THG is excited to present our first-ever Artist of the Week.

Readers, agents and music reps often contact our site and ask us to promote their friends or clients. We've always heard them out, but didn't feel as though any of the recommendations were worthy of this feature... until now.

Meet Mikey Wax.

A New York native and Vanderbilt University graduate, Wax released his first album in November 2008. It debuted at number-46 on the iTunes U.S. top 100 pop albums chart.

Since then, Wax has released a six-song EP ("For Better or Worse") and opened for such acts as Howie Day, Ryan Cabrera, Graham Colton and Marcy Playground. His single "In Case I Go Again" was featured on an episode of The Ghost Whisperer last month.

Wax also released his third CD in April 2010. You can actually download it for free at MikeyWax.com. We strongly urge readers to do so.

Wax will be performing in Boston and Philadelphia this summer. He's an artist on the rise, one people should keep their eyes (and ears, especially) on.

Take a listen to "In Case I Go Again" below and see if you agree.

If there were ever any doubt who the woman to beat is this season on Dancing with the Stars, Nicole Scherzinger knocked it out of the park on Monday night.

Following Evan Lysacek's perfect 30 just one week ago, Nicole notched her own 10-10-10 series last night - then followed it up with a 29 in her second effort.

That's a total of 59 for the Paso Doble and Foxtrot, thankyouverymuch.

With performances like these two bring every week, it's like everyone else is dancing for second. They probably are. Fortunately, that's a compelling contest.

Evan and Anna Trebunskaya were typically solid, tying for second place at an aggregate 53 with Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, still our favorites.

Maks going Miami Vice for their '80s rumba was a nice touch, and we're happy Erin didn't take the advice of Elisabeth Hasselbeck and tone down the outfits.

Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough dominated.

Chad Ochocinco stumbled a bit (maybe due to #85 having to perform a '60s jive), landing him well back of the leaders along with Niecy Nash this week.

Last night's full scoreboard:

  • Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough - Foxtrot: 29. Paso Doble: 30. Total: 59.
  • Erin Andrews & Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Tango: 28. Rumba: 25. Total: 53.
  • Evan Lysacek & Anna Trebunskaya - Waltz: 27. Cha-cha: 26. Total: 53.
  • Chad Ochocinco & Cheryl Burke - Tango - 21. Jive: 24. Total: 45.
  • Niecy Nash & Louis Van Amstel - Waltz: 23. Paso Doble: 20. Total: 43.

Who's going home this evening? It's not looking good for Niecy, once again, although Chad barely edged her out. It's got to be one of those two, right?

An 18-year-old who pursued fame on a reality TV show after being prosecuted for her role in the "bling ring" celebrity burglary case was sentenced to six months in jail.

Alexis Neiers was a relatively minor player in the ring - also termed the Burglar Bunch - but took a bigger role when her arrest coincided with production of Pretty Wild.

That E! show depicts Alexis and her two sisters growing up in the fast lane in suburban Los Angeles as aspiring starlets ... and apparently, robbers. Nice work, ladies!

Neiers will be also placed on three years probation and must pay restitution to Orlando Bloom, whose home was burglarized by Neiers and several others, police said.

Alexis Neiers Mug Shot

PRETTY JAILED: Alexis Neiers is going to prison. Wild!

Dressed in a black blazer, designer jeans and white shoes, Alexis stood with a sullen expression in court. She was given a two-year suspended sentence for the crime.

Bloom was among a dozen high-profile celebrities - including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge and Rachel Bilson - targeted in 2008 and 2009 by the ring.

The troubled teens were somehow able to steal millions in valuables before getting caught. Nick Prugo was the first of the tools to be thrown in the shed.

So to speak.

LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg was found dead at her home in Nevada yesterday afternoon, according to local police. It is not known why. She was only 25.

According to law enforcement sources, the cause of death has not yet been determined, but officials are currently conducting a "death investigation."

A two-time NCAA All-American, Blasberg was named Golfweek's 2003 College Player of the Year after finishing the season No. 1 in the rankings.

ESPN reports that police responded to a 911 call, but they did not say who made the call. More details will surface shortly as the story develops.

R.I.P. Erica Blasberg (1984-2010).

Blasberg's agent, Chase Callahan, released the following statement: "We are devastated to learn of the passing of Erica Blasberg. To most of the world, Erica was known as a professional golfer, but she was more than that."

"She was a loving daughter to her parents and a compassionate and loyal friend. Erica had a good heart, was extremely kind and very thankful for what she had in her life."

"She lived out her dream of playing professional golf on the highest level on the LPGA Tour, allowing her to help inspire others. We are proud of Erica for everything she accomplished. This is a painful loss, we feel it in our hearts and we will miss her."

"Erica would want those close to her to celebrate the life she lived. We ask that you keep Erica and her family in your prayers."

Thanks to her recent roles on Pushing Daisies and Glee, we know Kristin Chenoweth can act, sing and dance.

Turns out, she can also express an opinion.

Kristin Chenoweth Picture

In the most recent edition of Newsweek, openly gay writer Ramin Setoodeh states that homosexuals do NOT make convincing straight men on stage or on film. For example, he refers to Sean Hayes' performance in the Broadway musical Promises, Promises as "wooden and insincere."

In response, Chenoweth writes:

"I'd normally keep silent on such matters and write such small-minded viewpoints off as perhaps a blip in common sense. But the offense I take to this article, and your decision to publish it is not really even related to my profession or my work with Hayes or Jonathan Groff (also singled out in the article as too 'queeny' to play 'straight'). This article offends me because I am a human being, a woman and a Christian."

She continues:

"Thousands of people have traveled from all over the world to enjoy Hayes’ performance and don’t seem to have one single issue with his sexuality! They have no problem buying him as a love-torn heterosexual man. Audiences aren’t giving a darn about who a person is sleeping with or his personal life. Give me a break!

"We’re actors first, whether we’re playing prostitutes, baseball players, or the Lion King. Audiences come to theater to go on a journey. It’s a character and it’s called acting, and I’d put Hayes and his brilliance up there with some of the greatest actors period.

"The examples he provides (what scientists call 'selection bias') to prove his 'gays can't play straight' hypothesis are sloppy in my opinion... No one needs to see a bigoted, factually inaccurate article that tells people who deviate from heterosexual norms that they can't be open about who they are and still achieve their dreams."

What do you think, readers? Does Chenoweth make a convincing argument? Should she have gone off on the article in such a manner?

While D-list celebrities across every industry get naked in the name of animal protection, Helena Christensen has donned her birthday suit for a far more important cause:

Sneakers.

Indeed, the model is the face (well, body) of Reebok’s new ad campaign for its EasyTone trainers.

Speaking of the shoes, she says:

“With my busy schedule, it’s a perfect way to do something without spending hours in the gym. I’m impatient, when I try something I like to see results immediately. I could feel these working right away which is why I’ve stuck with them.”

For Christensen's sake, let's hope they help her run fast: after men around the world check out the following nude photo of her, Helena will be running for her life from them.

"I want to treat you rough, throw you around, spank and slap you ... hold you down while I choke you and f*%k that a$$ that I own." - Tiger Woods

When producing a porn parody of her affair with the world's #1 golfer, Joslyn James needn't look further than his actual text messages for inspiration.

You knew it was coming ... on several levels.

Somehow, multiple press conferences coinciding with Tiger’s and strip club appearances held near his golfing events weren't enough for Joslyn James.

The adult film star is filming The 11th Hole, a porno based on the infamous “sexts” the golfer sent her, and named because she was his 11th mistress.

11th Hole

GET IN THE HOLE! Tiger Woods certainly has no problems in that regard.

This is a hilarious title for several reasons:

  • The obvious double entendre
  • No one would ever make the "11th" connection
  • We actually have her listed as his 8th mistress

Anyway, “In sensual and graphic terms, viewers will learn the between-the-sheets story behind the texts Woods sent to James,” says Vivid Entertainment.

The only downside? It was filmed too early for "bulging disk" jokes.

Tiger Woods may have not apologized to Joslyn James for .... whatever it is she wants him to apologize for ... but we’re pretty sure he regrets nailing her.

It really is amazing that Tiger cheated ... and cheated with a porn star ... and texted her all sorts of nasty, dirty thoughts ... and was so dumb to not realize that getting caught would result in that porn star making a porn about the cheating.

Because causing a riot in Australia and trampling over a middle-aged woman in New Zealand weren't clear enough signs that Justin Bieber fans are certifiably insane, the group proved just how ridiculous its affection for Bieber can be when it threatened to murder Kim Kardashian last week.

Seriously, a series of Bieber lovers Tweeted death threats to Kim after she joked about Justin as her boyfriend. What did these Tweets say?

"They sent me messages like, 'If I ever see you in the streets, I will kill you! You took my man!'" Kardashian told Us Weekly. "I got a few today. One said, 'I will shank you.' Not too sure what a 'shank' is."

Hmmm... maybe these two are actually perfect for each other. After all, Bieber doesn't know what the word "German" is.

It's Kim!

Kim is putting on a brave front in the face of these threats. She won't let the terrorists win!

"I still have Bieber fever," she says. "It’s not his fault that all the Beiber fans are after me. They're all young, so I’m hoping that it's all just in fun and that they seriously don’t mean it."

So are we. Who will THG mock and insult for her publicity-garnering, hypocritical ways if Kim is dead?

Well, her sisters. But still.

Katy Perry has been named No. 1 on Maxim's 2010 Hot 100 List. That is awesome for her. We are big Katy fans, and don't mean to discredit her here, but ...

Blake Lively is fourth. Megan Fox fifth. Marisa Miller is tenth. Tenth.

Last year's winner, Olivia Wilde, fell to 20th. Was she in an accident we're not aware of? What gives? How did the future Mrs. Russell Brand pull this off?

Perry is "a triple - no, quadruple - kind of hot," Maxim Editor-in-Chief Joe Levy says. "It's like that feeling you get when you suddenly realize that the smartest, funniest, coolest girl you know also happens to the best looking."

You buying that?

Hot List Topper

Does Katy Perry deserve her Hot List title?

Don't get us wrong, she seems really cool and Katy Perry pictures are easy on the eyes too. But #1? Let's see how Maxim's rankings match up with yours, readers:

Who would you have voted for atop the Hot List?

 

  • Hottest Blake Lively Photo
  • Decked Out
  • Zoe Saldana Fashion
  • Limber
  • Rihanna in Paris

Kate Gosselin may not be the best mom in Hollywood, but she really loves her kids. She has a special birthday present for them today: Time with Jon Gosselin.

Kind of a crappy birthday gift if you ask us, but you know how it is with kids. Sometimes you gotta do whatever makes them happy.

Six of the seven humans who actually like seeing Jon will do so today.

THG NOTE: The seventh would be Ellen Ross, his new girlfriend. His older two daughters, Mady and Cara, probably realize what a douchebag he is by now.

A source close to Kate confirms she has offered to let the kids see Jon this afternoon, even though it isn't even technically his day in the pair's custody deal.

Kate plans to cook the kids a special birthday breakfast, ship 'em off to school, and then Jon could have the kids in the afternoon ... should he so choose.

  • Looking Good Kate

WORLD'S #1 DAD: Jon Gosselin's sextuplets want to spend time with him for some reason. Kids. They just don't know any better. [Photos: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

No word yet on if Jon accepted the offer, but we suspect he will, because last week, Jon indicated the following when tracked down by Radar Online:

“I really want to see them on their birthday, but I don’t know. I don’t have custody so I’m hoping that Kate let’s me see them on their birthday.”

Nice, yes. But this being Jon, a douchebag move is never far off.

Before that comment, Kate and Jon had already discussed the situation over the phone and Kate told Jon he could see the kids on their birthday.

Yet Jon still went out and made it seem like Kate might not let him. Says a source: “Nobody knows why Jon does this, unless it’s for attention.”

Pretty much sums it up right there. If he really wants to seek a truce with Kate and bury the hatchet once for good, he may want to cut the crap.
