FUTURE EXES
Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols Split

Guess these two didn't have a romantic Valentine's Day..or a genuinely good one.

Sophia Bush, 29, and Austin Nichols, 31, who have been on-and-off for six years are calling it quits.

Good to know she doesn't believe in settling for Mr. Wrong. This isn't the first time she's dated a cast member. Bush's past relationships have also been with her fellow One Tree Hill co-stars.

Back in 2005, she and Chad Michael Murray got hitched. The two dated for two years but the marriage lasted only five months amidst reports of Murray's infidelity.

CW Up Fronts 2010

Yes, I know....I'm a little late on posting the news. However, last week, the CW Television Network held their annual Up Front Presentation at Madison Square Garden.

Many cast members from the shows were in attendance including 90210's Tristin Wilds, Smallville's Tom Welling, The Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev, One Tree Hill's Robert Buckley, and Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford.

Besides seeing all the faces of Hollywood's up and coming, there was business to be taken care of. Inside, the CW executives came with a few announcements including the renewal and possibly final season of Smallville, two new series coming this Fall entitled Nikita starring Maggie Q and Hellcats featuring Ashley Tisdale.

Featured Artist Profile: Ingrid Michaelson

“All we can do is keep breathing” – Ingrid Michaelson

This 29-year-old New York based singer songwriter, is a unique talent with inspirational sounds you don’t want to miss. Her music can be described as the epitome of soothing and relaxing tunes, with an uplifting touch. She keeps her lyrics very straight forward, and melodies “deceptively simple”, with catchy and repetitive chorus lines. It is the simplicity of her music that yields the true beauty of her talent. Some may compare her music to Regina Spektor’s, and she replies by stating “Yes, I hear aspects of [her] music in mine. I don't ever want to replicate, I just get inspired to push myself past my comfort zone...and that always makes for better music.” Instrument wise, her albums incorporate her distinctive vocals mixing with light guitar, piano, and ukulele .
