The legendary Morrissey paid a visit to Conan this week to perform his brand new (as yet unreleased) song People Are the Same Everywhere and in case you missed it, you can check out video of his performance below. I was very lucky to see Moz perform a stellar concert performance last week so I’ve been on a bit of a Morrissey high for the last few days. I had such a great time at the show that I want to share some of that joy with all y’all. Click below to check out Morrissey‘s performance on Conan last night to see what I’m talking about. More »

The interview isn’t too long but he does discuss a few things and gives some very interesting answers. Did you know that the thought of doing a variety show with The Muppets gives him a boner? It’s true … read on below. More »

Britwick Gettin' Hitched?
2011 has been a pretty significantly stellar year for our dear Britney Spears and in just a couple of days, she will turn 30 years old. According to People magazine, her year is reportedly about to become even more significant … ‘cuz their sources tell them that Jason Trawick is planning to pop the question.

Buffy the Vampire Layer?
Welp … it was bound to happen sooner or later. The iconic TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer is getting the porn parody treatment. That’s right folks, the characters that we all know and love — Buffy Summers, Angel, Willow Rosenberg, Xander Harris and more — are featured in a XXX pornographic video that will lampoon the BtVS story.

BUT, Murray Will Likely Only Serve 2 Years in County Jail
Earlier this month we learned that Conrad Murray was found guilty of the manslaughter death of Michael Jackson and today we learn the fate of his conviction. Murray was back in court this morning to be sentenced for the crime he was convicted of and the ruling judge decided to throw the book at him. The maximum punishment for manslaughter is 4 years in prison … and that is exactly the sentence that Murray got slapped with. BUT, not so fast … because of a new law in California, Murray will NOT go to prison — he’ll go to jail instead. Nor will he serve the full 4 years — he’ll likely be out after 2 years. In addition, Murray has been ordered to pay restitution of about $900. So that works out to … 2 years in jail and $900 for the death of Michael Jackson. I guess justice has been served. More »

Last night I got to hang out with my friends Erin and Halli for the whole night and altho we didn’t have a plan we ended up having a pretty fun evening together. The ladies took me to 5 Guys Burgers & Fries so I could find out what all the fuss is about and man, was that a great way to the start the night. The rest of the night was spent walking all over Manhattan enjoying the 70 degree weather. We checked out some of the storefront windows newly decorated for Xmas and ended up at our fave Mexican restaurant for margaritas and sangria. All in all, we had a fantastic night. More »

Peace the Spork Out
Back in August we learned that former Real Housewives of NYC star Bethenny Frankel had scored a development deal for her own talk show. As much as I LOVE Bethenny, my initial reaction to news of a talk show was … well, of no real interest. While I find her fun to watch in a reality TV sense, I can’t really see how a daily talk show would appeal to me. Well, apparently the bosses at all the major networks agree because The Hollywood Reporter is reporting this week that Bethenny‘s talk show is dead … dunzo before it could even get off the ground. Apparently, the show was shopped all over town and no one was interested. Get out the spork, y’all … it sounds like it’s time to peace out Bethenny‘s dreams of being a talk show host. More »

Steven R. McQueen, the grandson of famed actor Steve McQueen and star of The Vampire Diaries, was spotted recently on a shirtless jog with his pet pooch … and the photos of the 23 year old lad are worth checking out. On TVD, Steven plays the younger brother of protagonist Elena (played by Nina Dobrev) and since last season has gone thru a bit of a growth spurt from boy to man. As you can see below, McQueen has beefed up considerably for the role. US Grade A hunk!
What I like most about these photos is how normal Steven looks … he’s fit but not starved. Throw in the adorable dog and it’s almost cute overkill. For the most part, McQueen manages to fly under the radar … but if he continues to go out for shirtless jogs, well, he’s bound to get a bit more attention. I approve of the practice of shirtless jogging. Here’s hoping it’ll become Steven‘s new thing ;)

So … OMG … after I got to see The Cure live in concert last Monday on the first night of the US leg of their Reflections Tour, I thought for sure I had seen the best Cure concert of all time. It turns out that I was wrong. Because after I got to see The Cure live in concert again last night, I know for a fact that last night’s show as a wee bit better than the one I saw last week. To be honest, I did not plan on seeing The Cure here in NYC because the shows sold out in minutes. But David’s sister Eden is a big Cure fan with a birthday coming up and I decided to see what aftermarket ticket options were available. Long story short, we found 4th row seats for a very reasonable price! And let me tell you, being that close to the stage really makes for a much more enjoyable concert experience. More »

Last week we learned that the Justin Bieber Paternity case was back on after it was supposedly dismissed for, like, 5 minutes. As you may recall, Bieber vowed to fight the claims that he fathered a child with one of his fans by promising to submit to a DNP paternity test. Well, today we are learning that The Biebs has already taken the DNA test while in New Jersey this weekend so … now that he has done his part, it’s up to the alleged babymama to provide a DNA sample from the baby in question. It’s on now, y’all. More »

Yesterday was very chilly, very rainy day here in La so it was difficult to want to dig out from under the warm blankets at home and venture out into the wide world … but venture we did to attend a small engagement party for our recently betrothed friends Loy and Ryan. The happy couple hosted about a thousand of their friends at their home yesterday so that we could all celebrate their coming nuptials. It was so amazing getting to spend time with Loy and Ryan and it was really nice meeting many of their friends. It may have been cold and dreary outside but their home was full of love and warmth.

Taylor Swift Walks Away with 3 Trophies
Last night, at the Nokia Theater at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles, CA, the 2011 American Music Awards were handed out for excellence in music … or something. Like the People’s Choice Awards, IMHO, the AMAs have become less of an achievement event and more of a promo event. Still, crystal pyramid trophies were handed out to lucky winners and country popstar Taylor Swift was the luckiest of them all. Taylor was honored with 3 awards — including the big Artist of the Year award — while others, like Nicki Minaj, walked away with two awards … and others still, like Jennifer Lopez, nabbed one award. Click below to see some photos from last night’s festivities and read some deets on who won what the awards show that you may have missed. More »

According to 'Life & Style' Magazine
Back in April we learned the happy news that Kristin Cavallari and footballer Jay Cutler got themselves engaged to be wed. In the weeks that followed, we heard all about the couple’s plans for a lavish 2012 wedding. Those happy reports came to an abrupt end in July when it was reported that the engagement was off due to Jay‘s dumping of Kristin. Today I am happy to report that the couple are re-engaged to be married … at least according to Life & Style magazine. So, I suppose, congrats are re-in order for the re-happy couple. More »

Last week we learned the very sad news that rapper Heavy D (née Dwight Arrington Myers) passed away suddenly at the young age of 44. Today we learn that Heavy was memorialized and laid to final rest yesterday in NYC, NY in front of family and famous friends — even President Barack Obama sent along his condolences. Reverend Al Sharpton presided over yesterday’s funeral service and friends like User, P. Diddy, Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith and others were in attendance to give their final goodbyes. Altho it was very obviously a sad day, I understand Heavy D‘s amazing life was celebrated and lauded for what he offered the world. More »
We Are The Champions !!!
5 years after global soccer superstar David Beckham moved to the US to play professional soccer for the LA Galaxy, the Los Angeles soccer team FINALLY managed to secure a Major League Soccer Championship! The Galaxy took on the Houston Dynamo for the championship title at the Home Depot Center here in Carson, CA last night and managed to end the 2011 season with a big win. Galaxy captain (and game MVP) Landon Donovan had the honor of scoring the winning goal, handing the LA Galaxy the championship title that they’ve been looking for (ever since Becks joined the team). Considering last night was Becks‘s final game for the Galaxy of his 5 year contract, he couldn’t have hoped for a better ending.

Back in May of this year, Oprah Winfrey signed off on the final episode EVER of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Since that time, Oprah has been trying to make her OWN network take-off and find an audience. Unfortunately for Oprah, she has not been very successful. Today we learn that Oprah is now planning to make her return to TV with a new talk show. Now, whether she is coming back to TV because she misses being on the air or if she is lookin’ to undo some of the failures she’s endured in the past few months (or a little of both), she is coming BACK! Are YOU ready for some more Oprah? More »

Altho the George Clooney and Ryan Gosling film The Ides of March came out months ago, I never got around to seeing it and sadly totally forgot all about it. Thankfully, theaters in LA play these sorts of movies longer than most cities and David and I got the chance to see it at the posh Landmark Theater in West LA, last night. To be honest, I had heard not great things about the film so I wasn’t too excited. The only reason I agreed to go, I must confess, was because it was showing in a movie theater with couch seating. I am SO glad I decided to go because, man, this film is really fantastic! More »

Ashton Kutcher, who we just found out is divorcing his wife Demi Moore, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issues of Women’s Health and Men’s Health magazines. In his coverstory interview with Women’s Health, Ashton is quoted giving out relationship advice. Um, yeah.

At this week’s protest in Union Square in NYC, actress Anne Hathaway was spotted in the crowd of protestors.

Last night David and I were invited to an early screening of The Muppets movie at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, CA and we jumped at the chance to attend. For a year now, I’ve been anxious and curious about this new Muppets film.

Last year British comedian Ricky Gervais hosted the 2011 Golden Globe Awards and did, by pretty much all accounts, an amazing job. What made Ricky‘s hosting performance so spectacular is that he managed to poke fun at pretty much everyone in Hollywood, making the jokes that we all laugh at amongst ourselves but no one in Hollywood really dares to say in public. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who are responsible for the Golden Globes, were among the very folks who did not appreciate Gervais‘s biting comic stylings. BUT, even they could not deny that Ricky delivered some of the best ratings and reviews that the Golden Globes ever enjoyed. And for that reason, Ricky was asked to host the upcoming 2012 GGs and he gladly accepted. More »

"I know I deserve a big fat 'I told you so' from everyone"
It would seem that tattoo artist (and notorious bad decision maker) Kat Von D finally wizened up and came to her senses about her relationship with notorious cheater (and, IMHO, scuzzbag) Jesse James. Apparently it took, according to Kat herself, 19 confirmed instances of Jessie‘s cheating on her to make her realize that maybe he really isn’t the man for her. Kat posted a lengthy letter on her official Facebook profile explaining her enlightenment where Jesse‘s concerned. I, personally, could care less about their relationship … but I am impressed that she is sharing so much personal insight about her disastrous relationship with James.

"It was disgusting. I could see everything, absolutely everything."
Kevin Federline has been known to offend people when he is sober and fully clothed so it comes to NO SURPRISE TO ME WHATSOEVER to hear that he reportedly offended hotel guests after a drunken night of naked stupidity. According to the report, K-Fed got liquored up before he stripped down and bared his body (his big body, mind you) to other hotel guests. I can’t think of many things more horrible than the sight of nekkid K-Fed so I can completely understand why people may have gotten upset. More »

Some of these may come to a surprise, others you’ve known about, but these high-profile stars didn’t always have the names they now use. Some changed their calling cards to have a better stage handle. Some did it for more recognition — and others for less. And then there are those who swapped proper nouns to distinguish themselves from famous family members. But of course the names we know them by now suit them well, and often their original names just sound … weird. More »
