Of late we have been plagued by seeing a number of things we find truly baffling. It seems we are in need of another “Help Me Understand” edition of the Princess blog. We feel so very inadequate. Sigh.
We begin with this:
We cover many collaborations in this space. There are so many posts containing news of such partnerships, we actually added a ‘collaborations’ category to keep track of such things. Some make sense, such as Social Primer’s Bow Tie collection for Brooks Brothers (explained here), or J. Crew and Essie doing nail polish.
But then we see OPI doing the Shrek Nail Polish collection and we tilt our head to one side and scratch our updo.
However, this is essentially harmless, and lord knows TP loves almost anyone making a savvy marketing move, so we really aren’t “anti-Shrek Polish”. (Phew, the folks at O-P-I will sleep better tonight. Dopey Princess.)
But then there’s this:
Scantily clad singer and Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen singer is only 16 years old; she is generally dressed as in the photo above when performing with her band, making us wonder where her parents are? Recent comments from the teen about her fondness for knives are generating quite the buzz:
“The American actress, 16, told how she has a knife collection and ‘relaxes’ by opening and closing a switchblade.
She said: ‘I have a knife collection. I have my favourite black knife with me all the time. It’s a switchblade.
‘It relaxes me to flick it. I close it and open it.”
Perhaps Ms. Momsen is more like her character Jenny Humphrey than initially thought. For more on the topic, click here.
“”The candle has a top note of diced sweet onions and crisp pickle, the middle notes are beef patty, cheese and ketchup, and bottom note is a warm burger bun. It all comes together to create this amazing aroma of a White Castle Slider.”
