Sarah Palin, the mother of the world’s most famous plastic surgery laden, reality show-starring teen mom, pitched a fit this week because First Lady Michelle Obama invited the hip hop artist/actor/poet, Common, to perform poetry at the White House.
See, some of Common’s lyrics are not as G-rated as everything the Palin family does, like killing animals, surgically altering their facial features “for medical reasons” and getting knocked up whilst still in high school. Keep reading »
I was poking around on Apple’s iTunes Movie Trailers site this weekend, when I noticed the poster for Queen Latifah and Common‘s new movie, “Just Wright,” looked a little, well, just wrong. I know the Queen is a Jenny Craig spokeswoman and has lost some weight over the past couple of years, but this much? The angle is flattering, and it’s hard to tell with Common’s arms wrapped around her. Still, it looks to me like someone has gone in, thinned her up, and given her a boob-lift. Sure, this is the Hollywood way of doing things, but it feels lame, especially considering Queen Latifah seems like one of those people who would actually not really care about what anyone thought of her body but herself. Decide for yourself after the jump. Keep reading »
If you’re a big fan of Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr., aka Common, and like so many chicks we know, prefer to wear men’s cologne because so much girly perfume smells like fruit and pink flowers, then listen up: To celebrate his new Diesel fragrance, the rapper is holding a private concert for his friends and celebrity fans at NYC venue Capitale, which is small enough to ensure that onlookers just might get close enough to literally smell him. But what’s a girl who’s not a close personal friend or “celebrity fan” to do? Starting August 10, the first 500 people to make a Diesel Only The Brave purchase of $117.50 or more at Macy’s in Herald Square (and other select NYC locations) will receive two general admission tickets to this exclusive concert. Normally we’re not the hugest celebrity fragrance fans around here but you might be surprised at Common’s complex combo: With top notes of lemon blossom, mandarin and coriander leaves; a heart of labdanum, black rose and lavender; and a dry down of amber, tolu and ebony woods, this stuff actually smells really good. So there. Keep reading »
Even though he’s sweaty and dressed like an Average Joe in basketball shorts and a white tank, Common still looks hot enough to eat. And he matches! [NYC, 8/2/09] Keep reading »
Normally, wet white t-shirts have been used on drunken Spring Break girls. But the geniuses at In Style have finally appropriated the tight, sheer, T for women by putting Gossip Girl’s Penn Badgley in one. I’m sure he was cold on set soaking wet, but the pictures are super hot. Then, once they got him stripped down and warmed up, they asked him about what he finds sexy. So based on his responses, The Frisky scientists have extrapolated how a date with him would go: After you cheer for him while he plays sports, he’ll take you home, put on some sultry Common, feed you chocolate strawberries and then eff you. That damn Serena Van der Woodsen really is the luckiest girl in the world! (For more hotness, there’s a video after the jump…) [Towelroad] Keep reading »
