The blingy, “naked” Michael Kors jumpsuit Jennifer Lopez wore for the American Idol finale last night has me wondering what happened to Jenny from the Block. There was a point when her fashion was interesting, stylish and sometimes even flattering. While there’s nothing wrong with the fit of her bedazzled jumpsuit, there is everything wrong with this train wreck of design elements. Bling is good. “Naked” fabric is good and there might even be a few people who think jumpsuits are good. But all together? I just don’t know. The top part says, “sweetness” and the bottom part says, “joe boxer sweatpants”. This is not really one of her better looks and given the odd assortment of Jennifer Lopez’s recent dubious fashion choices I am afraid of what ideas she has for taking the jumpsuit to the next level.
But don’t fear; we’ll be back Memorial Day weekend to help usher in the summer movie season! Until then be sure to check out our archives. See you in a couple of weeks!
We mentioned Ashley Judd’s new memoir last week, and the possible familial smackdown that could follow in the wake of her revelations, as well as Wynonna and Naomi’s take on it in their miniseries that’s about to air. But Complex magazine caught an except of the book that is pissing some folks off:

Even his critical missteps, such as Power were still meaningful explorations worthy of inclusion in his oeuvre. My favorite Lumet films, besides The Wiz are Serpico and The Verdict. Read more…
Last week I mentioned that Hugh Hefner sure likes to show up in the audience of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars a lot, and now I know why The Hef was there: to court Karina Smirnoff and convince her to pose for Playboy. (Or more accurately, as an act of good faith to seal a deal already made with her, since magazines go to print months in advance.) The news was announced yesterday via his Twitter….which makes it either totally accurate or totally a joke.
Netflix might be getting assaulted on a couple fronts by haters, prognosticators of doom and the occasional tech blogger, but who can talk eventual demise with all these pre-Brosnan Bond titles available for instant viewing! Whether you’re a Connery purist, Team Dalton, Georgie’s girl or want Moore Moore Moore, there’s plenty of Bond for you. Well except I didn’t mention any Connery titles. Read more…
Ashley Judd has published a memoir, spilling all the secrets of her childhood, including bearing witness to some troublesome times in the Judd home. I know all this because Yahoo had her name as a trending topic in their news section because her make-up looked bad around the eyes at a book signing. I’m less concerned with Ashley Judd’s (now ex-) makeup designer forgetting to blend her powder than I am this tidbit of information buried at the bottom of the Reuters article making the rounds:
