Thousands of Democratic National Convention staffers and volunteers, a host of South Jersey politicians, and hundreds of Camden residents on Thursday took in performances by Lady Gaga and Lenny Kravitz at an event hosted by George E. Norcross III, the Democratic superdelegate often described as New Jersey's most influential power broker. The "Camden Rising" concert at the city's waterfront BB&T Pavilion was billed as an invitation-only affair, but in the days leading up to it, several community groups and Camden residents received stacks of tickets to hand out. As a result, many in the audience were Camden City or County employees, or members of well-known community groups.

Contemporary nail shapes are like math equations: Square + oval = squoval. Long + pointy = stiletto. The trendlet Long + square = coffin. The newest style may sound morose - in the 1800s, "coffin nails" were slang for cigarettes - but the mini-squared-off fingertips in spring lilacs and corals are giving 2016 fingertips quite a mod look. Where does it come from? Long nails were trendy in the 18th century, when they were known as filberts. However, by the 1900s, after a decree from Queen Victoria, who found stiletto-shaped nails offensive, they were round and short.

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend has worn panties since he was 12. We are both 20 and have been together for a year. I know it's odd, but I've always thought it was cute and, admittedly, sexy. We will graduate from college next year and are thinking about our futures. I've been doing some reading and am concerned that he may have some repressed tendencies. He says he does not and gets quiet and stubborn and won't discuss it. He always dresses as a female character for Halloween, wearing my undies.

Ashton's ninjas Whoa! There were ninjas at Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis ' super-duper-secret wedding? Any casualties? "It was a ninja effort," Kutcher, appearing Wednesday on Ellen DeGeneres ' show, told her of the lengths and depths he went to to keep the "I do" a secret.

YO, THIS is one thing I've actually done well at the last few years, which is more than I can say for my weekly college football picks. So let's try to have some fun again, and make a little rent money in the process. I always try to look for stuff with decent odds. So you won't see many even-money plays here. But I'll try Lady Gaga to go sing the national anthem in under 2 minutes, 20 seconds. It'll be close. And I'm usually an over guy. If nothing else, it gives you something to root for before the coin flip.

This week brings the premiere of two radically different, but equally stimulating shows. FX's disturbing, inventive American Horror Story returns for a new installment Wednesday. Also on Wednesday, Hulu will present its new rom-com, Casual , a surprisingly intelligent show about dating for thirtysomethings. Lady Gaga's fangs American Horror Story: Hotel seems to have all the ingredients of a memorable horror classic. Driven by a great goth sound track of funereal dirges by Joy Division and Bauhaus, the fifth incarnation of the anthology series features an unforgettable performance by Lady Gaga - at turns stunning and creepy, beautiful and grotesque - as a vampire countess who rules over an assortment of monstrous atrocities at a gorgeous art deco hotel in Los Angeles called the Hotel Cortez.

I NEVER REALLY appreciated the whole online dating scene. The closest I ever got was filling out the free online profile then waiting as the "we're almost finished uploading your page" message kept blinking, along with a desperate request for a photo because as the company kindly counseled "your chances will be much greater," which translated as "seriously, cow, do you think anyone is going to buy your milk sight unseen?" When I saw what was available before I signed up for a three-month deluxe package, I decided that my little noontime lark was over.
