Did Lil’ Wayne End The Skinny Jeans Trend?

Was this all it took for people such as myself to realized that skinny jeans should come to an end? After watching the VMAs I was already thinking that this dude lost his mind with those leopard print spray-on tights. Although I’m a purveyor of skinny jeans, sadly I can no longer support this trend. Maybe Weezy’s stylist made a mistake. Maybe they ran out of other jean designs. Whether if any of those things happened the trend must come to an end.

To make matters even worse, they were women’s jeggings! There’s no way I can look at Weezy the same. Hood pass revoked, rockstar card declined, masculinity turned away at the door. It’s bad enough Wayne threw out a corny subliminal diss at Jay-Z on It’s Good, and Beyonce’s pregnancy/belly rub was the highlight of the night. He decides to provide us with shitty performance to end the VMAs and wore those painted-on jeans that were made for the female gender. Why Wayne? Why? The silver lining in all this for Wayne is that his album is projected to sell 700k its first week. But the majority of people will remember his wack jab at Jay and him wearing a tranny’s nut-huggers.

Oh and if you ladies would like a pair of those fabulous jeggings (laughs) they’re made by Tripp NYC. You can buy them here for $44.

Video: MTV’s Suchin Pak Talks Hester Street Fair w/ LocalBozo

Check out my homie Justin as he interviews MTV Correspondent Suchin Pak about the creation of the Hester Street Fair in the Lower East Side.

Veteran journalist and MTV news correspondent SuChin Pak wears her unabashed love for New York City on her sleeve. Seeking an outlet to reinvigorate and appropriately represent a neighborhood so rich with local history, Pak and her production team, The Big Social, embarked on a challenge to open an innovative outdoor market that embodies the spirit and energy of the lower east side. And to ensure that the place would become a staple of the area that New Yorkers can rely upon for many years to come. Her creation would ultimately birth a weekly market place, where hand selected artisans could sell their wares in a friendly, cool setting. From freshly prepared eats to clothing to accessories to be brought home- this would become the Hester Street Fair. headed down to the historic site of the Hester Street Fair for a one on one chat with SuChin Pak. We discuss the intricacies of scouting the location, putting on the Fair, attracting vendors, what we can expect for the rest of 2011 from summer’s favorite local outdoor marketplace and so much more. Listen in for details about the Fair’s biggest announcement to date, coming in the fall. The Hester Street Fair is open every Saturday from 10am-6pm.

The Situation Gets A Show Now???

So the execs at MTV figured “what the hell! Let’s give it a shot.” If the show involves The Situation getting genital warts from a land-mine disguised as a grenade, then I may watch.


Mike Sorrentino, better known as The Situation, has inked a pact with the cable network for a potential series. Sorrentino is not attached to a specific project at the moment, but a pilot presentation will be filmed later this year for a possible series pickup.

This comes after the cable network greenlit two untitled Jersey Shore spinoff series: one features Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley, while the second is led by Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio. Both shows, expected to bow some time in 2012, center on the trio’s lives away from Jersey Shore.

MTV exec Chris Linn told THR in an interview the same day the pickups were announced, that the spinoffs will not dilute the franchise. “I think it allows us to expand out from the base of Jersey Shore without taking away from what Jersey Shore is. They would continue to be involved in any potential future cycles of Jersey Shore,” Linn reassured at the time.

Jersey Shore is MTV’s top-rated series of all-time; its third season averaged a 7.7 rating in the persons 12-34 demographic, up drastically from the first two seasons.

Details On Pauly D’s New Show

I hate all the cast members on ‘Jersey Shore’ except Pauly D. Hence the reason I’m not dogging him in this post. Vinny is ok, his eyebrows bother the shit out of me though. I’m not a fan of this whole waxing/arching of the eyebrows. If you have to clean them because you have a unibrow then you get a pass, but some of you dudes take this shit overboard. ANYWAY, here’s what HuffPost provided:

DJ Pauly D has a bright, or at least a busy future ahead of him. Jersey Shore castmember currently books DJ gigs for 50 grand a night, has plans to go to Italy for the next season of Jersey Shore, and has his own spin-off in the works.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer of both Jersey Shore and the spin-off, SallyAnn Salsano described Pauly D’s new show: “It’s awesome. You know when you watch a bunch of guys who’ve known each other forever razz on each other? Like in The Hangover? That’s what they’re like all the time.” Castmembers Snooki and JWoww also have a spin-off in the works, though according Salsano it is more “Laverne And Shirley.”

However, not everything is moving at a quick enough pace for Pauly. Ronnie and Sammi’s oft-stalled relationship has proved to much for him to handle. “They need to move on,” he told E Online, “That’s all I’m gonna say!” Salsano seems to agree by implication, claiming “I spent more time with Ronnie crying than I know what to do with and I had to drink enough water so that I didn’t dehydrate.”

Open Letter To Chris Brown From Kevin Powell


A letter from MTV’s Real Word: NYC and politician Kevin Powell. Only a rehabilitated “angry black man” can help this current “angry pusswad.” Read on…


Dear Chris:

I really did not want to write this open letter, and would have preferred to speak to you in person, in private. Indeed, ever since the domestic violence incident with Rihanna two years ago there have been attempts, by some of the women currently or formerly in your circle, women who love and care deeply about you, to bring you and I together, as they felt my own life story, my own life experiences, might be of some help in your journey. For whatever reasons, that never happened. By pure coincidence, I wound up in a Harlem recording studio with you about three months ago, as I was meeting up with R&B singer Olivia and her manager. You were hosting a listening session for your album-in-progress and the room was filled with gushing supporters, with a very large security guard outside the studio door. I was allowed in, as I assume you knew my name, and my long relationship to the music industry. I greeted you and said I would love to have a talk with you, but I am not even sure you heard a single word I said above the loud music. I gave your security person my card when I left, asked him to ask you to phone me, but you never did, for whatever reasons. And that is fine.

The Situation Booed!

Who thought Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was funny in the first place? The only funny thing about him is that he’ll soon fade into obscurity.


Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was nearly booed off stage at Comedy Central’s Roast of Donald Trump on Wednesday night.

He failed to draw laughs when he referred to Trump as “Donald Chump.” also reports he insulted the other presenters, calling Marlee Matlin “ugly,” Larry King “old” and Lisa Lampanelli “fat.”

He also told fellow roaster Snoop Dogg that he and the Trump had a lot in common because the millionaire developer owned a lot of property and Snoop’s ancestors had once been property.

Snoop shot back by pretending to mistake the Situation for Snooki. “I’m sorry,” he cracked, “all white people who act black look the same to me.”

At one point, the audience began to boo so loudly that comedian Jeffrey Ross had to interject into the act to try to save The Situation, who admitted: “This is my first night doing comedy.”

Sniped Ross, “It’s also your last,” as the audience applauded, reports Los Angeles Times.

Lampanelli told TMZ that The Situation “tanked really bad.”

A Comedy Central exec even suggested to the Times that most of his act might be cut from the final broadcast of the roast, notes USA Today.

Still, The Situation didn’t seem too bent out of shape over his roast blunders.

He called the jokes “a collaboration between me and the writers” and didn’t think the crowd was too hard on him. “No, not at all,” he told the Times. “My whole career people have been hard on me, so, y’know. I stood in the pocket where a lot of people would crumble, a lot of people would walk off stage, but I stood in there. I delivered.

“Maybe if I hadn’t gone on with the sunglasses, there wouldn’t have been such a negative [vibe],” he mused, adding that Snoop advised him to wear the Aviators so that no one could tell he was looking at the teleprompter. “Maybe they thought I was too cool, but that wasn’t the case. I was just wearin’ them ’cause Snoop said to wear ’em.”

The roast airs Tuesday on Comedy Central at 10:30 p.m.

Video: Audition From New MTV Reality Show

The success of the Jersey Shore has led MTV to create a spin-off: On The L Train.

Instead of living in a shore house, the new cast will be living in a studio converted into a lofted 4 bedroom that will sleep 8. And instead of schilling tourist t-shirts at a boardwalk shop, they’ll be working at the new American Apparel on North 6 Street. It’s hipsterrific.

Deena Before The Jersey Shore

The newest Jersey Shore cast member has something else in common with Snooki than just being a sloppy, STD-infested, drunktard. She used to be skinny, and drank herself into fatness. More pics after the jump.

The Only Reason I Watch It

Jesse Carere also know as Chris Collins from the show Skins UK version is better is the only reason I watch this show. I’ve seen some episodes of the UK one and yes it is better, besides that, I find the character Chris to have the most depth which makes him ultimately more interesting. I do like the Tea as well, she has her own issues that I don’t wanna get into because I haven’t seen all the episodes of this season. The most recent episode aptly titled “Chris” was kind of the one I was waiting for. I’ve skimmed/skipped the other ones, especially the premiere (I hate Tony). For those who haven’t seen the episode I won’t really go into much detail. It does make you think. What does one do with a $1,000 and no parents around? Had that been me, it probably would’ve went down the way it did in the show, minus the overdose of boner pills. I think the writers of the show hit their stride with this episode since it provides depth and a pretty serious issue. Most of the eps I’ve seen are based around sex, drugs, and partying, which is fine considering that’s what high school was like for me some. When you have shows like Jersey Shore, you become numb to all this nonsense, so that’s why I didn’t take much interest and I think its partly the reason people passed on it, just my opinion. Jesse Carere will have a bright future outside of this show and I will continue to watch until it becomes unbearable, which may happen as long as Tony is being the prototypical douche he is.
