Vanity Fair Cover: Emma Stone August 2011

Emma Stone, one of the most hilarious and just plain cool broads ever know to mankind… Will be sizzling on the July cover of Vanity Fair.

The Actress known for her roles in films like ‘Easy A‘, ‘Zombieland‘, ‘House Bunny‘ and a few more instant classics like ‘Superbad‘ tries to play down just how hot she is.

It’s obviously not working, Emma..

But your humility makes you even more adorable! 🙂

Stone’s in not one, but three flicks this summer: ‘The Help,’ ‘Friends With Benefits’ and ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’

“Talking about this stuff is pretty new,” she said when asked about her love life.

Stone, who recently broke up with actor Kieran Culkin, is rumored to be dating her ‘Spider-Man’ co-star Andrew Garfield, but the pair have remained mum on the subject.

Stone, like a true Hollywood pro, reveals that “the only solution I’ve come to when it comes to things like that — the health of my family or dating, really personal things — is not to talk about it.” – From: ‘Emma Stone’s Bad Habits: Sugar, Wine and Heroin‘ By Kelly Fisher

Icon Award Winner Neil Diamond Performs to a Standing Ovation at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, Plus Fashion Highlights!

2011 Billboard Music Awards

With spirited, audience singalong versions of “Sweet Caroline” and a choir-assisted “America,” Neil Diamond closed the 2011 Billboard Music Awards Sunday night (May 22) by accepting his 2011 Billboard Icon Award.

Seeming just as moved by but more coherent than his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in March, a leather-jacketed Diamond hushed the standing ovation from crowd at Las VegasMGM Grand Arena by saying, “I’m gonna get spoiled. Don’t do that.” Diamond also joked, “I would’ve settled for a Top 10 record; you didn’t have to do the whole award thing. I love it. I don’t know exactly what it means to be an icon, but I always wanted to be one. Now I guess I am…I’m gonna Google it right after the show and find out exactly how an icon is supposed to handle himself. But this is absolutely wonderful…What can I say? It’s too much.” -Source:

Neil Diamond '77

A humble and gracious Neil Diamond thanked his Wife, Children, Supporters and Record Label, Columbia. The 2011 Billboard Icon Award was presented to Neil by   “Glee” star Matthew Morrison. The Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand grew loud with applause on Sunday to a nearly blushing Diamond, who was receiving a standing ovation from one of the Billboard’s Big Winner,  Justin Beiber and Girlfriend, Selena Gomez .

Diamond performed his legendary hits “Sweet Caroline” and “America,” backed by a full gospel choir on the second song.

Reinforcing his staying power, Diamond scored his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 — after 45 prior chart visits — just three years ago, when “Home Before Dark” opened atop the chart in 2008. Diamond is the only artist to score a top 20 hit in each decade since Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart launched in 1961, with his first hit, “Sweet Caroline,” in 1969. With 17 top 10 albums on the Billboard 200, he ranks among the top four male singers with the most such hit collections, and is one of just four men to scale the Billboard 200’s top 10 in each decade since the 1960’s. Among men in the chart’s five-decade history, Diamond has the 10th most Billboard Hot 100 hits, with 53.  -Source:

Congratulations, Neil! I still wear the “I’m a Diamond Girl” tee shirt from your late 90’s tour. Thank you for providing so many incredible hits, for so many years! My Mother has been smitten over you since somewhere around 1976, and will I’m sure always remain so. Can’t say I blame her… There’s just something about you, Neil Diamond. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee who has somehow managed to maintain his style, career and family with gratitude and humility… I’ll steal your words, Neil Diamond. To you, I sing.. “You’ve got the way to groove me!”

“Ladies… Start your engines!”

Fashion Notation:

Forget spring colors — it was all about black at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards.

Plenty of stars rocked basic black on the red carpet at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, including Lady Antebellum, Fergie, Kylie Minogue and even Neil Diamond. Who’d have thought he could be so on trend? Joining in the fun were Taio Cruz, Michelle Williams and Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo, as well.

Neil’s classy black tuxedo was appropriately distinguished for such an occasion as receiving the Icon Award from the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas yesterday. This daringly fashionable gentlemen is easily remembered as the confident rocking guitarist with feathered hair other men could only dream of, the man in the sequin jacket. Unsurpassed in every way, ‘Neil Diamond Fashion’!

Why We Love Stana Katic: For Lovers Only, Vintage Diamond Jewelry and On The Road

Stana Katic is a Canadian-Born American Actress who is well-known as the character of Kate Beckett in ABC’s hit sitcom Castle‘, as well as her role in the upcoming film, For Lovers Only.’ The talented actress also starred in Quantum of Solace, The Librarian and the Spirit. Castle’s Stana Katic (Beckett), who recently made The Express Tribune Blog’s A to Z list of sexiest women in the world was already top notch in our book, and she just keeps getting better!

Stana Katic will be starring in the film ‘On The Road‘, a recreation of the iconic Beatnik Generation novel by Jack Kerouac. Stana will work alongside actress Kate Bosworth and actor Jean-Marc Barr, who will play Kerouc himself, among others. Yey. What better than one of your favorite actresses starring in a film version of one of your favorite novels? Not much! That’s just one reason why Stana Katic is so very top notch.

There are, of course, a few other reasons why we love Stana Katic so much. First of all, she is probably sporting one of the coolest names in Hollywood. Secondly, she is always among the best dressed for red carpet events, constantly evolving her classic style. In the images above, Static is wearing various pieces of Neil Lane Jewelry, including a Neil Lane Antique Diamond Bracelet that was an instant smash hit.

A third reason, but certainly not the last, is that this Canadian born starlet loves to research! She apparently has enjoyed her role as NYC Detective in Castle so much so that she’s begun spending time learning more about the NY Police Department, stating that she has found a whole new appreciation for law enforcement. There’s just nothing to NOT love about this gal! Talented, glamorous, stylish and down to earth.

We’re sold on Stana Katic!
