Jennifer Lopez hosted and performed on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and as you might expect of the totally meh singer/actress, the episode was only so-so. However, the opening skit, which spoofed the catastrophe known as “We Are The World 25″ (which was filled with “half famous randoms”) was hilarrrrrious and J.Lo herself did a pretty dead-on impression of Rihanna. (As was Kristin Wiig’s Gwen Stefani.) Check it out above. Keep reading »
US Weekly reports that Brazil’s Secretariat for Women’s Affairs is calling for a sexy beer commercial starring Paris Hilton to be pulled. The commercial advertising Devassa beer — which means “debauched” or “lewd” in Portuguese — features the skimpily-clad Hilton rubbing a can of beer sensually over her body while standing before a window of tongue-wagging onlookers. (Perhaps too much Devassa would explain what the hell Paris was doing when she was photographed on all fours recently?) “It’s an ad that devalues women — in particular, blond women,” the spokeswoman for the Secretariat claimed.
But what Brazil clearly does not understand is that here in America we have a rich cultural history of using women’s bodies and the promise of sex to advertise alcoholic beverages. Ugh. Get some frickin’ cultural sensitivity, Brazil. [US Weekly] Keep reading »
Fans can finally stop speculating, because Carly Simon finally revealed who inspired her hit song “You’re So Vain” in an acoustic version that’s on her upcoming album, Never Been Gone. And it’s not a former lover, like Warren Beatty or Mick Jagger, as you’d expect. Surprisingly, record label executive David Geffen was the inspiration. Geffen was at the helm of Elektra Records when Simon was on that label, and the lyrics could hint at Simon’s anger over Geffen’s choice to focus more on another singer-songwriter, Joni Mitchell.

I really love a biopic, even when I’m not aware of the subject’s backstory beforehand. So I’ve marked my calendar, making March 19 the day of “The Runaways.” Not only does this film tell the story of the short-lived band that made Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) rock stars, but it also has some hot-ass and glamorous ’70s fashions.

Am I alone in thinking it’s hilarious that the same week she’s dropped by her label, Jennifer Lopez is the host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live”? No? Thought so. Keep reading »
Jessica Simpson makes her long-awaited return to TV on March 14 when “The Price of Beauty” debuts on VH1. On the show, Jessica explores the question: What makes women in different countries feel beautiful? This is the same program with the theme song written by Jessica’s maybe-boyfriend Billy Corgan, that required $25,000 worth of hair and makeup for Jessica per episode, and had her storming down the runway at the Olzem Suer fashion show in Paris.
Do you think it’ll open people’s eyes and change our perspectives about beauty — or will it simply be another chance to watch Jessica acting silly on television? [via NY Post] Keep reading »
Yesterday on “Oprah,” Andrew and Cheri Young continued their “Ratting Out John Edwards
” book tour of doom, discussing everything from why they agreed to lie for the former-Senator/Presidential candidate, how Edwards has changed since 2004, and, of course, that infamous sex tape. In the clip above, Cheri seems super, well, psyched to give away some details, but stops short of saying anything really juicy — aside from the fact that Rielle was holding the camera in the vid, and Edwards knew
he was being taped. Call me nuts, but my dirty, nosey mind wants more specifics on those sex acts. But I’m a perv. Keep reading »
