Last night my BFF Darion and I made our way to the Nokia Theater in Downtown LA to see our girl Kelly Clarkson live in concert. In a few hours, I’ll post my full review from the show … but right now, I HAVE to share amazing video that I filmed last night with all y’all. On this Stronger Tour, Kelly has been taking fan requests on Twitter for cover songs for her to perform in concert. As a special gift for the LA crowd, Kelly decided to perform her version of Till The World Ends by Britney Spears … and OMFG, did she sound AMAZING! Check out the video of Kelly‘s performance last night. More »

Third Time's the Charmer
It looks like the forthcoming 2012 Tony Awards will, once again, be must-see this year because they have just announced that actor Neil Patrick Harris has signed on to host the show again. NPH previously hosted the Tonys two times before and managed to do a fantastic job both times. Clearly the Tonys want people to watch their show again so, naturally, they went after Neil as host.

Back in November of 2010, we learned that Zac Efron got himself all beefed up and buzz cut for a new film called The Lucky One. This morning, Zac made an appearance on CBS Sunday Morning to promote this month’s release of this film and was asked about his heartthrob status. Now, you may recall that Zac became a star setting hearts aflutter in the High School Musical films but, apparently, now that he’s all grown up … he’s no longer interested in the “heartthrob” label. Apparently, he hates being a heartthrob. HMMM. More »

For $2 Billion Dollars
We’ve got some very exciting sports news creating quite a stir here in LA today … it was announced late last night that an investment group lead by LA Lakers basketball star Earvin Magic Johnson put in the successful bid to buy the LA Dodgers baseball team which is up for sale. Johnson‘s group’s bid of $2 billion dollars was not only the highest bid put in for the Dodgers but it is also the highest bid any group has offered for any sports team EVER in North America. For years, the Dodgers have been plagued by the personal drama of the current owner Frank McCourt and his wife (who’s nasty divorce put the Dodgers management in jeopardy). With Magic Johnson as a new owner, it looks like a bright and exciting new era of the LA Dodgers is about to get underway. More »
We Are Benefiting From Her Beauty And Distinction
Stunning actress, Cate Blanchett is already different because she turned her back on Hollywood to run a theater company (in Sydney, nonetheless!) She is a magnificent talent and mother, and I am so proud to call her an Aussie. This week she is on the cover of Intelligent Life, a European magazine, to celebrate it’s 20th issue and together they decided to do something extraordinary – a cover shoot with 100% no airbrushing, Photoshopping or touching up. It is crazy that this is even something to talk about. Check out the pic of Cate on the cover below- she is nothing short of majestic, and she looks like what she is – a beautiful 42 year old woman. LOVE her!! More »
