of the year but lost at the award show this weekend. However, a sick and solo Tegan played as part of “The Songwriters Circle” for the Juno celebration, and luckily, a fan uploaded audio of her describing songs about MySpace and giving foreign interviews to harsh German reporters. A must for fans (aka all of you.)


Tyra Banks won’t give Kim Stolz her cell number

Tyra Banks appears to be pissed that former ANTP contestant Kim Stolz chose to attend her FIERCEE Awards as a repoter for MTV News instead of a former participant. Or she could be pissed Kim asks the other models if they use any of their photos from the show in their current portfolio (they don’t.)

OUT has a job for you

Out Magazine’s Popnography blog has a few job ideas for queer retail workers:

> If you’re a clothes hound > Work at H&M

> If you’re a serious artiste > Work at MAC Cosmetics

> If you’re a hippie kid > Work at Ben & Jerry’s

> If you’re a caffeine addict > Work at Starbucks

> If you’re a mall rat > Work at Hot Topic

> If you’re a lit geek > Work at Borders

And this will only work if you are gay. Well, maybe at H&M you’ll have the upperhand. Make a note of it on your application.

JD and Joanna talk about MEN

NewNowNext has a video interview with JD Samson and Joanna Fateman about MEN. They discuss their moniker, their music, and their crowd. Unfortunately, they say they won’t everplay Le Tigre as part of their set. Bummer!

Kim Stolz: putting her economics degree to work

Kim Stolz is not not just a pretty face–she’s also a reporter. MTV is putting Stolz to good use as a correspondent for MTV News, covering the 2008 election. Follow her blog posts and leave her an insightful comment…or one that says, “Show us your boobs!”

We love lesbian reporters.

Joan Jett and her girls

A few weeks ago, we told you about Joan Jett and Girl in a Coma being featured as style idols in the new issue of Venus Zine. Now you can read both stories on the mag’s web site. Unfortunately, they didn’t talk to GIAC’s lesbian member Jenn Alva about her style, but let’s just say she’s certainly one of us (see the one in the center, below.)
