Socialite Life’s 10 Favorite ‘Glee’ Performances Of All Time [VIDEOS]

December 7th, 2011 // 2 Comments

Glee recently hit a huge milestone with their 300th performance a few weeks ago, and while even the most fanatic Gleek will admit that they haven’t all been hits we thought it’d be worth it to revisit the 10 best performances so far. But how does one choose the best performance when you could argue that even the terrible ones are great because it’s tucked in such an amazing show? You sacrifice. Plus no list of the best performances can be comprehensive, because such a list would vary according to what you value.

Is it the emotional charge of the song or the fancy footwork that makes a performance the best, and what about the songs with outstanding vocal performances (everything in the Amber Riley catalog )? This list takes a holistic approach to its rankings, considering everything from the context to the visuals to vocals, and this selection represents the best all things considered. If it helps to see this as the 10 best performances in no particular order then go ahead. Still number one may shock you, so look ahead to see if your favorite made the list!

Find out what our 10 favorite Glee performances are after the jump, and then launch the gallery to check out pics of Chris Colfer, Heather Morris, Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera and the cast of the hit show Glee, dress as characters from the movie Grease on the set of their show filming in Los Angeles.

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: Nick Ayler By Richard Gerst For Pin Up Boys Vol. 2

December 7th, 2011 // 2 Comments

Just over a year ago, the talented newcomer Richard Gerst shot the gorgeous Nick Ayler for DNA magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive issue and it became one of DNA‘s top selling issues ever recorded. Part of the successful formula was Ayler’s fresh Hollywood-actor appeal and Gerst’s willingness to take his homo-sensual photography vibe out onto the streets of New York in broad daylight.

But the PR effects – although positive – were a bit limiting -in that they both wanted to “reach higher” than the genre. Gerst waited for the right opportunity in order to . . . as he puts it: “flex some creative muscle”.

They have delivered. They have just released a beach editorial collaboration shot in East Hampton, New York, with alternating pages of dune paths and skyline complimenting Ayler’s form in Gerst’s best figurative work to date. You can catch it in the new cover story for Pin Up Boys Vol. 2.

Launch the gallery to check out the stunning pics, a few of which are exclusive to Socialite Life.

Last night’s episode of Glee marked the return of Chord Overstreet‘s character Sam aka Trout Mouth.

Rachel and Finn discover that Sam is working as a stripper. Eventually, Rachel makes her presence known by handing Sam a dollar and they take him backstage to talk.

Sam admits that he’s not happy to be working as a stripper, but hey, the money’s good and covers all the extras at home. He confesses that he does want to return to glee club, but will his parents let him? As it turns out, they’re so proud of his recent maturity, but don’t want him to miss out on his teenage years – he can go back to Lima with Rachel and Finn. Yay!

Glee is going to follow up on the Michael Jackson music from tonight’s episode, which featured “Man in the Mirror” and The Jackson 5 song “ABC,” as well as Janet Jackson’s “Control.” Yesterday, Glee creator Ryan Murphy devote a full episode of music to the King of Pop. It took time to talk the Jackson estate into the idea, but with their approval, the writers will fast track production on the episode so it will be ready to air on January 24.

The cast will shoot half of the episode before the holiday break and finish the rest in early January. TV Guide says to expect 10-12 of Jackson’s songs to be featured.

Kristen Stewart Gives The Best Bang For Movie Buck According To Forbes

December 6th, 2011 // 1 Comment

Today Forbes published their list of Best Actors for the Buck, which compiles Hollywood’s most profitable stars. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson made the top three of the list, due in part to their success with the Twilight franchise.

This is how the list was compiled. Each actor has to star in at least three non-animation movies in the last three years. Then Forbes added each actor’s upfront and backend pay on all three movies to come up with a total compensation number. Next they added up the operating income of the three movies to come up with a total operating income number and then divided total operating income by total compensation. Each return on investment number represents how much the studio is paid for every dollar invested in the star.

I’m happy they took care of the math part.

‘The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hill’s Recap – Women Who Can’t Handle Their Alcohol

December 6th, 2011 // 1 Comment

Holy wedges.  One starts out these recaps in hopes of remembering everything that happened the first 45 minutes of last night’s episode.  Then Taylor Armstrong starts speaking in tongues and you forget that Kyle Richards tried to convince us that she doesn’t Juvederm her lips (She just wants everyone to stop with the injections and plastic surgery and to “play fair”).  Sure thing, sure thing.  Can you recite the alphabet for us?  Why do your lips look so swollen?

I thought that Ken’s joke about going to Brandi’s blowjob party was so delightful, and then Taylor had to go and ruin everything.  Put the focus back on the wedding planner and Lisa talking about kicking her million dollar foot up people’s arses.  No more Taylor Armstrong, please.

Willow Smith struck a pose for photographers as she left the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City today.

Um. I’m all for individually it and stuff, but what the hell is Willow wearing? It is as if Willow dived in to a pile of clothing and this is what she ended up with. Don’t get me wrong, she’s adorable and has some wacky fashion sense, but this is a fashion misstep.
