Sparrow Face Is The New Duck Face

Plus the best fake blood, Macy's Black Friday move, and more of the top stories of the day

• Duck face, it is but a scourge upon us all. But thankfully, there's a new horrid facial expression that's soon to takeover. It's called sparrow face, and it's somewhat, slightly less annoying. It involves opening your eyes really, really wide, and parting your lips just-so before snapping a pic. The idea is to make yourself look a bit like a "chirping sparrow." Or something. We think it is miles less ridiculous looking than duck face, so go forth and sparrow. [The Gloss]

• Did Britney Spears get the Photoshop treatment in her "Work, Bitch" video? It appear so. Yes, it appears so. And it's pretty dang extreme. [Daily Mail]

• Check out this unbelievably gorgeous "unpretty" pic of Khloe Kardashian, that she tweeted as part of TLC's "Unpretty Mondays" campaign -- a campaign to get women and girls to tweet photos of themselves without makeup. Khloedoms should go sans fards more often. She's a stunner. [E!]

• Not content to ruin the day after Thanksgiving for you, Macy's has decided to move Black Friday to Thanksgiving itself. It's now opening at 8pm on the holiday and staying open for 24 hours straight. Those are gonna be some exhausted shoe department employees. [Business Insider]

• There is an art to getting fake blood to look just so -- too runny and you look like you just poured beet juice on yourself. Too thick, and you look dipped in bloody honey. Neither are good options. The key is the perfect corn starch-to-corn syrup ratio. Just trust us and follow this recipe. [Bellasugar]

• In some cases, there is truth in advertising. Like when a diet supplement calls itself "Craze" and happens to include a "performance fuel" compound in it that's similar to methamphetamine. According to a new study published in Drug Testing and Analysis found that Craze contains N,N-DEPEA, which is very similar to N,alpha-DEPEA -- a methamphetamine analog.The longterm effects of using the drug are unknown. [Business Insider]

• Rita Ora's been spending an awful lot of time with Karl Lagerfeld. Just this past weekend she and Herr Karl were spotted participating in a midnight photo shoot where she was positively covered in Chanel. She even snapped a photo of the two of them and captioned it, "Taking a midnight stroll with the man who inspires me to be glamorous at all times without a hint of doubt. Love you uncle Karl." Which leads us to believe that she's possibly angling to be the new face of Chanel. Uncle Karl! [MTV Style]
