Hot Legs: Sugababes Singer Jade Ewan Struts Her Stuff

8/15/2010 2:41pm EDT
They're called the Sugababes, but as far as we can tell there's only one babe.

Maybe they should rethink their name? New member Jade Ewan recently showed off her long, lean legs at a music festival in Zambujeira do Mar, Portugal.

Bandmates Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah also took the stage, but leggy Jade definitely outshone her singing partners.

The band just revealed they will start work on a new album next week. The disc will be the first with new member Jade, who rerecorded Keisha Buchanan's vocals on their previous release "Sweet 7" after being drafted into the band in September.

Simon Cowell-SPX-015207.jpg
Simon Cowell has been an American Idol staple since its debut in 2002. But with Simon leaving at the end of this season, it's time to reflect on what he brought to the table: unabashed criticism and insults hurled at contestants that dare waste his time.

Perhaps one of his most infamous insults was said to a wide-eyed contestant that "sang" a horrendous rendition of an N'Sync song. "You look like one of those creatures in the jungle with those big eyes... a bush baby."

Hey quipped to Janay Castine in season four, "Let me use a horoscope analogy...a suitcase and plane travel within 24 hour...

The Best And Worst Super Bowl Halftime Shows (Videos)

The Who
The Who will do the honors of entertaining Super Bowl halftime audiences that don't switch over to the Puppy Bowl this year. The history of the halftime show is a surprising display of ups-and-downs, from mind-blowing performances to corny overproduced ego trips.

Best: Michael Jackson, Super Bowl XXVII

The halftime show was hurting. Two years prior, the New Kids on the Block performance was pre-empted by coverage on Desert Storm and their performance was edited down and shown after the game. Then, FOX swooped in and scooped million of viewers away from the halftime show the next year (mo...

Kaci Battaglia Interview
Kaci Battaglia might be one of the best new pop artists but in fact she is not exactly new. Nearly a decade ago and in her early teenage years, she had multiple top ten hits in Europe and after a short hiatus Kaci is back on the dance/pop scene.

A southern girl from the Tampa Bay, Florida area, Battaglia took a short break from the entertainment business at the age of 18 to pursue academic dreams in Cambridge, UK.

Although she might be the only pop star ever to think International Politics and Economics is exhilarating, Battaglia admits her academic dreams are not a priority right n...

Writer's Viewpoint: Is It Right For Others To Out Gay Celebrities?

6/16/2009 11:08am EDT
Lance Bass
To out or not to out, that is the question. For years Out Magazine, a gay publication, has taken to the practice of "outing" celebrities. Outing, declaring a celebrity gay when he or she has not admitted it, is controversial yet effective, for the gay rights movement. The celebrity is notified of the magazine's intent and thereby allowed the chance to come out on his/her own.

This practice, unfortunately, is due to the ignorance that is still running rampant in this country. Gay rights activists choose to emphasize that their lifestyle not only exists, but continues on a much larger ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Six

Dancing With The Stars
It was a night filled with diversity on Dancing With The Stars. Almost everyone performed a different type of dance, Michael Flatly, the Lord of the Dance, took Len's position for the night as a guest judge, and all the stars joined together to coordinate a hip hop routine.

Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke were the first to take the floor, performing a Viennese waltz. Maurice was skeptical on dancing a ballroom-esque number because he had not done so since week one of the competition. He claimed his mind was on overload. He didn't get too bad critiques, but he did wind up with t...

Varsity Fanclub
It is a widely accepted tenet in pop music that every generation needs its own young stars to scream for. So is it really surprising that a new group of fresh-faced young men have begun to make a footprint on the pop landscape? Even old-timers New Kids on the Block have reunited more than a decade after 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys ruled the charts. Clearly the members of NKOTB recognized that few people (even those of us old enough to own "Hangin' Tough" on vinyl), can resist the simple pleasure of five talented, upbeat guys singing and dancing in unison. It's been true since the Jackson 5 ...

Imagine driving across the country with nothing but the great open road in your future.

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Melanie Brown and Joey Fatone have a new role to add to their scarily similar resumes: TLC host. The duo will co-host ''The Singing Office,'' a tongue-in-cheek singing competition that pits different groups of employees against each other.
