These con-artists use their former connections to legitimate people in the industry as a way to lure the desperate, eager, young singer-songwriters into their web; promising record deals, tours, radio play, etc., for a price. How do I know? It happened to me.
With Justin Bieber becoming the first person to reach 40 million followers on Twitter (nearly eight million more than President Obama), it has become appallingly obvious that we no longer judge people based on character, integrity or even their contribution to society.
Rihanna could have made a difference. Instead, she will go down in hip-hop history as the girl who went running back.
I had a chance to do a quick interview with Ursie on the red carpet and it was a blast! She talked about which hair stylists she admires, who she'd like to get her hands on next, and what inspiration she took from Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model when planning her new salon.
I now had three different colors distributed on my ten fingers. It was an easy fix of a multi-hue mini-rainbow of blue and green. At the Awards show that night I got lots of compliments on my multi-color nails. I may have been perfectly on trend, but I wasn't sure how I felt about them

When I heard rumors about Jay-Z and Beyonce heading to Cuba, I was feeling pretty confident about my trendy choice to go that way. But then I bagged Cuba, and booked a flight to Vienna, Austria, home of the Lipizzaner stallions and Wienerschnitzel.
We've clearly gotten way too casual as a nation about our definition of what does and does not constitute sideboob. To help, we compiled a chart of the different kinds of boob potentially visible in celebrity photos.
Oh March. This month is about Easter and it being almost spring. It's about discovering new songs and listening to old ones too, right?
Hackers may use public appeal to lure victims, but consumers may easily outsmart phishers by employing these and other basic security procedures.
