Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" Preview!

Holy. Crap.

Well, it's official. Justin Bieber is no longer the little boy we were introduced to 3 years ago. In the 20-second preview for the video to "Boyfriend," Justin gets a rub-down from numerous women.

And we'd be lying if we said we weren't wishing we were one of those hands...

Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23!

Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 is exactly what we imagined it to be, which in this case, is perfect. From the opening segment in which Chloe screws her roommate's boyfriend on her birthday cake. At Sexy Trash, we love movies and television shows about bitches, and although we've only seen the pilot, it looks as though Chloe is going to give Blair Waldorf a run for her money as the premiere bitch of New York City.


The story focuses on June (Dreama Walker of "Gossip Girl" fame), a smalltown girl with big dreams who moves to New York City with a new job and a great apartment ("It's just like Friends!"). However, when she loses her job and her apartment in the same day, she's forced to look online for a new roommate. After meeting creep after creep, June finally meets Chloe (Krysten Ritter), who at first meeting is a great girl - everything June imagined in a roommate. As soon as June pays the first and last month's rent, however, things take a major turn.

Why the sudden change in behavior? Chloe's what we at Sexy Trash like to call a "scam artist" (perhaps you've heard the term before...) - she finds roommates, charges them first and last month's rent, then makes their life Hell for a few days until they decide they can't take it anymore. Chloe, you're brilliant. If this show wasn't a soon-to-be hit, we'd steal your idea. But since this is bound to be one of this season's most talked about comedies, everyone will know what we're doing, and we'd just end up beat up... It is what it is.

We've loved Krysten Ritter since Veronica Mars, so it's great to have her back on our screens, but what we enjoyed most about the pilot was Chloe's "straight gay BFF," James Van Der Beek (played by himself.) We don't know how long the Dawson jokes can stay funny, but as long as they find ways to keep his parody of himself fresh, we're down for watching it.

While we love the three leads, the supporting cast is just kind of there right now. The horny next door neighbor and June's "always there at the right time" friend, Mark, weren't anything to write home about (or write a blog about) in the pilot, but hopefully future episodes find them with more to do.

The show is laugh-out-loud funny, and coming from ABC, that's no surprise. NBC may have had "Must See TV" in the 90s, but this is a new era - Ross and Rachel are long gone, and we're more than happy to have the Happy Endings gang, Modern Family, and now... The Bitch in Apartment 23 as their replacement.

Friday Fashion: Fashion Face-off - Kardashian edition!

We've all read People magazine or People.com and have voted on the "Fashion Face-offs."  I'm taking it to a new level.
I understand wearing an outfit twice, but sharing it with a sibling?  If you have paparazzi following you around during every waking second, maybe mix it up a bit?

The offenders:  The Kardashian-Jenners.

I have 3 perfect examples.  Which was the worst?

First:  Kim vs Kylie Jenner.
I'm not a fan of this outfit at all but, I pick Kylie.  What do you think?


Second:  Kim vs Khloe Kardashian Odom
Hmmmm, this is a toss up for me.  I think Kim wins on this one - it works with her curves well.


Third:  All 3 original Kardashian Sisters.
I'll give it to them for this one - it's a huge marketing ploy.  This is a dress from their Kollection - honestly if there was no tie, I'd wear it.  I think it's flattering on all of them!


But then again ... if I had their wardrobe, I'd be wearing the crap out of those outfits.

American Idol Top 9

Here we are again, and THIS is American Idol! Our numbers are dwindling down and we have made it to the Top 9 ladies and gentlemen. To top it all off, this week the competition was heating up and the idols were bringing their "AI" game (see what I did there?!...yeah I know...move on). But anyway, the idols had to sing a song this week, that was performed by one of their Idols. There was QUITE a range of them, and competition was stiff (and I'm not just talking about Colton's hair). The night actually had 5 standing ovations, an Idol first I believe.


Starting with the girls, although I hate to admit it, my top girl this week was Elise Testone. She really brought her best, and looked the part. There's no denying that her voice is fantastic, but I just can't stand her smug attitude, she needs some humble pie. Take a slice girl. But regardless, here she is rocking out to Led Zepplin's "Whole Lotta Love".


Our top guy, is a repeat offender, but in a good way. Joshua Ledet brought the house down AGAIN, but an emotional rendition of Mariah Carey's "Without You". He was brought to tears at the end, and many of us were as well. He always puts 100% into his songs, and wow, we love it.


Our honorable mention this week is our favorite girl of the competition, a star in the making, previous diva of the week, Jessica Sanchez. She did a fantastic version of Beyonce's "Sweet Dreams". I also loved the drama of the stage set-up behind her.



Our castoff this week was a funny favorite, HeeJun Han. He had one of the best personalities and cracked us UP, but, his voice was just not up to snuff compared to the rest. We loved him, but we not surprised to see him go. Best of luck Heejun and we'll miss your humor.

Throwback Thursday: "Where is the Love?"

It's been an exciting week over here at Sexy Trash with all the best of the sexiest and trashiest celebrity gossip. However, our post on racism & The Hunger Games casting gained the most views and sparked the most conversation. In keeping with our free love and no hate theme this week, today's Throwback Thursday video is the one that introduced us to superband The Black Eyed Peas in 2003. We certainly love the powerful message and you can never go wrong having Justin Timberlake sing the chorus.

The lyrics speak for themselves:

"But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate

Madness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love"

Jennifer's Body....is changing!

Well, I can't believe that no one else posted on this, but this JUST in, new celebrity pregnancy!!!! This new mommy-to-be is MEGAN FOX! Megan is expecting with her handsome husband Brian Austin Green. See the match made in GOOD LOOKING heaven below.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Can we JUST think of how beautiful this baby is going to be?!?! As much as people seem to think Megan is that typical party girl actress, she's not. She's settled down and has even become a great stepmom to Brian's 10 yr old from a previous relationship. We envision sexy soccer mom and bake sales for school fundraisers, and all the other mom's green with envy. We here at SexyTrash wish you the best Ms. Fox and can't wait to see the future adorable bouncing baby that will be coming into the world.


Who Killed Rosie Larsen?

We did not find out in season one of AMCs hit show, The Killing, but fans are hoping to learn the truth in season two, which premieres this Sunday, April 1st on AMC at 8pm.

Season one starts with the grisly murder of young Rosie Larsen. It follows two dectectives, Sarah Linden (Mireilli Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) as they discover and investigate Rosie's murder. It's Detective Linden's final case working for the Seattle Police Department, as she is preparing to leave rainy Seattle with her son, to marry her boyfriend and move to sunny Sonoma, California. Linden becomes more wrapped up in the case and delays leaving Seattle, as the murder plot thickens and unwraps layers of mystery.


One of the mysteries is the tie to the city council member running for mayor, Darren Richmond (Billy Campell) and the Larsen family. Season one follows Richmonds campaign as he struggles to win over the current mayor and hits obstacles, including one of the campaign cars being the scene of the crime and the involvement of one big supporter of the campaign becoming a suspect. Season one also deals with the effect of Rosie's death on her family. Her parents and two little brothers struggle to deal with moving on and to finding closure. Stan Larsen (Brent Sexton) and Mitch Larsen (Michelle Forbes), each deal with their daughters death in different ways. Stan decides to take matters into his own hands and Mitch starts to pull away from everyone and everything she once loved.





Will we discover who killed Rosie? Will Linden leave Seattle and start her new life in California? Will the Larsen's be able to survive their tragedy? Tune in this Sunday at 8pm for the two hour premiere.

Princess of "The Hunger Games" Amandla Stenberg Responds to Racists

While Sexy Trash tries to cover all important Hollywood scoop, there are some things we just can't. Sometimes it's such a newsworthy day that a small red carpet nip slip seems like nothing. Other times, it's news we've heard numerous times before and we are just over it (Lindsay's in court AGAIN!?). And then there are the times when we're protesting - some examples are any Chris Brown coverage, any mention of The Situation, and more currently... Racist Hunger Games fans who went on an internet rampage because some characters were casted as black.

There is a whole deep post we could do about this. It's 2012, and while Sexy Trash is a non-discrimination zone, it's clear the world isn't. But really... this issue has already worn us out so much that we're just going to stick with facts.

We'll let your blood pressure soar as you read some tweets that Hunger Games fans posted after seeing the movie:

Don't worry - we hate you, too.

There are many, many more tweets along these lines... some that we REFUSE to show. Reading these make us literally sick, and it's clear that these people are racist morons, but not only are they racist morons, they are just plain morons. Please, let your prejudice and hate take over another franchise, but in The Hunger Games, why don't you learn to read and you might realize that in the books, Rue IS black. The book describes both District 11 tributes Rue and Thresh (portrayed by Dayo Okeniyi) as having “dark brown skin.”


That's as much commentary as we will be giving on the situation, and from here on out, we will be focusing on the positive.


Fan favorite Amandla Stenberg, (who played a PERFECT Rue), told US Weekly, "As a fan of the books, I feel fortunate to be part of The Hunger Games family. It was an amazing experience; I am proud of the film and my performance. I want to thank all of my fans and the entire Hunger Games community for their support and loyalty.”

God bless this little angel for looking past the haters. We couldn't think of a better cast, and while we would never openly wish death upon anyone, we do hope that one day there is a real life Hunger Games and everyone upset with this movie's casting are picked as tributes.

May the odds be ever in our favor....

The Fame Game

Between "A Day" and The Hunger Games premiere, we forgot all about something we've been mucho excited for: Lauren Conrad's first book in her new trilogy, The Fame Game!


The Fame Game is a spin-off from Conrad's best-selling L.A. Candy series. Her newest book follows Madison Parker, who made a name for herself as best frenemy of nice-girl-next-door-turned-reality-celeb Jane Roberts in the L.A. Candy books. Now she’s ready for her turn in the spotlight, and she’ll stop at nothing to get it. But with backstabbing friends and family, relentless paparazzi, and tabloid scandals she can’t control, Madison is going to have her work cut out for her. Plus, there’s a new nice girl in town—Carmen Price, the daughter of Hollywood royalty—who’s a lot more experienced than Jane was at playing the fame game. . . . Filled with characters both familiar and new, Conrad’s new series about life in front of the camera dishes Hollywood gossip and drama at every turn.

We. Can. Not. Wait.

We've loved L.A. Candy from the minute we picked it up and are constantly praying for a movie to be released (Hey, ABC Family! We'd even settle for you...), and although Madison was by far our least favorite character in the series, we're thrilled to see what shocking twists Conrad has planned for her in this new set of books.


Although it is now available on Amazon pre-sale, true fans of Conrad should hold out - as with all of her books, she will be doing a book tour complete with book signings and question and answer sessions. Illnesses, freak blizzards and work have held us back from her first three book signings, but nothing will keep us from meeting LC this time. Nothing.

It's Time to Un-Kover Your Beach Bodies!

Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian's collaboration with Sears, "The Kardashian Kollection," sells many hot items ranging from lingerie to clubwear. But the Sisters Kardashian are adding swimwear to their collection.

Kardashian Kollection co-creator, Bruno Schiavi, shared the picture below on Facebook, captioning it with "First look at our new Kardashian Kollection Swimwear campaign! The girls look incredible!!!!!"

And yes, it's true - they do, but good God, look how photoshopped it is! Even Precious would look great rocking a bikini in this photo shoot.

First Pics Leaked from "Les Miserables!"

We at the Sexy Trash offices have dedicated our lives to finding out all we can about the upcoming Les Miserables movie. We were thrilled when Lea Michele was in the running for Eponine, horrified when Taylor Swift beat her for the role, and are currently on the fence with Swift's replacement, Samantha Barks.

While we're still waiting on pictures of Barks and Amanda Seyfried, we've come across pictures today of Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe as Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert, respectively.



We're trying not to get too excited because Sexy Trash arch-nemesis Sacha Baron Cohen is a part of the film, but still... we can't wait for the December release!!

WE KNEW IT!

From the beginning, we thought Eva Longoria would be perfect for ABC's new primetime soap, Devious Maids. And we weren't shy to announce it.



While she's not acting in it, it was announced earlier that Wisteria Lane's Gabrielle Solis will be producing the soon-to-be-hit.

We're just giving it time. By season 2, she'll be a recurring character. We're calling it now...

"Put Your Graffiti On Me" - Kat Graham

While it's no Sassy, Kat Graham is at again. This time with "Put Your Graffiti On Me." It's cute, but will it be a record-breaking sensation? No. Sorry, Kat...

We love her in The Vampire Diaries, but we'd really love to see more of her. And we'd love the radio to be that outlet... We're not sure why the world isn't ready for her tunes, but they need to get it together.

"Glee" is about to get a VIEW of a MEAN GIRL.

Ryan Murphy, if you're reading (and we know you are), PLEASE have your upcoming guest stars have solos. We beg you.


It was announced earlier today that besides the already announced family members (Matt Bomer, Gloria Estefan, Pitbull) of our favorite McKinley High seniors, the Glee crowd should be expecting other guest stars.

TVLine.com reported that Whoopi Goldberg has signed on for an extremely pivotal three episode-arc. She will play Carmen Tibideaux, a professor at New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts (NYADA) who travels to Ohio to preside over Kurt and Rachel’s auditions — and apparently she sticks around long enough to deliver a verdict. Her first episode will air May 1, meaning she'll star in every episode except the May 22 finale.


Speaking of the finale... Sexy Trash's favorite hot mess, Lindsay Lohan, has been confirmed to be playing herself in a future episode (most likely the season ender.) She will playing herself as a celebrity judge at Nationals.


While Whoopi's role is obviously more crutial to the plot, we're not going to lie - it's Lindsay's we're more excited to see. Hopefully Rachel and Co. (or an opposing glee club) decide to play to the judges and do a Lohan medley featuring "Rumors," "Daughter to Father," and "Ultimate You." Ryan, we really hope you're reading...

Diva of the Week

"Nobody puts baby in a corner...." and neither do we, in fact today she is our Diva of the week. That would be the lovely, 2010 Dancing with the Stars winner, Jennifer Grey! She also is the daughter of Broadway veteran, currently appearing in Anything Goes, Joel Grey. To top it off, today is her birthday and she is looking fabulous and 52!!!!






We all remember her playing Francis "Baby" Houseman in Dirty Dancing (ugh....*swoon* Patrick Swayze RIP). I mean who could forget the unforgetable dancing scenes, where we all wanted to be her, doing that dirrrrrty dancing with him. Here's one of my favorite songs and scenes, until that prick walks in....LOL


She was slightly criticized a couple years ago, when she received plastic surgery on her nose. But seriously, who is Hollywood hasn't had a little work done? She definitely isn't competing with any of our plastic surgery nightmares that were in our previous post by Jes, our Sexy Fash expert!

Check out our girl two years ago as she danced her way to the top and won Dancing with the Stars!!!! She was partnered with another hunk, Derek Hough! Here she is performing a song from Dirty Dancing as a tribute to Patrick Swayze.



So let's give it up to her for being fabulous and only SLIGHTLY over 50! Cheers to you Jennifer Grey, keep on dancing diva!



Katniss Moves In To The House at the End of the Street

What's a girl to do when her movie (based on a best selling book trilogy) breaks records on opening night?? If you're The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, the answer is "Star in a lackluster horror film!"


In House at the End of the Street,  Lawrence's character and her mother (Elisabeth Shue) move in next door to a house that was the site of horrendous murders years ago, only to learn that the young man whose family was slaughtered still lives inside. He and Lawrence strike up a friendship that starts to edge towards romance, but she soon discovers some twisted secrets.

Katniss, we hope you learned some ass kicking techniques in the arena because chances are you're going to have to beat this neighbor's ass...and fast!

Justin, You Can Be Our "Boyfriend!"

His name's been on our lips due to the Carly Rae Jepsen video and his famous girlfriend, Selene Gomez, but it's been a while since we heard Justin Bieber. So his new single, "Boyfriend" could not have come at better time. It's definitely still the cute little Biebs we fell in love with since "One Time," but he seems to be growing up a little. He's definitely got swag.

Disney Takes Over Broadway!

Between Nick Jonas in How to Succeed, Raven Symone joining Sister Act and Corbin Bleu joining Godspell, it looks like Broadway should prepare itself for a Disney take-over. It wouldn't be anything new; Disney stars have certainly rocked stages before: Anneliese van der Pol (That's So Raven) and Christy Carlson Romano (Even Stevens) have appeared in Beauty and the Beast as Belle, Drew Seeley (High School Musical) starred in The Little Mermaid, and even Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) has dabbled on stage as Mimi Marquez in Rent.

It got us thinking... what if every musical on Broadway right now cast a current or former Disney star? Well, think no more. We're here to give you those answers.

Anything Goes - Demi Lovato

It's true that life imitates art, and because of that - Demi would rock the stage as Reno Sweeney, the reformed sinner/showgirl who demands attention.

Chicago - Hilary Duff
While she's years younger than the women who normally portay the role of Velma Kelly, Hilary Duff seems to be the perfect choice for the once-famous star who is trying to get her name back in the spotlight.

Ghost - David Henrie
If for no other reason than to see him shirtless and operating a pottery wheel, there's no one else we'd like to see as Sam Wheat besides the Wizards of Waverly Place star.

Jersey Boys - Lucas Grabeel
Although most audiences are used to a more flambouyant Lucas from his High School Musical days, his post-HSM work has shown that he can tone it down without turning off the charm, which is why casting him as Frankie Valli.

Mamma Mia - Selena Gomez
She may not be the usual blonde haired, blue eyed Sophie that audiences are used to, but looks aside, Selena has everything it takes to play the hopeful, optomist girl who wants to find her father before her big day.

Mary Poppins - Christy Carlson Romano
She has the energy and look to pull off one of the world's most famous nannies, but can she do the accent? We hope so, because this casting is spot on.

Newsies - Dylan and Cole Sprouse
Put a newsboy cap on them, and Zac and Cody were practically made for this show.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert - Ricky Ullman
Just look at this major case of Gay Face. He'd be perfect in drag.

Rent - Aly Michalka
Although the role of Mimi Marquez is typically played by a woman of Spanish decent, we could totally see this Phil of the Future star as the feisty sex kitten of Avenue B. Although, if you'd like your casting choices to stick to the usual color scheme of the cast's ethnic backgrounds, Aly would play a great Maureen, as well. Take your pick.

Rock of Ages - Vanessa Hudgens
It's true that we don't know much about this show, but it seems like a poor man's Rent to us, and if you've seen Vanessa's portrayal of Mimi for the Hollywood Bowl, you know a poor man's Rent is exactly what this young beauty is made for.

Spiderman - Zac Efron
Maybe this High School Musical hottie is exactly what the show needs to make it interesting. On second thought - no, it would still suck, but at least there'd be Zac Efron in a spandex suit. And if that's not Broadway magic, we don't know what is...

The Book of Mormon - Monique Coleman
While The Book of Mormon is a little more edgy than High School Musical's Taylor might be used to, we think she'd bring something fresh to the innocent role of Nabulungi, who dreams of escaping Africa and moving to Salt Lake City.

The Lion King - China Anne McClain
The star of A.N.T. Farm wowed us with her Halloween anthem, Calling All The Monsters and we'd love to see her charm us with her sass once again as Young Nala.

Wicked  - Ashley Tisdale
Obvious. Galinda is Sharpay, but with a magic wand.

Ugly Cry

Just when you thought I had a sensitive heart of gold, I write this post not seconds after. Welcome to the Sexy Trash lifestyle.

I had absolutely way too much fun Googling celebrities and their perfect ugly cry faces, there was no way I could deny you all of the enjoyment. Please feel free to share your favorite celeb's ugly cry face and someone out there reading, I think you should make a blog specifically honoring these faces. They're just too good.
Mr. Schu - Glee
Britney Spears
Dawson
Lucy
Paris Hilton 
Heidi Montag
Santana - Glee
Sally Field
Kim Kardashian... again... had to.
& the woman who coined the term... Oprah Winfrey herself.
ZING!
