The Ultimate Jayne Mansfield Obsessed Blog Entry

I don't want Marilyn Monroe, you can have her. I want the No. 2 - Jayne Mansfield in her fabulous pink mansion. Because when you're number two, you gotta try a little harder: show a little more cleavage, sigh a little deeper, act a little dumber.

 

 

Seriously. The woman had a heart-shaped pool at her "Pink Palace". 

 

Did you think this iconic photo was of Sophia Loren throwin' shade at Marilyn? Nope. It is definitely Ms. Mansfield.


 Ugh. I just. Ugh.

 

OMG she recorded a fucking album?!


YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS.

 

and....whatever is happening here...

 ^EDIT: just found out they are Jayne Mansfield-shaped hot water bottles. "22-inches long, hard plastic mold" creepy.  I did some research and the original run of those water bottles go between $40-$140 on ebay. I am seriously thinking of an investment in one.

 

anyway, this.

 

Now, more of her mansion, The "Pink Palace":

 

There is just so. much. carpet.

 

A heart-shaped fireplace? Dying.

 

The study.

 

 

Those black silk sheets tho.

 

Top Ten Tuesdays: Coolest Music Scenes in Movies


The Shins - New Slang
Garden State (2004)
I'm pretty sure The Shins had changed my life before I saw Garden State. I love Natalie Portman's smile in this scene. I love how it grows.

Otis Redding - Try A Little Tenderness
Pretty In Pink (1986)
God this is amazing. And sexy. She should have chosen the Duck man.

Nico - These Days
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
I wish I could change life into slow-motion like in Wes Anderson Movies.

Sneaker Pimps - Six-Underground
Can't Hardly Wait (1998)
I also wish that I had theme songs that followed me into a room like Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Annie Lennox - Money Can't Buy It
Striptease (1996)
I don't know about you, but the part at 2:27 makes me feel funny things for Demi Moore. So. Sexy.

Elton John - Tiny Dancer
Almost Famous (2000)
It's movie scenes like these that make you believe in the magic of awesome road trip sing-alongs. I mean, everyone is in this bad mood, and then one person starts jamming to an amazing song and everyone joins in and life just seems right. Plus Kate Hudson's "You are Home." Kills me every time.

Lisa Bonet - Baby I Love Your Way
High Fidelity (2000)
I wanna live with a musician.

Teen Witch - Top That
Teen Witch (1989)
THIS IS WHY I LOVE 80S MOVIES. FOR IMPROMPTU RAP SCENES LIKE THESE.

Felix Da Housecat - Money Success Fame Glamour
Party Monster (2003)
"For we are living in the age of the thing." Plus Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green in fabulous costumes.

The Carpenters - They Long To Be Close To You
MirrorMask (2005
Sooooooo creepy.

Feel free to add your own favorite music scenes in movies in the comments. I'm sure I missed a bunch because Top Ten Tuesdays only allow a list of ten. It's the rules. Of top ten lists.

Top Ten Tuesdays: Ten Celebrities I Wouldn't Mind Being Friends With


Admit it. You've thought about it. You've thought about being famous and having famous friends from Hollywood. Not the friends you see at awards shows or parties, but the ones that you'd invite to spend the weekend on your yacht in Crete. If you haven't thought of it, I'm guess I'm the only one who has. Here are my Celeb BFFS. This list could also double as celebrities I would want to meet.

10 CELEBRITIES I WOULDN'T MIND BEING FRIENDS WITH

1. Miranda July

We could become creative partners and make adult-sized footie pajamas while writing stories about our childhoods and our lost loves on the bottoms of shoes.

2. Natalie Portman

Besides the whole making-out-by-the-wailing-wall thing in 2005, she seems like a really cool person,. She's a Harvard grad and I really enjoy that she uses her power as a celebrity to be a spokesperson for humanitarian groups such as FINCA International and Do Something and animal rights.

3. Claire Danes

Maybe it's the teenage connection to her when she played Angela in My So-Called Life. I feel that she still has a little bit of that awkward, introspective poet in her, and I also think if we were BFFs I could talk her out of being a Latisse spokeswoman.

4. Juliette Lewis

If you haven't noticed, Juliette Lewis is kind of fucking awesome. She'd probably ask me to play the tambourine in her punk band and braid her hair backstage in the VIP lounge while we drink PBRs after our shows.

5. Amanda Bynes

Even though these days she's been getting a lot of flack for her Twitty Tweets, if Amanda were my BFF she would tweet me something like this: "OMG @JennaBFF! Haha girl you can have my chocolate."

6. Shirley Manson


"If you have any opinions at all or if you're even remotely verbal then they're going to call you fiery. I don't think they can deal with someone being complex and contradictory; it's not acceptable, you have to be a cartoon, a stereotype. I am a contradictory mess but I see it as my prerogative to change my mood like the weather. And nobody's going to make me do otherwise. I've been like this since I was born. You could go back to Edinburgh and ask anybody and they'll tell you that I've always been the same." - Shirley Manson (The Minx, January 1999)

7. Cindy Sherman

Cindy and I would take pictures of each other dressed as female bowlers with matching league polos. And then we would have a beer afterward and she would judge me with her artist snob.

8. Kelly Clarkson

"You have one message. From: 'Kelly Clarkson' Time: 5:38 PM Message: 'OH SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE...I'VE BEEN MISSING YOU OH SO MUCH! Jenna, it's Kelly, you should come over and eat ice cream on my couch with me and watch 'From Justin to Kelly' again and we can laugh at my horrible acting."

9. Alecia Moore AKA Pink

As my best friend I could deliberately pick fights and KNOW for a fact that the other bitch was going down because Pink was on my side, and she has brass knuckles surgically implanted into her hands. Well, not realy, but we'd win the fight and then ride off on her BMX bike into the sunset.

10. Zooey Deschanel

If Zooey and I were BFFS we would mostly hit karoke bars and sing 50's tunes and then she would let me borrow all of her clothes in her closet.
