Carrie Prejean + Spider-Girl= Sexy Halloween

carrie-prejean-playboy

TMZ.com and Perez Hilton broke the story of the fan favorite, the ex-Ms. California, Carrie Prejean.  She shocked the nation by her anti-gay remarks on national television, being dethroned by Mr. Trump, and now by appearing on OUR website modeling some of our sexy Spider-Girl costumes. In addition, she participated in Comic Con 2008 modeling for Women of Marvel.

We are all for sexiness this Halloween season, but much of her conservative fan base is concerned with the affect of these photos on her public image…

Yea about that public image,….[It's been in jeopardy for quite some time]

Nevertheless, check out our Spider costumes, featuring the lovely Carrie Prejean:

Almost three months have elapsed since Michael Jackson’s untimely passing, but fans of the superstar performer are about to get one last glimpse of the King of Pop in action.  Rehearsal footage shot in preparation for a 50-concert run in London has been culled together and will be shown on the big screen as an exclusive, limited-engagement film titled This Is It.  You can view the trailer for this highly anticipated motion picture here.  The October 28th release date, mere days before Halloween, ensures that Michael Jackson costumes will (as usual) be an incredibly popular look next month.  So pick your favorite MJ disguise and celebrate the life of an icon when you see This Is It in the theater or as you moonwalk down the street while trick-or-treating.  Take our word for it, both the movie and the upcoming haunted holiday are going to be Thrillers!

Kanye’s VMA Disaster: Pres Obama Chimes In

This week has been a busy one reporters around the globe….

Hot topic of the week: World Hunger? War? Global Warming?……….Of course not..

It’s Kanye West…and he is up to his usual antics once again!

kanye

So apparently Mr. West was spotted all over the VMA’s carrying and indulging in what appears to be a life size bottle of Hennessey.  Seemingly under control, several photographs of him and girlfriend Amber Rose were photographed through out the night.

Fast forward to Best Female Video of the Year: The nominees included a stellar roster of superstars: Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift….

And yes to much of our surprise, the newbie Taylor Swift took the Moonman, which actually was her first ever…

Almost brings tears to our eyes…but then on live television, the big bad wolf, Kanye West mumbles some drunken gibberish on how Beyonce’s video was the best…ever…

When all was said and done…Taylor Swift stood on stage silenced, as if she was in the nude in front of a large audience….Poor girl, our hearts really do go out to her…

Now we are sure Kanye has felt bad from all the media scrutiny and celebrity commentary…but a statement from Obama …?

What a Jacka**!

Listen to Obama’s comment below:
