VIDEO: Virgin America’s New Safety Information Video Will Make You Want To Get Up And Dance (In The Sky)!
Virgin America never ceases to amaze us… and if you’ve ever flown the airline, you’re probably nodding in agreement.
There’s a number of different reasons why I love flying Virgin. For coast-to-coast travel in the U.S., Virgin America is an ferociously fabulous experience (unlike most airlines), featuring purple LED lights and leather seats throughout the cabin, outlets for charging below every seat, oh — and their in-flight entertainment system totally trumps all: you can not only order food and drink right from your seat, but you can also chat with fellow passengers.
The airline made waves in the industry in 2007 when it became the first U.S. airline to feature a cheeky safety video across its fleet (an animated cult classic). Now, they’re taking it to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL, enlisting one of Hollywood’s BLOCKBUSTER film directors Jon M. Chu (from ‘Step Up 2& 3’, ‘GI Joe: Retaliation’ and more), “American Idol” season 9 alum, Todrick Hall, who created the music & lyrics for the video, and “So You Think You Can Dance” stars Cyrus Spencer, Sasha Mallory, Phillip Chbeeb and Marko Germar.
For more on the video and more info on the chance to be cast in a future version of the safety video, keep reading…
Country music superstar Carrie Underwood is opening up about everything from grappling with all that comes with fame and her personality to her marriage with husband Mike Fisher and what she wrote about herself in her high school yearbook, in the June issue of Marie Claire’s (on stands May 21st).
On her personality: “I’m not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family. Technically I have siblings but they are quite a bit older than me – I was the accident – so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean…I’m not a sociopath.”
On anxiety: “At the beginning of my career, I used to have panic attacks. People were touching me, screaming – it made me really nervous. In public, I just get nervous. It’s a physical reaction, feeling like the walls are closing in. The fans are great. It’s not their fault. I don’t ever want to come across as ungrateful. But on my end, it is hard for me to process. Because I am still just me.”
On awkward moments: “My husband calls me the queen of awkward moments. Anything that can be made awkward, I will make it awkward.”
What she wrote in her high school yearbook: “You were supposed to say what you would be doing in 10 years, and I said, ‘I will be rich, famous, and married to a hot guy.’ I guess I should have added a few more things.”
On having kids: “I don’t feel old enough to have kids. I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?”
I feel like such a proud big brother!!!!
My long time friend Jessica Sanchez has finally premiered her DEBUT single “Tonight” featuring 3x GRAMMY Award winning singer Ne-Yo! The power duo also performed the club banger on Thursday night’s episode of “American Idol.”

It’s that “most wonderful time of the year” time of year and… you’re procrastinating sorting out your holiday gifts, aren’t you? And who doesn’t have those one or two people who are really, really difficult to shop for?! I know I do.
So that is why I am sooooooo thrilled to be an American Express ambassador for their #PointsForPresents Holiday program this year! Over the last few weeks I have been digging through their extensive catalog of goodies and I’ve compiled a few of my faves to help you — my fabulous and in-the-know readers — pick out some seriously stellar gifts (all shoppable using American Express Membership Rewards) that seriously everyone will love!
American Express helps ease the pain of shopping by allowing their Cardmembers to earn and use Membership Rewards points. Surely you already know you can earn points for almost every purchase you make (and with no expiration date)… But — did you know you can use your points on a wide variety of gift cards, retail purchases, travel and entertainment events? Aha!

Phillip Phillips, winner of American Idol Season 11, was presented with a Gold Record for his first single “Home.” When receiving the award, given to him in Los Angeles, Phillips exclaimed, “Wow! I can’t believe this!”
Believe it, Phillip! You deserve it!
Phillips was given the award by his fellow season 11 contestant Colton Dixon at the Nokia Theater on July 23rd. The surprise came while the contestants were touring on their American Idol LIVE! Tour.
Not only did Phillip’s single become gold, but it also shattered an American Idol record by selling over 278,000 downloads in its first week released! Wow! I can’t wait to see what Phillip will do next!
