After spilling the beans ahead of schedule, turns out Miley Cyrus was telling the truth. She is Maxim’s Hottest Woman of 2013. The men’s magazine gave their annual top honors to the 20-year-old actress. I wonder what happened in their eyes to propel Cyrus all the way from No. 68- where she placed on last year’s Maxim Hot 100- to the top spot. Was it her more punk rock look? Perhaps her guest appearances on CBS’ Two and a Half Men? Whatever it is, we’ll never know. Maxim didn’t disclose their reasoning nor scientific algorithm for their calculations ;)

Coming in the runner-up slot is another product of the Disney machine. Selena Gomez jumps from No. 24 from last year. Rounding out the top three is Rihanna. The “Diamonds” singer landed at No. 32 in 2012. Funny how both women seesaw back and forth with their highly-publicized romances with Justin Bieber and Chris Brown respectively. Apparently, indecision is hot to Maxim. Check out the other ladies who made the cut. They include more Disney stars, an Oscar Winner, a witch and of course a couple of ladies with really big knockers.

I’m all about “Stay” these days. It’s quickly become one of my favorite Rihanna songs of all-time. Too bad, the coaches of The Voice Australia didn’t cover that ballad instead.

That said, their rendition of “Diamonds” isn’t too shabby. Surprisingly for me, Joel Madden shined the brightest. I almost wish the Good Charlotte member sang the entire thing himself. Aussie’s sweetheart, Delta Goodrem, also sounded at ease with her parts. She also looked fantastic.

On the flip side, Seal had difficulty with the RiRi track. Are her notes too big for him? While a great performer, Ricky Martin didn’t feel natural on the track either. During his solos, it felt like he was trying to make “Diamonds” sound like “Livin’ La Vida Loca.” She’s (Ricky) is so dramatic when she sings ;) Check out the performance below.

Fifth Harmony Covers Rihanna

In: Donovan, Music

It wouldn’t be a week without a Fifth Harmony video. If it kills me, I’m going to make these girls happen ;) I know I’m not the only Harmonizer out there who feels this way. Right?

After hearing all the other girls’ choices up to this point, it was my girl Normani Hamilton’s turn to pick a song for the group to cover. We must be on the same wavelength, because girl knew exactly what I was craving… a little Rihanna. Not just any old track, but my current favorite. Haters can hate, but “Stay” is a pretty awesome track and a great choice to cover.

Being that it was her pick, Normani slays it on the verse of the ballad. The harmonies aren’t my favorite, but Normani and Lauren are everything during their solos. With each girl having picked a song to cover, I hope this doesn’t mean that we’re in for a dry spell until the girls debut their first single. Here’s hoping this isn’t so. Check out Fifth Harmony’s “Stay” rendition below.

“Hermoine just stole our sh*t.” Based on that line alone, I’m sooooo seeing this. After releasing a faux Pineapple Express 2 movie trailer on April Fools’ Day to promote This Is The End, Seth Rogen drops an actual one for it. It’s the second red band trailer for his on-screen reunion with James Franco.

This Is The End” features all the actors playing fictional versions of themselves. They congregate at Franco’s house for a kick ass house party. Given that it’s a gathering in Hollywood, expect a few celebrities to pop in. Rihanna, Aziz Ansari, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Paul Rudd and Mindy Kaling all partake in the festivities. Rihanna even slaps Cera after he makes the moves on her.

During the party, as luck would have it, the end of the world happens. One by one people start dropping dead. Rihanna gets swallowed up by the earth and Cera gets lanced by a light post. An axe-wielding Emma Watson also makes an appearance in the flick. Check out the brand new trailer featuring some violence and lots of references to titty f**king.

Here’s a title Rihanna probably never expected, nor wanted for that matter. The Barbadian singer’s “Skrillex” hairstyle has been voted the worst hair trend of the 21st century. She garnered 20% of the vote on the survey conducted by British hair care retailer Fabriah.com.

Personally, I kinda like the whole one side shaved long hair look. It looks great on the “Stay” singer and others including Cassie and Ellie Goulding. I’m not just saying that either because my current look is short all around with long hair on top ;)

“I am not at all surprised the ‘Skrillex’ look claimed the prize as the worst hair trend of the 21st Century. What is surprising, however, is the number of people still copying the style. I would never have imagined the haircut becoming so popular.” – Francesca Davies, a spokeperson for Fabriah.com

Coming in second in the poll was David Beckham’s cornrows with 19% of the vote. I definitely agree with that. It’s not a good look on the soccer player. Other celebrities making the dishonorable list include Justin Timberlake’s blond curly mane from his ‘N Sync days and Scarlett Johansson’s mullet. American Idol judge Nicki Minaj also made the cut for all her various colorful wigs. Check out the entire Top 10 list below.

This morning, Chris Brown stopped by Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show for an interview about his music and of course all of the things that have happened in his personal life over the past few years.

They first talk about his music and how he has a new album coming out called X, the roman numeral for ten which is how many years he’s now been in the business (he’s only 24 years old right now). X is also the 24th letter in the alphabet and he also has an X tattoo so it all has meaning to him. Brown will be releasing a new single on April 1 called “Fine China” and also worked with Jennifer Lopez on some music (I think both for his album as well as for hers).

The meaty part of the interview is how he handles the questions about what happened with Rihanna and the downward spiral after that. He was also asked how he responds to fans that say, “I like his music but I can’t like him anymore.” He was also asked “What’s the greatest lesson you’ve learned going through that hard time?

I have to say that this is the best interview he has ever done and really seems to get how people perceive him and really accepts responsibility for everything he did, how he acted and what was at stake. He doesn’t make any excuses for what he did and really seems to have changed. Listen to the interview below and share your thoughts in the comments.

Logo recently announced the nominees for their annual NewNowNext Awards. Now in its sixth year, this highly praised and always unpredictable telecast is one big party that grants the gay stamp of approval to pop culture icons and trendsetters as well as stars-on-the-rise and celebrates what’s hot in TV, music, film and fashion for 2013 and beyond.

If you haven’t watch the NewNowNext Awards, they’re a lot of fun. With irreverent and outrageous categories including “Hottest, Sexiest Ink,” “Host with the Most,” “That’s My Jam” and “TV You Betta Watch,” the ceremony is always fun to watch. My personal favorite is the “Cause You’re Hot” award. All of the nominees are definitely worthy of the win. I covered the red carpet and ceremony a couple of years ago and think its time to check them out again. Especially given the caliber of the nominees. I love star gazing.

Winners will be revealed Monday, April 15th at 10/9C, during the 90-minute Logo NewNowNext Awards 2013 telecast.  The special will be taped in front of a live audience of today’s hottest emerging and seasoned artists at The Fonda Theater in Hollywood, CA on April 13th.  Performers, presenters and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks. Check out all the nominees below.
