February 11th, 2013 11:04am EST
55th Grammy Awards
  The 55th Annual Grammy Awards got off to a hot start on the red carpet, where music's biggest stars gathered before the main event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Most stars adhered to the requests in the memo that CBS sent out on Wednesday, asking stars to tone their fashion choices down. The memo specifically asked that "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered"; also warning that "see through" fashions, visible thongs and attire exposing any part of "genital regions" was forbidden at this year's award show.

Most stars followed the rules, including Jennifer Lopez, who ...

Review: 'Marley' A Documentary About A Music Legend (Video)

April 20th, 2012 4:20pm EDT
'Marley'
The music of Bob Marley makes me feel really, really good. I could be in the worst mood, stuck in traffic...whatever. All I have to do is click on 'One Love', 'Exodus' or 'No Woman No Cry' and my spirits soar.

However, my knowledge of Bob Marley was limited. I knew that he was a Rastafarian, a Jamaican legend and one incredible songwriter/singer.

After seeing Kevin McDonald's documentary entitled 'Marley' I am happy to report that I now know so much more about Bob Marley the man and why he was and still is one of the greatest musical icons of the 20th century.

Macy's 2009 Thanksgiving Day Parade: Meh

November 28th, 2009 8:51am EST
Macy
So, in the spirit of Turkey Day and all that is holy in the holiday season traditions, I got up too early to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade along with an equally weary Liz Lewis. This year was pretty run of the mill.

Like all years past, NBC rolled in with semi truck filled with shameless plugs, an overload of NBC promotions, and puns corny enough to even make younger kids grimace. The route changed, to the chagrin of all those with pricey Broadway real estate who look forward to this fall classic, and the cast of Glee was glaringly absent. With NBC bringing out some real...
