Lourdes the Material Girl gets a Trendy Undercut!

So, Lourdes Leon, the most famous teenager in the world, daughter of Madonna and one half of clothing empire, Material Girl, has had half her hair shaved off in that most intriguing of hairstyles, the undercut. Yep, just like Alice Dellal, the Brit supermodel and face of Chanel Boy, sugar-voiced songstress, Ellie Goulding and pop’s rising star of 2012, Emeli Sande, Lourdes has been clipped on one side, leaving her remaining flowing locks in an edgy, masculine style. 

Wowsers. She now has a totes rebellious look, to compete with her fellow material girls, like Kelly Osborne (with grey hair the colour of a cloudy November afternoon, and one squillion multi coloured tattoos) and her material girl models, who they selected from competition entrants, and who each have a kookier personal style, (mad shades of hair colour, bonkers accessories and tattoos as well) than the one before. 

What does Lourdes’s mother, otherwise known as The Queen Of Pop think of the development? We don’t know, but we’d hazard a guess that Lourdes won’t be grounded for this particular makeover any time soon. The reasons to suppose this are – 1: because back in her own Material Girl days, (the song, not the brand) Madge’s own style was extremely similar to that of Eighties bubblegum pop supremo, Cyndi Lauper, who, you’ve guessed it was an early pioneer of the shavey, ravey style. And number 2 -  the undercut, often chosen by posh birds as a way to look more edgy without doing themselves any lasting damage, is the modern equivalent of having your belly button pierced in the Nineties. It looks superficially daring, but in fact, if you get bored of it, you simply stop using clippers and it grows back on it’s own. (Belly button rings can be taken out and they heal up, of course.)

We have heard that Lourdes attends an extremely elite and academic private school in London, and Madonna has remarked in many an interview that she is quite a strict Mum, so maybe that is why Lourdes has taken herself off the barber’s to get clipped, rather than the tattoo parlour to get inked (!) But if she does, we’ll be the first to let you know!

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

Web portals STOMP and The Real Singapore published pictures of her in February, triggering a witch hunt for others like her and comments from readers like “Who knows if they’ll use it as cooking oil?” Some readers also said they filed police reports against her and other people they believed were doing the same thing she was.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
