Mystery Fuels Huge Popularity of Web's Lonelygirl15 - Los Angeles Times
By now there can be little doubt that the song of 2006 is Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy." Actually, this uncannily catchy single has been kicking around since late 2005, when it first leaked on the Internet and was picked up by radio stations in the United Kingdom, which put the record in heavy rotation months before its official release in March of this year. In Britain, "Crazy" made history. It was the first song to top the charts on the strength of online download sales alone, and it remained at No. 1 for nine weeks—the biggest U.K. hit in more than a dozen years. Finally, Gnarls Barkley—the rapper/singer Cee-Lo Green and the producer/DJ Danger Mouse—decided to pull the single from the U.K. market, fearing it had become so overplayed that it would not be remembered fondly. Meanwhile, "Crazy" made the Top 10 in more than 15 other countries and held the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks.

Lainey's Entertainment Update
In some circles, I'm known as the Chinese Gwyneth Paltrow. Minus the designer clothes, rail thin body, rock star husband, fruit inspired daughter, and Academy Award. Other than that, we are like the same person.
Big Sci & Little Sci pull out the stops
I was interviewed today for the Canadian Press and Edmonton radio, every entertainment news site and blog blasted the story on their headlines, my inbox is overflowing with your comments (thank you!) and at the end of the day, people can’t stop talking about the multigenerational scientologists and the 22 page photo spread/interview featured in this month’s issue of Vanity Fair.
Now I know the buzz isn’t all positive and I’m certainly aware that the healthy dose of scepticism surrounding his every move shows no sign of receding but if the GMD can still generate such a high level of interest, even to the point of obsession, to the sound of a thousand conspiracy theories forming their own symphony of smut, it can only mean one thing on the Hollywood landscape: He is still relevant, this issue will sell out huge, so help us Goddess, and if indifference is truly the wooden stake in the heart of fame, I’m afraid to say that Tom Cruise will not be UNfamous any time soon.
But infamy, as we’ve seen in the case of Paris Hilton, still manages to generate a motherload of cold hard cash, especially in Hello Kitty land. And when you factor the MiniVan Majority into the mix – well… suffice to say, where is that f&cking book!!!http://www.laineygossip.com/ArticleList.aspx
The Superficial - Because You're Ugly
About The Superficial
The Superficial is a brutally honest look at society and its obsession with the superficial. It is not satire. It is not social commentary. It is the voice of our society at its worst. It is first impressions without sense of social obligation. It is the truth of our generation. It is ugly racism. It is jealousy. It is honest.
Just kidding. Our goal is to make fun of as many people as possible.
