It's not our place to say whether the anger and outrage of the neighbors of Sunday's Hudson Block Party is inappropriate. We're just saying if the residents occupying the same vicinity as the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval, Elton John's Oscar viewing party, or just the routine shitshow that takes place outside the Hudson and the rest of Santa Monica Blvd on the weekends are this "disgusted" over the Hudson Block Party, it must have been one helluva messy rager. And actually, we know it was from everyone who was there and have photos of the good times to prove it. More»

The new face of empowered Hollywood womanhood is funky, funny, and (almost) never blonde. You might already know this, because the new face of empowered Hollywood womanhood is making quite a name for itself in film, television and the internet, led fearlessly by, amongst others, musician/actress/Siri enthusiast Zooey Deschanel and the other like-minded gals with whom she founded the female-friendly (read: no awful Esquire-style "hotness brackets") Hello Giggles site one year ago. Sounds like it's time for a birthday party! More»

That's just about the only explanation I can muster for the general positivity surrounding the Billboard Music Awards, which folks were pretty jazzed on last night despite the mediocre lineup, meandering pace, and schizophrenic attempt to stay positive despite a raft of tributes to recently deceased musical icons. Still, the evening wasn't without its charms, to say nothing of the moments so forehead-smacking tone-deaf that they also warrant acknowledgement. Let's take a good look at both! More»
