• Retailers are trying to convince landlords to lower rents so they can keep their stores open. We wish apartments worked that way. [WSJ]

• Model Liskula Cohen is suing Google to try to force them to reveal the blogger who called her "skank" and "ho." She says such posts tarnish her "reputation and desirability for endorsing products." [British Vogue, Daily Intel]

• MTV is casting for True Life: I Don't Like My Breasts. "We are not looking for girls who just want to get boob jobs … If you feel like your breasts are keeping you from having the life you want … then we want to hear from you." [NYP]

Cindy Crawford on her early modeling days: "Some girls at school found out, called me and said they were from a local store in our town, saying they wanted me to model for them. I showed up for the interview and the woman there said she knew nothing about it. I was so humiliated and I walked out and saw four girls from high school pointing and laughing." [British Vogue]
