Belinda Carlisle’s Lips Are Unsealed

I don’t think I knew any young girls growing up in the ’80s who didn’t worship the all-girls rock band The Go-Go’s. I was no exception. I was specifically taken with the funky hair-rocking, Day-Glo-clothes-sporting, frosted lipstick-wearing lead singer, Belinda Carlisle. I wanted to be her, but now I’m not so sure. Belinda’s new tell-all memoir, Lips Unsealed, reveals that her life was more hell than heaven on earth. Here are five things you probably didn’t know about the Go-Go. Keep reading »

“Law & Order” Rises From The Ashes? With Henry Ian Cusick?

I’ve got a double dose of amazing “Law & Order” news for you. As you probably remember, the classic show was canceled in May after 20 seasons. But apparently AMC—the network behind “Mad Men” and Amelia’s favorite new obsession, “Breaking Bad”— has approached NBC and asked about the possibility of creating new episodes of the series. Could there be more funky gavel sounds in our future? Potentially even more exciting: guess who has been added to the cast of “Law & Order: SVU”? Henry Ian Cusik, otherwise known as Desmond from “Lost.” Woohoo! Cusick will play a graphic artist who may or may not be a love interest for Mariska Hargitay’s Detective Benson. But will he still have an Australian Scottish accent? Please say “Aye!” [NYMag.com, TV Guide] Keep reading »

Madonna Takes Her Anglophile Kick To A New Level

Madonna is directing yet another Britastic film. After last year’s “Filth and Wisdom,” she’s now doing one called “W.E.” The flick is about Queen Elizabeth and how she was once a savvy, powerful chick. Natalie Dormer of “The Tudors” will be playing the Queen Mother and James Fox of “Sherlock Holmes” has been cast as King George V. Madonna totally loses us on the plot, though, which goes on a confusing journey through England’s royal scandals, like the love affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson. During the relationship, Simpson was accused of being a witch, a hermaphrodite and the king was thought to be gay and a Nazi sympathizer. Supposedly, their relationship will be juxtaposed “with a 1998 romance between a woman in a loveless marriage (Abbie Cornish) and a Russian security guard.” Got it? Yeah, me neither. Vera Farmiga, Ewan McGregor, and Margo Stilley have all dropped out of the project. Stilley cited “artistic differences” and said Madonna is “really something.” In a good or bad way?

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Joel Cheating On Nicole? A Baby For Jessica Simpson?

It’s that time of year, just past spring fever, when all the baby rumors start. I guess the idea is that once the snow thawed, everyone started shacking up and doing the deed. So, it’s no surprise that this week’s tabloids are all baby dramas and alleged relationships, often simultaneously. I guess that’s why they call it hump day? And so you remain on top of all the news, we rounded up the juiciest gossip once again so that you don’t have to be bothered with paper cuts and inane “They’re Just Like Us” columns. Keep reading »

Why Everyone Should Be Watching “Tosh.0″

If you were alive in the ‘90s, you may find something eerily familiar about “Tosh.0,” the California-based internet clip show now in its third season on Comedy Central. Funny home movies shown to a live studio audience by a host who seems wholesome if you don’t look too closely? If you’re like me, you’re thinking, “I’ve seen this somewhere before.” In 1990, Bob Saget became the face of a show that encouraged laughing at crackpot escapades caught on tape, ABC’s longest-running comedy series, “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” Tosh.0, which airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m., is “AFHV”’s nastier, trashier, Twitter-literate younger brother.

A Mashup Of “Mad Men” Come-Ons


Here’s a little something to get you in the mood for the premiere of “Mad Men” on July 25. Watch the swashbuckling men of Sterling Cooper and the totally cheesy lines they throw at the ladies. My personal highlight: Peggy‘s retort, “I’m in the persuasion business and I’m very disappointed in your presentation.” Love her. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

In Defense Of Lilith Fair

In 1997, you couldn’t have paid me to go to Lilith Fair. Sarah McLachlan, Paula Cole, the Indigo Girls—all undeniably talented, but not even slightly to my taste. What was up with all the emo singer/songwriters? And, ugh, were they really using an image of a naked woman with a flower growing out of her head as their logo? No, that summer I was too excited to see Hole, Devo, and Beck at Lollapalooza to ever give the hippie dippiness of Lilith Fair a chance. Ditto for every summer until the concept of the all-female music festival fizzled out in 1999.

But then this year, Sarah McLachlan announced a rebooted Lilith Fair. The concept was the same but the lineup was truly off the hook, spanning a huge number of genres, ages, tastes, and aesthetics. For the top 40 lover, there’s Rihanna and Ke$ha. For indie rockers, there’s the Gossip, Metric, and Tegan and Sara. On the R&B tip, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, and Erykah Badu. Not to mention my personal ’80s favorite—The Bangles. Keep reading »

Quotable: Prince Declares The Internet “Completely Over”

“The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give away my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it. The internet’s like MTV. At one time, MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”

—Prince — is he still going by that name? — explains why he has closed his official website and banned iTunes and MySpace from using his music, even as his new album 20TEN comes out [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
