Paul Stanley Stands By Comments About Peter Criss And Ace Frehle
KISS frontman Paul Stanley made his thoughts clear about the band's upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, calling it all "fluff" and "a farce."

"It's like an Addams Family bar mitzvah," he told CBS This Morning on Tuesday. "I'm gonna go, but let's not kid ourselves, you know. That's not the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is walking the streets...

"I see it as dubious. We are the bitter pill that they ultimately had to swallow. Because they don't like us. And the only reason they're inducting us is because they begin to look foolish at some poi...

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Kimberly Wyatt wore this mishmash dress to the Pride of Britain awards, but there's no pride in wearing such a bizarre outfit. Her purse looks like a glittery Christmas card, on top of it all.

Ashley Roberts wore this questionable pair of overalls featuring a repeated face of a lion. One would think she was going for a Goth look with her black nails, but she retains her light hair and paints her lips a shocking red.
