Seriously? This is exactly what I was hoping wouldn’t happen. But it’s happening. Usher Raymond and Tameka Foster are back in court and this time 11-year old Kile Glover‘s death is being used as a tool by both parties. The two have been engaged in a drama-filled custody battle which was put on hold after Kile‘s tragic jet-ski accident. It even seemed, for a moment, that Usher was willing to drop certain claims and requests, in the interest of making Tameka‘s life a little easier. But since Kile‘s passing, it now seems that there may have been another agenda at work, and Tameka is slamming Usher for not being supportive of her at all. Among other things, she claims that Usher only came to see his former stepson once while he was in the hospital on life support. Get the rest of the unfortunate details inside.
Well. That was intense. I kind of wanna take my laptop into a small dark room and watch this video again. If you can bring me a small glass of Merlot, you’re totally invited. R&B crooner Miguel recently released the video for Adorn, a single off his Kaleidoscope Dream album. The video is all kinds of sexy, sexual, sexified-ness… unless of course I’m wrong… and I’m just having a special kinda day. But I’m pretty sure it wasn’t just me! Aside from the um sexy sights (and sounds), the video has a sultry dark feel to it that I am totally loving right now. I haven’t been this excited to see weird looking cheerleaders jumping around in a smoke-filled room since Smells Like Teen Spirit. It’s good to be back there, lol.
Anyway, Miguel is on a roll and I can’t believe I’m, like, into him! Not in that way, totally not that way. But, you know, musically. Or whatever. Anyway, check out the video while I work through this pseudo-sexual attraction I’m developing for this man………‘s music. Cause it’s not about him. It’s the artistry I’m feelin’. Yeah. The artistry. Also, shouts-out to the girl in the yellow swimsuit (at 1:56). Totally made me feel like I was in an American Apparel ad. That was awesome.

Earlier this week I congratulated US Swimmer Michael Phelps for becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Today, it is my great pleasure to give some MAJOR congratulatory LURVE to US Gymnast Gabrielle Gabby Douglas because she won the Gold Medal in the Women’s All-Around Event in London yesterday. Not only is Gabby the fourth US gymnast to win the Gold in the Women’s Gymnastics All-Around (the third in consecutive Olympics) but she is also the first African-American to win Gold in the event. Gabby did the US very, very proud yesterday! Click below to see some photos from her big day, read some deets and see what Beyoncé has to say about Gabby‘s Gold Medal win. More »
Ahhh Kirsten Dunst! Je t’aime! Something about this girl just makes me smile, lol. Photographers spotted her arriving at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood, and then leaving a little while later with her boyfriend, actor Garrett Hedlund. Kirsten was definitely dressed for a date, in a simple but lovely cream-colored dress. But my favorite part of her look was the hair– she has this effortless side-swoop-ish thing going on that I couldn’t duplicate if I tried. Plus I’m not a blonde, and the blonde factor is crucial here. The hair, plus the red lip, plus the little clutch was perfect… IMO. But I’m a big Kirsten Dunst fan, so I’m definitely biased. I know we have a few fashionistas on the site– what do you guys think of Kirsten‘s look? Peep the gallery for more!

Selena Gomez just wrapped Spring Breakers, a dark comedy co-starring James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, and directed by Harmony Korine. Honestly? I would give anything to see what the former Disney princess is doing in this guy’s movie! Korine wrote the 1995 madness that was Kids and directed Gummo, the weirdest, creepiest, amazingest movie about small-town life. And now Selena‘s keeping it all-the-way-indie with Parental Guidance Suggested, a movie by Tim Garrick. Garrick wrote Stranger Than Fiction and the hugely popular LA musical Sneaux! The Sinsational Gothic Figure Skating Musical (no clue what that must have entailed, but it sounds amazing). So like I said, Selena‘s keeping it indie. Which is not a bad idea if she’s looking to get some street cred (aren’t we all?)! Get details on her newest project inside.
Now I’m not sure if we really need another big family wedding movie, but we’re getting one anyway! At least this one has an all-star cast that you really can’t complain about: Bob De Niro (I call him ‘Bob‘ sometimes), Susan Sarandon, Robin Williams, Diane Keaton, Katherine Heigl, Topher Grace, Amanda Seyfriend, and Ben Barnes (the groom) are all teaming up in a movie about love, marriage, and one common human thread: lying to your Mom (sorry Mom). I love all of these actors individually, so we’ll have to see how they pan out as an ensemble cast. Another site posted the trailer and titled their article, ‘The Big Wedding’ Trailer: You Are Cordially Invited to Every Rom-Com Ever.’ LMAO. Others are reminding readers of a little film called New Year’s Eve, but I’m going to remain positive here. I have high hopes for The Big Wedding (despite that feeling in my gut, and a real concern over the title)! Plus, it’s always hilarious to see De Niro doing the normal guy, non-gangster thing. Check out the trailer and tell me what you think! Also, am I the only person who seriously misses the days when Robin Williams ruled the world? No? Nobody else?
The Big Wedding comes out on October 26.
Ok, everyone calm down. Calm down! Vinny is not officially off the market… yet. But he did tweet an interesting picture of Melanie Iglesias, one of the few femme voices on MTV 2‘s Guy Code. The two met on the show (which hilariously and unapologetically lets you into the very disturbing mind of the heterosexual man), and they’ve apparently been kicking it on the not-so-low-low. Deets inside!
You know, I bet I Kristen Stewart is going thru a really rough time right now. Granted, the fall out from her cheating scandal is all her own fault but still … she’s prolly bummin’ hardcore right now. The blog Professional Fangirl got their hands on a pretty amazing screenshot of what Kristen Stewart‘s email inbox looks like right now and, I gotta say, it’s damn hilarious. Check it out below.
