Two of the dance floors hottest artists have teamed up to bring you a pulse pounding, ground shaking song to kick start your summer. With the raging beats of Swedish House Mafia and the smooth vocal stylings Taio Cruz, this song is sure to tear up all the clubs this weekend.

The song is a nice change from the two biggest tracks from Swedish House Mafia last year, The One and Miami 2 Ibiza which I felt sounded very similar. This track sounds really fresh and the hook is easy on the ears. The lyrics in the verse are pretty original as well with lines like “I’ll pretend that you’re my dinner, you can be my salt shaker.”

I love a good Taio Cruz vocal and I think that his voice really compliments the Swedish House Mafia sound. This song is going to be an instant hit this summer. I don’t know if it’ll have the same impact that Dynamite and Higher had, but its going to come close.

Oprah’s Ad Rates For Final Show

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The Oprah Winfrey Show is coming to a close in just a few weeks and gearing up for it’s final episode. Despite being a daytime show, the ad rates for the finale are in the primetime arena. According to Horizon Media, the asking price for a 30-second spot on Oprah’s May 25th final show is $1 million dollars. YOWZA. As if Oprah didn’t already make enough moolah.

To put things into perspective, last year’s finales for “Lost” and “24” raked in $900,000 and $650,000 per 30-second spot respectively. Even though, Oprah’s audience is roughly 7 million viewers smaller than both those dramas, many predict all the ad slots will sell out. Many advertisers want to be associated with Oprah’s brand despite the astronomical ad rate.

The sexy Jordana Brewster, starring in Fast Five, is introducing her new fragrance in this new Funny or Die video. “Hot Dog Water. For when you want to be treated as a professional and smell like a hot dog.”

I have to say, this video is bang on for what these celebrity endorsed fragrance commercials are like. Watch how the world around her changes when she splashes on a little hot dog water for a night on the town. All this time, people have been throwing their hot dog water down the drain. Not Jordana, she knows a money making opportunity when she sees one. All kidding aside, the bottled hot dog water with chunks of hot dog makes me want to gag. The video is worth watching though – check it out!

Who’d You Rather: Lachey VS Timmons

In: Music, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

For this week’s Who’d You Rather, I thought I’d turn the temperature all the way up to 98 Degrees and throw down a battle between two of its hottest members… front man Nick Lachey and co-hottie Jeff Timmons. I first remember 98 Degrees for their hotness in their music video for The Hardest Thing. With them being all shirtless and sweaty, I’m sure the song wasn’t the only “hardest thing”.

Nick Lachey was a pivotal player in 98 Degrees’ success. His smooth vocal stylings on the lead vocals made their sound current and pop enough for the times but still made them fresh. Nick was able to make all the girls (and the girly boys) swoon when he looked into the camera with his dusty blue eyes. I’m sure that is one thing that soon to be wife, Vanessa Mannillo loves about him too (besides his hot body).

Jeff Timmons was personally always my favorite. He had the whispery voice and that cutest face out of all of them. PLUS his body was so muscular and to die for. As a young boy confused about his sexuality in high school, the posters of him shirtless that showed up in J-14 Magazine were also snuck into my bedroom. Once the band split up he tried to go solo but couldn’t seem to the catch the wave of success.

Last night, the stars and their pros faced the challenge of tackling either the Viennese Waltz, classic Waltz or the Paso Doble. But there was a catch. The regular band had been transformed into a full piece orchestra to accompany the routines and all of the music was classical pieces. The band would be featured for 20 seconds of the song and then the couples would begin their routine.

This posed as a challenge for a few couples as the song seemed to overpower them, but a few rose to the occasion and really triumphed with their pieces. Ralph Macchio’s beautiful Waltz captivated the audience and Carrie Ann. Another piece even though it was controversial was one of my favorites of the night and that was Chelsea and Mark’s Viennese Waltz inspired by the film Harry Potter.

The leader board found Chelsea and Mark at the top and found Kendra and Louis way down at the bottom. So who will go home? Tonight, we were treated to performances by rock violinist David Garrett and amazing vocalist Jennifer Hudson.

Book Review: Beatrice and Virgil

In: Dan, Random Reads

Let me start this book review by saying, Yann Martel’s novels are not for everyone. If there is one book on the planet that I continue to refer to as my favourite book and pastime, it’s Martel’s Life of Pi. I read that particular novel for the first time when I was twenty-one and have re-read it every year since then. There is something about his way of constructing sentences and arranging words that pulls me in and forces me to continue to turn the pages of his novels.

His latest work, Beatrice and Virgil, was definitely another experience with literature that I wasn’t expecting. The concept of this novel was originally lost on me as I broke open the book and made my way through the first few pages. Eventually, over time I found myself intrigued by the story that focused on a successful writer, Henry, and his relationship with an aging taxidermist and his vast collection of animals. The descriptions of the city and street dwelling of the taxidermy as well as the inner sanctums of the animal exhibits and work shop were perfect down to every last detail and I truly found myself swept up in my imagination.

Nicki Officially Joins Britney On Summer Tour

In: Music, Tyrell

Fans rejoice, your wish has come true. Nicki Minaj has officially signed on the dotted line to join Miss Britney Spears on her official summer tour replacing the commitaphobe Enrique Iglesias. A while back, it seemed like a few artists were vying for the spot but the Young Money star will reign supreme as the opening act. This is huge for Britney and bring her to a whole other level in my opinion. This has now officially become a power house tour.

Two other acts joining the Femme Fatale will be Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo. (I have never heard of either of the groups so I’ll provide some video for them after the jump to educate us all.) The tour kicks of on June 16th in Sacramento, CA. Here is what Brit revealed about the upcoming tour.

“This is the Femme Fatale tour and I’m thrilled to have the hot Nicki Minaj join me and Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo will get everyone on the dance floor. Can’t wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road.”

Check out Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo here.

This past Sunday night, Tyrell and I covered the star studded red carpet (or in this case blue carpet) of The 22nd Annual GLAAD Awards in Los Angeles, before enjoying the award ceremony and kicking back with Donovan, Brian and Alex at the Celebrity After Party at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. So many stars were out to support such a great cause, that holds the media accountable and gives LGBT people the support and aid they may need when they would otherwise have no one else to turn to.

We had the chance to chat with the stars of some of the hottest (and funniest) shows on television, including Ariel Winter from Modern Family, Craig Robinson from The Office, Mike O’Malley and Kristin Chenoweth from Glee, and Retta & Jim O’Neil from Parks & Recreation.

Aside from the sitcoms, we also had the chance to chat with some of our favorite reality stars, including celeb photographer Mike Ruiz from The A-List: New York, Lisa Vanderpump from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott, Jai Rodriguez, The Fabulous Beekman Boys, some of the stars from RuPaul’s Drag Race, Project Runway, and many more. I also got to chat with Meatloaf and Marlee Matlin from the current Celebrity Apprentice! Did you know that in a recent episode, Matlin raised $1 million dollars for her charity, the most in the show’s history. Love her!
