On Friday night, Reign Entertainment Co. held the launch of 3D Art by S. Whittaker and her exhibit, "Time Signature." S. Whittaker's works are oil & acrylic based portraits on wooden canvases featuring infamous entertainers from the past, present and future, ranging from Run DMC to Amy Winehouse, and Beastie Boys to Marvin Gaye.

She brings her intensity and soul to every brushstroke, and is loved by celebrities and avid art-buyers alike. This opening served as S. Whittaker's official launch of 3D Art, and was held at Top of The Garden, where guests were treated to complimentary wine & cheese, while perusing the art with the unbelievable backdrop of literally, the top of Madison Square Garden.

We don't know if the Ravens or the 49ers will be victorious at this weekend's Super Bowl XLVII, but we do know Beyonce is likely to put forth the best performance of the day. We commend Pepsi's choice of performer as Super Bowl halftime shows have a tendency to be uniquely horrifying mashups of pop culture that are as awkward and uncomfortable to watch as they are compelling for their overwhelming awfulness. How bad could they really be? Let us count the ways. Here are five of the top 10 most ridiculous Super Bowl Halftime Shows ever, from Prince passionately stroking his "guitar" to N'SYNC trying to rap with Aerosmith. Yes, yes they did.

[DJ Cassidy has the moves and the style. Go HERE for more pictures via DJ Cassidy] When it comes to most big name brand collaborations, the celebrity usually just hands their name over to the brand and doesn't take much part in the whole design process. That's not the case in Rockport's latest Bridgeport boat shoe, designed by DJ Cassidy and launched at the East Hampton Blue & Cream store this past Saturday. One of our favorite celebrity DJs appeared in an ad for the shoe company in 2008 and has remained a fan, so when the company offered him the opportunity to design his own pair, he jumped on board. Celebrating Cassidy's snazzy new boat shoe with the DJ design were Russell Simmons, Ryan Leslie, Lyor Cohen, Andre Harrell, Swizz Beatz and Paul Sevigny. He drew inspiration from his two biggest influences - both fashion and musically - Run DMC and Michael Jackson. So what do a pair of shoes like this look like? Cassidy considers the greatest outfit of all time to be Michael Jackson's look in the "Billie Jean" video: Black leather suit, red bow tie, pink shirt, pink socks... More»
