Britney Spears Posts Pics Wearing Nothing But a Red Thong and Heels: ‘Booty Time’

What time is it? Well, pop queen Britney Spears said it’s “booty time.”

In an Instagram post from Sunday, January 9, Britney Spears shared photos of herself from the back wearing a cute red thong–and absolutely nothing else (except heels, of course). In the carousel, Spears posted three different photos of herself in the thong, followed by an image of white gloves and a rose. For the caption, she simply wrote, “Booty time -🌹🌹🌹.”

These red thong selfies come just a few days after Britney Spears shared naked photos (with emojis covering up specific areas) on her Instagram grid. “Free woman energy has never felt better,” she wrote in the caption. 

Spears’s 13-year conservatorship ended in November 2021. Since then, she’s gotten more candid about her situation. In late December 2021, she opened up about her family and her relationship to making music now: “People have no idea the awful things that were done to me personally…and after what I’ve been through, I’m scared of people and the business!!!! They really hurt me!!!!!! Not doing my music anymore is my way of saying ‘Fuck You’ in a sense when it only actually benefits my family by ignoring my real work…it’s like I’ve subconsciously let them win.”

She’s still enjoying music, though. Recently she’s been dancing to tracks from Madonna’s Music album, just one of many things she’s calling an “indulgence.” “I’m sure it looks weird me dancing to @madonna  so much 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️…” she wrote. “I see it … it’s like I’m not trying as much like I’m INDULGING 😂 ….. well thats exactly what her music does to me 🤪 !!! I mean I had my first glass of red wine 🍷 last weekend !!! I’ve waited 13 years … that’s long enough !!! The sarcasm of me me me … my family taught me well by their actions … to be selfish and love thyself … play on 🌹🌹🌹!!! In a world where we all have the right to speak … drive … buy alcohol … party … have cash … I apologize for INDULGING in front of the masses … and dancing a touch slower !!! I mean what was I thinking 😂?? Nobody’s perfect !!! Pss… Yes I read the comments and people are absolutely hateful.” 

Celebrities Pay Tribute to Bob Saget After His Sudden Passing

Bob Saget, stand-up comedian, Full House actor, and former American Funniest Home Videos host, passed away Sunday, January 9, in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida. He was 65 years old.

Following the news of his death, many celebrities paid tribute to Bob Saget, who was universally beloved in the stand-up comedy world and in Hollywood.

Maude’s Cone Helped Me Get Over My Fear of Anal Play

Let me start by saying that I’m an anal virgin—or, if a butt plug can take your virginity, I at least was until very recently. I first tried exploring anal stimulation with my finger back in college, after a campus sexuality workshop touted the joys of the anus, but felt nothing close to pleasure so I gave up. A few years later, I got a butt plug but just couldn’t seem to get it up there. To be honest, the whole concept of having something in my butt freaked me out.

So, when I first received the Cone—the very first butt plug created by sexual wellness brand Maude—I was skeptical as to whether it would fit inside me, let alone do anything for me. I was pleasantly surprised, though, that I succeeded in the former, and even got some of the latter.

Maude’s brand is all about simplicity, and this product is no exception. The Maude Cone doesn’t vibrate like many other butt plugs do—it’s just 4.25 inches of platinum-grade, soft-touch silicone (3.5 of those inches are insertable, and the width is 1.5 inches), with a tapered shape for easy insertion and a flared base so it can’t get stuck in you. The toy is phthalate-free and latex-free for those concerned about chemicals—and waterproof for those who want to use it in the shower or bath. It’s intentionally slim for anal beginners like yours truly, and it only costs $30, so if it’s not your thing, it’s not a huge investment. 

Another thing Maude likes to do is create sleek, elegant products that look good on your nightstand. I happened to leave the Cone on my bathroom counter and I did feel strangely comfortable with it there: The green silicone (it also comes in charcoal), petite size, and thin shape make it look more like a tiny, dim lava lamp than a sex toy. (It also comes with a nice canvas bag for storage and travel.) Alas, though, I eventually had to work up the courage to bring it into bed with me. 

To maximize my chances of being able to actually get it inside me, I played with my clit for a while first. Then came the moment of truth. The whole thing didn’t slide right in immediately, but with excessive-seeming amounts of water-based lube—you shouldn’t use Cone with oil or silicone lube as it will apparently degrade the silicone—and gradual movement, I was surprised that it went in with little discomfort. And once I got the insertion itself out of the way, it stayed snuggly in there thanks to its flared base, which also happens to have a suction cup so adventurous users can attach it to the floor or wall. Getting it in was the hardest part; the rest was a breeze.

I used a vibrator on my clit while the Cone was inside my anus, and when I climaxed, I could feel my anal muscles contracting along with my vagina—sort of like a full-pelvis orgasm. The anal muscles are actually always engaged during orgasm, but feeling them contract against something intensified the pleasure and made the whole sensation more spread out. 

I also tried a few experiments: Even though the Maude Cone doesn’t vibrate, I was able to make it vibrate by holding my vibrator against the base, which created a pleasant buzzing sensation in my anus. I also tried penetrating my vagina with a dildo while the Cone was in me, but it felt like too much—there just wasn’t enough space for them both. When I was ready to call it a night, the plug came out of me fairly effortlessly when I pushed my pelvic muscles outward. 

All in all, while having something up my butt while I masturbated was kind of an odd feeling, it was also a new and interesting one. Is anal pleasure suddenly my thing now? No. But having finally succeeded in using an anal toy, I do feel like I’ve reached a sexual milestone. Anal play no longer intimidates me so much, and even though I don’t know if I’ll want to explore it further, it feels liberating to know that I can. Thanks, Cone! 

Gigi Hadid Is the Latest Celebrity to Go ‘Expensive Brunette’

Gigi Hadid hasn’t been afraid to experiment with her hair these last few months. She’s been everything from blonde to bright red and now, the coolest shade trend: expensive brunette.

The supermodel unveiled her new look in an apt fashion: a new campaign for Moschino, shot by photographer Steven Meisel. You can see the photo here. Hadid’s hair is now a rich sunset brown, and for this shoot, it’s styled with super volume and a top-knot bun. It’s stunning. 

So what, exactly, is expensive brunette? “Expensive brunette is all about giving deeper hair energy, dimension, and detail,” says celebrity hairstylist Tom Smith, European creative director for Evo Hair. “It’s all too easy when going for a darker shade of hair color to apply one tone all over, a similar result to using a box dye at home. I’m of the opinion that it’s professional hair colorists’ responsibility to give our clients something they could never get at home, and so expensive brunette is all about adding detail and interest with multiple deeper shades to make the result more dimensional and expensive looking.” 

Smith continued, “In the celebrity world, it’s often ‘the bolder the better,’ hence why so many celebrities are blonde or choose obviously artificial shades for their own hair or use wigs. Now that a brunette can look equally as ‘expensive’ and ‘designed’ as brighter or bolder shades, it makes sense that many celebrities are interested in the deeper tones.”

If you’re interested in achieving a similar look, Smith has some suggestions for when you’re at the salon: “The key element to discuss with your hairstylist is that you don’t want one flat color all over. Expensive brunette is all about depth and dimension, and so you and your colorist should agree on the deepest shade and the lightest shade you want to see in your hair and then allow the colorist to place shades between in a way they see fit to enhance your hair cut…It’s key to make sure your colorist knows you want to be seen as an ‘exciting brunette,’ not edging towards being seen as a blonde.” 

Thanks, Gigi Hadid, for the 2022 hair inspo. 

Demi Lovato Debuts Large Spider Tattoo on Freshly-Shaved Head

Demi Lovato just debuted a new, very cool tattoo on their freshly-shaved head. 

The singer unveiled the ink on Instagram Saturday, January 8. It’s a spider tattoo, placed on the side of Lovato’s head. Check it out for yourself, below. 

@ddlovato

Lovato then added a quote card to their Instagram Story that may explain the tattoo’s inspiration: “It was Grandmother Spider who taught us many things. She taught us about pottery and weaving. She taught us about fire and light and dark. She taught us that we are all connected on the web-each one of us having our place in this world.” 

Demi Lovato came out as gender non-binary in May 2021 and announced they’d be using they/them pronouns going forward. “Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity and chance to be who we want and wish to be,” Lovato wrote on Instagram. “I’ve spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you… you’ve seen the good, the bad, and everything in between.”

They continued, “Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras. Today is a day I’m so happy to share more of my life with you all—I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary and will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward.”

Lovato added, “This has come after a lot of healing and self-reflective work. I’m still learning and coming into myself, and I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me. I’m doing this for those out there that haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones. Please keep living in your truths and know I am sending so much love your way xox.”

Kate Middleton’s Jewelry in Her 40th Birthday Portrait Is a Tribute to Princess Diana

Kate Middleton turns 40 on Sunday, January 9, and for the occasion, The National Portrait Gallery released three new, stunning photos of her. 

You can see them all on the official Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Instagram page. One is an up-close black-and-white shot. Another has Middleton in a red, one-shoulder dress. And the last one, a black-and-white long shot (see here), actually contains some subtle tributes to Princess Diana. 

Eagle-eyed royals fans will notice the diamond and pearl drop earrings Middleton wears in the photo previously belonged to Princess Diana. Also, the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing that iconic sapphire engagement ring, another nod to her late mother-in-law. 

Kate Middleton has frequently paid tribute to Princess Diana with her style and jewelry choices. We have an entire gallery of examples. Last July, a statue was unveiled in honor of the Princess of Wales on what would’ve been her 60th birthday. Prince William and Prince Harry reunited for the occasion. 

“Today, on what would have been our mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength, and character—qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better,” Prince William and Prince Harry said in a statement, according to People.

The statement went on, “Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy.”

“Later this week my brother and I are recognizing what would have been our mum’s 60th birthday, and she would be so proud of you all for living an authentic life with purpose and with compassion for others,” Prince Harry said at the 2021 Diana Awards before the unveiling, according to Harper’s Bazaar. (The Diana Awards honors young activists.) “Our mum believed that young people have the power to change the world. She believed in your strength, because she saw it day in and day out. And in the faces of young people exactly like you, she witnessed a boundless enthusiasm and passion, and I, too, see those same values shine through.”
