Miley Cirus Spends $3,000 on Lingerie

From the Enquirer:

"Miley is rebelling big time," a source close to her told The Enquirer. "Her parents hit they roof when they saw the pictures of her gyrating on [producer Adam] Shankman's lap [at the wrap party for The Last Song]. Her dad Billy Ray is livid because he fears Miley's behavior is going to cost her the wholesome 'Hannah Montana' audience that catapulted her sitcom."

Those antics, plus the $3,000 that Miley recently spent on lingerie, prove she's anxious to ditch her 'Hannah Montana' alter ego, sources say.

"The lingerie she bought was more 'Sex and the City' than 17-year-old stuff," divulged the insider.

Edible Underwear? Need a Food Permit

A Texas lingerie store owner says she’s shocked after being told she is going to need a food permit in order to keep her business.

The health department said even though Rosemary Benitez’s San Antonio store Shades of Love isn’t a restaurant, it still requires a food permit because it sells items like edible underwear, local news station KENS 5 reported.

Benitez told the station she believes the permit, which costs about $230 a year, and the routing health department inspections that come with it are completely unnecessary.

“Everything in the box says 'novelty item' only... It's not something you sit down and actually eat. It's more for licking and tasting,” she told the station.

San Antonio's Sanitarian Services Manager, Stephen Barschewski, told the station, "Any facility in the city of San Antonio that sells edible substance requires a food establishment permit. One, it's the law. Two, in case there's a recall, we certainly want to know the source."

Men Prefer Lingerie in Black over Red?

It’s enough to make you see red. Over half of British males say red is their least favourite colour for underwear and they actually prefer to see their bedmate in dark, mysterious vampiric black. Yet almost two-thirds of women think their men prefer to see them in a red bra and knickers.

A new study by laundrycare expert, Dr Beckmann, has overturned some of the most deeply entrenched myths about men, women - and underwear.

Red has often been held to be the sexiest lingerie colour - the one women wear when they are feeling "flirty", despite the fact it barely flatters the typical ‘pale English rose’ complexion. But this is no longer true, according to the average British male.

Once believed to be a favourite for Valentine’s Day boudoir gifts, racy, red lingerie, is now considered the biggest bedroom turn-off by British chaps, according to Dr Beckmann’s study.

More than 50% of the men questioned put red at the top of their least favourite list, with a further 18% giving the thumbs-down to pink, and 11% saying ‘No’ to flesh-tones.

The routing of red is a blow for many women, more than 60% of whom confessed to buying red when they wanted to impress their man.

Men however, do have a secret fashionista streak - because they actually prefer black, closely followed by white, which is good news for Dr Beckmann, since they are the makers of the laundry product, Glowhite.
