I don’t know what I was expecting from Mr. Easy Listening himself, Ricky Martin
. But his new song, “The Best Thing About Me Is You” (with Joss Stone), is as bland as it gets. I can see a class full of kindergartners warbling this to their parents at the school concert. But the music video is interesting, especially for the newly-out-of-the-closet
singer. It has gay couples, interracial couples and attractive people of all ages! I guess there could be worse things than a

9-year-old girl finding this on YouTube and bopping her head to love, tolerance and acceptance. [You Tube

I would like to start this post off with an apology, to you and to all of Hollywood. I have been so focused on my unabashed love for Ryan Gosling, I have been completely remiss in my responsibilities. I have not been paying close enough attention to who the stars of tomorrow shall be. I haven’t been sussing out who will walk in the perfect footsteps left by The Gos. All that changes now. I am casting him aside for today and focusing my sights on the men who will rock your world in 2011 on the big and small screen.
Katie Holmes graces the cover of February’s Elle magazine, alongside the cover line, “On Tom, Suri, and coming back to TV—as Jackie O.” Only, as we reported yesterday, Katie’s miniseries “The Kennedys” has been indefinitely shelved by The History Channel. That’s a little awkward. [PopWrap] Keep reading »
Ten years ago, after flicking my mortarboard in the air at college graduation, my best friend and I embarked on a rite of passage backpacking-through-Europe trip. Together, we traveled through France, Italy, Austria, Germany, and the Czech Republic, buckling under the weight of our backpacks and taking extra croissants from continental breakfasts at hostels in hopes that they’d last us through lunch. By day, we overdosed on museums and took roll upon roll of photos at historical sights. By night, we headed to plazas and parks to chug bottles of wine outdoors—something you can’t do here unless you want to get a ticket—and have deep conversations with people our age, both locals and fellow travelers. I was single for the trip, but somehow managed not to hook up once the entire month. I remember sulking about this fact at the time.
Fast forward to today, when an email popped up my inbox from my travel companion. She was forwarding me a message from some guy with an ultra Eastern European last name. Keep reading »
Turns out you can blame more than just your crappy prom night on that d-bag who broke your heart back in high school! A University Of Maine study has confirmed that the quality of a woman’s early romances can be seen as an indicator for depression. If a girl is constantly looking for reassurance in the form of a boyfriend, she’s more likely to become depressed, especially if the guys she’s gotten involved with are jerks. The biggest red flags were nagging your boo to tell you they love you all the time, complaining about the same things over and over again, and the “totally deep,” er, excessive discussion of your personal problems. So, basically, anything you liked to do with your BF when you were a teenager was bad for you. Bummer. (Yeah, those cigarettes you sneaked count too, but they’re not part of this study.)
