Oh Baby BABY!
Pop princess Selena Gomez paid homage to Queen of EVERYTHING Britney Spears during a charity concert for UNICEF in NYC last night … and my friend Bradley Stern from Muumuse was there to witness it in person. Selena performed a really fabulous cover of our dear Britney‘s smash hit song Baby One More Time and Bradley got it all on video … which you can watch in full above. Trust me, you will LOVE this performance … enjoy :)
Demi Lovato has filmed a video of her performance of the song Angels Among Us in honor of the people and children who lost their lives in Newtown, CT on December 14. Very simply, this song is intended to memorialize those how lost their lives and is, IMHO, a stunningly beautiful tribute to their memory. I cannot imagine what Xmas must be like for the people of Newtown, I can only hope that the love and support of so many people can help ease their pain of loss.
Ever since we first heard the horrific news out of Newtown, CT Friday morning we’ve been hearing a lot about the shooter and his family. But we haven’t been hearing much about the victims who lost their lives on that fateful day. The New York Times has published the names of the 27 people who died in the attack and I think it’s very important for all of us to read their names and maybe pause for a moment or two in remembrance.

In the wake of the tragic elementary school shooting that left 20 children and 7 adults dead early Friday morning, Saturday Night Live chose to open its holiday episode last night with a live performance of the Xmas song Silent Night by The Manhattan Children’s Chorus. No jokes, no skits … just a group of children singing a lovely holiday hymn. It was a powerful way to open the show and a poignant tribute to the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School. Well done, SNL. Very well done.
The Class of 2013
Back in October we learned which musicians were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and today we learn who got in as the Class of 2013. Artists like Donna Summer, Albert King and Randy Newman are joined by groups like Rush, Public Enemy and Heart … who are joined by non-performing producers like Quincy Jones and Ahmet Ertegun as members of the Rock Hall Class of 2013. Woot!! More »
Ode to Fiancée
Back in August we learned the somewhat surprising news that singer Avril Lavigne got herself engaged to be married to fellow Canadian singer Chad Kroeger of Nickelback fame. It looks like Avril is a big fan of Kroeger‘s band because she decided to cover their biggest hit for the soundtrack of a new film. Avril has recorded her version of How You Remind Me for the soundtrack to a Japanese anime film titled One Piece Film: Z. If you are familiar with the Nickelback song and Avril‘s musical style then you should be prepared for what you can hear above. If not, I apologize profusely for what you’re about to hear. Honestly, some things are just so terribly terrible that they must be shared … please don’t hate me.
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
It’s that time of the year again, time when People magazine names their selection of the Sexiest Man of the Year and this year, they have bestowed that hallowed honor on the one and only Channing Tatum. While Channing has been featured among the Sexiest Men of the Year before, this is the first time he has graced the People cover as THE sexiest of them all. Considering how much lurve People gave to the cheeky male stripper film Magic Mike earlier this year, it should come as no big surprise that Channing has been selected for this tribute. Click below to see Channing‘s sexiest People magazine coverphoto, read some excerpts from his coverstory article and see which other hot mens made the cut this year as the sexiest of the year. More »
Its Name Is 'Just-in Beaver' and It's ALL KINDS OF WRONG
Remember back in April of last year, just after her 18th birthday, when a company called Pipedream Productions released a sex doll named Finally Mylie? Well, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Now that Justin Bieber has reached the very legal age of 18, Pipedream Productions has come up with a sex doll inspired by him as well. The just-released doll is called Justin-in Beaver and, you’re gonna love this, he is a sex doll that swings both ways (ie. it’s being marketed to both women and men)! Yes, folks, I know this is SO WRONG on SO MANY LEVELS but I would be remiss if I shared news of the Mylie doll and not the Just-in Beaver doll so … it’s basically about equality. Read on to learn more about this new “love doll” … if you dare. More »

Danzig Never Looked so Good
In celebration of Hallowe’en today my girl Hustle Roses has released a new music video for her amazing cover of the Danzig song Sistinas. The song will be featured on Hustle Roses‘s upcoming new mixtape titled Bitters so this music video release gives us an early listen of the song. What I love most about this cover is that Hustle Roses was able to make the song sound … sexy. I am in love with this video. I am always impressed with artists who are able to pay homage to a song while making it their own at the same time. Take a listen, take a look. Happy Hallowe’en, from Hustle Roses to YOU!
