This 1965 video shows Brazilian singer/composer Tom Jobim singing his classic "Girl From Ipanema" alongside American pop singer Andy Williams. Besides the obvious retro charm of Andy Williams' "Lost In Space" sweater this is just a joy to watch and listen to. I love all these mellow Bossa Nova rhythms and being Brazilian-born myself it also brings back some great childhood flashbacks... Love it!

A good day is a Dita Von Teese day!
Savour the deliciously "Cointreauversial" burlesque bomshell performing her signature martini-glass-routine, specially edited for the Cointreau event in NYC last week. 500 party revelers sipped Cointreaupolitans and Cointreau Margaritas before being treated to the highlight of the night, the reveal of the "Be Cointreauversial Show". Strutting on stage in her crystal-encrusted costume, designed by Catherine D’Lish (made of 350,000 Swarovski crystals and weighing approximately 75 pounds) she posed and pranced before plunging into her giant martini glass.
I wish I had been there!!
When we think of the "King" many of us remember the unforgettable white "American Eagle" jumpsuit designed by Gene Doucette that he famously wore during his Aloha from Hawaii music concert. The show was broadcast live via satellite around the world on January 14, 1973. Over 1 billion people around the world watched and it was the first concert of it's kind!
The Suit has become the preferred outfit of Elvis tribute acts and impersonators the world over. But If you're not a Elvis tribute act yet fancy stepping into the shoes of the King from time to time, the Elvis Bath Robe is a great compromise between Elvis style and practicality . Now you can emulate the King of Rock and Roll in this awesome dressing gown based on the design of the original 'American Eagle Jumpsuit'.
One size fits most - Elvis Presley Bath Robe - £49.95

London's Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum unveiled their version of Madonna's "Hard Candy" album cover. The singer is shown in a boxing ring in a similar position as the image on the album - coming out April 29Th in the US. I am surprised that they did not go all the way to reproduce it exactly like the original photograph though if does look like the Goddess is really there in person.
Am I the only one that finds this quite "amusing" (read: fucked up) that KFC actually sponsors "Poutry Tents" - a kind of petting zoo for farm birds like chickens, ducks and turkeys? Isn't KFC on Peta's "most wanted list" for cruelty to animals? I took these shots at a fair-type event a few weeks ago btw.
Oh, how cute! Racing pigs!! I love those cuddly chubby racing piglets!!
