Style, attitude and confidence is what Victoria’s Secret looks for when determining their annual round-up of all things sexy. At least, that’s what they say according to their website.

Earning this year’s Sexiest Actress honor is Kerry Washington. The Scandal actress takes the torch from last year’s winner Rachel McAdams. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez snags the Forever Sexy crown from Rihanna who earned the title last year.

Throughout her career, Rihanna has often been labeled a singles artist. To be fair, it did take her seven tries to finally snag a No. 1 album, despite scoring numerous hit singles.

After a couple of misses leading up to the launch of Anti, I feared Rihanna’s best days might’ve been behind her. The 28-year-old certainly proved all her critics wrong with “Work.” The dancehall-tinged track is her latest to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Believe it or not, “Work” is her 14th chart-topper. A couple of them are suspect in my opinion because all she does is sing the hook on predominantly rap songs. It seems like cheating to me, but if it’s okay with Billboard, it’s fine with me. Even if you take away her rap collabos, she still has plenty.

With 14 number ones, RiRi passes Michael Jackson to have the third-most Hot 100s of all-time. Only The Beatles and Mariah Carey are ahead of her with 20 and 18 chart-toppers respectively. Watch out Mimi, the Barbados-born singer and her Navy are coming for you next 😉

Check out all her No. 1 hits below. Be sure to scroll all the way to the end of the post to see my ranking of all her hits.

worst-passwords

In this day and age, it’s extremely surprising ‘password‘ is still one of the most commonly used passwords out there. I’d love to meet these fools in person and slap them silly.

Password management company SplashData recently released its annual round-up of the worst passwords used. The list is based on more than 2 million passwords that leaked online during the year. Not surprisingly, this year’s top movie, Star Wars, ranked among the Top 25. Check out the entire list below.

My choices aren’t too surprising. There’s no obscure B-side single here. Check out my Top 5 below and weigh in below.

Happy Birthday Dolly and many more to come!!!

The recording industry lost another pioneering legend on Monday. The Eagles guitarist and founding member Glenn Frey passed away due to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia. He was 67-years-old at the time of his death. The news was confirmed on Frey’s official website.

Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia. The Frey family would like to thank everyone who joined Glenn to fight this fight and hoped and prayed for his recovery. Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community & millions of fans worldwide.” via his official website

Though he was the guitarist, Frey sang lead vocals on some of The Eagles’ biggest hits. When the group disbanded, the Detroit-born musician ventured out on his own and crafted some of the biggest hits of the 80s. By far, his biggest contributions were for The Beverly Hills Cop and Miami Vice soundtracks.

Check out my five favorite songs below from his solo career and the times he sang lead vocals for The Eagles. Our condolences go out to his family, friends and his former bandmates.

top-25-gay-trailblazing-companies

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Logo TV puts the spotlight on companies that have served as pioneers and advocates for the LGBT community. Through their advertising, communications, and other visible actions, these companies have demonstrated their unwavering LGBT support over the years. Here’s the methodology on how Logo ranked the Top 25 Trailblazing Companies.

“This list was created through extensive research conducted in partnership with Witeck Communications. Starting from a pool of close to 200 consumer-facing companies that earned 100 percent scores on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2015 Corporate Equality Index, we evaluated each company based on seven objective criteria that demonstrate each company’s support of the LGBT community in the public sphere, including: Inclusive Advertising, Digital Video & Social Media, Policy Support, Spokespersons & C-Suite Executives, Donations & Sponsorships, Website Engagement, and Marriage Equality Support. Companies were awarded points based on their activity in each of these areas. The final list is composed of the 25 companies who earned the highest scores across all seven criteria.”

Not surprisingly, the list is comprised of very successful companies. It pays to be very LGBT-inclusive. Find out below to see how Gap, GM, Google and others ranked on the list.

rhobh-season-6-taglines

The extremely loaded bitches of Beverly Hills return to Bravo tonight. Who else is excited?

Without Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards as full-time cast members, I’m a little worried this season might be a snoozefest. Love them or hate them, that crazy duo always brought the drama wherever they went. Will their replacements bring the heat? Based on their taglines, I’m not overly optimistic.

To be fair, it’s hard for a newbie to craft a memorable opener. Very few achieve that feat on their first try. While newbies Kathryn Edwards and Erika Girardi didn’t do it, at least they did better than veteran Kyle Richards.

Truthfully, I’ve never liked Kyle’s tagline. On the flip side, Lisa Vanderpump never fails to deliver. Check out all the RHOBH Season 6 taglines below and see how I ranked them.

First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to all our US readers. Hope you’re not eating too much turkey today. Something I can never accomplish. I tend to overindulge big time during the holiday season.
