Uh-oh, it's Sergio. Sergio Valente jeans, those super-snug dungarees that faded with the disco scene in the late '80s, are being relaunched with the same embroidered pockets and skintight fit of days past.

A flood of flashy commercials will be aired during tonight's Grammy Awards on CBS. But none are likely to prove more provocative than one for Soviet, a new line of denim jeans looking for attention. The ad for California viewers features a gang member dressed in a red bandanna. He is suddenly surrounded by gang members dressed in blue bandannas. One guy in blue, speaking in Russian, says, "You don't belong here." The guy in red, also speaking Russian, responds, "None of us belong here."
