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.

Book Review: Mockingjay

In: Dan, Random Reads

It is complete, and I have been amazed. That is the simplest way of stating the effect that the trilogy written by Suzanne Collins has had on my mind. A few weeks ago I began reading the Hunger Games, unbeknownst as to what lied ahead. Quickly, I was swept up in the story of Katniss Everdeen and her devastating life in District 12. The first book, aptly titled The Hunger Games explained and explored ideas of the ruling Capital, the yearly tortuous event of The Hunger Games and result of being a tribute and surviving the worst game known to the country of Panem.

Believe me, it is worth cycling back through my previous two book reviews of The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, to gain even a slight understanding of my love for this trio of brilliant literature. The third, and currently final edition of the trilogy, Mockingjay, is the perfect summation of what each unique character within the story had to face up to this point and the exquisite continuation of telling the story.

BG5 Wants You To “Scratch” Their Back

In: Donovan, Music

If I scratch your back, you need to scratch mine. You need to get yours I need to get mine

I’ve been itching for a new girl group, and the five ladies of Beach Girl5 might be the ones to relieve that scratch, literally. While The Saturday’sHigher” is still receiving heavy play on my playlist, I’m been looking for a new girl group guilty pleasure to add to my music library. Brooke Adams, Dominique Domingo, Noreen Juliano, Mandy Jiroux and Laura New are the five talented ladies who make up BG5.

The quintet met during a gig for the Professional Volleyball AVP tour. Even though they were hired individually for the event, they decided to stay together and continue as a group after their booking was over. Last year the girls competed and won Wango Tango’s KISS FM Break Out Stars contest. Not only did they win $10,000 but they received a chance to perform for the concert attendees. Prior to the group, they all individually achieved varying degrees of success in the entertainment industry. Ranging in jobs as backup dancers for Eminem, Miley Cyrus, failed record contracts and movie jobs (Bring It On). As Aristotle put it, Beach Girl5′s whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Their appearance on E!’s “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” gave the group nationwide exposure. Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner is actually their co-manager. To capitalize on that and promote their catchy new single, the girls are currently on a five-week promotional tour. I’m curious to see how the ladies are live.

Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Tomorrow, The Sundance Channel debuts its newest reality docu-drama, Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys. Based on the popular novel of the same title, “Girls…” focuses on the special relationship found between a straight woman and a gay man. The show faces head on some of the toughest challenges the four dynamic duos are going through including business, marriage, divorce, coming out, getting sober and starting a family.

Commonly known as “fag hags” or “fruit flies” these 4 women explain that there is something special about having a relationship with a gay man. You can trust them and you know they will never leave you. Sure there is drama, but as one girl puts it, its good drama. (What skewed reality does she live in?) Another girl says that her relationship with her gay is nothing more than dysfunctional sometimes. What can I say? Love us or hate, we’re here to stay and we’ll always be honest when that top you’re wearing is “so last season” or you really do look fat in that. Lets meet the four “couples”.

Meet the boys and the girls who like the boys who like boys after the jump…
