Top Twenty

She sings as off-key as me, but Sophie's cuteness factor more than makes up for it. The three-year-old YouTube superstar took singing babies to a whole new level with her rendition of the top 20 countdown. Isn't she adorable?

Merging Sounds

Everyone in Hollywood is clamoring for a slice of Justin Bieber. The 16-year-old superstar is the one to see and be seen with. The latest star to capitalize on Justin's massive following is Kanye West. The rapper, who is releasing his new album, colaborated with Justin and Raekwon on Runaway Love. I'm not loving the track, but I'm sure the teen girls are. Do you like it?


Proving who's boss, the GLEE kids take slushing into their own hands this season. The sugary drink, known to stain clothes and destroy self esteem, is now an iconic symbol thanks to its major role in the show. The advertising campaign centered on the drink only confirms its place in pop culture, and hints that the crooners will rule the school this year. Don't you love the new promo shot?

These Are My Cofessions

Fresh from her stint in rehab, Lindsay Lohan is finally acknowledging her demons. In the October issue of Vanity Fair, the 24-year-old blames Hollywood for her tragic downfall. The thrice-rehabbed and once-jailed starlet admits to making mistakes and "dabbling in certain things." Blaming her young age and curiosity, Lindsay accepts says she got involved with the wrong people.

"So many people around me would say they cared for the wrong reasons," Lindsay told the magazine. "A lot of people were pulling from me, taking from me and not giving. I had a lot of people that were there for me for, you know, the party."

The former child star, who hopes to fix her party-girl image, referenced another reformed bad girl in the interview. Claiming she would "look up to those girls...the Britneys and whatever," Lindsay admits to wanting "to be like that." If that refers to shaving her head and dating a paparazzi, then let's be happy that Judge Marsha Revel intervened when she did.

While Lindsay's ability to regain control of her life remains to be seen, she seems to be quite optimistic in her star power. Famous last words: "I know that I'm a damn good actress."

All Hail Emmy

A dwindling viewership was threatening its place on network television, but the Emmy Awards bounced back with last night's superb presentation. With comedian Jimmy Fallon as host, the Emmys did the unexpected and finally took viewers breaths away. I've heard some mixed reviews, but for true television addicts, last night was flooded with memories. From the gleeful opening to the tearful (for me) reunion of ER's Doug Ross (George Clooney) and Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies), last night was my television heaven. For entertainment factor, I would choose the Emmys over the Oscars any day. What did you think of the telecast?

If you missed out on all the excitement, be sure to catch up on all things Emmy here.

Cha Cha

Reality television is gearing up for another season of glitter and skin with the new season of Dancing with the Stars. Known for dressing their contestants in barely-there, shimmering, custom-made designs, this cast will surely leave little to the imagination.

Leading the pack are this year's male leads: Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Baywatch star David Hasselhoff, NBA champion Rick Fox, NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and rapper Kyle Massey.

The ladies: The Hills alum Audrina Patridge, singer Brandy, Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey, the Brady Bunch's Florence Henderson, comedian Margaret Cho and teen mom Bristol Palin.

The competition begins on September 21. Who do you think will take home this year's mirror ball trophy?

The Tribute

Last night's tribute to the year's fallen shows was any television addicts dream. Rather than quietly mourn the loss of iconic characters like Jack Bauer and Jack Shephard in solitude, Jimmy Fallon and the Emmy Awards did it in style. Channeling Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Green Day and Boyz II Men, 24, Law & Order and Lost got the send-offs they deserve.

Reunited And It Feels So Good

For ER junkies, last night's Emmy Awards brought back sweet memories. The Doug Ross/Carol Hathaway relationship was the focus of the first few seasons, and fans have longed for a reunion between actors George Clooney and Julianna Margulies. We finally got our moments at this year's Emmys, when Julianna presented her former on-screen love with the Humanitarian Award. When the duo graced the stage, all I could think about was this iconic moment...

Bell Bottom

With her Cheerios uniform at home, Glee star Dianna Agron was the belle of the ball. Unfortunately, the star's floral organza Carolina Herrera was a bit too reminicent of a church bell for me, but her make-up was impeccable. What do you think of the gown?

Back to Black

One year after baring her belly on the red carpet, Heidi Klum proves she's the comeback queen. Notorious for regaining her figure instantaneously, the supermodel was the envy of all moms. What do you think of her red carpet style?

Body by Breakup

Single and ready to mingle, reality darling Kelly Osbourne stunned in a flattering Tony Ward gown. Her breakup with fiance Luke Worrall was clearly the best remedy for her yo-yo dieting. Eat your heart out!

Young at Heart

Obviously reminiscing about the '70s tie-dye trend, Betty White looked chipper on the red carpet. The 88-year-old actress has been in the business for years, but it wasn't until last year that she made a splash with the younger generation. With Facebook campaigns and hosting Saturday Night Live behind her, Betty will only to continue to see her star rise.

Better in Black

Freshmans on the red carpet, Glee's standout stars Cory Monteith and Lea Michele looked every bit the sophisticated stars. While he looked dapper in a Giorgio Armani tuxedo, the birthday girl looked gorgeous in her Oscar de la Renta ruffled gown. Two of the best dressed, without a doubt.

Sue Meet Jane

Sharp-talking coach Jane Lynch ditched the polyester tracksuit for an Ali Rahimi amethyst gown to accept her first Emmy award. The best supporting actress kept the audience in stitches during her speech, proving once again why we love her, and her love and creator Ryan Murphy. Congratulations!

The Beautiful

Jimmy Fallon summed it up best, stating, "she is beautiful, she is beautiful and I also think she is beautiful." The stunner of the year, Sofia Vegara, looked dazzling in her shimmering Carolina Herrera gown. Absolute perfection.

Mother Dearest

A strong contender for worst dressed, reality mom Kate Gosselin appeared on the red carpet in a dress straight from the Walmart fall collection. I'm not sure where she found this sinner, but Kate should stay away from the prom section in the future.

Rosh Hashana Song

Fast Forward to 00:40
Taking the Jewish holidays to a whole new level, the Community Synagogue fused religion with pop culture in this hilarious video. The rabbi, cantor and executive committee of the Port Washington, New York synagogue made their annual "come to shul" pitch unique by singing a customized version of Lady Gaga's Telephone. While it's not likely that the Rosh Hashana Song will be adapted at other places of worship, it's interesting to see what the reform movement can do with a pop star and some well-planned harmonization. My machzor is already waiting to be read this year - is yours?

Barbie Girl

After claiming to love her new private life, Heidi Montag was spotted frolicking in Costa Rica. Showing off what her late doctor, Frank Ryan, gave her, the reality star's skimpy bikini left nothing to the imagination. With her nose bandage in place, Heidi ensured that her face doesn't "fall off like Michael Jackson's." The recently single life size Barbie doll admitted that her gigantic G breasts were a mistake, but she seems to be handling the excruciating pain just fine. What do you think of Heidi's recent claims?

Third Time's The Charm

No secret to scandals or mugshot, Paris Hilton smiled for the cameras during her latest drug bust. The heiress, who was arrested Friday night in Las Vegas for possession of a controlled substance, hasn't learned the art of being inconspicuousness yet. Police pulled over Paris' vehicle after smelling mirjuana smoke, but what they really found was cocaine in her purse. This was Paris' third drug-related incident (marijuana in Corsica, France and marijuana at the World Cup in South Africa), proving that she really should invest in some new techniques. Are you surprised she was finally charged?

Getting Their Gleek On

Judging from this just released behind the scenes tape, the cast of Glee isn't letting the grueling production schedule damper their spirits. The tight-knit crew joke around on set, making me wish that I was part of the party. With all the cattiness behind the scenes on other television shows, it's nice to see that this cast knows how to have fun. Aren't they adorable?

Mr. and Mrs. Sasha Fierce

Looking fierce in their coordinated resort wear, Beyonce and Jay-Z are the picture of perfection. Summering in Saint-Tropez, France clearly agrees with the multi-talented superstars, but I'm itching for another duet. Who can forget this surreal performance?

Catching Up

Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-stars Michelle Trachtenberg and Sarah Michelle Gellar looked sleek and sophisticated while shopping in Los Angeles. The duo have been focusing on their own projects lately, with Michelle starring on Gossip Girl and Sarah focusing on daughter Charlotte, but it's nice to see them spending time together. After all, the originators of the vampire trend must stick together, right?

The Latest Dancing Stars

America's obsession with dancing celebrities continues as the rumor mill gears up for the premiere of Dancing with the Stars. Although the wannabe A-Listers won't shimmy their way onto the dance floor until September 20, speculation is already beginning over who will vie for the mirror ball trophy. The short list includes:
  • Often ridiculed for her ballooning weight, the calorie burning rehersals may be just what Big Life star Kirstie Alley needs to shed the pounds.
  • His day-to-day activities of gym, tanning and laundry (GTL) will take a back seat as Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino showcases his abs on the dance floor.
  • He's still a big star in Germany, but former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff has a shot at fame in America this season.
  • Most famous for two failed relationships with Desperate Housewives actress Nicolette Sheridan, singer Michael Bolton will attempt to raise his star status.
  • After a rhinoplasty procedure left Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey unrecognizable, the actress is hoping that fans will remember her for more than her on-screen romance with Patrick Swayze. 
  • Occupying the sports seat is Dallas Cowboys' Troy Aikman
  • No stranger to reality television, Audrina Patridge bid The Hills goodbye in preparation for her dancing debut.
  • Hoping to add dancer to her resume is singer/actress Brandy, who you may remember from such scandals as the deadly car accident.
  • Florence Henderson is leaving The Brady Bunch behind, although I hope they make an appearance in the audience. 
  • Let's hope her dancing is better than her acting - teen mom and staunch abstinence advocate Bristol Palin is confirmed. 
What do you think about the rumored cast list? 

Something to Scream About

The fourth installment of Scream is relying on old favorites and big names to draw in the crowds. Not content on leaving the original cast - Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette - to bring box office gold, the cult classic is giving the audience some fresh faces. Anna Paquin, Kristen Bell, Hayden Panettiere, Adam Brody and Emma Roberts will all be running away from the mask. Scream 4 hits theaters on April 15, 2011 - will you be there?

All Smiles

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise tend to rule the celebrity mother-daughter category, but Jennifer Garner and Violet Affleck are edging their way into the top spot. While the Cruise ladies are known for their fashion and grim faces, the female Afflecks are all smiles. A definite contrast from Katie and Suri's recent appearance in Toronto, Jennifer and Violet horsed around during a carriage ride through New York's Central Park. The moms and their mini-mes will continue to steal the show, but which duo is your favorite?

The Twit Network

Hollywood is making an overly dramatic film about the early years of Facebook, and Twitter fans are responding with an overly dramatic trailer about Twitter. In what I'm boldly calling the best parody of the year, The Twit Network is Rated Awesome. From the Gregory Brothers' "I can Tweet" song to the uncanny Jesse Eisenberg impersonation, I cannot get enough of the clip. What do you think?

Spotlight: Harlow

Harlow Winter Kate Madden is no stranger to the spotlight. Featured on the cover of People at one month, the 2/12 year old tops celebrity baby lists, has two fashion lines named after her (mom Nicole Richie's House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate) and appeared in the celebrity remake of We Are the World. Now, the youngster is being used by dad Joel Madden and his band Good Charlotte to promote their new album, Like It's Her Birthday. Family man Joel left the "sex sells" mantra behind and is using his best weapon, Harlow, to sell records. Regardless of whether or not I buy the album, Good Charlotte has my attention!

Jail Bird Free To Fly

The power of celebrity struck again, as Lindsay Lohan was released from her court-ordered rehabilitation. The troubled actress, who was sentenced to serve 90 days in jail followed by 90 days in rehab, only remained at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles for 22 days. Sprinting out the back door to a chauffeur driven car, Lindsay's first moments of freedom were spent on the phone with her mother.

Although Lindsay and her family were vocal about her not having a substance abuse problem, the press told a different story. Weekly, pictures and stories about Lindsay partying too hard, passing out or binging were displayed in the tabloid magazines and television shows. According to a TMZ report, however, Lindsay's doctors "have already concluded her psychiatric problems are not nearly as severe as first thought. In addition, the doctors do not believe the drug dependency issues are as severe a they first thought." With her court-mandated rehab now over, let's hope the doctors are right and Lindsay is not an addict.

Celebrities being let out of jail or rehab early isn't a new concept. Who can forget Nicole Richie's 82-minute jail stay or Paris Hilton's 24 days served? Being a celebrity has perks, and thankfully for Lindsay, they applied to her.

The socialite responsible for ushering in the chihuahua generation has moved on to a new breed. Leaving Tinkerbell behind, Paris Hilton stepped out with a pug while shopping at Fred Segal's in Beverly Hills. While she's no longer the trendsetter she once was, I'm sure Paris' new pooch will have a positive effect on the pug sales in the future. What do you think of her new furry friend?

The often ridiculed Snuggie is my absolute favorite household item. As a television addict and constant multitasker who's always feeling chilly, I rely on my Snuggie to keep my body warm and leave my hands free for blogging, cleaning and cooking. The machine washable material makes it easy to keep clean, leaving you no excuse to take off your blanket with arms. The new ad campaign, Snugarena, only increases my love for Snuggie. What do you think of the Snuggie phenomenon?

Irretrievably Broken

A divorce has been granted thanks to Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren's "irretrievably broken" marriage. The world has been anxiously waiting for the Swedish beauty to bid the pro golfer goodbye following the shocking revelations of Tiger's multiple mistresses. While the mistresses kept coming forward, we kept waiting for Elin to make her move out of the marriage.

Anyone who has taken a public relations course or has seen The Good Wife knows that a wife's support is the only surefire way to regain the public's support and trust. Elin's failure to appear at Tiger's highly publicized events (public apology, first golf tournament) was a sign that she had not moved past the betrayal. With his public image in shambles, Tiger's endorsement deals continued to be at risk and his future as the one of the highest earning sports player was compromised.

While the divorce won't guarantee Tiger any leniency in the press, it puts Elin in a positive position. Often seen behind the scenes, press-shy Elin now has her chance to shine. By putting the children first and leaving Tiger high and dry, Elin will captivate the world's support. No one wants to support a cheating spouse, especially when there's a innocent children to care for. Another bonus for the former Mrs.Woods? A substantial settlement. No word yet on how much of Tiger's $900 million fortune she'll inherit, but I'm sure it will be plentiful. What do you think of the sage?

Rest In Peace

Life took an unexpected turn for Martin Short today, as his wife Nancy Dolman passed away. Married for 30 years, the comedic duo's time together was cut short on Saturday morning when the Los Angles City Fire Department responded to an emergency call at Martin's Pacific Palisades home. Nancy was diagnosed with cancer in 2007. Sending my condolences to Martin and children Katherine, 27, Oliver, 24, and Henry, 20. RIP Nancy.

Look Both Ways

Spotted back to school shopping are Kate and her army of eight. While the Gosselin matriarch is usually seen solo, she enlisted Cara, Mady, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Colin, Leah and Joel to help with the heavy lifting. As a school supply junkie, I know how those bills can add up. Any guesses as to much the Gosselin eight spend on their back-to-school goods?

Mum's The Word

Spotted: The cast of Gossip Girl leaving the prissy Upper East Side behind for some fun and games on set. Highlights include Ed Westwick's British accent, Taylor Momsen cracking a smile, Chace Crawford joking about nip slips and Leighton Meester forgetting her words. Who's your favorite Gossiper

Blast From The '90s Past

The microblogging information highway continues to bring bloggers and journalists newsworthy stories. While the information may be blasted in limiting 140-character tweets, the bite size news gives us plenty of content.

The latest story is courtesy of former child star Candace Cameron Bure. Although she will forever be known as DJ Tanner from Full House, the wife, mother of three and Jesus lover is still keeping her fading persona relevant. Her latest must-see tweet is a blast from the '90s past. "You asked for it!!! Urkel & DJ are back. @jaleel_white and Jeff Franklin creator of Full House," she TweetPhoto'ed.
The reference of Full House and Family Matters in one tweet/picture is too much for stuck-in-television-past people like me. While I wish DJ was still wearing her jean overalls and Urkel was rocking his suspenders and glasses, this picture is the perfect blend of old meets new. I propose that the next reunion includes fan favorite Kimmy Gibler. Who do you want to see?

Mommy-Baby Bonding

With genes that keep on giving, Angelina Jolie proudly displayed her beauty of a daughter, Vivienne Marcheline, in Budapest. On a location scout for an upcoming film, the world's most famous mom made sure to find the time to bond with her youngest child. With a haircut rivaling her tomboy sister Shiloh, girly-girl Viv will certainly be a heartbreaker. Which Jolie-Pitt is your favorite? I'm torn between the original, Maddox, and the spunky one, Zahara.

Island Time

Proving stars really are just like us, the ladies Cruise spent their Saturday bouncing around Toronto Island and Centreville Amusement Park. Katie Holmes was casually cool in relaxed jeans, fall-ready brown boots, a nautical tee and a comfy zip-up, while fashionista Suri looked darling in her red dress and purple ballet flats.

The holy Cruise trio (yes, Tom) have been fixtures on the Toronto scene while filming The Kennedys. Visiting hotspots like Yorkdale Shopping Mall, Air Canada Centre, Fairmont Royal York, Baskin Robbins and Hotel Gelato, the Cruises have certainly made Toronto their home away from home. Have you spotted the stars?

Blood Love

Lucky-in-love co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer left the vampire drama behind as they said their "I do's" on Saturday night. The True Blood stars, who have been dating since 2008, exchanged vows at a private residence in Malibu, Ca. beneath a tent across the street from the beach. While the status of their on-screen relationship is unknown, fans can rejoice now that Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse are officially man and wife in this realm. Congratulations to the happy couple.

Tales of Plastic

While most wanna-be stars release their sex tapes to help jump-start their careers, Spencer Pratt is using sex to revive his. The dwindling reality star has seen his place in pop culture fade since announcing his separation from plastic wife Heidi Montag. Desperate to reaffirm his status as self-proclaimed "king," Spencer is negotiating the sale of his and Heidi's sex tape with porn company Vivid Entertainment. "I've been making films since I was in the 7th grade," Pratt told Us Weekly. "I'm looking forward to people seeing my directorial debut!"

A man of many talents, Spencer is also writing a tell-all book about his relationship with Montag. Based on his last book, How to be Famous, we know Spencer is not a literary genius, but it seems he does have some juicy details to share. Heidi revealed that she might sue to stop the book, begging the question: what dirt does Spencer have on Heidi?

Eat Nothing

Three months after giving birth, reality star Bethenny Frankel has a new motto: "Taste everything, eat nothing." The notoriously petite star and author of Naturally Thin and Skinnygirl Dish appears super-skinny in her itty-bitty bikini, putting all of us non-moms to shame. While I doubt her drastic weight loss is healthy, I must admit that Bethenny, 39, looks amazing for her age. What do you think of the new mom's body?

Hockey Wife

Looking every bit the fairy tale princess, Hilary Duff married her hockey player prince, Mike Comrie, in a private ceremony. From her Vera Wang dress to her romantic "I do's," the newly-minted Mrs. Comrie shared all the details of her big day with OK! magazine. The flowers, the dress and the make-up were perfection, but I wish Hilary had opted against the giant beehive on her head. The height of the poof took away from the classic look. What do you think of Hilary's hair?

Aug 19, 2010

Miss Me

Hometown hero Drake keeps on bringing the hits. His latest music video for Miss Me is edgier than his last few releases, but it already has the fans wanting more. What do you think of the video?

Britney on Britney

It's the blonds against the music in this exclusive picture from the Glee set. The pop star we've all been yearning for, Britney Spears, is driving her fans wild with upcoming guest spot, pictures and tweets. The latest puts Spears in a familiar position. Hint: "All my GLEEKERS in the crowd, Grab a partner take it down." Still scratching your head? Think back to Spears' risque video for Me Against the Music with Madonna - amazing, right?

Details of Spears' character are under wrap, but cast member Harry Shum revealed that "she has a lot of fun dance tracks." Also leaked: creator Ryan Murphy hinted that Spears shows up as cast members hallucinate under anesthesia at the dentist John Stamos' office. Uncle Jesse and Britney Spears in the same episode? This season is just too good to be true.

Memory Lane

With the new season of Glee quickly approaching, The A List brings you some of the show's classic moments. The epic battles between cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) and glee club coach Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) are part of the reason us Gleeks keep tuning in for more. Are you excited for the new season?

Breaking Dawn

Twihards are anxiously awaiting the release of the final chapter in the saga, Breaking Dawn. Based on the interesting series of events in the book, the film should be nothing short of spectacular. To satisfy our need for vampires and werewolves, Wooden Nickel Shorts produced this hilarious spoof of Breaking Dawn's mystical events. The plot seems silly when Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner aren't present, but I instantly fell in love with this viral classic. What do you think of the video?

The Boys Are Back

Teenage dreams are about to get sweeter thanks to an upcoming ultimate boy band pairing. The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block are close to signing a deal with Live Nation for a joint 2001 U.S. tour. Recreating the boy band phenomenon is exactly what us twenty-somethings crave, and as a source stated, "It will be the ultimate ladies' night out." The tour is said to begin in the spring and I am already planning a road trip with some of Twitter ladies. Who's with us?

The Bachelor Pad

Whoever said accountants can't have fun obviously hasn't met my friend, J. When he's not crunching numbers, J can be seen on Yorkville's patios and settling in for a good night of quality smut. While Gossip Girl still reigns supreme in his books, The Bachelor Pad has been filling his summer television void. His insistent begging for me to tune in has failed, but I've invited him to share all the drama with you, my loyal A-Listers. Enjoy!

Photo via ABC
It’s often been said that trashy television makes for great television. If that is true, then ABC’s “The Bachelor Pad” should be considered the Mona Lisa of reality TV. I don’t often get the urge to write about things on the internet----usually I am content to just sit back and read The A List-----but after last night’s episode I felt compelled to share my thoughts with someone besides my brother(and yes we are two guys watching “The Bachelor Pad”. Alone.)

Just a bit of background on the show because this won’t be a lot of fun if no one knows what in the world I’m talking about. Former bachelor and bachelorette castoffs are living in a house and every week a guy and girl are sent home through Survivor style voting by the other gender. Challenges are set up whereby one girl and one guy winner get to take some people on a date and protect one of them from elimination. Last one left gets $250k. Think the “Real World/Road Rules Challenge”, just with people actually watching.

Naturally that leads to some of the female contestants using their, um, charms to ensure that they are safe from elimination or get chosen to go on the group dates. However even I was unprepared for the sheer amount of whoring that the first two episodes have brought us. Last week a girl named Elizabeth literally tried to blackmail a guy named Kovacs into pretending he loves her in front of the other girls because it would be “advantageous for him”. And she somehow isn’t even the most psycho girl in the house.

That was last week. Of course, there was plenty of crazy on last night’s episode to fill up a post like this one. I’ve narrowed it down to the top 5:

5) The challenge this week was a pie eating contest. Naturally, it ended up with girls vomiting into their hands when they couldn’t get to a garbage can fast enough. Special thanks to ABC for excessive use of the zoom function. It was lovely to see Gia licking the table that she had regurgitated onto a minute later.

4) The “cool people”(direct quote) start to form an alliance(or it might have been a gang, I couldn’t tell), so all of the “outliers”(another direct quote) decide to get together to try and look out for each other. In a related story, these people graduated from high school over two decades ago.

3) Gia, who wins the aforementioned pie eating contest and its immunity, promises to protect Craig, a fellow outlier. She goes so far as to literally tell Craig and his tidal wave haircut that exact plan that she had come up with. And then Wes (part of the cool team), tells Gia that he loves her and that she’s beautiful. That drunken confession is enough to get Gia to completely betray her alliance and protect Wes. She calls it a “moral decision”. I wonder how the serious boyfriend she has back home feels about her morals.

2) Gia is full of it. This deserves a second point. She starts talking about what a wonderful person Wes is and how “in a different life, he might be the person for me”. Again, she has a BOYFRIEND back home. Any person who’s ever been cheated on/seen cheating knows exactly where this is heading in the future. She screws her alliance of “outliers”(great book btw) just because some drunk Texan throws out some cheesy pickup lines? Words cannot describe this stupidity. Based on the promos for next week, it seems like I’m not done dissecting Gia’s classy decisions.

1) Gia decides that she can still save the plan and save Craig by getting all the uncool girls to vote for some guy named “Kiptyn”(if you had to ask if he’s a cool guy or not, you clearly have never visited an American prep school). Kiptyn hears about it, and manages to sway an outlier named Nicki to vote for Craig instead, simply by smiling and batting his eyelashes at her 651 times. This causes Craig to get voted off, which gives the cool guys the power, and puts uncool girls (like Nicki) on the firing line for next week. But hey, any time you can sacrifice $250k for a good looking guy who hits on you for 5 minutes, that’s something that you can’t turn down.

I love reality TV. See you next Monday Bachelor Pad.

The Mixtape

The free music just keeps on flowing. The latest release comes courtesy of Kanye West and it's already getting rave reviews. Click here to download the G.O.O.D Ass Mixtape and don't forget to let me know what you think of it!

16 and Pregnant

Following in her famous family's footsteps, future superstar Maddie Aldridge is ready for her close-up. The two-year-old daughter of Jamie Lynn Spears and niece of Britney Spears looked adorable in her neon green dress and trendy jean jacket. Nineteen-year-old Jamie-Lynn (she was 16 and pregnant!) looked age appropriate in her jean short-shorts, highlighter pink over-sized tee and bold red leather jacket. Her decision to stay out of the spotlight and raise Maddie in Louisiana helped Jamie-Lynn stay grounded, but has her role as "mom" changed your opinion of the star?

Black Swan

The long awaited trailer for TIFF front runner Black Swan is finally here. Directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as ballet rivals, the dark film should be on everyone's must-see list. What do you think of the story?

Sink Your Teeth Into This

This tumultuous threesome isn't afraid to shed a little blood. Continuing their trend of risque magazine covers, Rolling Stone continues to push the limits with their new True Blood trio. Show stars Alexander Skaarsgard (Eric), Anna Paquin (Sookie) and Stephen Moyer (Bill) unleash their inhibitions and display their primal instincts for the magazine. What do you think of the cover?

Gleek Out

Not watching the new season of Glee is punishable by slushie. After being doused in the cold drink by the cool kids, the McKinley High glee club is taking revenge on their attackers. According to Vulture, FOX plans to use the image of slushing in print, on-air and online ad campaigns for the show. Glee's iconic image will be thrust across your computers and television screens, engaging you in the spirit of the show. What do you think of the campaign?

New Katy Perry

She's already impressed us with California Gurls and Teenage Dream, but Katy Perry is now giving us some extraterrestrial material. The It girl's new track, E.T. just leaked, and I'm loving it. Download it here and let me know your thoughts!

Suri, Suri, Suri

The definite Marsha Brady of the Cruise clan, Suri has been living life in the fast lane. Choosing her own wardrobe since she was one-and-a-half, the too-cute fashionista has captivated her famous parents and Hollywood onlookers. Those big brown eyes are enough to warm dad Tom Cruise's heart, so much so that he branded his stark-white Nike's with Suri's Daddy and refers to his youngest as his "fountain of youth." Mom Katie Holmes falls victim to her daughter's spells as well, as the actress takes fashion advice from the "strong-willed and determined" Suri. Aside from her parents' everlasting adoration, bloggers have also taken notice of Suri's style. It's not an easy task for a four-year-old to take the world by storm, but Suri Cruise has come and conquered.

A Speedy Recovery

Veteran actor Michael Douglas is battling throat cancer. The tumor will be treated through an intensive eight-week course of chemotherapy and radiation, and doctors and Douglas himself are "very optimistic." To show your support for the star, check out the trailer for his sure-to-be-hit Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.

Love and Other Drugs

With his piercing baby blues and her pearly whites, Love and Other Drugs is sure to be a date-night hit. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, the too-cute romantic comedy has the perfect blend of sex and romance required to satisfy both sexes. Their box office stamina won't hurt either, but I, for one, can't wait to check this movie out. What do you think of it?
