Sons Of Ex-NBA Players Joining Same Team

Michigan would be unstoppable at a father-son tournament

It's probably not a good sign for the future of Michigan basketball that there may be more star power in the stands at Crisler Arena next season than on the court.

Jordan Dumars, son of ex-Pistons star Joe Dumars, will be a sophomore at Michigan this season. Jon Horford and Tim Hardaway Jr. are part of this season's incoming freshman class. And then on Tuesday, class of 2012 wing Glenn Robinson III, son of former Purdue star Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson, announced that he has committed to the Wolverines.

"I just talked to my mom and dad and coaches and everybody in my family," the younger Robinson told UMHoops.com. "Yesterday I just started to like it more and more and I figured there was no point in waiting. Michigan is where I want to go. They have a great academic program and basketball program. I just like everything about Michigan and that's where I want to be. I think I'll fit perfectly."

Big Ten fans might be curious why Robinson wouldn't attend Purdue like his father, but the answer is because the Boilermakers haven't shown much interest so far. In fact, Michigan was the only Big Ten scholarship offer Robinson had along with the likes of Colorado, Valparaiso, Missouri State and others.

If recruiting the sons of NBA players is going to be coach John Beilein's unusual niche, then maybe the greatest irony is the lone legacy he tried to bring to Michigan but failed to land. That would be Glen Rice Jr., the son of the former Michigan star who now starts at guard for Georgia Tech.

Even without the Rices, a father-son exhibition game at Michigan would draw a lot of fans the next few years. Maybe the kids will improve with time, but right now the smart money would be on the elders. "Celebrities Say Hello Videos"

Leave it to Lady Gaga to make sure the 2010 MTV VMA Awards

Gaga Wows, Snooki Shows Off Her Bangs, Katy Perry Brings Her Fiance in Her Hand on VMAs Red Carpet

Leave it to Lady Gaga to make sure the 2010 MTV VMA Awards got off to a fashion-forward start-the new Queen of Pop brought a new look to the red carpet and, of course, a touch of political controversy.

The inimitable Lady Gaga arrived in a dress by the late Alexander McQueen: the flowing regal gown wrapped her body in royal shades of gold, dark reds and deep greens. The whole look brought to mind a medieval monarch -- only most ancient queens didn't wear metallic golden feathers on their heads that looked like a Mohawk crossed with a Trojan helmet of war.

Naturally, like any royalty worth her weight in gold, Gaga arrived with military protectors. In Gaga's case, her Ladyship was flanked by servicemen and servicewomen who had been discharged from the military for refusing to go along with the US' controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Gaga even directly dissed the policy in her red carpet interview and vocalized her support for SDN.org, a 17-year-old organization formed in reaction to DADT policies.

All in all, Gaga's unforgettable entrance brought to mind her "Alejandro" video by combining commentary about gays in the military with religious iconography. The religious element to Gaga's dress was less noticeable but still present-there appeared to be the face of a saint sewn onto the décolletage of her dress, bringing to mind Renaissance-era religious paintings.

MTV's reality stars made a splash on the red carpet as well. The "Jersey Shore" cast toned down their blown-out hairdos and revealed more traditionally classy hairstyles and outfits. Although Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino (on the left) and the rest of his Jersey Shore friends and frenemies showed up looking like Red Carpet veterans, it was, of course, Snooki who boasted the most shocking fashion switch of all her colleagues. Dropping the sky-high pouf that's become her trademark, Nicole Polizzi sported something we never expected to see her with-bangs! She even appears to be straightening her hair these days, but don't think she's lost her party girl edge entirely. Snooki's dress was a one-shoulder mini dress with loud swirling turquoise patterns. Even if her hairstyle is more reserved, her bold dress and still speak volumes about her brassy personality (as does her signature tan, which doesn't seem to have faded one bit!).

In 2004, producer Sean "Diddy" Combs returned with Making the Band 3, this time searching for the next female super group.[4] With the help of choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson, vocal trainer Doc Holiday and talent manager Johnny Wright, he set out on a multi-city search and chose twenty young singers out of almost 10,000 young women.[4][5] While seven women remained, Combs became discontent with the level of talent remaining in the competition, and eventually decided not to form a band.[4] He did, however, give a reprieve to three contestants he felt deserved another chance, including then-best friends Aubrey O'Day and Aundrea Fimbres, whose close bond originally formed early in the season.[4] The three contestants became the first to appear in Season 2 of the show.[4]

Afterwards, Combs once again pressed his team to audition new young women for the group.[4] Finally, twenty young women were chosen and moved into a loft in New York City.[4] Viewers had become invested in O'Day and Fimbres's friendship, naming them "the AUs" and "Aubrea" (portmanteux of their first names put together), as they watched the two compete all over again for positions in the group.[4][6] As the competition's challenges increased, their friendship seemed to become the foundation upon which the group was being built.[4] In addition, O'D ay emerged as the show's breakout star.[4][5]

Founded by choreographer Robin Antin in 1995, the Pussycat Dolls began as a burlesque dance revue based in Los Angeles, spawned a second revue in Las Vegas, grew into an A-list phenomena with a revolving cast of guest celebrities, and eventually became a recording act with a number one dance hit. It wasn't long after launching its revue that the troupe began attracting actresses and models who wanted to become a Pussycat Doll for a night. Christina Aguilera, Pamela Anderson, Kelly Osbourne, Pink, Britney Spears, Carmen Electra, and Gwen Stefani are just some of the names who donned lingerie and pinup costumes and joined the Dolls for their flirtatious shows. An appearance in the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle was followed by numerous television appearances, most with Carmen Electra.
