I’m so excited and it’s not just because we have next week’s photos already. Photographer Francesco Carrozzini from Cycle 15 is back this week to work with the girls. Lucky beyotches. The Italian hottie will be directing the girls for their Mad Men retro-inspired commercials this week. Once again, the girls will be working in pairs. You can already taste the drama unfolding on your lips. Will Molly get her heinous weave fixed? Will Alexandria continue her reign of terror? Will Sara work out her new look?

Also in this episode, Miss Jay returns to give some runway tips. Dressed up in a yellow turban (LOL), he informs the girls about a fiery runway challenge which shocks the models. Silly girls. At this point, you know something crazy is always in store to test out their catwalk skills. If it’s not huge plastic spheres, swinging pendulums or a reverse conveyor belt, it wouldn’t be an ANTM challenge.

Going into this season, I didn’t think I was going to like it as much, but I’m pleasantly surprised. There are actually a few girls that could be working models. For once, it’s not super clear on who’s making it to the overseas trip. I’m really loving Mikaela, Molly, Jaclyn, Monique and Brittani. If they don’t make it, I’ll be pissed. Check out this week’s preview pics below.

Michael Jackson “Hollywood Tonight” Music Video

In: Music, Patrick

The song “Hollywood Tonight” is one of the better tracks on MJ’s latest (and last?) album. The accompanying video, directed by Wayne Isham, has just been released. The storyline is very “Burlesque” or any other Hollywood dream type movie for that matter, as it follows a young woman (Sofia Boutella) to Hollywood where she strives to make her dreams come true.

She arrives in Hollywood, stars auditioning but doesn’t get the part. She struggles working as a waitress, and low and behold she eventually gets a big part and becomes paparazzi worthy. She takes a stroll, moonwalking across the crosswalk, and finds herself walking down the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She pays a visit to MJ’s star, and breaks out into Jackson inspired dance moves outside Pantages Theatre while in her Jackson inspired outfit. She is an amazing dancer! I’m sure it wasn’t a stretch to play someone living her dream, when she landing this role of a lifetime as the sole lead in Michael Jackson’s music video.

The Wanted Stay “Gold Forever”

In: Music, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

Who are Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes? They are the 5 hotties that make up the London based boy band The Wanted. Calan introduced them to us in October and I’m addicted. Last summer, the group released their first single All Time Low which hit #1 on the UK Singles Chart. Their self-titled album was released in October in hit #3 in the UK as well.

In November, the group signed with American label Island Def Jam to release an album in the US this year. Their newest single Gold Forever released through their new label is due for release March 13th but the video for the track is out now. Its so cute as the boys walk their way through a party, putting clown noses on and acting a fool. You can’t help but fall in love with these boys.

So who’s the gay one? Its tough to tell. There is some bromance love going on a couple times in the video. If any of you have some insight, let me know. But in the meantime, I found some photos from singer Max George’s photo shoot with AXM for their Naked Issue in 2008. So HOT!

Leaked Trailer For Quarantine 2: Terminal

In: Movies, Patrick

If you liked the first one, although it’s direct to disc, the second one looks just as good. A leaked movie trailer for “Quarantine 2: Terminal” has leaked online. In the first movie, the Center for Disease Control quarantined a Los Angeles apartment building after a virus turned the residents into rabid killers. This sequel takes place later that night at LAX, as passengers board a flight to Nashville. They have to make an emergency landing at a large metropolitan airport, and passengers are soon informed that they are under quarantine and cannot leave. They must band together to survive.

Mercedes Masohn and Josh Cooke are the leads in the film, playing a stewardess and a kindergarten teacher. The leaked trailer will likely be taken down soon, so check it out below while you can!

Man Crush: Scott Eastwood

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

Go ahead, make my day. I’m sure you can tell by his last name, who his famous dad is. It’s none other than Clint Eastwood. Don’t worry, Clint’s Hollywood clout had no bearing in selecting Scott Eastwood as my weekly Man Crush. Scotty made it all on his own merit because he’s so damn fine. Remember his name, you’ll be hearing a lot of it, in the coming months and years.

Born Scott Clinton Reeves, the 24-year-old hunk didn’t change his last name to Eastwood until he became an actor. Coincidentally enough, his first acting gig was courtesy of his famous dad in his film, “Flags of our Fathers”. Scott was born in Carmel, California in 1986, where his Clint began his first term as mayor (86-88).

Since he was the result of an affair between his flight attendant mother and Clint, his birth certificate didn’t list anyone as his father. It wasn’t until the mid-1990s when the National Enquirer broke the story of his paternity that it was public knowledge. Since then, Scott has grown close to his dad and often appear in his films, “Gran Torino“, “Invictus” and the aforementioned “Flags of our Fathers“. Prior to dabbling in acting, he did a bit of modeling and even appeared in an Abercrombie & Fitch ad.

Typically, I like to pick non super famous hotties for my weekly crushes, but that could all change this year. According to IMDB.com, Scott has five films completed and in post-production. 2011 could prove to be his breakout year. Next week, I promise to select a Man Crush that is more well known and popular, but in the meantime get ready to gawk at Scott’s hotness and you can proudly say to your friends you knew him when.

Winslet Goes “Titanic” For Lancome Ad

In: Charge It, Tyrell, Videos

Kate Winslet went a little Titanic recently. No, I don’t mean that her career hit an iceberg and sunk like a ship. Remember when a younger Kate posed nude on a couch to be drawn by “Jack”? Well, Kate pulled out all her old tricks and posed nude in an ad for the new Lancôme lipstick collection, L’Absolu Nu.

Lying in a white and cream colored room, Kate lies on the floor, talking on the phone draped in a satin sheet. (And might I add, she looks INCREDIBLE). She seductively applies her lipstick and looks right at you with her piercing blue eyes. After a shot of the lipstick on the table, we cut to Kate, lying naked on the floor, looking absolutely flawless. This 35 year old has got it going on.

American Idol 10: Top 13 Performances

In: Donovan, TV Shows

I may sound like a broken record here, but I’m loving this season of “American Idol“. Everything is so on point this season. There were some amazing performances by a couple of the contestants, some expected and some a surprise. Meanwhile, a couple of frontrunners, kinda crashed and choked, opening the door to a potential shocking elimination. It was a great mix of the good, the bad, and the oooooh, that’s embarrassing.

After a week practice, the new judges worked out the jitters of critiquing in front of a live performance and gave some solid and memorable feedback. PS. Congrats to Jennifer Lopez for having the No. 1 single on iTunes. Her musical comeback is official.

Normally, the contestants’ packages bore me to death, but not last night. I’m loving the behind the scenes look of the singers with Jimmy Iovine’s producing heavy hitters. Seriously, all of them are hardcore and produced some of the biggest hits the past few years. These Idols are so lucky to work with them. This week’s theme of their “Personal Idol” was a bit loosey goosey, but it allowed the singers to stay within their respective comfort zones. See who nailed it and who put a nail in their coffin in my commentary below. Scroll down to bottom to see my rankings and who I predict will be in the bottom three.

Stage Review: Quidam

In: Nic, The Arts

Cirque du Soleil came back to Vancouver tonight with their presentation of Quidam, and hit a home run for a packed house in GM Place. Don’t. Miss. This. Show.

In classic Cirque du Soleil form, the presence on stage was haunted with Old World atmosphere, and presented on a New World scale. Part of the beauty of their productions are that they suck you into a world, not quite existing in this decade. The story of a young girl named Zoe is at the center:

Young Zoé is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world—the world of Quidam — where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.

As the story progresses, you see Zoe’s Mom and Dad, absent, unaware, and uninvolved with their daughter, observing the fantastical performances and their mind’s opening up to her imagination.

Right from the start, audience participation was key, a real plus when watching such an intricate and heightened production. A couple of actors came down to the audience to say hello, giving everyone enough time to find their seats, and helping bring us into the Quidam world. The beauty throughout the entire show was that we weren’t the only ones watching the performances on stage. This world, inside Zoe’s head, had many characters, some of which would sit on stage and watch the amazing acrobatics and skill and react to them with us.
