On our list of one-name entertainers with show-stopping style, Cher certainly holds her own. From the midriff-baring costumes she sported on "The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour" to the larger-than-life Bob Mackie headpieces she's donned as a solo act, Cher isn't afraid of taking risks.
The "Goddess of Pop's" unapologetic style has been remixed by pop princesses like Katy Perry, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. While we may gasp at these modern fashion statements, Cher's philosophy on image puts it all into perspective: "Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great."
So in celebration of Cher's 67th birthday on Monday (May 20), we are taking a look back at her unforgettable fashion moments. Vote for your favorite in the slideshow below.

Lady Gaga is always ready for her close-up. It's been over two months since mama Monster's hip injury and it finally looks like she's fully recovered and back to her offbeat ways. Leave it to Gaga to wear crazy high platform heels after undergoing surgery. The singer was spotted strutting through New York City last night in a one-shoulder black dress, glittery retro sunglasses and...a furry yellow accessory? We won't ask.

Good afternoon and happy hump day!
Yesterday I mentioned Tricia “Six” Helfer’s new series Killer Women and now you can watch the show’s first trailer below! (It looks good, but it would be even better if Katee Sackhoff joined the cast.)
While I’m eating popcorn and watching HBO’s Behind the Candelabra, Liberace’s real life boy toy Scott Thorson (author of the book that the movie is based on) will be watching from the big house. I didn’t know jails had premium channels.

Some celebrities may be ridiculously rich nowadays, but they weren't always that well-off. Before they won the fame-and-fortune jackpot, many of them made even less money at their entry level jobs than you make at your normal-person job. Observe:
The future Mrs. Theroux was a telemarketer in her heyday, a career that pays an average of $30,000 a year. She also worked for some time as a bike messenger. Couriers make about $27,000 a year.
Pitt dabbled in many odd jobs before becoming the superstar he is today; one of them was limo driver. Chauffeurs make, on average, $30,000 a year.
Before Posh was, well, posh, she was an extra in small television productions in England. Extras make roughly $31,000 a year.
The rap mogul started out folding shirts at Gap. Retail salespeople make about $21,000 a year.

Though he may have a dedicated army of Beliebers worldwide, turns out Americans are united in their dislike for Justin Bieber as evidenced by a new music-oriented poll conducted by Public Policy Polling (Ppp).
Pics: Who Are the Most Trusted Movie Stars in America?
But Bieber was the only artist who had a majority unfavorability rating across all party lines – a majority of Democrats (23-54), Republicans (17-52), and independents (18-56) all reported negative views of the pop superstar.
...Could his antics earlier this year -- which had some speculating he was having a "meltdown" -- be to blame?
We’re told that the Cannes Film Festival is supposed to center around movies (or something?), but we know better. It’s all about the hot styles worn by the most glam goddesses in showbiz as they strut their stuff down the red carpet!
The international summit of film makers gives actresses of every stripe the chance to get daring, and the warm beach-y weather gives them a chance to get revealing. Put the two together, and it’s a recipe for some killer outfits. Over the years, celebs like Eva Longoria, Kristen Stewart, Halle Berry and Michelle Williams took the plunge with low cut gowns.
But you don’t just have to an actress to attend! Beyonce, Cassie and Janet Jackson have all done their part to add a extra dose of “Ooh la la” to the French Riviera with a high fashion wardrobe. And then of course there »

What could well be Steven Soderbergh’s final feature, Behind the Candelabra, is just days away from its premiere out in Cannes, and I can’t wait to hear the early reactions from the Croisette.
It’s somewhat surreal to think that Soderbergh could be hanging up his hat this year and going into retirement. And it’s even more unbelievable to think that none of the studios wanted to work with him on the picture. But, thankfully, HBO were more than willing to step in. And fortunately for us, eOne are giving the film a theatrical release here in the UK.
We’ve already been treated to a great new trailer for the Liberace biopic recently. And now we’ve got not only another new trailer to share, but also the glittery new UK quad poster.

The concept hardly sounds like a hit: a dance contest for unknowns often doing unusual dances. Yet Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," which launches its 10th season Tuesday and Wednesday, May 14 and 15, continues to tap into what eludes other dance shows: the purity of the art.
"There is no question they have not seen it all before," Nigel Lythgoe, executive producer and judge, tells Zap2it. "That is the joy of seeing dance develop. I do believe every season these kids get better and better. The one thing dancers have [over singers] is if you are tone-deaf, you still sound as bad as you did three or four years ago. If you are a dancer and train hard for three or four years, there is improvement."
"Everyone says, 'How are you going to tweak it?' " Lythgoe says. "The only way I would tweak it is possibly moving results to »
Disney villains may get a bad rap, but they also get fab shoes. Israeli-born footwear designer Kobi Levi has created three unique heels featuring Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty and the Evil Queen from Snow White. Kobi counts Lady Gaga among his celeb fans—she wore a pair of his kicks in her "Born This Way" video. The whimsical kicks feature shiny leather exteriors with the wicked ladies faces painted on the insole. Since the drawings are hiding by the foot, Kobi made sure each unique personality was captured in the actually shoe design. The most obvious being the Evil Queen version who has a golden crown ankle straps. No doubt, Mother Monster will be »
So You Think You Can Dance returns tonight, and what can I say? You’d have to be out of your mind to dislike this show. It’s filled with amazing talent that changes wildly from year to year, and the show’s celebration of dance culture is — for a Fox show going into its tenth season — alarmingly cool.
Today let’s psych ourselves for the new season with a quick lesson in the show’s best perks. Here are the five best things about So You Think You Can Dance.
5. The weirdo auditioners aren’t trainwrecks (usually).
Unlike American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance routinely offers up strange auditioners who, while perhaps not versatile enough for the Top 10, are interesting enough that we don’t pity their bizarreness. In fact, it’s the unconventional dancers who make Sytycd something of an educational experience. Take for instance Princess Lockeroo, »

While Lady Gaga's tour rider includes everything from "two large fluffy lavender towels" to "a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair," fellow pop star Selena Gomez's is far less fussy. Speaking to MTV about her upcoming Stars Dance World Tour, the 20-year-old "Come & Get It" singer said she only asks for three things on her tour rider. "Incense, pickles always," Gomez said of her low-key demands. "I don't know. I actually have a boring rider. I'll be honest. . . ramen. That's what I have! I'm [...] »

The New York Times wrote a great article about the brilliance of Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes. The piece, "Network TV Is Broken. So How Does Shonda Rhimes Keep Making Hits?", starts out with this stellar quote from Rhimes (to the Scandal writing staff), “I love that the gay White House chief of staff is threatening to pretend the first lady is a closeted lesbian, it is so wrong. In the best way.”

Turning up Thursday night at jazz trumpeter Brian Newman's gig at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City, the pop superstar reportedly wowed a small crowd when she joined the musician for an impromptu rendition of "Someone to Watch Over Me."

Lady Gaga has made her first appearance on stage since her hip surgery. The 'Marry The Night' singer was forced to cancel the remaining dates of her 'Born This Way Ball' tour earlier this year after suffering a labral tear on her right hip, which required an operation and left her wheelchair-bound. The 27-year-old singer surprised the crowd at jazz singer Brian Newman's gig at the Rose Bar in Gramercy Park Hotel, New York, last Thursday (09.05.13) by joining him on stage for a rendition of his track 'Watch Over Me'. Newman was thrilled to perform with Gaga and took to his Twitter page to share his excitement. He tweeted: 'Thanks to the 1&only @ladygaga for coming out to @GPHhotel »

According to a public poll, though, Justin Timberlake would make a way better President than the other, more annoying Justin -- Justin Bieber, of course. Why people think it's such an important thing to determine which singing celebrity would make the very best President of the United States, nobody really knows, but this is a thing that was actually researched -- Justin Timberlake came in first, with Adele at number 2, and followed by Beyonce. Justin Bieber, incidentally, was ranked among the study's lowest, but that's probably not too surprising. Can you even imagine what a country led by Bieber would be like? No -- please don't. Let's just forget about all that. But hey, there's good news -- these are only preliminary results, so it could change. Who even knows -- maybe Lady Gaga would be the most suitable President, or gosh. Even Lindsay Lohan. Wouldn't that just be dandy*? --Sarah Taylor *No. »
