African-American Ladies Get “Juicy,” Their Own Celebrity Rag

Lots of our beloved magazines have been flushed down the tubes. Au revoir, Gourmet! Goodbye, Modern Bride! We’ll never forget you, Domino! But it’s not all dark clouds at the newsstand. Juicy, the first celebrity, hair and beauty magazine just for African-American women (from the same folks who publish XXL), will launch in May. (You can also check out their site, JuicyMagOnline.com, shortly before the May launch.) Will Juicy be able to hold up next to the gajillion other gossip rags like In Touch and US Weekly? If all the dramz in Rihanna, Kanye and Usher‘s lives are any indication, Juicy won’t have a problem. Keep reading »

Double Vision At The Premiere Of “The Runaways”

Over the weekend, “The Runaways” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Joan Jett and Cherie Currie joined their Hollywood versions, Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning, on the red carpet. And we gotta give it up for the casting on this flick—both pairs are dead ringers. Keep reading »

Was “Pants On The Ground” A Rip-Off Of This ’90s Grandpa Rap? You Be The Judge!


If you like the “American Idol” classic “Pants On The Ground,” you’ll love the totally ’90s “Pockets On The Floor!” Hmm, on second thought, they sound pretty much identical. This begs the question, is 62-year-old contestant Larry “General” Platt the Vanilla Ice of “Idol”? Or, is this more of a which came first, the chicken or the baller, situation?

“American Idol” Contestant’s Mom Is Missing


This is Angela Martin, and there’s no one I’m rooting for more on “American Idol.” This is her third year auditioning. The first time around, she made it to Hollywood—except that tragedy struck a week before when her father was murdered. The next year, she had to leave auditions for a court date for a traffic violation. This year, she got a unanimous vote through to Hollywood. But now another horrible thing has happened. The day after Christmas, Angela’s mom never showed up at her sister’s house. She’s been missing ever since, though her car was found in a wooded area of a Chicago suburb. This is Angela’s last year of eligibility for “Idol,” so she’s pushing through and competing anyway. “The mothers, the other contestants, everyone has really, really held me up,” she says. “Music heals my soul and it heals my heart and I tell everyone, I have a Band-Aid on my heart right now.” We hope her mom is found—alive. And that she makes it far in the competition. [People] Keep reading »

Notes From Sundance, Take 4: Must. See. The. Runaways.

Adrien Brody is so nice! I saw him stopping last night to talk to the hard-working—and now starstruck!—Sundance volunteer workers. He took his time and answered all their questions, before going on to grace the red carpet for the festival premiere of his new comedy, “High School.” It’s a semi-farce about a student who makes a small mistake (burning one with stoner classmates right before mandatory drug testing is instated), and then tries to cover it up with a huge whammy (getting his whole high school stoned, so that the test is invalidated). Adrien’s character is named Psycho Ed, but I can’t give you more than that because I got frozen out of the wait list ticket line for the third time this festival. Frankly, that’s getting a little old. For the rest of the festival, I’m going to stick with shows that I have tickets for—except “The Runaways,” which I’m even more excited for after hearing that Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning actually got on stage with Joan Jett at her show Saturday night to promote it. Gotta catch that flick somehow, even if I do share this goal with everyone else in Park City. So I’m lining up early with the rest of the hopefuls every time the film screens. Wait for me, Dakota and K-Stew. I’ll be there as soon as I can! Keep reading »

Tyra Banks Wants To Turn A Plus-Size Teen Into A Model

Tyra Banks might be ending her talk show, but that doesn’t mean she’s out of ideas. Tyra recently announced her latest project — a modeling competition for plus-size teens only, called the Fiercely Real Teen Model Search. “I’ve always felt it was my mission to expand the narrow perceptions of beauty … I challenge industry and universal standards by featuring and celebrating non-traditional beauty, and stressing that true beauty is both inside and out,” she told Us Weekly. So TyTy is calling on teens between the ages of 13 and 19 to enter her modeling competition. The contestants must wear a dress size of 12 to 20. And shorties need not apply — only teens who are between 5 feet 9 inches and 6 feet 1 inch tall will be considered. Tyra will announce the finalists on the March 2 episode of the “The Tyra Show,” and the winner will be revealed the next day on the talk show. Keep reading »

Will Forte Dishes The Dirt On Heather Locklear And Tommy Lee


A while ago, we shared with you Kristen Wiig reading from Suzanne Somers’ book of sex poetry, from a reading series called “Celebrity Autobiography.” Here is Will Forte of “SNL” reading from The Dirt, Motley Crue’s autobiography—he picked a section by Tommy Lee about meeting Heather Locklear. Some interesting notes: They were introduced by his accountant, the brother of her dentist, which is very rock and roll? Also, Tommy was taken with her because she was not the kind of girl he could have group sex in a jacuzzi with. Awww. [Asylum] Keep reading »

Quotable: Sam Trammell Of “True Blood” Likes Wearing His Birthday Suit

“We joke about it—and who has the record for the most disrobes. I think Ryan does. But I’m close behind him at this point because I’ve already disrobed like four or five times this year and I don’t think he has at all. I’ve got to fight that out with him. Ryan is definitely ready to show up and flaunt it, because he’s got the bod to back it up. He’s probably the least bashful.”

—Sam Trammell, aka Sam Merlotte of “True Blood,” on how he and Ryan Kwanten, who plays Jason Stackhouse, constantly have to get nakey [People] Keep reading »

This week is like the deli sandwich of new release Tuesdays, ’cause it’s jam-packed with meaty, juicy morsels of music! We got a new smokin’ Hot Chip record startin’ the dance party. The Magnetic Fields are here to polarize your heart. Charlotte Gainsbourg and Beck made some beautiful music together, and we hope that’s a double entendre — that would be a rad kid.

It’s raining, it’s pouring, and I don’t give a crap because “The Bachelor” is on tonight! Who will Jake continue to woo, despite being the most boring Bach in the history of EVER?
