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.
