Dave Navarro for PETA
Rocker Dave Navarro has bared all for a shocking new PETA ad that sends out a message about animal cruelty in the cosmetics industry.

The Jane's Addiction guitarist is often seen wearing plenty of eye makeup, nail polish and more, and he recently learned that some beauty product firms use cruel animal testing to determine if their products are safe for human use; so he decided to only use products that aren't tested on animals.

Unlike the European Union and Israel, where animal testing has been banned in the cosmetics industry, there are no current laws in the U.S. prohibiting animal test...

Dave Navarro
The man who was convicted of shooting and killing Dave Navarro's mother, Connie Hopkins Navarro, and her best friend Susan Marshall Jory in 1983 has escaped death row.

John Riccardi was sentenced to be executed in 1994, but officials at the California Supreme Court reversed his death sentence.

According to the judgment, Riccardi, now 76, was denied a fair trial when the judge presiding over the case excused a "prospective juror during jury selection."

After the killings, Riccardi became a fugitive. He was captured in 1991 after someone tipped off police about the murderer's whereabouts f...

The Jane's Addiction guitarist has faced a series of personal tragedies, including the murder of his mother, but is advising youngsters to stay strong following a series of suicides in the U.S. linked to schoolyard bullying.

The Largest Obstacle For Lamar Odom And Khloe Kardashian Is Their Reality TV Life

September 30th, 2009 1:18pm EDT
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
One would think that only dating a month before tying the knot could be a factor in the length of a marriage. How about the fact that the husband works away from home for eight months out of the year? Wrong. According to PopEater, Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian's marriage is already doomed due to their Reality TV lifestyle.

PopEater's first mark against the Odom-Kardashian pairing? "Danger sign number one is that Khloe and Lamar have already let the whirlwind of reality romance take precedence over their relationship. The pair reportedly rushed to the altar in order to stay on the deman...

TV Reality Romances That Ended In Divorce

Jon and Kate Gosselin
When you open the doors to your world and let television cameras capture your daily routine, it's hard to maintain a normal life. Especially if you are a celebrity couple broadcasting your relationship for the public to scrutinize. It seems that more often than not, couples that appear on reality shows together end up splitting up by the time their series is released on DVD. Is it inevitable that the couple will split up? Are they taking a risk when they sign on the dotted line?

Not all couples fall victim to the reality show curse, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed and Ozzy and Sharon Os...

MTV Reality Show Couples Doomed From The Start

Nick & Jessica
Oh, to be famous. The advantages of being a celebrity are copious. They get free meals and special tables at restaurants, VIP access to fancy hotel rooms and clubs, and have personal assistants to follow them around and obey their every instruction. They get clothes and gadgets sent to them "just because," and are actually taken seriously when they request things like a new toilet seat and a 12-foot boa constrictor to be in their dressing rooms before scheduled appearances.

Unfortunately for celebrities, however, fame isn't always rainbows and smiles, especially when there are cam...

'The Cho Show': Korean of the Year: Episode 1 Recap

August 22nd, 2008 11:21am EDT
Margaret Cho
The late 11pm start time for the first episode of "The Cho Show" on VH1 seemed to me to be an exciting harbinger of edgy, wickedly profane comedy to come. It all started promisingly enough: Comedienne extraordinaire Margaret Cho opened her new reality series with hard rock, a funny bit about Jack Black and his only towel (you had to be there) and a flash of her va-jay-jay - suitable and desired for a late-night crowd. Then something truly unexpected happened: Margaret became mundane.

The usually outrageous Cho is not only restrained in this series opener, she's downright neutered. Her ...

Okay, so Starpulse ran an article on February 21 titled "Guyliner: Hot Or Not? You Decide," but we left a number of big names off of that list-- enough, in fact, to make a second list of more men who publicly wear the dark penciling around their eyes.

Some find it sexy and attractive, while others find it downright disgraceful; but in either case there are plenty of guys doing it lately. While our first article may have taken a positive slant on the issue at hand, this writer is only creeped out by these men who are obviously more concerned with their image than anything else.

Music, TV, film, Dave Navarro's done it all, and he's been asked plenty of questions along the way. Dave's not one to shy away from questions, and he certainly doesn't dislike the process, but it can get pretty boring if everyone starts asking the same questions. That's why when Dave launched Spread, his very own talk show on ManiaTV.com, he decided not to ask the standard questions but instead engage his subjects in authentic conversation about the things that interest him most.

The gown was made of denim, the cake was made of Styrofoam, and the bride gushed that romance had blossomed when she paid off a gambling debt to the groom with sexual favors. It's a wedding, Hollywood style, where about the only things Pamela Anderson and Rick Solomon have in common are starring roles in blockbuster sex tapes and two failed marriages behind them - each.

If Anderson and Solomon make it work, they'll not only defy expectations, they'll also escape a place in the celebrity marriage hall of shame. These stars are experts at rushing to divorce court as soon as they've rushe...
