You can barely see the singer’s teeny weeny car amongst all those paparazzi. [Los Angeles, 6/10/08] Keep reading »
Last week, Lily Allen became the latest young celeb to dye her hair pink. Among starlets who are addicted to hair dye, pink seems to be a rite of passage. The usual shades must get a little boring after a while. (I wouldn’t know, as I’ve never even tried Sun-In. But when Gwen Stefani went pink during the Return of Saturn era, I seriously considered following suit.) Keep reading »
Barnardo’s Believe In Children Charity, which believes “that the lives of all children and young people should be free from poverty, abuse and discrimination”, is auctioning off diamond encrusted celebrity Easter eggs by design duo Id-Iom. The pair is known for their modern, graffiti-style art and has immortalized five famous Brits — David and Victoria Beckham, Lily Allen, Prince Harry, and U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown — in milk chocolate. You knew Posh was a bobble-head, but now she’s an egghead. Get it? HA HA! Bidding starts at Â£50.00. Happy Early Easter! [eBay] Keep reading »
There are a number of talentless singer-wannabes who put their tracks on their MySpace pages but will never get a record deal. For the most part, that’s a good thing. However, there are many MySpace musicians who are more talented than “real” musicians — and we’re not just talking about Lily Allen and friends. Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the escort known as “Kristen” who was involved with former NY Governor Eliot Spitzer, is herself an aspiring singer. Due to the attention she’s gotten over the last few days, her songs “What We Want” and “Move Ya Body” are number one and two on online music site AmieStreet.com. They’re not groundbreaking, and some of the lyrics are questionable, but Ashley’s songs aren’t terrible. With the right lyricist and producer, she could totally have a hit. In fact, we think she’s already better than some female artists out there. See which songs “What We Want” trumps after the jump… Keep reading »
From Lily Allen to Amy Winehouse, everybody wants Mark Ronson. And we want him too! Especially after seeing him last night on the Brit Awards (the UKâ€™s equivalent of the Grammys), where he took home the Award for Best British Male. Ronson performed in a tight, 60′s soul-style blue suit, with his name in lights, and the dashing music man showed us how good he is with his hands, accompanying artists like Amy Winehouse on a 12-string guitar. The DJ turned producer has also created two critically acclaimed solo albums and started his own record label, but Mark still hasnâ€™t found what heâ€™s looking for. Just last week, he split with his long-term girlfriend. If you canâ€™t get enough of Mark, here he is in multiples, playing all the members of the backing band in the video for his cover of Radioheadâ€™s â€œJustâ€.
Lily Allen has reportedly been dropped by Agent Provocateur as the face/body of its lingerie, and her ads (featuring her in a corset and stockings) haven’t even run yet. The company’s bosses, Joe Corree and Serena Rees, are in the midst of a divorce, and supposedly can’t agree on anything, including Lily. This is a downside of working with your significant other.

Sure, from square watermelons to batteries that run on pee, Japanese culture can seem a little backwards to us Americans. On Valentine’s Day, traditionally, Japanese women give the men they’ve had their eye on chocolates. Then a month later, on White Day, the men have the same opportunity to gift give. While the holiday pairing sounds middle school-style romantic, it doubles the amount of days singles want to die. But luckily, Tokyo-based cosmetics marketers Hime & Company understand that flying solo is hard to do. In addition to sick days and vacation, the sensitive CEO, Miki Hiradate, offers his employees paid leave after bad break ups: up to the age of 24, you get one day a year, 25-30 years of age get two days, 30 and up’s get three days, plus two extra mornings off for everyone to shop away their sorrows! It’s like the man knows we want to curl up and cry while surfing the internet for cute shoes. Keep reading »
