While Steven Tyler has been rocking the man legging since he made love in an elevator, now his spandex groin gauntlet has been picked up by couture designers and tastemakers in Europe. Tights aren’t just for super heroes and glam rockers anymore! Over the past few years, influential designers like Calvin Klein, Marni, Givency, John Galliano, Bernhard Willhelm, and Alexander McQueen have all sent male models down the runway in meggings, aka man leggings. Fashionistas are already calling it a full-on trend as comedian Russell Brand, Marc Jacobs, and British GQ senior editor Jonathan Heath have been spotted in the skinniest of pants. Heck, Russell can’t stop wearing his Sass & Bide ruched leggings made for ladies! Keep reading »
The great thing about a new year? You get to make a fresh start. And once the champagne has been finished and the confetti has fallen, it’s time to put those resolutions into action — well, at least for a week or two. We mere mortals aren’t the only ones resolving to hit the gym more frequently, call Granny more often and save more of that paycheck. Celebrities from Britney Spears to a duchess (and we don’t mean Fergie) are vowing to make some ch-ch-changes. Here’s who’s doing what and why…
After a helluva year, the pop tart has amazingly landed on her dancing feet, but she says there’s still work to be done. “I would like to stop worrying so much [in 2009],” she told Glamour, “because I worry all the time. And to learn how to be happier, just in general. I have to learn to take things not so seriously. And to stop biting my nails!” Keep reading »

Russell Brand quotes Oscar Wilde as easily as he rocks his ridiculously teased hair. He’s sexy, he’s suave, but, above all, he’s smart and he isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Despite getting flack for openly teasing the Jonas Brothers about their chastity rings and the “retarded cowboy President” Bush at the VMA’s last night, I thought [Me too! -- Editor] Brand stole the show with his off-handed hilarious comments — of course an accent makes everything sound better. Sure, the hole in the ozone is probably caused by the amount of hairspray he uses on his hair-do, but damn the boy is fine and funny! From guyliner to his groovy anti-establishment attitude, who is this one man British invasion named Russell Brand?

Did the budget get majorly cut for this year’s award show? Sure seemed like it, given the scaled down event space and the horrendous lineup of performers. Host Russell Brand was either hysterically funny or horribly flat, depending on who you ask, but I think everyone can agree that the British comedian (known for his role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall) was basically off the teleprompter the majority of the time, inciting anger in teen virgins (like Jordin Sparks and the Jonas Brothers) and Republicans (we’re sure Speidi didn’t appreciate his firestorm of insults spewed about President Bush and Sarah Palin). Suffice it to say, if Sparks, the Jonas Brothers, and MTV producers have anything to say about it, Brand will be getting a full body cavity check the next time he goes through immigration — that is, if he’s ever allowed in the States again.

Britney Spears filmed two promotional spots for the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, alongside host Russell Brand (from Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Though she’s nominated for an award (Best Female Video for “Piece Of Me”), the pop star, who is recovering from, uh, a rough year, won’t be making a “comeback” performing at this year’s award show on September 7th. Last year, Britney made a serious fool out of herself, sleepwalking through an atrocious performance of “Gimme More”, an event which signaled months’ worth of head-shaving, umbrella-wielding, psychotic breakdown-ing mayhem. But she seems so much better now, like the Britney we know and love! Last year it seemed like MTV set the star up to fail, hoping she would falter for ratings’ sake, but we think she should come back this year and knock some socks off. One more promo, after the jump… [MTV] Keep reading »
