Glee- Episode 2 Britney/Brittany

If you weren’t at home last night or looking on Hulu right now while you're at work to look at the Britney episode of Glee… then I don’t know what’s wrong with you. Yes I do know that I did not blog last week’s episode, don’t judge me.
Apparently Kurt has a Britney page on facebook with the people wanting them to perform a Britney song at Homecoming. Mr. Schuester says no and instead he wants some good old Christopher Cross to be performed. Brittany (the blond cheerleader and my favorite) objected because her name is actually Brittany S. Pierce. “Brittany S. Pierce. I’ve lived my entire life in Britney Spears’s shadow.”

In this episode, we get to meet Emma’s new boyfriend played by the oh so hunky John Stamos, Dentist Carl.  He just happens to be a dentist and he gets invited to Mr. Schuster’s class to teach the kids about dental hygiene (or something like that, I never got why he was invited, any hoo…) Dentist Carl gives the kids these tablets to show where the tartar is showing up on their teeth. Brittany, Artie and Rachel (shock!) teeth turn bright blue.  This leads to Brittany going to the dentist and getting put under some gas and she then performs “I’m a Slave 4 U.”  Now if you don’t know the actress that plays Brittany, Heather Morris, she once was a backup dancer for Beyonce on tour and on some live performances, so you know she can dance.
Santana accompanies Brittany to the dentist the next day for some laughing gas action and they perform “Me Against the Music.” Seeing these two play off each other is awesome

Rachel does “Baby… One More Time” in which she kinda over sings… but she looks exactly like Britney in the video, down to the moves, everything.  Mostly everyone likes the slutty Rachel
The best line of the night comes for Brittany after changing her mind about performing Britney songs, “I would just like to say that from now on I demand to have every solo in glee club. I sing and dance better than her … I'm more talented than all of you. It's Britney. Bitch.” PRICELESS
Artie performs “Stronger” as a flip to ex girlfriend Tina.  Mr. Schuester also shows his struggle with Emma and Carl’s relationship…
So Mr.Schuster decides to perform a Britney song at the homecoming show, but he is also gonna perform in it. The song is “Toxic” and they turn that song into a sex obsessed, Fosse-esque routine and I still don’t know how I feel about it… After the sex riot that happens as a result of this song, Sue gives us this line, “Not sure if you heard, William, but my spinal column was ruptured in a sex riot,”
Then Rachel sings a Paramore song, “The Only Exception,” to Finn.
That’s about it.
It was a pretty good episode. I’m so happy that they put the spotlight on Heather Morris cause that girl is an AWESOME dancer.

Gossip Girl---- “The Undergraduate”

Gossip Girl---- “The Undergraduate”
Ok… so sorry about last week’s lack of Gossip Girl review. Trust and believe I wanted to post something, but you know how that goes.
The episode started off with the “Gossip Girl” site being down. Some wondered if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but if you are a true fan of the show then you know Gossip Girl still gets all the good info about what’s going down.
Apparently there is this “club”, Hamilton House, at Columbia that all the most important chicks are trying to get into. This includes Blair and Serena.  When the dynamic duo show up to get a key (which is a necklace) some of their old rivals are there to greet them. Also in the mix is Juliet (Nate’s new crush) who happens to be the key master. Of course there is one key and everyone thought the key would automatically go to Serena. Um no, it goes to Blair. Yall know this Juliet chick is up to something…

Dan is playing single dad and Vanessa decides to move in to help him out with Milo. Rufus knows that Milo isn’t his grandson and has Dan do a paternity test. For those who have never seen a Gossip Girl concerning Georgina, the baby isn’t Dan’s (DUH). Georgina comes back from her “spa” week (which really a trip to the beach) and takes Milo from Dan and gives him some sob Georgina story about why she did it (Mobsters).

Eric is back on the scene and he finds out that Chuck is gonna be lurking back around New York, so he decides to go to Rufus and snitch. Chuck in the past had tried to get his freak on with Jenny before and now Rufus know. You know who else knows about that, Lily. She said not to worry, and you know she runs that house. Chuck hasn’t come clean about his past to new chick, Eva, but slowly but surely it does, but she still sticks around.

Back to Blair and Serena… Well Juliet is trying to pit Blair and Serena against each other and it seems like its working.  What Juliet forgets that this is a secret society in which past members have a say in who gets in. Yall all know that Lily was a past member… There is even a mock fight that is staged between Blair and Serena which is awesome. The truth comes out and Juliet is kicked out.
Best line of the night....
"Once men have tasted caviar, it baffles me how they settle for catfish". (Blair on Juliette & Nate)
i love me some Blair.
can't wait for next weeks

Glee... and the Britney Episode

There was going to be a Glee update blog last week, but for some reason it didn’t happen so please forgive me. I am so sure that I will not happen this weekend... because it is the Britney Episode.  I don't think people understand how great this is. Ok first off, it’s Britney... Second it’s going to have my favorite character whose name happens to be Brittany (the blond cheerleader) and she will be showing off her most FIERCE dancing skills (she was a backup dancer for Beyonce on tour)

Glee-- The Britney Episode

Lindsay Lohan Update

I like the red hair so much better
Ok we all knew it was coming, more jail time for Miss Lohan. A couple of days ago Lindsay tweeted that she had failed her drug test and that she knew she had a problem.  Now if this was a normal, un-celeb, we would have been in jail an hour after this drug test. Not Lindsay... countless websites and news shows showed Lindsay strolling on Robinson Blvd in L.A. shopping like nothing was going to even happen to her.  Then on Friday, Lindsay strolled into the court house rockin 6 inch Louboutins that cost $1395 dollars. Yes, dollars. Lindsay strolled on in like it was nothing and then it happened, she was sentenced to another 30 days in jail. Now the key word of that last sentence... was... because the judge decieded to overturn his ruling and Lindsay was released on $300,000 bond. Yes, dollars again. It is rumored that she will go back to rehab... but we all see how that turned out the last time....

Willow Smith - "Whip My Hair" Official Choreography

Willow Smith - "Whip My Hair" Official Choreography

Im teachin myself this TONIGHT!
and this song is pretty awesome

Lindsay Lohan--- You must really like jail.....

You must like jail?
I thought I was tired last night as I was reading through my tweets last night…

“Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.”
This tweet is from none other than Lindsey Lohan herself. Um, excuse me? How long have you been out of rehab? Child what has happened to you? Let’s go back and take a look at her history…
Lindsey got her start in acting and modeling early on. Her first role was in the remake of The Parent Trap and after that she started doing a few movies other movies which helped boost her popularity, Freaky Friday, Mean Girls, and Herbie: Fully Loaded. Critics praised Lindsey for some of her movie role, even comparing her to Jodie Foster (a child actress who successfully made the transition to Academy Award winning actress.) Also a few albums were thrown in the mix, I’m sure you can find them on for 99 cents.
Around the time when Lindsey turned 18, things started to go downhill with multiple DUI arrests, movies that flopped and bad relationships. Lindsey has been in and out of rehab multiple times for multiple issues.  With every entrance into a rehab facility, one always thinks that she will come out better than ever, but it never happens. Things actually get worse.

In July 2010, a judge sentences Lindsey Lohan to 90 days in jail. After Lindsey is released from jail, she is to go straight to a rehab facility. Now I know what you are thinking, she has been to rehab before and it didn’t work and I was thinking the same thing too. Well unlike the other rehabs she went to (which are like day spas) this one would be different and help her kick her drug habit. Some of yall are like me and are actually rooting for her.  Well… because of overcrowding, Lindsey’s jail time is reduced to only 14 days, but she is still sent straight to rehab. Lindsey was released from rehab only 24 days into the program….She was ordered to submit to random drug and alcohol screenings and attend psychotherapy and behavior therapy twice a week, as well as five 12-step sessions a week.  Any failure to attend the sessions or to pass the drug tests could result in a 30-day jail sentence.
Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future”
Listen Lindsey, you need to get your shit together. All that money you have spending while living in hotels, buying expensive cars and traveling to places where you don’t need to go is all gonna run out soon. The only skills that you have is acting skills and honey last time I checked you are uninsurable and therefore no one wants to hire you. Lindsey, stop blaming your dad and stop listening to your mom. You are an adult who needs to make her own decisions in life about where you are going to next. I still believe that you can make a comeback. Maybe you need to talk to someone like Amy Winehouse or Robert Downey Jr. or someone like that.

Gossip Girl---- "Bells Du Jour"

Ok I know some of yall out there are closet Gossip Girl fans, you aint gotta hide your guilty pleasure here on the pages of Pop Culture Fashionista.  I absolutely love, love that show. If not for the fashion, then for the drama (and you know I love other folks drama.)  Well this season premiere was everything you ever wanted and more.

So much going on… Blair (my fave person on the show) and Serena are living it up in Paris doing what they do best, shopping and chatting up the lovely French boys. Blair and Serena are enjoying the time they are spending together in Paris, but Blair lets Serena know that she is happy that she will be at Brown University in the fall and not having to live in the “Serena shadow.”  What Blair doesn’t know that Serena was accepted to Columbia University (Blair was accepted last season.) It seems like Blair is having such a hard time looking for love when Chuck Bass is still in her mind and heart, but while standing in front of her favorite painting, Blair runs into someone who she thinks is her knight in shining armor, but is he?
Back in the states, Lilly and Rufus come back home from traveling and Rufus decides to give Dan a ring. Well if you didn’t see what happened at the end of last season… Georgina is knocked up and Dan *rips open envelope Maury style* is the father.  Well that’s what Georgina says…
Nate is whoring it up with Chuck’s little black book. He meets a girl who tried to play hard to get, but they run into each other again at an event Lily is throwing… more on that later
Vanessa shows up to Dan’s apartment with her hair still looking like a bad wig and she finds out the big secret Dan had been hiding and why he was AWOL for the summer.
Lilly is worried about Chuck and rightfully so… so she starts doing some investigating. She looks into his banking records and find out he is doing some un-Chuck like activities, like traveling on a train and in coach no less… Lilly starts to think that something is wrong…

Blair and Serena go on a double date with the guy she meets in the museum. She finds out that he is a driver for a prince, and not the actual prince. This changes her attitude on the whole date. She starts to treat him differently and pays more attention to the prince, who happens to be with Serena. Blair then gets a phone call from her mother who tells Blair that Serena is now going to Columbia (Lilly told her.) Blair runs outside and Serena follows, and they have a moment.  When I say moment, I mean Blair pushes Serena into a fountain.  Blair goes back inside… blah blah blah… The guy is actually a prince. Wanted to find out if Blair liked him for him and not because he was a prince.
Blair goes back to the hotel and finds Serena packing to go back home and Blair pours out her heart to Serena about missing Chuck and living under the Serena shadow. They make up, again.
Chuck is still alive. Shacking with a chick who doesn’t know he is Chuck Bass, and all the charges that were showing up, was actually his…
No Jenny and her dark makeup this episode.

Technology Today! Good or Bad??

So thankfully we are blessed with numerous types of technology. I know I would almost go crazy if I didn't have my phone. If I couldn't text, talk, check my email and check my social accounts it would become irritating. Sometimes and I know I am not the only one who feels this way but with all the new technology, it's like people don't know how to personally communicate. I think if you take away people's phones they would almost become mute. Sometimes a nice conversation is a lot better than texting. So much more can be said on the phone and you can have a better understanding actually hearing someones voice. I understand that there is a time and place for everything and at appropriate times, it's better to text. Personally, I prefer to hear someones voice.
Secondly, I HATE, HATE, HATE to read a message and not understand a damn thing. When I read a message, I don't want to have to decode it before I read it. It's cool to short hand in text messages but when you send someone a message and you are making up words, using numbers instead of letters tells me one thing... you can't spell. It would take more time to think oh im going to use the #3, 5 or 2 instead of "e" or "s". The sad part young children, preteens, can't spell small words and feel like they can hide behind texting and use it as an excuse. What happens, when these same people go to try to get a job and they write the same way they text?? I'll tell you.. you are not getting hired! Then you are looking crazy saying ooh they are just being racist. FYI it's not your race it's your ignorance that speaks for you.

The last season of Oprah...

It's the last season of Oprah and you already know she is going out with a bang...

Oprah gives away....

Peoples heads will explode

the MTV VMA's

As I said a few blogs back, id write about the VMA’s that came on last night. After last year’s Kanye/Taylor incident, there was sure to be either total awesomeness or total wack. It was neither, it was a complete and utter clusterf*ck. The night started off awesome, an episode of Jersey Shore.
Yes I know I said I would never watch this show, but I’m hooked! I’m only 3 episodes in and I’ve got favorites already… but that’s another blog for another time. Then MTV decided on doing a white carpet instead of a red carpet. How original MTV, now please go back to playing just videos. I should have known that the evening was going to go down the toilet with the introduction of Drake.
I betta find yo lovin...
 Ok, I will admit, Drake is growing on me but I can only see Degrassi High every time I look at him! There were many others that rolled onto the white carpet and for the life of me I cannot remember who they are. The only reason behind my memory loss is the one performance they had on the white carpet, Nicki Minaj with Will.I.Am.
This performance was a complete mess. First off, she was lip syncin, what rapper does that? I can understand if there was some serious dancing going on stage, but there wasn’t. I can’t go in too deep cause there will a separate blog about this.

The show started with Eminem and it was a decent performance. Ri Ri came on stage and sang her part for the “Love the way you Lie” song. I just wish she wouldn’t have put on that red wig… it was tooooo much. There were a lot of other performances that I really just don’t remember cause they didn’t stand out too much. It was a very dull show. Justin Beiber came out and did his thing.
He dances like a white Usher and it shows in all his moves. Then Usher came on. Awesome as usual. Taylor Swift came on and sang a new, untitled song which if you listen to the lyrics, it sounds like she hasn’t gotten over the Kanye incident. Lord, help her.

Oh and let me interrupt here... Lady Gaga was there... She changed 3 times. The last outfit was a meat dress. I shit you not.

There were some more people… um…yea… and then, there was Kanye. Dressed in all red, he also did an untitled song that will most likely be on the new album and it was awesome. "Let's have a toast for the douche bag, Let's have a toast for the scumbag...every one of them I know." Love him or hate him, he knows what to do to get people to talk and watch everything he is doing.

So that’s my MTV VMA’s wrap up. It was wack and I’m pissed that I wasted my time on this bull. The only good thing that came out of this was hanging out with Ashley.

So, i dont know if ill ever do this again. Well... there is a BET awards show coming up... you know those are DRAMA!

just ugh...

is she bout to ice skate?

Jesus take the wheel....You have to watch this!

This was emailed to me from Ashley J. I don't know what else to say about it... just watch.
Woman raises and breast feeds motherless calf

I couldnt even finish watching the whole thing...
Im speechless cause who found out about this...?

A change is gonna come for America’s Next Top Model!

A change is gonna come for America’s Next Top Model!

America’s Next Top Model is gearing up for its 15th season and from the looks of things, a big change is coming. One of the changes is that the winner will not appear in the pages of Seventeen magazines anymore, they will grace the pages of Vogue Italia and Beauty in Vogue. This is a huge step up for the next winner. Another change is the guest judges that will be alongside Andre Leon Talley and Nigel Barker. Diane Von Furstenberg, Roberto Cavalli, and Zac Posen will be along for the ride. With these changes, ANTM is hoping that critics will be less harsh on saying how gimmicky the show is and focus on creating and discovering a high fashion top model.

My letter to Paris Hilton

Dear Paris Hilton,

and wow...

the first mugshot.
Honey, I know for you, life aint been no crystal stair. You come from an extremely rich family and you don’t have to worry about the simple things in life, and I know it’s hard. The Hilton name hasn’t been this popular since Nicky Hilton married Elizabeth Taylor. You resort to doing drugs and because you are so rich, you can afford to have people take the fall for you. Well sista, this time it aint going down like that. For some of the readers, you might have forgotten the other incidences of Ms. Hilton getting in trouble. How can we all forget the arrest for drunk driving out in Los Angeles? Ahh… that had to be a highlight in the Hilton family name. That mug shot was PRICELESS and when they had to send you back to jail and you were crying, unforgettable. You were doing pretty well for awhile doing clothing lines, putting out perfumes and getting paid to go out. You had “calmed down.” Well earlier this year things started to change. During the World Cup in South Africa, Ms. Hilton was arrested for smoking marijuana. The charges were dropped after a “friend” admitted that she was really the one who had the drugs. You could not pay me enough money in this world to take the blame for some drugs in a foreign country. I watched Brokedown Palace; I saw what they do to people in jail. I also know none of my friends would take the blame either. On August 28th, Paris was arrested for possession of cocaine. The cocaine fell out of her purse after a police officer had to escort her to a bathroom after getting pulled over. The reasons why Paris and her boyfriend were pulled over because of the strong marijuana smell coming from her SUV. Wonder what the reason was for her having the drugs? Paris simply stated that the purse was not hers and the drugs didn’t belong to her. GTFO! Also found in her purse was medication to help her wheezing and zig zags.
 Now let me just stop here and inform some people because some of yall don’t know what zig zags are. They are rolling papers, for cigarettes and other substances such as… hmmm… marijuana. I’m just sayin… Paris is now learning that there are consequences to your actions. First, her boyfriend (who was also arrested for drunk driving) lost his job working for Wynn hotels. Second, Paris is now being banned from hotels in Las Vegas. So far two hotels have banned her from entering the facilities at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. Well Paris, this is what happens when you make poor choices like these in life. Now I know you won’t get the book thrown at you, you have money, but one day people will get tired of what you do and how you do things and they won’t do business with you or want to be associated with you. Try some A.A. meeting or something honey….

Yours truly,


Serena Williams…Fashion Designer?

It’s that time of year again, time for the U.S. Open and time for some kick ass tennis playing by the Venus and Serena Williams. I have always been a huge tennis fan; even back in the day before the Williams sisters dominated the sport. My faves were Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, John McEnroe and Monica Seles and they always put on one hell of a show. I was really looking forward to see how far the Williams sisters would go until I read that Serena Williams would be out of the U.S. Open due to a foot injury…. What!? Now I know yall are like me and ever since Serena snapped on that line judge at that one tennis match, you are making sure to watch every match just in case of another “incident.” Ok, I’m still gonna watch, but I’m gonna miss Serena. So what does someone with a foot injury do while they are on the mend? They sell their clothes and accessories on Home Shopping Network (HSN). Serena covers all her bases in the world of fashion and its all can be bought at an affordable price. From shoes, dresses, jeans, jewelry and purses. Some of my favorite items are the Serena Signature Statement My One-of-a-Kind Ruffle Rose Bag, and the Serena Signature Rhinestone Chain & Printed Sexy Top I must admit, some of the clothing doesn’t seem Serena-like. You know what I’m talking about, you have seen some of the outfits she wears on and off the court. Maybe just a bit too frumpy for my tastes, but hey that’s just me. Maybe she will put more into her next line. Serena has been on HSN a few times already and it shows that a lot of people out there like what she is giving them. I say keep up the good work sister.

Famous $25 dress

Drum roll please and a round of applause goes to …. Drew Barrymore for wearing the $25 (from a vintage store in Austin, TX) dress proudly. I absolutely get frustrated when people feel if you are not wearing hundreds of dollars on each sleeve or you’re not covered in name brand clothes from top to both that you don’t have any style. Please don’t get me wrong, designer clothes are awesome but the reality is that not everyone can afford name brand clothes. Many who still can’t afford name brand clothes struggle to buy them only because they feel the need to clone everyone else. I have many friends who can shop at Payless and come out looking fierce. It’s not always about how much you pay for things it all about how you wear something, matching the right items together, and accessorizing. Working with what you have instead of buying more expensive items is important in this culture today, especially the way the economy is. Now I know she was rocking a pair of $760 pair of pumps but she wasn’t afraid to wear a dress that wasn’t equivalent in price. This shows her bold side and I for one like it and wish we would see this more often. Oh and check out the movie trailer "Going the Distance" with our famous Drew in it coming out September 3!
