Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Gossip To Backstreet Boys

Every once in a blue moon, a Tuesday will roll around when the album releases are so good that you think about ditching work just so you can download everything and give it all a good listen, with no spreadsheets or TPS report to kill your buzz. Today, my friends, is one of those Tuesdays. After the jump, check out the new offerings from Air, Gossip, Built To Spill, The Raveonettes and, yes, the Backstreet Boys. Keep reading »

Is It Fair For Mya To Compete On “Dancing With The Stars”?


Mya Harrison earned 27 points for her rumba dance on last night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” The judges gushed on and on about her great performance, which I have to say was very sexy and entertaining. But ever since Stacy Keibler competed on “DWTS” in season two I’ve had the same question: Is it fair for trained dancers to compete against Average Joe celebrities? Keep reading »

We Will Be Able To Watch DJ AM’s “Gone Too Far” After All


It was tragic when DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, died of a drug overdose in late August, relapsing after more than 11 years of sobriety. One of the horrible wrinkles in the story was that he’d recently filmed a TV series called “Gone Too Far” for MTV, an “Intervention“-style show where he helped addicts down the path to recovery. After a lot of consideration, MTV has decided to air the show after all, starting next Monday at 10 p.m. “Adam felt strongly that by doing this series, he could help other addicts who were at a crisis point to get sober,” his family said in an MTV statement about the decision. “It is our hope that through airing the show that people will get to see the side of Adam that we knew and loved, not just the celebrity DJ, but the honest and caring person who gave so much of himself to help others.” Check out the final interview Goldstein did about the show, above. Get ready to choke up when he says, “Part of me is like who am I—I’m a DJ—but I have to remember this person is going to die and their family has been allowing this to happen.” [ABC News]

What do you think—does Goldstein’s death add a whole ‘nother level of poignancy to the show or is airing the show terribly morbid?

Why I’m Secretly Excited For “Secret Girlfriend”


www.comedycentral.com


What happens when some cads cruise for boobs and document their shenanigans YouTube-style? A ridiculous new Comedy Central series called “Secret Girlfriend.” The show is shot in a first-person format, making the viewer the central character in the lives of a 20-something single guy, his two besties/roommates and the two women in his life he’s trying to keep a secret from each other—psycho ex, Mandy, and new girlfriend, Jessica. I know I should be offended by the idiotic and childish pursuit of female tail, but for some reason all I can do is laugh my ass off at these guys. The fact that these clueless idiots actually think they can get laid is hilarious enough to diffuse their offensive antics. Check out the trailer—I’ll definitely be watching the premiere tomorrow night at 10:30 p.m. My fave one-liner? “I’m telling you … my penis looks really weird,” used as a pick-up line. Amazing!

Tyra Banks, Hilary Duff, And The 90 Bazillion Guest Stars On CW Shows


The CW has gone guest-star crazy! On last night’s episode of “Gossip Girl,” Hilary Duff and Tyra Banks both had major roles, and socialite/designer Tory Burch popped up in a cameo, as did Georgina Chapman, the designer for Marchesa. Hilary is Dan’s new love interest; she plays actress Olivia Burke who enrolls at NYU and becomes Vanessa’s roommate. She was reasonably decent, but since she’s sticking around for a few episodes, we certainly hope that they’ll upgrade her wardrobe from that ill-fitting t-shirt she donned for most of last night’s episode. We certainly don’t watch “Gossip Girl” for tees! The real story, however, was Tyra. Keep reading »

Alexander McQueen Show Live Streams Today


In just an hour, fashion designer Alexander McQueen will be live streaming his spring/summer 2010 collection online. Seeing as McQueen is a master of the runway spectacle — previous shows have featured paint-spewing robots, models as chess pieces, and Kate Moss via hologram — it should be an eyeful. The show is titled “Plato’s Atlantis,” and Lee and co. have been teasing the process on Twitter, from model castings to last-minute preparations. The show begins at 8:15 p.m. Paris time — or 2:15 p.m. EST and 11:15 a.m. PST. Tune in! [SHOWStudio] Keep reading »

MERRIme.com: Episode 15

On the season finale of “MERRIme.com,” Mr. Weisman interrupts Merri’s “binge” and reinstates his original ultimatum. MAC and Jess comfort a very down-and-out Merri, when a familiar face arrives on her doorstep. Who could it be? Cliffhanger, cliffhanger? [MERRIme.com] Keep reading »

Nancy Grace Puts Jon Gosselin In His Place

Jon Gosselin just got served — and not by soon-to-be ex-wife Kate! The reality TV dad spent the weekend reportedly ransacking the couple’s joint bank account (he allegedly took $200,000, leaving Kate and the kids with a mere $1,000), and on Monday he brought his sideshow to “The Insider.” But he met his match in Nancy Grace because the “HLN” host would have none of it. Watch the video above as she rips him a new one, calling him out for his egotism and his dalliances with younger women. Keep reading »

Letterman Apologizes, Says He Has “His Work Cut Out” For Himself


After last week’s admission that he’d been blackmailed for having sex with former “Late Show” employees, David Letterman issued a mea culpa on last night’s show, apologizing to his staff and to his wife, Regina Lasko. First he delivered a monologue that was funnier than it was awkward, in which he quipped: “Right now, I would give anything to be hiking on the Appalachian Trail. I get in the car this morning and the navigation lady wasn’t speaking to me. Ouch!” Then Letterman went on to say that he hadn’t thought out how his admission last week would affect his staffers and he apologized for the relentless harassment they’ve endured from the press for the last few days. “I would like to set the record straight,” he said. “No, I am not having sex with these women. Those episodes are in the past. My apologies for subjecting them to that vulnerability and to being browbeaten and humiliated.” This brings up an interesting point: How many current female staffers are now being accused of having a sexual relationship with Dave? How many women who have earned promotions throughout the years are now suspected of having climbed the ranks horizontally? And I wonder if any of them have had any ‘splainin’ to do to their partners at home. Keep reading »

Cats And Dogs Take Over “Paper Planes”

“Paper Planes” by M.I.A. One of the catchiest songs of the last, oh, five years, only with dogs barking and cats screeching instead of gun shots and cash registers. Awesome. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
