Stay tuned for a potential how-to, but for now, check out these ... Read More
SoKo knows what she wants, and she knows how to get it. When I visit her hotel room in Manhattan, the French singer/musician/actress sends everyone else out of the room and invites me to sit with her on the bed. “If I do this,” she says, “I want to be able to connect.” It’s this insistence on connection that’s won the 29-year-old so many diehard fans. Born Stéphanie Sokolinski in ... Read More
It seems wrong to say that any of these lady bands are out to pay tribute to anyone; they rock so hard on their own. But bands like Lez Zeppelin and Vag Halen are doing so much more than covering old faves—they’re out to take on the male dominated world of rock and roll, one metal band at a time.

Zendaya Coleman looked straight-up flawless at this years Oscars, rocking a stunning Vivienne Westwood gown and long natural locs. But even perfection can’t escape E! Fashion Police unscathed, and this time it was a doozy. Giuliana Rancic said Zendaya’s hair “made her feel like it smelled like patchouli…” Which is when Kathy Griffin jumped in with “or weed!” And Rancic enthusiastically agreed, “Or weed!” This ...
