    Beware the Diamond Dogs by Adam Lambert

    My father is a huge Bowie fan, and about the time I first got interested in what he was listening to, he pulled out the Diamond Dogs album. The cover was just so cool and trippy and weird. At that point I was really into Halloween and costumes, and when my dad played me the album, I thought, Oh, it’s a Halloween thing. I was maybe 8 or 9, but I didn’t really start appreciating Bowie for myself until my early twenties, when I was getting into glam rock. A light bulb went off—I wasn’t into drag, I didn’t want to dress like a woman, but I wanted to express my gender and artistic identity differently than the mainstream. Bowie was a key inspiration.

    It was about the androgyny of mixing it up, and that was what was so incredible about his concepts -- he was one of the first rock stars to really push the idea that sexuality was not black and white but an exploration. Later, when he finally made his big American breakthrough in the ’80s working with Nile Rodgers on Let’s Dance, his image shifted to a more masculine sensibility. Considering how far he had pushed it the decade previous, however, it gave his masculinity an edgy and mysterious undercurrent. I actually love Young Americans so much because it was the album where he jumped into Philly soul and it got very funky and rhythmic; to hear someone with his sensibility going to that place is really inspiring."

    David Bowie is an Alien. No, really. We Mean it.

    I've had this idea marinating for a long time. Like, years. I've floated it to various sources and it's been met with reactions that vary from amused to annoyed, but I'm dead serious: I really think David Bowie is an alien. An extraterrestrial. A being from another planet.

    I'm kind of into conspiracy theories. To some degree, many people will entertain one theory or another. I think we can all agree that there was a cover-up involving JFK assassination, that electoral fraud is widespread and that Freemasons run the world. (And, c'mon, Paul is dead, right?) But I'm also pretty interested in lesser known conspiracies. Just a few weeks ago, I got really into researching the "Bill Hicks is now Alex Jones" idea. And don't even get me started on green fireballs and Project Twinkle.

    But this Bowie thing is a different kind of conspiracy theory. And by that I mean that it seems to be a theory supported only by two people in the world: me, and his former wife, Angela Bowie. I'm not sure why this is, because it seems dead obvious to me, but I'm willing to share my findings in the name of scientific research.

    I think this is a case of hiding in plain sight. Since the very beginning of his career, Bowie has presented himself as a space age being from another universe, a star from the stars. There is scarcely a Bowie song or piece of art that does not reference space or aliens: Space Oddity, Starman, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Moonage Daydream, Hallo Spaceboy, Earthling, Life on Mars, Loving the Alien... the list could go on and on. (And if you can show me that "Oh, You Pretty Things!" is about any subject other than the impending extraterrestrial colonization of Earth, then I'm all ears.)

    His newest album, The Next Day, is released today and it continues along this theme of space. When the second single off of the album, "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" was released, I threw my hands up in exasperation. Dude! I get you! I hear you loud and clear, Bowie. You ain't from 'round these parts.

    This kind of overkill involving otherworldly oversaturation is suspicious to me. It's like turning Area 51 into a tourist destination for UFO enthusiasts. If you take something like this and make it so blatant and so cheesy that only a nut job could possibly believe that it's true, then it is automatically unjustifiably discredited.

    One of Bowie's personas, Ziggy Stardust, was represented as an alien who visited Earth in the form of a rock star. In the movie The Man Who Fell to Earth, Bowie played an alien who crash lands on Earth, becomes highly successful and well known and then records messages to his home planet that he hopes will be sent through the radio. Sheesh. Obvious, much?

    Bowie's recent role on Earth is to act as an internationally successful music icon with unprecedented staying power. The job of "rock star" really is the perfect cover for an alien: he can easily influence the masses, any odd or outrageous behavior is expected and he has the ability to freely spread his alien seed among unsuspicious females. (Groupies.) (I CANNOT)

    Glam rock, specifically, helped Bowie to blend in. Seen as a fashion trailblazer, he could appear weird and shiny and futuristic and he was just seen as a leader among the glittered masses. Aliens must be able to see the future, too, because they seem to have set Bowie's human time clock improperly. He's always been a little bit ahead of the trends, be it through embracing glam, utilizing electronica or pushing new genres and styles. Recently when he's caught by paparazzi on the streets, he seems to always be wearing a version of an all gray outfit-- is it the uniform of the future? I guess we'll find out. (in tears at this oh my god....)

    Even now, his health, productivity and good looks just don't make any sense. He's aged very well-- a little too well, if you ask me. In his work, he's always shown a unique ability to collaborate with the unique, the talented, the odd and the unexplainable. His long-time bass goddess, Gail Ann Dorsey, is too amazing to be real and what's up with his alien twin sister, Tilda Swinton? He finally broke down and featured her in his new music video. Again, putting the obvious right in our faces as to avoid suspicion.

    And how in the heck did he manage to record his entire new album in secret? In the age of the Internet over-sharing and social media, where everyone's damn sandwich is considered news, keeping a secret of this scale is unthinkable. Clearly, there is some kind of mind control at work here.

    In the alien's personal life, his choice of mates is also suspect. His rumored relationship with Iggy Pop, explored in the film Velvet Goldmine (the greatest accidental pornography of our generation), hints at both a network of gifted beings and the from-the-stars theory. In the movie, there's a magical absinthe-colored crystal from the sky that gives those who possess it some kind of amazing power to dazzle people with charisma. It is passed on and on, from Oscar Wilde to Iggy Pop to Brian Ferry to David Bowie.

    Bowie is currently Earth-married to Iman, a supermodel.With their big heads and long limbs, supermodels are the closest thing we have on this planet to an alien-looking female. But his former wife, Angela, is the only person to publicly discuss his alien-ness.She wrote a book in which she straight up described her own husband as an "alien" who was "lit from within" and "one of the Light People." (Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie, pages 56-57, check it out.)

    Bowie, I believe you. You aren't from here. You've said it a million times in a thousand different ways. I'm receiving your signal and I welcome you and what I assume are other super-hotties from your planet.

    So, what do you guys think? Do you think interesting physical traits like his intense, uneven eyes are a reflection of something non-human? Or that his hospitalization in 2004 for an angioplasty was a cover for something else? Or that his long-time refusal to fly in airplanes should be seen as a distrust of subpar human flight technology?

    And while we're at it, what do you think about Prince? He's from the same planet, right? Yeah, I thought so. Keep exploring, people of Earth. The truth is out there.~~~

    Justin Timberlake says he's got nothing but "love" for alleged new rival Kanye West. Timberlake downplayed the media hype over his West-targeted performance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend, when he changed a lyric to the song "Suit & Tie" from "Aww, s--- so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" to "my hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic."

    He was apparently referring to West's remarks during a February concert in London, where the rapper declared: "I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f---ing with that 'Suit & Tie.'"

    On Monday's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Timberlake stated: "For the record, I absolutely love Kanye. So there's that." He also cautioned: "You know, really, everyone: keep calm. Keep calm."

    When Rose Leslie got the call from her agent that she was landed the role of Ygritte on Game of Thrones, her reaction was explosive.

    The actress had already enjoyed an arc on one international hit (Downton Abbey), but she really wanted the role of the fiery Wildling scout who spars and flirts with the virginal Jon Snow (Kit Harington). Then one day she was walking in the center of London. “I remember the day very well, I don’t think it will ever leave me,” she recalls. “I got a call from my agent and he told me the good news and I was jumping up and down like a manic. It was phenomenal. I’m incredibly privileged to play Ygritte. She’s such a fiercely independent character and I love playing her. I was ecstatic.”

    After getting cast, Leslie dove into the books (she’s currently on Book 4). “I wanted to throw myself into the world of Westeros,” she says. As a member of the Wildling tribe, the actress shoots the bulk of her outdoor scenes in Iceland. She says the toughest thing about the extreme environment isn’t the cold, but walking in thick snow while trying to stay in character on camera. “You become very aware that this is Ygritte’s home, she’s incredibly comfortable in this particular surrounding,” Leslie says. “You can’t look like you’re working so hard to trudge up a hill. I’m like panting inside.”

    This season, which debuts March 31, Ygritte will get closer to Jon Snow as he infiltrates the Wildling camp. We’ve previously seen some strong hints about how tough Ygritte is, this season she’ll have more opportunities to show that she’s every bit as much of a warrior as the Wildling men (and demonstrates she’s pretty handy with a bow and arrow).

    The character does come, however, with one attribute that some actors might find burdensome. Ygritte has a bona fide catchphrase: “You know nothing, Jon Snow.” The line, which made a single appearance in season two, will almost certainly pop up again in season three. It’s used frequently in George R.R. Martin’s A Storm of Swords, the first half (more or less) of which inspired the new season of the HBO hit.

    The actress didn’t quite realize how much the catchphrase would become a part of her everyday life. Asked how often fans plea with her to say the phrase, Leslie says “so often” — but, she hastily adds, not so often that she’s become bothered by the request.

    The only annoying part of the whole business, she says, is that fans tend to be disappointed by her delivery. “I use a different voice — I put on an accent on the show — so when I say ‘You know nothing, Jon Snow’ in my own voice you get a furrowed brow from fans and they’re like, ‘That doesn’t sound like Ygritte.’ And then I got to go into [her character's] accent and do it and it’s a really long boring process for the fan and I’m sure they walk away wishing they hadn’t asked me because it’s such a kerfuffle.”

    There was one time, however, where the catchphrase was used in real life rather awesomely.

    Leslie was in Northern Ireland, one of the five countries where the upcoming season ofThrones was shot. She was sitting in a restaurant with a friend, and having a tough time deciding what to order. “And I said to the waitress, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to go for,’ and the waitress jumped in with the line. It was very funny; it was perfect timing. I gave her a high five.”

    Leslie considers. “Actually, I wanted to give her a high five, but it would have been incredibly lame if I did.”

    Nicole Scherzinger rose to fame in her lingerie, but if she'd shown a little more skin, she might be better off today.

    Well, at least that's what the former Pussycat Dolls member thinks about her career. In a new interview with The Independent, Nicole explains why sometimes she wishes she were "more slutty."

    "I come from the most religious family—my grandfather is a priest—and if they support me in all this, and they do, then I'm OK," the 34-year-old singer says. "I'm being sassy and classy; I'm having fun. I'm not coming from a dark place."

    But, according to Nicole, there's a downside to having a mom-approved wardrobe. "To be honest with you, I sometimes wish I were more slutty," she says. "I'd probably be a lot more successful if I were.

    "This is such a tough industry, you know," she adds. "To make it, you really have to sell your soul to the devil."

    So, has she sold out to Satan? "No, I haven't," she says. "That's probably why I haven't quite reached the top of my mountain. I mean, where's my Tony Award, my Grammy, my Oscar? Why don't I have any of those things yet?"

    Hey, did you know that feudmaster Azealia Banks actually makes music, too? That’s right! She’s not just known for fighting with everyone — she also has songs! Her latest, “Yung Rapunxel,” dropped yesterday a few weeks ahead of schedule, and it’s made quite a splash for, well, being the weirdest, most virulently rageful rap-screamo single from an ostensibly mainstream artist we’ve heard in a minute.

    The critics mostly agreed, noting the intensity of the production and Banks’ delivery along the tune’s distinctly radio unfriendly vibe — but whether it compensates for all that public embarrassment remains unclear. Check their best quotes below.

    :: Entertainment Weekly asked the question on everyone’s mind — “What is a Yung Rapunxel, anyway?” — describing the song as “a doozy” and writing: “Banks’ spitfire raps are delivered in a low register over a busy background of punishing beats and chaotic screams. ‘Jumanji’ this ain’t.”

    :: MTV Buzzworthy called it a “bona fide hip-house banger,” noting: “Produced by seapunk DJ and internet pioneer LIL INTERNET, the ‘Barely Legal’ rapper is back spitting fire over a manic ’90s HI-NRG-influenced track, which is cut in between muffled hollers.”

    :: As for E! Online, they discussed the evolution from “212″ to “Yung Rapunxel,” writing: “[The song] takes its name from one of Banks’ many monikers and is described as the twisted sister of sorts to her breakout hit ’212.’ It’s a blend of rap and screamo, which, for the record, we’re totally into.”

    :: Our friends at Spin mentioned the song’s unavoidable intensity and drew comparisons to Kelis: “If Banks’ contentious ‘Harlem Shake’ remix recalled Kelis’ ‘Milkshake,’ this one channels the ‘hate you so much right now’ fury of Kelis’ ‘Caught Out There,’ another track that goes from regular voice to INSANE SCREAMING on the hook. The insistent instrumentals more than keep pace.”

    :: Popdust felt that the song departed from her previous sound, with variable success: “As the first ‘real’ music we’ve had from Banks in more than a year, the track is a departure from her previous Seapunk sounds; like Kate Nash she’s decided that random screams make a fine disruptive element. It’s not all new, though, as Banks brings that bouncy ’212′ flow back for one verse.”

    :: The Prophet Blog called the witch-hop tune “bait for the haters,” writing: “Against a backdrop of demented club beats and scary sound effects, Banks’ alternates between almost indecipherable raps and distorted shrieks. Like Salem and Crystal Castles, it often sounds more like a coven casting a spell over techno tunes than simply just ‘dance music.’”

    What do you think of the new Azealia Banks single?

    MTV fan fave "Teen Wolf" may be off the air until June 3, but showrunne Jeff Davis has been keeping fans' appetites whet with plenty of spoilers in the meantime. This week, Davis agreed to do a Tumblr Q&A on the official "Teen Wolf" Tumblr- follow it if you haven't already!

    We've rounded up 10 of our favorite tidbits that Davis offered during the chat. Don't forget to mark your calendars, wolfpack: June 3rd!

    1. After all they've been through, Derek's pack definitely includes Peter Hale. "Peter is part of Derek's pack. They are a very close family," Davis confirms. Though many new characters will be introduced in Season 3, don't expect Derek's pack to grow. "I think the numbers may be diminishing," Davis teases.

    2. Someone will get "the bite" this season and transform into a new werewolf. "Yes," he says. "But not in the way you might expect." Ooh... a twist!

    3. Stiles and Derek's relationship changes this season -- but not like that. "They become definite allies this season. There are many changes in store for Derek," says Davis. When asked about fans' passion for "Sterek" as a romantic couple, Davis admits that it's given him pause on occasion while writing. "It did make me wonder about certain scenes for these first few scripts. I would not say it has affected the storytelling, though. There has been a long plan in place for certain characters. The path deviates sometimes but the destination remains the same," he says.

    4. What about the adults? This season we'll be spending more time with Sheriff Stilinski and Melissa McCall, plus we can expect details on Scott's father later in the season. As for Stiles' mother, fans will get more details about her, but not particularly soon. "You may need to be patient," Davis says, "But you will know eventually." And as for Coach Finstock: "There's always room for more Coach."

    5. Don't expect to see Derek's transformation into a full alpha wolf this season. "When [we] can afford that level of CGI maybe. How about when we do the 'Teen Wolf' movie?"

    Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders has given the strongest hint yet that the band will release their new studio album later this year.

    It is two years since Arctic Monkeys released their last effort, 2011s 'Suck It and See', and speaking to NME at the NME Awards in London recently, Helders spoke about the relaxed atmosphere the band have enjoyed while recording in America. Asked what he has been up to recently, the drummer said: "I have been in the desert… with motorcycles. Not with Josh [Homme], no. The band's just been working together, the band working on our own so far, writing and stuff."

    He added: "There's no time deadlines or anything like that for release. We're just getting back into it, because it always takes a while to get back into it."

    Quizzed on what the album will sound like, Helders replied simply by saying: "2013". Then asked if that meant the album will definitely be out by the end of the year, he added: "Well, we'd be stupid if we made a 2013 album and released it next year."

    Matt Helders has previously stated that he felt the band's third album, 'Humbug', was unfairly criticised while frontman Alex Turner has hinted that any new material is likely to be heavier and louder than before, inspired by the success of their 2012 single 'R U Mine?'

    Julianne Moore & Leslie Fremar

    At this year’s Oscars, a couple
    of darts stole the little gold man’s thunder. Anne Hathaway’s last-minute wardrobe swap to a pink satin Prada dress that accentuated certain points of her anatomy made her arrival the most-tweeted moment on the red carpet (#LesNipplerables) and got more attention in the days to follow than her supporting actress win. Despite this misstep, stylist Rachel Zoe (No. 3 on THR’s Power Stylist List) landed a win with her other Oscar client, best actress winner Jennifer Lawrence, whose intricate Dior Haute Couture gown wowed viewers (and caused a near face-plant as Lawrence walked up to the stage, though she recovered charmingly).

    Kerry Washington & Erin Walsh (idk what ranking they give Walsh)

    There’s no bigger or more ruthless meritocracy than a red carpet. Looks are instantly tweeted, Instagrammed, Pinterested, Facebooked and blogged as fashion cops and critics millions strong render their verdict on a star’s -- and by extension, her stylist’s -- choices. Having insinuated themselves into the national conversation, stylists also have become increasingly valued for their impact on a movie’s bottom line. Says Zoe Saldana, whose stylist, Petra Flannery, is No. 2 on THR’s list, “We’ve managed to convince a lot of directors who now have respect for what we put together and for Petra’s essential place in a huge press tour like Star Trek or Avatar.” When Saldana takes a memorable turn on the carpet, “Those directors are like, ‘Oh my God, Petra really knocked it out of the ball park,’ and you’re like, ‘Yeah, she did.’ She killed it, which is very important for me and for her and for selling a movie.”

    Zoe Saldana & Petra Flannery

    These fashion forces work hard for the recognition, with a perfectionism and preparedness that isn’t always visible on the red carpet (and that’s the point).This year’s No. 1, Leslie Fremar, travels twice a month from her home in New York to Los Angeles for her clients. “I’m a little controlling,” she confesses. Newcomer Joseph Cassell (No. 13) notably landed his gig styling Taylor Swift by showing up for a steam-and-press job at a shoot with fully loaded clothing racks and accessory options for the singer. “I’m an organized hoarder,” he admits. “That’s the quote they’ll use for you,” Swift dryly follows up.

    Naomi Watts & Jeanann Williams

    In a town where careers rise and fall on the backs of celebrities, the pros who clothe (or bare) those well-toned backs hold more power than ever. As they hone clients’ fashion images, stylists are becoming big brands themselves, with designing gigs (No. 4 Kate Young debuts a Target evening collection in April), lucrative merchandising deals (No. 7 Cristina Ehrlich’s casual basics line is a hot seller for QVC) and reality TV platforms (for Zoe, No. 21 Johnny Wujek, No. 22 Brad Goreski, with more inevitably to come). Nearly half of the stylists on THR’s list have their own clothing or jewelry lines. “Stylists sell the idea that if a consumer buys the product, they become their client,” says Kent Belden, CEO of styling agency MMA. “Although we think it’s the celeb who makes the best-dressed list, it is really the stylist -- and without almost any hesitation, their next big deal is being proposed.”

    YESSSS, LESLIE FREMAR (other clients include: Charlize Theron, ScarJo & Reese Witherspoon) & Petra Flannery (other clients include: Emma Stone, Claire Danes & Mila Kunis)! No to Zoe (Anne looked bad @ the Oscars but good at other stuff, JenLaw looked awful for most of awards season). And yes, it seems that stylists (or at least the ones that get to be photographed) are all white people.

    In news that will make you want to hug Josh Hutcherson, shrink him down to nugget-size and keep him in your pocket, the Catching Fire star got spotted bowling with his mother in Studio City yesterday. Can we pretend we’re a studio audience watching Danny Tanner apologize to his daughters in the last five minutes of a touching Full House episode and let out a collective awwwww.

    He’s clearly as good-hearted at his character Peeta Mellark. But less inclined to murder people due to his upbringing in a non-apocalyptic world. In other words, he’s perfect.

    C’mon. How often do you see 20-year-old guys bowling with their moms. On a day that’s not designated as spend-time-with-your-mother-day. Never, right? Sure I’m not an avid enough bowler to make that statement conclusively, but experience with 20-year-old guys tells me I’m right. I never recall texting one and getting the response, “sorry I can’t come over tonight, I’m out bowling with my mom. Then we’re probably going to get dinner and talk about her favorite college professors. After that, who knows? Froyo? A movie? I can’t be sure. We’re just having so much fun that I can’t predict where the night will take us.”

    Of course I dealt exclusively with 20-year-old guys who believed themselves to be very cool. Which usually meant they weren’t. At all. That’s why I love Josh Hutcherson. He doesn’t care about being spotted bowling with his mom. He’s not trying to be cool, he just is cool. Which only makes him cooler. And cuter. And man oh man, I want to collect him like a Pokemon and just keep him around for when I need to feel better about life.

    I’m not sure how much celebrities charge for that kind of service, but I’m more than happy to set up a Kickstarter and start raising the necessary funds. Who’s with me?

    Meet supermodel (and star of “The Face”) Coco Rocha (center, posing with her team of models) who’s sharing her experience filming the high-stakes modeling competition on Oxygen. Rocha, Karolina Kurkova and Naomi Campbell each selected four girls to compete on their team, with losing teams submitting models for elimination each week. In her fifth blog, Rocha reveals her team’s latest trials and gives solid advice to wannabe models.

    This week’s episode starts out with a clip of someone being called an idiot. Who’s the idiot and why, we ask? Turns out we will find out at the very end of the show. Idiot-calling aside, the test shoot this week is all about chemistry. Naomi teaches a lesson on how to sell a pair of Christian Louboutin heels alongside a male model and she’s looking for confidence, performance and charisma in the girls.

    The Drama Begins: When Margaux (Team Coco) is up, Naomi states her weakness is having no personality. To set the record straight, just because you’re not a loud or aggressive person does NOT mean you have no personality. Being humble, professional and demure are also personality traits – just not ones that register to Naomi apparently. But it’s Stephanie’s performance that has us all on the edge of our seats in the best way possible.

    Not to be outdone, Sandra shows up with a rose in her hand and goes in to kiss the male model on the neck. Naomi immediately throws herself into a fit of hysterics, falling out of her seat and running across the room
    laughing. Sandra is humiliated by her mentor and tells her so before storming off set. Naomi chases Sandra down to tell her off, claiming “no one is here to laugh at you” (previous scene excluded). Miss Campbell is furious at Sandra for walking off the set and so decides that she’s not returning to set either. Nigel is left to announce the winner alone and Stephanie is rewarded with a shiny new pair of Louboutins!

    Video Girls: The girls are back to create a short video campaign for online retailer OpenSky.com. Team Karolina discusses the benefits of using an all-natural pomade on their children, which results in a genuinely engaging clip. Although at first Margaux has a little trouble with fluidity, Team Coco pulls out a funny skit about a chic tuxedo blazer. Team Naomi decides to sell a bean bag and uses every ’90s infomercial trick of the trade, but it’s just not authentic. In the end Team Karolina wins – a great decision on the client’s part.

    Stephanie did an amazing job this week, so it’s only right that I send Margaux into the elimination room for the first time. Naomi is still furious that Sandra walked out on her and so sends her to join Margaux. And about that name-calling…: When asked why she would be a better representative for Ulta Beauty, Margaux says that a model has to be professional at all times. I concur — there is no room in the modeling industry today for a model who has anger management issues and can’t work well with others. Sandra has not been professional in the course of this competition and Karolina’s choice is a no-brainer: Margaux stays.

    Naomi is furious. “Margaux is a threat, that’s clear!” says Campbell. “Now Karolina’s team is gonna lose.” Why, I wonder? Because little old Margaux came back? She flatters us! She also subtly infers that her girl Sandra was never a threat at all. Karolina receives the full wrath when she walks in the room and is called a “complete idiot.” In all the time I have known Karolina, she has been many things — sweet, honest — but never an idiot. For the record I think being reasonable and a good sportsman are enviable qualities. Naomi then turns to Margaux, who at 22 years old has been in school full-time until last year. “Margaux’s been working for eight years,” Naomi says. “Don’t you think she should have been someone by now?!”. The whole tirade is really harsh. We’re supposed to be role models, helping these girls, not tearing them down.

    The fact is, Margaux may not be rich or famous but she is someone, she’s a great model and more importantly a genuinely good person. Whether she wins or loses matters less than how she plays the game and that, I feel, goes for everyone.


    Can we please talk about how Naomi's desperation to win is not cute? I was loving her up until she started this whole sabotaging thing. WTF eliminating the talented girls so your team has a chance? And the way she talked about Margaux right to her face was ridiculous. You don't get to talk shit when your team has untalented bitches like Sandra and Jocelyn. I'm disappoint, Naomi.

    This post is brought to you by Naomi not giving a shit about any of this:

    On the last episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, queens Roxxxy Andrews butted heads with Jinkx Monsoon before revealing that, when Roxxxy and her sister were both little kids, Roxxxy’s mother abandoned them at the bus stop. It was a really heartbreaking moment because, well, what kind of mother would abandon her kids like that? That’s a very special kind of heartless. Not only that, but Roxxxy’s drag mother, Erica Andrews, passed away the same day that episode aired, so right now she’s probably in a really vulnerable place. So of course, people started sending her really hateful, awful messages. In light of this, Jinkx took to Facebook to tell everyone to knock it the f**k off…

    Dear fans, friend and supporters.

    I’ve seen some really disparaging remarks made about my fellow drag race competitors … for example: “You deserved to be left at that bus stop.”

    Roxxxy and I may not always see eye to eye, but she doesn’t deserve such things being said to her.
    Remember that we all play the game in different ways. Though we may feud, it doesn’t mean we don’t have a friendship underneath it all.

    Any fans of mine who think that’s the way to talk to other people have completely missed my message. Haters will hate, but let it just be water off a duck’s back. I love you all.


    I always figured that one of the best parts about RuPaul’s Drag Race was the fact that it encouraged people to be nicer and more accepting of other people. Yes, some of the queens can get a bit bitchy, but they still genuinely love each other, like real sisters. Roxxxy doesn’t always have the best attitude on the show, but no one deserves to be told some of the crap that people are slinging at her. So a big standing ovation to Jinkx for coming to her sister’s aid on this one.

    Sherlock series 3 could air at Christmas says Benedict Cumberbatch

    Could fans be treated to a modern-day take on seasonal adventure The Blue Carbuncle?

    Sherlock fans already think all their Christmases have come at once, following the news yesterday that Benedict Cumberbatch and his co-star Martin Freeman have signed up for a fourth series of the detective drama. But another revelation from Cumberbatch could make the festive season even more exciting...

    Cumberbatch says series three, which starts filming next week, could hit screens at Christmas.

    "I think they're talking about the winter [to show it]. Around Christmas but I'm not quite sure when," Cumberbatch told RadioTimes.com.

    If he's right, the timing could raise some interesting questions about the content of those upcoming episodes...

    For many Sherlock Holmes fans, the combination of Christmas and the great detective immediately brings to mind classic Arthur Conan Doyle short story The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.

    With its snowy London setting, the tale of a stolen gemstone and a Christmas goose is about as festive as it gets, but also includes some of the most satisfying examples of Holmes's deductive reasoning, and some intriguing insights into his personality.

    Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss has confessed himself a huge fan of the story, telling RadioTimes.com in no uncertain terms back in 2011 “I love The Blue Carbuncle. I’d love to use it as the basis for a Sherlock Christmas special!”

    Eagle-eyed fans may spot a potential problem with this scenario – Gatiss and Steven Moffat's big reveal last year of the three words they claim will define the upcoming episodes.

    How could Rat, Wedding or Bow possibly refer to The Blue Carbuncle? Well, the snivelling villain responsible for the theft of the priceless jewel could certainly be described as a rat, but beyond that I'll let Moffat and Gatiss have the final words...

    "[The three words] may be misleading, are not titles, are only teases or possibly clues, but might be deliberately designed to get you into a lather"– Steven Moffat

    "We could change it completely... that's the fun"– Mark Gatiss

    Like any beauty junkie, we're totally obsessed with the raging nail-art trend. And while some of our fave—and most creative!—looks are inspired by stunning celebrity manicures, it's not always easy to replicate the stars' intricate looks.

    Luckily for us, a few of Hollywood's most sought after manicurists have teamed up with NCLA Nail Wraps to create easy-to-apply nail decals emblazoned with styles similar to those created for celebrity clients. Jenna Hipp, who counts the edgy Miley Cyrus and Glee's Lea Michele as fans, designed simple chic half moon wraps inspired by requests she specifically received from leading ladies.

    "Elegance and simplicity are very important to my style," Hipp explained in a release. "My wraps reflect that."

    For the more adventurous gal, Drew Barrymore and Demi Lovato's go-to manicurist, Stephanie Stone, offers an out-of-this world galaxy print sure to spice up any look thanks to colorful psychedelic swirls, as well as a flirty floral style that's just perfect for spring.

    And while you might not be familiar with manicurist Madeline Poole's name, you likely know her celebrity clients—the oh-so-stylish Kate Bosworth and our own Kelly Osbourne—and the ombre nail trend she helped popularize. Poole's Electric Gradient design helps you mimic the trendy look in a punchy yellow-to-turquoise fade.

    The best part? No appointment necessary!
