Julianne Hough Premieres “Rock Of Ages” In NYC!
Celebrities, models and even yours truly, Micah Jesse (pictured above with Angela Martini), came out on Wednesday night (June 6) for the New York City premiere of “Rock of Ages“ presented by The Venetian Las Vegas!
The highly anticipated new movie, which is set to hit theaters on June 15, follows a small town girl, played by Julianne Hough, and a city boy, played by Diego Boneta, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. The flick features an all-star cast including Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Malin Akerman, Mary J. Blige and more!
Julianne, who stunned in a black Blue Marine dress and bright blue Giuseppe Zanotti heels, hosted the screening (at Landmark Sunshine Theater) and after party (at Sons of Essex) with director Adam Shankman. Although her busy boyfriend Ryan Seacrest couldn’t come out to support, there was plenty of ”rock and roll” love to go around from celeb pals like John Waters, Padma Lakshmi, Sean Lennon, Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas and his beautiful wife Marisol, and “Smash” star Jaime Cepero.
Can’t. Stop. Singing. “Don’t Stop Believing!” No, seriously, though, don’t stop believing. Always remember MJ‘s quote: “DREAM. BELIEVE. WORK. ACHIEVE.” You can do anything you set your mind to!Read More

Snooki “NEVER Dissed” Jessica Simpson!
Is it a rivalry of celebrity mom-to-bes?
‘Jersey Shore’ meatball and soon-to-be mom Snooki allegedly slammed Jessica Simpson and the amount of weight she has gained during her pregnancy, according to Us Weekly. The magazine claimed that she told them she ”would die if she were [Jessica's] size” and that she is trying to be health conscious.
Snooki took to Twitter to tell her side of the story.
“I NEVER dissed Jessica Simpson you weirdo tabloids, get over it with your ‘pregnant war’ articles,” she wrote. “I love the girl and her hot ass bump.”
With or without Snooki’s approval, Simpson is confident about her baby body. She recently joked with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show, saying that being pregnant has made her ”unstoppable in the bedroom” with fiancé, Eric Johnson.Read More

Jessica Sanchez: “Turn The Beat Around” On American Idol! — VIDEO
The theme of Wednesday night’s “American Idol” show was songs from the year the contestant’s were born…
Although the judges didn’t give her a standing ovation like they did the last two weeks, they still said it was a good performance…and they LOVED her FANCY PANTS! (Which happens to be one of this season’s hottest trends!)
While it may not have been Jessica’s “strongest” performance, according to judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, it’s clear Jessica is still a fan favorite and some are saying she is the clear winner of the competition, and it’s only the Top 12!
Tune into “American Idol” tonight to see if Jessica makes it to the next round!

VIDEO: Jennifer Hudson Talks Being “Sexy” And Her Own “Sasha Fierce”
Jennifer Hudson tells me she’s always considered herself “sexy.”
The one-time “American Idol” reject has since gone on to win countless awards (including a GRAMMY for Best R&B Album and an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in “Dreamgirls”), sold millions of albums, signed on to be the newest celebrity spokesperson for Weight Watchers, and most recently, become an author.
I got the chance to catch up with Jennifer on Tuesday night (Jan 10) in NYC, at a Good Housekeeping magazine event, where the sultry songstress (rocking a dress from Roland Mourat) was promoting her new book, I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down, tracing her 80-pound weight-loss journey.
With a new slim frame, I wondered — does she now consider herself “sexy?” Jennifer assured me that even as a big girl, “I always felt sexy — always — y’all just didn’t know.”
But it isn’t her busty chest or butt or legs she loves the most. “What’s this again?” she asked her publicist, pointing to her glowing neckline. “Your clavicle?” I suggested. “Yes, I’ve always loved that.”
Editor-in-Chief of Good Housekeeping, Rosemary Ellis, hosted the event, and welcomed a surprise visit from record executive Clive Davis, who is credited with giving Jennifer her first record deal and molding her music career into what it is today — a goldmine.

New Years Eve 2012 In Times Square — Micah Jesse Picks Top Pics!
Spending New Years Eve 2012 in the “center of the World” — Times Square — was the coolest thing ever!
It surely gave us (an insane amount of) hope that 2012 is going to be an even better year than 2011, which is hard to believe, but we’re believing it!!
Thanks to our pals at NIVEA, the official sponsor of New Years Eve in Times Square, we were treated as VIP as it gets: all-access passes to The Hard Rock Cafe and the NIVEA Kiss Stage (in the center of Times Square), a one-on-one interview with Kiss Stage hosts Giuliana Rancic and hubby Bill Rancic, and front row viewing to performances by pop sensation Justin Bieber and Carlos Santana, Cee Lo Green, Pitbull and more.
2011 was truly incredible — thanks in part to so many of you that read the blog — and we truly can’t wait to see what 2012 brings!
Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!Read More
