YouTuber Brendan Jordan Models Clothing Line For American Apparel

19 December 2014 9:11 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Brendan Jordan knows how to dance, and apparently he knows how to model, too. The 15-year-old vlogger who recently rose to digital stardom after dancing in the background of a local newscast has become a model for American Apparel.

Jordan became an internet sensation back in October 2014 when he was caught “diva-bombing” to some Lady Gaga-inspired moves behind a news reporter in his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. The video now boasts over 3 million views. Jordan’s quick succession to fame has allowed him to appear on The Queen Latifah show, get a shout-out from Lady Gaga herself, and appear at the December 8 DigiTour event in Las Vegas.

Now, he’s the newest, fabulous face of American Apparel’s latest ad campaign. Jordan is seen posing in four different, brightly-colored outfits giving plenty of attitude (his modeling isn’t too shabby, either). The full text from the ad’s »

19 December 2014 6:39 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Just call her Santa Claus. Queen Latifah is making sure that the laid-off staff of her cancelled talk show is being taken care of for Christmas. I just got word that Latifah is using her own money to pay the show's crew through the holidays even though production has officially shut down. (While original episodes of the show will run through March, the production crew is no longer necessary.) It was announced about a month ago that The Queen Latifah Show had been cancelled after two seasons. Produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, the show included a roster of high-profile guests, including Bill Clinton and Nicole Kidman.

Queen Latifah Address Talk Show Being Cancelled

8 December 2014 12:25 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Ever since Oprah ended her reign as daytime talk show queen, many jumped at the chance to fill in those shoes. This included rapper/actress turned talk show host, Queen Latifah. She has been hosting a reboot of her previous daytime talk show The Queen Latifah Show. The show dealt with issues she felt passionate about, as well as general human interest shows. However, much like the original version it fell short of high enough ratings and was cancelled. Remaining episodes will air through out early 2015. Here is what she had to say about the news that came from late November.

As I look back on it, I’m in shock at how many people have come on the show, supported the show and all the great things. I’ve been able to spend other people’s money to change people’s lives, which is the best thing to be able to do, »
