Fame by Lady Gaga

Initially, Lady Gaga’s perfume was said to be inspired by the smell of blood and semen. The controversial singer later said Fame would smell like an “expensive hooker”.

When it comes to entertainment and celebrities, at any one time there is almost always a pool of super influential people that seem to be either pulling all the strings or covering all of the magazines. Here’s a quick rundown of the top 10 most influential celebrities in entertainment at the moment:

Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell’s celebrity status and entertainment industry influence may have started relatively small in the UK, but he’s definitely spread his wings of late. The TV producer, entrepreneur and showbiz judge was the brainchild behind talent show The X Factor, which has now gone stateside in a massive way. As one of the main judges on the show he’s got the power to make people’s careers. Read the rest of this entry »

Telephone: Too Hot To Handle?

Ever since Lady Gaga released her official “Telephone” video on March 11, it’s become a favorite topic online. The nine-minute video just has too many things going on at the same time—just like Gaga’s wardrobe. Here are the trending topics:

1. It has a whopping number of product placements. And yes, people have nothing better to do than to actually count them. According to Advertising Age, there are at least nine different brands appearing in the video. But despite the cornucopia of products, only a handful of brands paid for placements, Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter told Advertising Age. Among them are Miracle Whip and Virgin Mobile. The rest were simply given free airtime as thanks for a good partnership with Lady Gaga’s previous shows and projects.

2. The Youtube video has gained over 14,000,000 hits since it came out last week. Enough said.

3. Sexiness is all over the place—from the bra-flashing guards to the sexy jailbirds dressed in bondage attire.

4. Violence is all over the place—from fighting inmates to a poisoning spree.

5. Lady Gaga addresses the hermaphrodite issue. In one scene, the busty lady guards strip an already braless Gaga down to her bare essentials. One of them quips, “I told you she didn’t have a d—k.”

6. Gaga makes out with a girl—but then again, everybody does that these days.

7. Beyoncé is in it, and she was very, very naughty. Although I believe Lady Gaga could’ve done her magic on her own, Beyoncé’s role was interesting. She played the ruthless Honey B, who bailed Gaga out of jail so that they could go on a sexy, killing rampage.

8. Quentin Tarantino lent his bright yellow Chevrolet Silverado SS—a.k.a. The Pussy Wagon, the truck that the bride drives in Kill Bill: Volume 1. Beyoncé and Lady Gaga look much better driving that truck.

9. It has a lot of PG lines, such as the part where Beyonce’s ruthless character tells the guy she killed: “I knew you’d take all of my honey, you selfish motherf*****.”

10. The end of the video flashes “to be continued,” which means we’ll definitely see more of Jonas Akerlund’s creative Gaga genius.

11. MTV banned the video. Yes, sir, the famous music video network found the mini movie-cum-music video too provocative and controversial. I wonder if it has anything to do with Lady Gaga’s team choosing E! as the official channel where they premiered the video. According to reports, other music channels may also ban the video from being aired. Who cares? We still have Youtube.

If you haven’t seen the video yet, spare nine and a half minutes of your life watching below. You won’t regret it.

One fan said it best: “Anyone who’s ever seen her live can testify she is nothing like Britney Spears or Madonna. [Lady Gaga] really is everything.”

Beyonce Goes Gaga For Telephone

Two of the music industry’s hottest booties are back for their second collaboration. After the success of Beyonce and Lady Gaga’s “Videophone,” the girls are back for more music- and video-making. This time they’ve got their eyes on another gadget—the telephone.

According to NY Mag, the new music video, “Telephone,” could be a continuation of Lady Gaga’s hit “Paparazzi,” where she poisons her lover. In “Telephone,” Lady Gaga’s character is sent to prison, but soon gets rescued by the bombshell played by none other than Beyonce.

As you wait for the video to wrap up, check out official behind-the-scenes photos here.

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.

In just three hours, 10,000 people grabbed the free passes to the 2009 MTV European Music Awards in Berlin, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. How ironic that the organizers mounted a 12-foot wall at the venue to keep those without tickets from watching the show.

That didn’t stop the musical guests from giving earth-shaking performances. Beyonce Knowles not only bagged the best female artist award and best song award for “Halo,” but also wowed the audience with her racy red outfit as she performed her hit “Sweet Dreams.”

Wall-to-wall would be an understatement for Katy Perry’s costume changes and hosting skills. From her various red carpet frocks to her glittering stage costumes, Perry’s wardrobe did not disappoint fans that night.

Beyonce Set To Conquer Malaysia

Despite lots of protests, Beyonce is going to Malaysia to perform. Two years ago, she had to cancel a gig due to the concerns of the conservatives about her sexy get ups during concerts. This time around, nothing’s gonna stop her. We’re behind you!


The guy must be coming to his senses. After he apologized in his blog, he published another post on Monday where he wrote:

“I feel like Ben Stiller in Meet the Parents when he messed up everything and Robert De Niro asked him to leave… That was Taylor’s moment and I had no right in any way to take it from her. I am truly sorry.”

Yeah, I felt sorry for Gaylord Focker – he was only trying to impress his future in-laws. But what was Kanye trying to do that night, impress Beyonce?

Country hottie Taylor Swift has come into her own, as attested to by her win at this year’s VMA. Unfortunately, Kanye West decided to be the rude person that he tends to be and interrupted her in the middle of her speech. He said:

“Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’m [going to] let you finish — but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.”

Needless to say, everyone took Taylor’s side and Kanye got thrown out. Why does he do these things???


It’s probably not what you’re thinking. McAfee Inc., known for its virus scanner, conducted a survey about celebrities which will most likely get you malware over the Internet if you do a search on them. At the top of the list, we have Jessica Biel, who is followed closely by Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Brady and Jessica Simpson. You can safely search for the First Couple, though.
