it’s a very special day! A day where love in all its various forms is celebrated, for eating chocolate, and for remembering that time in the early 2000s when pop-lebrities loudly declared that they would wait...for sex.

On this week’s episode of Dirtcast, we sat down with Jezbel’s very own pop culture reporter Hazel Cills to talk about pop stars, purity rings, and the Bush administration’s quiet funding of organizations like Silver Ring Thng that urged teens to wear a ring and save their precious flowers for their future spouses.


Before we got into this scintillating and sexy topic, we covered some relatively to definitely dirty dirt, including Justin Timberlake’s attempt at relevancy, the glory and the spectacle of the Olympics and how nice it is that Quentin Tarantino’s shitty true self is finally, finally showing. We also touched briefly upon the celebrity feud that is honestly the most spiritually nourishing thing happening at this moment aside from the Olympics—Kim Cattrall vs. Sarah Jessica Parker.

My favorite part of Britney & Kevin: Chaotic was that she gleefully discarded this dumb lie. She proudly proclaimed they be fucking and its really hot pop star-dancer sex, not your boring plebian sex.
