Video Premiere Estelle - Wonderful Life

Itsnotyouitsme favorite Estelle has released the second single "Wonderful Life" off her sophomore effort All of Me. Estelle is quoted in saying that she wrote "Wonderful Life", in part, to help her appreciate her life when she got sick of performing her breakout hit "American Boy".

 Indeed she is having wonderful life as she is seen in the new video directed by Iren Sheffield and the song written by rapper Akon, traveling the world, dinning with friends and perfectly capturing her lyrics “Hey! I’m winning today, my smile is OK at the end of the line, and I’m fine, no thorns in my side, somebody remind me, it’s a wonderful life.”

 Hit play below to check out one of our favorite tracks from Estelle's latest release.

Will Ferrel Is A Twi-Hard Wreck

Will Ferrell stops by the Conan O' Brian show last night to talk about his film The Campaign but an emotional break down had the 45 year old comedic actor spilling his tears after he learned of a fellow actors love gone wrong.


The Campaign Trailer Here’s the film’s synopsis: In order to gain influence over their North Carolina district, two CEOs seize an opportunity to oust long-term congressman Cam Brady (Ferrell) by putting up a rival candidate. Their man: naive Marty Huggins (Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center.

It's The Serge And Jane Shoot! Simple Elegance

Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin display an example of minimalistic and classic elegance in this early 70s photo. Worth noticing are their bellbottoms. Perfectly tailored, perfectly slimming during the decadently fun era.

Gay or straight you do not mess with a man's food so we will never dine at a Chick-a-filet but instead enjoy the greasy goodness of KFC's "Original Recipe" of 11 herbs and spices with our newest friend in the "community" Colonel Sanders (John Goodman).

Now You Can Buy a $250,000 Nail Polish

Who doesn't want to have $250,000 worth of diamonds lacquered on your very own lil piggies? Apparently Azature the "unique fine jewelry, black diamond specialist" is giving you the pricey opportunity.

Remember that time when everyone got all freaked out about that snakeskin pedicure that cost $300? Well, get ready to completely lose it, because we just got a press release for the “most expensive nail polish in the world.”

That title was previously held by Models Own, which produced a $130,000 bottle (featuring a 24-carat gold, diamond-encrusted lid) back in 2010. However, the self-professed “king of black diamonds,” Azature, has doubled that figure. A bottle of black nail polish containing a whopping 267 carats of black diamonds in the actual polish will go for $250,000. Yikes. You won’t be able to just walk into Duane Reade and buy this sucker, however–only one bottle of the stuff will be produced.

For those of us who can’t afford a quarter of a million dollars for a manicure, Azature is offering a $25 version (see, now doesn’t $25 nail polish sound downright cheap in comparison?) containing one measly black diamond. You’ll be able to pick it up in LA at Fred Segal starting this month.
