I remember last season around this time, I was really not loving the show at all. I felt that the contestants weren’t strong enough, I felt the winner of each challenge were completely wrong…but I cannot even tell you how happy I am with what’s happening this season. Every week it literally just gets better and better, and this week was EXCEPTIONAL!

This weeks mini challenge was a SCANDALOUS photo shoot. You know the kind, where something pops out, or something falls off. Carmen tucked herself so it looked like she had a real vajayjay, and Stacy took out her real tit OMG it looked so funny I couldn’t even stand it! So they were chosen to lead the next two teams. On Team Stacy we had Alexis, Yara, Mariah and Shangla. On Team Carmen was Raja, Delta, Manila and India. They were each a news team. There were 2 anchors, a weather girl, gossip girl and a reporter who was to interview Kristin Cavalari.

TV Backtalk: “Skins UK” Mini’s Episode

In: Adam, TV Shows

My first article about “Skins” on the site was a denouncement of the attempt to Amercanize this iconic series by the “good” people at MTV and so far, they’ve proven me right on all threats and worries: Skins US ain’t no Skins UK. However, as this perfect series starts off it’s 5th season, I was a bit worried that the UK series itself was losing its touch. I chose to write about the newest episode- the Mini centric- as I felt it was finally a return to the classic and brilliant styling I was use to from the first 4 seasons. This season started off with a perfect choice for a leading protagonist- a young, sexually ambiguous, androgynous but curiously stunning Tilda Swinton lookalike named Frankie (real name Dakota Blue Richards). I know it sounds like I’m making this shit up, but it’s all true and a gold star choice for this show. Starting much like season 3/4, this motley crue bunch does not start off as great friends but rather as disparate, amazing characters just waiting to find each other and bond. Still, it wasn’t until this latest episode that I truly began to fall in love with this year’s bunch.

Call me a sucker for the girl with an eating disorder and a full head of gorgeous blond hair, but this 3rd episode of the season: “Mini” has been my fave thus far. Bouncing between some classic crooners like Eddie Cochran (“Nervous Breakdown”) and some great up-and-comers like Crystal Fighters (“With You”), the music was classic “Skins UK” and a perfect backdrop to this simple but beautiful episode. Basically the story of sad pretty popular girl finds she can’t handle it all- I can hear Tommy‘s eyes rolling at reading this theme in yet another one of my article’s- the show manages an old story with it’s ever-modernizing twist. Mini begins the series as a freckly mean girl who’s antagonistic ways were just begging to be explained and understood. But, unlike an episode of “Saved By The Bell”, “Skins” didn’t offer us a simple, clear-cut AHA moment of realization that this girl is just as tortured as those she preys on, rather a realistic view of a vain, self-conscious teen doing what she thinks is best for herself. Wow, an actually believable representation of today’s bitches! (Don’t worry, I didn’t mean that harshly, I’m one of them ha).

A couple of weeks ago, Tyrell gave you the first look at Jennifer Lopez’s “On The Floor” music video via MTV News. If you love the song and Jenny from the block, you’re in for a real treat today. I have a more in-depth and extended behind the scenes look which was filmed in late January. Taj Stansberry, who’s also worked with Taio Cruz, Rihanna and Ne-Yo, directed the music video.

With Lady Gaga and Britney Spears releasing highly-anticipated music videos in the coming weeks, I hope Jennifer’s doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. Early indicators dictate it should do well as the track has been well received and growing more popular by the day. Plus, she has “American Idol” as a platform to pimp out her single to millions of viewers on a weekly basis. RedOne did a smashing job creating a track that’ll give Jennifer Lopez a much-needed hit.

When filming the music video, Lopez asked the choreographer, Frank Gatson, to create dance moves that would inspire viewers to imitate and copy. In other words, she wanted her very own “Single Ladies” phenomenon. Does she succeed? I’ll reserve full judgment til the final product, but it looks like you’ll need lots of room to work your arms out.

“[We're trying to create a vibe] that’s so amazing. [It's like] everybody had some watermelon and the watermelon made them high, it gave them a little buzz — but a good buzz, a real magical buzz, a dance buzz, a buzz that makes you feel like fried chicken, so she just wants everybody to have a good old time…. The club must have this vibe, where you get on the floor and everybody’s bringing it,” he added. “We’ve seen so many club videos, but we want to see a club video with a vibe unique to Jennifer Lopez.” – Jennifer Lopez

I recently had the chance to chat with Tabatha Coffey of Bravo‘s “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” about the third season of her show, her new book, and her life. I’m a huge fan of her show, where she helps hair salon owners in need by simply “taking over” and whipping them into shape. Whether it’s their skill level, salon decor, professionalism, customer service, finances, or all of the above, Tabatha applies her no B.S. approach to business and gives these salon owners and staff new found confidence to make their business succeed. I’m not the only one who can’t get enough of this show. Tabatha was also recently nominated for a NewNowNext award for “Most Addictive Reality Star,” which I’m completely not surprised about.

Tabatha inspires people (including myself with respect to Homorazzi and Masc ) to be tough on themselves as well as on the people around them, so they can be as successful as they dream to be. She’s had so many people ask her questions about her life, like how she came out of the closet, and also people telling her how she’s helped change their lives for the better. It’s this type of interaction with fans that prompted her to write her book called “It’s Really Not About The Hair: The Honest Truth About Life, Love, and the Business of Beauty.” In the book, she talks about her own personal experiences that have shape her into the person she is today. She’s reclaimed the world “bitch,” and has transformed it into the person is: Brave, Intelligent, Tenacious, Creative, and Honest.

Get to know Tabatha a little better by checking out my interview with her below, and definitely get a copy of her book, which you can find on Amazon here.

New Releases Out This Week: February 14th

In: Charge It, Movies, Music, Tyrell

Despite it being Valentine’s Day, the gifts for you sweetie in the New Releases department are a little sparse in terms of mainstream media. However, I will showcase a few of them in order for you to maybe discover a new artist or movie.

This week’s feature release is the action/drama film Unstoppable starring Chris Pine and Denzel Washington.

A runaway train, transporting deadly, toxic chemicals, is barreling down on Scranton, Pennsylvania, and only two men can stop it: a veteran engineer and a young conductor. Thousands of lives hang in the balance as these ordinary heroes attempt to chase down one million tons of hurtling steel and prevent an epic disaster.

Lady Antebellum and Arcade Fire were the big winners on last night’s Grammy Awards. The show kinda dragged in the middle, but started off great with that wicked Aretha Franklin tribute. Didn’t Jennifer Hudson and Florence Welch impress during their sets. Who knew Flo had so much soul? Not me. Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Norah Jones and Ce-Loo also impressed with their respective performances. Be sure to check out Tyrell’s rundown of the Grammy show and performances if you missed the show.

But enough about the show, let’s start dishing on what the musicians wore on the red carpet. Ever since Jennifer Lopez showed up in that infamous green Versace dress in 2000, celebs have been using the event to make a big fashion splash. The biggest trend on the red carpet this year was definitely metallics. Whether it was crystals, mirrors, sequins or other shiny fabrications, the brighter the better. So instead of picking my usual Top 10 best and 5 worst dressed, I decided to highlight all the glittery dresses that caught my eye along with three non-shiny outfits that impressed. Don’t worry, my picks for the worst fashion violations can be found after glitterati gowns. Check out my choices for both lists below.

Special Botox Party At WEIGHTS

In: Charge It, Tommy D

You heard me right. Our very good friends at WEIGHTS are having a very special Botox Party this weekend. Now while I won’t be attending (I’m still too young), I want to give everyone else all the details about it so if you feel you need/want to you should go down and see them! They’ve also got a lot of new facial treatments in which are working wonder for a lot of people. Along with their incredible training packages (yes I’m still there!), this is truly your one stop shop! Here is all the info you need:

Botox is a treatment that reduces wrinkles through relaxing the facial muscles. While Botox uses injections to temporarily relax facial muscles, reducing wrinkles, a Radio Frequency facelift treatment triggers the skin’s own mechanisms to naturally reset the age of your skin itself, allowing you to immediately look fresher, and even years younger with no downtime and continued improvement as weeks and months go by. A Radio Frequency facelift treatment is the ideal way to turn back the hands of time naturally, and it lasts for years instead of months. Weights has had such good results that we are offering a doctor-administered Botox service if you want to do some comparisons yourself. Together, the results can be stunning!
