Justin Timberlake

Unless you've been living on another planet (or tryin' to go to space like Lance Bass,) you probably know that Justin Timberlake, from *NSYNC, has been a busy boy. His first solo album, Justified, hits stores November 5, 2002 and the first single, Like I Love You, is hott! The song isn't the only thing that's hot though - Justin's sportin' a new hip-hop look. That boy would even look good wearing a barrel. Check out www.justintimberlake.com for more info.

Nick Carter

Nick Carter, of the Backstreet Boys, is also doing his own thing. Nick's solo release, Now or Never, hits stores October 29, 2002. The first single, Help Me, is already gettin' play on the radio. If he is your fave BSB boy, then pick up a copy of Nick Carter's solo CD and show him your love.

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland, of Destiny's Child, teamed up with Nelly for a duet called Dilemma. The song's been really popular so Sony bumped up the release date of her solo CD, Simply Deep, to October 22, 2002. The first single Stole has hit the radio so if ya haven't heard it yet, phone your local station and request it. Check out www.kellyrowlandonline.com.

Beyonce Knowles

Beyonce Knowles of Destiny's Child teamed up with Mike Myers for Austin Powers in Goldmember and had a hit single with Work it Out. Beyonce is also releasing a solo CD in March of 2003 titled Dangerously in Love. Head to www.beyonceonline.com for the scoop.

Michelle Williams

Nick Lachey

98 Degrees hottie Nick Lachey is also taking a drive down Solo Avenue and hopes to release his CD in early 2003. Nick told mtv.com that, "It's going to be a little different from what people are used to hearing 98 Degrees do. It's going to have a rock/soul feel, kind of like George Michael. I've always been a huge fan of his and there's just a huge void for someone to do that kind of guitar-driven, soulful music." For updates on Nick Lachey's solo project head to www.98degrees.com.

  • What do you think of solo projects? Are they a recipe for disaster or do they bring creative energy back to the band?

    • Maybe, if the music is different.
    • Yes, if they stay true to their roots, their band!

    Here are my top 9 worst TV shows I have ever watched. 1. Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig (tie) 2. Marvin Marvin 3.  Pickle and Peanut 4 Fred Figglehorn  5. Annoying Orange 6. Austin and Ally 7. Dog on a Blog 8. The Day My Butt Went Psycho (I'm not Canadian but it doesn't look like a good show) 9. Lab Rats  Basically every show that has a laugh track.  If you are looking for a good show, watch Doctor Who. No laugh tracks, humor is used properly, good storyline, DOESN'T take place in a school ALL OF THE TIME (well, it does in some episodes such as school reunion) The cast isn't full of teenagers and parents won't get so annoyed of the show. It's about a 900 year old time lord (who looks like a human) that travels in a TARDIS. He has 13 regenerations and almost always has a female companion with him. He is the last of his species so he's always lonely on Earth.

Plus he said MOST on cartoon Network. Not every show. I have to agree. There is better TV out there... Such as.... *takes deep breath* Doctor Who (Better than ALL of the trash they show on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and most cartoon network shows combined) Old spongebob (not the new spongebob episodes) Sherlock (hmmm I have never watched the show but i have heard it's awesome) I worship the BBC for making good things happen to the world.
