Music That You Missed - The Slash & Fergie Explanation Edition

Many of you readers may remember the Super Bowl half-time show from 2011; specifically, when the Black Eyed Peas were terrible. It was unfortunate then, that Slash came out to play guitar while Fergie sang "Paradise City" and left everyone scratching their heads as to what the hell was going on. Why was she singing that? Why was he playing guitar with her?

The general consensus was that it was a terrible collaboration. Pardon me while I get semi-technical for a second. Fergie may have sounded awful to people listening at home, but that could be on the part of the person who produces the sound mix that gets broadcast to viewers. What they played live is not exactly what you hear on your television. Of course, it could have been awful live too, but most of us weren't there to know. Either way, there is a reason that Slash and Fergie seemed like a good idea to pair up: they have before and the results were amazing. Back in 2010, Slash released his first solo album with a slew of guest vocalists - including Fergie - and the results were spectacular. One of the standout tracks on the regular version of the LP was "Beautiful Dangerous."

Then there were a whole slew of "deluxe" editions of the album that featured one more pairing with Fergie, this time together with Cypress Hill, on my favorite take on the classic "Paradise City."

And that, dear readers, is why they were paired up at the Super Bowl in 2011. It may not have come across well live, but they sure as hell nailed it together in the studio.

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
