Rihanna’s fashion reality competition was originally slated to premiere on Style Network, but due to Esquire buying out the channel, Styled To Rock has a new home. Where else but Bravo of course. That Andy Cohen, always to the rescue, especially when it comes to pop singers gays love.
Similar to Project Runway, the Rihanna-executive produced series is looking for new designers to create fashion for A-list celebrities. Supported by their mentors, the candidates fight in a weekly battle for the final where the winner will walk away with $100,000 in cash, a fashion feature in Glamour magazine, and a chance to join Rihanna’s own design team.
On tap to mentor the contestants is everyone’s lucky charm Pharrell Williams, model Erin Wasson, and Rihanna’s stylist Mel Ottenberg. Weekly celebrity guest judges include Miley Cyrus, Carly Rae Jepsen, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Minogue, Kelly Osbourne, Kid Cudi, The Band Perry, Ne-Yo, Big Sean, and Nervo. Pretty impressive roster right? Catch all the action when Styled To Rock premieres on Friday, October 25 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
In other Rihanna-related news, ever wonder who was on the other side of the bathroom door while she moodily sang “Stay?” Wonder no more. Queen Latifah answers that question in a parody she filmed for her daytime talk show. Check it out below.
After watching this clip, even I want to smell like Rihanna. There’s no denying the woman is sexy but in this behind-the-scenes look for her fourth scent, the 25-year-old is beyond smoking. She’s serving over-the-shoulder hotness and come hither looks for days. The visual is almost better than her actual music video for “Right Here” which can be heard in the following vid. Check out Rogue below.
“People are always changing and evolving, and with Rogue, my new fragrance, I wanted to switch it up to reflect who I am today. It’s a personal fragrance that’s more self-aware. It’s Rogue, it’s me. This scent embodies demure feminine qualities yet carries into an audacious new moment. I made it for all women, for every mood, because we all want to project our true selves.” – Rihanna
What’s your song of the summer so far? Is it Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky?” How about “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke? Perhaps it’s Pitbull and Christina Aguilera’s catchy dance anthem “Feel This Moment?” DJ Earworm definitely considers them as viable contenders for the 2013 summer crown. The musical genius has once again worked his magic and delivered another wicked mashup. Praise the dance gods he doesn’t just do a year-end one.
Along with the aforementioned tracks, DJ Earworm includes hit tracks from Demi Lovato, Rihanna, Icona Pop, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Zedd, will.i.am and Justin Bieber to name a few. Props to my buddy Trevor Guthrie for getting a nod for his collaboration with Armin van Buuren in the mashup.
As much as I love DJ Earworm’s latest masterpiece, I feel he unfairly snubbed Selena Gomez’s “Come & Get It,” Mariah Carey’s “#Beautiful,” Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors,” and Miley Cyrus’ oddly addicting “We Can’t Stop.” I’ve definitely have all those songs on heavy rotation. Check out Earworm’s new mash below.
First she topped Maxim’s Hottest Women list and now this. While Miley Cyrus is no angel, labeling her the worst female celebrity role model is a tad unwarranted, especially given the trainwrecks out there like Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Farrah Abraham and so forth. Sure Cyrus is a bit wild, but she’s been with the same guy for years, hasn’t been in and out of rehab, been arrested or doing porn like the aforementioned ladies.
Apparently, the parents taking part in a survey conducted by CouponCodes4U disagree with me. Miley along with Chris Brown top the worst female and male celebrity role model lists respectively. PS. Brown definitely deserves his title and then some.
Also making the list is the Kardashian clan. While Khloe didn’t make the cut, Kim and her baby daddy Kanye West, Kourtney and Bruce Jenner were singled out. Bruce Jenner, really??? Why him? I don’t watch their E! show so I’m not sure why he’s being called out.
What I find fascinating about the survey is that most of the women are relatively young and in their 20s while only Justin Bieber and Brown are the only two under the age of 30. Interesting, don’t you think? Check out who else landed on the lists.
First he loses Selena Gomez and now this. The Biebs certainly isn’t having a banner year. The 19-year-old Canadian singer just lost the crown as the most-viewed artist on YouTube. Oh well, at least Justin Bieber still reigns supreme on Twitter. He became the first artist to lure in over 40 million followers. With that being said, there are reports that almost half of his followers are spam and inactive accounts. Poor guy. Find out who the new king, or should I say queen, of YouTube is below.
When it comes to female sexuality, there’s probably no better experts than the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Have you seen those tall beyotches strut their stuff on the glittered runway of the brand’s annual fashion show? I admit, as a gay man, I probably have an unhealthy fascination with all things VS-related. When you add an annual list to the mix, you know I’m all over it.
Watch as Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss, Erin Heatherton, Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio reveal the winners of Victoria’s Secret 8th annual list of sexiest celebrities in Hollywood. A few of the sexy honorees include Amanda Seyfried (Sexiest Hair), Blake Lively (Sexiest Legs), Kerry Washington (Sexiest Lips) and Jennifer Lawrence (Sexiest Sense of Humor) to name a few. Check out all the winners below.
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.
