The Coolest Dudes in the World

There are some characters that seem to have it all; good looks, great style, amazing partner and a whopper of a career. We all would like to hate them but there’s the other thing – they are great guys!

There is no denying that Al Pacino is one cool dude. His films have stood the test of time. Who can forget his incredible portrayal of Tony Montana, the petty Cuban criminal who made it big in Scarface. The infamous bespoke white suit is synonymous with the character, all thanks to Pacino’s ability to transform himself into the character that he is playing. Read the rest of this entry »

Here’s a quick rundown of the top 10 most influential celebrities in entertainment at the moment:

Simon Cowell

Back then, the genre was seen as an outlet for the lower income groups and minorities to express themselves. Today, however, this genre has grown by leaps and bounds and its influence can be seen not only in the music industry but in fashion, games and has spurned a few reality television shows.

People admire them and many of us would like to be them, the successful hip hop artists of today rake in millions in record sales, clothing and fragrance lines. These artists are very successful in business as well – here is a list of some of the richest hip hop artists of our time:

Party For A Cause

Who says you can’t raise funds for Haiti while hitting the clubs? Last week Hollywood celebs and their friends clinked glasses and danced the night away at The Eldridge in New York City for a Haiti benefit party.

Hosted by Matt Levine, Solange Knowles, and Kevin Barnes, the party’s proceeds went straight to Yele, singer Wyclef Jean’s charity organization for Haiti earthquake victims. Guests included Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles, who did a semi-reunion of Destiny’s Child when she sang with Michelle Williams. Solange played DJ the whole night, as she spun Michael Jackson and Prince tracks.

Check out the party photos here.


Miley On Jay-Z

Jay-Z To Kanye’s Rescue

Everyone and his mom has been hounding Kanye on his stupid move at the VMA – even President Obama! Rapper Jay-Z seems to be the only person to stand up for Kanye. He says that Kanye is just really passionate and that he doesn’t deserve all this flak. He also says that while it was rude what he did, he didn’t kill anybody.

Easy for you to say, pal, you weren’t the one being dissed. PLUS, perhaps it didn’t hurt that it was his girl that Kanye was rooting for!


Why would anyone want to be called Lil Mama? Anyway, Lil Mama is her name and she did a little Kanye at the VMA. Poor little girl, no one even really noticed – at least no one talked about it except for TMZ, who must have been feeling sorry for her.

You might not have noticed, but Lil Mama jumped onto the stage at the end of the performance of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. It’s sad that she dared do something like that. It’s sadder that no one noticed.


Beyonce and Jay-Z get married!


Beyonce and Jay-Z quietly tied the knot on Friday. A source said the ceremony was a “really private affair” with just friends and family, followed by a party in Jay-Z’s apartment. Celeb guests included Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and Gwyneth Paltrow.DJ Cassidy handled the music, while Amy’s Orchids imported 50,000 to 60,000 white orchid blooms for the decor.

Though talk of the upcoming wedding began when news leaked that the couple got a wedding license, some say that it’s an elaborate April Fool’s joke.


Beyonce and Jay-Z get marriage license


Beyoncé and Jay-Z put all rumors of a breakup to rest by getting their marriage license at the Scarsdale Village Hall. “It was just the two of them,” said one eyewitness, “They were very polite and smiling as they filled out the paperwork. They were holding hands for a while. They looked really happy.”

The two have been dating since 2002, but the relationship has had its ups and downs. While Beyonce once said that she “couldn’t picture herself as a bride” she did admit that she began daydreaming about her own wedding after her sister got married in 2005. She later said,
“Maybe me and my man will go away to an island; maybe we’ll go to a church. I have no idea.”
