Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!

Happy Christmas Eve to one and all, and in case I don't get to writing before then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as well. I'm off to New York on Boxing Day for a week, so I should have plenty to write about in the New Year. Love To You All.

Lucky Leo

Leonardo DiCaprio has been a lucky boy these days. Two top-grossing films in the last couple of months (The Departed and Blood Diamond) and now he has been nominated twice for a Golden Globe in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (drama) for his roles in these films.

I saw The Departed a few weeks ago, and I really enjoyed it, particularly his performance (so I do believe he is worthy of a nomination), and I hear that Blood Diamond is meant to be one of the best performances of his career (again...worthy). I don't know how I feel about people being nominated twice in the same category though. I mean it pretty much guarantees the person the win (which usually makes me happy, if they're worthy), but it pretty much fucks over the other nominees, and if they do give it to someone else....the academy looks like a bunch of assholes.

Tough luck for the other actors, nobody said life was fair though.

Dirt Never Looked So Good

I just wanted to post this promo picture for Courtney Cox-Arquette's new show "Dirt", because I think it is important to keep things beautiful around the Christmas holiday.

All I know about the show is that Courtney plays an editor-in-chief for a celebrity tabloid magazine. The show premieres on January 2nd on the FX channel.

Reichen VS. Perez

Reichen Lehmkuhl has posted on his myspace page that he wants to sue gossip website owner Mario Lavendeira (aka Perez Hilton) for inflammatory statements and slander, and he is calling all other celebrities who have been vilified on to do the same.

I'm not sure how that would work exactly, or if that is even a winnable case. Reichen, who was a former star on the Amazing Race, and now author and boyfriend to Lance Bass (for those who have no idea who he is, which is very possible), has also asked for the public to boycott the website and it's advertisers (wherein Lavendeira makes his profits) in order to get the site shut down.

I will admit that Perez does focus on Reichen and Lance quite a bit. From having a part in outing them both (which is pretty much the time I stopped reading his site, because I find the very idea of outing people particularly irksome), to accusing Reichen of cheating on Lance, and stating that he was a crystal meth addict, and then calling him a media whore because he wrote a book (which, I think he insinuated was a book of lies and fabricated stories in order to keep him in the spotlight).

However, can't Perez just claim freedom of speech and be done with it? And it's not like he's the only gossip site that speaks poorly of celebrities (but Perez does seem to make up his own stories alot of the time which could hurt his case).

Anyway, if you want to read the full post from Reichen's myspace (and the hilarious comments that follow), the link is below. Good luck to each. Even though I personally side with Reichen (not because I think he's right exactly, but just because I don't like Perez Hilton).

Christina Wears Fur, And People Ain't Happy

One of my favorite actresses, Christina Ricci, wore a natural fur coat on the front cover of the September issue of W magazine, and people were/are not pleased about it. As soon as the issue hit news stands many online fan sights dedicated to the diminutive actress closed down their services because they were offended by the notion that Christina liked to wear fur.

If you visit , they have posted the following statement.


"Well, that's it. I've had this Christina Ricci fan page for almost 8 years (since January 1999), but I recently found out Christina doesn't appear to have a problem wearing fur. Well, I do. I also have a problem with people who wear fur. Conclusion: I have a problem with Christina. And now that problem is solved, because I don't have a website about her anymore, so I no longer have anything to do with her."

Wow, people are so fuckin' sensitive these days. It's like the Dixie Chicks fiasco all over again. In fact Christina recently had to release a statement of apology. It read...

"I never meant to hurt nor anger anyone with my insensitivity. For what it is worth, I have received the message loud and clear and will not be wearing fur in the future. I apologize for my offensive actions."

Okay, I am not going to state my personal opinions on fur wearing (because animal activists will Fuck You Up!), however, the magazine editors probably asked her to wear it. It's not like it came straight out of her closet. So I really can't be as offended by this "offensive action" as I apparently should be.

It made for a nice cover photo, whether or not Rudolph and Blitzen had to suffer to make her cloak. In other Christina news, she has a couple new movies under her belt that are set for release soon, including Home of the Brave, and Black Snake Moan.

My Worst Nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!

Prepare for fire to rain down from the heavens people, as I have just been informed that Halle Berry is releasing an album in the New Year.

I'm frightened Aunty Em, I'm Frightened.

The (so far rumoured) 13 track album from EZ Records is to be released on February 6, 2007. The track listing is as follows.

1) Miss Sexy (God help me it's bad)
2) No Problem
3) Sunshine
4) How You Been? feat. Jamie Foxx (Quickly getting worse)
5) Like That
6) Around
7) Lazy (feat. Lupe Fiasco)
8) Your Love Is Always Good
9) Not Today (I'm Not In The Mood)
10) Write Me
11) Love & Emotions
12) Singing To You
13) Go Left (feat. Bun B. and Timbaland)

Of course I'm not saying that actresses should not be singers as well (some are actually able to pull it off), but the thing is....she'll be everywhere if she is successful, and I can barely put up with her presence in the spotlight as it is. You've made one good film in your career Halle, don't press your luck with me.

Sarah Silverman - Give The Jew Girl Toys

"If you ask yourself what would Jesus do, he'd say give the Jew girl toys". Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate it.

The Reaping Trailer

This is the trailer for the new Hilary Swank movie. It looks like an awesome premise for a movie, it will probably be horrible though. Most movies that look this good turn out to be shit, and she is due for a bad movie. She hasn't really had one since The Core. Girls who live in their cars are fuckin' smart, let's face it.

Jennifer Love Hewitt - Can I Go Now? (Live)

I decided to look up some Jennifer Love Hewitt video's and I came upon this clip of her singing the song Can I Go Now? from her album Barenaked, and I had to add it because I am quite impressed by her live vocal skills. Very few actresses turned singers can actually hold a tune while performing live but she does a great job.

New Black Christmas Trailer

Here is the trailer for the remake of the 1974 Canadian Horror Flick "Black Christmas". Given that I really enjoy the original film, I will probably hate the new version but they have added a bit more of a back story for Billy (the psycho on the loose), and they had enough sense to cast Andrea Martin (who played Phil, one of the sorority girls who gets butchered, in the original) in the role of the House Mother. Michelle Trachtenburg and Lacey Chabert star, and as the trailer says, it comes out Christmas day. Never saw that one coming.

Tara Maclean - Evidence

While I wait for a new album from Ms. Tara (and the new Shaye album which comes out in February), I can enjoy this video for the song Evidence from her first album "Silence", which I had not seen prior to posting it here. Fantastic if you ask me.

These Precious Things!

I've just been reading a few insider tidbits and recent quotes from Tori Amos about her next studio album and it sounds like it is going to be the complete polar opposite to her last release, 2005's The Beekeeper. Where that album reflected a soft and nurturing side of her persona, Tori has stated that she is now indeed ready to rock on her new project.

"I think that this new work - it's too early to say - but this is a very different chapter. Certainly, since I've been a mother. You haven't really felt this Tori in awhile...I didn't want (Tash) looking and hearing me and thinking, "Oh my God, that's a scary lady!" There are enough scary rock & roll mothers in the world. I'm able to explain now that the woman who comes and reads bedtime stories and hangs out with her is different from the woman who walks behind that piano. I think this is the first time she's able to differentiate that. Now that there's that buffer, there are things in the world it's time to confront. There is an energy that you carry when you're nurturing another life where you're protecting first -- and once you know that cub is out of the way of the hunter's gun, you can be a little more daring." ~Rolling Stone March 30, 2006

It has been confirmed that she is once again working with the sounds of the harpsichord (which she hasn't really used since Boys For Pele), as well as the piano and the Wurlitzer. In other interviews and quotes she has also spoken of a warrior woman who wants to represent herself on this new record.

I can't wait to hear what she comes out with. She is shooting for an April 2007 release. Until then, her box set collection "A Piano", which covers her past 15 years in the music spotlight is available now.

Beyonce! Just Admit You're A Bitch!

I would love Beyonce so much more if she would stop acting like the good little God girl with the big voice, and admitted to the world that she has bitchy Diva Moments. In a recent interview amidst the whirlwind of media reports that she is jealous that her Dreamgirls co-star, Jennifer Hudson is getting more attention for the movie than she is, Beyonce said

"I knew that the character that I played wasn't the star...I'm already a star. I already have nine Grammys. Everyone knows I can sing. I wish I could have gained 20 pounds and played Effie."

Nice one B, you just bragged that you were a winner, and then called Jennifer fat. That is the perfect Diva moment. But then she backtracked on our asses by saying

"She was incredible."

Boo, hiss. All I'm looking for is consistency, the same way you consistently made yourself the lead voice on every Destiny's Child song ever written, leaving the other girls with no solo careers to fall back on (seriously, where have Kelly and Michelle been?). Is that too much to ask?

Miss Jennifer Holiday 1982 Tony Awards - And I Am Telling You

Seeing as how the Dreamgirls Movie release is upon us, I thought we should have a look back on the original broadway production, and the incomparable Miss Jennifer Holiday in a performance of the shows signature song. I'm surprised she doesn't drop dead at the end of this performance. Hold on to your hats ladies and gentleman, and eat your heart out Jennifer Hudson, this is musical theatre at its most glorious.

How Cute Is She?

Wow, two Jennifer Garner posts in a row. crazy Like a FOX are we? This post however is more about how cute Jennifer's baby, Violet Affleck is. It also proves my point about Jenn looking better out in the real world lately, than in the public eye. These photo's were taken a few days ago, when the two celebrated Violet's first birthday at an Italian restaurant in California. She's got tiny burrets in her hair, if that's not cute I don't know what is. Papa Ben was no where to be seen. Sad really.

Jenn kinda looks like a 15 year old babysitter (drinking a long island icedtea) than a 30 something Mother.

Not Your Prettiest Alias!

I had an entry entitled Jennifer Garner Is Hot, and after these pictures I may have to rethink my standing. On the Elle Magazine cover (above) she looks half past dead (which either means they airbrushed her too much, or not enough), and at the GQ Men Of The Year party below, she has horrible frizzy hair and a God-awful purple cocktail dress on.

This is not an Alias we like at all. Get some help Jenn, we're concerned. Lately you look better when you're going to the supermarket in Boston, than at a glitzy hollywood party. Maybe you should try pretending that the paparazzi are grocery baggers. Huh!? ....Huh!?

Janet To Excite The Billboard Awards

Janet Jackson will be opening the Billboard Awards (on Fox) tonight with a special performance of her single "So Excited". The singer who was seen in rehearsals donning a Jackson 5 t-shirt, has admitted that the performance will be a bit of a mix of old and new Janet. I'm feeling a bit sick today, so I hope I don't fall asleep tonight before it comes on.

Janet has also recently been divulging information about her 2007 world tour.

"It's going to be a retrospective of my 20 years, and you know the choreography is going to be crazy. I'm excited about the ideas that Gil (choreographer and long time backup dancer)and I have come up with and I can't wait to hit the road".

The next single from 20 Y.O. is the mid-tempo, groovalicious track "With U". Enjoy the show tonight.
Sidenote: I'm LOVING the new short hair. Hot.

The Education Of Jennifer Connelly

Yeah! One of my favorite actresses, the delightfully elegant Jennifer Connelly is on the December/January cover of Interview magazine, discussing her new film Blood Diamond with Leonardo DiCaprio, her kids, and working in Africa during filming.

I just spent my lunch break watching interviews with her on youtube, and now I stumble upon this. How coincidental. I'll be watching Labyrinth for the 5,006th time tonight.

Short Stuff Flips The Bird

This may be the cutest picture of a celebrity couple I have ever seen. Michelle Williams is so tiny compared to Heath, that or she is standing extremely far behind him (she looks like she's 11 years old in that bathing suit too, she just needs a pair of water wings). None the less when you have a family outing at the cement pond flipping off the paparazzi....that's true intimacy ladies and gentlemen.

PS. They ain't not gettin' hitched yet. But I hear their baby, Matilda is reading at a college level. You'll either get that joke/reference or you won't.
Hint Hint. Think Roald Dahl.

Katie Sits At The Kids Table

Does anyone else find it disturbing that Tom Cruise' daughter Isabella looks almost older (if not a little shorter) than Katie Holmes in this wedding picture? Katie just looks like one of his kids, if it weren't for the wedding dress, you wouldn't even think Katie was the bride in this party. I know that the age difference is hardly a new news subject and I never really gave it two seconds thought since I hate Tom too much to spend absurd amounts of time thinking about him, but when you see a picture like this....
Congrats to the happy couple though. I hope you have a great time jumping up and down on sofa's together.

Woah Nelly!

Somewhere in between Promiscuous and my boredom, Nelly Furtado became sexy. I always thought she was a cute sort, but for the new video "Say It Right" (and the promotion of said song) she has straightened her usually curly locks, added bangs to the look and glammed up her hot single mama image. This is the first single I have enjoyed from her new album, and I owe it all to the look....okay fine, yes it's a good song too.

Darling Print Ad

My heavens, Kylie Minogue is looking gorgeous in the new print ad for her fragrance, Darling. The fragrance reportedly achieved record sales in it's first day of availability in her native Australia, having the most successful launch of a fragrance at Myers Department Store (Australia's largest retailer).

In other news, Channel 4 in the UK will be broadcasting Kylie's Showgirl Homecoming Tour in early 2007 (so let's cross our fingers for a new concert DVD to add to our collections on this side of the pond). The new layout for the show includes most of the original set list with a few new elements IE. adding the song Burning Up from her Fever album with a slight Madonna tribute thrown into the mix of it (the spoken word section of Vogue), and her newest song White Diamond, which will hopefully be included on the new album.

Finally, her 2007 calendar is the biggest selling calendar from a female artist so far in the UK. This is the fifth year in a row that Kylie has topped the calendar sales charts.

harry potter and the order of the phoenix trailer

Here is the teaser trailer for the new Harry Potter film. It looks as if it will be a good one. It's actually been a great franchise of movies, I haven't heard any complaints from the fans of the books. Well done kids.

Debbie Downer

This probably won't be up for very long (since NBC removes everything good from youtube) but I don't care, this is my favorite Debbie Downer skit. I love when they can't make it through without laughing. Please enjoy despite the presense of Ms. Lohan.

New Deborah Music, Old Deborah Sound

I was kind of expecting a more up to date sound from Deborah Gibson seeing as how she is working with Neal Pogue who has worked with the likes of Pink and Outkast. but her new song "Famous" sounds like a scrap from her Body, Mind, Soul album from 1993. I hope this isn't a taste of things to come, if so I will be disappointed. for those who care to give it a listen. You never know somebody might like it, it's not horrible, just not what I was expecting. Maybe it will grow on me.

The Holidays Are Officially Upon Us

As some of my friends know, the Christmas season doesn't start for me until after I have watched the Santa Claus Parade on television. Up until that point I am unable to listen to Christmas music, think about Christmas shopping, or even fathom that the holiday is even approaching. Well, today is the day that the holiday season begins. Now, I know that watching it on TV with the cheesy jokes from the meteorologist and the news broadcaster from Global News, can be sort of annoying for some (I even find myself saying shut up to the TV every once in awhile), but it sets up my mood for the entire season (ie. brings back a little of that childhood wonderment and fun), and so it has become a tradition of mine to watch the entire parade and then start listening to some of my Christmas Cd's.

Always first on my list is Star Bright by Vanessa Williams, I just find that to be one of the finest albums in my collection, and this year I have Bette Midler's Christmas album to look forward to. Truth be told, I will be taping the Parade this year and watching it later tonight due to a busy rehearsal schedule for my musical theatre class and my play I am preparing for, but even if I have to stay up until midnight I will be watching today. Tradition is a tricky thing, isn't it?

Nerina Pallot - Everybody's Gone To War

I love the concept for this video, war in the supermarket. She's gorgeous, but it's too bad she looks like she has wonky eye in the beginning. By the way, I just learned her last name is pronounced Pal-O (no T)who knew.

Sex Is On!

I was going to wait and add this story when I was sure that the news was positively true, but it's taking awhile to be confirmed and I'm too excited to not write about it.

It has been reported that the four glamorous gals of Sex And The City are back in talks to make the much talked about film version of the HBO hit series. The film, which will show the next chapter in the lives of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte, was first scrapped after complaints from actress Kim Cattrall about pay raises and wanting full script approval before proceeding (which was partly denied). But now, all of the girls camps have been in talks to make the film a reality.

Given that this was first reported a couple of weeks ago and it still hasn't been confirmed nor denied is a good sign to me. If it wasn't true, surely someone would have sussed it out by now. Keep your fingers crossed kids.

Update: I just read that Kristin Davis is excited by the idea of the movie, and hopes that the other girls (mainly Kim and Sarah Jessica) can sort their differences and allow the project to happen. Yeah! One down, three to go.

Emma Bunton - Downtown (Full Video)

OMG! This may be the gayest, cheapest, and campiest video I have seen in quite awhile. Naturally I love it. I'm not at all impressed with Emma's covering skills on this song, but the pure camp value of the video makes up for it. It is a song she did for a childrens charity for the BBC, so we really can't ask for anything more than this. Emma's new album entitled "Life In Mono" will be released on December 4th in the UK.

Not Ready To Make Nice...Thank God

If you love Country Music, Sassy girls from Texas, or anyone who hates (and will stand up to) President Bush and his supporters (particularly the ultra conservative types), then please go see the Dixie Chicks Documentary "Shut Up And Sing".

Natalie, Emily, and Martie take us withing the walls of their sisterhood for the three years that proceeded them in the wake of Natalie's now infamous statement to a London concert audience. Through the backlashes, death threats, boycotts, and public outcry for the three liberal chicks to keep their opinions to themselves, the girls take charge, reshaping and rebuilding their career without a hint of remorse, and I say Good For Them.

Personally, when I saw all the footage of what their so-called "fans" were saying about them after the comment, I really was gobsmacked. I could not believe that people living in a country as free and as frivolous as America, could be so angry at a performer for saying something as tame as "We're ashamed the President is from Texas". From being branded the Dixie Sluts to mothers trying to coax their 4 year old kids into saying "Screw the Dixie Chicks", to my favorite quote in the entire film " You can have freedom of speech all you want, but you don't say it on foreign soil, and you don't say it in a public gathering of that size." it really put into perspective how hypocritical and stupid people really are. I'm ashamed that George W. Bush is even from the same planet as me. I hope I don't get death threats now.

Aside from the controversy, the chicks also invite us into their homes, the recording studio, backstage, and even into the hospital room both before and after Emily gives birth to her twins, showing off their incredible (undeniable) talent, their amazingly sharp sense of humour, and their true devotion to each other. Natalie is by far the quickest on her feet when it comes to responses to controversy's and stratagizing new moves to keeping the group on top of the game.

When Toby Keith starts picking on the girls, referring to them in a song, and showing pictures of Natalie and Saddam Hussein photo shopped together, she decides to adorn a t-shirt with rhinestones spelling "F. U. T. K", which she covers up as standing for "Friends United Together for Kindness".

Enough rambling about how great this movie is, if you're not already purchasing tickets to go see it, I'm wasting my breath.

5 out of 5 stars.

You Smell Lovely, Darling!

Kylie Minogue has really been making up for lost time the past few months. Releasing her first children's book, working on material for a new album, rehearsing for her Showgirl Homecoming Tour, and now she has ventured (like so many celebrities before her) into the fragrance industry. She very recently released her first fragrance called "Darling" or "Darl" as it might be called in her native Australia (she admits the Aussies won't be able to resist shortening the word). When asked to comment on the name Kylie stated,

"It's such a warm word. I use it with my friends, my mother uses it with me, and it's a little bit showbiz."

That it is. She has confessed to receiving help from her longtime boyfriend Olivier Martinez in helping to design the perfume. If it makes a man like that happy, I'll buy a gallon of it.

A rare video for Bjork's song "Unravel" from the Homogenic album. I wasn't even aware that she had released this as a single, the video is not included on her video compilation DVD. A happy surprise for me as this song is definately one of my favorite Bjork ballads, and the video is just as breathtaking and simplistic. "My heart comes undone"...Indeed.

The Sweet Escape: Album Cover

I'm loving the album cover for Gwen Stefani's new album The Sweet Escape. It looks very Jem and the Holograms (meaning girly and cartoony). The sad thing is, I hate, Hate, HATE the first single "Wind It Up". I'm really getting sick of these stupid white women rap attempts, it was annoying enough on Hollaback Girl from her last album, she even inspired the once Taylor Dayne voiced Stacey Ferguson (Fergie), to make a living out of singing like this. It just sounds like Mickey Mouse Club acting placed over music. Plus, the fucking sample of the Sound Of Music song "Lonely Goatherd", is as stupid an idea as putting a knife in a toaster.

Sidenote: Fergie Ferg. Stop acting like a raunchy thug bitch, you were on Kids Inc. and you were in a cheesy 90's girl group for God sake. (Nothing against Wild Orchid, I did buy two of their albums lol).

Gwen's album comes out December 5th. Just in time for Christmas, I'm sure that wasn't planned ;)

Beautiful Awkward Pictures

After being let down when I heard that Toni Collette was not chosen for the Sweeney Todd movie to play Mrs. Lovett, I was gorgeously pleased when about a week later my brother handed me a downloaded copy of Toni's debut album entitled "Beautiful Awkward Pictures".

The eleven track album released under the name Toni Collette & The Finish (her band, including husband David Galafassi), was completely written by the Aussie actress, and is a beautiful serving of downplayed evocative folk music. Standout tracks include the optimistic opener This Moment Is Golden, country tinged Johnny's Lips, and the romantic piano ballad first single Beautiful Awkward Pictures.
It's not a musical, but I can watch Connie & Carla if I need that kind of fix. Beautiful album. Give it a listen. 4 out of 5 stars.

Spears Split

Evidently, Britney Spears is not as retarded as we made her out to be, the showgirl who recently showed off her newly svelte figure and new "Madonna Jump video-esque" hairstyle on David Letterman, has finally filed for divorce from Boozey The Clown. She has asked for custody of their two children Sean and Jayden, and will most likely be granted it considering Kevin's musical attempts were beaten by Barry Manilow on the charts. The fucking Jingle Cats could beat him in the charts for God sake. Didn't you learn anything from Eminem? The only way to be successful as a white rapper from Kentucky is to make fun of celebrities, or sing about raping your mother.

Even though this marriage didn't last nearly as long as Whitney & Bobby, it may as well have been 20 years given how utterly annoying they were (and there were no drugs involved, as far as we know, which is the only reason Whitney and Bobby lasted as long as they did, they were too stoned to know that they were still married). Get back to stripping on stage and masturbating with Madonna, Brit. I miss those days.
Update: Kevin Federline's album debuted at # 151 on the Billboard Charts. Talk about having a bad week.

Yah, This Was A Surprise!

I've been quite busy lately, not alot of time to add to my site, but I do have a few stories to cover, and hopefully I will be all caught up before anything else stupid or exciting happens in this twisted little world of ours. The first order of business is this silly Neil Patrick Harris story. Apparently some Canadian website made references to Doogie being a homo, and then he denied it, then confirmed it. Ummmm, didn't he come out in 1996 or am I just on glue? I had a deja vu moment when I read this story.
I have a problem with these websites doing countless stories about a person's sexuality until it forces them to break their "silence", it makes me feel a little bit sorry for them, and to be honest a little uncomfortable. It's like constantly being called a fag as you walk through the halls of your highschool. If a person doesn't want to be vocal about their sexuality, then leave them be.

Good for you anyways Neil. You finally got yourself back on tv.

PS. I'm well aware of the ironies of posting this on a blog for everybody in the world to read, so don't even bother pointing that out.

Studio 1

The new All Saints album, Studio 1 comes out November 16th. The official tracklisting has been listed on as follows.

1) Rock Steady

2) Chick Fit

3) On And On

4) Scar

5) Not Eazy

6) Hell No

7) One Me And U

8) Headlock

9) Too Nasty

10) In It To Win It

11) Flashback

12) Fundamental

The girls were recently on the Brit chatshow Saturday Night Takeaway performing the hot lead single Rock Steady, and they looked like they are having a great time together again. The girls friendship fizzled in 2001 during promotion of their sophomore album Saints & Sinners. They attribute their falling out to a barage of small problems that built up, mixed with lack of communication and resolution. The Appleton sisters even spoke poorly of Shaznay and Melanie in their book "Together". In a recent interview they've stated "We've all spent our time as the naughty children on the stair....and we've thought about what we've done", "We've grown, and we realize that our friendship is more important than the business aspect of things".

If the first single is any indication of things to come, it should be a fantastic comeback project.

Hopelessly Halloween

As I sit in darkness watching Sleepy Hollow, I realized that I completely forgot to say Happy All Hallows Eve to one and all. Hope everyone had an enjoyable night chanting and calling the corners....was that just me? Oh Okay, ummm.....awkward. "Earth, Air, Fire, Water".

Look At The Bitch Now

Whitney Houston is now worthy of my attention. Firstly, she has finally gotten the hint after 100 years of marriage that Bobby Brown is bad for her (Christ, monkeys are more clairvoyant than she is....honest to goodness Monkeys), and has filed for divorce. Secondly, she has been receiving drug rehabilitation treatment thanks (allegedly) to Courtney Love and Clive Davis. Thirdly, point one and two have culminated in her looking fabulous at the recent Carousel Of Hope Ball where she accompanied Davis this weekend. Just look at her. Welcome Back Whitney! Now get with the music making.

Cutest Kid Ever!

Madonna shared the following photo of her new adopted son, David Banda with her husband Guy at the taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show yesterday. The episode (which airs this afternoon), features Madonna live Via-satellite from London for a half hour of the show, clearing up rumours and misconceptions about the adoption.

Is that not the cutest picture you've ever seen?

Shut The Fuck Up

barbra streisand, cursing nyc fan

This is only 9 seconds long but it is so worth it. Ms. Streisand telling the heckling fan to "Shut The Fuck Up". Too Funny.

Dreamgirls Print Ads

I still don't know if I will be going to see the Dreamgirls Movie when it comes out because it has three of my mortal enemies in it, Beyonce (who I'm sort of warming up to since I like quite a few tracks off her latest album), Jamie Foxx (who did one good film and won an Oscar for it, that's bullshit), and Eddie Murphy (who I can only enjoy when he's an animated jackass). But just for the fact that it's Dreamgirls....I may have to see it regardless.

These print ads aren't helping though. The only one that looks good to me is the generic one. *SIGH*! I don't know what to do.

Jennifer Garner Is Hot!

Sorry for the rather obvious title to this post, but it's true, she looks amazing. This is a picture of Jenn at the Hollywood Film Festival's 10th Annual Hollywood Awards (Christ, say that 5 times quick). She was on hand to support husband Ben Affleck who won Best Supporting Actor of the Year (what for, I have no idea). I really miss Alias now. (Look at the rock on that ring finger).

Next up for Jenn is the romantic comedy "Catch And Release" with Timothy Olyphant, Kevin Smith and Juliette Lewis. Plus she is also one of many stars to contribute her voice to the live action "Charlotte's Web" film. Both are due for release in 2007.

My, Uncle Sam How You've Changed

Ryan Phillippe, star of the new Clint Eastwood film "Flags Of Our Fathers" and of course best known as Mr. Reese Witherspoon (they really are a gorgeous couple), is gracing the November cover of "greatest magazine of all time" Interview magazine. Does this man ever age? He always looks exactly the same, no younger, no older. He looks great regardless but the cover picture does look a bit like his head was plastered on someone else's body due to the lighting.

This film might be Ryan's "Walk The Line" according to what I've heard so far. I sort of like him now. Just for the fact that when Reese won her Academy Award he was tipsy from drinking with Shirley MacLaine earlier on in the evening. I love shit like that. Who doesn't want to get blatto with Shirley MacLaine?

Madonna On Oprah

Hey Kids! Don't forget to watch or set your vcr/TiVo to record Madonna on Oprah this Wednesday October 25th. She will be discussing the adoption of baby David, and will probably promote the English Roses sequel. Can't wait!

Happy Viewing!

Update: Half of the the show will be intended for Madonna, and the other half will be a featured interview with The Dixie Chicks about their documentary "Shut Up And Sing". I'd be happier if Oprah did a full hour with each of them, but....what can you do?

Robbie Williams - Rudebox

Robbie Williams - Rudebox

Dear Lord! Why do I find this so funny? This is the newest music video from Robbie Williams. Oh Robbie, how could you? I think this might be the most tongue-in-cheek Robbie has ever gone. It's a little over the top (okay, a lot). But I find him cute that way. ;)

Tara's New Music

One of my other favorite Canadian artists (I have about six and I have already established that Emm and Alanis are two of them), Tara MacLean is releasing her third solo album in January 2007. It has been a long time since Tara has released anything on her own, not since 2000's Passenger which spawned the hits "If I Fall" and "Divided" (the first of which is the first song I ever sang in front of a proper audience) has she been in a recording studio by herself. She has been working with her new husband Ted and ex-husband Bill Bell on the production and writing of the new material. I cannot wait for this album, her voice is so pure, crisp and ethereal, she gives me goosebumps, and she is just as amazing live, so I hope this project will include some solo touring.

In the meantime, Tara has once again teamed up with her two best Gal Pals, Kim Stockwood and Damhnait Doyle, to reform the group Shaye, who's second recording entitled "Lake of Fire" will be released November 7th. The titletrack first single is already circulating on Canadian radio. The tracklisting for the album is as follows...

1) I Don't Wanna Die Today
2) Lake Of Fire
3) We Will Not Be Lovers
4) Stay
5) We Are Water
6) This Is The Moment
7) Ocean Of Sorrows
8) Someway Somehow
9) You're Not Alone
10) So Far Gone
11) I Can't Say
12) Star
13) Tupelo Honey

If you are interested in hearing samples of the album you can do so here .

NBC Doesn't Live To Tell!

I could not be more upset. NBC has decided not to show Madonna mounted on the mirrored cross donning a crown of thorns during the Live To Tell portion of the Confession's Tour telecast on November 20th. Christian groups in America threatened to boycott one of the major sponsors of the telecast, and so NBC has decided that they will not cut the song from the showing but just edit it so you can only see her from certain angles not including the cross or the crown.

Why bother? We know it's there. It's not blasphemous, and if Christians have a problem with it then hey, here's a thought, don't fuckin' watch it. I'd rather they just cut the song altogether, because that is bullshit.

And as far as the Madonna adoption goes, I find it hysterical that.....

1) it was splashed all over the front page of the Toronto Star newspaper

2) it has been deemed a global controversy

3) People seem to have a problem with the star adopting a one year old from Malawi

Let's break it down shall we? She adopted an orphaned boy from an extremely disadvantaged background and has moved him to live in luxury with her and her loving family. God, the members of the media and of the Malawian adoption services are right, she's a horrible horrible person. The fact that moving the boy so early from his village might be illegal, is ridiculous to me. There is no doubt that Madonna can provide a good life for the kid (Hello!?!), and there are worse crimes to commit, don't you think?
