Celebrity spotting can be one of the trickiest things to do. This is probably the reason why the paparazzi goes on a frenzy trying to get that ultimate million dollar photo that can make or break any of Hollywood’s glittering roster of celebrities.

It would take a trained eye to spot any of these celebrities , let alone go on a full-on stalk mode especially when they have all the incognito tricks under their sleeves .Learning the art of disguise and blending in to evade the peering eyes of the public and the scrutinizing lenses of the media, has taught many celebs  countless ways to go out and just be themselves.

The hoodie, the baseball cap and bug eye sunglasses, floppy hats and even more over the top was Michael Jackson’s mummified get up.  Can’t really blame them for their  futile attempts on disguise, as they don’t always have their best faces on.

Glossy magazine covers can be very misleading, thanks to the wonders of airbrush and photoshop.  You’d be surprised how your favourite pin up celebrity gals look sans the magic touch of a make-up artist and a hairstylist.  Make-up may just as well be  a science than  art, when you see the big difference  of a dolled up face ready for the camera lens, and your celebrity diva in sweat pants , bare faced  and in a mussed up ponytail .

Can you guess who these bare-faced women are?

Rather funny how the world of romance and relationships have changed over the years. The sexual revolution has set so many souls free and at the same time has reversed and flipped  the way we all viewed life and love for many centuries. Who says only men can have all the fun  with women half their age? Why do many frown on women getting involved with a much younger man? Who dictates that norm anyways? Let’s say a woman in her 40’s suddenly becomes single and available after a 10 year marriage ends in divorce.  They say all the good men are taken. Hence, this leaves her with slim pickins of single men in her age bracket. These men be the ones who are either too involved with work and have sworn themselves into bachelorhood, or have gone totally ape chasing around women half their age and  half their waistlines. Who then makes it to her list of eligibles?

And oh,the labels we’ve been living with  That distinguished man in his 50’s dating a girl in her 20’s is reduced to a dirty old man and a foxy woman in her 40’s dating a 20 something man becomes a raging cougar preying on fresh meat. Fortunately, Hollywood always  has something  to inspire us. This reality bite on the battle of the dating sexes has seen many celebrity cougars on the prowl for  a great catch.  Whether they end up with a keeper or just a sleeper, these Hollywood women sure have their game on and some pretty hot boy toy trophies.

Mariah Carey  — rawrrz for this mamita for keeping her boy toy Nick Canon in tow despite their 10 year age difference.

Kylie Minogue –  a breast cancer survivor, this diva from down under seems to have found her second wind and some good love with her Spanish beau Andres Velencoso  who is 11 yrs younger .

The Power of Glee

In 2009, Madonna granted Glee the rights to her entire catalogue of music, and the producers had a hunch that the Madonna tribute would be one epic episode. They were absolutely right.

In Glee’s April 20th episode, the gang performed Madonna’s greatest hits, such as “Express Yourself” and “Like A Prayer.” They also launched the album compilation, Glee: The Music—The Power of Madonna on the same day.

The album contains the seven songs that the cast performed on the show—“Express Yourself,” “Borderline/Open Your Heart” mash up, “Vogue,” “Like a Virgin,” “4 Minutes,” “What It Feels Like For a Girl,” and “Like A Prayer.” The iTunes edition even features a bonus track, “Burning Up,” which wasn’t part of the show.

It’s only been over a week since The Power of Madonna was released, and the album already hit number one on Billboard 200, beating out other contenders such as Justin Bieber.

Who do you think was the more powerful figure in selling the album—Madonna or Glee?


Get Your Madge Stunnaz On!

Photo from the D&G Preview Woman Campaign spring/summer 2010

The latest collaboration from Madonna and Dolce & Gabbana is MDG, a collection of sunglasses designed by Madonna herself.

The ads were shot by photographer Steven Klein and will run in Vogue until February 2011. Check out some stills below:

By the looks of it, the sunglasses don’t really stand out from the usual trends. There’s only so much you can do with eyewear. You’re pretty much purchasing it for the label and boasting rights. “I’m wearing Madonna’s sunglasses!”

Back to Madge. The 51-year-old sure is busy with her fashion collaborations. She and her daughter Lourdes have recently signed a deal with Iconix Brand Group Inc. to create a fashion line for teens aptly called “Material Girl.”

Would you rock Madonna stunners?


Madonna and Lourdes’ Fashion Line

They say you gotta start ‘em young. Madonna, 51, has teamed up with her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon and her partners at Iconix Brand Group Inc. to create a fashion line for teens.

Police: Madonna’s Horse Story Strange

Madonna Visits Local Village In Malawi

Madonna said she fell off a horse because a paparazzi spooked it. She is feeling better now but the police do not think that the whole truth has been disclosed in the case. They think that there is something wrong with the story. Oh well, all is well that ends well, right?


Madonna’s Adoption Declined

2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

Who would have thought? Madonna’s highly publicized attempt at adopting a 3-year-old girl from Malawi has been denied by a judge. The reason is that the judge “sided with critics who have said exceptions should not be made for the star who has set up a major development project for this impoverished, AIDS-stricken southern African country.” Madonna’s lawyers have appealed.


Madonna’s Adoption Pushing Through

Simply Madonna: Materials Of The Girl - Exhibition

Despite all the flak that Madonna has been receiving over her recent announcement about another adoption, she is pushing through with it. She said that she is following standard procedures and that there is no reason for it not to go through.


Madonna Hits Recording Studio Again

2009 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

The superstar is going back to the studio to record new tracks for her planned greatest hits album. If rumors are to be believed the album should be out by September of this year. Madonna fans are all excited, I bet.


Custody Victory For Madonna

Madonna and ex-husband Guy Ritchie attend a service at the Kabbalah Center in NYC with kids

Madonna fought to have her sons with Guy Ritchie move to the US and won. Rocco and David Banda are moving to the US to study so that they will not be separated from half sister Lourdes. Madonna is naturally ecstatic while Guy is “resigned.”


Madonna has pulled another coup. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake will reportedly perform together with her during her Sticky & Sweet Tour stop at Dodger Stadium.

Let’s see if these are just rumors or if Madonna does deliver.


Madonna, A-Rod tryst in Seinfeld Mansion

Rumors are now circulating that Madonna had a tryst with Alex Rodriguez in Jerry Seinfeld’s mansion. Apparently, the two went to Seinfeld’s residence separately and then had a private party. They then left separately.

I’m betting Madonna will announce her relationship with A-Rod in a few months.


Sex is “scheduled” with Madonna

You just know that sordid details of a marriage will come out when a divorce is heating up.

According to reports, Madonna had to pencil in sex with ex-hubby Guy Ritchie in her planner. She is reportedly so busy that everything has to have a schedule — going to the gym, going to Kabbalah meetings and boinking her husband.


Madonna, Guy Ritchie split official

What were rumors a few days ago is a reality today.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have officially announced that they have split. A rep for Madge has announced that the two will be divorcing after eight years of marriage.

Well, better luck next time guys.


Britney and Madonna reunite

Check out this exclusive series of photos of Britney Spears preparing for her concert with Madonna.

Amazing. Britney’s back, bitch!


Glamour for a good cause


Enough with the sad Hollywood tales of drug overdoses and nervous breakdowns.

Let’s look at the glamorous and fun side of the celebrity scene — and no one does glamour better than these people. Madonna (remember when we thought she was a bad girl? she looks lke Mother Teresa compared to Britney) threw a star studded benefit for UNICEF, co-sponsored by Gucci. Next to here are the power couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and Madonna’s now 11 year old daughter, Lourdes. Rosie O’Donnell’s there, too — though she won’t be touching the alcohol; she says she’s quit drinking.


Maxim names Unsexiest Stars

Sarah Jessica Parker

You can probably guess who made it to Maxim’s
List of “Sexiest Celebs” — like Charlize Theron and Jessica Alba. But guess who they slammed on their “Unsexiest” list?

 Sarah Jessica Parker was declared the “least sexiest girl in a group of very unsexy women” (guess she’s not getting sex in this city). Amy Winehouse made it to No. 2 thanks to her “hemorrhaging translucent skin, rat’s nest mane and lashes that look more like surgically attached bats.” Sandra Oh of Grey’s Anatomy was called “boyish” while Madonna and Britney (who were once thought the sexiest women of their generation) were declared either “self-righteous” or just nuts.



Watch out Israel, the material girl & her posse are heading your way!

Madonna & pals Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher & Donna Karan are fleeing the Sunset Strip for the Holy Land this week.  Madge plans on spending the Jewish holidays with her Kabbalah buddies & maybe a handful of Israeli soldiers as well. 

So, I guess there’s only one thing left to say, Shana tovah!



We may have figured out the reason Britney Spears’ MTV VMA performance was so shabby & seemingly horrible.  Apparently Brit could not take her eyes off herself, as she was watching the whole terrible ordeal live on video.

The 25-year-old star left the Video Music Award stage crying, “Oh, my God, I looked like a fat pig! I looked like a fat pig!”  Poor little dear.  I’m afraid she might actually have something there.

I think Britney just needs some good mentoring time with Madonna, don’t you?
