Not to be outdone, Fergie (the pop star) has begun the promotions for her new scent, Outspoken. This September, Outspoken promises fans notes of “starfruit, tuberose, jasmine, and passion flower with black leather and smoky vetiver.” And why did she choose such a loud name? Why not something a little more subtle like “Tease” or “Fancy Nights“? “From my music to my wardrobe, my style is all about speaking up and making a statement…Outspoken definitely turns heads, but it also lets your true personality shine through.”


The official Danielle Staub Sex Tape — starring the Real Housewives of New Jersey outcast — will hit shelves everywhere adult-themed smut is sold on June 14. And no, it wasn’t shot way back when no one knew who this woman was; it was made last September, according to TMZ, which reports that the 47-year-old ex-con-turned-Garden State socialite appears in the extremely graphic, Not Safe for Work, Life, or While Eating, X-rated video romp with an unidentified male.

This is the second time in the past year that the Bravo reality personality has caught herself at the center of a sex-fueled controversy. In June 2009, Staub was forced to obtain a court order barring former boyfriend Steve Zalewski from peddling a video of the two of them in the throws of passion.

On Tuesday (June 8th), rappers Kanye West, Common and Lupe Fiasco headlined an exclusive concert for students of Chicago’s most reformed high school. The students of Farragut Career Academy sent eardrums throbbing as the kids were shocked as the three hip-hop superstars took the stage for a V.I.P performance.

Tuesday’s performance marks the end of a third year of competition for Chicago schools challenged by violence and dizzyingly high dropout rates. Farragut, which officials said was the most reformed, beat out six other schools to win this year’s contest, co-sponsored in part by Chicago Public Schools and the foundation started by West’s late mother, Donda West, a Chicago State University professor.

The hip-hop stars also took to the stages at John Marshall Metro and Percy L. Julian high schools on the same day.

During his high-flying NBA years, former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen’s life was consumed by the basketball court, and money matters were entrusted to a big-league financial guru and attorneys.

But on Tuesday, Pippen took the witness stand in a downtown Chicago courtroom and talked about how lousy financial advice led to a bad $1.35 million investment in a Gulfstream jet and a $3.25 million investment in a real estate development deal in the 1700 block of West 119th Street that eventually went bankrupt.

Lady Gaga returned to her Upper East Side roots Thursday afternoon to attend her sister’s graduation from the Convent of the Sacred Heart, dressed in God knows what.

Wearing a see-through (yes, see-through) lacy pantsuit, broad black hat and black veil, the pop mega star was spotted outside the prestigious all-girls Catholic school she also attended.

She was checking her “Videophone.” No word on whether Beyoncé was on the line.

A handful of “Paparazzi” turned up for the ritzy graduation at East 91st Street and Fifth Avenue to snap some photos as security guards whisked Gaga into a waiting black SUV.

Zoe Saldana and Nicole Richie looked gorgeous on the red carpet at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards held at the Berkeley Square Gardens in London, England on Tuesday, June 8th.

Katy Perry is leading the pack of music lovers who aren’t going “gaga” over Lady Gaga’s latest musical short film. The “Waking Up In Vegas” songbird has defiantly tossed her “Little Monster Card” and slammed her quirky pop counterpart for the buzzed-about “Alejandro” video — an effort Katy calls “blasphemous and cheap.”

In the video, released Tuesday, Gaga wears a latex nun’s habit, underwear with a cross emblazoned on her crotch and sucks rosary beads after cavorting with a pack of semi-naked gay men. The clip hit a sour note with Perry — the daughter of evangelical Christians — who hit her Twitter to air her disgust over Gaga’s controversial use of Catholic imagery.

“Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke,” the pop singer remarked curtly. Gaga is yet to respond to Perry’s comments.


Marc Jacobs’ “The Whole Equals the Sum of Its Parts” speech at the CFDA Awards Monday night isn’t the only thing that has fashionistas wondering if the hunky designer and his Brazilian fiancé, Lorenzo Martone, are whole or apart.

Martone, the head of ARC PR and a newly minted swimsuit designer, according to WWD, was nowhere to be found at the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s equivalent of the Oscars – or in Jacobs’ acceptance speech. Some eagle-eyed nightlifers are wondering if Martone’s make-out session with another man late last week had anything to do with his conspicuous absence.

The drama all went down last week when the pair left the amfAR party with pop singers Ricky Martin and Lance Bass and headed to The Park restaurant on 10th Ave. in Chelsea to celebrate Wilhelmina Models CEO Sean Patterson’s birthday. When Patterson invited a group of friends to continue the celebration at his SoHo apartment on Wooster St., Martone accepted the invitation, but Jacobs didn’t. And that’s where Martone might have gotten into hot water with Jacobs.

Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams’ last album together was called Destiny Fulfilled for a reason: Destiny’s Child is never making another album or performing together again. If you don’t believe me, trust Matthew Knowles, proud father of pop diva Beyoncé and former manager of the most successful girl group ever. Refuting reports from the rumor mill, Knowles says the trio is not getting back together, now or ever.

“Contrary to rumors online of a Destiny’s Child reunion, there are no plans for the group to reunite for a performance or album,” Knowles states in a press release issued today. “The rumors are false. Destiny’s Child made an unprecedented impact in contemporary music, becoming one of the best-selling groups of all time. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have each moved on to successful solo careers. The members remain close, but will not reunite as a group.”

If you admired the Pepto-pink $9.99 plunging minidress Jersey Shore star Jenni “J-Woww” Farley wore to the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, then your in luck! That dress and other pieces created by reality star J-Woww are soon to hit the market. Yes: Farley designed her own dress for her upcoming clothing line, the aptly named Filthy Couture.

Farley explained her aesthetic as such to PeopleStyleWatch: “I keep it sexy classy. I won’t go to porn star sexy. I won’t go that far.”

Farley’s most famous piece thus far remains the barely-there bust sling she once hawked on her personal website (“as seen on Jersey Shore“). The success of her upcoming line may rest on the popularity of the upcoming second season of the show, which follows the crew on adventures in Miami’s club scene.
