Lindsay Lohan Headed Back To Court Again!

sylvs May 04, 2012

The hot mess actress we all know and love(d), Lindsay Lohan, is in trouble with the law... again! According to OK! magazine, last month Lilo was in West Hollywood at the Standard Hotel when she attacked a female named Marissa Sullivan Douglas and Douglas is sticking by her story with the West Hollywood Sheriff's Department on her side. Lindsay claims that the assault never took place because she was "at home watching TV" at the time of the supposed incident.

O Rly? Is that why Radar Online broke news this morning that you're on the surveillance video of the Standard Hotel on the exact night and time of said scuffle?

Lindsay! Y U like orange jumpsuits??

This event comes on the heels of Lindsay's last run in with the police as she came off of formal probation for that whole necklace fiasco last year.

Oh, and she still has a hit and run on her hands to deal with.

Any way you look at it, none of this bodes well for Lohan.

Do you think Lindsay's image will ever recover?

Admit it. You love when Rock marries Fashion.

Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill has proposed to model girlfiend Martha PattersonE! Online reports that Jared popped the question near his home in Nashville, TN with a 4 carat diamond ring.

Oh, I mean this 4 carat diamond ring:

Blue Ivy Carter Gets An iPod

sylvs May 02, 2012

Move over, there's a new music diva in town!

When Blue Ivy Carter, daughter of Jay-Z and Beyonce, made her world debut the couple's friends had the gifts rolling in. Gwyneth Paltrow picked up a $1,029 stoller for her, for instance.

Yet one gift stands out among anything you could give a baby girl: her first iPod.This gift came from The Roots drummer Questlove.

So what exactly did it come with?

How about roughly 4,000 songs picked especially just for Blue which will be re-tweaked every Christmas to be deemed "the gift that keeps on giving", reports New York's Daily News. And what does dad think about the gift? "Jay loves it" says Questlove.

Who wouldn't?

What do you think about Blue's latest gift?
Too young? Too much? Too awesome?

7 Movies To Watch This Summer

sylvs May 01, 2012

With summer approaching, the box office is gearing up for smash after smash as more trailers, character photos, and teasers ease their way out. With so many amazing movies coming out this summer, take a look at some of the most highly anticipated upcoming flicks.

Here are 7 Movies to Watch This Summer:

The Dark Knight Rises - In theaters June 20th

Director: Christopher Nolan

Starring: Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Liam Neeson, Anne Hathaway, Michael Cane, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman, and Gary Oldman.

I have a feeling that pretty much everyone is looking forward to seeing this follow-up to 2008's The Dark Knight, which takes place 8 years after where we left on in the previous film. Bane (Hardy) emerges as the new face of terror in Gotham as Batman (Bale) returns from the cave to protect the city that now hates him.


The Avengers - In Theaters May 4th

Directed by: Joss Whedon

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeremy Renner, and Tom Hiddleston.

This is not just another superhero movie, this is the superhero movie! Fury (Jackson) brings together a massive ensemble of super humans - Iron Man (Downey Jr.), Captain America (Evans), The Hulk (Ruffalo), and others - to do one task, stop Loki (Hiddleston) and his crew from plotting disaster.


Rock of Ages - In theaters June 15th

Director: Adam Shankman

Starring: Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Diego Boneta, and Alec Baldwin.

Hands down, this has got to be one of the funniest films coming out this year. A rock comedy musical that takes place in 1987 with Cruise playing Stacee Jaxx? Yes please!


Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter - In theaters June 22nd

Directed by: Timur Bekmambetov

Starring: Dominic Cooper, Rufus Sewell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Benjamin Walker.

President Abraham Lincoln finds out that Vampires are planning attacks to take over, so he sets off to pwn them all.

Snow White and the Huntsman - In theaters June 1st

Directed by: Ruper Sanders

Starring: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth.

The Hunstman (Hemsworth) is ordered to take Snow White (Stewart) into the woods to kill her at the orders of Queen Ravenna (Theron), but decideds to help Snow White instead so that they may overthrow the evil queen.

10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Kelly Clarkson

sylvs Apr 24, 2012

When I think about Kelly Clarkson, I cannot help but envision Ultimate Girl Power. I mean, this is "Miss Independent." The singer that showed us not everyone wants to be a size 0. The woman who taught us that it doesn't mean we're lonely when we're alone.

I mean, Kelly-friggin-Clarkson! The little girl from Texas who auditioned for some show called American Idol back in 2002, won, and went on to go 5 times platinum?

I joke. I joke. Like you don't know who Kelly Clarkson is - but here are 10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Her:

1.  Kelly's hit song 'Miss Independent' was co-written by Christina Aguilera.









2. Every year, she celebrates her birthday with Red Velvet cake. Her fave, obvs.







3. Kelly hopes to one day do a song with The Black Eyed Peas and/or Chris Brown.








4. Kelly is one of 9 siblings - 1 blood brother, 1 blood sister, 2 half brothers, and 5 step brothers and sisters.









5. Kelly had the honor of performing 'Ave Maria' for Pope Benedict XVI in New York.










6. She wears a retainer.







7. She owns a 60-acre animal rescue ranch in Texas.








8. Call her OCD if you like, but she is obsessed with even nubers.
(The reasoning behind this, I do not know, but it could have something to do with #4 on this list.... I joke again!)








9. Another hit single of Kelly's, 'Breakaway', was co-written by Avril Lavigne.








10. She is currently working on writing a Broadway musical.



Happy Birthday Kelly Clarkson! Now go have some Red Velvet cake girl!


Gotye Slams Glee Cover Of 'Somebody That I Used to Know'

sylvs Apr 23, 2012

As far as the world of Gleeks goes, the moment where Darren Criss (Blaine) and actor Matt Bomer (who played Blaine's brother, Cooper) busted into a duet cover of Australian singer Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" on a recent episode of GLEE was glorious!

...but apparently things are not so outside of Gleekville.

Wally de Backer, otherwise known as Gotye, had some pretty harsh reviews for both Criss and Bomer. The Daily Mail sat down with the original and this is what he had to say about the GLEE rendition of his song:

"They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals but the vocals were that pop Glee style, ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense. Like it's playing to you from a cardboard box."


He also went on to remark that the cover "made it sound dinky and wrong."

In case you missed it, here is the GLEE cover:

and here is original Goyte's official music video version:

What did you think of the GLEE performance?

Was it better, worse, or comprable to the original?


I actually loved it, sorry Gotye.

Sylvs Salutes: Classic Red Lipstick

sylvs Apr 16, 2012


Though I am not positive, I am pretty sure that red lipstick has been hand-in-hand with fashion since the begining of time.

Not only have the two been intertwined in glorious fashion matramony back in the bombshell years of Marilyn Monroe, but the love afair continues to this very day.
Besides, when is a red pout not completely chic?


Silver screen siren Bette Davis has been captivating audiences with her own red hot lips (and gorgeous eyes of course) since the 1930's and still stands amongst the Titans of Rouge Titilation.


Not to mention, is there any way possible to imagine Vivienne Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind without that rose tinted smirk? Yeah, I didn'tt think so either.


Hollywood Good Girl Audrey Hepburn even used the power of red in her own signature chic way. A true icon for those who prefer "class" over "trash".


So which of today's Hollywood fashion elite continue to carry the torch, and carry it with amazing style and grace?

Gwen Stefani

I bet you didn't see this one coming.
Rock and Fashion Queen Gwen Stefani has been strutting around in her signature red lipstick since high school and we still love, love, love it! Her name is most definitely the first that comes to mind when someone mentions a red kisser. (Or talent. Or amazingness. Or OMG she's gorgeous!)


Christina Aguilera

The former Miss. Dirrty, Christina Aguilera has been painting her pout rouge for quite some time now, and my oh my does it look fantastic on her. From innocent pop singer, to X-Tina, to The Voice, Christina has been a fashion chameleon - all the while keeping those scarlet stained lips.


Scarlett Johansson

Speaking of "scarlet", the ever amazing Scarlett Johansson knows how to stay sexy chic with a little help from her own name.


Angelina Jolie

When it comes to using red for seduction, Angelina Jolie has the rules down pat. As a natural bare-lipped beauty, Angie knows that all you need is a touch of red and a whole lot of confidence to acheive anything.


Dita Von Teese

Bombshell? It's more like nuclear fallout when Miss Dita Von Teese makes an appearance with her signature red hues. If anyone is a displaced 40's pinup girl, it's Dita.


These woman already own the Classic Red Lipstick scene, but who among the younger generation of celebrities seem to have the most potential to join the ranks?



Anne Hathaway

How about this one for starters? Anne Hathaway is well on her way to becoming Rouge Royalty and may end up in it's Hall of Fame by winning us over with her dark locks, porcelain skin, and ruby red lipstick!


Keira Knightley

She may be a talented actress and stunningly beautiful, but nothing says sexy quite like Keira Knightley donning a red pout. Add some pin curls (a la Atonement) and Keira makes for an instant sultry siren.


Dakota Fanning

She used to be "cute". She used to look "sweet". She used to make us say "Awww!". Though, now that Dakota Fanning is all grown up, we can raplce those three with "glamorous", "sexy", and "ooo la la!". Usually when Kota touches anything it turns to magic, but with a touch of red on her lips, she turns to divine.


Emma Stone

Whether her locks are red, blonde, or brown, actress Emma Stone always dazzles with red lips. You didn't hear this from me, but I think she was born with it on!


Kristen Stewart

A true natural beauty with pure natural talent, Kristen Stewart has been making quite a huge name for herself with all of the Twilight mania. The tomboy, the girl next door, the bombshell. The fact that Kristin can transcend cozy to chic fashion is phenomenal. When you add red lip stain, I think she becomes unstoppable.


Who is your favorite red lipstick rocking celebrity?

What is you favorite brand and shade of red lip stick?
