If you aren’t feeling infuriated enough over the state of the world, you’d be wise to check out “Mad About the Boys,” a story in the new issue of Vanity Fair that details Backstreet Boys and ‘NSync Svengali Lou Pearlman’s all-around inappropriate behavior as a liar, fraud, philanderer, thief and creepy old dude who gets off touching the young boys he mentors. Among the story’s many allegations is that Lou molested an underage Nick Carter, a story Nick’s own mother stops just short of confirming. In its brutal character assault of an already shady character (Lou’s in jail for extorting around $500 million from various investors), the story comes off as nothing but sound, citing that various sources (many anonymous and ranging from his right-hand men to his next door neighbor’s gardener) have independently confirmed writer Bryan Burrough’s allegations.
But now, Lou has hit back, talking exclusively to Radar Online…
Sorry to hurt your feelings, but it’s true! The South African native was just named The Sexiest Woman Alive (this year) by Esquire, which is a big deal in the world of hotness! Sure, Charlize is good enough at playing ugly people to win an Oscar, but what she’s best at is looking totally smokin’ in only a tank top. We’re jealous.
Check out more pics below of Charlize looking red carpet sexy. Do you think she deserved the title or was there another hottie you wanted to see almost naked on the cover of Esquire? Give us names! [People. Images: Getty]

She’s baa-aack! And this time she’s in love! For real! Seriously! The queen of Celebreality, Miss Tiffany “New York” Pollard gives us an exclusive scoop on the new season of I Love New York. New York talks about being dumped by Tango, her new dudes, how she plans on holding onto the winner of I Love New York 2 and, maybe most importantly, penises. You probably could have guessed, but now you have confirmation: New York is a size queen and proud of it. The d*** discourse begins after the jump…
Boooooo. This week’s episode of The Hills was just a “Cram Session” of the season thus far with 2 clips of never before seen footage thrown in to entice us uber-fans. Seeing as we already know what happened and the new footage was dumber than Spencer, let’s talk about what really matters – Jen Bunney and Heidi’s (allegedly) new noses. Whose do you think looks better – and faker?
Where’s the best place to see Bruce Springsteen? Don’t make me actually write down the answer – you know it’s Jersey. Those fans without tickets to this evening’s E Street Band bash at Continental Arena in East Rutherford (which is most of the people on the planet) can get a fix. At 8 pm EST, we’re cutting into the show and pulling out a couple performances for you. One tune is definitely “Radio Nowhere,” the blistering firebomb from the singer’s new Magic. The other is a Springsteen classic that the guys are keeping us guessing about. We’ll find out when they tear into it.
And don’t forget: Tivo fiends need to set their controls for the all-Bruce marathon that’s taking place today on VH1 Classic. The channel is awash in documentaries, live performances, “Storytellers” footage, and other great stuff.
If you’re looking to get tickets to some of the E Street shows, the tour rolls on at these stops.
What classic song do you think the band will play tonight on VH1?

Now and then our Tour Survival Guide will check in with rockers about life on the road. VH1’s You Oughta Know artist Brandi Carlile tells us about missing dogs, swallowing gum, and her groupies.
Gumming Up the Works
I used to really like Orbitz, but now I like that gum Stride. It lasts forever. It’s like the everlasting gobstopper in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. [I chew gum on stage] all the time. I get so much sh*t for it because I’m always chewing on stage and people can hear you chewing gum, which is not a good thing. I’m a total gum swallower too.
The Dog Whisperer
[The hardest part of touring is] not having animals around. I feel so much more like myself when there are animals around. If I go to the park [while I’m on tour] and I see squirrels I’m like, “Oh thank god there’s animals.” If I could bring a dog on the road I would be so happy. Someday I will take my dog on the road.
