Madonna loves gay porn star

Who doesn't ?? Gay porn star, Wilfried Knight from Lucas Entertainment, features in Madonna's new video "Sorry." In the video he gets dragged into a van where Madonna's dancers rip off his clothes before she pulls him toward her, puts her foot on his chest and then pushes him away.

This isn't the first time Madonna has worked with gay porn stars. In the 90s she hired former COLT model Tony Ward to appear in her "Cherish" and "Justify My Love" videos as well as in her "Sex" book (which also featured Joey Stefano). Then in 2000, she personally picked Jeff Palmer, Caesar and Jeremy Tucker to dance at her "Music" album release party in L.A.

The Olsens for Badgley Mischka

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen are the new faces for Badgley Mischka's new ad campaign, due in print publications next month. It's the twins' first time promoting a brand other than their own. "We always thought that they had great personal style." said designer Mark Badgley.
I think it's
enough already for using celebrities to model clothes and what were Mark Badgley and James Mischka thinking when they decided to use the Olsens; they're too young for the brand and "personal style"...come on.

Hot Canadian

Nothing is cuter than a guy who is not afraid to show his soft side by singing jazz. Michael Bublé is a good example and the fact that he's Canadian, makes him even hotter.

Quote of the day

" One of the best films I ever saw...I wish that they would take this movie and force these assholes from the religious right, these perverts, these Taliban mother-f-ers, who want to sit there, and tell gay people they can't get married...It shows you how, when gays have to be closeted, how they ruin the lives of women, and families. Everyone goes through hell. "

I want "ipod" at 3 AM

You got it...Apple's midtown Manhattan store will be the first store which will be open 24 hours a day. The store, located in the underground retail plaza of the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue between 58th and 59th Street will also be the first stores to offer customers an iPod Bar.

The 25,000-square-foot store will dwarf Apple's SoHo location and will be capped by a 32-foot glass cube that will stand in front of the building and house the stairs and elevators that will take customers underground to the Apple retail store. The construction of the store will be completed in April, with the store expected to open by the end of May.

These may look like a typical shoes, but they're made from 18th-century leather that was discovered in a shipwreck off Britain's south coast (seriously...). Before it sank, the stash of reindeer hide had been treated with yeast and wood liquor to make it supple, strong, and waterproof, and it's now being lovingly made into shoes by master Brit cobblers New & Lingwood. Hurry up !! only 60 pairs left for $1,580 each. www.newandlingwood.com

" Sorry " or " Pitiful"

" I don't spend time I used to when I was single having a massage or a facial. I do things when it's an emergency - when I look like a man, I have a wax! "

Gwyneth Paltrow told British magazine she doesn't get the same "me-time" as she did since she's married and has a baby. Poor girl...she just know how to irritate people.

"Madge" VS "Mimi"

Mariah, who is nominated for eight Grammys, "really wanted to open the show with her choir-backed rendition of 'We Belong Together,'" source. Madonna, 5-times winner, also wanted to kick off the broadcast; or else she wasn't coming.

Even though Madonna's smash "Confessions on a Dancefloor" wasn't nominated for any Grammys, the producer think her dance extravaganza, featuring the British group Gorillaz, will draw a lot of viewers. We have to wait until tomorrow to see who is the biggest Diva.

From Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn to Lucy Liu and Amber Valletta. Trench Coat has been conquerred Hollywood and fashion industries for more than a century.
It started as a practical weatherproof overcoat. But over the time, the trench has outlasted every trend and won over ever new generation.

The lines are called, whatelse, " Karl Lagerfeld" - designed by a team in New York and "Lagerfeld Collection" - designed by Mr. Lagerfeld in Paris.
