Fluff: Blurred Lines gets gender-swap parody.

1. What rhymes with awesome? 

If you didn’t like Robin Thicke’s (NSFW) Blurred Lines clip of models bopping around topless and sans pants then chances are this gender-swap parody version will be more to your liking.

US “boylesque” troupe, Mod Carousel, created a gender-swap parody of the music video, which features fully clothed women and men in flesh coloured g-strings and high heels. Take a look:

“It’s our opinion that most attempts to show female objectification in the media by swapping the genders serve more to ridicule the male body than to highlight the extent to which women get objectified and does everyone a disservice,” Mod Carousel explains.

“We made this video to present both women and men in a positive light, one where objectifying men is more than alright and where women can be strong and sexy without negative repercussions.”

And Bill Clinton’s rendition of Blurred Lines may be the best thing we’ve ever seen:

American actress Amanda Bynes has been taken in for an involuntary mental health evaluation after she started a fire on a driveway outside a home in California.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 27-year-old  Bynes had no association with the occupants of the house who were not home at the time of the fire.

“When police arrived, ‘deputies spoke with her and interviewed her and determined that she met the criteria of a 5150,’ Buschow said Tuesday, identifying the section of the California Welfare and Institutions Code that places a person under 72-hour involuntary psychiatric hold after they ‘make statements that they’re either a danger to themselves or others, or gravely disabled.'”

A 5150 psychiatric hold was used in 2008 on Britney Spears when her erratic behavior and public meltdown sparked concern from family and officials.
