I ain't mad at him
Back in April we were reminded that Ashley Parker Angel still exists when we learned that his early ’00s boyband O-Town was reforming … without Ashley Parker Angel. Today we are reminded of Ashley again because of the photos he likes to post on Instagram. There is a new thing going around online called #FeelingNuts where men post photos of themselves holding their balls to raise awareness for testicular cancer (think of it as a less virally successful ALS Ice Bucket Challenge) and Ashley posted a photo of himself in his underwear holding his balls. If you can believe it, the sight actually caught my attention. I, then, discovered that APA‘s official Instagram profile is FULL of shirtless, mostly nekkid selfies which probably means he cares less about raising awareness for testicular cancer and is more interested in showing off his buff bod … not that there is a THING wrong with that. And so, I present to you a collection of Ashley Parker Angel‘s shirtless selfies culled from his Instagram profile for your perusal. Have fun.

No Shirt? No Problem.
Tom Hardy, that tattooed hunk of a man, went for a shopping excursion in West Hollywood this weekend and as you can see in the gallery presented here, he did so sans shirt. Actually, it looks like Tom decided to disrobe after his shopping spree and just couldn’t wait to change into a brand new shirt … so he stripped in the parking lot on his way to his car. As you can also see, all of his many tattoos were on full display … do you have a favorite? Sigh. I used to live very close to Fred Segal and the thought that Tom Hardy was half nekkid so close to where I used to live is a bit of a bummer … but, at least, we have these photos to make up for missing seeing him in person.

I'm into it.
Okay, normally, I wouldn’t be impressed with the fact that Esquire Magazine picked someone like Penélope Cruz to wear the 2014 crown of Sexiest Woman Alive. Last year they picked Scarlett Johannson, and in 2012 it was Mila Kunis. None of these are especially shocking choices, but this morning I thought to myself, “Hmmm. Penélope Cruz is, like, forty.” And, indeed, she is actually forty (proving my theory that life at/after forty is probably awesome). So, I’m excited for her, and happy that the sexiest woman alive this year is a grown woman, who’s pushed out a couple of babies, and is incredibly talented. Peep the gallery to see what the sexiest woman alive is werkin’ with (she’s werkin’ with a lot…), and go HERE to read her interview with Esquire.
Lou Reed, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Green Day, Chic, Sting ...
The nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for 2015 have been announced and I’m exceedingly happy to see that some of my all-time favorite music artists have been included. Nine Inch Nails, The Smiths, Lou Reed, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Green Day, N.W.A. and others have been revealed as nominees for the Rock Hall‘s Class of 2015.

The 'Grind' Issue
Yesterday we saw the cover of the new issue of Flaunt magazine, featuring singer/actor Nick Jonas baring his abs. Earlier today, we saw more Flaunt photos of Nick baring a bit more. Right now, by popular demand, we get to see all of the photos from Nick‘s Flaunt photospread from the magazine’s Grind issue. I’m pretty certain that Flaunt will be sharing the accompanying interview but unless the text is presented on Nick‘s nekkid body, I’m guessing these photos are all we need to see. Enjoy.

'Try Again' Lifetime?
After all of the casting drama surrounding this TV movie’s production, I can’t help but be amazed that this thing is still happening! I mean, WHO is going to watch Lifetime’s Aaliyah: Princess of R&B biopic? Come to think of it, I probably will—at least the first 5 minutes or so. And now we have some new stills from the movie, because they are still trying to get us excited about this. Click inside for more!
So, I don’t want to ALARM anyone but it has come to my attention that Nick Jonas, once a posterboy for abstinence, has finally taken off his infamous purity ring. Now, before all y’all get all hot and bothered, the fact that Nick took off his ring doesn’t mean that he’s done the deed … but it does bode well. Nick discussed his new outlook on purity in a new interview, which you can read excerpts of below. More »
