Today, DJ Bearded James unleashes Volume 2; be sure to listen for the Paula Deen Apology remix at the end. Did we miss your favorite food-related tune? Let us know in the com ... More >>
As both Jessica Simpson and the Bard can attest, music is indeed the food of love. We, however, would much rather focus on the music of food. There's no lack of songs on the subject, so under two "foodonyms" (DJ Escoffier and DJ Bearded James) we've compiled a duo of mixes intended to get your stoma ... More >>
No, not just the Olsen twins. How about...
The 1962 Granny Guignol classic Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? is being remade by Walter Hill, and it's time to line up two stars who are over the hill to play the parts. You know the drill. Jane is a nutjob who's stuck in her cutesy-pie kiddie routine and is so adorable except that she viciously ... More >>
Rebecca & Fiona Lavo Thursday, June 21 Better than: The Avicii show at Lavo in January. I'd been watching Swedish DJ duo Rebecca & Fiona play their wrung-out superclub gruel for about an hour and a half at the upscale midtown joint Lavo when a woman tapped my shoulder. I recognized her. She worke ... More >>
I was a guest on last night's Issues With Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN, discussing Samantha Brick, the woman who wrote an editorial about how being so beautiful and alluring has ruined her friendships with bitterly jealous and resentful female friends. I should have such problems.

See if you can find Britney, Christina, Justin, and Ryan (and guest star Jodie Sweetin from Full House) in this amazingly prescient shot from The Mickey Mouse Club. The photo pops up in Jodie's memoir UnSweetined, the one about her battle with meth, booze, speed, and the Olsen twins.
Rappers loved Amy Winehouse. The British warbler might not have collaborated with rap chaps to the extent that Mary J Blige has, but when she passed away earlier this year she did so leaving behind a discernible trail of hip-hop goodies. And the songs suggest there was a genuine bond and shar ... More >>
Contenders are piling up in the theaters-here are the ones to watch
Twenty-one-year-old Elizabeth Olsen -- younger sister to those eternally cute little monkeys the Olsen twins -- started getting Oscar buzz a while ago, as my eyeballs rolled like pinballs. What next -- a Nobel Prize for Jaleel White's cousin?
Nicki Minaj performs at Yves Saint Laurent tonight. Let's be honest: Shopping isn't really the main attraction of Fashion's Night Out. Who has time to sift through sales racks when there are so many parties to go to? Some eventsDrake's DJ set at Versace, Neon Indian's invite-only gig a ... More >>

Kanye West Museum of Modern Art Tuesday, May 10 Better than: The obscenely long line outside. (There may still be people waiting to get in.) Even if you're put off by the tortured, why-so-serious vibe underpinning Kanye West's performances these days, it's hard to deny the charisma of the p ... More >>
Yes In My Backyard is a semiweekly column showcasing MP3s from new and emerging local talent. Brooklyn bubblegum-bashers Pregnant may roll deep to the ickiest, grimiest pigfuckiest loft parties in Brooklyn, but their music is sticky-sweet sugar-pop euphoria. Think Hüsker Dü, think Jawbreak ... More >>

Dont be fashion road-kill this year
via New York Daily NewsThough the Daily News promises us killer raccoons on their cover today (or at least 'killer' raccoons), it turns out they're only kinda-sorta-maybe rabid, and sick. Yawn. But the team makes up for that by digging in deep and locating a faux-redhead in our very own city ... More >>

The 2009 Tribeca Film Festival just announced its juries, and although they've included almost everyone you've ever heard of (Andre Leon Talley! Mary-Kate Olsen! Rachel Maddow!) from every corner of the entertainment industry (daytime television WHAT UP!), founder Robert De Niro has made a possibly ... More >>
While Mary-Kate Olsen's denial she had anything to do with Heath Ledger's OD death takes up the majority of front-page real estate in both tabloids this morning, there's one bizarre story that deserves to be highlighted. It's a humorous look at anti-terror security measures (well, as humorous as any ... More >>
Thank you Mary-Kate and Ashley! The press tent at Bonnaroo is a valuable source of information for unconfirmed celebrity gossip, among other things. Here's the latest juicy tidbit.

It's nice to know that we are not the only freaks thinking about/worshiping the Olsen twins this week.
