Album review: Loved Me Back to Life - old meets bold
The Express Tribune Blogs - about 3 years
After a six-year absence, Canadian pop singer, Celine Dion is back with a youthful approach in her new album, Loved Me Back to Life. The songs are raw, edgy and modern with buzz centered on eclectic collaborations with Ne-Yo, Sia, Eg White and others. The pop-icon best known for her powerful and soaring vocals downshifts into a contemporary voice, one that is not immediately recognisable as Dion. Although, she pushes into riskier territory, competing with contemporary artists, the album is as powerful as ever. The songs are current, classy and still play to her strength of having one of the best voices to date. The lead single Loved Me Back To Life, written and produced by Sia, is the most drastic departure from Dion’s trademark sound making it a fitting and questionable choice at the same time. It’s a song that requires multiple listens, making the collaboration duet with Ne-Yo, Incredible a better choice for a lead single. Incredible lives up t ...

Michael Lohan Blames Samantha Ronson For Lindsay's Problems: 'She Dragged Her Down'
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
Michael Lohan says he thinks Samantha Ronson is to blame for Lindsay's downfall. In an interview with The Dirty's Nik Richie, Michael broached the topic of Ronson and Lindsay when Richie started talking about the actress' partying habits and the relationship Lindsay had with her ex, whom she began dating in 2008. Michael says the DJ used his daughter and "dragged her down." "Lindsay was in a pretty okay place at the time until she got involved with Samantha," he said, alleging Ronson received $175,000 for a photo she took of Lindsay passed out in her car. "People use Lindsay like that. And she's very susceptible... Where's Samantha now? Do you see Samantha in the press? Do you see her getting press? No! Because she's not with Lindsay anymore, that's pretty pathetic!" Read More... More on Lindsay Lohan

Huffington Post - about 4 years
In today's edition of Lindsay Lohan news, the troubled 26-year-old actress is romantically involved with a 22-year-old New York DJ by the name of Julian Cavin, reports the New York Daily News. "'Dating' may be too heavy of a word to use right now," a source who saw the pair "sucking face in front of everyone" Friday night told the Daily News. "They haven't been hooking up that long." According to another source, the two "spent all weekend together and they're seeing each other." But it wouldn't be a LiLo story without some added drama. According to the Daily News, when the red-haired actress visited her new guy at the nightclub where he works, Goldbar, "she was a mess ... She started dirty dancing [on Cavin] when he wasn’t in the [DJ] booth." An eyewitness told the Daily News that when one of Cavin's friends made an innocent comment about the two being "a cute couple," LiLo lost it and made all attempts to get her kicked out of the club.

Alexandra Holzer: New York Never Sleeps Because Noel Ashman Won't Let It! (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
New York City Nightlife 30-plus years ago danced to a different beat. The progressive change of club hopping from one place to the next hasn't switched course. A fellow New Yorker that is an entrepreneur, film producer and nightclub owner, Noel Ashman, who has been reported by The New York Post as, "One of the five most important people in New York" knows a thing or two about where the party's at. A product of the '70s, Noel grew up living in Manhattan with the Prep school attendance as a must, and he began his independence and interest in promotion and nightlife development early on. "We would get flyers printed up, maybe 100, and pass them out for the keg party. Once we hosted a party and what seemed like tens of thousands of these preppy kids just showed up along the streets. Then the cops came to shut it down," Noel tells me. He goes on to say that big names started to hear about the "noise" he was making and it spiraled upward from there. "It is important to keep t ...

Samantha Ronson Slams Paris Hilton's New DJ Career
US Magazine - over 4 years
They've run in the same social circle for nearly a decade, but Samantha Ronson isn't a fan of Paris Hilton -- especially now that the hotel heiress is following in her footsteps and becoming a DJ. "It's like, c'mon man. She's tried everything now. Just put some quality behind the sh-t that you do," Ronson tells TMZ of Hilton's new career. "Put some effort into it." PHOTOS: Paris Hilton's best bikini moments If Hilton, 31, wants to "be an actual DJ" and learn the tricks of the trade, Ronson, 34, will happily support her. "But if you're just like, 'Oh, I want to figure out how I can make more money this week,' it insults the people that work really hard at it." "It's like me calling myself a doctor from reading WebMD twice," Ronson adds.

Meredith Fineman: Dear Lindsay Lohan
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Dear Lindsay, We need to talk. For all of us. Legions of girls, such as myself, idolized you. And we miss you terribly. You were the only ginger I've found attractive. Besides Prince Harry, and maybe this one girl, Jeanine, at summer camp. You fostered a following of girls like me -- that for the first time dipped Oreos in peanut butter, and wondered if we had a long-lost twin that we would encounter and then hate and then love and then prank our parents and our nannies would fall in love. We loved you, and I think a part of me still does. Where is that girl who won back Dennis Quaid in a beautiful house in Napa? (I've never been to Napa, but I imagine it's nice and I have a babysitter and a golden retriever and not an evil witch stepmom named Meredith. Really, is that the only character named Meredith out there?) Where are the freckles? Where is this dress? Is it sitting in a closet somewhere? You're even from Long Island, and I know 16 people who know y ...

Bristol Palin On Obama’s Marriage Support: Kids Need Mom, Dad
Lez Get Real - almost 5 years
Bristol Palin It should not be surprising that Bristol Palin would actually weigh in on the issue of same-sex marriage and President Barack Obama’s statements in support of it. Of course, doing so simply means that she is living as a hypocrite and believes that others should do as she says, but not as she does. Palin wrote on Facebook that: “While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home.” We would all like now to know why she did not marry Levi Johnston if she truly believed that. This is, after all, a young woman who had a child out of wedlock, unintentionally, with a boy that she has not marrie ...

Bristol Palin Slammed For Anti Gay Marriage Comments
Daily Gossip - almost 5 years
As if the whole matter wasn’t intense enough, Bristol Palin thought it would be a good idea to give her take on anti gay marriage and make things just a little bit worse. The 21 year old wrote a blog post criticizing president Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage and for it, Bristol Palin got slammed by the stars. Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage came as a surprise for many. But Republicans took the news harder than imagined. Bristol Palin isn’t a politician, but she is the daughter of one of the most popular GOP members. Her mom, Sarah Palin had a hard time in the presidential race of 2008. It didn’t help that her daughter was having the life of a Democrat daughter, rather than a Republican one. But from the looks of it, it seems Bristol Palin learned a bit politics over the years. In a blog post she slashes at Obama for endorsing gay marriage after talking with his daughters and wife. She wrote that Obama “made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire na ...

    Age 33
    In November 2011, Ronson released the album Chasing the Reds on her own label, Broken Toy Records.
    More Details Hide Details The album showcased her songwriting abilities, drawing inspiration from events in her life. In an interview with American Songwriter, she stated that "I grew up in the studio with songs. My stepdad wrote some pretty f—ing incredible songs. My brother and musician Mark Ronson made his records because he likes making songs. So, the standard was set pretty high for being true to what you want to do. I'm not just going to hand my song over to a producer; I want to be there every step of the way I feel like when you're doing what you love, instead of fitting yourself into somebody else's box, that comes across". Guest stars appear on the album including Wale on "Summer of Sam", Alex Greenwald of Phantom Planet on "Captain Jack" and Slash on the track "Love Song". The album was produced by former Goudie guitarist Jimmy Messer, with Ronson herself sharing co producing credits. Her brother Mark Ronson produced one track,"Skyscrapers", which was cowritten by the siblings with Santigold.
    On 1 August 2011, Ronson was pulled over in Baker, California, while driving her Porsche Targa back home from Las Vegas.
    More Details Hide Details She was stopped for driving 89 m.p.h. in a 70 m.p.h. speed zone, initially but was given a balance test, since she seemed impaired. She was arrested for two misdemeanors for driving under the influence.
    In June 2011, when Ronson was pictured with music producer David Foster's daughter, actress and writer Erin Foster, several media outlets reported that Ronson and Foster were a couple.
    More Details Hide Details The two have been photographed frequently together but Ronson has never commented on the relationship other than to state she is not single. Ronson appears in the music videos for Usher and Alicia Keys' "My Boo", Awolnation's "Burn It Down", N.E.R.D's "Everyone Nose", and brother Mark Ronson's "Ooh Wee" from his album Here Comes The Fuzz. Ronson also appeared in a Gap commercial featuring rapper Common. 2012 2013 2014

    More Details Hide Details In 2009,2010 and 2014 Ronson designed her own set of sneakers for the company Supra.
  • 2010
    Age 32
    Ronson stated in a July 2010 interview with The Times that she loves Lohan as a human being but the paparazzi attention grew to be too much.
    More Details Hide Details
  • TWENTIES
  • 2007
    Age 29
    In 2007 media outlets began commenting on Ronson and actress Lindsay Lohan, who were seen being affectionate in public.
    More Details Hide Details Several newspapers, including The Times and the Los Angeles Times, published opinion pieces describing their relationship as romantic. Lohan refrained from commenting on the nature of their relationship, stating through her publicist that she "wants to keep her private life private."
    In May 2007, American actress Lindsay Lohan crashed her Mercedes-Benz in Beverly Hills.
    More Details Hide Details Police found a "small amount" of cocaine in her car and blogger Perez Hilton posted on his blog that the drugs belonged to Ronson, using another celebrity gossip blog as a source for the story. Two weeks later he started selling "Blame Samantha" T-shirts and called Ronson a "lezbot dj". Ronson hired Martin Garbus to start a defamation suit against Hilton and the original source for the story, Celebrity Babylon. Celebrity Babylon agreed to issue a retraction and apology on the understanding that Ronson would drop the claim; Hilton's lawyers asked the judge to throw out the case as an assault on his free speech rights. Garbus thought that it would be impossible to produce evidence that Hilton had acted with malice and reached an agreement with Hilton which would have kept Ronson from paying his legal fees. Ronson wanted Hilton's retraction and vetoed the proposal. Around the same time Garbus presented a $100,000 bill after the $25,000 retainer had been accounted for. Garbus withdrew from the case and neither he nor Ronson appeared at Hilton's hearing, where the judge ruled in Hilton's favour dismissing the case and ordering Ronson to pay Hilton's $85,000 legal fees. Two weeks later Garbus sued Ronson in New York for close to $142,000 in fees and services. He later dropped that suit. In May, Ronson filed suit against Garbus in Los Angeles County Superior Court, contending that his incompetence had lost the case against Hilton and asking for damages in excess of $300,000.
  • 2004
    Age 26
    In 2004, she opened for JC Chasez on his Schizophrenic tour.
    More Details Hide Details However, inauspicious timing and the dissolution of the Roc-A-Fella Records led to her first album never being released. Although Red was never officially released, downloads were made available from her MySpace page. Ronson has also made a number of appearances on mix tapes produced by artists on the Roc-A-Fella label.
  • 2002
    Age 24
