Hot and Heavy
Yesterday we learned that Madonna, Queen of the Universe, likes to work out strenuously while on vacation … but today we also learn that she likes to keep her window shades wide open while on vacay so that prying eyes can see her making out with her much younger toyboy Brahim Zaibat. Maddy and Brahim got themselves pretty hot and heavy (but in a cute way) while they holidayed with family in Antibes, France this week … take a look below. More »

Twilight star Taylor Lautner, who will be making his leading man debut in Abduction this Fall, is featured on the cover of the new issue of VMan magazine. Lautner‘s particular issue of VMan is devoted to “masculinity” … so naturally they chose a barely legal young man for its cover. Makes sense, yeah? Anyways, Taylor talks to VMan about his life away from the Twilight cameras in his coverstory interview … excerpts of which you can read below. More »

So … our grand plans to hang out with Emma and Josh last night never worked out. David and I got totally wrapped up in moving and unpacking stuff. We still had a bit of leftover stuff to remove from our old condo so that’s pretty much how we spent our evening/night. Despite the fact that our old condo is just one floor below our new one, you’d be surprised at how quickly going up and down the stairs over and over again gets old. Ugh. BUT … I am happy to report that we finally got it ALL done. More »

Yesterday afternoon a report from TMZ set millions of tween hearts practically into cardiac arrest when it was reported that popstar Justin Bieber was involved in an auto accident. Thankfully, the little prince was totally uninjured in the “crash” which basically resulted in nothing at all.

TMZ, of course, managed to get photos of Beiber in his unharmed Ferrari, which you can check out below. More »

While the prevalent belief among most people is that MTV really dropped the ball with their very short, very disappointing tribute to Britney Spears last night, it looks like her Femme Fatale Tour dancers have picked up the slack and have put together a tribute very fitting for the our dear Britney.

MTV News managed to sit down with Britney Spears after the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards last night and they asked her to reveal which song off her latest album Femme Fatale will be released as her next single.

As I mentioned yesterday, most of my Sunday was all about the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Altho I chose not to work the red carpet this year, the folks at MTV (and the lovely Tamika in particular, love and thanks to her) still hooked me up with a ticket to attend the show. I had to pick up my ticket pretty early in the day so as soon as I got my work done, I made my way downtown to procure my VMA ticket. I had some time to kill before the actual show so I met up with Ollie for a brunch hang session. By 5pm, I had to get back to the Nokia Theater for the MTV VMA show … and, well, you know how that played out. I did manage to snap some fun photos from my seat inside the theater … which you can check out below. More »

Highs & Lows
As you should be well aware by now, MTV hosted it’s annual Video Music Awards celebration last night at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles, CA and by pretty much all accounts, the show wasn’t the best one ever. Because there was no host, the entire show felt messy and disjointed. Some of the performances were stellar (Adele and Beyoncé, I’m lookin’ at you), others were less than stellar (take your pick of the rest) and the show overall just didn’t mesh for me. I was happy for some of the award winners (Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj, lookin’ at you) and very disappointed and offended by others (in particular I’m referring to the blatant and unabashed homophobe that I cannot bring myself to even mention by name who won Best New Artist), which left me with an overall feeling of …. malaise over the whole thing. Click below to see some of the photos from last night’s fete and try to focus on the positives with me, ok? More »

Cuddle Time for Justena
One of the cuter moments of the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards last night was when pre-show co-host Selena Gomez interviewed her pop star boyfriend Justin Bieber on the red carpet before the show. Let’s forget for a second that Justin looked like … well … a lesbian … and focus on the cute interplay between the little lovebirds. Selena tried to keep her interview professional and, for the most part, Justin obliged … but he couldn’t resist ambushing his girl with a big smooch on camera at the end of their chat. Check out the video below. More »
Last night, MTV paid “tribute” to our dear Britney Spears at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards by presenting her with the coveted Video Vanguard Award, which honors artists for outstanding lifetime video music achievement. When it was announced that Britney would be receiving the Video Vanguard Award this year, there was much discussion about how MTV would pay tribute to her contributions to pop music, pop culture and MTV in general. The tribute she actually received was partly cute, VERY SHORT and mostly overshadowed by others. I must confess … I was extremely disappointed and very letdown by the “tribute” that Britney got last night … but, in the end, am generally happy that she was honored at all with the Video Vanguard Award.

Beyoncé took to the red carpet of the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night and needed to get a little something off her chest … and she did so by showing off her burgeoning baby bump.

"every once in a while the angsty teenager in me just blurts out some raw honesty"
Last night, one day before the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards airs live on MTV tonight, Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine took to his official Twitter profile to publicly denounce the VMAs. In an effort to release some “angsty teenager … raw honesty”, Levine blasted MTV for not genuinely caring about music telling the VMAs that they can “fuck” off. This rant seems a bit odd considering that Maroon 5 won an MTV Video Music Award back in 2004, a fact that MTV cheekily reminded Levine of in response to his Twitter rant yesterday. More »

After much recuperating yesterday afternoon/evening, I finally managed to rally enough to get out of the house last night. I met up with Emma and Josh and Emma’s mom and her boyfriend for a late dinner at Upper West in Santa Monica, CA to help Josh celebrate the end of a very successful play run. Josh’s play Blood Wedding ends this weekend and, by all accounts, he has been hailed as THE star of the show … so we were happy to toast to his success last night. After dinner, at around midnight, I made my way to the Hollywood Palladium to see superstar DJ Deadmau5 live in concert. I have to say, I went to the show without any expectations and ended up leaving completely WOWed! It was a great show, no question.

Boys of Summer
This weekend gave us Southern Californians another idyllically beautiful day to enjoy … and that meant yet another opportunity for David Beckham and his young sons — Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David — to soak up the sun and catch some waves at their favorite beach in Malibu, CA. As some of you may be well aware, Summer vacation is quickly coming to an end and very soon, the Beckham boys will have to say goodbye to the beach and hello to the school classroom. But, before the Beckhams have to bid farewell to the beach for the Summer, daddy Becks decided to play photographer in order to snap some fun photos of the boys as they played in surf. More »

Back in June we learned that Disney was planning to re-release their animated classic film The Lion King in 3D this September and altho we are still a few weeks away from its release, I was lucky enough to attend an early screening of the film last night here in LA. The last time I saw The Lion King in a theater was over 10 years ago and the last time I saw it in 3D was on stage on Broadway. Needless to say, I was very excited to see the film last night. I am happy to report that all of the Disney magic is still intact … and the added 3D elements just make it all that much better. I loved it entirely. More »

'The World' is DUNZO for Paris!
I’ve got some bad news for the handful of people (and I do mean handful) who watched the Oxygen reality TV series The World According to Paris … according to new reports out this week, the show has been cancelled and will not return for season 2. Despite the fact that Paris Hilton did EVERYTHING (and I mean everything) to try and promote the show (including making an appearance on The View to get publicly chided by Barbara Walters for being a frivolous dolt), it seems that people just don’t care to waste their time watching her show … at all! It looks like Hilton‘s attempt to try and reclaim some of her fading fame was a complete failure. Sad. More »
Beyoncé Brings the HEAT
Beyoncé surprised fans yesterday by releasing, seemingly out of the blue, a brand new music video for her new single 1+1 from her latest album 4. As you may recall, 1+1 was one of the first new tracks that we got to hear from 4 before it was released but it was not officially issued as a single … until now.

Because it had been YEARS since I last saw Fiona in concert, I jumped at the chance to see her perform live once again. Because the show as a benefit concert, Fiona performed a handful of her own songs (On The Bound, Fast As You Can and Extraordinary Machine) and then a bunch of covers of old classics and standards. While the structure of the show was a bit … odd … Fiona‘s singing was as lush and wonderful as I remembered. More »

Earlier today a report from In Touch Weekly magazine came out that made the claim that Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith are separating and some ridiculous mention was made that Jada was having some sort of affair with her Hawthorne co-star Marc Anthony (who, himself, is newishly separated from wife Jennifer Lopez). Jada has issued a statement to Entertainment Tonight shooting down reports that she is philandering with Marc Anthony … but she very purposely gave a NO COMMENT on reports that she is separating from Will.

So … as I’m sure you are all WELL aware, I was very much MIA all day long today. I managed to get one post published here on the blog before my internet connection got cut off in transition for our new service. I was told that the downtime might be minimal but I knew better than that. I decided to do some stuff around the house since I couldn’t blog for most of the day … and my errands led me to an impromptu trip to Ikea. I’ve been kicking around getting a new piece of simple furniture to house my growing vinyl collection and, well, today turned out to be that day. No trip to Ikea isn’t without it’s problems but boy, did I have some problems today. Not only did I have to drive out to Ikea once … I ended up having to do it TWICE in the same afternoon. OY! More »

New mom (for the 4th time) Victoria Beckham ventured out in public this weekend for the first time since she gave birth to her newborn daughter Harper Seven last month. As you may recall, hubby David Beckham posted a beautiful photo of mother and child on his official Facebook profile about a week after Harper was born but that photo was snapped in the couple’s home. Ever the trooper, VB presumably got out of the house A.) because she was likely growing stir crazy and B.) because she has much to do to prepare for NY Fashion Week … which is quickly approaching.

So … we’re moved. After a very long day of up and down and up and down (by our movers, mind you), David and I successfully moved all (and I mean ALL) of our belongings from our old condo on the second floor to our new condo on the third floor. The layouts are exactly the same but now we have hardwood floors, a great wet bar and a MORE SKY view ;D But, despite that this move was easier, it was still — as I’m sure you can imagine — harrowing.

Reported Photos of the Assault are Described as "Horrific"
Earlier this week we learned the shocking news that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong hanged himself in an apparent suicide and today we are learning of more reported details about the events that led up to his death. Many people are focusing on claim that the pressures of reality TV are what led to Armstrong‘s suicide but I am not convinced. Russell Armstrong himself had admitted to physically harming his estranged wife Taylor Armstrong and even plead no contest to charges that he physically assaulted his previous wife as well. A new report from TMZ claims that Russell so brutally assaulted Taylor a few months ago that she had to be hospitalized so that the damage to her face could be repaired. If true, this is the kind of man that people have been mourning all week long. More »

In the wake of the shocking suicide of Russell Armstrong, one of the featured husbands on The Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls, a new report by The Hollywood Reporter claims that Bravo has decided to postpone the September 5 premiere of the upcoming second season of the show.

Suri Holmes-Cruise, the only begotten child of the union of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, may be rollin’ in thousands and thousands of dollars of expensive clothing, shoes and accessories but at the core of her being, she is still a little girl (yes, I’m finally convinced she is not a robot or an alien from Mars). And because Suri is a little girl, that means she likely has a deep love of dolls (tho, it is neither uncommon nor out of the ordinary for a little girl to prefer trucks or some other “boy toys”). While out and about this week with her parents, Suri was in the company of one of her dolls … a horrifyingly, terrifying little thing. More »

Wow … shocking news to pass along today. TMZ is reporting that Russell Armstrong, one of the featured husbands on the Bravo TV reality TV series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has committed suicide. As you may know, if you watched the show, Russell and his wife Taylor Armstrong seemed to have a, let’s say, tenuous relationship as it was featured on the show last year.

Previews for the upcoming second season seem to show Taylor in a very emotional state talking about the circumstances of her abuse.

Adam Levine, Maroon 5 frontman and vocal judge on The Voice, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Out magazine. Despite the fact that Adam tells Out that there is no way to “hide [his] straightness”, he sees no problem with playing with the conventions of sexual ambiguity when it comes to fronting a rock band (in the same way that David Bowie and Mick Jagger do). Adam, in his Out magazine interview, is very vocal about how he does NOT like the way American Idol treats its gay performers and believes his show, The Voice, handles gay performers much better. It’s actually an interesting interview … and the photos are must see. Check it all out below. More »

According to a new report from the not-always-reliable British publication The Daily Mail, plans are supposedly in the works to bring the hugely successful HBO series Sex and the City back to television. According to the unsubstantiated report, Sarah Jessica Parker and co-stars Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall are all on board with the return of the TV series … all that is needed, the report claims, is for series creator Darren Star to get on board as well. Now, I do not personally believe this report just yet … but if, strangely enough, this turns out to be true … I will be ECSTATICALLY happy. More »

On Thursday night, after so many recommendations from friends, David and I attended a performance of the NYC interactive theatrical production Sleep No More. I loved the show SO MUCH and felt that I NEEDED to see/experience more, I decided to go see the show again last night. Because Sleep No More is closing next month and my next visit to NYC isn’t until November, last night was my last chance to see it … so when a ticket became available, I jumped on it. I have to tell you … as much as I loved the show the first time, I really REALLY enjoyed it much better the second time … because I knew what to look for and was able to customize my experience. Trust me, this is a show that YOU MUST SEE. Read on if you want to hear more about my second time around. More »

As I mentioned earlier, David and I got to see the new off-Broadway production of Rent here in NYC and as a HUGE Renthead, I was excited and a bit worried about seeing the show. I’ve seen the show well over 30 times so it holds a place dear in my heart. I knew that there would have to be some changes made to the show but my hope was that the spirit and soul of the show would remain intact. Thankfully, yes, the numerous changes to the show did NOT change the emotional impact of the show. While I didn’t love every change, I did enjoy the show overall very much. More »

This week a petition started going around online asking that the Sesame Workshop (ie. The Children’s Television Workshop) afford the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie a same-sex marriage.
