Usher's marriage to Tameka Foster may have ended in divorce, but the singer doesn't consider the relationship a failure."I appreciate the relationship for what it was," he says. "Even though it didn't work out, I'm glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn't be married." So what went wrong? Usher says that shortly after the birth of their second child, he and Foster started to disagree over everything from parenting style to his busy schedule."We're two different people," he says, "and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent." The singer, 31, who sat down with PEOPLE in his Atlanta-area home, says that the couple's priority continues to be their children. (He and Foster share custody of Usher V, who turns 3 in November, and Naviyd, who turns 2 a month later.)"We had to put our issues aside and focus on raising them," he says. "There will never be another mother for my sons, and I'll always be their father."

Paris Hilton: the spoiled rotten cocaine whore

Paris Hilton The 29-year-old horribly spoiled little brat heiress has had three images circulate over the years from her run-ins with the law, including a 2006 photo taken after an arrest on suspicion of driving while under the influence; a 2007 photo snapped when she was booked for what was supposed to be a 45-day jail sentence; and the most recent, an image captured in Las Vegas when she was arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession. (Hilton is now facing felony drug charges that will probably be lifted, by old blood,  stemming from that arrest.)
And what does Ms. Hilton think of her photos? “I like my mug shot. I think I have a really great mug shot,” Hilton told the Boston Globe in 2008. “It looks like a magazine shoot.” and we all only have ourselves to blame for making this bitch a popular icon of society. middle america, you have created a monster.

Lady Gaga, WTF is wrong with you?

this is definitely NOT a surprise to me, but Nicola Formichetti&Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta AKA LADY GAGA  gives us a first preview of the upcoming issue 5 of Vogue Homme Japan as none other than her newest act, her alias Jo Calderone, There are two cover versions, both featuring the female artist, looking very much like a dude. The issue releases on September 5th, oh i cant wait!, P.S. that is sarcasm. here is a sneak peek of the awesomely weird interview.


Palermo, Sicily

Mechanic for my dad's business. This is the first time I've had my picture

Well, I always helped my dad at work, since I was a kid. I thought it would be
fun to have my picture taken.

I'd love to own my own car shop, I have a bunch of my own ‘muscle’ cars.
Maybe if I take some more pictures I can afford it.

I met her at a shoot Nick Knight was doing. She's fuckin beautiful, and funny,
and interesting. I was a little nervous for Nick to start shooting. She said,
"Don't be baby, you were "born this way." I took her out after. The rest is
private ;)

Well then! Lady Gaga is clearly bored and is running out of ideas to shock and amuse us!.

Hip-Hop Has never looked so Hipster Fantabulous, but now that Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi is around, its never looked, sounded, and felt so crazily good to love Hip-Hop, Kid Cudi is among my favorite rhymers to date. he doesn't feel cliche, he has heart, flow, & charisma. Something about his off-set voice just makes you think. he's not afraid to adorn a colorful hoodie, or rock chucks and a cut-off tee. style aside, this man has a brain. born January 30, 1984),better known by his stage name Kid Cudi (pronounced /ˌkɪd ˈkʌdi/kid KUH-dee),like saying Buddy with a "C", sometimes stylized as KiD CuDi, is an American rapper, singer and actor. He first gained major attention after the release of his debut mixtape A Kid Named Cudi. In 2009, his single "Day 'n' Nite" reached the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. "Day 'n' Nite" is part of Cudi's debut album Man on the Moon: The End of Day. Cudi has also worked with twitterfantastic Kanye WestJay ZCommonSnoop Dogg, MGMT,Ratatat, Lady GaGa, David Guetta and minor artists signed to the GOOD Music labelKid Cudi was oddly enough born in Cleveland, Ohio and grew up in Shaker Heights and SolonHis father, a house painter, substitute teacher and World War II Air Force veteran was Mexican-Native American, while his mother, a middle-school choir teacher at Roxboro Middle School, in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, is African-American. When he was eleven years old, Mescudi's father passed away from cancer; his passing would have a significant effect on his personality and subsequently his music. Mescudi attended Shaker Heights High School for two years, transferred to Solon High School, and earned his GED. Later, Mescudi studied film at the University of Toledo then dropped out after a year. Cudi's debut album and my personal favorite Man on the Moon: The End of Day was released on Universal Motown Records on September 15, 2009 and sold 104,419 copies in the first week and charted at #4. The album's first single was Day 'N' Nite, and is Kid Cudi's greatest commercial success thus far, the song charting well both in the U.S. and in Europe. The next single was "Make Her Say" (originally titled "I Poke Her Face"), which features a sample from Lady Gaga's song "Poker Face" and performances by Kanye West and Common. if you really have not heard much of Kid's music, i really really suggest that you but the album blindly, its a crazy genius blend of thoughts, poetry, and genius. he can take a thought that many have had before and jumble it into a melodic off-tune musical journey through a single sentence. BUY THE MOTHER FUCKIN ALBUM!!!!

Katy Perry: Teenage Dream is NOT a nightmare!

So I had The pleasure of listening all week to Teenage Day Dream, and even making my close friends listen to it as well. Now i have to say I'm not into waking up in Vegas, and I'm not too into kissing girls anymore, so her first album was not that amazing to me. it was catchy, it was cute, a little sexy, but nothing really grasped me the first time around. But TEENAGE DREAM the sophomore album from Santa Barbara's Sweetheart Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson AKA Katy Perry is actually a pleasant mix of sounds and lyrics. its not deep or profound, but its definitely a new direction i feel. The First track, TEENAGE DREAM is kind of a dirtier version of a Taylor Swift song. :You think I'm pretty, without any make-up on" I'm sure that's what every "teenage" girl wishes her man would be. i didn't like this track when i heard it as a solo track on the radio, but as the intro to this album, it kicks off the journey of this 12 track album surprisingly well. the second track, (probably my favorite) LAST FRIDAY NIGHT [T.G.I.F.] has a great start with lyrics like "I smell like a minibar" and "this a hickey or a bruise?" it makes this track about passing out at a crazy party the perfect female HANGOVER anthem. it even has a sexy-cool saxophone solo for ya at the end. CALIFORNIA GURLS feat SNOOP DOG is a pretty catchy tune, and I'm not gonna talk about it because you all have heard it. BUT Representatives for the Beach Boys are threatening to sue Perry for including the classic line "I wish they all could be California girls" in her tune. The line is lifted from the Boys' 1965 rock classic "California Girls," and the paper reported that publishing reps at the Boys' Rondor Music have sent a letter to Perry's label demanding that the original song's writers, Mike Love and Brian Wilson, be given a writing credit on "Gurls" as well as a share of royalties. i think that's kinda lame, but oh well, i guess when ur all washed up, you will go after all you can get. FIREWORK is the 4th track on the album, and i dig this one alot, its very Kelly Clarkson-ish it has that "since you've been gone" guitar riff and jump-up-and-down potential. PEACOCK track 5 is, im calling it now for future bragging rights, the new gay anthem, i can already see DJ's in WEHO fading out the PEA in a remix to leave the remaining left to repeat in our ears continuously. its a fun dirty little track, not sure it will get much airplay on the radio, but the clubs are sure to blast it for a dead crowd boost. CIRCLE THE DRAIN is the next track, and this is a great song about someone in a relationship with a broken person on drugs and being fed up with bullshit, it's Katy's Alanis song. "wanna be ur lover, not ur fuckin mother" i like this one alot, great electronic synths in this one. THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY is a reminiscent look on a relationship that is no longer, boo hoo not a huge fan of this one it kinda bombs here, but then quickly recovered by E.T. no, not the beer drinking Reese's pieces eating extra terrestrial, or is it? this is the song she seems to be either singing to someone that is so awesome they are out of this world, or she is singing to a freaky alien from m. night shyamalan's movie 'signs". "your touch, magnetizing, feel like i am floating, leaves my body glowing" WHAT I AM LIVING FOR & PEARL are great tracks as well. HUMMINGBIRD HEARTBEAT is a little reprise to TEENAGE DREAM in my opinion, its a continuation. and NOT LIKE THE MOVIES the last track is a great song, it made me appreciate her writing, and the piano touch is a perfect ballad cap for a teenage dream and a fun summer end album. i would buy the album, not just because i liked most of the songs, but because the fucking album is scented like COTTON-FUCKIN-CANDY!!!!!!!!

So Its 6pm on Wednesday August 18th 2010 and I'm about to have a Q&A session with the quite fabulous group, "TheQLUTCHproject" i have sampled some of the beats and I'm kind of in love with they're sound, and the chemistry of the group just looks like a blast. So read ahead cause its a pretty kick ass read.

Bayley: so first question, How Did You Form "The QlutchProject"?

QLUTCHwelllllll... theQLUTCHproject started as a musical tribe. We made our first music video here in Van City then rocked a festival called soundwave just before heading out to attack Asia and Indonesia for the next year. We gigg'd and sess'd out there and then returned home to find that our first vid (a trip-hoppy progressive experience of sorts) was kickin it on Air Canada Overseas flights. Once we'd touched down the crew that we'd worked with on that said that we had to do another music vid asap so along came Sexy Pie the visual. I'd written the song in Tokyo, recorded it in Bali, re recorded it minutes before a radio show in Tokyo then did some revisions in Van City (needless to say we may not be able to reproduce that exact sound in a jiffy). We hit video production land again HARD

I Bethany am also an actor so I had to take a minor hiatus to do a film with Sook-Yin Lee called 'Year of the Carnivore' where I played an Indie Rock singer, Lead for the band No Fun. After red carpeting at TIFF and other festivals the band question came up so much that we elected to take the time to hit the studio again and pump out new material.

In December of last year, Yuto a musical engineer came over to van-city from Japan. He was the one who remixed sexy pie. Bethany had a Christmas party for her agency coming up that was in a vampire theme. After sorting through tons of different songs yuto had created we came across one about vampires. we decided to redo the song and perform it at the party. With that - we needed a name. 

Looking up different names for vampires we came across the name clutch.

Clutch formed in the clutch with a q because it looks better and it's the first letter in amazing words like Queen. and the project was added on as well. 

We transformed our living room into a studio and got to Qlutchin' like EVERYTHING

BayleyWho Are The Members Of TheQlutchProject"?

Qlutch:DJ - Alex Joy


CONSULTING PRODUCER/WRITER/LEAD SINGER - Miyah Lauren                                              ASSOCIATED PRODUCERS - Yuto Nagayama & Parlange Jesus, Alex Joy also rocks some production too

BayleySo "SEXY PIE" Explain The Idea And thought process behind it. BTW the video looks spectacular!!!!

QLUTCH:Thanks sooo much!

thought process... ummmm too much umeshu in Tokyo. I, Bethany, started dancing around saying 'do you mind if I push out my hip and pout my lower lip?' And I pointed at my heels laughing gleefully 'Nope, I wont trip with this 6 inch stiletto grip'. Thus the birth of the pumpiness

BayleyWhat Inspired "Leather Studs & Fur"? Its kind of spectacular.

QlutchLeather, Studs and Fur is SOOO HOT this season. Hahahaha well, it was when we wrote it. Back in December our wardrobe was super inspired by Leather, Studs and Fur and that's all we were working with. I.e., we'd grab vint leather pants and cut em up into like vests and QLUTCHez (I walked that Qlutch down the red carpet at TIFF). We also wore Vint Fur coats (only vint cause like killing animals isn't really that cool) and just loved pairing it all with some studded hardward. The track really takes a tongue n cheek look at the distances people will go to look hot and fashionable.

'pretty pennies I will spend, I want more gimme more, I want more' 

Fashion is exploration, Music is also a sensory experience and exploration - we love finding synthesis; the Fashion/Art/Music fusion.

QLUTCH: oh... umeshu is plum wine. It's brilliant.

Bayley: Oh thanks for that explaination, i was wondering what that liquid inspiration was you were drinking. So what is your favorite City, and Why?

QLUTCHVancouver to live
Tokyo to work and shop
Bali for R&R
Phuket or Sydney to party? Depends on the kinda RUKUS you want to get into *laughs (we're loling our As O)

Bayleylol i went sooooooo damn broke in Tokyo lol phuket is a place i definitely wanna visit.

QLUTCH:You can spend WAY too much in Tokyo, but ask around and you'll find really economical ways to totally enjoy yourself there, Miyah can def show you around Phuket.

BayleyDo Any Of You Play Video Games? And if so, what video games

QLUTCHBRICKBREAKER Champions. Addicts. But like Champion addicts not about to give up a good thing.

Miyah JUST REVEALED for the first time blushing her butt off that she used to play HALO
'I can see your halooooo,,, haaaalllloooooo'- Beyonce said it best (Bethany was singin that)

Bayley: Awesome!!!! Mad Props Miyah, my geekboy heart has a crush on you now! lol, oh and Brickbreaker is pretty damn Badass Btw, i have a cool version of that on my PS3 while my favorite music plays

QLUTCHwow. That is badass.


QLUTCHmiyah's phobia is RODENTS. anything furry small and with a skinny little tail that wiggles around... and drags through gunk crap EVERYWHERE. Whenever anyone freaks out about anything, for example: teen pregnancy, first thing that comes to mind RATS!!!

Bethany's phobia is worms and frogs. They're gross and try to get in your mouth. Ew. I can't talk about it cause it's gross.

Alex is in Bali right now and so far I can say, on his behalf, that he is afraid of ... NOTHING!

Bayley: I'm deathly afraid of needles, clowns, and squirrels lol hate them, i was attacked on a camping trip, when i was 11, they wanted my nuts!

Bayley: What is a Favorite Moment on stage, or at an event?

QLUTCHohhh goodness... there have been so many cool moments. A few breath takingly cool ones when shooting the videos because seeing everyone do what they do at the top of their game and watching it all come together is pretty darn rad.
Miyah - the moment you step on stage in front of everyone after you've worked sooo super hard and they start screaming. And jumping. And screaming. And throwing stuff and themselves. And screaming - The whole way through the set.

Bethany - There was this one chick that kept jumping on stage in Bali, the security ripped her down a few times and then had to escort her out of the building. Somehow she found her way back up there with me and gave it like no bodies business. That was inspiring.

Bayley: i live for those moments, because you realize that ur work has touched someone in some way, its so exciting!!!

QLUTCH: Exhilarating 

Bayley: What color underwear are you wearing right now? 

QLUTCH:  omgosh - (Bethany) my rock villain hot pink boy briefs with light pink and white trim. They have a white tape on the front with crossbones underneath. They're kinda good luck so I have 2 pairs now. 

Miyah - Turquoise and Navy striped super cute sailor undies
