In honor of his DUI arrest last Friday, I would like to showcase a gentleman that may be more lost than we actually thought…
P.S. I do not endorse driving drunk…but I do endorse a topless man.
Let’s be real…I wouldn’t mind being trapped on that crazy island with Jack Shephard. He’s a doctor, he cares about people and he looks good while doing it.
But this post isn’t about Dr. Shephard…it’s about Matthew Chandler Fox.
Matthew was born July 14, 1966 in Crowheart, Wyoming…he definitely gives off that cowboy mystique. Matthew’s mother Loretta was a teacher and his father Francis raised cattle and grew barley for the Coors company…hmm.
Fox attended Columbia University and earned a degree in economics. While in school, he began stretching out his acting muscles. The actor’s big break came in 1994 when he was cast as Charlie Salinger on “Party of Five.”
Fast forwarding to 2004…Matthew landed the epic role of Dr. Jack Shephard on “Lost.”
I’ll be honest, I was quite confused while watching this show. The flashbacks, the flashforwards, the polar bears, the creepy black smoke…ugh. I’m exhausted just thinking about it.
On a personal note, Matthew (unfortunately) has a wife - Margherita Ronchi and two children.
Now for the serious note, Matthew Fox was stopped at 3:23 a.m. last Friday in Oregon for driving under the influence. The actor was on his way to a fast food restaurant (typical) when he was picked up by the police. He was released the same day and has not commented on the incident yet.
Matthew – Get it together. You’re too pretty to be in jail.
Happy Tuesday! You all know what this means…
This past Saturday I was putting a lot of time and effort into building my party playlist for the summer. While I was listing to “Magic Stick” by Lil’ Kim ft. 50 Cent, I stumbled upon another member of G-Unit…Mr. Lloyd Banks.
Lloyd and I go way back, all the way back to a time when I was in high school and would cruise in my mom’s car to his jam “Warrior.” I’ll be honest. I thought I was a member of G-Unit. Others didn’t think so…that’s for sure.
Anywho this post is about Lloyd and not my aspiring rap career…back to you Lloyd.
Christopher Charles Lloyd was born April 30, 1982 (Happy Belated Bday, Lloyd!) in New Carrollton, Maryland but was raised in Queens, New York.
A few honorable mentions about Lloyd:
- Lloyd took the name Banks from his great, great-grandfather
- He dropped out of high school at 16
- Mr. Banks is a mix of Puerto Rican and African-American descent
- Lloyd was a founding member of G-Unit along with his pals 50 Cent and Tony Yayo
In 2004 Lloyd released his debut album “The Hunger for More” featuring the single “On Fire.” If you listen closely you can hear a little 50 Cent during the chorus.
Lloyd’s debut album hit hard selling 500,500 copies during the first week.
As for his second album, Lloyd had an album all ready to be released. It was supposed to be called “The Big Withdraw” and contained 23 tracks. Interestingly enough, “The Big Withdraw” was never officially released. How could that be?
Well…this one time Lloyd was involved in, for lack of a better term, a 3-way with two ladies and he accidentally left the album behind. As any logical woman in that situation would do…one of them leaked the album to the Interweb. Come on ladies…you would do the same!
Lloyd said of the matter, “It’s truth to that rumor. That comes from me doing too much. I was just lost in my ways, fucked two women at one time. It’s the little things you don’t pay attention to…”
Following that messy incident, Banks began working on his (technically) third album “Rotten Apples.” His last studio release was called “H.F.M.: The Hunger for More 2″ and dropped in 2010, featuring the single “Beamer, Benz, or Bently” ft. Juelz Santana.
If you’re looking for more Lloyd, keep an eye out for Banks’s next mixtape release “V6.” It was set to drop yesterday, but Banks posted a tweet that said “Still a few things I have to do with the tape, it’s not droppin monday..but soon after!,” he wrote. “I just want it to be delivered the right way. Trust me, it’s worth the wait! You won’t be disappointed.”
Lloyd – Stay in the spotlight, you are too pretty to hide in Queens.
In the spirit of mixing things up, I would like to deem this Thursday a Topless Thursday!
When we first met Scott on the early seasons of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” he was Kourtney’s boyfriend that everyone loved to hate. At the beginning, I was certainly a passenger on the I hate Scott train. But after all these years I have come to absolutely LOVE Scott.
While I believe Mr. Kourtney Kardashian is a handsome gentleman, he also offers up hilarious commentary during every and all occasions.
- $3000 for a walking stick…sounds reasonable
- Now that’s a gentleman’s photo, I’ve got my son, a nice tan, birds and my hair is flowing in the wind like flocks of Capistrano
- This night really went from first class to coach
Scott Disick hatched May 26, 1983 in Eastport N.Y. He has a brother named David whose occupation is photographer. Scott attended the Ross School, which is a private school (obviously) in New York. That’s all I really know about his background. Disick is a man of mystery.
Side note: Does anyone really know what Scott does for a living? I decided to check his Wikipedia page and one of the occupations listed is man of conspicuous leisure. Like a boss.
Scott began dating Kourtney in 2007 and the pair has had a rocky past. In 2009, Kourtney and Scott’s son Mason Dash Disick was born and things seemed to take a turn for the better. But Khloe, Scott and Kourtney have made it well-known that Scott does not sleep in the same bed as his lady…Mason does. Since it’s not my place to judge, I will say…whatever floats thy boat.
In lieu of having any more hot gossip about Scott, I will just post a topless picture.
In honor of his new film “The Lucky One” hitting theaters this week, I have decided to spotlight a gentleman that needs no introduction…
Whenever I hear Zac Efron’s name I get whiplash trying to locate him. Let’s be real, I know that he would never be in the same vicinity as me, but a girl can dream.
The beautiful and lovely Zachary David Alexander Efron was gloriously born Oct. 18, 1987 and hails from San Luis Obispo, California.
Fun Fact: Even though the beautiful and lovely Zac is agnostic, the name “Efron” means lark in Hebrew.
Zac graduated from Arroyo Grande High School in 2006 and during his time there participated in many theatre productions such as, “Gypsy,” “The Music Man” and “Peter Pan.” Zac was accepted to USC, but deferred his enrollment in order to pursue his acting/singing dreams.
Some of Zac’s early work consisted of guest spots on “ER,” “The Guardian,” “Summerland” and “CSI: Miami.” At this point in his career, Zac was still searching for that breakout roll. Who would have thought that the Disney Channel and a little movie called “High School Musical” would catapult him to the top.
Since the premiere of “High School Musical,” life for the beautiful and lovely Zac has been a whirlwind. He has appeared and/or starred in:
- Vanessa Hudgens’ music video “Say OK“
- Played Link Larkin in “Hairspray“
- Graced “High School Musical 2 and 3″ with his presence
- Surprised in “Me and Orson Wells“
- Made me cry in “Charlie St. Cloud“
- And made a cameo in “New Years Eve“
Up next for Zac is his highly anticipated role in “The Lucky One.” Maybe it’s not highly anticipated for you…but it is for me! Have you seen the preview?!
As for his personal life, Zac was linked to Vanessa Hudgens…they met on the set of “High School Musical.” Thankfully for the rest of us ladies they broke up in December 2010.
Next up for Zac is a starring role alongside Nicole Kidman in “The Paperboy.”
Zac – I will never forget that time you dropped the magnum condom on the red carpet. It made all the women in, I’m gonna say it, the entire world swoon. Stay classy, Zac.
Did you think I missed the hallowed day known as Topless Tuesday? Well have no fear…Kari is here!
I thought I would mix it up this week and post about this particular gentleman on Topless Wednesday instead of the typical Tuesday. This man is just that special…he has earned his own topless day of the week.
If you have been missing in action for the past few weeks, I’ll fill you in on the most important thing you may have missed. “Titanic” was released in 3D!
Personally, I’ve been waiting 15 years for this moment and in four days I will be sitting in the movie theatre with my sweet, sweet 3D glasses on experiencing “Titanic” like never before. Yes, I realize that I am a tad late in getting my behind to the movies…blame it on the #GradSchoolProblems.
Let’s be real…who doesn’t want to see a three-dimensional shot of Kate and Leo getting intimate on the bow of that majestic ship? You all know my answer.
Anywho, Leo is an extremely well-known actor that has starred in many amazing films such as, “The Aviator,” “Revolutionary Road,” and “The Departed.” Instead of giving a brief biography on Mr. DiCaprio, I’ve decided to share some unique facts about this beautiful man:
- Leo’s middle name is Wilhelm
- His film debut was in the groundbreaking 1991 film “Critters 3“
- Leo’s parents decided on the name Leonardo because his mother first felt Leo kick in the womb while she was gazing at a Leonardo Da Vinci painting
- Mr. DiCaprio originally turned down the roll of Jack Dawson in “Titanic.” Director James Cameron convinced him to sign on and thank God he did
- Leo recently bought an island in Belize which he plans to build an eco-friendly resort on…he’s a big fan of the Earth
On a final note, I just want to mention that I am still on Team Kate & Leo 4ever. I really don’t understand why they are continuously slapping cupid in the face and denying their love. Therefore, I’m taking donations in order to create Team Kate & Leo 4ever T-shirts for everyone.
Leo – The rapper Drake has stated in the past: “It must be hard to be that fine” in his song “Make Me Proud.” I think he’s talking about you boo!
As you have probably surmised from all of my previous posts, I’m not well versed in sports. But I will not let that stop me from showcasing a topless athlete every so often.
Before I reveal this week’s topless gent, I want you to know that I am, in fact, oddly attracted to this man. Now that I got that off my chest…
Chris Andersen aka Birdman
You may recognize Mr. Andersen from his affiliation with the Denver Nuggets and/or from his sweet and colorful tattoos.
Note: The picture on your left is an earlier version of Chris. He has amped up his tattoos substantially as you will see later on.
Anywho, Chris was born July 17, 1978 in Long Beach, Calif., but was raised in Iola, Texas…which explains his fascination with hunting.
Since playing basketball in high school didn’t earn Birdman a college scholarship, he decided to attend Blinn College in Brenham, Texas. Completing a year of college, Chris went undrafted in the NBA Draft in 1999. He subsequently signed with the Chinese Basketball League and hauled ass to China.
Chris told Inked Magazine that “China really toughened me up. When I played there, they could actually still smoke in the arena as you’re playing…I saw this one guy just burn one down in three or four puffs, then just whip out another one and light it up right there. That definitely made it tougher as a player, playing in those conditions.”
After one year in China, Chris returned to the States and signed with the NBDL for a season. Finally, the Denver Nuggets picked up the Birdman.
Enough of all that sports junk…let’s discuss the more important things:
- Chris stands at 6’10 which makes him climb like a tree worthy.
- He scooped up the name Birdman because after he scores, he flaps his arms like a bird.
- The first tattoos Birdman got were two Chinese symbols meaning the good and the bad.
- The phrase “Free Bird” is tattooed across his neck.
- He was suspended from the NBA for two years for violating the league’s drug policy.
Ever since the suspension, Birdman has cleaned up his act and is currently developing his own reality show…I’ll definitely be tuning in!
Birdman – Even though I don’t have any tattoos, I’d let you draw a few on me with washable markers. I would also like to be taught how to slam dunk a basketball in order to bring all the boys to the yard. You’ll probably have to toss me into the air so I can reach the basket. Prep yourself.
This Tuesday I have chosen a gentleman that is famous for two reasons. He dated the Queen of Pop and likes to pose for photos in his birthday suit…I can dig it.
Now that I have you on the edge of your seat…
Remember that time Madonna dated Jesus?
I’d like to thank Madonna for providing me with a plethora of jokes and introducing me to her version of Jesus.
Jesus Luz is a man of mystery. What I do know about him is very little, but I will share the knowledge I have acquired about this beautiful, beautiful man.
Let’s start out with the most obvious item…his name.
During a phone conversation with Interview Magazine, Jesus revealed how his obtained that biblical name. “My father [gave me] my name because he always admired Jesus Christ as the most philosophical mind of all time. So, when he named me, in his heart and his head, he made a deal, like, I’m going to name you Jesus so everything good in life is going to come to you because they’re going to make the homage to Jesus.” Into it.
Jesus was born in Rio de Janeiro which explains that precious Brazilian skin tone. This man was born to be a model. His first modeling gig was at Fashion Rio in 2007 which led him to a huge shoot in W magazine that gave him tons of exposure…literally.
Basically Jesus is famous because he dated Madonna. They met while shooting a fashion spread in W magazine. The relationship lasted for a whole year! Rumor has it Jesus was the one who initiated the split because the couple had nothing in common.
Honestly, do you really need to talk to each other? I’d just stare at him until he got weirded out and walked briskly away.
Jesus – Looking at you is like staring at the sun. Your eyes burn and you lose the ability to see for a period of time, but it’s worth the pain. Can I send you my optometry bill? If not, I’m always willing to send you my pager number. Get at me.
So in honor of “The Hunger Games,” it’s time to explore the male counterparts to Katniss. More specifically, let’s talk about Liam Hemsworth, the guy who plays Gale. While he may be Miss Miley Cyrus’ bf, it’s important to recognize that their relationship is probably not as strong as the connection we all saw in the movie. So rather than comment on his current relationship with the train-wreck, let’s talk about his finer points (and no, I’m not talking about his acting talents).
Let the pics speak for themselves. But if you like what you see, go support him this weekend as the ultimate anti-hero Gale.
Hmm, maybe this one will be better…
So Liam, if you ever get tired of Miley or Katniss, call me (or Kari, she’d be down too)
Hi friends, it’s your favorite professor/Ph.D. student and pop culture junkie. Kari (an awesome roommate for the record) is currently working on her finals project, so I’m taking on the Topless Tuesday responsibilities today.
So let’s get down to it.
When it comes to my personal ‘90s love, no one knows my love like JT. He was always hot, and the rest of *Nsync was just playing backup to his talents.
As he now ponders his engagement to fellow 90s star Jessica Biel (everyone together now… ugh), let’s look back at some of his better moments… like when he’s wearing no shirt.
So lets just let the pics speak for themselves…
Miss Biel, you are one lucky lady, don’t mess it up (because I’m waiting for him to be back on the market again)!
Since I have been lacking in my half-naked men duties this week, I have decided to showcase a gentleman that I’ve been saving for a special occasion.
Let me start out by saying thank you to Canada. While that may sound weird…just wait…I have a good reason. Canada has produced some wonderfully good-looking men. For example: Drake, Joshua Jackson and the oh-so-beautiful Ryan Thomas Gosling.
Hailing from London, Ontario, Ryan was born Nov. 12, 1980. School was rough for lil Ryan…he was bullied and (if you can imagine) had no friends until he was a teenager : (
Fun fact: After seeing the film “First Blood,” Ryan brought steak knives to school and threw them at his classmates during recess. Obviously, lil Ryan was suspended for that one.
Starting from an early age, Ryan loved to perform . He was even involved in ballet classes which boosted his confidence. So precious.
Ryan got his start in the entertainment business on the “Mickey Mouse Club.” He moved to Orlando for two years and even lived with cast member Justin Timberlake for a period of time.
After the “Mickey Mouse Club” was cancelled in 1995, Gosling hoofed it back to Canada and continued to take on small roles. Officially dropping out of school at 17 and vowing only to take on serious roles at the age of 19, Ryan really jump started his career. He nabbed a supporting role in “Remember the Titans” and made waves with his performances in “The Believer” and “Murder by Numbers” which co-stared Sandra Bullock.
At this point, Gosling was still under the radar, but a little film released in 2004 titled “The Notebook” got everyone’s attention. I really don’t think I have to elaborate here.
In 2007, Ryan starred in one of my favorite Gos-Gos films…”Lars and the Real Girl.” The movie did horrible at the box office, so bad it didn’t even break-even. I don’t understand this…Ryan’s character dates a sex doll…who wouldn’t pay to see that?
Since Gosling isn’t busy enough, he is also one-half of the indie rock group Dead Man’s Bones.
Last but not least…Ryan has dated many high-profile Hollywood ladies. Let’s make a list:
- Sandra Bullock
- Rachel McAdams (soul mates)
- Kat Dennings
- Blake Lively
- Olivia Wilde
- Eva Mendes (his current lady)
At this point, Mr. Gosling is showing no signs of slowing down. He has many films on deck and plans to release a second album with his band.
I think he’s hustling for that “Sexiest Man Alive” title that was wrongfully stolen from him…yep still mad about that one!
