Strange spider shoes!

Tarantula-in-Freaky-ShoesThe tarantula shoe is a sky-high platform design that might be a danger to weak ankles, but this scary fashion oddity is the most dangerous shoe in the world for a very different reason; encased in the fashionable item is a live tarantula. Since goldfish shoes went out with the 70s, someone had to come up with a new living shoe design. No word whether or not this fashion might present an animal rights violation or if the tarantula has the ability to be removed. However, there’s no doubting that this scary shoe makes a bold and dangerous fashion statement.

Muslim Hipsters show a new face of headscarves to the tune of a J-Zay song

Late last month, Rattani and a group of Mipsterz (= Muslim hipsters) released a video to the tune of the Jay-Z song “Somewhere in America” .

The video shows diverse Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab, or head covering, and do so with individual style. The women are also seen doing quirky, random things like skateboarding, walking around a forest, and other hipster-esque escapades.

These women are lawyers, doctors, athletes, mothers, shoppers, but above all they are powerful Muslim American women… and they are hipsters!

The video has sparked huge amounts of commentary, both positive and negative.
