No wonder she’s not signing anymore. Apparently Jessica Simpson‘s clothing line is “Irresistible”! Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) has reported that the Jessica Simpson Collection will most likely become the first ever celebrity fashion line to earn more than a billion dollars in retail sales. This year alone, it has already brought in $750 million in retail sales! Holy crap! Her estimated net worth is $100 million right now. She’s come a long way since her “Chicken of the Sea” comment.

Vince Camuto, the founder and CEO of Camuto Group (the brand’s master licensee) said to WWD, “She is the girl next door and has great product that surrounds her. People like her. People look at her as a style icon.”

Norwegian Recycling aka Peter Bull is back with another awesome video mashup. His latest masterpiece uses Cee Lo Green’s “F*ck You” instrumental as the foundations for the mix. Using snippets from 11 other pop-songs, he constructs a brand new song stitching the lyrics of the songs used.

Like his previous mashups we’ve covered on the site, this one doesn’t disappoint. I appreciate that he incorporates new songs still charting along with older popular tracks from previous years. No matter how many times I see video mashups, I still marvel at the time and patience needed to create one. If it were me, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Check out the 12 songs he used for his latest creation.

1. Cee Lo Green – Fuck You
2. Jay Sean feat. Sean Paul & Lil Jon – Do You Remember
3. Jay Sean feat. Nicki Minaj – 2012 (It Ain’t The End)
4. Kylie Minouge – Get Outta My Face
5. Britney Spears – Piece Of Me
6. Katy Perry – Teenage Dream
7. Lady Gaga – Bad Romance
8. David Guetta feat. Akon – Sexy Bitch
9. Sean Kingston – Beautiful Girls
10. Kelly Rowland feat David Guetta – Commander
11. Gwen Stefani feat. Akon – The Sweet Escape
12. Flo Rida feat. David Guetta – Club Can’t Handle Me

Model Behavior: Caleb Halstead

In: Donovan, Fashion

Say howdy to this week’s featured model, Caleb Halstead. He’s the latest genetically-gifted living mannequin for my “Model Behavior” series. Born in Iowa in 1988, the 6’0″ blue-eyed stunner was a gifted athlete during his high school years at Washington High School, before flashing his pearly whites for fashion photographers.

IMG Models discovered Halstead when he was just 19-years-old. The Polaroids they took were sent to well-known photographers who were impressed with his bone structure. Some of the notable names he’s worked with include Steven Klein, Jeremy Kost, Greg Vaughan and Bruce Weber. The latter is well known for launching fresh young talent.

He’s done print ads (American Apparel & Abercrombie & Fitch) and walked in numerous international fashion runways (Neil Barrett). You can often see his images in publications like “Hero Magazine”, “U Magazine”, “Geil Magazine” and “Arena Homme” to name just a few. Currently he is represented by Wilhelmina in New York, Nous in Los Angeles, Success in Paris and Uno in Barcelona. Check out a few of his images below.

On Sunday, I reported Alicia Keys’ “Keep A Child Alive” campaign had gotten off to a slow start. Since its World Aids Day launch, the charity had only reached $233,531. A far cry from its $1,000,000 goal. Celebrities including Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Ryan Seacrest, Usher, Jennifer Hudson and others vowed to stay off all social media sites until the donation goal was reached. At the rate they were going at, it looked like the celebs would be off Twitter until January 2011.

Thanks to the generosity of self-made billionaire Stewie Rahr, the virtually dead celebs have risen from their online graves. Stewie Rah Rah, as he’s affectionately known, donated $500,000 to Alicia Keys’ AIDS/HIV charity. In the past Rahr has donated to multiple charities including the Make-A-Wish foundation, Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, Robin Hood Foundation and gave a $2 million donation to Columbia Medical Center for an eating disorder prevention program.

Welcome to the first episode of The Sing-Off Season 2. Last week, I introduced you to the 10 a cappella groups that would grace the stage this year and tonight, we get to hear them perform for the first time. This year, the show is bringing it to the next level with new challenges and more groups than ever before. The vocal battle is on and tonight, two groups will fall.

We begin the show with an amazing a cappella rendition of Music In Me with all 10 teams singing together. The harmonies and individual sections really bring out the best in each teams musicality and style. It really sets up the evening well to show you what we can look forward to tonight. There are some wailers this year and some great looking guys too. So lets see who has what it takes to stay and not be one of the two teams to be eliminated tonight.

Host Nick Lachey welcomes everyone to the show and introduces us to the judges that will be critiquing the 10 teams. Ben Folds, Nicole Scherzinger, and Shawn Stockman. Tonight, the teams will be singing their signature song to show off their strongest skills but the judges will only save 8 out of the 10 teams.

Rodiney Santiago 2011 Calendar Sneak Peak

In: Patrick, Totally GAY!

If you’ve been following The A-List New York like I have, you’d know that Rodiney Santiago has been struggling to get his modeling career going in New York, as being told time and time again that he’s too Miami. Instead, Rodiney, who is dating Reichen Lehmkul, decides to do a calendar instead and he’s released a little teaser video of the steamy photoshoot. Eat your heart out Austin. He is Rodiney’s rival on the show, also struggling to get his modeling career going…but unfortunately, as he put it, he “likes food too much”).

Rodiney may struggle with his English, but he certainly doesn’t struggle with taking hot photos and maintaining a hot body. With photos by Carlos Arias, it looks like the calendar will be A-List for sure, but the DVD that goes along with it will be even better! All Calendar orders (get ’em here) up to December 20th, 2010 will receive Limited Edition autographed copies by Rodiney. The calendar & DVD separately each cost $19.99, or you can get them together for $34.99.

I dunno about everyone else, but I’m a little hard up for music lately. Haven’t found anything that’s made me sweat or tingle, or cough at the very least, but there are a few ditties I’m enjoying (I think I overuse the word ditty in these articles and I do apologize to the Irish), so here’s a couple picks. Take ’em or leave ’em. I’m taking ’em.

Fold In Your Hands (Keljet Mix) – Passion Pit

Do I love Passion Pit more than a bowl of Moosetracks icecream?? The answer is actually no. Although I appreciate their music, I like PP, but only love a small portion of their songs. I do however love most remixed Passion Pit, and love the remixes Passion Pit does themselves (best California Gurls remix out of the bunch IMHO). Keljet’s given us a great XX remix, and a pretty good Temper Trap remix, but they nail it with this one. It’s got just enough pep to be clubby, and just enough integrity to not be over the top. I liked it the first time I heard it, and loved it by the third.

SWTS Season 1 Episode 3 Performances

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Welcome to another evening of Skating With the Stars. Last week, all the stars skated to the best of their ability with only one week to prepare their new routines. The challenge was to dance a Tango or a Swing routine and use the required element of a lift and a synchronized footwork sequence. Sean Young got tripped up twice in her routine and with that, was the first star eliminated from the competition.

Tonight, the stars meet their next challenging required element, a jump. The judges will be looking for speed and attack, distance and degree of difficulty. They also must land on one foot. Considering that some of the stars are still having a problem staying balanced, it’ll be interesting to see which stars soar and which stars fall on their face. As well, the couples must tell a story of love throughout their routine and stay in character.

Before we get started, the show has suffered some serious injuries and dilemmas today. To begin with, Brandon Mychal Smith was rushed to hospital earlier this morning with a stomach virus and breathing troubles. Also during rehearsal, Brooke Castile, partner to Jonny Moseley fell and had her finger sliced to the bone by his skate. She was rushed to hospital and stitched up to be ready for tonight’s show.

Check out my recap on each performance after the jump…
