Jordin Sparks debuts bangs this week during the Crystal Light Liquid launch held at Maritime Hotel in NYC. “I’m not used to the bangs yet, so I keep blinking,” the American Idol, 23, who is dating singer Jason Derulo, tells me. “I wanted to try something different for the summer.” OK! GALLERY: SEE PHOTOS OF JORDIN SPARKS, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, KELLIE PICKLER, CHRIS DAUGHTRY AND MORE IN THE VALERIE GALLERY So far, so good. “I like them,” she says. “It’s different. Somebody was just like ‘oh my God, it’s like Michelle Obama.’ I wasn’t even thinking that, but it’s a different version of her hair. She pulls it off, so I’ve got to try and have that confidence with it.” OK! GALLERY: JORDIN SPARKS SHOWS OFF HER INCREDIBLE NEW BODY WHILE PERFORMING AT U.S. OPEN With the season finale of American Idol approaching this Thursday, Jordin has selected her pick for the next female winner to win the honor. (No women have taken the title since she won in 2007!) Is she on Team Candice Glover or Team Kree Harrison? OK! GALLERY: JORDIN SPARKS, BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN AND AMBER RILEY LIGHT UP SPARKLE PREMIERE IN HOLLYWOOD “Candice Glover,” she says. “I love her. She’s absolutely fantastic.” She continues, “I usually don’t pick favorites because I don’t like to show favoritism, but Candice is just incredible. She’s absolutely incredible, and I would gladly give her the crown of being the next girl, for sure.” Post-interview, Jordin hosts the world’s largest group game of Words With Friends. Fun times! As for the bangs? It was a short-lived look—she loses the fringe the following day at the Music Biz Awards, and also Saturday when she performs at Wango Tango in California. Oh well!

Now that Barbara Walters announced her retirement today on The View, she is getting ready to end an occupation that has served her well for more than 50 years. The thrice-wed TV icon, 83, shared her secrets for excelling in the workplace last month during the Time 100 Gala in NYC. OK! GALLERY: ANNE HATHAWAY, SARAH JESSICA PARKER AND BARBARA WALTERS SPARKLE AT THE 2012 NYC BALLET FALL GALA “Love what you do, come in early, stay late and don’t bitch,” the mother of one tells me. “That may be the best piece of advice I give you.” Still, Barbara isn’t saying goodbye completely. She’ll retain her executive producer role on The View. OK! GALLERY: SEE PHOTOS OF ELISABETH HASSELBECK, KELLY RIPA, GIULIANA RANCIC, KARDASHIANS AND MORE IN THE VALERIE GALLERY Hm, what would she like to see happen in the next ten years on the gabfest? “In the next ten years, I’d like us all to be alive.” Bonus: We’ll still get to enjoy her quips through summer 2014. Afterwards, her new uniform will likely consist of her signature non-work garb: "jeans and t-shirts.” What will you miss about Barbara? Tweet us @okmagazine. Photo credit: Getty Images
Opening a bit bigger than expected this past weekend and getting ready to explode confetti over crowds at Cannes later this week, Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, is totally ridiculous. It’s a rococo doodle, one full of flash and dazzle and sparkle, but empty inside, which would be an apt metaphor for the titular character if Luhrmann would slow down long enough to establish such things (even if he did bother to try to the make the connection, it would probably be besieged by schizophrenic cutting and accompanied by a Jay-Z song). In fact, it was something of a chore to narrow down the list of the most ridiculous things about “The Great Gatsby” to just five. We could go on and on all day. Oh, and spoiler warning old sport. While we seem to be ragging on “The Great Gatsby” pretty hard (read our review here), it is probably worth seeing, if only to join in the discussion (the title...
