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.
Oh what the heck, I’m going there. In my last article, I mentioned I’m going through a breakup and I’m coming to realize that several other people I know are too so why not share my list with others. Spring Fever, I guess!
Over the past week, I put in the effort to dig up songs that really spoke to how I was feeling and really help you get through the angry part. Yes, I’m not listening to the depressing types of breakup songs that make you cry. I’m listening to the “eff you” type songs that help build myself back up. I’m sure many of you have had these songs on your playlist at one time or another when going through a breakup, while others may want to add them in right now if they’re going through it now. Enjoy!
Rihanna & Chris Brown are back together, but the infamous and unfortunate “incident” that occurred before the Grammy’s a few years back hasn’t gone away.
In next week’s episode of Law & Order: SVU, without saying it exactly in so many words, they are portraying a story inspired by what happened between Rihanna and Chris Brown – complete with the photographed bruised face. The narrator says, “A familiar story of two celebrities intertwined by abused.”
Instead of Chris, the character’s name is Caleb and the members of the SVU team have a hard time getting through to the abused girlfriend because they say Caleb has a hold on her. Of course it’s Law & Order so expect a twist at the end of the episode, just as the preview suggests. Check out the preview below.
Nope. That’s not a typo. And yes Vin Diesel, the one who stars in all those Fast and The Furious films. The 45-year-old actor uploaded a video of himself singing Rihanna’s “Stay.” Who knew the buff stud was a karaoke monster? He can hang with me anytime. The 6’0″ stud posted his cover on his Facebook last night as a Valentine’s Day gift to all “V’s Angels.” Awwwww.
I had no idea the Vin was such a fan of Rihanna. He probably was super bummed when negotiations with RiRi to appear in the upcoming Fast & Furious fell through. Instead, production snagged poor-man’s Rihanna… Rita Ora. Oh well, it’s better than nothing, right? Check out Diesel’s rendition below. His deep baritone voice never sounded sexier. Hope you all had a great V-Day.
Jessie Ware, the British singer-songwriter who turned out one of my favorite albums of 2012 has done it again. The amazingly talented woman recently did a beautiful cover of Rihanna’s massive hit “Diamonds” for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge series.
On the track, the singer takes the powerful pop-ballad and turns it into a sultry, seductive song that has a more personal and soulful sound than its original counterpart.
If you love cover songs as much as I do, you should definitely check this one out. Whether you’re taken or single, it’s the perfect addition to your love songs’ playlist!
This past weekend, Rihanna performed her beautiful ballad, “Stay” at the Grammy Awards. Now, the music video for the song is out and we’ve got it for you to check out below.
Rihanna really shows her softer, more vulnerable side in the video as she strips down and sits very still in the bathtub. “The video was really, really simple. I pretty much stayed put in a bathtub,” Rihanna told E!. She’s deep in thought and really connected emotionally with the lyrics. There are moments where it’s as if she loses her breath on the word “Stay,” which I found very powerful. Is she talking about Chris Brown and her inner turmoil in deciding that she wanted to be back together with him? That’s what I got from it, but this type of thing is open to interpretation and anyone can make what they want of it.
The song and video is a duet with Nashville singer, Mikky Ekko and the two voices work really well together on this song. Rihanna had promised an “emotional,” “personal” and “powerful” video with “Stay” and I’m thinking that she certainly delivered. Check out the video below.
