We at Betabeat are avid followers of Lindsay Lohan’s Twitter feed. After all, you never know what you might find there.

Just like Cyndi Lauper, Shindigger has prepared since childhood for Broadway’s biggest night by practicing our acceptance speech “to the shower curtain.” Of course, that practice came in handy for Ms. Lauper as she took home a statue at last Sunday night’s 67th annual Tony Awards. Shindigger, meanwhile, had to make do with running after Read More
- Just in case you thought those ForeRunner Chronicles that Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones participated in were part of a normal religious vlog, here’s the pastor who started the Chronicles, Christopher Hudson, talking about Jay-Z being a Freemason with demonic links, Obama’s ties to Hitler, and how NYC’s current gas crisis will lead to us eating each other, Walking Dead-style.

The Best and the Brightest should be called The Worst and the Dumbest.

We saved our best material from Tommy Hilfiger‘s epic afterparty at the Met Opera on Sunday night for the Shindigger column in tomorrow’s paper, which is chock-full of Fashion Week gossip and intrigue. (Check it out!) In the meantime, here’s a little taste of what we said, heard, and witnessed:

Red Carpet, Comprehensive Lists
Tommy Hilfiger spared no expense for his 25th-anniversary show yesterday; the invitations were notably elaborate, the runway was flanked by Astroturf, and even the run-of-show lists were printed on heavy-duty paperboard. (And that afterparty, at the Met Opera? We’ll get to that later.) It paid off, at least if you measure success by Read More
