The theme of this year’s Met Costume Institute Gala—i.e., the Oscars of the East—was “the Model as Muse,” and the weedlike mannequins floating up the red carpet in weapons-grade shoes and teensy get-ups appeared only moderately more human than the “superheroes” that inspired last year’s ball.
Molly Sims called her elaborate gold Dolce & Read More
We’re not exactly sure when it happened, but sometime during the last four months, Chuck became our favorite show on television. Maybe it’s because of the brilliant cast, which seems to have chemistry on top of their chemistry; or perhaps it’s the fact that we find it impossible to watch Chuck without Read More
Given that Saturday Night Live will celebrate its 35th anniversary later this year, we doubt Lorne Michaels needs any advice from us about how to run a successful show. However, after watching this weekend’s mostly harmless episode hosted by the charming Dwayne Johnson—note to studios: put him in a musical comedy co-starring Anne Hathaway Read More
We’ve never quite understood the vitriol that comes with the name Jimmy Fallon. Maybe the problem stems from the fact that he’s really a tweener; like a lyric from a lost Britney Spears song, he’s not an actor, not yet a comedian. In fact, if he’s guilty of one thing, it’s that he just Read More

Last night, Ms. Spears appeared onstage at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles with Madonna, walking out in a fitted tuxedo shirt and a pair of not unreasonable, shiny wide-leg trousers to sing the last verse of "Human Read More
One of the more salacious post-election stories released about Sarah Palin involves her greeting Mark Salter and Steve Schmidt wearing only a towel. [US Weekly]
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake will appear onstage with Madonna tonight in a performance so awesome that they will surely get back together. [US Read More
If we’re lucky, R&B is in a state of flux; if we’re not, it’s dying slowly. Since the 90′s, the genre (especially its male component) has rewarded banality, whether in the form of sexist histrionics dressed up as seduction, the sort of stuff that gets Chris Brown and Akon hits, or the too-often bloodless smoothness Read More
Tuesday evening, for VH-1 and Vogue‘s "Fashion Rocks" show, the Black Eyed Peas performed a hip-hop version of the Rolling Stones’ "Miss You."
