Digital Spy caught up with Jim while he's in the UK to chat about what's in store for the artists he has been working with.
You've served as a vocal producer for Britney Spears. How was it working with her? "She was very easy to work with. A lot of people would say Britney is more known as an entertainer, but what's most important regardless is being attentive in the studio and open to who you're working with without having an ego. She was very down to earth. I worked with her on Blackout and Circus and she was very easy to work with. That's why the songs came out so amazing."
After working with her closely on her vocals, what do you think she'll be looking for on The X Factor? "I'm sure she'll want to have someone who can entertain. Despite having a good voice, you've got to have a great personality on stage that will draw people in. As well as a great vocal, she'll want someone who can deliver a great song and keep people interested - and that's something they would have in common."
Britney's Blackout album was critically lauded, but came from a time of unfortunate personal circumstances. Do you think she can ever deliver a record of that standard again without the personal ups and downs? "They say that the negativity helps to sell an album sometimes, but in that case it was also about the music. It was unfortunate what was going on, but since then she's got a lot better. I really think that nowadays it comes down to just having good music. Songs that make people feel good in the clubs."
Check out JustJared.com‘s exclusive premiere of the the “Addicted to Love” vid, which was directed by Wilmer Valderrama and Andrew Sandler. Wilmer stars in the vid too!
FYI: The Nomads (@TheRealNomads) have three members – Shahine Ezell, Angel Onhel Aponte, and DJ Triple XL!
Makes me miss Leighton's pop music video days:

Kelly Clarkson Talks Cowboys, Covers & Country
When Pepsi asked lifelong Cowboys superfan Kelly Clarkson if she'd be interested in writing a song to echo through Cowboys Stadium, she jumped at the chance ... and then used her gut reaction to pen Get Up, a highly infectious new single for the Pepsi & NFL Anthems program (Kid Rock, Ice Cube, Wiz Khalifa and Travie McCoy also recorded new tunes for their favorite teams).
But trusting her gut has been working to Kelly's advantage for over a decade as she's continued to turn lyrics into anthemic mission statements thereby cementing a insanely loyal fan following. This year, we were rewarded like never before as every stop on her Stronger Tour featured Kelly slaying a fan-requested cover -- many of which have gone viral and led to deafening demands for a proper album.
Whether or not that's truly in the cards was just one of the subjects I broached while chatting with Kelly about drawing inspiration from her hometown team, returning to reality TV, her next career move and how being a pothead plays into it.
TheInsider.com: What inspired you to write Get Up?
Kelly Clarkson: I was actually inspired by the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders! When my manager called me to say Pepsi & The NFL were getting together to do this project and was I interested in doing a song, I said, "Heck yea!" I'd do anything with The Cowboys! I've been a fan since I was a kid growing up in Texas. What's cool is the verses are very much inspired by a chant the cheerleaders would do, while the chorus is a big ol' Kelly Clarkson chorus. I thought it was right for a project that was all about having fun. Usually my songs either have me angry about something or sad about something or feeling empowered about something – this was specifically written for this project, so it was very different for me, which was so cool.
Insider.com: Football is huge in Texas, so how excited is your family about this partnership?
Kelly: I've now officially made it in my family's eyes [laughs]. I could sing for The Pope, I could travel the world – but singing for The Cowboys is when I've finally made it [laughs]. Look, Texans love themselves some football. I've grown up a Cowboys fan and once you're born Texan, it doesn't go away. My boyfriend and I live in Nashville now, but he grew up where I grew up, and it's like you don't ever let go of that.
Insider.com: Will Get Up be worked into your shows?
Kelly: Oh gosh, yea! I think just because it's an easy song to sing along to. If they end up playing it in stadiums, I want it to be fun, but also easy for fans to sing with. It's very much a tour song as well, so I hope people love it. I'm excited to sing it for everybody.
Insider.com: Speaking of your tour, the cover songs have been a massive success. Did you anticipate people would react this way when you first decided to incorporate them?
Kelly: Not at all. We just always got fans requesting them. Saying, "I'd love if you could cover this," and honestly, I would love that too, but it just was never in the setlist. So we put it into the setlist! It's more work than normal for a tour, but every day we pick from all the songs people have Tweeted and learn it. Sometimes we nail it and other times ... we'll, it was fun [laughs]. I think it's cool because, from the beginning, [fan-involvement] has always been a part of my career, which makes it extra fun. And I can't wait. I'm always very excited about the covers.
Insider.com: Any plans to release a proper covers album?
Kelly: People really want that thing [laughs]. I don't think I'm not open to releasing one, I just haven't really thought about it. I love music so much and love covering all the different genres that I'm just having fun with how we're doing it right now. I don't know what will happen next. We did do the Smokestack Sessions that came out with Stronger – we're releasing another 6 songs as well and we did a lot of the covers people request on tour, so there's that, and we'll probably do it again.
Insider.com: When you look at a song -- be it a cover, an original or something like Get Up -- what are the criteria that go into deciding it's right for you?
Kelly: One of my favorite bands is U2 – I love that they have a sound they're recognized for, but always try new stuff and will release something like Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own, which is very bare boned. Same thing with Coldplay. They'll release Mylo Xyloto, but also Green Eyes – I love artists who have a sound but aren't afraid to try a different sound along with it. That's what I try to do with my albums, and also, that's the thing I love about covering songs as well. You get to step out of your sound and try on someone else's to see how it feels. That's how the country stuff came about. I just love music, man – and when The Cowboys came up with this, it was a no-brainer. I wanted this song to be for The Cowboys, but I also wanted people to be able to recognize that I'm a part of it because I'm so proud to be a part of it. It's a very Kelly Clarkson-esque anthem.
Insider.com: Earlier this year you returned to reality TV as a judge on ABC's Duets. You were phenomenal in that capacity. Any plans for season two?
Kelly: I don't know for certain, but I'm pretty sure we were all there to do the one [season]. I didn't realize how much I loved being a part of that whole process of helping develop other artists. I'm having so much fun with Jordan [Meredith] – she's coming on the road with me and then we're going to get her feet wet in the studio. Find out what kind of sound she wants. Same with Jason [Farol]. We're hooking him up with some writers. I love my own career, but the best part of that show for me was figuring out that I could have just as much fun helping other artists make their dreams come true. I know that sounds cheesy but it's true.
Insider.com: Since you loved it so much are you open to joining another reality show?
Kelly: I'll be honest, it took up a whole heckuva lot of my time. I don't mind working with other artists on the side, but a TV show is pretty demanding – and I've done two of them now, so I would know [laughs]. I couldn't make it around the whole world on this tour because of Duets. I'm only doing Australia and Ireland and England because the TV thing took up so much time. I don't know if I'm willing to sacrifice Asia and South America and all the other place I love to tour to do a TV [show]. I just don't know if that's worth it. You said you're a fan, so you know that about me. I don't know if I'm willing to give that up. But I do thoroughly enjoy helping other artists out, so I kind of feel like God put me in that situation to open my eyes to that.
Insider.com: Well, if a longterm reality show gig isn't in the cards, how about a guest spot on your buddy Reba McEntire's new ABC sitcom, Malibu Country?
Kelly: [laughs] I told her I want to come on! Her mother (played by Lily Tomlin) in it is this pothead hippie and I want to play a pothead hippie character with her! That would be so much fun! I love the show, it's super funny and Reba was excited about that idea. Plus, she's a huge Cowboys fan too, so she's just as excited that I'm a part of Get Up as I am!
I would buy the crap out of a covers album!
Just found out he is 6ft 5....LAWD!!!!! He has been keeping busy since his return. I love how on point he is in interviews always mentions - make a splash. Sweet Lia, will hopefully get used to interviews by the time Rio comes around.
Lindsay Lohan may be teaming up with Lady Gaga for an upcoming music video (scandalous!) but might she be putting out some tunes of her own soon? E! News caught up with the Liz & Dick star at will.i.am's album wrap party to see if the duo had collaborated on any sure-to-be Top 40 hits.
"I'm not. He didn't ask me," LiLo told us with her signature throaty laugh when asked whether she appears on the album. "Explain that."
"She was filming," will quickly retorted.
"I was filming and I had other things to handle," Lindsay let him off the hook (cough cough, what other things, L.L.?!) "So maybe the next one. Maybe he'll do my next one."
But we might not even have to wait that long for what we hope will be, "Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father) Part 2."
"Or after this listening party, I'll find out what we're missing and then we'll record a song tomorrow," will suggested, with Lindsay cutting in: "And then we'll add s--t to it, yes!"
Check the video to see the duo discuss the album #willpower and watch Lindsay mention that she just arrived from The Canyons set.

so, that finale, eh?
Just days before "Cosmopolis" opens in limited release, star Robert Pattinson has joined the cast of Werner Herzog's indie "Queen of the Desert," which will star Naomi Watts as English writer Gertrude Bell.
Pic will chronicle Bell's life as a writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer and political attache for the British Empire. One of the first women to graduate from Oxford at the turn of the 20th century, she traveled through the Middle East, defining the borders of Iraq, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
Pattinson is attached to play T.E. Lawrence, a British Army officer whose writing earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia, on whom David Lean's classic 1962 epic is based. Lawrence was a good friend to Bell over the years, as the duo helped establish the Hashemite dynasties in Jordan and Iraq.
Cassian Elwes and Nick Raslan (Herzog's "Rescue Dawn") are producing the pic, which is aiming to start production in late fall.
Outside of the "Twilight" franchise that catapulted him to fame, Pattinson has avoided blockbusters to work on challenging indie projects with acclaimed directors. After wrapping Francis Lawrence's adaptation of "Water for Elephants" and the lusty period pic "Bel Ami," Pattinson chose to work with David Cronenberg on "Cosmopolis," which opens Friday. Thesp is set to star opposite Guy Pearce in David Michod's Aussie drama "The Rover," as well as the indie thriller "Mission: Blacklist," which chronicles the hunt for Saddam Hussein.
so so happy for him, omg
By Maria Konnikova - CriminalElement.com
I'd like to get something off my chest. It's been bugging me for a very, very long time. Sherlock Holmes is not a sociopath. He is not even a "high-functioning sociopath," as the otherwise truly excellent BBC Sherlock has styled him (I take the words straight from Benedict Cumberbatch's mouth). There. I've said it.
When Cumberbatch calls himself a sociopath, he is responding to a taunt from a police officer: Psychopath! "Do your research," his Holmes urges. "Don't call a person a psychopath when what he really is is a sociopath."
I love the series. I love Cumberbatch. I really do. And while I understand completely how effective the exchange is -- how snappy it sounds, how intelligent and witty it makes Holmes seem -- it makes me cringe.
First of all, psychopaths and sociopaths are the exact same thing. There is no difference. Whatsoever. Psychopathy is the term used in modern clinical literature, while sociopathy is a term that was coined by G. E. Partridge in 1930 to emphasize the disorder's social transgressions and that has since fallen out of use. That the two have become so mixed up in popular usage is a shame, and that Sherlock perpetuates the confusion all the more so. And second of all, no actual psychopath-or sociopath, if you (or Holmes) will-would ever admit to his psychopathy.
According to Robert Hare, creator of the standard diagnostic tool for psychopathic personality disorder and one of the world's leading experts on the topic, psychopathy is characterized by four major factors, or groups of traits: the interpersonal, the affective, the lifestyle, and the antisocial. Into the first bucket fall such traits as glibness and superficiality, grandiosity, pathological deception, and manipulative cunning; into the second, characteristics like lack of guilt or remorse, shallow affect, lack of empathy, and a failure to accept responsibility for actions; the third, proneness to boredom, a parasitic lifestyle, and a lack of long-term goals coupled with impulsivity; and the fourth, poor control of behavior, childhood problems, breaking of parole (or other conditional release), and criminal versatility. Oh, and there are two other traits that don't fall into any category but are important nonetheless: sexual promiscuity and numerous short-term relationships.
So how does Holmes stack up against this picture? And why has he been termed psychopathic so often-and so uncontestedly? The answer to the second question, I'd venture to guess, has something to do with the detective's apparent coldness and his calculating nature, coupled with his vast intellect. So before we begin to tackle the other issues, let's address those. . . .
First, coldness. Indeed, that seems to mesh with "shallow affect, lack of empathy." But Holmes's coldness is not the coldness of a psychopath. There are several fundamental differences. First, the psychopath is cold because he is incapable of being otherwise-hence, the element of lacking guilt or remorse. A psychopath doesn't experience feelings the same way we do. The things that excite us, trouble us, make us happy do virtually nothing for him. In fact, psychopaths are often used in studies of emotion for that precise reason. We can compare their reactions to non-psychopathic reactions (both behaviorally and neurally) to learn more about how and why emotion affects us-and why the sociopath is as he is.
Holmes's coldness is nothing of the sort. It's not that he doesn't experience any emotion. It's that he has trained himself to not let emotions cloud his judgment-something that he repeats often to Watson. In "The Sign of Four," recall Holmes's reaction to Mary Morstan: "I think she is one of the most charming young ladies I ever met." He does find her charming, then. But that's not all he says. "But love is an emotional thing, and whatever is emotional is opposed to that true cold reason which I place above all things," Holmes continues. Were Sherlock a psychopath, none of those statements would make any sense whatsoever. Not only would he fail to recognize both Mary's charm and its potential emotional effect, but he wouldn't be able to draw the distinction he does between cold reason and hot emotion. Holmes's coldness is learned. It is deliberate. It is a constant self-correction (he notes Mary is charming, then dismisses it; he's not actually unaffected in the initial moment, only once he acknowledges it does he cast aside his feeling).
What's more, Holmes's coldness lacks the related elements of no empathy, no remorse, and failure to take responsibility. For empathy, we need look no further than his reaction to Watson's wound in "The Three Garridebs," ("You're not hurt, Watson? For God's sake, say that you are not hurt!") -- or his desire to let certain criminals walk free, if they are largely guiltless in his own judgment.
For remorse, consider his guilt at dragging Watson into trouble when the situation is too much (and his apology for startling him into a faint in "The Empty House." Witness: "I owe you a thousand apologies. I had no idea that you would be so affected." A sociopath does not apologize).
For responsibility, think of the multiple times Holmes admits of error whenever one is made, as, for instance, in the "Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax," when he tells Watson, "Should you care to add the case to your annals, my dear Watson, it can only be as an example of that temporary eclipse to which even the best-balanced mind may be exposed."
So much for affect. And what of intelligence, that other contributing factor? That one is easy. Simply put, intelligence has nothing whatsoever to do with sociopathy. That, too, is a common myth. As Hare puts it, "Some psychopaths are bright, others less so." And numerous studies have shown that the correlation between standard measures of intelligence and levels of psychopathy are, at best, incredibly small. That settles that.
Moving on to lifestyle, it becomes clear that Holmes drifts even further from the psychopathic picture. Of the listed qualities, the only one that could apply is proneness to boredom. We know that when Holmes is not on a case, he is likely to seek stimulation in other, somewhat less healthy pursuits. But surely that alone is not enough to make a psychopath. (You have to score at least 30 points on Hare's scale to qualify.)
For, alone it would be. We've already dealt with the affect dimension -- and as for the final two, they are so far from the Sherlock Holmes persona that they hardly bear mention. Flagrant violation of societal rules, like poor behavioral control, delinquency, and parole violations? We don't know much about Holmes's childhood, true, but he has no such ungovernable impulses as an adult. He can be accused of indoor firearm use, but not much more. As for sexual promiscuity and numerous short-term relationships? That honor is far more likely to go to the good Dr. Watson, the self-proclaimed conqueror of females over many nations and three separate continents.
But the most compelling evidence is simply this. Sherlock Holmes is not a cold, calculating, self-gratifying machine. He cares for Watson. He cares for Mrs. Hudson. He most certainly has a conscience (and as Hare says, if nothing else, the "hallmark [of a sociopath] is a stunning lack of conscience"). In other words, Holmes has emotions-and attachments-like the rest of us. What he's better at is controlling them-and only letting them show under very specific circumstances.
So let me say it one more time, just to get it out of my system: Sherlock Holmes is not any kind of sociopath. Not even close.
There. I feel better now.

This always bugged me about the BBC show, tbh. XD
From defining the word Idol for an entire generation to a cascade of hits, Kelly Clarkson has already had a legendary career. She’s had number one albums and number one songs, and has sold over 20 million albums worldwide – making her one of the most successful reality show contestants of all time. But that’s not what defines Kelly. Kelly’s artistry and vocals are what bring power to her music and what motivates her to keep going.
Clarkson was an easy choice to team up with the Cowboys. After all, when you’re from Fort Worth, there’s only one team you can cheer for. So Kelly and the Cowboys got together to create a song that we can all sing along to. When Pepsi first approached Kelly about writing the song, she was so excited she wrote the lyrics that same night. From one Cowboys fan to another: GET UP!
this song slaysT. the Texan California Gurls/Empire State Of Mind tbh
“Jaws,” the iconic shark attack thriller from 1975, appears this week for the first time on Blu-ray. In related, but indubitably bigger news, we’ve just uncovered the 20-second deleted scene that director Steven Spielberg never meant for you to see.
While the Blu-ray release showcases an all-new, digitally remastered picture, the set won’t include this very special feature. Check it out, exclusive on Film.com:
Hope you're enjoying your summer as much as this guy
1. This blind item actually touches on the themes of two recent blind items: One where a young celebrity is dealing with mental health issues; and one where management tries to help a celebrity in trouble. In this case, we’re talking about a young performer. Not too young. Old enough to vote. Old enough to make her own business decisions. She is unhealthy and she is acting out and self-medicating. Her mom – who has managed her career for years – sat down with her to express her concerns. She told her that she needed to tame her public antics, and she asked her to spend some time out of the spotlight getting physically and emotionally well. The daughter’s response? “You’re fired!” Mom and daughter have not spoken for three weeks, and the daughter continues to spiral downward. Blind Gossip

2. This married actor tried to reheat an affair with a former costar. The costar – who was a rising starlet when they worked together – had originally seduced him on set. But now she is attached to a younger, hotter star, and wants nothing to do with the married actor. When she turned him down, he opted to go for his back up play – a strpipper that cost him a previous engagement. Hollywood Dame

3. These young performers are both very hot. We told you earlier this year that a new fake relationship would be starting up in August. Well, guess what? It’s August! The relationship is starting! Here’s how it’s going to go down: There has been some buzz over the past month. Photo op together in the next two weeks. “We’re just friends!” Fangirls breathe a sigh of relief. Pretend sneaking in and out of clubs, restaurants, and each other’s homes. Tabloids ask “Are they a couple?”. More denials. More photo ops. Dates, hand holding, a “secret” photo of an intimate moment. The fangirls go wild! They finally “confess” that they are dating. Milk the publicity. Breakup by end of year. Blind Gossip

CoverGirl just announced they’ve named Janelle Monáe as their newest face, Vogue reports. Monáe’s beauty feels very natural, effortless and refreshing so it’s wonderful to see her acknowledged by the corporate beauty industry.
The 26 year-old singer opened up to Vogue about her new role as spokesperson, even sharing the Covergirl products she uses on herself:
“The singer, who does her own makeup for most major performances, has already started experimenting with CoverGirl’s Lash Blast Mascara. “I keep my eyes pretty simple but I like to make [my lashes] a little darker and thicker,” she says. She’s also been dipping into the company’s highly pigmented Lip Perfection line—introduced to her by makeup artist and CoverGirl global creative design director Pat McGrath on the Los Angeles set of her first print campaign two months ago. “She’s not only one of the most talented people in the universe but she’s also one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet,” says Monáe of bonding instantly with McGrath—who provided a quick solution to her mic-swiping lipstick quandary. “She told me to do the whole lip liner thing first so that it stains my mouth and makes the color last,” she says, before adding with a laugh: “Thank you, Pat!”
Monáe looks forward to inspiring women to find their own beauty and strength, saying: “I believe in the idea of every woman finding their own beauty superpowers. I want to help redefine what it means to be a strong woman in the music and fashion worlds.”
She joins Pink as one of the newer faces of CoverGirl. No details have been released on when her ad will debut.

Perhaps the next reality show that Jennifer Lopez should star on is Survivor.
“I live by the mantra that God doesn’t give you anything you can’t handle,” says the former American Idol judge and PEOPLE’s 2011 Most Beautiful, who, according to InStyle’s September cover story (on newsstands this Friday), has reached a crossroads in her life – a result of her 2011 split from her husband of seven years, Marc Anthony.
“It’s not until something bad or difficult happens that you really get to grow,” says Lopez, 43. And, at that point, “You realize: There’s no reason to be terrified of things. Either way I’m going to be OK.” The magazine reports that as a single mother of 4-year-old twins Max and Emme, Lopez will now concentrate on being an entertainer, an entrepreneur and a self-proclaimed romantic who mixes business with pleasure. ”At this point in my life,” she says, “I’ve learned I can really survive things.”
The secret to success, she states, is in “finding balance … You have to know what makes you happy – so your life is what you always dreamed it could be.” And while she is not quoted in the profile about boyfriend Casper Smart, 25, he is described in the article as sitting out one of her concerts at a soundboard. Speaking generally, she says, “The most important quality the man in my life should have is that he is sweet. I like the good guys. She also addresses readers’ questions, including one about love, and what specifically are the highs and lows that come with being a romantic.
“The hard part is that you never stop believing in love,” responds Lopez. “You never stop. But that’s also the best part. You never stop believing, and you never, never give up.”
Celebrities know they’ve grabbed a piece of pop culture when the internet spreads stories that you’ve gone to the great yonder. Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch Kris Jenner can now add herself to that list.
On Monday evening, Twitter was aflutter with the rumor that Jenner had died and daughter Kim Kardashiantook to her account to squelch the false news.
“The awkward moment when ‘RIP Kris Jenner’ is trending yet I’m the phone with her! LOL,” the reality star and burgeoning actress tweets.
What may have caused the Kardashian mom’s purported death rumors?
Chad Johnson's wife of 6 weeks has filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned.
Evelyn Lozada filed legal docs moments ago in Florida, claiming her marriage is "irretrievably broken."
The trigger for the divorce was the domestic violence incident over the weekend, in which Chad Johnson was arrested after allegedly head-butting her during an argument.
Evelyn claimed she found a receipt for a box of condoms in his car.
According to the divorce docs, the couple had a prenup -- but that won't be a big deal since the marriage was shorter than Kim Kardashian's.
FYI -- Evelyn and Chad JUST got married on July 4th in St. Maarten ... and the whole ceremony was recorded for a VH1 reality show (VH1 has since pulled the plug on that ... for obvious reasons).
AS SOUTH KOREA’S MOST SOCIAL CELEBRITY, SIWON CHOI IS ACCUSTOMED TO ATTENTION. NOW THE ACTOR, MODEL, SINGER, AND CROWN PRINCE OF K-POP MEETS HIS MATCH:
The Lens of Karl Lagerfeld
What was it like to work with Karl?
SC Have you ever felt touched and impressed at the same time? I was so impressed by his nonstop exploration and his effort to try new things. I was impressed with his comfort, friendliness, and caring heart. We come from different backgrounds, but both of us like to try new things, so we had the same goal in mind.
You’ve modeled for Armani, Burberry, Lacoste, and other brands internationally. What is your relationship to the fashion industry in Korea?
SC I am very interested in fashion and get a lot of invitations. My schedule doesn’t allow me to attend most of the fashion weeks, but I try my best. I have a close relationship with a Korean designer named woo Young Mi. I like and respect her a lot, and she gives me a lot of good advice.
Having so many Twitter followers, how conscious are you of social media? What is your approach to using it as a tool to communicate?
SC I am thankful to all of the fans that give me attention. I think they like me because I share a lot of things online, like humorous photos and comments. I hope to make the world a better place with my fans, starting with just the little things. I think there are times when our words can cause trouble, so I try not to post any personal emotions on twitter.
What do you make of K-Pop’s current popularity internationally?
SC Honestly, I feel great, proud, and thankful. When a foreigner asks me about Korea they usually talk about famous food, like Kimchi and Bulgogi [laughs]. But now people are more aware of k-Pop, and I would like to think SUPER Junior is the leader. I’d like to thank all K-Pop lovers.
Do you have any dream of crossing over into American media and pop culture? Does anything intimidate you about finding fame in the U.S.?
SC I would love to cross over into the states, but nothing has been confirmed about my activities there. If I had any concerns about crossing over, maybe it would be jealousy from my Asian and Korean fans…just kidding! I would love to work in the states, and I would do it with all of my passion.
Have you experienced any downside to fame?
SC Sometimes I feel sad, but it isn’t difficult. As an entertainer you have a clear understanding of what you gain and what you lose. Because i am always exposed to the public, sometimes I can’t be myself. i get worried and sad when my family members are the ones hurt by what I do.
What is your philosophy on style?
SC Confidence! Have confidence in your style. Don’t be timid, show yourself!

I don't really know what's going on here. Apparently Harry's private life is now being directed by Peter Greenaway or something.
The short-lived marriage of Basketball Wivesstar Evelyn Lozada and NFL player Chad 'Ochocinco' Johnson may have come to a violent conclusion on Saturday when he was arrested for allegedly physically attacking her, and now RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that she was right to suspect him of cheating after a Boston woman claims she had a heated affair with the former New England Patriots player.
Beverly Shiner, 30, made the groundbreaking revelation to RadarOnline.com that she dated Johnson from January until May this year, during which time Evelyn was elbow-deep inwedding plans – and she claims that the unabashed adulterer didn't even try to hide his deceit.
After first making contact by following him on Twitter, Shiner claims that 34-year-old Chad sent a personal message to her with his number inviting her out for dinner.
"I Googled him before we met and saw he was engaged, but at the time there were reports that she had broken it off because she thought he was cheating, so I assumed they had split up," she told Radar.
But when she got over to his Foxborough, Massachusetts, home she found women's toiletries in the bathroom and realized they were clearly still very much a couple.
"While I was there he called Evelyn and asked if she could order a pizza to be delivered for him, and even had her pay for it on her credit card," Shiner told Radar. "I thought it was odd and wondered if she was really his fiancee or just a secretary."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, last weekend's altercation between the newly-weds, who tied the knot on July 4, started when the couple was driving home from dinner and Evelyn found a receipt for condoms in the car. The argument turned physical, Lozada told cops, and her husband head-butted her! The six-time Pro Bowl receiver was arrested by Davie, Florida police and released from jail on $2,500 bond Sunday after being charged with simple domestic battery, a misdemeanor.
Mother-of-two Shiner revealed that despite her initial suspicions she still slept with Chad that fateful night in January, and alleges she went on to have a relationship that lasted over three months.
"When he was at the Super Bowl (on February 5) in Indianapolis, he was texting me and saying he was missed me," she confessed, even though Evelyn was at the big game with him along with his children.
After the Patriots lost to the New York Giants and Chad's season -- and ultimately his career with the team -- was over, he went back to Miami to live with Lozada, and even though Beverly didn't see him for another month, she claims he continued to text and say how much he wanted to be with her.
"We would get together when he was in back up in Boston," she said, explaining how she would follow social media fanatic Evelyn on Twitter to find out when she was in and out of town.
"She eventually blocked me after she read a reply I tweeted to (Basketball Wives costar) Kenya Bell after they had had fight over kitten heels, I said Evelyn was trashy and I couldn't believe 'he was marrying that.'"
The affair finally came to a head in the beginning of May, Shiner claims, when after spending a passionate night together, Beverly was heading back over and he didn't reply to her texts or calls.
"He had asked me to come over so I drove there and knocked on his door and he didn’t answer even though I could hear his X Box playing. Then I texted him the next day and he didn’t apologize," she told Radar.
"I got upset and told him, 'You are not the guy I thought you were,’ to which he replied that he had been sleeping and warned me, 'You’re overstepping your boundaries a little bit. I’m not your man, keep your comments to yourself.’"
Offended by his behavior and tone, Beverly was shocked by Number 85's lack of "respect and common courtesy," and the couple stopped keeping in contact. She eventually texted him later that month after it was reported that he had his wallet stolen but again he didn't respond.
"He just stopped talking to me because he didn’t like the comments I made," explained Shiner, who is adamant that it was more than just a light-hearted fling.
"It wasn’t just a one night thing, he always said he wanted to move in with me, and said if he had I’d be pregnant by then. He kept asking if I wanted to have more kids.
"Once, when I was at his house, I asked what would happen if Evelyn walked in right now, and he said she wouldn’t care.
"He said, 'I’m not doing anything different than what every other man is doing,' he thinks it is fine to cheat. I feel he was completely disrespectful and he led me on," she said bitterly.
The allegations of his pre-marital philandering tops off a very rough few days for the player formerly known as Ochocinco, whose contract with the Miami Dolphins was terminated by the team within 24 hours of the domestic abuse scandal.
Lea Michele was pictured filming scenes for Glee in the west village section of New York City last week. She was also looking great as she arrived to the set. Lea was spotted wearing a sweater with the trendy high-low hemline, accessorized with a pair of Chanel sunglasses and a Chanel pocketbook, as she made her way onto the set.
