What to read, see, and do this week For more, go to Parade.com/picks LOVE STORIES AT THE MOVIES 1. 2 DAYS IN NEW YORK Chris Rock and Julie Delpy bring tart humor to their roles as a couple besieged by her bawdily eccentric French family, in town on a visit. Delpy also directed and cowrote this comedy, a sequel of sorts to 2007’s 2 Days in Paris. (Rated R) 2. HOPE SPRINGS Can this marriage be saved? Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) have settled into a relationship that’s so quiet it’s nearly catatonic. What they learn during a week of intensive couples therapy is moving, funny, and most of all eye-opening. (Rated PG-13)

T HE HE S’MORE THE MERRIER Gather round the campfire: Aug. 10 is National S’mores Day. Celebrate the sweet, sticky classic with your own creative version. Mint? Toffee? Vegan? In a cone? Visit dashrecipes.com /smores for a roundup

of inspired recipes from across the Web. For the campingaverse, we even uncovered a few that require no fire at all: Think s’mores waffles, peanut butter s’mores bars, and s’mores pie—to be enjoyed in the cool comfort of your bugfree living room.

50 YEARS AGO today, Marilyn Monroe was found dead at age 36 in her Brentwood, Calif., home—but the blond bombshell remains as fascinating as ever. Her legendary sex appeal is on display in two new retrospectives: Marilyn & Me, a portrait of the star’s final years by photographer Lawrence Schiller, and Marilyn in Fashion, which proves who really wrote the book on “iconic style.”

3. CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER Parks and Recreation’s Rashida Jones (who cowrote) shines as a woman who’s deeply ambivalent about splitting from her husband (Andy Samberg, proving he has a future beyond Saturday Night Live). (Rated R)

CELEBRATE JULIA! Her name’s synonymous with French cooking, but in the biography Dearie, Bob Spitz says the word fun is what best describes Julia Child’s way with food. Born 100 years ago Aug. 15, she was PARADE’s food editor from 1982 to 1986; every Friday in August you can find a Julia classic at facebook .com/dashrecipes. Read a dishy excerpt from Dearie at Parade.com/julia.

READY FOR PRIME TIME Joshua Radin’s sensitive, folksy pop songs have helped set the mood on hit TV shows from Grey’s Anatomy to The Bachelorette. His new album, Underwater, delivers more charming, scene-stealing tunes—including “Tomorrow Is Gonna Be Better” and “The Greenest Grass”— sung with the intimacy of a whisper but drenched in soul.

e start with a riddle: four twentysomething pop singers, usually greeted by throngs of hyperventilating girls, pile out of a car and land face-to-face with a woman old enough to be their mother. How many seconds before they lose interest? The typical young man would be scanning over my shoulder in the time it takes him to say, “Excuse me, ma’am.” These guys, however, belong to Nickelodeon’s boy band Big Time Rush, and their behavior would make any mom proud. They have no idea yet that I’ll be interviewing them, but they smile and extend hands. They politely ask if they’re in the right parking lot in Columbus, Ohio. When it’s clear we’re all in the wrong place, they chat about the two dogs that have joined them for their 60-plus-city concert tour. James Maslow, 22, unzips a cat-size carrier to reveal Fox, a 1-year-old Alaskan Klee Kai. “I’ve always loved big dogs,” he says, shrugging his shoulders. “He’s a husky I put in a dryer.” August 5, 2012 • 7

on this 96-degree day. When asked if they like each other as much as it seems, they light up like fireflies. “Yeah,” says Logan. “We argue like brothers, but we love each other.” Good thing. They’ve been virtually inseparable since 2009, after Nickelodeon cast them as a frolicking foursome that becomes a pop band and sings through life’s capers. The show’s creator, Scott Fellows, modeled the story line after the 1960s show The Monkees, though in this version, the squeaky-clean leads started as high school hockey players. But as with their TV predecessors, Big Time Rush have become an offscreen phenomenon, complete with hit records and countless girls whose knees buckle in syncopated swoons at the sight of them. “This is not a new story. It started with Frank Sinatra and all those screaming bobby-soxers,” says pop culture critic Elayne Rapping, professor emerita of American Studies at the University at Buffalo. “You’d rather have girls attracted to the good boys like Big Time Rush.” Her laugh is full of mischief. “I was attracted to the bad boys. I loved the Rolling Stones.” The Rolling Stones? One look at Mick Jagger and Mom banned him from our house. No matter. Being the mo dutiful child, I was oldest, most drawn to the good boys. I was in first grade when the Beatles debuted on T Ed Sullivan Show The on Feb. 9, 1964. That night, I sat frog-legged in front of the TV, mesmerized. I’d just met my future hu husband.

A few steps away, Carlos Pena Jr., 22, furrows his brow as he coaxes his 2-year-old German shepherd, Sydney, out of her crate. Booties are strapped to her front feet. Carlos squats and looks into the dog’s eyes as he speaks. “She burned her paws on the tarmac,” he says. “They said she’ll be fine, but she’s hurting right now.” Kendall Schmidt, 21, and Logan Henderson, 22, join James in consoling the pooch. “You’ll be okay, Sydney.” “Good girl, Sydney.” “Aw, poor Sydney.” A cynic would say this is just part of Big Time Rush’s happy act. A cynic would be wrong. Over the next four hours, these band members mix it up with dozens of strangers during a photo shoot for PARADE at Grandview Heights High School. They never complain or swear, never throw a fit. They are a frenetic bundle of inside jokes and gentle ribbing, relying on each other to get through all the leaping, dancing, and running in polyester school jackets required

Manner Up! Modern etiquette made easy

Q: A certain coworker clips her fingernails during the workday in our communal space. We find this unprofessional but aren’t comfortable approaching her directly. What do you suggest? —Name withheld

A: Unprofessional? How about gross? Before she moves on to flossing her teeth and trimming her nose hairs, ask your supervisor to issue a companywide directive: Anything more than, say, touching up makeup is considered personal grooming and should be done at home. That way, no one will have to approach her about this issue, and Ms. Clippy won’t feel singled out for her unfortunate habit. —Judith Newman

Big Time Rush | from page 10

the official series premiere on Jan. 18, 2010, catapulting the show into Nickelodeon’s ratings stratosphere. Both of the band’s albums, BTR in 2010 and Elevate in 2011, debuted in Billboard ’s Top 15. A theme in all the music: Every girl is beautiful and can break a cute guy’s heart. Not all TV critics have been kind, but the members of BTR have a sense of humor about who and what they are: grown men pretending to be teenagers in a band born for TV. The show requires them to be over-the-top silly, but they’re serious about their music; like prefab boy bands before

The OTHER BOYS OF SUMMER

ONE DIRECTION

Though they were runners-up in our poll, this British import has been dubbed the second coming of the Beatles. “To be even mentioned in the same sentence is incredibly humbling,” says Zayn Malik. The group

them, they’re learning to exercise creative control. They cowrote eight of the songs on Elevate. If you want to get to know the guys of BTR, do not ask about dating; past missteps have made them fiercely protective of their girlfriends’ privacy. But ask how they’re growing as artists and you’re in for an enthusiastic tutorial. “The second time around we were like, ‘This is our band. We should be contributing to what it is,’ ” says James. Kendall raises a foot and wiggles it. “We also decided, ‘Hey, we’re grown men. We can pick out our own shoes for the cover.’ ” Their concerts are ambitious and tightly choreographed. Their early days of small venues have grown into arenas packed with screaming girls, many as young as 6. An entire generation is now weaving memories with BTR. The band knows this and treads gently, each member taking turns as group ambassador. After one photo setup with

(from left, Niall Horan,18; Harry Styles, 18; Liam Payne, 18; Malik, 19; and Louis Tomlinson, 20) parlayed a third-place finish in 2010 on the U.K. version of The X Factor into a $50 million–plus business empire. With

their single “What Makes You Beautiful” a summer smash, the band is working on its second album, due in November. “We’re growing up and getting older,” says Niall, “so the lyrics will be reflective of that.” —Mary Margaret

more than a dozen Grandview Heights girls, James shakes the hand of each one, asks her name, and thanks her for agreeing to be an extra. Carlos makes small talk with them during a break. After each round of racing down a hallway, they check the mood of the girls, who can’t stop giggling. “You okay?” “Sorry it’s so hot.” “We really appreciate you being here today.” They know what it feels like to be treated badly by someone they admire and don’t ever want to be the jerk who harpoons dreams. “How many artists have you seen just walk away and act like it’s not important?” Kendall says. Carlos nods. “I hate meeting my favorite bands because then it just ruins it.” “Yeah,” James adds. “They act like they’re better, and nobody’s better than somebody else. By all means, we’re not perfect, but I think the least we can do for our fans is be nice.” Often, they hear from girls who confess to being despondent but find hope in the music and antics of BTR. “It’s a little hard sometimes,” Kendall says. “To think that you could’ve affected somebody like that is difficult. And for me it’s always a hard one when you see a girl cry.” They focus on the upside of celebrity, Logan says. “For us to even say hi to someone, to change their day around or change something inside of them—that’s a pretty cool feeling.” We’ve come to the end of the shoot. BTR’s publicist promises that lunch is waiting at the arena, where they’ll rehearse for hours. This time, each young man gives middle-aged me a hug. I leave hoping that fame never changes Kendall, Carlos, Logan, and James.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant

What’s more economical, turning off your airconditioning when you leave the house, or letting it run? —Nicole Boyle, Tucson

In general, you should set the thermostat a few degrees higher, turn the fan on “auto,” and let the unit run. Will a ceiling fan reduce my air-conditioning bill? —Lucee Farrow, Biloxi, Miss.

Only if the cooling breeze allows you to set your thermostat higher. Otherwise, a fan will increase your bill: You’ll pay for the energy to run the motor, and the motor itself will add some heat to the air. Also, be sure to turn off the ceiling fan when you leave the room. You don’t want to pay to fan the furniture! Got a question for Marilyn? Visit Parade .com/askmarilyn

Sherri’s Tips

Chicken Divine P “Pair this dish

Actress Sherri Shepherd, winner of a Daytime Emmy for The View and costar of the upcoming Lifetime movie Abducted: The Carlina White Story, whips up this dish for movie nights with friends

cle

My girlfriends and I are always so busy, with the demands of kids, husbands, and life in general, that we decided to set aside a regular girls’ night. We pull the couch away from the wall, grab all available chairs and some wine, and watch a movie. If someone brings tissues, I know we’ll be watching The Notebook. For a great night of laughter, My Cousin Vinny or Tootsie will do just fine. We end the evening with a delicious dinner. I like to make a nice, simple chicken divan. My friends pitch in; cooking together is one way we bond. I also sometimes get into the kitchen and make this dish for my husband, Lamar, and my son, Jeffrey, who is 7. I like to remind them: Mama can throw down, too.

P “You can substitute 2% or whole milk for the heavy cream if you want a lighter dish.”

Chicken Divan 1 large bunch broccoli, trimmed and cut into 4-inch-long spears 1 ∕2 stick (1∕4 cup) unsalted butter, diced 5 Tbsp all-purpose flour 2 cups chicken broth 1 ∕2 cup well-chilled heavy cream 3 Tbsp medium-dry sherry Fresh lemon juice 1 ∕2 tsp salt 1 ∕4 tsp pepper 1 ∕2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese 2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 11∕2 lb total), cooked and sliced thin

1. In a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, cook broccoli for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside, covered. 2. In a heavy saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add broth and bring mixture to a boil. Cook on low, stirring, for 10 minutes or until thick. 3. In a mixing bowl, beat cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, then add to flour mixture, along with sherry and lemon juice to taste. Season

with salt and pepper. 4. Arrange broccoli on a flameproof platter. Top with half the sauce. Stir ¼ cup Parmesan into other half of sauce. Arrange chicken on broccoli, pour remaining sauce over top, and sprinkle mixture with remaining ¼ cup Parmesan. 5. Broil, about 6 inches from heat, for 1 minute or until sauce is golden and bubbling. SERVES: 6 | PER SERVING:

370 calories, 13g carbs, 32g protein, 20g fat, 120mg chol, 560mg sodium, 3g fiber

P “If you don’t have a flameproof platter, serve the chicken in a 2-quart gratin dish or another shallow casserole dish.”

with a simple arugula salad. The bitterness of the greens will balance the flavors of the chicken. You can also serve this with a side of rice. Then break out some bread and a really great wine and you’re good to go.”
