Quickies: These Guys Fit The “Million Dollar Bill” And Fall Fashion Decisions

  • Some guys in Asbury Park, New Jersey gave Whitney Houston a tribute by performing her song “Million Dollar Bill.” [The WOW Report] — I would have guessed they were on Fire Island, not in Asbury Park.
  • Days before Demi Moore chastised Perez Hilton for publishing suggestive photos of her daughter Tallulah Willis, 15, Perez promised Tyra Banks on her talk show that he’d stop making derogatory statements towards minors. [Starpulse] — Perez must have been waiting for the episode to air before he changed his ways. Or maybe his ghostwriter had no idea the promise was made?
  • Matt Damon said he had the “funnest” time gaining weight for his starring role in “The Informant.” [PopEater] — I still love you, Matt, even if you don’t have the best grammar.

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! But first, we’d like to wish Pink a very happy birfday.

Ashley Dupre’s New Single Is A Real Tearjerker

Speaking of Ashley Dupre, it looks like there’s a reason the call girl who Eliot Spitzer frequented decided to post a rant about women on her blog today, as opposed to last week or a year ago. Remember how she wanted to be a singer? Looks like she’s drumming up press for her new single, “Inside Out.” And, oh goody, it’s a ballad that kind of reminds me of Vanessa William’s “Save the Best for Last.” Take a listen below.

The Frisky’s Songs Of Summer Playlist

Can you believe it’s already September?! Here in NYC fall feels so close we can almost hear leaves crunching under our feet on our walk to work. But before we pack up our sundresses and sandals, let’s celebrate the summer that was with a kick-ass playlist, shall we? Last week, New York magazine’s culture blog, Vulture, posted its staffers’ picks for “Songs of the Summer,” so we here at The Frisky thought we’d do the same. After the jump, see what songs have kept us movin’ and groovin’ through the dog days of summer. Keep reading »

Quickies!: Mary J. Blige Is “The One” And Farrah Fawcett Allegedly Had An Affair

  • Mary J. Blige teams up with Drake for her song “The One.” [OnSmash.com] — By far the most entertaining R&B/hip-hop video I’ve seen in awhile.
  • Will Smith and Martin Lawrence say they support a second “Bad Boys” sequel but won’t make anything official until they’ve read a script. [Celebitchy] — Please, don’t do that. My ears, eyes, and mind can’t take another craptastic, shoot ‘em up movie.
  • Kelly Preston was supposed to speak at the annual Women’s Conference, which would have been the first time she addressed the death of her son, Jett Travolta, publicly, but she said in a statement that it was too soon and she’s still in the process of healing. [PopEater]

    Whitney Houston: The Greatest Album Of All?

    I fell in love with Whitney Houston the first time I saw the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” video. I stuck with her forever, through “The Bodyguard” and “Just Whitney.” But circa 2000, we hit a bumpy road as her marriage with Bobby Brown got seriously rocky and the rumor mill seemed pretty convincing that she was having drug issues. Then there was “Being Bobby Brown,” and no one ever thought she’d come back from discussing Bobby’s poop. But finally, she’s put out a new album, I Look To You, out today. The album is a collaboration with music mogul Clive Davis, and features ditties from the likes of Akon, R. Kelly and Alicia Keys. And, phew, the reviews look good. Here’s what the critics are saying.

    Chris Brown Really, Seriously Swears He’s A Changed Man


    Go figure. Chris Brown‘s new single, “Changed Man,” is dedicated to Rihanna, and it certainly sounds like a plea to get her back, no? Some sample lyrics for your perusal: “I remember your touch/ God, I miss you so much/ Please believe me baby I’m sorry/ All of this money and fame/ Could never amount to every morning waking up to your face/ I’ll make it up to you/ I’ll show the world I’m a changed man/ Can we love, Can we love, Can we love again.” We’re hoping this doesn’t sway Rihanna. These sentiments seem kind of canned, plus he doesn’t sound that tortured singing. Keep reading »

    Katy Perry And Taylor Swift Do “West Side Story” For MTV Video Music Awards


    T-minus 16 days until the MTV Music Video Awards on Sept. 13, and the promo videos for the show are actually way cute. Above, MTV’s version of “Tonight” from “West Side Story” starring Cobra Starship, Leighton Meester, Ne-Yo, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift. After the jump, Britney Spears and Russell Brand flirt via telepathy. Keep reading »

    Chris Isaak Is (Still) The Hottest


    I have a confession to make: I have a Chris Isaak problem. Yes, I know that he’s 53 and actually kind of a doofus, as evidenced by the clip above. But for some reason, I will never be able to get the image out of my head of him rolling around in the sand with Helena Christensen in the “Wicked Game” video. Oh, and did I mention his sexy young-Elvis snarl? As a result of the aforementioned two things, I have bought many a Chris Isaak album. (Yes, including his Christmas album. Yes, I am Jewish.) So I was pretty pumped when I saw that he was co-hosting CNN.com’s “Music and Conversation” webisode this week. Check it out here. He gets less doofy, I promise.
