Allow me to introduce myself: I am the only person who’s seen every single episode of Models of the Runway. Please prove me wrong in the comments. Anyway, scandale! on last night’s Project Runway: Jesse/Ping’s model, Megan, dared to open her mouth. Megan tattled on Ping for not even glancing her way let alone fitting her for the pair’s “Look For Less,” a drab skirt and top that I was sure had been pulled out of the “formalwear: kind of” pile I had in my closet during seventh grade. On Models of the Runway, the models, especially Cerri the feisty Dubliner, harped on Megan for her gross display of the ability to speak, but later on, Jesse ended up thanking Megan for her loyalty and choosing her again. Find out who went home — and which designers chose which models — after the jump. READ FULL STORY »

You’ve been there before: You’re walking down the street, and suddenly, a song from your past creeps into your head and refuses to get out. The most frustrating part? You can’t remember what song it is, or who sang it, because you’re fairly certain he went out of style with twin sets. You return home, log onto your computer, Google the lyrics, and discover you’ve got Tal Bachman on the brain. And now you’re wondering, what the heck ever happened to the guy?
Yesterday, as you must know, was the obscure national holiday known as One-Hit Wonder Day. So we’re assuming you spent the day in silent appreciation of the “She’s So High” singer, as well as folks like A-Ha, Nena and Dee-Lite. Now that the sacred holiday passed and you can return to our ordinary lives, let’s hear it: What is your favorite one-hit wonder?
I’ll go on record saying nothing compares 2 OMC’s “How Bizarre,” for sheer badness’ sake. Then again, I have a strange obsession with Shawn Mullins’ “Lullaby” and 5ive’s “When the Lights Go Out,” so maybe you shouldn’t trust my musical judgment. (P.S. Based on its spelling, shouldn’t “5ive” be pronounced “Five-ive”?) So come on, commenters! Relax, let the dogs out and tell me your favorites! Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye Aye!
Ever since The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kim Zolciak bleated the first few aborted notes of her country career last season, I knew America was in for a treat. Now her very first (not at all country) single has dropped, and to my utter shock, it is not technically the worst thing I have ever heard!
It’s…not the best thing I’ve ever heard, but “Tardy for the Party” is more lame than it is unlistenable, unlike the “music” of Heidi Montag, say, or that terrifying, hilarious cover of “Such Great Heights.”
Lyrically, though, I’m puzzled. I think most of us associate the word “tardy” with school and propriety and all, and if you’re keeping track of what time people show up, well, that’s hardly a party attitude. I’m not much of a club person — no, it’s true! — but the line “I’ll be feeling good by nine / after my third glass of wine” sort of threw me: I don’t usually associate dancefloor antics and club-going with wine per se, but if The Real Housewives franchise has taught me anything, it’s that other people don’t always think the way I think, particularly when it comes to wine drinking. (And breast management.)
Are your ears bleeding, PopWatchers? Or is this going to be your end-of-summer jam?

In what could be perceived as an attempt to be edgy or an homage to ice cream distributors (they probably don’t get enough credit), Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus pole danced on top of an ice cream cart at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday afternoon (the show airs on Fox tonight at 8 p.m.). Personally, I never dropped it like’s it hot when the ice cream truck came ’round the neighborhood; I usually just went straight for a Good Humor Chocolate Eclair bar. Call me old-fashioned. But the stripper-esque choreography, coupled with Cyrus’ questionable red-carpet attire, came off completely inappropriate and ill-advised.
What did you think of Cyrus’ performance, PopWatchers?
The Hoff's bleary-eyed appearance on The View this morning was so awkward it was a little mind-blowing. Below, a smattering of the cringe-iest moments. "Entertainment brings the world together. You know?"
Which part made you most uncomfortable?
a) His verbal assault of The View's hosts and visual assault of the audience (necklace!)
b) Women in burkas are not threatening once you realize they have Prada purses
c) People under burkas are also not scary because they have blonde hair and wear JEANS!
d) The blonde girls "singing" at the end are his 17- and 19-year-old daughters. "Bitchin."
A private-room karaoke experience, which the participants enter into knowing that they’ll consume enough alcohol to produce a hangover the following morning — or, what is technically "later this morning," by the time they finally part ways.
Origin: For the umpteenth time, an EW Happy Hour Thursday night turned into three hours at a bar, followed by three hours at a karaoke establishment, where Michael Slezak and I may or may not have dueted on Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam’s "All Cried Out." (Next time, we recreate the choreography below.)
Oh, wait, I’m sorry — I meant he lost the words to "Billie Jean." While performing for his hometown crowd in Milwaukee. And he still kept on singing. Thanks to Vote For The Worst, we’ve got yet another reason to bellow "GOOOOOOOOOOKEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYY!" to the heavens, asking how he ever made it to a top three berth on American Idol. "Enjoy."
I don’t blame you if you weren’t able to make to the end when Gokey gave up and launched into a far less taxing gospel riff in which he had his backup singers sing various combinations of "Yeah!" back at him, but I do have a few questions, P-Dubs: (1) Do you think the Idol producers actually have the cojones to broadcast footage of Gokey forgetting the words on this week’s performance show? (2) If they do, do you think it would adversely affect his voting numbers, or will it instead just hyptonize Gokey’s
minions fan base even further into doing his speed-dialing bidding? (3) Why is Gokey attempting to sing about a woman claiming he fathered her kid in the first place? And (4) Do you think this is more or less entertainingly awkward than the clip of a woman in a mini-skirt and a bikini top bum rushing Adam Lambert during his hometown visit in San Diego? (That clip is after the jump.)
