Let’s Face It, Sanjaya is Pretty

Maxim has named Sanjaya its “Girl of the Day.” I think Maxim is trash, poor writing and a poor concept – but I have to give them credit here.

I’ve hung out at a lot of bars, and I’d say 90% of the women on Earth don’t take care of their hair the way Sanjaya does. So ladies, the lesson here: develop that winning smile and some golden locks and you too can be Maxim’s gal of the day.

But don’t EVER get a fauxhawk. Those are just ass.

Akon Smacks That On Stage

Here’s the video that got pulled from Perez’s site tonight. This is from an Akon show in Trinidad. Akon got a little freaky with some female audience members. The sound and video quality aren’t ideal, but you can make out what’s happening. “Smack That” is the song playing in the background, and the dude, um, smacking that is Akon.

They’re kind of lopsided, my darling. And what have you done with your hair? Is that how people do their hair for prom in Albermarle? Because you haven’t lived there in a really long time, sweetheart, and this ain’t prom.

Carrie Underwood looks precious. A newly single Bucky Covington made an appearance, as did Taylor Swift, looking killer in a super-cute dress.

The death toll in the VA Tech shootings has risen to 33 people, including the shooter, who killed himself. This number may rise as people remain in the hospital in various conditions. This is now the deadliest mass shooting in United States history.

Full update here.

Let’s remember, too, that we’re just 4 days shy of the 8th anniversary of the Columbine shootings.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the folks at VT and their loved ones.
