  • Lea T., the transsexual model who is quickly becoming one of the biggest names on the catwalk, has landed the December cover of Elle Brasil, the Brazilian version of the fashion mag. I totally get a Victoria-Beckham-meets-Kim-Kardashian vibe from her. [Daily Mail UK]
  • Oops: Tyson Beckford might have spoiled the “America’s Next Top Model” finale. [ONTD]
  • Blake Lively has terrible taste in art, or, as she puts it, she is drawn to works “that portray a childish imagination with a malevolent undertone.” [The Gloss]
  • A Britney Spears song for every mood. [TresSugar] Keep reading »

Justin Bieber Flirts With Mariah Carey In New Christmas Video

Justin's First Kiss

Even pop stars can have awkward first kisses. Read More »

Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber‘s “All I Want For Christmas” duet debuted last night during the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center. The best I can say about it is “feel good Christmas music” with a questionably appropriate music video.

Now, Mariah Carey is Mariah Carey. High notes and shaking her spray-tanned booty is what she’s about. It is the way of the world. I think her short-short-short Santa outfit in her “All I Want For Christmas” music video with Justin Bieber pushes the line of good taste. But hey, this is a grown woman obsessed with rainbows, stuffed animals and butterflies that we’re talking about.

No, my discomfort with the “All I Want For Christmas” music video is the flirtation between Mariah and Justin Bieber. Keep reading »

  • Vinny Guadagnino from “Jersey Shore” debuted a rap song on YouTube yesterday called “Rack City Mix” with the lyrics “Actin’ like I’m raping it / F**k her till she fakin’ it.” After getting blased by the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), Vinny pulled the video. He also tweeted, “Whoa! Some people really know how to take things out of context ! #LearnToListenToMusic …It was fun though!” Perhaps realizing that tweet was even more boneheaded than the initial video, Vinny then tweeted, “Sorry for offensive rap.I’m 100% against violence & work with many organizations to stop it. Will continue to do so.” Sigh. [Huffington Post]

  • Kris Humphries has responded to Kim Kardashian’s divorce filing by requesting a legal separation that will allegedly ultimately lead to him seeking an annulment. Apparently an annulment rather than a divorce means Kris is not going to squabble over Kim’s money — not that he would get any from their prenup, anyway. [People, Us Weekly]
  • Lea Michele and Taylor Swift have both auditioned for the coveted role of Eponine in the “Les Miserables” musical remake. Sorry, Tay-Tay but Lea Michele has the singing chops for this Broadway remake! (And if you don’t believe me, watch this.) But I’ll give her this: Taylor definitely has more of the waifish lovesick French girl look. Oh, and Scarlett Johannson and Evan Rachel Wood are also in the running, but bitches, please.

  • Christopher Meloni might be headed to “True Blood” next season. [TVline]
  • The band Hanson is launching their own beer. [The Star]
