The 54th Annual Grammy Awards is tonight! LL Cool J is the evening’s host, and the guest artist list is an impressive roster of talent from today and yesterday. While you can never know for sure what is going to happen at the Grammys (right, Kanye West?). Here are ten things we are definitely looking forward to.
10. Rihanna teams up with Coldplay. I’ll admit that Coldplay has never been a favorite band of mine. The list explaining why is too long to go into here, but I will concede that Mylo Xyloto is an impressive album. Rihanna lends her vocals — and hopefully daring outfit — on “Princess of China.” Read more…
Want to smell like Dom Pérignon and diamond grills? Well, I have the perfect fragrance for you —Kate Walsh‘s Billionaire Boyfriend.
Billionaire Boyfriend was released on Friday is the second in Walsh’s Boyfriend perfume line. The line is almost a take-down of the whole celebrity fragrance trend, except that you can actually buy the fragrances at both Sephora and on the Home Shopping Network. Apparently, Walsh plans to add a new fragrance to the line every Valentine’s Day.
The original Boyfriend fragrance was released last year and, as Walsh now explains, was inspired by a split with a significant other. Continue reading

At right, what’s believed to be Whitney Houston’s final performance, filmed Feb. 9, two nights before her death. The singer sang “Yes, Jesus Loves Me” at the Kelly Price & Friends pre-Grammy concert. Houston passed away today in Los Angeles at the age of 48. [via Huffington Post]
I’m going to put aside being annoyed with Beyonce and Jay-Z for releasing photos of their daughter Blue Ivy after the work week has ended because bloggers never sleep. Because look at that face. Blue Ivy Carter is gorgeous. I love the fact that Jay and Beyonce did not sell photos of their newborn child, that they released them personally via a small Tumblr blog, thanking the public for respecting their privacy “during this beautiful time in our lives.” I love that Blue Ivy is simply swaddled in a blanket, not adorned with some ridiculous headband, and, in the rest of the photos that you’ll see as you click through, just basking in the love of her parents. Blue, in my opinion, looks just like Beyonce, but her eyes are all Jay. Maybe I’m hormonal, but I’m getting a little teary writing this. Yay, babies!
Wet ‘n’ Wild, a cosmetics company that’s surely suffering in the digital age from the un-Googleability of its name (don’t try it for yourself unless you are 1) alone, and 2) actually looking for, um, a water theme park), has finally thrown in the towel and hired their very first celebrity spokesperson. Which is the end of an era, really — amid all the constant face changeover in drugstore cosmetics aisles (Kate Hudson! Christy Turlington! Jessica White!), that pink-lipped, scrunchie-wearing Wet ‘n’ Wild girl always remained a comforting standby. Now she’ll be replaced by Fergie, who says she signed on with the brand because it was popular in Hacienda Heights, the L.A. neighborhood where she grew up. Read more…
