Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino Wants To Sell You Some Work-Out Supplements

Hustler

Mike The Situation Sorrentino, one of the stars of MTV‘s reality TV series Jersey Shore, made an in-person appearance at a GNC Store in NYC, NY today to launch a pre-work-out supplement called NoX Edge. Here are some photos from today’s event:

Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has got an edge! The reality TV sensation, famous for his rock-hard abs, will endorse NoX Edge, the world’s first pre-workout chewable tablet, and take part in the product’s launch with an autograph signing and meet and greet at the 57th Street NYC location of GNC on July 1. Prior to its national release, 300 units of NoX Edge will be available only at the GNC store located at 28 West 57th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenue) for this special preview event. NoX Edge will be sold exclusively in GNC retail stores and on www.gnc.com and www.noxedge.com. Sorrentino, who has been taking NoX Edge for three months, attributes the supplement with the added energy and increased muscle needed to enhance his signature pumped-up physique. The event, which takes place mere weeks before the July 29th season two premiere of Jersey Shore, will kick-off Sorrentino’s July 4th birthday weekend when “The Sitch” turns 29.

HMMM … I mean … yeah. I guess it makes sense for “The Sitch” to cash in as much as possible on his new found fame. It has already been reported that he will be releasing his own fragrance as well as his own clothing line so why not his own work-out supplement. I suppose the implication is that if you pop these pills you can get sick abs like The Situation. Does this sound like an appealing prospect to you?

Kellan Lutz Shows Off His Undies In Toronto

Show off

Last month we saw photos of Twilight hottie Kellan Lutz showing off his Calvin Klein undies at an in-store appearance at Macy’s Herald Square in NYC, NY and today we get to see the lad doing the same at The Bay department store in Toronto, CA this weekend. While I really wish these in-store events to promote CK Underwear were a bit sexier, the photos are at least kinda cute:


You will note that Kellan has, once again, dyed his hair black … it was just a few days ago we saw him rockin’ lighter, brown hair on the set of his upcoming new film Immortals. I understand the 2010 Much Music Awards are happening tonight in Toronto, Canada … I’ll bet we’ll be seeing homeboy here showing off his CK Undies on the red carpet of that event, too! Meh, it’s a living … I’m totally fine with him showing off anything at all he likes :)

Sir Patrick Stewart Attends The 2010 Philadelphia Wizard World

Good Knight

Last weekend we saw photos of the now Sir Patrick Stewart kneeling before regina Queen Elizabeth II as he was being knighted into the Order of the British Empire and this weekend we get to see photos of Sir Patrick chillin’ with American comic book geeks while proudly rockin’ the Team England soccer jersey (in support of his home team in the 2010 World Cup soccer tournament) at the Philadelphia Convention Center yesterday for the 2010 Philadelphia Wizard World comic convention. LOL … what a difference a week makes:

Famed Star of Star Trek, X-Men Franchises To Sign Autographs and Speak Saturday & Sunday!, June 12th& 13th! Patrick Stewart, known to legions of fans as “Professor Charles Xavier” in the X-Men film series and “Captain Jean-Luc Picard” on the television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” , will attend the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con, June 11-13 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, it was confirmed today by Wizard CEO Gareb Shamus. The Emmy-nominated actor, who has performed in more than 100 television and film roles, is one of several actors to appear in all three “X-Men” films: X-Men (2000), X2 (2003) and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). His role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, which started on Next Generation, placed him in four Star Trek films: Generations (1994) First Contact (1996), Insurrection (1998) and Nemesis (2002). He also served as the voice of numerous animated characters in movies like Chicken Little and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, as well as popular TV shows such as “Family Guy” and “American Dad.” “Patrick Stewart is an international movie, TV and stage icon, and just his presence shows our commitment to the fans and the city of Philadelphia.” said Shamus. “With his addition to our already star-studded guest lineup, this makes Philadelphia the largest Star Trek celebration in the country, and will push the Philadelphia Comic Con to the forefront of the industry.” Stewart, who is scheduled to appear both Saturday and Sunday, will meet fans and sign autographs at the event. He and the Wizard World team are currently planning programming panels, which will be announced shortly. Check back at www.wizardworld.com for further updates.

It’s amazing how a man of such stature can make any look appear regal and proper. I kinda love that Sir Patrick decided to show his support for England by wearing this jersey yesterday … he’s a good English lad. Knight or no Knight, Sir Patrick Stewart is honestly one of the coolest actors alive … I just love him. If you’re in the Philly area, you might still have the chance to meet the man himself at Philadelphia Wizard World today :D

Jennifer Lopez Wants You To ‘Be Extraordinary’

J. Lo teams up with the Boys and Girls Club of America

Jennifer Lopez, Ms. Jenny from the Block herself, was on hand to make an in-person appearance in Times Square, NY today to unveil her new billboard as part of the Be Extraordinary campaign for The Boys and Girls Club of America. Because J. Lo benefited from the Bronx chapter of The Boys and Girls Club when she was just a young’n, she was happy to be part of this new campaign … check it out:

Jennifer Lopez had some help getting into the entertainment industry. An alum of the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx, Lopez credits the club’s “K company” performing arts program with teaching her to sing and dance. “When I started going there, it was the first time I sang, danced and performed in front of an audience. I wanted to be there every day,” Lopez said Thursday at the Times Square unveiling of a Boys and Girls Club billboard featuring a throwback picture of her as a child. “They taught me how to be disciplined and be perseverant and to believe in my God-given talents. They encouraged me to be great in whatever I decided to do. And they taught me that I could do whatever I wanted.” Her billboard message says it all: “Be Extraordinary.” And, she told PEOPLE, she may even bring her twins back to the Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx. “I think it’s really, really important to work hard … Being able to accomplish something with dedication and hard work and commitment. That is something I would like them to learn as well,” she said. Lopez is among 25 celebrities, including Denzel Washington, Ashanti, and Mario Lopez, participating in the BGCA’s youth advocacy campaign. “When Denzel asked me to participate, I had to say yes. I am honored and delighted to be part of the campaign,” she said. “Please join us in helping all kids be great.”

OMG, how much do I LOVE this pic of J. Lo as a wee little girl. Wanna see it close-up? Check it out, along with a newer promo pic for the Boys and Girls Club, after the jump … More »

Listen: Kylie Minogue, ‘Aphrodite’ Mega-Mix

Just a taste

Yesterday we got to see photos and video from Kylie Minogue‘s appearance at Splash Bar in NYC late Friday night/early Saturday morning and today we get to see video that features a few snippets from her upcoming new album Aphrodite (due out next month). Kylie debuted a mega-mix of song snippets from her new album and an industrious fan managed to record it on video UPDATED with a studio version of the mega-mix:


I realize the sound quality isn’t the best but we do get to hear some of what the album will sound like when it gets released in just a few weeks. Kylie is always so good to her fans, I’m not surprised at all that she was happy to preview tracks from her new album. This is a great tease for what is sure to be a FANTASTIC album. I can’t wait to hear all of the songs in full … but, for now, this mega-mix video is a nice treat.

Conan O’Brien Returns To TV On November 8, 2010

The new king of TBS?

Conan O’Brien and George Lopez were among the stars of the TBS network to appear at a Turner Entertainment Network upfront event in NYC earlier today to promote their selling power to advertisers. Conan performed live on stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom as part of the pitch … and he also announced that his new late night talk show will debut on TBS on November 8. Here are a few photos from and some deets about today’s TEN event:

In the end, Conan O’Brien will have been gone from the airwaves for 289 days: the time between his final “Tonight Show” episode and the launch of his TBS late-night program. O’Brien’s new show will debut Monday, November 8, according to multiple news reports. The announcement was made at the TBS upfront presentation Wednesday (May 19) at the Hammerstein Theatre in New York City. O’Brien himself was on hand for the event, cracking jokes and even breaking into song. “The plot to ‘Lost’ is more plausible than my last year at NBC,” he quipped at one point. “I really believe in cable television,” he continued. “I do not want to live in a country with less than five ESPN networks.” The floppy-haired comedian also busted into a revamped version of Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again,” changing the lyrics to croon, “I just want to be on my own show again.” Not for 173 more days, CoCo! That his new show will air on TBS, rather than Fox, came as a huge surprise to even media insiders when it was announced in April. O’Brien’s reps were deep in negotiations with Fox until the talk-show host made a stunning reversal and decided to take his talents to cable. The show will air Mondays through Thursdays at 11 p.m. ET/PT. “Lopez Tonight,” which currently airs at 11 p.m., will shift to midnight. “Conan has been the comedic voice for a generation,” Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks, said at the time. “TBS already has a huge audience of young comedy lovers, and Conan’s show will give these fans even more reasons to watch our network.” During Wednesday’s upfront, Conan joked to his new boss, “Steve, thanks for the blank creative check … you fool!”

At last! We have a date to circle on our calendars for Conan‘s return to late night TV. Altho November 8 seems like a long time away, I know we’ll be talking about his TBS debut in no time. I have to hand it to TBS for pulling off this coup to snag Conan … I think he is going to do wonders for their network. Coupled with George Lopez, Conan is sure to make waves in the late night battle for ratings. I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

Kellan Lutz Shows Off His Undies At Macy’s

Mighty Whities

Twilight actor and Calvin Klein Underwear model Kellan Lutz made a special in-person appearance at Macy’s department store in Herald Square here in NYC, NY yesterday to promote CK Underwear by showing off the CK Underwear that he wore to the event:


Very unfortunately, Kellan did not strip down to his skivvies to show off his undies but he was so kind as to give himself a wedgie to show ‘em off. I understand that Kellan was sweet enough to sign boxes of underwear for and pose with the folks who came out to see him at Macy’s yesterday. I guess since he is waiting to hear whether or not he’ll be featured in the upcoming Twilight film Breaking Dawn, he might as well keep himself bizzy with his other money-making endeavors.

Eminem & Jay-Z Announce Massive Hometown Concerts

The two rap giants will play Detroit and NYC in September

Rap superstars Eminem and Jay-Z made a joint appearance at Comerica Park (home of the Detroit Tigers baseball team) in Detroit, MI last night during the Tigers vs. Yankees game to announce plans for two massive concerts to take place this September at Comerica Park in Detroit (Em‘s hometown) and at Yankee Stadium NYC (Jay‘s hometown). Here are photos from their appearance/announcement last night and the deets of what went down:

In a summer that’s already overflowing with superstar concerts, hometown rapper Eminem — with some help from an out-of-town friend — is set to deliver what may be the season’s biggest concert event. Eminem and Jay-Z will perform together Sept. 2 at Comerica Park, the pair announced Wednesday during the Detroit Tigers-New York Yankees game at Comerica Park. They will trade off and play Yankee Stadium in Jay-Z’s hometown of New York on Sept. 13. Em and Jay-Z — each sporting their respective team’s logo — made the announcement live on Fox Sports Detroit during the top of the fourth inning, following an announcement on ESPN during the game’s national broadcast. “(We’re) just trying to find ways we can collaborate and stretch the genre out of hip-hop and make it large,” Jay-Z said. “Playing stadiums, that’s new for hip-hop” … The Detroit concert — which Em teased on his Twitter account early Wednesday — will mark Eminem’s biggest hometown show since he performed at Comerica Park in 2005 … Jay-Z, meanwhile, performed a sold-out show at the Palace of Auburn Hills in March. He also performed at Eastern Michigan University’s Convocation Center in October 2009, a month after the release of his “Blueprint 3″ album. The Comerica Park show is the only outdoor stadium concert booked in Metro Detroit this summer. Ticket information is not yet available. Wednesday’s concert announcement coincided with the news that “Not Afraid,” the first single from Eminem’s new album “Recovery,” will debut at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. “Not Afraid” marks only the 16th time a song has debuted at No. 1 in the nearly 52-year history of the chart. The song is Eminem’s third No. 1 song on the Hot 100, following “Lose Yourself” and “Crack a Bottle.” “Recovery” is due out June 22.

This is just … fantastic news!! Detroit Rock City always gets the biggest acts to play the biggest shows and this show may be the biggest yet. Eminem and Jay-Z are the biggest rappers in the game, a show where they co-headline is bound to be epic. I’m telling you right now, I’m gonna do everything I can to be at the Detroit show on September 2 … count on it. After the jump, check out video of Em and Jay‘s announcement on ESPN last night to hear the deets straight from the guys themselves … More »

Helen Mirren Gets Immortalized In Wax

Even better than the real thing?

Famed British actress Helen Mirren is the latest celeb immortalized in wax by Madam Tussaud’s Wax Musuem. Mirren was on hand for an in-person appearance at Madam Tussaud’s in London, England this week for the unveiling of the wax effigy created in her honor. I have to say, I love me some Helen Mirren but … this is one of those rare occasions where the wax statue kinda looks better than the real person:

Helen Mirren’s famous name in showbiz has been honored with a wax figure at Madame Tussauds in London, England. On Tuesday, May 11, the actress has revealed the replica of her for the first time, accompanied by her director husband Taylor Hackford. Wearing a red dress, the 64-year-old beauty poses next to the art work which is dressed in a long black gown. Taylor later joins her to admire the wax figure and lands a kiss on the cheek of the replica while Helen acts like she is angry to him. Helen Mirren was recently named one of the most beautiful women in the world on the list compiled by Wizard Jeans. She secured the sixth position, while the top spot was snatched by Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz.

Kudos to the artisans at Madame Tussaud’s because they have truly outdone themselves this time. Helen is a beautiful women, I really love her entirely … but this wax statue is really damn good. When I first found the photos, I thought the Helen in the black dress was the real Helen. We’ve seen some funky wax statues before but this one has to be among the best ever. What do y’all think … is this a wax statue worth of representing Helen Mirren?
