Aww, when Bad Boy was actually a record label that signed real talent as opposed to everyone and their mama, now.

The Harajuku Barbie shows off her acting chops on lastnight's SNL with a Lonely Island digital short called The Creep and playing bride to Keenan Thompson's Frankenstein in the spoof Bride of Blackenstein.

Wowing the fellas with her famous backside in Bride of Blackenstein.

4th Season of Jersey Shore in....ITALIA!!!!!

So, how do you say fist-pump in Italian?!

Snooki, J-Woww, The Situation, Pauly D, Ronnie, Deena, Vinnie and Sammi will be heading to Italy to film the fourth installment of the Jersey Shore series.


We'll actually see REAL Italians on that show now, because as you know not all of the cast members are F.B.I.s (Fully Blooded Italians).

MTV confirmed the news this morning and expects the season to premiere later this year.

MTV programming V.P. Chris Linn tells the Associated Press:

"While the stateside 'Jersey Shore' locales have become iconic for our audience, it's really the constantly evolving dynamic amongst the cast that keeps them coming back each season," said. "Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us."

Can I just say I can't get enough of this show?!

I really hope my dream about being the newest castmember comes true!

Roman's Revenge 2.0

Now that Weezy is out of the slammer, he's able to put his magical touch on artists' tracks, and he couldn't let good ol' Nicki Minaj have an album without having her Young Money Papi on the track!

It's Lil' Tunechi meets Roman Zoolanksi, on Roman's Revenge 2.0 replacing Eminem's part in the original song.

Lil' Wayne > Eminem....clearly.

Gaga Releases Mixed Version of New Song

A short video featured for Thierry Mugler's on January 19th features a remixed cut from Gaga's highly anticipated album Born This Way.

The house of Mugler is newly under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti, Gaga's costume cohort and personal stylist.

Since I'm East-Indian...and I love Michael Jackson, I deemed this video appropriate for my blog.

Throwback Monday!

Heard this on my 1:30am drive to work this morning and put me in a good mood.

Do you guys remember the choreography? I know I do!

I almost forgot I had the Speakerboxx/Low Below Album.

Oh, yeah, I forgot because aside from the singles......

the album sucked!

Britney's New Single LEAKED Early!

Brit's single Hold it Against Me has been leaked hours earlier than it was supposed to.

It's on various gossip blogs ie: Perez, but that link didn't work too well for me. So I got it off of Ryan Seacrest's Facebook page.

Honestly, I'm not very impressed. Though I did grow up learning how to shake my hair like the Pop Princess, I expected something a littler better from her. This song sounds like something I'd hear at Abercombie & Fitch. However, I can totally imagine hearing this at the club.

I'm hoping this song grows on me.

Omarion Claims to LOVE WOMEN!

The supposed outed R&B singer took to his twitter while overseas in Japan and denounced the claims of him releasing a press release regarding his sexuality.

 @1Omarion: Check it out 'I DID NOT RELEASE THAT STATEMENT',whatever you like is your business but I AINT GAY OR BISEXUAL,I love women PERIOD!!!!!!!

Omarion went to Funkmaster Flex to clear up the rumors and later tweeted.....

@1Omarion: The world is so gullible smh...1luv..IMA still do me!

Gossip blogs are swirling that Raz B released the phony statement.
Why can't this dude just go out and get a JOB!?
This does make sense....why would a celebrity out themselves via press release? Especially a random press release website.
Ah. I guess I'm just as gullible as the rest of the world, Omari!
Glad everything's cleared up!

Press Release Claims Omarion's Bi-Sexual


According to, the former B2K frontman released the news via press release saying:

I pride myself in being an honest, God Fearing, respectful man. I have kept my personal life private and wanted to keep it that way. Unfortunately, other’s are interested in profiting from my anguish; so before they can do that, i will clarify things. I am not at all what certain ex-band members are trying to paint me as, I am however a respectable, mature, proud, bisexual man.

The announcement follows a the Jan. 6th news from H8terade when the blog outed the R&B singer. Former B2K bandmate Raz B was the one who leaked the information.

*Surprise* Raz is probably broke as a joke!

We did some investigating and it was confirmed. Apparently back in 2009 he was dating a young man who he took to the Ciara listening party for her flopped album Fantasy Ride. We got the photo’s to prove it.

However this all kind of makes sense to me....
No wonder he wanted to date Khloe Kardashian in the first season of Kourtney and Khloe take Miami!

2011 Mantra

I was perusing some fashion blogs today and came across this well-said paragraph on what one blogger's goal is for 2011. I absolutely fell in love with it and had to share it.

I entered in my name as the person this paragraph is directed to, but the original said *Erika.

Around the Bay Gal,
In all that you do, be selective. Do not waste your time doing things that will not benefit you. Be discerning in who you spend your time with and meticulous in your studies. Be incomparable and striking in your work. Exercise every day and eat deliciously, but healthily. Be outstanding in your blogging. Be admirable. Be cultivated. Oh, and be splendid in your dressing!

-Style Activist

I need some pop back in my life!!!!!

Famous quotes from my boyfriend Pauly D!

*boyfriend, I wish!

I've been waiting for the new season since season 2 in Miami ended.

I can't wait to see how the new castmember, Dina gets along with all of the other roommates.

From the previews I like her so far because she tells Sammi off.
Are you going to watch?

Throwback Monday!

Reasons for this video:

1.) I miss Michael Jackson.
2.) I just came back from Disneyland and saw Captain EO for the first time since I was 2 years old and remembered how much I loved this song.
3.) Did I mention I miss Michael Jackson?

West Siiiiiide!

Finally! After waiting for what seems like FOREVER, Dr. Dre is back releasing a single from his highly-anticipated Detox album!

I hope this means the West Coast is back!
Well, we can call dream can't we?

The first single features who else? None other than S-N-DOUBLE O-P! Oh, yeah...and Akon's in there too.

I've missed that West Coast sound. I don't know how to describe it, but when I listen to it: low-riders, flannel shirts, Dodger fitted baseball hats and the Nike Cortez come to mind. Basically that specific sound brings me back to 1995.


The full-length video of Kanye West's new single Monster ft. Bon Iver, Jay-z, Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross was leaked a few days prior to the New Year.

The video is  very creative, but damn is it scary!

Again, doesn't do much to hinder those Illuminati rumors.
I love the song, but I feel if I watch this video too many times I may have nightmares.

What the Hell!?

Looks like Kimmy is channeling Bo Derek in the movie 10.
Yes, that movie is before my time, and if it's before your's as well check out the photo below to get my meaning.

Kardashian tweeted: Ok just took a quick nap and woke up with a whole new look. The day her new 'do was revealed. No one really knows what they're for. At first gossip sites speculated her new hair was for the New Years Eve party she was hosting at Tao in Las Vegas. However, the reality-star tweeted this photo of herself with her brother Rob, tweeting that he was her date for NYE.

Rumors are swirling that Kim is doing this for her upcoming music video or just to shock all of us. She supposedly played the single last night during her NYE bash at Tao.

I'm more shocked that she's actually putting out a song, than being shocked by the braids.

I wonder if she wore a do-rag to keep those babies from frizzin' up!


Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you all had a blast ringing in 2011 and are ready to do work. Whether you are working towards that new body for summer, on your grind to land that dream job or promotion or just wanting to better yourself mentally, I wish you ALL the best!

Remember to wish for something extra special today at 11:11!
