Melanie Fiona "Subway Series" (Canada)

I really do need to wife Melanie Fiona up.

She's beautiful, she's one the best singers in the game and she doing something creative by going to subways in the world and singing acapella.

This is great way to show her singing prowess and introducing herself to different cities.

If ML finds her way to Ohio, tell her I got a ring for her!!

Michael Jackson Finishes As 2009’s Third Top-Earning on Forbes Dead Celebrity


(via Access Hollywood)

Michael Jackson might be the King of Pop, but when it comes to bringing in the bucks even after death, fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent still tops the charts.

Forbes recently revealed their annual list of “Top-Earning Dead Celebrities,” with Saint Laurent – who died of brain cancer in June 2008 — grossing $350 million over the past 12 months.

The bulk of YSL’s earnings came in a three-day estate sale in February, run by Christie’s auction house, which sold off many of the French icon’s possessions, including expensive art, antiques and furniture.

Coming in second on the list this year was Broadway legendary duo Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein (who died in 1979 and 1960, respectively), who brought in a combined $235 million thanks to catalog licensing fees.

In the four months since Michael Jackson’s death, his estate has brought in $90 million, according to Forbes – placing the King of Pop third on the list.

Adding to Jackson’s total was the $60 million Sony shelled out for the rights to “This Is It,” which had its world premiere on Tuesday night.

Not to be outdone – Michael’s music also garnered huge profits since his untimely passing on June 25, selling an estimated 9 million albums worldwide, in addition to more than 5.5 million digital downloads.

While the King of Pop finished third on Forbes’ list, the King of Rock wasn’t far behind.

Elvis Presley’s estate earned $55 million between October 1, 2008 and October 1, 2009 – a $3 million boost from a year ago, thanks to licensing/merchandising deals and admissions to the Graceland property.

Of note, both Michael and Elvis out-earned several notable living music acts, as well. Bon Jovi raked in $50 million over the past 12 months and pop princess Britney Spears earned $35 million.

Rounding out the top five is “Hobbit” creator; author J.R.R. Tolkien, whose works brought in $50 million.

Tolkien, who died in 1973, earned the bulk of the cash after settling a long-standing lawsuit with New Line Cinema over the profits of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy.


Forbes’ Complete Top 10 Top-Earning Dead Celebrities:
1. Yves Saint Laurent, $350 million
2. Rodgers & Hammerstein, $235 million
3. Michael Jackson, $90 million
4. Elvis Presley, $55 million
5. J.R.R. Tolkien, $50 million
6. Charles Schulz, $35 million
7. John Lennon, $15 million
8. Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss), $15 million
9. Albert Einstein, $10 million
10. Michael Crichton, $9 million

Adam Lambert Goes Glam on Debut Album Cover


Ahh to be young, talented and androgynous; Ziggy Stardust, Prince, Annie Lenox and every Poison tribute band in the U.S. would be proud.

For his upcoming debut album "For Your Entertainment", American Idol runner up Adam Lambert told his fans on Twitter "Thank you to those who appreciate and understand that the album cover is deliberately campy. It’s an homage to the past. It IS ridiculous."

He later wrote, “For those that don’t get it: oh well… Glad to have gotten your attention...Androgyny. Rock n Roll.”

Rock n Roll indeed, my mascaraed friend, Rock N' Roll indeed.

For Your Entertainment will be released November 23rd.

"Dexter: Early Cuts", Cartoon Hits Showtime Website


If you fan of the lovable, but demented charcter Dexter on Showtime, (not to be confused with the lovable, but demented charcter on the Cartoon Network), Sho.com recently created "Dexter: Early Cuts", a three part webisode series focusing on three of Dex’s earliest kills.

Reminicent of HBO's fantasic cartoon Spawn back in the day, here's hoping that more graphic novel cartoons will make their return back to cable one day.

And Winners of Real Chance For Love 2 Are...

In the finale of "Real Chance For Love 2: Back in the Saddle", the fellas went for the two young'uns:

Real choose cutie pie "Doll" over supefreaky "Sassy", (but I have to say Pocahontas should've been in the final two over Sassy).

While Chance waffled a bit, but eventually chose the # 1 stunner "Hot Wings" over the sexy "Mamacita" (ooh caliente!).


Hot Wings and Doll

I wasn't sure about this season, since the last season was really good (Corn Fed and Bay Bay Bay where are you?). But the season 2 ladies were pretty engaging, (I still think trouble maker"Blonde Baller" was bounced too fast).

However, it really doesn't matter who they guys chose, because in reality Real & Chance probably won't be with Doll and Hot Wings anyway.

But hey ladies, if Real and Chance don't want you, give me call...do y'all like Doubstacks and Frostys from Wendy's!?!

TVOne's Life After: Bell, Biv Devoe, Pretty Compelling

When VH1 premiered "Behind The Music: New Edition" last year, I cried foul because the show should've been on longer than an hour. As a guy who grew up during that era, the New Edition story was one that fans really never knew.

Sure we knew we loved their songs and Bobby Brown was basically an open book, but Ralph, Ronnie, Ricky, Mike and later Johnny has always remained mystery outside of their hits

VH1's recent Behind The Music with Bobby Brown, cracked the New Edition door a little bit more, but TV One's "Life After: Bell, Biv, Devoe" moved a few hinges.

As Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie Devoe spoke how they went from the background to one of the leading acts of the early 90's , you forget how musically intoxicating and influential their debut album "Poison" was, (keep in mind, this is before Sean "Puffy" Combs created Bad Boy. In fact this was prior to Combs working with Mary J. Blige and Jodeci at Uptown Records).

Couple of things that stood out from "Life After" includes how lead singer Ralph Tresvant wanted to leave the group prior to the "N.E. Heartbreak" album and that there is now a business divide with BBD one side and Ralph, Bobby and Johnny Gill one the other.

One thing that I also respected about rock acts like Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles is that even though some of these members may hated each other, they still understood that business is business and personal is personal.

Diana Ross and The Supremes has yet to figure this out, neither has Lionel Richie and The Commodores.

Hopefully New Edition will wake up one day before they turn 50 yeaqrs old, put their issues aside and make some money or better yet, make some good music.

Check out Life After: Bell Biv Devoe on TV One

He's Dead Right? The Ghost of Chris Farley Joins David Spade in DirectTV Commercial

What in the Tupac Shakur is going on?

There I was in middle of the Anheim Angels and New York Yankees series, when I saw a very much alive Chris Farley twirling around as David Spade pitched for a Direct TV commericial.

But wait, didn't F arely die in 1997?

Yep! But I guess Spade was given an offer he couldn't refuse to dig his friends's image up from the grave, (couldn't they have used a clip from Spade's "Joe Dirt"?)

Although it was fun to see Farley again, the majoity of the blogs and tweets feel that Spade sold his old friend out for a piece of change.

Rick Ross (Feat. Robin Thicke) - Lay Back

I am not the biggest Rick Ross fan in the world, but I really do like this track..even though it would've been an even stronger track if its was Robin Thicke featuring Rick Ross than vice versa.

Trailer – Drool (Starring Jill Marie Jones)




Anytime I get to see the beautiful Jill Marie Jones (Girlfriends),
it's a good day!!!

I'm not sure how good "Drool" (co-starring Laura Harring) will be,
but the fact that she is playing a lesbian on the run after a murder,
I'm there in the front row!

ESPN Not Playing Fair with the Steve Phillips Scandal (Photo)

Another week, another sex scandal.

This time however we have a repeat offender.

ESPN Baseball Tonight analyst Steve Phillips and his family were being stalked by a 22 year-old ESPN employee named Brooke Hundley (pictured below), for whom he had an affair with this past summer.

According to the New York Post, after Phillips, 46 broke it off with Hundley, she pulled a "Fatal Attraction" and started doing odd things including:

* Pretending to be a high school classmate of his son on Facebook to learn more about the family.

* Leaving a letter for Phillips' wife Marni, detailing their affair from where the duo had their trysts to the birth marks on Phillips' body, (Marni Phillips has since filed for divorce)

The last time ESPN went through a public sex scandal was in 2006, when current MLB Network host and former ESPN Baseball Tonight co-host Harold Reynolds was fired for sexual harassment.

Reynolds sued ESPN and refuted the claim, saying that all he did was give a co-worker a hug.

In 2008, Reynolds reached an out of court settlement with ESPN.

In stark contrast, Steve Phillips has been suspended, but not fired by ESPN.

Ironically, before ESPN hired Phillips in 2005, the former New York Mets GM had an affair with a Mets employee Rosa Rodriguez in 1998.

But the question now is why was ESPN so quick to fire Reynolds with very little evidence, where Philips sexual indiscretion is not only well documented but he admitted the affair to the police?

I smell a double standard.

Did Steve Phillips do anything illegal? No.

But he did have sex with a ESPN subordinate, after doing the same thing with the Mets.

How does that not justify a swift dismissal like Reynolds who ultimately did nothing wrong?

Too bad we can't throw mics into the faces of ESPN executives like they do to athletes huh?

San Franicsco Giants Pictcher Brad Penny Hooks up With DWTS' Karina Smirnoff

This month Esquire Magazine named Kate Beckinsale, not Transformer's star Meagan Fox as their "Sexiest Woman Alive". I can't really disagree with the choice.

The sexy Brit has been favorite of mine since Pearl Harbor and her subsequent roles in the Underworld movies and the underrated film "Nothing But The Truth".

When you see Kate Beckinsale interviewed on Conan O'Brien for instance, she comes across a woman not hung up on her looks and one who is up for a good laugh.

In essence, she's the woman whom you might not get, but she'll least give you the opportunity to try. Very cool

Not to be outdone, in their "More Women We Love", Esquire featured another favorite of mine Kerry Washington, which begs the question.

Former Bad Boy Rapper Rapper Shyne To Be Released from Prison Today



10/9 Update: According to Rolling Stone, Shyne says he never received a phone call from Mr. Sean Combs, even though Combs told Hot 97 in New York that he talked to him a few weeks ago.

Shyne said, " “I want it known that this supposed conversation is a figment of Sean Combs’ imagination,” he says in a statement. “He never spoke with me, he never visited me nor would I ever accept a phone call or visit from him. The only way I would do either of those things would be if he stepped up and did the right thing for the victims of the incident.”

Rapper Shyne is expected to be released from prison today according to online reports. Shyne, real name Jamal Barrow, was sentenced to 10 years in prison following a nightclub shooting involving music mogul Sean Combs and pseudo singer/actress Jennifer Lopez. Sean Combs narrowly missed going to prison on the same gun charges and Barrow ended up taking the fall.

It can be said that this incident took the shine off Sean Combs’ sterling reputation. His gal pal Jennifer Lopez unceremoniously dumped Sean after he was acquitted. Will Shyne return to prominence as one of Hip Hop’s most eminent MC’s? Or will he fade into the background of Hip Hop obscurity.

Lady Gaga Perfoms Paparazzi & Poker Face on SNL

Lady Gaga is a perfect of melding of Madonna and Bette Midler. One part dance diva, another part soulful vocalist, Lasy Gaga's Saturday Night Live performance continues to show there are more to her than crazy costumes and crazy Hermaphrodite rumors.

Its a shame that her "Fame Kills" tour with Kanye West crashed and burned because it would have broaden her musical base, but if she continues to evolve as an artist, more people learn about LG's talent.

David Letterman's ex-intern Holly Hester is Second Woman Alleged to To Leep with 'Late Night' Host



(New York Daily News)

A former "Late Show" intern came forward Saturday to say she is one of David Letterman's former flings.

"I was madly in love with him at the time," Holly Hester told TMZ.com. "I would have married him. He was hilarious."

The NYU alum said the relationship started when Letterman asked her on a date to the movies.

A year-long, secret romance ensued, she said, until the funnyman called it off.

Letterman, 62, admitted on air Thursday night that he had affairs with female staffers, but did not name them.

He made the confession while revealing that a CBS News producers had tried to extort $2 million from him, threatening to reveal the sex secrets.

The producer, Joe Halderman, is free on $200,000 bond after pleading not guilty to the blackmail scheme.

He returned to his Norwalk, Conn., home late Friday and left briefly Saturday morning for a trip to the bank.

It was unclear if he returned to the same Bank of America branch where he deposited a phony check Letterman gave him as part of a sting operation.

Halderman, 51, was desperate and debt-ridden after a divorce from his wife.

Until recently, he was living with Stephanie Birkitt, 34, a "Late Show" staffer believed to be one of the women Letterman bedded.

Letterman - who married longtime love Regina Lasko in March - has not spoken since his on-air mea culpa and Birkitt has not been reached for comment.

10/3 Update Second Woman Comes Forward: Former Intern Holly Hester




October 02, 2009, (Sawf News) - One of his female staffers that David Letterman had a sexual affair with is Stephanie Birkitt, according to he search warrant obtained by FOX 5 New York.



Birkitt, Letterman's former assistant, was till recently living with Robert J. Halderman, the 48 Hours producer charged with attempted grand larceny for allegedly threatening to expose Letterman's sexual relationships with his female staffers.

The package that Halderman allegedly sent to Letterman 3 weeks ago, while initiating his blackmail attempt, containing "supporting materials" included copies of excerpts from Birkitt's diary and her correspondence, according to the search warrant.

Halderman told Letterman that he would publish a book with more incriminating details including photos, letters and emails.

Before the sting operation, Halderman met undercover agents twice, once on September 23 when he told them he would not divulge the contents of the diary in exchange for $2 million.

Recounting how the extortion attempt began, Letterman told his audience on Thursday that he found a package in his car as he got into it early morning three weeks ago.

An accompanying letter read:

"I know that you do some terrible, terrible things and that I can prove that you do some terrible things." He acknowledged the letter contained proof.

He recalled that the experience was terrifying "because there's something insidious about (it). Is he standing down there? Is he hiding under the car? Am I going to get a tap on the shoulder?"

He reported the threat to the Manhattan District Attorney's Special Prosecution Bureau.

A sting operation was planned and executed during which Letterman handed over a fake $2 million check to the extortionist, who was subsequently arrested.
