Sadly, yesterday the world bid goodbye to music legend Donna Summer.

Branded the Queen of Disco, Summer reigned over charts at a time where very few women, especially those of color, earned the title ‘sex symbol’ while simultaneously maintaining a level of class that restrained her sexuality from defining her image…

If the last year has taught us anything about Rihanna, it is this:

1. She loves Italian food and 2. She seems to be allergic to garments (or too much of them).

For last night, in what is starting to become a habit, the model dined at  Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi with best friend Melissa, in Santa Monica.

This,weeks before she launches her Project Runway type TV show in the UK, by way of Sky Living.

As reported here (and confirmed today), Tia Mowry (Melanie) and Pooch Hall (Derwin) of the hit BET sitcom ‘The Game’ have announced their departure from the beloved show on the heels of its renewal for a season 6.  Shocking fans and followers of the show alike, Mowry has made her rounds earlier today to give insight into her decision to leave the show.

Her co-stars have been mums on the topic…until now.  Wendy Racquel Robinson, who portrays the slick tongued ‘momager’ Tasha Mack, gives her two cents on Tia and Pooch’s unexpected exits.  Press play above to get the skinny…

Although just gracing their April 2012 cover, it looks like Vogue magazine can’t get enough of ‘Enough’ actress/singer Jennifer Lopez.  Now guesting the mag’s June 2012 issue, the full spread of her earlier shoot with famed photographer Mario Testino is unveiled.  As ever, it’s safe to say the 42-year-old, mother-of-two is still turning heads like nobody’s business.

Get into the shots below (source):

Aside from making it rain on these heauxs on the fashion tip, Lopez, as revealed yesterday, is sitting pretty atop Forbes’ list of most powerful celebrities (with over $50 million earned in the last year alone).  Her love may not cost a thing, but everything else (it seems) is gonna cost a pretty penny.

Coming as a shocking announcement, Season 11 ‘American Idol’ frontrunner Joshua Ledet was given the axe moments ago after receiving the lowest number of votes, as revealed by tonight’s episode of the hit reality talent show.  Branded the ‘male Fantasia’ for his throaty growls, spirited melisma, and “church” stylings, the young vocalist was a shoo-in to win.  Now, Ledet’s dismissal (after a whopping 90 million votes) leaves powerhouse teen Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips to duke it out for the ultimate prize in next week’s finale.

Boasting performances from Jason Derulo, Rihanna, and more, next week’s finale is shaping up to be a MUST SEE!  Until then, we will press play on some of Ledet’s awesome performances from week’s past.  Here’s wishing him the best:

Quite unfortunately, ‘Saved By The Bell‘s Lark Voorhies came under scrutiny when she returned to the public eye- by way of Yahoo- looking a little worse for wear.

After sparking a series of Twitter trending topics related to what many saw as a dramatic change in her face, the ‘hype’ soon died down- but prompted Lark’s stylist to unveil the above snap.

On the set of the new movie ‘Jessica’s Journey‘, Lark proved her ‘aesthetic mishap’ was down to a botched make up job and not cosmetic surgery as many had previously feared.

What a difference a week can make eh?

Last month, Tyra Banks shocked fans of hit show ‘America’s Next Top Model’ when she axed long time cast mates Jay Emmanuel, Nigel Barker and Ms.Jay.

Well today, the show’s network ‘The CW’ confirmed the identities of their replacements:

Rob Evans (Male Model)

Johnny Wujek (Fashion Stylist)

Both men will join Banks and existing judge Kelly Cutrone on the show’s next season.

Wujek is most recognized for his work with Katy Perry– responsible for much of her styling during her ‘Teenage Dream’ era while Rob is a highly respected runway model, most noted for his work with fashion house Givenchy.

When your vocal skill is on par with that of a tongueless mime, one must do what one has to do to keep one’s fans interested- at any cost.

Take Rihanna for example- with her latest movie ‘Battleship’ slipping and sliding on Box Office tallies worldwide and her latest LP ‘Talk That Talk’ yet to live up to its hype commercially, she turns to Esquire to do just what she does best.

Getting naked.

Snapped by Melissa Forde back in January, Riri posed for the publication’s July edition, sporting Rita Ora’s look and as per usual-not enough clothing.

Cop a gander at Ke$ha, a vision of ‘cleanliness’ at the BMI Pop Awards in California last night.

Picking up two awards, the Pop sensation looked a far cry from the ‘get up and go’ girl she rose to fame as- dishing on her  long awaited new LP.

On the project, she confessed:

I just want to capture some of the true essence of what rock and roll is, and that’s just irreverence and sexiness and fun and not giving a f**k’

American Idol’s latest season draws to a close next week. And with the still-revered title in reaching distance, favourites Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet continue to justify their incredible buzz.

Yesterday’s episode saw both slam dunk their performances. See what we mean above with Sanchez’s performance of Mariah Carey‘s ‘My All’ and Ledet’s rendition of Mary J. Blige‘s classic ‘No More Drama’ below…

Yes, yes, and yes! Either would make credible winners.

Who do you think should clench the title, at this point?
