In my day, I’ve come across many children I want to snatch up and keep for myself, and Noah Ritter has now made his way to the top of my list (sorry, Blue Ivy, you’ve been bumped). The five-year-old was visiting a local fair when WNEP gave him the chance to talk on live television about one of the rides, but he had an agenda of his own. Needless to say, he completely stole the show. Noah may only be in kindergarten, but he’s “apparently” already found his favorite word. He’s also apparently the cutest, funniest kid ever and I can only hope my offspring are as awesome as he is.

Lou Reed said it himself: “My life is music.” The legendary Velvet Underground frontman, who passed away October 27 at the age of 71, wasn’t exactly known for his bedside manner, but that lovable curmudgeon sure did know a thing or two about sound. Lou gave what would be his final interview on September 21 as part of a photo shoot for French wireless company Parrot, for whom he had recently assisted with the optimization of their Parrot Zik headphones. “You do what you love, or you get arrested,” he deadpans at first, but when the topic shifts to music, his tone turns characteristically, well, lyrical. What a beautiful human being. [Rolling Stone]
Former adult film star Jenna Jameson appeared on “Good Day New York” to promote her new, erotic novel Sugar and OH SUGAR, it was uncomfortable. She appeared to be under the influence of something — slurring her words and talking about how good she is at being monogamous (even while filming a gang bang?). It was so bad that producers cut her segment short because they were concerned about her mental state. Contrary to what Jameson says, everything does not appear to be going well. Let’s hope she gets the help she needs.[WOW]
We were far from the only ones to be seriously stunned by Rick Owens’ above-and-beyond runway step show — it’s being called “one of the most innovative and exciting fashion shows” of recent recall. New York-based singer-songwriter Arin Lawrence, who performed as part of The Soul Steppers (just one of four groups featured in Owens’ show), regaled her story of the show, from its very germination last spring until last week’s ground-breaking performance, in an exclusive interview with BuzzFeed.

Jigga what? The Brooklyn-born rapper-turned-multimedia mogul, looking characteristically cleaned-up in a stark white suit, will line November newsstands on the cover of Vanity Fair. Jay Z has always given good interview, but a VF cover story is another matter entirely … and if the excerpts from the piece are any indication, Young Hov delivers. The conversation runs the gamut from his years spent slinging drugs as a Bed-Stuy teenager (and the surprising way in which that experience serves to benefit him now), wooing Beyoncé, the Blue Ivy surrogacy rumors, and, perhaps most importantly of all, whether Blue prefers his music or Bey’s. Some quotes from the interview, after the jump! Keep reading »
