Step aside mad men, the ladies are coming to town and they’re ready to shake their tails at a TV near you.

Marina And The Diamonds Talks 'Burger Queen Tour,' Hollywood Obsessions, & Upcoming Album

4/14/2011 9:16am EDT
There’s something about the 25-year-old one woman band that gossip bloggers can’t stop buzzing about. Maybe it has something to do with Marina Diamandis of Marina And The Diamonds frequently making headlines for her couture.

While Lady Gaga is proudly pant-less and Rihanna likes it rough with S&M, Diamandis prefers her tamer choices, such as a Fafi graffiti dress, TV sunglasses, or a spiked bomber paired with a red hot pout. Perhaps some just don’t have a “bloody sense of humor” to laugh at her Tweets about fellow singer Britney Spears. Either way, we’re swooning over the Greek-Welsh beaut...

When it comes to stepping in front of the camera, 32-year-old blonde, blue-eyed starlet Mena Suvari knows how to get hearts racing. Throughout her film career, she has appeared, to the happiness of prepubescent boys across the country, as a teenage temptress, virginal choir girl, and rebellious cheerleader. Now, she’s ready to seduce audiences in a different way-as lusty heiress Catherine Bourne in the indie erotic drama, The Garden of Eden, based on author Ernest Hemingway’s controversial novel. In the film, we see Suvari’s character travel throughout Europe during the Roaring ‘20s with hu...

3/23/2011 12:02pm EDT
There’s nothing innocent about brunette beauty Rose McGowan. From a cold blooded teenage killer (Devil in the Flesh) to a go-go dancer with a machine gun-leg (Planet Terror), the 37-year-old actress and former fiancé of 42-year-old shock rocker Marilyn Manson isn’t afraid to channel her dark side. Since her days playing an enchanting witch on the television series “Charmed,” McGowan continues to be hailed by fans as one of Hollywood’s most tantalizing femme fatales.

Q&A: Lucy Lawless Dishes On Sexy 'Spartacus' Scenes, Hurt 'Xena' Fans & More

1/28/2011 12:00pm EST
It’s been nearly a decade since 41-year-old actress Lucy Lawless starred as a leather-loving heroine, but that’s ancient history. After "Xena: Warrior Princess" came to an end in 2001, the New Zealand icon continued her adventures in Hollywood, doing everything from minor television roles to showing off her singing pipes on “Celebrity Duets.”

Fortunately, Lawless has made a triumphant comeback as Lucretia in Starz’s television series, "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena." While Lawless did co-star in the previous "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" as the sinfully seductive wife of a gladiator trainer,...

1/4/2011 9:56am EST
What does it really take to be one of the most recognized muses in rock ‘n’ roll? Just ask fiery haired Pamela Des Barres, the world’s most famous groupie. Before TMZ and Perez Hilton reported on the escapades of celebrities, the now 62-year-old California girl set off to meet her idols and was doing plenty of kissing, but no telling, at least until she published her world renowned memoir in 1987, I’m With The Band. Finally, she dished on what it was really like to be with some of music’s most influential artists, including Mick Jagger, Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, and Jim Morrison. Yet, it wasn...

Q&A With 'Drop Dead Diva's' Margaret Cho

6/4/2010 9:28am EDT
Margaret Cho
Comedienne Margaret Cho has a lot to be thankful for. The San Francisco native who grew up among ex-hippies has transformed herself from budding stand-up opener to Jerry Seinfeld to cultural icon. At 41-years-old, Cho has become everything from best-selling author to a sex kitten on her own glitzy burlesque tour.

Having made thousands of fans laugh worldwide, as well as advocating human rights for women, Asians, and the LGBT community, Cho is a star in her own right. Just when one would expect her to step off the spotlight to relish her fame, she continues to get more bellies aching with h...

Q&A With 'Alice In Wonderland's' Tim Burton

5/24/2010 12:10pm EDT
No one is more “curioser and curioser” than goth cinematic artist Tim Burton. The 51-year director resembles many of his strangely wonderful, yet tragic characters. Born in sunny Burbank, California, Burton, who idolized monsters and grim poet Edgar Allan Poe, often hides behind a camera or oversized indigo-hued glasses. Whether surrounded by hungry paparrazzi in Los Angeles or strolling with his wife Helena Bonham Carter near their home in the UK, he’s often hunched over with wide eyes staring back. Burton, always decked in coal black garments with a crow’s nest resting on his head...

Q&A: Liz Phair Discusses 'In Plain Sight' Musical Role, Hitting The Road & More

5/12/2010 11:27am EDT
Before Miley Cyrus worked the stripper pole, there was indie rock artist Liz Phair who enjoyed teasing listeners with songs about getting down and dirty. Blonde and rail thin, the rebellious singer appears on her iconic 1994 cover for her debut album Exile in Guyville bare chested and howling. With lyrics like “I want be your blowjob queen,” the two-time Grammy Award winner enjoyed talking about sex more than pubescent boys, but also sympathized with teenage girls frustrated over settling for less.

While Phair fascinated audiences like any true rock star, she went the domestic route and ga...
