Nick Cannon Launches Pop Culture News Hub

Like BUZZMEDIA, fellow LA media company EQAL is largely all about lending an invisible hand to celebrities on the web. They’ve worked with Tori Spelling, Randy Jackson, Lauren Conrad and now, actor-singer Nick Cannon.

As of Wednesday, Mariah Carey‘s 30-year-old significant other is editor-in-chief of NickCannon.com, an official website relaunched as a content destination focused on celebrity gossip, news and interviews. FishbowlLA imagines Mr. C will be the sharer of more than one future scoop about Mrs. C.

Helping Cannon and his Ncredible team featuring co-managing editor Jamal Jimoh is EQAL’s director of content Adam Wescott, who is officially titled as managing editor of the revamped site. Also assisting from the EQAL end are company editor C.J. Arabia and vice-president of design Tom Walker. Kudos to Walker for the uncluttered retro-style, grey background layout.

Lady Gaga: 2010′s Top Cover Girl

With five Grammy award nominations, a spot on Time’s 100 most influential people of the year list, and eight MTV Video Music Awards in the past 12 months, Lady Gaga had a wildly successful 2010.  One more accolade that the “Fame Monster” can add to her resume is an undisputed spot atop the 2010 print throne.  According to WWD, an Audit Bureau of Circulations report reveals that Gaga-centric issues sold better than any other celeb and the trend is not expected to slow down in 2011.

Lady Gaga’s July 8 Rolling Stone double issue sold 245,000 copies, nearly three times above the title’s January-September 2010 average.  Gaga’s April 2010 Cosmopolitan was a major hit as well, selling 1.7 million copies and making its mark as the magazine’s leading issue through October.  Lady Gaga was responsible for the year’s second most successful issue of Vanity Fair as her September cover sold 450,000 copies and trailed only Angelina Jolie’s cover.   She also opened 2010 with a bang by appearing in the January issue of Elle, one which held up as their third highest seller through October.

Lauren Conrad’s Fashion Victim PSA

Laguna Beach and The Hills may be over, but Lauren Conrad continues to milk her reality TV star fame – most recently with a new book about fashion called Style. This joke PSA to promote the book would be a lot funnier if reality TV actresses could, you know, act. Sympathies to whoever wrote the script.

Season of Wishes: Make-A-Wish Brings Nicest Child On The Planet To The Grove

77939352BK083_The_Grove_Chr.JPGWant to feel petty and small? Read on:

The Make-A-Wish Foundation, the organization that makes sick kids each and every dream come true granted the wish of a child who wants to give other kids a bunch of toys.

After prolonged hospital stays (due to a rare condition that causes tumors to grow throughout her body) 12-year-old Madison Smith said her wish was to provide toys for all the kids at Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA this Christmas.

Madison saw her wish come true at The Grove’s Christmas tree lighting spectacular last night, when a band of Santa’s elves delivered a bag full of toys headed for the hospital. Also on stage were The Cheetah Girls, Goo Goo Dolls, Mannheim Steamroller, Sean Kingston and Emmy Rossum.

Little Madison is pictured here with Lauren Conrad, who, we’re guessing, is rethinking her Christmas wish list now.
