They’re back! The Yeah Yeah Yeahs released their highly anticipated new album, It’s Blitz! While critics are calling it their grown up record, the band’s style is still tailored to their punk rock roots. With the help of her designer, Christian Joy, charismatic front woman Karen O has traded in her traditional glitter lamé get ups, and now she’s strutting around in studded leather. But you don’t have to bust out your old BeDazzaler to get her ensemble from the “Zero” video. Here’s how to rock your look like K-O! Keep reading »
Madonna supposedly broke up with model Jesus Luz after she saw photos of him getting close to 31-year-old model Luciana Costa in Brazil. We knew this relationship was kind of doomed from the start because he just seemed like Madge’s arm candy, and Madonna didn’t seem like his type.

We knew we had pretty much outgrown MTV when the network took on its “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” format — hello, “Cribs” and “My Super Sweet 16.” But we’ll totally tune in today at 3 pm when MTV puts a new spin on “House of Style.” You remember…that really cool style show, which helped keep Todd Oldham’s career afloat and was hosted by seemingly every popular ’90s model, like Cindy Crawford and Shalom Harlow. This time around, MTV is partnering with Teen Vogue to explore street and runway fashion. Host Bar Rafaeli, Teen Vogue editors, and Chanel Iman will countdown the must-have fashions for spring. And the DIY segment is still a part of the show, but you have to tune in on time in order to catch it. We’re hoping this show doesn’t completely exclude adult fashion and that we’ll be able to reinterpret teen styles. Let us know in the comments what you think of this remake.

The OctoMom, Nadya Suleman, has created a lot of drama, condom use, and diaper sales, but now she’s also inspired art! Daniel Edwards, best known for his sculptures of Britney Spears giving birth doggy style on a bear skin rug and Paris Hilton’s anointed autopsy with dog Tinkerbell pawing her body, has taken another pop culture icon, the OctoMom, and made her even more plastic.

BETTY FORD (1918- )
Former First Lady Betty Ford, born Betty Ann Bloomer in 1918, was a pioneering force for the causes of substance abuse rehabilitation and breast cancer awareness. Never before had a public figure, let alone a First Lady, allowed the people to know so much of her private life. Betty Ford stunned the nation with her public admission of her prescription drug and alcohol abuse. By allowing all to see that drug and alcohol abuse can affect anyone and, more importantly, that a person can recover from those addictions, Ford set an example. Her passion for helping others with the same struggles led her and her husband, President Gerald Ford, to establish the Betty Ford Clinic. Over the years, the Betty Ford Clinic has helped celebrities and ordinary people alike break free of substance abuse.
Not only did Betty Ford speak openly about her substance abuse, but also she revealed her struggle with breast cancer. Going public with her mastectomy raised national awareness for breast cancer. Her life is a living and lasting legacy of how our experiences can shape and make better the lives of countless others.

The Julia Roberts-Clive Ownes movie “Duplicity” comes to theaters today, and all anyone seems to be talking about is Roberts’ comeback. Since getting married to cameraman Danny Moder in 2002, Roberts has graced the big screen, but not in a lead role. In “Is Julia Roberts’s Box-Office Reign Over?” Newsweek considers whether the ’90s superstar will be able to keep up with the likes of Judd Apatow and friends at the box office. Time also looks at Roberts’ career and the choices she has made, saying, “If you’re nostalgic for the pretty woman in pink-and-black spandex, too bad. Roberts isn’t shoehorning herself back into a prostitute’s work outfit. She’s too sensible to even try.” E Online crunched numbers on career box-office performances of 10 lead actresses and 10 lead actors who turned 40 in the last decade. Sadly, they discovered that only the films of two actresses — Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston — have grossed above their career averages after 40. For men, the opposite was true; only two of the 10 actors considered grossed less after turning 40 (Keanu Reeves and Will Smith).
