The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “Top Model”‘s Creepy Michael Jackson-Inspired Photoshoot

I’ll be honest, last night’s episode of “America’s Next Top Model” was entirely WTF so this recap is going to be short, because, you guys, Tyra made the models channel different eras of Michael Jackson. Some of the models had to wear blackface! (Early MJ, obvs.) And some had to wear heavy makeup that mimicked hi…

The Formula For An Amazing News Item: Whitney Houston, A Monkey And Toe Sucking

Every so often a news item comes along that defies all reason and exceeds all expectations of news greatness. Today, I found one such story. The headline reads: Whitney Houston Once Got Intimate With Michael Jackson’s Pet Monkey Bubbles.” What does that mean exactly? It means that David Gest (that weird looking fellow who wa…

Jay-Z Says Beyoncé Reminds Him Of Michael Jackson

“What I’ve learned from [Beyoncé] is similar to what I learned from Michael Jackson—and I know that’s blasphemy to compare the two because Mike was such an innovator, but I think she’s like the second coming. Y’know, the hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows. It just makes you want to work…

A Michael Jackson Perfume And Cologne?!?! No!

I have never had a desire to smell like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, or Mariah Carey—so I know I am not the target market for celebrity perfumes. Celebrity colognes make even less sense to me—I just can’t imagine wanting to smell like George Clooney, Tim McGraw, or Antonio Banderas. Apparently, I don’t know what I…

Even Though Michael Jackson Is Gone, We Can Still Hold His Hand

“Hold My Hand,” featuring Akon, is the late Michael Jackson’s first posthumous single release from the upcoming album Michael. I actually like the song, but I could do without the “happy/sad children motif.” Perhaps not the most flattering choice. Anyhow, R.I.P., MJ.

This Year’s Most Popular Baby Names Are Pop Culture Soaked

When I was a kid, I wanted to name my first daughter Madison. Why? Because I’d just seen “Splash” and thought Daryl Hannah was just the awesomest. Little did I realize that zillions of other women were thinking the same thing and there was a big spike in the number of Madisons born that year.

10 Reasons We’re Obsessed With Blanket Jackson

After a certain point, the answer to “What Would Suri Do?” just isn’t terribly challenging. This is why we must find new child icons to obsess over. And it looks like Blanket Jackson is the Shiloh Jolie-Pitt of the Jackson clan, stealing all the thunder from the other less pouty children. Even though his sister…

Chris Brown Is Still Crying About Michael Jackson’s Death

Last night on the BET Awards, Chris Brown — you know, that guy who beat up Rihanna and fancies himself “the next Michael Jackson” — performed a tribute to the late King of Pop. Brown was so “overwhelmed” by “emotion” — i.e. he saw an opportunity to draw attention to himself in a desperate…

Where Were You When You Heard Michael Jackson Died?

Today marks one year since the King of Pop died. I remember — as I’m sure almost everyone else does, too — exactly where I was when I heard the news. I’d just walked into a jewelry store in the East Village with my now-husband to pick up our wedding bands. Our wedding was le…

The chimp basically just stared at her from behind the bars of his Florida sanctuary while LaToya got all emotional, making us feel a tad sorry for both parties.
