THEPOPFIX Introduces Lady Love Letters

Recently I found myself driving down Sunset Boulevard shocked at the images hovering above me. Normally I try to avert my eyes as the Sunset skyline is littered with half naked models attempting to sell me things that I can’t afford or convince me to look a way that I’ll never look. But this time, something different happened: towering above me was Amy Poehler as her “Parks and Recreation” alter-ego Leslie Knope. A little further down, stopped at a red light, I noticed Amy Schumer gazing down from on high in a billboard for her show “Inside Amy Schumer.” Further west was Julia Louis-Dreyfus commanding her fleet in an ad for the latest season of “Veep.” It appeared that women, really, strong and funny women, had taken over the Sunset Strip.

Lessons Learned In Los Angeles

3. If his opening line is “I’m a producer,” RUN.

4. Your real age – 5 years = Your Hollywood age.

Photos & Thoughts on Michael Jackson’s Memorial Service

After the more than three hour memorial, I can attest that at least for today Michael Jackson will be remembered as the King of Pop and not for his past trials and negative publicity. It’s sad to think that Jackson perhaps died on a sour note with a tarnished reputation after a series of child molestation charges. As “Tito” Jackson stated in Jackson’s memorial book, “I watched the light in Michael’s eyes fade as he faced trials and tribulations for being misunderstood.”
