Matt Lauer, gangnam style

by leslie on May 3, 2013

Matt Lauer and Psy photo MattLauer_zpsdb309567.jpgSouth Korean super-star, Psy, showed up on the “Today Show” set this morning (Friday, May 3) at New York City’s Rockefeller Center and persuaded beleaguered host, Matt Lauer, to try a little gangnam style.  Lauer’s been dealing with fallout the past few weeks following the publication of  Brian Stelter’s Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV. Stelter alleges that former “Today Show” co-host, Ann Curry, was ousted from the show through machinations by Lauer and others. Lauer appeared on Jay Leno’s “The Tonight Show” last night, saying simply that “This has been an interesting year,” maintaining that the “Today Show” is still a contender in the morning TV shows ratings war. Lauer has anchored the NBC show for 18 years

Meanwhile, if Matt Lauer is fighting to stay on top, Psy’s star keeps rising. His trademark “Gangnam Style” is the number one hit in YouTube’s history with over 1 billion views, he released “Gentleman”  last month, live-streaming it to a YouTube audience of 150,000, South Korea named him “Tourism Ambassador” last month, and today Bluewater publishers announced the publication of “Fame: Psy,” a comic book/graphic novel style biography. Psy, whose real name is Park  Jae-sang, is married to Yoo Hye-yeon. They have twin daughters.


And the winners for best fashion are…

by leslie on January 17, 2012

The Golden Globes fashion shone this year with lots of bright colors and beautiful gowns. Zooey Deschanel had a manicure done to match her dress, Paula Patton and Maria Menounos were radiant in bright yellow, Michelle Williams and Charlize Theron were among those wearing a headband, more than one gown featured feathers, trains or ruffles, and there were a bevy of dresses in neutral colors too. So, who better to ask who wore the loveliest dresses than the folks who work so hard photographing the red carpet arrivals for us? (Plus, that way someone else has the tough job of choosing their favorites.) Our photographers’ picks for best dressed include:

Angelina Jolie at the 2012 Golden Globes
