During her time with The Pussycat Dolls, Melody Thornton was no stranger to wearing some incredibly daring outfits.


And it seems that despite the fact she hasn’t been a member of the girlband for the past two years, Melody is still channelling their wardrobe choices.


The 27-year-old star arrived for Elle’s Women In Music event wearing an incredibly daring see-through vintage dress.


Melody told Mail Online at the event: ‘I just really wanted to do something crazy. And my friend was like, “You have to stop being so safe, so Jackie O. She was like, “Go out there and show some ass.”‘


‘I like to think I put a little classy twist on it.’


Her former Pussycat Dolls bandmate Nicole Scherzinger was also on the red carpet, however in a rather awkward moment, the pair both snubbed each other.


But Nicole, along with most guests, did gawp at the sheer number from afar.


Melody literally left nothing to the imagination in the brown lace number, which did little to maintain her modesty with its sheer material.



And while the singer managed to draw attention to her gym-honed figure in the outfit, it was something of an odd choice for such a well-attended industry event.


Certainly when compared to her more modestly-dressed peers, Melody stood out from the crowd for all the wrong reasons.


But it was Melody who drew the most attention in her odd ensemble, which she teamed with a pair of flat pumps and gold jewellery.


Since the Pussycat Dolls drifted apart in 2010, Melody has been largely off the radar, apart from an appearance on last year’s Popstar to Operastar.


However, last month Melody released her mixtape P.O.Y.B.L, featuring her debut solo single Sweet Vendetta.


Talking about her new material, Melody said recently: ‘After the Dolls, I let everything go and took some much needed time to put myself back together.


‘We worked liked machines and there was little time for maintenance, so I’ve spent the past two years just writing, relaxing, and discovering my musical self without limitations.


‘My amazing fans and supporters have been patiently waiting to hear the REAL Melody Thornton and this is my thank you. I’ve written so many songs and P.O.Y.B.L is the first project of many.’

goHe is a Latin Grammy Award winner and one of the pioneers of the reggaeton  movement, but life almost led Daddy Yankee down a different path.


Ramon Ayala, who today is known all over the world today as Daddy Yankee, was  derailed from a career in the Major Leagues after suffering a leg injury. He was  caught in the middle of a crossfire and was shot in the leg in Puerto Rico,  ending his hopes of becoming a major league baseball player.


That was the moment that he decided to immerse himself what would become  reggaeton—a new sound blending hip hop, Jamaican reggae and reggae en Español  from Panama.


Fox News Latino spoke with Daddy Yankee this week about his excitement over  performing at the inaugural concert at Marlin’s Park on Friday when the Miami  Marlins go head-to-head against the Houston Astros.


“Baseball has always been a love of mine, and so being able to combine both  passions for this performance is so exciting,” he said. “Usually when I do a  show, I sit in the dressing room waiting to go on. This time I get to watch a  baseball game live. I can’t complain!”


As part of the “Miami Marlins Friday Night Live Concert Series,” Daddy Yankee  will perform a variety of the songs to please his die-hard fans as well as those  who will be getting an introduction to his music for the first time.


“I’m bringing my full show to Miami on Friday. It will be a mix of both my  new material off of my upcoming album Prestige as well as some of my hits from  over the years such as “Pose,” “Rompe, ” and today “Lovumba” and many more.


A release date for “Prestige” is yet to be announced, but Daddy Yankee  promises he is working hard to wrap things up in the studio. When asked about  his next single, he confirmed its release is not too far out of reach.


“I’m still busy in the studio putting the finishing touches on the album, we  don’t have a release date yet but I will be dropping the next single soon. Be on  the look out!”


With more than 2million fans following him on Twitter and 11.4 million  following him on Facebook, Daddy Yankee has embraced social media as a way to  reach fans on a more personal level.  He will be the special guest speaker  during the Billboard Latin Music Conference panel entitled, “Being Social” on  Wednesday, April 25th, 2012.


“Over the past few years, I’ve seen how much the music industry has been  influenced by social media. I constantly use it to communicate with my fans and  see what’s new and upcoming. I’m going to share my experiences and how it’s  helped my business and career grow.”


His excitement over his performance tonight led him to talk to his fans  directly via Twitter.


“I haven’t had a chance to see the Marlins’ new ballpark yet, but I’ve heard  that it looks amazing,” he said. “I actually just posted on Twitter what an  honor it is to be the first performer to take the stage at the new stadium. It’s  historic!!”


Park Jung-min From Boy Band SS501 Alleges CNR Media Is Not Paying Him

Park Jung-min from the defunct boy band SS501 has asked a court to nullify the exclusive representation agreement he signed with his agency.
The star alleges that CNR Media is not paying him as agreed, but the contract he signed prevents him from working elsewhere.
The agency has only paid Park 150 million won ($132,450), the star said, and he seeks further compensation from the company, though he didn’t specify how much he wants in the court filing.
Since the days of SS501, Park has been active as an actor in Taiwan and Japan. Last year, Park headed concerts in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, over Christmas. But unless his exclusive contract is nullified, he cannot officially sign with another agency.
After five years together, the five members of SS501 decided to separate and pursue individual careers as musicians and actors.
Last year, Park released two EP albums: a dance album by the name of “Not Alone” in January and an eponymous EP in April.

Derek Hough and Katherine Jenkins Couldn’t Keep Their Hands Off Each Other

She described herself as ‘beyond broken hearted’ after splitting with fiancé Gethin Jones at the end of December.

But judging from new photographs taken earlier this week, it looks like Katherine Jenkins may have found a welcome distraction from her heartbreak.

The 31-year-old Welsh singer was spotted getting very cosy with Dancing With The Stars professional Derek Hough as they partied at LA hot spot The House of Blues on Monday night.

The pair headed out to the Sunset Strip nightclub with a group of dancers and celebrities from the show after they performed on the hit TV programme’s rock week.

Katherine is partnered with professional Mark Ballas on the show, while Derek, 26, is teamed with presenter Maria Menounos.

But they only had eyes for each other on Monday, with Derek unable to keep his hands off the Welsh star who was still sporting her black streaky ‘rock’ hair style.

Clutching a can of beer, Derek was seen hugging Katherine who smiled and laughed in delight.

He regularly kept his arms wrapped around the Welsh singer and didn’t appear to pay much attention to the performing band Steel Panther.

Wearing a grey T-shirt, Derek whispered into Katherine’s ear and appeared to kiss her on the cheek at one point.

The pair have recently been spotted out together in West Hollywood, with one source telling the Sunday Mirror that Derek is ‘smitten’ with Katherine.

‘Derek is single and would like to date Katherine, but she wants to take things ­slowly as she only ­recently ended her ­engagement,’ the insider said. ‘They are hanging out all the time and are already close friends.’

They were also seen getting flirting a few weeks ago at Beacher’s Madhouse, a variety show at the Roosevelt Hotel in West Hollywood.

An eyewitness said: ‘They were sitting in the sectioned off area near the front. It was really flirty. They had they’re hands around each other and were rubbing each others backs and holding each others hands behind their backs.

‘There was definitely something there between them. They looked very comfortable together and relaxed in each other’s company.

‘They were with other friends there too, but really they only had eyes for each other.  I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they were an item, they were all over each other


But in an interview last month, Katherine addressed rumours she was romantically involved with Derek, claiming they were just ‘good friends.’

She said: ‘There’s a group of us, including Derek, who are in a similar age bracket and will go out most nights after training.’

She also claimed she wasn’t ready to start dating again, adding: ‘Mark and Derek were trying to explain how the dating culture here is different.

‘You can date a few different people at the same time! But I’m happy to have the distraction of dancing. Dating isn’t going to happen.’

Derek would be somewhat of a toyboy for Katherine. However he was also two years younger than Fight for This Love singer Cheryl, 28, who he was also rumoured to have once dated.

AKB48 producer Akimoto Yasushi has stepped in on SKE48’s Matsui Jurina’s condition and has told her to take an indefinite rest.


According to Tokyo Hive, Akimoto had shared on his Google+ account that Matsui had suffered from anaemia and exhaustion from overworking and has instructed her to take plenty of sleep and nourishment to recover.


“Jurina is resting with her mom,” Akimoto said and added; “I am keeping in touch with both Jurina and her mum, and I told them not to worry about work. So if there’s a sudden change in schedule, I’m sorry.”


Jurina had been absent from SKE48 activities since 5 April after stretching her limits during a performance in February and most recently at the AKB48 mega-concert in the Saitama Super Arena recently.

Kanye West Is A Talented Jackass Says Obama

Kanye West is talented, and not many will dispute that. But he’s also a raging ego-maniac, and not many will dispute that, either.

West is notorious for comments he’s made about himself over the years, including but not limited to comparing himself to Michael Jordan.

“I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade, I will be the loudest voice,” he said in an interview on Wednesday. “It’s me settling into that position of just really accepting that it’s one thing to say you want to do it and it’s another thing to really end up being like Michael Jordan.”

He’s also made some  arguable claims about others in the industry:

“The greatest, biggest pop-cultural figure of all time, arguably bigger than Jesus Christ, is Michael Jackson.”

West made headlines in 2009 when he interrupted young country star Taylor Swift–who was onstage to receive her award for Best Female Video at the MTV Video Awards–to grab the mic from her hand and declare that while her video was good, Beyonce had one of “the best videos of all time”. Beyonce was one of Swift’s fellow nominees in the category.

He’s shocked audiences for years with his absurd rants and high opinion of himself, and now it seems the general public isn’t alone in recognizing his jackassery. The prez himself says that while he thinks Kanye is talented, he prefers Jay-Z, and said so to David Samuels of The Atlantic.

“Although I like Kanye,” Obama continues, with an easy smile. “He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.” He is displaying his larger awareness of the question, looking relaxed, cerebral but friendly, alive to the moment, waiting for me to get to the heart of the matter.

“Even though you called him a jackass?,” I ask.

“He is a jackass,” Obama says, in his likable and perfectly balanced modern-professorial voice. “But he’s talented.”

Obama first mentioned his feelings towards the rapper back in 2009, right after the Taylor Swift incident.

“The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She’s getting her award. What’s he doing up there? He’s a jackass,”
