Great, now we’ve gotten it into heads that there needs to be a Black Flag/Black Eyed Peas supergroup. The Black Eyed Flags, obviously. Henry Rollins will sing “Big Girls Don’t Cry” while Fergie sits on stage and cries. Seriously, what the hell is she doing wearing this thing?
“Thirty-five dollars and a six-pack to my name, and also millions of more dollars and some Cristal.” More
The Billboard Awards were last night and Eminem, Rihanna and Beyonce were some of the big winners. In untraditional music biz fashion, everyone was dressed relatively simply in solid colors and demure gowns. The big accent last night was the hair — red, pink and braided.
Purple pants: they’re not just for Grimace anymore. What’s that, now? Grimace didn’t wear pants? Ew. Celebs like Cheryl Cole, Russell Brand and Fergie have been spotted out and about in bold, grape-colored trousers recently, and we’re calling “trend” — for better or worse. More
The annual Met Gala was last night, and just in time for spring, everyone dressed super floral. Jennifer Lopez, Emma Stone and Taylor Swift: all rocking the vegetation look. May flowers indeed!
So drop-crotch pants seems to be the trend that won’t die, and we’re sort of coming around on them. (Yes, we call them drop-crotch pants, not harem pants, because they makes you look like you’ve literally dropped your crotch. So clumsy!) Now that spring has sprung, we’ve been seeing the baggy-bottom look everywhere. Check out the celebs who’ve opted to go the way of fallen lady part pants. More
I think that The Black Eyed Peas are responsible for many of the most annoying songs in the world, and now someone else agrees with me – the band’s frontman Will.I.Am. In an interview, he explained that when the band was first getting big he felt obligated to play their radio hits, but now that they’re huge stars or whatever he realizes that “My Humps” isn’t his masterpiece and he resents playing it. Yeah, and I resent listening to it, dude. More
Don’t tell us you haven’t noticed the similarity too; celebrities striking faux-fierce poses in the front rows of fashion shows totally resemble wild animals stalking their pray. From Kanye West‘s leopard essence to Mary-Kate and Ashley mimicking baby polar bears — it’ a veritable safari. More
Taboo (real name: Jaime Gomez) is best known as “the guy in the Black Eyed Peas who isn’t Will.I.Am and kind of dresses like Neo from The Matrix.” So when a copy of his memoir, Fallin’ Up, landed on my desk, my immediate reaction was “Why?” But reading the book has given me some insight into who Taboo is and actually made me respect him. While his own story is interesting – he grew up Latino in East L.A., had a kid young, and met his future BEP bandmates when they were doing rap and B-boy battles – it’s, sadly, the parts of his book about other celebrities that are the most interesting.

Generally when you go out to a fancy event, you don’t want to look like a moving target. Then again, most celebrities don’t hang out with Dick Cheney, so they’re probably safe. Still, we have to wonder why so much fashion seems to be inspired by an archery board these days. More
The American Music Awards aired last night, and as promised the Backstreet Boys were back. As were superstars like Justin Bieber, Fergieand Katy Perry, who took the stage to perform for an eager nation. But, um, it just us or did everyone sound a little off? Our musician friend theorized that the guy in charge of monitoring the artists’ ear mics was screwing up, and we’re not qualified to do anything but nod, take his word for it, and get to work commenting on the crazy outfits. Speaking off: As pop’s boldest and brightest walked down the red carpet last night we couldn’t shake the feeling that were we actually watching a show in the aviary house at the Bronx Zoo. From Rihanna‘s cardinal-esque monochrome to Ke$ha‘s hoopoe-like mohawk, America’s celebs were channeling their inner bird all the way to the podium. More

So Katie Holmes has shot a series of glossy J.Crew ads with Josh Duhamel, Adam Brody and some guy named Jeremy Strong (who we feel like we should know but we don’t)! In keeping with Katie’s second coming of Jackie O image, she fits the WASP-y brand to a tee. Doi. The most surprising thing about the ads are the dudes J.Crew picked to be in it More
How unexpected: While reading a magazine over the weekend, I stumbled upon an advertisement for Jessica Simpson‘s new fragrance, called “Fancy Nights.” Unlike some other celebrity perfumes, this one smells wonderfully unique and not too sweet: It’s musky, sensual and I rubbed the advertisement – complete with a “smell me!!” insert – all over my arms. Yes, I fell in love with Jessica Simpson’s Fancy Nights; and no, this is not an advertisement! So I Googled an online review, and what I discovered blew my mind. More
Will.i.am says reports that Fergie is leaving Black Eyed Peas are greatly exaggerated. The rapper-producer tells Sirius XM Radio that he put the frontwoman on the spot this weekend, saying, “‘Hey, is it true that you’re leaving?’ She was like, … More
