VH1′s Unplugged, the award-winning music series, is returning with eight all new episodes for VH1, MTV and CMT. The first performer? None other than Adam Lambert, our most beloved American Idol contestant ever, who had not only planted his sparkle-seed in our earholes from the moment he opened his 24K-gold lips, but had also managed to stick a feather-cork in our heartholes following our two interviews together.
Rihanna shot her video for “Hard” earlier this month, and we already have our hands on a 30-second sneak peek. Talking to MTV News, Rihanna described the video as “couture-military.” Now we know why. With machine gun in hand, she commands a troop of soldiers while wearing a futuristic white top, black shorts (or are those panties?), and combat boots. Considering the song’s lyrics (“I see you aiming at my pedestal, I betta let ya’ know that I’m so hard”), we’re guessing that Rihanna is firing a warning shot with this video. Potential competitors: Don’t even try!
Not only will “Hard” have its world premiere exclusively on VH1, MTV and The FABlife on Thursday, December 17, at 4PM EST, but Rihanna will also be here to chat with fans. Don’t miss it.
Year Six, and there’s a sense of an ending at Hogwarts—and not just because Ron plays his last game of Quidditch. Harry Potter is growing up, dealing with facial hair and passes from a comely café waitress. Indeed, romantic entanglements almost take precedent over Harry’s quest for Voldemort’s weak spot. This should suit his more hormonal fan-base fine. Unbelievers may find it all a tad talky until Bellatrix Lestrange shows up to prove that evil’s playing for keeps. Roll on The Deathly Hallows!
Extras: Deleted scenes, a doc on author J.K. Rowling‘s hectic life, and a teaser for the big two-part finale.

For the past few months, we here at the Lindsay LohanAnthropological Society have noticed an interesting trend. That is, our subject, Ms. Lohan, has taken to posing with her fingers in her mouth. Our research pinpoints the start of what we’ve coined “the face-pick pose” to August 2008, when Lindsay very suddenly and inexplicably began posing with her fingers dangling out of her mouth. It’s as if she’s been caught mid-nail bite, while also pondering the meaning of stilettos. And it’s become her favorite pose.
Photographic evidence shows that Lohan engages in the face-pick pose in both posed, red carpet pics as well as candid snapshots, which leads us to believe that the face-pick is at times deliberate, and at other times purely habit and done without thinking. Still, the overall intention of the face-pick pose remains a mystery. It’s neither sexy nor attractive, and gives off the illusion that Lindsay has just discovered treasure hidden deep in her tobacco-laced gums. Or perhaps she just likes sucking the self-tanner off her fingers? Regardless, it’s the most disturbing Lindsay trend since her obsession with leggings which – much to our own horror – has yet to end.
Peruse our photographic evidence of Lindsay’s face-pick pose below.
Despite their celebrity status, stars are no more immune to style blunders than you and I. Whether it may be a planned disclosure or an accidental mishap, butt cleavage is a common mistake.

Happy snackin’. (Ew). [Photo: Splash News Online, Getty Images]
